I AM ALWAYS ON DUTY

September 26, 2014

When an European airline was initially launched, an educated Muslim gentleman was traveling in the first class section. An air hostess approached him with a complimentary alcoholic drink, so that man politely refused. The air hostess returned but this time bought the drink on a platter, designed to appeal and impress however Muslim man again politely refused, explaining he doesn’t drink alcohol. The air hostess was concerned and informed the manager. The manager approached the man with another platter, now designed with flowers, and questioned, “Is there something wrong with our service? Please enjoy the drink, it is a complimentary offer.” The man replied, “I am a Muslim and I do not drink alcohol.” The manager still insisted that the man take the drink.

Then, the Muslim proposed that the manager should give the drink to the pilot first. The manager stated, “How can the pilot drink alcohol, he’s on duty!? And if he drinks there are all chances for the plane to crash”.
The passenger with tears in his eye, replied, “I am a Muslim and I am always on duty in order to protect my Imaan (Faith) and if I drink I will crash my whole life here and in the hereafter.

Blessings in the Month of Shaaban

June 15, 2013

The Month of Rajab

Rajab, being the seventh month of the Islamic calendar is a stepping stone to the auspicious months of Sha’baan and Ramadhaan. Rajab is from the Ashurul Hurum (Sacred months), where the rewards of virtuous deeds are increased. When the moon of Rajab was sighted RasulullahSallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam would recite the following Dua:

اَللّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِيْ رَجَبٍ وَشَعْبَانَ وَبَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَان

“Allahumma baarik lana fee rajabin wa Sha’baana wa ballighnaa Ramadaan”

Oh Allah! grant us blessings in the month of Rajab and Shabaan, and make us reach the month of Ramadhaan” (Shu’abul-Imaan & Ibnus Sunni)

This Dua should be recited regularly in the month of Rajab and Sha’baan. In preparation for Ramadhan, the relevance of

 

Rajab maybe understood as the month to sow seeds (good actions),

Sha’ban is the month in which we should water those seeds (with tears of remorse) and

Ramadhan is the month in which we reap the harvest

May Allah Ta’ala privilege us with witnessing Ramadhaan and grant us the ability to spend it in a manner that is most pleasing to Him, Aameen.

The lecture is really good and Yasir really brings up some good and important points.


The Storm is Comming, Part 1

May 27, 2013

Yasmin Mogahed offers an AMAZING lecture about this life and how deceived we are living a rat race. When we really love someone we honor them with special care and attention, but do we offer God our love and honor? Are we fulfilling those things that God has requested of us? Are we following our own whims or making an effort to live a pure life and worship God without it feeling like a burden? Do we see the storm coming?
