Surah At-Talaq (The Divorce)
This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 12 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

"And whoever fears Allah, for him Allah brings forth a way out, and gives him provision (of his needs from where he does not even imagine... 2/3)."

COMMENTARY: The word Taqwa primarily and literally means 'to guard' or 'to refrain'. In Islamic terminology it signifies 'to guard against sins'. When the word is related to Allah, it is
translated as 'to fear Allah' and implies 'to avoid disobedience of Allah and guard against sins'.

There are two benefits of Taqwa mentioned in this verse:

1. By exercising Taqwa, Allah creates a way out to guard oneself. The question is 'Guard against what?' The correct answer is that it is general, 'against all mundane difficulties and hardships as well as all hardships and difficulties of the Hereafter' and the verse implies that for an Allah-fearing person Allah paves the way to salvage him from the difficulties and hardships of this world as well as from the horrors of the next world.

2. By exercising Taqwa, Allah will provide for the Allah-fearing person Rizq [literally 'provision'] from where he does not expect. The Rizq in this context refers to anything one needs, whether any mundane need or any need of the Hereafter. Allah has promised the righteous believers in this verse that He will ease every difficulty of theirs and provide for them all their needs from resources they never expected or thought about. [RUH]

In keeping with the present context, some of the commentators interpret the verse thus: The divorcing husband or the divorced wife, both or whoever of them is Allah-fearing, Allah will give them salvation from the horrors of divorce or termination of marriage experienced at the time of its happening. In other words, the man will be given a compatible wife and the woman will be given a compatible husband. Obviously the primary meaning of the verse comprehends all kinds of adversities and needs, including the needs of the husband and wife. [RUHUL MA'AANI]

Sometimes I try to move, a mountain or a tree
Only to realise, the weakness within me

Allah wants us only, to plant little seeds
It will later germinate, into gigantic deeds

Do what you supposed to, and do it to your best
You will see how Allah, will surely do the rest

Place your trust in Him, He’ll be there for you
to care for your needs, & then support you through

Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life... Never ask for a lighter rain.
Just make Dua for a better Umbrella. That is attitude.

Life is not about finding the right person, but creating the right relationship. It's not how we care in the beginning, but how much we care 'til the very end.

Some people always throw stones in your path. It depends on you what you make with them - a wall or a bridge?

Remember you are the architect of your life. Search for a beautiful heart, but don't search for a beautiful face. Because beautiful things are not always good, but good things are always beautiful. It's not important to hold all the good cards in life. But it's important how well you play with the cards you hold.

Often when we lose all hope and think this is the end, The Almighty smiles from above and says, `Relax dear, it's just a bend. Not the end.'

Concept Of Hijab By Ml Ravat - Discussion 13

Ml Ravat, in this part, did a recap on the Verse of Surah Ahzab i.e. Verse 33 in Juz 22 in which instructions are given on the appropriate manner a woman should follow when leaving her home. Moulana explained that 'Waqarna Fee Buyooti Kunna' means, that a woman may leave her home out of necessity provided she adheres to the laws of Hijab.

Allah Ta’ala addresses the Sahabah Radiallahu`Anhum with regards the Azwaajum Mutaharat in Verse 53 of Surah Ahzab,`When you ask them (the Pure Wives of Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wa Sallam) for anything, then ask them from behind a curtain (without seeing them). This is purer for your hearts and for their hearts (for it safeguards you from evil thoughts and desires).’

Although this Ayaah was revealed after a specific incident and it is addressed to the Sahabah Radiallahu`Anhum Wa`Anhun and the Azwaajum Mutaharat, the Ulema are unanimous that it applies to all Muslims till Qiyamah. The lesson for all of us, as mentioned by Moulana, is that if we need to ask or interact with a Ghair Mahram for anything, then we should do so from behind a Hijab.

I was going to look for my missing watch...
but I could never find the time.

I used to have a fear of hurdles...
but I got over it.

Did you hear about the guy who got hit in the head with a can of soda? . . .
He was lucky it was a soft drink.

I wanted to lose weight so I went to the paint store....
I heard I could get thinners there.
