Journey4Jannah

Assalamwa’alaikum

We are on a journey. I don’t even need to elaborate or explain. Simply: we are on a journey. But where to? Isn’t that the burning question? What is our destination and is dunya just a stop in the journey?

I’m in love with it because that’s just it: dunya is just a stop. We are journeying, we are traveling and in sha Allah we are travelling right back home. Back to eternal happiness and pleasure where there lies delights and wonders that will only last forever.

Dunya is the stop just as you stop when you are travelling by plane. Sometimes you take a stop in a different country and you are forced to wander around in the airport and await the time when you can reboard the plane and finally reach your destination. Well that is dunya: a stop. We wander around, we buy some, we rest some and then we leave. But…

So ask yourself: do you want Jannah? You will most definately reply yes because that’s what we all want but now really ask yourself after looking at your actions. After thinking about what you do on a daily basis, then ask yourself: do I want Jannah? We utter yes with our tongues but do our actions tell otherwise?

We all want to go back home but we have to work for it and we have to ask for it so let’s do both. Let’s work for it and ask for it and never lose hope.

 This stop will cause us pain. It will hurt. It will make us cry and sometimes things will get so hard we’ll just feel like giving up. But we cannot give up. We can never give up or lose sight of our goal our aim.

There’s our way, this is our journey and we’re nearly home in sha Allah.This verse soothes my heart when in troubled waters subhanAllah :’)

My dear sisters I ask you from the bottom of my heart:

 And finally and I pray for this every day:

 Ameen thumma ameen!

Keep going sisters because we’re nearly home.

Wasalamwa’alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

Mercy of Allah SWT

Assalamwa’alaikum sisters! 😀

SubhanAllah been really busy with my exams and work and so haven’t been able to blog much so apologies, please forgive x

In sha Allah today I wanted to speak about the mercy of Allah SWT

The reason as to why I wanted to post regarding this particular topic is because this is something that I, as well as others, feel like I am constantly despairing about. And subhanALLAH we feel trapped after we sin and suffocated by the enormity of our bad deed or by it’s severity. But ALLAHU AKBAR His mercy far supersedes His wrath.

No sin is greater than His mercy so we should always turn back. The Shaitaan will try his utmost to convince us that we are too bad and that we will never be forgiven but ignore his whispers. As long as we are sincere then in sha Allah Allah SWT will forgive us.

SubhanALLAH never despair over His mercy, always have hope in sha Allah for truly a life without hope is death. This is something that I personally have battled with for a long time and will continue to do so until I finally realise how great Allah SWT’s mercy is.

The past is something that we can never ever change but alhamdulilah without it we would never be where we are today. Perhaps it was that through one sin in the past that Allah SWT allowed us to come closer to Him when otherwise we would have stayed blind and ignorant of the truth.

Seek His mercy after sin and in sha Allah He will forgive you and then move on. Don’t let the past haunt you, leave it where it’s meant to be but carry the lessons you learn from it in your heart always so you may always remember where you came from and how much you’ve moved on by His Mercy. And to also remind yourself how much you don’t want to slip back into that place where your nightmares reside.

This is not something new I am saying for we have always known this or been taught this but I guess this is a little reminder for all of us who feel the walls closing in after we sin. Who feel that their heart will never be cleansed of these bad deeds and that there is no hope. For as long as we keep faith in Allah SWT there is always hope.

SubhanALLAH before we begin something, anything what do we recite? ‘Bismillah hirrahma nirahim’ which translates as ‘In the name of Allah SWT the Most Beneficent and the Most Merciful’ so how can we despair? Wee say this dua, this supplication so many times a day but do we ever reflect upon it? We are constantly saying that Allah SWT is the most merciful but when the calamity hits us, when we commit that bad deed, how many of us run to Him full of regret and more importantly hope begging for His mercy? SubhanALLAH we don’t many a time for we give up before the fight has even properly started.

In sha ALLAH could go on for a long time talking about His mercy but I think that much is sufficient for one post. In sha Allah would love to next time maybe share my personal inspirations and how I try to overcome this barrier that stops me from running back to Him after I sin. I don’t really enjoy speaking about my personal life but in sha Allah khayr if it helps or inspires someone else then I will try to share.

I write this post first and foremost to remind myself and then to remind others in sha ALLAH as this is something that is very much an ongoing struggle for me so keep me in your duas in sha Allah…

Jazakumullah Khairan ukties x

W’salam

To my Syrian Sisters:

Assalamwa’alaikum

Another poem regarding Syria and specifically my message to our Syrian sisters

Bismillah:

‘Oh Syria, the land of the blessed

Oh Syria, the land of the oppressed

Oh Syria, it has to be confessd

Oh Syria, my heart bleeds and finds no rest

But it’ nothing compared to how you’re feeling

From the constant bombs, you’re reeling

Your freedom these tyrants are stealing

But don’t worry for on that Day, they’ll be kneeling

and begging for His mercy

from the punishment that He will decree

For Allah SWT is the Most Just and He will set you free

No more tears shed, no more agony

No more pain and torture;you will have liberty

No more violence and innocent people dying

No more vulnerable, helpless babies crying

No more fears

Because Allah SWT hears your prayers

So know that He is always near

Through all the heart-aching pain

Remember He is closer you than your jugular vein

My dearest sisters, I can’t cry enough for you

Your the soldiers of this ummah, staying strong and true

Keeping faith regardless of what hardships you go through

My tears themselves weep for you

How can I forget you my beautiful sisters? How can I?

These tyrants will be held accountable for each tear you cry

And each bomb that they drop down on you from the sky

Such cowards, staying up so high

But for these tyrants the end is nigh’

Once again I can only ask you to remember our Syrian sisters and brothers in your duas

Silence is betrayal so speak out against this oppression for we will be held accountable too on the Day Of Judgement

JazakAllah khair

Assalamwa’alaikum
