NOT BAD FOR THE FIRST WEEK

Salam

Alhamdulillah, the first week of the class wasn’t that bad, I I’m registered to Department f Usuluddin Major in Usuliddin, my class starts at 9am till 2pm, it’s a 3 times a week class with 4 subjects.
My first day was a bit nervous cause I know it will be difficult for me to understand the Arabic Lectures specially those doctors who uses the “Amia” language.
I woke up on the first day of school at around 8am, I took a bath and light breakfast then I’m headed to University, the only girl I know in the university is Zainab, and Alhamdulillah she arrived earlier than me, we both searched for the room for our first class which is “Ulumul Qur’an”, the Doctor arrived a bit late but thank God he’s nice especially to us non-arab, he began to call our names and when my name called he said Maslama, I raised my hand and said Muslima and he smiled and said Ok Muslima. He gave us the name of the books which we need to study and also the reference books, I’m thankful because he speaks Fus-ha even though I couldn’t understand it all but most of it is loud and clear.
After the first subject we were headed to Tilawa class, but the Doctor didn’t arrived so we went to Cafeteria and ate some snacks, after the second class we have an hour rest so after Cafeteria we sat on the waiting chairs and that’s the time we met new friends, the first girl we met was Mishkat, she’s from South Africa who speaks fluent English and the best thing about her is she’s so funny, then we met Umm Rumman, Wa’d and Tamara, all of them are taking Sharia wal Qanun, but we have same subjects, like Mishkat, we can be classmates in 2 subjects (Sira an-Nabawiyya and Madkhal ila al-fiqh al-Islamie), Wa’d (Ulumul Quran and Madkhal ila al-fiqh al-Islamie) and last Tamara (Madkhal ila al-fiqh al-Islamie).
Today was the second day of class, and the teachers were complete, I met my Tilawa teacher and oh my God! She’s so pretty… she speaks in Mix Amia and Fus-ha, and the other teacher also came but he doesn’t speak Fus-ha, so I need to read very carefully the book cause that is the only thing I have to do to understand the subject he’s teaching.
But all in all I feel very happy that my first week wasn’t that Bad… Alhamdulillah!

Hadeeth of the Day

Narrated Abu Umamah (R.A): Allah's Messenger (S.A.W) said:

a) I guarantee a home in paradise for a person who gives up arguments and disputes even if he is on the truth.

b) And (I also guarantee) a home in the middle of paradise for a person who gives up lying (false statements) even while joking.

c) And (I also guarantee) a home in the highest part of paradise for a person who has a high standard of character.

-this Hadeeth is quoted by Abu Daud, At- Tirmidhi, Nasaee and Ibn Majah-

My Mother, My Best Friend


Aseer ibn Jaabir narrates: Whenever people would come from Yemen, Umar would ask them, "Is Uways Al-Qaranee amongst you?" until, one year, he met Uways. He said, "Are you Uways Al-Qaranee?" He said, "Yes."Umar continued, "From Muraad, then Qaran?"
He said, "Yes."
Umar then asked, "Were you once afflicted with leprosyand your skin healed except for a dirham's area?"Uways said, "Yes."
Umar finally asked, "Do you have a mother (that is alive)?"
He said, "Yes."
Umar then said, "I heard the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam say, 'Uways ibn Aamir will come to you with the delegations from Yemen, from Muraad, then from Qaran. He was once afflicted with leprosy and his skin healed except for a dirham's area. He has a mother, and he treats her kindly. If he was to ever swear by Allah (for something) Allah would fulfill his oath. If you can, request that he ask forgiveness for you." Umar then requested from Uways, "Ask forgiveness for me." And Uways Al-Qaranee did.

Allah ta'aala commanded us in the Qur’an:
And your Lord decreed that you should worship none but Him and that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both attain old age in your life, then do not say to them 'uff' (a word of disrespect), nor shout at them, rather address them in terms of honor / And lower for them the wing of submission and humility through mercy. And say, 'My Lord! Grant them Your mercy as they brought me up when I was small' (Al Isra' 17/23-24).
Ad-Daylami collected from Al-Husayn ibn Ali, that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said:
"If Allah knew any smaller than 'uff' (tsk) to be disespectful to parents, He would have decreed it to be haram!"
A man came to the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam seeking permission to go for jihaad. The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam asked him, "Are your parents alive?"
He said, "Yes."
He - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - said, "Perform jihaad (in you kind treatment) of them" (Bukhari).
If someone came to you today and offered you a free lunch, no doubt your response would be to smile, speak kindly to them, and reserve a special place in your heart for their memory. Why is it then that our parents receive only cold stares, harsh words and bitter treatment and they are who they are in our lives? For twenty or thirty years they fed us, clothed us, washed us, and showered their mercy on our soft skin. Their love for us never dies even if we do; it is a love that goes even beyond us, to our children and even our children’s children.

