Salam

U knw wt is life? How wld u define it? Most ppl nowhere days think of thier life evolves around love. U knw ppl get themselfs into a trap whihc they cnt get themselves out of espcially tennagers and yougsters today

I gt myself into this trap. U knw wen u actually fall in love with sum1, u 4get abt the rite and wrong. U get bilinded and dnt see wot ur actaully doing wrong, but if u do realise u still dnt act on it. I fell in love yeh wen i was 16. It was like sumthin so good great or wotever has happened to me. You knw as they say sum1 always ends up gettin hurt, well its so true they do.

I ended up gettin hurt. But wot did i actually achieve from all of it. At the end of the day nutin. I didnt get nething out of it. Yes i mite still like dat person today but there was no outsome from it.

Islam teaches us the rites and wrong in life, but how many ppl follow these teachings knowin wot they r. I myself didnt but i only realised my stupid actions wen it was all over or maybe i still havnt.

U knw now that i am out a relationship i feel i dnt knw hw to explain but like im fresh or sumthing an im myself, free from things. Im more focused on wot im doing (religion wise) but u knw the hardest thing comin out of a relationship is 4gettin abt it and puttin it to aside.

as salam alykom to both of u

Insh a Allah I will try my best with Allah's close guidance to help. I will not use the theoritical usual advices of be aware of Allah, u r a muslim, read about Allah's punishment. Simply because it is obvious that both of are quite aware of all that and more. More in the sense that u really r struggling to get over the problem. Yes it is a problem. Suhail not only in western societies no, every where. The media is so strong on that. and we are so weak.

Ok. First what is the cause of the problem, obviously shaytan. he decorates it and inspires u that it is difficut to stop.

Insh a Allah we need to set a plan, as any other Muslim u must be facing an attack from Shaytan who has no other desire but to trouble the son of Adam.

Well now we need to know how to combat Insh aAllah:

1. Maintain a status of Wodu all the time, every time you break wodu take wodu again.

2. Recite Ayatulkorsi (Quran 2:255) a lot, when u feel that u r too anxious to call, go for a date or when u are hit by an unpleasent wave. Also make sure to play Surat Baqarah (Quran 2) in the house every other day. In a hadeeth, the Messenger sallah Allahu a`alyhe wa sallam said that it deters the shaytan for three days.

3. Every time u want to go for a date, try to stop and fail to stop, give out a small amount for Sadaqa, any amount

4. Every time also u go for a date, perform 2 raka`a extra Tawbah. By this the Shaytan will find that by whispering to u, u r Insh a Allah increasing good deeds. He will stop.

5. Recite this dua a lot (like 100 times):

La ilaha ila Allah wahdahu la shareeka lahu lahul molk walahul hamd yohyie wayomeet wahuwa a`ala kol shai-en qadeer.

لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك وله الحمد يحيى ويميت وهو على كل شئ قدير

6. Last but not least, make much dua that Allah helps u to stop what is not pleasing to Him. Seek His help, talk to Allah and tell Him how much u suffer for not being as u should, and how much u need to get rid of this sin. Allah shall certainly help u.

This dua is a protection against Shaytan.

Say aoudh billah mina shaytan arrajeem a lot.

Also do tasbeeh a lot, like saying sobhan Allah, walhamdulelah, wa la ilaha ila Allah waAllah u akbar wa la howla wala qowata ila billa. A lot. Make this a lot. In a hadeeth also the messenger said what means hearts rust and the scrubbing is la ilaha ila Allah, and on another narration and the scrubbing is Quran.

Insh aAllah both of you will be able to get over this situation, and will more than fine.

may Allah protect us all against shaytan and his soldiers

Jazakallah for ur help

I knw dat sayin sumthin is easily done but puttin it into practice is much harder to do. I think gettin focused and doin all the things u had said isnt going to be easy. Its gna take time.

Still knwin wt is wrong doesnt stop u from things it jst kinda happens. Yeh i knw wt ur sayin suhail hw u wanna dump her but u cnt. Even though u knw its gna be 4 d best but to u being with her is for the best.

I did not say it is easy, nothing is easy unless with Allah's help, that is why I mentioned in the last point to make salat and ask for Allah's support and help.

Suhail, just think of her as your own blood sister, I dont think u would like this for your own sister. I know what u must be saying now. But just think of her as your sister, daughter or even a cousin. U will never accept it for her.

One more nice point. keep youslef busy. How? a quran chapter is usually scripted in 20 pages. Divide them by 5= 4 pagers. Read 4 pages after each prayer. By this u will finish a Juz-u/day.

