[08/15/20]   A PERSON'S MOST BEAUTIFUL ASSET IS NOT A 👨‍🎓HEAD FULL OF 📚KNOWLEDGE,

BUT A HEART FULL OF 💕LOVE,

AND AN EAR👂 REDY TO LISTEN AND A 👋 HAND WILLING TO HELP OTHERS.

[07/07/20]   💥 Many people have trouble understanding the difference between arrogance and dignity.❓

They have one key difference.
♾ Arrogance is confidence and strength rooted in self.

♾Dignity is confidence and strength rooted in God.

Yasmin mogahid.

# Quarantine.

Yunus alaihissalaam was in a complete lockdown inside the belly of the whale. It was absolutely zero connection with the outside world. But he alaihissalaam established 💯 % connection with Allaah subhaanahu wata aa'laa and made such a beautiful dua such that it has been quoted in the Quran. Allaah accepted his dua & released him in a land and he found the society entirely different.
SubhaanAllaah 💜

Today in a partial lockdown situation , let's recite the same dua so that Allaah forgive or sins & release us into a transformed better society through HIS Mercy.

[04/12/20]   *Today's Beautiful Hadith is about Protection*

Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA): that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "Do not turn your houses into graves. Indeed Ash-Shaitan does not enter the house in which Surat Al-Baqarah is recited."

(Jami`at-Tirmidhi, Book 45, Hadith 3118)

Protect your houses by reciting Surah Al-Baqarah. It is a perfect time to start a daily practice of reading Surah Al-Baqarah since we all have time and are at home. Establishing positive daily practices bring immense rewards and this one will protect your house from Shaitan. Use this time wisely, start something that will benefit you in this life and the next Insha'Allah! :-)

[02/07/20]   Before committing any sin, remember three things.

1. Seek refuge in Allah saying, 'A'uthu billaahi minashaytaanir Rojeem'.

2. Remember that the One you are disobeying is the very One who blessed you with countless blessings.

3. Remind yourself that sins may become a barrier to your progress and success.

When Prophet Yusuf (peace be upon him) was being seduced by the wife of Al-Azeez, he recalled all three:

"I seek the refuge of Allah. Indeed, He is my master, Who has made good my residence. Indeed, wrongdoers will not succeed."

(Quran,12:23)

[02/04/20]   "𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝒆𝒙𝒂𝒎𝒑𝒍𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝑷𝒂𝒓𝒂𝒅𝒊𝒔𝒆, 𝒘𝒉𝒊𝒄𝒉 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒓𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒆𝒐𝒖𝒔 𝒉𝒂𝒗𝒆 𝒃𝒆𝒆𝒏 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒎𝒊𝒔𝒆𝒅, 𝒊𝒔 [𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕] 𝒃𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒂𝒕𝒉 𝒊𝒕 𝒓𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒔 𝒇𝒍𝒐𝒘. 𝑰𝒕𝒔 𝒇𝒓𝒖𝒊𝒕 𝒊𝒔 𝒍𝒂𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒊𝒕𝒔 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒅𝒆. 𝑻𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒊𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒆𝒒𝒖𝒆𝒏𝒄𝒆 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒓𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕𝒆𝒐𝒖𝒔..." (Quran, 13: 35)

This verse highlights what awaits the believers who leave off what Allah prohibited and commit to doing what He commanded. The rivers in Paradise are that of honey, Non-intoxicating wine, milk and pure water. As for the Shade in Paradise, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Verily, in Paradise there is a tree in whose shade a rider could travel for one hundred years." (Bukhari)

*Do you want to Open an Âkhira account?*

*Your dream of becoming an Âlim didn't come true?*

*Are you looking for opportunities to earn tremendous of reward?*

Here is *Colombo Institute of Theologians* giving you an opportunity to enroll yourself or your loved ones.

Narrated Ibn Mas`ud:
“I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, *"There is no envy except in two: a person who God has given wealth and he spends it in the right way, and a person whom Allah has given wisdom (ie religious knowledge) and he gives His decisions accordingly and teaches it to the others.* "

Source: Sahih al-Bukhari 1409

Abu Mas’ud reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, *" Whoever guides someone to goodness will have a reward like one who did it.”*

Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 1893.

There are great rewards and virtues promised for those who involve in religious knowledge.

The Institute has prolonged its intake period, so if anyone is interested, please contact :

A reminder
Seats are limited.

[12/18/19]   Imam Ghazali (رحمه الله) mentions that if one's good does not overtake the bad by the age of 40, then there is very little chance to change after that.

