islamic-quote-on-trials

Assalaamualaikum wr wb,

The hadith above is trying to teach us that when we are afflicted with hardships, Allah (swt) is only testing us so that we may benefit. When people suffer, in the end they always come out stronger and wiser. Allah (swt) tested all the prophets with so many hardships yet they still had faith and patience to endure through these hardships. For example, Prophet Yunus (as) was stuck in the belly of a whale, Prophet Yusuf (as) was afflicted with jealousy from his brothers, Prophet Ayyub (as) with sickness, and even our dearest Prophet Muhammad had so many trials throughout his life. But still their faith was strongest at these times and they didn’t stop praying to Allah (swt). They didn’t stop asking for forgiveness and appreciating what they had. Surely Allah (swt) only tested them because He loves them. We should follow the prophets’ examples and endure through hardships with patience and our faith should never waver. In fact, our faith should be strongest at these times. It will be difficult at these times, but think how pleased Allah (swt) will be with you when you endure with patience and strong faith. Not only that, but remember that after hardship, comes ease. Also, Allah (swt) does not give us trials that we can not bear. And always smileeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!! 😀

Assalaamualaikum wr wb,

Imagine someone came up to you and gave you 10,000 dollars or more. Obviously you’ll be grateful to this person and you would want to repay that person, right? What if that person said all you have to do is remember me? This would make you even happier because it’s just so easy to remember such an awesome person that just gave you some big bucks.

Well Allah (swt) gave us more than that. Just our body parts alone cost an incredible amount and yet we take them for granted. Not just that, but we have so many blessings that it’s innumerable! And if you were to count Allah’s favors, you would not be able to number them; most surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. [Sūrah al-Nahl: 18] Subhanallah!!! But Allah (swt) only asked for us to remember Him by praying, fasting, doing dhikr, etc. “So make remembrance of Me, and I will make remembrance of you.  And show thanks to Me, and do not be ungrateful.” [Qur’an 2:152] Can you believe that? That’s all we have to do. How can we be ungrateful to Allah?! Yet we still refrain from constantly remembering him… But Allah (swt) also gave us restrictions. He told us what was haram and what was halal. Those that are haram actually harm us so we should follow these rules as well. This is also for our own benefit. At the end of the day, remembering Allah, praying, etc. ends up being good deeds that will help us on the Day of Judgment. Now this is also for our benefit!!

Anyways the point I’m trying to make is we should seriously be more grateful towards our Lord, the Most Beneficient, the Most Merciful. It’s so easy and it’s good for us too. It’s a win-win deal. Why not try it?

Assalamualaikum wr wb,

Well I’m going to copy and paste the Final Sermon of Prophet Muhammad (saw). The link is: http://www.iqrasense.com/about-islam/the-last-sermon-khutbah-of-prophet-muhammad-farewell-sermon.html They really explain it well. It’s so cool to know that even after so many years, we are still reading his sermon. Mashallah! 😀 Before when I was younger I thought it was pretty cool but now that I understand it more, I’m like Oh my Allah, this is soooo amazingg!!! Anyways here is the link, they first talk about the sermon and then actually say it:

 

Shortly before his death, Prophet Muhammad delivered a sermon during theHajj, which came to be known as his “Final Sermon”.  This final sermon was not only a reminder to his followers, but also an important admonition.  The final sermon confirms the end of his Prophetic Mission.

 

Year 10 A.H.  of the Islamic Calendar is considered to be one of the most significant years for three reasons.  Firstly, this was the year when the Prophet delivered his Last Sermon during his farewell pilgrimage to Mecca.  Secondly, this was the year where number of deputations came to the Prophet to announce their Islam as well as their tribes.  Thirdly, it was the golden period of Islam when multitudes of people embraced the faith by accepting the message of the Prophet.

 

Prophet Muhammad undertook his farewell pilgrimage in the year 10 A.H.  His farewell pilgrimage to Mecca is one of the most significant historical events in the minds of Muslims, for it was the first and last pilgrimage made by Prophet Muhammad, as well as being the model for performing the fifth pillar of Islam, theHajj.

