Road to Ramadan.......Join the Qafila

As Ramadan is approaching we should better prepare for it like we do for other worldly things. Alhumdulillah I got the opportunity to tread this path to Ramadan under the guidance of eminent teachers. I thought why not let other people to get the same benefit. The journey that is taken under the guidance of a guide is very much easier and pleasant than treading alone. So lets join the Qafila and be a part of this spiritual journey inshaAllah.

Before It's Too Late........

“Your ‪‎time‬ should not be without any structure, such that you occupy yourself arbitrarily with whatever comes along. Rather, you must take account of yourself and order your worship during the day and the night, assigning to each period of time an activity that must not be neglected nor replaced by another activity. By this ordering of time, the blessing in time will show itself. A person who leaves himself without a plan as animals do, not knowing what he is to do an any given moment, will spend most of his time fruitlessly. Your time is your ‪life, and your life is your capital: by it you make your trade, and by it you will reach the eternal bounties in the proximity of Allah. Every single breath of yours is a priceless jewel, because it is irreplaceable; once it is gone, there is no return for it. So do not be like fools who rejoice each day as their wealth increases while their lives decrease. What good is there in wealth that increases while one’s lifespan decreases? Do not rejoice except in an increase of knowledge or an increase of good‪ works. Truly they are your two friends who will accompany you in your‪ grave‬, when your spouse, your wealth, your children, and your friends will remain behind.”

ImamAl Ghazali‬ (Ramatullah Alaihy)

O' Queen of Islam !!

You may not be a fairy tale princess, but you are always a princess of Islam.
The sun doesn't lose its beauty when its covered by the clouds, the same way your beauty
doesn't fade when you are wearing a hijab.

The nobel prize winner Tawakkul Kamran from Yemen, when asked about her hijab by
journalists and how it is not proportionate with her intellect and education, she replied:

"Man in the early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing
clothes. What I am today and what I am wearing represents the highest level of thought
and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It's the removal of clothes
again that is regressive back to ancient times."

what Inheritance You Leave Behind !!

It happened last day when my little niece of around  6 years  was sitting having salt cellar in her hand and tasting salt, I asked her why she licking salt? She replied in such a sweet manner that made me laugh. She said isn't you taste salt? I laughed because she saw me tasting salt before having meal and after meal. I do this because it is a recommended act, practice and advice of pious predecessor.

Later I realized that what impact we can leave on these little innocent clean mind. They are a blank slate you can write whatever you want to write on these young minds and hearts. Our kids are not what we want them to be but what we are so to make them follow us we must make sure what we are following.

La Taqnatu

My Beloved Hazratwala Rahmatullah Alaihy says that some people show tawazo (humility) in saying that "Oh Im so sinful how Allah Ta'ala would forgive me". Actually this person is not a humble one but full of pride. Hazrat Maulaha Ashraf Ali Thanwi Rahmatullah Alaihy says such beliefs are batil/false because that person thinks his sins to be greater than the mercy of Allah Ta'ala. Hazratwala Rahmatullah Alaihy says such sentences are of very deceptive nature.

Power is for Allah.....

Often we have this idea that whatever good we do is just because of our own efforts but Allah Ta'ala says  " La Hawla Wala Quwwata Illa Billah" there is neither might nor ability except with Allah. Everygood we do is solely because of Allah Ta'ala ,as human we are so concerned for ourselves let alone think of others. It is only with will and wish of Allah we can do good deeds.

I intend to write this because I remembered an incident that happened with me. My sister and I was returning from market,on the way we saw some clay pots etc. My gaze fell on a small pots that I thought will keep it as vase near my room. We hurried to the pot maker and asked for that pot but he replied that is not to keep as a vase but for the water to feed the birds. Instantly my intention changed and I bought it to keep it on the rooF of my house for birds to quench their thirst. Later I realized that Alhumdulillah Allah Ta'ala took such a noble work from me else I was so selfish for just for my own desires. That day I literally realized and experienced that the power to do good is purely from Allah Ta'ala. I hope this small article with break the pride within and to make us more humble to Allah Ta'ala Ameen!
