“To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time. ”
You who believe, be steadfast, more steadfast than others; be ready always be mindful of God, so that you may prosper.
[The Qur’an Surah Ali Imran | 3:200 | translation M.A.S Abdel Haleem]
“…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. ”
[Imam Wisam Sharieff]
Al-Bara’ said, “I saw the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, when al-Hasan was on his shoulder. He was saying, ‘O Allah, I love him, so love him.'”
We know that “I love you” is easy to say but difficult to prove yet we still fall for mere words and complain when we are hurt.
True or pure love should never contradict or compete with one’s love for Allah. It should strengthen it.
“There were all kinds of things of which I was afraid of at first, ranging from grizzly bears to “mean” horses and gun-fighters; but by acting as if I was not afraid I gradually ceased to be afraid.”
That is because they believed, and then they disbelieved; so their hearts were sealed over, and they do not understand.
