Brothers and sisters who are attending school anywhere from middle school to the college or university level require nourishment for the soul and body that can only be found in a vibrant and strong Islamic community. IANT Youth intends to serve those needs, as well as adapt and grow to create a fun, energizing, and refreshing youth culture around the masjid – one that creates, strengthens, and motivates the future leaders of the Muslim Ummah of America.

Mission: To cater to the growing needs of the youth community in Richardson, TX and the surrounding North Texas areas.

Reflect over these verses

Huge lesson for us all that deeds done without sincerely for Allah alone are all useless. How many people do good deeds for the public whether muslim or non muslim?

Great reminder!

Two reasons why we fall short and slip in our religion, a golden piece of advice that deserves to be read often...

[06/10/20]   The scholars mention that the one who commits a sin out of desire and weakness then repentance is hoped for that person.

However, the one who commits sin out of arrogance then its unlikely for repentance for Such a person.

Why?

When Adam committed the sin he did it out of desire and weakness. He turned to Allah for his mistake and repented for his sin which he realized.

However, Iblis committed the sin out of arrogance and didn’t think he did anything wrong. He blamed Allah for it and did not acknowledge his sin.

There’s a big difference between the two.

Sometimes a person may fall into a sin but the difference is the one who did it out of desire and weakness knows it’s wrong and admits they are weak. They say when reminded that you’re right it’s a sin and I admit I’m weak and have shortcomings. May Allah forgive me and make dua for me. For such a person there is hope.

However, the one who commits the sin out of arrogance when reminded they say don’t judge me. Only God can judge me or they say it’s between me and Allah and they make excuses for their sin. The person makes excuses for their sins in order to continue in their arrogance without taking heed when reminded. This kind of attitude resembles iblis and destruction may happen to such a person.

This is something to reflect upon and take reminder from!

- Set a standard for yourself, if you find strength within youself, add to that standard, if you don't find that strenght, then do not drop from your standard. (I explain this principle in the video).

Remember that the most beloved deeds to Allah are the ones that are done consistently, even if they are tiny.

The benefit of being consistent is that you're always ready & prepared to meet Allah, because the path of consistency, is a path that Allah loves.

[05/30/20]   EFFECTS OF SINS AND THE

EFFECTS OF FORGIVENESS

This list is based on Ibn Al Qayyim’s book (الداء والدواء) – “Sickness and Cure”.

ر
1. Sins deprive us from knowledge and from the light that’s cast in the heart.

Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) will open
knowledge for us when we seek forgiveness.

2. Sins deprive a person from provision which he is unaware of.

Seeking forgiveness will lead to be provision which one would not expect.

3. Sins brings about feelings of awkwardness between us and Allah (سبحانه وتعالى). We will have
سبحانه ( no feelings towards Allah .astaghfarAllah ,)وتعالى

Seeking forgiveness will make us have feelings for Allah and feelings of )سبحانه وتعالى(
affinity towards Him.

4. Sins cause a person to be detached from the people and to feel awkward when seated with good people.

Seeking forgiveness will make us relaxed and there will be no barrier between us and people of goodness and knowledge.

5. Sins make our affairs harder, and when we think a door is going to open it closes.

Seeking forgiveness will open closed doors and make our affairs easy. We should not look at people or what is the sin itself, but just seek forgiveness.

How fast Ramadan came and is gone. Our lives are passing by the same way

#The_virtue_of_fasting_six_days_of_Shawwaal⁣

Abu Ayyub reported:⁣

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days of Shawwaal, it will be as if he fasted for a lifetime.”⁣

[Sahih Muslim 1164, Sunan Abi Dawud 2433, Jami` at-Tirmidhi 759, wording here is from Sunan Ibn Majah 1716. Grade: Sahih]⁣

The Prophet (ﷺ) explained this when he (ﷺ) said: “Whoever fasts for six days after (Eid) al-Fitr has completed the year: (whoever does a good deed (hasanah) will have ten hasanah like it).” According to another report: “Allah has made for each hasanah ten like it, so a month is like fasting ten months, and fasting six days completes the year.”⁣

[An-Nisaa’i and Ibn Maajah. See also Sahih al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1/421]⁣

Also narrated by Ibn Khuzaymah with the wording: “Fasting for the month of Ramadaan brings the reward of ten like it, and fasting for six days brings the reward of two months, and that is the fasting of the whole year.”⁣

The Hanbali and Shaafa’i fuqaha’ explained that fasting six days of Shawwaal after fasting Ramadaan makes it as if one has fasted for an entire year of obligatory fasts, because the multiplication of the reward applies even to naafil fasts, because each hasanah brings the reward of ten like it.⁣

Another of the important benefits of fasting six days of Shawwaal is that is makes up for any shortfall in a person's obligatory Ramadaan fasts. On the Day of Resurrection, some of his naafil deeds will be taken to make up the shortcomings in his obligatory deeds, as narrated..⁣