Other things like joining an Islamic community activity would help much. getting involved with people's difficulties, u will see that the difficulty u r going through is actually minimal. U will be able to stop Insh aAllah. Think how if u take this serious step u will be helping a Muslim sister to improve herself. Doing it for Allah will help much. Just start. Dont stand there saying I can not u can.....Insh a Allah u can

As salam alaikum

I am going through a divorce because of my desires conflicting with what Allah Orders. I now want Allah to be the number one in my life and cannot do that with the woman to whom I am married. I have tried.

In a relationship, the other person is either going to inhibit your relationship with Allah or assist it. It is like being on a ladder. If the other is helping you get closer to Allah, it is like a balloon is attached to your belt helping to ease the climb up. If the person is hindering your relationship with Allah, it is like trying to climb the ladder with a boulder tied to your waist. Sometimes the boulder is so great that it is impossible to move or it might even drag you down away from God.

For myself, I had to ask how I could face Allah on the Day of Judgement and explain that my going to hell was someone else's fault. Will that fly on that Day? I almost want to laugh at myself when I think of it. Putting another person before Allah, I believe for myself to be a form of shirk. By my putting this relationship, this temporary relationship, ahead of God in my priorities, I feel that I am committing a grievious sin.

I love my wife. I truly do in all manners and ways that one can upon this Earth. Yet this life is not it. She is not it. She will never complete me and give me that happiness that a pure relationship with Allah can. Like all relationships, the one with Allah must be worked on as well. Just as there many be ups and downs in a human relationship so can our relationship with Allah have highs and lows. The point is to keep going and improving even if it is only the basics that Allah has commanded from me.

These basics, especially the five daily prayers, are what opened my eyes to my situation in the first place. The advice that Muslimah gave is good, mash'Allah and should be used. I intend to do so. Yet if one is not even praying every time and on time, our most basic but strongest connection with Allah is not being utilized.

Ask Allah for help in this and He will Give you relief if that is what you truly seek. Doing good is not easy when one is out of practice. It is even harder if one continues to do bad. It is like trying to wipe dirt off of one's clothes as you sit in a puddle of mud. Almost impossible to get clean.

I am sorry for the long post but this is an issue that hits very close to home. I want to help others if I can as well as recieve help from all of you.

Jazakum Allah

wa aleikum salam

I didn't quite understand the first post......i assumed he was commiting haram....dating ect? And if so, you seem to take it very lightly. SubhanAllah. Listen to the naseeha of sis Muslimah.

And as sis Muslimah said would you want this for your sister. A man came to the Prophet sallaAllahu alihi wa salam and said, I will accept Islam but i will continue to commit zina. And the Prophet said: Would you like this for your mother and the man said no, so he said would you like this for your sister and he said no. And he sws said would you like this for your daughter and the bedouin said no, so he sallaiAllahu alihi wa salam said So how can you like this for yourself?

Dan, the Prophet salliAllahu alihi wa salam said: A woman is married for four things: beauty, social position, lineage and religion. And marry the last so you may succeed.

May Allah subhana wa tala ease your circumstances.

Salam

Firstly im not a he im a she. Secondly u said i tk things very lightly, wen u go onto the rite path u tend to do this. U dnt actually c wt ur doing wrong until after u have realised ur mistakes.

Inshallah i will follow wot sis muslimah has said.

Dan its good to see how sum1 can be so strong in thier faith deen to take such step in life. I just hope that i can became as strong as u and not tk the wrong steps in life again. And it is good to hear other peopls experiences to see how they cope with issues and to get thier views and opnions. inshallah i hope dat u stay as strong in faith as u r and dat Allah helps u to carry on. Ameen.

I must say that I am not strong in my faith at all. Allah is Strong. The only thing that I hold dear to me is that I know when I ask Allah for His Help, He Gives it to me. I know this as a fact. He may not Answer me in the manner that I want but I always get an answer.

I found that I used to ask Allah for His Help but in my mind with the stipulation that He would Do as I wanted. This thinking is now ridiculous to me. If I am asking for Allah's Help, then I am in a situation where I am admitting that I do not know what I am doing, at the very least. Then I ask for Help but only in the way that I want? My way clearly does not work. I see how unhappy I am and how little knowledge I have. How could I possibly put stipulations on the Guidance of Allah?

Now I ask Allah for His Guidance with an open heart, willing to accept whatever His Judgement may be. Before my wife and I seperated, I prayed that she would be Guided. I prayed she would become a good muslim. Finally, I prayed that Allah would provide me with what was best for the relationship between Allah and me. I prayed for a wife who would assist me is growing closer to Allah. So far, the signs have been pointing to the fact that my wife is not this person. This is not what I wanted at first. But ultimately I want Allah's Will for me so I will be patient. Insha'Allah I will get rewarded, if not here then later when it really matters.

