Beautiful duas....

Dua is not just asking, it is a longing of the soul. It is
a daily admission of one's weakness before the Almighty.

It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than
words without a heart.

O Allah, make our love for You the most beloved thing to us,
and our fear for You the most fearful thing to us.

O Allah, Remove from us all worldly needs and wants,
by instilling a passion for meeting You,

O Allah, when You have given the people of the world the
pleasures of this world, give us pleasure in worshipping

O Allah, Please don't let us turn away from You, no matter
how many trials You test us with, let these difficulties
serve to make us close to You.

O Allah, grant us the best of company as our friends --
those who will inspire us to love and worship and obey You.

O Allah, grant us a heart that loves to obey You.

O Allah, shine Your light on any secret or unseen rebellion in our
hearts and destroy it before it takes root.

O Allah, guide us away from any pride, selfishness, jealousy,
hypocrisy, malice, and greed and make us uncomfortable with sins.

O Allah, penetrate our hearts with Your love and reverence today and always.

O Allah, make apparent to us the truth in any situation and let them not be
misled by falsehood.

O Allah, grant us the ability to make clear decisions and let us always be attracted
to good things that are pure, noble, true and just.

O Allah, guide us in making choices that please You.

O Allah, help us to taste the sweetness of walking with a humble spirit in obedience and
submission to You.

O Allah, grant us the wisdom to choose our words carefully and bless us with a generous
and caring spirit.

O Allah, we pray that we never stray from the path of deen and that You give us a future
filled with Your best promises.

O Allah, always keep us cleansed and pure from the evil Satan.

O Allah, keep us steadfast in establishing Salah and help us revere the Glorious Quran as
Your Word and Law and help us read it with understanding daily, let it be our source of light
and guidance, ameen.

Eid Mubarak!!!

InshaAllah we are almost there, may He accept all our ibadahs and duas, ameen. 

Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout.

Do you know why a Car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small?
Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. Look Ahead and Move on.

Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.

All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either.

Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamonds! If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!

Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says,
"Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!''

When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in Your Abilities.

A blind person asked a wise person "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"

When you pray for others, God listens to you, blesses you and them. Sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

WORRYING does not take away tomorrows' TROUBLES, it takes away today’s' PEACE.

Lesson of the day 1383

Ayahs of the day:
And so leave those who take their religion for play and amusement, whom the life of the world has deceived. Remind them that a soul is delivered to perdition by what it has earned; it has no protector but God, and no intercessor; and even if it pays every ransom, none will be accepted from it. [6: 70]

Hadith of the day:
The earth has been made for me (and my followers) as a place for praying and a means to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due. [Abu Dawood]
Wise quote of the day:
One who often thinks and reflects develops his foresight and vision. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the day:
One of the greatest faults of the tongue is lying, which is to state other than what is, whether by affirming what is not, or by denying what is.

Another great fault of the tongue is backbiting, which is for you to say things about your brother in his absence which he would have resented had he heard them. Backbiting is strictly forbidden.

Among the tongue's faults is tale-bearing, which is to inform each party of what the other said about him, so as to cause discord and sedition.

Of the tongue's faults is to insult a Muslim and offend him to his face, to mock and scorn a Muslim, or laugh at him in disdain. Also among the faults of the tongue are false oaths, false witness, cursing, making false promises, double talk, all other forms of repulsive or indecent speech, as well as disputing, arguing contentiously, competing for speech, frequent quarreling, and talking about that which does not concern them. These were all dispraised in numerous verses of the Qur'an and well known hadiths. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]

Food for thought:
When the believer is overcome by misfortune, only by repenting can he truly find a way out of his difficulties. All that we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts. Our thoughts, not our circumstances, determine how we feel. An absence of negative thought brings forth a positive feeling.
