I wish I could do the first part... (Ins sha Allah)



 Imam Ibn Abi Dunya quoted:

كان حماد بن أبي سليمان يفطر في كل ليلة من شهر رمضان خمسين إنسانا فإذا كان ليلة الفطر كساهم ثوبا ثوبا

Hammaad bin Abee Sulaymaan used to provide iftaar for fifty people every night of Ramadan.

On the night of Eid al-Fitr he would buy all of these people a thawb each.

- Makarim al-Akhlaq 1/96



When 'Abdullaah bin Idrees (may Allah have mercy on him) was on his death bed his daughter started crying.

He said,

لا تبكي يا بنية ، فقد ختمت القرآن في هذا البيت أربعة آلاف ختمة

 "Do not cry, because I have finished the entire Qur'an four thousand times inside this house"

- Quoted by Imam Ibn Jawzi in Sifat al-Safwah 3/170

Advice of a father to his son.

 
Ibn al Jawzi's advice to his Son..

You should know, my son, may Allāh guide you to what is right, that man has been distinguished by intellect only so that he would act according to it. Bring it to the fore, use it in contemplation and spend time alone with yourself. You will conclude that you are a created being who has responsibilities and obligations and that the two angels are counting your every word and glance.

Every breath is a step closer to death. The time we spend in this world is short, the time we are held in our graves is long, and the punishment for following our base desires is calamitous.

Where is the delight of yesterday? It has departed leaving only regret in its wake. Where is the soul’s desire? How many has it brought low, how many has it caused to slip and falter? People have only attained happiness by going against their lusts and desires. People have only become wretched by giving preference to the life of this world.

Learn from the lives of kings and ascetics: where is the delights of the kings and where is the weariness of the ascetics? The only thing left is the abundant reward and beautiful mention for the pious, and the malicious words and calamitous punishment for the disobedient. It is as if those who starved never starved and those who ate to their fill never did so.

 Laziness in virtuous deeds is an evil companion indeed, and love of comfort causes regret greater than any enjoyment. So take heed and tire yourself for your self.

I hope that we can be sisters. ..


Second wife! The words reverberated through my brain. Why? Am I not good enough? Never! I will never accept a second wife! If you want a second wife you can go out and get one, as long as you know that I will not be here when you come back! 

Those were my words to my husband a few years ago when he mentioned to me that he is intending to marry a second time. 

It was a woman recently divorced, 4 children. She is having a hard time, he said, she does not know where the next meal is coming from or how to provide adequately for her children. 

"Where is their father?" I asked, "Can't he take care of his own kids? Why do you a strange man have to carry another man's burdon? Surely there are other ways that you can help her out financially without having to MARRY her! 

I could not imagine myself in a plural marriage. Sharing my husband with another woman. Sharing his love, his smiles, his jokes with a woman other than myself. 

I could not fathom him holding her close and whispering loving words in her ears. It was unacceptable. An outrage. After all I have been to him. Wife, lover, mother, doctor, housekeeper. 

I raised 3 of his beautiful children. How can he insult me by marrying another woman as if I am not good enough. Not pretty enough. Not young enough or just plain not ENOUGH! NO! I could not accept that and I vehemently made my stance clear to him.

If she walks in, I walk out! Plain and simple. If he is willing to risk our marriage, our life, our children for another woman, then he must go ahead. I will not stand for it! 

It all seems so many years ago now. When I thought that life would last forever and that nothing will ever change...But it did.. 

My husband did not get married to a second wife. After all my warnings and threats of leaving he abandoned the idea. I don't know what happened to the women and children. My guess is that they moved on to another town. 

He never mentioned a second wife again and I was happy with that. I managed to hang on to my husband but I didn't know that our time was running out. 

His last words to me were that he had a headache and is going to lie down till Esha. He never prayed Esha that night, because he never woke up. 

