Why most people think that to follow Islam we have to stay away from all worldly desires and needs! Most of us believe that if we have to be religious and pious we must avoid all worldly requirements and wishes! In other words we can follow one at a time, either Deen or Duniya.

There is a misunderstanding among many people that Islam is tough and a difficult religion to follow. In fact, Islam is not an ascetic religion that expects its followers to abandon the world and worship Allah all day and night in a cave.

Instead Islam forbids such tendency in behavior to develop and encourages people to interact with society and live normal lives within the boundaries set by Allah.

The End of Every Matter is Better

By: Tareq Al-Suwaidan

(قال الله تعالى (وللآخرة خير لك من الأولى
!! إن أول ما يخطر على أذهاننا في تفسير الآية أن الدار الأخرة خير لنا من الدنيا

.
..ولكن الآية تحمل معنى أوسع يقول : عاقبة كل أمر لك خير لك من أوله
ولذلك فإن بقية السورة كلها تأكيد لهذا المعنى
ألم يجدك يتيما) هذا أول الأمر (فآوى) هذا آخره)
ووجدك ضالا) هذا أوله (فهدى) هذا آخره)
ووجدك عائلا) هذا أوله)
،،فأغنى) هذا آخره)
.
, فذكر نفسك دائما أنك تتعامل مع رب كريم
من أوصافه سبحانه وتعالى أنه يختبر العبد بأول الضيق ثم لابد أن يفرّج وينتهي الأمر بالسعة
.
..لابد أن تكون الآخرة خير من الأولى في كل أقدار الله وتكون الآخرة خير من الأولى لمن رضي عن ال
(من احمد الهاشمي فرج الله عنه)

No matter how hard the media tries to project a violent, destructive, barbaric nature to anything “Islamic” and no matter how hard some extreme, misguided elements within Musim society try to take personal revenge through their faith ot commit revolutionary suicide, nobody can take away the tranquility of the Houses of Allah (Masjids) or the inner peace of a person who truly is submits to the the Creator of the heavens and the earth!!!” 

“Allahu-Akbar wa lillahil-Hamd!” Allah is greater than anything in the Universe and He, alone, deserves all Praise.” Reflect on the simple tranquility of this Masjid.
