This Ramadhan, Allah is teaching me about sincerity

Ramadhan Kareem everyone
Its never too late to set your targets :
how you want to be seen when you meet Allah that day

Absence makes the heart grow sour ...

“Will you call upon other than Allah if you are truthful?” (6:40)

“Those whom you call besides Allah are slaves like yourselves” (7:194)

“And those who you ask besides Him can neither come to your aid, nor can they help themselves!” (7: 197)

“Who else is there that responds to the call of the one in distress when he calls out, and He removes evil from him, and makes you inheritors of the earth ? Is there any other God besides Allah? Little is it that you remember!” (27:62)

Please make me stronger to finish this!

Kak M: How are you these days, Husna?

Husna: Kak M, I'm more engrossed with worldly affairs than the Hereafter :'( (I hate this!)

Kak M: MashaAllah, alhamduliLlah, that is good! Because you are doing it for Allah's sake

* I feel like crying when she said that because when you do something for Allah; in the end, you will get closer to Him. I hope so! Even though it does involve managing an airline-themed dinner to be successful yet immorality free

The time that we spend on various activities reflects our priority and love for each of those activities. For those of us who exhibit that behavior, Allah says the following:

“Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that you have gained; the commerce in which you fear a decline: or the dwellings in which you (seek) delight – are dearer to you than Allah, or His Messenger, or the striving in His cause; then wait until Allah brings about His decision: and Allah guides not the rebellious” (Sura At-Taubah: 24).

Worth Striving For

Assalamu'alaykum wbt,

Sweeet conversation with my supervisor:

Dr. K: Don't worry, it's not that difficult - though initially it may look complicated. but that's only normal. new things that we learn will always appear difficult initially - but it gets better as we put in more effort.

Dr. K: Yup, so don't be afraid. It's part of tarbiyah from Allah to strengthen and reward us for our efforts. Otherwise, how can He reward us if it's so easy, right? A little struggle is good for us :)

Dr. K: I'm going to sign off - time for bed! I have an early session tomorrow morning. If you want talk to me tomorrow, I'm free from 11am to 2pm. Masa tu ada break in the workshop. May Allah make your interview smooth and easy. Stay calm!

‘Laughter to Tears - An interview with Muhammad Ali”

The following incident took place during an interview with the world famous boxer, Muhammad Ali.

It all started with an innocent question: You have beaten some of the toughest men in the world in the ring. What scares you the most?

Ali: [Points to his wife, to much laughter]

Lonnie Ali: Come on, Muhammad, joking aside, tell them what really scares you.

Ali: Nothing.

Lonnie Ali: Nothing on this earth maybe, but … tell them Muhammad.
[There is a long pause]

Ali: Not going to heaven.

[Everyone present became silent. Sister Lonnie Ali had tears flowing down her cheeks. Others present were also shaken and silent. A few wiping their eyes. Br. Malik Mujahid broke the silence, patting Muhammad Ali on his arm.]

Malik Mujahid: “No, Insha Allah, you will enter Jannah because you have helped so many people.”

Ali: [Muhammad Ali turned his face towards Br. Malik Mujahid, looking at him as though asking: Are you sure? Are you sure about yourself?]

Malik Mujahid: “The Mumin lives between hope and fear.”

Where as the toughest man in the world is wondering about his place in Jannah, what do you think about yourself. Will you go to Jannah? Its a question which everyone must ask himself and herself. A good answer may help us focus on the everlasting life.

i will never give up as long as i live

i will never give up on you
even though others cannot see your potential
even though others condemn you

i will never give up on you
even though your antics annoy every one around
even though my time is as precious as yours

i will never give up on you
even though i always wonder how this can be solved
even though i have others i will never give up with

i will never give up on you
because i know this is the right thing to do
because i love you for the sake of Allah - insyaAllah

i will never give up on you
because you were once someone inspirational to me
because you have something special others don't

i will never give up on you
because Allah also never gave up on you no matter what

"now wot?"
