💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

💌 As long as you have Allah and you trust Him always,

Moments spent alone mustn’t make you bored nor afraid.

Don’t feel guilty avoiding those who seem to be fake,

Who enjoy gossip, prefer dunya and they’re two-faced.

~*~

Those who act nice from the front yet backbite from behind,

Secretly despising you despite their rehearsed smiles,

And frenemies of their likes do not deserve your time.

Still maintain your noble manners and respect their rights.

~*~

It’s your right to choose who gets to enter your circle

Of trusted companions with similar traits and goals.

If some can’t help you serve Allah the Most Merciful,

Leave them for Allah’s sake without feeling regretful.

~*~

You need genuine friends who can benefit your soul,

Who are helpful, understanding and reliable,

Who can’t envy your achievements and your special role,

Whose desire for Jannah exceeds their love for this world.

~*~

If sincere comrades in your place are too hard to find,

Surrounded by haters who dislike your Imaan’s light,

Jealously threatened by your faith and positive vibes,

Then being alone with Allah is perfectly fine.

~*~

For Allah’s Qadr to send good friends patiently wait.

They’ll come around on earth or in Paradise someday.

Your worth isn’t based on popularity nor fame.

Good deeds done sincerely are what can keep your soul saved.

~*~

So regardless of how many get along with you,

Focus on doing good deeds Allah wants you to do.

Thank Allah for the few who recognize your value.

Strive together with courage, patience and gratitude.

~*~

 💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


💌 If one day you and a group of friends are chatting then suddenly someone jokes about a mutual friend who isn’t around to defend themselves, and their description of the subject is actually true, what would your immediate reaction be? Supposing somebody says “So-and-so reeks, they should have a warning sign that states "toxic smell - do not come close” and another one agrees laughing “Yeah their BO totally reminds me of dead fish. They ought to shower more often, seriously.” will you join in the conversation and add a hilarious comment only to earn that Muslim’s sins, walk away, or defend the absentee saying something like “Maybe they did bathe in the morning but they’re all sweaty because they get stressed out easily, or they have internal health issues.” or “What do you gain from talking about someone’s stench? I’m sure all of us humans have smelt ike perspiration at one point or another. Why talk like experts at sniffing and identifying fragrances? Are you training yourselves to be canines? Be quiet, if you can’t afford to be nice.” Then if the mutual friend casually walks in during the discussion, would you tell them “Hey can you do something about your smell? Your disturbing odor is inspiring these clowns to gossip and I’m tired of tolerating their complaints. Like put on perfume, change your shirt or take a bath ASAP or we’ll stink together.” or will you take your friend aside, go to a more secluded area and kindly advise them stating “You know I love you for Allah’s sake and care about you, right? And you understand that, as your friend, I would never want to do or say anything to purposely hurt you? Well, I notice that sometimes you emit bodily smells which can offend some people. Don’t get me wrong, I also sweat a lot especially on hot days. But have you considered trying a different deodorant like the one I use or lime/calamansi juice, changing your garments more frequently, and avoiding wearing clothes that are soaking wet? If you take my advice, I guarantee you’ll feel so much better when you keep yourself smelling fresh.”

There is a positive impact in being advised by a loved one privately instead of receiving advice while several spectators are hearing you being criticized. The chances of a loved one taking your advice willingly if you admonish them in a one-on-one manner is much greater than if you were to point out their flaws and scolded them in public.

Naturally most people would avoid and no longer trust an individual who deliberately embarrassed them or gossiped about them. So next time you see a friend who decided to stop wearing the hijab for some personal reason, rather than gossiping to your other friends about them, arrogantly looking down on how she has become “lost, trashy, ignorant, deviant, and misguided”, you can approach her directly, speak where no bystanders are nearby to gather information for their childish gossip, and educate her lovingly about the importance of wearing the hijab for Allah’s sake until Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala softens her heart and she displays significant improvement, appreciating the virtues of modesty. Another alternative is to share articles about why Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala legislated Muslim women to wear the hijab and include her in your Du'as, praying that Allah the Most Merciful guides her someday, instead of gossiping with those who act as though they’re flawless and who forget that they too are humanly capable of making mistakes.

💌 The ability to think is a test from Allah.

Intellect is nothing if it leads not to Jannah,

Or if it misleads one to get attached to dunya.

When not used for Allah, cleverness may be fitna,

A distraction from one’s life goals, purpose or Salah.

