RAMADAN REVIVAL HAPPENED…

 

and we want to share some

AMAZING LESSONS

FROM

SURAH AL ASR


Tafsir Surah al Asr


Speaker:  Graduate of Islamic university of Madinah, Sheikh MuAwiya


“( 1 )   By time,
( 2 )   Indeed, mankind is in loss,
( 3 )   Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.” (Surah al-asr)

 

The Sheikh derived these benefits for us to take from the surah:

  1. Allah swears by Al-Asr. Allah can take an oath like this to highlight its importance. We however, can only ever swear by Allah.
  2. Al-Asr refers to time.
  3. Verily, man is in a state of loss…we have the chance to earn jannah, by doing good deeds. But if we only earn hellfire, then we’ll be in loss. Allah save us amin!
  4. Illa- except.. an exception .. Except those who have iman in Allah, and knowledge of Him, and knowledge which bears the fruits of iman…
  5. and does righteous deeds- acting on the knowledge, following Islam, the religion of good.
  6. Advise one another to the truth, and advise one another to patience…
  7. So success is to believe in Allah, have ilm/knowledge of Him, His names and attributes, the religion and prophets (alayhimusalam), then acting on that ilm, and calling others to it, doing da’wah and being patient on it. Because you are going to be put to trial for various things when you call to Islam.

 

Ramadan is here WALHAMDULILLAH… time to put forward good deeds of obedience and avoid the forbidden to help us in the Akhirah, to attain Jannah.

 

Allah forgive any errors in this post and our lives, and Allah forgive all our errors, and make us among the muttaqeen. amin.

Oh Allah, let us witness Ramadan in your obedience. Allah bless our time in His cause. Allahumma salli wasallim ala nabiyyina Muhammad. amin

zariyat 1 zariyat 2 zariyat 3 zariyat 4

Read at QURAN KSU 

In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

 

( 1 )   By those [winds] scattering [dust] dispersing
( 2 )   And those [clouds] carrying a load [of water]
( 3 )   And those [ships] sailing with ease
( 4 )   And those [angels] apportioning [each] matter,
( 5 )   Indeed, what you are promised is true.
( 6 )   And indeed, the recompense is to occur.
( 7 )   By the heaven containing pathways,
( 8 )   Indeed, you are in differing speech.
( 9 )   Deluded away from the Qur’an is he who is deluded.
( 10 )   Destroyed are the falsifiers
( 11 )   Who are within a flood [of confusion] and heedless.
( 12 )   They ask, “When is the Day of Recompense?”
( 13 )   [It is] the Day they will be tormented over the Fire
( 14 )   [And will be told], “Taste your torment. This is that for which you were impatient.”
( 15 )   Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and springs,
( 16 )   Accepting what their Lord has given them. Indeed, they were before that doers of good.
( 17 )   They used to sleep but little of the night,
( 18 )   And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness,
( 19 )   And from their properties was [given] the right of the [needy] petitioner and the deprived.
( 20 )   And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith]
( 21 )   And in yourselves. Then will you not see?
( 22 )   And in the heaven is your provision and whatever you are promised.
( 23 )   Then by the Lord of the heaven and earth, indeed, it is truth – just as [sure as] it is that you are speaking.
( 24 )   Has there reached you the story of the honored guests of Abraham? –
( 25 )   When they entered upon him and said, “[We greet you with] peace.” He answered, “[And upon you] peace, [you are] a people unknown.
( 26 )   Then he went to his family and came with a fat [roasted] calf
( 27 )   And placed it near them; he said, “Will you not eat?”
( 28 )   And he felt from them apprehension. They said, “Fear not,” and gave him good tidings of a learned boy.
( 29 )   And his wife approached with a cry [of alarm] and struck her face and said, “[I am] a barren old woman!”
( 30 )   They said, “Thus has said your Lord; indeed, He is the Wise, the Knowing.”
( 31 )   [Abraham] said, “Then what is your business [here], O messengers?”
( 32 )   They said, “Indeed, we have been sent to a people of criminals
( 33 )   To send down upon them stones of clay,
( 34 )   Marked in the presence of your Lord for the transgressors.”
( 35 )   So We brought out whoever was in the cities of the believers.
( 36 )   And We found not within them other than a [single] house of Muslims.
( 37 )   And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.
( 38 )   And in Moses [was a sign], when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority.
( 39 )   But he turned away with his supporters and said,” A magician or a madman.”
( 40 )   So We took him and his soldiers and cast them into the sea, and he was blameworthy.
( 41 )   And in ‘Aad [was a sign], when We sent against them the barren wind.
( 42 )   It left nothing of what it came upon but that it made it like disintegrated ruins.
( 43 )   And in Thamud, when it was said to them, “Enjoy yourselves for a time.”
( 44 )   But they were insolent toward the command of their Lord, so the thunderbolt seized them while they were looking on.
( 45 )   And they were unable to arise, nor could they defend themselves.
( 46 )   And [We destroyed] the people of Noah before; indeed, they were a people defiantly disobedient.
( 47 )   And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.
( 48 )   And the earth We have spread out, and excellent is the preparer.
( 49 )   And of all things We created two mates; perhaps you will remember.
( 50 )   So flee to Allah. Indeed, I am to you from Him a clear warner.
( 51 )   And do not make [as equal] with Allah another deity. Indeed, I am to you from Him a clear warner.
( 52 )   Similarly, there came not to those before them any messenger except that they said, “A magician or a madman.”
( 53 )   Did they suggest it to them? Rather, they [themselves] are a transgressing people.
( 54 )   So leave them, [O Muhammad], for you are not to be blamed.
( 55 )   And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers.
( 56 )   And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.
( 57 )   I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed Me.
( 58 )   Indeed, it is Allah who is the [continual] Provider, the firm possessor of strength.
( 59 )   And indeed, for those who have wronged is a portion [of punishment] like the portion of their predecessors, so let them not impatiently urge Me.
( 60 )   And woe to those who have disbelieved from their Day which they are promised.

