Following the Good Way

Shaytan is our enemy. Shaytan has a trick for every kind of person. Some he leads to sinful actions like drinking or adultery. Some who do only good things, shaytan misleads into arrogance and pride. It is dangerous to be alone. Find a guide and stay with the good ones.

Cleanliness, both physical and spiritual, is at the heart of Islam. To be Muslim is to be clean. People must know that many of the Muslims of today do not represent true Islam. Don’t be afraid of Islam - it is both tolerant and pure. All Muslims are brothers.

The day of Ashura is a holy day. We fast that day and the day before or the day after as well. There is a special prayer to be done before Asr on that day. Allah is not looking for the rich, or the beautiful, or the smart. He is looking for those who love Him.

The Love of a Murshid

The love of a husband, or wife or child is temporary. Love your Murshid. He brings you closer to a level that you don’t know. A level of feeling confidence and comfort with Allah and Rasulullah. A true murshid is a heavenly gift. Without his love you are nothing.

Nasiha (advice) must first be given to oneself and then only to others. Ego rejects real advice because learning is painful so having a Murshid is important. His Nasiha is a ready-to-eat meal. It teaches acceptance, good manners and how to learn all in one. So remind, keep it simple, the response will come.