~*~

Smartness doesn’t just describe thinkers with high IQ,

Who speak so eloquently, win debates, or act shrewd,

Who earned doctorate degrees or type faster than you,

But the truly wise serve Allah, know Islam is true,

Prepare for death and Jannah through good deeds they can do.

~*~

There’s no use in knowing myriad words and languages

Nor mastering at art, science or mathematics,

If one is unaware of Islam’s rules and basics.

To gain success in both worlds, seek authentic knowledge

Of Islam. Time spent on learning is never wasted.

~*~

Intelligence is manifest in souls who study

More about the Deen and Sunnah with sincerity,

Applying what one has studied for Allah Only.

In spite of committing errors occasionally,

Being Muslim inspires one to repent frequently.

~*~

Be smart enough to recognize truth, reality,

And distinguish what lasts long from what’s temporary,

So your efforts are meant to please Allah sincerely,

Indifferent to low standards of society,

Intelligently striving to earn Jannah’s entry.

~*~

📖 Ibn Umar RadhiAllahu ‘anhuma narrated: A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, which of the believers is the best?” The Messenger of Allah SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “Those with the best character.” The man said, “Which of the believers is the wisest?” The Prophet SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “Those who remember death often and have best prepared for it with good deeds; those are the wisest.”

💌 At times in this dunya, you’ll meet some people who loathe

And resent you instantly even though they don’t know

Your history, background, what makes you tick, laugh and grow.

These are souls whom Allah didn’t choose to get along.

~•~

To some foes, you’re not good enough; to others, too much.

Some haters’ indifference stems from feeling jealous,

Others’ grudges form when they fear you’re too religious,

Or how you seem on the outside makes them suspicious.

~•~

It’s not your fault if you’re disliked by certain people.

You were born to serve Allah, not to be likable

By Allah’s servants who got their own flaws and struggles.

For how they treat you and others they’re accountable.

~•~

It’s normal to not like someone who differs from you,

Whose bad vibes or motives clash with your good attitude,

And who envies your life because they’re too insecure.

Don’t let their sadness cause your inner peace to reduce.

~•~

Know that Allah’s Prophets had enemies of their own.

So avoid self-doubt when ex-friends want you left alone.

We still have Allah Who knows us before we were born,

And to Allah we’ll return, in Jannah our true home.

~•~

💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

💌 The Sahabas RadhiAllahu ‘anhum and salaf (pious predecessors) loved the noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam more than us yet there is no evidence of them having celebrated the Prophet Muhammad’s “birthday”. Our love for Allah’s Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam is proven by striving to follow his Sunnah, not by committing bid'ah and doing things which he SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam never ordered.

The similitude of somebody participating in festivities to celebrate the so-called “mawlid an-nabi” is that of a person who scribbles “I love you” messages around your face with a permanent marker of your most hated color. It simply doesn’t make sense for a lover to admire their loved one while carrying out acts which the latter finds offensive, disrespectful or disagreeable.

To prove that we truly love the Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam, we should try our best for Allah’s sake to do as many Sunnah good deeds as we can, such as: Praying two Sunnah Rak'ahs of Tahiyyat Al-Masjid before sitting in the Masjid, fasting regularly every other Monday and Thursday, fasting on the 13th, 14th and 15th of each month if one has the capability to do so, brushing our teeth before praying, sitting while drinking, ensuring that we eat and drink only with the right hand, saying “Alhamdulillah” when we sneeze, patting the heads of orphans and being compassionate with children, giving and receiving things with the right hand, distributing items and beginning actions from the right side, frequently praying Tahajjud Qiyaam Al-Layl and Salat Ad-Duha, reciting Surah Al-Kahf every Friday etc.

💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

💌 Note to self, dear Muslim, be grateful for Allah’s gifts.

Accept what Allah gave you, don’t question what He gives,

Do not compare your exams to other Muslims’ tests,

And know that dunya wasn’t designed to be perfect.

~•~

It’s okay if you have few furnishings and blankets,

With meals that are simple, light and often repeated.

It’s fine if you can’t buy stuff and clothes which are branded,

Since worldly things will be left behind when we’re buried.

~•~

Three outfits are enough if you’re blessed with gratitude.

With contentment you can survive with minimal food.

Why stress over designer labels, jewels and shoes,

When in your grave material items won’t follow you.

~•~

If ever the spoiled mock you, and call you “sad” or “poor”,

Stand firm, not affected, maintain patient attitude,

With a mindset that believes “I’m not wealthy, that’s true,

I don’t own anything in this world, not even you.”

