Who listens to the distressed when it calls on Him

"Or, who listens to the (soul) distressed when it calls on Him, and who relieves its suffering, and makes you (mankind) inheritors of the earth (can there be another) God besides Allah. Little it is that ye heed!"

Chapter: Verse :27

Call on Him with Fear and Longing

"Do not mischief on the earth, after it hath been set in order, but call on Him with fear and longing: for the Mercy of Allah is (always) near to those who do good."

Chapter: 7 Verse: 56

Call on Me I will answer you

And your Lord says: "Call on Me I will answer you; surely those who are too proud for My service shall soon enter hell abased."

Chapter: 40, Verse: 60

Surely I Am Near

"And when My servants ask you concerning Me, then surely I am near; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when He calls on Me, so they should answer My call and believe in Me that they may walk in the right way".

( Chapter: 2 Verse 186)


A Muslim student is a diffrent student

Every hard-working student has a lot of positive motives that strengthen his or her performance and give them the patience to continue along the tiring path of learning.

But when it comes to a Muslim student, it differs a lot and here are some examples.

Being a Muslim student, I keep in mind while studying that Allah SWT opens a path to Paradise for those who step on the path of acquisition of knowledge.

So, I will study because as a Muslim, I do love science and knowledge by nature, they both will lead me to wisdom and development on all levels of my life.

*I will study because I know Allah has created me smart, with developed mind and I don’t want to lose -by being lazy- anything I have the ability to get indeed only with some little effort.

*I will study because I need to be someone good and to turn my current reality into the best.

*I will study because I always wanted to be a good example for an open minded Muslim Arab female, by being so I could be a reason to change the world's negative points of view about us.

This is a kind of inspiration from that period of time I'm passing through now, The final exams..

Also found here

I pray for all students to get the best of what they study and to get the results they are looking forward to...

May Allah help us all...



Ode to Prophet Muhammed

Why do you pray, Oh Prophet!
When God has promised you
Shouldn't I be thankful
Is how my Prophet responds

Oh that he would spend
Hours and hours
Waking from bed
Praying and crying to his Lord

Shouldn't I be so thankful?
To have a Prophet
Whose only aim
Was to save my soul
From the torment of the hell fire

A fire so harsh
That its asks for relief
From its own self

Could you imagine that
Being so hot that your skin melts off?
Forgive me for not being discreet

But my prophet was given this warning
As a mercy to you and me

Oh Prophet!
Who cried for his ummah
In fear that we'd go astray

But Prophet we keep your words in our heart
Though sometimes we twist and bind them
Most times your words make us cry

Oh why?
Why did you have to leave us
Your followers!
Where left in shambles
With broken hearts
And empty souls

Trying to hold on to the past
Oh Prophet!
What kind of clothes did you wear?
Oh prophet!
Did you sit on the floor or a chair?
Oh Prophet!
What was your favorite food?

Oh Prophet I have a prophetic love for you
Which doesn't always translate to action
We try to do
Everything you tell us to

Praying the way you prayed
Fasting the way you fast
Crying for a glimpse of hope
In a world of utter darkness

Hoping for the ultimate chance
To follow you in to paradise
For Allah to see us
As one of your own
And forgive us in this life


They Wonder That There Has Come to Them a Warner....

Almighty Allah said: Nay they wonder that there has come to them a warner (Muhammad) from among themselves.So the disbelievers say: 'This is a strange thing! When we are dead and have become dust (shall we be resurrected?) That is a far return." We know that which the earth takes of them (theft dead bodies), and with Us is a Book preserved (i.e., the Book of Decrees).Nay but they have denied the truth (this Quran) when it has come to them, so they are in a confused state (can not differentiate between right and wrong).
Have they not looked at the heaven above them, how We have made it and adorned it, and there are no rifts in it? And the earth! We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and have produced therein every kind of lovely growth (plants).An insight and a reminder for every slave turning to Allah i.e., the one who believes in Allah and performs deeds of
His obedience, and always begs His pardon). And We send down blessed water (rain) from the sky then we produce therewith gardens and grain (every kind of harvests that are reaped). And tall date palms, with ranged dusters; a provision for (Allah's) slaves. And We give life therewith to a dead land. Thus will be the resurrection (of the dead). Denied before them (i.e. these
pagans of Makka who denied you, 0 Muhammad) the people of Noah, and the dewllers of Bass, and the Thamud, and Ad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot,and the dwellers of the Wood, and the people of Tubba; everyone of them denied (their) Messengers, so My Threat
took effect.


