إِن تَحْرِصْ عَلَىٰ هُدَاهُمْ فَإِنَّ اللَّـهَ لَا يَهْدِي مَن يُضِلُّ ۖ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن نَّاصِرِينَ

“If you (O Muhammad ﷺ) covet for their guidance, then verily Allah guides not those whom He makes to go astray (or none can guide him whom Allah sends astray). And they will have no helpers.”

(Qur’an, 16:37)

مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِّن ذَكَرٍ‌ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً ۖ
وَلَنَجْزِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْرَ‌هُم بِأَحْسَنِ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ  ۞

Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer – We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do. 

— Quran, surah al-Nahl [16:97]

So eat of the lawful and good food which Allah has provided for you. And be grateful for the Graces of Allah, if it is He Whom you worship.

Surah An-Nahl, Verse 114

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَىٰ مَا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ مِنْ شَيْءٍ يَتَفَيَّأُ ظِلَالُهُ عَنِ الْيَمِينِ وَالشَّمَائِلِ سُجَّدًا لِلَّهِ وَهُمْ دَاخِرُونَ

Have they not observed things that Allah has created? how their shadows incline to the right and to the left, prostrating to Allah , while they are humble. [16:48]

The Holy Qur'an: Surah An-Nahl (16), Ayah 106

“Anyone who is forced to deny faith after its acceptance, while his heart remains loyal to the faith shall be absolved…

As a convert to Islam with:

  • unaccepting parents
  • who has to denounce her Islam & keep it solely in her heart
  • lie to go to the masjid
  • wrap my hijab in the bathroom of Century 21
  • miss most of prayers, and so many other obstacles…

…this short ayah has given me strength and hope for my future.
This is a reminder of the mercy of Allah subhana wa ta'ala.

He has written my destiny. He knows what is in my heart. He knows where I am supposed to be. These are trials that will, in’shaa’Allah, grant me Jannah. And this is what I have to keep reminding myself.

At times, I feel like an absolutely terrible Muslim.
At times, I hardly feel Muslim at all.

But He is my Lord. And He is All-Knowing.
I am never alone when I have Allah subhana wa ta’ala.
I can make it through because His mercy is clearly written in the Qur’an.


Saat diri berada di dalam kekusutan, kegelapan, ketakutan, ingat lah selalu bahawa

“ALLAH is always with you.”

Never forget that.

baca ayat ini

“waishbir wamaa shabruka illaa biallaahi walaa tahzan ‘alayhim walaa taku fii dhayqin mimmaa yamkuruuna”

Bersabarlah (hai Muhammad) dan tiadalah kesabaranmu itu melainkan dengan pertolongan Allah dan janganlah kamu bersedih hati terhadap (kekafiran) mereka dan janganlah kamu menyempit dada terhadap apa yang mereka tipu dayakan.

Surah: An-Nahl - Ayat: 127

// Your Allah is one Allah; so (as for) those who do not believe in the hereafter, their hearts are ignorant and they are proud. Surah An-Nahl 22. #Allah #Quran #Islam #muslim #tawheed #deen #daawah #hereafter #qiyama

“What is your favorite Ayah of the Quran and how has that impacted your life?”

“ ‘And if you would count the graces of Allah, surely never could you be able to enumerate them’ Surah An Nahl (16:18)

If you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday, what would you have?  When I had read that quote, I was at a point in my life where if it was true I would probably have woken up to nothing. I think why the above ayah is so important to me is because it constantly reminds me to be grateful for everything I have, anything from the clothes on my back to the unconditional love I get from my parents. I didn’t know it back then but these things that we take for granted are truly some of the things that thousands of other people pray for on a daily basis. We should all strive to be more grateful and practice saying alhamdulillah even for the smallest of things and remember that surely if you are grateful, God will give you more and more inshaAllah.”

وَأَوْفُوا۟ بِعَهْدِ ٱللَّهِ إِذَا عَٰهَدتُّمْ وَلَا تَنقُضُوا۟ ٱلْأَيْمَٰنَ بَعْدَ تَوْكِيدِهَا وَقَدْ جَعَلْتُمُ ٱللَّهَ عَلَيْكُمْ كَفِيلًا ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَفْعَلُونَ

And fulfill the covenant of Allah when you have taken it, [O believers], and do not break oaths after their confirmation while you have made Allah, over you, a witness. Indeed, Allah knows what you do.

—  An-Nahl (16):91
