Narrated Abu Huraira (رضي الله عنه): The Prophet ﷺ said, “It is not permissible for a woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to travel for one day and night except with a Mahram.”
حَدَّثَنَا آدَمُ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ أَبِي ذِئْبٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدٌ الْمَقْبُرِيُّ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنهما ـ قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ لاَ يَحِلُّ لاِمْرَأَةٍ تُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ أَنْ تُسَافِرَ مَسِيرَةَ يَوْمٍ وَلَيْلَةٍ لَيْسَ مَعَهَا حُرْمَةٌ ‏"‏‏.‏ تَابَعَهُ يَحْيَى بْنُ أَبِي كَثِيرٍ وَسُهَيْلٌ وَمَالِكٌ عَنِ الْمَقْبُرِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه‏.‏

How can i improve khushoo in salah?

There are many ways to improve one’s kushoo and this is partly attained throughout a long process. Here are some points I myself have found to be very effective and the more you get into the routine of this the easier it will be.

1. Prepare yourself before salaah meaning do your wudhu with caution, clean the prayer room, wear beautiful prayer clothes since this is something the prophet salallahu alayhi wassalaam prescribed. Bring that kind of awareness back to you that you re going to stand before Allah as if it is your last prayers. Many people fail to internalise sometimes that salaat is like a very important meeting with Allah.

2. Preparing one’s self for prayer can also mean motivating one’s self before or calming down. Like, take as much as you want before the prayer to maybe reflect on the Qur'an. Sit onto your prayer mat and go through the meaning of the surahs you want to recite. Or simply sit there to collect yourself.

3. Salaah becomes more important the more you revolve your day around Islam and its ibadah. I know, this is not always possible because some of us are not always home but at school and work. But it can mean simple things. Reciting a few pages of the Quran in the morning and evening, doing your adhkar when you wake up or before you go to sleep. Listening to Quran when you go somewhere. All these things can help you to bring back that ‘islamic’ feelings back to you.

4. Other than that you can change something about the way you used pray. What I mean with this is that one must maybe start to to lengthen their prayers and instead of just praying 4 fardh rakaat without dhikr afterwards, add the recommended sunnah prayers to it.

The prophet salallahu alayhi wassalaam said:

Allah will build a house in Heaven for whoever is diligent in observing 12 Sunnah Rak'aat (as follows): 4 Rak'aat before and 2 after the Dhuhr (Midday) Prayer, 2 after the Maghrib (Sunset Prayer), 2 after the ‘Ishaa’ (Evening) Prayer and 2 before the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer.“ Hadith sahih narrated by at-Tirmidhi No. 379 and by others. Hadith No. 6183 in Sahih al-Jaami’.

I think this is very effective for those among us who have the tendency to rush through salaah. It will cause you to have more discipline, and increase your concentration.

4. Learn new surahs with meaning by heart. It can be either a surah that you really like and that makes you feel very emotional, or you can memorize the recommend 30 juzz, the last 20? pages of the Qur'an and strengthen your memory by constantly reciting in in salaah.
I personally think that the longer one’s are very helpful because again you don’t have the option to rush through your prayer.

5. A small thing I also wanted to mention is music. Music is so toxic for salaah, there were so many times I would hear some random music before and it would exactly play inside my head when I would start salaah.

That’s all that I had found to be effective in a way. For the ones who know more, can add their tips to it. Maybe you should also look into the book 'inner dimensions of prayer’.

I cannot get over this hadith 😍

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) said, “Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: “Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?”

(Bukhari 1145)

You will not care of their nakedness…

The following narration will help put things into perspective. Sometimes, we get so distracted by our daily routines that we forget about where we’re ultimately headed.

Urwah the nephew of Aaisha رضي الله عنها, narrated from her that the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said:

The people will be raised up on the Day of Resurrection barefoot, naked and uncircumcised.”

‘Aishah رضي الله عنها, said: “What about their 'Awrahs?” Meaning, won’t people be concerned about covering their private parts? Won’t people be looking at each other?The Prophet ﷺ replied: 

“Every man that day will have enough to make him careless of others”.

[Ref: Sunan an-Nasa'i 2083 / In-book ref: Book 21, Hadith 267 / English translation: Vol. 3, Book 21, Hadith 2085]

.

Just take time out to think about this for a few moments.

  • The Day of Judgement is real.
  • It’s not a myth nor is it a story.
  • It’s a reality every man, woman and child has to face.
  • Muslim and non-Muslim alike.

Allah and His Messenger ﷺ warned us about this great and momentous day. We will all be terrified. So terrified that we won’t even pay attention to the fact that everyone around us will be naked.

When you think about this, it puts our routines into perspective, allows us to prioritise our daily affairs and brings things back into focus. Therefore don’t let life get in the way of you achieving your ultimate goal: 

                                            Jannah.

Sahih Muslim, The Book of Prayer - Travellers Book 6, Hadith 269

Narrated ‘Abdullah reported Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) as saying:
What a wretched person is he amongst them who says: I have forgotten such and such a verse. (He should instead of using this expression say): I have been made to forget it. Try to remember the Qur'an for it is more apt to escape from men’s minds than a hobbled camel.


