Gems from my Favorite Scholars

Nauman Ali Khan

Allah will intervene into our emotional states. He can give you tranquillity again; whether it’s anxiety, fear, grief, anger – whatever emotion, whatever thing that’s happened that has left you scared, Allah can remove that scar entirely.” – Nouman Ali Khan

Learn the religion to humble yourself, not to weaponize yourself. Knowledge and righteousness are not necessarily correlated

Allah created us with an innate predisposition towards doing the right thing; it’s called the fitrah. And when we violate that spiritual programming inside of us, we experience the security mechanism Allah placed inside of us: guilt. Guilt is a gift from Allah warning you that, whatever you are doing is violating your soul.

Allah wants us to be happy. Human beings can not have happiness without restriction. Because they are only going to land themselves into further trouble and end up harming themselves

If you have friends or family who are not practicing, give them your company and not your judgment. They need your patience and your love. Allah is sufficient for judgment and He subhanahu wa ta’ala is a perfect Judge. We are not.

Islam didn’t make it Haram for you to fall in love. It didn’t forbid you from wanting someone. It only guides that love so it protects you, her, your families and especially saves you from humiliation on judgment day. If you love her so much, why are you ok with letting her engage in this questionable relationship knowing full well that she will have to answer Allah just like you will. You don’t love her enough to save her from that

Forgiving someone isn’t just about doing good to another. It’s also about healing a scar in your own heart.

As a Muslim you can be part of any culture across the world as long as your deen never gets compromised. If you treat Islam as a culture then when it clashes with another culture it loses a part of it. You cannot hold on to Islam if it is only a culture to you.
