So let’s wage a war against bad intentions and dark thoughts .Let’s tame them in the same way we tamed rebellious waves and conquered lofty mountains . Let our words and actions be a mirror of genuine and kind thoughts and pure intentions not only because we are blessed creatures into whom Allah breathed his soul and evil doesn’t befit us.Let’s pour into the world kindness for “Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

we protest against the disrespect of our prophet (P.B.U.H)
|“That was the reasoning about Us which We gave to Abraham (to use) against his people: We raise whom We will degree after degree: for thy Lord is full of wisdom and knowledge. We gave him Isaac and Jacob: all (three) We guided: and before him We guided Noah and before him We guided Noah and among his progeny David Solomon Ayub Joseph Moses and Aaron: thus do We reward those who do good” Quran 6:83-84|
|“Truly! We found him patient. How excellent a slave! Verily, he was ever oft-returning in repentance to Us” Quran 38:44|
A group of angels were discussing Allah’s other human creatures, how those who were humble earned Allah’s displease, while those who were arrogant incurred His displeasure. One of the angels remarked:
“The best creature on earth today is Ayub, a man of noble character who displays excellent patience and always remembers his Generous Lord. He is an excellent model for the worshippers of Allah. In return, his Lord has blessed him with a long life and plenty of riches, yet he is never haughty or selfish. His family, his servants, as well as the needy and the poor share in his good fortune; he feeds and clothes the poor and buys slaves to set them free. He makes those who receive his charity feel as if they are favouring him, so kind and gentle is he.”
Iblis, overhearing all this, became annoyed. He planned to tempt Ayub to corruption and disbelief, so he hastened to him. He tried to distract Ayub from his prayers by whispering to him about the good things in life, but Ayub was a true believer and would not let evil thoughts tempt him. This disturbed Iblis more; thus he began to hate Ayub even more.
Iblis complained to Allah about Ayub. He said that although he was continuously glorifying Allah, he was not doing so out of his sincerity but to satisfy Allah so that his wealth should not be taken away. It was all a show, all out of greed. “If You remove his wealth then You will find that his tongue will no longer mention Your name and his praying will stop.”
Allah told Iblis that Ayub was one of His most sincere devotees. He did not worship Him because of the favors; his worship stemmed from his heart and had nothing to do with material things. But to prove Iblis the depth of Ayub’ s sincerity and patience, Allah allowed him to do whatever he and his helpers wished with Ayub’s wealth.
Iblis was very happy. He gathered his helpers and set about destroying Ayub’s cattle, servants, and farms until he was left with no possessions. Rubbing his hands in glee, Iblis appeared before Ayub in the guise of a wise old man and said to him:
“All your wealth is lost. Some people say that it is because you gave too much charity and that you are wasting your time with your continuous prayers to Allah. Others say that Allah has bought this upon you in order to please your enemies. If Allah had the capacity to prevent harm, then He would have protected your wealth”
True to his belief, Ayub replied:
“What Allah has taken away from me belongs to Him. I was only its trustee for a while. He gives to whom He wills and withholds from whom He wills”
With these words, Ayub again prostrated to his Lord.
When Iblis saw this, he felt frustrated, so he again addressed Allah:
“I have stripped Ayub of all his possessions, but he still remains grateful to You. However, he is only hiding his disappointment, for he places great store by his many children. The real test of a parent is through him children. You will then see how Ayub will reject You”
Allah granted Iblis authority, but warned him that it would not reduce Ayub’s faith in his Lord nor his patience.
Iblis again gathered his helpers and set about his evil deeds. He shook the foundation of the house in which Ayub’s children were living and sent the building crashing, killing all of them. Then he went to Ayub disguised as a man who had come to sympathize with him. In a comforting tone he said to Ayub:
“The circumstances under which your children died were sad. Surely, your Lord is not rewarding you properly for all your prayers?”
