Rabanna #Two

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

“Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.”

RABBANA WAJ ALNA MUSLIMAYNI LAKA WA MIN DHURRIYYATINA UMMATAM MUSLIMATAL-LAK WA ARINA MANASIKANA WA TUB ALAYNA INNAKA ANTAT-TAWWABUR-RAHIM.

(Surah Al Baqarah 2:128)

This was the dua of Ibrahim (as); the end result of his fear and recognition of Allah after completing actions whilst being obedient and subservient.

One should make this dua for obedience and subservience to Allah alone. The reason is that when the recognition of Allah is increased, his realisation is also increased.

Ibrahim (as) also made dua for his offsprings. The close servants of Allah are more concerned about the spiritual welfare of their offspring especially their welfare in the Aakhirah. Another reason for praying for the offspring is that they may, by their good deeds set a good example to future generations and the nation of Islam will benefit as a whole.

The Divine Decree Is Always A Bounty

Ibn Qayyim (May Allah be pleased with him) says:

“The divine decree related to the believer is always a bounty, even if it is in the form of withholding (something that is desired), and it is a blessing, even if it appears to be a trial, and an affliction that has befallen him is in reality a cure, even though it appears to be a disease!”

Friday Message | Love & Fear – The Balance

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

‘Indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty; but indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful.’

(Surah Al Araf 7:167)

One of the most essential things that we Muslims must grasp is to incorporate the feeling of love, fear and hope of Allah within our hearts; the balance should be reflected in our worship.

We should always hope that Allah will accept our repentance and forgive us, but we should also fear that we may be accountable for our actions. May Allah (swt) grant us all the wisdom to understand, Ameen.

The Ummah and Gaza

Originally posted on Judge Yourself Honestly:

Over the past few weeks, the situation in Gaza has worsened to a degree that cannot be expressed in words. I can’t imagine what the people of Gaza are going through. I can’t fathom the thoughts that are running through a mother’s head as she holds her lifeless baby in her arms. I can’t perceive the sadness a young boy undergoes after he losses his parents. I can’t feel the pain a young girl must be feeling as she is kidnapped from her home and abused. I can’t understand the grief that overtakes a father as he watches his family killed before his eyes. I can’t. It’s sad that I’m writing this without a single tear rolling down my cheek and it’s sad that I can hear story after story without crying. I’ve heard so much over the past few years that I’ve become desensitized to hearing and listening to accounts…

Rabanna #One

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

“Our Lord, accept [this] from us. Indeed You are the Hearing, the Knowing.”

RABBANA TAQABBAL MINNA INNAKA ANTAS-SAMI-UL- ALIM.

(Surah Al Baqarah 2:127)

This dua was read by Ibrahim (as) and Ismail (as) when they completed the building of the Ka’bah.

This teaches us that a person must not be satisfied with actions only. Rather, after the action, be humble and beg Allah to accept it. This is taught from the action of Ibrahim (as). After completing such a lofty action he does not express pride, rather he asks Allah to accept the action.
