SubhanAllah… In the Masjid reading over Kitabul Hajj (in Muatta of Malik) and my mind keeps going on the Hujjaj, just wondering what they are doing at this very moment, how the must be feeling right now! Blessed, excited, grateful, happy beyond words…
May Allah Azza wa Jall accept their ibadah and ours, and may He grant those of us who have never made the Sacred Journey an opportunity to do so. Allahumma Ameen!

Wallahi! This Ayah just hits home. A humbling reminder indeed that we should all reflect on on a daily basis. 

We spend so much time and effort in preparing and equipping ourselves for this worldly life. We spend years in school, hours at work and away from our families, and some of us have more than one job simply “to make ends meet”. Now I am not saying that this is a bad thing, but I just wanted to point out the amount of effort, heart and soul goes into being “successful” in this life. 

Then there are those who would stop at nothing to get the best of everything even if it means going to Haram things. For instance, you will see a woman sell herself and if you ask her why, she will most likely tell you it’s her way of supporting her child or herself. SubhanAllah!

Or you will see Muslims who grew up in Islam and came from a family of Muslims migrate to the West to get a “better and more comfortable life.” Migrating for no other reason than to seek and acquire the Dunya. And likewise you will find people reluctant to go in the path of Allah and study this Deen because they fear hardship and poverty. 

Such fikr and worry we have for this world. And why? Especially when Allah tells us in the Quran that He is responsible for the sustenance of every single creature - big or small, animal, jinn or human. Every single being depends Allah for its sustenance. And every bit of what is destined for us was documented by the angel while we were little nothings in the stomachs of our mothers. 

Allah is the one who will take care of us, He will provide for us and sustain us from sources we never thought possible. And it is only when we die can we say that we have exhausted all of the sustenance that was written for us. 

May Allah Azza wa Jall grant us full understanding of this, and let our biggest concern be that of our Hereafter. Ameen!

One of my teachers discussed this topic a few days ago… It such a humbling reminder to nourish the body by engaging in dhikr (the remembrance of Allah).
Many of us are concerned about acquiring this that and the other in life; we always want more and we always want the best. Many of us would stop at nothing to get these worldly things even if it means neglecting our Master and Sustainer and even our own family! Ma’adhullah!
Did we forget the promise of our Lord?
"And there is no creature on earth but that upon Allah is its provision… " (Hud : 6)
Let’s ponder deeply on this ayah. Let not the world distract us from our goal.
Of course you have to work to maintain yourself and family but at the same time do not allow yourself to become so preoccupied that we don’t find time for dhikr, Salah, etc.
May Allah guide us all.
Ameen

SubhanAllah! This could not be more true! 

The disguise of this Dunya is made up of all the things that our nafs are inclined towards - all those things which Allah dislikes… 

Yet many of are constantly being deceived by it. 

It is a sad reality that even some Muslims try to make what is haram as halal. This is only because they are literally living in oblivion. 

Nabi sallallahu alayhi was-sallam would supplicate to Allah asking Him for guidance and to see the deep reality of things. We too should do the same and pray that we do not become deceived. 

May Allah protect us all and guide us. 

Ameen.

After Isha Reflections 

Muraqabbah… Reflect on actions, speech, good deeds and sins/ slip-ups… Turn to Allah… Thank Him… Seek His forgiveness… Beg for His Mercy and Abundance of blessings…