Having said this Iblis waited anxiously, hoping Ayub was now ready to reject Allah. But again Ayub disappointed him by replying:
“Allah sometimes gives and sometimes takes. He is sometimes pleased and sometimes displeased with our deeds. Whether a thing is beneficial or harmful to me, I will remain firm in my belief and remain thankful to my Creator”
Then Ayub prostrated to his Lord. At this Iblis was extremely vexed. Iblis again called on Allah:
“O my Lord, Ayub’s wealth is gone, his children are dead, but he is still healthy in body, and as long as he enjoys good health he will continue to worship You in the hope of regaining his wealth and producing more children. Grant me authority over his body so that I may weaken it. He will surely neglect worshipping You and withh thus becomes disobedient”
Allah wanted to teach Iblis a lesson that Ayub was a devoted servant of his Lord, so He granted Iblis his third request but placed a condition:
“I give you authority over his body but not over his soul, intellect, or heart, for in these places reside the knowledge of Me and My religion”
Armed with this new authority, Iblis began to take revenge on Ayub’s body and filled it with disease until it was reduced to mere skin and bone and he suffered severe pain. But through all the suffering Ayub remained string in his faith, patiently bearing all the hardships without complaining. Allah’s righteous servant did not despair or turn to others for help but remained hopeful of Allah’s Mercy. Even close relatives and friends deserted him. Only his kind loving wife stayed with him. In his hour of need, she showered her kindness on him and cared for him. She remained his sole companion and comforter through many years of his suffering.
Ibn Asaker narrated: “Ayub was a man having much wealth of all kinds: beasts, slaves, sheep, vast lands of Haran and many children. All those favors were taken from him and he was physically afflicted as well. Never a single organ was sound except his heart and tongue, with both of which he glorified Allah, the Almighty all the time day and night. His disease lasted for a long time until his visitors felt disgusted with him. His friend kept away from him, and people abstained from visiting him. No one felt sympathy for him except his wife. She took good care of him, knowing his former charity and pity for her”
Therefore, Iblis became desperate. He consulted his helpers but they could not advise him. They asked:
“How is it that your cleverness cannot work against Ayub, yet you succeeded in misleading Adam, the father of man, out of paradise?”
Iblis went to Ayub’s wife in the form of a man. “Where is your husband?” he asked her.
She pointed to an almost lifeless form crumpled on the bed and said: “There he is, suspended between life and death.”
Iblis reminded her of the days when Ayub had good health, wealth and children. Suddenly, the painful memory of yeas of hardship overcame her, and she burst into tears. She said to Ayub:
“How long are you going to bear this torture from our Lord? Are we to remain without wealth, children or friends forever? Why don’t you call upon Allah to remove this suffering?”
Ayub sighed, and in a soft voice replied:
“Iblis must have whispered to you and made you dissatisfied. Tell me, how long did I enjoy good health and riches?”
She replied, “For eighty years”
Then Ayub asked, “How long am I suffering like this?”
She said, “for seven years”
Then Ayub told her:
“In that case I am ashamed to call on my Lord to remove the hardship, for I have not suffered longer than the years of good health and plenty. It seems your faith has weakened and you are dissatisfied with the fate of Allah. If I ever again health, I swear I will punish you with a hundred strokes! From this day onward, I forbid myself to eat or drink anything from your hand. Leave me alone and let my Lord do with me as He pleases.”
Crying bitterly and with a heavy heart, she had no choice but to leave him and seek shelter elsewhere. In his helpless state, Ayub turned to Allah, notto complain but to seek His mercy:
|“Verily, dsitress has seized me, and You and the Most Merciful of all those who show Mercy. So We answered his call, and We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his family to him (that he had lost) and the like thereof along with them – as a mercy from Ourselves and a Reminder for all who whorship Us” Quran 21:83-84|
|“Commemorate Our servant Ayub behold he cried to his Lord: “The Evil One has afflicted me with distress and suffering”! (The command was given:) “Strike with thy foot: here is (water) wherein to wash cool and refreshing and (water) to drink.” And We gave him (back) his people and doubled their number as a Grace from Ourselves and a thing for commemoration for all who have Understanding.” Quran 38:41-43|
Ayub was now worried, for he had taken an oath to punish her with a hundred strokes if he regained health, but he had no desire to hurt her. He knew if he did not fulfill the oath, he would be guilty of breaking a promise to Allah. Therefore, in His wisdom and mercy, Allah came to the assistance of His faithful servant, and advised him: .
