In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

Majority of Women in Hell fire!

O’ my beloved sisters in Islam;

do not occupy yourself with worldy desires such as following the daily trends of fashion,watching Bollywood movies,

singing and dancing to tunes which contain statements that are forbidden in Islam,

do not freely mix yourself amongst men (Muslim/non-Muslim),

do not leave your homes dressed to impress the evil within society,

do not pose with high heels,

do not display yourself openly while you are covered,

do not draw attention by actting foolishly in the streets,

protect yourself from the evil within you,

the cursed Shaytaan, and the evil that you drag with you.

Wake up! and realize you are not promised tomorrow.

Repent to your Lord, the Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

Ask for guidance, patience, and strength.

May Allah, the Most High, protect us and guide us so that our ultimate goal in this life is to obtain His Pleasure ;

Ameen

“Know they not that whoever opposes and shows hostility to Allaah and His Messenger, certainly for him will be the fire of Hell to abide therein? That is extreme disgrace”. (9:63)

Most of the sinners amongst the monotheists who enter Hell will be women, as is reported in as-Saheehayn, via Ibn ‘Abbaas: in the khutbah given during a solar eclipse, the Prophet (sallahu’alayhi wa sallam) said,

“I saw Hell and I saw that most of its inhabitants were women”.

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri reports:

The Prophet (sallahu’alayhi wa sallam) said,

“O women give in charity, for I have seen that you form the majority of the people of Hell.”

They asked, “Why is that so, O Messenger of Allaah (saw)?”

He said, “Because you curse too much and are ungrateful for good treatment”.

(al-Bukhaari and Muslim)

Usaamah ibn Zayd reported that the Prophet (sallahu’alayhi wa sallam) said:

“I stood at the gate of Hell, and saw that most of those who entered were women”.

(al-Bukhaari and Muslim)

Muslim reports from ‘Imraan ibn Husayn (ra) that the Prophet (sallahu’alayhi wa sallam) said,

“Few of the inhabitants of Paradise are women”.

This does not contradict the fact that every man in Paradise will have more than one wife. What is referred to by the women who will be the majority of the inhabitants of Hell is women who are descendants of Aadam: the inhabitants of Paradise will have many wives from among al-Hoor al-‘Iyn.

“Women will be few among the inhabitants of Paradise because in most cases they prefer the immediate pleasures of this life, as they are less wise and unable to keep the Hereafter in mind. They are too weak to strive and prepare themselves for it, and are more inclined towards this world. In spite of all this, they are the strongest factor in this world that distracts men from the Hereafter, because men are inclined to desire them and they are not concerned with the Hereafter. They are quick to follow those who call them to deviate from Islaam, and reluctant to follow those pious people who cal them to the Hereafter, and righteous deeds”. (al-Qurtubee, at-Tadhkirah, 1/369)

In spite of all this, there are many righteous women among them, who stay within the limits set by Allaah (swt), adhere to His laws, and obey Allaah (swt) and His Messenger. Many of these women will enter Paradise, and many of them excel over men in their faith and righteous deeds.

My dear sisters in Islaam, prove yourself wrong and be amongst the righteous women of Islaam. Dedicate yourself to obey the commands of your Lord, and His Messenger (sallahuàlayhi wa sallam) and realize that there is NO pleasure in other than which pleases your Creator.

O Muslimah!

Fear Your Lord!

Give charity and repent before its too Late!

O my dear sisters in Islam

Wear ur hijab – preserve ur modesty – say NO to envy and backbiting!

Be a practicing and exemplary muslimah for u are the PEAR OF ISLAM!!

May Allah bless u all..

Ameen

The Beauty of a True Muslimah

Assalamualaikum beloved SistersInIslam,

May Allah forever guide us in preserving ur honour and dignity as true muslimahs. May Allah always forgive us and have Mercy on us and may Allah preserve and seal sisterhood with His Love and Light.

True muslimahs are just like the diamonds, protected and covered beneath the layers and layers of solid rocks, true muslimahs are also like the pearls protected and covered in shells down beneath the mighty ocean, but in reality more precious than the diamonds and pearls….. That’s the true beauty of being a true muslimah…………..