 

 

Oh My God! I’m lost for words…yet bursting to say something…

I keep clicking replay…

I can listen to this all day… I feel something in my heart when I read and listen to this. I see warnings, reminders, promises. I see truth. I see proof. I see meaning. I see no error. I feel a sense of emergency, of urgency. I feel I have to make a move. I have to act upon it. I feel I found the purpose in life.

I feel I need to run back to The One Who gave me life, The One Who will cause me to die, The One Who will resurrect me, and punish or reward me accordingly.

I need to run back to Allah alone.

So do you.

Be objective. Be sincere. Be open minded. I’m sure you’ll feel something too.

Oh Allaah the One Who changes the hearts, keep my heart firm upon Your religion!  Guide us to preserve on Your straight path forever. Allahumma salli wasallim alaa nabiyinaa Muhammad  sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Ameen.

 

With love for the sake of The One.

Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq!(#Love)

Standard

Bismillah

Asalamu alaykum

SubhanAllah, have you heard the story of the companion, Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq Radi Allahu anh…

He was the best friend of the best of creation, Rasoolullah Muhammad Sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

Abu Bakr’s friendship with the final messenger of Allah, was a true friendship based on love… on trust… on loyalty… on truthfulness.

What an amazing companion radi Allahu anh! There are accounts of his love for the messenger of Allah, narrations of how he stuck with the messenger peace be upon him, in his most testing times, when he was opposed by his people, when he was threatened by the idolators, when he was turned out from his birthtown, Abu Bakr stuck with him through thick and thin. He enthusiastically accompanied him on the migration to Madinah. He preferred the messenger Muhammad peace be upon him to himself, radi Allahu anh. Because he believed that Muhammad peace be upon truly was the messenger of Allah.

He loved the messenger dearly, for the sake of Allah.

And that’s what you call a true friendship.

Hear more about this truthful companion Radi Allahu anh!

Love and share!

 

May Allah grant us perfect love for Him alone, and love for His messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the way the companions like amazing Abu bakr Radi Allahu anh loved him.

ameen ya Rab al alameen.

With Love for the sake of Allah!
