Assalaamun Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, brothers and sisters.
Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim.

This topic is about worship as in whatever shape it may be, remember most of the things which I write are from my own perspectives. I'm open to new things and if someone wishes to correct me or start an conversation I would happily apply.

As you know people have come to worship many things, many "gods" or one God. But there are many things that people worship, without them realizing it as an act of worship. Some people tend to be afraid of death, losing one's property or wealth. These things the believers consider as something that may come to them, while they really do not much care about them. Such as money should be widespread and those whom do not have much of it, they should be supported and helped by those who have the means to help them. What comes to property and death it's the same, we get it by the mercy of our Creator. If He wills us to get some certain things then we will indeed have them, by anyway possible. Death is as essential as is life, it will come neither has anyone lived without dying. So it's a basic and completely normal thing for people to die, people who start to miss people see mostly this life (their faith may be very low, thus not believing or accepting the idea of afterlife and so they believe only in this life).

So if people come to worship such things as this life, they will come to recognize that it has nothing to offer. In the end, this life gives only joy which's hardly long lasting. There are certain things which bring great joy to this life, these things are mostly so simple things that many come to deny them. People have negative way to look at this life and so they come to seek the joy which's only bringing them more pain, in the end. And everyone of us has faced this fact, we know and feel that sometimes things are very hard, to pass by. So why should people who don't believe in afterlife, be afraid of death? As if it's only death we're facing and nothing after it, what's so bad in that? And as rational people they should know that death is only part of life, basic thing which we will all face when the time comes. So why should we so highly regard something that's not even everlasting? At last we can say that if we appreciate this life so much, aren't we worshiping it? By trying to hold onto this life, whilst knowing that it will fade away isn't it very funny? When we know in our everyday life that we will die, why can't we come to embrace it and accept it as such?

Our lives have a meaning when we come to realize the truth and accept it. We as humans need the truth and need to know what it is. Truth cannot be found without searching for it and in every day there's a new teaching. We come to learn more things about ourselves each passing day, thus we come much more closer to truth if we wish to get near to it. But if we live heedlessly and try to avoid finding the truth, we come to see that life is "easier" in a way. As when we come to acknowledge the truth and what's really happening, just sitting by isn't comforting for us. When we come to see the truth, whole world and life as it is starts to seem as much more different thing. It's not just black and white anymore, it starts to have colors in it, colors which we never before realized.

I hope that this post awakened questions inside of the readers and that we would start to take life as it is. That we could come better in the ways which we have and that we would start to make a difference. Of course it's up to every person to do as they wish to do, there's no doubt about that. I just wish that people would start to come by with the idea of unity and realizing what's really essential in our lives.

Whatever mistakes I made came completely from me, the truth and accuracy came from God the most high.

Thank you for reading this,
JazakAllah Khair.

Peace be upon you.

Life written.

Assalaamun Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, brothers and sister.

What I'm going to talk in this article is about this life which we face now. As we know that Allah has planned everything ready for us, we will live as He wishes us to live. We have destiny which is written by Allah, the most Magnificent.

In the end we're not in state that we can or could choose where we're going after this life. We can choose to do or not to do things, but in the end all of this is already written. Allah has destined some of the people to abide in Hell. Some of the people He has destined to enter into Paradise. So when we come to speak of "free will", (from my perspective) we're talking about the things that we can choose. But when all of this is already written, what is there that we really do choose with our own "free will"?

So if person is questioning that why isn't he guided, maybe it's not he's or her's time to be guided. Some people don't even question themselves with these kinds of questions, they just "do what they love to do" and their minds are completely occupied with the life of this world. Really do they even care about the next life, as they take everything that they see, in this life? So what I've understood or have came to understand is that God as He tells us, gives this life to someone because in the next life they will have nothing. Some are guided, thus they live a "limited" life which is lived by the commands of the most Patient. And while these people who live according to the commands of Allah, they don't have the same portion of "freedom" as those who aren't living under the commandments of Allah.

So we should ask that isn't this just fair? Some people who love this life so much, get only that life. While those who are graceful about this opportunity (life) and love the life which is yet to come.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim,

36:1 O THOU human being!

36:2 Consider this Qur’an full of wisdom:

36:3 verily, thou art indeed one of God’s message-bearers,

36:4 pursuing a straight way

36:5 by [virtue of] what is being bestowed from on high by the Almighty, the Dispenser of Grace,

36:6 [bestowed upon thee] so that thou mayest warn people whose forefathers had not been warned, and who therefore are unaware [of the meaning of right and wrong].

36:7 Indeed, the word [of God’s condemnation] is bound to come true against most of them: for they will not believe.

