“…but asking Allah for forgiveness and forgiving yourself are two separate things. Astaghfirullah (I seek, ask and want to gain forgiveness from Allah) , Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah, Astaghfirullah. Allah forgave us, but did you forgive yourself? Are you happy being at Jumuah, because Allah (swt.) chose you to be at the dress rehearsal for Yawm Al-Qiyamah? Or are you here because you are a sinner, because you are so bad and you need Allah’s Mercy? Khalas, say Astaghfirullah. But after Allah (swt.) has forgiven you, you have to forgive yourself, because I could say.
Wallahu yuridu an yatuba ‘alaykum…
(Allah wants to accept your repentance…)
Allah put the Ism (as Nouman Ali Khan teaches an Ism is a Place, Person, Thing, Idea, Adjective, Adverb and more) first and the fi’l ( verb / word that has a tense) second, and that is amazing, because of all the things in the universe Allah chose Tawbah. Allah chose Tawbah. And that is all He wanted for you. ”
When Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) would walk in the streets, he would walk amongst the labourers so that nobody would point to him out of respect, and so that the people would think him to just be another labourer, and would therefore not point to him out of respect.
[Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa (9/465)]
Imam Salik, the leader of the Hull Mosque and Islamic Centre, said he would be willing to forgive his attacker if he came forward. Imam Salik was hurt after two men and a woman stopped his car as he was driving along Spring Bank West, west Hull, with his wife and daughter. One of the men opened his car door and punched him in the face.
Imam Salik, who has dedicated almost 30 years of his life to promoting peace and unity between different communities in Hull, said: “I am an innocent person who has been hurt for no reason.
“I have always said we should talk to these people who rebel and do things like this and try to make them good citizens. I do have sympathy, I think they do not understand me and my work, because if they did, they wouldn’t have done this.
Don’t know what I should say to this, I pray that he regains his eye sight inshaAllah and that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala forgives his sins for every pinch of pain that he feels as mentioned in the hadith.
‘A’isha ra. reported:
I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying: There is nothing (in the form of trouble) that comes to a believer even if it is the pricking of a thorn that there is decreed for him by Allah good or his sins are obliterated.
[Sahih Muslim 2572]
May Allah swt. also increase him constantly in patience and Iman. Amin.
I hope those that did this will be found quickly and be taken to account, inshaAllah.
this Sunday I had the opportunity to listen to Imam Siraj Wahaj live.
The Charity Syria Relief in cooperation with Al-Buruj Press and Al-Hakim brought him back to the United Kingdom for the first time in 13 years. They raised £60000 before the Imams talk and after an encouragement talk by Ustadh Abdel-Rahman Mussa.
Please donate to it inshaAllah.
You can listen to the talk below, you may need to turn up the volume all the way up, didn’t have my recorder with me my phone had to do.
An Imam was selling his horse in the market. An interested buyer came
to him and requested if he could get a test drive. The Imam told the man that this horse is unique. In order to make it walk, you have to say Subhanallah. To make it run, you have to say Alhamdulillah and to make it stop, you have to say Allahu Akbar. The man sat on the horse and said Subhanallah. The horse started to walk. Then he said Alhamdulillah and it started to run. He kept saying Alhamdulillah and the horse started running faster and faster. All of a sudden the man noticed that the horse is running towards the edge of the hill that he was riding on. Being overly fearful, he forgot how to stop the horse. He kept saying all these words out of confusion. When the horse was just near the edge, he remembered Allahu Akbar and said it out loud. The horse stopped just one step away from the edge. The man took a deep breath, looked up towards the sky and said Alhamdulillah!
I’m somewhat busy with coursework and revision for my exams. The reason I didn’t post anything yesterday. We’re nearing the end of this semester and with that my first year at uni. I’m not sure yet what I’ll do next year, whether I’ll stay at Bradford or re-apply for Nottingham University or if I manage to make the jump back to Germany. My German teacher(she’s from Frankfurt) at Djanogly comes to my mind who’s been here for over 30 years wanting to go back but once you built yourself something in one country it’s hard to go back. InshaAllah I don’t have to wait that long 🙂
