Project Collaboration: Stories of the Sahaba Assalamu’alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barkatuhu, 
Before you read this blog entry, i know many had read this but i ask you & i need you on this case to compose yourself, concentrate and as you read, put yourself inside the story so you get the feel of this story. in sha Allaah.
Ready? Bismillaah.

Imagine this scene:
"MUHAMMAD ﷺ HAS DIED"
- this news had been hovering around the town, from one companion to another, imagine the shock, the pain, the grief of losing someone who is most beloved to you, more than your wife/husband or even than your own parents?
When this news reached 'Umar Ibn Al Khattab Radiyallahu Anhu, he was in such grief that he could not bear the shock that he stood with his sword in his hand, confused and bewildered. Seeing this, ‘Uthmaan Ibn Affaan Radiyallahu Anhu was stunned on such lost that he could not utter a single word even until the next day and then 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib Radiyallahu Anhu couldn't bear it as well, that it made him still and motionless.
Imagine the tragedy of this day, the dark atmosphere, the cries, the pain, the sorrow, that wherever you look, you see great companions at grief, people you see as strong, now at their weakest. subhan’Allaah.
After all the chaos that this news brought, with the love of Abu Bakr As Sidiqq Radiyallahu Anhu for Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi wassalaam, he was the only one who stood firm and maintained composure. He calmly entered the house of Muhammad sallallahu allaihi wassalaam, kissed his forehead and went out and said:
"Whoso worshipped Muhammad ﷺ  let him know that Muhammad is no more, and whoso worshipped Allaah  Azza Wa Jall should know that Allaah  Azza Wa Jall is Ever Living and Eternal.”
then recited:
"Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful." [3:144]
-these were the very words that gave the bitter truth to them & assuring comfort that made them firmer in their faith- that Allaah Azza Wa Jall is Al Haay, The Ever Living.
______
Subhan’Allaah reminisce & imagine this day.
Wallah, putting in mind the scene of this breaks hearts, indeed this day was the greatest tragedy that the believers of Islaam, the Muslims and the humanity went through.
So take heed people, no Muhammad sallallahu Alaihi wassalaam will come back to put us back into the right path, because He had shown and taught us this right path that we all are looking for. He has delivered and spread Islaam to the hearts of all of us, when will we realize this gift of Mercy?
How can you not have tears in your eyes, when you know that Allaah Azza Wa Jall out of His Abundant Mercy and Love for us, chose the best of His Creations to embody this gift, showcase and deliver to us all?
Wallah, how can you say Allaah Azza Wa jall doesn’t love you? Why just because you are facing a hardship now? Please, know that your sufferings now was not even close to the sufferings that Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wassalaam went through, even not close to how the Sahabah did as well.
My brother and sister in Islam, if there was something that will make your eyes cry just by hearing it’s story, it should be this story not the love stories you hear and watch on the cinemas or televisions, if not this then by Allaah Azza Wa Jall, reflect from the state of imaan you have right now, then ask yourself, how have you been doing on pleasing Allaah Azza Wa Jall?
We think so much of this dunya, we please people so much and forget to please the One who deserves all our time, effort and love, Allaah Azza Wa Jall. You, who calls himself a Muslim, does everything in this world to place himself on a status that people will recognize him but forgets to do his deeds that will place him into a status that will make Allaah Azza Wa Jall would recognize him on the Promised Day.
How sad and true is this! Astagfirullaah.
Dear soul. you were made perfectly by Allaah Azza Wa Jall,  placing every organ and part of your body in it’s best positions and made it  functioning well, He made this religion perfect, and He made his Best one of His to deliver this Best Gift to all mankind. 
If you think that you are going astray then LISTEN, you hear the adhan, 5 times a day, everyday He calls you back, wallah, Allaah Azza Wa Jall, calls you back… Come to Salaah, Come to Success, Allahu’akbar! Subhan’Allaah. 
Do not cover your ears, Allaah Azza Wa Jall never gets tired, but is it not a shame that He doesn’t when you, who is loved by Him, don’t even want to try?
______
and we pray that Allaah Azza Wa Jall soften our hearts everytime we hear and read the stories of the Prophets, Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wassalaam, the stories of the sahabah, the great scholars and inspirational stories of Muslims on how they found back their faiths. May Allaah Azza Wa jall with His Greatness, fill our hearts with the generosity of learning and sharing what we have learnt. 
Amin

DONATE TODAY, SUPPORT OUR BROTHERS!

The oppression in Syria continues.

Men, women and children continue to be murdered. Homes, clinics, hospitals and schools continue to be bombed. The sanctity and honor of Muslims continue to be violated.

Families continue to be butchered by militia, illegally detained and tortured. Their wounded continue to die slow deaths and their dead continue to remain unburied.

Over 100,000 have been martyred. Hundreds every day, murdered in cold blood, continue to add to this tally.

Whatever one can say to describe the suffering that has taken place, it has been more than this.

Is the Ummah of Muhammad (peace upon him) not like a single body? Should we not feel what they feel? Let’s give a little of what we have for the sake of Allah.

The fear of Allah ‘azza wajjal should drive us to action. We cannot remain idle when our widowed mothers and orphaned children are being butchered and, surrounded by the enemies of Allah.

