    If Allah assists you, then there is none that can overcome you, and if He forsakes you, who is there then that can assist you after Him? And on Allah should the believers rely.

    As-salamunalaikum, 
    I'm trying to be more religious/spiritual this Ramadan. With that, I'm developing some new habits. Improvimy myself overall!

    Jannat786 reacted to kamyar in Ramadan Resolutions   
    I am trying to control what is called khotorat (what comes into one's mind and heart). For example, avoiding dhan (suspicion), considering others better than myself, justifying others' actions as much as possible etc.
    I think we underestimate these things and don't know what blessings we acheive if clarifying our hearts and minds from sheitani khotorat.

    Assalamalykum,
    With Ramadan right around the corner I thought it’d be a good idea if we could make a resolution this Ramadan to improve ourselves spiritually.
    Every Ramadan I try to either take up a good habit or drop a bad habit I have, not just for the 30 days but I make a promise to make that change permanent as a gift to my own soul.
    It could be anything, you could make a resolution to read one page of Quran per day everyday or you could stop listening to music or you could even make a resolution to tweak your mentality a bit and for example not think negatively about others or to place more trust in Allah in order to reduce stress. 
    Begin with something small and manageable that you really believe you can accomplish and InshAllah with the proper intention Allah will help you make that change and some. 
    So comment on what you’d like to change and InshAllah it’ll inspire others and give them ideas as well. 
    All the best and may you all have a blessed Ramadan :)

    There’s this app called “Ask Those Who Know” ATWK, you can get the app and it’ll connect you with many scholars. You can select any scholar and send them a message and they usually respond within a couple of days.

    I’ve used that app a couple of times and I’ve got a response within a week and quite detailed responses. You can select which scholar you want to send your question to and if they feel like your question can be answered by another scholar with better expertise then they’ll redirect your question to another scholar. You can give it a go, I’ve had good experience with it.

    Jannat786 got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in feeling distant from religion   
    I’m going through the same thing right now. The best thing you can do is take baby steps. If you try to immediately get back to how you were before you’ll get really disappointed and depressed. 
    Try doing one small thing a day, just for 5 mins listen to some Qur'an or watch an Islamic video on YouTube or even listen to a nasheed. Just know that the fact that you’re feeling upset about being away from God and that you want to get close to Him and the religion is in itself a sign that God wants you to come back and that you’re close enough to God to miss worshipping Him. Know that Allah loves you and even if you take one small step towards Allah He will take 10 steps towards you. 
    Take it easy and take those baby steps and don’t beat yourself up if you’re not doing as much as you were before. We all have ups and downs. Allah loves you and won’t let your efforts go to waste no matter how small they may be.

  11. My Prayers
    Jannat786 got a reaction from starlight in How do I regain patience and hope?   
    Assalamalykum,
    I don’t know if it’s possible that Allah can dislike a person since we’ve been told that Allah loves us even more than our mothers but recently I read somewhere that:

    Hazrat Ibrahīm ((عليه السلام).) said, “O worshipper! when Allah holds a creature dear He delays the acceptance of his prayers so that he may continue to plead and supplicate Him. On the other hand when He dislikes a person He answers his prayers immediately or creates hopelessness in his heart so that he would stop praying.”
    And I feel like the latter is happening with me. I’ve become so hopeless that I start wondering what’s the point of praying when my prayers are never answered. I hate feeling this way because I feel like Allah dislikes me that’s why I have this feeling in my heart and I’d honestly rather have none of my prayers answered but I can’t bear the thought of Allah disliking me. Yet it’s a vicious cycle, I pray, none of my prayers get accepted and I feel like He’s not even listening. For the past 2-3 years my life has been going downhill and I’ve taken everything positively up till now, I’ve said Alhamdulillah every time something bad happened or a prayer went unanswered just telling myself that Allah knows best and maybe this is better for me but I’m so so tired now. I can’t keep up anymore and I’ve run out of positivity and patience. I used to pray Namaz e Shab almost every day and nowadays I can’t even find the will to wake up for Fajr. I know that at the end of your patience Allah brings relief and I’m really burnt out now but there’s no end in sight. 
    I’ve tried every amaal, namaaz, dua, you name it. I’ve cried and cried and asked for forgiveness for years now yet I feel helpless. 
    I was clinging on to the fact that I was patient and was able to see the silver lining in everything but even that’s gone now and I just pray nowadays that Allah forgives all my sins and takes my life because I really can’t take this constant helplessness and worsening of my life. 
    If any of this suggests that Allah is angry with me or dislikes me then please please help me and tell me how I can change that, I just don’t  want to lose patience and hope. 
  12. Completely Agree

