inneed

A Writers Creed Prompt

Lesser Living…

To have the bare necessities is what most people want out of life.

To be able to pay your bills on time.

To have hot water, shelter, and food to eat.

To have a comfortable place to lay your head down to sleep.

Those at the top have no real idea.

To live from check to check to them isn’t real.

They say the poor aren’t good with money.

Ha Ha, I find that very funny.

Without their big houses and cars they don’t know what to do.

To live like the lower classes they would rather eat a premium leather shoe.

Not to have a large boat to party on means their poor.

To sell one of their 4 houses means their done, over, finished, no more.

Give help to the lesser classes makes them feel or seem good.

Say on television that we will rebuild your homes because we can, not because they should.

Take a tour of devastation like a safari when nature blows.

What about those in the cities everyday on the streets, out in the cold.

To have an ability to get luxury is a desired thing.

To have internet connection, cable, designer everything that bling blings.

There are those who can’t even get sympathy for their current plite.

They would rather they stay out of mind and out of sight.

So yes feel very good about yourself being at the top looking down.

One day your feet may be back on the ground.

What will you do if ever in the same situation, hold out your hands and see if 

who you once were will give you a much needed donation.


Let me know what you think on my blog and pass the thought along.

None has the right to be worshipped but Allaah alone, He has no partner, His is the dominion and His is the praise and He is Able to do all things. There is no power and no might except by Allaah. None has the right to be worshipped but Allaah, and we do not worship any other besides Him . His is grace, and His is bounty and to Him belongs the most excellent praise.

j)      Dua for confessing your Sins – Dua of Yunus aleyhi salaam.
If you know what verse follows this verse you will never stop making this dua! SubhanAllah. May Allah answer our prayers as He responded to the call of our beloved Prophet Yunus aleyhi salaam.

La ilaha illa anta subhanaka inneekuntu mina aththalimeen

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Shall I not tell you of something that, if any worldly calamity or disaster befalls any man among you and he says these words, he will be relieved of it. (It is) the du’aa’ of Dhu’l-Noon: “Laa ilaaha illa anta subhaanaka inni kuntu min al-zaalimeen (none has the right to be worshipped but You (O Allaah), Glorified (and Exalted) be You [above all that (evil) they associate with You]!

[Sahih Muslim]

q)    Dua for acceptance of dua!

Rabbana wtaqabbal duAAa
Our Lord, and accept my supplication.
{Surat Ibrahim 14: Ayaah 40}

DUAS FOR CHILDREN
SubhanAllah nearly every week we get emails from sisters asking us for duas that might get them pregnant. I pray Allah answers your dua for a poius, healthy and beautiful progeny this Ramadan.
Here are some of the duas you can make.

1. Dua of Zakkariyya aleyhi salaam

Rabbi hab lee min ladunka thurriyyatantayyibatan innaka sameeAAu adduAAa
“My Lord, grant me from Yourself a good offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication.”
{Surat Ali Imran 3: Ayaah 38}

2. Dua of Zakkariyya aleyhi salaam

Rabbi la tatharnee fardan waanta khayru alwaritheen
“My Lord, do not leave me alone [with no heir], while you are the best of inheritors.”
{Surat Al Anbya 21 : Ayaah 89}

3. Dua of Ibrahim aleyhi salaam for his sons Ismael and Ishaq 

Rabbi hablee mina assaliheen
“My Lord, grant me [a child] from among the righteous.”
{Surat As Saffat 37: Ayaah 100}

4.   Dua from Surat Al Furqan

Rabbanahab lana min azwajina wathurriyyatinaqurrata aAAyunin wajAAalna lilmuttaqeena imama
“Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.”
{Surat Al Furqan 25: Ayaah 74}

5.  Dua from Surat Al Ahqaf

RabbiawziAAnee an ashkura niAAmataka allatee anAAamta AAalayya waAAalawalidayya waan aAAmala salihan tardahuwaaslih lee fee thurriyyatee innee tubtuilayka wa-innee mina almuslimeen.
“My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims.”
{Surat Al Ahqaf 46: Ayaah 15}

