6. Stay Connected to the Qur’an

Reading or memorizing the Qur’an alone is not enough. Understand it and act upon it. Try your best to act the way we were asked to in the Qur’an. Strive for the best. Reflect on its meanings; it will give you answers

to your daily life’s complications. When you read the Qur’an and understand it more you will be more likely

to reach the level of ihsan. You will want to do everything right. In the form of a man, Gabriel/Jibreel

Wrapping It All Up

Be productive, seek knowledge and take action. The more you love Allah

closer to Him. The more you get closer to Him, the more He will get closer to you. The more you will want to learn about the sunnah and the Qur’an and want to get even closer to Him, the closer you will become to

Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life, nobody comes to the father except

through me”. Now for the truth, we just don’t know. Are all jews, christians, hindus wrong ? If you were brought up in a christian country you would probably not be a muslim. If I was bought up in Pakistan I probably would be a muslim. Get it ?

 
Khadijah

June 26, 2014 at 6:20 pm

Dear Dave, thank you for your response. As Muslims we believe in all the prophets, including Jesus -peace be upon him. All the messengers of God have in essence been the same throughout the ages. Regrettably the messages became changed, modified or forgotten. The Quran was sent to a people steeped in idolatry. To a believer, the Quran is a unique book, the only book in the world to contain only the Words of God. We view Prophet Mohammed (SWS) as the final prophet in a long line of prophets that will conclude the era of revealed religions. The mission of Prophet Mohammed (SWS) was not to bring a new message but to endorse, with fresh vigour, the message delivered earlier to Abraham, David, Moses , Jesus and other Prophets, peace be upon them. The Quran, of all revelations, is the only one preserved in its original form, has been for 1400 years and will be preserved for eternity.

Our greatest difference to most Christians is that we do not believe in the divinity of Christ. Christ to us was very much a man. An exceptional human being, born of a virgin, given the power of speech from early infancy and blessed with the ability to perform miracles. (Unitarian Christians also believe this.) We have a verse in the Quran which states: “To you, your religion and to me, mine” (109:6). Only God, praise and glory be to Him, will be the judge on the day of resurrection. What is important is that we believe in the Creator and understand that this life is only a test. God created man with unique powers of sentiment, consciousness, initiative and choice. Use these precious gifts to learn more about the life and times of Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, and you may come to realise that we have much in common. Kind regards, Khadijah.

A while ago I was wondering what the original language of the Bible is. Maybe if we learned the bible through its original language we would be able to understand the similarities of the two monotheistic religions: Islam and Christianity. Surely, meaning change and don’t exactly mean the same thing in a translation. The Quran explain everything one must know and be confused about, please give the Quran your sincere effort

Hello Dave. As an individual you have the right to search for God and fins him. If someone is brought up to something they still need to search the truth and see if it makes sense to them. There are a lot or Muslims that do not practice the religion the way it’s suppose to be practiced. I believe firmly if everybody practices their religion right and sticks to it, there would be less evil in the world. We were made different people with different races and cultures so we get to know one another. Not judge each other. The more you know others in the right way without hatred the more space we can give each other to love one another. And appreciate our differences as a beauty and a sign of God’s existence :)

Father’s refer to holy tree from Adam a.s to all prophet before is a a.s. but followers of isa a.s to spread their religion accept pagan philosophy. Like pagan worship stars or father as god nauzubillah, Christian start same. Christian worship sun and father are

polytheists or pagan. Ibrahim is monotheists. So come to Islam a monotheist religion or isa a.s is follower of monotheist religion not pagan

Yzn

April 8, 2016 at 2:58 pm

Dave, Yes I get it. Allah is never unjust. He knows what you’re saying better than you and me. Note that’s why God is the only One who can judge. That being said, when Jesus peace be upon him said that, I believe and agree with him, he says that whatever he follows is the way. And keep in mind, he himself followed the Torah commandments did he not?

So since all this time has passed, every born muslim and born Christian should look for the truth.If he doesn’t, he had just followed what his parents taught him.

In my humble opinion I believe that Allah SWT will make me and you go back to him if he knows we’re looking for the truth.

Shawn Harris

If he had been brought up in a Christian country and He loved God, he would (insha Allah) have found discrepencies and interpolations in the Injeel(gospel) and Torah(old testament) that would have caused him to seek even further into the matter. Allah SWT says in Quran: “whoever seeks a path to knowledge, I will create for him a path to Jannah. I myself was raised a Christian and am now following the True religion of

Prophets, from Abraham to Jesus, and Muhammad SAW. Jesus revelation was revealed in Armaic and translated into Greek. Muhammads religion was revealed in Arabic. Try to find two closer languages. Not even latin and spanish are as close. Allahu Akbar!!

