Give Thanks To Allah

Sami Yusuf EID SONG (With Lyrics)

Eid Mubarak!

Farewell Ramadan

Farewell Ramadan


In couple of days now we will be saying" Farewell Ramadan and see u next year by God's will"...

Now after all the fasting, prayer, and all our trials to be complete Muslims, after all that and as the end of Ramadan draws near a big question is popped up "What is after Ramadan?" will everything be back to "Normal" and actually what is "Normal" to us? does it mean that we will be far away from God as we were before Ramadan? doing all the stuffs that we are forbidden to do, skipping prayer, and not

considering what God has Ordered us to do?,all that just because Ramadan is over and we have increased our good deeds so now we can even the scale by doing all what we want of the forbidden deeds till next Ramadan and then we will start over again...is that really how we really want to live?

Some may say that we don't mean to forget about our religion after Ramadan it is just that we tend to forget because we no more feel connected to God like we used to feel in Ramadan, Why is that? it is just because every month that is not Ramadan is simply not Ramadan, it is just an ordinary month in which we r not obliged to perform any deed that may remind us of God so we tend to forget or pretend to have forgotten.

Well I must not forget that in Ramadan all the Devils r manacled so in Ramadan all that we have to fight against is our-selves and desires while in other than Ramadan we've got two sides to fight against, so in other than Ramadan a lot of people would say "I was tempted by the devil" and goes with that all the time and saying "the Devil is strong" and such crap, well let me tell u something the Devil is not that strong at all as many may imagine but ur ultimate war is with ur own self and desire, the person's self and desire is what we really fighting against. The devil may just put a bad idea in ur mind as a choice and u will be the person who is deciding to take that choice and believe me, by following what ur desires tell u, it will be ur downfall.


Now after knowing that should make us wonder if we r able to restrain our-selves and desires for a whole month why r we unable to restrain them in the rest of the year? it is simply because we believe that we r unable to do so, we believe that we r weak and that we can't stand against our own desires, and that is due to the weakness in our believes and minds and because of what we think that we can do and what we can't and if we r unable to free ourselves from that cage of mind we'll never be in peace...


In the end, Ramadan Kareem on u all and Insha Allah it will come next year bringing all the blessing and grace of God upon u all..

Return of ISA (JESUS) & Dajjal (Anti-Christ) & (Ya'juj Ma'juj)

Return of ISA (JESUS) & Dajjal (Anti-Christ) & (Ya'juj Ma'juj)

What is my duty?




Mankind! Worship your Lord, Who created you and those before you, so that hopefully you may do your duty. The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 2,Verse 21
That is Allah, your Lord. There is no god but Him, the Creator of everything. So worship Him. He is responsible for everything. The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 6,Verse 102
'My people, worship Allah! You have no other god than Him. I fear for you the punishment of a dreadful Day.' The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 7,Verse 59
The Unseen of the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah and the whole affair will be returned to Him. So worship Him and put your trust in Him. The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 11,Verse 123
Mankind! Heed your Lord and fear a day when no father will be able to atone for his son, or son for his father, in any way. Allah's promise is true. So do not let the life of this world delude you and do not let the Deluder delude you concerning Allah. The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 31,Verse 33
… So heed Allah. And know that you will be gathered back to Him.The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 2,Verse 203
Allah augments those who are guided by giving them greater guidance. In your Lord's sight, right actions which are lasting are better both in reward and end result. The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 19,Verse 76
Will they not ponder the Qur'an? If it had been from other than Allah, they would have found many inconsistencies in it. The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 4,Verse 82
"We have sent down the Book to you with truth. So worship Allah, making your religion sincerely His. Indeed the sincere religion belongs to Allah alone..." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 39,Verse 2-3


Seeing God


The practise of representing God in human form is, and has been, quite widespread. When man lost touch with divine revelation which taught that God was not similar to His creation, he began to direct his worship to creation. In doing so, he often chose to represent God in human form, as man was obviously the greatest living being on earth. In the Qur'an, Allah makes it very clear that nothing we can think of is like Him. Allah states, There is nothing like Him (Allah) but He sees and hears all.The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 42, Verse 11 and There is none comparable to Him. The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 112, Verse 4


After making it clear that He is not like His creation, Allah goes on to inform us that our eyes cannot grasp Him. He said ,