Dear brothers and sisters, we all have parents, whether they are with us or not, and many have not understood the severity of their position in our lives and their right to be respected and revered. Today I want to remind you and I of the true position of our parents, may Allah have mercy on them all.
Birr al-waalidayn is a characteristic of the mu'min. Al-Hasan Al-Basree defined it saying, "Al-birr is to obey the parents in everything that they ask so long as it is not to disobey Allah. Uqooq is to disown your parents, denying them all of your goodness."
By the ijama' of the 'ulama, being respectful and obedient to one’s parents is fard. Ibn Hazm said, "(Obeying ones parents) is Fard!" and he quoted the verse:
And your Lord decreed that you should worship none but Him and that you be dutiful to your parents.
To better understand what is meant by birr al-walidayn (kindness to parents), the scholars set the following conditions for one to follow:
One: He should place the pleasure of his parents above the pleasure of anyone else, including himself and his wife and kids – everyone. Two: He should obey them in everything they command or forbid, whether it agrees with his desires or not, so long as they do not command the disobedience of Allah.

Three: He should present them with everything he feels they desire, whether they ask for it or not. He should present it with kindness and mercy, understanding that no matter what he does he will always have some shortcomings in fulfilling the true kindness that his parents deserve.
Allah's love comes when our parents love us. And Allah's anger comes when our parents are angry with us. Ibn Abbas radi Allahu anhu said, "There are three things that will not be accepted if its mate is not fulfilled." And he mentioned,

Thank Me (Allah) and your parents…(Luqman 31/14)

Ibn Abbaas continued, "Thus whoever thanks Allah and is not thankful to his parents, Allah will not accept from him."

The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said:
"The pleasure of Allah is from the pleasure of the parents, and the anger of Allah is from the anger of the parents."
Let us think about how many of us treat our parents. We shy away from them when they may need something. We never visit if we are away from them. In fact, many people dispose of their parents in retirement homes. And when an argument ignites between our parents and us, many of us shout at them as if we were arguing with our evilest enemy. May Allah protect us all.

Compare this to those that came before us. Dhibyaan ibn Ali At-Thowree radi Allahu anhu used to travel with his mother to Makkah. There, in the scorching heat, he would dig a little pool and fill it with cool water. Then he would turn to his mother and say, "Ummi, sit in this water to cool yourself."

For many of us, our friends are more precious to us than our mother and father. Forgetful we are of the time a man came to the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam and asked him who is more worthy of his dear companionship. He – sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam – said, "Your mother!" The man asked again and again, and the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam replied, "Your mother! Your mother!" Until on the fourth time he - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - said, "Your father."
Today, when the common question is asked, "Who is your best friend?" How many people would say, "My mother!" But this is how the question should be answered and implemented.

What pleases our parents comes before everything, so long as it is not in disobedience of Allah. The scholars understood this and set the example for us. Haywah bin Shurayh radi Allahu anhu, one of the imam's of our ummah, used to give classes in front of his home. During the class, his mother would call him to feed the chickens. He would stand up, leave the halaqa, and go feed the chickens. We all want Allah to accept from us; we would all like to enter Paradise. Look down dear brothers and sisters, and you will find paradise at the feet of your mother.

Narrated Ahmad and An-Nasaa'ee, from Mu'aawiyah ibn Jaahimah As-Sulamee: My father, Jaahimah radi Allahu anhu went to the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam and asked, "O Messenger of Allah, I would like to go out and fight for the sake of Allah, and I have come to you for advice."

The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam asked him, "Is your mother alive?"

He said, "Yes."

"Then stay near her," advised the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, "For at her feet is Jannah!"

