The faith of a servant is not upright


Anas bin Malik رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“The faith of a servant is not upright until his heart is upright, and his heart is not upright until his tongue is upright. A man will not enter Paradise if his neighbor is not secure from his evil.”   (Aḥmad)



_How can salvation be achieved_ Islamic Hadees


Uqbah Bin Amir رضي الله عنه narrates that I asked Rasúlullãh ﷺ,


“How can salvation be achieved?” He replied,


. Control your tongue,


. Keep to your house and


. Weep over your sins

_Abstain from nourishing your body with Harãm_ Islamic Hadees


Abu Bakr رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“Jahannam is best suited to the body that is nourished on Harãm food.” (Baihaqi)



_Just as it is not permissible to consume anything that is Harãm, likewise it is not permitted to earn Haraam or to eat from Harãm wealth. In this worldly life, it causes the goodness and blessings of a household to be lost. in the hereafter, the matter is more severe._


_The example of reading times daily_ Islamic Hadees


Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“If there was a river at the doorstep of any one of you and he bathed in it five times daily, would you notice any dirt on him?” They replied, “Not a trace of dirt would be left.” Rasúlullãh ﷺ added, “That is the example of the five _(daily)_ prayers through which Allãh removed evil deeds.”  (Bukhari)


_Extinguish anger with Water_


Atiyya رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,

_Du’a when suffering from body pains_


Uthman bin Abul A’as رضي الله عنه once came to Rasúlullãh ﷺ and complained of bodily pain he was suffering. Rasúlullãh ﷺ told him to place his hand over the painful portion and to then recite بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ _(Bismillãh)_ three times, followed by seven times:


_أَعُوْذُ بِاللهِ وَقُدْرَتِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ وَ أُحَاذِرُ_


_I seek protection with Allãh and his power from the evil of what I am experiencing and what I fear._


_The Sahabi_ رضي الله عنه _was cured after reciting this and then taught the prescription to his Family._    (Muslim)

_The hour of acceptance on Friday_


Jabir bin Abdullãh رضي الله عنه narrates that Allãh’s Messenger ﷺ said,


Friday is divided into twelve hours. Amongst them, there is an hour in which a Muslim does not ask Allah for anything but He gives it to him. So seek it in the last hour after the afternoon prayer.  (Abu Dawood)



_Righteousness is good Character_


An-Nawwas ibn Sam’an رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,

_Du’a to overcome your fears_


Ma’qal bin Yasãr رضي الله عنه narrates that once I expressed my fears to Rasúlullãh ﷺ over  things in my life,


  • I feared that I would be misled or deviate from the Siraatul-Mustaqeem (the straight path).


  • The second was regarding my life. I feared harm or illness would befall me.


  • The third was about my children, that they would suffer Deeni or worldly harm.


  • My fourth concern was my wife, that she too may suffer physical or spiritual harm.


  • The fifth fear I had was over my wealth, should there occur a loss of income or property.


After listening to my fears, Rasúlullãh ﷺ taught me the following Dua:


To be recited  times morning and evening,


بسم الله على ديني و نفسي و ولدي و اهلي و مالي


”Bismillahi ala deeni wanafsi wawaladi wa ahli wa mali”


“May the blessings of Allah be on my Deen, life, children, family and wealth.”

_Take care of your deen_


Abdullãh ibn Umar رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“Verily a man who knows the Qur’an well is like a man who has a tied camel; if he takes care of the camel well _(ties it strongly)_ then he keeps it safe, and if he lets go of the rope, the camel will escape. _(Similarly, if you take care of the Qur’an by reading and reciting from it regularly and acting upon its commandments, it will stay with you and if you don’t take care of it, it will go away from you)_.   (Bukhari)

_Do you know who a bankrupt person is?_


Rasúlullah ﷺ once asked the Sahaabah رضي الله عنهم:


“Do you know who a bankrupt person is?”


They replied: “A bankrupt person among us is the one without money or assets.”


Rasúlullah ﷺ then said:


“Indeed, the bankrupt one of my Ummah will come on the Day of Resurrection with Salaah, fasting and Zakaah (in his account), but he comes along having abused this one, slandered that one, unlawfully took the wealth of this one and shed the blood of that one, and beaten that one. So this one will be given from his good deeds, and that one will be given from his good deeds. And if his good deeds finish before their rights have been recompensed, some of their sins (i.e. the ones he wronged) will be taken and cast onto him, then he will be thrown into the Fire.” (Sahih Muslim)



_Hearing the footsteps of Bilal in Paradise_


Abu Hurairah  رضي الله عنه narrates that

Rasúlullah  ﷺ asked Bilal  رضي الله عنه at the time of Fajr prayer:

“O Bilal, inform me regarding the best deed you have done after embracing Islam, for I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise.” Bilal رضي الله عنه  replied, “I did not commit any act that I deem promising _(of the reward)_ except that whenever I performed ablution during the day or night, I prayed salah with that ablution as much as was written for me _(to pray)_.”   (Bukhari Shareef)



_Hellfire is forbidden_


Hanzala al Usaydi رضي الله عنه narrates that

Rasúlullah ﷺ said,


“Whoever guards the five prayers, their ablution, their timing, their bowing, and their prostration, and knowing they are the right of Allah over him, then Allah will forbid him from entering Hellfire.”




