‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said that Faatimah (upon whom be peace) came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and asked him for a servant. He said, “Shall I not tell you of something that is better for you than that? When you go to sleep, say ‘Subhaan Allaah’ thirty-three times, ‘Al-hamdu Lillah’ thirty-three times, and ‘Allaahu akbar’ thirty four times.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4943).

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud  (Radhi Allahu Anhu) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (Salla’Allaahu Alayhi wa Salam)  , said,

“Adultery and usury do not become widespread in a people except that there will descend upon themselves the punishment of Allah the Exalted.”

[Sahih Ibn Hibban, Number 4502, Sahih]


According to research by David B. Larson, of the American National Health Research Center, and his team, comparisons of devout and non-religious Americans have given very surprising results. For instance, religious people suffer 60% less heart disease than those with little or no religious belief, the suicide rate among them is 100% lower, they suffer

 far lower levels of high blood pressure, and this ratio is 7:1 among smokers.

It was reported in one study published in the International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine, an important scientific source in the world of medicine, that people who describe themselves as having no religious beliefs become ill more frequently and have shorter life spans. According to the results of the research, those with no beliefs are twice as likely to suffer stomach-intestine diseases than believers, and their mortality rate from respiratory diseases is 66% times higher than that of believers.
Secular psychologists tend to refer to similar figures as “psychological effects.” This means that belief raises peoples’ spirits, and this contributes to health. This explanation may indeed be reasonable, but a more striking conclusion emerges when the subject is examined. Belief in Allah is much stronger than any other psychological influence. The wide-ranging research into the connection between religious belief and physical health carried out by Dr. Herbert Benson of the Harvard Medical Faculty has produced surprising conclusions in this area. Despite not being a believer himself, Dr. Benson has concluded that worship and belief in Allah have a more positive effect on human health than that observed in anything else. Benson states that he has concluded that no belief provides as much mental peace as belief in Allah.

What is the reason for this connection between belief and the human soul and body? The conclusion reached by the secular researcher Benson is, in his own words, that the human body and mind are regulated to believe in Allah.

This fact, which the world of medicine has slowly begun to appreciate, is a secret revealed in the Qur'an in these words: “… Only in the remembrance of Allah can the heart find peace.” (Qur'an, 13:28) The reason why those who believe in Allah, who pray to and trust in Him, are psychologically and physically healthier is that they behave in accordance with the purpose of their creation. Philosophies and systems which contradict human creation always lead to pain and unhappiness.
Modern medicine is now tending towards the realization of this truth. As Patrick Glynn put it: “[S]cientific research in psychology over the past twenty-five years has demonstrated that,… religious belief is one of the most consistent correlates of overall mental health and happiness.”

Allaahu Akbar, beautiful creation of Allaah.  

“Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: “Can you see any rifts?” Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out.”

[ سورة الملك ]

Iblis said to Nooh : ‘There are five things that cause people to become destroyed’
‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (radhi Allaahu anhuma) said:

While on the Ark, [Prophet] Nooh (‘alayhis-salam) noticed an old man whom he did not recognise. Nooh inquired: ‘What brought you here?’ He replied: ‘I came to strike the hearts of your followers, so their hearts become with me, while their bodies with you.’ Nooh responded: ‘Leave O enemy of Allah.’

Iblis said: ‘There are five things that cause people to become destroyed (deviated). I will inform you of three and not of the other two’. It was revealed to Nooh that he needed not know the three, but that he should enquire about the two.”

Iblis said: ‘The two that are certain to work are: envy: I was cursed because of my envy, and became a stoned devil. And the second is eagerness (to have more) : The entire paradise was made permissible to Adam (‘alayhis-salam) . I got what I wanted from him because of his eagerness.’

Ibn Abee al-Dunya in Maka’d al-Shaytaan , 65/ 44.

What do I say when I sneeze and what do I say when someone else sneezes?

Assalamu Alaikum,

It was also reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If any one of you sneezes, let him say ‘Al-hamdu Lillaah,’ and let his brother or his companion say, ‘Yarhamuk Allaah.’ And if he says to him, ‘Yarhamuk Allaah,’ let him say, ‘Yahdeekum Allaahu wa yusliha baalakum (May Allaah guide you and correct your thinking).’” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 10/502)

May Allah guide us to the straight path.


