If the first inward thought is not warded off, it will generate a desire, then the desire will generate a wish, and the wish will generate an intention, and the intention will generate the action, and the action will result in ruin and Divine wrath. So evil must be cut off at its root, which is when it is simply a thought that crosses the mind, from which all the other things follow on.
While we sit there wondering why Allah hasn’t granted our Dua, we must thank Him for not punishing us immediately for our sins.
Project: Remember Me, I will Remember You
Our beloved Prophet (PBUH) was sent as a source of mercy and as Muslims we should follow in his footsteps. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) advised for us to “Keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah”.
For the coming month inshaAllah, we will share Azkar together that can be recited before and after our daily activities. We want to get in the habit of remembering Allah with every step that we take. Through this project we hope that we can all help and remind each other to master this habit.
"To be able to thank Allah for a blessing is a blessing within itself." - Imam Shafi’i
Color my Heart
Islam, you’ve colored my heart with all that’s good in this world. You’ve reminded me of what’s good, helped me differentiate between right and wrong, and you’ve made me stronger. You colored my heart white, made it pure, so I can pray with passion. You’ve colored it red, so I can feel the love of my religion. You’ve colored it yellow and helped me get lost in the beauty of everything I see. You’ve colored it green, and helped me become a cleaner person for the environment and myself.
You’ve infected me with bliss and I promise you, Islam, I’ll keep on coloring.
