Dear reader.. part 2

bismillah

 

Dear Reader,

This is my second letter to you.

Hey I know its been a while! Thanks for your patience though.

So you tried getting rich, but failed… or maybe you made it.

So you tried fame, and maybe you got it, but at times, with fame, comes shame…some love you, some don’t…

So you tried getting a degree, but you didn’t quite hack it… or maybe you did, and then a bachelors wasn’t enough, so you got a masters, then a phd, and now you’re very intelligent… well at least you think you are… : )

So can you tell me why you were born the day you were? Can you tell the day you will pass away? Can you tell me what colour my bedroom floor is? Can you?

Nope. Because you can’t see it. But that doesn’t mean you were not born on the day you were, or that you won’t pass away one day, or that my bedroom floor is colourless…

Although you cannot be an eye-witness on many an occasion, nor can you physically witness everything that exists or happens, you do agree with me that these things are true because they have signs which point to their reality.

You know you were born that day, because you have a birth certificate to prove it. You know you will die one day, because you see people losing their lives everyday. You know my bedroom floor has a colour, otherwise it wouldn’t be a normal floor.

So I’m sure you’d agree, you don’t always have to see things plainly in order to ascertain their existence. Yet there are signs which indicate they exist.

The universe and all within it points to the existence of a Supreme Creator.

And the Supreme Creator,is unique, there is no similitude to Allah. Allah is The Supreme One True God, The Uncreated Lord of the universe and all within it, the One who created everything in pairs as a sign to remind us of His Oneness, and His right to be worshipped alone. He is The Rich, The Free of all needs, The Most High. The Self-Sustaining, The Self-Existing, The Universal Witness… The Ever-Living, The Eternal, The One who is not born, nor does He die. He is the First and the Last. The Originator..

And we will return to Him…everything will perish except Him…

Because man is a mere fragile created being…

And our purpose on earth is to establish the remembrance of The Creator, Allah.

Allah is our Provider, our Sustainer, our Helper, our Master, our Lord, our Protector.

We need Him. And we need to worship Him, to fulfil our purpose, because He deserves exclusive worship.

So then, we now know that the purpose in life is to worship Allah (The One True God), Alone.

You see, Allah doesn’t need us to worship Him. He is the Owner of power. Allah is forever Self-Sufficeint. He is not bound by time and location, for He created these. Allah tells us in the Qur’an that He is The Rich, Free of all needs and wants, The Praiseworthy.

He did not need us when we were non-existent, He doesn’t need us now, and He will never need us.

Allah doesn’t need us to worship Him, rather He deserves our worship… and we need Him.. we depend on Him.. He is our Provider, our Protector, our Creator, our Lord.

and we NEED to worship Him… because that is the purpose for which we were created.

 

( 56 )   And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.
( 57 )   I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed Me.
( 58 )   Indeed, it is Allah who is the [continual] Provider, the firm possessor of strength.
( 59 )   And indeed, for those who have wronged is a portion [of punishment] like the portion of their predecessors, so let them not impatiently urge Me.
( 60 )   And woe to those who have disbelieved from their Day which they are promised.[QUR’AN  CHAPTER 51 VERSES 56-60] 

Whether we worship Him or not, it does not detract or add to His Might and Power whatsoever, Allah is the All-Powerful, the unyielding in strength. Allah possesses the ultimate power, so what are we?… we have to inevitably submit to Him. We have no other refuge, only Allah grants true security.

So won’t we run back to Him?

and with that, I’m going to call it a day, my friend.

With love and peace,

Thurrock Muslims

I’m in Love….

bismillah

With this.

Read at QURAN KSU 

In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

 

