Lessons Learned from the Companions – Uthman Session 5

Posted in islam by lailanasheeba on November 18, 2018

The representatives of the contingent from Egypt waited on Ali, and offered him the caliphate in succession to Uthman. Ali turned down their offer. The representatives of the contingent from Kufa waited on Zubair, while the representatives of the contingent from Basra waited on Talha, and offered them their allegiance as the next Caliph. These offers were turned down. This move on the part of the rebels neutralized the bulk of public opinion in Madina. Madina could no longer offer a united front; it became a divided house

Lessons Learned from the Companions -Uthman Session 4

Posted in islam by lailanasheeba on November 17, 2018

Uthman listened patiently to the talk of Ali and then said:

“Ali, I am grateful to you for having come and talked to me. I have always looked to you as my best support. You are a keen judge of men and matters, and you are known for your perception of the truth. I had expected that in this crisis you would discern the truth, and take measures to stop the false propaganda that is poisoning the atmosphere. Instead you have talked in the same vein as the malcontents. You have insinuated that as an Imam I had been cruel and tyrannical and that the punishment therefor is hell. This is uncharitable on your part. You have been- apparently led away by the false propaganda that is being carried by some persons who have their own axe-to grind.

Leassons Learned from the Companions – Uthman Session 3

Currency was given to many other fictitious stories of the so-called waywardness of Uthman and his government. No body could tell from where such stories emanated, but nevertheless they became the common talk of the people, and in the absence of any refutation, the people generally came to believe in the rumors.

Such as what happens today. When people spread their slanderous comments against a righteous person, oftentimes if the comments are not addressed the people take them to be true.

The position became embarrassing and some of the companions suggested to Uthman that reliable agents should be sent to various provinces to investigate the matter and report about the truth of such rumors.

Lessons learned from the Companions – Uthman Session 2

Despite Aamir being vindicated of the lies made against him by Uthman, He did not return the favor. He felt that Uthman should have never investigated him and became bitter towards him. Aamir insisted that charges or no charges, he had forfeited the right to rule, and should step down of his own free will or he would be removed by force. That was pure sedition on the part of ‘Aamir and hot words were exchanged between the two, but to show how just Uthman was, all he did was ban the return of Aamir to Kufa, the place that seeded him with these bad thoughts, and instead sent him back to Syria and told Muawaiyah to care for him and keep an eye on him

Such is the nature of those who are righteous. Despite the disrespect and lies of others, the Righteous try to remain just and upright hoping that Allah will mend the broken fences and guide the rebellious ones back to the truth

Again, this wisdom would later lead to the downfall of Uthman

Lessons Learned from the Companions – Uthman Session 1

As it is today, there seems to be for every fitnah encountered by the Muslims the Jews were behind it. The fitnah that occurred with the companions began during the Caliphate of Uthman with a man named Ibn Saba who was responsible for beginning a religious movement against Islam. It aimed at the subversion of Islam by creating doubts among the Muslims with regard to certain matters of their belief. So thus, from the cruel designs of one Jewish man, the whole muslim nation was in sedition. Not from anything that could be proven to be true of Uthman, but rumors and allegations based on people who had it out for him simply because he did not support some wrong or desires of theirs.

Such is the same for many of us today . When faced with fitnah, we look back to how it was in the beginning to try to figure what did we do wrong to bring this upon ourselves. And often times we come up empty handed. Such was the case for Uthman.

Lessons Learned from the Companions – We were Created to Make Mistakes!

Posted in islam by lailanasheeba on November 8, 2018

O Adam do not be sad as I told you: come out from the Paradise, which I created for you and your descendants. O Adam you used to come to Me like a king enters to another king. Today you enter like a servant when he comes to his king. O Adam do not be discontent because of your slip, which caused you to err, for you are a human that commits sins. “And it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you.”

Lecture details how we can learn from Adam the first man created that we were created to make mistakes. To not make mistakes is to not be human. This is important to understand before delving into the differences that emerged among the companions.

The Believer is Titanium!

In class today the question came up as to whether Allah sends Punishment to the believer as a means of erasing his sins. The answer is NO. Allah will not erase your sins unless you repent from them. As the Prophet (sa) said: “Repentance wipes away what came before it..” [Muslim]

Instead Allah sends Hardships to the Believer as a means of teaching him patience and making him a stronger better Muslim. As the Prophet(sa) said:

“Great reward comes with great trials. When Allah loves a people, He tests them, and whoever accepts it attains His pleasure, whereas whoever shows discontent with it incurs His wrath. [Tirmidhi]

Also: “Nothing befalls a believer, a (prick of a) thorn or more than that, but Allah will raise him one degree in status thereby, or erase a bad deed. [Bukhari]

Also: “How wonderful is the affair of the believer, for his affairs are all good, and this applies to no one but the believer. If something good happens to him, he is thankful for it and that is good for him. If something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience and that is good for him.” [Muslim]

The words to the poem and song Titanium summarizes how hardships should impact the Believing Muslim. Even our Prophet (sa) enjoyed some poetry. Read and ponder the meaning. Also join my classes everyday to help strengthen not only your knowledge and understanding of Islam but your faith as well!

Titanium
David Guetta

You shout it out
But I can’t hear a word you say
I’m talking loud not saying much
I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I’m bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium

Cut me down
But it’s you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I’m talking loud not saying much

I’m bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium

Stone-hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, those bulletproof guns

You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
I am titanium

This is my personal blog. Please do not join here to challenge or argue with me. To do so will only result in my banning you from here. If you have comments that are challenging that you would like to share – be woman enough to join me LIVE on my website and present your comment. I say woman enough because most negative comments come from women who suffer from jealousy and envy so shaytaan moves them to leave smart aleck comments. These women need to be reminded that this is one of the reasons why hell will be filled with women.

