Surah Of The Day

Al-Baqara : 87

And We did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure spirit. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed.

Today surah of the day

Al-Kahf : 50

And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange. Surah kahf verse 50.

Story :The Triple Filter Test.

During the golden Abbasid period, one of the
scholars in Baghdad, the capital of Muslim caliphate at
that time, was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem.

One day an acquaintance met the great scholar and said,
“Do you know what I just heard about your friend?”

“Hold on a minute,” the scholar replied. “Before telling
me anything I’d like you to pass a little test. It’s called
the Triple Filter Test.”

“Triple filter?”

“That’s right,” the scholar continued. “Before you talk to
me about my friend it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say. That’s why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?”

“No,” the man said, “actually I just heard about it and..”

“All right,” said the scholar. “So you don’t really know if
it’s true or not. Now let’s try the second filter, the filter of goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend
something good?”

“No, on the contrary…”

“So,” the scholar continued, “you want to tell me
something bad about him, but you’re not certain it’s
true. You may still pass the test though, because there’s
one filter left: the filter of usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?”

“No, not really.”

“Well,” concluded the scholar, “if what you want to tell
me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it
to me at all?”. END.

“O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh
at others: It may be that the (latter) are better than the
(former)” ……….Hujurat 49.12

“And spy not on each other behind their backs…” Hujurat 49.13.

Praise be to Allah that we are Muslims. Hope the lessons have been learnt?

Secrets of Surah Al-Kahf

   Ever wondered why Prophet Muhammad (salallahu alaihe wassalam) asked us to recite Surat Al-Kahf every Friday?

Let’s find out today in sha Allah…

‘Whoever reads Surah al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, a light will shine for him from beneath his feet to the clouds of
the sky, which will shine for him on the Day of Resurrection,
and he will be forgiven (his sins) between the two Fridays.’
-Hadith(al-Targ heeb wa’l-Tarheeb,1/ 298)

Four lessons from Surah Al-Kahf.

1)Trial of Faith (people of the cave,Ashabul Kahfi)
2)Trial of Wealth (stories of 2 men and the 2 gardens)
3)Trial of Knowledge(Prophet Musa & al-khidr)
4)Trial of Power (Zulqarnai n with Ya’jujMa’juj)

In the middle of these 4 stories in surah al-kahf, IBLIS is the one who stirs these trials —–(Q18:50)

*So how do we survive these trials?

(solutions can be found in surah al-kahf too)

1)Sincerity(Q18:110)

2)Calling to Allah(Q18:27)

3)Remembering the Hereafter (Q18:47 -49)

4)Good companionship(Q18:28)

5)Knowing the truth abt this world(Q18:45)

6)Humbleness(Q18:69)

What Do you think if?

If a child tells you that I have a lot of money, you will guess that he has about $100, based upon his definition and ability.

If a CEO of a major company tells you that he has alot of money for you, you will guess that he has millions of dollars based upon his status and ability.

If a King tells you he has a huge amount of money for you, you will guess it to be in the billions based upon his status and ability

What do you think if Allah, the King of Kings, tells you about Jannah that “I have prepared for my servant that which no eyes has ever seen, no ears has ever heard of and no mind has ever pondered over?”what do u think then ?????

Unlimited Blessings!

Once a man was walking and he read this written on a wall:

Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem
Qul Huw-Allahu Ahad
Allah-us-Samad
Lam yalid wal lam yulad
Wa lam yakul lahu kufuwan ahad

So he sat and read it, while he was reading it a man was watching him and Came to him and said ‘Do you know that you have got at least 470 hasana’s(Blessings) just for reading this!
The person who wrote this on the wall also got 470 blessings.
Even I got 470 blessings just for posting it here for you,
Even you got  470 blessings for reading this
So please share, reblog it and let more people get 470 blessings.

Don’t forget, each time someone reads this and gets blessings so do you. 

When there is only a single star left in the sky.
At that very moment, the path of forgiveness will close.
The writing in the Quran will vanish.
The sun will lower itself with the earth.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, ‘Who ever delivers this news to someone else, I will on the Day of Judgment make for him a place in Jannat.
Please pass this to every Muslim you know.

Short story: Struggle out of your cocoon.

 

image

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the
butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it

image

seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.
The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.
The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.

Neither happened!

Infact, the butterfly spent the
rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.
What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and
the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were Allah’s way of
forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If Allah allowed us to go through our
lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us.

We would not be as strong as what we could have been.

We could never “fly”!