|“And take in your hand a bundle of thin grass and strike therewith (your wife), and break not your oath. Truly we found him patient. How excellent a slave! Verily, he was ever oft-returning in repentance to Us”Quran 38:44|
|“While Ayub was naked, taking a bath, a swarm of locusts fell on him, and he started collecting them in his garment. His Lord called him: ‘O Ayub! Have I not made you too rich to need what you see?’ He said: ‘Yes, O Lord! But I cannot shun Your Blessings” (Bukhari)
|“Truly! We found him patient. How excellent (a) slave! Verily, he was ever oft returning in repentance (to us).” [Quran:38:4].|
|“And (remember) Ayub when he cried to his Lord: Verily, distress has seized me and you are the Most Merciful of all who show mercy.” [Quraan:21:83]|
|“So We answered his call, and We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his family to him (that he had lost), and the like thereof along with them, as a mercy from Ourselves and a Reminder for all those who worship us.” [Quraan:21:84]

♥A true muslim respects his non-muslim neighbor and he has duties towards him including protecting his interests when he is absent , showing him respect when he is present, helping him when he is inflicted with any injustice , not remaining on look-out to detect his faults ; and if , by any chance , he happens to know any undesirable thing about him , hides it from others . And, at the same time, he tries to desist him from improper habits, if there is any chance that he will listen to him , never leaving him alone in any calamity,forgive him, if he has done any wrong .♥
♥ That was and is the teaching of our beloved Muhammad peace upon him whom Allah Subhanoho wa-T’ala Says to him in The Holy Quran:
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِين
“And We have not sent you except as a mercy to mankind.” (The Prophets 21:107).
Our beloved prophet Muhammad may peace be upon him, enjoins us to show mercy towards non-muslims as he had always done . Some of his neighbors were non-muslims. He would be kind to them like the Jewish poor family he would regularly gave charity to . Even after his death , Muslims maintained his charity towards them . Another story bears witness to his mercy ,that of Christian delegation from Ethiopian churches who came to Medina and the Prophet opened up his mosque for them to stay in, hosted them generously, and personally served them meals. He said:“They were generous to our companions, so I wish to be generous to them in person…” ♥
♥A true Muslim doesn’t take lives either for life is sacred even that of small creatures and Allah the almighty will chastise those who trespass his commandment about that . Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him too preaches kindness not cruelty and hatred . It is narrated that during a journey the Prophet left his companion for a while. During his absence, his companion saw a bird called hummara and took two young ones away from the mother bird. The mother bird was circling above in the air, beating its wings in grief, when the Prophet came back and said: “Who has hurt the feelings of this bird by taking its young? Return them to her”. The Prophet companion then replaced the offspring in the same bush.Another stories tells that on the way to a battle, the Prophet army marched towards Makkah (now known as Mecca) to conquer it, they passed a female dog with puppies. The Prophet not only gave orders that the mother dog and puppies should not be hurt or disturbed, but posted a man to see that this was done.
♥A true muslim is not a murder or a ” suicid bomber ” . Allah condemns killing the innocent . Allah ,the almighty says in his holy book:
[Quran 60:8] GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable.
[Quran 8:61] If they resort to peace, so shall you, and put your trust in GOD. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.
[Quran 4:90]”…Therefore, if they leave you alone, refrain from fighting you, and offer you peace, then GOD gives you no excuse to fight them.”
You refer to all muslims as “suicid bombers” in your poem and that’s wrong, and illogical and too judgmental . You disdain suicid bombers for taking lives of the innocent while you point an accusing finger at people ,calling them murders ,stripping them of their honor, kindness and humanity on the ground that a muslim exploded himself . You try to ruin the reputation of people who don’t know anything about harming others . Allah don’t punish people for the faults of others , each has to take the responsibility of their actions. Who gave you the right to judge people ? you don’t even know their names ,their background,their culture, or their dreams ! ♥I am muslim and I am proud of being Muslim for Islam preaches love, tolerance, altruism and compassion .With every Dawn prayer ,with every Ramadan, with every new sunrise and new sunset ,I praise Allah for being a muslim for the serenity I feel is beyond description .♥ Please make sure not to twist my words when reporting them next time . I didn’t say suicider bomb sisters and brothers in Islam . I said sister and brother in Islam , it was a warm greeting that you twisted its meaning .It would be more credible and honest to report my words as they are for honesty is a fabric of us as human too isn’t it?

