The dua of Ibrahim and Ismail while building the Kabah

رَبَّنَا تَقَبَّلْ مِنَّآ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ


And (remember) when Ibrâhim (Abraham) and (his son) Ismâ'il (Ishmael)(peace be upon them) were raising the foundations of the House (the Ka'bah at Makkah), (saying),

“Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us. Indeed! You are the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.”

To the motherless daughters this Eid


I hear you, I know exactly how you feel and I’m sorry.

I wish I could tell you this in a less painful way but we both know we are waiting for a hug and kiss that will never arrive.

Aside from the sadness that Ramadhan has left not knowing if we could reach the next Ramadhan, we feel more empty because of the absence of a single person.

It’s my first time to celebrate Eid away from home and my family but it’s the 5th Eid without my mother - pretty much the same, I guess.

My mother used to give me a kiss to wake me up for Eid and tell me “Gising na anak, Eid Mubarak. Ligo ka na.” (Get up now my daughter, Eid Mubarak. Go take a bath now.) Surprisingly after I finish, my clothes are all ready and then we go to the prayer area.

For 5 years now, I haven’t had someone to prepare my clothes nor had someone to kiss me and tell me to get up and greet Eid Mubarak. I struggled all these years yearning for her because I was always in the comfort “zone" of my mom. She did almost everything for me.

Was my mom wrong with making me feel too much comfort and love? Most of you may say yes but I disagree. (I know, I heard a lot of bad comments from people, too. So, you’re not alone.)

My mom, through her absence, taught me one of the greatest lessons in life. - “If you are to depend on someone, depend on Allah and yourself but never on others.”

We are about 90% of who our mother is, so if you knew how strong your mother was then get back on your feet and be the woman that you should be!

Prepare yourself, let the teachings of your mother be seen in you. So that, one day your hug would also be yearned for, your kiss would also mean so much and your absence may teach something to your own child in the future.

But right now, let this motherless daughter’s greeting give you a bit of a comfort this Eid,

Taqabbal Allahu minna wa minkum.
Your mom would have been proud of you - of what you have become.

We finish strong, baby girl. We finish strong.

Taqabbal Allah Minna Wa Minkum

Ramadan has gone so let us not transform ourselves back to how we used to be before it began. May Allah ﷻ keep us strong.

✒ Benefit | A Few Sunan Regarding 'Eīd-ul-Fiṭr | Please Act Upon Them

A few Sunan regarding ‘Eīd-ul-Fiṭr are as follows:

• Reciting Takbeer:

It is Mustaḥabb (recommended) to recite Takbeer from the night of ‘Eid (i.e after sunset on the last day of Ramaḍān) onwards until the Imām comes out to lead the prayer. The format of the Takbeer is as follows:

الله أكبر الله أكبر ، لا اله الا الله ، الله أكبر ، الله أكبر ولله الحمد

‘Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Laa Ilaaha Illallaahu, Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Wa Lillaahil-Ḥamd’

(Allāh is Most Great, Allāh is Most Great, there is no god except Allāh, Allāh is Most Great, Allāh is Most Great, and all praise be to Allāh).

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen Raḥimahullāh mentioned: “.. As for congregational Takbeer in unison, THIS IS NOT FROM THE SUNNAH. Rather, everyone is to make the Takbeer individually. With this Takbeer, it is legislated for men to raise their voices with it. As for the women, they are NOT TO RAISE THEIR VOICES.” (Translated and originally posted by Br. Raha b. Donald Batts)

● [نور على الدرب ٣٥٥]

Imām Ibn Abī Shaybah Raḥimahullāh narrated with a Ṣaḥeeḥ Isnād that az-Zuhrī said: “The people used to recite Takbeer on ‘Eid day when they came out of their houses until they came to the prayer place, and until the Imām came out. When the Imām came out they fell silent, and when he said Takbeer they said Takbeer.”

● [إرواء الغليل ١\١٢١]

• Taking Ghusl:

It is established from the Companion Ibn ‘Umar Raḍi-Allāhu ‘Anhumā that he used to bathe ON THE MORNING of ‘Eīd day. The Tābi'ee Sa'eed b. al-Musayyib Raḥimahullāh said: “The Sunan of ‘Eīd-ul-Fiṭr are three: Walking to the prayer-ground, eating before going out and taking a bath.”

● [إرواء الغليل ٣\١٠٤]

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen Raḥimahullāh said: “Some of the scholars regarded it as Mustaḥabb (recommended) to take Ghusl for the ‘Eid prayer, because it is narrated that some of the Salaf did this, this is also the opinion of ‘Alī b. Abī Ṭālib Raḍi-Allāhu 'Anhu.”

● [إرواء الغليل ١٤٦ ، صححه الألباني]

• Eating Odd Number Of Dates Before Leaving For Prayer:

Reported by Imām al-Bukhārī from Anas b. Mālik Raḍi-Allāhu 'Anhu who said: “The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ never used to go out on the morning of ‘Eīd-ul-Fiṭr until he had eaten some dates… of which he would eat AN ODD NUMBER (i.e eating 3, 5, 7, or 9 dates before leaving for 'Eīd prayer).”