The beauty of a true Muslimah,
Is reflected thru her soul

Flowing with passion thru her eyes,
Growing in love with a glowing heart,
Revealing her internal beauty thru her acts,
Overflowing with love and comfort
As her life is full of compassion

She is like the tranquil hidden pearl,
Beneath the stormy wide ocean,
Her strength is her trust,
Her glamour is her modesty,
Her dignity is preserved,
Fearing Allah all the time
Living a life seeking Allah’s Redho and Love

Her aura of beauty is felt within
As she flourishes the lives of those she touches
With warmth and kindness
Her heart glowing with patience
As she nourishes the lives of those she touches
With understanding, sympathy and kindness
Her eyes glowing with love
As she binds hearts together
With her true beauty of sisterly love
In the name of love for Allah

“And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, or their brothers’ sons or their sisters’ sons, or their women or the servants whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex, and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O you Believers, turn you all together towards Allah, that you may attain Bliss.” (Al Quran 24:31).

In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

O’ Muslim! Make Your Gaze Lower….

As temperatures soar and sweat pours down our faces, it is essential to remember this:

protect your eyes, and that does not mean wearing sunglasses, it means to lower our gaze – be careful of our glances..!!

In our culture today, as the temperature increases, so does the amount of exposed skin on people’s bodies. Although this is very distressing and disturbing, it has become a fact of life. In fact, those of us, especially our sisters wearing Hijab, who cover to guard their modesty are seen as strange…

It is in this instance, surrounded by half-naked people, that we must have the courage to follow the command of Allah and His Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) and lower our gazes.

Allah says:

“Do not go near fornication and adultery, it is an abomination and an evil way.”

(Quran 17:32).

This sin is so hateful in the sight of Our Lord, that He commanded us to not even go near it. Despite what anyone may say, looking upon that which one is not supposed to is going near adultery. For an illicit affair begins with a lustful glance. Allah wishes for us not to commit this ugly sin, and thus He commands us to lower our gazes:

“Tell the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that will make far greater purity for them; And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do. And tell the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty.” (Quran 24:30-31).

Lowering the gaze does not mean keeping our eyes constantly on the ground and not looking up at all. It is turning our faces away when we see a less-than-decently- dressed woman or man walking on the street in the middle of the day or at anytime.

THE ADULTERY OF THE EYES

The Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) further explained to us Allah’s command. Abu Hurayrah (r.a.) narrated that the Prophet (s.a.w.) said,

“(the adultery of the eyes is looking (at [that] which is not allowed)” (Bukhari, Muslim).

Also, on the authority of Jurayr (r.a.) who said, “I asked the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) about accidentally looking at something that is not allowed and he said, “Turn your eyes away.” (Muslim).

In another Hadith on the authority of Abu Sa’eed, (r.a.) the Prophet (s.a.w.) said,

“A man should not look at the Awrah of another man, and the woman should not look at the Awrah of another woman.” (Muslim).

Thus, our Prophet (s.a.w.) even instructed us to lower our gaze when looking at members of the same gender in some cases.

LOWERING FOR THE OTHERS’ NAKEDNESS

One common mistake is to think that lowering our gaze is only required upon encountering nakedness and indecency “in the flesh” or in person. Lowering our gaze must also be practiced when watching a film or television program replete with nakedness and intimate scenes of couples (actually, we should try to avoid watching such types of programs, period).

SEEK REFUGE OF ALLAH

Never underestimate the power of Dua.”

Sometimes, despite avoiding certain places where you are more likely to encounter an improperly dressed person, you may find someone walking on the street going to the beach or the park who decided to get ready for suntanning or swimming beforehand.

In these cases, lowering the gaze may be even harder. You weren’t expecting it, so you didn’t mentally prepare yourself.

If you feel overwhelmed, one suggested Dua to read is:

“Aouzo billahis Sami ‘il Aleem minash Shaytan ir Rajeem” (see Quran 41:36 for more information) .

A translation of this is: “I seek the refuge of Allah who is the Hearer and Who is the Knower from the Shaytan the accursed.”

In general, seek refuge in Allah. It has also been suggested to say “La hawla wa la Quwwata illa billah” (there is no power except with Allah). If we sincerely make Dua, Insha Allah, we can succeed in turning our eyes away.

LOWERING THE GAZE DOESN’T MEAN BEING ANTISOCIAL

But lowering our gaze does not mean being rude or antisocial.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon you) used to sit in gatherings for spreading Islam..

JOIN – DEBATE – PARTICIPATE – GATHER – SPREAD THE WORDS OF ALLAH

However, this requires faith, self-control and discipline. This must never be used as an opportunity to indulge in these sins.

THE GAZE IS A PART OF A MUSLIM’S CHARACTER

A Muslim is decent and pure. This means all of his or her body must be decent and pure. A natural consequence of this is lowering the gaze.

