Emotional Dua by Hadhrat Ali رضي الله عنه

All praises are due to Allah, the most Merciful, And may His Choices, blessing and salutations be upon His Beloved Nabi, Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم  , May Allah be pleased with His Family and companions, with Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, Ali  and their families, the Sahaba, the Tabi’een, the Taba Tabi’een, the Salaf Asaliheen, and all those who follow Nabi Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم A, till the Last Day, Amma Ba’ad

The advice and dua of Hadhrat Ali (RA) on his deathbed, which we can earmark as the beginnig of the build up to Karbala. Let us read these words and advices of a man, who was loved by our Nabi SAW, who embodied Imaan and Taqwa. These advises were given to his family, let us try to share these words with one and all and make an effort to follow these advises in the year to come,

“I advise you (both) to fear Allah and that you should not hanker after the (pleasure of this) world even though it may run after you. Do not be sorry for anything of this world that you have been denied. Speak the truth and act (in expectation) for reward. Be an enemy of the oppressor and helper of the oppressed.

“I advise you (both) and all my children and members of my family and everyone whom my writing reaches, to fear Allah, to keep your affairs in order, and to maintain good relations among yourselves for I have heard your grandfather (the Holy Prophet) saying: `Improvement of mutual differences is better than general prayers and fasting.’

“(Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in view in the matter of orphans. So do not allow them to starve and they should not be ruined in your presence.

“(Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in view in the matter of your neighbours, because they were the subject of the Prophet’s advice. He went on advising in their favour till we thought he would allow them a share in inheritance.

“(Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in view in the matter of the Qur’an. No one should excel you in acting upon it.

“(Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in view in the matter of prayer, because it is the pillar of your religion.

“(Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in view in the matter of your Lord’s House (Ka’bah). Do not forsake it so long as you live, because if it is abandoned you will not be spared.

“(Fear) Allah (and) keep Allah in view in the matter of jihad with the help of your property, lives and tongues in the way of Allah.

“You should keep to a respect for kinship and spending for others. Avoid turning away from one another and severing mutual relations. Do not give up bidding for good and forbidding from evil lest the mischievous gain positions over you, and then if you will pray, the prayers will not be granted.”

“(Fear) Allah for Allah is the most severe in reckoning. From my side, the Ahle bait, may Allah protect you. From the Prophets SAW may you be protected, I leave you in the hands of Allah, Assalamu Alaikum.”

We thank You for choosing us to worship You and we thank You for guarding us from the path of the ignorant. we thank You fro every breath that we take, every move that we make , everything is from You our Creator. 
You are the one that is Pure, the Source of Peace and the Inspirer of Faith, we ask that You purify our hearts and grant us Peace in every form and that we seek inspiration in Your overwhelming Magnificence and in no other. Oh our Guardian, keep us steadfast in your worship and on the Straight Path. the path of those whom you have favoured, keep our hearts firm and our feet strong in running towards Your Light. When we fall, we turn to You, the Maker of Order, to guide us and reaffirm our hearts in Your favour. 
Oh Allah, the Knower of All, the Most Forgiving and the Hider of Faults, we are weak, You are strong, we are dependent and You are Independent, we ask You for Your rains of forgiveness, to wash away all those sins we have committed in the light of day and the dark of the night, those sins we have committed knowingly and unknowingly, intentionally and unintentionally, those sins that You have hidden and those which are exposed, we beg you Ya Ghafur, forgive us.

Our Nourisher and Protector, The loving and The Generous one, we ask that you secure us in this dunya, but do not let us get attached to the delusions and adornments which our eyes see.  We ask You to remove the love and attachment from our hearts to all those things that do not serve You. We ask You for a comfortable, secure and peaceful stay in this temporary home, we ask You that this dunya is a place where we use the bounties and blessings we have to gain a closeness to you. we ask You that while we fulfill our dunya duties, You protect us from becoming a role player in the fitna and corruption of this world.

We ask that we take that which will benefit us from this world, for the next.  
Our Sovereign Lord, grant us ease in our graves, grant us conviction in our faith so that we may recognize our Lord, Religion and Beloved Nabi.

Allow us swift entry therein, without any reckoning and questioning, allow us to receive our Books of Deeds in our right hands, and not the left and not from our backs. We are the authors of our books, grant us the ability to write only that which pleases You. Oh the Merciful, allow us entry in to Paradise through you mercy.
Oh our Lord, we ask you for your continued guidance and love and mercy. We ask that you make this year, 1436, a year of success and triumph for all the Muslims around the world. We ask for relief for the oppressed, shelter for the destitute, peace for the victims of war, guidance for one and all, happiness for our children, mercy for our parents, we ask for that is good and blessed and for that which is befitting for each one of us. 
Ya Rabb, You have knowledge of that which is in our hearts,and that which we do not verbalise, we ask that You grant acceptance of all that we ask for and that good which is in our hearts, not just for us, for for the entire Ummah of Nabi Muhammad, Peace and Blessings be upon Him. 
Ameen, Ya Rabil Alimeen. 

Heavenly Peace

Paradise : And those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein by permission of their Lord; and their greeting therein will be, “Peace!”

The Quranic definition of Paradise has thrown me in to a pool of reflection and introspection.  Why? The simple words explain the very idea of peace and satisfaction that we constantly crave.

I mean, I am certain that doing anything in a place so beautiful that words can not
even describe and abiding therein with the permission of the Almighty has to be the ultimate state of peace.

Allah is merciful and He loves us, I have said this before, His mercy has no limits. Allah tells us all these wonderful things and tells us how to achieve them too, Subhanallah! Here is this week’s naseeha: there is dunya peace – which is found in the righteous acts and in your salaah. The Quran tells us ‘those who do righteous deeds will be permitted entry’. But let’s take a minute to praise the Almighty – our acts that allow us ‘dunya peace’ are the same acts which are the keys to our ‘akhira peace’

May Allah give us all dunya and akhira peace and may we be guided to the righteous acts which please Him. Ameen

Do it Gracefully

موضع إعجاب
"Literally " Admiration

How many times do we say "OMG I love this"
Admiration is a term used to express love, passion and even devotion 
towards...well, anything. but i say, we take a few minutes to consider 
redirecting some, if not all of that love to our Beloved Nabi  Muhammed SAW,May Peace and Blessings be upon him, Ameen.
He has been documented to be "a man who inspired unparalleled love" 
Someone whose character inspires and continues to inspire millions and we as Muslims have the privilege of calling him OUR Nabi, SO in being the night of Jumu'ah let us honour that privilege by sending greetings and salutations unto him.
Lets not neglect this practice as we all want to be close to our beloved Nabi SAW,don't we? Our Nabi SAW himself has told us that verily those closest to me on the day of resurrection, will be those who recited durood upon me. - Tirmidi
Ya Rabbi Salli Wasallim Da'iman ' Abadan ' ala Habibika Khari Khalqi Kullihimi
Literally, Oh our Sustainer, shower peace and blessings always and forever  on Your beloved, the best of all creation .
Ameen, Ya Rab
