The ATMs of this life.

I say unto my Kids that all what they get in their life through me is in fact their Rizq (livelihood) which Allah Azzawajal has destined for them. I am nothing but like an ATM (Teller Machine) for disposing their destined possessions which their Rabb bestows for them. Tomorrow it may be another ATM in their life.

The Rizq of each one of us predestined before we were even born.  It is like each one of us is given an ATM card with certain charged balances in it to live this life.  One has to only search for the nearest and the right ATM for its disposal. It may be a shop, a business, a company and so on which may be the sources of our Rizq. 

As we all know it is not the ATMs that funds us. ATM are only means for disposal and they are fed by powerful hands behind. Likewise, whatever Rizq is earned in your life through shop or salary, it is your Rabb providing you who is so powerful. He knows the needs of everyone and He feeds each one accordingly. Our greediness has no place before Him. He cares our need and not our greed. 

Now the currency that comes out of your ATM may be valuable as dollar or can be in bulk as Indian Rupees. This is based on your deeds. If your deeds are satisfactory to your Rabb, He shall provide Barakah in your life. Which may be less in count but more in value. Hence don’t look just for the count of what you have got. Look what it actually benefited you in life. Your life will not end without your card getting empty. So never worry for your Rizq.  Your duty is to search for the ATMs of your life and the earth of Allah is so wide. Respect but don’t worship the ATMs (sources of your Rizq), rather know your Rabb, Allâh, the All-Provider, Owner of Power, the Most Strong. Who can provide you through ATM or by any other means or without any means. He is the Source.

Paradise of the Quran.

My heart flies like a bird in the paradise of the Quran. Allahu Akbar. What a beauty. What a voice. What a Noor. Shaikh Abdul Basith Abdul Samad, May Allah shower His Mercy upon him. A great Qari who lived in our time, lucky and blessed are those who found life's beauty in the Quran."

Agree to disagree

A Daee ( One who reminds himself and others about Allah ) was talking to a group of warriors who were into fighting between the Muslims on sectarian differences.   To make them understand of their grievous sin of this mutual rivalry, the Daee wrote the Kalima   لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله  on a white paper and hung over a nearby tree. He then asked those holding guns to shoot at it. They all refused to shoot at the paper. They said, how can we shoot at this blessed Kalima  and we don’t dare to do this.  

Daee then asked them?. How dare then you shoot a brother Muslim who has uttered this Kalima and bear this Kalima in his heart!!!

Your disagreement with someone doesn’t give you the right to insult or harm him. One should agree to disagree.

قُلۡ فَلِلَّهِ ٱلۡحُجَّةُ ٱلۡبَـٰلِغَةُ‌ۖ فَلَوۡ شَآءَ لَهَدَٮٰكُمۡ أَجۡمَعِينَ
 Say: "With Allâh is the perfect proof and argument, had He so willed, He would indeed have guided you all." (Surah Al Anaam: Ayah 145)

You are your personality, not your position or status

A business man who arrived late to the airport missed his flight. He was upset about this and started arguing with the lady at the gate as she explained the gate just got closed and she cannot let him in. The man shouted at her “ Do you know who I am?, I am the business man, I am the Mr.XYZ of that ABC company and so on”. The lady went inside and told her manager  "There is a man at the gate who doesn’t know who he is ,please deal with him”

”Beauty is only Skin Deep”

Our body Skin is a thin layer of beauty which Allah has made that covers much of our internal filths. Likewise, he has made a skin over our faults and what people see is this beautified skin. Hence someone praising you doesn’t mean that’s only because of the goodness or greatness in you.  At large, it’s the greatness of Allah’s Sithr (covering). Hence say Alhamdulillah for the skin Allah has put over your faults. 
He covers the defects of His slaves (ستار العيوب). If this skin was removed, we may all have been exposed. We should not expose ourselves nor someone else by tearing off that skin that Allah has put on us.

وَلَا تَلۡمِزُوٓاْ أَنفُسَكُمۡ
And do not find fault with one another, (Surah Al Hujraat: Part of Ayah No.11)

Allah Azzawajal has the power to expose anyone who crosses much beyond the boundaries. That too is part of His mercy as it may be a reason for the sinner to repent and for others to be safe and cautious of such sins.

Once a thief who was caught was brought before Hazrath Umar (r.a). The thief made an excuse saying it was his first crime. For this Hazrath Umar (r.a) replied. You lied, Allah does not catch His slave at the first sin.

The OS (operating system) in man and animals.

Technically speaking, if you look at the animals around you, they are whom Allah created with a fixed operating system (OS) in them. Say for example Android Jelly beans release 5.0. There is no upgrade or update on the OS of an animal. They remain the same throughout their life and this applies to all the cats, dogs or other creations. They die as they were born. The activities they perform are predefined in their OS. For example, Swimming was a built-in option under accessibility settings which a cat or dog may switch on whenever necessary.

As for man, there is no built in OS. He is created as a blank, a fresh and highly potential device with minimum bootup systems. Each one then builds their own OS in their life time. The OS he builds is unique which none before or after can build similar. There is no copy and paste commands. A father cannot copy his very own OS he built in his lifetime for his beloved son. But man can do is imitate. Take the example from someone and build a similar OS. He can imitate the cleanest of OS that had the best of antivirus protection as of the Prophets or the OS with full of virus as of a devil.  He can build a virus which generations of OS may be infected or a good value which generations may benefit. This is only for man and each and every man is unique in all aspects in the creation of Allah. Both physically and spiritually. 

قُلۡ ڪُلٌّ۬ يَعۡمَلُ عَلَىٰ شَاكِلَتِهِۦ فَرَبُّكُمۡ أَعۡلَمُ بِمَنۡ هُوَ أَهۡدَىٰ سَبِيلاً۬
Say, “Everyone acts in his own style. So, your Lord knows best which one is better guided in his way.”  (Surah Al-Isra, Ayah No.84)

The washing machine of life.

The life of this world is like that of a washing machine. Wherein each individual cloth is put separately, who are then together for a while in their rotation but taken out as individual clothes after the wash. Likewise, we all came to this world as individual, though in the rotation of life we are together for some time. The position we are placed in, our surroundings and people around us are only a destiny-bestowed by Allah. What matters is how much cleaned each one is in their position and place. One may be as low as a pair of socks or as elevated as a head gear (topi) (in their position), but if they get cleaned they are all elevated to the same row over the clothes-line.

One is elevated to the ranks for Taqwa even if he is of the Habsha (Ethiopia) as Bilal (r.a).
One is thrown to the bottom of pit for Kufr even if he is of noble Quraish as Abu Jahl.

Then stained clothes are put aside and may be processed through bleaching. But permanently stained or totally dirty are thrown in the dustbin of eternity. May Allah save us all.

وَلَقَدۡ جِئۡتُمُونَا فُرَٲدَىٰ كَمَا خَلَقۡنَـٰكُمۡ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ۬ وَتَرَكۡتُم مَّا خَوَّلۡنَـٰكُمۡ وَرَآءَ ظُهُورِڪُمۡ‌ۖ
You have come to Us all ALONE, just as We had first created you, and you have left behind you what We had bestowed on you  (Surah Al-Anaam: Part of Ayah No. 94)
