Qur’an 3:8- “Our Lord!!!! Let not our hearts deviate from the truth after You have guided us…”

We want to have more than what we need. We think that having more equals happiness. Remember the more we have, the more we worry about it.   The less we  remember to worship our Lord.  Our life will revolve around it, trying to keep our wants protected. Then we will fall short of our duties towards Allah talah.  We forget to give zakah, because we are afraid we’ll loose money, money which our Lord allow us to have. We should remember, everything we have is because of Allah subhana wa talah to have it. Nothing happens but by the will of Allah subha wa talah.

This is the reason we have to learn to live like this:

We are a guests in this world, this world is temporary is noting good to acquire here.

Learn not to attach ourselves in worldly things, living a life of modesty, don’t show off, be humble and loving to others.  Your purpose in life is to praise and worship Allah subhana wa tallah, not to praise and worship this dunya.

Centering ourselves as Muslimahs in this society, is our responsibility.  We are the first everything in our children lives.

Acquiring knowledge

gives a way to practice our religion properly. 

We are going to have many questions, and we will figure how we answer them to be successful Muslimahs in this society of wants. For a Muslimah  the questions need to be answer from an Islāmic view-point, because we are in a non-Islamic country. We are going to find in this westernized society many answers to our questions that honestly will deviate us from following our religion. For example, a Muslimahs know that they should marry, and have children; this is the order it nees to be. Well, too many of us reverts it did not happen like that. A new generation is here and we need to let them know the order given is the one that pleases Allah subhanna wa tallah. If you bring the subject to a non-believer they will say we don’t need to marry, and we don’t need a man in our lives to be complete. If we go to the Qur’an, the Injeels, and the Torah we find out that each one of them will tell you that we should seek a partner, marry, and then have children. That having a husband or wife is the correct way of living. Anything else falls short from Allah subhanna wa tallah orders. Answers to all of our questions are found in the Qur’an and books of Hadith. We have to study, in order to give the right answers to questions that might arise. Even the simple ones like, why shouldn’t women arch their eyebrows? Simple question very complicated answer.

How do we balance our lives when indeed we are influential Musliamh? How do we acquire hayya and taqwa? How do we balance our lives, status and religion? Mixing everything to a perfect equation which equals success in this life as much in the next? These are simple questions we need to answer everyday to keep grounded. 

 Points to help you find happiness

 
 Avarice and greed are fatal, and their remedy lies in the following:
1. The more we spend the more we want. Good management will save you half of your wealth
2. Do not worry too much about the future, have faith that whatever has been decreed fro you will reach you.
3. Fearing Allah, the Almighty, for Allah says

“… and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way out for him from every difficulty. And He will give him from sources he never could imagine..” Qur’an 65:2-3

4. Knowing that contentment brings of pride in being independent of means, and what greed and avarice bring of humiliation and learning from both.

5. Living by the example of the Prophet Muhammad and his companions. Contemplating the lives of the Prophet’s wives and learning about the lives of victorious Muslimahs .

6. Look at those who are worse than you in worldly terms. We need to compare ourselves with the ones that have less, learn hot to love less, and don’t get attach to worldly things.

AND LEARN:
Don’t matter how much we try  to become rich, it might never happen. Accept that you have it better than the next person.    YOU ARE A MUSLIMAH…
