A VERY Nice Lesson...!

Once a boy went to a shop with his mother.The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle withsweets and said, 'Dear Child, you can take the sweets.'But the child did not take it.The shop keeper was surprised. He is such a small child and why is he nottaking the sweets from the bottle.Again he said to take the sweets...Now the mother also heard that and said, 'Take the sweets dear.'Yet he did not take..The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets, he himself took the sweetsand gave in to the child’s hand.The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets.While returning home the Mother asked the child,'Why did you not you take the sweets when the shop keeper told you to take?'Can you guess the response:-The child replies, 'Mom, my hands are very small, and if I take the sweets,I can only take few. But, now you see -when uncle gave with his big many more sweets I got??'Moral:When we take we may get little;but, when Allah - The Almighty gives,He gives us more beyond our expectations. ...more than what we can hold...!!

Junaid Baghdadi and Love for Allah

Once at the time of Hajj, there was a gathering in Mecca of some friends of Allah; the youngest among whom was Junaid Baghdadi (ra). In that gathering, there was a discussion on the subject of 'Love for Allah' and as to who is the lover of Allah. Many of them expressed their views on the subject, but Junaid (ra) kept quiet. He was pressed to say something.

With his head bowed down and tears in his eyes, he said, "The lover of Allah is he who forgets his own self, remains engaged in Allah's remembrance with due regard to all its requirements; sees Allah with the eyes of his heart, which is burnt by the heat of Allah's fear; Allah's remembrance affects him like a cup of wine, he speaks the word of Allah as if All-Mighty Allah speaks through his mouth; if he moves, he does so under the command of Allah; he gets peace of mind only through the obedience of Allah; and when such a stage is reached, his eating, drinking, sleeping, awakening and, in short, all his actions are for the pleasure of Allah; he neither pays heed to the worldly customs, nor does he attach any importance to unfriendly criticism by people."

BRR Story of love ...

A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked.

"No", she replied. "He's out."

"Then we cannot come in", they replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.

"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!"

The woman went out and invited the men in.

"We do not go into a House together," they replied.

"Why is that?" she asked.

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home?"

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"

His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"

Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!"

"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife.

"Go out and invite Love to be our guest."

The woman went out and asked the three old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other two old men also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!"

BislmiLlahir Rahmaanir Rahiim

Let's talk about love,most of you guys might have fallen in love before,right?inshaAllah.we hope that you guys have.Because love is the wonderful feeling and thing ever in this world,it what makes world goes around.

Some might have said that Love is hurtful and they wouldn't want to fall in love ever again,if you have a feeling like that,then that's not Love.It might just be an imagination of Love,or just lust.

Love is a feeling from our heart,while lust is from our nafs.Heart speaks truthfully while nafs doesn't.It's accompany from satan and always tries to blind you from the truth making you think that you know the truth,while it's a lie.

If we fall in love with a person,we wouldn't feel hurt if our beloved might have hurt us.Sometimes even if they lied or cheat us,it's hard for us to get hurt and easily forgive that person.Because love is so strong that it repels away hatred,envy,jealousy,revenge etc.So its feelings will overcome all those negative feeling.If you felt that way towards a person,then that's love!But on the other hand,if the person you think you fell in 'love' with hurt you or lied you and you get hurt and follow your own negative feelings of hatred etc.then that is not love!

Firstly this is a reminder for ourselves and hope to remind others as well.We really hate it when people said by their tongues that they love God,but when a trials come to them,they complained.

It also goes for us,we all are weak servants.But,when we want to said that;"we love you Allah"

Make sure that when a trials came to you,try not to complain but ask for His Mercy,He gave us the trials or tests so that we would be closer to Him,if we are patient that is better,Allah will raise our darajat so that we would be close to Him.

When Love came,the hatred will go away,lust will go away and every negative things will be washed away.As a muslim,all of us need to Love everyone.Even the kafiruns and not only the muslims.When we start loving Allah,everything seems possible and nothing is impossible,we will not look at the outward form of a person but in their inward form.We will look at everyone and it will be like we are looking right into the mirror.And what will you see when you look at the mirror?Of course,your own self.Will you hate yourself? Of course not.Unless it is for God sake.When a favor come to a person,we will be happy for them.When blessings or wealth or anything good come upon them,we will be a lot happy for them and would neither feel jealous,greedy(etc) or hate that person.

