andwidenedeyes asked: essalamu 3aleikom (nice reminder =D ) finals are around the bend- i've memorized the duaa's for studying by heart by now but what i really need (and i'm sure i'm not the only unfortunate one with this problem?) is with my laziness/procrastination? i can't focus on anything, please help.
Salaam wa rahmatullah,
I know, finals can be awfully stressful. And I think duas can go so far; I believe that Allah would not only want us to make dua to Him for assistance and guidance, but do our practical part as well. Hence, we study as well as make dua in order that we become successful beings. I believe that balance and moderation in Islam goes a long way.
Personally, I think that laziness is such a disease; however, not of the limbs, but of the entire body. The reason why we find ourselves lazy is because we find reasons to do things later; this is not what Islam teaches us. Our Prophet RasulAllah could have easily said: well, I’m tired. But he didn’t. Despite all his trials and tribulations, he still found the means to keep going. In the hardest of times, where he watched with his bear eyes how his followers were tortured from limb to limb, he still preached the Oneness of God.
And yet, somehow, we still find ourselves lazy. If Muhammad did all that he did with such hardship, and yet we have little hardship and have much time to do what needs to be done, how are we not surprised when we found ourselves in such a low state of faith? We need to prioritize what is important and what is not. We need to wake ourselves up in the morning hours before Fajr in order to maintain consistency. We need to be organized and clean human beings; this is what Islam intended for us.
InshaAllah if we all keep this in mind, our procrastination might just disperse. Much love, Dee.
try the du’a in surat al-kahf:
rabbana aatina min ladunka rahmatan wa-hayyi’ lana min amrina rashada
our lord give us mercy from you and dispose of our affairs in the right way.
Narrated Shaddad bin Aus:
The Prophet said “The most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is: ‘Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta, Anta Khalaqtani wa ana abduka, wa ana ‘ala ahdika wa wa’dika mastata’tu, A’udhu bika min Sharri ma sana’tu, abu’u Laka bini’matika ‘alaiya, wa Abu Laka bidhanbi faghfirli innahu la yaghfiru adhdhunuba illa anta.” The Prophet added. “If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise.”
Bukhari,Volume 8, Book 75, Number 318.
Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Mali, insha Allah.
Peace and Many Blessings,
I remember being at the masjid a few years ago, listening to a lecture given by one of the imams on dua. This masjid was very immigrant oriented; that is, the lecture spoken in native language with an audience of the ethnicity like that of the imam.
I am no person to decide whether one imam or khatib has enough or not enough knowledge, but what I can say is that we must always (no matter who it is) check up on the sources provided. It is not to say that we are skeptical of the sources, but that we expand our knowledge on the subject.
However, in this particular incident, there were no Quranic sources provided; that’s a problem for me. I’m not a student of hadith, so I can’t tell you that I use them or derive my theology from hadiths, but what I can say is that Quran is my primary source, and if it’s not being utilized, I have a problem.
The imam spoke about how you can’t make dua for people of other faiths; again, there were no sources (that I can recall) to back up this claim. I find this problematic. In this day and age, most of the Muslim Ummah is educated and well learnt reverts who sacrificed their safety and life for this religion in numerous ways. To say that they can’t make dua for their parents who are of other (or no) faith at all is preposterous.
No where in the Quran is this exemplified. Historians even mention that the Prophet Muhammad (saaw) made dua for his people (even those who rejected him) and prayed Salat ul Janaza (the funeral prayer) for those of other faiths.
I would suggest you look deeper into this by listening to the evidences being brought forth upon this claim and verify it with the Quran. I, as a student of Quran, find no problem with making dua for nonbelievers. We are all the creations of God, therefore, we must all pray for one another.
In an effort to eliminate the misconception that most common people have of Jihad. I am starting “The Jihad Project”.
The definition of Jihad that I prescribe to is:
A believer’s internal struggle to live out the Muslim faith as well as possible
I am going to create a youtube video of youtubers all over the world holding a sign saying “___________ is my Jihad”. For example, “ Bulimia is my Jihad” or ” Laziness is my Jihad”
I am going to compile the videos into a single youtube video in an effort to enlighten just a few more people that Jihad does not in fact mean “holy war”.
And please submit your videos! Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit them here!
Thank you for submissions in advance and for any efforts you put towards making this successful.
solicitouslywaiting asked: Salaams! I wanted to ask a question concerning Salaah. I wanted to know what dua/recitations must we say before we begin/initiate prayers? && if so, can you provide other duas that should be said during the prayers itself. Shukran and take cares
I found this website to be very useful!