CRYING WHILE MAKING DUA

Crying and Beseeching Allah in times of hardship comes naturally. Especially when we are feeling helpless. This problem arises when we are surrounded with blessings and yet our heart yearns for the sweetness of crying out to Allah either in repentance or in humble gratitude. Here are few tips that might help you:
1. Imagine yourself lying alone in your grave.
2. Imagine your sins that Allah in His ultimate mercy covered and has still kept hidden.
3. Imagine seeing Hellfire.
4. Imagine standing naked on the day of judgment waiting to receive your book of deeds.
5. Imagine Allah turning away from you or making you blind on the day of judgment.
6. Imagine the innumerable blessings of Allah that you DO NOT deserve yet Allah has showered you with.
7. Imagine the diseases and hardships Allah has saved you from which others are suffering with. Rape, Marital Abuse, Cancer, Abusive Parents and the list of evil things which could have happened but DID NOT is literally ENDLESS!
8. Last and the MOST IMPORTANT make a constant small effort to gain more knowledge. The greater knowledge you have about the seerah, names of Allah and Tafseer of the Qur’an inshaAllah the greater will be your humility, fear and Love of Allah. We pray Allah keeps us away and saves us from being those who have knowledge but are arrogant. Knowledge is beneficial only when it increases us in humility.

If someone is new to Islam and is wondering why should I even be crying or trying to cry?

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“No man will enter the Fire who weeps for fear of Allah, Most High, until the milk goes back into the udders. And the dust (of Jihad) in the cause of Allah, and the smoke of Hell will never be combined.”
[Sunan An Nasai]
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said Allah will give shade to seven (types of people) under His Shade (on the Day of Resurrection). (one of them will be) a person who remembers Allah and his eyes are then flooded with tears.

[Sahih Al Bukhari]

I pray every single dua we make this Ramadan gets accepted. One of the duas that I wanted to be answered the most took 3 YEARS! So if you have been making dua for something please do not give up. I am extremely grateful to Allah for not anwering my dua for those 3 years. I learnt so many lessons in deen and duniya as a consequence of that dua not being answered for so long. There is always so much wisdom behind Allah’s plan which we seldom cannot see or get irritated with.

“Had Allah lifted the veil for His slave and shown him how He handles his affairs for him, and how Allah is more keen for the benefit of the slave than His own self, his heart would have melted out of the love for Allah and would have been torn to pieces out of thankfulness to Allah.

Therefore if the pains of this world tire you do not grieve. For it may be that Allah wishes to hear your voice by way of dua. So pour out your desires in prostration and forget about it and know, that verily Allah does not forget it.” 
– [Ibn al Qayyim (rahimahullah)]

Be consistent and ask for whatever you want. Allah is the owner of the heavens and the Earth! For Him nothing is impossible.
No person by himself is capable of fighting against the current of misfortune or trials, nor can humans fend off  the blows of disaster & tests when they strike. This is because man was created weak and fragile. However, when in times of difficulty, the believer places his dependency and trust with his Lord; he knows that all difficulties can be overcome. By leaving your affairs to Allah, by depending upon Him, by trusting in His promise, by being pleased with His decree, by thinking favorably of Him, and by waiting patiently for His help, you reap some of the greater fruits of faith and display the more prominent characteristics of the believer. When you incorporate these qualities into your character, you will be at peace concerning the future, because you will depend on your Lord for everything. As a result, you will find care, help, protection, and victory.

laa ilaaha illaa anta subḥaanaka innee kuntu minaẓ-ẓaalimeen

Sources: At-Tirmidhi No# 3505

I’m not sick

Hey, I’m sorry I’m such a little shit. I’m writing my own scenarios and trying to write requests as well. But I’m going to get all requests done and then I’ll put up some of my own scenarios! I’m so so sorry this is late, I hope i didn’t disappoint whom ever requested it. Oh, and thank you for requesting, you’re a doll x

Request: Can you please write a hobi scenario where you take care of him when he’s sick and he keeps insisting that he’s fine when he really isn’t. 

