The Few Numbered Days…

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم When Allah SWT gives you the إستطاعت (ability) to do something, you should thank Allah SWT abundantly because whatever you thank Him for, He SWT increases. I wish I had known that earlier. SubhanAllah this Ramadan my إستطاعت has decreased substantially. I don’t feel that energetic to do what I wish to do […]

“Then Ubayy burst into tears.”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Narrated Anas bin Malik RA: Allah’s Prophet salalahu ‘alayhi wasalam said to Ubayy bin Ka’b, “Allah has ordered me to recite Quran to you.” Ubayy said, “Did Allah mention me by name to you?” The Prophet said, “Yes.” Ubayy said, “Have I been mentioned by the Lord of the Worlds?” The […]

Two Traits to become the Waliy of Allah SWT & His Powerful Promise

Istighfaar, Taubah and Hidayah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم From enough personal experience I have come to the conclusion that sins come in the way of opportunities beneficial for your Deen. Like we make a grocery list or any other list, I think it would be wise to make a list of things you know deep in your heart that you […]

Alhamdolilah for all the Satisfying Encounters

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم I remember reading Paulo Coelho’s ‘The Zahir’ light years ago in which I really liked some of his statements. Unfortunately I can’t recall much of what I liked in it except one quote of his which was, ‘The most satisfying encounters don’t always happen around elegant tables in nice, warm restaurants.’ […]
