Posted in islam by lailanasheeba on September 21, 2019

Abu Huraira reported that he met the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him)on one of the paths leading to Medina in a state of (sexual) defilement and he slipped away and took a bath. The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) searched for him and when he came, he said to him: 0 Abu Huraira, where were you? He said: Messenger of Allah, you met when I was (sexually) defiled and I did not like to sit in your company before taking a bath. Upon this the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Hallowed be Allah, verily a believer is never defiled.

‘A’isha the wife of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) reported. A person asked the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) about one who has sexual intercourse with his wife and parts away (without orgasm) whether bathing is obligatory for him. ‘A’isha was sitting by him. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: I and she (the Mother of the Faithful) do it and then take a bath.

A’isha, the wife of the Apostle (may peace be upon him), said: Umm Habiba b. Jahsh who was the spouse of Abd al- Rahman b. Auf made a complaint to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) about blood (which flows beyond the menstrual period). He said to her: Remain away (from prayer) equal (to the length of time) that your menstruation holds you back. After this, bathe yourself. And she washed herself before every prayer.

Umm Salama reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, I am a woman who has closely plaited hair on my head; should I undo it for taking a bath, because of sexual intercourse? He (the Holy Prophet) said: No, it is enough for you to throw three handfuls of water on your head and then pour water over yourself, and you shall be purified.

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

AND ALLAH KNOWS BEST

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.

Dr Saleh as Saleh – The Ummah loses another good one

I received  news of the death of a great man – Dr Saleh as Saleh. I never met him nor  know how he looked.  But I do know that he was a good man placed here on earth to convey the message of Allah to others.  A scholarly man placed here on earth for a short time to convey the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad(sa).  A loved man who will be missed by many.

The Prophet(sa) once said that a person’s outcome can be determined by the amount of people who praise him when he leaves this earth.  Well  many now praise Dr saleh As Saleh.  Many now have nothing but good to say of Dr saleh As Saleh. 

Peace be Upon you, my beloved brother in islam.  May your body sleep as your soul takes the form of a green bird in paradise.  May Allah forgive all your sins and place you near the prophet whose sunnah you died trying to preserve…ameen ameen ameen!