Originally posted by bwipsul

“Hobi, please just stay home today. Your obviously not well enough to go to practice! What if you faint.” You rant at your boyfriend, who looks like he’s on deaths door. You don’t understand why he can’t just take one day off, he’s sick, it’s not like he’ll be able to do much anyway. 

“Babe, it’s just a cold. I’m fine!” He says as he coughs all over you. You walk over to him and put your hand on his head, he’s hotter than the sun! 

“Jesus, Hobi you can’t go like this. What if you get everyone else sick too. You’re burning up. Please just stay here today, I’ll make you soup and we can watch movies in bed.” You say to try and convince him not to go to work in such a state. He shakes his head no. 

“As temping as staying in bed with you all day is… I’ll have to pass, sorry.” He says giving you a light kiss on your fore head. He walks over to the door and puts his shoes on. He puts his gym bag over his shoulder, giving you a soft “bye babe” 

“Fine, go but when you come back ten times worse you can’t sleep here. Stay at the dorms.” You shout after him. But knowing full well that if he showed up at your door, you would never turn him away. 

It was crazy to you how much you could love someone, as much as you loved him. He crept into your world without any warning. He turned your world upside down, for the better. He never failed to make you smile, if it was dancing in your underwear with him, or eating cereal in your pj’s. Him just being in your life made you smile. 

It was evident that Hoseok loved you too. Anytime off he spent it with you, he tried his best to get to see you every second day. But what melted your heart was when he thought you were asleep and told you what he wanted in life. He told your sleeping form, he wanted you to be his wife, he wanted to provided a beautiful house for you and him and hopefully one day your children. Nothing would make you happier. Hobi was your be all and end all. 

But why did he have to be such a stubborn little shit all the time.. Like all you wanted to do was take care of him but no, apparently he wasn’t sick at all. So obviously he looks pale with bags under his eyes all the time! He drove you crazy sometimes. 


You were sitting on the couch, not paying attention to what was on the t.v. All that was on your mind was, was Hoseok okay? Did he get home yet? Ugh, why couldn’t take one day off? 

You sat there glaring at your phone, hoping Hoseok would send you a quick text saying he got home safely. Was that so hard? Suddenly a knock comes to your door. You rush to open it, hoping Hobi has come, sleeping at the dorms you said… 

You came face to face with Namjoon. Hoseok was being held up by Jimin and Taehyung. You step to the side wordlessly, to let them in. 

“Hey Y/N, we were going to take him home with us… But he insisted we brought him here… So we did. I’m sorry!” Namjoon says to you, looking at Hoseok he looks worse. “We’ll take him back with us if you don’t want him, all sick around you.” 

“What are you saying? She loooooves me.” Hoseok slurs his words. He’s obviously tired and inneed of a rest, as are the other boys. 

“Shut up! Of course Namjoon, You all should go home and get some rest too.” You say to all the boys, giving them a light smile. 

“Where should we put him?” JImin asks, looking like he’s about to drop Hoseok on the floor. 

“In the bedroom would be great, thank you.” You tell him. 

“Ohhhhh, Hobi’s sleeping in his girlfriends bed” Taehyung says giggling. 

“What you jealous? Just cause you don’t have a girlfriend.” Namjoon says chuckling at the younger boy when he gasps. 

You give your thanks to the boys and tell them to go home and rest too. You go in to the kitchen and put the kettle on to make Hoseok some tea. 

You bring the in the tea, a warm towel to wipe his sweat away and a fresh pair of clothes for him. You you walk into your room, Hoseok appears to be asleep. You set the teas down and the clothes. 

You begin to attempt to undress Hoseok, so he can be in a fresh pair of clothes. You successfully removed his shirt and wiped away the sweat. Ugh, he had a beautiful body. You began to loosen his trousers. 