I was devastated by his sudden death. The man whom I have spent my life with, snatched away from me in a second. I mourned him for a long, long time. Neglecting my children and the business. Soon all went to waste and we started losing everything one by one. First the car then the shop, then the house. 

We moved in with my brother and his family. My 3 children and I crowded the house and my sister in law soon became annoyed by our presence. I needed to get out, to work and find a place of our own instead of living off the leftovers of others. But I had no skill. 

When my husband was alive we lived comfortably. I had no need to go out and work or or equip myself with a skill. Life was very difficult for me and my children and I wasn't young anymore. I missed him everyday with every beat of my heart. How could ones condition change so drastically? 

One day my brother told me that someone he knew is looking for a wife. He was a good person, good akhlaq and very pious. Perfect for me, but he wants me to be his second wife. 

It's the second time in my life that the word second wife was mentioned to me. But how different the circumstances. 

He came to my brothers house to see me. There was an immediate connection between us. I liked him and I liked everything about him. He told me that his first wife knows that he is intending to marry again but that she is obviously not supportive of the idea and that he doesn't know what her reaction will be when he tells her that he had found someone. His answer he said, will be dependent on her acceptance of Polygamy. 

I did Istikhara that night. I so desperately wanted it to work out. I remembered so many years ago when the life of another woman depended on my decision and what my decision was. I felt contrite, I felt that because I did not give another woman a chance, a space in my life, that Allah will punish me this time around. 

I repented, not once in my life did I think my action worthy of repentance because I had done nothing wrong. 

I only protected what was mine. Now that I am on the receiving end, I realised how wrong I was in denying another woman this PRIVELEGE of a husband. 

I prayed that she will accept me. He phoned me a few days later telling me that his wife is having a hard time accepting it but that she is willing to meet me. 

I was nervous the day of the meeting. I prayed a lot the day before and asked Allah to help me. When I met her, she was a person, a woman like me . A woman who loves her husband and fears losing him. 

She took my hand and with tears in her eyes said: " This is very hard for me, but I hope that we can be sisters" her words broke my heart. All I needed in these dark days was a hand reaching out to me and embracing me, giving me hope and the will to carry on.

His wife was to me, the woman that I could not be and I will be forever grateful for that. I thought that no one could love her husband the way I loved mine, but she taught me the true meaning of unconditional love.

What goes around, comes around.



There was a man in Isfahan who used to beat his wife but unfortunately she succumbed to his beating though he had not intended to kill her. But when she was dead he became fearful of her relatives. In a state of anxiety he came out of his house and met an acquaintance to whom he posed his problem.

The friend told him to invite a young man to his house and behead him and put the severed head next to the wife's corpse. Then he would tell the wife's relatives that he had found them together in bed and was unable to control his ire, and slew them both. The man liked the idea and sat at the doorway in anticipation of a young man. After sometime a handsome youth passed by his house. He invited him inside and beheaded him.

Then he summoned the wife's relatives and told them the fictitious story. They were satisfied but the person who had devised this plan had a teenage son who did not reach home that day. The man was worried and when the son failed to turn up he came to the house of the one whom he had offered evil advice and asked him if he carried out the plan suggested by him. Yes, said he and took him near the dead bodies. He was shocked when he saw that the youth he had killed was his own son.

His evil advice caused the death of his own son.

The moral of this story is that one who digs a pit for others falls into it himself.

A Story that will touch all our hearts.




Close to the border of Vietnam and Cambodia, Our goal was to hand out the AKIKAH and Sadaqah entrusted to us by our donors.   I met this Auntie on the side of the road and she stopped and stared right into my eyes and said something quietly.

I watched the tears fall from her eyes as she looked deeper into my eyes and then as if she was looking into my heart.  It seemed like she was speaking to me and I could understand the pain she had gone through.

She kept on looking into my eyes and said the same words again, but this time in a louder voice.

I asked our translator what she had said.

