💭Every believer suffers from weak or low emaan once in a while; as our Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wassalam) said, “Emaan wears out in one’s heart, just as the dress wears out (becomes thin). Therefore, ask Allah to renew emaan in your hearts.” [Mustadrak Al Hakim, Authentic].
🌸Low emaan can easily plunge one into sorrow and despair, sadness and anxiety, as emaan is a safeguard from this. When one suffers from low emaan, it paralyzes one from doing good deeds and removes the productivity in one’s life and worship.
💎One of the beautiful aspects in our deen is that Allah and His Messenger have prescribed actions for us when we are suffering from weak emaan and sorrow, and one of the most potent cures is Dua'a!.
☺Recite the above Dua'a as often as possible to protect ourselves and our imaan. .
How beautiful is Islam❤.
May Allah accept from us all!📚.
Allah is ALWAYS with us❤
Have you watched our LIVE session on depression?💎

"And do not be like those who say, "We have heard," while they do not hear. Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf and dumb who do not use reason." (8:21-22).
🌸In these ayahs, Allah talks about the act of listening. He says, don't be like those people who say they listen but have not really heard. In other words, don't become passive listeners.
This ayah has profound implications on what listeners we need to become. .
💭In today's day and age, we get exposed to so much media. So we may be in a Jumu'ah Khutbah, or we might be listening to a talk or something, but at the same time we'll be updating our FB status, or texting a friend. .
💭Or we may be listening to our parents but are not really paying attention to what they're saying cos we're so engrossed in watching TV. .
💭Allah is reminding us we need to become people of full attention. This ayah is specific to the etiquette people should show to Rasulullah (salallahu alayhi wasalalam) but we too can extract lessons from it. .
💭Allah then compares those who don't listen to animals. You can give an animal a lecture but you don't really see a change in their behaviour. So the experience of one who doesn't pay heed to an advice is like the experience of an animal - it benefits him not. .
💎So the take home message from this verse, is to first, pay attention to what you hear. Secondly, internalise what you hear, or in other words try to implement and take heed of the reminder. .
And Allah knows best❤
"Allah is enough for me"💎 Something we need to keep reminding ourselves when we feel despair.
Here, you are saying you trust Allah. Allah suffices. Your own wishes are just wishes. Allah is in control of every spec on this earth❤
Recite this Dua'a very frequently.
Reminding your soul what really matters and what this life really is.
💎Ramadhan Day 8 / Juzz 8
Say, "Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited to you. [He commands] that you not associate anything with Him, and to parents, good treatment, and do not kill your children out of poverty; We will provide for you and them. And do not approach immoralities - what is apparent of them and what is concealed. And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed] except by [legal] right. This has He instructed you that you may use reason." [6:151] 💭This ayah begins with Allah telling the messenger, 'Come, let me tell you what your master has made *impermissible* for you.' So what we are being told is that the list of actions which will follow this ayah are those things which Allah has made made impermissible/ haraam for us to do.
So Allah begins. Number 1, don't commit Shirk, number 2 do not kill your children out of bankruptcy, number 3, don't engage in shameful acts, number 4, don't engage in murder. So Allah is giving us counsel of all those acts we need to stay away from.
But... In the middle of this ayah, Allah says, 'do good to your parents' or, * be the best you possibly can to your parents* The word احسان - excellence, is used here. 🌸What's so amazing is that in this ayah Allah is supposed to mention all those things which are prohibited, all the *don't do's*' Yet, the only *do* Allah mentions in the ayah is to be good to parents. 💎Do you know why this is powerful? Because Allah is saying to us, that *anything short of THE BEST to your parents, is impermissible.* in other words when it comes to treatment of parents, Allah has one words: IHSAAN - the absolute best and nothing less is acceptable.
Allah didn't even specify an action, so He didn't say Ihsaan in speech, or in attitude, but He kept it open, meaning Ihsaan in everything, despite their attitude towards you.
May Allah give us the ability to serve our parents with Ihsaan and nothing less, ameeen.
And Allah knows best.
A Dua'a we all should have in our "Dua'a list"👌🏻.
💎 This Dua'a really is amazing, where we're asking Allah swt to forgive us, our parents and the believers on the day we all will need to be safe. .
Its so beautiful how this dua'a is essentially a prayer for everyone☺.
For our parents, whom we owe everything to! They sacrificed so much for us, the least we can do is pray for their forgivness🌸. .
We're automatically looking out for eachother and our Ummah, which reflects the importance of praying for our Ummah and loving for them what we love for ourselves😍.
Add this prayer to your dua'a list and recite as often as possible❤
May Allah accept from us all ☺
💎Ramadhan Day 7 / Juzz 7💎
Say, "Not equal are the evil and the good, although the abundance of evil might impress you." So fear Allah , O you of understanding, that you may be successful. [5:100]
In this ayah, Allah commands His Prophet (Salallahu alayhi wasallam), that filth and good are not equal.
The first thing we learn from this ayah is that Allah told His Prophet to say it. Why? Because the Prophet will be the messenger of Allah, determining what is good and what is not good.
We as Muslims need to understand that the example of good will be the Prophet himself, not society. We sometimes follow society in what is normal and what is not and what is acceptable and unacceptable.
But society is always constantly changing, what was good once is not good now. What was rated R once, then changed to PG and now it's fine. Standards in society are always changing. So where do we draw the line?
The Prophet ( Salallahu alayhi wasallam) has been authorised to draw the line. With the order of Allah.
Allah then says "even if the multidude of filth impresses you." Meaning, even if the filth dazzles you, even if everyone is doing the bad... be strange, because good is what is rare.
He then says that only the people of understanding of sound mind will pay heed to this and will be the successful ones.
What is amazing is that the word used for success in this ayah is افلاح which is used when you work really hard for something and then eventually attain success. Allah is reminding us that yes, seeking out the pure from the filth that surrounds us, will require incredible effort, but don't worry *one day* you will see success and will attain that victory.
And Allah knows best.
💎The believers see their sins, no matter how small, like a mountain in front of them that could fall on them any moment.
It is this very fear that results in constantly being cautious of their eemaan, and to ask Allah to forgive faults, and to save from the punishment of the fire of jahhanum.
May Allah make us from the true believers🌸
Embrace your emotions, The explanations of our questions will come to us soon❤

💎Rammadhan Day 6/ Juzz 6
Allah says in Surah Nisa', ayah 147: "What would Allah do with your punishment if you are grateful and believe? And ever is Allah Appreciative and Knowing."
💭 A couple of ayahs before this, Allah explains to us how the hypocrites will be in the lowest depth of hell fire, meaning they will suffer a terrible punishment. But then after saying this, Allah talks about the exception. The exception are the people who repented, turned back to Allah, fixed themselves and made their faith sincere for Allah alone.
Allah says that these people are the ones who will have a great reward and compensation. .
In these ayahs, Allah is addressing all those people who are immersed in sin, those people who feel like they've done so much bad, to the point they feel as though they will be doomed to hell and begin to question why Allah would punish them.
Allah then responds to them in this verse by saying: 'Why do you think Allah wants to punish you?' Or why would he be interested in punishing you? And then He moves on to say, if only you had just shown a little bit of gratefulness and believed, Allah would appreciate that so much.
❤In other words, Allah created us so that He could show us His love and Mercy. If only we showed a little bit of faith and gratefulness, Allah would be appreciative of this. In this ayah, Allah is reminding you that He doesn't want to punish you, His doors of Mercy are wide - stretched and always open, you just need to turn back to Him.
And Allah knows best.
