al zumar

قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ

 Say, O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.
—  [Surah Al-Zumar: 53]

Hardships that bring us closer to Allah are a blessing in disguise. Allah causes bad things to happen to good people, in order that a greater good come to them in the long run. And “Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning” [al-Zumar 39:10]
Allah has promised that if we are sincere in faith and do righteous good deeds, He will give us best of life in this world and reward accordingly in the hereafter.
“Whoever works righteousness — whether male or female — while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)” [al-Nahl 16:97]
We ask Allah to relieve your suffering or hardship you are going through and reward you abundantly for your patience. Ameen.

Sheikh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen made the following remarks:

[الصيام صبر على طاعة الله، وصبر عن محارم الله، وصبر على أقدار الله المؤلمة من الجوع والعطش وضعف البدن والنفس؛ فقد اجتمعت فيه أنواع الصبر الثلاثة، وتحقق أن يكون الصائم من الصابرين، وقد قال الله تعالى: {إنما يوفى الصابرون أجرهم بغير حساب} [الزمر:10].]

Fasting is exercising patience in the obedience of Allah, and it is also exercising patience against the prohibitions of Allah, and it is also exercising patience in the face of those painful things - such as hurt, thirst, weakness of body and soul - which Allah has ordained.

So all three types of “sabr” [steadfast patience] are combined in fasting, and so the fasting person becomes one of the “sabiroon”. And Allah has said:

[إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى الصَّابِرُونَ أَجْرَهُم بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ]

“Only those who are patient shall receive their rewards in full, without reckoning.” [al-Zumar 10]

[Majmoo’ Fataawaa wa Rasaa'il al-'Uthaymeen 20/200]

Guidance is in the Hand of Allah


Allah guides whomsoever He wills and sends astray whomsoever He wills. He has told us that He guides those who obey Him and turn to Him, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

وَالَّذِينَ اهْتَدَوْا زَادَهُمْ هُدًى وَآتَاهُمْ تَقْوَاهُمْ ﴿١٧﴾
“While as for those who accept guidance, He increases their guidance and bestows on them their piety.”
[Muhammad 47:17]

But whoever disobeys Allah and turns away from Him, Allah will not guide him, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

إِنَّ اللَّـهَ لَا يَهْدِي مَنْ هُوَ كَاذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ ﴿٣﴾
“Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever.”
[al-Zumar 39:3]

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

Allah said concerning fasting: “I shall reward him for it.” So he connected the reward for fasting to Himself, because the reward for righteous deeds is mentioned by number, and a good deed will be rewarded between ten and seven hundred fold, many times.But with regard to fasting, Allah connected the reward to Himself without specifying any number.

Allah is the most generous of those who are generous, and the gift reflects the generosity of the giver. So the reward of the one who fasts will be very great, without reckoning. Fasting is patience in obeying Allah, patience in keeping away from the things forbidden by Allah, and patience in bearing the decree of Allah, hunger, thirst, physical and mental weakness.

So it combines all three types of patience, thus the fasting person deserves to be counted as one of the patient, and Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning”

[al-Zumar 39:10]

Ibn Mas‘ūd (ra), ‘Uthman (ra), Tamīm al-Dārī (ra), ‘Urwah ®, Ibrāhīm al-Nakhaʿī ®, and others would all complete reciting the Quran every seven days. This also appears to be the general norm amidst many of the companions of the Messenger ﷺ. When I say this was the norm, I mean the norm outside of Ramadan. As for during Ramadan, they would recite the Quran even more!

They would divide up the Quran into seven parts as detailed here:

Day 1: Al-Baqarah, Āl ‘Imran, and Al-Nisā’.
Day 2: Al-Mā’idah, Al-An‘ām, Al-A‘rāf, Al-Anfāl, and Al-Tawbah.
Day 3: Yūnus, Hūd, Yūsuf, Al-Ra‘d, Ibrāhīm, Al-Ḥijr, and Al-Naḥl.
Day 4: Al-Isrā’, Al-Kahf, Maryam, Ṭāhā, Al-Anbiyā, Al-Ḥajj, Al-Mu’minūn, Al-Nūr, and Al-Furqān.
Day 5: Al-Shu‘arā’, Al-Naml, Al-Qaṣaṣ, Al-‘Ankabūt, Al-Rūm, Luqman, Al-Sajdah, Al-Aḥzāb, Saba’, Fāṭir, and Yasīn.
Day 6: Al-Ṣāffāt, Ṣād, Al-Zumar, Ghāfir, Fuṣṣilat, Al-Shūrā, Al-Zukhruf, Al-Dukhān, Al-Jāthiyah, Al-Aḥqāf, Al-Qitāl, Al-Fatḥ, and Al-Ḥujurāt.
Day 7: Al-Mufaṣṣal (Qāf-Nās)

Aws ibn Ḥudhaifah (ra) said: I asked the companions of the Messenger ﷺ: ❝How do you divide up the Quran?❞ They replied, ❝Three surahs, five surahs, seven surahs, nine surahs, eleven surahs, thirteen surahs, and then ḥizb al-Mufaṣṣal (Qāf-Nās).❞ [Abū Dāwūd]

We have about seven days left! Maybe you can practice this to help you complete the Quran during Ramadan if you haven’t already started.

whatever hardships Allah puts upon us is for our own good. At the time of difficulties, we tend to get closer to Allah which is good for us and is a blessing in disguise. Man in times of crisis gets closer to Allaah and starts repenting, while in times of ease and comfort he is far from remembering the blessings of Allaah and he uses these gifts and blessings in committing sin after sin.

Allah causes bad things to happen to good people, in order that a greater good come to them in the long run. And “Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning” [al-Zumar 39:10]

anonymous asked:

remember that Allah never stops from forgiving and He will always forgive :

Say: O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Sûrah al-Zumar: 53]

ii pray that you see him again inshaAllah & that Allah gives us all this chance one day ♡

The one who repents from sin is like the one who did not sin - Ibn al-Qayyim

The wisdom of Allah, which is based on justice and grace, dictates that the one who repents from sin is like the one who did not sin. Allah, may He be glorified, has guaranteed the one who repents from shirk, murder and zina that he will replace his bad deeds with good deeds. This is a general ruling that applies to everyone who repents from sin.

Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Say: O ‘Ibaadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft‑Forgiving, Most Merciful” [al-Zumar 39:53]

No sin is excluded from this general meaning, but this applies only to those who repent.

Source: al-Jawaab al-Kaafi, 1/116

وَأَنِيبُوا إِلَى رَبِّكُمْ وَأَسْلِمُوا لَهُ 
And turn in repentance and in obedience with true Faith to your Lord and submit to Him
—  [al-Zumar 39:54]

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Verily, Allaah forgives all sins”

[Surah Al-Zumar :Ayah 53] i.e., for the one who repents.

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“The one who repents from sin is like one who did not sin at all.”

Narrated by Ibn Maajah, 4250; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah .

The door of repentance is open to everyone; none complains of its narrowness other than the deprived:


“Do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins.” [Al-Zumar 39:53]
