So run away from dunya, Run to Allah.

When we rush through our salaats, when we rush back to this dunya, we miss out on the greatest beauty, and one of the greatest blessings ever bestowed upon mankind; and that is conversing with The One who loves you beyond your imagination. Yet when it comes to spending leisure time with people we love, we make the most of every moment, as if it is they, your peeps, who gave you life, who made you laugh in the first place.
Its a journey we embark on each time we enjoin ourselves with salaat. Its a journey… to Allah. So why dont we flee to Him, with our hearts, bodies and souls? Why dont savour each qiyam, ruku’ and every word of praise we utter before The One who is worthy of all praise? Why do we fail to acknowledge, with our hearts, bodies and souls, Whom exactly it is we stand before during salaat? And what if… what if the next salaat is your last?

"That beauty is not a thing you can acquire or consume. It is something that you just have to be. You cant eat beauty. You cant rely on how you look to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what fundamentally is beautiful, is compassion…"

"If you find dust on your Qur’an then cry for yourself and the condition that you’re in."


"Congratulations to those who leave the world before it deserts them, to those who build their graves before they enter them; and to those who please their Lord before they meet Him."
—Yahya ibn Mu’adh

…And general ignorance will spread.

Upon reminding another believer nowadays, you find that so many muslims have reformed the shari’ah so that it fits the likings of their lives and their own perspectives, so much that when you sincerely remind a muslim that music, or the very common ‘camel hump,’ are not allowed and not pleasing to Allah, they look at you as if you’re from planet Mars. You’re immediately marked as an ‘extremist.’
We forget, or rather honestly said; we ignore and overlook the fact that it is not Islam that has to fit in our lives. It is our lives that have to be modified and adjusted in order to fit the Islamic shari’ah.
Don’t redefine what’s wrong and what’s right, for the line between the two have already been drawn for you. You are not the Law- Giver, the Creator. You are not God.
And yes, music is haram. So is the ‘camel hump.’ And why? Well, there are many reasons to why, but even if there weren’t any, when Allah says it to be, it is.
look back at Adam and Hawa; cast from Eden to Earth because of an apple. Or take Iblis, who was formerly known as Azazil; he was an Imam; he was among the most beloved servants of Allah; but he went from being among those with the highest rank in creation to having lowest, simply because when told to ‘prostrate before Adam,’ he didn’t. He had other views on who was better than who.
Reflect upon the life of Prophet Abraham (a.s) and you’ll find that your view and my view do not count before the divine commandments, whether you understand them or not. Those rules and that boundary between the halal and haram were put by Al-Hakeem, the All- Wise. What counts, and what is expected, is that as a Mu’min (believer),
‘you hear and you obey.’ {Al Qur’an}

May Allah make us among those who fear Him and worship Him in the best manner. May we be not among those who are negligent, but obedient in His cause.
Allahumma ammen!

*According to the Qur’an, on the Last Day the Prophet (s.a.w) will say that his own people will have abandoned the Qur’an: “My Lord, my people treat this Qur’an as something to be ignored…” (Surat al-Furqan: 30)

*Near the establishment of the Hour there will be days during which (religious) knowledge will be taken away (vanish) and general ignorance will spread… (Bukhari)
