And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.

Marriage is not a playground

Marriage is not a playground where the ego thoughtlessly pursues its vanities. It is an institution that helps a man and a woman pursue the purpose of their creation: to glorify and worship God and to work, within the extent of our capabilities and resources, to make the world a better place for those we share it with and for those we will leave it to.

—Imām Zaid Shākir

“There is no God but You; Glory be to You, Truly I have been one of the wrongdoers” [Surah al-Anbiyah, 21: 87]Image

‘Uthman ibn Affan Radia-Allahu ‘Anhu said: 

“Three worldly things have been made dear to me: feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and reading the Qur’an.”

Ummati Ummati !!! Do you know 1400 years ago Somebody Loved You.

You were not even there. You were not even born then,

but Somebody Cried for you many Nights asking Allah Almighty for YOUR Forgiveness,

He was Miserable for YOU, wanted to Save YOU from anything Bad.
He wanted nothing less than JANNAH for YOU.
He had Wives, Children, Friends & Family who adored Him,
but it was YOUR name He kept Repeating on his last Breath. Ya Ummati Ya Ummati. What have we done in reply to our NABI (Sallal la hu alihi wasallam’s ) Love? NOTHING!!

But from Today onwards we will try In sha ALLAH to follow His Sunnah won’t we?Image

ImageSa’d Bin Abi Waqqas (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said:

“There are four sources of happiness and four sources of misery. Among the
sources of happiness are:

1. A good wife who pleases you when you look at her; and when you are
away from her, you trust her in regard to herself and your property.
2. An easy ride that enables you to catch up with your companions.
3. A house that is spacious and of many facilities.
4. A good neighbor.

And among the sources of misery are:
1. An evil wife who dismays you when you look at her, who uses her
tongue against you, and who, when you are away from her, you would
not trust her in regard to herself or your property.
2. A stubborn ride that if you whip it would tire you, and if you leave it
alone you would not be able to catch up with your companions.
3. A tight house of limited facilities.
4. An evil neighbor.”
