Assalamualaikum brothers & sisters
I want to share some very important things I learned in our first weekend of the Eternal journey:
Life is a test and that Allah SWT tests us by giving and also tests us by taking away.
There are many others names of the Day of Judgment. Some are: Yawm al Qiyyamah, Yawm al Aakhirah, Yawm al Taghabun,Yawm al Hisaab, Yawm ad deen etc.
Allah SWT created everything to servs us and He created us to serve Him
The more you know your deen, the more Khashiyah you'll have for Allah SWT. The more ignorant you are, the more far way you get from Allah SWT.
Never compromise your Deen!
3 main themes in the Quran:
1. Aqeedah (the right belief)
2. History or stories of the past
3. Rules/laws to guide us to Jannah
This Duniya is jannah for the disbeliever but a jail for the believer
the Quran is the speech of Allah SWT
Nothing happens without the permission and knowledge of Allah SWT
Good Intention is the key to Ibaadah
Allah SWT says in Surah Nuh,verse 1 that He has sent Nuh(AS) to his people so before a painful punishment comes, warn your people.Prophet Nuh (AS) made Da'awa for 950 years
If you disbelieve with one prophet then you disbelieve in all the prophets becasue they all had the same message for their people.
Hellfire was lit for 1000 years until it became red and very dark
Life starts when you start connecting with Allah SWT
Malik: keeper of the Hellfire, hasn't smiled ever since he was created
No believer will stay eternally in the Hellfire ,he will get out of it and then go to jannah but Disbelievers and Hypocrites will eternally stay in Hellfire.
1 second in Jannah will make you forget any luxury you had seen in Duniyah

Have you ever cried for the sins you have commited? Did shaytaan ever make you feel like the past can't be repented? Do you really love ALLAH or its just words that you utter? Do you feel like your innocence have been drained by the gutter? Can you love sunnah and still love to backbite? How many days you woke up Muslim and Kafaar by night? If you were on trial for being a mumin,will they have enough evidence to convict you? If you die right now,how long will it take for the ummah to forget you? Can you answer the questions in the grave,or do you have to study for that test? And what will be the words you utter at the moment of your last breath? What are you prepared to sacrifice for the sunnah? Did you ever take part in spreading a vicious rumour ? If so how far did it go? How many people really know? On the day of judgment , how many mumins are you gonna owe? Why are the last to jumac and the first to leave? Is that an indication of how much you really believe? Why do u say things out of your mouth,thatís not in your heart? Donít you know muslims live in the light,and the kufars live in the dark? How can a month go by and you missed every salat? Where's your desire? Heaven or hell? mahdi or the dajjal? Allah or the shaytan? R&b tunes,or ayats from the holy quran? standing on street corners at the end of the block, or at the masjid making salat.You could listen,or turn your head.Cause this earth is a paradise for the ungrateful dead.

Is [F]rom Shaddaad ibn Aws (radiyallaahu Ďanhu) from the Prophet (sallallaahu Ďalayhi wassallam) that he said, "The noblest and most excellent manner of seeking forgiveness is that the servant says:
ĎO Allaah, You are my Lord. None has the right to be worshipped except You. You created me, and I am Your slave/worshipper. And I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as far as I am able. I seek Your refuge from the evil of what I have done. I acknowledge before You all the favours that You have bestowed upon me. And I confess all my sins to You. So forgive me, since none can forgive sins except You.
( 'Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta, Anta Khalaqtani wa ana abduka, wa ana 'ala ahdika wa wa'dika mastata'tu, A'udhu bika min Sharri ma sana'tu, abu'u Laka bini'matika 'alaiya, wa Abu Laka bidhanbi faghfirli innahu la yaghfiru adhdhunuba illa anta.")'
The Prophet (sallallaahu Ďalayhi wassallam) said, "Whoever says it in the day, with firm conviction in it, and dies in that day before evening - then he is from the people of Paradise. Whoever says it in the night, with firm conviction in it, and he dies before the Morning -then he is from the people of Paradise."

MY advice for you is the gift I offer to you, to my sister and my friend, especially in this country. I ask Allah to give you benefit from it and to be like a memory forever.
My dear sister you should always remember, that you are representing Islam. So your manners and character should reflect the religion, and you should be a good exmple for Muslim women.
You should always remember that Allah is the the only one to be worshipped at all times and in all places. And always keepyour tongue wet with the remembrance of Allah.
Be constant on the prayer , since the tent will not stand without the pillars, and the religion will not stand without the Prayer.I advice you to be careful in delaying or being lazy about the prayers. Even if you are in the market or school. Take care of the prayers.
It is on you to observe the proper Hijaab. While at the same time being humble and modest. And you should know that the conditions of the hijaab are the following;
-it is not attracting
-is is not transparent
-it is not tight but loose fitting
-it should not resemble the dressing of Men
-it should not resemble the dressing of the disbelieving Women
-it should not be covered with the smell of fragnance or perfume
It is obligatory to cover the the entire body except where there is a difference of opinion between the scholars, which is the hands and face.. But there is no difference of opinion concerning Hair,head and neck. It is not allowed to show your arms and legs.
Oh my dear sister, take care to obey and honour Allah the most high. and don't worry when the disbelievers are are starring at you. You should be honoured by your hijaab and your religion.
you should take extra care to make sure you are eating halal and drinking halal especially in this country. Since over here they dont care about halal or haram.
stay away from the places of evil and dont let curiousity drive you to these palces.Don't look at the things which are haram. Whether it is the t.v.,magazines, newspapers, internet, etc. If you expose yourself to this type of material, you will put yourself into bad position.
You should always try to be with those who are fron the people of good. They will remind you when you forget. And they encourage you, when you become heedless.
You should try and be part of the circles of knowledge. And the Islamic lessons. And first and always the memorization of the Quran. And make yourself busy with anything that will benefit you in this world and in the hereafter.
You should take the best care of your children and raise them according to the religion if Islam. Since Allah will ask about them on the day of judgement. so dont leave them to become friends with those who are evil. and dont leave them to become victims of the t.v. or Internet.
Always preserve your tongue from gossip, backbiting, and bad talking. Always try and over look the people's mistakes, and forgive them. Try and always have a goof impresion of the people, and dodnot get involved with too much talking about people.
If you can, try and spend for the sake of Allah. Donate to the Muslims everywhere.
I remind you and myseld to ask Allah to give victory for those fighting in His Way, wherever they might be. And to give victory to ISlam.
All of us should try and cut off ties with the jews in all ways.
Finally i ask Allah to make all of us love each other for the sake of Allah, and to hold on to the rope of Islam. And to make us meet again and in Janah! Amiin!
Oh my dear sister, I ask you to forgive me for any shortcommings or if I have ever hurt you in any way. Wa Salaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