~•~

Alhamdulillah, be thankful for what Allah chose

To grant you, from tools you can use to improve your soul.

Be ready with good deeds for Allah Most Merciful

And strive so Jannatul Ferdaus is our lasting home.

💌 When asked “How are you?”, “Alhamdulillah,” I’d respond.

Praise be to Allah, the Only One Who understands,

Who sees every situation, knows my condition,

And Who’s always with me - so Allah deserves my thanks.

~*~

Behind each “Alhamdulillah, I’m okay,” statement

Are untold stories of patience and sweet contentment,

A heart that may be broken, cries that are unspoken,

And concealed tears that flow through Du'a/supplication.

~*~

Although I’ve sinned, Alhamdulillah there’s repentance.

Indeed Allah is the Most Kind and Most Forgiving.

Though not so rich, I’m content with what Allah destined.

There’s wisdom in all that Allah decrees to happen.

~*~

Even if I’ve lost some loved ones and gained some ex-friends,

Alhamdulillah for Allah’s Mercy and Guidance,

For guiding me to depend on no one except Him,

And for saving me from those who are bad influence.

~*~

Alhamdulillah, even if I wish to complain

And whine about individuals who lie and betray,

I thank Allah that I’m not like them in any way.

Through haters I’ve learned to stay patient for Allah’s sake.

~*~

While each night and day can be a battle or challenge,

Full of trials that have my faith/Imaan examined,

Alhamdulillah, I have Allah Who can strengthen

And guide me to Him when He hears my supplications.

~*~

Alhamdulillah when I’m happy, stressed, or crying.

All Praise and thanks belong to Allah the Most Loving,

Who granted me not all my wants but my requirements,

Who truly understands my words and silent moments.

💌 It is unreasonable to claim that you love a person and expect them to love you back when you purposely do the opposite of what they like or you refuse to take their commands seriously. Placing hashtags with certain catchphrases in social media posts and boycotting products from a particular country where Islamophobic acts are widespread do not suffice as proofs of your love for the noble Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. 

Some testify they love the Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam yet when his blessed name is mentioned they don’t bother demonstrating respect by saying “SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam” audibly. Others carry out actions which the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam warned against or never introduced, such as: 

🚫 Celebrating birthdays, announcing “Eid Milad” to make birthday celebrations sound “halal”, intentionally delaying the obligatory prayers on a regular basis, decorating one’s walls with gigantic portraits of people or owning furnishings with images of living beings, drinking and eating with one’s left hand, neglecting the Sunnah etiquettes of entering the Masjid and not praying two Rak'ahs of Tahiyyat Al-Masjid before sitting, conducting extravagant weddings, forcing girls to marry whom they aren’t interested in marrying and then preventing them from being wed to the pious Muslim they’re in love with because of a “cultural” difference, feeling “shy” to wear Islamic clothes in front of non-Muslim acquaintances, partaking in sinful talks including backbiting, uploading selfies which gradually leads to toxic narcissism, ignoring salaams on purpose, and attending festivities of non-Muslims such as Halloween, V-day, and Xmas.

🌻 To be among those whom Allah the Almighty and His noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi love, try to make effort in copying the way he SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam lived his life - grateful to Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala so he remembered Allah a lot, patient during difficult moments, contented with a simple lifestyle, modest while generous whenever he could do charity, and treating people with a balanced combination of kindness and justice.

📖 Abu Huraira RadhiAllahu 'anhu narrated: The Messenger of Allah SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam came to a graveyard and he said, “Peace be upon you, the abode of a people who had faith. We, if Allah wills, will join you. I love to see our brothers.” They said, “Are we not your brothers, O Messenger of Allah?” The Prophet SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “You are my companions, but our brothers are those who have yet to come (in the future, those who steadfastly support the beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam without seeing him yet).” They said, “O Messenger of Allah, how will you recognize those people from your nation who have not yet been born?” The Prophet SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “Suppose a man had horses with white blazes on their foreheads and legs, among horses that are all black. Tell me, would he not recognize his own horses?” They said, “Of course.” The Prophet SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “They will come with radiant faces, arms, and legs due to the traces of ablution. I will arrive at the fountain (Al-Kawthar) before them. Some people will be driven away from my fountain, just as a stray camel is driven away. I will call out: 'Come! Come!’ But then it will be said to me: 'These people changed themselves (went astray committing acts of bid'ah) after you’, and I will say: 'Be off! Be off!

 💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


💌 Why I love the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam:

If you ask me, why do I love him, the Prophet Muhammad May Peace be upon him -

I love him because he cared about us Muslims, 

and loving him is a condition.

~•~ 

If you love Allah, then love the Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) – 

Allah loved him very much.

He was Allah’s Final Messenger, and 

The hearts of many did his mercy touch. 

~•~

His beautiful character makes me admire him – 

His trustworthiness and honesty – 

Even before he became Allah’s Prophet,

He was known by many disbelievers to be trustworthy.

~•~

I love the Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) because 

In good manners he set the best example. 

I love how he was patient throughout his life,

And how his morals were never skeptical. 

~•~

He (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) cared a lot about his nation, thus he taught us 

What we should know about our religion. 

When given the chance he’d always educate,

Blessing us with advice through his companions. 

~•~

As a father and grandfather, the Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) was kind and tender loving. 

His mercy to the poor, widows and orphans – 

His good treatment of Allah’s servants is too astounding. 

~•~

His tolerance, even to non-Muslim Neighbors, is also something to be admired. 

His mercy too was further manifest 

Through his kind treatment of the slaves he hired. 

~•~

As a leader – he was charismatic,

As a warrior – marked with strength and bravery, 

As a family man – full of mercy, 

And a husband who treated his wives fairly – 

~•~

As a friend – he (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) was accommodating – 

Full of cheer, he brought smiles to people’s faces –

Respectful to the old, and kind towards the young –

Mercy was the Prophet Muhammad’s basis. 

~•~

I love how he (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) was merciful – and because 

Of his mercy, he always tried to guide.

I love how he struggled to obey Allah, 

And how he remained patient all through his life.

~•~

I love how he (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) was able to do so much – 

So many good deeds, despite his simple life –

How he could survive on mere dates and water, 

And yet stand for long hours when praying at night.

~•~

I love how he (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) was so thankful to Allah –

How he was always ready to sacrifice. 

I love how his character was dignified – 

How he (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) was strong and gentle at the same time. 

~•~

I love the patience of Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam)

– In worshipping Allah, in fasting, and praying –

His patience in helping Muslims, and in hard times, And how he was merciful and forgiving. 


~•~

Because of my love for the Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam),

I try to follow him – and say “you should too" 

– If you truly love Allah, then love Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) –

Let your adherence to his Sunnah prove that your love is true. 


~•~

O’ Allah, help us obey You, and help us Follow Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) –

in this world and to Jannah/Heaven – 

Grant us his companionship in Paradise, 

And allow us to drink from Al-Kawthar - his blessed fountain. Ameen. 

~•~

💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

💌 Among Allah’s slaves are souls who rise regularly

In the last third of every night, when most are asleep.

While many dance in night clubs and others prefer sleep,

These armies of tough believers stand to pray and weep,

Praying to Allah for His Guidance, Love and Mercy.

~*~

Strong enough to surrender their beds and joys worldly,

They stay awake at nocturnal hours to obtain peace

In supplicating to Allah for their wants and needs,

Begging Him to forgive their wrongs and ease their worries,

Asking Allah to fix their affairs and destiny.

~*~

Their love for Allah outweighs love for their families,

Aware we’re under the care of Allah Almighty.

They pray Qiyaam Al-Layl not in Ramadan only,

But now and then they perform Tahajjud frequently.

With each Dhikr and Sujood they gain tranquility.

~*~

To them, complete inner happiness can be achieved

By doing plenty of good deeds with sincerity,

One of which is praying Tahajjud habitually,

Talking to Allah Who always listens, hears and sees.

Allah is the One Who provides wisdom and relief.

~*~

These groups of steadfast Muslims who strive so patiently

Differ from those who just do what’s obligatory.

Their tests are not the same, their patience level varies,

And those who favor Jannah avoid much luxury.

They’re Allah’s allies who  get enriched through piety.

~*~

📖 Abu Huraira RadhiAllahu ‘anhu narrated: Allah’s noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, 'Our Rabb (Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) descends to the lowest Heaven in the last third of every night, and He Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala says: “Who is calling upon Me, so that I may answer him? Who is asking from Me, so that I may give him? Who is seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?”’

💌 The tendency to gossip shows one is insecure,

Trying to downplay others to feel more reassured,

Talking badly about people without solid proof,

To lessen self-hate and so their hurt selves can be soothed.

~*~

I don’t get why some “adults” highlight they’re immature

Each time they vocalize thoughts that aren’t true or pure.

