          I pray that the brothers and sisters who passed away in Nigeria are in a better place. I can’t believe this is still happening, but don’t worry Allah Subantala will handle these unjust organizations.  Extremists think they are doing us a favor…do us a favor and stop attacking and killing our loved ones.  Islam never condones violence and never will.  When you look at the Muslim countries it’s about standing up together against oppression and hurting others.  Think about the day of Judgement when you stand in front of the Almighty and answer his questions.  Let’s pray for those who were affected in this attack and other hate crime’s.  Peace and blessings to all my brothers and sisters.  Love you all for the sake of Allah.

Mesmerizing

   I find it absolutely mesmerizing when brothers and sisters unite together and pray together..seriously not only for Jummah but anywhere. I love that comfort that no matter what our race, or social status is that we pray to the Almighty.  It’s just a reminder that we are here for a bigger purpose and we support each other in the end.  We are one and will continue to unite around the world.  Another great feeling is when you read a Surah from the Quran and you think about there has to be someone else somewhere else that is reading the same Surah or even same verse.  Peace and blessings to all the brothers and sisters around the world. I seriously love all of you for the sake of Allah Subantala.

        Just wanted to send out peace and blessings among The Beauty of Islam Tumblr family. May Allah Subantala bless everyone and forgive all of us for our sins. May Allah Subantala gave the highest rankings in Jannah for our parents and loved ones. Life can get hard but keep faith alive :). Follow Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).  Keep with content and remember Allah Subantala is always with us. Turn to the creator.

Announcements

    Assalalikum brothers and sisters,

                        I’m happy to announce two different news items! First, I wrote a blog about Emaan, a 5 year old girl who was diagnosed with cancer. I’m glad to announce that Allah Subantala relieved her from her cancer and she passed all the tests today! May Allah Subantala bless everyone for their prayers and blessings. Secondly, my grandpa passed his citizenship interview! I couldn’t be happier that he’s an American citizen. Even Barack Obama had a video to congratulate the interviewees! (it was a video lol). Anyways, I wanted to send out my prayers to families who lost loved ones on the Malaysian flight. I know they are in a better place. It just shows that death is very close to all of us. Let’s keep doing good deeds before we are returned to the Almighty.  Peace and blessings to the Islam community on Tumblr. Keep striving to be successful in this life and the hereafter. Salam!

That Feeling.

    Assalamalikum brothers and sisters,

                I just wanted to share such an amazing feeling I had yesterday morning.  I was waking up when I heard my grandpa upstairs reciting the Quran.  I literally was about to get out of my bed when I just wanted to sit there and listen to him recite.  My heart felt at peace. If anyone else has that experience please share! I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Peace and blessings to you and your families.  Have a wonderful day.