There is instruction in their stories for people of intelligence.

The Originator of the universe tells us that :"There is instruction in their stories for people of intelligence. This is not a narration wich has been invented but confirmation of all that came before, a clarification of everything, and a guidance and a mercy for people who believe".

Chaptor 12 Verse 111

One of the great examples of wisdom in the life stories of prophets is that the verses do not merely describe events in the past, but also provide lessons for people of future generations while pointing to events that have yet to take place. In this sense, the life of Yusuf (Alaihe Salam) has several meanings. When we look at his life we see that Muslims have faced similar difficulties in all ages, that they have been subjected to unfounded allegations by people who do not share their religion. And that they have experienced a great many situations in wich they needed to exibit patience and resignation before the will of Allah. We are told that an early age Prophet Yusuf (A.S) was thrown down a well by his brothers and left to die, that he was later sold into slavery and spent long years in prison as a result of false accusations, and that he was tested with number of difficulties. So when believers look at his life they find a great many similarities with their own lives. It is the immutable design of Allah that believers over the ages have faced similar situations. In addition to this, after all the traps that had been set for him ; the way he was thrown into a well, slandered, unjustly imprisoned and left there for years, Allah eventually made Yusuf (A.S) head of the treasury. He gave him power, rank and wealth.

The unalterable pattern of Allah applies here, just as it does in every other field. Allah promises in several verses that the faithful will be delivered after all their tribulations :

"Allah has promised those of you who believe and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and will fimly establish for them their religion with wich He is pleased and give them in place of their fear, security. "they worship Me, not associating anything with Me". Any who disbelieve after that, such people are deviators."

(Surah An-Nur Verse 55)

I am publishing this article with special thanks to




If The Prophet Muhammad visited you,
Just for a day or two.
If he came unexpectedly,
I wonder what you'd do.

Oh, I know you'd give your nicest room,
To such an honored guest,
And all the food you'd serve to him,
Would be your very best,

And you would keep assuring him,
you're glad to have him there,
That serving him in your home,
Is a joy beyond compare.

BUT ...

When you see him coming,
Would you meet him at the door,
With arms outstretched in welcome,
To your visitor?

OR ...
Would you have to change your clothes
Before you let him in ?
Or hide some magazines
And put the Quran where they had been ?

Would you still watch R-rated movies,
On your TV set ?
Or would you rush to switch it off,
Before He gets upset ?

Would you turn off the radio,
And hope He hadn't heard ?
And wish you hadn't uttered,
That last loud, hasty word ?

Would you hide away your music,
And instead take Hadith books out ?
Could you let him walk right in,
or would you rush about ?

AND, I wonder ...
If the Prophet spent A day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing
The things you always do ?

Would you go right on saying
The things you always say ?
Would life for you continue
As it does from day to day ?

Would your family conversation
Keep up its usual pace ?
And would you find it hard each meal
To say a table grace ?

Would you keep up each every prayer
Without putting on a frown ?
And would you always jump up early
For prayers at dawn ?

Would you sing the songs you always sing
And read the books you read ?
And let him know the things on which
your mind and spirit feed ?

Would you take the prophet with you
Everywhere you plan to go ?
Or, would you, maybe, change your plans,
Just for a day or so ?

Would you be glad to have him meet
your very closest friends?
Or, would you hope they'd stay away
Until his visit ends?
Would you be glad to have him stay
Forever on and on?

OR ...
Would you sigh with great relief,
When he at last was gone ?

It might be interesting to know
The things that you would do
If the Prophet Muhammad, in person,
came to spend some time with you.

Spilt like the Red Sea

God he shed his grace on me
But often times I do not see
The love he has just for me
I worry and I wonder if I am being who it is I should be

I should have cried when I read the words to your gracious book
But I held back tears because I fear what lay in shedding water
To let go of life and somehow try to live on
All the things I have acquired somehow seem to call

Away from you a dream they sell
A dream so near to sin
To be like those who smile and frolic on this earth we live

But for God how could I ask for time to worship another
The dreams I hold so dear to me so distant from each other
Split like the red sea
The sand beneath my feet
I pray that I follow Moses humbly and not Pharaoh in prideful defeat

For love of God cannot combine with love of worldly desires
