"How is it possible for one’s heart to be certain that one is going to meet Allah, that Allah sees and hears all that he does, and knows his secret and open affairs, and that he will be made to stand before Allah, answerable for all his deeds - how can one be certain and aware of all this, and yet persist upon things which displease Allah; persist upon abandoning Allah’s orders, neglecting His rights, and yet claim that he has good expectation of Allah?"

A word that is coming very often in surat al Hujurat is “Taqwa”. In traditional translations, Taqwa is fearing God, or piety through fearing God. In others, it is about being mindful and yet it is deeper than that.
The Prophet (sws) said “at-taqwa ha-huna/taqwa is here” pointing to his…

Advice for the young Du’at!!

Stay unknown!

For the younger students of knowledge and upcoming Du’at I have a sincere advice. Strive to remain unknown! It was a quality of our salaf (predecessors) to remain unknown and off the radar of responsibility due to what comes with fame and widespread recognition. Don’t seek spotlights or the praise of the people, because if you achieve this even though you may earnestly desire it now you will wish you could take it all back when it comes. Being known comes with huge responsibilities and burdens. You will be held more accountable for every action you make. Not only by Allah but by the people. And while Allah is oft forgiving most merciful ready to forgive at a moments notice the people are not like this. You life will come under the microscope of public scrutiny. While your successes may be praised your faults, of which every other human being has as well will be magnified and put on trial in the court of public scrutiny. Your family will suffer the loss of your time as you become public property and the road is a lonely place. Your privacy will become non existent and every move you make will be on public display. You may have tons of supporters but the haters and nay Sayers will line up to take a shot at you. If you are sincere you will always be unsatisfied with your work and the fruits of your efforts. Your children will grow up under the shadow of your spotlight and wish u were home more. Your relationships will be under constant strain as the people you love try to deal with your long trips away from home and the constant attention you get and yet they may feel they lack from you. Being a leader and role model is for the few and far in between. My humble suggestion is to pursue knowledge purely for the pleasure of Allah. Share it with whom you meet and spread the Da’wah in the simplest purest manner you can. But never seek the limelight and if you see it pointed in your direction shy away from it and keep yourself free from its harm. It’s far too late for some of us but the younger generation can still be a benefit to the deen and avoid the price of fame because believe me it costs too much.

A robber stole Umar ibn al-Khattab’s turban in the marketplace and ran. Umar ran after him shouting ‘I bear witness to Allah that I have given it to you, so say “I accept it” so that the Hellfire does not
touch you!’

"Let the Qur’an be the criterion of what is acceptable & not acceptable. For on the day of judgement we will be judged by the standards set in the Qur’an, not by the standards set by man."
