Saying that Jesus (Peace be upon him) died for our sins is like saying that a doctor breaks his own head to cure the headache of his patients.
Alaykum Selam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,
My dear Muslim brothers and sisters, if you are from the U.K., or have lived there, or know people who live there, please spend a few minutes of your time to help out the sister of a close brother of mine.
She needs Muslims from the U.K. or who have lived there to fill in this very short survey for her dissertation, so let’s all help her Insha’Allah!
The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said,
"A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfil his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection.” Sahih Bukhari - Volume 3, Book 43, Number 622.
So let’s all help her out, share it, re-blog it, re-send it whatever you need to do! Thank you for the help and may Allah reward you abundantly.
Who has some spare time to look at a short text I wrote for my thesis? It is only 2000 words and needs a bit of grammatical improvement.
Not much work really. Drop me a message if your English grammar game is real strong and you want to help!
Don’t be worried when it comes to worldly matters. Just do your best, be a righteous Muslim, and trust in Allah.
Imagine stressing, crying, and becoming depressed over insignificant things such as a shoe-lace, a plastic bag, or a napkin. Quite hard to imagine right? …
Then why is it that we stress, cry, and become depressed over this worldly life? If looked at it from the right perspective, crying over this worldly life is not much different than crying over a shoe-lace or a plastic bag.
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: ”A place in Paradise as small as the bow or lash of one of you is better than all the world and whatever is in it” [Bukhari]
And he (peace be upon him) said: "By Allah, the life of this world, compared to that in the Hereafter, is but like someone who puts his finger in the sea, so let him see what it brings out." [Muslim and Tirmidhi]
And also, ”What have I to do with this world ! I am no more in this world than a traveller who sought the shade of a tree then left it and continued [his journey].” [Tirmidhi and Ibn Maajah]
Therefore, whatever it is that you might face, always remember that this life is just temporary, and know its true worth compared to that which is waiting for the truthful ones.
