Solat: A Reminder of A Greater Purpose

There are days when you dont feel like praying. When your soul feels dark and your heart feels down. 

Those are the days when you need to pray. Those are the days when you need it most. 

And if you find the strength to bow before your Lord in those days, you have defeated a big part of your nafs and taken a huge step towards your Lord. 

So pray no matter what. Lead your heart to prayer and one day your heart will lead you to prayer.

Importance of Sending Durood on our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

An essential thing that a large portion of the Muslim community disregards or does not realize in a time of their lives is developing the habit of sending Durood on Allah's last Prophet (SAW).

A Dayooth is the man who doesn’t have protective jealousy of the women he is in care of.

He is the one who does not bother to protect her from the eager eyes of strangers. He is the man who is pleased by the admiring glances from stranger men toward his wife and sisters.

There is no angel who is close to Allah, no heaven, no earth, no wind, no mountain and no sea that does not fear Friday." - Ibn Majah

#SunnahFriday - Concealing Faults of Others

As Muslims, we must learn to conceal the secrets of others. The act of spreading to a third party what has been shared with you is highly frowned upon. It is sad that in today's society we are surrounded by people who do the direct opposite. They live to expose others and even go out of their way to dig out information on others.

#SunnahFriday - The Real Muslim

Muslims around the world do their utmost best to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW). He is the best example to follow. Islam is strictly against violence in any form, it is a religion that frowns on harming and oppressing people. As a matter of fact, an oppressor is cursed by Allah. A Muslim is a model citizen that is always in a constant quest to better himself. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was the embodiment of the above hadith. He did not seek revenge, did not return evil with evil but forgave and pardoned those who did the most horrific things to him. I would be giving a few examples.