Allah tells us: “O you who believe! Do not follow Satan’s footsteps: if any will follow the footsteps of Satan, he will command what is shameful and wrong…” (Quran: 24:21).

Looking at another man or woman in an indecent manner is following in Satan’s footsteps. It all begins with a lustful glance. Such a glance leads to lustful talk and flirting, then meeting and we are all aware of what comes next.

Let us stop Satan in his tracks and lower our gaze.

Let us start today. Yes, it is very difficult and it takes discipline and faith.

Yet, whenever we struggle to please Allah, He will reward us several times over in this life and the next.

May Allah guide all to true path..

Ameen

Have you ever looked on the internet for articles on Muslim women and everything that you saw was negative?

* Honor killings
* Oppression of women
* Beheadings of women
* Hijab is oppressive
* Muslimahs are docile
* Women have no voice in Islam
* Looking beyond the veil

Why is it that society only sees negativity when it comes to Muslimahs? Why are we not seen as contributors to society? Why are there so few Muslim women who speak out about REAL issues in Islam? Why is it that there is a negative connotation anytime you mention a Muslim woman???

Today I found in a website statement of a womens who left Islam says,

Ms Wafa Sultan says, “Now in America, I enjoy freedom. I can now talk with a male member of my next door neighbour without being convicted of committing adultery.

She is the one who is involve in Insulting Islam today time ..

Its YOU,Yes,only YOU,who can save urself from those punishments.

I know many females will ignore or ask Why i’m not saying for brothers….why i’m not saying to brothers to remove there own pictures.to them I want to ask just this…

Will you say same thing to Allah ? Why he is not punishing to boys…or Will any boy come and say ,Please Allah , Forgive her ,Punish me… she uploaded pictures becoz I did..so Punish me,not her ??

I hope you will get your answer…by your self….by giving me such excuses you are creating problem for your self,not for me.There is a Hadith saying In hell females are more than males.do you want to be part of those females……and Indeed I have Message for Brothers also… 🙂

My Dear Sisters,

remember this and try to understand your importance…

Everything that Allah made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to.Tell me Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground covered and protected.

Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean covered up and protected in a beautiful shell. Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine,covered over with layers and layers of rock. You’ve got to work hard to get to them.

Your body,beauty is sacred. You’re far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.

the most beloved of Allah in all His creation is the Muslim girl who wears the Hijab.
hear it does not mean only cloth…hijab in everything,hide her beauty from others.

I’m requesting you so that you are protected from harm, injury and from collecting sins and get saved from fire of hell.

I hope you will Understand My request and Its Importance and will remove your pictures,its not an Order,Its a request from Brother In Islam…

I Pray that May Allah guide sisters on right path,

May Allah protect sisters from evils and there evil acts.
Ameen!

In Search of the Body Beautiful….

hijabi03There seems no limit nowadays to the extent that women (and men) are prepared to go to for that ‘perfect look’. Forget false eyelashes and wigs, we are now talking scalpels, implants and liposuction!

Cosmetic surgery amongst film actresses has been commonplace for quite some time now, but these days, we wouldn’t be too hard pressed to find ordinary women on the street who are more plastic than real! Indeed, in some circles, having multiple facelifts has become a status symbol: the more you have, the higher you are in the status rankings.

If questioned whether cosmetic surgery was Islamically correct or not, then without doubt, most Muslims would instinctively respond by saying that it isn’t, for the simple reason that it would be interfering with Allah’s creation. And certainly, this would be the correct response. [Scholars have noted several exceptions to this general rule if there is a genuine medical need for it.]

The companion, Ibn Mas’ood radiaIaahu ‘anhu, once said (quoting what he had heard the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam say):

Allah has cursed the tattooers and those who have themselves tattooed, and those women who have their teeth filed for beauty and those who have their [facial] hair plucked and thus alter Allah’s creation.

A woman remarked, “What’s all this?” So Ibn Mas’ood – radiAllahu ‘anhu -said: “Should I not curse one whom Allah’s Messenger cursed? And it is in the Book of Allah.” She said: “I have read the Qur’an from cover to cover but I did not find that in it.” He replied: “If you had read it thoroughly you would have found it.

Allah says:

Whatever the Messenger gives you take it; and whatever he has forbidden, refrain from it. [Qur’an ul-Hashr (59):7]”

So the Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam forbade women from performing these three practices which the women commonly did for the sake of beauty in those days – seemingly ‘insignificant’ practices for which they would incur the curse of Allah.

And this forbiddance isn’t just restricted to the procedures mentioned in the hadeeth.

