Lesson from sūrat al-Kahf:
Leave what you must, abandon who you must, sacrifice whatever you must — just to preserve your faith and avoid fitna in your dīn.
Personal reflection dated Jan ‘14 (via quranicreflections)
At university we had ‘Islamic Awareness Week’ - a week purely dedicated to Dawah and clearing up misconceptions about Islam. During the week we had a daily ‘Try on a Hijab Stall’ which was so overwhelmingly successful. We had women try on the hijab and immediately burst into tears because they felt ‘a sense of peace’ and they felt ‘protected’. We also had women try on the Niqaab, they were all extremely shocked at how comfortable it was. People who stopped for a chat were actually shocked at how friendly and how polite we Muslims all were. This all just shows that the way people should learn about Islam is by speaking to Muslims personally and not through the media. All blessings are from Allah!
Allah has blessed me much more than what I deserve. It’s just the small things that always make you realise how truly blessed you are. Alhamdulillah always and forever.
I haven’t been active on tumblr for a while, it was due to uni work and then we had Islamic Awareness Week - a whole week dedicated to Dawah on campus. Can’t wait to start posting more and sharing my experiences Insha’Allah :)
And We have sent down this Qur’an as a clarification for all things.
Be unattached to the worldly life, constantly seek the Hereafter, and be sincere to Allah the Almighty in all your dealings, and you will be among those who succeed.