Why do muslims fast Ramadan?
Why do muslims pray 5 times a day?
- I don’t know where you come from but I know that miles ,mountains and seas which set us apart can’t t break that human bridge . I wish I knew your name for friends call each others by their name and it seems I’m a friend because you called me so . I would love to tell you that Me being a muslim,and YOU being a Christian ,or he being a muslim and she being a christian doesn’t give us the right to hurt or insult each other. I disdain any Muslim who forgets who he is and crosses lines Islam commands us not to trespass when dealing with others let alone when they’re non muslims. A muslim, as our beloved Prophet may peace be upon him said: “The Muslim is not an accuser, curser, curser with evil tongue (big curser), or minor curser“.
Lut was Ibraham’s nephew and Allah’s messenger to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah which were situated on the Jordan river plain in the Southern region of the land of Canaan. Therein , men as Allah says in the holy Quran : بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم“ Will ye not fear (Allah)? I am to you a messenger worthy of all trust. So fear Allah and obey me. No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from the lord of the Worlds. Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing (all limits)!” They said: “If thou desist not, O Lut! thou wilt assuredly be cast out!” He said: “I do detest your doings.” (Surat ash-Shuara: 160-168)
When Lut’s people disputed about his warning , Allah punished them . He says: ” When Our Decree issued, We turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstone hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer,marked as from thy Lord: Nor are they ever far from those who do wrong! (Surah Hud: 82-83)
The Bible too forbids sodomy.Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.Sodomy is synonym with human extinction Marriage is Allah’s blessing the union of man and woman .It’s embodiment of that sacred feeling called love.And offsprings are the fruits of a blessed union and Allah’s genesis on earth which becomes man’s responsibility to keep life beating within the womb of universe.That noble mission wouldn’t be fulfilled by the union of two men .What would happen to human race if all men descend into sodomy ? Life will perish.
Many homosexuals admit they are pedophiles . A research showed that 73 ./. homosexuals committed more than 33./. of all reported child molestation in the United States . It should be noted that homosexuals themselves were preyed on by a male in their tender years ,they were sexually abused as children .It looks like they have create their own host to inherit their legacy and make of it a way of life .sodomy breaks the law of human body Allah molded the human body according to codes and laws that it collapses once breaking them as diseases will start eating it away to the bone . Homosexual act is considered to be devious by human body, in that there are substances in seminal fluid called “immuno -regulatory macromolecules” that speaks language that is only understood by the female body which will then permit the two in one flesh intimacy required for human reproduction.When deposited else where,this language or signals sent out ,are not only misunderstood ,but cause sperm to fuse with whatever somatic body cell they encounter and thus resulting in the development of cancerous malignancies . Sodomy is also a thorny route to death because of the incurable lethal disease it generates .For example engaging in anal intercourse leads to anal cancer,transmission of the HIV/AIDS, genital warts,cryplosporidium,and other package of deadly maladies. Sodomy is satan’s devious means to mislead Adam’s children from the right path because Allah has chosen Adam whom created of clay over him .It was a trap that will lead to human degradation and loss if it is not uprooted from the human soil.

In pre-islamic arabia , girls were buried alive .“When news is brought to one of them, of [the birth of] a female [child], his face darkens, and he is filled with inward grief! With shame does he hide himself from his people, because of the bad news he has received! Shall he keep this [child] despite the contempt [which he feels for it] or shall he bury it in the dust? Oh, evil is indeed whatever they decide!” – The Quran (16:58-59) . But Islam has come to draw the curtain on this devious ritual to teach barbarians that daughters are nothing but undrained fount of blessing that Allah has promised those who are kind to their daughters or their sisters a place in paradise .Also ,Quran chastises Parents who choose sons over daughters .Like boys , girls must be provided with everything that will turn them into successful , and pious persons.