She said " My Grand Father spoke of men of legends who where Muslims with beards tall and strong who once came to our lands to help the poor and needy. They had promised to return once again to help us"

"Alhamdulillah Allah swt has sent you once again, please don't leave."

Subhanallah I broke down in tears, not knowing what to say,  I only felt embarrassment and regret for not helping the needy and Orphaned when I was younger.

We drink the bitter sadness as a sweet drink...



Inna Lillah wa Inna Ilaihi Raji'oun. Shaykh Muhammed Saleh Almunajjid, the founder and manager of the famous IslamQA website, is praying Janazah on his own son Anas, who was stabbed to death by unknown people this Fajr.
The mother of Anas wrote a poem about her son. I (sheik  waleed Abdul Hakeem) tried to make a rough translation:
As the caravans of sadness have approached us, where are the tears to console us? ... We do not cry over our afflicted because of Qadar (predestination), but we drink the bitter sadness as a sweet drink... Because there is no objection to what our Qadar has brought, nor do we object to what our Creator decided, but with the shroudings leaving, we bleed with sadness... O Allah, please forgive us for our tears on Anas, as he was the star taking us through darkness... Our lord, make eternal blessings his resting place, and send down upon us patience as our companion in hardship.
May Allah reward the parents for their Eman and the beautiful poem, and cool down their hearts with tranquility and patience!

An Amazing Story from Saudi Arabia.




What has happened in a Saudi town recently could only take place in films and the incident itself could be a good plot for a movie focusing on gallantry and nobility.

A girl in her 20s offered to marry a man who is nearly 40 years older than her just to save her father from a long jail term because of debt.

After failing to pay his debt of SAR 3 million, the girl’s father was arrested and faced many years in prison unless he settled his debt.

But the father from the central province of Al Qasseem told his creditor he cannot afford paying back, prompting the creditor to pursue his lawsuit against him..

Fearing for her father, his sole daughter phoned the creditor and told him she is ready to marry him if he drops his case against her father, who is also old.

“She told him her dowry is SR three million and he agreed. But he told her that he is much older than her and that he already has three wives. Yet she agreed to marry him,” the Arabic language daily ‘Al Watan’ said.

“They then agreed to meet at her house. She called a scholar to perform the marriage rites and waited for the old man, who came later with a lawyer.

“After a chat of nearly one hour, the creditor congratulated the girl for her brave and noble attitude in trying to help her father, but he told her he would not marry her because he wanted her to marry a man near her age.

“He then wrote a cheque for SR300,000 and gave the sum to the girl as a present for her future marriage.


“He dropped his case against her father and asked God to bless this girl, who he described as a phenomenon that may not be repeated.”

Effect of Good deeds...


Scientific studies confirm that doing good deeds positively affect the psychological status of human……

Recent scientists claim that People who carry out charity work and other good deeds experience less anger and stress and feel more positive and self-confident. The study at the University of Sussex’s Mindlab measured stress levels and other emotions of a group of men and women who performed good deeds for nine days.

Psychologist Dr David Lewis, who conducted the research, say that being more considerate, can reduce stress levels

Researchers say that effects of stress on the body are well documented: it can suppress the immune system, lead to a rise in blood pressure, increase risk of heart attack and stroke, and contribute to infertility. The research also found that good deeds had a positive chain reaction effect, with beneficiaries of the deeds feeling more motivated to help others themselves.

Previous research, at Harvard University, has shown that helping others also makes us mentally tougher and physically stronger.

Therefore we have to realize why Allah Almighty urges us to do good deeds for others as He Almighty says: (Then We gave the Book the (Qur'an) for inheritance to such of our slaves whom we chose. Then of them are some who wrong their owns elves, and of them are some who follow a middle course, and of them are some who are, by Allah's Leave, foremost in good deeds, that is indeed a great grace){ Surat Fatir - The Originator -verse32}

Indeed it’s a great grace to live in this life without anxiety, healthy and happy.

