Atheism is the concept that preserves equality. My atheism allows me to see the whole world as equal. Whether you are a non-believer like me, or you are a believer and have your own ways, we are all equal. We are all human. Your beliefs or my lack of beliefs do not make any one of us morally superior, nor do they lead either one of us to a better or worse place after we die. We are all human and atheism allows me to be more progressive and inclusive. Atheism allows me to take the time to understand other humans, and see no difference in others regardless of their beliefs. Because at the end of the day, neither one of us is “doomed”, we each find the path that works for us. For you it is perhaps belief in a higher power, for me it is the tranquil and empowering belief in myself.

What Should You Do If Your Family Doesn’t Support What You Believe In?

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

Question: What should you do if part of your family is different religion and they don’t support what you believe in? But you still care for them and you want to be around them? Being around family that doesn’t believe hurts the family that does believe.

The Holy Ones, they went through what you are going through. They believe in something and the whole family does not believe in it. What do you do then? What is it that you want? You want them to believe? Allah is going to make them to believe. He is the turner of hearts. Not you. Not me. Not anyone. You are living with them, they are your father, they are your mother, you respect them but they don’t believe the way that you believe. It’s okay. Lakum Dinukum Waliyadin – to you your religion, to me mine. This is what Allah is saying in the Quran.

Are they respecting you and loving you despite your belief? Yes, they are. Then you should find some common ground. Don’t find conflict. Find common ground and stay on those common grounds and live properly. If they don’t believe in what you are believing in,  and you are the one who’s always bringing up what you believe and they don’t believe in it, pull that away. Find common ground and live. Because they are part of your family. You have more things that are common than things that are different. They love you, they respect you, it is obligation in Islam to love and to respect them. We cannot force anyone. And in Islam, especially in Tarikat, forcing doesn’t mean pushing down, it doesn’t mean pushy too. It means, to do something, to say something without permission. That is already badedep. Meaning, you have to ask permission. To enter into a house you have to ask permission. You cannot just enter. To enter into a room that belongs to someone else, Islam is saying, it is forbidden for you to enter until you ask permission.

من أيقن بالخلف جاد بالعطيَّة

Whoever has complete faith that Allah will replace everything he gives away with something better (in this life or the next), will increase in giving away his wealth.

The danger in living between obedience and sin is that you don’t know in which state you will die.

Ask forgiveness of Allah by Shaikh Dr. ‘Abdur-Razaq al-badr  حفظه الله

Allaah, the Most High, in encouragement of seeking forgiveness, and in making clear its excellence and its fruits both in this worldly life and in the Hereafter, refer to what Nūh عليه السلام‎ said:

“I 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.’ ” [Surah 71; Verses 10-12]

This tremendous āyah promises numerous benefits and offers important lessons for those who seek forgiveness and for those who constantly ask forgiveness for their sins.

It is related that a man came to al-Hasan al-Basrī رحمه الله‎ , the noble Taabi'ee, and complained to him of poverty. So he said to him,

“Ask forgiveness of Allāh”.

Another man came to him complaining that he did not have any children. So he said to him,

“Ask forgiveness of Allāh”.

A third man came to him complaining of the barrenness of his garden. So he said to him,

“Ask forgiveness of Allāh”.

He then recited to them the saying of Allāh, the Perfect and Most High:

“I 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.’ ” [Surah 71; Verses 10-12]

These then are some of the fruits of seeking forgiveness and some of its benefits in the worldly life.
