Simplicity In Existing

Month

June 2017

Eid mubarak everyone! I hope you had a blessed Eid filled with happiness and love! ❤️ 

“That Day, the people will depart separated [into categories] to be shown [the result of] their deeds{6}So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it,{7}And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.{8}” [Sahih International][99:6-8]

We have a fair and just God. That even an atoms weight of good [or bad] will no go unnoticed, subhanAllah! 

And this concludes the 30 day Ramadan challenge AlhamdurAllah!!! We made it through another blessed month; may Allah accept all our efforts during this beautiful month! May we live to see it again InshAllah! 

Eid mubarak!!! 

“O you who have believed, let not your wealth and your children divert you from remembrance of Allah . And whoever does that – then those are the losers.”
“And remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Him with [complete] devotion.”

[Sahih International][63:9; 73:8]

Devotion to God is everything. Remembering God in everything you do is key! Don’t let anything divert your attention from God, not your wealth nor your children for those are blessings from the almighty! So how will you allow them to take your attention from Him? Anyone who doesn’t remember God and allows these worldly things to divert him from God…those are the real losers in this life and the next. 

“Those who avoid the major sins and immoralities, only [committing] slight ones. Indeed, your Lord is vast in forgiveness. He was most knowing of you when He produced you from the earth and when you were fetuses in the wombs of your mothers. So do not claim yourselves to be pure; He is most knowing of who fears Him.”[Sahih International][53:32]

A beautiful but also brutal reminder! God reminds us that He is all forgiving; that if you do your best to avoid sins…especially the major ones He will forgive the small ones! But at the same time, He’s telling us not to claim purity; because as humans we are known to make mistakes and no one is free of sins. God knows your intentions and your heart for He is all knowing! So He knows exactly what you’ve done and why…and from that He will chose to take whatever actions He sees fit. 

This verse is a great reminder to us that no matter what we do in this life it is never enough and without Gods forgiveness no one could ever make it to paradise. Humans constantly sin; and without a forgiving God…paradise is impossible. 

We should be thankful that our God is so forgiving, AlhamdurAllah ❤️

“He (Allah) is such that He sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers, so that they grow more in faith in addition to their (existing) faith- And to Allah belong the forces of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise-“[Mufti Taqi Usmani][48:4]

SubhanAllah, God is always doing the most for us and we’re never grateful. He explains to us that He sent down to us tranquility and calmness into the hearts of the believers to help their faith grow even more. Because when you’re worry free and you’ve got a heart that is calm you tend to do better/more for what you believe in; for your faith! 

He is all knowing and all wise; so He knows how humans work and how to go about us, subhanAllah. 

“Whoever desires the harvest of the Hereafter – We increase for him in his harvest. And whoever desires the harvest of this world – We give him thereof, but there is not for him in the Hereafter any share.”[Sahih International][42:20]

Doing more for our hereafter is so important, God is giving us his word that he will give us what we worked for. And if we worked for our hereafter he will give us more than what we bargained for; because he is Al-Kareem, the generous! And if we only did things for our Dunya than we will also get what we worked for, but that’s it; no share of it will be taken to the hereafter. 

This verse is such a great motivation for us to do more for our hereafter instead of doing it for this Dunya when it’s ending. We leave with nothing from it but our good deeds done for the next life; the hereafter. 

“When man is visited by a trouble, he prays to Us, but when, after that, We favor him with some blessing from Us, he says, “This is given to me because of (my) knowledge.” No, but this is a trial, yet most of them do not know.”[Mufti Taqi Usmni][39:49]

Isn’t this always the case? Man is always priding himself with his capability of creating his own future when in reality it’s all Gods doing. Without God you wouldn’t be where you currently are; no matter how much you try. And when does man remember God the most? When he finds himself in trouble; but when all is well God is the last thing on his mind. 

This verse also tells us something important. Blessings can also be a trial in disguise; you may not know it on spot but eventually you will. Being healthy can be a trial, you’re healthy so maybe you should use this health to help those who lack it. Being rich can be a trial, you’re rich so maybe you can help those less fortunate. And so on.

In the end remember that it’s all in Gods hands. 

“Had Allah opted to have a son of His own, He would have definitely chosen anyone, as He wished, out of what He had created. (But), Pure is He. He is Allah, the Only One, the All-Dominant.”[Mufti Taqi Usmni][39:4]

If god wanted to be associated with someone; a son for example he could have easily done that. It’s not something impossible and he could have chosen from all that he has created, but he didn’t. God is all dominant, there is no God but him….no one is associated with him and his greatness. This is one of the main pillars of Iman! And when you decide to become Muslim you say this phrase, called Al-Shahada [the testimony]:- 

‎”لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا ٱلله مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ ٱلله

lā ʾilāha ʾillā llāh muḥammadun rasūlu llāh

There is no god but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God.”

“O mankind, remember Allah’s blessing upon you. Is there any creator other than Allah who gives you provision from the sky and the earth? There is no god but He. So, to where are you being turned around (by your desires)?”[Mufti Taqi Usmni][35:3]

Another verse asking us to remember everything we are blessed with. And it’s great to have these reminders spread all over the Quran because we constantly need to be reminded; we as humans tend to forget to be thankful for what we have and tend to ask for more when we have more than enough. Our desires constantly call us and make us become greedy, always asking for more instead of being thankful for the countless blessings we already have. 

So if you haven’t thanked God for what you have today or if it’s been a while since you remembered your blessings, take the time to do that now! AlhamdurAllah for everything we have; from material things to this beautiful earth and the way it functions to keep us alive!