Sahih Muslim, The Book of Prayer - Travellers, Hadith 269/378

The Messenger of Allah [p.b.u.h] said: ‘Trials will continue to befall the believing man and woman, with regard to themselves, their children and their wealth, until they meet Allah with no sin on them.’
—  [Narrated by al-Tirmidhi]
It would make me happy if man would make time for himself for four nights in the year, which are: Night of Al-Fitr, Night of Al-Adhā, fifteenth night of Shabāan, and the first night of Rājab.
—  Amir Al-Mumineen (سلام الله عليه), Bihār Al-Anwār, Al-Majlisi, V.88, P.123 (Translated by your brother)
Riyad as-Salihin, The Book of Good Manners  Book 2, Hadith 685 

Narrated ‘Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (ra): 
Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, “The most evil of the people to Allah on the Day of Resurrection will be the man who consorts with his wife and then publicizes her secret.”[Muslim].

anonymous asked:

When I think about the future I become depressed. I am the best version of myself as in I pray 5 times a day, don't engage in haram stuff at all and yet I'm not getting help from Allah regarding my future what I want to be or motivation. Why? What's wrong with me?

I am not best person to advice on such issue but remember we should rely on Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala more than our efforts when we just see our efforts it will make us more anxious and depress that what will happen next. We should know that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala plan are better than our wishes. So try your best what you want to achieve in life and leave the rest to Allah. He knows what’s best for us. Make dua and ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala for help never think that He is not helping us. Our dua are always accepted as narrated in hadith:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Any Muslim who makes a supplication containing nothing which is sinful, or which involves breaking ties of relationship, will be given for it by Allah one of three things: He will give him swift answer, or store it up for him in the next world, or turn away from him an equivalent amount of evil.” Those who heard it said they would then make many supplications and he (peace be upon him) replied that Allah was more ready to answer than they were to ask.

(Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2257)

Lastly we always have something to improve in ourself and we shouldn’t think we are the best versions of ourself. Maybe outwardly we are the best version but from inside we need to have pure hearts and shouldn’t feel proud if we are doing something good; it’s from Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. We should be humble and ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala to accept our deeds.

May Allah make things easier for you.
Allahumma Ameen

P.S if you are having problem in selecting a career then talk with your family and friends. They will advice you in shaa Allah

Indeed be grateful to Allah under all conditions. No matter what the situation is, the affairs of a believer are all good as mentioned in this hadith: Muslim (2999) narrated that Suhayb (may Allaah be pleased with him)said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “How wonderful is the affair of the believer, for his affairs are all good, and this applies to no one but the believer. If something good happens to him, he is thankful for it and that is good for him. If something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience and that is good for him.”

Oftentimes staying in the house is the best course of action. There’s so much fitnah outside and one must tread with caution and remember the Hadith narrated from Abi Hurairah that the Nabi ﷺ said: “Hasten to do good deeds before there emerges fitnah like a piece of black night, when a man will be a believer in the morning and a disbeliever in the evening, or he will be a believer in the evening and a disbeliever in the morning, and he will sell his religion for worldly gain.”

Narrated by Muslim (118).

What Enters Most People Into Paradise And Hellfire?

Abu Huraira (رضي الله عنه) reported: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was asked: “What enters most people into Paradise?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said: 
“Fear of Allah and good character.” 

It was asked: “What enters most people into the Hellfire?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said:
“The mouth and the private parts.” 

Source: [Sunan At-Tirmidhi 2004]

Abū Hurairah (RA) narrates “I heard the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) saying “All the sins of my followers will be forgiven except those of the Mujahirin (Those who commit a sin openly or disclose their sins to the people). An example of such disclosure is that a person commits a sin at night and though Allāh screens it from the public, then he comes in the morning, and says, ‘O so-and-so, I did such-and-such (Evil) deed yesterday,’ though he spent his night screened by his Lord (None knowing about his sin) and in the morning he removes Allāh’s screen from himself.” [Al-Bukhâri Vol.8, Ḥādīth #6069, Pg.61-62]

Man Kunto Maula

“For whoever I am Maula, Ali is his Maula,”
Were the words Muhammad proclaimed,
For Muhammad and Ali realise each level of this claim:
Indeed like Muhammad, Ali too was but a slave of his Lord (72:19);
And like the Prophet, the Imam was named Wali by his Lord (5:55);
And like the Messenger, the Guide was an Intimate of the Word (13:7; 56:79);
Indeed like Muhammad, Ali too is Master of the creations of the worlds.

You will be questioned about the sins you repented from:

A man asked Al Hassan: “If the person repents from a sin will he be forgiven?” He replied: “Yes.” He then asked: “Will Allah expunge it (from his book)?” He replied: “No; by Allah. Not until He stops him and questions him about it.” Then Al Hassan began to cry and he said: “If the person did not cry except due to shyness from Allah the Exalted, this should be enough to make him cry.”

Al-Awza'i said Bilaal ibn Sa’d said: Verily Allah forgives the sins, but He will not expunge the sins from the book until the person is questioned about them on the Day of Judgment; even if he repented from the sin.

المورد العذب المعين من آثار أعلام التابعين

Al-Qurtubi mentioned the hadith:

It has been narrated by Ibn Umar— رضي الله عنهما —he said, I heard the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم saying:

يدنى المؤمن يوم القيامة من ربه حتى يضع كنفه عليه، فيقرره بذنوبه، فيقول : أتعرف ذنب كذ ا؟ أتعرف ذنب كذ ا؟ فيقول : رب
أعرف قال : فإني قد سترتها عليك في الدنيا، وأنا أغفرها لك اليوم، فيعطى صحيفة حسناته “

The believer will be brought close to his Lord on the Day of Judgment until He shields him. He will make him confess to his sins. He will say to him: “Do you remember this sin? Do you remember that sin?” He will reply: “My Lord, I remember.” He will say to him: “Verily I covered your sin in the world and I forgive you for it today.” Then he will be given his book of good deeds. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Al-Qurtubi said: “This is in reference to the sins he repented from.”

And Al-Qurtubi said: “This does not contradict what is in the revelation and the hadith about the sins being transformed into good deeds by repentance, because perhaps this will occur after the person is questioned about his sins. And Allah knows best.”
