I don't speak nor understand Arabic,I'm willing to learn if i get the chance. I can however read the Quran. My problem is that whenever I'm praying with others like in taraweeh,there are so many people who cry while the imam is reciting the ayats. I never cry. I get a lil emotional because of the imam's voice but not because of my understanding of the meaning of what he's reading. Is this bad? Should I be crying? Someone also told me the other day that I don't cry because my heart is so dark

If you don’t understand then i guess its different, although i have heard of/seen many people cry without understanding. Allah knows the condition of your heart, but taraweeh shouldn’t be the only time you hear the Qur’an, you need to make an effort to listen to it while reading its translation. There are many videos on youtube with the translations, watch them attentively and see the effect it has upon you then judge yourself. Umar (ra) said that we should take account of ourselves before we are taken account of, the Qur’an is the criterion, you can measure a persons through it. 

And if you dont find yourself crying to the verses of Allah then know that it is the cure to the problem. Continue to listen and make dua that Allah softens your heart through it 

Final Ramadhan Reminder

With only a few days left, take a minute to reflect over your progress this Ramadhan. The Qur’an in a number of ayat mentions the Qur’an causing us to cry or to have other physical effects on our body. Allah says

"And they fall upon their faces weeping, and it (the Qur’an) increases them in humble submission." (17:109)

Do you cry when the Qur’an is being recited? If not ask yourself why. Have you been sincere with Allah this Ramadhan, have you turned back to him? Do you secretly plan to go back to the way you were before Ramadhan?

Brothers, have you really learnt to control your desires, to lower your gaze and avoid secret haram acts? Sisters, have you learnt to control your tongue and make sure that people are safe from it? Is the way you dress pleasing to Allah?
We need to question every aspect of our lives, we need to recognise our sins and sincerely repent. We don’t know if Layla-tul-qadr has past or not, but we do know that we have a few more nights in which Allah will continue to free people from hell.
This is a time to be honest with yourself, dont assume that just because the people around you do a certain act or dress a certain way that its acceptable in the eyes of Allah. Ramadhan is a time for change, and if you are not willing to take this opportunity to change, then you might fall into the group of people that the prophet (saw) made dua against, those who managed to witness Ramadhan and not be completely forgiven. Allah says

And they were not commanded except to worship Allah , [being] sincere to Him in religion, inclining to truth, and to establish prayer and to give zakah. And that is the correct religion.” (98:5)

These next few days can be the difference between heaven and hell for you, don’t let them simply slip away

Where are the takfiris and khawaji at?? You criticise them yet they do more good than you

why would criticising them equate someone to being a takfiri or khariji? just because they do some good things by flashing their cash doesnt make them good, they have some serious issues, and if they really wanted to help they could do a lot more than that

Part of me doesn't really care for Palestine. I'm thinking it's another Arab issue & has more to do with nationalism than religion. I'm kind of shocked to see so many Pakistanis,Somalis,Bengalis and many others obsessing over Palestine and they have ZERO clue when it comes to the shit and oppression that's taking place in their home lands. Am I evil? I do care about the innocent children that are being killed,it's very sad...but why am I expected to cry more and care more because it's Palestine?

I see where you are coming from in some ways but i disagree at the same time. and I dont think you are evil, we all have an indifference to the suffering of people around the world because we’ve been desensitised by constantly seeing people in certain parts of the world suffering and dying and now we’ve just accepted that as their reality.

theres no doubt that the land of palestine should hold importance in our hearts because it has Masjid Al-Aqsa, and the land of sham in general has a special status in the deen, however the blood of a Muslim is more sacred to Allah than the Ka’ba, so the killing of Muslims where ever they are should be a big deal to us, but we’ve even started to believe subconsciously that our blood is worth less than the average person, which is why we would probably be more shocked to hear that a bus in london crashed killing dozens than hearing that a few hundred muslims have been killed.

I dont claim to know much about whats going on anywhere, i know bits and bobs, the palestine thing does seem to have nationalistic aspects to it and its very true that there are so many muslims out there who have no clue about the drone strikes, or the night raids, or the massacres happening in their own countries but they seem to be completely up to date with the current israel palestine conflict, which is stupid but like i said in that other post, most of the ummah suffers in silence so some people just dont know, and others just jump on whatever the current hype is. 

However putting all that aside, the prophet (saw) taught us that the one who calls towards nationalism isnt one of us. Whether a Muslim is killed in Somalia or Sri lanka or Palestine or any other country should make no difference to me, a muslim is a muslim. And i think this is one of our biggest issues. The Arabs get more attention when it comes to their suffering which makes others have some resentment towards them because “their people” arent getting the same help or attention. idk man, nationalism is a disease which we need to sort out

I love my Muslim brothers and sisters wherever they are but I think its sad that even as a Muslim community theres a hiarchey of the lives of Muslims. Its good to make duas for your brothers and sisters in Palestine and to support them in any way possible but dont forget that there are other Muslims out there who are being locked away with no trial, tortured and killed all in silence just because they say that Allah is their Lord.
Dont forget that they have the exact same right over you as your Palestinian brothers, don’t forget about them just because the people around you and the media have.

First somali society event #macawiis #somali

I reblogged this once with comment and this has some how made it to my dash again so I’m going to leave the same comment:what exactly was the point of the 2 white guys wearing the macawiis? could they not have worn their own shit? “first somali society event” more like yet again create events for white people to feel cultured for a day…I’m not with this bs and those 2 somali guys do not respect themselves

bro i dont get why you (and others) feel the need to make all of these assumptions about something you have absolutely no knowledge of other than what youve seen in a single picture which just happened to appear on your dash. Why do so many people online just feel the need to voice their extremely important opinions when ever they get a chance to? Its not islamic, nor wise to make an judgement before you have all the information (which if you asked, i would have gave). 
Anyways, seeing as you felt the need to reblog this twice i’ll give you a quick explanation of how this picture came about. First of all, Im the only somali in the pic, the other guy is yemeni. Secondly it was at the “first somali society event” which we held at our uni, where me and some other guys agreed to wear macawiises (the yemeni guy had one of the yemeni style ones which he wore) however the other guys all backed out and so i was the only left. Then bare people got these two miskiin guys (which i just met) to wear it (and if i was in their situation, being asked to wear someones cultural clothes at an event you were asked to come to then i probably would have as well because you dont want to look rude) and then we were told to go outside and try to get more somalis to come in which is when someone asked us to pose for a picture and hence this picture. Not everything white people do is evil and I do respect myself too
