Heavenly Food

The body is earthly and its nourishment comes from the earth. The spirit, however, is celestial and its nourishment comes only from Heaven.

In Ramadan we should deny our overindulged bodies their earthly gratification and instead provide heavenly food for our malnourished souls.

The Evil Eye 

New car? Take a selfie. Put it on social media. 

Child’s birthday? Take a slefie. Put it on social media. 

New job? Take a selfie. Put it on social media. 

Nice meal? Take a selfie. Put it on social media. 

Got married? Take a selfie. Put it on social media. 

Performed Hajj/Umrah? Take a selfie. Put it on social media. 

New look? Take a selfie. Put it on social media. All done? 

Then we wonder why things go terribly wrong. 

Allah Almighty says ‘And from the evil of the envier when he envies’. (113:5)
The Messenger صلى الله عليه وآله وصحبه وسلم said ‘the evil eye is real’. (Hadeeth)
A private life, is a safe life. But it’s difficult to kill the ego and desire, and not share half of our lives with half the world. 
May Allah Almighty protect us all from the evil eye
Moulana Khalid Docrat

Allah Loves the Good Doers

​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.”
