Apart from the miraculous characteristics of the Qur’an which we have looked into so far, it also contains what we can term “mathematical miracles.” There are many examples of this fascinating Qur’anic aspect. One example of this is the number of repetitions of certain words in the Qur’an. Some related words are surprisingly repeated the same number of times.

A little prayer for the strugglers (I’m with you):

The Prophet (sa) would say every morning and evening, “Allah, I seek solace in you from hamm and hazn.”

Hamm means things we’ve experienced in the past that sadden and worry us. Hazin are things in the future that scare us and sadden us. Allah is al-Qadīr and al-Rahīm.

May Allah lift the hamm and hazin from us, relieve our burdens and grant us the faith to soar above dark times. Stay strong and know that there are others going through what you are going through, even Imams and activists. You are not alone!

With faith, worship and community, you can do it - with God’s help, you got this. “Indeed, Allah’s help is (constantly) close.”

Even though I don’t know you, consider my prayers as a crutch with you at every tear and sad feeling. My prayers are not strong - I’m in need of yours more. But everyone holding on to their faith amongst the rocky seas of life, I love you for the sake of Allah and I’m happy to share in the struggle with you. Have a great Sunday!

The explanation of hamm and hazn just blew my mind. I’ve known that dua for years and loved it when I read the translation but now it means so much more.

Summary of Hazrat Mawlana Saad Kandhalwi’s (DB) Bayaan for Senior Workers at Markaz Nizamuddin (11-03-2014)

● This effort [of tabligh] will not progress through acting by experience, but rather by adopting the ways of the Sahaba (RD)

● Those involved in tabligh have begun to view studying the lives of the Sahaba (RD) to be of less importance and have popularized speeches, mashwara, and programmes in its place

● Hazratji Mawlana Ilyas (ra) would say that a speech or discussion that does not instill an awareness of Allah is nothing but pleasure for the ears

● Hazrat Mawlana Yusuf arranged Muntakhab Ahadith so that workers would not be free to explain the 6 principles according to their own whims and so that there would be no misinformation in their explanation

● Ignorance is that a person narrates whatever he hears or has been told. Such a person has been labeled a liar in the hadith. These days, it’s become common for people to say, “We have heard…” When asked for a reference, though, they are unable to give one and even struggle to tell you whom they heard it from

● Hazrat Mawlana Yusuf would say that when a da’ee takes the work of da’wah lightly, he will be affected by tribulations with no solution. An example of such a tribulation would be that he will leave the work of da’wah

● The purpose of gasht is to bring the ummah to fara’id, because it is only through the practice of fara’id that one can be saved from apostasy

● The da’ee should make it necessary upon himself to pray tahajjud. I tell you no help [from Allah] comes without tahajjud

● If a person is not inclined towards the worship of Allah, he risks falling into istidraj. Istidraj is when a person goes astray, but continues to belive that he is on the right path

● The reason for disagreement among saathis is a lack of connection with Allah and a decrease in the degree of dhikr, worship, and tahajjud

● Hazratji would say that Islam will be ruined by the Muslims and da’wah will be ruined by the da’ees.

● Before and after work, we should engage in ta’lim daily so that we develop a realization that is not our profession that sustains us but rather Allah that sustains us

● The purpose of ta’lim is not to bring about eagerness for good deeds, but rather to create confidence in Allah’s promises. [It is important to understand this] otherwise one may begin to feel that there is no need to attend ta’lim once this eagerness is developed

● The reason for ignorance amongst da’ees today is a lack of association with ‘ulama. Understand that [attending] the gatherings of the ‘ulama is a form of worship and consider it necessary upon yourself

● All of the different branches of deen are branches of nubuwwah; da’wah should not conflict with imamah, teaching, or any other branch

● Da’wah is here particularly to create a thirst for knowledge and not to prepare a group of people that do no other work except da’wah

● Da’wah is to advance the ummah with ilm and dhikr such that ignorance is eliminated

● An important objective of da’wah is that there be an increase in those seeking knowledge through the help of da’ees

● I believe it to be a matter of joy that there be an increase in those sitting in circles of knowledge and tafsir and learning necessary masa’il

● Our speeches and discussions should be free of any statement that would conflict with another field of deen. All fields are part of deen

● Most of the ahadith in Muntakhab Ahadith are under the topic of ‘Respect’. Hazrat Mawlana Yusuf’s aim was to give those involved in tabligh a proper understanding of the rights of Muslims

● Just as Allah has no need for us, the work of deen has no need for us

● Our purpose is to attain the acceptance of Allah. What need do we have for the support of His creation?

● Hazratji Mawlana Yusuf would say that even if the du’as, worship, and efforts of those involved in da’wah & tabligh were to reach the throne of Allah, His help would not descend until and unless they unite

“We need to be less emotional and more courageous. Instead of being emotionally passive, start being intellectually active” —

Tariq Ramadan (March 7, Lecture @ Ghent)

Someone asked how it came that despite the fact our Ummah’s falling apart (f.e. Egypt, Syria,..) As much as it affects us emotionally, no one’s really doing something about it.

I love how short en powerful his answers are.

Okay seriously, how do the Zionists in the crowd listen to all these first hand stories about dead children and destroyed homes and not feel like pieces of shit.

Because that’s only half the story. Learn the history of Palestine and you will see it is the…

“Don’t name your daughter Sumayyah if you’re not willing to let her make sacrifices for her beliefs. Don’t name your daughter Aisha if you’re going to tell her she can’t learn and become a scholar. Don’t name your daughter Nusaybah if you don’t want her to fight tooth and nail for what she believes in. Don’t name your daughter Maryam if you don’t expect greatness of character from her. Don’t name your daughter Aasiya if you’re not willing to let her be a part of the fight against oppressors.” — Asmaa Hussein (via tmihijabi)
