Consider the seeds you sow

Consider the seeds you sow in the ground is it you who makes them grow or We? If We wished, We could turn your harvest into chaff and leave you to wail, We are burdened with debt; we are bereft. Consider the water you drink. Was it you who brought it down from the rain-cloud or We? If We wanted, We could make it bitter: will you not be thankful? Consider the fire you kindle. Is it you who makes the wood for it to grow or We? We made it a reminder, and useful to those who kindle it, so [Prophet] glorify the name of your Lord, the Supreme.

[Qur’an 56:63-74]

[2:177]

Goodness (Al-Birr also righteousness and piety) does not consist in turning your face towards East or West. The truly good are those who believe in God and the Last Day, in the angels, the Scripture, and the prophets; who give away some of their wealth, however much they cherish it, to their relatives, to orphans, the needy, travellers and beggars, and to liberate those in bondage; those who keep up the prayer and pay the prescribed alms; who keep pledges whenever they make them; who are steadfast in misfortune, adversity, and times of danger. These are the ones who are true, and it is they who are aware of God.

[Quran The Cow 2:177]

Sincere Obedience

Surah Az-Zumar, Verse 3:
أَلَا لِلَّهِ الدِّينُ الْخَالِصُ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِن دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ مَا نَعْبُدُهُمْ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَا إِلَى اللَّهِ زُلْفَىٰ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فِي مَا هُمْ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي مَنْ هُوَ كَاذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ

Now, surely, sincere obedience is due to Allah (alone) and (as for) those who take guardians besides Him, (saying), We do not serve them save that they may make us nearer to Allah, surely Allah will judge between them in that in which they differ; surely Allah does not guide him aright who is a liar, ungrateful.

Podcasts

Salam,

recently I’ve been interested in Podcasts, asking myself whether that’s still a thing. I mean I remember, when everyone changed from MP3 player to iPod, Podcasts were popular. Or at least I perceived them to be, so what about now? Do People still listen to them? Do you?

In my search, I came up on an article by Creative Muslims showcasing ten Muslim Podcasts. Which I found quite cool, however most of them are now defunct including the Podcast Muslimmatters had and Onelegacyradio which I quite enjoyed when I found it, also seem to be defunct now.

So here’s my list of Podcasts that I find interesting and will inshaAllah try to listen in on from time to time. Note: That they are listed here does not mean that I endorse them or agree with all of their views.
