This post is so random…I was thinking right now how i started a lecture and didn’t completely finish it. I got started on Yahya Abdel Ibrahim’s lecture on the scholars and kind of drifted from listening to. Just tonight, I found a link to M.A lecture on perished nations. Dude, its pretty cool. Alhamdulilah. I got to listening to Juhany’s An-nisa again, there is a part that has ghamadi reciting a part of an-nisa for him….its really interesting bc one time i really went nuts on Taha by ghamadi (now for weeks its been Anfal by Jibreen) and prior to that i was listening to juhany..so later when i went back to juhany’s an-nisa i realized “dude, thats ghamadi dubbed in there for juhany” But anyway, beside the point that one qari just randomly comes in and fills in a part..is the part that he fills in. There is this beautiful verse, that just M.A mentioned in his lecture on perished nations…its the part in an-anisa where Allah says ”

Inna Allaha la yaghfiru an yushraka bihi wayaghfiru ma doona thalika liman yashao waman yushrik biAllahi faqadi iftara ithman AAatheeman

4:48 Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgiveth anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin Most heinous indeed.

Inna Allaha la yaghfiru an yushraka bihi wayaghfiru ma doona thalika liman yashao waman yushrik biAllahi faqad dalla dalalan baAAeedan

4:116 Allah forgiveth not (The sin of) joining other gods with Him; but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this: one who joins other gods with Allah, Hath strayed far, far away (from the right).

Its actually cool, that Allah talks about not setting partners with Him in An-nisa in like two verses that are so close to one another in text and have the same wording except for the last part. Gotta see the arabic to know what i mean. Subhana’Allah, i love the sound of An-nisa. I’d post my notes from the lecture but i wrote it in my Ilm book by hand and don’t want to type it up.

Our iman and stuff is always shifting and changing. Its crazy, someday are so high up you think this is soooo cool, “man i wish everyday is like this” but the reality is, everyday isn’t like that. Someday its down rotten..crappy…and someday…its like when spring comes and all the dirt and coldness of winter goes away and in its place a new time frame. Alhamdulilah. And yeah, if everyday was emanrush/high day then life would not really be a test. Dude, a test indeed. Subhana’Allah. We are all being tested in different ways and some more than others and all tested with various things. Kind like that saying from the lecture “what is a fitnah for one group of people may not be a fitnah for another group of people” So, it is either that you survive it and are stronger in your eman or your test becomes hard and drops your iman a notch. May Allah protect us all and keep us on the straight path and May He the most merciful grant us mercy in our time and our lives as a whole.

On a side note my little M munchkins who call me maacalin, are now flying through juz tabaraak and i haven’t made it to yaseen yet. Its a bit depressing that they are keeping up with their stuff and I have fallen behind. May Allah make me not like the example of the candle –who gives light–teaches and gives–but yet burns itself in the process- basically benefiting others but burning myself in the process. May Allah grant me towfeeq and bless me in my efforts and time. May Allah answer my duas and make things easy for me and not you (kidding), May Allah make things easy for all of us out there.
