“Tarāwīḥ was not performed in congregation during the Khilāfah of Abū Bakr as he was preoccupied with Jihād against the apostates, and Jihād is more emphasized than Tarāwīḥ. It was ‘Umar who gathered the people to pray behind Ubay ibn Ka‘b, and he did not perform the Qunūt except in the second half of Ramaḍān.”

— Shaykh `Abdul-`Azīz bin Marzūq al-Ṭarīfī

-لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل شيء قدير. -أستغفر الله العظيم الذي لا إله إلا هو الحي القيوم و أتوب إليه. 🌙

لَا تُكَلَّفُ نَفْسٌ إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا

Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear • [surah Al-Baqarah: 233] •

Allah comforts us by reassuring us that no matter what obstacles we come across, they are never more than what we can handle. Allah tests the believer according to his or her capacity, and He always wants the best for us. It may not seem like it at the time but if we stand firm on the right path, Allah will get us through it.

Narrated ‘Āisha (radhiAllāhu ‘anha):

“The Prophet (ﷺ) used to kiss and embrace (his wives) while he was fasting, and he had more power to control his desires  than any of you.”

Said Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (radhiAllāhu ‘anhu), “The person who gets discharge after casting a  look (on his wife) should complete his fast.”

—  [Sahīh Bukhārī Vol. 3, Hadīth no. 149. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]

Allah says: “Eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He does not like those who commit excess.” [Sûrah al-A`râf: 31]

Some scholars have commented on this verse, saying: “Allah has gathered together all of medicine in this verse.”

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “The child of Adam fills no vessel worse than his stomach. Sufficient for the child of Adam are a few morsels to keep his back straight. If he must eat more, then a third should be for his food, a third for his drink, and a third left for air.” [Sunan al-Tirmidhî (2380) and Musnad Ahmad (17186) and authenticated by al-Albânî in Sahîh al-Jâmi`]

😢A silent message for all and a must read👇
REMINDER!!!

A match is 90 minutes
A tv series is 60 minutes
A movie is 180 minutes

Salat is just 5 minutes

Jahannam for 2.88crore yrs for one qaza salat

Jannat forever

Be smart to contemplate:

300 friends on whatsapp.

80 on the phone

50 friends in the neighbourhood.

In times of need 1 Friend

Funeral, family only

In the grave, alone

don’t be surprised this is life.

Verily only your salat will benefit you.

If you find dust on your Mushaf(Qur'an)
Weep for yourself

For whoever stopped reading Qur'an

For 3 days

Is called quitter

NB: You are not forced to share.

But as Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala says:
Remind, for reminder benefits the believers

Strange world:
Janazah after janazah as storms. Death after death

So and so died in car crash. Others from disease

Others walking and fell dead

All of them left life behind

And we buried them
Surely my day and your day will come.

You who delay tawbah for you are young.

Sorry it’s not written on the graveyard “FOR THE OLD ONLY”

Life is only 3 days long:

Yesterday - Lived and never comes back

Today - We live and won’t last

Tomorrow - we don’t know where we will be.

So greet. Forgive and be charitable

For me, you and them will all leave…

Oh Allah we ask you a good ending. Grant us jannah. Protect us from jahannam. Ameen

Brother/sister, if you grow up doing something you will die doing it and if you die doing something you will be resurrected doing it.

If you read this post and you gained, it’s reward… and if you share it, you spread it benefits.

Interesting stuff:

Streets - Busy

Market - Busy

Bank - Busy

University - Busy

Cafe - Busy

Restaurant - Busy

Stadium - Busy

Masajid -Empty

My advice is ensure you read the Qur'an everyday even if it’s a verse may Allah reward us abundantly Ameen.

Allah sees you sharing it.

Oh Allah whoever sends out bestow on him your bounties from where he doesn’t expect and doesn’t know.
Aameen Allahumma Aameen!

قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا

“O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. ” • [surah az-Zumar: 59] •

This description of Allah,s bounty and His attributes will bring tears to every eyes. It is a consolation that we must not despair of the mercy of Allah even if our sins are many and great, for the door of repentance and mercy is expansive. Have faith and hope in Allah especially when making duaa, calling to Allah alone for forgiveness.


Marital Relations While Fasting in Ramadān

Narrated Abū Huraira (radhiAllāhu ‘anhu):

While we were sitting with the Prophet (ﷺ) a man came and said, “O Allāh’s Apostle! I have been ruined.“ 

Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) asked what was the matter with him. He replied "I had sexual intercourse with my wife while I was fasting." 

Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) asked him, "Can you afford  to manumit a slave?" 

He replied in the negative. Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) asked him, "Can you fast for two successive months?" 

He replied in the negative. The Prophet (ﷺ) asked him, "Can you afford to feed sixty poor persons?” He replied  in the negative. 

The Prophet (ﷺ) kept silent and  while we were in that state, a big basket full of dates was brought to the Prophet (ﷺ). He asked, “Where is the  questioner?” He replied, “I (am here)." 

The Prophet (ﷺ) said (to him), "Take this (basket of dates) and give it in  charity." 

The man said, "Should I give it to a person poorer than I? By  Allāh; there is no family between its (i.e. Madīnah’s) two mountains who are poorer than I." 

The Prophet (ﷺ) smiled till his  pre-molar teeth became visible and then said, “Feed your family with it.”

[Source: Sahīh Bukhārī Vol. 3, Hadīth no. 157]

وَمَن يَعْمَلْ سُوءًا أَوْ يَظْلِمْ نَفْسَهُ ثُمَّ يَسْتَغْفِرِ اللَّهَ يَجِدِ اللَّهَ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا

And whoever does a wrong or wrongs himself, but then seeks forgiveness from Allah, he will find Allah forgiving and merciful. • [surah an-Nisaa: 110] •

Everyone commits sin and does wrong, but Allah is always willing to forvie and He alwayys gives us a chance to repent and seek His forgiveness. A believer should never forget the fact that Allah is so forgiving.