    Dear sister, why do you expect that specific prayers of yours must be answered in a specific way and timeline as proof that Allah has answered you or loves you? Is this then not expectation based on a sense of entitlement to certain favours? Was one who was born with defective limbs less deserving of the mercy of Allah? Is one who goes through a terrible phase in their life e.g loss of wealth, children, honour etc necessarily being punished by Allah? 
    If we claim to be patient, then we must be patient. Period. Not patient for 8 months now give me what I want already.
    Seek solace and lessons in the lives and words of the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام).
    From dua Abu Hamza Thumali:
    O my Master, perhaps You have pushed me away from Your door!
    سَيِّدِي لَعَلَّكَ عَنْ بَابِكَ طَرَدْتَنِي
    And You have dismissed me from Your service!
    وَعَنْ خِدْمَتِكَ نَحَّيْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have noticed that I belittled the duties that You have made incumbent upon me, and You thus set me aside!
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَأَيْتَنِي مُسْتَخِفّاً بِحَقِّكَ فَأَقْصَيْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have seen me turning away from You and thus You have turned away from me
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَأَيْتَنِي مُعْرِضاً عَنْكَ فَقَلَيْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have found me in the manner of the liars and thus You have rejected me
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ وَجَدْتَنِي فِي مَقَامِ الْكَاذِبِينَ فَرَفَضْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have observed me showing no gratitude for Your graces and thus You have deprived me of them
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَأَيْتَنِي غَيْرَ شَاكِرٍ لِنَعْمَائِكَ فَحَرَمْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have not found me in the sessions of the scholars and thus You have let me down
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ فَقَدْتَنِي مِنْ مَجَالِسِ الْعُلَمَاءِ فَخَذَلْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have seen me among the inattentive ones and thus You have made me despair of Your mercy
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَأَيْتَنِي فِي الْغَافِلِينَ فَمِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ آيَسْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have found me fond of the sessions of the wrongdoers and thus You have referred me to them
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَأَيْتَنِي آلِفَ مَجَالِسِ الْبَطَّالِينَ فَبَيْنِي وَبَيْنَهُمْ خَلَّيْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have not willed to hear my prayers and thus You have kept me away from You
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ لَمْ تُحِبَّ أَنْ تَسْمَعَ دُعَائِي فَبَاعَدْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have punished me for my offenses and sins
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ بِجُرْمِي وَجَرِيرَتِي كَافَيْتَنِي
    Or, perhaps, You have penalized me for my shamelessness
    أَوْ لَعَلَّكَ بِقِلَّةِ حَيَائِي مِنْكَ جَازَيْتَنِي
    If You forgive me, O Lord, then You have occasionally forgiven the sinners like me
    فَإنْ عَفَوْتَ يَا رَبِّ فَطَالَمَا عَفَوْتَ عَنِ الْمُذْنِبِينَ قَبْلِي
    Because Your compassion, O my Lord, is too great to be compared to the punishment of the negligent
  13. Thanks

    Wa alaykum salaam,
    What guarantee do you have that your prayers are not being answered? Look at it this way, perhaps once you prayed to be protected from all harm and anything that would you take you away from Allah. Now currently you pray for thing x. However, your initial prayer was answered by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and the thing x you are praying for will cause you the harm you had sought protection against. 
    It is one of our duties/obligations about Allah to have husn dhan about His (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) actions towards us. This is one of the core elements of our relationship with Him, so we should see our duas and prayers as a means of communicating our limited hopes based on our limited knowledge about this world and the hereafter, but have hope and husn dhan about Him responding to our prayers as per His unlimited knowledge and unlimited mercy towards us.
    May Allah grant you that which will bring you eternal happiness, and make you content and pleased with His (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will.

    Jannat786 reacted to Lilly14 in What are the signs of a toxic relationship?   
    If you are having trouble leaving please join a local women's support group for abused women or join a support group for abused women on social media, there's lots of private groups so no one can see you're in them if that's what you worry about. Emotional abusers know exactly just what to say so that you will feel like a villain for wanting to leave their abuse. That's why it might be helpful to have people around you who have been in your shoes help you escape his manipulation.
    Id say, if you can safety and secretly collect any evidence that you can that proves he yells/is verbally and emotionally abusive so you have proof if anyone is skeptical or points a finger at you instead. Like maybe put a password on your phone and let it record an argument. 
    I'm praying everything goes well for you inshaAllah. 
    My best friend has been from what started as only an emotionally abusive relationship, then it progressed to an also physically abusive relationship, with her cousin. Then in April, he chocked her until she passed out. She almost died! And when she wanted to leave him, he sent nude pics of her to their whole extended family, parents, grandparents, to punish her. Her family took her car so she can't meet him, tried to take her to support groups to heal, which she rejects. She still to this day talks to him on the phone secretly, and probably meets him too. I stopped talking to her until she leaves him because she vented the horrific abuse to me almost daily and it was too much to bear since she never broke things off with him for more than a week. 
    My point is get out before you lose your life, your dignity, your self, your mental health, and your loved ones. You can actually develop PTSD, depression, and anxiety from physical or emotional abuse. 
  24. Thanks
    Jannat786 reacted to Moalfas in What are the signs of a toxic relationship?   
    @Jannat786
    What you describe of the behaviour that your fiancé displays are MAJOR red flags. 
    I do not mean to scare you but if at 6 months and already there is shouting, verbal abuse and 'outbursts', it will very likely morph into physical violence. 
    I tell you out of experience: run a mile the other direction! 
    A broken engagement is way better than a broken marriage and a life of abuse and domestic violence. Save yourself the pain and hurt.
    It's not your responsibility to help him get better. He ought to control his temper and sort his issues first and only then seek a partner. Not manipulate his partner and guilt trip her over his own issues. 
    Again, I do not mean to scare you, but what you describe are very serious signs of an abusive partner. 
    Walk away.
