  • Points of benefit of slander hadith (pgs. 16-17):IMG_3581IMG_3582IMG_3583IMG_3584IMG_3585
  • Virtue of ‘Aaishah: ‘Aaishah narrated: “Aflah the brother of Aboo al-Qu’ais, her foster uncle, came, asking permission to enter upon her after the verse of al-Hijaab was revealed. She said: I did not allow him to enter, but when Allah’s Messenger came, I told him what I had done, and he ordered me to give him permission. And in another narration: She said, ‘I did not allow him to enter, so he [Aflah] said, ‘You prevent me while I am your uncle?’ So I said: ‘I will not allow you until after I ask the permission of the Prophet!’ (Fath-ul-Baaree (4713)) (pgs. 17-18)  
  • Merit of ‘Aaishah, Abu Bakr, and ‘Umar: Narrated ‘Amr bin al-‘Aas: The Prophet deputed me to lead the army of Dhaat-as-Salaasil. I came to him and said, “Who is the most beloved person to you?” He…

Poem (that was stated) that made Imam Ahmad cry

إذا ما قال لي ربي .. أما استحييت تعصيني

وتخفي الذنب عن خلقي .. وبالعصيان تأتيني
If my Lord asks me
“Have you no shame in disobeying me?
You hide your faults from my creation
yet full of sin you come to Me”

فكيف أجيب يا ويحي .. ومن ذا سوف يحميني
So what will I answer? O’ Woe to me,
and who shall protect me do you see?

أسلي النفس بالآمال .. من حين إلى حين
I keep forestalling my soul
with thoughts of hope from time to time

وأنسى ما وراء الموت .. ماذا بعد تكفيني
And forgetting what is to come after death,
and after I am warped in the sheets of the dead

كاني قد ضمنت العيش .. ليس الموت يأتيني
As if I have guaranteed living forever,
and that death will not overcome me

وجاءت سكرة الموت الشديدة من سيحميني
Then the harsh drunkenness of death overtakes me,
who now will be able to protect me?

نظرت إلى الوجوه أليس منهم من سيفديني
I looked at the faces, is there not from amongst them
who will ransom me?

سأسأل ما الذي قدمت في دنياي ينجيني
I will be asked
what have I put forth in my life to save myself

فكيف إجابتي من بعد ما فرطت في ديني
So what will I answer,
after I’ve been neglectful regarding my Deen

ويا ويحي ألم أسمع كلام الله يدعوني
O’ woe to me, did I not hear the
Speech of Allah calling out to me??

ألم أسمع لما قد جاء في ق و يس
Did I not hear what has come in Qaaf’n, wa Yaseen’i

ألم أسمع بيوم الحشر يوم الجمع والدين
Did i not hear of the day the crowds will be summoned,
the day we will be collected, and the day of al-Deen’i

ألم أسمع منادي الموت يدعوني يناديني
Did I not hear the caller of death
calling me; seeking me

فيا رباه عبد تائب من ذا سيؤويه
O my lord a slave to you I come repenting,
who than shall grant me shelter?

سوى رب غفور واسع للحق يهديني
Other than an oft-forgiving Lord,
to the truth he will guide me

أتيت إليك فارحمني وثقل في موازيني
I have come to you, so have mercy on me,
and make heavy my weights

وخفف في جزائي أنت أرجى من يجازيني
And lighten my reckoning you are the best
of who will bring me to reckoning

#SAADIQspeaks Islamic Book Recommendation

IMG_3564.PNG

Subhan’Allâh, this is one of the best books that I’ve read in a very long time. One word that I can use to explain the affect of this book is “MOTIVATION.” I highly recommend that every Muslim purchase this book for their library!

#SAADIQspeaks

I love Imam Ash-Shafi’i: One of my inspirations

قل بما شئت في مسبة عرضي
فسكوتي عن اللئيم جواب
ما أنا عادم الجواب ولكن
ما من الأسد أن تجيب الكلاب
‘Say what you wish in abuse of me,
For my silence towards the idiot is indeed an answer.
I am not at a loss for a response but rather,
It does not befit the lion to answer the dogs.’

It’s been a while…

Posting my first post in over a year since I first created this blog, is replenishing. It brings back so many memories of my sole intention of first creating this blog. At first, I wanted to be an advocate for Muslim women worldwide. Not saying that anything has changed about my view upon advocacy, but, this go around…things are different. I am simply expressing myself and “letting my voice be heard.” After deciding that a journal was not quite for me, I made the decision to return to my blog to vent and share things “with myself” (in a sense) but, still in public. 

Having numerous thoughts jumbled in head, ALL THE TIME, I turn to this blog to vent and let things out. I don’t have that specific and special someone that I can “let everything out” to. Therefore, this is what my blog is for…

Whatever is on my mind, at any given time, is being spilled into the typing of words upon this screen…
