“When she is a daughter, she opens a door of Jannah for her father. When she is a wife, she completes half of the deen of her husband. When she is a mother, Jannah lies under her feet – If everyone knew the true status of a muslim women in Islaam, even the men would want to be women” [Akram Nadawi]

‎”Don’t be sad if Allah separates you from something or someone you love. If only we knew what His plans were for us, our hearts would melt with the warmth of His love.”

Be aware of every hour and how it passes and only spend it in the best possible way; do not neglect yourself, but keep accustomed to the noblest and best of actions, and send to your grave that which will please you when you arrive to it. Imaam ibn Al-Jawzee

When someone makes a mistake and commits a error, we are quick to jump to conclusions about them and we start bashing them. However, some of our pious predecessors would encourage us to find up to 70 excuses for our fellow brothers and sisters, and if we can’t, we can say “maybe he/she has an excuse that I’m not aware of!” And this reminder could be exhibited in our everyday interactions.

When you are with your spouse or brothers/sisters, try only to use positive words that will benefit you instead of using harsh ones that hurt your relationship. Indeed, you can disagree with other people, but how you disagree will be what matters! We are told,

“Tell My worshipers, that they should say words that are the finest, satan would arouse discord among them; he is the clear enemy of mankind” (17:53)
To love without condition, to talk without intention, listen without judging, to give without reason and to care without expectation.
So let’s not let Satan bring enmity amongst us and win. Indeed, he is our enemy so let’s treat him as such.

What is this world but a dream that a sleeper sees – he delights in it for a few moments, and then wakes up to face reality. Scholar: Al-Hasan Al-Basree

Woman was made from man’s rib, to protect his heart.

Perhaps a great deed is belittled by an intention. And perhaps a small deed, by a sincere intention, is made great. Scholar: Abdullah ibn Al-Mubarak

A man will never fear something besides Allah unless it be due to a disease in his heart. Ibn Taymiyyah

I have never debated with a knowledgeable person, except that I won the debate, and I have never debated with an ignorant person, except that I lost. Scholar Name: Imam Ash-Shaafi’ee

The one who memorizes the Qur’an must be known by the nights when people are sleeping. By his days when people are eating. By his sadness when people are rejoicing. By his weeping when people are laughing. By his silence when people are indulged in vain talk. And by his humility when people are boasting.
One should be just toward his enemies and those whom he dislikes. His hatred should not cause him to be unjust to them, just as his love for himself and his kin should not prevent him from establishing justice against them. This hatred should not make him do wrong, just as that love should not stop him from doing right.

I believe in Islam like I believe in the rising of the sun. Not only because I can see it but because by it I see everything.

“Truly in the heart there is a void that can not be removed except with the company of Allah. And in it there is a sadness that can not be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that can not be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him. And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness.”

When describing the creation of the “heavens and the earth,” the Qur’an does not discount the theory of a “Big Bang” explosion at the start of it all. In fact, the Qur’an says that “the heavens and the earth were joined together as one unit, before We clove them asunder” (21:30). Following this big explosion, Allah “turned to the sky, and it had been (as) smoke. He said to it and to the earth: ‘Come together, willingly or unwillingly.’ They said: ‘We come (together) in willing obedience'” (41:11). Thus the elements and what was to become the planets and stars began to cool, come together, and form into shape, following the natural laws that Allah established in the universe.

When you become Muslim you lose friends but you gain sisters!
