obey the lord!

Judaism is not a religion of blind obedience. Indeed, astonishingly in a religion of 613 commandments, there is no Hebrew word that means  "to obey”. When Hebrew was revived as a living language in the nineteenth century, and there was need for a verb meaning “to obey,” it had to be borrowed from the Aramaic: le-tsayet. Instead of a word meaning “to obey,” the Torah uses the verb shema, untranslatable into English because it means [1] to listen, [2] to hear, [3] to understand, [4] to internalise, and [5] to respond. Written into the very structure of Hebraic consciousness is the idea that our highest duty is to seek to understand the will of God, not just to obey blindly.

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.

WINNER’S TATTOOS

Lee Seunghoon

I’ll start with the cutest tattoo. Seunghoon has the W from Winner’s logo with a circle to represent the Inner Circle

He also has a hand (?) in his hips

Song MinHo 

a crown

“oxygen”

“deuteronomy 28:1” in his chest

It’s a verse from bible who says “If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.”

“Be Nice” and “Be kind” in his shoulders.

Nam Taehyun

Taehyun is a big fan of Jean-Michel Basquiat, an african american neo-expressionist artist. He has his name on his left arm.

“Stay Gold” and the banana who was inspired in one of Basquiat works.

In his words: “I want to do everything with that mindset. ‘Stay Gold’ is that kind of word. it means the Golden Age. at the end on WIN, we received the title of Winner. since then, I’m spending my days very well. I think that’s what youth is. it’s the Golden Age that you can get only once in your whole life. I didn’t thought much about it and just followed my heart and got it tattooed on my wrist. I’m really happy that I could experience all these moments up until now.“

A bat on his right arm. Also inspired by Basquiat’s drawings.

My favorite, "I don’t do drugs, I am drugs”

A flower seems like it was made by Christophe Louis Quibe, a french illustrator. (i’m not sure)

“MIVIIXCLM” The roman numeral tattoo of Taehyun is from Jean-Michel Basquiat’s “Profit I” painting.

“baby baby” in a fancy font in his right arm.

A line

“South Buyers Club” inspired in “dallas buyers club”, the movie who gave an oscar to Jared Leto.

kurt cobain’s drawing of a guitarist.

jinwoo and seungyoon don’t have any tattoos yet.

Deuteronomy 6:5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. When we do that, His love floods our heart and we are radically changed. I believe our level of obedience grows as we get to know and experience His love, goodness and faithfulness in our lives. Our desire to follow and obey the Lord’s commandments increases as we love God with all our heart. I encourage you to seek God above all else and ask the Holy Spirit to help you grow in love for God and in the knowledge of His grace.

This is something I’ve seen to be always 100% true! When something comes against me and boyfriend @our-home-to-be-alone we anger for a moment but He reminds me each time to put it In God’s Hands and pray about it. There would always be light that came into the situation. I choose to trust Jesus! 🙌❤️🙏

—  Holy Qur'an, al-Baqarah 285

If your Muslim and you don’t know much about Islam, but you like to debate non-Muslims, I advise you to focus on the teachings of your own religion and on obeying your Lord, may He be exalted, and to refrain from seeking out the misguidance of other sects and religions.

That battle has its own knights, and there is no reason why you should not be one of them, but this requires academic experience and lengthy pursuit of knowledge, as well as knowing the truth with evidence to support it.

I ask Allah, may He be exalted, to guide the Muslims to that which is best for their religious and worldly interests.