( 1 )   By those [winds] scattering [dust] dispersing
( 2 )   And those [clouds] carrying a load [of water]
( 3 )   And those [ships] sailing with ease
( 4 )   And those [angels] apportioning [each] matter,
( 5 )   Indeed, what you are promised is true.
( 6 )   And indeed, the recompense is to occur.
( 7 )   By the heaven containing pathways,
( 8 )   Indeed, you are in differing speech.
( 9 )   Deluded away from the Qur’an is he who is deluded.
( 10 )   Destroyed are the falsifiers
( 11 )   Who are within a flood [of confusion] and heedless.
( 12 )   They ask, “When is the Day of Recompense?”
( 13 )   [It is] the Day they will be tormented over the Fire
( 14 )   [And will be told], “Taste your torment. This is that for which you were impatient.”
( 15 )   Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and springs,
( 16 )   Accepting what their Lord has given them. Indeed, they were before that doers of good.
( 17 )   They used to sleep but little of the night,
( 18 )   And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness,
( 19 )   And from their properties was [given] the right of the [needy] petitioner and the deprived.
( 20 )   And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith]
( 21 )   And in yourselves. Then will you not see?
( 22 )   And in the heaven is your provision and whatever you are promised.
( 23 )   Then by the Lord of the heaven and earth, indeed, it is truth – just as [sure as] it is that you are speaking.
( 24 )   Has there reached you the story of the honored guests of Abraham? –
( 25 )   When they entered upon him and said, “[We greet you with] peace.” He answered, “[And upon you] peace, [you are] a people unknown.
( 26 )   Then he went to his family and came with a fat [roasted] calf
( 27 )   And placed it near them; he said, “Will you not eat?”
( 28 )   And he felt from them apprehension. They said, “Fear not,” and gave him good tidings of a learned boy.
( 29 )   And his wife approached with a cry [of alarm] and struck her face and said, “[I am] a barren old woman!”
( 30 )   They said, “Thus has said your Lord; indeed, He is the Wise, the Knowing.”
( 31 )   [Abraham] said, “Then what is your business [here], O messengers?”
( 32 )   They said, “Indeed, we have been sent to a people of criminals
( 33 )   To send down upon them stones of clay,
( 34 )   Marked in the presence of your Lord for the transgressors.”
( 35 )   So We brought out whoever was in the cities of the believers.
( 36 )   And We found not within them other than a [single] house of Muslims.
( 37 )   And We left therein a sign for those who fear the painful punishment.
( 38 )   And in Moses [was a sign], when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority.
( 39 )   But he turned away with his supporters and said,” A magician or a madman.”
( 40 )   So We took him and his soldiers and cast them into the sea, and he was blameworthy.
( 41 )   And in ‘Aad [was a sign], when We sent against them the barren wind.
( 42 )   It left nothing of what it came upon but that it made it like disintegrated ruins.
( 43 )   And in Thamud, when it was said to them, “Enjoy yourselves for a time.”
( 44 )   But they were insolent toward the command of their Lord, so the thunderbolt seized them while they were looking on.
( 45 )   And they were unable to arise, nor could they defend themselves.
( 46 )   And [We destroyed] the people of Noah before; indeed, they were a people defiantly disobedient.
( 47 )   And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.
( 48 )   And the earth We have spread out, and excellent is the preparer.
( 49 )   And of all things We created two mates; perhaps you will remember.
( 50 )   So flee to Allah. Indeed, I am to you from Him a clear warner.
( 51 )   And do not make [as equal] with Allah another deity. Indeed, I am to you from Him a clear warner.
( 52 )   Similarly, there came not to those before them any messenger except that they said, “A magician or a madman.”
( 53 )   Did they suggest it to them? Rather, they [themselves] are a transgressing people.
( 54 )   So leave them, [O Muhammad], for you are not to be blamed.
( 55 )   And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers.
( 56 )   And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.
( 57 )   I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed Me.
( 58 )   Indeed, it is Allah who is the [continual] Provider, the firm possessor of strength.
( 59 )   And indeed, for those who have wronged is a portion [of punishment] like the portion of their predecessors, so let them not impatiently urge Me.
( 60 )   And woe to those who have disbelieved from their Day which they are promised.

 

 

Oh My God! I’m lost for words…yet bursting to say something…

I keep clicking replay…

I can listen to this all day… I feel something in my heart when I read and listen to this. I see warnings, reminders, promises. I see truth. I see proof. I see meaning. I see no error. I feel a sense of emergency, of urgency. I feel I have to make a move. I have to act upon it. I feel I found the purpose in life.

I feel I need to run back to The One Who gave me life, The One Who will cause me to die, The One Who will resurrect me, and punish or reward me accordingly.

I need to run back to Allah alone.

So do you.

Be objective. Be sincere. Be open minded. I’m sure you’ll feel something too.

Oh Allaah the One Who changes the hearts, keep my heart firm upon Your religion!  Guide us to preserve on Your straight path forever. Allahumma salli wasallim alaa nabiyinaa Muhammad  sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Ameen.

 

With love for the sake of The One.

Thurrock Muslims.

Have you done this today?

Asalamu alaykum.

Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an.

Won’t we make time for it?

Set aside 5,10,20, X minutes each day, in sha Allah, even little but often, for the sake of Allah, and make sure, we reignite our relationship with this Noble book of guidance, in it is mercy, guidance and healing for the believer.

2:185
Sahih International translation

The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. [Qur’an, al-Baqarah ,verse 165]

So won’t you read? : )

RAMADAN ROUND THE CORNER!

Bismillah

Asalamu alaykum all, Muslims in Thurrock, Basildon, Grays and worldwide. In Sha Allah everything’s good.

Can you believe it’s already one week into Sha’ban 1436, the month preceding Ramadan!

May Allah help us prepare and witness many Ramadan’s in total submission to Him alone and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. ameen.

Here’s a short video on some beautiful dua’s and words of repentance we can make.

We are human, so we make mistakes and sin. And we sin, small or big sins, once or repeatedly. But don’t despair of Allah’s mercy. Allah is The Most Merciful, The Oft-Pardoning, The Perpetual Forgiver, so never think your sins are to big to be forgiven! Allah accepts us when we run back to Him sincerely repentant, so may Allah make us sincerely repent! ameen!

Oh, and do check out the previous post of the best form of seeking forgiveness,the Sheikh repeats that dua in Arabic in the video below, so be sure to listen!
