And God gave me Opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted

My Prayer has been answered.

Al-Mujahid

Al-MujahidPeople look at him, not knowing him for who he really is.

His true soul invisible to all but Allah.

His deeds known to none but the One above.

By night when all have gone home

Does he clean the toilets and scrub the floors of the Masaajid.

By day does he work for his family with his hands

Halal money to feed Halal to the little mouths

Never does a person come to him and not go away in smiles.

Gentle and loving is he to the children as they run towards him Screaming in delight.

He shares the silence of the Fuqaraa’

And is no stranger to the troubles of the Yateem.

Unbeknownst to him, Allah said:

“I love my servant.”

And thereupon Jibrael called out to the mukhluqaat: “Love him”

And the mukhluqaat loves him.

Little does he know.

He held tightly to his Deen when it was

Like a piece of shining gold.

He held it even tighter when it became

Like a piece of burning hot coal.

At night does he fight sleep

And arises from his warm bed

In the midst of Tahajjud in tears

Does he call out unto hi Lord:

“Allahummar zuqni Shahadah!”

Defender of the Nisaa’

Protector of the oppressed

Supporter of the weak

Al-Imad alDeen

Guardian of the Quran

His heart has no space for nifaaq or riyaa

Jealousy or hate

He knows no hate or bias against any Believer anywhere.

He was present at Badr

Felling the Unbelieving criminals

Alongside the Rasulallah (saws)

At Uhud he stood his ground on the mountain

Raining arrows of death down on Khalid’s charge.

He was there at Mutah when the three commanders fell one by one

‘Till Saifullah led the Believers back to safety

He was there right next to his brother Al’Barra

In the Garden of Death as they fought the Liar’s army

To open the gates of that bloody oasis.

He was there with Sa’d as they crossed the river

To face the Persians across the vast expanse.

His heart was firm as the horses tread above the water.

Saying nothing but “Husbunallahu waNa’mal Wakeel”

He was there as Commander Tariq ordered the boats to be burned

Fighting the Disbelieving Goths fearlessly

And marched past the Pyrenees to establish the banner of Islam.

He was the first in the smoky pack as Bin Qasim and the others poured down

The mountain slopes, racing towards death with a smile on his face

He avenged his slain brethren at Hittin

For what the savage heathens did in 1099

And was there when Salahuddin opened the gates of Al-Quds.

Truly he was there on that rock

In the Valley of Ayn Jalut, yelling

“Wa Islamah! Wa Islamah! Ya Shababbul Islam!!”

As the Mameluke army smashed their way through the Mongol waves.

He was amongst the first to march out when the Muslimah was dishonored

She cried “Ya Mu’tasim where are you?!”

And soon the Greek city of Amouriah too, came under Muslim rule.

Aye, he was the one amongst the ghostly Jaanissar

As they raced up the tower alongside his mujahid brother Hasan Ulu Badi

Knowing that at the top they would meet their end under a killer rain of arrows

But he raised Al’Liwaa high after Hasan fell; his perfumed blood still marks the spot

And Sultan Fatih entered the city as the Victorious one.

He was present at Jaaji, Jalalabad, and Kabul

as the vodka drinking Russian khinzeer were thrown out of Afghanistan,

and Allah’s Sakinah descended from above.

He was there alongside his brother Zubayr al-Madani

as they fought in defense of Sarajevo airport

He stood firmly as the fighting grew fierce While others fled.

He rode with the shababb ul-Islam to detonate the Crusader army at Khobar

To clear al-Jazirah, true to the command of the Rasul (saws) as he lay on his deathbed

Indeed, Shababbul-Jannah, and not cowards as the Kuffar accuse

When his brother Jibrael Abu-Adam from Atlanta

Fell on the streets of Kashmir, he was there to avenge him

Sending a deadly force of lead bullets back at the filthy Hindu dogs.

He went to Grozny once again to teach the Russian pigs

What it means to mess with the best.

You tangle with the Mujahideen and off you go to that eternal-burning place

He held down the Kuffar as his brother Abu Maryam went to slay that Philippine dog.

Laughing his way through the blizzard of bullets, crying Allahu-Akbar, Allahu-Akbar, Allahu-Akbar.

