The Secret of Honey |
One day, Sayyidinā Rasūluᵓllāh ﷺ saw a bee and asked it how honey is made. The bee replied that they fly out to gardens and collect pollen and nectar from the flowers in their mouths, and then fly back to the hive and release it, and that makes honey.
Sayyidinā Rasūluᵓllāh ﷺ then said to the bee, “But the nectars have different tastes… some are bitter and others can be sour. But how do these become sweet?”
The bee replied, “Allāh ﷻ has taught us to recite ṣalawāt upon you after we collect the nectar, until we reach our hive. The sweetness of the honey is the blessing of the ṣalawāt we recite upon you that turns something so bitter into such sweetness.”
—al-Mathnāwī | Shaykh Jalāl ad-Dīn Rūmī
إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا
“Indeed, Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet. O you who believe! Send your blessings on him, and salute him with a worthy salutation.” - Quran [33:56]
“There is not one of you who sends his greetings upon me except that Allāh returns the soul to my body and I return his greeting.” [Abu Dawood]
Whoever supplicates Allāh to exalt my mention, Allāh will exalt his mention ten times and remove from him ten sins and raise him ten degrees.” [Muslim]
اللّهُمّ صَلّ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ وَبَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ
(O Allah, bless Muhammad (saw) and the Household of Muhammad (saw). And send blessings upon Muhammad (saw) and the Household of Muhammad (saw)).
The Prophet ﷺ is not just the door to Allāh; he’s the key, the keyhole, the hinges, the window, the knocker…he is everything.
O Allāh, shower blessings of peace and mercy on our master and chief - Muḥammad, the best of creation, and his family, with every glance and every breath, as many times as the number of all things that are encompassed within Your Majesty.
I had no special plans for today, but on my drive home I remembered that today was Lady Zahra (Sa)’s birthday, so decided to stop by a bakery, get a birthday cake, then picked up some flowers and went home.
I walked towards my Mom and Grandma and kissed on their hands and cheeks, and handed them the flowers. The expression on their faces was priceless— quite surprised they seemed. :D
We all gathered around, the men congratulated the ladies of the house. Then we started taking pictures and the sound of our laughter was echoing in the entire room—I can say everyone’s mood was boosted up!
I couldn’t believe my eyes tbh, that was indeed a precious moment :’)
And I’m just happy and content and can’t thank Him enough for giving me the opportunity to be able to do such little things for my family and make them happy.
Nevertheless, everyone loved the cake a lot- I bought it from a Turkish bakery near my uni haha.
Alhamdulillah x infinite.
So a great great congratulations to the Imam of our time (Aj) and the rest of the believers upon the birthday anniversary of Lady Zahra (As), the chief of the women of Paradise, earth and Ummah.
Happy Mother’s and Women’s day, everyone !

Some would say I’ve lost my mind.
As I sit here contemplating suicide.
My soul is singing because love is brimming inside
But my nafs is clinging to its identity
In my mind.
This world of ‘me’ is annoying me.
In fact I’m annoying me.
So I’m in talks with my soul and my body
To call a truce
And make a noose out of my ḏikr beads.
Hang me from the nearest tree
So that the Ḥamd that lives in me for He is free
Being with bodies makes me feel lonely
So I’ve come to the conclusion
That the only solution
Is no me –
Just flesh blood veins and meat
Hanging from a tree
My suicide note will read:
Allâhumma salli ‘alâ sayyidinâ Muhammadini-l
fâtihi limâ ughliq, wa-l khâtimi
limâ sabaq, nâsiri-l haqqi bi-l haqq, wa-l hâdi
ilâ sirâtika-l mustaqîm,
wa ‘alâ âlihi haqqa qadrihi wa miqdârihi-l azîm.
Death by Muḥammad’s Dīn
Allāh make me Muḥammadi
And the only reason why Allāh created me
Is to sing His praise like a canary
Every other utterance
I want to jump into the deepest sea
Be left for dead on the oceans bed
But please don’t look for me
Look for He who will roll
The heavens up like a scroll
When He’s ready.
And give me eternal life
When He’s ready.
By way of Aḥmad ﷺ
I push ṣalawāt between my tongue and teeth
Until the ṣalawāt becomes me
And I join the unseen
And all you see
Is a reflection of the Muḥammadan reality.
Where I used to be.
Salam alaykom, moemineen and moeminaat. I’d like to request us all to make duas for those in our Ummah who are suffering because of their love for Muhammad and Aale Muhammad (sallalaho alayhi wa aalehi wasalam). Those in every corner of the world who are victims of slandering, shaming, threats and disrespect. Ya Rab, please give them patience and strength to carry on being the devoted followers of our beloved Nabi and his purified family. Allahoma salli alla Mohammad wa Aale Mohammad. ❤
