surah an nur


- Human nature doesn’t change due to time and space, it’s been the same since the days of Habil and Qabil until now. Therefore, the rules are also constant and same
- Education, wealth, and civilization do not change the power of attraction between opposites, likewise the rules regarding behaviour will be there as long as humans are present
- The solution from the Islamic point of view is to inculcate the value of modesty, ‘iffat within our senses
- While the concept is simple, people seem to think of modesty only within the context of physical attire
- Reality is that the essence of modesty is the attitude, and it applies to both genders
- Surah Nur addresses men first when it talks about modesty, and God begins by talking about modesty of the eyes
- Eyes are a great blessing from Allah, talking about it in many verses
- It is also a means of test and trial, and how we use them
- Many people say, what if I prolong my first glance? Remember that as soon as the innocent moment of your glance gets prolonged, then your innocence is gone, and you now have the intention of lust, which is haram and sinful
- If you comment a non-mahram about his/her beauty or dress, then you are crossing the boundary of respectable interaction.
- The danger is not only in secular environments, but even in religious settings

If you desire to become Allah’s beloved repent a sincere and deep repentance

“Verily, Allah loves those who repent and those who purify themselves.”
[Surah Al-Baqarah 2: Ayah 222]

“And O believers, all of you, repent to Allah in order that you may be successful.”
[Surah An-Nur 24: Ayah 31]

Today it hit me how Allah SWT keeps His promise in the Quran that when you marry He will provide you with sustenance.

“And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves; if they are needy, Allah will make them free from want out of His grace; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.” (Surah an-Nur, 24:32)

A wise man said to a person who said to him, “I lost everything in a fire”, “I thought you lost your hope. You can earn everything with hope but if you lose your hope, then you lose everything.”

وَلَا تَيْأَسُوا مِن رَّوْحِ اللَّهِ إِنَّهُ لَا يَيْأَسُ مِن رَّوْحِ اللَّهِ إِلَّا الْقَوْمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

“…and never give up hope of Allah’s Soothing Mercy: truly no one despairs of Allah’s Soothing Mercy, except those who have no faith.“ (Surah Yusuf 12 :87)

Allah is sufficient for us against all kinds of troubles and misfortunes that we suffer. He is such a nice friend and disposer of affairs. A person who says,

"Hasbunallahu wa ni'mal wakil” (For us Allah sufficeth, and He is the best disposer of affairs) takes refuge in Allah and remembers the verse,

“…and it was due from us to aid those who believed” (Surah Ar-Rum 30 :47)

and goes on without being hampered by obstacles even if the events have huge waves like mountains. He interpretes the events favourably, sees the life from an optimistic point of view and relaxes by thinking, “A person who sees the good in things has good thoughts. And he who has good thoughts receives pleasures from life.”

hanya dia satu-satu lelaki yang tidak pernah bertanya kisah silam saya dari awal kenal hinggalah sah menjadi suami…. seikhlas hatinya menerima saya utk berada di dalam hatinya yg paling dalam..

Kisah silamnya jangan diungkit. Pandanglah dia yang sekarang bukan ungkit kisah lamanya, Tanya diri sendiri “ Adakah aku tak pernah jahil ? Ingat!! Allah tidak melihat kita yang dulu, Allah melihat kita yang sekarang…

telah hadiahkan dia dan satu lagi keluarga yg terlalu baik budi mereka.hingga setiap kata2 dari mertua buat hati ini menangis…ALLAHUAKHBAR. inilah antara hadiah yg paling terindah dalam hidup saya.. hadiah dari sebuah kesabaran. 

jodoh yang baik datang dari hubungan yg baik antara kita dgn ALLAH..lelaki soleh itu hadir bila Allah lihat kita juga solehah. dah tertulis pun dalam alquran "Wanita yang baik untuk lelaki yang baik dan lelaki yang baik untuk wanita yang baik.begitulah sebaliknya (Surah An Nur:26).. kalau buat salah jgn lupa taubat, taubat yang sungguh2 dan kembali kepada Sang Maha Penutup aib dan Yang Maha Mengetahui yang ghaib . percayalah… Allah akan bagi lebih dari apa yang kita telah hilang. Bertahanlah sekejap dengan rasa sabar dan istiqomah, bahagia akan datang juga…

وَالطَّيِّبَاتُ لِلطَّيِّبِينَ وَالطَّيِّبُونَ لِلطَّيِّبَاتِ ۚ

good women are for good men, and good men, for good women

Surah 24. An-Nur, Ayah 26

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly [white] star lit from [the oil of] a blessed olive tree, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He wills. And Allah presents examples for the people, and Allah is Knowing of all things. {TMQ 24:35}

اللَّهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ ۖ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ ۖ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونَةٍ لَّا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلَا غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ ۚ نُّورٌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ ۗ يَهْدِي اللَّهُ لِنُورِهِ مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His light is as if there were a niche and within it a lamp: the lamp enclosed in glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth guide whom He will to His light: Allah doth set forth parables for men: and God doth know all things.
—  [Quran 24:36]
One of my favourite Ayats, by Allāh it's beautiful especially the Arabic.

أَوْ كَظُلُمَاتٍ فِي بَحْرٍ لُّجِّيٍّ يَغْشَاهُ مَوْجٌ مِّن فَوْقِهِ مَوْجٌ مِّن فَوْقِهِ سَحَابٌ ظُلُمَاتٌ بَعْضُهَا فَوْقَ بَعْضٍ إِذَا أَخْرَجَ يَدَهُ لَمْ يَكَدْ يَرَاهَا وَمَن لَّمْ يَجْعَلِ اللَّهُ لَهُ نُورًا فَمَا لَهُ مِن نُّورٍ

Or like utter darkness in the deep sea: there covers it a wave above which is another wave, above which is a cloud, (layers of) utter darkness one above another; when he holds out his hand, he is almost unable to see it; and to whomsoever Allah does not give light, he has no light.
