The Tests of The Faith

Qolamii

Assalamu’alaikum everyone! 💗

Less money…
It’s a test!

Less foods…
It’s a test!

Less fruits…
It’s a test!

Loss of family,
Children,
Friends,
Jobs and
Properties,
Those’re tests from Allah!
Can we pass the hardships
patiently and being grateful
that we still have faith
in our hearts?

Having a lot of money…
It’s a test!
Having a lot of foods…
It’s a test!
Having a beautiful face,
A high status,
A great job,
And having a lot of
Properties,
Those’re tests from Allah!
Can we become grateful people
to all the mercies those
we have received from Allah?

The difficulties
The happiness
are tests from Allah!

Sometimes,
People can pass
The hardships easier
than being tested
with the happiness.

الحق من الله، والخطاء مني

REFLECTIONS ON JUZ 11

Alhuda, The Quran Club

  • It is our responsibility to learn Quran & spread the message of Quran to people. Its fardh kifayah if none of us will do, then all of us will be sinful. (Surah At-Tawba: 122)
  • If we make habit of saying, Subhan Allah & Alhumdolilah in dunya, it will be part of our conversation in Jannah insha’Allah. (Surah Yunus: 10)

Surah Yunus 1 to 109

  • [10:3 & 31] Allah established Himself above the Throne arranging all the matters of the entire creation, that means that He manages the affairs of every single thing out there, be it the skies, earth, animals, insects, birds, humans or the unborn in the bellies of all females.

Thirty Days of Imperfection

As Salam Alikum
Thanks for writing this I can totally relate to this

The weeks leading up to a new Muslim’s very first Ramadan are filled with excitement and curiosity. We hear motivational speeches about the feelings of peace, ease and contentment Ramadan brings. We read inspiring articles of people who finish reading the whole of Qur’an in thirty days. We learn about Muslims gathering together in congregation standing during late hours of the night in prayer while long portions of the Qur’an are recited. Ramadan is portrayed as a transcendent, seemingly magical, month in which everything will be easier and distractions will be fewer; a month where our prayers will become better and finishing the Qur’an will be a breeze. This leads to great disappointment for new Muslims when the reality of Ramadan hits.

We begin to realize that fasting is in fact hard, our prayers aren’t necessarily better or more focused as we assumed they would be, our mind still wanders…

Uthaimeen on Opening One’s Fast with an Odd Number of Dates…..Odd Number is not mentioned as Sunnah for breaking fast

Authentic Knowledge from Quran & Sunnah

Uthaimeen on Opening One’s Fast with an Odd Number of Dates
by The Albaani Blog

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen was asked, “I’ve heard that when opening his fast, a person must do so with an odd number of dates, i.e., five or seven and so on, so is that obligatory?”
He replied, “It is not obligatory, in fact it is not even Sunnah for a person to break his fast with an odd number of dates like three or five or seven or nine except for the day of Eed al-Fitr, for it has been established that the Prophet ﷺ would not go to the prayer on the day of Eed al-Fitr until he had eaten an odd number of dates. The Prophet ﷺ would not purposefully intend to eat an odd number of dates in other situations.”
Nurun ’alad-Darb, 354.
Anas b. Mâik narrates that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him)…

Authentic Knowledge from Quran & Sunnah

Person travelling from one country to another where the new crescent of Shawwal has been sighted

by AbdurRahman.org

If a person travels from one country to another where the new crescent of Shawwal has been sighted, should he follow them and break his fast?
Q. 394. If a fasting person travels from one Islamic country to another and it was announced in the first country that the new crescent of Shawwal has been sighted, should he follow them and break his fast, bearing in mind that the new crescent of Shawwal has not yet been sighted in the second country?
A. If a person travels from one Islamic country to another, and the breaking of the fast in the country to which he has travelled was delayed, then he should remain (fasting) with them until they break their fast, because fasting is when the people fast and breaking the fast…

This is for Allaah, What is for Me? – Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Authentic Knowledge from Quran & Sunnah

This is for Allaah, What is for Me? – Translated by Abbas Abu Yahyaby AbdurRahman.org

From Anas – RadhiAllaahu anhu – who said: ‘A Bedouin came to the Prophet – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – and said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah! Teach me some goodness.’
So the Prophet – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – took him by the hand and said:
” قل: سبحان الله، والحمد لله، ولا إله إلا الله، والله أكبر.
‘Say: ‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest.’
(Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu Akbar.)’
The Bedouin counted them on his hand, when he finished he began to reflect then came back to the Prophet.
The Prophet – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – smiled and said:
’The desperate one has reflected.’