“Right there baby.” You shot your head up in surprise, to see Hoseok smirking. You playfully hit his chest. 

“Hobi, your sick it’s not going to happen. Come on, change into these shorts and we’ll watch something on t.v. I’ll make you anything you want. You need to rest and that… That’s not going to help you rest.” You say taking off his trousers and helping him put on the shorts. 

“But don’t you want me to feel better!” Hoseok says pouting at you. 

“Hobi, please you need rest. You’re sick!” 

“No. I’m. Not.” Hoseok says with an irritated expression. He lets out a cough. 

“Yes you are. Now, drink this.” You say, handing him the tea. He takes a sip and smiles. 

“Thank you.” He says sweetly, giving you a smile. 

“Yeah, whatever. Tell Jin the next time your sick, he has to take care of you.” You say knowing full well it will be you again.

“But you’re pretty and have a great ass, which makes me feel better.” He chuckles. 

“Yah! Just drink your tea.” You say, getting on the bed with him. You lay down beside him, he puts his head on your chest and wraps his arms around your waist. You put your hands through his hair, knowing that soothes him. He hums in peaceful bliss. 

“I love you, Y/N. I know I can be a pain in the ass, but I’m so greatfull to have you. You’re amazing! I don’t know what I’d do without you.” He muffles into your chest, his words melting you to the core. He was so sweet, you’d do anything for him. 

“I love you too, Hobi. But please in the future, don’t get so sick that you faint at practice. Just take the fucking day off.” He chuckles at your response.

“Okay, okay. But only if you’ll be the one taking care of me.” He cuddles closer to you. 

“Always, no one else can take my job.” You say stroking his hair. 

You both fall into a peaceful sleep. 


A/N- I hope you all enjoyed reading this. Again I’m sorry this is late. Feed back is always appreciated! Thank you so much for requesting, I hope I did’t disappoint.

Parents INNEED HELP

@ramblingtoaster @aclayleopard

So essentially this girl I know put on her story “I hate seeing this everywhere” and it had the pride filter on it. And I commented about why. I want to hear opinions, especially sense LGBTQ+ holds a huge place in my heart, right? So she said: “because just like seeing all of this election shit and fidget spinners and dabbing it gets tiring!”
And I was like fine I won’t respond back because I know now and then she texted “plus the rainbow should ALWAYS be used for Noah and God, not LGBT”
And I was like kinda pissed but calm and said “ well symbols evolve like society evolves, so what does it matter is it’s used for LGBTQIA+ affairs”
Then she said “yeah society changes and symbols do too, but does the Bible change?… No. I don’t care about if they have a symbol but why choose this one? Couldn’t they use something else????!!!!”
I responded, “because each color has symbolism for the community that the creator invented for it.”
“But why couldn’t they choose something different” she said
And then I explained how it’s pretty the symbolism of a light at the end of a shit show, that went with her beliefs, and how it goes with LGBTQ+ community and the shit we have to go through and then she responded on how she didn’t say she hated the “queers” (ik I didn’t say anything of that sort) and that it was just her belief and how I shouldn’t she hated gay propel and how I was forcing my beliefs and ideals on her and that she just tired of being attacked for being straight and catholic. And I was like super chill because I excepted it, and said I didn’t mean any aggressions by it and that I respect her views or whatever because people should have opinion and that and then she put the convo on her story and was like “ew, I hate when people are like this”
Like what? Being considerate and educational?
So what should I do because I don’t want that on the internet and don’t want to confront her

Pronunciation
Allahumma innee astakheeruka bi ilmika wa-astaqdiruka biqudratika wa-as'aluka min fadhlika al-adheem. Fa innaka taqdiru walaa aqdiru. Wa ta'lamu walaa a'alamu wa anta allaamul ghuyoob. Allahumma in kunta ta'lamu anna haadhal-amr khayrun liy fiy deeniy wa-ma'aashiy wa-‘aaqibat amriy, fa'qdruhliy wa-yassirh liy thumma baarik liy feehi.

