Inspiring greetings and quotes for Ramadan



For Nigerian Muslims, Ramadan will begin in the evening of Friday May 26, 2017, and probably end in the evening of Saturday, June 24, 2017.

This period of time is traditionally an observation of the first revelation of the Qu’ran to Prophet Mohammed, and takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar.

During Ramadan, Muslims across the globe will refrain from eating, drinking, and other physical needs such as smoking or sex during the daylight hours.

It is a time when they will purify themselves, focus on God and practice sacrifice and self discipline.

Here are relevant greetings and quotes Muslims can identify with during the holy month.

Ramadan greetings


Ramadan Kareem!
(Noble (or Generous) Ramadan!)
Ramadan Mubarak!
(Blessed Ramadan!)
Kul ‘am wa enta bi-khair!
(May every year find you in good health!)
Inspiring Ramadan quotes

‘Periodic fasting can help clear up the mind and strengthen the body and the spirit.’ – Ezra Taft Benson.
‘Fasting is, first and foremost, an exercise for identifying and managing adversity in all its forms. With faith, in full conscience, fasting calls women and men to an extra degree of self-awareness.’ – Tariq Ramadan.
‘Through prayer, fasting, and studying, God will answer.’ – Monica Johnson.
‘A fast is not a hunger strike. Fasting submits to God’s commands. A hunger strike makes God submit to our demands.’ – Edwin Louis Cole.

xx Do you know background of ATTA'HIYYAAT
May 10, 2017, 02:09:36 PM by Isaac Adeniran
Do you know background of ATTA'HIYYAAT, as to why we recite it in every namaz?


Attahiyyaat is a very important 'Dua'  we repeat it in our daily prayers. When I learnt the importance of this, it melted my heart.

Attahiyat is actually a part of conversation between Our Creator Allah SWT and our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu'alayhi wasallam during his journey of Al Isra Wal Miraj.

When Prophet Muhammad Sallalahualayhiwasallam met Allah SWT, he didn't say 'Assalam aleikum'. What is someone going to say when he meets Allah ? We can't wish HIM peace because ALL sources of peace are through HIM.

So Prophet Muhammad Sallalahualayhiwasallam said:

"Attahiyyaatu Lillahi Was Salawatu Wattayyibatu" (All compliments, all prayer and worship are for Allah)

Allah replied:
"Assalamu Alaika Ayyuhannabiyyu 'Warahmatullahi Wabarka'tuhu" (Peace be upon you, Oh Prophet and Allah's Mercy and Blessings).

clip Permisibility of Using Dhikir Beads
December 25, 2016, 03:16:30 AM by Isaac Adeniran
Permisibility of Using Dhikir Beads (Mashabaha)
Compiled by Imam Hakwalab.


Imam Shawkani said in Nayl al-awtar (2:316-317):
The Prophet justified the counting of dhikr on the fingers by the fact that the fingers will be questioned and will speak, that is, they will witness to that effect. It follows that counting tasbih on them, because of this aspect, is better than using dhikr-beads or pebbles. But the two other hadiths [of Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas and Safiyya bint Huyayy] indicate the permissibility of counting tasbih with date-stones and pebbles, and similarly with dhikr-beads because there is no distinguishing factor between them in the Prophet's stipulation to the two women concerning it, and no disapproval of it. As for directing to what is better: this does not negate permissibility (la yunafi al-jawaz). There are reports to that effect.

xx How to Please Allah
March 08, 2016, 01:23:47 PM by Success Writer
Beautifully written !!!

"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 self 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 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, fulfils you and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep...just say "oh Allah...compensate me with good in this life and 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 relieved them from...Nor Will He Forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh...

Live your life with this principle: Be good even if you don't receive good...not because of other's sake but because Allah Loves the good doers".
xx WESTERN EDUCATION "OBSESSION
January 13, 2016, 09:21:52 AM by one9ja
WESTERN EDUCATION "OBSESSION"!!!
.
#CAUSES
1) As soon as a child becomes a year old, we
start buying toys for him or instilling the love of
pictorial objects or cartoons into him...

2) The mother begins to teach him/her baby that: A is for Apple and B is for Ball, but doesn't teach her
baby that A is for Allah and B is for Bismillah continuously.

2)At the age of two or three, we take him into a
day-care centre where his Western education
journey begins.

3) At the age of 3, s/he is in nursery 1 or KG 1.
Children ordinarily don't like going to schools 'cos
they are not used to it. They prefer the company
of Mummy at home. That’s why they all cry when going to school.

4) The child begins to observe:

#Everyday my mummy prepares me for school

#Under the sun or in the rain

#I have a unique uniform for school

#With time, the kid begins to love "schooling" because it looks to him like the utmost reason of
existence.

