Allah is always kind

Know that Allah is always kind and whatever test He gives you is because one He knows you are capable of handling it and two is the fact you get much more closer to Him. It’s a blessing upon a blessing because we tend to forget that with every test, He raises us in ranks.

Never underestimate the power of dua

Never underestimate the power of dua

Narrated by Jaabir ibn ‘Abdillah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:

The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“The day of Friday has twelve hours, in which there is no Muslim slave who asks Allah for anything but He will grant it to him, so seek it in the last hour after ‘Asr.”

Reported by Abu Dawood (1048).

Sin and repentance

A sin followed by repentance is better than righteousness followed by amazement at one’s own actions:

📗 Allaah says:

قَوْلٌ مَّعْرُوفٌ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ خَيْرٌ مِّن صَدَقَةٍ يَتْبَعُهَا أَذًى

❝{Kind words and forgiving of faults are better than Sadaqah (charity) followed by injury.}❞

📚 [Surah al-Baqarah (2): 263]

📕 And the Prophet [sal-Allaahu `alaihi wa sallam] said:

❝If you were not to commit sins, I would have feared for you something which is worse than that: ‘self-amazement!’❞

📚 [Musnad al-Bazzaar (6936) and graded as “Hasan li ghairihee” (authentic due to corroborating chains) by Shaikh al-Albaanee in al-Saheehah (658)]

USING MAKEUP ON EYEBROWS
Question:

Some sisters don’t remove the hair from their eyebrows but they will use makeup to make them look “perfect”, meaning they will use makeup to make them look fuller or sometimes even mess with the shape of the eyebrow. Is this allowed?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Sheikh Saleh Al Fawzan has a fatwa regarding eyebrows he said, you should not do any changes to them. This is from changing Allah’s creation. Just leave them as they are except if there is a serious defect in them then in this case you can try to fix this defect (تشوية).

Sweeter Than The Bitterness…

” You must be patient.

Even if the pains of waiting, wishing and praying tire you, be patient.

Even when long periods of time pass by and others are blessed with what they have been praying for whilst you still await, be patient.

For Allah does not waste the efforts of the doers of good.

He delays his response only to hear you call to him more.

Be patient.

For what awaits you is sweeter than the bitterness of longing. ~ Author unknown.

Seek him beautifully

Its amazing how much reverence we give to people. Their opinions. Their observance. Their criticism. Their praise. But why? Why do our hearts almost combust within our chests when we stand before a crowd? Why do we shape our entire lives around the expectations of a people who aren’t even sure what to expect for themselves? Why do we place our hearts in the hands of a creation that aren’t in control of their own? Why do we care so much about the opinion of people who even struggle to have a good opinion of Allaah, The One far from imperfections?

My love, it is human nature to alter oneself when being observed. But if you completely alter yourself to please everyone you will never be pleased. Nor will they ever be pleased with you. So make Allaah your Audience. And if you are to perform. Only perform for Him. And If your heart is to combust within you out of fear of the Observance of anyone, let it be out of fear of Him. The One whose frown and disappointment can make your flesh detach from its bones. And if your heart is to be pleased with the pleasure of anyone. Let it be for the Pleasure and Happiness of Him. The One whose Laugh and Pleasure is more valuable than the Paradise and everything it contains. He is Allaah. The One who sees you when no one else can. Knows about you what no one else knows. Your only Source of Happiness, Provision and Protection. Everything you seek from people is in His hand. They can never give to you except by His permission. The hearts you are turning towards are in the Hand of the One you are turning away from. So Turn back to Him. Make Him your most valued Observer. Your Most called upon Companion. Your Most frequent Thought. Your most mentioned Name. In this world filled with performers. Outshine them all. Perform for the Most Noble Audience. Perform for Allaah.

The Prophet

ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him)
said: “No soul shall perish until it completes its lifespan and its provision, so fear Allah, and seek it beautifully. And do not let the delay of that provision cause you to seek it through disobeying Allah. For what is with Allah cannot be acquired except through obedience to Him.”

Dua

Almighty. On this blessed day, give us the strength and courage to stay firm and hold on to our belief. Don’t make us among those who lose ourselves in a crowd just because we want to fit in. Make us worry less about what people think of us. Only You matter in the end!

Everything happens for a reason,

Everything happens for a reason, behind the reason there is a lesson, a lesson that will make you stronger and wiser!

The wisdom you gained will help other people that are struggling with the same hardships that you went through. When Allah (ﷻ) wants good for you he tests you with hardships.

Each steps in life you take will only make you stronger.

Without pain there is no strength, for surely He Allah (ﷻ) knows what is Good for us.

Calling to Allah yields many great rewards:

Calling to Allah yields many great rewards:

Sahl Ibn Sad (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: “The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said on the day of the Battle of Khaybar to Ali Ibn Abi Talib (May Allah be pleased with him):

“Advance cautiously until you reach their open places; thereafter, invite them to Islam and inform them of what is obligatory for them from the rights of Allah because by Allah, if Allah guides even one person through you that is better for you than possessing a herd of red camels.”

[Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

This was a reference to the finest and most valuable type of camel, which reflects the virtue of calling people to Allah and guiding them to the right path.
