From the Minaret #2. . . Do not break anyone’s heart;

21271110_1309081875884187_6395011237888796059_n

“The universe is a complete unique entity.
Everything and everyone is bound together with some invisible strings.
Do not break anyone’s heart; do not look down on any weaker than you.
One’s sorrow at the other side of the world can make the entire world suffer; one’s happiness can make the entire world smile.”

~ Shams Tabrizi (r.a.)

You were planted in this world to rise above it.

“This plant represents what’s happening inside of you.
The world, like the soil, is cold and dark—layered with a history of destruction and death.
You were planted in this world to rise above it.
Do you not see?
The very existence of this darkness gives you the opportunity to become a light to the world.”

~ Seth Adam Smith

Renouncing worldliness does not mean,…

22309091_1516085518458450_2075578139553613781_n

” Renouncing worldliness
does not mean,
for instance, that one becomes naked,
wearing only loin cloth
and sitting (in solitude).
Renouncing worldliness means,
instead, to wear clothes and ….
to take food while at the same time
keeping in continuous use
whatever comes to hand,
feeling no inclination to hoard
… and no attachment
to material objects.
That disposition alone
is tantamount to renouncing
…. worldliness. ”

– Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti

Harvest Full Moon Blessings!

22196123_1611442505572731_4868408576442822724_n

Full Moon Blessings!
The Harvest Full Moon in Aries on October 5th!
Aries is the most individualistic Zodiac sign,
and having the Full Moon in opposition to Mercury,
the planet of communication,
can trigger negative reactions, dramatic decisions
and angry resolutions.

So, try to stay grounded, neutral and calm.
Let your wisdom, not fear guide you through challenges,
shifts and transformations.
Open your heart to empathy and compassion
that is what the world needs most right now.

Yet, one day we feel the sun on our face again.

22007442_1544882195571724_4373477950700170928_n

We never really get over a devastating loss.
In the thick of it, we almost stop breathing; sometimes even wishing we could.
And we know deep within that we will never be the same.
Yet, one day we feel the sun on our face again.
We find ourselves smiling at a child or a joke or a memory.
And at that moment, we realize we are finding our way back.
Changed forever? Yes.
But also softer, deeper, more vulnerable and more loving too.
And we are breathing again.

Be thankful for nights that turned into mornings,

22008073_1357062301069288_4944337441742732406_n

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong,
and start thinking of what could go right.
Better yet, think of everything that already is right.
Be thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends
that turned into family, and past dreams and goals that turned into realities.
And use this positivity to fuel an even brighter tomorrow.

Eid-el-Kabir Takeaway . . . The Holy Prophet Muhammad never did so.

18527997_1041542035975678_1283359712279370780_n

Stop calling yourself Aashiq of the Prophet ﷺ if you are not willing to adopt His beautiful behaviour.

You marginalise minorities and claim to be Muslims. But The Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ never marginalised anyone in his life.

You treat Christians and other minorities different in your country. You think they are filthy and unworthy to drink in the same cup as yours. You keep separate cups and plates for them.

But The Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ never did so. He did not have different Cups in his home for the non-Muslims. Even when was not among a minority anymore in Madinah he would still not marginalise non-Muslims. He accepted the invitations for meal by Christians and Jews.

You treat minorities differently and when you are in Europe you expect to be treated with respect.

You insult and swear at those who do not agree with your opinion. You claim to be scholars of Islam and use the Minbar to use the most insulting and filthy language for others.

But The Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ never insulted or swore at anyone.

— Shaykh Dr. Umar Al-Qadri
