Humanity really doesn’t exist. Instead of having full media covering on the genocide occurring to the Muslims, Jews, Christians, Syrians, Arabs, etc. in Aleppo, the media full coverage is focused on Kanye West and Donald Trump; steering the focus away from a genocide currently occurring on Muslim lives. The entire world is watching innocent Muslim lives die at the hands of their government without offering an helping hand, and the only thing people care about is Donald Trump, the same person who’s discriminatory and racist against minorities the most. Wake up, humanity is dead. The civilians in Aleppo have no where to run, and ZERO hospitals to go to for their injuries. The world is coming to an end. Educate yourselves, question everything, research yourselves, because relying on the media will leave you blinded by the truth. Ya Allah my heart hurts, please #PrayforAleppo
May Allah heal the broken hearts. The ones who are silent, who cannot express their pain. The ones who are tired of torment. The ones who need a break. May Allah put an end to your sadness, may He put a smile on your face. Ameen
Ways to develop love for Allah:
1) Reciting Qur'ān, reflecting and understanding its meaning and content
2) Drawing closer to Allāh - the Most High - through optional deeds, after fulfilling the obligatory duties
3) Being continuous in the dhikr [remembrance] of Allah, with the tongue, the heart and the limbs - under all circumstances.
4) Giving precedence to what Allāh loves over personal loves, when being overcome by desires.
5) Contemplating and deliberating over the Names and attributes of Allah.
“Jannah is surrounded by hardships and the Hell-Fire is surrounded by desires.” [Muslim]
Subhanallah, what a beautiful analogy. Jannah cannot be attained except by going through hardship, and nothing leads you to the Hell-fire except whims and desires.
What we don’t realise when we’re struggling is that there is always a way out. Even within the depth of darkness. There is always a ray of light. And that ray of light is the Qur'an. Reading it, and abiding by it.
You can either stay in the darkness of the bottom of the ocean and let yourself drown, or you can collect pearls and rise again.
Towards that light.
Towards your salvation.
Seek Allah and He will fill the darkness with the light of His Mercy. Seek Allah and He will rebuild your broken boat. He will rebuild your heart as if it never shattered in the first place.
And that’s the beauty of turning towards Allah. That’s the beauty of reciting His kalaam. It is a polish for your heart that not only cleans it, but it beautifies it even more than when it had first gotten dirty.
