Fear and Hope

I was listening to a talk by Sheikh Omar Suleiman titled 'purification of the soul' in which he quoted the hadith:

"In every day and every night, during the month of Ramadan, there are people to whom Allah grants freedom from the Fire, and there is for every Muslim a supplication which he can make and will be granted". [al-Bazzaar, Ahmad and Ibn Majah; Sahih]

and this in turn reminded me of surah al fatiha where Allah says he is 'The Beneficent, the Merciful'.

David & Wilson

David and Wilson were lost in desert...they were dying of thirst when
they came upon an oasis, and there was a Mosque.

David to Wilson:
"Look there is a mosque, lets pretend we are muslims, otherwise we'll
not get any food or water...I am going to call myself 'Ahmad". Willson
refused to change his name and said:
"my name is Wilson and i will never pretend to be other than what I am!"
The Imam of mosque recieved both well and asked their names...

i am Ahmad

I am Wilson

Imam turned to his helpers and said:
"bring some food for Willson only"

In rememberance of Gaza..

As Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullaah,

inshaAllah you are well, in the best of health and emaan.

A poem someone sent me just thought i'd share it here.

Somedays my heart weeps..
Somedays it is so strong, and even in the best of health it tends to grieve..
My soul leaps at any chance to succeed..
Even then I become oppressed with worldly greed..
My mind can be frail but can also be the master of pain..
But no matter what, whenever I fell, it gave me the space to be restrained..
I got hurt, but I trusted Allah in the fear,
I was blind but believed in Allah, in time will make it all clear..
I fell, but trust in Allah till hope comes near..
They came and took my home, hurt my family and left me to cry..