He’ll return to Philistine once again, that Ancient Land Running to the Gate of Ludd,

To see none other than Ibn Maryam slay that Yahuudi Liar.

For each bullet he takes, he sends back dozen more.

With each kafir that he slays, he knows that

Another one of the Believing women will not be humiliated

Another one of his Muslim brothers will not be shot in front of his little ones.

Allah decides which bullet has his name on it

He feels it not at is goes deep into his flesh

As he falls, with that joyous smile on his face

“La Ilaha Ilallah muhammad arRasulallah! Allahu Akbar!

Look in the sky! Look what I can see! Allahu Akbar!”

Even before the first drop of that fresh blood falls

Allah with His Mercy wipes the slate clean

The angels bearing his soul straight to Al-Firdaus

His soul, like the inside of green birds,

Glides around the ‘Arsh as it pleases.

On that big Day, when his blood, still fresh

Smelling as sweet as the musk of Jannah,

Will flow from his wounds, badges of honor

That none will fail to recognize the warrior

On that Day, when he shall have no fear nor shall he grieve

A Day on which the Book in his Right hand shall be heavy

As the angels send their salutations

On the Day when the Hur al’Ayn give him the sweet drink

From Al-Kauthar with their own soft hands,

laughing and bursting with pleasure

Indeed, this and more is what he bargained for

As he sold the World for that which was better.

And on this day verily does he receive his Rank

“The Prophets, the Siddiqin, the Martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are!”[Quran 4 : 69]

Who is he?

He is the fighting spirit of Iman that is in all Mujahideen

He was, and is present, inside the hearts of all the Shuhadaa.

Last Breath 

Last Breath(Actually this is an album being

told by a man who is deing)
From those around,

I hear a cry,

A

mouthful sob,

A hopeless sigh.(that’s after death)

I hear footsteps

leaving slow, (after burrying)

& then I know my soul must fly.
A

chilly wind begins to blow,

Within my soul,

From head to toe, (at the

time of death)

& then, last breath,

escapes my lips,

Its time to

leave,

& I must go.

So it is true

(But it’s too late)

They say each

soul,

has its given date,

When it must leave

its body’s core

& meet

with its eternal face
OH! mark the words that I do say

Who knows?

tomorrow could be your day

At last it comes to heaven or hell (that is

our final adobe is heaven or hell and decide where you want to be, in

this world itself)

Decide whicw now do not delay

Come on O

brother,

Let’s pray,

Decide which now do not delay.

OH! GOD, OH!

GOD, I cannot see,

My eyes are blind, Am I still me?

Or has my soul

been led astray,

& forced to pay a pricelesss fee,
ALAS to dust we

all return,

Some shall rejoice (that is the good people will be in

heaven…)

while others burn(…while the badones will be burning in

the Hell)

If only I knew that before,

The line grew short

And came my

turn
And now as beneath the sod(earth)

They lay me (with my record

flawed)

They cry, not knowing, but I cry worse, (they are crying

unknowingly but I am crying b’coz I am going to face my GOD & they

didn’t know it)

For they go home &

I face my GOD,

OH! mark the

words that I do say,

Who knows? tomorrow could be your day

Atlast it

comes to Heaven or Hell

Decide which now do not delay,

Come on O

brother,

Let’s pray,

Decide which now do not delay.

Moving with Barakah

This is a great article with great advice and great resources

Ummbilal01

We are constantly in motion. Whether we are going to school or work or dropping the kids at school then going to work, running errands, shopping, going to the hospital or gym or just getting stuff done, we are moving.

With all these activities, we sometimes feel we are too busy to carry out acts of worship; whilst in reality, most of our chores can be a source of reward. All we need is to have the right intentions.

Narrated ‘Aisha (Radi Allah Anha): The Prophet (SAW) was asked,

“What deeds are loved most by Allah?” He said, “The most regular constant deeds even though they may be few.”