2-Woman is a precious pearl Woman’s hijab is her holy armor against luscious gazes .She is as precious as sea pearls and earth diamonds. The sea engulfs greedy ships to harbor his pearls. Mountains shield their diamonds and so does hijab. Muslim woman loves her hijab and she doesn’t wear it against her will ,a truth that those who hate Islam do everything in their power to twist it and portray Muslim woman as a slave deprived of her freedom. 3-Woman is not a public property Woman’s body is sacred in Islam .His secrets must be unveiled only to a husband . When disgracing it, woman will be stoned to death or whipped to purify her body and soul . Allah wants man to appreciate woman ,to respect her, to honor her and to love her , and fornication is not the decent way to embody all that.What apperciation is in putting woman through rough times because of unwanted pregnancy .What love is in shunning woman after preying on her body and soul just because man thought he was in love with her but it turned it wasn’t . 4-Woman is treasured as a wife The most divine moments shared by woman and man are sacred that Allah commanded husbands to be kind to their wives . A man for instance is forbidden from forcing his wife to sex “O ye who believe! Ye are forbidden to inherit women against their will. Nor should ye treat them with harshness, that ye may take away part of the dower [money given by the husband to the wife for the marriage contract] ye have given them, except where they have been guilty of open lewdness; on the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If ye take a dislike to them it may be that ye dislike a thing, and God brings about through it a great deal of good (Qu’ran An-nisa 19) Anal sex and sex during menstruation are prohibited for their ominous health hazards as well .“If anyone [resorts to a diviner and believes in what he says (according) to the version of Musa) or] has intercourse with his wife (according to the agreed version) when she is menstruating, or has intercourse with his wife through her anus, he has nothing to do with what has been sent down to Muhammad.”—Narrated by Abu Hurairah, Book of Divination and Omens. Suna Abu Dawud. 5-Why 4 wives? Woman has outnumbered men , and man’s marrying four women is Allah’s wisdom to keep woman from falling in the abyss of evil and protect society . It should be noted that Allah allows but does not command a man to have four women .And when marrying 4 , he has to treat them equally. Allah says:
“Marry women of your choice, two or three, or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice.” [4:3] or he has to have just one wife . Marriage is so sanctified that Allah’s throne shakes when the sacred bond between husband and wife is broken . In Islam woman must be honored for she holds all secrets of life ,beauty and love.
Abortion is like turning down Allah’s gift .This is what children are ; they’re a holy gift. Some appreciate it , embrace it, and tend it like a rose till it blooms .Others discard it mercilessly. In a single moment of weakness, selfishness and loneliness, woman can make the worst mistake in her entire life, and the most hideous crime on earth ; dousing the flame of the life of her own child.
remember that parenting is a blessing. It can be a far-reaching dream for some, while it’s standing at your life door .So instead of strangling the fount of life in you, celebrate it,nurture that seed of life , hope and unconditional love within you.
Children are special gift that gets more precious and precious day in , day out . They’re full of endless surprises, joyous ones. That kid will grow to become a decent man or woman to protect you against time’s broken promises, and to sooth your old age. Even if birds migrate , they always come back to their old home, a home the floor of which is yearning to feel the touch of your kid ‘s toes .
Remember that you’re not only going to rob your child of his or her right to try a capricious but beautiful life, of his right to know what love and joy is , and of his right to harvest victory after failure ,but you’re also going to deny yourself the chance to experience a sublime feeling ;being a mother who rejoices in seeing that flower blooms as she or he is feeding on your soil no matter how exhausted you feel or ugly you look.
Also, to Legitimate abortion teaches people that they can get away with their misdeeds. Outcomes cannot be eliminated all the time ,sometimes we have to live with them.The latter can be beyond endurance that they will cost one’s life, but they’re the fruit of your choice and you have to pick up them even rotten fruits .For instance ,in Muslim society pre-marital sex is forbidden and a woman ‘s pregnancy out of marriage will cost her -after delivering her child -her life . A passing desire flamed by liquor or drug will cost lives or honor and termination of pregnancy will add salt to injury.

Was it worth it to let a friend in need down ? If you do, who’s then going to carry your coffin? Only a friend’s shoulder can bear the weight of your cold bones.
Was it worth it to scream at your old mother ? If you do, how then are you going to pay her lost whispers to sooth your young frail soul back? Only your tender voice can empower her weakness.
Was it worth it to unveil a woman or a man’s sins ? If you do, how then do you expect the Almighty to cover yours? Only your prayers for them can dim the darkness of sin in you.
Was it worth it to argue with your neighbor on worldly possessions? If you do then who’s going to dig your grave? Only a neighbor and a father and a son weep when entrusting the earth with you .
