Take a minute before you sleep to talk to Allah in salah, even its just one raka’ah of witr. Talk to Allah in your sujood, tell Him about your fears, complain to him about your problems no matter how big or small (Allah’s the only one who will never think they are stupid and who will always understand and be able to help), build a relationship with your creator and remember that you will soon return to him.

Salam Musab! I used to follow you forever ago (2/3 years ago) before I left tumblr. Hope all is well! I remember you were memorizing the Quran before I left? How has that been going? You were always encouraging me with memorizing too. But life kinda took over with my studies and it quickly dropped away. I now live with a hafidh who also has ijaza sanad in tajweed. Under her guidance I have started again. Anyway, it reminded me of you so I thought I'd just check you blog again after so long :)

Ok, forget the last one. I just clicked your about me and seems you finished memorizing the Quran last year, mashaAllah wa alf mabrook!!! :D I’ll get there too, one day inshaAllah. I’m so happy for you right now. This really has made my day :) May Allah preserve you and continue to make you an asset to the ummah. Ameen!

Wa alaikum salam! Its nice to hear from you again (even though i dont know who this is) it always puts a smile on my face when i read messages like this so thanks for taking your time to check up on me :D

Im doing well Alhamdulillah, I hope you are doing good too! And its amazing how Allah facilitates these things for us, may Allah make the Qur’an easy for you, grant you sincerity and reward you and your friend for your efforts.

Yeah i finished last may Alhamdulillah, so make dua that Allah allows me to perfect it. And ameen, may Allah give you the same and more :)

I guess i should have added the evidences for what i said in that last answer lol.

So the first point i raised was that i did not know with certainty if islam did prescribe hatred towards them, however part of Tawheed is hatred for shirk and its people and the evidence for this is the saying of Allah

"Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrahim (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people, “Indeed, we are disassociated from you and from whatever you worship other than Allah . We have denied you, and there has appeared between us and you animosity and hatred forever until you believe in Allah alone” ” (60:4)

And I said that this hatred is not the same as what we commonly know as hatred and so it should be studied further (so that you dont go around acting crazy and evil towards all non muslims)

The next point was me saying that i have experienced their hatred and treacherous nature first hand and i had the chance to see many of the ayahs in reality for myself (like them calling Allah stingy, then saying Allah is poor and they are rich, them bragging about killing Isa and slandering Maryam (as) etc) and that the Qur’an says this of them however they are not all the same as some are good people. The ayat for this are:

And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them. But pardon them and overlook [their misdeeds]. Indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.” (5:13)

You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah “ (5:82)

They are not [all] the same; among the People of the Scripture is a community standing [in obedience], reciting the verses of Allah during periods of the night and prostrating [in prayer].” (3:113)

And i concluded by saying that some of the ayat might seem harsh but there are wisdoms behind them as Allah knows his creation best and asked for specific ayahs of the Qur’an which the anon had questions about so that i could look into them for the anon.

Whats there to disagree with?

Why does Islam hates Jewish people? There are many verses in the Quran where God talks about them and that they shouldn't be trusted etc. I don't understand:(

The hate that you find islam prescribes in some cases is not the same as what we commonly think of when we hear the word hate, but im not sure if i would say that islam hates jews in either sense so im not going to comment on that.

However the Qur’an does say that they will be the most severe towards us in hate and that they will be treacherous but they are not all the same as some are good, and having worked with jews for a year, i had first hand experience with their treacherous behaviour and their hatered. I got to see pretty much every ayah of the Qur’an which talks about them in real life through them and it explained so much, some of the ayahs might seem harsh but they all have good reasons behind them.

Maybe you can pick specific ayahs and i can try to get an explanation for you?

What I mean was if I did the same sin repeatedly and wanted to make tawba for it all do I have to have all the times I did it in mind or can I make tawba in general for all the times I did that sin?

you can make tawba in general, you don’t have to recall every time you did sinned

A Muslim girl that is don't know said in a class about Islam that she's Muslim but believes some things are out of date. I feel like maybe she feels like that about some interpretations about the Quran perhaps but for some reason I fear for her because is that a sin on her? I don't know how to advise her since I don't know her at all but I do care since she IS my sister in Islam

theres no one way to give dawah so i can’t tell you exactly how to go about it. Sometimes confronting them about it works, and sometimes you have to use a more subtle and indirect approach. Try to get to know her and see which way would be best. See what beliefs she thinks are out of date and try to tackle them in the best way inshaAllah

Also, continue to make dua that Allah guides her

Anonymous asked:

To make tawba do we have to remember all the sins? Or can we make repentance in case we did a major sin and I intend to not do it? Sorry if this isn't clear

Sorry for the really late response. 
I dont really get your question but you don’t need to remember all your sins in order to repent, you can make a general repentance

Everyone who dies fighting/ is killed is not a shaheed, we throw this term around too lightly these days and give everyone this highest honour as if we are the ones who accept deeds. We can’t even say a person is a mu’min (we can’t even say that we ourselves are mu’mins) so how can we testify to a person being a level far higher than that?
We can hope that a person died as a shaheed but at the end of the day, only Allah knows.

Aren’t you shaheed if you were murdered?

i dont know if simply being murdered makes you a shaheed, but even if that was one of the ways which did make you a shaheed not everyone who died in this way would be one. Even the people who are killed in jihad aren’t all shaheeds, they’re intention comes into it. And the lifestyle of the people who died would come into whether or not they died as a shaheed. Imagine a munafiq or someone who didnt pray died in one of these ways, they wouldn’t be a shaheed.

Basically only Allah knows the condition of people after their death, we cant go around calling them a shaheed when we have no way to confirm that

igaleexo batil is falsehood, like you have people out there die doing things opposite to what the deen has brought and then people are like “He died shaheed MashaAllah” -_-

zainablessa its so annoying, like you even hear some people saying that guy who set himself on fire and started the arab spring was a shaheed… like people should make dua that hes not gone to hell, hes definitely not some shaheed

We can’t even say a person is a mu’min (we can’t even say that we ourselves are mu’mins) so how can we testify to a person being a level far higher than that?