Abu Hurairah reported:⁣

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The first of man's deeds for which he will be called to account on the Day of Resurrection will be Salat. If it is found to be perfect, he will be safe and successful; but if it is incomplete, he will be unfortunate and a loser. If any shortcoming is found in the obligatory Salat, the Glorious and Exalted Rubb will command (although He knows best) to see whether His slave has offered any voluntary Salat so that the obligatory Salat may be made up by it. ⁣

Then the rest of his actions will be treated in the same manner.”⁣

[Riyad as-Salihin Hadith 1081]

[05/25/20]   Shaykh Hamad al-‘Uthmān - may Allāh grant him success - said in his explanation to Fadl-ul-Islām, p. 229:

“The fasting person, Allāh repays him for his performing the act of worship of fasting in this life through abstaining from food by honoring him with eating the food of Paradise and its fruits. Allāh ﷻ said: {Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent on before you in days past.} [Al-Hāqqah: 24]

Mujāhid said: ‘The days of fasting.’ [Rumūz al-Kunūz 8/261]”

Ramadan Rush - What is the best manner in ending the month of Ramadan? What are some signs that Allah has accepted my Ramadan?

END THE MONTH WITH SEEKING FORGIVENSS

Seal The Month Of Ramadan With Seeking Forgiveness

Ibn Rajab [رحمه الله] said:

❝Seeking forgiveness is a seal for all righteous deeds.

It seals the prayer, Hajj, Qayyam Al-Layl the night prayer and it seals gatherings.

Therefore, if it was a Remembrance of Allaah then it is like putting a stamp of seal on it and if there were mistakes and deficiencies then it would be an expiation for it.

Likewise it is befitting to complete the month of Ramadan with seeking forgiveness.

Alī  is reported to have said,

“Have more concern for the acceptance of your deeds than the fervor by which you performed them, for have you not heard God  say, “God  only accepts the offering of the God-conscious (mutaqqīn).

WHAT MATTERS THE ENDING OF OUR DEEDS SO BEG ALLAH FOR FORGIVNESS AND ASK FOR ACCEPTANCE

Ka’b said:

Whoever fasts Ramadan while inwardly saying: Once the month is over, I will disobey Allah; this person’s fasting is rejected. And whoever fasts the month while inwardly saying: Upon completion of the month, I won’t disobey Allah, this person will enter Jannah without questioning or debate.

SO MAKE TAWBAH AND MAKE DUA UNTIL YOU BREAK YOUR FAST AND BEG ALLAH TO ACCEPT YOUR DEEDS

It was said to Bishrin:

Indeed the people are worshipping and diligently (performing good deeds in Ramadan). He replied: How terrible are the people that only acknowledge the rights of Allah in Ramadan. Verily the pious individual is one who worships and is diligent throughout the year.

WHAT ARE SOME SIGNS MY RAMADAN IS ACCEPTED?

CONSISTENCY IN DOING GOOD AFTER RAMADAN AND
FASTING 6 DAYS OF SHAWWAL AFTER RAMADAN ENDS

Conditioning oneself to fast these days of Shawwal is a sign of acceptance of Ramadan.

If Allah accepts an action from His servant He gives that individual the tawfeeq (success) to perform another righteous action thereafter.

Some (of the Salaf) used to say:

The reward for a good deed is the good deed that follows it. Therefore, whoever performs a good deed, and follows it up with another, this is considered a sign of acceptance of the first deed performed. Likewise, if one were to perform a good deed, and thereafter perform an evil deed, this is considered a sign that the first action was rejected and not accepted from that person.

Abu Ayyub reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said,

قَالَ مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ ثُمَّ أَتْبَعَهُ سِتًّا مِنْ شَوَّالٍ كَانَ كَصِيَامِ الدَّهْرِ

“Whoever fasts the month of Ramadan and then follows it with six days of fasting in the month of Shawwal, it will be as if he fasted for the entire year.”

Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 1164
Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Muslim

The (righteous) actions of a believer do not end until death befalls him.

Hasan al Basri said:

Indeed Allah did not indicate an end to the actions of a believer except at the time of death. Then Hasan recited the verse of Allah:

{And worship your Lord until death approaches} surah hajr:99

Ramadan Rush - Description of the Prophets prayer and what is Khushoo?

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Successful indeed are the believers, those who offer their salaah (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness.” [al-Mu’minoon 23:1-2]

– i.e., fearing Allaah and in a calm manner.

Khushoo’ means calmness, serenity, tranquillity, dignity and humility.

What makes a person have this khushoo’ is fear of Allaah and the sense that He is always watching. (Tafseer Ibn Katheer, Daar al-Sha’b edn., 6/414).

Khushoo’ means that the heart stands before the Lord in humility and submission. (al- Madaarij, 1/520).

Practical advice

Empty out your heart and don’t make the world your concern

🔥 The more you worry about the Dunya, the less you will have concern for the Hereafter. No wonder our prayers lack in Khushoo’, as even in our prayers we are occupied with worldly affairs.

🎓 Maalik Ibn Deenaar said:

❝In proportion to the worry you have for the Dunya (worldly life), that (equal proportion) of concern for the Aakhirah (Hereafter) is removed from your heart; and in proportion to the worry you have for the Hereafter, that (equal proportion) of concern for the Dunya is removed from your heart.❞