Because Allah says in more general terms in His Book:

So set your face truly to the faith, Allah’s handiwork according to the pattern on which He has made mankind; [Let there be] no change in the creation of Allah. [Qur’an Ar-Room (30):30].

Therefore, it is obligatory for us to accept the creation of Allah as it is, not making any alterations to it. More importantly though, it is also obligatory for us to believe that all of Allah’s creation is beautiful, because Allah, the Khaaliq (Creator) does not create anything except with beauty and perfection, which is why He says to mankind:

You can see no fault in the creation of Ar-Rahmaan [the Most Merciful]. Then look again: Can you see any rifts? Then look – again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out. [Qur’an Al-MuIk (67): 3-4].

This may all sound quite strange when we consider how often we hear women complaining about their appearance. In fact, it is estimated that over half of the Western women today actually perceive themselves to be ugly. In addition, surveys show that nearly all women feel under pressure to “look good”.

As a result, the quest for beauty has become a serious preoccupation for many women. Open up any women’s magazine and you will not fail to find a single one which doesn’t contain tips on how to ‘look good”, or which don’t contain huge advertisements promoting new creams that halt the aging process or concealers to hide wrinkles etc.

Beauty today is big business. Beauty contests are very profitable and – contrary to popular belief – more are spawned every year. The cosmetics market is a multi-billion dollar industry; the demand for cosmetic surgery is growing at a tremendous rate. All three industries promote the same notions of beauty that woman everywhere are expected to meet: mainly a white, European, “Barbie-doll” like standard. The pressures on women to conform to these standards are enormous and few are able to withstand them.

The fact is that Western women today may complain that they are not treated with equality and respect, but it is they themselves who have made it acceptable for society worldwide to see women merely as beauty-objects who are there to be ogled by the men who in turn are the (im) polite voyeurs.

When viewed in this light, we find that beauty contests are not too dissimilar to reality itself: just as the tallest, slimmest blonde girl gets the title in the beauty contest, in the real world it’s the tallest, slimmest blonde girl who gets the man!

In Islam, beauty is not just in the eye of the beholder. Beauty is in the whole of creation, because Allah – the One free of all imperfections – is the one responsible for it. And as Allah says:

Your Lord creates whatsoever He wills and chooses: no choice have they. SubhaanAllah! And far removed is He from the partners they ascribe [to Him]! [Qur’an Al-Qasas 28:68].

So it is from the wisdom of Allah that He has chosen to create some of us short, others tall, some fat, some thin, some dark-colored, some light – all are beautiful and perfect in their own right. That is why we are taught from the Sunnah, the beautiful du’aa (supplication) that the Prophet sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam would say:

‘O Allah, as You have made my appearance beautiful, likewise make my character beautiful. – (‘Allahumma kama hassanta khalaqee fa hassin khuluqee”).

As Muslims, we must believe that evil and imperfection cannot be attributed to Allah. The desire to change any aspect of ourselves means, in effect, that we are dissatisfied with Allah’s choice and His handiwork, and that there is imperfection in what He has created. Thus to say about ourselves, or anyone else, that we or they are ugly is a great sin.

This point was reinforced by the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam when he once saw the Companion, ‘Amr Ibn Fulaan Al-Ansaaree radiallahu ‘anhu, whose izaar (lower garment) was hanging low (to the ground), so he, sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, ordered that he raise it. ‘Amr made an excuse saying that he had skinny shins (i.e. he was embarrassed to show them), so the Prophet responded by saying: O ‘Amr! Verily Allah Azza wa Jal has created everything in the best form.

All this is certainly not intended to discourage women to look after themselves and adorn themselves in lawful ways (e.g. wearing nice clothes, having nicely done hair etc.). Indeed, adorning oneself is something that the wives are obliged to do for their husbands and Allah rewards the woman who pleases the husband when he looks at her. But with these tremendous pressures on women to conform to the ideals set by the marketing media, it may be hard for Muslim women to resist feeling insecure or uncomfortable about their appearance.

Consequently, many Muslim women have shed their hijabs for the sake of following fashion; Muslim women too develop inferiority complexes about themselves.

We must bear in mind that this search for the ‘body beautiful’ is, in reality, a deception from Shaytaan. Shaytaan has vowed that he will create such false desires in mankind. He has said (as stated in the Qur’an):

Surely I will arouse in them (mankind] false desires; and certainly I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah. [Qur’an An-Nisaa (4): 119].

May Allah always keep us safe from the false promises of Shaytaan, for verily Allah is the One Who guides to the Truth.