Was it worth it to tak life from people ? If you do ,then who’s going to share with you winter ? Only human beings can dance under the rain.
Was it worth it to fight for worldly possessions that we will leave behind us when we die and take none ? Was it worth it to spend all our lifetime drowned in hatred because of tiny differences that Allah has created to keep monotony and brooding clouds away from our life and grow seeds of compassion in our souls?

Soul is a holy pearl and body is its earthly home. Deep , mischievous waves were striving to fling it on the land of sins but they broke against the sound rocks of a believing heart till the guileful evil sewed for them disguise costumes to make the body yield to its desires and temptation and it can steal that pearl of its whiteness purity and chastity . Those costumes are drinking, lying ,stealing, adultery, but the ugliest one of them is masturbation.
It angers the Almighty
Masturbation is evil ‘s bait to entrap a Muslim in committing sins and strips him of his cloak of chastity and virtue and clothe him in corruption and vice .Chastity does not only entail you keeping fornication, adultery sodomy at bay. But it also entails you keeping from the distorted way to satisfy lust; masturbation .The latter rots the soul and the body and angers the Almighty who commands us to “and those who do not find the means to marry should remain chaste until Allah gives them resources by his grace. Al Muminoon : verse 32.” In that The one who masturbates will be among the seven persons whom Allah will not look at them on the day of judgment ,nor will he include them amongst the learned and Allah will enter them into the hell .They will enter the hell first except those who repent. As for those who repent Allah will accept their repentance .Those 7 persons are :
1-A person who masturbates
2-A person who performs the act of sodomy.
3-The person upon who the act of sodomy is performed.
4-A perpetual drunkard .
5-The person who hits his parents so much so that they appeal for help .
6-The person who harms his neighbors so much that they curse him.
7-The person who commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife. ( Ibn Katheer . Vol 5 . pg 458)
A journey to the cemetery of diseases .
An unending journey with diseases
Masturbation is a fleeting pleasure that will chain your body to perpetual diseases. Medical science have proven that masturbation :
– enfeebles sexual organ in that it creates looseness in it.
– creates seminal (spermatic) inflammation in the testicle which causes quick ejaculation of sperm.
– weakens the very delicate veins and fine nerves and veins of the sexual organs resulting in sexual impotency.
– causes an excessive loss of sperm by way of nocturnal emission .( wet dreams)
– causes an excessive loss of blood as it takes 80 drops of blood to produce one drop of sperm.
– weakens the eye-sight and reduces its normal limit of vision.
– – weakens cerebral of glands of the brain which in turn enfeebles the power of perception and reason .
– weakens memory as well.
To masturbate is growing a seed of a tree the fruit of which are rotten and you will be the only to taste those sickly fruits ,that’s you have to uproot it if you sprinkled some in your sacred body .
When committing sins or transgressing Allah’s laws ,the human feels ashamed and down hearted. When sinned , fall on your knees and plead for his forgiveness . Deep down, we know that we have a merciful creator who is there who ,when we sin ,keeps praying and his angels for us to go back to him ,to repent and ask forgiveness .Allah loves those who repent because it shows that they know there is a creator to whom we resort when our souls troubled,a creator from whom we ask forgiveness when transgressing his laws, laws that he set for our welfare and well-being. When Allah forbids something , we know deep down that he does that because it bears seeds of corruption, and sickness in it.
Prophet Muhammad may peace be upon him said:”The person who repents from sins is the beloved of Allah and he become like the those who have not committed sins.”( Ibn Majah)
Repentance ‘s seeds are
– To feel ashamed
– To discard the sin committed and to resolve on abstaining from it in the future.
– Prophet Muhammad may peace be upon him said:” Verily ,your Lord is modest and kind .When a slave lifts both hands towards Allah then he (Allah ) feels shy to return them to him empty-handed and disappointed.” ( Abu Dawood,Tirmidhi)
Hurairah Radia Allah Anhu said :” For everything there is a purifier and the purifier of the body is fasting.”
