When you disobey Allah swt in any way (not praying, listening to Music, not lowering ur gaze) you will find yourself committing sins again and again, not releasing that it is in the disobedience of Allah swt that weakens your iman to fight against the temptations and the whisper of shaytan…
Shame series with Nouman Ali Khan
Da’wah is for Family too
Two years back, the was no way out for this matter. But today was a prove for me, that we will definitely see how things would gradually turn out to be better. We might feel hurt before, frighten to be broken or to left, but somehow through the pain we learnt that this desperation blissful love doesn’t necessary gives the happiness ‘inside’. And that was the only purpose of why Allah swt wud at times delay in response to our Dua’a.
For me, He didn’t delay it. He wants to give it. At the time, just right. When our hearts would finally see, it is only through Him that we would be happy. Not through the ‘things’
So every time we break again. We know that this pain doesn’t meant to hurt, it was meant to heal :)
So I walked up straight. A bit shaken. But for the first time, it didn’t fear me ‘inside’.

Identify The Person’s Standing first
“Verily the one who guides someone to do good is the like who does it in reward” [Sahih Al Bukhari]
I have always wondered,how does one engage inda’wah? Does it only mean that I have to participate in a particular program? What happens after the program has ended, can I still engage in da’wah outside the program? when I’m at university or at home? The question that I always asked myself is ‘How?’ There were times that I have this ‘lazy’ attitude with our own family, and probably because the misunderstanding I had of what da’wah really means. What I learnt as a child from the lives Prophet Muhammad saw and his companion was more about how they invite other people to Islam, the hardship, the battle without also emphasis that their affairs at home are also da’wah.
The first part of the class had thought me a valuable lesson and that is,“if we help someone to improve, that is da’wah”. Little things like teaching my little sister tajwid, encourage my brother to attend the halaqah with me, do gardening with my aunty; this is da’wah too. Encouraging the closest people around me to do good deeds and bringing the change everyday in our own homes…
[Don’t forget your family – your presence does a bring a change in them somehow Insha’Allah]
After finishing the course - Fiqh of Da’wah, one of my friends was eager to do da’wah at a particular university since it will provide us the platform to interact with wide range of non muslim. Her idea was to collaborate with a organization at the university and open a booth during peak hours to invite people to Islam.
However the president of the organization was a bit reluctant because his committee is not open to this kind of activities. She was a bit upset at first, but I suggested that probably they didn’t reject the idea rather the committee is not ready to invite people to Islam. Being in a university where the muslim are the minority, there were barely any Islamic programs for the Muslim students itself. It would be preferably to suggest Islamic Programs for the committee first before engaging in an open da’wah program to invite others to Islam. Insha’Allah.
Lesson learnt : Don’t jump to conclusion, try to identify the person’s standing first and your advice/suggestions/ ideas should start from there

10 Things I wanna do (Insha’allah)
The sound of the engine of my car signaling that I have to leave, I wish I could just disappear. I hate goodbyes. As I stuffed all my things in the car, I felt these heavy feelings, I was afraid of this separation, it was’t the first time.
I turn off the engine of the car; just the sound of it gives chilled to this body. At least it would be more bearable for us just be in this silent for a moment. I couldn’t the grasp this moment in my life. It wasn’t make to last either.
Tears started to wet the check of my close friends. They are my sisters. A gift from the highest heaven. No words can prove what the action has laid. We have grown together throughout this years.
But this separation is not forever. I could just picture us all uniting again under His Shade. At that day we would be forever grateful. There is a relief to those with broken hearts, broken promises, and broken dreams…to know that the Jannah is certain. That all hopes would be fulfilled :]
So don’t cry…rather hope
I’m forever yours in Jannah :’)