 

Prophet Muhammad’s final sermon was delivered during the Hajj of the year 632 C.E., the ninth day of Dhul Hijjah, the 12th month of the lunar year, at Arafat, the most blessed day of the year.  There were countless Muslims present with the Prophet during his last pilgrimage when he delivered his last Sermon.

 

The Final Sermon:

 

After praising, and thanking God, the Prophet, may God send His praises upon him said:

 

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.  Therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.

 

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.  Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners.  Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you.  Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds.  God has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived.  Your capital, however, is yours to keep.  You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity.  God has Judged that there shall be no interest, and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn Abd’al Muttalib shall henceforth be waived…

 

Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion.  He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

 

O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you.  Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under a trust from God and with His permission.  If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness.  Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.  And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.

 

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship God, perform your five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadan, and offer Zakat.  Perform Hajj if you have the means.

 

All mankind is from Adam and Eve.  An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab; white has no superiority over black, nor does a black have any superiority over white; [none have superiority over another] except by piety and good action.  Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood.  Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly.  Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.

 

Remember, one day you will appear before God and answer for your deeds.  So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

 

O People, no prophet or apostle will come after me, and no new faith will be born.  Reason well, therefore, O people, and understand words which I convey to you.  I leave behind me two things, the Quran and my example, the Sunnah, and if you follow these you will never go astray.

 

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and it may be that the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly.  Be my witness, O God, that I have conveyed your message to your people.”

 

Thus the beloved Prophet completed his Final Sermon, and upon it, near the summit of Arafat, the revelation came down:

 

“…This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My Grace upon you, and have chosen Islam for you as your religion…” (Quran 5:3)

 

Even today the Last Sermon of Prophet Muhammad is passed to every Muslim in every corner of the word through all possible means of communication.  Muslims are reminded about it in mosques and in lectures.  Indeed the meanings found in this sermon are indeed astounding, touching upon some of the most important rights God has over humanity, and humanity has over each other.  Though the Prophet’s soul has left this world, his words are still living in our hearts.

Assalaamualaikum wr wb,

Hey everyone! I’d like to tell all the Muslims here that April Fools is haram, meaning not allowed/prohibited in Islam. Why? Well I’d be a good blogger if I explained it all but I’m pretty sure you can find out yourselves. Sorry I’m busy… But I’ll give you a few general reasons why it’s haram:

Wahid: The origins of April Fools. The Non-Muslims fooled the Muslims bad, I mean real bad. In a very unjust way.

Ithnan: Muhammad (saw) said that you shouldn’t lie and you shouldn’t fool or trick each other either because that’s also bad. You get it?

Thalatha: You would be imitating the Non-Muslims and on the Day of Judgment, you will be among the ones you imitate. (I forget which ayah that is, sorry again! I know I’m horrible.)

I’m pretty sure that’s all the reasons to it but you can learn and find out more on this magic thing called a computer…

Sorry if I offended anyone, seriously didn’t mean to. I know sometimes there are things that a lot of grown ups take offensively when we kids don’t even understand why they would take it offensively. But I’m just saying I’m only a child, so don’t go hating.

Here’s a site that did a good job on explaining. Check out the post: http://islamgreatreligion.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/who-is-fooling-who-april-fool-day/

So hope you benefit from all this.

Jazakallahu khayran! 😀

Assalaamualaikum wr wb,

The part that is in bold is the post. The rest is just my nonstop blabber. 

First of all, as you can see, I’ve lost the word sisters because for some odd reason, even though this website was specified as girls only, some males decide to join… I don’t really care but I find it annoying that no one listened to that fact. Well whatever Islam is for everybody, not just females…

Anyways back to the post! Yay, I’m finally doing a post after so long! Aren’t you guys just so darn excited?! No, not that much huh? Now that’s not a good thing, you should be jumping up and down. Oh gosh, sometimes I feel like I’m a bit on the koo koo side. Like right now,  I’m having an imaginary conversation with myself… Do you other bloggers ever feel that way while writing a post?

