‘وعليّ جمْعُ الحطب…’ ♥

أجملُ المبادرات هي تلك التي نقدّمها ونحنُ في أوج قوّتنا، كنتَ أباً، أو زوجاً، أو مسؤول دائرة أو رئيس جامعة، أو قائداً لعشرة، في محاولتك أن تكون لك يد لإنجاز مَهمات في حياتك اليومية تقطفُ بعض ثمرات السعادة وأنت تساهم بعملها، تساهم في أكلة تطبخها لك أمّك/ زوجك فتحضّر لها ما تطلب، أو أنّك تجمعُ الملفات المطلوبة مساعداً أصغر موظف لديك، غير مكترثٍ لما قد يُقال عنك، أو أنّكِ تساهمين بأعمال البيت التي لا تنتهي- مع اخوتك، فتأخذين حُصّتك في ترتيب غرفة أو إعداد الضيافة أو جلي الأطباق، دون انتظار نداء أمّك لفعل كذا وكذا … فالله يكره أن يرى عبده متميّزاً عن أقرانه! فتدرّب نفسك على هذا الخلُق مرّة بعد مرّة حتى يصح جزءاً من ذاتك فيُحبّك مَن حولك ويلتف حولك مَن حولك فتصبح شامة بينهم وهو عزُّ لحالك في الدنيا، وذكرٌّ لك في ديوان الله، وسندٌ لضعفك عند الحساب، فلستَ أقل من غيرك احتياجاً للأجر …
وفي ذلك فليتنافسُ المتنافسون.

Who Will Be The Next Family .. ? #LestWeForget #Gaza

Can’t believe it has been three years now since the ‘israeli’ aggression happened summer 2014. Like today, my family and I were still at our friends house (we had to leave our house after being damaged for three times) going to a ‘safer’ place. It was the third day of eid holiday and of course it was #eid_shaheed as everyone described it. Sisters had to stay at home and few men went to pray eid salah. Two days later Rafah massacre happened and there were about 50 shaheeds! It was the 26th day of the aggression, and we didn’t know that it will last for another 15 days! So many things happened that I just can’t write and describe.

Thinking of all this, I thank Allah that He blessed me with life after going through all such dreadful experiences. Here is a piece of writing I shared describing what we went through:

So flee!

When you feel that the earth closed in on you inspite of its vastness and your soul confined you, know that there is no refuge from Allah except in Allah!

Flee from people who wont help you practice your religion.
Flee from your bank that uses interest in their transactions.
Flee from relatives who will encourage you do what doesn’t please Allah.
Flee from your husband to obey Allah.
Flee from the country that won’t be a suitable environment for you or your family to practice your deen.

Flee from everything that might ruin your faith! It’s one life that we are living, so let it be as Allah ordered.

It just needs a decision to make your favourite moment in your life happen, but before,

You have to decide to flee, trusting that Allah will provide a way for you. You have to flee even if you still don’t know how it will happen, and say:

” No! Indeed, with me is my Lord; He will guide me.”
Quran as-Shu’araa 62

 

To Bilal (3) – The hidden mercy!

Ya Bilal,

Know that:

“Allah may purify the believers [through trials] and destroy the disbelievers.”
Quran 3: 141

And purification is to cleanse ones self from sins that we do in public and in secret.

Know that Allah wants to purify us so that He knows who are the true believers and who are the hypocrites.

“Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while Allah has not yet made evident those of you who fight in His cause and made evident those who are steadfast?”
Quran 3: 142

You will go through obstacles and tribulations and you will be tested with fear, health, life and family members, as in that what you are going through is a great trial from your Lord.

So be patient.

Ya Bilal, Allah said,

“[He] who created death and life to test you[as to] which of you is best in deed.”
Quran 67: 2

This worldly life is only a temporary enjoyment, and that the Hereafter is the home of permanent settlement.

Ya Bilal, as long as you are firm on the deen, you are in a great blessing, so thank Allah for it. And remember the hidden mercy in every trial you go through.

WasSalaam,

Isra