● [رواه البخاري ٩٥٣]

• Going For Ṣalāh (Prayer) From One Route And Coming Back From Another:

“When Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ would go out on the day of ‘Eid by one route, he would return by another.”

● [جامع الترمذي ٥٤١]

• 'Eīd Prayer Is Obligatory Upon Believing Men And Women As Per The Strong Opinion:

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn Raḥimahullāh commented: “The Muslims are unanimously agreed that the ‘Eid prayer is prescribed in Islām, some say that it is Farḍ-e-Kifāyah (a communal obligation) and some say that it is Farḍ-e-‘Ayn (an individual obligation), and that not praying it, is a sin.”

● [مجموع الفتاوى ١٦\٢١٦-٢٢٣]

• Wearing Your Best Clothes:

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn Raḥimahullāh said: “You should wear your best clothes – this is for men. With regards to women, they SHOULD NOT WEAR BEAUTIFUL CLOTHES when they go out to the ‘Eid prayer place, because the Prophet ﷺ said: 'Let them go out looking decent’ i.e. in their REGULAR CLOTHES that are NOT fancy. IT IS ḤARĀM for them (i.e women) to go out wearing perfume and makeup.”

● [مجموع الفتاوى ١٦\٢١٦-٢٢٣]

Note: Also It is known that the companion Ibn ‘Umar would dress in his best clothes for the two ‘Eids as reported by Ibn Ḥajar Raḥimahullāh in his Fatḥ-ul-Bārī (2/439).

• Greeting After The Prayer Of ‘Eīd-ul-Fiṭr:

It was narrated that Jubayr b. Nufayr Raḍi-Allāhu 'Anhu said: “When the Companions of the Prophet ﷺ met one another on the day of ‘Eid, they would say to one another, 'Taqabbal-Allaahu Minnaa Wa Minkum’ (May Allāh accept (good deeds) from us and from you).”

● [وقال ابن حجر رحمه الله : إسناده حسن ، أنظر : الفتح ٢/٤٤٦]

• Praying Two Rak’āt (units) After Returning Home From 'Eīd Prayer:

From Abū Sa'eed al-Khudree Raḍi-Allāhu 'Anhu who said: “The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ would NOT PRAY ANYTHING BEFORE the 'Eīd prayer then when he returned to his house (after prayer), he would pray 2 units (Rak’āt).”

● [رواه ابن ماجه ١٢٩٣ ، صححه الحاكم وحسنه ابن حجر والألباني رحمهم الله]

⚠ IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an abandoned Sunnah (سنة مهجورة), so revive it please, Imām al-Ḥākim used to say regarding it هذه سنة عزيزة (This is a noble Sunnah). ⚠

تقبل الله منا ومنكم

Taqabbal-Allaahu Minnaa Wa Minkum.

(May Allāh Accept It From Us And From You)

Article by your brother Aboo Maryamm al-Baakistaanee.

Last iftār of 2017, make it count, make lots of du'a for yourself, for your family, for the Ummah inshaaAllah. Who knows if we will live to witness Ramadhan next year.

Taqabbal Allahu minna wa minkum.

تقبل الله منا ومنكم

“Taqabbal Allahu minna wa minkum.”

(May Allah accept from us, and from you)

May Allaah bless you all on this blessed Eid!

Your brother


Taqabbal Allahu Minna wa Minkum.

May Allah accept (good deeds) from us and you.

We have made it to another Eid. May Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’alaa) forgive us all and accept our ibadah. May Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’alaa) make us reach another Ramadan and benefit from it. May Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’alaa) make us see another Eid or cause us to die while he is pleased with us.

Allahumma innee as'aluka al Jannah and may He grant all of you the highest Jannah.

It’s gone.

It went away and it hurts knowing we might not see it again, that it might have been the last time we spent time with it.

Why does parting with a beloved always gives us sorrow?

Masjids are now again, empty.

How can we easily forgo something we did for 30 days? Just woke up one day and its all gone?

When someone dies, we remember their memories with us, it leaves traces of memories, why can’t we do it with Ramadhan?

Allah Azza Wa Jall gave us 30 days of beautiful and mazing blessings, mercy and time to rejuvenate our hearts, souls and mind, some people never get to see this but we do we were blessed, we are Muslims. Alhamdulillah.

Did we just let Ramadhan leave without a trace in our hearts?

Did we just make it pass away us like it were ordinary days when we knew it were days of abundant blessings and mercy?

Are we not people who reflect and ponder?

Are we among the people that will just let all the bags of treasures we earned this Ramadhan, be spent one by one with by earning the wrath of Allah Azza Wa Jall by continuously doing what displeases Him?

Allah Azza Wa Jall renewed you, gave you again this rare moment of renewal, do not drown yourself again, its a new beginning, a new you, a new chapter of your life, with traces of repentance, forgiveness, mercy, renewal, rejuvenation… how beautiful is the love of Allah Azza Wa Jall to His Believer, right?

Do not let Ramadhan leave without a trace in your heart, spend the next days of your life with the memories you had from Ramadhan, from the memories where you were so passionate about your salah, your dhikr, your nonstop repentance, let it shine through in the coming days, let these actions reach once again the arrival of Ramadhan.

