[ENDED] Books That Will Change Your Life [ENDED]

Bismillahirrahmaanirraheem…

Assalamualaikum Wr. Wb.

Alhamdulillah all praises to Allah SWT. Being in Jordan has given my husband and I so much opportunity in many aspects. When I was in Singapore, I fell in love with a book called Psychology From The Islamic Perspective authored by Dr. Aisha Utz. Few months back, a lovely friend of mine gifted me with a book titled You Can Be The Happiest Woman in The World by Dr. ‘A’id al-Qarni. MasyaAllah, I fell in love with that book too! The similarity between these two books is its PUBLISHER! From that time onwards, I bought more books from the same publisher – International Institute Publishing House (IIPH). As my husband is majoring in Hadith, he is very anal about the authenticity of ahadith (pl. for hadith) used in Islamic books but for IIPH books, Alhamdulillah he approved of them. InsyaAllah generally most of the ahadith mentioned in IIPH books are Sahih and sound.

I remembered back in Singapore, I bought Psychology From The Islamic Perspective book for $28.80. However when I entered a bookshop here in Jordan, MasyaAllah, my heart nearly stopped because I can get the same book at almost half the price! Hence, my husband and I, we want to share our joy with our Singaporean brothers and sisters! We’re hoping this could be one of the ways for us to perform da’wah, hence we are taking orders until 6th November 2014, Thursday! 

*Those who have been on this site before, you’ll realise that this time the prices are slightly higher. This is because we’re doing shipping therefore prices are inclusive of 7% GST and shipping & clearance costs.

**Allow 2-4 weeks after closing of orders for books to arrive in Singapore.

The last time we had 57 books, now we have  105 altogether with different categorization. Have fun being spoilt for choice! Heee… ^^


 Legends:

UN – Looks interesting but we have yet to read it

Jihad.

Bismillahirrahmaanirraheem…

Assalamualaikum Wr. Wb.

I was scrolling through my past posts on FB to get some ideas on what to blog (I’ve been quite sick, hence my brains are not functioning fully) and I came across this post of mine on Jihad. With the chaotic current situations that our Muslim brothers and sisters from different parts of the world are facing, most of us can’t help it but to get too emotional thinking about their fate.

As we get too concerned with our Muslim brothers and sisters, we too must be concern with ourselves. Everything that happens, is a chance for us to reflect and be better Muslims.

There are many types of jihad. But surely Jihad is to fight/struggle/strive our way through solely for Islam; doing everything for the sake of Allah SWT and willing to die in His path.

We sympathized our Muslim brothers and sisters who are going through hell on earth. But when they die as martyrs, they are already promised a place in Paradise (depending on their intentions). But us? Are we even close to the lowest level of Jannah?

Just to pray five times a day seemed so tough.
Just to cover our aurah properly seemed so hard.
Following Allah’s commands have never been tougher for us here.

Different people have different kinds of Jihad. Our Jihad is different from those people in Palestine and Syria. Our Jihad is nothing compared to theirs. Ours is Jihad of the nafs. Their is Jihad in the battlefield.

Anyways, this is a famous Hadith:

It was narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), said to his companions when they returned from a military campaign, “We have come back from the lesser Jihad to the greater Jihad.” They said, “Is there any greater Jihad than Jihad against the kuffaar?” he said, “Yes, Jihad al-nafs (Jihad against the self).”

Unfortunately, this Hadith has been declared as weak or very weak by many scholars (some even classified it as false). Think about it, how possibly being in the battlefield a lesser Jihad than being in front of a non-mahram man? The former might cause bloodshed whereas the latter you just have to lower down your gaze. Which situation will you need more courage from Allah SWT?

“Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear…” (Qur’an 2:286).

 Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas asked the Prophet SAW, “Who are the people who faced the hardest trials in their lives?” Prophet Muhammad SAW responded “The Prophets then the best of the best. Allah will test everyone according to his stage in religion. If his religion is strong, his trials will be as strong as his beliefs. However if his religion is weak, his trials will be the same. The purpose of these trials is to cleanse the Muslim from his sins.” [Sahih al-Tirmidhi]

This clearly shows that Allah will not test someone beyond his/her ability. 

So, does that mean our Iman is still very low as compared to our Muslim brothers and sisters there?
Does that mean we’re not strong enough to face whatever they’re facing?

Let’s strengthen our Iman.

May Allah protect us all. InsyaAllah.

Wallahualam.

On a lighter note, I’m visiting Singapore soon, InsyaAllah! After 7 months being away from my home country… Phew. Alhamdulillah throughout my journey here, sharing my experiences on wordpress, I’ve build some rapport with some Muslimat who also wish to improve together with me. Since I’ll be going to Singapore for a short visit, I wish to hold a Heart-to-Heart Talk (HTHT) session soon! Tentatively it would be on 31st August 2014, Sunday morning.

As I’m still quite new to this kind of event, I’ll be taking it slow and will only call out to 20 Muslimat. Also, I wish to hear everyone’s voice and so that everyone can have the opportunity to share too. In other words, I wish to make it an intimate session so that we can learn from one another and hence creating a support group!

InsyaAllah I’ll try to make this event free. I’m still looking for a venue, though. Not really sure where is an appropriate place to hold this event. I want it to be accessible to everyone and at the same time I would love it if we’re surrounded with trees, flowers, grasses, etc. Besides Botanic Gardens, I’m sure there are other places in Singapore with trees and flowers right? Hehe.

Hope to see you ladies soon, InsyaAllah! 😀
