Reflections from Surah Ar Rahman & Surah Al Mulk
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
My reflections from this week’s classes:
How Allah سبحان وتعالى plans! We have witnessed this before also many times! This shows all surahs are interconnected.
In surah Mulk Allah سبحان وتعالى says
ٱلَّذِي خَلَقَ ٱلۡمَوۡتَ وَٱلۡحَيَوٰةَ لِيَبۡلُوَكُمۡ أَيُّكُمۡ أَحۡسَنُ عَمَلٗاۚ وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡغَفُورُ (٢)
Allah المصدق confirms by showing rewards of Ihsan In surah ar Rahman.
Why we need to do Ihsan n how can we do Ihsan?
Allah first shows His Ihsan on us in both surahs!
احسن كما احسن الله اليك
The One Who Owns Dominion is Blessed and He is Ar Rahman!
He beautified our exam room with His Ihsan!
He is Ar Rahman yet we need to fear His Position! Not to be deceived by His vast Mercy!
People of both the gardens they are the best and successful people!
كُلُّ نَفۡسٖ ذَآئِقَةُ ٱلۡمَوۡتِۗ وَإِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوۡنَ أُجُورَكُمۡ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِۖ فَمَن زُحۡزِحَ عَنِ ٱلنَّارِ وَأُدۡخِلَ ٱلۡجَنَّةَ فَقَدۡ فَازَۗ وَمَا ٱلۡحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنۡيَآ إِلَّا مَتَٰعُ ٱلۡغُرُورِ (١٨٥)
They are people of paradise they passed all tests, fulfilled all obligations and by the Mercy of Allah سبحان وتعالى they entered paradise. But students of first gardens they got A* and A in their tests while the second garden is for the one who got grade B,C,D…in their exams some are good some are fair some are average students but they passed الحمد لله .
But their level in paradise is not same as Allah سبحان وتعالى is most just and He doesn’t let go waste any of our deeds
فان الله لا يضع اجر المحسنين
ان الله المحسن يحب الاحسان
So how can we do Ihsan?
1 Fearing position of Allah.
و لمن خاف مقام ربه جنتان ⭐️
2 Believe (no shirk)
The whole surah says why we need to rely only on Allah سبحان وتعالى (like a bird, flee to Allah)
قُلۡ هُوَ ٱلرَّحۡمَٰنُ ءَامَنَّا بِهِۦ وَعَلَيۡهِ تَوَكَّلۡنَاۖ فَسَتَعۡلَمُونَ مَنۡ هُوَ فِي ضَلَٰلٖ مُّبِينٖ (٢٩)
And we can do all the above when we know
كل من عليها فان و يبقى وجه ربك ذول جلال و الاكرام
Everyone and everything will perish and Face of our Lord full of Majesty and Honor will remain forever!
This will make us to do Ihasan… as if you see Him and if you don’t see Him, He sees you..
ان تعبد الله كانك تراه فان لم تكن تراه فانه يراك
May Allah سبحان وتعالى make us among the muhsineen… Ameen
جزاك الله خيرا استاذة ايمان ❤️
بارك الله فيكم 🤍
Reflections from Surah Ar Rahman & Surah Al Mulk
Assalamu Alaykum wa rahmatullahir wa barakaatahu my beloved ustadah and sisters .
I wanted to share my reflection about yesterday’s class Allah Ar Rahman in surah Mulk verse 20/ 21.
Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem
I learnt LIFE is supposed to be with ups and downs , and ultimately Allah subhaana wataala wants out of his vast mercy ONLY to guide us to our final destination of eternal happiness and in this journey WE cannot have any EMERGENCY number to call for VICTORY,HELP,MERCY except Ar Rahman!
I learnt the solution is TAWHEED and victory is with it .
And after that Allah Ar Rahman brings the means to us of what we need for ease in all our matters of concern.
I really learnt and it’s engraved in my heart ❤️ “ Do not worry hold onto the tawheed to reset any imbalances by the vast mercy of Allah , Ar Rahman Al Malik”
Lastly , it came to my mind what I learnt from ustadah Eeman about Maryam ( alayhi Salam) when she took refuge with Allah and said “Aoothu bi Rahmaan” I seek refuge with the most merciful.
Victory and provision is from Allah … May Allah never leave us alone even for a blink of an eye. Aameen
Jazak Allah khayr ustadh Eeman .
Reflections about As Sabiqoon and Ashaab al yameen
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Nurturing lessons from this week
Allah has shown us the difference between As Sabiqoon and Ashaab al yameen. The people of teh right are believers. So, What prevents them from reaching to the level of the foremost ones? What prevents them from being from the mutawakiloon?
The answer is in the nurturing from Surah Al Mulk:
Perhaps there is some minor shirk?
Because the Hadith about Tawakkul, is based on Tawheed.
Maybe they attach to the means sometimes, maybe they believe someone can help them, maybe they rely on themselves at times, maybe they have expectations from people, perhaps they seek protection through someone, maybe they have little doubts in their hearts. So perhaps their is faith is good, but not to that high level.
So it is a reminder for us to increase in faith, even if we think we already believe.
It is a reminder for us to remove any other dependencies and attach to Allah more,
even if we say لا اله الا الله
It is a reminder for us to really leave everything in the Hands of Allah, even if we feel we trust Him.
Allah is showing us, while we are alive, there is room for nurturing, there is room for improvement, there is always a higher level.
May Allah make us to go higher and higher.
Reflections about living with the Names of Allah
Assalamualaikum sisters… I know I don’t message much in this group but wanted to share my reflection this time😅
Alhamdulillah for this markaz and dearest ustadha…I have felt a massive change in myself and the way I percieve any situation coming my way. I learnt some beautiful names of Allah and I have started to incorporate those in my duas as well as in my daily life. For example, anytime I commit a mistake or maybe talk in anger I immediately stop knowing Allah is watching me He is As samee and al baseer, I run to Allah knowing He is the most merciful and He will forgive and guide me to be my best, al maalik , owner of everyone n everything we don’t have control over anything not even make dua by ourselves until He wants us to and I cannot change anyone’s feelings towards me like love or hate unless He wills as He is control of everyone..I can only put in my efforts and make dua..
These r few examples of how my way of thinking has changed and how I learned about Allah through His beautiful names…now I feel much more at peace amd calm coz I know what to do in any given situation..
I’m so happy that Allah has guided me to this group where I get to read all your reflections and it really touches my heart.
May Allah guide us to help each other remind ourselves of Allah and His beautiful jannah..May Allah bless all those involved in Al Salam markaz with goodness in this world and the hereafter 💕 💞
