"Allah’humma, Ya Muqallib Al-Quloob, Thabbit Qalbi ‘Alaa Deenik"

,O Turner of the hearts, make my heart firm upon Your Religion.” (via nouraliman)

storiesofthesahabah:

What do you feel every single time you hear the adhan?

Do you feel the urge to answer it by going for salah or are you among those who just hear it just like the chirping of the birds (it’s just normal)?

Did you know that adhan itself was a weapon of the Muslims against their enemies during the time of the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum?

YES, the adhan itself brought such fear in the hearts of the disbelievers! Let me share to you a story that happened during the battle of Al Qadisiyyah. 

_____

When Emperor Rustam of Persia reached An-Najaf near Al Qadisiyyah, he spent a spy to the Muslim camp. This spy was such a keen observant that he was thoroughly studying the movements of the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum. 

When he returned to Rustam, he told him about the character and all other information regarding the Muslim army. 

The army of Rustam reached Al Qadisiyyah and encamped between the River ‘Atiq and the fort. 

While taking a stroll, he heard the muadhdhin call for Fajr prayer and saw them preparing to stand up for it. 

Rustam immediately ordered his troops to mount their animals and be ready. When he was asked why, he said, "Can’t you see that the battle cry was shouted among the enemy and now they are getting ready?"

The same spy spoke up, "They are getting ready for prayers."

Rustam exclaimed in Persian and said, "I heard a sound in the morning, it must have been ‘Umar speaking to his dogs, teaching them some tricks. When they speak like this, be ready for battle."

When the muadhdhin called again for Duhur prayer, Rustam lamented, "It feels as if ‘Umar has eaten my liver!"

_____

May Allah forgive me but whenever I read this story I couldn’t stop myself but laugh at how scared Rustam was against the Muslim army. A fear of unknown, I must say, for Rustam couldn’t comprehend and understand such strength and from where do they get such strength. Allahu’akbar.

O Muslims, we should all realize our strength, that with Islam Allah Azza Wa Jall has promised us victory. Indeed, this story is such a great portrayal of this ayah:

"And never will Allah grant to the unbelievers a way (to triumph) over the believers." Qur’an 24:141

Allahu’akbar!

_____

Remember each time adhan is called, in every nation, the triumph of Islam is heard and every living thing attest to it! How blessed are those who answer this call and how blessed are those who recognize this blessing!

And we pray that Allah Azza Wa Jall makes us among those who regularly establish prayers.

Amin.

10 Reminders for anyone who wants to make Hijrah.

10. Do it for the sake of Allāh. Not for fame, not for nikah and not for fun.

9. Make a lot of du’aa so Allāh make it easy for you. It’s not crossing the road, it’s crossing the borders. It’s not easy as what you think. Ask Allāh to help you and to keep you safe.

8. I would like to advice you to do a medical check up before you come. List down the medicines you’re on. In sha Allāh you can get medicines here, we have a good health-care system. Get some vaccination too. I have been seriously ill for two weeks. Our body immune system differ from one place to another. Remember, prevention is better than cure.

7. Clothes are cheap. Bring only few clothes and I would like to advice you not to bring a big suit, bag-pack is better. I have seen sister cried because they had to bid farewell to their suit case because it’s too heavy. You can find shampoo and toiletries here, so bring only what’s important. If you’re on contact lenses, get your spectacles done. You hardly find lenses here. We have dentist here, so no worries!

6. Delete all pro-(you know what it is) materials from your gadgets. Please, don’t dig your own grave.

5. You don’t need much cash here, but if you’re planning to buy a car or a bike, you can bring extra cash. (You can buy me one too. Thank you!)

4. The food here is hmmmm… So eat as much as you can before you come here. But don’t eat excessively. Crossing the border is not easy. (You can bring some spices if you want! Can anyone bring biryani masala spice for me, pretty please?)

3. Everyone is aware of this issue now. Hasten your move before they close the BORDER!!! Please, its now or never.

2. Don’t discuss this matter to even your close friends or relatives. Keep it personal. I know a sister, who was betrayed by her own friend - she was reported to the police.

1. Don’t ever DISCUSS with anyone on social media even if the person is in Syria. Don’t tell them, don’t tell me. Every single message is being monitored. Please, please, please!

— Secrets of A Mujahid that we never knew —

I just would like to express something that I have kept for long in my tiny heart.

I’ve seen so many attacks on Mujahideen. Calling them by names, and giving them labels such as, monster, terrorist, heartless and so on.

Let me tell you another side of these ‘monsters’ that media hides from you.

These man, mostly are in their 20-s and unmarried. Most of them are just like us, they were once lived in Jahilliah life, that made them fed-up with this worldly life and wants to make a change.

These man, they are not from illiterate backgrounds. Many of them came from a wealthy family and lived like a king/prince back where they came from.

These man too has desires and wishes. They too wants to live in the comfortable zone with their loved ones, and to have a ‘normal’ life like everyone else.

But for the sake of Allāh they left everything behind. Family, wealth, youth, desires, likes and they have choose to be the shield of this Ummah, to answer the call and cries of their oppressed brothers and sisters.

You see, these man are sleeping in trenches, left their comfortable beds. Eating dry bread and drinking warm tea, perhaps they have forgotten how does their mon’s cook taste like.

You saw the fierce side of them. Have you wonder the other side of them that we hardly bother - the soft side?

Have you see or ever witness how they shed tears whenever they make a call to their loved ones telling how much they missed them?

Have you ever witness when these man are wounded and injured, all alone and sometimes there is no body is there to take care of them as their mother would do?

Have you ever witness when these man secretly kisses their family pictures, or call their names when the pain of longing strikes their heart?

Have you ever heard, when they repeatedly said, “mom” while they’re sleeping?

No you don’t. And sadly you’ll never. Because I was once like you, until I become one of them.

Confession : My life in the Islamic State (Part 1)

——

I still remember it was a cold night. I was freezing and exhausted. Tired of walking, I’m not sure how long I have to walk more. I was in a group of strangers, crossing the border. Everyone has their own story, everyone has their own pain to tell — but we all have the same goal that night. Hijrah fee Allāh Ta’ala.

I looked around. I saw an old woman who was about in her 60s. She was with her daughter which I believe was in her third trimester of pregnancy.

And I saw Umm Yusuf, with her two kids. Umm Zayd who was 7 months pregnant and Umm Salah. I’m not sure about the brothers, but I saw an old man, about on his late 70s — crossing the border with us. My tears were rolling on my cheek - not because I’m sad but I felt honored for Allāh has blessed me to be with them.

After a long walk, few brothers came from the opposite site and approached brothers from our group. As I was looking at them, I saw a car with the slogan of tawheed written on it. My heart skipped a beat!

Few minutes later, the brothers from our group chanted Takbeer and made sujud! They were hugging each others and I can hear everyone began to weep. I wasn’t sure what was going on. Umm Yusuf, came to me and said.

"Shams! Anti fi Shaam al 3an. Mabrouk!"

I didn’t understand what she said but I believed that I have made my way. All three of them - Umm Yusuf, Umm Zayd and Umm Salah came and hugged me in tears.

"Shams you have made it!" My heart shouted with joy.

I couldn’t believe it, I made it. It was an emotional night. We praised Allāh over and over again, congratulated each others.

On that night, three strangers became the most important peoples in my life.

Later, the brothers invited us to sit inside the car and they took us to makkar. Too much things were on my mind.. I closed my eyes and I thanked Allāh.
