One day

One day you will realise that material things mean absolutely nothing. All that matters is the well being of the people in your life & the good that you shall leave behind.

Marriage

30 Mar

Asalaam alaykum,

Halal intimacy.

I want you to still have these 7 pieces of advice.

1. For newlyweds: Some of the sahabah recommended you pray 2 rak’ahs with your new spouse to mark your first moment together . There is of course the prophetic Dua: “O Allah I ask you of his/her good and the good of what you created in him/her. I seek refuge in You from his/her evil and the evil of what was created in him/her.”

2. Before starting the act of intimacy, make this prophetic Dua,“Bismillaah, Allahumma jannibnaa ash-shaytana, wa jannib ash-shaytana maa razaqtanaa.”

“In the name of Allah, O Allah, keep the shaytan away from us and keep the shaytan away from what You have blessed us with.”

3. Note there are 2 events after which you are considered in a state of janabah (i.e. when ghusl is mandatory)…

i. When the two private parts touch

ii. When one has a wet dream

4. If after your act of intimacy, you decide to sleep or eat before making ghusl, it is recommended that you make wudu first.

5. Reciting or touching the Quran is not allowed while in the state of janabah.

6. When a marriage gets rocky, don’t isolate yourself. There is no shame in seeking counsel with trusted family, friends, and professional therapists.

7. Always turn to Allah in Dua for all your needs and complaints. Always be in a state of shukr for all your blessings.

May Allah (swt) bless you with a marriage filled with love and mercy.

Yours

Tahajjud

30 Mar
Assalaamualikum Muhammad,

Prophet (pbuh) said: “The Lord descends every night to the lowest heaven when one-third of the night remains and says: ‘Who will call upon Me, that I may answer Him? Who will ask of Me, that I may give him? Who will seek My forgiveness, that I may forgive him?’” [Bukhari and Muslim]

How many of us take benefit of this opportunity? Prophet (pbuh), the Sahaba, and the Salaf were very regular in their Tahajjud prayers. Allah (swt) is very pleased with a person who leaves his sleep in the middle of the night, only to worship His Lord. Tahajjud prayer can be performed only by the one who is sincere in his love, faith and worship of Allah (swt) as there can be no riya (show off) at this time of the night. The slave is alone with His Lord, weeping from His fear, crying out about his problems to Him, and seeking His help.

O mankind, We have created you from a male and a female & have made you into nations & tribes for you to know one another. Truly, the noblest of you with God is the most pious. Truly, God is All-Knowing, All-Aware.
