Turn Back and Thank Allah



A man was in his jeep stuck in a traffic, he saw a man flying over him in plane. He started praying to ALLAH that ALLAH should make him fly like this to avoid all the traffic jam and when he turned back, he saw a man in his small car praying to ALLAH to give him a jeep like that of the man to avoid all the heat he was experiencing. Dis man also turned back and saw another man on motorbike praying to ALLAH to give him a small car to avoid the direct sunlight over his head. Dis man also turned back and saw another man walking on a bridge praying to ALLAH to give him a  motorbike to help avoid de long distance of crossing de bridge. Dis man turned back and saw a handicapped praying to ALLAH to have given him legs to cross de bridge without a wheelchair. De handicapped turned and saw an ambulance with a sick person praying to ALLAH to give him life even if he has no legs. Moral lesson. No matter what  your conditions maybe, always remember to be grateful to ALLAH at all times, because what others go through is worst than what you are going through.

"The life of this world is nothing more than play and pastime. The abode of the hereafter is certainly far better for the pious. Do you not understand? " [Quran 6:32]

Poem: A Question for Christians



Were the heavens vacated, when He laid under the ground somewhere?

Were all the worlds left without a God, to manage while His hands were nailed?

Why did not the angels help Him, when they heard him while he wailed?

How could the rods stand to bear the True Lord when He was fastened,

How could the irons reached Him and [had] His body pinned?

How could His enemies hands reach Him and slap His rear,

And was Christ revived by himself, or was the Reviver another god?

What a sight it was, a grave that enclosed a god,
Stranger still is the belly that confined Him!

He stayed there for nine months in utter darkness, fed by blood!

Then he got out of the womb as a small baby,
Weak and gasping to be breast-fed!

He ate and drank, and did what that naturally resulted,
Is this [what you call] a god?

High Exalted be Allah above the lies of Christians,
All of them will be held accountable for their libels!

O Cross-worshippers! For what reason is this exalted
and blame [is cast upon those] who reject it?

Is it not logical to break and burn it, along with the one who innovated it?

Since the Lord was crucified on it, and his hands were fastened to it?

That is really a cursed cross to carry,
So discard it, do not kiss it!

The Lord was abused on it, and you adore it?
So [it is clear that] you are one of His enemies!

If you extol it because it carried the Lord of the Worlds,

Why don’t you prostrate yourself and worship graves,

Since the grave contained your god in it?

So Christ-worshipper, open your eyes,
This is the Beginning and this is the End.

Created without a creator?

In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Bountiful.

Allah, the Mighty and Majestic, in establishing His Lordship and Oneness posses the question, the meaning of which is:

"Were they created without a Lord or have they created themselves? Or have they created the heavens and earth? Rather, they have no faith!" [Quran: 52:35-36]

Allah (God) is, more glorious, exalted and greater than to be in need of signs and examples to prove His existence. Your presence within itself is a proof of the existence of the Creator, for He brought you into existence out of nothing. Allah Said:

"And on the earth are signs for those who have Faith with certainty. And also in your own selves. Will you not then see?" [Quran: 51:21]


There are different narrations of how Abu Haneefah tackled the issue, in one such narration he was asked to participate in a debate with some atheists. On the appointed date and time of the debate, the atheists arrived along with a great number of people attending the debate. Abu Haneefah was nowhere to be seen, they waited and waited and eventually one of the atheists announced, to the cheers of the atheists, that atheism was victorious as Abu Haneefah did not show out of fear of being defeated. Just then Abu Haneefah shows up and upon being asked why he was late he responded.

I missed the ferry crossing the river, so while I was waiting for the next one, branches of trees started coming together all of a sudden, along with ropes, nails and other materials. I watched as they came together to form a fully functional ship. I boarded it and it took me, all on its own, to the other side. It then went on a trip across the oceans to trade some of its goods all on its own.

Upon hearing this, the atheists said:

This man is mad, no one can say such a thing except a mad man, a ship made itself!

Abu Haneefah responded:

The heavens and earth and the countless creatures within them that are in need of direction, all this without a maker!

Their argument was destroyed, they returned to the truth and embraced Islam.

The Media Game - Fake video 'hero boy'


Creating the scenes
A video purporting to show a Syrian boy under gunfire pretending to be dead in order to rescue a young girl has been viewed over 5 million times. 
Some may find the content of the video disturbing. While many have proclaimed the boy as an inspirational hero, its authenticity has been widely questioned. 
#BBCtrending spoke to Amira Galal of BBC Monitoring's Middle East team about the difficulties of verifying the truth behind it. 
Update: Since writing this blog, BBC Trending has confirmed that the video was faked, after speaking to a group of Norwegian filmmakers who said they shot the video in Malta earlier this year. 
Source : BBC Trending
This is a good example how the public can be fooled over media's propagandas and brainwash people's attitudes towards a subject. Examples such as September 11, ISIL beheading scenes, Planes Hijacking, etc...