You’ve given so much effort to it, do not just let it go like that. Do not let all of it go without a fight. The Shaitan is back and he is stronger, but Ramadhan didn’t leave without filling your heart with shields, with blankets of sabr and everything else.

You are fine, you are such a fine soldier of Allah Azza Wa Jall my brother and sister in islam.

Ramadhan taught you what is it needed and what is it that you have to do, so don’t cover your eyes again. We do all share same feelings…

O Ramadhan,

How can there be such joy on your leaving? How can be there such happiness, knowing we might not see each other again…

So dear brother and sister in Islam, let its traces live by in your heart. Remember the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum would prepare months and months before Ramadhan would arrive, let us emanate them.

Taqabbal Allahu Minna wa Minkum!


And we pray that the lessons and reflections we learned and realized during the Ramadhan would help us become more eager to know and learn about our deen, that though it we have developed next level adoration and love for Allah Azza Wa Jall that we may spend the coming days with the intention of pleasing Him and engaged ourselves in constant remembrance of His Blessings and Mercy upon us.



Ada do'a yang sering kita lupa sehabis sholat sebelum do'a-do'a lain; kita lupa berdo'a memohon kepada Allah agar shalat kita diterima oleh-Nya.

Do'a Nabi Ibrahim:

“Rabbana taqabbal minnaa innaka antassamii'ul ‘aliim.”

“Ya Tuhan kami, terimalah amal dari kami (amalan kami), sesungguhnya Engkaulah Yang Maha Mendengar lagi Maha Mengetahui.”


Rab-bir hum huma kama rabbayani sagheera.  [Surah bani Isra'il; 17: 24]
O Allah! bestow on my parents Thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood

Rabbigh fir li wali walidayya 
O Allah! Grant my parents forgiveness 

Rabbana wa takabbal dua
O Allah! Accept my Prayer

Rabbana taqabbal minna innaka antas Samee-ul Aleem [Quran 2:127]
(O Allah! Accept this Prayer: For Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-knowing)

We pray that Allah accepts all our good deeds, and most importantly, keeps us consistent in striving towards attaining His pleasure.

Taqabbal Allah minna wa minkum

May Allah accept (good deeds) from us and from you. Ameen.

Jazak Allahu Khairan to each one every one who viewed, liked and shared the ‘Ramadan Reinspired Series’ and made it an unprecedented success consecutively for a third year in a row.

The departure of Ramadan every year makes TeamLOA sad and emotional and so we always try to announce something on Eid that gets our cheerful faces back and so Insha'Allah we think it is time to let the Lion out of the bag.

What do we mean?

We’ve been receiving dozens of emails from talented people from across the globe asking us how they could work in this cause for the Pleasure of Allah and be a part of TeamLOA.


We will be hiring interns soon.

For enquires / comments / suggestions / email us on design@lionofAllah.com

NOTE: Detailed information of the hiring criteria to be released on our official Facebook Page.

A reflection on prayer:

“The Prophet Peace be upon him said: When a slave stands and prays, all his sins are brought and placed on his head and shoulders. Every time he bows or prostrates, some of them fall from him.” (Bayhaqi, Saheeh al-Jami’)

Imagine all your sins being placed on your head and shoulders like leaves bearing the weight of your life. When you go into ruku, imagine the leaves falling off your body as if gravity has been ordered to force the cleanliness of your soul. Tell Allah with your heart that you will never kneel to anyone but him. And when you say "Sami'Allahu liman hamidah” (Allah hears who thanks Him) and you say “Rabbana walakal Hamd” (Thanks to you my Lord) you are thanking Him for honoring you and making you stand straight not like the other creatures who walk on four with their back bent. Thank Him for making you able to move and pray.

Slowly, as you rise and fall into prostration, imagine the leaves blow with the blessed wind created from the movement of your fall. Stay there. Pause. Let those leaves fall for however long it takes. The first sajdah (prostration) represents the earth which you came from and when you get up after the first Sajdah you are representing the first time He created you from the earth. Humble yourself.

The second sajdah represents death. When you rise the second time you are representing the second time when Allah will bring you and I back from the dead on the Day of judgement.

Make a lot of Du'a in Sujood and remember Du'a is ibadah and Allah loves those who ask Him. ask Him and beg Him. Complain to Him, you are better off complaining to Him than to anyone else. He will never betray you, He will never let you down, He will never look down on you and He is the only one who can answer your needs with your head held high.

Recite “Allahu Akbar” with contentment, It’s a reminder that Allah is greater than anything you might be thinking about from this world. So be honest when you say “Allahu Akbar” and remember He is greater than anything that is occupying your mind while you pray.

Do you know when you stand up to pray and say “Allahu Akbar”, Allah stands before you and the minute your mind goes wondering on silly things in this life, Allah turns His face away from you and says (Is there something better than me taking you away from me?)

Ya Allah taqabbal salaatana… Ya Allah accept our Salah, grant us the ability to pray with khushu, with full concentration, devotion, and in the correct manner.