Abu Hurairah [ra] relates that the Prophet [saw] said,
Allah will ask on the Day of Judgment: “Where are those who loved each other for the sake of My glory? Today, on a day when there is no shade but Mine, I shall shade them with My shade.” (Muslim)

Abu Hamzah Anas bin Malik [ra] who was the servant of the Messenger of Allah [saw] reported that the Prophet [s]aw said:
"None of you truly believes (in Allah and in His religion) until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself"
[Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

So love is the most importing thing in our live especially the love for Allah.When you love Allah,no one and nothing can harm you except Allah's wrath Himself.

We have yet to taste Allah's true Love in our heart and we prayed that one day,Allah will shower us all in His Divine Mercy and Love.And let us taste even an atom of His Divine Love.

Ya Allah,nasaluka hubbuka wa hubbu man yuhibbuka,wa hubbu amalun yuballighuna illa hubbika Ya Arhaman Rahimiin.amiin

If there is any mistakes,please inform us due to our weakness and the rest came from Him.

until now,

wassalam wr wb.

Confession of God Slave:A reminder from the Heart

O myself

Be like pig

Even though people treated it like some **

You are more impure than them

O myself

Be like a fly

Even though people hate it

It gives Benefit for them

O myself

Be like a dog

Even if the master beat it up

It'll come back humbly with it's tail wagging

O myself

Be like donkey

Even though people make use of them

They still carry the burdens patiently

O myself

Be like the earth

Even thought people would step on it

It'll happily provide them with shade and sustenance

O myself

Be like an atom

Spinning in Divine Love

And let others think you're crazy

O my Lord

Yesterday i hurt a servant of Yours

Ashamed and embarrassed i am

But if You could meet me up with that servant of Yours

I would like to ask for that person forgiveness

And i'm hoping that You would open their hearts to forgive me

Feeling depressed for what i did

Since Your beloved would not hurt Your servants

Now i am complaining the pain in my heart towards You

And hoping for Your Mercy and Love to shower me

Even though i'm worst than a urine dog

And worst than the smell of a skunk

But still You acknowledge me

Praise be to You Alone!

An Interesting Funeral

One day all the employees of a very unusual company reached their office andall saw a big sign on the main door which said this:"Yesterday, the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away.We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym."In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a whilethey started getting curious to know who was that person who hindered the growth of theircolleagues and the company itself?The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowdwithin the room. The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up.Everyone thought - "Who is this person who was hindering my progress?"One by one the intrigued employees got closer to the coffin, and when theylooked inside it, they suddenly became speechless.They all got to stand near the coffin, and all ended up shocked and in silence,as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see themselves!There was also a sign next to the mirror that said:There is only one person who is capable of setting limits to your growth and IT IS YOU!MoralYour life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change,when your parents change, when your husband or wife changes, when your companychanges, when your location changes, when your money changes, when your status changes.No, your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs.Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don't be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses.Be a winner; build yourself and your reality. It's the way you face life itself that makes the difference.

Confession of God Slave: The Crying Heart

Curious am i

i ask my ego

for what its desires are

"being king of the world and everything!"

it answered

so i asked my nafs for its desires

"women and worldly pleasures!"

that's what it answered to me

then i asked myself for what my desires are

"virgin maidens and all heavenly pleasures!"

is what i answered

so i turned away from them all

and turned towards my heart

"what are your desires?"

"only desire,and that is God"

that's what it replied to me

so i asked again

"is that all?"

so it said to me,

"yes,that is enough"

so i asked it where is God or where i can find Him

then it replied,

"show me where there is no God ,then i'll show you where He is"

i asked it what it meant by that

it replied,

"if everything needs God Help,then show me a thing where it doesn't need His Help"

so i told it that everything need His help

"then there is where God is"

i asked it how can i meet God

it replied,"By being His slave"

so i asked it,"why are you not with God?"

it replied,"because you are blocking my way!"

"how?"i questioned

"because you have your own will!"

"throw it away! so that i can be with Him,my Beloved!"

it answered with a raging voice

so i asked it how can i throw away my own will

it says,"by being as humble as ash and by seeking knowledge and by loving"

so i looked into the mirror and saw a lustful boy

then i looked in to His entire creation especially mankind

each different one of them have their own lustful desires

then i looked at their common thing

which is the heart

the only thing with no shape and size,nor titles and reputation

and i heard every heart screaming for Allah

some are relax,yet some are not

depends on who their owners are

some are crying while some are laughing

so now i am asking You my Lord

through Your Divine Mercy,

Beloved Muhammad [s],

please take us all to Your Ocean of Mercy and Divine Love!

Confession of God Slave:Love or Lust?