36:8 Behold, around their necks We have put shack­les, reaching up to their chins, so that their heads are forced up;

36:9 and We have set a barrier before them and a barrier behind them, and We have enshrouded them in veils so that they cannot see:

36:10 thus, it is all one to them whether thou warnest them or dost not warn them: they will not believe.

36:11 Thou canst [truly] warn only him who is willing to take the reminder to heart, and who stands in awe of the Most Gracious although He is beyond the reach of human perception: unto such, then, give the glad tiding of [God’s] forgiveness and of a most excellent reward!

Many can come and speak ill of Islam, about the religion of God. But the ones with an open heart can see the truth, there are magnificent signs in the Qur'an. Alhamdulillah that we're able to understand and read them. It's all from Allah's Mercy, praise be to Him alone!

Any errors that have came about are completely from me, whilst everything that is pure and true comes strictly from Allah, the most Magnificent.

JazakAllah Khair, for reading.
Thank you for reading.

May Allah guide us all towards the straight path and guard us from the evil plots, of the accursed one. Aamen.

Peace be upon you. =)

Disturbing facts.

Assalaamun Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, brothers and sisters.

This article is about the disturbing things that I've come to notice from the people and from myself. So there are very disturbing things, ways of communicating and thinking, among every people without a doubt.
One of these things is that some Muslims, who have born into Islam regard themselves as somehow better Muslims than those who have converted to Islam. This fact could be branded as one of the brands of pride, or arrogance. As people claim something that really has no foothold in the religion of Islam. People who have educated themselves and have studied about Islam can know that the Muslims in the times of the prophet, salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, were mostly what we call converts. Because in those days before Islam, it was normal thing for most of the Arabs to worship idols and when prophet started to receive the message from Allah, people started to convert or revert back to Islam. Again uneducated and unknowing persons who have born into Islam make things from somewhere which really don't belong to Islam. It's very dire and not good for such words to go around as they are not from Islam, from where they are? I don't know completely but one of the reasons, may be that these kinds of things go around because of the ignorance about Islamic knowledge.

Then there's a thing that can be called "Islamophobia", which is mainly and mostly for people who don't know a thing about Islam. Yet the come to believe that this what is told to them, by media is fully true. It's easy to mislead people who don't know a thing about the subject that you're talking about. Mostly these people who spread Islamophobia don't themselves know anything about Islam, they have just heard from somewhere that "Islam is this and Islam is that" and they come to believe that it's the truth. But in the end these people shouldn't be taken as bad people, it's the same as children. When they don't know anything about a subject they come to assume things, but when they get the knowledge about the fact they either accept it and find it as truth or find it as truth yet deny it. Either way we're not the ones losing, we should try to inform them about the facts but if they come to deny them who're we to blame ourselves? People who are arrogant and uneducated can easily be mislead, but if we have done our part then there's their part and only if Allah wills it to be so, they will find the truth.
So the most disturbing fact (among us as Muslims) could be the ignorance of our own religion, or ignorance (for Muslims and for those who aren't Muslims) about the things that there are. As ignorance in any form is quite bad thing, it leads to many things and none of them are good. Except if we start to inform ourselves when we find ourselves to be ignorant about something. Education is needed in everywhere, not only the education that is available at schools but education that can be acquired on our own private time.
We as humans should notice one great fact and that is, that nothing has ever been accomplished if people are but ignorant. It's like a circle where people accuse each others about things that they really don't know, the ones who know, may stay quiet as they know that words without meaning are of nothing. As it's told to us we should remain quiet if we don't have anything worthy or truthful to say, it's better to stay quiet than to speak words of falsehood or just to blabber.

When I write this, I inform and remind myself and at the same time I try to remind and inform you.

JazakAllah Khair.
Thank you for reading this.

Everything that was in error, came completely from me. And everything that came as truth, is completely from Allah. InshAllah we would live this life as it's meant to be lived, so that we could achieve the best of hereafter.


Assalaamun Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh, brothers and sisters.

I would like to go through this one, very dire thing that's in our nature. It is very deceiving and is able to make us do a lot of bad, while we're not recognizing it as a real threat. So this thing is pride, mainly pride that makes us look down on others or makes us think that we would be better than normal human beings. This pride can be found in many places, among every community and among every people. It's quite a basic thing as people tend to be proud of something or of someone, especially people tend to be proud about their own children, which isn't bad. As long as it doesn't go to the level of regarding your children of being flawless or that they would be perfect i.e. higher than other people and other children.