Beautiful- and thank you, brother. In staying away from poisons, I almost always have to come first from Allah al Rahman and Allah al Halim to keep from shame and guilt that keeps me paralyzed. When I taste even a drop of Allah’s overwhelming love, it makes it easier to want to stay away from poisons, rather than beating myself up because of my mistakes. Astaghfir Allah.

I can relate with you brother. My own inability to stay away from sins cripples me. And I imagine how can Allah forgive me now? How can He love a wretched like me? But He rescues me with His love. Like literally pulls me out of a black hole. Alhamdullilah

I have just realized that Allah and getting closer to Islam is the only way to get inner peace and to remove my low self-esteem. I have been trying to ignore getting closer to Allah for far too long. Now I am at war with my inner self (and shaytan) to truly surrender to his will. It is one of the biggest struggles now in my life. But I will keep fighting until I surrender. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and with Allah’s will I will reach his light.

brother Omar, I like your honesty in expressing your inner struggle with negative thoughts or temptations allured by Shaitan… I am.too, a man who has resisted to surrender to the will of Allah. For me the biggest challenge has been the UNfair world that we see around us: My main issue with surrendering is the undeniable fact of Victimization: I mean the sufferings of children and innocent people through any evil that mankind do or nature caused. But, I try so hard to turn a blind eye to those facts and still seek refuge to Allah….

Brother, we do not have to turn a blind eye to ‘suffering’. we simply have to surrender that Allah (set) knows and we do not know. what helps me is being reminded that children are not taken to account. a child who dies will meet their parents on the day of judgment, bearing water, but will not themselves be judged. and any suffering by those other than children, is an expiation for sin. would you rather suffer temporary discomfort in this world, or eternal torment in the hereafter. Allah (swt) knows and we do not know. and all is from His Will.

I am going to show it to my husband who has been rather ill for a few years and has not prayed. I know he remembers Allah always in his heart but the weariness he feels due to his illness, makes him feel unable to even attempt to take a wudu. Your article does not mention the rituals, but goes straight to the centre of what will enable us to love Allah (SWT) and know that he will then love us. This simple truth, I know will inspire him to go back to prayer. May Allah bless you in your mission to be the best possible person you can be. Yours in the love of Allah (SWT) Khadijah

Put your trust and faith in Him. Look for him in all the beauty around you and banish Shaitan by Saying: there is no power except Allah (SWT). Allah SWT says: “Call upon Me and I will answer every call”. There is no need to be afraid when Allah is with you. Khadijah

Dear erum, its very

next? You dying as a true muslim. Thats a huge privilege. Think about this every time you think of dying if you start doing good deeds. It will help. Also remember that at least you feel Allah but you just cant be closer to him bse of shaitan. You may start by listening to teachings of different scholars to lubricate your heart before you immense

easy.

.think about you dying while in a prayer or reciting Quran.what

yourself into serious prayers. However, remember that time is not on your side. So hurry up looking for the truth before actual death comes. Inshaallah you will se the right path soon. Amin

Alhamdulilah that Allah inspired me to say some things that would benefit myself first and others. I sometimes need to look back at this article to train myself again and again to keep getting closer to Allah. I am very humbled by the beautiful comments, they actually made me cry. Some of the comments were made during times of struggles for me, some of them were duas that might just have been the reason I got through the hardships :) Alhamdulilah for being Muslims. Alhamdulilah that Allah makes us reach places that lighten our hearts and make us feel his mercy shiver on our skin. I just want to ask for a favor from all of you who read this, I recently had a baby boy called Adam. Please remember him in your duas and his future brother/sisters and the parents too :) Lastly, I like to thank ProductiveMuslim.com for giving me the opportunity to take hassanat and inspire the Muslim community to be better muslims.

Never give up keep getting up. And have faith in Allah’s strength and plan for you. We are all in the same Jihad. Allah loves those who do tawba abundantly. Keep going back to Allah. Keep trying your best. And expect nothing, but the best from your Creator. May Allah make your heart firm on his Deen. And may He make you comprehend this religion and Dunia the way he loves amen to all the Muslimeen.

Slm my brothers and sisters. Jazak Allah what a beautiful article! I’m a newly Muslim based in South Africa, I must say it a bumpy ride in terms of changing my life around

and deep down I know this is my path. I too have been fighting within my inner self against Shaitan to build a stronger bond with God, inshallah through faith and believe things will fall into place. I’m still learning about Islam and realised I’ve got along way to go but I’m loving every minute of my journey! I’m glad I came across this article. God bless :-)

First of all, I would like thank my dear sister for actually taking time out and posting this religious post for all of the muslims and non-muslims around the world. May Allah give my sister countless rewards. Second, The reason for my comment isn’t just to appreciate the work of my sister but to convey a message and the message is that if anyone who has been living with the uncleared direction I would ask them to forget everything and give your life a re-strart from here. Note down all these instructions and start living from here. It is your chance to give yourself what you have always wanted and you can clearly do it from now onwards. Its simple and easy to understand and have major rewarding outcomes. Jazakallah

