for-the-sake-of-allah

Take care of your intentions, for your deeds are rewarded according to your intentions.
Start from now, ask yourself, whatever you are doing and whatever you are going to do, is it for the sake of Allah? Is to please Allah?If not renew your intentions. SubhanAllah this will help you be in a state of earning rewards all the time.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ

O you who believe! be careful of (your duty to) Allah with the care which is due to Him, and do not die unless you are Muslims.

-Quran [3:102]

A true friend for the sake of Allah

Just one true friend for the sake of Allah ﷻ will suffice the one who truly relies upon Allah. Have you found that friend yet?
The one in whose presence your heart enjoys the warmth of their righteousness? The one in whose face you see the light of honour and dignity? The one in whose smile you recognise the grace and mercy of a Believer? The one in whose heart you find a home of comfort and love?

Just one friend who holds these qualities, that one friend can not be compared to even a thousand. For she is that one friend in whose company you sense the wisdom of a generation of elders. Those who speak with thought and experience, and only wish to offer you the best of their services.

She is your best well wisher. Your sincerest carer. She listens to you, time and time again. She helps you when you’re down. She boosts your spirits when they are low. She gives you when she hasn’t got much to offer. But not in terms of materialistic things, rather in terms of good words - words which bring contentment to the soul. After Allah, she is your next best friend. And what makes her so special is that you know she’s Allah’s friend too.

That one friend will show you not only the stars but will enlighten your path and walk you towards the moon. She will walk in her humility and grace and from such a simple act you will heed hundreds of lessons. Take the friend who teaches you without realising, allow her to be your teacher, your sister and your soul mate. Let your eyes be cooled in her presence for truly she is capable of doing so. And let your heart be at peace, let it sit in tranquility, dwelling in her serenity. This friend of yours, hold her close to your heart and tell her how very close you hold her to you. Declare your love for her in the most beautiful manner. Because Nabi ﷺ said: If you love your brother then tell him. (To the nearest meaning.)

Oh Allah make these precious friends of ours- neighbours of Yours in Al Firdaus. آمين.

Brothers, if you are trying to impress sisters on social media with your posts then shaytan will open many doors that will lead to haram and to your own destruction. Renew your intention, do it for the sake of Allah alone. No matter how many times you try to impress them, when the time is right, you will get married.

The couple who marries for the sake of Allah, knows that life is too short for meaningless arguments. They don’t marry thinking “What can this person give me”. They marry thinking “What can I give this person”. Because they know that fulfilling each others rights equals gaining the love of Allah. Bi’idnillah. 

The leaking bucket

Beware of the leaking Bucket!

1.You take the best wudhu but waste a lot of water (a leaking Bucket).

2.You pray all of your prayers in time but you have no khushu (a leaking bucket).

3.You post reminders and have thousands of followers on Instagram and Facebook but you’re doing it for the fame not to please Allah (a leaking bucket).

4.You help others but you’re doing it to gain something from them and not doing those acts of kindness for the sake of Allah’s Glory (a leaking bucket).

5.You give alot of sadaqah to the poor but you humiliate them and hurt them (a leaking bucket).

6.You stand up for tahajjud at night, fast, read Quran every day and obey your Lord but you cut your family ties (a leaking bucket).

7.You are very kind to people and speak with them gently but with your family you are always harsh (a leaking bucket).

8.You fast and have sabr for the pangs of hunger and thirst but you swear, insult, curse (a leaking bucket).

9.You wear abaya and Hijab but your perfume is strong (a leaking Bucket).

10.You are following the sunnah and have a beard but you don’t lower your gaze (a leaking bucket).

11.You honour and treat your guest well but when he/she leaves you gossip about him/her and talk about all his/her flaws (a leaking bucket).

Do not gather all your good deeds in a leaking bucket. You struggle to fill it whilst it easily runs out through the leaking holes!

May Allah guide us to the right path, make us do all of our good actions for pleasing Him alone and by Your mercy be pleased with us always Ameen.

It’s okay if your kindness isn’t appreciated. Do it for the sake of Allah and you’ll feel better. And continue to be a better person. You’ll never know who will follow your footstep and spread kindness.

“Allah does not forget the good you do. Nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.

Live your life with this principle: Be good even if you don’t receive good, not because of another’s sake but because Allah Loves those who do good.”

- Ibn Al-Qayyim

Someone who loves you for the sake of Allah will not close their eyes to your flaws, they will help you overcome them, by pointing them out for you

And someone who loves Allah, will accept the nasiha, even though it can be humiliating to be corrected sometimes, because they value their relationship with their Lord, more than their ego. 

Strive to be both. A muslim should advice and love to be adviced.

When you love someone, you don’t expect anything in return.

Even if he or she doesn’t love you back, you still pray for them in order to see them happy, only because you love them.

But it would be nice if the person you love decides to love you back.

Love someone for Allah’s sake. And you wouldn’t ask why or how.

Du'aa (Prayer) Request

My dear tumblr family,
Please do spare a prayer for me and especially those who are in worse conditions than myself.

Due to my mental illnesses I’ve fallen incredibly behind on my University work - please pray God aids me in catching up on this work and helps me to be positive.

Thank you so much!! :)

God bless you

P.S.
Any reblogs would be greatly appreciated :)

Marriage gets a lot better when you stop expecting it to be perfection. The moment you change your expectations of love your heart is now ready to mature into real love.

A love that comes packaged in a dunyah which is like a prisoner for the believer. Yes, we love in some form of temporary prison, and yet, within it’s limitations there is immense beauty and breathtaking moments to be experienced. The mercy of Allah is great, and His signs are everywhere.

Even in love. But His tests are there too. The ones to shape us, remind us of Who we need the most, of Who is going to save us. Of Whose love is the greatest.

Let go of seeking perfection and instead, embrace the journey of growing together in love and worship for the sake of Allah.
