|When I found Allah| Part 2 - -
Over the next couple of weeks, my interest in learning about Islam spiked. The concept of wearing hijab, that once seemed really difficult to me, began to pique my curiosity. I looked back at the time when I impulsively put on scarf in 5th grade cuz one of my bestfriend wore it at that time. Just as the scarf came on my head, it hastily left as well. I went back and forth between wearing it and removing it.
But at that time (2010) those things were starting to seem trivial and the commandment of my Lord, so for the first time I began asking questions like "why do we have to cover?" "Why don't men?" "Can't I just wear a wig, since that'd be covering my hair?" As silly as these questions may seem, they were the start of smth that would change my life completely.
I then started following modest fashion blogger and i remember asking them their experience as hijabi to which the response that stuck with me was," It will create barriers. Barriers between what is halal and haram. A barrier that will keep you safe." And with that i got a little more courage to take the next step. I began asking my non muslim friends if they would act differently if i start wearing the hijab, They told me, " You will always be Saima to us with or without it on. We will always support you." - -
Nur suresi. 31.ci aye. Mömin qadinlara de ki, (harama baxmayib) gozlerini aşagi diksinler ve iffetlerini qorusunlar. Qoy onlar görünənlər istisna olmaqla, zinetlerini (namehreme) gostermesinler, örtüklərini yaxasinin ustune salsinlar, zinetlerini erlerinden, yaxud atalarindan, yaxud erlerinin atalarindan, yaxud oz oglullarindan, yaxud erlerinin oğullarindan, yaxud qardaşlarindan, yaxud qardaşlarinin oğullarindan, yaxud oz bacilarinin oğullarindan yaxud oz (muselman) qadinlarindan, yaxud sahib olduğu kolelerden, yaxud ehtirasini itiren kisi xidmetçilerden, yaxud qadinlarin çilpaqligini hele anlamayan uşaqlardan basqasina göstermesinler; gizletdikleri zinet eşyalari bilinsin deye ayaqlarini (yere) vura-vura yerimesinler. Ey iman getirenler! Haminiz Allaha tövbe edinki, belke nicat tapasiz.
Al Baihaqi meriwayatkan dalam syu'ab al imam dari Ibnu as-sammak bahwasanya dia berkata, " manusia itu terbagi menjadi 3 golongan : pertama, golongan yang bertaubat dari dosanya membawa dirinya untuk menjauhi dosanya, dia tidak ingin kembali kepada keburukan yang pernah dilakukannya walaupun sedikit. inilah orang yang bagus.
kedua, golongan yang melakukan suatu dosa kemudian menyesal kemudian berbuat dosa lagi bersedih, kemudian berbuat dosa lagi dengan menangis, orang seperti ini diharapkan mendapatkan ampunan namun juga dikhawatirkan mendapatkan siksa.
Ketiga, golongan yang berdosa tapi tidak menyesal dan tidak pula bersedih, lalu berdosa tapi tidak menangis.
Orang seperti ini telah menyimpang dari jalan surga yang menuju ke neraka.
Al-baihaqi juga meriwayatkan dari Yunus Al awwam bin al-Hausyab, bahwa ia berkata : telah dikatakan bahwa gembira dengan dosa itu lebih berat daripada perbuatan dosa itu sendiri.
Karena itulah periksalah diri kita, dan lihatlah keadaan kita dalam hubungannya dengan perbuatan maksiat terhadap Allah. apakah kita termasuk orang yang bergembira dengan kemaksiatan, mencarinya dan berusaha mendapatkannya?
Waspadalah! Jangan sampai kelezatan syahwat melalaikan kita dari pahitnya dosa dan jangan sampai api hawa nafsu membakar atom keimanan dan keshalihan dalam hati kita.
"Why are many muslims so backward
The main reason for this is
DISUNITY AMONG MUSLIMS!!! AND DISTANCE FROM QUR'AN!!!
Allahﷻ says in Qur'an 3:103 "And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided"
Most of the Muslims don't connect themselves with Qur'an.
Qur'an is the rope of Allahﷻ!! The Prophetﷺ said: "I have left two matters with you.
As long as you hold to them, you will not go the wrong way.
They are the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet." (Muwatta Malik 46:1628)
(Qur'an 3:104) "And let there be [arising] from you a nation
inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right
and forbidding what is wrong,
and those will be the successful." Shaytan will try to make you lazy but please watch this video till end to get your faith refreshed.
And do Share/tag friends, family and anyone that can benefit. This would be Sadqa e Jaria for you and me. JAZAAK ALLAH KHAIR
The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: "The one who guides to something good has a reward similar to the one doing it" (Muslim)
The Prophet ﷺ said: Convey (knowledge) from me even if it is just one ayah [Bukhari 3461]. May Allahﷻ have mercy on them and us. May Allahﷻ help them and every single Muslim suffering across the world. Ameen.
In the world of today where everywhere is fitnah and immorality, where everyone is freely mixing with ghair mahram, committing fornication, staying on a living relationship, going on a date and wondering eyes on what shouldn't be seen, hearing what shouldn't be heard, touching & speaking forbidden things without making a big deal out of it...it will be quite hard for the believers to control their desire ( nafs), to guard their modesty and save themselves from fitnah, zinah & immorality.
It's indeed going to be difficult but not impossible only if you truly love Allah Azzawajal and carry out these 10 shields which In Shaa Allah will protect you from fornication.
1▪ The shield of vision reduction - always lower your gaze physically and online as well.
2 ▪ The shield of fasting. Gain double reward by having the intention of sunnah fast and fast to prevent fornication.
3▪The shield of the powerful dua from the Prophet ﷺ - "Allah, forgive my sins, purify my heart and safeguard my chastity"
4▪ The shield of marriage. Embrace early marriage.
5 ▪ The shield of a righteous company. A righteous company is the one who will enjoin you to that which pleases Allah and warns you against that which angers Him.
6 ▪ The shield of Salah - Indeed salah prevents you from immoral sins and unlawful things.
7▪ The shield of Knowledge - mostly we fall into sins due to our ignorance so gain knowledge to know what will benefit you & what harms you.
8▪ The shield of self-development - when you continuously work hard to build manner & construct your life in a healthy fashion, you actually neither get time to think about satanic activity nor get involved into any of them.
9▪The shield of reflection - always reflect on your actions, ask yourself before doing anything. Take your time, don't jump into the fire out of overflowing emotions. Think and think of the possible implications plus consequences before functioning or reaching any decision.
10 ▪ The shield of steadfastness. Love isn't the sole goal of our life, so be determined for a higher and noble goal in your lives instead of wasting your time on silly & stupid romantic fantasy.
