When you give Allah, give Him the BEST (أحسن)


When you give Allah, give Him the BEST (أحسن)

He didn’t ask you for more (أكثر)

He didn’t ask you for perfect (أكمل)

He didn’t ask you for the most virtues. (أفضل)

But He wants to see what the BEST we can offer Him. It’s like a father giving son couple of chocolates and father asking the son to give him one from it. Father wanted to test the son how much he loves him, How much of gratitude son has. Not because father wanted any chocolates!

Everything in life is given to us from Allah. He gave us all what we need for life, gave again and again and keeps giving in abundance every day and always. He wants to see who returns Him in Best of what He has given us.

So give Allah of your quality and what’s best and not just quantities.

He gave you inward and outward wellness. Thank Him in five time prayers for what He gave and perform your best. When you pray, give Him your quality time free from all other chores of life, even it is for a while.

He gave you much of wealth and provisions. Give Him what’s best to those of the poor and the needy. When you give, give the best, even if the count is less.


Don’t underestimate Allah. He don’t want your garbage. He is not in need of anything. All is for a TEST because He wants to give you more in this world and the eternal life to come. So when you give, don’t count or boast of how much you gave. Rather have the gratitude towards Him for accepting more from you. Let what you give of anything to Him be like your salary, a secret between you and your boss. If you are flashing it, you are just not a man. There is a misunderstanding!

Hence offer what’s best in your hands to please Him alone and know that you are offering to the One Who already has given you more and who alone can reward you with more.

Allah knows best, May Allah give us Thaufeeq.

الَّذِي خَلَقَ الْمَوْتَ وَالْحَيَاةَ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلاً وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْغَفُورُ

Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is BEST in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving (Surah Al Mulk: Verse 2)

The days in Jeddah are rolling one over the other. It is like a book with one page printed on multiple pages. The same chapter repeating every day. Days start with normal sunrise and ends with sunset. Nothing is special except one has the peaceful life and self freedom without disturbing others. But things differ sometimes when I visit to Makah which is just an hour drive from here. The Masjidul Haram and the Ka’ba which is a black cubical structure located at the center of the grand Mosque is the core of it. Each time one sees it, send chills to the heart and veins even if one has seen it thousands of time. Something that makes your heart feels by looking at which is never the very same that you see in a pictures or in TVs. Yesterday I was sitting in the Mataf or the central open area of Masjidul Haram, there is nothing more beautiful than spending sometimes there and watching the circling of the Ka’ba going on peacefully all the time. Different nationals and different colors. All c

The Ansar Masjid, Kasaragod

Photos remind not only about a place but also the time. Especially photo of a place where once you had been living for a span of time and left that place for some reason. Looking at such photo is joyous and heart soothing. That would increase in folds if that place were so dearer to you. It will take yourself spiritually to that place and remind you of your old days. Your hearts clasps it's feathers and flies back through the garden of it's memories. I should say, How can the joy of one's inner self be portrayed or explained to someone else. Can we share it, or is it between our heart and the Creator of it. Mostly tongs fails to express what one feels actually and the pens fails to write. Beauty is what our heart pictures as beautiful to us. A poor man's hut is as beautiful to his eyes as the mighty palace of a king in his eyes. I loved the beauty of nature. To think about is what a true believer should do always. How beautiful is life when we see positive in a

Safwan my Boy!

Ismail Eliat Safwan Eliat If you remember your childhood of city life at Jeddah, I remember mine of my village in southern India. You were born in a well setup Hospital while I was born at the very village home of my mom where there were no electricity. You grew seeing Tom and Jerry and Merry cartoons, I grew listening to bedtime stories of my grandmas. Your plays were with toys and computer games, my toys were the coconut leaves and paper boats. You went to school in air-conditioned buses, I went to my village school walking through the paddy fields. You grew up under well-lit lamps of all types, I grew up with smells of kerosene lamps and half lit bulbs. Your modern days are my later world of my life's journey. Whereas my past has disappeared behind the horizons which you may well read them as 'Once upon a time' or as a 'Fairy tales' in your school books. الولد سر أبيه -  Son is the secret of his father (
