Without Allah

Without Alllah
Without Allah I could not foresee 

The things of this world that I would face

Its pains, 

It’s woes the tears and fears 

The darkest days replaced with light 

The peace he gives me Every day, 

The hope 

The joy 

When I know he’s near 

He’ll never say, 

I have no time 

To listen to this child of mine 

Without Allah,

My prayers to hear 

Rewards are great when he is near 

He’ll never leave me night or day 

He’s in my heart, 

He’s there to stay 

No one can ever take this place 

He knows your name 

As he knows mine, 

This Allah of mine 

Can be yours today just ask him into your heart today.

Pray to Allah to guide your way to the straight path.

Low Imaan? Don’t Get Discouraged

Low Imaan? Don’t Get Discouraged

Don’t get discouraged if your imaan (your faith) is low sometimes. You are not a lost case. Imaan is organic and can be cultivated. Just as a tree needs sunshine, water and good soil; imaan needs salat (prayer), dua’ (asking Allah), sawm (fasting), dhikr (remembrance of Allah), sadaqah (charity), Quran recitation, contemplation of Allah’s signs and blessings, and the company of good people and mu’mineen.

Authentic Islamic knowledge is also important. The more you increase your knowledge, the more you understand the depth of Laa ilaha il-Allah. The more you study, the more you are awed by the Majesty of Allah; the more you appreciate the beauty of Islam and its completeness, the more your mind feels certain, and your heart feels assured, and your soul feels peace. All of this leads to taqwa (Allah-consciousness) and increased imaan.

You don’t have to change your life in one day, or adopt all these behaviors at once. Try to implement them in your life one at a time.

When the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) sent Mu’adh ibn Jabal to the people of Yemen to teach them about Islam, he said, “O Muadh! You are going to a community who are of the People of the Book. So, first invite them to bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. If they accept this, then inform them that Allah makes five prayers in a day and night obligatory for them. If they accept this, then inform them that Allah makes charity (i.e., Zakat) obligatory for them. (It is) to be taken from their rich and given to their poor.” [Bukhari]

You can start the same way. Keep Laa ilaha il-Allah on your tongue all the time, and start doing your salat. You will feel the difference in your imaan right away, as it takes root and grows.

Of course avoiding sins and making tawbah (repentance) for past sins is part of the formula too, but don’t despair if you are still committing sins. Start doing the behaviors of imaan..

Depressed Ranting of a overly tired mind

Everyday is a struggle but some how I get through it. Alhamdulilah if it wasn’t for the Merciful that Allah bestowed upon me, my reading, my deen, I would be back in the darkness of my thoughts. Today I am a little bit depressed, maybe it’s hormonal, maybe it’s the awkward silence that my husband and I are experiencing , He talks to everyone but me. I am in the mind-fog of depression. The depressed mind doesn’t always recognize things as they are. Everything feels like it is a huge chore I am crabby and irritated, easily annoyed and short tempered in I will yell at the drop of a hat , why must I always deal with depression it is like being lost in a thick fog it makes everything distorted and it is hard to find your way out of the fog.

I have been beyond blue for a long time it is a daily struggle living with depression , my doctors say bipolar NOS but I rarely swing into mania mostly it is depression with periods that are hypo-manic so basically I get into moods were I plan stuff like sewing projects and start them yet never finish them or my favorite I clean things weird things I am sure no one else cares if are ever cleaned, another thing is I am having a lot of trouble sleeping it doesn’t help that in the neighborhood there are several dogs that bark at random  and never seem to shut up then there are the babies who wake and fuss then on top of that I have to pee like every five minutes and there is only one bathroom upstairs . I just feel defeated when fighting depression so far nothing has worked or even seemed to help it is like I am walking around wrapped in a thick gray fog that no one else can see but me .

Having depression is like having a invisible wound that just will not heal , to explain it so a non depressed mind will understand the closest I can come is to use a stubbed toe as a example you stub you toe it hurts and is bloody you take care of said toe and it is almost healed when again it gets hurts and the cycle just keeps repeating over and over that is how depression is there is always going to be a cycle of feeling blue and lower than dirt to depressed to even brush your teeth , hair or take care of yourself some people get stuck in that and never get out others learn how to mange somewhat normal looking lives while hiding how they truly feel . I do not know why some people are given depression , bipolar and other invisible illnesses to deal with , but  Allah never gives a person more than he or she can bear .allah does notdon't be sad

 

Dua : a poem and a prayer

 
 
Please take a moment to relax your mind and humble
your heart to focus on
ALLAH (Almighty GOD). Allow Allah, to occupy your
mind while you read this
DUA.If we can
take the time to read long jokes, stories, etc.,we
should give the same
respect to this DUA (Prayer). Friends that pray
together, stay together.
Let’s pray…
 
OH ALLAH, I thank You for this day. I thank You for
my being able to see and
to hear this morning.I’m blessed because You are
forgiving and understanding
Oh Allah. You have done so much for me & You keep on
blessing me. Forgive me
this day for everything I have done, said or thought
that was not pleasing
to you. I ask YOU now for Your forgiveness. Please
keep me safe from all
danger and harm.
Help me to start this day with a new attitude and
plenty of gratitude. Let
me make the best of each and every day to clear my
mind so that I can hear
from You. Please broaden my mind that I can accept
all things. Let me not
whine and whimper over things I have no control
over.
 