-5) At the age of 5, he is in Primary one:

#Everyday, the parents wakes him up for school
but not for fajr

#He is quickly bathed on school days but not during
weekends

#His hair is combed and his nails trimmed so that he won't be beaten in school for dirtiness

#Everyday his assignments are checked by his parents but no one bothers about his Islamiyyah assignments

#His school fees are paid on time bt no one
cares about his Islamiyyah dues.

#The father takes him to school early "before"
assembly but the father doesn't take him to Juma'ah early "before" the Khutbah.

#The child begins to reason about all these. So he becomes more inclined to school than Islamiyyah!

6) When exams are approaching, the parents be like:

"Hey, no sleeping tonight, you gotta read, you must
come first in class"

#So the child begins to burn the night candles but no one orders him to wake up for tahajjud, "...he should be tired. After all, he READ overnight...!!!"

##His parents be like:

"I will buy WHATEVER you want for you if you come out with flying colours"

But, alas!!! no one makes such promises concerning his Islamiyyah exams.

##During exam periods, parents be like:
Hey, no more TV until you finish your exams, no more visiting of friends, no more football bla bla bla.

###So the child begins to see exam periods as a
kinda mini judgement day!
.
This is how a child's impression about Western
education is "conditioned" to look so great to him as if its the first purpose of creation!

#LONgTERmEFFECTs
On the long run, the child begins to think wild,
read wide about life and worldly things, but
hardly thinks about the hereafter.

1) He doesn't cry when going to school anymore 'cos he is used to staying away from home.
Because of this, he wants a boarding school or he
wants admission into a uni that's far away from
home! (Especially our Muslim girls)!!

2) They don't wanna be under mum's control
anymore. They wanna become their own "boss"!

3) When a teenager gets an admission into any
institution, he goes crazy, jubilating, and celebrating but when he is given an admission into an Halqah (study circle), he doesn't even
wear a smile on his face!

3) They now have big dreams, career obsession, "I wanna become a Professor by all means", but the young lad doesn't care about becoming a scholar of the Deen!
And the parents too be like:
'If u come out wit first class, I will send you to
"America" for your Masters'...

4) The child's obsession about western education
increases the more!
So s/he wants to earn dat first class by all means,
even by offering herself to the lecturer or sorting
his lecturer!

4) That's why you see that when Undergraduates
finally graduate from the University after their final
exams, they go crazy, jubilating, staining their
shirts wit markers, dancing, jumping, partying as if they have won a ticket to Jannah, you won't blame them, that's  because western education has been made to look like a TROPHY to them!

5) They are graduates and their spoken English is
mindblowing but they can't recite Suratul Faatihah with Tajweed!

6) They contest and compete for SUG presidents, class monitors, school association Presidents. But when it comes to Sallah, they go and stay at the last line!

7) When its time for NYSC, the Muslim girls won't
hesitate to wear bum-shots and t-shirts, they
"happily" run, jug and do exercises with men,
dance and partake in #MissNYSC because they don't give a damn what the religion says about all these because they already believe "anything" is worth
sacrificing for education to prevail.

##Because education has been made to look like a
competition while religion has been made to
look like an "option"!
.
#PROBLEMS...

1) This obsession, makes our women refuse to
get married until they have bagged degrees and
masters!

2) It makes d men lazy to prepare for marriage
until they have gotten a well paying job, a car, a
house and a professorship.

3) It makes our women quote western "proverbs"
often rather than quoting Ahaadith.

4) Our children loves soccer, artistes and
celebrities but they can't mention 10 Companions of the Prophet

5) Our children now have a whole room full of
novels, western books, encyclopedias and the
likes but the only islamic book they have at home is
the Quran!

6) Our kids now think, being an "elite" is d
ultimate success while those "Malams" are
illiterates who are losers in this world!

7) When that student finally gets a job, he becomes "obsessed" with it too at the detriment
of his Deen.

8) He goes to work everyday including sundays

9) He is always on business trips

10) He leaves home for work before his kids wake
up and he goes back home late when his kids
are already asleep.

11) During Subhi, he is on his way speeding to
work, during Dhuhr, he is busy wit office duty,
during Asr he is in a board meeting, during
maghrib he is just closing for d day, during Isha,
he is stuck in the traffic jam, when he gets home
he combines all his Salawaat "if" he has the
strength!

In summary, this is the kind of AQEEDAH that
our obsession for western education has instilled
in us, if not for the timely guidance that Alllah
has bestowed on us, how many are people out
there who are still wallowing in this pool of ignorance thinking dey are d successful ones?
Am not saying we shouldn't go to sch, surely
islam encourages education but not to the
extreme or at d detriment of Deen!

Suggest the possible solution yourselves as two good heads are better than one!

May Allah forgive and guide us, amen!