Firstly I would like to congratulate you for realising that you love allah.now you have to prove your love for allah subhanallah watalah and that is to learn the quran and few surahs by heart and remember some darood.start today or now.its better to realise your mistake and rectify that mistake. Be proud to be a practising muslim star your namaz today and ask dua for making you and all of us better muslims and to do our at most best in this life test.well done stick to it time is ticking always read your namaz as if it’s your last namaz best of luck inshallah

 

Assalaamualaikum Sr. Shyliza, May Allah reward you for your perseverance and dedication towards becoming more connected with the Quran and Allah – you’re efforts are truly an indication that if we commit ourselves to something we really want, we can definitely attain it! These are some websites and apps you can use to practice the Qaida and Quran:

To draw yourself closer to Allah, start with your five daily prayers. Ensure that they are prayed on time and in full concentration. This is a beautifully written article series which talks about how we revamp our prayers: http://productivemuslim.com/khushu-in-salah-

After this, try incorporating as much as you can from the points mentioned in this article:

http://productivemuslim.com/6-steps-to-get-you-closer-to-allah-swt/. But of course, take it one step at a time! For example, you may want to start by making the resolution to fix your fardh prayers and reading your morning and evening duas everyday (http://makedua.com/). In addition, are there any habits you want to get rid of because you know they are disliked by Allah (e.g. backbiting, using foul language etc.?) You may find it beneficial to keep track of your progress – not only with this help you be more consistent in your efforts but it be a great way to motivate yourself as well:

There is a quote that says: “Sometimes we fall because there is something down there we’re supposed to find”. Sometimes when we face hardships in our life, we see them from a negative perspective and question why they are happening to us. But remember that when something comes from Allah, there is always good in it. So although you may be experiencing difficulties in your life, think of them as a blessing in disguise. Perhaps if you had not gone through them, you would not have been so determined to become a better Muslim :) Finally, remember these last two verses: “Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity” (http://quran.com/2/286); “Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.” (http://quran.com/13/28).

The help of Allah is indescribable because as He tells us himself in the Quran: But Allah is your protector, and He is the best of helpers.” (3:150). To illustrate this, reflect on the story of the Battle of badr where the Muslims had about 300 soldiers and the disbelievers had about 1000. With barely any arms to protect themselves and camels/horeses to ride upon and despite the disbelievers being fully equiped, the Muslims went forward, determined and motivated. And the way Allah helped them is truly spectacular: Allah made the size of the opposing appear small in number to the Muslims and despite the odds, the Muslims won the battle (3: 13; 8:44). Likewise, reflect on the story of Prophet Yunus who was stuck in the belly of a Whale and by Allah’s will, was released. Or the story of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Abu Bakr when they hid in the cave of Thor as the Quraish pursued them and the spider made a thick web in the entrance, giving the impression that no one could have possibly entered.

One common feature among all these stories, however, is that in all three situations, there was sincere faith in Allah. And Allah gives us every reason to believe that He will always be there for us during our times of need when He states in the Quran: “And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided” (2:186). He is there to be your guide, your sound of reason, your support, your best friend, your motivation and much more. And only He can help you in ways that no other human being possible can because it is only Allah who is the Most Powerful, the Most Loving, the Most Merciful, and the Most Forgiving. His abilities are unmatched by any of His creation. And it is for this reason that He can Help in ways we never thought possible. This is a short lecture on Ayatul Qursi which truly captures Allah’s greatness is:

Hope this helps!

Thanks for everything you wrote…. I need you to answer that… how can you be free of

shaytan life. If you leave AND work in place that all what I sell is haram in Islam. How

and

remembering of allah

All things I do is haram who ever I am

can you keep praying meeting is doing

And having children form women not your wife. If I combined

the good AND the bad. More than likely .bad things happen to my life is great. So now

how can I fix the past. How at least I can restart

which the important things I like

to say I memorized the Quran when I was younger. Sorry but I have been lost for a long time now. I don’t know what can I do. I even went for Umurah, and I still can’t find my self

… jazaka allah khayran. Just the guilt part is killing me and stress is greater than you can

imagine. Including using Again jazaka Allah

I THINK you know what I mean and nothing is getting better.