Let me continue to see sin through YOUR eyes and
acknowledge it as evil. And
when I sin, let me repent,and receive YOUR
forgiveness. And when this world
closes in on me, let me remember YOU – to slip away
and find a quiet place
to make DUA. It’s the best response when I’m pushed
beyond my limits. I know
that when I can’t make DUA, You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to
bless me that I may be a
blessing to others.
 
Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Keep me
uplifted that I may have
words of encouragement for others.
I make DUA for those that are lost and can’t find
their way. I make DUA for
those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I make
DUA for those who don’t
know You intimately. I make DUA for those that will
delete this without
sharing it with others. I make DUA for those that
don’t believe. But I thank
you that I believe.
 
I believe that Allah changes people and Allah
changes things. I make DUA for
all my sisters and brothers. For each and every
family member in their
households. I make DUA for peace, love and joy in
their homes that they are
out of debt and all their needs are met.
 
I make DUA that every eye that reads this knows
there is no problem,
circumstance, or situation greater than Allah. Every
Battle is in your hands
for You to fight. I make DUA that these words be
received into the hearts of
every eye that sees them and every mouth that
confesses them willingly. This
is my DUA. Amen.



On That Day

As salaam alikum

And on that Day when the mountains will move

And the earth will shake with a violent shaking

And no one will be concerned about their fathers or mothers their

children or spouse

And on that Day when the Trumpet will be blown twice

And mankind will appear drunk out of fear of his Lord

And on that Day when eyes will swell up with tears

When the book of deeds will be laid open

And you will see all that you have done in this life

of good and evil and it will be written in numbers

Because you worship a Lord that does not forget!

And on that Day when the whole of earth will die and then be

resurrected so that Judgement may began

And on that day when sweat will pour

out of fear from your Lord

And the heavens will be opened and you shall come unto your Lord in

crowds!

And on that Day the body parts will speak for you regarding your

deeds! You will not be able to speak as to defend yourself

Your legs, private parts, eyes, ears, mouth will all testify against

you!

Allahu Must’an!

And you will hope that those people you have wronged, will forgive you

And you will hope that your repentance will be accepted from your

Lord

And you will hope that your soul will be saved from the fire!

And on that Day your Lord will be just

And He will remind you of what your hands put forth in this life

And on that Day there will be no time,

So on that Great day, you will surely come to know…..

Dear Allah , Help me Understand and Have Patience

Dear Allah,

Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim

I am writing this to get all the jumbled words and stuff floating around down on paper so to speak , inshaallah it helps clear and quite my mind.don't be sad

I am struggling and  I feel alone I try and I try to fight this depression it seems never ending like everything is all painted in shades of greys ,blacks and muted dull colors .

I can’t sleep well some nights I don’t even sleep I just lay awake and the tears slide down my face and I don’t even know why I am crying .

I have head aches daily and back pain along with hip pain and neck pain home remedies don’t seem to help and so far the doctors haven’t helped much either 

I know that I have no reason to be depressed it is like my brain is broken and stuck in the depressed mode and I am not sure how to snap out of it , nothing I have tried seems to work , I am either allergic to the medication or it has unwanted side effects or cause other problems so I don’t take the medication .

I pray 5 times a day and some days I even struggle just to pray , I know you already know this and you know everything even stuff I do not know about. I struggle to read the Quran please help me be able to read it more and to understand it , and not get lost and fall off the straight path.

Will I always feel this way?

Will I always feel like I am struggling to do my prayers? When will it feel easier and not like a chore ? I love Islam and prayers it is just so hard some days , my mind endless seems to wonder off or I get lost mid prayer or forget how many rakats I have done some days are just so frustrating when will it not feel this way? When will I feel like a good muslimah?

I feel like I am isolated and alone even when I am surrounded by family and friends why do I feel like this? Will I always feel like this ? I feel rootless like a tumbleweed blowing in the wind like I am in one place the get blown to another place where is my home?

When will I understand enough Arabic and be able to speak it clearly and not feel self conscious when talking to people?

When will the colors come back ?

Is my outlook to always feel and look depressed? Is there any hope for not being depressed?Can you show me the way out of the depression?

Will I always cry and not even know the reason why I am crying ? Is the crying a good thing? does it help me , I am trying to understand and be patience ,I am trying to be happy I am thankful for healthy children and healthy family who help out .

Will sleep always be a struggle?

Allah Most merciful one I promise that I will never give up I will fight to do prayers and learn more will keep trying to learn Arabic and keep trying to read and understand all of the Quran! I will never stop  fighting the depressed feelings I will not give up this is my promise to you , I am your humble muslimahmuslimah praying