_Keep your tongue wet_


Abdullãh bin Busr رضي الله عنه reported:

A man said, “O Messenger of Allah ﷺ,

The injunctions of Islam are too many for me, so tell me something I can hold onto.”

Rasúlullah ﷺsaid,

“Keep your tongue wet with the remembrance of Allah.”



_Great reward comes with great trials_


The Messenger of Allah  ﷺ said,


“Great reward comes with great trials _(discomfort/unfavorable conditions)._ When Allah loves a person, He tests them, and whoever accepts it _(as Allah’s will)_ attains His pleasure, whereas whoever shows discontent _(with the decision of Allah)_ incurs His wrath.”   (Tirmidhi)


_Reading Surah Yaseen every morning_


Ataa’ bin Abi Rabãh رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“Whoever reads Surah Yaseen in the beginning of the day, all his needs for that day are fulfilled.”   (Dãrimi)



If we teach our girls to wear Islamic dress then it is farz upon us to train them in self-defense so that they can protect their dignity and save themselves from humiliation. This kind of experience will mentally damage this young girl for life



_O Allãh’s slaves, be brothers!_


Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“Beware of suspicion, for verily suspicion is the worst of false tales, and don’t look for each others’ faults, don’t spy on one another, don’t be jealous of one another, don’t desert _(cut your relations with)_ one another and don’t harbour hate for one another. O Allãh’s slaves, be brothers!”   (Bukhari)

Jãbir bin Abdulãh رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“I have been given five things which were not given to anyone before me:


() I have been divinely assisted _(against my enemies)_ with awe, _(by Allah frightening my enemies)_ from a distance of one month’s journey.


() The entire earth has been made a place for prayer (Salaah) and a means of purification _(Tayammum)_ for me _(and for my followers)_, therefore any of my followers can perform Salaah wherever they are _(without difficulty or excuses)._


() The spoils of war have been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone before me.


() I have been given the right of intercession _(on the Day of Resurrection)._


() Every Prophet was sent to his own nation specifically, but I have been sent to all mankind.”  (Bukhari)



_Do not talk excessively_


Abdullãh bin Umar رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“Do not talk excessively without remembering Allah, because such excessive talk without the mention of Allah causes the heart to harden, and the person furthest from Allah is a person with a hard heart”



_Du’ã when you see something you like_


Aisha رضي الله عنها narrates,


When Rasúlullãh ﷺ saw something he liked, he would say:


اَلْحَمْدُ لِله الٌَذِيْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ تَتِمُّ الصَّالِحَاتُ

He said, “And if he is unable to do that?”


He ﷺ said, “He should help someone in need.”


He said, “What if he cannot find anyone?”


He ﷺ said, “He should do a righteous/good deed.”


He said, “What if he cannot do that?”


He ﷺ said, “He should refrain from doing evil/bad actions. That is Sadaqah for him.” (Bukhâri & Muslim)



Getting up for fajr salaah

-Make firm intention before you sleep

-Recite Ayat ul kursi and last  verses of Surah al Baqarah before you sleep

-Put the alarm on for at least  minutes before you are due to pray

-When the alarm rings, stay in your bed, rub your eyes but do not get out straight away

-Stay lying down with your eyes open for a few minutes

–Slowly get up, recite the kalima and progress to make wudhu

-Keep it in your mind that this is the most blessed time of day, so it is extremely disliked to sleep between fajr and sunrise

-If you do this consistently your life will have peace and doors will open from where you did not expect, in sha Allah

-Brothers should make there a way to the masjid for Fajr salah rather than praying at home


_You are judged by your Taqwa_

_The etiquette of serving others_


Abu Qatadah رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullah ﷺ said,


“He who serves others with drinking water should be the last to drink himself.”


A little duah that you may or may not know.






Do you know it ???..


Al-Abbas (R.A.), the uncle of the Prophet (ﷺ), came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said:


“Ya Rasulullah, teach me a du’a.”


The Prophet ( ﷺ) said:

“O my uncle, say:




(O Allah, I ask you for afiyah).


Now what is Afiyah?

Afiyah means –


  • To be saved from any afflictions, you are in afiyah.