If you did wrongdoing close your eyes then say Astaghfirullah! And recite Kalma tayyaba(100 times) and recite sleep prayer(sonay ki dua) without opening your eyes sleep……… Insha Allah this act will increase your love towards Allah (subhanaho wata aala)

This is a very inspirational artical and i took notes … what i struggle in life is focus … with so many dream of wanting to be this and that i loose focus and i never get to be anything … because i give up so quick before i reach a level that i could consider myself an expert… the other challenge i have is with respect to the second point which poison … unfortunately my poison is within myself with adicction to bad habits; you go for 4 months without relapsing and then all of a sudden you are back to square one …

today was one of those days that i went back to square one and all my progress comes crushing down and i feel destryed … and i figured that the only way i can rid myself of this desease is if i get closer to Allah subhana wa taala … did a search and came across this article

as mentioned in the beginning of the artical Strong intention to get closer to Allah; Patience;.Consistency; Avoid doing nothing; my intention to stop my bad habits are there, but somehow i loose myself and i loose my consciousness and relapse just happens

i will try the prescription set forth in this article, need the patiance and try to live consciously … if anyone has any pointers i will be happy to hear from them

Thanks and Best Regards to all

Salam alk.

What a great article. really what i was searching for.I really need help. I have been drowning away from God and islam and my head is already sunk only my fingers are still above water and I really need Allahs help to pull my fingers out and get me up again. i have moved from a very pious muslim boy who recited lots of dua growing up to till i was 26yrs old and now after that i started to sink till now that i am 33 yrs and i am still struggling to get myself back up. somewhere within my heart i know what is the sweetness of faith and what it is to please Alllah because i was there for many years but now i am so preoccuppied with the world that i dont know how i got there. Each day becomes tough and i struggle so hard to make it right thinking that i am the one doing it. my job is taking my life with islam. Allah has blessed me but i am struggling to be in islam. i am a muslim by name only and not by character. I have moved away from prayers and when i do pray, its only by physical and not by heart. there is no piety there again. i miss this feeling of closeness to God and i am so far away from it. each days gets worse and I need help. Unfortunately now somehow i am not sure if its Allah or shaytan,my work now moved me from my country where so many people are poor and you can remember Allah alot and there is a lot of worship to a more affluent country where people are not remembering Allah that much and neither are they much christians. I see this a s a punishment in disguise. Please i need help and honest advice. Sometimes i think about abandoning my things and work and just go away and return back home where people live lower lives and can see people still worshipping Allah again.

Assalam alykkum w r b

Masha allah tabarakallah. Very good article. Many people dont reallize the importance of learning and trying to comprehend the 99 names of allah.

It is only those who have knowledge (of Allah) among His slaves that fear Allah. [Fatir (35): 28]

I want to add a few points to this and would be great if you could also consider adding these. First of all love of allah is strongly associated with His fear. If someone says that he/she loves allah then, he/she should be fearful about Him. A reflection of that will be there in his life, primarily his salah. The sahaba used to fear and love allah more than any other group of people and it reflected in their salah. Its reported in many hadith about sahaba that when they stood for salah, they would turn pale, and they would tremble and shake and tears would run down their eyes profusely. The same theme is expressed in quran as the first and most important sign of a true believer. Successful indeed are the believers. Those who offer their Salat (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness (fear). (surah muminoon :1,2) Quran in another place states For, Believers are those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a tremor in their hearts, and when they hear His signs rehearsed, find their faith strengthened, and put (all) their trust in their Lord; (Al Anfal 8:2) This literally means that when a true believer hears the name “Allah”, his heart shakes and when he recites quran, he gets closer to allah in every single verse we recite or hear. For such a person, salah will be an intense form of worship, when he/she realizes that he/she is standing in front of allah. When he says Allahuakbar and starts his salah, he will say that wholeheartedly, it will not be just a word of utterance but truly coming out of his heart. When he recites Fathiha and other verses, it will come right out of his heart. When he goes into rukku or sajdah and praises Allah by saying Subhana ribi al adeem/a3la, it comes right out of his heart causing him to tremble and cry. He will not rush in his salah and will not lose concentration.

This believer when he finishes his/her salah and asks Allah for help, Allah grands help and when he asks for protection, Allah protects him. His/her life will be like stream of water running down a hill, flowing effortlessly. Every thing around him will help him and aid him and Allah bestows his livelihood with out a struggle. For all this, he/she should have touheed deep in his/her heart and should understand that all the 99 names or qualities are for allah alone and no Human/Angel/Prophet/Jin/money/power is like Allah in any sense and every one/thing bows down to Allah in ultimate submission/humility.

Secondly as you pointed out, there is no way to make Allah happy, except through the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W). Look for sunnah in every thing you do and make all your ibadah as similar to the prophet’s as possible with out any deviation. If anyone tells you, doing a certain thing is good, ask for proof that the Prophet or sahaba have done it. If its not available, just reject it.

Thirdly and that should be the basis for all others, a person should submit every thing to allah wholeheartedly including his/her life, wealth family etc. He should not have any aim in life except for making Allah happy and should sincerely hope to die for Allah some day.