Fasting is the best technique to discipline the self and dims its desires as fasting increases the fear of Allah. Regardless to the summer heat we, Muslims keep fasting waiting to hear azan ;Allah’s call for breaking our .We do that not for him Allah not to please anyone else .It reported from Abdullah bin Amr radi allah anhu that prophet Muhammad may peace be upon him said:” fasting and Quran will intercede for a servant .Fasting will say :” O my RabbnI prevented him from food and desire during the day so accept my intercession on his behalf.The Quran will say :” I prevented him from sleeping during the night so accept my intercession on his behalf.” Hence the intercession from both will be accepted . ( Mishkat pg 173).
Allah says :” Say O Nabi to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and protect their private parts.This is more pure for them .Indeed Allah is well-aware of what they do.”
Sleep wrapped with purity
To sleep on their right-hand sides and recite Quran till sleep overpowers you. Death you will be pure .
Allah can see what you’re doing
Allah is acquainted with what we do .He IS all-knowing omniscient .He’s the king and king of kings should be respected and revered.Not t o mention his anger seeing you doing things he forbid . Ibn Jauzi said:”By the oath of Allah ,a person’s thirst to commit a sin will only be quenched when despite having the ardent desire and capability to do it ,realizes that Allah Talla is looking at him feels ashamed and consequently discards the sin.”
Punishment of Masturbation
Hadhrat Anas narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said,’The person who performs Nikah with his hands (i.e. maturbates) is cursed. (Tafseer Mazhari vo.12 p.94)
Saeed bin Jubayr narrates that Rasulullah (Sallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, Allah Taala will inflict a punishment on a group of people because they played with their private parts.’
Ataa (RA) says, ‘Some people will be resurrected in such a condition that their hands will be pregnant, I think they are those who masturbate.’
A muslim’s sign is childlike eyes and a body that is as pure as dewdrop,so do not tarnish them with passing evil thoughts.

Cats ans islam
The Prophet Muhammad (s) was tender and kind towards cats. He appreciated cats. Muhammad’s (s) favorite cat was called Muezza. There is a well known story regarding the Prophet Muhammad (s) and Muezza.
When the call to prayers was heard, Muezza was asleep on one of the sleeves of the Prophet’s (s) robes. The Prophet (s) wanted to wear the robe to go to prayers. Rather than disturb Muezza, Muhammad (s) cut off the sleeve to leave Muezza in peace. Prophet (s) then stroked the cat three times, which, it is said, granted Muezza seven lives and the ability to land on his feet at all times (as you might know, cats have a self-righting mechanism,a righting reflex, which is a complex series of movements when a cat falls and which protects the cat from breaking her back).
Prophet (s) was so attached to his cat that when he gave sermons he let Muezza rest on his lap and he also drank from water previously drunk by his cat. He also did his ablutions from the same water that was drunk by a cat. He seemed to treat his cat in the same way as cat lovers do today but even cat lovers might think twice about drinking the same water that had been drunk by a cat for fear of transmission of disease from the cat’s saliva (but see below).
Islam teaches Muslims to treat cats well and that the cat is a creature to be cherished and loved. Mistreating a cat is regarded as a severe sin in Islam.
Hijab is muslimah’s crown. But for decades woman in Tunisia has been discrowned. ”The jewel of the sea, the pearl, has been given a very tough and rugged Hijab – oyster shell. It protects it from sea animals and keeps it sparkling and shining inside. Our body is sacred. You’re far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.” But to not be denied her right to education , work ,and freedom ,Tunisian woman was forced to give in her crown, her hijab. Some women were even arrested and forced to sign a commitment to not wear hijab.
I still remember when at university , that man with ashen face standing at the gate of university ,a cardboard box in his hand ,urging every girl wearing hijab to remove it and put it there. Wearing hijab was a dream that Tunisian woman was yearning to be a truth. She proved to be a person full of potentials.She handled many responsibilities as a doctor,teacher,pilot, and journalist .She is a devoting mother, loving wife and inspiring woman, and she wanted to be Allah ‘s loyal servant too.She did everything in her way to gain back her crown ,the crown that Allah entrusted her with, in the hope that one day she can be that queen she is born to be .Some wore wigs .Others pretend to have flu but the weather-beaten cardboard box was always there. I was a coward , I didn’t dare to wear Hijab,because some humiliations were beyond endurence for a woman.The only time I wear hijab was when praying.Actually it was the case of most Tunisian women.I used to take my mother’s head scarves, stand in front of my mirror and try them.I was dying to wear it.Muslimah is incomplete without her crown. Now after the 17 th December revolution , Tunisian woman restored her religious freedom.Wearing Hijab is not a far-fetched reality anymore .Set free by the wind of revolution ,I started wearing hijab. I remember that day as if it was yesterday.I was in my room reciting Quoran .I stopped for a moment wondering; what’s the point of reciting Quran if I’m still uncovering my hair. I kissed the book then put it aside gently .I went to talk to my mother who was in the dinning room knitting .I told her that I took my decision to wear hijab.She was so happy to hear that .She reminded me that I should never take it off once I wore it.It’s sacred.
