How beautiful is
The journey of Salah:
When you fall to your lowest 
You draw closest to Allah (96:19).
So fall in your sujood and cry,
As you praise your Lord the Most High.


The servant is nearest to his Lord during prostration, so increase your supplications therein.
 -Prophet Muhammad (saww) [Sahih Muslim]

If a praying person knew to what extent he was surrounded by Allah’s Mercy, he would never raise his head from Prostration.
-Imam Ali (as) [Tasnif al-Ghurar al-Hikam]

“The sweat on your forehead as you walk to Dhuhr is greater than your tears in Taraweeh, for the first is mandatory and the second is commendable. It’s a scam to sleep through Dhuhr or Asr in Ramadan, then exhaust yourself in Taraweeh and Tahajjud prayers.

These are all signs that the outwardly appearances have hijacked our lives. Be Careful. Remember. A single obligation is superior to standing at night for all of Ramadan.“ 

- Shaykh Shinqeeti حفظه الله

“Just because it seems as if a door is not opening when you’re asking of Allah, just remember; the mere thought of you asking means that the door is open.”

-Shaykh Hamza Yusuf

Guys please stay vigilant when outside especially if you are around the east london area, there have been an increase in acid attacks on innocent people. It seems that the perpetrators are directly targeting Muslims, if you are driving please try not to open your window especially if you see someone knocking on your window. Stay safe.

لَيْسَ مِنَّا مَنْ لَمْ يُحَاسِبْ نَفْسَهُ فِي كُلِّ يَوْمٍ

The one who does not take account of himself every single day is not one of us

—  Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (as) [Bihar Al-Anwar, vol 67, p 72]

Even if it is just a couple of ayats from the Qur'an, read them everyday. It’s all about consistency and Allah loves those who are consistent.

I don’t care what car he drives, if he can even afford a car, I dont care what job he has and how much he makes, I don’t care who his family is, and where they came from…I just don’t. What am I supposed to do with that? I would walk miles barefoot with a man who’s religious, over sitting in a comfortable car with a man who’s not. I’d sleep on the floor with a man who’s God fearing over sleeping in a big comfy bed with a man who isn’t. I can sacrifice and compromise easily with someone who has a strong imaan. I can fall in love easily with someone who I know loves Allah more than they will ever love me.

Please do me a favor and don’t compliment me on my Deen. Wallahi it does more harm than good
