We don’t need compliments from a guy, or recognition from a magazine to know that we’re beautiful. We know we are beautiful, we know we are queens, because our Creator told us so!

standwithpalestine:

Keep Palestinians living in Gaza in your prayers. They are looking under rubble for their loved ones or burying them all while watching the skies for their own safety.

Remember those in West Bank and present-day Israel, some of whom are living in fear of being kidnapped and burned alive, like 17-year-old Mohamed Abu Khdeir was, or attacked simply for being Palestinian. 

The above photos were taken today after family homes were pounded as Israel continued its aerial bombardment of Gaza, killing at least 15 Palestinians - including children - and wounding 100.

Never stop searching for the truth and never stop spreading it once you find it. Hell will freeze over before Western media does so it’s down to us.

I need Ramadan.
I need staying up all night.
I need iftaar at the family’s houses, no fights, just smiles.
I need suhoor with my best friend, secrets told until the athaan goes off.
I need Quran, every single day.
I need shaytaan to be away.
I really need Ramadan.

askerquestioner

Anonymous: Assalamualaikum. I'm feelin sad cause whatever efforts I put into making my brother see the beauty of Islam, it seems to be useless. We're born Muslims and yet he'd never perform Salat unless we remind him to do so. What would I do?

islamreflection:

Walaikum As’salaam,

I sincerely apologize for the late reply! :(

First off, masha’Allah it’s wonderful you’re concerned about your brother’s Akirah! :)

1. Set an example

The Noble Qur’an:

“Guard strictly the (five obligatory) prayers, especially the middle Salaat (˜Asr). And stand before Allaah with obedience.”

— Surah al-Baqarah [2:238]

People tend to follow by example, especially if your brother is younger than you. It may take some time, but if he sees you praying consistently, insha’Allah it will motivate him to do so as well. :).

2. Remind him Salah is Fard (mandatory)

The Noble Qur’an:

“What has caused you to enter Hell?” They will say: “We were not among those who prayed (Salaat).”

— Surah al-Muddaththir [74:42-43]

The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said:

“Between a man and kufr and shirk, there stands his giving up prayer.”

— Muslim

“No one keeps away from the prayer except a hypocrite who is known for his hypocrisy.”

— Muslim

3. If he delays Salah, remind him

The Noble Qur’an:

“Verily, As-Salaah (the prayer) is enjoined on the believers at fixed hours.”

— Surah al-Nisa’ [4:103]

“So woe unto those performers of Salaah (prayers). Those who delay their Salaah (prayer from their stated fixed times).”

— Surah al-Maa’oon [107:4-5]

4. Remind him Salah is for our benefit

Allah (SWT) does not need us to pray, we need Him. He is  AS-SAMAD (The Self-Sufficient, The Eternal), AL-QAYYÛM (The Self-Existing by Whom all subsist), AL-WÂJID (The Self-Sufficient, The All-Perceiving).

Salah allows us to remember our purpose, it brings peace to the heart — after all we’re speaking to The Creator Himself! :)

It’s an excellent chance to escape the Dunya and focus on what’s truly important. :)

5. Salah is also scientifically proven to have physical benefits

Please see the article here for more information.

6. Encourage him to make good friends & go to the Mosque

As per the Hadith of the Prophet (SalAllahu Alaihi wasallam):

“A good friend and a bad friend are like a perfume-seller and a blacksmith: The perfume-seller might give you some perfume as a gift, or you might buy some from him, or at least you might smell its fragrance. As for the blacksmith, he might singe your clothes, and at the very least you will breathe in the fumes of the furnace.”

— Bukhari, Muslim

Encourage him to become friends with other boys who perform Salah, and try their best to follow Islam. Insha’Allah this will have a positive influence on him. Going to the Mosque will also have a positive impact on him insha’Allah. :)

7. Remain patient and make dua

It may take some time, but if you’re persistent, insha’Allah you’ll see him make progress! Always make dua to Allah (SWT) to help your brother see the Light of Islam and for Him to grant your brother the ability to perform Salah insha’Allah.

Please also see my response to another question here for more tips, insha’Allah. :)

I hope I was able to help at least a bit insha’Allah. May Allah (SWT) bless you and your family, and may He grant your brother the ability to see the beauty of Islam and perform Salah regularly, Ameen.