On the other side, making our parents sad or even making them cry is one of the many ways to earn Allah's anger. Imam Ahmad narrates, from Abdullah ibn 'Amr ibn Al-Aas radi Alllahu anhu: A man came to the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam to give him his pledge of allegiance. He said, "I have come to pledge allegiance to you for hijrah and I have left both my parents behind crying."

The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam commanded him, "Go back, and the same way that you made them cry, make them laugh."

Ibn Umar radi Allahu anhu said, "Making ones parents cry is amongst the uqooq, a major sin!"

Shaykh al-Qaasim once said, "Subhan Allah! How can we leave our parents sobbing, tears that the throne of Allah shakes for, tears that unsettle the angels in the heavens, and then we claim that we want to go for jihaad so that Allah will be pleased with us? Go back and make them happy with your visit as you made them sad by your departure. If they laugh and are pleased with you, Allah will be pleased."

During the funeral of his mother, Al-Haarith Al-Aklee radi Allahu anhu weeped. When asked for the reason of his tears he said, "Why should I not cry when one of my doors to Paradise has now closed?"

We reap what we plant. In a far away land, a long time ago, a boy was born blind. His widowed mother, the good Muslimah that she was, did not lose hope in her du'a and pray she did, continuously. A few years later, the boy's sight returned, alhamdulillah. Soon after she realized that her village was not befitting for her son to excel in Islamic education, so with her son in hand they migrated to Makkah. There she saw that he was being instructed in Qur'an and Hadith, the latter becoming the young man's focus. He went out far and wide collecting Hadith and compiled a Hadith book that sits next to the Qur'an in authenticity forgetting not his mother who had raised him well. His mother named him Muhammad ibn Isma'il, and many of us know him today as Al-Imam Al-Bukhari!

Dear brothers and sisters, how often is it that a farmer plants wheat and it comes out as a sunflower? You may say, never! For how can someone farm the seed of one plant and expect some other plant to grow. It just does not happen. Similarly, some parents leave their children waddling in the mud of television, music, movies, and disbelieving friends. Then, when the child reaches grade 12 and asks to go to the prom with his girlfriend, or when he enters university and stops praying, or when he gets married to a kafir and himself becomes one, then the parents say, "What happened?"

Brothers and sisters, it is the harvest of what we planted. If we do not raise our children to be obedient, where do we expect them to learn? If we do not practice Islam ourselves, who will be our children's example? How do you teach a child to wake up for Fajr, when he sees his own father and mother sleeping in, day after day? You may ask: how do I raise my children to be good Muslims, obedient to their parents? Consider the following:

Firstly: One should discipline their children throughout their youth. Hisham ibn Abd Al-Malik missed a son of his during Jumah one week. When he met him later, he asked him, "Why did you miss Jumah?"

His son replied, "My donkey couldn't make the trip."

His father then said, "Couldn't you have walked!" For an entire year after that, Hisham ibn Abd Al-Malik made his son walk to Jumah.

Secondly: The piety of the father and mother reaches the children. In the Qur'an, Allah recalls for us the story of Khidr, and how he rebuilt a wall for 2 orphans.

And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town. Under it was a treasure belonging to them and their father was a righteous man…(Al Kahf 18/82)

Look at how Allah protected these orphans because of the piety of their father. In tafseer, it is said that it was in fact because of the piety of their grandfather seven generations back! Sa'eed ibn Jubayr said, "I often lengthen my salah for the sake of my son; perhaps Allah may protect him (because of it)."

In conclusion, let us reflect on the virtue of respecting our parents:

It is one of the greatest things that we can do. In Bukhari and Muslim, from Abdullah ibn Mas'ood radi Allahu anhu, a man asked the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, "What deed is most beloved by Allah?"

He - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - said, "Salah on time."

The man asked, "And then?"

He - sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam - said, "Respecting and revering ones parents."

He asked, "And then?"

"Jihaad for the sake of Allah."

It is a means by which our sins are forgiven. When Allah commanded in the Qur'an:

And We enjoined on man to be dutiful and kind to his parents …

The next verse tells us:

…They are those from whom We shall accept the best of their deeds and overlook their evil deeds. They shall be amongst the dwellers of Paradise…(Al Ahqaf 46/15-16)

Respecting our parents will lead us to Jannah! In Muslim, Abu Hurayrah radi Allahu anhu narrated that he heard the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam say, "May he perish! May he perish! May he perish!"