We're all equal in humanity, we live, we eat, we do the things that we have to do so that we can remain to stay alive. And we all need those things, all of us have to eat and drink and do all the same things. Otherwise there would be complications, such as dehydration, undernourishment, from dirt or not maintaining the hygiene there comes all sorts of problems, diseases etc. So we're very much the same, so what is it that makes us think so highly of ourselves? Maybe it's the ways that our parents have taught us, to have pride about what you are etc. maybe it's the group in which we live in, (as friends are part of what you are/ what kind of a person you will become) or maybe it's the society and it's norms. Culture or such things, that has been with the community for many centuries.

And why I came to speak about pride? Because it's very dire thing for those who believe, as you may have heard about hadeeths in which our beloved prophet, salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, stated that if one has pride in him or her, even the weight of an atom that would prevent them from entering paradise. And many of us have heard and read about the state of Iblis the accursed one, (may Allah guard us from he's evil plots) he was so proud of what he was that he regarded himself as a better being than our forefather Adam, alayhis salam. Imagine he didn't prostrate himself to Adam, alayhis salam, even when it was Allah's command to do so. And why? Because he was made out of fire and Adam, alayhis salam, was made out of clay. So this was why he didn't prostrate himself before Adam, alayhis salam, just because he was made from a different element. And this was why Allah banished him and told to him that he would reside in hell after the Judgement day. But until that certain hour, he (Satan/ Iblis) could deceive and mislead all of those who are not from among the chosen servants of Allah.

So in the end what should we be proud of? Of being a Muslim? Or of being a person who has knowledge or strength beyond others?

I would say as my own opinion that we should be happy that we're Muslims, as we didn't make ourselves as Muslims we were chosen to walk upon this path so what is there to be proud of? Because why should we be proud of something that doesn't come from us? Instead of pride, we could be thankful to Allah that He has chosen us to walk upon this path and of those things that He has given to us. Would it then be the strength of physics or knowledge, it all comes from Him.

We are Muslims and we worship Allah the Creator of all that there is, we're humble before Him and we're humble before our parents. We cannot look down on others, because we too will be judged. It is Allah Who sees and hears everything, so how can we say that: "we're better than this and this person"? While we don't know that what these people do on their private time, or what is their fate and what they can become? It's Allah Who perfectly knows everything that there is, praise be to Him.

As a reminder I want to tell that this is completely my own opinion about pride, there's pride that isn't bad but that pride doesn't make us think highly of ourselves nor look down on others. Whatever faults I have done writing this, comes completely from me. And whatever is written in truth comes from Allah the most Magnificent, the most Merciful.

JazakAllah Khair, thank you for reading this.

May Allah guide us towards the truth and forgive us for our shortcomings. Aamen.

One God, second part.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim.
Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh, brothers and sisters.

So I would like to continue on the topic that God is one. So what I would like to say in this writing, is the Oneness of God that God is one, without partners, children or something like that. So as muslims we believe that God is one, God has not begotten nor is He begotten. He is one and only, He has no beginning nor ending, He is eternal, ever living. And there is nothing like Him, He is unique the creation is nothing like Him, nor is He like the creation. The best example and explaining to this is one of the Sura, or Chapter of the Quran. And it is Sura Al Ikhlas, Chapter of The Purity:

112:1 SAY: "He is the One God:
112:2 "God the Eternal, the Uncaused Cause of All Being.
112:3 "He begets not, and neither is He begotten;
112:4 "and there is nothing that could be compared with Him.

And this is one thing which bestly describes God, in short way. And this is how we can say strictly that what kind of being God is, and if someone comes and says that there is God ''incarnated'' then we start and can use this as an falsification test. If this is ''God incarnated'' then we can say that he or this person who claims to be what he or she claims to be. Then we can say that you are begotten, and if she or he has children, he has begotten and by this we can tell that you are not God. And from the first thing is this verse from this chapter ''and there is nothing that could be compared with Him.'' So he should be so unique that it is impossible to compare something to him, and of course he is human and so we can always compare him to other human beings. And this is one thing, that why we say that Jesus Alayhi Salaam was not God, nor His begotten son. Because when God would beget, then He wouldn't be God, anymore as this chapter clearly states the thing, so correctly that you cannot misunderstand it.

And if we go to the thing that God would have son, then what would be thought about that begotten son of God? That he would be one day the same as his father is, a God. And once you believe in monotheism you cannot say that God would have a son, as then you would start to think that if God beget a son, then there are two gods. Wouldnt it be only logical to think like this? Because when you as a human being get a son, one day he would possibly get a son and be a father. Not as the same as you are, but in the main thing he is almost the same. If we do not look at the deeds and the personality, because of course we all have our own personality and we have our own share of good and bad deeds. And with all due respect towards every Christian, brother and sister. But we can mostly see that how illogical and irrational it is to think, that if God is one, He beget and this son should be God. But this God and the son, they are the same plus the holy spirit. So God is one, but while He is one He has three different persons. So there is no wonder, truth be told that why so many start to be atheists while they see the irrationality. Because we as humans, of course we are one in our induviduality but if we have everyone three personalities inside of us. And we all know what that would mean, and I just wanted to tell this and I wish not to hurt anyone's feelings nor their religion.

