REPENTANCE: The only Way out of Hardships

by Imâm al-Madîna al-Munawarrah 'Alî Abd-ur-Rahmân al-Hudhaifî
All praise is due to Allaah, Lord of all the worlds. May His blessings and benedictions be upon the Messenger, his household and companions.

Fellow Muslims! Fear Allaah and hold fast unto Islaam. That is the most trustworthy handhold. It is the fear of Allaah that sets the matters of one’s life and Hereafter right. Know also that Allaah’s Sunnah (His rules on His creatures) in this universe never changes. Allaah says,

“No change will you find in Allaah’s Sunnah (way of dealing) and no turning off will you find in Allaah’s Sunnah.” (Faatir 35:43)

It is in the Sunnah of Allaah and His rules that whoever sows good will harvest good and that whoever sows evil will harvest evil. He says,

“Whoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant) shall see it. And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom shall see it.” (Az-Zalzalah 99:7-8)

It is a rule of Allaah over His creatures that whoever takes the way that leads to the success of his life of this world and its pleasure shall attain whatever Allaah has destined for him of this world and whoever takes the way that leads to the success of his hereafter and the Paradise, Allaah will make him reach his goal. Also, whoever takes the way that leads to the success of both this world and the Hereafter, obeys Allaah and abstain from sins, he will attain the success of this both world and the Hereafter. Allaah says,

“Whoever desires the quick-passing (transitory enjoyment of this world), We readily grant him what We will for whom We like. Then afterwards, We have appointed for him Hell; he will burn therein disgraced and rejected (far away from Allaah’s Mercy). And whoever desires the Hereafter and strives for it, with the necessary effort due for it, then such are the ones whose striving shall be appreciated. On each –these as well as those- We bestow from the Bounties of your Lord. And the Bounties of your Lord can never be forbidden.” (Al-Israa’ 17:18-20) read more

It is reported of the Prophet that he said: "No preoccupying concern, or sadness inflicts a servant whereupon he says: Allãhumma 'innee `abduka, wabnu `abdika, wabnu 'amatika, nasiyatee biyadika, mãdhin fiyya hukmuka, `adlun fiyya qadhã'uka, 'as'aluka bikulli 'ismin huwa laka, sammayta bihi nafsaka, 'aw 'anzaltahu fee kitãbika, 'aw `allamtahu 'ahadan min khalqika, 'aw 'ista'tharta bihi fee `ilmil ghaybi `indaka, 'an taj`alal qur'ãna rabee`a qalbee, wa noora sadree, wa jalã'a huznee, wa thahãba hammee..

O my 'ilãh I am your bondservant, son of your bondsman, and son of your bondswoman. My forelock is in Your Hands; Your judgement is continuously being carried out upon me; Your sentence upon me is just. I ask You with every name that is Yours, with which You have named Yourself, brought down in Your book, taught to one of Your creation, or have preferred for Yourself in the hidden knowledge, with You: that You make the Qur'ãn the spring of my heart, and the light of my chest, and the dispelling of my sadness, and deportation of my [preoccupying] concern. Except that Allah would dispel his concern and his sadness, and would replace it with ease and relaxation for him."

Salaah The Connection To Our Lord - Shk Zikrullah Khan - Part 2

The Salaah, as Shk Zikrullah Khan explained, is a medium to seek forgiveness from Allah Ta’ala for our shortcomings. The Salaah is to implore Allah Ta’ala to reform us. The Salaah is to petition Allah Ta’ala to guide us.

Shk Zikrullah mentioned that Salaah is the Connection to our Rabb, Lord of the Worlds and the Way of our master and leader Muhammad Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam. Why do many Muslims, who, despite testifying that there is None Worthy of Worship but Allah and that Muhammad Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam is the Final Messenger of Allah, still discard Salaah?

Furthermore, Shk Zikrullah mentioned that those who are fortunate enough to pray Salaah, should strive to improve the condition of their Salaah. Rasulullah Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam, in a Hadith, said to the effect that the worst thief is he who steals in his Salaah. This refers to those of us who do not execute our postures correctly and do not pause adequately between postures. This is part 2 of 2… Listen

A company, feeling it was time for a shake-up, hires a new boss. This new boss is determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the new boss notices a guy leaning on a wall. The room is full of workers and he wants to let them know he means business!

The boss walks up to the guy and asks, "And how much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young fellow looks at him and replies, "I make R300.00 a week. Why?"

The boss then hands the guy R1,200 in cash and screams, "Here's four weeks pay, now GO and don't come back!"

Feeling pretty good about his first firing, the boss looks around the room and asks, "Does anyone want to tell me what job that boy was doing here?"

With a sheepish grin, one of the other workers mutters, He came to deliver the pizza.."Pizza delivery guy from pizza shop..
