Walking out with as much of the Sunnah as you can carry.

لا إله إلا الله

Wearing the hijab is so much more than simply covering yourself.
It’s smiling harder at the person taking your order.
It’s waiting, holding the door open for people who are still quite far from the exit.
It’s speaking extra softly.
It’s folding clothes back you otherwise wouldn’t have.
It’s being patient when you have every right to be upset.
It’s hurrying to the aid of strangers.
It’s offering your parking spot for someone else, even though the carpark is full.
It’s racing to pick up something someone dropped before they can even bend down.
It’s showing mercy, where anger can be justified.
It’s about leaving your personality at the door and walking out with as much of the Sunnah as you can carry.
It’s thinking about representing Islam as best as you can, praying that one of your little…

a sense of protection

Yaa Muslimah,
Yaa ukhti al-Habiba:

لا إله إلا الله

Something which I think us sisters need to change is our need to always go out.
Going to malls, cafes and going out to have lunch with our friends/sisters.
This is something that is so so normalized and something that is (in our time) the norm of the 21 century.
The prob is just that, we as Muslims shouldn’t change our deen with the seasons or the century’s.
Even if we live in 2016, our heart, mind and spirits should act like 1400 years ago.
Yaa Muslimah,
Yaa ukhti al-Habiba:
Why do you have the need to always be “out there” this is something that I myself need to change but wallahi it is a serious matter.
Allah azza-wa-jall told us that our houses were better for us.
He even ordered us in the Quran:
“And stay in your houses” {33:33}

How were the sahabas able to work and study at the same time?

Because they were the furthest from being lazy

لا إله إلا الله

How were the sahabas able to work and study at the same time?
Because they were the furthest from being lazy. If they had a chance to work they would work.
How come we are failing today and they were successful in their endeavours?
Umar Ibn Khattab (ra):
He was a businessman and made an agreement with his Ansari partner.
“I’m going to work one day, you go to the messenger (saw) and inform me of the knowledge. And the following day you will work and I will go to the messenger (saw).” So, they would alternate.
This meant that Umar Ibn khattab (ra) and his partner meant they would have to do double the work. His work and his partners work in one day. And his partner would have to do his work and Umar’s work in one day
Every human being…

When you truly love someone

I want to love him more than I’ve loved anyone else.

لا إله إلا الله

When you truly love someone, that love permeates throughout your blood and your body.
Seeing something that reminds you of them, the mere mention of their name, a faint memory.
It physically does something to you.
So much so that the people around you may notice your eyes dropping, your head turning away, or any sort of body language that’s indicative of that love running through your veins.
Your physical gesturing is a giveaway of that love manifesting itself in your being, and at times you can’t control it. Especially if they’ve passed or they’re not around.
It was was said that when our Prophet, sallalahu alayhi wa salam, passed away, Bilal was not even able to say his name during the adthan without stuttering and crying.
It was said about Imam Malik, that the colour of his skin used to change at the mention…

The most virtuous female Tabi’een

Her name is Khayra and she is a female companion and has no narrations in the 6 books (of hadeeth)

لا إله إلا الله


The most virtuous female Tabi’een (التابعيَّات)

As mentioned by Imam Abu Bakr Ibn Abi Dawud as mentioned from him in Tadreeb ar Rawi of Imam As Suyuti and others:

– Hafsa bint Sireen,
– Amrah bint Abdirrahman,
– Umm Darda (As Sughra)

For extra benefit:

All three of them have narrations in the 6 books of hadeeth (Bukhari, Muslim, An Nasaa’i, Abu Dawud, At Tirmithi, and Ibn Maajah)

Hafsa Bint Sireen then her brothers were Muhammad (the famous Imam),

Anas, Yahya and Ma’bad and she had a sister Kareemah and Ma’bad was the oldest of them and Hafsa the youngest of them
As for Umm Darda As Sughra then she is not Umm Darda from the female companions.

Shaykh Abdul Muhsin mentioned:

Umm Darda Al Kubra رضي الله عنها: Her name is Khayra and she is a female companion and has no narrations in the 6 books (of hadeeth)