It was asked, "Who, O Messenger of Allah?"

The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, "He whose parents attain old age in his life - one or both of them - and he does not enter Paradise (because of his goodness towards them)."

And when our parents are gone, the goodness towards them does not end.

Malik ibn Rabi'ah Al-Saa'idi narrated: We were sitting with the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam when an Ansari man came and asked, "O Messenger of Allah, is there anything left from my birr to my parents that I should present to them after their death?"

The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, "Yes, four things: Pray and ask forgiveness for them. Fulfill their pledges. Be kind to their friends. And maintain the ties of kinship that come from only their direction. That is what is left from your birr to them after their death."

Ahmad, Abu Dawood, and Ibn Maajah reported that Aamir ibn Abd Allah ibn Az-Zubayr radi Allahu anhu said, "My father died, and for an entire year I did not ask Allah for anything except that He forgive my father."

Remember dear brothers and sisters as you meet your parents today, the words of Rasul Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, "Fa feehima fa jaahid!" – Do Jihad in (your kind treatment of) your parents.

O Allah, forgive us and our parents, and reward them with the finest reward. O Allah, elevate their position in the hereafter and this dunya; make that which befalls them an expiation for their sins. O Allah, grant them residence in Firdaus, the highest level of Jannah, with the Prophets, the Siddeeqeen, and the Martyrs.

Ameen.

Emotions

Salaam..

I missed my Blog and I missed posting, I didn't post for 3 weeks because of what happened to me and the people around me, it's a mixed emotions this past weeks for the reason of:

1. Exam Days!
The Problem day came. Our exam started last Feb. 01 and ended last Feb. 04, Alhamdulillah it went well.

2. My Nephew got sick.
Abdulmuizz my eldest nephew was admitted at Notre Dame Hospital last week and stayed there for 4 days, Doctor's finding was he got UTI and Typhoid Fever, but Alhamdulillah he discharged last Monday Feb. 08, and now he's back in School.
Abdulmuizz on his high fever
3. 24 with Friends.
Last Feb. 06 was my 24th Birthday, Alhamdulillah! don't worry i'm a Muslim so I didn't Celebrate nor asked my Friends for gifts (hehe), that day was one of the happiest day this year that i will never forget because two of my closest friends find free time for us to be together, I haven't talk to Inas personally for 4 years we only communicate through phone (sms, call), She completed her Degree as a Social Worker at Mindanao State University in Marawi City which is i guessed 5 hours drive from my town, so no time for me to visit her. The other friend of mine is Husna, she's a 3rd year IT student at AMA University in town but we rarely see each other due to class schedules.
Husna Lauban and Inas Mudathir

4. Aunt Died.
Inna lillahi wa Inna ilayhi Rajioon, my mum's elder sister died yesterday at the age of 90, a lonely day for our family especially for mum because my aunt who died was the only sibling of my mum left in town the other siblings of my mum lived far from us and we rarely see each other, lucky if we can meet them once a year.

5. Acceptance from University.
I've been applying for Scholarship in different Universities around the world for a long long time, Alhamdulillah the long wait is here, I've got the slot from one of the University abroad which i will tell u the full information on my next post.

that's all folks, may Allah protect us all.

Are you complaining?













"Tips to Maintain Concentration in Salaah"

1. Before standing up for Prayer, try to deal with all the minor urgent matters which demand your attention. If you are pressed by hunger, eat first; if you are pressed to attend to the call of nature, relieve yourself; if you are the parent of an infant, feed him or her, or keep him or her busy.


2. Perform your wudu' (ablution) well, paying due care and attention.


3. Approach the Prayer with zest and passion as if it is the most important task in your life. Actually the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)
taught us that we could do nothing in this world that could ever surpass Prayer in merit and excellence.


4. Visualize that in your Prayer you are going to have a special audience with Allah, Lord of the worlds, and that you are enjoying a direct communion with Him? This in fact is true.


5. Think of the Prayer you are performing as if it were the last Prayer of your life. In fact, it could very well be the last one, since no one is given a guarantee that he would live to perform another Prayer.


6. Picture the scene of the Last Day when people will be lined up into two groups, one destined for Heaven, and another for Hell, and ask yourself where you would be placed.


7. Focus your mind on what you are reading in your Prayer.


8. If, in spite of your best efforts, your mind is still wandering, seek refuge in Allah and bring your mind back to Prayer.