[Sahih Bukhari: Volume 8, Book 76, Number 472 & 470]

Before setting out of the house, start with the du’a for leaving the house.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ
Bismillahi tawakkaltu Allah lahwa la…

The Different Types Of Patience

The Different Types Of Patience
We constantly hear about patience in Islam. There are many verses and hadeeth which tell us to be patient. Many of us have grown up being told by our parents, elders, teachers and even friends that we need to be patient. For those that were patient they were told to be more patient. So whether or not we as a people were raised in Islam or not we were brought up on this word patient for the most part. The only thing missing was the fact that not to many of us had someone sit us down and explain to us what this patience its and how is it properly applied. Most of us are adults now, and we see that how patience is practiced changes depending on the situation.

The situation we want to talk about today is patience in Islam. We see that over and over Allah commands us with patience. Like where he commands {Seek aid though patience and prayer} (2:45). In the same Surah He commands the believers with {Oh you who believe, seek assistance though patience and and prayer…} (2:153). Now in order to carry out what we have been commanded with in terms of seeking assistance through patience we need to understand exactly how we do this.

Sheikh Zaid al Madkhali made this ever so clear in his explanation to the well known book The Three Fundamental Principles. This is what we wanted to share with you today. About this subject of patience the Sheikh said while explaining about those that call one another to patience that this patience must be in different things. Here is what the Sheikh explained;

This is patience in all of its types, which are;

 

The first type is patience upon Allah’s obedience. This means that the individual does that which Allah has commanded of him desiring Allah’s reward, and fearing his punishment for falling short.

 

The second type is patience upon the disobedience of Allah. So he stays away from Allah’s disobedience because of all of the danger that comes with it in this life, in the grave and in the here after. The previous nations (that Allah informed us of in His book) who came before were not destroyed except due to their disobedience. From them are those that Allah drowned. From them are those that were destroyed by natural disasters. As well, from there are those that the earth swallowed up. How ever they were destroyed, it was because of their disobedience to Allah. This is because Allah loves to be obeyed and not disobeyed. So we see that disobeying Him leads to His anger, displeasure and painful punishment. This makes clear that one of the types of patience is to be patient in terms of the disobedience of Allah. Again this means to stay away from disobeying Allah. If a person does fall into disobedience then they hurry and turn back to Allah in sincere repentance. They try their hardest to follow up a bad deeds with good deeds. Allah said in His book {Verily the good deeds wipe away the bad deeds} (11:114).

 

The third type of patience is the patience in Allah’s decree and his rule over his slaves. Nothing moves in the universe, nothing happens or come about except that Allah is the one that is in control of it. So there has to be patience. Patience is a must when dealing with things that effect us in ourselves, our children, our money or other then these things which are from the sunnah of Allah in the creation.You will find that the creation is tried with all types of afflictions. You see that this one is afflicted with poverty, that one with sickness, this one with worry etc. Nothing helps in these stiautions excpet patinece, and looking forward to the reward that will come from Allah. This is done by looking forward to the reward of the patient ones to whom Allah has given glad tidings to when He said, {And give glad tidings to the patient} (2:155). Also Allah said {Verliy the patient will be given their reward with no reconing} (39:10). Becasue of the great position patince holds we find that Allah advised the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessing be upon him) when He said to Him {and be patient, verily your patience is from none but Allah} (16:127). Allah taught Him that patience was from the characteristics of the Prophets {Be patient just like the Messengers of strong will} (46:35). As well, He praised the people of intellect in His statement {But it is only the men of understanding that pay heed. Those that fuflil their covenant with Allah and do not break it. Those who join the things that Allah has commanded that they be joined, the fear their Lord and a terible reconing} To the statement of Allah {And those that have patience seeking the face of their Lord.} (13:19-22).

So it is necessary to define patience by that type that is done for the purpose of seeing the face of Allah and the here after. The purpose of patience is not to be said about someone that he is of the people of patience and the likes. But rather what is meant is the type of patience that nothing is wanted by it other then the face of Allah. This is because it is from the best of the types of worship that must be practiced by the people of Islam, and Emaan and Ihsaan.

In conclustion we see here that the sheikh not only has cleared up for us what is meantby this patience that we have been commanded with, but also explained how we are supposed to carry this patience out in all aspects of our lives. May Allah make us of those that are patient and do all that we do solely for his sake. May He also make us of thosse that hear the truth and act accordingly. Allahuma ameen.