Some Practical Steps to Waking Up For Fajr
There are many different techniques to try to wake up for Fajr.  They vary from person to person, depending on what prevents a person from waking up.
Physical Preparations
There are various physical preparations:
1) winding down before bed and sleeping early, 2) setting multiple alarms out of one’s immediate reach, 3) simplifying one’s bedding, 4) drinking ample water so one is forced to the washroom, or 5)having a family member or friend wake you up when they rise.  These are some of the main suggestions, of which sleeping early is perhaps the most common remedy.
Mental Preparations
Then, there are mental preparations:
1) before bed, visualizing oneself rising, washing and praying, 2) telling the mind with firm resolve before bed that there is an important appointment at Fajr that one must attend [with Allah], or 3) warning the mind beforehand that the body will indeed be tempted to close its eyes “for just a few more minutes” when the alarm rings- and not to give in to it.
Spiritual PreparationsFinally, there are the spiritual preparations:
1) filling the heart with the importance and love for praying Fajr and the fear of missing it, 2) begging Allah Most High before bed for the ability to wake up the following morning, 3) a feeling deep-seated regret and sadness if one misses it and immediately making it up, and 4) trying to avoid other major sins in one’s life and repenting from them to try to gain divine assistance [tawfiq].
If one accidentally misses Fajr however, while they should feel regretful, they should never feel despair and hopelessness such that they feel dissuaded from trying to wake up the next morning, since it is a sign that they were relying on themselves, and not on Allah Most High as they should be.
The Reality of Fajr
Few people find it hard to wake up if there is a plane to catch the next morning, or a lucrative job interview.  This is because we are so desirous to take that trip or get that job, so our eyes open with vigor when the alarm rings.  Some people might awaken even before the alarm, due to their anticipation.
The only reason this does not happen as often for Fajr is because we haven’t attached the same importance to the Hereafter as we have attached to our worldly lives.  Our awe and sense of duty to Allah Most High might be weaker than our desire for the ephemeral things around us.
Those who are attached to Allah, however, see Fajr as more important than the rest of the day’s affairs put together, and so they find it easy to rise to worship their Lord, in submission and gratitude.  They then find peace from this, which spurs them to rise again, in a positive cycle.  Thus, its about breaking bad cycles and establishing good ones.
May Allah Most High make us all among those who rise and pray Fajr easily and consistently, out of submission and gratitude. - Abdullah Anik Misrawww.lionfofAllah.com

The Virtues Of Reciting Surah Kahf On Jumu’ah
 Abud-Darda’ (رضي الله عنه) reported: The Messenger of Allah (salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever commits to memory the first ten Ayat of the Surat Al-Kahf, will be protected from (the trial of) Ad-Dajjal (Antichrist).” [Muslim]
In another narration, the Messenger of Allah (salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “(Whoever commits to memory) the last ten Ayat of Surat Al-Kahf, he will be protected from (the trial of) Ad-Dajjal (Antichrist).”
Ad-Dajjal will appear sometime before Yaum-ul-Qiyamah. Allah, the Almighty will give him some supernatural powers the manifestation of which will shake the faith of many people. For this reason, this will be a serious trial. All Prophets (alayhimus-sallam) warned their people against him. Our Prophet (salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) also warned us against him and ordered us to guard ourselves from it and strictly advised us to seek Refuge of Allah against it.
It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنهما) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (salallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah (Friday), a light will shine for him from beneath his feet to the clouds of the sky, which will shine for him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will be forgiven (his sins) between the two Fridays.’” [Al-Mundhiri رحمة اللہ علیه said, this was narrated by Abu Bakr ibn Mardawayh رحمة اللہ علیه in his Tafseer, with an isnaad with which there was nothing wrong]
From Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (رضي الله عنه), who said: “Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the night of Jumu’ah (Friday), will have a light that will stretch between him and the Ancient House (the Ka’bah).” [Narrated by al-Daarimi, 3407]
“Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah (Friday), will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next.” [Narrated by al-Haakim, 2/399; al-Bayhaqi, 3/249. Ibn Hajar said in Takhreej al-Adhkaar that this is a hasan hadeeth, and he said, this is the strongest report that has been narrated concerning reading Soorat al-Kahf. See: Fayd al-Qadeer, 6/198]
The soorah may be read during the night or the day of Jumu’ah. The night of Jumu’ah starts from sunset on Thursday, and the day of Jumu’ah ends at sunset. Therefore the time for reading this soorah extends from sunset on Thursday to sunset on Friday.
Al-Mannaawi رحمة اللہ علیه said: Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar رحمة اللہ علیه said in his Amaali: “In some reports it says ‘the day of Jumu’ah’ and in some reports it says ‘the night of Jumu’ah’. They may be reconciled by saying that what is meant is the day which includes the night and vice versa.” (Fayd al-Qadeer, 6/199)
Al-Mannaawi also said: “It is recommended to read it during the day or night of Jumu’ah, as al-Shaafa’i (rahmatullahi alaih) stated.” (Fayd al-Qadeer, 6/198)
It is recommended to recite Surat al-Kahf completely the night before Friday, and it is also recommended to do so Friday itself, before Maghrib time. Ibn Abidin said, And it is best to do so early on Friday, in order to rush to the good and to avoid forgetting. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar, Bab al-Jumu`ah]
