allah in heart

Please don’t underestimate you personal connection with Allah! Allah hears your heart’s intention, before your lips even attempt to whisper your request!

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.

How beautiful is it that not one du'a goes unanswered. There is never a ‘no’ to our du'a’s, but, Allah answers them in three ways;

• He gives you what you asked for

• He delays the response so He can give you something even better than what you asked for

• He stores up the reward for your du'a in the Hereafter

[Narrated by Ahmad, 10749; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Mishkaat al-Masaabeeh, 2199]

His response comes at the right time, in the right place and in the most perfect way imaginable.

There is nothing that brings comfort to the soul more than the Qur'an.

Sometimes we let the ocean of dunya enter our hearts and just how the water shatters a boat, the dunya shatters our hearts. And it hurts.

It hurts because we sought happiness in the dunya. But the life of this world wasn’t made to be perfect. It wasn’t made to be free of hardships.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

حُفَّتِ الْجَنَّةُ بِالْمَكَارِهِ وَحُفَّتِ النَّارُ بِالشَّهَوَاتِ

“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.
