At times of difficulty we may hasten to give up all hope. We may utter words
that we normally wouldn’t. Or we may simply contemplate the immense situation that we are placed in…
‘Why am I being trailed like this?’
‘What did I do to deserve this?’
As humans we tend to forget.
We forget that our creator and savior informed us of the test that will befall us as Mu’mins, believers.
Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: “We believe,” and will not be tested. And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make it known the truth of those who are true, and will certainly make it known the falsehood of those who are liars. [Surah Al Ankabut 29:2-3]
Ok so most of us know that we will be faced with hardships and tests, but we still have the mentality that we are being faces with something that is far too… unbearable.
Well let’s pause there for a second. Who knows more about your capabilities, you or your Creator, Allah?
Of course you’ll answer Allah.
So why question?
Allah does not burden a soul except [with that within] its capacity. [2:286]
So when such thoughts enter to your mind,
And take heed. For truly there is wisdom behind everything.
“And it may be that you hate a thing though it is good for you, and love a thing though it is bad for you. Allah (Swt) Knows and you know not.” [2:216]

Since I reverted to Islam I’ve often done tons of research to know how to become the best wife I possibly can Inshaállah. I’ve noticed it’s very easy to find compiled lists of what a wife should and shouldn’t do but also noticed how hard it is to find that list for brothers. Why does everyone concentrate on the wife? Wife must obey the husband, wife should look pretty for husband, wife must keep a clean home, blah blah blah the list goes on. I’m not saying that the list isn’t in any way wrong because I try my best to practice those duties as a wife but I think “some” brothers also should remember they have duties more than just bringing in the money. So as to a few requests I’ve gotten from sisters here is a list I was able to compile from two articles written by scholars.
“Among His signs is the fact that he has created spouses from among yourselves, so that you may find tranquillity with them; and he has put love and mercy between you. In that are signs for people who reflect.”
“They (wives) are garments for you, while you are garments for them.”
“From among the believers are those who have the kindest disposition and are the kindest to their families- such are those who show the most perfect faith. “The best among them are those who are kindest to their wives.” [Bukhari and Muslim] (more…)

Remember when you and your friend were always close and you could tell each other anything? You were the closest to each other and nobody else came between you two?After some time, you noticed that this friend was acting abit strange, and they wasn’t giving you the attention you usually had.. wasup with him/her? you asked yourself. This friend gradually started hanging out with you less and you never spoke to each other that much. They started acting abit more ‘kool’ and they felt that you was oldskool..What if it’s a guy, or a gyal? you thought to yourself.. i’ve never seen them act this strange before.
Turns out, what you thought was right. They wanted to join the scene too and you was left behind, you’re still a kid in their eyes but they’ve grown up. I’m hangin with the bad boyz now, or the ‘thuggetez.’ (more…)
