Bismillah,

Alhamdulilah, in yesterdays review session for Heavenly Hues, we spoke in depth concerning the guided as well as the misguided ones. We spoke about their characteristics and of their ending point. For both these groups of people, Allah speaks of how whatever ending they have it is a result of what their own hands of brought forth. Whatever good they did, they were doing it themselves and doing it for themselves and in the same for those who did bad.

Alhamdulilah, I came upon Salaah Bukhatir’s recitation of Surah Isra, and in it there is a verse that describes such a scenario as described above. ” In Ahsantum Wa In ahsantum…” Another point that is closely related that was mentioned in Al-huda, was the idea that the most successful of people think and have the end goal in mind. That is when they start out they percieve and think about how they would like to end up. Masha’Allah, truly something to reflect upon.

Mornings

Posted: February 12, 2009 in Ahh moments, Heavenly Hues, Quran

Bismillah,

Alhamdulilah, All praise is due to Ar-Rahman who has fashioned the ways and paths for His slaves. Subhana’Allah, I am always mesmerized by the events that take place everyday. Mornings are interesting and I always attribute my success in the dawn hours (fajr) to what if any success that may come later on in the day. I always tell myself that, and know it in my heart that the days that I wake up on time with my salaah as well as reading my adkaar after salaah as well as upon leaving the home, all of this and more makes an awesome day. Especially after leaving the home I stress on specific duas-in English (Oh Allah, make this day a day of khayr, where no shar and situations come about due to my departure of my home). And in Arabic (recitation of the Muwaiyaadan-powerful surahs to be read for protection from the evil with in our souls, evil of the people, and evil of the shaiteen that rome- awesome tafseer that I won’t forget..basically, the three Quls, and ayat Kursi). Alhamdulilah all this leads to a day of happiness and content with all that Allah has bestowed upon me. I remember in Heavenly Hues of the discussion and reminder of how happiness and all great situations come from Ar-rahman, and if we know the source then all we have to do is ask Allah for it! Its as simple as asking..subhana’Allah. In addition, to this is my source or what I believe to be sources of crappy days (i.e waking a tad bit late for fajr…eeeks! A big no no), not remembering adkhaar before leaving the house. These days are days that I avoid like the plague and make dua to Allah to keep me away from as its crappy all over, unrest in the heart-scratching in the heart, irritation and lots and lots of whispers of shaytaan.

All in all, the blessings of the morning hour are amazing! The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about it in various hadeeths.

1.) Blessings of working in the morning hours (story about a man who heard the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam state how blessed these times were, and thus woke up and started his business at that hour, and it by the will of Allah it flourished) { insert later}

2.) Blessings of recitation the Quran at the dawn hours {insert later}

3.) Blessing of salaah and adkhaar during fajr time, as something along the lines of having it witnessed by the angels (guardians) of the night and morning as they are making their transition. (insert later.)

Subhana’Allah, all in all I am forever grateful for the ni3ma that Allah has blessed us with in the night and the morning. Truly, the night and the day are both a reminder of Allah’s greatness in creating such a thing. I ask Allah to join all of us in Al-Firdous-Ala, wherein we may receive the joys of Jannah!

Progress: memorization awesome! Some lessons for me: Review is awesome-for other juzs, but not as refreshing or effective as memorizing and continuing on to newer surahs. I can feel it in the heart and the effects therein! Awesome blossom.

Bounties

Posted: February 1, 2009 in Ahh moments, Heavenly Hues

Bismillah,

All praise is due to Allah, who has given immense bounties to the weak, the strong, and everyone in between. Subhana’Allah, the heavenly hues class is truly a ni3ma from Allah. From this class I’ve seen what we’ve envision for our community come true. I’ve truly seen the bounties of Ar-Rahman apparent in everything an anything I’ve come into contact with in these last days. Allah is great! Last day tomorrow, and have so many gems flying around in my head, but overall the beauty of learning of Tafseer and just having this class come to town has been amazing. I cannot put into words the joys and happiness found in this class. I ask Allah to make all of us always in congregations such as the one I’ve described.

Till next time, may we all be joined in the markets of Jannah where we may meet upon coming fom our different ranks in Jannah. Allahuma Ameen.

Drawing board

Posted: January 26, 2009 in Ahh moments, Heavenly Hues, Quran

Bismillah,

All praise is due to Allah, the most High, the most gracious. Alhamdulilah, after every session or AlMaghrib seminar I am always reminded to add on to my ‘drawing board’. Meaning, I’ve got so many ideas, plans, things to do and not to do, basically overall improving the self. Subhana’Allah, one cannot never remain stagnant and we must either increase in iman or fall below from the state we are in. We must have new goals, new deeds to full-fill, great feats to accomplish.

Alhamdulilah, I’ve been thinking about teaching methods and effective ways for ‘all’ of my kids. The new, the old, the new-comers. I am also reminded of the self-meaning for myself, quran memorization, continuation of tafseer, all of etc. But subhana’Allah, as I told one dear sister of mine, it was when we truly take the time to teach others that we increase in our own iman, and build the self. Every week, while preparing for halaqah or my children, I must return back to the book of Allah and the sunnah of the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salaam. I must open the mushaaf-check for reference, and it is with these steps and actions that I am forever grateful to be surrounded by those who are truly carriers of my good deeds.

Stuff of life, mad memorization-from bottom to top. Awesome blossom.

Gem:
Those stationed in Al Araf (btw Jannah and Nar) will state:

Inna antharnakum AAathaban qareeban yawma yanthuru almaro ma qaddamat yadahu wayaqoolu alkafiru ya laytanee kuntu turaban

78:40…Woe unto me! would that I were (metre) dust.


May we not be of those who utter such statements but of those who are entered into Jannah without accountability and raised in ranks in this blessed abode.

Alhamdulilah, all praise is due to Allah, and I ask Allah to make me the likes of one who is only an open door to good and a closed door to evil.

Till next time, may we all be joined in that blessed abode wherein only those with pure hearts dwell. Ameen`
