Man has two standings; in Salah & in qiyamah before Allah
The 2nd will be according to the 1st
Focus on the 1st, the 2nd will ease.
Amazing advice by the great theologian and philosopher, Ibn Al-Qayyim: ra
“A friend will not (literally) share your struggles, and a loved one cannot physically take away your pain, and a close one will not stay up the night on your behalf. So look after yourself, protect it, nurture it. And don’t give life’s events more than what they are really worth.
Be certain that when you break, no one will heal you except you, and when you are defeated, no one will give you victory except your determination. Your ability to stand up again and carry on, is your responsibility.
Do not look for your worth in the eyes of people; look for your worth from within your conscious. If your conscious is at peace then you will ascend high. And if you truly know yourself, then what is said about you won’t harm you.
Do not carry the worries of this life. Because this life is for Allah. And do not carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allah. And do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the Hands of Allah.
Carry one thing: How to Please Allah. Because if you please Him, He Pleases you, He fulfills your needs and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep. Just say “O Allah! Compensate me with good in this life and in the hereafter”.
Sadness departs with a Sajdah. Happiness comes with a sincere du’a. Allah does not forget the good you do, nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you removed from them. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry, but you made it smile.
Live your life with this principle: Be good even if you don’t receive good. Not for the sake of others, but because Allah loves the good doers.”
Shared by Shaykh Abdul Raheem Limbada
Some people frequent restaurants and takeaways during the night, attracted by special offers. Such offers deprive them of the great treasures offered by Allāh ta‘ālā for performing tarāwīh and tahajjud. In addition, many involve themselves in sin and lā ya‘nī (futile activities) and waste any spiritual benefits they had gained that day.

Guidance and advice for the Blessed Month from Hadrat Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh
During Dhikr, a thought came to my mind that Allah is our real friend, and a friend never abandons…. So how will Allah ever abandon us??
Yes! We need to make friends with Allah first. We have made friends with everyone but Allah, including Iblees mal’oon, (naoozu billah).
We need to give up all that and make friendship with Allah, then see how Allah’s kind attention is attracted towards us.
والله ولي المتقين
الله ولي الذين آمنوا
وهو يتولي الصالحين
May Allah give us Tawfeeq.

Boxing Day sales message!!!!!
By Shaikh abdul Raheem Hafizahullah
When going in a shopping centre keep reading 4th kalima
‘La ilaha illallahu Wahdahu La Shareeka Lahu, Lahul Mulku wa Lahul Hamdu Yuhyi wa Yumeetu Bi Yadihil Khayr wa huwa Alaa kulli shay’in Qadeer’; The Hadith says you will gain one million hasanaat
من دخل السوق فقال لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك وله الحمد يحي ويميت وهو حي لا يموت بيده الخير وهو على كل شيء قدير كتب الله له ألف ألف حسنة ومحا عنه ألف ألف سيئة ورفع له ألف ألف درجة

Also keep busy in other Azkaar.
2) Don’t buy anything you don’t need. This could make you shopaholic and greedy.
3) Set a limit of how much you are going to spend. Don’t overspend!
Allah says in Surah Bani Israeel:
“And give the relative his right, and [also] the poor and the traveler, and do not spend wastefully.
Indeed, the wasteful are friends of the shaytaan, and Satan has always been ungrateful to his Lord.
And if you [must] turn away from the needy awaiting mercy from your Rabb, of which you are hopeful, then speak to them in a gentle manner.
And do not make your hand tight [as though it’s] chained to your neck nor extend it completely and [thereby] become blamed and insolvent.
Indeed, your Lord extends provision for whom He wills and restricts [it]. Indeed He is fully aware of and watchful over the conditions of His slaves. [Quran 17: 26-30]
4) Avoid purchasing on credit cards. One Hadith in sahih bukhari says:
لا اشتري شيا و ليس عندي ثمنه”
“I will not purchase something for which I have nothing to pay” also there will be a risk of falling into interest.
5) Don’t forget to plan your day around your salah times (no excuse for making salah qaza)
Gents! It’s Juma today! Be careful! Don’t miss your Friday Salah at masjid! Surah kahf, Durood sharif.
6) Be in state of wudhu when you leave, so when time for salah comes you can nip into the changing rooms to pray …
7) Just in case Wudhu breaks and water would be hard to find, Take a bottle of water with you … Ladies there should be enough room in your hand bag for a bottle of water.
8) Have a compass with you… If you have a smart phone download an app
9) When it’s time for prayer don’t feel shy, just pop into that changing room or even ask the shop assistant if you can pray…
10) Those of you going to big shopping centres ask at the information desk whether there are provisions for a prayer/ quiet/ multi- faith room… If you don’t ask you won’t know.
