Oh you who believe! Be dutiful to Allah as you should be dutiful towards him, and die not except that you are in a state of total submission to Allah.

And hold tight together to the rope of Allah and do not be divided amongst yourselves! and remember Allah's favor upon you; for you were enemies and Allah brought your hearts together with love so that you became by his favor brethren; and you were on a brink of the pit of hell fire, but he saved you from it. Thus does Allah make his signs clear to you so that you may be guided.

Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones who will be successful!

Be not like those who are divided amongst themselves and fall into disputations after receiving Clear Signs: For them is a dreadful penalty.

On the Day when some faces will be (lit up with) white, and some faces will be (in the gloom of) black: To those whose faces will be black, (will be said): "Did ye reject Faith after accepting it? Taste then the penalty for rejecting Faith."

But those whose faces will be (lit with) white,- they will be in (the light of) Allah's mercy: therein to dwell (for ever).

These are the signs of Allah which We recite to you with truth, and Allah does not desire any injustice to His creatures.

Al-Imran 102 - 108

24/7 Muslim

"There are among people some who serve Allah, as it were, on the verge: if good befalls them, they are, therewith, well content; but if a trial comes to them, they turn on their faces: they lose both this world and the Hereafter: that is loss for all to see!"

Al-Hajj, 11.

"If the Truth had been in accord with their desires, truly the heavens and the earth, and all beings therein would have been in confusion and corruption! Nay, We have sent them their admonition, but they turn away from their admonition." 23:71

Steve Nash

Steve Nash has 18 assists with SIX minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

I don't want to say this but I think I am...

Steve Nash is more fun to watch then Michael Jordan...and even Chris Dudley.

Yes, I do mean it.

(Advance) فارتق

This is one of those nasheeds I wish we understood better:

Fartaqi (Advance)


فارتق في الخير و ارقى أفقا إنها العليـاء تبغي مسلما
أنت عنوان لأمجـاد الألـى فاهجر الأوحال و اصعد في السما
لن ترى يوما و نجمك آفل فارفع الرايات و امض قدما
أسرج القنديل و اشعل همة و اركب الأهوال مهما أظلما
فارتق في العزم دوما و كن شامة في الناس رمزا ملهــما
من يروم المجد يجري أدمعا تحت جنح الليل...ليلا معتما
أو يثير النقع في وجه العدا إن للجنات سحرا محكـما
فارتق في العزم دوما و كن شامة في الناس رمزا ملهما

Rough Translation:

Fartaqi (Advance)
Advance (Fartaqi)
Advance in goodness and rise to the horizon
Sublimity wanted from Muslims
You are the symbol of pearls and glories
Abandon the mud and rise to the sky
You will never see a night without a star
Run up the flags and go ahead
Light the lamp and be determined
Overcome the terrors however dark they are
Always advance by your firm will
Be a mole and symbol for people
Who seeks glory and sheds tears
Under the cover of dark night
Or raises dust in the enemy’s face
Heaven has perfect magic
Always advance by your firm will
And be like mole and inspirational symbol for people

Serious Dua'a Needed

Asalam u Alaikum,

If anyone reads this I would appreciate if you could make some serious dua'a for me. I have to make a bunch of very difficult (possibly life changing) decisions in the next week and your sincere dua'a would help of course.

In the meantime, listen to this AMAZING recitation for Hani Rif'aee. This is recorded from last years taraweeh. It is very different then his popular recordings online:
