bismillahh

Audio Version

In essence, we need to remember six things to attain a blissful marriage  … three Do’s and three Dont’s. We have heard many talks on Nikaah, but here is something that we can reflect and ponder on – The letter ‘A’ … There are many A’s we can add on, but the first ‘A’ which we should all have … Every husband, Every wife … is ‘ALLAH’

If you don’t have Allah in your life, then your life is not going to be a life of bliss and happiness. Forget it! Each one has got a responsibility firstly to Allah. Husband and wife are married yet there is no Salaah in their lives -There is no tilaawat of the Qur’aan – There is no Zikrullah – There is no mention of Allah and His Rasul Sallalahu alaihi wa sallam’s name in their home – How do we expect barakah to come? – How do we expect our wife to fulfill our duties? – How does the wife then expect the husband to fulfill her duties? We have to learn Deen – We have to connect ourselves to Allah – Then and only then will we enjoy our life – Otherwise it will be a life of sin and ghufflat (heedlessness) – Totally oblivious to Allah Subhanahu~Wa~Ta’ala as though He does not exist! – Let us change our conditions – Allah Subhanahu~Wa~Ta’ala will give you that peace, serenity and enjoyment in your life … If you obey Allah Subhanahu~Wa~Ta’ala …

Three Do’s :
‘A’ for Allah ~ Connect to Allah
‘A’ for Akhlaaq ~ Polish our Akhlaaq
‘A’ for Appreciation ~ Do not criticize our spouses / Show Gratitude

Three Dont’s :
‘A’ for Anger ~ Control Your Anger
‘A’ for Abuse ~ Physically/Mental abuse to our spouses
‘A’ for Affairs ~ Illicit Relationships

Du’aa is a Powerful Weapon ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

Du’aa is the most powerful weapon. Yet we turn somewhere else. Or we use that as a last resort. Rasulullah Sallalahu alaihi wa sallam said “Du’aa is ibadat…It is the essence of ibadat”. What is the meaning of ibadat? What is the object of ibadat? Allah Subhanahu~Wa~Ta’ala wants His servants, Allah wants His bondsman, Allah wants you and I. We are the slaves of Allah. To rub our nose, to rub our forehead on the ground. Allah wants us to raise our hands. Allah wants to see from us, what we call in arabic “atta~zallul” where we show that we are absolutely in need of Allah. Allah is the master. We are His slaves. We implore Him. We beg Him. We beseech Him. We ask Him. Allah Subhanahu~Wa~Ta’ala wants us to acknowledge that He is the supreme ruler. He is the King! Everything is in His control, and therefore we should ask Him ‘first’…

Noor of Zikr ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

Audio Version

Mu`adh ibn Jabal said that the Prophet Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam also said: “The People of Paradise will not regret except one thing alone: the hour that passed them by in which they made no Zikr of Allah.”(Bayhaqi-Tabarani)

May Allah keep our tongues moist with the Zikr of Allah … Aameen

Tahajjud Salaah ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

 بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اَللّهُِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

Audio Version

The month of Ramadaan which is quickly approaching us is a practising ground, a rehearsal for Ibadaat at night. We are all the slaves of Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala… We submit to Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala … Just like the slave submits to the commands of his master we all submit to Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala …. During the day a person submits to Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala in different ways and during the night a person should submit to Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala by engaging in Ibaadat.

Tahajjud Salaah is a means of wiping out all our sins. It becomes an obstacle for a person from comitting sins and protects the person. Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala gives him some special insight and puts noor on his face during the day. On the day of Qiyamah that special noor of Tahajjud will help a person to cross pulsiraat….

InshaAllah, Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala make us amongst those fortunate ones who spend their nights in Sajda and Ruku…

Aameen…
