Just because we are leading are normal lives, are happy and smile does not in the slightest sense mean that we don’t care about the atrocities that are happening in the Muslim world. Do wishing Eid Mubarak and glad tidings mean that we no longer care about our Palestinian brothers and sisters? Are we supposed to go in a state of limbo to show support? Are we going to let people dictate how we express now? How is all this benefiting the Palestinians or the Syrians or anyone else? Somebody posting a status about their happy Eid day does not affect you, neither does your hateful and critical comment of “how could post about your happy day when so many people are suffering”, your time is better spent on making duaa quietly and in seclusion to Allah subhanotalah.
Allahu al’am 

I can’t let go of ramadan this year 
Ya Allah have mercy and keep us steadfast on deen
Ya Allah may our hearts be filled with noor
Distance me from idle things 
Ya Allah Ya Allah your ummah is in pain ya Rab Only you are Just 
bring them victory bring them tranquility 

"Disney is Bollywood for kids" Mufti Kamani

"don’t worry about what other people say or think about you, they can’t put you in heaven and they can’t put you in hell. what matters is between me and Allah" Aminah Assilmi

“Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear…” (Qur’an, 2:286).

SubhanAllah The people of Palestine must be so incredible to be bearing so much Ya Allah continue to give them strength and ease their pain and reward them immensely for the pain they are enduring.

"We are not any more deserving of the calm and tranquil lives we enjoy in this world and they are not any more deserving of the kinds of oppression they are going through and this is from the Qadr of Allah azzwajal. Just seeing and experiencing the calm state we are in should remind us of how much more dua we should be making for them.." Nouman Ali Khan.

Wisdom isn’t about throwing the knowledge you have in every situation possible but knowing when and how to deliver that knowledge.
There is a time, a place and a proper way of delivering knowledge / advice.  Sometimes we are too eager to regurgitate what we know that we neglect whether or not what we are saying would be appropriate in the situation. If someone makes a mistake, is it really the right time to point them out in a crowd? If someone is occupied with work, is it really the right time to discuss a hadeeth or should you rather wait till they are finished and then talk?

May Allah guide us All

Ya Allah! Spare their blood, reassure them, feed the hungry people among
them, preserve their dignity and honour, strengthen their hearts, and grant them power and victory over their oppressors! O Allah! Lift the siege around them! Ya Allah!
Bring an end to their suffering! O Allah! Bring an end to their suffering!

CNN makes my blood boil. It’s torture to have to listen to it all day at work. 
They just showed a clip where Israeli kids at school are drawing, singing and playing. They asked a girl about the “conflict”…she goes on to say “they are bombing us but we are bombing back, so it’s even” - 10 year old Israeli girl.

Meanwhile they don’t even mention how many kids have died in Gaza, 
not even a glimpse of the situation there…  (forget school) kids are not even given safety, they are not singing and they are not playing as kids everywhere else in the world are,those little babies are living in fear, little babies are losing their mothers and fathers, not to mention not getting basic necessities  


But Allah YOU and ONLY YOU ARE JUST. 
YA ALLAH ONLY YOU CAN HELP THEM 
Ya ALLAH OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH THE INNOCENT CHILDREN OF GAZA, OUR MOTHERS, OUR FATHERS, OUR BROTHERS and SISTERS. YA ALLAH HAVE MERCY, YA ALLAH KEEP THEM SAFE.

 Shaykh Hamza Yusuf: “People tell me all the time “Muslims are arguing over stupid things, like the moon sighting. Every year we have this argument. Why can’t we just work it out?!” Well, it is amazing that we are an Ummah that still cares about these things that much, to where they’re actually important. Because a lot of religions don’t even care about these things anymore and they’re like “Who cares? What’s the big deal?” And, that’s their attitude towards their religion. But for Muslims, they do care! They want to do the right thing and there’s different opinions about what the right thing is and they get passionate about it. Now, sometimes they become overzealous and that’s a problem. But, better, in some ways, to be overzealous than to be dead, spritually, as a community! To not have any real zeal about your faith or your religion. So, I don’t think that’s a negative about the Muslims. What we’re lacking is civil society. What we’re lacking is Adab in ikhtilaaf (Etiquette in disagreement).”

let’s not mock those who start practicing in Ramadan, this might be Their turning point. don’t be the one to discourage them by pointing out that they are only doing it just because it’s ramadan.. everyone has their pivotal moment at some time … so who are we to point anyone out… in fact how blessed are they to be guided in the most blessed month of All
May Allah forgive me
May Allah forgive us all.

It’s only a mistake if you learn nothing from it.

Don’t be an armchair revolutionary, if you want change do something - at least be part of that change. Otherwise stop complaining.
