Jumaa Mubarak!

Salaams ladies
(and maybe to a few brothers too?)

It's almost 8am, I've just stepped out of the house and my first thoughts are subhan'Allah! The sun's shining and the birds are singing- Allah has blessed us with beautiful weather on this blessed day of Jumaa...

I spoke in my last post about my concern for my iman. Allhumdulillah yesterday I prayed the most beautiful Asr salah to me! All those things I spoke about in my last post returned, I was conscious of Allah, my heart was present during salah, worldy thoughts didn't come to me... Subhanallah!

I sat and as I made dua and began to thank Allah for all those things I could see around me, that he's blessed me with, I thanked him for being a muslimah who by his will has been guided. I thanked him for having a prayed a beautiful salah when tears began to drop like white pearls from my eyes.

Im not sure if they were tears of sadness for what I'd lost or tears of joy for having found what I'd lost... But wow! After weeks of feeling lost and alone, I once again had the feeling of contentment and much peace at heart.

Insh'allah, todays gonna be a good day- I can feel it! It's the blessed day of Jumaa, and even though I'm on my way to work (Whilst I wanna be in bed!) and getting my foot crushed in the car door, (It hurts!) Allhumdulillah - I feel good man! I feel happy! I'm content with my lot.. I don't need anymore as I have more than enough..

I love Allah! I love my religion! And I love you all for the sake of Allah...

Jumaa kareem my beautiful readers- have a fabulous day!

Salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

  1. salam, hope that you are ok, really happy that you are back on track, i made a concious effort to actually listen to the quran yesterday instead of songs and it felt really good, i love abdur rahman al sudais, he has such a calming voice. im feeling really queasy at the moment got to go back today to the monsters. i will email you soon inshallah take care hun

  2. yaya so glad u got ur groove back... i was like that two but over last couple days been more in it like sonic!

    mustve been somthing in the water... praying quran is just as important to our daily lives as salah !

  3. Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh Sister Jannah,

    Alhamdullilah I am so happy that you are feeling good, Alhamdullilah. Jumuah Mubarak to you too. I wanted to share this hadith with you.

    The Prophet (Sallalahu alaihi wa salam) said: "Whoever is mainly concerned about the Hereafter, Allaah will make him feel independent of others and will make him focused and content, and his worldly affairs will fall into place...but whoever is mainly concerned with this world, Allaah will make him feel in constant need of others and will make him distracted and unfocused, and he will get nothing of this world except what is decreed for him." (Tirmidhi)

  4. Asalaamu Alaikum Queenie
    Allhumdulillah im well.. (I tried to post this reply like a million times whilst at work but my iphone was flipping out again!)

    I havnt heard of the Qari you mention Sis. Inshallah ill google the name now and have a listen.

    Mishary Rashid Alafasy is mashallah, Amazing to me. His ecitiation is beautiful - some surahs pierce my heart man! Subhan'Allah.

    But mashallah on making an effort with the Quran. Keep listening more to the Quran and less to the music Sweetie as I find its the music that can be quite detrimental to a person deen.

    I always feel calm and peaceful when listening/reciting the Quran - and so humbled too.. Dont you just love that feeling?

    My Sis Chica made a very good point - its my neglect of my quran which was the result of my downfall over the past weeks I think.

    Keep it up sis
    Love you ladies

    Allhumdulillah -

  5. Salaam alaikum J.
    Jazakallahu Khair for sharing

    Thast exactly how I feel. Allhumdulillah - I have every faith in Allah and that he is the best disposer of my affairs. I believe He will do whats best and though it may not please me or I may not understand why its happened that way - Allah hu Alim and know its for the best insh'Allah and evrything will be taken care of for me.

    Sunhan'allah - beautiful hadith J.
    May Allah reward you in abundance for your efforts Sis.

    Much love.