Love came from God

While Lust came from the devil

Love is wonderful

While Lust is not

Woe onto those who said Love are hurtful

For they have yet to taste true love

Love is an eternity pleasurable thing

It can not harm the lover nor the beloved

But lust is a hurtful thing

For its pleasures are only temporary

People complains on how they were hurt went they are in love

What liars are they for they have yet to taste true love

For what they thought is love was actually lust

Love is one of the purest thing in the world

It what makes the Wolrds go around

The reason that every atoms are vibrating

For their love for the Divine is uncontrolable,

While lust is other wise
Love is God,

For He is the Most Loving.

The Blessed Womb of a Mother

aslmkm wr wb.

Lastly,the greatest blessings and honour for a women is that every human souls began their lives in their holy wombs,every time that she gave birth to a new born baby,her entire sins will be forgiven.Womb is one of the most purest place and the holiest place in this world,and that's one of the reason why all life began in the womb of a mother.

There was a famous orientalist who went everywhere asking questions, never satisfied with the world religions that he had studied. He came to my Master Grandshaykh Abdullah Daghestani and said, “I feel as if I am catching air. I find myself knowing more than the rabbis and priest and Islamic scholars that I questioned. I am finally coming to you and ask you for an answer. If you do not give it to me, I am going to remain without belief for the rest of my life.” And he said, “Show me God.”

My(Shaykh Hisham) teacher said:

O my son, why do you feel that you are only catching air? If you take that seed of a fruit and plant it and water it, you will find a green sprout coming out after thirty or forty days, and if you look for the original seed in the ground you will not find it anymore. If you come back after thirty years, you will find a large tree giving fruit to everyone. If you put an egg under a chicken for twenty-one days, the inner egg disappears, only a shell remains, and a chick will come out. The sperm that Allah allows to nest in the mother’s womb, a holy place, undergoes a similar seclusion for a period of nine months to disappear completely and come out as a new generation.

God has chosen a sacred place to send His first light to humanity: the mother’s womb. For that reason women are highly honored by God. He chose them, not men to carry that light. Love in women, therefore is ninety-nine times stronger than in the hearts of men. If women bring only one more part of love in their heart, women vanish in the love of God. They have been more honored than men because they carry God’s light in their womb. Yet they suffer tyranny and oppression everywhere in this life, but Allah never accepts that women be mistreated. He loves them more for it and the first people to go to paradise are women. This is Allah’s Will from the beginning.

Pearls And Coral 2
Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani

also it is narrated in a Hadith by Abu Hurairah [ra]

The Apostle of Allah [s] once reported:

Allah [swt] created the world,and when He had completed it,the womb of the mothers rose up and proclaimed:"I am the spiritual station whoever seeks refuge in You from separation and division".

Allah responded:Yes,you are this exalted station.I will unify Myself with those who are unified with you,and I will veil Myself from those who reject you.Are you content with My Decision?

"Yes,I am fully content,"mystic motherhood replied.

The messenger of Allah [s] then commented:

Recite with sincerity these blessed words from the Holy Book if you with to avoid separation and division:"Would anyone invested with genuine authority cause disorder on earth or sever the sacred ties of kinship?Those who act this way are chastened by Allah with spiritual deafness and blindness.Why do these persons fail to meditate on the Quranic teachings? Are there locks on their hearts?"

i got that hadith from ibn arabi's book 'mishkat al-Anwar' which is translated to english version,and it did not give any information on that ayat,so if anyone knows which verse that ayat came from,please do share with us.pretty please.thanks!

until now,hope we'll be better this year than last year.amiin.

About Struggling

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a
small opening appeared. He sat and watched the
butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its
body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop
making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten
as far as it could, and it could go no further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took
a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit
of the cocoon.

The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a
swollen body and small, shriveled wings.

The man continued to watch the butterfly because
he expected that, at any moment, the wings would
enlarge and expand to be able to support the
body, which would contract in time.

Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the
rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body
and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.

What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not
understand was that the restricting cocoon and
the struggle required for the butterfly to get
through the tiny opening were Allah's way of
forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into
its wings so that it would be ready for flight
once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in
our lives. If Allah allowed us to go through our
lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us.

We would not be as strong as what we could
have been. We could never "fly"!

I asked for Strength.........
And Allah gave me Difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for Wisdom.........
And Allah gave me Problems to solve.

I asked for Prosperity.........
And Allah gave me Brain and Brawn to work.

I asked for Courage.........
And Allah gave me Danger to overcome.

I asked for Love..........
And Allah gave me Troubled people to help.

I asked for Favours.........
And Allah gave me Opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted ........
I received everything I needed!
