Once upon a time, a sparrow stopped talking to Allah. The days were passing by and the sparrow wasn’t saying anything to it’s Rabb.
The sparrow was not speaking with his Rabb and was sad very deeply. The Angels were asking about the sparrow to Allah and Allah was always answering to the angels and saying ”It will come! Because I am the only One Who can hear it and understand the pain in it’s little heart feels.”

After some time, the sparrow flew and landed on a branch and with tears in its eyes. It wasn’t saying anything, it was just quietly waiting. Allah said to the sparrow:

-Tell me! What is the problem that upsets you and drowns your heart with sadness?

The Angels were looking at the sparrow, wondering what it will reply.

The sad sparrow remonstrantly said:

-I had a small nest, which I took shelter when I was tired or cold.
I wasn’t bothering anyone and it was a small place in the big world, it wasn’t affecting anyone.

You saw it too much for me, what was that timeless storm? It ruined my nest and now I have no where to go.

The sparrow couldn’t find the power to continue his speech.
The silence was echoing in Ars-i Rahman and the angels were waiting for Allah’s answer.

Allah said:
-O, sparrow! Aren’t you My servant?
-Of course I am Your servant, my Allah!
-Then why don’t you consent to My actions and why do you question something that you have no knowledge of?

The sparrow lowered his head. Almighty Allah said:
-Didn’t I tell you? Something that you think to be good may end up being bad.

The sparrow was lowering his head in guilt.
Then it answered:
-You told us, my Allah.
-Then why are you questioning something of which you don’t comprehend the hikmah for?
The sparrow couldn’t say a thing.
There was a hikmah of his nest having been ruined but what was it?

Almighty Allah explained the hikmah which the angels and the sparrow were curious about:
-A snake was approaching your nest when you were resting in there. I ordered the storm to ruin your nest to protect you from the snake. Thus, you left there and got rid of the snake.

There were such problems I kept away from you with My Words.
But you can’t see My Words and be an enemy to Me, because of temporary problems.



The Greatest Deception



The Greatest Deception

We came as economic migrants leaving behind our kith and kin, fertile soils, fresh air, the calling of the Adhan, the scent of the fire burning at dawn on the foothills of the mountains and the swirling of the river waters. We survived on meagre means, huddled together in 10’s and 20’s, one elder took care of the entire tribe, family with little means. The reliance, trust, emaan, faith, belief, hope, fear, love, care, need was solely attributed to our Creator, The Most Merciful, The Most Compassionate.

We buried our heads in the sand and the great deception began, whispers, whispers, and more whispers, he started his work and successfully did what he set out from the moment he was given time till the end of time to stir his whispers. What’s his end game? – to lead all those who deny the Creator to a blaze of torment and an eternal damnation.

We lost our identity, our language, our clothing, our food, our respect, our honour, our traditions, our philosophy. From meagre means to lavish, house, car, bank account, from 20 sharing, to only 2 sharing, from opening the door to those in need to slamming the door, from having deep embedded relationships to highly dysfunctional families, communities and bitter tastes in mouths that could not be satisfied.

Yet, the Creator is closer to his Creation for every breath that his Creation takes, but the Created forgot the Creator, at every junction, at every crossroad, at every point of no return, the Creator safe-guarded and protected those who turned to him and bowed in complete and utter submission.

Fajr – 20 to 30, Dhur – 30 to 40, Asr – 30 to 40, Magreb – 40 to 50, Isha – 30 to 40,
Jumah – 1000+

This is the greatest deception, mankind turned away from his Creator and became reliant upon the illusion of the world, yet the greatest command to be ever given was to Submit and bow our heads in humility.

With which face will we face our Creator on the day of Reckoning, with which face will we recognise our Holy and Blessed Prophet?

The Meaning Of Waseela



The Meaning Of Waseela

I got goosebumps. Let me tell you about it…

3 days ago, a friend of mine told me that they are looking for someone to make the food and tea for 10 people in a factory. He told me that I know a lot of people and if any one of them was looking for a job, he asked me to forward him to them.
I just ignored it, I even thought why would I care to bother.

My daughter’s teacher just called. She told me “There’s a child that is an earthquake victim, they lost everything they had, the mother and her three children were left alone in a difficult situation, the woman’s family told her to give the children to the dormitory and come back, the woman can only make food and tea because her one arm was injured during the earthquake, you know a lot of people, keep that in mind.” I can’t describe the state of shock I felt at that moment…

We immediately organized a meeting and got the job done. My Allah will make me the intermediary for the sustenance of those 3 children…
Anyone who doubts His greatness will turn into a stone…

Abu Mas’ud ‘Uqbah bin ‘Amr Al-Ansari Al-Badri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Whoever guides someone to virtue will be rewarded equivalent to him who practices that good action”.
