I leave you with a question this Ramadān. Do you seek comfort in this dunyā or do you seek peace of your heart?
Know that this dunyā was never made to find comfort in cause it’s nothing but a delusion, the ones that seek comfort in this temporary place lose both their dunyā & aakhirah.
What’s the difference between peace and comfort though?
Comfort is you sleeping in a king sized bed with a dozen pillows & silk bed sheets & comforters made of velvet & what not, but do you know what peace is? Peace is you giving your blanket to someone who’s more in need of it while you sleep without it in cold, sounds uncomfortable, eh? That may not be the easiest thing to endure but wallāhi the peace that brings to the qalb is , knowing you did it all for His sake.
Comfort is you…

When you see the guy give up the club, put down the bottle, and replace listening to rap tunes with the Book of Allāh in Ramadan – that isn’t fake…. That’s the pinnacle of faith.
When you see people taking the Qur’an off that dusty shelf and reciting it for the first time in the year – that isn’t being ‘typical’…. That’s true belief.
When you see a person sharing Islamic posts in the month despite their shortcomings – that’s not double standards…. That’s a sign that a light exists in the heart.

“Fasting in Ramadan develops in a person the real spirit of social belonging, of unity and brotherhood, and of equality before Allah. This spirit is the natural product of the fact that when people fast they feel that they are joining the whole Muslim society (which makes up more than one fifth of world’s population) in observing the same duty, in the same manner, at the same time, for the same motives, and for the same end.
No sociologist or historian can say that there has been at any period of history anything comparable to this powerful institution of Islam: Fasting in the month of Ramadan.
People have been crying throughout the ages for acceptable ‘belonging’, for unity, for brotherhood, for equality, but how echoless their voices have been, and how very little success they have met…” says Hammudah Abdalati, in Islam in Focus.

Following are four ways (of course from many) that we can implement to make our relationships with our kin stronger and more of goodness:
1. Dream big – Imagine all the families that crave for just one baby, one family member, one relative. Alhamdulillaah, if Allah (subhanahu wa ta`ala) has blessed you with a good number of kith and kin there is definitely a wisdom behind it. Dream to accomplish noble missions like many of the Prophets accomplished with the support of their families. Dream of having a family that become an exemplary family in the society and that lives in harmony with themselves and as a result extends their help to those who need support to strengthen and survive their families.
In today’s fast moving world, we talk a lot about team work. I say, there can be no greater and more effective team work than the team work…

Haya is not just feeling shy in front of someone but it consists of many other aspects which can be achieved step wise by assessing ourselves in the following points-
1. Haya in the way we dress
Dress is perhaps the most widely thought of in terms of modesty. Dressing up in the right way as commanded by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala plays a major role in boosting our imaan as well as bringing us closer to Allah. There are many instances in which people feel close to Allah by just covering themselves up rightly. But we also need to be wary of avoiding boastfulness or vanity about the way we dress.
2. Haya in what we watch/read
We should be wary of what we watch on the television or read. Television is the number one source of immodesty followed by books. You can find n number of shows…
