Lower your gaze ~ my brothers.

This picture speaks volumes !!

ArabsWithBadEyes

  • We all claim to love Allah swt
  • We all claim to pray salaat.
  • We all claim to give Zakaat.
  • We keep saum to please Allah swt in Ramadhan
  • Yet, what we don’t realize is that these are the small tests that Allah swt presents to us.
  • Did we remember what we were taught during our upbringing ?
  • Did we remember our hadith ?
  • Did we even remember what our beloved Prophet did when non-mahram women passed by ?
  • How many passed this test ? How many failed ?
  • Please remember brothers AND sisters, ‘tests’ don’t always come in huge and dire situations ~ mostly they come in small packages to test the imaan.
  • Remember ~ There is zina from the eyes as well.
  • Infact the most complicated situations, almost always arise from the most “innocent of meetings”
  • Lower your gaze, my brothers. It will lead you straight to an unbearable place.
  • May Allah swt protect our beautiful ummah. Ameen.

10 things we waste !

 Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah has listed ten things we waste. Take a look and see how right he is. (May Allah ta’ala bless his soul )

 

1. Our Knowledge .

Wasted by not taking action with it.

2. Our Actions:

Wasted by committing them without sincerity.

3. Our Wealth:

Wasted by using on things that will not bring us ajr. We waste our money, our status, our authority, on things which have no benefit in this life or in akhirah.

4. Our Hearts:

Wasted because they are empty from the love of Allah, and the feeling of longing to go to Him, and a feeling of peace and contentment. In it’s place, our hearts are filled with something or someone else.

5. Our Bodies:

Wasted because we don’t use them in ibadah and service ofAllah.

6. Our Love:

Our emotional love is misdirected, not towards Allah but towards something/someone else.

7. Our Time:

 

Wasted, not used properly, to compensate for that which had passed, by doing what is righteous to make up for past deeds.

8. Our Intellect:

 

Wasted on things that are not beneficial, that are detremental to society and the individual, not in contemplation or reflection.

9. Our Service:

 

Wasted in service of someone who will not bring us closer to Allah, or benefit in dunyaa.

10. Our Dhikr:

 

Wasted, because it does not effect us or our hearts.
