Once a Muslim young man loved a Christian girl , they wanted to get married but her parents would not accept because he was a Muslim! It
was a big dilemma for them! But they both loved each other sincerely and thought nothing should separate them.
One day , the Muslim man got very ill and was dying, he was on the death bed. A friend of his was beside him , he told him: Say Shahadah, say
La Ilaha Illa llah Muhammadun Rasulullah , but the Muslim man didn’t say it, he cried and told his friend: I ’ m afraid that if I die as Muslim I will not find my beloved in the hereafter !! So I want to become Christian hopefully I will meet her in the hereafter!! And he became Christian !! He came out of Islam , he became a murtad! And right after he went out of Islam he died ! So he died as a non- Muslim.
The girl that he used to love came asking about her lover, she found his friend , she asked him :
Have you seen that person (her lover)? He sadly told her that he died ! But he did not tell her that he went out of Islam ( Apostated ). She was very
sad and cried , and said : I fear as a non Muslim I will not meet him in the hereafter , So I bear witness that there is no God except Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ! She embraced Islam, hopeful that she will meet him in paradise !
Later on she died , and died as a Muslim and her lover had died as a non -Muslim, she won Paradise and lost him, and he lost her and lost paradise and got hellfire .
Subhanallah, the wisdom behind this story is for one to remain steadfast onto Islam and keep the intention in the heart that I will live all my life on
Islam and to stay patient over the hardships and calamities, and Allah will reward tremendously . We ask Allah to keep us stead fast to Islam , wal Hamdulillah .
Imagine folks just imagine for a while that You’ve just
crossed the Siraat (bridge over Hell) and made it to the
other side . You are waiting for the doors of Jannah to
open. Finally they open to and you are in Awe..!!! Truly, this
place is as the Prophet described which “no eye has seen,
no ear has heard, and the mind of no man has conceived”,
[Bukhari Shareef]…… What is the ground made of? It
smells a little like saffron, Subhan’Allah! What are those
trees with huge fruits? Is that a river of honey? Dip your
finger in it, that can’t be honey! You’ve never had anything
like it in your life. You try it again and it tastes even better.
How is that possible? Ok, enough honey. Where is my
house? As you are being escorted to your home, you see
it’s not just a house. It’s a Mansion! Not even Bill Gates
had it this good, and you are told you earned it because
you donated $10 for that masjid…. If only you had donated
more!!! Well this mansion is enough. You’re eager to start
exploring. You enter from the front door with a texture
that feels pearly. Are the doors made of pearls?
Subhan’Allah! You walk in and there’s someone there. Is
that your spouse from the Dunya? But they look different.
They’re so beautiful, you’re mesmerized. You take their
hand and walk out and you see that person who wronged
you in the Dunya. Even though you forgave Him/her on
earth, whenever you saw them, you’d still get a bit
frustrated. But for some reason ,Allah SWT liked this act of
urs so much that he put u in here…and them too for
whatever good they did……… it’s ok now…. It’s all good….
Actually- you’re happy to see them. In fact, you can’t stop
smiling:)… This place is just Awesome. You feel so light
and airy. You feel as though nothing bad has ever
happened to you in your life. You have peace. It can’t get
better than this, right? Yes it can! Lo and Behold!! As you
walk outside your mansion, you see people rushing to go
to some place. They’re crowding around someone. Is that
RasulAllah?? Without realizing, tears stream down your
face, Is it Really Rasul’Allah! Is He the one i’m looking
at …Is He the one i’ve been reading about all my life…..
Yes ,there He is… And he is more beautiful than any of the
descriptions you’ve read. You embrace him. He smiles at
you, and then you invite him to dinner at your house. You
walk away, still in awe that you’ve just seen the final
Messenger of God, and… Is that Abu Bakr (RA)? With
`Umar (RA)! And over there is Fatima (RA), sitting with her
mother Khadija (RA)! And there’s Mariam (AS)! You
overhear a conversation and it’s someone asking Salaah
ad-Deen Ayyubi how it felt to liberate Jerusalem. And you
recognize an accent, it’s Malcolm X! Finally, it’s the
pinnacle of Jannah. BEING WITH ALLAH!!!. You actually get
to see Allah.U get to see that Allah u’ve been
praying ,crying and asking for everything …. The highest,
greatest most amazing pleasure that surpasses everything
we’ve just talked about. Seeing your Lord, Most High. ,Most
exalted ,Most beloved” (sheikh Suhaib webb)
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 ?????
Khaalid Ibn Safwan saw a group in the masjid of Basrah, and he said,
“What is this gathering? “
He was told,
“There is a woman who informs men about women who are available for marriage.“
He went to her and said, “ I want to marry a woman. “
She said, “ Describe her to me. “
So he described her saying, “I want her to be a virgin
who is wise like a married woman, or a married
woman who is innocent like a virgin; she should be
sweet when she is near, splendid when she is at a
distance, she should have lived a life of luxury and
then became afflicted with poverty – so she has the
manners of the rich and the humility of the poor.
When we gather wealth, we should be as the people
of the world, and when we become poor, we should
be as the people of the hereafter. “
She said, “ I know of such a woman for you. “
He said, “And where is she? “
She replied, “In Paradise! So work hard to achieve

Dear Sisters!!!! Do you know this!!
There is a whole Surah in Qur’an with your name (Suratul Nisaa (women))
The first martyr in Islam was a woman (Sumaya (RA))
The first person who believed in the prophecies of Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a woman
The last recommendation prophet Muhammad gave to his nation before he died was to treat you well (“Prayer, prayer, and what your right hand possesses.)
You are the half of the society, and you raise the other half, how high your status is!
To all men : Marrying a Woman completes half your faith Jannah (heaven) lies under the feet of your mother ( a woman)
And because you are so precious, Islam honored you with Hijab for preserving your chastity and purity.
You are not just a woman you are very special you are a gem, you are a Muslimah!
“Those the angels take in a virtuous state. They say,
‘Peace be upon you! Enter the Garden for what you
did.’ (Surat an-Nahl, 32)
And those who guard against evil of their Lord will be
driven to the Garden in companies and when they arrive
there, finding its gates open, its custodians will say to
them, ‘Peace be upon you! You have done well so enter it
timelessly, for ever.’ (Surat az-Zumar, 73)
Gardens of Eden which they will enter, and all of their
parents, wives and children who were righteous. Angels
will enter in to welcome them from every gate: ‘Peace be
upon you because of your steadfastness! How wonderful
is the Ultimate Abode!’ (Surat ar-Rad, 23-24)
THE BEST SUPPLICATION FOR SEEKING FORGIVENESS
Shaddad bin Aus ?
(rta) said:The Prophet(saw) said,”The best supplication for
seeking forgiveness (Syed ul Istighfar) is to say:
‘Allaahumma Anta Rabbi,Laa Ilaaha Illaa Anta,Khalaqtani Wa Ana ‘Abduka,Wa Ana ‘Alaa Ahdika Wa Wa’dika MastaTho’tun,A’uudhubika Min Sharri Maa

(O Allaah!You are my Rabb.There is no true God except
You.You have created me,and i am Your slave,and i hold to
Your Covenant as far as i can.I seek refuge in You from the
evil of what i have done.I acknowledge the favours that You
have bestowed upon me,and i confess my sins.Pardon
me,for none but You has the power to pardon).’He who
supplicates in these terms during the day with firm belief
in it and dies on the same day(before the evening),he will
be one of the dwellers of Jannah; and if anyone supplicates
in these terms during the night with firm belief in it and
dies before the morning ,he will be one of the dwellers of
