“Here, I am”

All night, a man called “Allah”

Until his lips were bleeding.

Then the Devil said, “Hey! Mr Gullible!

How comes you’ve been calling all night

And never once heard Allah say, “Here, I am”?

You call out so earnestly and, in reply, what?

I’ll tell you what. Nothing!”

The man suddenly felt empty and abandoned.

Depressed, he threw himself on the ground

And fell into a deep sleep.

In a dream, he met Abraham, who asked,

“Why are you regretting praising Allah?”

The man said, “ I called and called

But Allah never replied, “Here I am.”

Abraham explained, “Allah has said,

“Your calling my name is My reply.

Your longing for Me is My message to you.

All your attempts to reach Me

Are in reality My attempts to reach you.

Your fear and love are a noose to catch Me.

In the silence surrounding every call of “Allah”

Waits a thousand replies of “Here I am.”

~ Rumi

SHAITAAN'S TRICKS to misguide you by making you BUSY

Are you Busy? " You be the judge!" ?

Satan says, "We can't keep Muslims from going to Mosque."

Satan says, "We can't keep them from reading their Quran and knowing the truth."

Satan says, "We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their Allah and his messenger Muhammad (s.a.a.w)."
Satan said, "Once they gain that connection with Allah, our power over them is broken."

Satan says, "So let them go to their Mosques; let them have their covered dish dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with Allah SWT and his messenger Muhammad (s.a.a.w)."

Satan says, "Distract them from gaining hold of their Allah and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"

Satan says, "Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds."

Satan says, "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow."

Satan says, "Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty lifestyles

Satan says, "Keep them from spending time with their children."

Satan says, "As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work!"

Satan says, "Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small voice."

Satan says, "Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive." "To keep the TV, VCR, CDs and their PCs( Facebook ) going constantly in their home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays music constantly." ... "This will jam their minds and break that union with Allah and his messenger Muhammad (s.a.a.w)."

Satan says, "Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers."

Satan says, "Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day."

Satan says, "Invade their driving moments with billboards."

Satan says, "Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products, services and false hopes."

Satan says, "Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands will believe that outward beauty is what's important, and they'll become dissatisfied with their wives."

Satan says, "Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night." ... Give them headaches too!

Satan says, "If they don't give their husbands the love they need, they will begin to look elsewhere." ... "That will fragment their families quickly!"

Satan says, "Give them story books to distract them from teaching their children the real meaning of Salat."

Satan says, "Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect on Allah's creation. Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies instead. "Keep them busy, busy, busy!"

Satan says, "And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences."

Satan says, "Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to seek power from Allah."

Worship without Charity Is Unacceptable to Allah

One day the Lord asked Jibrail " Oh Jibrail, had I made you a human being, how would you have worshipped Me?" " Oh Lord , cried the angel , "all secrets are open to You!" "Yes indeed" said the Lord, " but let My servants be aware that they do not know what I know." Jibrail then went on to say "I would worship your Divine essence in three ways: First by helping those in poverty. Second by covering up the guilt of sinners. Thirdly by quenching the thirst of the thirsty." The Exalted One said "It is because I knew this about you, that I made you My trusted agent for the transmission of my Revelations."
