The servant speaks words that he does not understand its repercussions but he sinks down in Hell-Fire farther than the distance between the east and the west.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A Muslim has six rights over another Muslim.

They asked: “What are they, O Messenger of Allah?”

He said:
When you meet him, greet him with peace.
When he invites you, accept his invitation.
When he seeks your advice, advise him.
When he sneezes and then praises Allah, invoke Allah’s blessings upon him.
When he falls ill, visit him.
When he dies, follow his funeral.

[Sahîh Muslim]
When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.

A great site that I find myself returning to year after year masha’Allah. A lot of information, including the benefits of fasting, emaan boosters, eating habits, etc etc. Alhamdulillah it’s just a nice site to bookmark and refer back to. 

Ramadan is just around the corner. Perhaps now is the time to start implementing changes to make your Ramadan proceed smoothly insha’Allah. (Slowly reduce caffeine intake to prevent caffeine headaches during Ramadan, increase water intake, get up a little earlier each day and eat breakfast, plan out Qur’an reading schedule/lectures, get in the habit of eating something healthy with each meal, etc etc)
We Must Do Our Part

How often do we ask of Allah without tying our “camel”? Sometimes we forget that we have to do our part as well. We want to ease our suffering, but we do nothing to change our situation. We want to do well in school but we don’t study as hard. We want to find a halal job but we know its easier to aim for the shops that sell haram. We want to pray on time but we hit snooze. We want to be more pious but we don’t want to cut out the people who influence us negatively. We want a pious spouse but just not right now.

Allah opens the doors, but we have to be willing to take the steps. We ask Allah for guidance, now we need to have faith that His guidance is the best solution.

Surat Al-Qadr

1) Indeed, We sent the Qur’an down during the Night of Decree.

2) And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree?

3) The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.

4) The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter.

5) Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.
