I was just browsing through this website, and subhan Allah, I don’t remember the last time I said “wow” out-loud, so many times, in succession. There is some amazing stuff on this website, composed/translated by the brother, so check it out when you get a chance. I’m going to be re-posting some stuff that I want to return to often, here, with a link going back to his page. Inshaa Allah

Wasted Time by Ammar AlShukry

Wasted Time


Wasted Time
By Ammar AlShukry


Thinking about the time we waste

Holding onto the past a fading face

Afraid to love forward so while you’re waiting wait

For more of your life to pass while you stay in place

There are those that have problems they’re afraid to face

Use drugs and alcohol lay their brain to waste

I need my mind sharp so when I state my case

My venom is bitter so my spray they taste

It’s time to raise the gates

Cuz the people are tired and its way too late

For us to be appeased with a lil taste of cake

Born Muslim so I’ve tasted hate

War and genocide, sisters gave tasted rape

It’s bitterness countered only by the sweet taste of faith

Dreaming dreams of success long days away

So we need a generation that we pray awakes

And when you do we need you to stay awake

Cuz we seen too many an inferno have its blazes fade

In my mind I’m looking forward to amazing days

Where the hypocrites leave and the faithful stay

To take their place in a world where the stakes are raised

History is knocking, will you grace a page?

Paradise is waiting, will you case your place ?

Or will you be one of those who doesn’t know which way to take

Forever pausing and hesitating at the fates he waits

Until time passes him by, finally he fades untraced

Gaining neither of both worlds, a wasted fate..

Shaykh Uthaymeen and the Boy

Bismillah walhamdulillah

A powerful incident in which Shaykh Uthaymeen advises a young boy in regards to praising…

Working in any Muslim organization, or giving halaqaat, you are bound to be praised. The people mean well, but they don’t realize what a dangerous thing they are doing sometimes. Always remind yourself that the people who are praising you, do not have knowledge of the Unseen, so they do not know all of your flaws. They have a biased view of you. Allah swt, the Knower of the Unseen, knows about every stain on your heart, and every error made by your tongue, and every glance of your eyes. If you do not remind yourself this, you are walking down the treacherous path to self-amazement.

If you are praised, remember the dua for it:

Allahumma laa tu’aakhithnee bimaa yaqooloona, waghfir lee maa laa ya’lamoona, [waj’alnee khayram-mimmaa yadhunnoon].

O Allah, do not call me to account for what they say and forgive me for what they have no knowledge of [and make me better than they imagine].