This event is a good wake-up call for all Muslims and Non-Muslims, It is obvious when false news spread; the hidden truth travels with it and once day it's bound to overtake the falsehood.

"And say: 'Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish.' " [Quran 17:81]

Secrets your wife won't tell you

Most men have a hard time understanding women. Even a woman they've been married to for years. One minute she’s perfectly fine, the next, she’s crying like a baby. She complains about something but when we offer advice on how to fix it, she still isn't satisfied. After several years of marriage (and counseling) I've learned to not worry so much about what my wife says. Instead, I should worry about what she doesn’t say.


1. Above all, She Wants Your love

When a wife shows her husband less respect, he in turn shows her less love.

And when a husband shows his wife less love, she in turn shows him less respect.

And the vicious cycle repeats itself.

Stop this prophecy before it becomes self-fulfilling. Show love to your wife.

That’s what she wants. Love her despite her flaws and quirks.

And Inshallah, she'll respect you despite your flaws and quirks.

2. She’s Bored

It’s the same thing every day.

Week in and week out.

Not only is she bored but she’s also tired.

She has to care for the kids and run the household and then pamper you.

Just thinking about doing that every day makes me want to crawl under my covers and hide. I can imagine how the average Muslim housewife must feel.

And let’s not forget about working woman. Many Muslim women have to work a full time job as well as hold a house down.

So brothers, I implore you, make your wife feel special. Give her a break.

Take her out sometimes. Surprise her with a surprise meal. Bring her favorite desert home.

Just do something every now and then to break the monotony.

3. She Wants to be Complimented

Appreciation. Everybody wants it. No one wants to feel as if the hard work they do goes unnoticed or even worse, it taken for granted.

Your wife does not have to clean your dirty clothes. And she does not have to cook your meals. But she does. And she does that on top of all the other things in her life:
  • Caring for the kids.
  • Working or going to school.
  • Striving to be a better Muslimah.
Show your Muslim wife that you appreciate and are thankful for the things she does to maintain you and your family. A simple “thank you” is a good start.

4. She’s Insanely Jealous

There’s a reason most women don't care for polygamy. Be very careful how you talk about other women around your wife. Don't ever compare your wife to another woman.
  • Don't compare her to some female movie star.
  • Don't compare her to your mother.
  • Never, ever compare her to your ex-wife (or other wife!)
She’s wants to know and believe that she is the center of your universe. So make her feel that way.

Even the Prophet’s (pbuh) wives got jealous. Aisha (RA) even got jealous of Khadijah (RA) who was dead.

Expect, and respect, the same type of jealousy from your wife.

5. She Wants You to Help Her become A Better Muslimah

I can't stress enough the importance of men taking the role of leader within their families.

And that’s the problem with a lot of Muslim men these days.

Not only are they not being good leaders, they're being led by their wives (or mothers, or other women in their lives).

Your wife desires and wants you to be her leader. And what better way to lead her than to be show her how to be a better Muslimah?

But you can't show her how to become better if you're not that great either. Therefore, you have to upgrade your Iman. You have to improve yourself and then pass it on to her in a gentle, respectful way.

6. She Doesn't Like to Nag, But Sometimes You Make It Hard

It’s a common myth that women like to nag their husbands. That’s not entirely true.

Yes, there are some people (men and women) whom you can never please. No matter what you do, they'll always find fault in something. Let’s be reminded of the following hadith:

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet said: “I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful.” It was asked, “Do they disbelieve in Allah?” (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, “They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, ‘I have never received any good from you.” – Sahih Bukhari.

So, yes sisters should be careful about denigrating the things your husband does for you.

But very often, you brother, make it hard for her to hold your tongue.

Perhaps you're always finding fault with her and she looks for things in your character to get even.

Perhaps you’re not working (or not working hard enough) and she has to work to take up some slack.

Perhaps you're just not that great of a guy.

Once again, upgrade yourself and give her less reasons to complain and nag.

7. More Than Anything, She Wants a Stable, Happy Relationship With You

Women don't get married just because they think it’s gonna be fun.

They get married because they want a happy family life and they believe youre gonna give it to them.

Outside of her religious duties, that’s the most important thing in a Muslim woman’s life. Raising a happy, stable, Muslim family.

The funny thing is, it’s very easy for you to give that to her.
  1. Stop acting like a jerk. Be a good husband to her. Be kind. Show her you love her.
  2. Don’t threaten her with divorce or taking a second wife. Yes, you have the right to do both. But using them as threats is inappropriate and detrimental to your marriage.
  3. Trust in Allah, watch out for the tricks of Shaytan, and be patient with her. There’s nothing Shaytan would love more than to destroy your marriage.
See? That isn't all that hard, now is it?
