One of my friends is one of the best people in terms of his manners, religious commitment and intelligence. He was an Imam of a mosque right next to his house. However, I often used to hear him criticised by many people and be amazed at that, yet unable to find a justification.Continue reading
“O mankind! There has come to you a good advice from your Lord (i.e. the Quran, ordering all that is good and forbidding all that is evil), and a healing for that (disease of ignorance, doubt, hypocrisy and differences, etc.) in your breasts, – a guidance and a mercy (explaining lawful and unlawful things, etc.) for the believers.Say: “In the Bounty of Allah, and in His Mercy (i.e. Islam and the Quran); -therein let them rejoice.” That is better than what (the wealth) they amass.” (Al-Qur’an, Surah Yunus,Ch.10: Verses 55-58) (Muhsin Khan Translation) Continue reading

By looking at darkness of your sins and faulty sides, don’t stop from heading toward change. Sometimes, when you look at your past sins and faults, you may feel painful regret and sorrow. But, you should not allow these regret and sorrow to bring you down from change and being optimistic. Instead you should use them to flee from committing the same sins and faults. Many people when they don’t regret for their past sins, they commit the same sins and faults. They don’t take lessons from their life. They remain there without change. So when you regret for your past sins, ask Allah for forgiveness. Continue reading

Life’s greatest tragedy consists of men and women who earnestly try, and fail! The tragedy lies in the overwhelmingly large majority of people who fail, as compared to the few who succeed. I have had the privilege of analyzing several thousand men and women, 98% of whom were classed as “failures.” There is something radically wrong with a civilization, and a system of education, which permit 98% of the people to go through life as failures. My analysis work proved that there are thirty major reasons for failure, and thirteen major principles through which people accumulate fortunes. In this chapter, a description of the thirty major causes of failure will be given. As you go over the list, check yourself by it, point by point, for the purpose of discovering how many of these causes-of-failure stand between you and success.

“Stay away from three destroyers, hold up three savers.
Three destroyers are following desires, self-admiration(ujb), avarice (shuhha)

People, however, tend to overlook the truth because their hearts are not touched by its invigorating light. Hence, they remain preoccupied with petty concerns, lost in a perpetual maze. They are only awakened when faced with inevitable doom, looking at the suffering that awaits them and enduring a humiliatingly and strong reproach: Continue reading
While finding solutions for love sickness, you may face different hardships along the way. You may feel sorrow, inner burning, yearning, anguish, depression, sleeplessness and etc. The best solutions for the person who is undergoing love sickness are to remember Allah (Zikrullah) much, being busy with good deeds, seeking Islamic knowledge, remembering life’s goals , if possible getting married, fasting and staying from looking haram things. When you repeat some zikr on your tongue, your heart gets serenity, tranquility and calm. But when you remember that person, what you get are sorrow, inner burning, confusion, anguish, sleeplessness and etc. Yes of course, it is out of your capacity to resist remembering that person completely. What you should do are being patient and making du’aa not to fall into haraam things. Patience converts bitter to sweet. “O Allah protect us as You have protected Your chosen servants from sheytan (Satan).” Continue reading