The next day I went shopping .I bought new wonderful head scarves .I was happy when I went to work wearing my hijab.I was on the nine cloud .I still need to work on myself to be a good muslimah .I have many flaws ;stupid ones, and wearing hijab was a good start . Thanks for those brave men and courageous women who made my dream and the dream of many Tunisian women to wear hijab become a sweet reality.
Whenever I feel down,and I need a trustworthy friend to talk to ,a friend who won’t laugh at my funny crying face,a friend who won’t make me feel small for being vulnerable ,hopeless and hapless ;I take my prayer rag ,face the Kaaba ‘above which Allah ‘s throne is located, kneel on my knees and talk to him ;my Allah ,your Allah.
He’s our creator ,he give us life, sight ,hearing ,taste ,besides priceless gifts.He brought us to life and light .We were born to savour all beauty of life, to feel the velvet touch of hope in a flower ,in a tree leaf ,in a rose petal or in a butterfly caress .He created me ,and he’s the one ,the only one who has to judge me, to punish me .He ‘s the fountain of all these blessings and I owe him ; I don’t owe you anything.
Islam is a religion of tolerance not oppression.That you wear a veil or grow a beard, doesn’t give you the right to judge people .That doesn’t make of you superior to them or better than them either. The Messenger of Allah (swt) said, ‘Allah (swt) does not look at your figures nor at your attire but He looks at your Hearts and accomplishments’ [Muslim]
Allah put the rules down in his holy book ,and he clarified the Reward of following them as well as the punishment of breaking them .People do things when they’re convinced to .You can’t force them to do things by power .If you want people follow you ,try to set a role model for them not by growing a beard or hiding behind a veil , or by pointing a gun to them .You can win them over by being a true muslim, and by praying ,for those who you think are lost, to find their way .Allah asked us to be kind to non-muslim.What if that man or woman was a muslim? “Allah forbids you not, With regard to those who Fight you not for (your) Faith Nor drive you out Of your homes, From dealing kindly and justly With them: For Allah loveth Those who are just. (The Noble Quran, 60:8)”
Allah put faith in your heart to enlighten the bridge for those who can’t find theirs to cross it to safety. Yu’re Allah’s light on earth not whip. Do remember that Abdullah b. Amr b. al-’As reported that he heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the hearts of all the sons of Adam are between the two fingers out of the fingers of the Compassionate Lord as one heart. He turns that to any (direction) He likes. Then ‘ Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: 0 Allah, the Turner of the hearts, turn our hearts to Thine obedience.

As a muslim and like all muslims all over the world, I was raised to honor and believe in all the prophets; the 124000 prophets as well as the holy books revealed to them ,ranging from Zabur,Torah (Psalms) to Gospels and Quran because all of them stand for one genuine truth ;the truth that there is only one God ,a caring God who prays and his angels that man find the straight path to heaven . We , as muslims ,are required to believe in all prophets and believing in them is one of the pillars of our Islam and surrender to Allah’s will and among them is Jesus .
We love Jesus or Isa .He was the messenger of Allah to guide children of Israel that’s why Quoranglorifies him :
“…who shall become known as the Christ Jesus, son of Mary, of great honor in this world and in the life to come, and [shall be] of those who are drawn near .”
Our prophet Muhammad peace upon him glorifies him too :“Whoever testifies that none deserves worship except God, who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger, and that Jesus is the servant of God, His Messenger, and His Word which He bestowed in Mary, and a spirit created from Him, and that Paradise is true, and that Hell is true, God will admit him into Paradise, according to his deeds.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim)
We ,muslims love jesus but do not worship him,because only God is wothy of that.
