A Prophet came while people were wrapped in pride

and in the pitch-black darkness of the night of unbelief,

Whereupon he dispelled this darkness with abundant light,

and in this matter he was helped by each of those who submitted.

 ‘Abdur Rahman ibn `Awf, RadhiAllahu anhu

…Insha’Allah, may we submit to the “abundant light” and be in “illumination”, steadfastly treading the paths of guidance, as we continue to bring the essence of the birth of our Blessed Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam into our hearts…he SallAllahu alaihi wasallam so lovingly sacrificed for us, his constant concern being “Ummmati Ummati”…may we make this a time of asking ourselves what is our constant concern?…how much is the Ummah still in pitch-black darkness after all these thousands of years?…each and every one of us can make a change…make the light of the Sunnah a reality in your life…in your homes…make efforts to overflow hearts with love of our Blessed Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam…shine your light of effort for the Ummah Insha’Allah…

…and in this matter he was helped by each of those who submitted…may we all be one who submits…Ameen…beneficial reminders from Muwasala

…Juma’ah in Masjid al-Haram shared by dear Ukht K…JazakiLlahu khaira and Umrah Mabrook to all offering Umrah during this special month…may they…and the Haramain be in our special du’as Insha’Allah…


All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.  May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

    As salaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah, dear Khala. Aameen! You were in my thoughts just now, and all of a sudden that feeling of being in Medinah’s Shade was stirred. I pray that you are well, and enjoying this merry mawlid season. Duas sought and duas made. Thank Allah for your list. 🙂

      Wa’alaikumus Salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
      Dearest Iffat,
      Alhumdulillah that Du’a is a constant 🙂
      I think many experience a stirring to be in this Mubarak City of Enlightenment during this special Rabi’al Awwal, SubhanAllah. How beautiful is Allah Ta’ala’s Mercy.
      Much love and Du’as
      Wassalamu alaikum