Thank you Allah for the blessing of Islam.

Love that cannot be cut...




My baby daughter, when you point to your belly button and ask "what's this" with a grin on your face, my mouth says "belly button," but my heart says:

This is the mark on your body that connects me to you. It doesn't fade with age. It will always be there to remind you that my lifeblood is your lifeblood. You are a part of me; you grew with me, you ate with me, you cried with me. I knew you before I met you, I loved you before I knew you.

So when you look down at your belly button, know that although you are out it the world now, roaming, learning, laughing, being…
you are still from me, you are still within me. An umbilical cord no longer connects our bodies, but a love that cannot be cut will always connect our hearts.
~Asma Hussein

"And We have enjoined upon man [care] for his parents. His mother carried him, [increasing her] in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years. Be grateful to Me and to your parents; to Me is the [final] destination" (31:14).

Care & Caution required...


"When a person we love falls ill, we say it is a test, but when a person we dislike falls ill, we say it is a punishment. When a person we love is afflicted with hardship, we say it is because he is a good person, but when a person we dislike is afflicted with hardship, we say it is because he has wronged others. Be very careful of handing out the wisdom of Allah behind His Decree based on your desire."

Indeed, whoever fears Allah,He will provide for them.




Last week, a viral video showed this Sudanese Shepperd who refused to accept 200 Riyals ($54) to pretend that he has lost one of the sheep of his owner despite his desperate need, and he said: "Even if you give me 200 thousand, by Allah I will not accept. What am I going to do when I go to my grave and meet my Creator? If I do, I'm afraid the sky will collapse on me." Allahu Akbar!

Today, the Sudanese embassy and famous scholars honoured him and handed him just that, 200 thousands riyals! He said he will use it to help his family and parents do Hajj and build them a home. Indeed, whoever fears Allah, He will provide for them, so live within your means and seek His help. You will own the Akhirah and the Duniya will come to you too.

Allahu Akber ! A Ground Breaking Research...



Subhanallah, Do babies know right from wrong? We already know the answer from our faith, but check out this new groundbreaking research.

Previously, psychologists taught that children are born with a blank brain, then they learn what's right and what's wrong only from society. However, in a new study published by Yale and reported on CNN today, Professor Paul Bloom proved that "Humans are born with a hard-wired morality, a sense of good and evil is bred in the brain" in his own words. Remember what Allah said? "And We have shown him (the human) both paths (good and evil)" (Al-Balad 90:10)

Moreover, he added "We are naturally moral beings, but our environment can enhance -- or sadly, degrade -- this innate moral sense." What did the Prophet peace be upon him say? "Every child is born on the Fitrah (knowing the truth, right, and wrong), but then his parents would Christianize him, Judianize him, or Magianize him" (Muslim 2658). Remember, Christianity teaches the opposite, that every child is born as a sinner, bearing the "original sin"!

I find no better words to conclude these finding than with the words of Allah "We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth." (Fussilat 41:53) 


~Sheik Waleed Abdul hakeem
 Children are not born out of any sin, original, inherited or derived. They are born on the religion of their nature, i.e., Islam.

Remember studies are only meant to increase our faith not prove it.We are already believers regardless of what the studies, because the creator knows more than any of his creation. here is the link and video:

A Plea To The Most Powerful.



Ya ALLAH give me neither too much nor too little of the riches of the world, so that I may neither overstep my limits nor forget my responsibilities.A small but sufficient amount is better than what is plentiful but causes distraction.

O the Most Gracious one, I ask you to show me your path. I believe with conviction that if you have destined  anything for me,it will be mine, even though the whole world is against it, and I do believe with conviction that if it is not destined to be mine, it will slip away from my hands even though it looks definite  or very promising.


Make perseverance friend of my brain and contentment of my heart.


To you I surrender and to you alone I ask for mercy grace and forgiveness.


Blessed is He in whose hand is dominion, and He is over all things competent -
