Redundantly Religious.

There are dozens of religions on this planet and millions upon millions who follow each of those religions. But every religion that follows a supreme creator AKA “God” believes that he/she is all knowing. Beginnings and ends. But if there is really only one religion we are all supposed to follow then that would mean God is condemning millions of us into Hell before we even had the chance to factually know the right path. Because he/she knows that millions of us will never convert from one religion to the other. We were placed here to live righteous lives and religion is the most powerful structure humans have that helps us keep sanity. You cannot be punished for unknowingly following the wrong lifestyle if your life was already predetermined to play out that way.

“… That you may know the number of years and the count [of time]…” (Quran 10:5)

Reflection: The Quran describes one of the created purposes of the moon in this beautiful verse. Aside from providing cool light to guide us in the darkness of the night, its phases may also be “read” like a lunar clock to tell time. Before mechanical clocks were invented, the moon was sufficient for a pastoral people to be able to keep track of the number of years. “Nowise did God create this but in truth… Thus does He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand” (Quran 10:5).

The danger in living between obedience and sin is that you don’t know in which state you will die.

Ask forgiveness of Allah by Shaikh Dr. ‘Abdur-Razaq al-badr  حفظه الله

Allaah, the Most High, in encouragement of seeking forgiveness, and in making clear its excellence and its fruits both in this worldly life and in the Hereafter, refer to what Nūh عليه السلام‎ said:

“I said (to them): 'Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Oft-Forgiving; 'He will send rain to you in abundance; 'And give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers.’ ” [Surah 71; Verses 10-12]

This tremendous āyah promises numerous benefits and offers important lessons for those who seek forgiveness and for those who constantly ask forgiveness for their sins.

It is related that a man came to al-Hasan al-Basrī رحمه الله‎ , the noble Taabi'ee, and complained to him of poverty. So he said to him,

“Ask forgiveness of Allāh”.

Another man came to him complaining that he did not have any children. So he said to him,

“Ask forgiveness of Allāh”.

A third man came to him complaining of the barrenness of his garden. So he said to him,

“Ask forgiveness of Allāh”.

He then recited to them the saying of Allāh, the Perfect and Most High:

“I said (to them): 'Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Oft-Forgiving; 'He will send rain to you in abundance; 'And give you increase in wealth and children, and bestow on you gardens and bestow on you rivers.’ ” [Surah 71; Verses 10-12]

These then are some of the fruits of seeking forgiveness and some of its benefits in the worldly life.

Help a sister in islam (@jesuisanette) with her financial situation

jesuisanette needs our help! She has created her gofundme page- 

“Salam Aleikum dear brothers and sisters.

Im sure my situation is not uniqe but it doesnt mean that you cant help with it. I reverted over a year ago when i found my true faith in islam.(Alhamdulillah) This was the time when i had to leave my haram job and i started wearing hijab. Since then i coulnt really find a job with my profession or due to not enough experience in the field. I studied in college 2 years ago why i had to take student loans and other loans due to my mom’s illness.
Now im here nearly 8 months ago without a job and benefits and income.( I am constantly applying for jobs but with no “luck”) We all know rizq comes from Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala but due to non muslim country my interest on my loans are just growing day by day. I got many warnings already and they dont really care that i dont have a job to pay them. It is a really depressing situation I am dealing with lots of stress thanks to my riba and debt and I am really scared of my sins.


“By the One in Whose hand is my soul, if a man were killed in battle for the sake of Allaah, then brought back to life, then killed and brought back to life again, then killed, and he owed a debt, he would not enter Paradise until his debt was paid off.” Classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Nasaa’i, 4367.
It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The soul of the believer is suspended because of his debt until it is paid off.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (1078).
I dont have parents to support me . I have faith and trying to have sabr and make dua all the time to have change in my situation but right now I would like to ask you kindly to help me with this struggle.
“Whoever gives charity equal to a date from good (halal) earnings – for Allaah does not accept anything but that which is good – Allaah will take it in His right hand and tend it for the one who gave it as any one of you tends his foal, until it becomes like a mountain.”


It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no day on which the people get up but two angels come down and one of them says, ‘O Allaah, give in compensation to the one who spends (in charity),’ and the other says, ‘O Allaah, destroy the one who withholds.’”
Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection . “
I wouldnt ask for help if it wouldnt be really important. All donations will go straight to my loans. If you cant donate then please make dua for me! JazakAllah khair for everyone.

Donate to her here

I KNOW THERE WILL BE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO MAKE SURE THIS IS NOT FAKE (even if my facebook attached to this site) SO I AM MORE THEN HAPPY TO PROVIDE BANK STATEMENTS AND DETAILS ABOUT MY LOANS. (and that is so sad there are people who want to use a charity site to get money for themself.)”