Why make one’s discourse a platform for verbal abuse,

When one can discuss issues of notable value?

~*~

Share tips on how to be worthy of Jannah’s entry,

Instead of laughing at people for how they appear.

Be among the kind souls who advise, inspire and cheer.

Remind yourself: Allah sees all and He always hears.

~*~

Choose words that brighten, not ones which cause scowls to appear.

Talk about topics that improve lives and make things clear,

Rather than backbiting which make rewards disappear.

Speak when necessary. Ditch statements which bring forth tears.

~*~

There’s no fun in speaking if speech turns to felony,

And if chatting invites one to gain people’s misdeeds.

To walk away from toxic meetings allow me please.

Don’t take offense if my choice is to ignore or leave.

~*~

Though I can form snide remarks after snarky comments,

Or formulate random jokes to hear people laughing,

I decide to save my good deeds and remain silent,

Aware that spreading rumors is haraam/forbidden.

~*~

It’s obvious that envious haters gossip often,

And gossipers backbite due to low self-confidence.

So have the strength to abandon the wrong group of friends.

No need for comrades who chill to fish for people’s sins.

~*~

📖 Abu Huraira RadhiAllahu ‘anhu narrated: Allah’s noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “Allah does not like for you to waste wealth, nor ask many unnecessary questions, nor spread gossip.”

💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

💌 Allah the Almighty loves those with good character,

Those believers who strive to maintain proper manners,

Who try their best to behave decently with others,

Striving to pass Allah’s tests with Sabr and Shukr.

~*~ 

Those blessed with fine conduct know when to be fair and kind,

So they’re not taken advantage of by the unkind.

Kindness doesn’t mean you give others gifts all the time,

But you treat them well, as you avoid gossip and lies.

~*~ 

If you have nothing nice to say, you remain quiet.

Good character inspires you to defend and protect,

Like a defender of the weak, bullied and oppressed.

With Akhlaaq, you’re not the type of friend who gets jealous.

~*~ 

Upon noticing someone’s flaws, you first check yourself,

Understand you’re not perfect, then advise them to help.

Your advice is one-on-one. You never mean to hurt.

Mistreating others only makes one’s self-hatred worse.

~*~ 

From good character is wanting others to succeed,

To thrive for Allah in both worlds, through faith and good deeds.

You enjoin right, forbid wrong, remind generously,

And welcome criticism to improve eagerly.

~*~ 

You dislike what Allah hates: Dhulm, rumors, backbiting,

Gossiping, kibr, laughing at others’ shortcomings,

Stealing, breaking promises without valid reasons,

Suspicion, and looking down on Allah’s creation.

~*~ 

From traits that Allah loves: Patience, courage for His sake,

Gentleness, gratitude, truth in what you do and say,

Mercy, not envying others for what Allah gave,

And knowledge that Allah is our Judge on Judgment Day.

~*~

💌 Since I believe that Allah blessed everyone fairly,

And as a Muslim I must accept Allah’s Decree,

I can’t get jealous of others’ joys which are worldly

Nor envy people for what they got and have received.

~*~

Even if I meet ladies much prettier than me,

Or see celebrities enjoy lives of luxury,

Or have friends who are more successful financially,

I still can’t afford to make my heart carry envy.

~*~

She can own all the make-up products and clothes she likes,

Collect many costly shoes and always be in style,

Earn a PhD degree and be highly admired,

And still I can’t make myself envy that kind of life.

~*~

This guy and that one too can claim I’m poor if they like,

While those women can snub me, backbite or criticize,

And still I won’t be fazed by their shallowness and lies;

Since my goal isn’t this world, but Jannah Paradise.

~*~

Honestly, I can’t bring myself to envy others

For what they’ve been given by Allah our Creator,

Who justly distributed His gifts and His favors,

And Who loves those who patiently accept His Qadr.

~*~

Should there be souls whom I admire, then strong believers

Whose hearts prefer Paradise to temporal pleasures,

Who memorized the Qur'an, obey Allah’s Orders,

And who find peace in Allah’s Love, Du'as and Dhikr.

~*~

Sincere souls who love Allah are those I look up to,

With hearts free from hate, jealousy and ingratitude.

No reason for me to resent what Allah gave you.

All blessings are meant to test our faith and gratitude.

~*~

📖 Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud RadhiAllahu ‘anhu narrated: Allah’s noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “There is no envy but in two cases: A man whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it rightly in Allah’s Way, and a man whom Allah has given wisdom and he acts upon it and teaches with it.”
