Shade of Allah

January 28, 2010

The Prophet Muhammad (salallahu alayhi wasalam) said, 7 types of people will be under the shade of Allah on the Day of Judgement, a day where there will be no shade except His.

They are:

  1. A just ruler
  2. A young person who grows up in worship of Allah
  3. A person whose heart is attached to the Masjid, and eagerly awaits the call to prayer
  4. Two people who meet for the sake of Allah, and depart for the sake of Allah
  5. A man who resists the temptation of a woman of beauty & high position
  6. A person who gives charity from his right hand, and his left hand does not know it
  7. A person who, when alone remembers Allah and his eyes become filled with tears 

(Bukhari & Muslim)



Life for a Muslim

January 28, 2010

My first gem…“Grateful when given, Patient when denied”

This is how the shaykh explained a believer should live their life. Our life is a test, we should thank Allah when we recieve something and show our gratitude, and we should be patient when things do not go our way.

Allah tests us by denying and giving.


The Eternal Journey

January 26, 2010


Asalaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa barakatahu

As some of you may be aware a few of us are attending a double weekend Al-Maghrib seminar called, “The Eternal Journey” taught by Shaykh Reda Bedeir. The course is uncovering the ways in which the Qur’an is the ultimate guide in our journey to the Hereafter.

We have just finished our first weekend and Alhamdulillah it has been amazing! We have gained so much from it already, and can’t wait for the second weekend. The full weekend was  spent in the company of 100’s of other Muslims…we were all there for the same reason, to learn more about our deen. We studied together, prayed together, ate together…it truly was an imaan boost! 

We were inspired so much, we want to share the things we learnt and made an impact on us. Over the next few weeks we will be posting *gems* on the blog…so please keep regularly checking, and we pray that you will benefit from them as did we.
