“Whoever glorifies Allaah (says Subhaan Allaah) thirty-three times immediately after each prayer, and praises Allaah (says Al-hamdu Lillaah) thirty-three times, and magnifies Allaah (says Allaahu akbar) thirty-three times, this makes ninety…-nine, then to complete one hundred says Laa ilaaha…
“So, seeing France’s anti-burqa rhetoric through the prism of my experiences in Amman, and the experiences of the women I have spoken to, I can’t help but return to the dreadful condescension behind the assumption that a woman does not have a right to construct her own identity”—Natalia Antonova (via Gemma) (via thinkhalal) (via imyourdarling)
“Sa’d ibn Waqas reported that the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “The supplication made by the Companion of the Fish (Prophet Yunus) in the belly of the fish was, ‘La ilaha illa anta, subhanaka, inni kuntu minaz-zalimin (there is no god but You, You are far exalted and above all weaknesses, and I was indeed the wrongdoer)’. If any Muslim supplicates in these words, his supplication will be accepted.” In another report we read, “I know words that will cause Allah to remove one’s distress. These are the words (of supplication) of my brother Yunus, peace be upon him,”—-Tirmidhi (via tezuka7)
“May Allah swt forgive us for our sins. Past, present and future sins. The ones we commit intentionally and those we commit unintentionally. Oh Allah swt you are all knowing, the most merciful the most forgiving. Please forgive us.”—IslamiConcepts- Dua (via islamiconcepts) (via hayaat)
In-Sha-Allah = God willing (we should say this whenever we talk about an event in the future)
Subhan-Allah = Glorified is Allah (It’s one of the most common words use to praise Allah, along with Alhamdulillah and Allahu-Akbar)
Al-Hamdu-Lillah = All praise (and thanks) belongs to Allah (We say this all the time, like when being thankful, or just generally praising Allah)
Allahu-Akbar = Allah is Great (Another common word used to praise Allah)
As-tagh-firullah = I seek forgiveness from Allah (we are taught to say this frequently, because we are always prone to sinning, and we are always in need of Allah’s forgiveness)
Maa-sha-Allah = The closest English translation is “God has willed it” (we say this in events of joy and praise, or to an individual for a good accomplishment, or upon hearing good news, and things of this nature)
In case some of you wonder why we point our index finger during tahiyatul akhir when we say “la ilah ha iallah(points finger) wa ashadu ana muhammaddur rasulullah” it’s because we are stressing on the point that there is only one god and there is no god but allah. It is a…
A student asked: If the shaytan is locked up during Ramadan, why do we still do bad things? A teacher answered: What happens when you stir a cup of coffee for a long time? After you take the spoon out the coffee continues to stir on its own, right? Shaytan is that stirrer and we are his coffee. Our bad habits continue to stir even when he is away.
“Do not say, that if the people do good to us, we will do good to them; and if the people oppress us, we will oppress them; but determine that if people do you good, you will do good to them; and if they oppress you, you will not oppress them”—Prophet Muhammad SAW (via amnasaeed) (via rangeenhaseena) (via ma-salaama) (via mount-soof) (via muslimahaishat) (via dryleavesonroses)
It's those moments when your forehead touches the ground when you're praying, or when you walk outside all covered up in blazing weather or when you're reading the Quran and there's tears in your eyes. Those moments when you know that you don't need anything or anyone but Allah. Those are the moments I live for.
“We are modest women who chose to cover for Allah, no matter what time we live in, no matter what new trend or law. Our Hijab does not change, our firm determination does not weaken; And we will not be affected by the opinions of mere people cause its Allah’s Pleasure we’re seekin’! So Sisters let’s stay firm and keep …up with our Hijab, we are the most beautiful role models for the Ummah, as well as for all mankind.”
“If you guarantee me six things on your part, I shall guarantee you paradise: speak the truth when you talk, keep a promise when you make it, when you are trusted with something fulfill your trust, avoid sexual immorality, lower your eyes and restrain your hand from injustice.”—Prophet Muhammad SAW (via amnasaeed) (via islamiconcepts) (via dryleavesonroses) (via imyourdarling)
“If you want the door of hope opened for you, then consider what comes to you from Him; but if you want the door of sadness opened for you, then consider what goes to Him from you.”—Ibn Ata’illah (via kokse-kokse) (via just-her) (via muhmen) (via mohksin)
“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah , witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do.”—[Qur’an, 5:8] (via hydrogenbromide) (via perilsofbeingin3d) (via mohksin)
Be careful not to make a woman cry, because Allah (swt) counts her tears. A woman came out of a mans’ rib. Not from his feet to be walked on, not from his head to be superior over, but from his side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved.
"Turn not your cheek away from people in scorn and pride, and walk not on earth haughtily; for God does not love anyone who acts proudly and boastfully. Be modest in your bearing and lower your voice; for the ugliest sound is the donkey’s braying."