I just wish to encourage, that if it is possible like that you have computer, you can read and listen. Then why not look for proofs for things, but if you believe in what you believe then you wish to believe so. But if there is doubt in your mind, that this sounds illogical and weird, then please do yourself a favor and search for truth. Because as long, as you doubt your belief and you just live in that belief like you would be forced to do so. Then you are not doing any good to yourself. And if you are doubting your belief in Islam, then of course you too should search for information. Because once you are in the way of Islam, on the path of God. Then you should know that what do you believe in, and why. What is what, and so on. Because if you just blindly believe or stay on belief without knowledge then there is greater possibility, that you go into sin. Because you do not know that what are the, punishments and consequences of such evil deeds. So you are not fearing God as you should, and if you would have the knowledge and know it then you would certainly try to avoid it, as best as you can. Because once you know then you start to know that what is wrong, and sometimes even if you know about these things you get the feeling that you are doing something that is wrong.

But inshAllaah/ God willing you would be able to find the truth, and that God would guide you towards the truth and knowledge. And it is God who guides, it is not anyone else. There are ppl who might help you on your path, but it is God who lead you to this or to these persons. And these persons too, got their knowledge and information from God. Everything comes from God, and everything will return to God. Willingly or unwillingly. May the peace and blessings of God be upon you all, Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

One God.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim.
Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

So brothers and sisters today I would like to speak about the thing that God is one, without partners or helpers. So God is only one and we, as muslims believe that God is one, He sent messengers to ppl in different times to different ppl. And all these prophets may God's peace be upon of them all. All of them spread message about one God, Who has prepared unlimited reward after death for those who believe in Him, and follow His rules and the rules of His prophets who brought the commandments of God, to humanity. And for those who do not believe in Him or choose not to follow His commandments, for those He has prepared a punishment and great torment. But this is applying only to those who have heard about the message and chosen not to follow it, so those who deny after hearing from it have the choise to follow or choose, not to follow. And those who have not heard or known about it, those God will judge differently and He knows best. And even if you are a muslim, it doesn't guarantee that you would be in paradise it is quite the opposite. Because when you know about the message, you have to work accordingly to it and if you choose not to follow it, i.e. you choose to deny the rules and limits that God has set before us. And so you are making the decision not to follow, and then you are doing prohibited things knowingly.

So there are things that God has prohibited
from us, and things that are allowed to us. To put it bluntly we could say that, the things that are prohibited are things of no good. They cause hardship, sickness, evil doing, hurting someone's fellings or something that could be considered as evil or negative. And the things that are allowed are the opposite, so they are of good to us, they may heal us, they help us deal with others justly and most importantly they help us. As when we do prohibited things we cause bad to happen to us, in this life like in the next life. And the things that God has prohibited are because of something, so they are of no good to us. For an example, we as muslims are prohibited from drinking alcohol. And if we look at the modern day things we can quite well see that why it is prohibited, some ppl get quite aggressive, they cause sometimes vandalism, crime and all these things which are of no good to us, nor to those who are found as victims to it. So it is better and God even rewards us for not doing things that are prohibited, and He makes our daily lives much easier in this world too, because then we are not doing things which consume time from us. Because time is one of those things that cannot be wasted for nothing, as we all know every second is unique, we cannot take it back nor live it again. And every heartbeat is ''unhealthy'' or away from us, as that is one less heartbeat for the heart to beat. :) So we should be occupied in doing good, and forbidding and trying to prevent evil/ bad things from happening, i.e. using every second for something that is useful, which is benefitting for us and to those that we are trying to help.

So what we really should do is, to make every day worth living for. Trying to strive for the pleasure of God, so that we would be able to have our resting place in Jannah (Paradise). And that we maybe would be protected from the Hellfire, from it's torment and punishment as it is something so bad that no one would, wish it on anyone. But it is God who decides, He is going to judge us without wronging any soul as He says in the Holy Quran:

4:40 Verily, God does not wrong [anyone] by as much as an atom's weight; and if there be a good deed, He will multiply it, and will bestow out of His grace a mighty reward.

InshAllaah this writing did make you think about your deeds, and what should be done and what should not be done. And inshAllaah that we would be striving in the way of Allaah subhanahu wa ta'ala, so that we would help and make something that would benefit us. May Allaah forgive me if I may have stated something out of my knowledge. And may the peace and blessings of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala be upon you. :)

JazakAllaah Khair.