Verily, there is nothing that is between the Heavens and the Earth that does not know that I am the Messenger of Allah, except for the disobedient Jinn and humans

So.. I realized opening a crochet etsy shop isn’t very convenient since crocheting takes quite sometime and it’s hard to get things done with a 4 month old. So I decided to do head wraps/bands instead. These ones are some of the ones I made for my little princess. They’re fun to make and don’t take much time. In shaa Allaah I have already started selling a few and I’m excited. It’s a good feeling to do something with your hobby and get rewarded for it. I’ve been needing to feel like I’m not wasting my life away, lol. So if anyone is interested do let me know. I don’t have an official shop yet but I’ve been selling locally and I love it. Feedback is very much appreciated! Baraka Allaahu feekum. 

Menses and Dhikr of Allaah & Recitation of the Qur'an - Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen

Menses and Dhikr of Allaah & Recitation of the Qur'an - Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen @AbdurRahmanOrg

Case: During Menses, it is not unlawful to celebrate Allah’s Praises (Saying Takbeer, Tasbeeh, and Tahmeed),[29] saying Bismillah before acting upon something (eating, drinking, etc..), reading Hadeeth, Islamic discussions, invocation upon Allah (Dua’), and listening to the recitation of Qur’an.

It has been confirmed by ‘Aisha (radhi Allaahu anha) that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to:…

“...gaining reward by fulfilling your intimate desires...”

Abu Dharr narrated; 

“There were some people from among the companions of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم who said to him, “Oh Messenger of Allaah, the rich people will get more reward. They pray as we pray, and they fast as we fast, but they give in charity from their excess wealth.” 

The Prophet replied, “Has not Allaah given you things with which you can give charity? 

  • Every tasbeehah (saying ‘Subhaan Allaah (Glory be to Allaah)’) is a charity. 
  • EveryTakbeerah (saying ‘Allaahu akbar (Allaah is Most Great)’) is a charity. 
  • Every Tahmeedah (saying ‘al-hamdu-Lillaah (praise be to Allaah)’ is a charity. 
  • Every Tahleelah (saying ‘Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah (there is no god but Allaah)’) is a charity. 
  • Enjoining what is good is a charity. Forbidding what is evil is a charity. 
  • Having sexual relations (with one’s wife) is a charity.” 

They said, “Oh Messenger of Allaah, if one of us fulfils his desire, is there reward in that?” He said, “Do you not see that if he does it in a haraam way he will have the burden of sin? So if he does it in a halaal way, he will have a reward for that.” 


(Sahih Muslim, 1674 - also see Sahih Muslim 720)

A sister once wrote something which gives me goosebumps and tears in my eyes… She wrote, that some of the salaf would make du'aa to Allaah that if they were going to face any kuffaar let it be in jihaad. ‘Cause they were afraid that if they met them on the streets and they (the kuffaar) smiled to them it would weaken their imaan. Allaahu akbar! And by Allaah that’s exactly what’s going on today! We don’t show hostility or hatred to these kuffaar, we feel pity and sorry for them. Yes, call them to Islaam! Da'wah is a must for us, but don’t show them love! No! There shall be no love in our hearts for them! Hatred is what we have for them, until they convert to Islaam, and submit themselves to Allaah!

Abdullah ibn Umar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Salla’Allaahu Alayhi wa Salam), raised his head from the last bowing in dawn prayer and he said, “O Allah, curse and punish this person and this person,” after he had said, “Allah listens to those who praise him. Our Lord, for you is the praise.” Then Allah revealed the verse, “You do not have any decision in the matter whether He will forgive them or punish them. Verily, they are oppressors.” (3:128)

Celebrating the Night of al-Israa' wal-Mi'raaj

Said Shaykh Ibn Baaz rahimahullah:

“There is no doubt that the incident of al-Israa. and al-Mi'raaj is (from) among the great signs of Allaah, indicating the truthfulness of His Messenger, Muhammad (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam), and the greatness of his position with Allaah. It is also among the evidences showing the ability of Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) and it is proof that Allaah is above all His creation….