If you are bold enough to come to me live, I warn you to come with daleel from Quran or sunnah to support what you have to say – not some fatwa – because I am known for making people wear egg on their face.

Also for those ignorant to ask “What scholar do I follow” the answer is the same scholar the companions followed, and the 4 imams, and Ibn Taymia, and Ibn Qayyim, and Abdul Wahhab, and Sheikh Albani, and Ibn Uthaymeen and Sheikh Bin Baaz – and his name is “Muhammad Ibn Abdullah. If that is not good enough for you then you need to ask yourself – ARE YOU A MUSLIM!

For those who would like to know a little more about me, this is all you need to know:

Laila Nasheeba is the founder and Managing Director of AlQuran Wa Sunnah Islamic Site of Learning – an online Islamic Institute- wherein she devotes her time to teaching and calling the Muslims back to the Quran and Authentic Sunnah.

Laila Nasheeba is a graduate of Cleveland State University where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Ancient Civilizations. She is also a certified Para-Legal.

Cyberspace – An internet Love Jungle Even for Muslims so Beware!

Innal Humdulaillah was salah wa salama lah wa rasululah… Ramadan is the best month of the year, especially for the Daiyee such as myself.  Why?  because this is our chance to reach out to those Muslims who we do not see much and try to bring them into the circle of believers.. even here on the net.  This ramadan has been very fruitful for me.  So many new Muslims joining the website eager to learn their religion.  Eager to learn the truth in accordance to the Quran and the Authentic Sunnah.  With the help of Allah; I have captured their hearts and increased their faith..but the question is… can this be maintained even after ramadan?

Subhanallah this ummah is so fragile.  Muslim women from all over the world searching for paradise, and searching for a man to lead them there.  So many young vulnerable Muslim converts, naive to the fact that cyberspace is filled with Muslim men who hide behind islam and a computer; and lay in wait to prey upon new converts!  The sad reality is that most of these vultures are of Arabic descent and use that as a means of luring the women in.

“Islam was revealed to the arab and I am arab and I speak the language of the Quran,”  they say.  “Come my sister and I will teach you islam.”

These fragile women with hearts longing for paradise, eagerly accept the invitation… and from there; paradise becomes a distant dream, as the men fill them with promises of love, romance and worldly passions.  So many of these women end up used, hurt and duped by these vultures… many to the point of apostation! I thank Allah that he has sent some of these such women to my website for me to look over and steer right… and I have a few words for the vultures of cyberspace:

“FEAR ALLAH DUDE AND WATCH YOUR BACK BECAUSE THERE IS A FEMALE DAIYEE  IN TOWN AND HER NAME IS LAILA NASHEEBA.  MESS WITH MY NEWBIE MUSLIMAH’S.. DARE TO TAKE AWAY THEIR DREAMS OF PARADISE.. AND I GIVE YOU MY WORD YOU WILL ANSWER TO ALLAH!”

Something to think about as we surf the net…

Is a Convert Less?

Subhanallah. I just arrived back from attending a conferece in Houston Texas where I spoke about Passionate Love. The community I visited is a Nigerian community – Masjidul Muslimeen. I must say they are the nicest Muslims I have met in a very long time. They were very welcoming and gracious and seemed to really enjoy my lecture. There was one thing though that amazed me….

There was one sister there at the conference whom I noticed that whenever I spoke she felt the need to take over and add to it. After I had given my lecture she went so far as to take over my Q&A session and answer the questions that were really posed to me. Mind you she did not do this to the other guest speakers – just me. I brushed it off and figured oh well, I answer questions all day long every day so I needed the break. But others did not like it at all.

As I was leaving for the night a few sisters approached me and apologized for the woman’s behavior and one of them asked me her question again – so as to hear MY answer. After I answered her she hugged me, smiled and cried. “I love you Laila Nasheeba,” she said. “You have changed my life so much in so many ways and you do not even know it.”

She went on to tell me how she listens to my lectures on the internet daily. I hugged her back and told her I loved her too and encouraged her to join our website so as she can stay in touch with me. As I then turned to leave, one of my students approached me and introduced me to one of her friends.

“Teacher, this is my friend,” she said. “She really enjoyed your lecture and was shocked that she did because she thought you were a “revert” ”

I was taken aback. “What made her think I was a “convert” ?” I asked, although even if I had been what was wrong with that?

Come to find out, just because I speak like a strong african American – this made her and others too think I am a convert – and because of that they felt I would not have much to tell them about islam. I then began to piece together – this must have been the other woman’s problem too. The reason she felt the need to answer my questions and all is because she too most likely figured me to be a “convert”.

Subhanallah. I explained to my student that some of the most great Islamic speakers today are converts – Khalid Yasin, Seraj Wahhaj, Abdul Hakim Quick – are all CONVERTS and african American. I am neither, but even if I were, what is it that makes others think that I would not have anything to share or say about islam? 

Whatever the reason, people with this ideology are just stopping themselves from acheiving knowledge that could be of so much benefit to them.  My student agreed.

I chalk this up as another reason as to why so many Muslims today are lost, and pray that Allah will open such Muslims hearts to the truth – as told by whomever regardless of race, linguistics or conversion.
