An amazing message from Street Dawah Bangalore team
Posted by Akhi Soufyan
As received by a sister who was guided by Allah Alhamdulillah with the work of Street Dawah Bangalore.
Being born in a Hindu family I was worshipping idols since the time I was born. I’ve been hearing stories of ramayana and mahabharatha where the reincarnated god does war with people, he is helpless etc.. The characteristics of God is not all of those. God is always truthful. He doesn’t fight or does war. If there are so many God’s on earth, each one of us can pray to our god and he will make whatever we wish for successful. That is when I realised Lord exists but none of us have seen him or even know how the Lord looks like. In the meanwhile I heard the story of Christianity where it says God is there but Jesus is the son of God. And people worshipping Jesus and his mother mary instead of the true God. Later on I started believing in God as a power who knows everything. It means God exists but cannot be seen. In the meanwhile I came across a friend who once asked me, ‘why don’t u celebrate a particular festival’ I told I stopped believing in idols. That is when he told me about Islam. He was proud while telling that. He was energetic and happy about it. The concept of what was there in my mind. God exists alone and there is no one except God. He should be worshipped alone. He told me few things about prophet Mohammed(sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). He told me a story of an old lady who used to pour dirty water on him every day. The same story where one of my sister told me yesterday. Quite some more things. That is when I started liking Islam though I used to believe in God. I collected few articles of prophet(saws) and read those. Learnt small small things. Though they were small it used to make a lot of sense. Like say for example- how a woman is treated in Islam. How a woman should be. Why a woman should be like how it says in Islam. I came across few weird live examples as well. Five times prayer, Fasting, the life after life. Which is never ending and that’s the eternal life. The life which we are living now is only for sometime. We will go back to the one who created us etc. I wanted to learn Islam. I heard that we are not supposed to do prayer in our own way. There are certain steps to be followed. I wanted someone to teach me since I didn’t know anything. I was finding difficult to get to know about places where they teach for girls as I heard they don’t teach for girls of all ages and girls stop going eventually. This is
When I started observing a girl at my office. I pay her doing wudu.. I watched her for 2 days. I thought I’ll talk to her once. One day I jus started asked her if she finds time to offer namaz at office. She said yes. And later she asked me am I interested in Islam. I couldn’t deny as I was interested. I thought she’ll help me out. She did that. She added me in sdb group. And finally I’m with all the sisters out here. I hope all of u will be with me in this journey to attain more knowledge and keep me Firm with my decision. Insha allah .. For the very first time ever I went to masjid yesterday. I did wudu.. I offered namaz though I couldn’t recite the verse. I was later been given books how to go about it by one of the sister. I was taught how to offer namaz by another sister. Alhamdulillah May Allah bless both of u.. Felt as though I’m nearing Allah. Felt as though I’m carried away by my sorrows and pain. I’m in so much peace. Even if something’s bothering me I know my lord will takecare of everything. I don’t have to worry about anything hereafter. May Allah(swt) pour patience on me and keep me steadfast in my deen
About Akhi SoufyanIf you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.