This date on which al-Israa. and al-Mi'raaj occurred has not been established in the authentic ahaadeeth, neither during the month of Rajab nor in any other month. All that has been mentioned concerning the date of occurence of al-Israa. and al-Mi'raaj is deemed among the scholars of hadeeth to be unauthentic. Indeed, Allaah has great Wisdom in causing the people to forget the date of its occurrence.

However, even if its date was confirmed, it would nonetheless be impermissible for the Muslims to distinguish that night from other nights by doing anything from among the acts of worship. Neither it would be permissible for them to celebrate it, as the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his companions neither celebrated it nor did they distinguish it with any special acts of worship.

Should such a celebration of that night be lawful, the Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) would have clarified it to the people either by word or deed. And had such a thing occurred, it would have become known and common, and the companions would have transmitted it to us. The companions passed on from their Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) everything which Muslims are in need of. Never were they negligent with regard to the religion. Indeed, they were the first to lead the way to every good. If the celebration of this night had been lawful, they would have been first to do it.

The Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) also is the most sincere in guiding people. He most truly fulfilled his mission, and performed his noble duty. If the glorification and celebration of that night had something to do with Islaam, the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) would never have neglected it nor concealed it.

Since nothing about this was narrated from the Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his companions, therefore glorification and celebration of that night has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Islaam, as Allaah has perfected for this nation its religion, completed His favor upon it and rebuked and refuted the innovators who introduce into the religion that which Allaah has not allowed.”

Umar ibn al-Khattab (radi Allaahu anhu) stated

“There is no goodness in people who don’t give advice, and there is no goodness in people who don’t like to be advised”

[Risaalat Al-Mustarshideen, 71].

Prophet of Allaah ( sall Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam ) said ‘Oh, Ibn Hawalah, if you see that the Khilafah has come to the sacred land (Al-Quds), then the earthquakes, the troubles, and the great happenings have come, and the hour on that day is nearer to the people than my hand here on your head.’”

Seseorang memcampuri isterinya kemudian mandi. Setelah itu keluar sisa-sisa mani bersama air kencing, apakah dia harus mandi lagi?

Orang yang telah mandi janabah kemudian mani keluar darinya setelah mandi, maka dia sudah cukup dengan mandinya tersebut dan dia tidak wajib mandi lagi. Ia hanya wajib beristinja dan berwudhu, wa billaahit taufiiq.

Allaahu Akbar!! I am soooo excited!!!! My baby is going to the SECOND grade!!!! Crying tears of joy!! 😢😢😢 Alhamdullilaah alaa kulli haal

“I witness that there is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
I bear witness that there is no God but ALLAH and Muhammad is His Slave and Messenger!
One of the righteous deeds during these days is to remember Allaah
(saying “Allaahu akbar”)
(saying “Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah”),
(Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is most Great, Allah is most Great there is no god
He said: “Soften it with dhikr. The more forgetful the heart is, the hard it becomes, but if a person remembers Allah, that hardness softens as copper melts in the fire.
Nothing can soften the hardness of the heart like the remembrance of Allah, may He be glorified and exalted. Dhikr is healing and medicine for the heart.
Forgetfulness is a disease, the cure for which is remembrance of Allah.”
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, la il Llaha il Allah!
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa li Llah il-Hamd !
Allah is Greatest, Allah is Greatest! This is neither in vain nor in jest, but it is meant to implant in the hearts of the believers the essence of this religion: the fact that Allah is One, Eternally Supreme, and He is Above anything else !
Allah is Greatest! His Might is above all psychological crises that overwhelm people, no matter how extensive these woes and crises are. Even if they become mountainous to the extent of encompassing the whole earth and engulfing all souls, and no matter how overwhelming people’s calamities are, nothing can relieve them of these crises except faith in “Allahu Akbar !”     #Allaah #ALLAH #Allah
Allah is Greatest! He is Greater than all temporal lusts that disseminate mischief in the earth, spread chaos in society, and tear apart people’s friendship, cooperation, and solidarity. Nothing can curb these lusts except the belief in “Allahu Akbar !”
Allah is Greatest! He is Greater than all tyrants who enslave the helpless people and infringe upon their rights, for they are weak and powerless. Nothing can set these affairs in order except the belief in “Allahu Akbar !”
