The Beauty of Islam – 2

The beauty of Islam is that it makes just one value of man whether on Earth or in the Hereafter; that is piety. It doesn’t matter how wealthy you are, unless you spend your money for the sake of God. Allah doesn’t care about your powerful position, unless you use it to support justice and righteousness, seeking to please your God, not people. It is not important what level of beauty you have unless your beauty is coated with chastity and purity. God does not appreciate your strong body unless you use your power to help the weak and the helpless.
 Thus Islam blocks the way of all sources of pride and arrogance to open only one straight path to true faith.    

Why do true Muslims have tranquil hearts?

Why do true Muslims have tranquil hearts?
It is the profound conviction in their hearts of Godly justice. Their deep faith gives them power to face pains and sufferings of life with tranquil soul and patient heart. They feel reassured, confident and happy as long as they rely on the Wise and Merciful God. Surely this is the real happiness.


Beauty of Islam

The beauty of Islam is that nothing is wasted, nothing is meaningless. Giving some water to a thirsty homeless animal can wipe out all your past sins. Birds and animals eating from plants you grow in your garden is a charity.  A compassionate touch on an orphan’s head is appreciated by God. A smile and a good word are praised. Putting a morsel in your wife’s mouth is a righteous deed. Cherishing your own family is a charity. Honouring you parents is highly estimated and rewarded.
Even your pains, physical and emotional, great and small, nothing of them is wasted or meaningless, all are counted and compensated. This is the nature of having a trade with God, The Most Generous.


Voluntary Night Prayer

Al-Hassan al-Bassry said, “I have found nothing of the acts of worship more vigorous than qiyam (voluntary night prayer). It was said to him, “Why do those, who pray voluntary at night have the best faces?” He answered, “That is because they devote themselves to be alone with their Lord, so He provides for them a ray of His Light”


A Divine Gift

Cordiality and mercy are the divine gift that The Almighty Allah grants for most newly married couples. It is our nature, our hearts and the way we think which determine whether we keep and grow our divine gift to live happily under its shade, or take our gift to slow death.

And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. (30,21)
