muslim awakening

Hating someone for being white is just as ridiculous as hating someone for being black.
Hating someone for being Muslim is just as ridiculous as hating someone for being Christian.
Hating someone for being straight is just as ridiculous as hating someone for being gay.
Hating someone for being liberal is just as ridiculous as hating someone for being conservative.
Hating someone for being blonde is just as ridiculous as hating someone for being brunette.
Hating someone for wearing a green shirt is just as ridiculous as hating someone for wearing a purple shirt.

Conclusion: Hate is ridiculous. Hate serves no one, save for those who use it to divide and conquer. Nothing can be accomplished through hate.
Stop hating each other.
Start loving each other.

Sleep reigned over the Kufan town,

As from the mosque came a godly sound.

The call for prayer filled the sky,

Moving the air with a gentle sigh.

Awakening Muslims with a gentle prod,

“O people come, and pray to God.”

And in the silent mosque, Ali (AS) stood alone,

Gazing at every wall and stone.

He knew that these walls would be stained with blood,

Innocent, pious, saintly blood.

Today his blood would be shed,

These clean walls would be covered in red.

He was eager for martyrdom I am sure,

It was then he heard a tiny snore.

In a corner a sleeper lay,

Ali (AS) knew he had not come to pray.

Gently Ali (AS) awoke the man,

“Awake awake, O Ibn Moljim.

Come it is nearly time to pray,

Awake for the coming day.

I know your work, I know why you’ve come,

Remember your deed cannot be undone.”

Ibn Moljim, nothing did say,

Quickly he rose and walked away.

Ali (AS) prepared for prayer as the Muslims came,

Ready to pray in Allah’s Name.

“Allah-u-Akbar” his voice began,

Behind him stood Ibn Moljim.

“Allah-u-Akbar” Ali (AS) said again,

And knelt before God with the other men.

Suddenly Ibn Moljim moved forward to kill,

His sword with poison was definitely filled.

He raised his sword and struck it down,

Confusion was there all around.

Ali’s neck was covered with blood,

His head prostrated before his God.

Ibn Moljim quickly ran,

He was a scared and sinful man.

And Ali (AS) reeled back not crying out his pain,

His blood-drenched lips spoke in Allah’s name.

His heart felt happy, his mind so light,

He was finally ending his worldly life.

His sons held him in their arms,

As if to protect him from this physical harm.

His smiling lips parted and then he said,

“I thank Thee O Lord for a martyr’s death.”

Soon Ibn Moljim was brought before Ali (AS),

His state was terrible, Ali (AS) could see.

His bonds were cutting deep in his skin,

Causing the blood to spurt from within.

A frown creased Ali’s brow,

He ordered the bonds be loosened NOW.

The murderer into tears broke,

Ali (AS) smiled faintly and then he spoke.

“It is not too late to repent O Ibn Moljim,

Was I an unjust or cruel Imam?”

Then to his sons, Ali (AS) said,

“Give him a drink to relieve his head.”

But Ibn Moljim didn’t trust Ali,

He refused the drink quietly.

Ali (AS) then spoke, “O Ibn Moljim,

Why do you not trust your dying Imam?

If you had taken this juice of mine,

You’d be with me in Heaven divine.”

In two more days Ali (AS) died,

So “Think not of those slain in the way of Allah as dead, Nay, they are living, with the Lord they have provision.”

(Qur’an, 3:169)

A Beautiful Story…

::♥::…Sorry, but my heart is already taken by a lover of Jannah…::♥::

“He took his wallet out of his pocket to give sadaqah … after putting good amounts of money on the hands of 2 poor men, he saw her for the first time…She was walking down the street…he admired the way she was lowering her gaze, he respected the Hijab she was wearing, she captured his heart by her chastity and her modesty…She was exactly as he imagined his future wife to be.

He knew that he should not do it but he wanted to approach her, so he went to her and asked her : “may I speak to you for few minutes.. believe me, my intention is good, I just want to know where you are living” she was surprised , she looked at him for few seconds not believing that he was talking to her..

Then she lowered her gaze quickly , her face turned to red because of shyness… Somehow she found the strength to reply with confidence:”Sorry, but my heart is already taken by a lover of Jannah …He is a true believer who always lowers his gaze… I didn’t meet him yet but he is the man Allah already decreed for me…I won’t let any other man approach me or know me except him.”

Then she left and he felt that she took his heart with her. He followed her to know where she was living. Later on that day, He was ashamed of himself, he knew she was right! He thought he is good practicing Muslim until she awaken him with her words: “A good believer obeys Allah and lower his gaze!” From that day, he tried his best to change himself to be a better Muslim… He lowered his gaze whenever he went out. After some time, when he felt he was ready, he went with his father to the house of that righteous girl to ask her parents for her hand in marriage.

Surprisingly, she remembered him, she even accepted to marry him …He was thinking that she probably accepted him because he has a good reputation as a practicing Muslim. On their wedding night, he asked her:

”Why did you accept me?”

She replied with a smile on her lips:

”the day we met for the first time,and seconds before you came to talk to me, I saw you giving sadaqah to 2 poor men…I knew that nothing, but good, would come from a man like you… you would bring nothing but barakah and blessings to your family and your wife”

There was silence between them until she asked:”What about you, why did you chose me ?”

He replied smiling: ”I wanted to be the man you talked about that day, the man you already fell in love with”

O Allah grant us with suitable loving spouses.. loving whom would bring us closer to Your love!

Ameen

حتى لا يقال لم تقم الصلاة في المسجد الأقصى

ثمانية رجال فقط في كل الأقصى يؤدون صلاة الفجر. 

الاحتلال حتى الآن يمنع كل نسمة هواء من أن تدخل المسجد الأقصى لأول مرة في تاريخ الاحتلال الصهيوني لفلسطين!!. 

!أقصاكم تمنع الصلاة فيه الآن ويغلق في وجه كل المسلمين

Masjid Al-Aqsa, the 3rd Holiest Sanctuary in Islam, was forcibly closed by the Israeli forces for the first time since 1967.

Today during Fajr prayer there were only 8 people praying mostly workers and the Imam of the mosque. This is an act of war that is designed to invoke an aggressive response in order to justify this action.

History has shown that what is taken by force cannot be returned except by force. Muslims are awakening and will not allow the dishonour and oppression to continue unchallenged.

May Allah give the Muslims the strength to defend masjid Al-Aqsa from all impurities and allow us all the blessing of praying there, ameen.
