Please everyone remember to fast the 10th of Muharram (the day of Ashura). This will forgive the minor sins of an entire past year !!Why do we fast this day?? This is the day that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) found the Jews fasting as it was the day Musa (Moses) (a.s) defeated Fir’aun (Pharaoh). So Muhammad (pbuh) said that the Muslims have more right to Musa (a.s) than the Jews, so we should fast it as well. It is also recommended to fast either the day before or after.

One of the people shaded on the day of judgment is the one whose heart is attached to the house of Allah. (hadith)



My question is as follows: Then what about the one whose heart is attached to the root reason for why we have mosques in the first place… The one whose heart is attached to the one who loved them and they have not met him…The one who is not an inanimate building, in fact the best of creation that ever existed on earth… more precious to Allah than the best of Mosques, Al haram al shareef (in Mecca)… none other than our master and beloved rasullah salla 3alayhi wa salam! What do they get… just imagine… 

Rasullullah (sallalahu 3alayhi wasalam) said: “You will be with the one whom you love”, and obviously the best (and most shaded) place on the day of judgment shall be with the one who was shaded by the clouds in the desert! 


Rasullullah (sallalahu 3alayhi wasalam) said: The one who will be nearest me on the Day of Resurrection will be the one who invoked most blessings on me.

Bros/sis send salawat upon your prophet every night and day!

Reported by `Abdullah bin `Abbas (RA): Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said that Allah, the Glorious, said: “He who intends to do a good deed but he does not do it, then Allah records it for him as a full good deed, but if he carries out his intention, then Allah the Exalted, writes it down for him as from ten to seven hundred folds, and even more. But if he intends to do an evil act and has not done it, then Allah writes it down with Him as a full good deed, but if he intends it and has done it, Allah writes it down as one bad deed”

GOOD READ: It Was Just One “Like”

Excerpt from MuslimMatters.org

She started out Ramadan with high hopes, for a new beginning, more enthusiasm, greater spirituality.  Every Ramadan for the past few years she had been really trying to take advantage of the holy month and to come closer to God and to grow as a person.

She logged onto Facebook right before heading out to the Youth Qiyam at the masjid.  In her News Feed, she saw all of her friends who were going…and noticed that he was going as well.  He being one of the brothers in the youth group, someone who she had noticed becoming more serious about Islam recently as well.  He being the one who would creep up into her thoughts sometimes.

And now he was creeping up on her Facebook News Feed as well.

So, she “liked” his status.  She thought, come on, it’s just one “like!” 

She woke up the next morning and noticed all of her friends posting about the Qiyam last night.  She was wondering whether he had posted anything, and started to scroll down the page looking for something.  He had posted as well.  It was a quote from one of the lectures.

That quote also resonated with her.  So, she “liked” it.  She thought, come on, it’s a great reminder!  Maybe I’ll share his status on my Wall as well, help spread the khayr!

She had posted a quote from the Qiyam as well.  And guess who “liked” it…? And commented…?

He did.

A crazy rush of excitement shot through her.

The next day, her phone beeped, someone had tagged her in a tweet.  She went on to Twitter, and she noticed a recent tweet of his.  Turns out he was going to the masjid in the neighboring town tonight for tarawih.

I’ve been wanting to check out that masjid, I’ve heard the reciter is amazing!…maybe I can convince the family to go there tonight.

Ends up they didn’t make it to that masjid that night.  It made her a little sad.  So she logged into her Facebook.  She was hoping he had posted something new.  She logged into her Twitter.  She was hoping he had posted something new.  She was in luck!  He posted a picture at the masjid.

So, she “liked” it.

He had posted an ayah that was read in tarawih that night as well.  She read the comments below, and saw some interesting things that people had posted.  And she wanted to respond and share her insights, too.  It reminded her of another ayah she had read the other day.

So, she commented and posted that ayah.

He commented back a few hours later.

So, she “liked” his comment.

It kept going and going like this every day.  She logged into her Facebook and Twitter hoping one of his posts would pop up in her News Feed.  She didn’t feel like she was doing anything wrong.  There wasn’t much interaction, they weren’t even really talking, she made the excuse.  And it was just posts about Islam and Ramadan!  She was actually finding benefit in some of his posts.  They made her think and she was learning from them.

Inna ilaih wa inna ilaihi raaji’oon. To Him we belong, and to Him we return.

"And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision. Rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them of His bounty, and they receive good tidings about those [to be martyred] after them who have not yet joined them - that there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.They receive good tidings of favor from Allah and bounty and [of the fact] that Allah does not allow the reward of believers to be lost." (3:169-171)

A beautiful brother, a local community member, Sheikh Mustapha al Majzoub, has passed away. His death has just been announced; he was helping his brothers and sisters, on the border between Syria and Turkey. May he InshaAllah be granted the highest of Heavens and make him amongst the matyrs of the Sahaba.

Make dua for your brother from Sydney, Australia.

Al fatiha.

On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him), who said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) took me by the shoulder and said, “Be in this world as though you were a stranger or a passer-by.”