My only strength comes from my desire to do Allah's Will and the patience to carry it out when I percieve it.

May Allah Make us all strong in our iman and willing to carry out Allah's Will for us.

Allah Forgive me.

Assalamu alikum

Life, sister sin is a major barrier of receiving Allah tala's help.

On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said : the messenger of Allah said :

"Allah the Almighty is good and accepts only that which is good. Allah has commanded the faithful to do that which he commanded the messengers, and the Almighty has said: "O ye messengers ! Eat of the good things and do right". And Allah the Almighty has said : "O ye who believe! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you"

Then he mentioned [the case of] a man who, having journeyed far, is dishevelled and dusty and who spreads out his hands to the sky [saying] : "O Lord! O Lord!" - while his food is unlawful, his drink unlawful, his clothing unlawful, and he is nourished unlawfully, so how can he be answered !"

Related by Muslim

If we give up the sin fisabeelilah, Allah tala turns in mercy and forgiveness. The first step is giving up haram.

Dan, Allah tala does not forsake the one who gives up someone he loves for His sake. Be patient and you will see that. We all have different tests in life. And Allah tala will test us with that which we love most. Otherwise where is the test?

MashAllah you show wisdom in your understanding of why some du'aa may not be answered. Allah tala knows that which we don't.

Sabrun jamilah.

This is a lovely article on du'aa.

A Delayed Response

Sayd al-Khaatir by Ibn al-Jawzee

Translated by Zaynah ar-Rawahee

While talking to himself Ibn Al-Jawzi was blaming his soul in a gentle way. He said: I found myself in trouble, and so I made Du'aa consistently, all the while requesting relief and comfort. The response to my Du'aa seemed to be delayed, and so my soul became disturbed and worried.

However, I rebuked it saying, "Woe unto you; look attentively at yourself, are you the one possessed or are you the possessor? Are you the one that is controlled or are you the controller? Are you not aware that this world is the abode of tests for you? If you desire that your goals be fulfilled and become impatient when they are not, then, where is your test? Is it not the ultimate test when you get the opposite of whatever you desired?

"So, (dear restless soul) try to understand the meaning of the word 'Abd, and whatever is dear to you will become worthless, and whatever is difficult will become easy." After it deliberated over what I said, it became a little appeased.

I informed it that I had a second argument for it, and so I said, "Allah (azza wajal) is a necessary requirement in order for any of your aims to be fulfilled; yet you do not exhort yourself to work for His (azza wajal) pleasure. This is ignorance, as the matter should have been opposite to what yohu desire, primarily because you are the one possessed. (You should note) that the mindful 'Abd should make sure that he fulfills the rights due to the Master, and that it is not necessary that He (azza wajal) gives to Al-'Abd whatever he desires or loves."

It made it quieter yet I then mentioned that I had a third argument for it, and so I said, "You are under the impression that the response to your Du'aa has been slow; yet you were responsible for this because you closed the door of response (to your Du'aa) because of your constant sinning. If, however, you open the door [by developing Taqwa for Allah (azza wajal)], then the response (to your Du'aa) would arrive quicker, because having Taqwa for Allah (azza wajal) is the cause of all comfort." Allah (azza wajal) said:

"...And whoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him (Taqwa), He will make a way for him, to get out (from every difficulty), and will provide for him from sources that he never could imagine…" [At-Talaaq:2-3]

Therefore, understand that if you do not develop this Taqwa for Him (subhana wa ta'ala), the result will be different from what you expect. Woe is me from the drunkenness of mindlessness which became stronger than any other drunkenness in confronting the soul's aims to prevent them ftom reaching its hopes. It (the soul) knew that this was the truth, and so it became more tranquil still.

I said to it, "I have a forth argument for you, and it is that you seek a particular answer (to your Du'aa); yet you are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. In this state you are like a feverish child asking for candy.

"(0 soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are." As

He (azza wajal) said:

"... And maybe you will dislike something that is good for You…" [Al- Baqarah:2161

When this became clear to the soul, it became more tranquil still. I then said to it, "I have a fifth argument for you, and it is that your demands would lessen your rewards and would reduce your status (with Allah). However, if you would request that which is good for your eternal abode

(Al-Aakhirah), it would be better for you.

(O soul) it is crucial that you understand what I have explained."

It said, "I meandered in the garden of your explanation,

and as such I wandered when I understood."
