A REMINDER FROM ME TO YOU

ways to become a better muslimah!

                                                            

 

 

 1.

Accept that Allah Almighty exists without a doubt and His attributes are beyond our imagination. He is capable of everything and anything. Faith in Allah is essential. Accept that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the last of a long line of Prophets that started with Adam, through Noah, Ibrahim, Musa, Jesus and everyone in between. Accept that the Holy Quran is the last and true word of Allah.

  • Pray sincerely. Affirm that Allah is close to you. Always pray on time, never delay. Never do things that will only prevent you to do things that are much more important. Nothing is much more important than obeying what God asks of you. While working or studying, halt everything you are doing and go to the nearest mosque to pray. If somebody were to ask you where you are heading, say that you are answering Allah's call to prayer.

    Pray in the middle of the night. Pray when most people around you are sleeping soundly. The name of the prayer is Tahajjud. However to perform this special voluntary prayer, you must have some sleep first, even if it is very short. The night is the most efficacious time to pray.
  • 4
    Recite His name every time. Also known as Dhikr in Muslim terminology, reciting His name will ultimately make you a strong Muslim because you are constantly reminded of what good He has done for you.
  • 5
    Be grateful for everything you have. The more thankful you are the more you will realize how much you have been blessed. And by doing this, Insha'Allah, you will be stronger because you will believe that Allah is present and you are staying aware that you only habe it because of Allah Aza Wa Jal.
  • 6
    Protect your chastity. You need to know that adultery is a sinful act and always avoid it. . Yaa Muslimah's you should not wear tight or revealing clothes, and you should always lower your gaze and guard your chasity.
  • 7
    Keep to your promise. If you feel that you could not manage something, just inform that person so. Abiding to your promise will ultimately make you trustworthy person.
  • 8
    Respect the good opinion of others. No opinions are bad or stupid. You should treat them as gems. Without opinions, things will never get better. If you do not like any idea, do not invalidate them but add on to the idea to improve it.

    Fast for the right reasons. Not because you want to impress others, nor because you want to feel superior in terms of popularity when you get fitter later. Fast with the intention to please only Allah, and to get the reward for fasting. Also fast because you will be able to perform salat correctly and also because you want to be responsible over your health. Nevertheless fast because of remembering those who do not have privileges like food and water. Fast twice a week, preferably on Mondays and Thursdays. Fast during the month of Ramadan and also on the day of Arafah which is on the 9th of Zulhijjah. Allah will forgive all the sins you have done the one year before and after if you fast during the day of Arafah.

    Never lie. It should be emphasized again. Allah hates his adherents to lie to others. Your integrity will directly have an impact towards your dignity. People will look high upon you if you are honest and true to whatever you say. Unless the lie will actually cover up somebody else's shame or will avoid distress for everybody. For instance, if your friend have stolen money from his parents, you should not tell others that your friend had once stolen money.

    Be good to your husband if you are married and Prepare yourself to be good to him if you are not!.
  • ( Surah Ar-Rum: 21)And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves,
  • that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your hearts.
  • 12
    Struggle towards goodwill. Sacrifice your time and visit the mosque if there is a lecture. Forfeit your property to those who needs it more than you do. In other words, always give charity. The recipient will be thankful that you have given them aid in their daily life. Remember, the one who gives is better than than one who receives.
  • 13
    Practice felicity towards everything. Be gentle and good-hearted not only to your parents, but to your cousins, to your friends, to the flora and fauna around you. Always protect the surroundings. Never ever be aggressive towards the animals. You can always protect the environment by throwing rubbish properly and using the common transport.
  • 14
    Be gracious towards your parents. They have worked hard to bring home food. Your mother has suffered all the pain just to bring you to this world. What have you done to say thanks to them? They have brought joy to your life by buying you presents every now and then. Have you acknowledged that and appreciated them? Do whatever they expect of you and you will be fine.
     ( Surah Isra: 23-24) And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, or shout at them but address them in terms of honor. And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was young."