Oh yeah I sidetracked, now, for real, back to the post! 😀

“In order that you may not be sad over matters that you fail to get, nor rejoice because of that which has been given to you…” (Qur’an 57:23).  

This is teaching us that don’t get upset over your failures because they’re short-lived. Do you think in 1o years that failure is going to matter? Or more importantly, do you think that failure is going to matter when you’re dead? Or even more importantly, do you think that failure is going to matter on the Day of Judgment?! I don’t think so. Well unless you were a failure at doing good deeds, then it is going to matter. But I mean like in worldly matters, it’s NOT going to matter. Like for instance, is it going to matter to you on the Day of Judgment that you completely failed to get into a very awesome school or you completely failed to get this wonderful job? No, I don’t think so. So don’t get upset because it won’t matter on the Day of Judgment. (And yes I am spelling judgment right, I’m no idiot, that’s how you spell it!) 

This is also teaching us to get too happy when we have a victory because it’s also short-lived. Again this is true and explained in the paragraph above and I don’t feel like repeating it. 

So my dear readers, take this advice  as something to  ( I was going to say something smart or wise but it didn’t come to me… 😥 )

 

Anyways jazakallahu khayran! 😀

Assalaamualaikum wr wb sisters,

I think we’ve all noticed that bullying is a huge issue. I mean seriously, it’s caused hundreds of deaths. Now that’s what I call scary and going too far. And you know what’s worse? People, mainly kids,  still bully each other. That’s a bit silly and ridiculous.

This is how the bullying game starts. A kid is having a bad time or has a harsh life or something so guess what? To have “fun”, the kid decides to make some another kid have a bad time. This makes the other kid either do suicide or bully someone else or rarely, get help. Look if there’s anyone out there that’s a bully, you’re a coward and you’re sick. We all have to go through some hardships but that doesn’t mean we go and attack someone else to make their lives miserable as well. The world is already scary as it is, don’t add to it. If you’re having a hard time, go to someone, there’s always someone who can help! Or if you don’t go for help, just deal with it and try to make it better.

Now, as for the victim, do NOT do suicide. That’s the most ridiculous I’ve ever heard of. You’d rather have death than someone to bully you?! Death where your soul is taken away and you’re in a cold and dirty grave. A grave filled with bugs and other nasty things. All alone… You’d rather have that?! If someone cam up to me and said you have 2 choices: either you die or you let someone torment you, I’ll choose the latter. ‘Coz dying doesn’t help, it makes it worse. Actually, I think it’s a bit selfish too. Taking your own life just to get rid of your problems. What about all your loved ones? Don’t say “My life is miserable and I don’t have anyone.”, ‘coz that’s not true. You might think that, but no. There has to be at least one person who loves you and will cry for you if you die.

So don’t kill yourself ‘coz I’m telling you right now, it’s not gonna be fun. Maybe you might say that I don’t know how it feels to be a bully or the victim. But well I think I do, I got bullied once back in kindergarten. This kid used to always take my stuff but he was mentally retarded so yeah… So then one day I got mad and hit him where it hurts lol, he never took my stuff again. But anyways I was only 5 and I knew there was another solution to it than doing suicide.

If someone bullies you, I guess you should… talk back in a confident manner? Or maybe just ignore it all together. Or maybe, if you want the world a happy place, get to know that bully and maybe you can solve whatever is bothering him/her.

Anyways my last point is bullying is wrong. Don’t be the bully or the bystander and don’t do suicide.

Ooh and one more thing,very important: Keep calm and have patience ‘coz there’s always God there to help you. You’re never alone, you might have nobody but you do have God. 🙂 Don’t worry after every hardship, there is ease. One day the light you’ve been waiting for will come. 

Jazakallahu khayran. 🙂
