Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever Allah wants good for him, he puts them to test. He puts them through difficulties. Like a diamond or some metal that has to be burnt and then that which is bad from it is removed so that you have that which is the pure diamond or the pure gold or whatever. Put them to tests, trials and difficulties.

—  Bukhari

“They ask you about menstruation. Say: Menstruation is a discomfort (for women). Do not establish sexual relations with them during the menses and do not approach them (sexually) until the blood stops. Then when they have cleansed themselves, you go into them as Allah has commanded you.” 

The Holy Quran 2:222

anonymous asked:

Are prophetic dreams linked to witchcraft or gods or anything? I ask since I've had prophetic dreams of sorts all my life. My mom always told me it was from god, but now that I've been looking into witchcraft I've been dreaming almost every night.

prophetic dreams can come from a number of sources. witchcraft can certainly play a part in it, but in my experience that’s more of when it’s on purpose. or, who knows, perhaps with all the research you could be tapping into your own potential as a witch

if you want to find out if they are linked to a god of anything, try analyzing the symbols in the dream, what occurred, why it was important, etc. 

The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said :

‘The greater reward is with the greater trial or the greater the trial or difficulty of test or hardship is then the greater the reward. And when Allah loves a person He will test them. The people as long as they are in good health, good shape, good condition they are covered. You don’t know their true character because they are in good situation, they are in good circumstance. As long as they are in a good circumstances they are covered. But if a trial or difficulty or a hardship comes upon them, then you will see their reality. They will go to their reality. The Mu'min will run to his Imaan, the hypocrite will run to his hypocrisy.

—  Tirmidhi and Ibn Maajah

Narrated by Ibn `Abbas:
The Prophet ﷺ said, “You will meet Allah barefooted, naked, walking on feet, and uncircumcised.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari 6524] 

But y'all know the Sunnah is to have an open Masjid with no partition. If the Prophet (saws) wanted such he could have easily hung a sheet or something else to separate the women and the men. But he didn’t, weird. We like following culture more, and think following the Sunnah is a “fitna” (because even though the women are behind you I guess you can’t help but not lower your gaze eh?).

Quotations are also everywhere in the museum, in enormous gold letters, high on walls. Visitors are surrounded by profound voices, prophetic, optimistic, or both. Though the museum makes excellent use of audio and visual elements, it’s not interactive in the way some new museums are. It’s immersive, but not interactive (for the most part). This was especially noticeable as I thought about how best to tour the museum with the kids. I haven’t totally solved that puzzle, though I have some ideas. I realized at some point: this is a museum about listening. It’s not about putting yourself in the story (though it might, for many, be about finding yourself in the story). It’s about listening to the story, one so few white Americans have ever truly listened to before. Each quotation is like a doorway through which a whole story unfolds.

she’s standing on the stairs, begging to be let in. she’s struggling to keep her blood-shot eyes open. she’s scratching the door with bloodied fingers and bitten nails. she’s screaming in a language nobody can quite understand. she’s bending under the weight of secrets no one will take. she’s shivering under the streetlight, looking like she has just one foot in reality.

nobody likes the girl who brings news of death.

the door stays locked.

they watch the girl become prophet become banshee become misery.

they will give her to the void willingly.

anonymous asked:

can dua change our qadr or everything is already written for us?

As-Salaam Alaykum

The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Nothing can change the Divine decree except Dua.”

(Ahmad, 5/677; Ibn Maajah, 90; al-Tirmidhi, 139.)

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar (radhiAllahu'anhu) that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Du’aa’ may be of benefit with regard to what has already happened or what has not yet happened, so adhere to Du’aa’, O slaves of Allah.” (al-Tirmidhi (3548))

The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “No precaution can protect against the decree of Allah. Du’aa’ is beneficial with regard to what has been decreed and what has not been decreed. The du’aa’ meets the calamity that has been decreed and wrestles with it, until the Day of Resurrection.” (al-Tabaraani, 2/800 (33))

Where is the letter of Fudge telling me he was going to call me ‘a liar’ in The Daily Prophet? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to watching a friend’s murder and the rebirth of the homicidal Dark Lord who murdered your parents and then being called ‘a liar’ in front of the entire world. Being falsely painted as a liar when I’ve been painfully truthful about what I saw in the graveyard at Little Hangleton that night is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 1981.
