A small token of appreciation : Just my scribble :p

Oh Allah,
I am thankful indeed for Your gifts
that You have showered upon me
the wonderful life
of being a daughter
a sister
a friend
a wife
and a future mother? (InshaAllah.. ;)

Oh Allah,
Please do not let me be astrayed
like those who let themselves be astrayed
forgetting the Deen
forgetting the Quraan and the Sunnah
losing their haya' (shyness) and losing their iman
without a strong foundation
and constant urge to seek the
beautiful knowledge of Islam

How easily one man can be fooled
in this life full of fitnah and confusion
where Muslims are seen as strangers
growing beard seems foolish,
following the Sunnah seems too religious
outdated, backward and ridiculous

It doesn't matter how these ignorant people judge
for the best to Judge is You, ya Allah
You see our action and intention
You know what is in our heart
You know how we live our life
following the beautiful Deen of Islam
full of constant trials and tribulations
for this is the journey to Jannah
or following the footsteps of a disbeliever
full of materialism, so-called liberal modernisation and false happiness
forgetting that every life shall taste death
and the akhirah (hereafter) is eternal
they can reject the truth
and enjoy this worldly life
but they cannot alter
the date, time, location of death's occurence

to prepare ourselves to meet Him
as Muslims we should follow this Deen
for this Deen has been created by Him

in our hearts, full of humility
and in our soul, full of hope
the path of Islam we should follow
without any doubt
without any sorrow
for we believe and we obey Him
and His beloved Messengers
the best example among men

Oh Allah,
make me among the righteous people
among the blessed ones
among the best of your creation
for Jannah is what I hope to achieve
and this worldly life is but a test
from You

Oh Allah,
Only to You I seek help
Only to You I prayed to
For only You who know what is in my heart
And that is enough for me.



"If a person holds onto my Sunnah when corruption is rampant among my Ummah, he will receive the rewards of a martyr". [Tabarani]

"Verily, there will be days waiting for you that those who persevere in holding onto Islam will feel like they are holding glowing fire in their hands." It will be hard to live in total compliance with Islam. "Whoever practices Islam during such a time will be given the rewards of fifty people who do the same deeds."

Since it will be difficult to practice Islam, one person will receive fifty times their rewards. According to Abu Dawud, one of the Companions of the Prophet asked, "O Prophet of Allah, are the rewards of the fifty people from among ourselves or from among them?" That is, "Will these rewards be the same as the rewards given to the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad or to the people of their own time?"
The Hadith literature clearly state that the Companions are the best Muslims of all time.

[4] No-one else can reach their level because the Companions were fortunate enough to see our beloved Prophet with their own eyes and listen to him in person. They received enlightenment and inspiration straight from the Prophet Muhammad.

The Companions were aware of their status, so they asked if the rewards of fifty persons mentioned above would be equivalent to the rewards of fifty Companions or to the rewards of fifty ordinary people. Upon this inquiry, the holy Prophet Muhammad responded: "The rewards of fifty among you."

[4] The Companions of the Prophet were very special for the Prophet Muhammad said: The best of the time periods is my time, and best of the people are my Companions, then those who come after them, then those who come after them."


When Corruption Prevails by Rabia Mills


Surah An-Nisa'
59. O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad ), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger (), if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination.

60. Have you seen those (hyprocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Taghut (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaitan (Satan) wishes to lead them far astray.

61. And when it is said to them: "Come to what Allah has sent down and to the Messenger (Muhammad )," you (Muhammad ) see the hypocrites turn away from you (Muhammad ) with aversion.

62. How then, when a catastrophe befalls them because of what their hands have sent forth, they come to you swearing by Allah, "We meant no more than goodwill and conciliation!"

63. They (hypocrites) are those of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts; so turn aside from them (do not punish them) but admonish them, and speak to them an effective word (i.e. to believe in Allah, worship Him, obey Him, and be afraid of Him) to reach their innerselves.

64. We sent no Messenger, but to be obeyed by Allah's Leave. If they (hypocrites), when they had been unjust to themselves, had come to you (Muhammad ) and begged Allah's Forgiveness, and the Messenger had begged forgiveness for them: indeed, they would have found Allah All-Forgiving (One Who accepts repentance), Most Merciful.

65. But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad ) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission.

66. And if We had ordered them (saying), "Kill yourselves (i.e. the innnocent ones kill the guilty ones) or leave your homes," very few of them would have done it; but if they had done what they were told, it would have been better for them, and would have strengthened their (Faith);

67. And indeed We should then have bestowed upon them a great reward from Ourselves.

68. And indeed We should have guided them to a Straight Way.

69. And whoso obeys Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad ), then they will be in the company of those on whom Allah has bestowed His Grace, of the Prophets, the Siddiqin (those followers of the Prophets who were first and foremost to believe in them, like Abu Bakr As-Siddiq ), the martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are!

70. Such is the Bounty from Allah, and Allah is Sufficient as All-Knower.