"If one's good doesn't outweigh one's bad by the age of 40, let him prepare to take a seat in the fire..."

Our hearts and personalities become solidified by the age of 40, hence less malleable. So to claim (as we often do in our youth), "I'll become religious when I get older", is a fallacy. This statement of Imam Ghazali (رحمه الله) serves as encouragement for us to work seriously and diligently towards our islah (reformation).

20/11/2019

A good opportunity for the sisters,
The Al-Alimah course at our sister institute, Al-Ain focuses on providing a comprehensive and precise understanding of Islam through the help and reference of classical Islamic texts. The Syllabus also aims at giving the students an awareness and understanding of spiritual morality to all women out there.

Their Institute hopes that the duration of 4 years spent in the acquisition of divine knowledge would help the student practice and revive the right teachings of Islam in a profound and fruitful manner.

[11/18/19]   Subhan’Allaah must read!!!❤️

This is one of the most beautiful and amazing advice by the great scholar Imam Ibn al-Qayyim (Rahimahullah)

"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 yourself, nurture yourself and don't give life's events more than what they are really worth.

Know for 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 Allaah. And do not carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allaah. And do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the Hands of Allaah.

Carry one thing: How to Please Allaah. 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 Allaah compensate me with good in this life and the hereafter."

Sadness departs with a Sajdah. Happiness comes with a sincere Du'a. Allaah 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 for other's sake but because Allaah Loves those who do good."

Today was a very successful event at our institute where many student exposed their talents by the help of Allah.
These are a few pictures of the event that was held.

10/11/2019

A program organized by our Institute which provides a stage for all students to put forth their talents.

[11/06/19]   Jafar ibn Muhammad once advised his son Musa al-Kathim:

"My dear son, whoever is content with his portion is rich, and whoever looks toward the wealth of others will die in poverty...

...and whoever exposes someone else a little, Allah will expose him more...

...and whoever unsheathes his sword in transgression will be killed by it...

...and whoever digs a ditch for his brother will fall into it himself.

Beware getting involved in what doesn't concern you, for doing so will humiliate you.

Say the truth whether it's for you or against you and seek counsel from those close to you.

(this next part is made to rhyme so I'll translate it literally) Be of the Quran a Reciter, and to Islam a Caller, and of the good a Commander, and of the evil a Forbidder, and to he who cuts you off One who reaches out, and to he who gives you the cold shoulder an Initiator (initiate conversation with him), and to he who asks of you a Giver."

A few snippets from today's CIT Futsal tournament. An initiative from the students and a few Usthads to work on building sportsmanship and the importance of teamwork.

[11/01/19]   Jundub (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (Peace be upon Him) said, _”He who so acts to show off, Allah will disgrace him on the Day of Resurrection, and he who does good deeds so that people (may hold him in high esteem), Allah will expose his hidden evil intentions before the people on the Day of Resurrection”_.

(Bukhari & Muslim)

One lesson we learn from this Hadith is it shows the consequences of different acts of show-off and informs us that such acts will be a cause of humiliation and disgrace on the Day of Judgement.

[10/28/19]   I have never regretted my silence. As for my speech, I have regretted it over and over again.

(Umar Ibn Al Khattab رضي الله عنه)

[10/27/19]   Jafar ibn Muhammad, descendant of the Prophet, said:

"Beware arguing about the deen, for doing so preoccupies the heart and breeds hypocrisy."

From Al-Dhahabi's Siyar

[10/24/19]   The Theology of Imam Malik, quotes from Al-Dhahabi's Siyar:

"Allah is above the heavens (fee al-samaa) and His knowledge is everywhere, nothing escapes it."

"The Quran is the speech of Allah, and Allah's speech is part of Him, and nothing that is part of Allah is created."

"Whoever says the Quran is created should be whipped and imprisoned."

"People will look at Allah on the Day of Judgment with their own eyes."

Someone asked Imam Malik about seeing Allah in paradise (Surah al-Qiyamah). He replied, "Yes with their very eyes." His interlocutor said, "There is a group that says the meaning of the verse is that they are awaiting His reward." Malik replied, "No, rather they are looking at Allah, haven't you heard of Musa's statement, "My Sustainer, show me that I may look at you!" (7:143) Do you think he asked for the impossible? Allah said "you won't see me" meaning in this world due to it being the realm of transience, when they traverse into the realm of permanence they will look with what is permanent at that which is permanent."