Eyes cannot catch Him but He catches all eyes The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 6, Verse 103
This divine statement points out that man is incapable of viewing the Divine Being.
Seeing God
There is none comparable to Him. The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 112, Verse 4
In order to emphasize this fact, Allah related in the Qur'an a pertinent incident from the life of Prophet Moosa (Moses);

And when Moses came to our appointed meeting place and his Lord spoke to him, he said: 'My Lord!Show me Yourself so that I may gaze upon You.' He replied: 'You will never see Me, but look at the mountain. If it remains in its place you will be able to see Me.' When his Lord revealed His glory to the mountain, it was crushed into dust, and Moses fell down unconscious. When he regained his consciousness he said: 'Glory be unto You!I turn to You repentant and I am the first of the true believers.' The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 7, Verse 143
Prophet Moosa (Moses) thought that he might be allowed to see God since Allah had preferred him over the rest of mankind of that time by choosing him to receive His message. But, Allah made it very clear to him that it was not possible for him or anyone else. No man could bear the intensity of even seeing Allah's glory much less Allah's boundless being. When the mountain disintegrated, Prophet Moosa realized his error and begged Allah's forgiveness for requesting something which was not permitted.
If God could be seen in this life, the tests of this life would be pointless. What makes this life a real test is the fact that we are obliged to believe in Allah without exactly seeing Him. If Allah were visible, everyone would believe in Him and all that the prophets taught. In fact, man would end up like angels, in total obedience to Allah. Because Allah made man to be higher than the angels, whose belief in Allah was without choice, man's choice of belief over disbelief had to be in a situation where Allah's existence could be questioned. Thus, Allah has kept himself hidden from mankind and will continue to do so until the Last day.

Allah's Messenger http://muttaqun.com/graphics/saaws-long.gifsaid, "Ramadan, a blessed month, has come to you during which Allah has made it obligatory for you to fast. In it the gates of Heaven are opened, the gates of al-Jahim are locked, and the rebellious devils are chained. In it Allah has a night which is better than a thousand months. He who is deprived of its good has indeed suffered deprivation."
Hadith - Al-Tirmidhi #2092, Narrated AbuBakrah  [Tirmidhi transmitted it.]
AbuBakrah heard Allah's Messenger http://muttaqun.com/graphics/saaws-long.gifsay, "Seek it (meaning Laylat al-Qadr), on the twenty-first, twenty-third, twenty-fifth, twenty-seventh, or on the last night."

Allah's Messenger http://muttaqun.com/graphics/saaws-long.gifsaid that when Laylat al-Qadr comes, Gabriel descends with a company of angels who invoke blessings on ever who is standing or sitting and remembering Allah, who is Great and Glorious. Then when their festival day comes, i.e. the day when they break their fast, Allah speaks proudly of them to His angels saying, "My angels, what is the reward of a hired servant who has fully accomplished his work?" They reply, "Our Lord, his reward is that he should be paid his wage in full." He says, "My angels, My male and female servants have fulfilled what I have made obligatory for them, and then have come out raising their voices in supplication. By My might, glory, honour, high dignity and exalted station, I shall certainly answer them." Then He says, "Return, for I have forgiven you and changed your evil deeds into good deeds." He said that they then returned having received forgiveness.
Hadith - Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 3, Book 31, #125, Narrated Abu Huraira
The Prophet http://muttaqun.com/graphics/saaws-long.gifsaid, "Whoever established prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven; and whoever fasts in the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven."

A Little Qari of the World - smallest Qari

Sümeyye Eddeb - Ahmed Mustafa Kamil Viyana 27.10.2007

Somaya Abdul Aziz Eddeb- Surat Al Fajr

Excellent Recitation Of Surah Takweer - Qari Basit

Ayatul Kursi Full - Beautiful Recitation

Al Asma Ul Husna 99 Names Of Allah God

laylat-ul-qadr

LAYLATUL QADR - NIGHT OF POWER


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power: And what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by God's permission, on every errand: Peace!...This until the rise of morn!
(Surah 97 The Holy Quran)
The Holy Quran contains a short surah dedicated to Laylatul Qadr. Surah Al-Qadr is the 97th surah and consists of five verses. However, these short verses carry great meaning and guidance. They tell us all we need to know about the essence and spirit of Laylatul Qadr.
Laylatul Qadr falls sometime within the last 10 days of Ramadhan.