Translation
O Allah, I seek Your guidance [in making a choice] by virtue of Your knowledge, and I seek ability by virtue of Your power, and I ask You of Your great bounty. You have power, I have none. And You know, I know not. You are the Knower of hidden things. O Allah, if in Your knowledge, this matter (then it should be mentioned by name) is good for me both in this world and in the Hereafter (or: in my religion, my livelihood and my affairs), then ordain it for me, make it easy for me, and bless it for me. And if in Your knowledge it is bad for me and for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs (or: for me both in this world and the next), then turn me away from it, [and turn it away from me], and ordain for me the good wherever it may be and make me pleased with it.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa'i, Abu Dawood, Ibn Maajah and Ahmad)


Benefit
The Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to teach his companions to make istikhaarah in all things, just as he used to teach them surah’s from the Qur’an. He said: ‘If any one of you is concerned about a decision he has to make, then let him pray two rak’ahs of non-obligatory prayer, then say the above.
(Al-Bukhaari, 6841; similar reports are also recorded by al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa’i, Abu Dawood, Ibn Maajah and Ahmad)

When to pray:
‘Let him pray two rak’ahs of non-obligatory prayer.’ This is mentioned to make it clear that it does not mean fajr prayer, for example. Al-Nawawi said in al-Adhkaar: He can pray istikaarah after two rak’ahs of regular sunnah prayer done at zuhr for example, or after two rak’ahs of any naafil prayers whether they are regularly performed or not.

Wisdom:
The wisdom behind putting the salaat before the du’aa’ is that istikhaarah is intended to combine the goodness of this world with the goodness of the next. A person needs to knock at the door of the King (Allaah), and there is nothing more effective for this than prayer, because it contains glorification and praise of Allaah, and expresses one’s need for Him at all times.

Answers:
The secret is that one’s heart should not be attached to the matter in question, because that will result in a person becoming restless. Being pleased with something means that one’s heart is content with the decree of Allaah.

Dua for seeking guidance (Istikhaarah)

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ ، وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ الْعَظِيمِ

فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلَا أَقْدِرُ ، وَتَعْلَمُ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ ، وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ ،

اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ (هَذَا الأَمْرَ) خَيْرٌ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي ، فَاقْدُرْهُ لِي وَيَسِّرْهُ لِي ثُمَّ بَارِكْ لِي فِيهِ

وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ (هَذَا الأَمْرَ) شَرٌ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي ، فَاصْرِفْهُ عَنِّي وَاصْرِفْنِي عَنْهُ وَاقْدُرْ لِيَ الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ ثُمَّ أَرْضِنِي بِهِ

Translation

On the authority of Jabir Ibn Abdullah, he said, “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) would instruct us to pray for guidance in all of our concerns, just as he would teach us a chapter from the Quran.”

He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) would say, If any of you intends to undertake a matter then let him pray two supererogatory units (two rakaah nafilah) of prayer and after which he should supplicate:

O Allah, I seek Your counsel by Your knowledge and by Your power I seek strength and I ask You from Your immense favour,

For indeed You are able while I am not and You know while I do not and You are the Knower of the unseen.

O Allah, if You know (this affair) - or you may mention your need now - to be good for me in relation to my religion, my life, and end, then decree and facilitate it for me, and bless me with it,

And if You know this affair to be ill for me in my religion, my life, and my end, then remove it from me and remove me from it, and decree for me what whatever is good wherever it may be and make me satisfied with it.

Notes:

*One who seeks guidance from his Creator, consults his fellow believers and then remains firm in his resolve does not regret, for Allah has said:

“…and consult them in the affair. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah…”

*Al-Istikharah dua is to be said after intention was already made to do something where guidance of Allah is needed here to ease the path towards achieving this intended matter if it was beneficial for the individual, and not (as understood by many) to choose between two matters, when unsure.
