May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



By Sh Aaidh Al-Qarni

Do not worry about your wealth that is stored in vaults. Unless you have faith in Allah, your high castles and your green gardens will only bring you worry, grief, and hopelessness.

Do not be sad: even the diagnosis of the doctor and his medicine cannot make you happy if you have allowed sadness to dwell in your heart, letting it permeate your emotions and your existence.

Do not be sad: you have the ability to supplicate to Allah and thus excel at humbling yourself at the doorstep of the King of kings. You have the blessed last third of the night to invoke Allah and to rub your head upon the ground in prostration.

Do not be sad: Allah has created for you the earth and what is in it. He has caused gardens of beauty to grow, filling them with many kinds of plants and flowers in pairs, both male and female. And He has made tall palm trees, shining stars, forests, rivers and streams, yet you are sad!

Do not be sad: you drink water that is pure, you breathe fresh air, you walk upon your two feet in health, and you sleep the evenings in peace.

Do not be sad: Seek forgiveness from Allah often, for your Lord is Oft-Forgiving... "[Noah} said [to them}: 'Ask forgiveness from your Lord; verily, He is Oft-Forgiving. He will send rain to you in abundance; and give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens; and bestow on you rivers." (Qur'an 71: 10-12)

So seek forgiveness from Allah more often and you will reap the benefits of doing so: peace of mind, lawful provisions, righteous offspring, and plentiful rain.

Question: What do the Ahaadith say about eating seven Ajwa dates?

Answer: The Ajwa dates of Madinah Munawwarah have been blessed with special benefits:

  1. “He who has a morning meal of seven ‘ajwa dates will not suffer harm that day through poison or magic.” (Bukhari, Hadith 5327 and Muslim, Hadith 3814)
  2. Aisha RA reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “The ‘ajwah dates of al-‘Aliya contain healing, and they are an antidote (when taken as) first thing in the morning.” (Muslim, Hadith 3815)

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

75 Years

It's strange to think 75 years ago everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars.

Today, everyone has a car and only the rich own horses.