"Seek it in Ramadhan in the last ten nights. For verily, it is during the odd nights, the twenty-first, or the twenty-third, or the twenty-fifth, or the twenty-seventh, or the twenty-ninth, or during the last night." Sahih Hadith Ahmad 5:318
Laylatul Qadr is the most blessed night. A person who misses it has indeed missed a great amount of good. If an individual wants to obey his Lord, increase the good deeds in his record and have all past sins forgiven, they should take part in Laylatul Qadr.
“Whoever stays up (in prayer and remembrance of Allah) on the Night of Qadr fully believing (in Allah’s promise of reward for that night) and hoping to seek reward (from Allah alone and not from people), he shall be forgiven for his past sins.” Sahih Hadith Bukhari / Muslim

We should strive to find this night, and then pass it in worship and obedience. If this is done for the sake of Allah swt, with sincerity, then all past sins will be forgiven. However, if a person misses out on worship during Laylatul Qadr they truly are a deprived person.
This night is full of reward and blessing and is equivalent to a thousand nights of worship. Anyone who takes part in Laylatul Qadr will have worshipped an equivalent of eighty three years and three months. It is as if a person has spent an entire lifetime in non-stop worship.
“The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.” 97:3 The Holy Quran
"Allah's Messenger saw, looked back at the previous communities and saw that his community lived for a much shorter period in comparison to them. He was concerned about how his community would be able to gain as many rewards as those of the previous communities. So when Allah the Exalted saw the concerns in the heart of His Beloved saw, was given Laylatul-Qadr, which is more virtuous than a thousand months." (Imâm Mâlik, Muatta)

Worship during this night can take on many forms. Here are a few suggestions to help you through Laylatul Qadr:

• Plan ahead if you are working. If you are going to spend a night awake in worship, book the following day off.

• Take regular breaks during the night to avoid getting over-exhausted. Try switching between different forms of worship instead.

• Perform Itikaaf (seclusion in a mosque for worship) – If possible, take a vacation for the last 10 days of Ramadhan. If you cannot stay at your local mosque ask family or friends to help out during your Itikaaf at home. If you cannot spend all 10 days in Itikaaf, then do as many days as you can - even if it is only one day.

• Increase the recitation of the Qur'an, and reflect on the meaning of the verses, especially the verses used in Salah. This will help you concentrate.

• Increase Salah (prayer).
• Find out if there are any events organised, and take your family along.
Doing all of the above activities may be too much to do throughout the night but is far better than social gatherings and meaningless talk that we stay awake for.
If your Arabic is not very strong then there are many good English translations of Quran and Hadith, which can be used instead. Other useful reading might include books of tafsir (Quran commentary), books on the lives of the Prophets, and books of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) as well as Du’a books.
The days of Laylatul-Qadr are an important time for worship, especially the last 10 days. We should pray sincerely from our hearts in order to be saved from the hellfire. This is a good opportunity not only to pray for ourselves but also for our fellow brothers and sisters, for if we can not do anything else then our prayers will help.
Ibn Abbas (ra) heard the Prophet (saw) advising someone, saying, “Take advantage of five before five: You’re youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your wealth before your poverty, your free time before you become occupied, and your life before your death.”
May Allah swt help us to purify our hearts, strengthen our faith, and enable us to meet every challenge, and overcome every difficulty in our lives. May Allah swt allow us to serve Him with sincerity in our work, study, professional, business, family and social lives. When the time comes for us finally to return to Him, may Allah swt admit us to the companionship of those whom He loves.

laylat-ul-qadr

Imagine this. What if your boss told you that if you worked on one specific day, the company would give you 81 years worth of pay? What if you could earn the same amount of money for 81 years of work with just one night of labor? Would you agree to this bargain?

Allah, praised and glorified, has promised His believers an even better deal. Muslims can attain the same amount of blessings and rewards in one night of worship, as they would if they worshipped 1000 regular months. That’s over 81 years. That’s the blessing of Lailatul Qadar.
Lailatul Qadar, translated as the Night of Power, is the greatest night of the year. During this period, Muslims should spend their nights in worship and seek forgiveness, reward, and blessings of Allah.
