DUA

DUA

Please take a moment to relax your mind and humble
your heart to focus on
ALLAH (Almighty GOD). Allow Allah, to occupy your
mind while you read this
DUA, If we can
take the time to read long jokes, stories, etc.,we
should give the same
respect to this DUA (Prayer). Friends that pray
together, stay together.
Let’s pray…

OH ALLAH, I thank You for this day. I thank You for
my being able to see and
to hear this morning.I’m blessed because You are
forgiving and understanding
Oh Allah. You have done so much for me & You keep on
blessing me. Forgive me
this day for everything I have done, said or thought
that was not pleasing
to you. I ask YOU now for Your forgiveness. Please
keep me safe from all
danger and harm.

Help me to start this day with a new attitude and
plenty of gratitude. Let
me make the best of each and every day to clear my
mind so that I can hear
from You. Please broaden my mind that I can accept
all things. Let me not
whine and whimper over things I have no control
over.

Let me continue to see sin through YOUR eyes and
acknowledge it as evil. And
when I sin, let me repent,and receive YOUR
forgiveness. And when this world
closes in on me, let me remember YOU – to slip away
and find a quiet place
to make DUA. It’s the best response when I’m pushed
beyond my limits. I know
that when I can’t make DUA, You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to
bless me that I may be a
blessing to others.

Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Keep me
uplifted that I may have
words of encouragement for others.

I make DUA for those that are lost and can’t find
their way. I make DUA for
those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I make
DUA for those who don’t
know You intimately. I make DUA for those that will
delete this without
sharing it with others. I make DUA for those that
don’t believe. But I thank
you that I believe.

I believe that Allah changes people and Allah
changes things. I make DUA for
all my sisters and brothers. For each and every
family member in their
households. I make DUA for peace, love and joy in
their homes that they are
out of debt and all their needs are met.

I make DUA that every eye that reads this knows
there is no problem,
circumstance, or situation greater than Allah. Every
Battle is in your hands
for You to fight. I make DUA that these words be
received into the hearts of
every eye that sees them and every mouth that
confesses them willingly. This
is my DUA. Aameen.

Torn

Torn

You gaze upon me blindly, not seeing the truth.
You see me for what I am not.
I am not like her.
The wings that held me up once were torn by emotion.
My eyes, amber velvet turned opaque green by tears.
My face, once radiant and smiling, now somber and wary by hatred.
This pain stamped an emotional burn upon my life.
Look at me; open your eyes to the sunshine that forever awaits.
A chained heart, sealed with eternal pain…
Breaking the shattered illusion where life was bliss.
Seeing the sun through the mist, through dark clouds…
Shackled forever to this misery, to this hatred.
Old wounds disturbed once again…

Take Back Islam: No More Double Standards Part 1

The Double-Standard Dilemma: Part I

Jennifer* was a convert Muslimah. Though she had only recently reverted to Islam, she was always a modest young woman, trusted wholly by family and friends.

About a year after her reversion, she met Ali*. He was a few years older than Jennifer, but since she had always been an “old soul” she was okay with the age gap. After meeting with him a few times, under halal (permitted) conditions, they agreed to marry. She had asked him every question that came to mind about their respective roles as husband and wife, but because of her conservative pre-marriage lifestyle, Jennifer assumed the basic routine of day-to-day living would remain generally the same for her.

One evening Jennifer made plans with a friend for dinner. Prior to going out, she let Ali know her plans, as he was also going out with…

Take Back Islam: No More Double Standards Part 2

The Double Standard Dilemma: Part II

Written by Stephanie Siam

Last week we met Ali and Jennifer, a newly-married Muslim couple hailing from opposite sides of the globe.

Ali and Jennifer were caught in an issue that often arises in new marriages of the Islamic persuasion: the double-standard. Specifically, that men are often held to (or hold themselves to) different customs, traditions, rules and expectations than women are – within their families, within their societies and within marriages.

As previously discussed, the first way the ridiculous double-standard appear in an Islamic marriage is through the unequal expression of anger. For more about this, please check out Part I here.

The second way double-standards pop up in marriage is through the concept of working – both inside and outside the home.

Working Inside the Home

It’s no secret the United States experienced its own Women’s Suffrage movement during the late…

8 Things To Consider When You’re Not Getting Better

Therese J. Borchard

armonkmed.comI keep getting the same email over and over again, and my heart aches each time I read it: “I have tried everything to overcome my depression, but nothing has helped. Is there anything else I can do or will I have to live the rest of my life plagued with sadness?”

First, hear these three words: there is hope. If there wasn’t any, I would not be alive writing my blog. I am one of the worst cases out there like you are. I have spent more years of my life fantasizing about death than wanting to be alive. I get it. But now I do enjoy some really good days—where I feel better than I ever have. And those good days keep me motivated to get through the harder ones. From my own 43 years of experience fighting the demon of hopelessness and from all my conversations…

I’m a cloud…

Daily Striving

Bismillah

It is He Who sendeth the winds like heralds of glad tidings, going before His mercy: when they have carried the heavy-laden clouds, We drive them to a land that is dead, make rain to descend thereon, and produce every kind of harvest therewith: thus shall We raise up the dead: perchance ye may remember. 

(  سورة الأعراف  , Al-Araf, Chapter #7, Verse #57)

I’m a cloud not aimlessly drifting in the sky but gently being guided in the vast sky of Allah. For I have a purpose and together with my sisters I will achieve a humbling legacy that will benefit all those it is blessed to touch, same way as rain blesses the parched earth and calls forth from it abundance that beautifies and nourish as well as enrich in a variety of ways. And just like the clouds pass away so…

Unbeneficial Faith

Faith is a worth gift from Allah. We cannot buy it in markets or any places (I meant, faith is not a commodity), nor from the righteous parents. I have ever read and watched from any medias, a few Muslims sold their faiths and changed by dunya. Prophet Noah Alaihi Salam couldn’t give faith and hidayah to his son and his wife. Our prophet Muhammad SAW couldn’t  give faith to his lovely uncle Abu Thalib. Prophet Luth couldn’t give guidance to his wife. Hidayah and faith are Allah’s authority only.

When we get faith, we should keep it, and pour it with good actions, so our faiths will increased, more and more.

Is there unbeneficial faith?

Yes, there is. Pharaoh’s faith is one of it. Allah has told about Pharaoh and his arrogance in Holy books in many…