  • To be healthy, you are in afiyah.


  • To have enough money, you are in afiyah.


  • To live, you are in afiyah.


  • To have your children protected, you are in afiyah.


  • And if you are forgiven and not punished, you are in afiyah.


So basically, Afiyah means:


“O Allah, protect me from any pain and sufferings.”


This includes both dun’ya and akhirah.


Al-Abbas (R.A.) thought about this for a while, and then he came back after a few days and said (paraphrased):


“Ya Rasulullah, this du’a seems a little short. I want something big.”


The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“My dear uncle, ask Allah for Afiyah for Wallahi, you cannot be given anything better than afiyah.”


It is a simple du’a.

Sincerely mean what you say while praying.


“O Allah, I ask You to be saved from any:




harm, and

don’t test me, etc.”


All of this is included in

“Allahumma inni as’aluka al’afiyah”

(Riyadh As Saliheen, Sunan At-Tirmidhi).


Make sure to share this to others and tell your friends:


Prophet Muhammed (ﷺ) said :

“Convey from me, even if it is one verse.”


Brothers and Sisters please also say this every day and ask Allah swt for forgiveness.


May Allah accept all our prayers. Ameen.


May ALLAH SWT Bless, protect you in every possible manner and Grant everything that will bring Happiness, ease to you in this world the hereafter with no further pains or tests with all the family and all Muslims Ameen



_Du’ã when you see something you like_


Aisha رضي الله عنها narrates,


When Rasúlullãh ﷺ saw something he liked, he would say:


اَلْحَمْدُ لِله الٌَذِيْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ تَتِمُّ الصَّالِحَاتُ


_Praise is to Allãh by whose grace good deeds are completed_


And if saw something he disliked, he would say:


اَلْحَمْدُ لِله عَلَي كُلِّ حَالٍ


_Praise is to Allãh in all circumstances (good and bad)_.

strengthen the ties of kinship_ Islamic Hadees


Abdullãh bin Salam رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,

_The fear of Rasúlullãh ﷺ for this Ummah_ Islamic Hadees


Amr ibn Awf رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“By Allah, it is not poverty I fear for you, but rather I fear you will be given the wealth of the world just as it was given to those before you. You will compete for it just as they competed for it and it will destroy you just as it destroyed them.”

(Bukhari & Muslim) Hadith in English



_The response of Allãh to shaytãn_


Abu Saeed Al-Khudri رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


Shaytãn said to His Rabb,

“By Your Majesty O Rabb! I will continue to misguide your servants as long as their souls are in their bodies.”

Allãh Ta’ala replied, “By My Honour and Grandeur, I will continue to forgive them as long as they seek forgiveness.”



_Blessing granted in the morning_ Islamic Hadees


Sakhr ibn Al-Ghamidi رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ supplicated:



اللهم بارك لأمتي في بكورها

“O Allah, bless my nation in their early morning.”


Whenever Rasúlullãh ﷺ sent out an army, he would send them at the beginning of the day. Sakhr رضي الله عنه was a merchant and he used to send his merchandise at the beginning of the day, so his trade flourished and he made a fortune.   (Tirmidhi)


_O son of Adam_ Islamic Hadees


Anas رضي الله عنه narrates that he heard Rasúlullãh ﷺ say,


Allãh the Almighty said:


“O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind.


O son of Adam were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you.


O son of Adam were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.” (Tirmidhi)



_Beware of injustice, obscenity & greed_


Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“Beware of injustice, for injustice will be darkness on the Day of Resurrection.


Beware of obscenity, for Allãh does not love obscenity and immorality.


Beware of greed, for it tempted those before you and caused them to make lawful what is unlawful, to shed blood and sever their family ties.”

(Musnad Ahmad)


_Which of the people will be tested the most_


Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqãs رضي الله عنه narrates that I asked Rasúlullãh ﷺ,


Which of the people are most severely tested?”


Rasúlullãh ﷺ replied:


“The Prophets, then the next best and the next best. A man will be tested in accordance with his level of religious commitment. If his religious commitment is strong, he will be tested more severely, and if his religious commitment is weak, he will be tested in accordance with his religious commitment. Calamity will keep befalling a person until he walks on the earth with no sin on him.”   (Tirmidhi)





_Allãh has put Barakah in food_


Jabir bin Abdullãh رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“The food for one person is sufficient for two, the food for two is sufficient for four and the food for four is sufficient for eight. _(i.e. if people eat together and eat in the Sunnah manner with the Du’as, etc. Then a smaller amount of food will be sufficient for many people, as Allãh will place Barakah (blessings) in the food).”_  (Muslim)

From my sister, the surgical nurse and certified CPR teacher:

Please pause for  minutes and read this:


. Let’s say it’s .pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.

. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.

Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.

. Unfortunately, you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.

. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.

. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint has only about seconds left before losing consciousness.

. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!

. A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life.

. Rather than sending jokes, please… contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person’s life.

. If this message comes around you… more than once… please don’t get irritated… You should instead, be happy that you have many friends who care about you & keeps reminding you how to deal with a Heart attack.




_Fulfilling the right of the good_


Usamah bin Zaid رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,


“Upon whosoever good was done and he says in return:


جزاك الله خيرا

May Allãh reward you with best of reward


Then he has fulfilled the rights of the good to the maximum.”   (Tirmidhi)






All are requested to read Sura Dukhaan, please.


The reason for praying early is because as soon as you finish, , angels start making dua for you with ur parents name till Fajr.




The Virtues of reciting Surah Dukhaan

. Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (Radi Allaahu anhu) reported that Allaah’s Messenger s.a.w (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) as saying,

“If anyone recites Haameem Al-Dukhaan any night, a Thousand angels will ask forgiveness for him in the evening.”

[A Hadith narrated in Tirmidhi] Islamic Hadees


. Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (Radi Allahu anhu) narrated that Rasoolullaah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said,

“Whoever shall recite Surah Dukhaan on the eve of Friday, he is forgiven in the morning.”


. Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (Radi Allaahu Anhu) has said: ‘I have heard the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) saying,

“Whoever prays Surah Dukhaan on the eve of Friday or on Friday Allaah Ta’aala makes for him a home in paradise.”‘


Also please read Surah Kahf.


Whoever reads/recites “Sallallahu Alaihi Wasaalam” (smallest Durood Shariff) on Friday times ( tasbeeh) it doesn’t have to be in one go, his/her death will not come until they see their abode in paradise – Subhanallah.


Tell ur family members as well please and you will also be rewarded.

Jazakumullah khairan.




Dhikr is such a gift, but sadly I think it’s underrated.


If we thought about how truly beneficial it is for the mind, the body, and the heart, we’d probably do a LOT more of it than we do.


Think about your stream of consciousness on any given day. It’s likely that you’re either bombarded with negative thoughts or desperately trying to distract yourself from them, and whatever positive thoughts you have are probably so few and far between that their effect is hardly felt.


You may turn to music, tv, browsing the Internet, social media, online shopping, reading a book, exercising, cooking, eating, talking to a friend or loved one, or some other temporary distraction to preoccupy your mind from daily stressors, but there are no guarantees that they won’t lead to even more negativity.


So what are we supposed to do? How can we effectively STOP

our minds from thinking about things that bring us down?





When we focus our minds on a single word or expression that connects us to God, we are instantly anchored to Him. With every repetition, we add a new link, with every link we build a chain.


What does the chain allow us to do? It allows us to float without worry or care, to mentally suspend ourselves by shutting out all the white noise in our life and surrendering to the silence and peace found only with the Divine.


When we say “Alhamdulillah” we float in gratitude

When we say “SubhanAllah” we float in glory

When we say “Allahu Akbar” we float in abundance

When we say “Astaghfirullah” we float in forgiveness

When we say “La illaha ill Allah” we float in unity


And when we say the salawat on our Beloved ﷺ we don’t just float in peace, but we bask in the light and warmth of His love.


For is there any other reason to say the salawat than to relieve our minds from the burdens of this world and fill our hearts with love?


Who among us doesn’t need more love to fill our hearts? And who better to love and feel the love from than the Beloved ﷺ who is more concerned about us than we are for ourselves?!


Indeed, dhikr is a great gift, a remedy for the heart, body, and mind. It’s the only true escape we have, the only “high” we need to get away from this “low” place.


May we be people of dhikr. Amin.


“…Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” (:)


“O ye who believe, remember Allah much. And glorify Him morning and evening..” (:-)


“The similitude of one who remembers his Lord and one who does not remember Him is like that of the living and the dead.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. Islamic Hadees



_Seeking refuge from the evil_


Ziyad bin Ilãqah رضي الله عنه narrates from his uncle that Rasúlullãh ﷺ would say:

_Allãhumma inni A’uthu bika min munkarãtil Akhlãqi wal A’mãli wal Ahwã’i_



“O Allãh, I seek refuge in You from evil character, evil actions, and evil desires.”  (Tirmidhi)


_Do does not leave out the poor_


Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه narrated:

Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,

_When Allãh wishes to do good to a person_


Mu’awiya bin Abu Sufyan رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasúlullãh ﷺ said,

_Guidance for leaders of this Ummah_  Islamic Hadees


It has been narrated by Sa’eed bin Abu Burda through his father through his grandfather that the Prophet of Allah ﷺ sent him and Mu’adh (on a mission) to Yemen, and said (by way of advising them):
