Indeed and those who accept Allah's guidance, He increases their guidance as He says, “While as for those who accept guidance, He increases their guidance and bestows on them their piety.” [Muhammad 47:17] (Admin Team)

The choice that we make to leave the bondage of this world for the freedom of becoming a slave of Allah is something that many find difficult to understand. But Allah said that when He intends good for someone, He makes understanding of the religion easy.

Allah is a major sin which is caused by submitting to your own desires.

We choose to please people in this life over pleasing Allah, and what is that but shirk? Not every act makes you a mushrik (those who worship others besides Allah), but understand that choosing to please yourself and displeasing

The strength of our Islam is in the bonds of love, kindness and kinship we develop and maintain with each other as the ummah of Rasulullah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

Our reminder. The Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings of be upon him) said: “Whoever recites Ayat al-Kursi immediately after each prescribed there will be nothing standing between him & his entering Paradise except death” (Narrated by al-Nasaa’i in & Ibn Hibban)

Is Allah only watching you when you’re in salaah? Outside of salaah you are still under the command to cover your aura (private parts), both women AND men! So what stops you? It is a great sin in the sight of Allah that you say what you don’t do! (61:3)

Prophet Muhammad said, “The most truthful word ever spoken by an Arab poet is the saying of Labid: ‘Everything besides Allah is in vain.’” (Sahih Muslim)

Like music and art, poetry not guided by faith captivates the heart and desensitizes us to the revelation of Allah - the Qur’an. If poetry is based on faith it is acceptable, but if it is not it becomes idleness and rot to our minds.

As collected in Tirmidhi, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him once remarked, “Four things are from the way of the Prophets: modesty, perfume, the tooth-stick and marriage.” This is what is acceptable, in essence.

Modesty for women is encouraged. Her beauty, including her perfumes should only be to stir the bond of intimacy between herself and her husband in private. Conversely, wearing pleasant scents in public for men is actually from the Sunnah.

It is not like fearing a wild animal, causing us harm. This 'Taqwa' should be the driving force, which keeps us on the right path. Shyness before Allah is the highest level of faith - that we feel shy to abuse the senses in ways that are displeasing to Allah. (2) (admin team)