9. Pray to Allah and beg Him to grant you true the joy of concentrating in your Prayer and protection against the wanderings of your mind.

أذان

A reminder! This is something we tend to ignore on a daily basis.

The Holy Prophet Mohammad (SalallaAllahu Alehi Wasallam) said, stop doing everything during the
Azan even reading the Quran, (and repeat the Azaan with the Moazzin.) The person who talks during the Azaan will
not be able to say the Kalma-e-shahadat on his/her death bed. Plz try to pass
this message to more muslims as u can afford. Please send to other to know….

Azaan a miracle?
*Amazing as it sounds, but fortunately, for the Muslims of the world, it is* an established fact.
Have a look at a map of the world
And you will find Indonesia on the eastern side of the earth. The major cities of Indonesia are Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Saibil. As soon as dawn breaks on the eastern side of Saibil, at approximately 5:30 am local time, Fajar Azaan begins.


Thousands of Muazzins in Indonesia begin reciting the Azaan. The process advances towards West Indonesia .
One and a half hours after the Azaan has been completed in Saibil, it echoes in Jakarta . Sumatra then follows suit and before this auspicious process of calling Azaan ends in Indonesia, it has already begun in Malaysia ..

Burma is next in line, and within an hour of its beginning in Jakarta, it reaches Dacca, the capital city of Bangladesh . After Bangladesh , it has already prevailed in western India , from Calcutta to Srinagar .

It then advances towards Bombay and the environment of entire India resounds with this proclamation. Srinagar and Sialkot (a north city in Pakistan) have the same timing for Azaan. The time difference between Sialkot , Quetta , and Karachi is forty minutes, and within this time, Fajar Aazaan is heard throughout Pakistan .. Before it ends there, it has already begun in Afghanistan and Muscat .

The time difference between Muscat and Baghdad is one hour. Azaan resounds during this one hour in the environments of Hijaaz-e-Muqaddas (Holycities of Makkah and Madinah), Yemen , United Arab Emirates , Kuwait and Iraq .

The time difference
between
Baghdad and Alexandria in Egypt is again one
hour
.
Azaan continues to resound in Syria, Egypt, Somalia and Sudan during this hour.

The time difference between eastern and western Turkey is one and a half hours, and during this Alexandria and Tripoli (capital of Libya ) are located at one hour's difference. The process of calling Azaan thus continues throughout the whole of Africa. Therefore, the proclamation of the Tawheed" and "Risaalat" that had begun in Indonesia reaches the Eastern Shore of the Atlantic Ocean after nine and half hours.

Prior to the
Aazaan reaching the shores of the Atlantic, the process of "Zohar Azaan" has already started in east Indonesia, and before it reaches Dacca, Asr Azaan" has started.

This has hardly reached Jakarta one and half hours later, the time of "Maghrib" becomes due, and no sooner has "Maghrib" time reached Sumatra, the time for calling "Isha Aazaan" has commenced in Saibil! When the Muazzins of Indonesia are calling out "Fajar Azaan", the African Muazzins are calling the Azaan for Isha.

If we were to ponder over this phenomenon thoughtfully, we would conclude
the amazing fact that there is not even a single moment when hundreds of thousands of Muazzins around the world are not reciting the Azaan on the surface of this earth.

Subhaan Allah !!!

Even as you read this material right now, you can be sure there is
Azaan somewhere !!!

Allah said: "If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you."

If you are not ashamed, pass this message on...only if you believe.*


May Allah Be With You:

Thank You for this Email Sameer.

2010 I'm getting older

Alhamdulillah Allah the almighty gave me the chance to see and extend my life and reached the year of 2010, everybody's happy for this year and aiming for a better life, well not for me, coz when this year enter, the first thing popped-up in my mind is that WOW! I'm getting older!... yeah really i'm really getting older and afraid to breathe my last breath. I know that all of the people, animals and living things in this universe will soon be gone but i'm still afraid for the end of my time. One of the Ilmul Gayb is that human doesn't know when he'll die, what cause of his death and where he's going to die.

I think the right thing to do for the up coming years is to pray a lot and repent a lot, seek for his forgiveness and do good deeds and stay away from bad things.

Inshallah this February 6 is my 24th year living in this world as a true Muslim and will be a true Muslim till the end. ameen.
