Please keep the Palestinians and Syrians families in your sincere Dua’s, as they are going through a very tough time and testing right now. O Allah, send your blessings, mercy and help towards them and protect our innocent brothers and sisters in Islam, Ya Allah, send the help through your Angels towards them, the way you helped in the battle of Badr Ya Rabb Aameen Thumma Aameen
And keep the prayer established at the two ends of the day and in some parts of the night; indeed good deeds wipe out the evil deeds; this is an advice to those who heed it.[Hud 11:114]
This is the perpetual prayer of Islam and the foundation of the whole religion just as the Name of God is the expression of the Divine essence. As a formal practice it consists of repeating the Name (Allah) silently in the heart perpetually, dedicating every heartbeat to God. It is the simplest and the greatest of meditations. Sit quietly and hear the Name in your heart – Allah! Allah! Allah! Then hear the Name in your heart throughout your day, in the world,wherever you may be,at all times. The Dhikr is the journey to the oasis of the moment.
It is reported – and Allah knows best – that al-Junayd, a friend of God – may Allah be pleased with him – said, “A servant should overcome his soul, and be continuous in the remembrance of his Lord, establishing the rights of his Lord, focusing upon Him with his heart, the light of fear setting a blaze his heart, whilst drinking from the vessel of pure love, and certain hidden realities being unveiled for him. So when he talks, it is due to Allah, when he speaks, it is from Allah, when he moves, it is by the Command of Allah, and when he is serene, then it is from Allah. He belongs to Allah, is for Allah and is with Allah.”
Surely We have made all that is on the earth an embellishment for it in order to test people as to who of them is better in conduct. [18:7]
Everything that exists, except Allah, the Creator, is created by Him. Allah has full power over every bit of His creation. Allah is not created; He existed always, having His attributes; He will never perish, nor will His attributes diminish. Among His attributes is that He has knowledge of all His creation, that He sees the seeable and that He hears the hearable, and His knowing, seeing and hearing are in no way similar to ours. Allah speaks and His Speech is not made up of language or sound, nor does it resemble the speech of man in any way. He does not need any of His creation for His existence and He does not resemble any of His creation in any way. This means that Allah is not a man or a woman; He is not “a Father” or “a Mother”. He does not have a wife, a mother, a father, a son, or a daughter; He has no equal or partner. Allah does not divide into parts; no creation, including man, has “a part of Allah” in him, nor can any creation become like Allah. He is the only God.
Allah existed eternally before He created any place, such as Paradise (Heaven), the skies, earth, or any planets. Hence, we know He is now as He was before He created all these places; He does not need any place to exist in. Allah has always known about every bit of His creation; there is no thing in His creation which escapes or defeats Him. No thing goes against the will of Allah. Both good and evil occur by His Will. However, Allah orders humans to do only the good; humans make the choice to obey or disobey Allah. Our ability to do good or evil is given to us by Allah, the Exalted.
And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah , if you should be truthful. (2:23)
