In December of 2015 I found out that my wife was pregnant and we were only married for a couple of months and I was struggling to find work. The previous job I had, they closed the position I was hired for. I was stressed and worried what was going to happen next. My wife and I were living with my parents. Some people would say we made a bad decision planning a kid without a stable income. My wife a few days after we got married came back with me to Toronto from the state of New York with nothing. When I mean nothing, I literally mean it. All she had was the clothes on her back and the mahr(gift) I gave her. It’s not like this battle was new to us and we strive with challenges like this. I felt bad for putting my wife in a situation like this but she always reminded me that I am doing my best and Allah is Ar-Razzaq (the provider).
Every night starting December of 2015, when we found out about her pregnancy, I woke up a half hour before fajr and prayed tahajjud. Making duaa (supplication) with tears falling from my cheeks asking for a change. Life was hard, unpredictable and hectic. I didn’t ask my parents for a penny to help us and I’ve alwaaaaaaaays been that way. They would offer to help but I’d refuse because my wife is my responsibility and not theirs. They were already doing so much by letting us stay. Months would go by and I’d still wake up in the middle of the night, half hour before fajr to pray tahajjud and beg Allah to change my situation. I was putting in the effort every single day! Applying to jobs, dropping off applications, going to job agencies and nothing! My wife would look at me and would see the stress on my face, on my body, the way I slept at night. It was worrisome for her but not once did she yell at me or tell me if you don’t find a job, I am leaving you! She constantly encouraged me and told me, it’s okay, Allah knows best and He is the best of planners. You are doing an amazing job! Allah see’s you are trying. It was April 2016 and all I had was $1.07 in my bank account. You read that right. I was damn near broke! With a baby on the way in 4 months, married, I didn’t know where to turn. I wanted to give up praying tahajjud because I felt that nothing was happening and I am doomed! I didn’t give up! I kept waking up every single day until May 2016, that’s when things changed.
One morning in May 2016 my duaas (supplication) were answered. The weight on my shoulders were lifted and every single worry I had was gone. Finally got a job and life changed! My duaa(supplication) was answered. For that particular job I was making duaa (supplication) for 5 years. I was persistent. I never gave up! Today, our daughter is two and we also have a 10 month old son, alhamdulilah!
One advice I can give you all is that Allah’s promise is true! Rely on Him and Insha’Allah (if Allah wills) your situation can change. Allah wants you to turn to Him in good and bad situations and to be always be thankful and know your duaas(supplications) aren’t going unheard.
People think marriage is a burden but it isn’t. It’s a beautiful blessing. It comes with so much that is unexpected because Allah said:
“And marry those among you who are single (male and female). If they be poor, Allah will enrich them out of His bounty.” [Surah Nur, 32]
I am proof of this struggle. Not because of so called “bad” decisions. No! The marriage, baby and no job was the will of Allah and His way of testing me by wanting me to turn him and Allah is the best of planners. Life is written and where you turn to and how you turn to can write the rest of your life out. In the end, as Muslims we know what we were created for and that is to please Allah. Insha’Allah we do our best in pleasing Him because success is only from Him and Him alone.
Insha’Allah this post encourages many of to never give up in life and continue to be ambitious towards your goals! Wake up before fajr, 10, 20, 30 mins before and ask Allah to guide to the straight path and to open doors in ways that is pleasing to Him, to help you become successful in this life and the hereafter.

I know you await the day you to fulfill half of your deen (religion). You’ve heard it over and over again, get married, start a life but by the will of Allah, it hasn’t happened yet. I know you are losing hope because people are telling you you are getting old or “you are getting past your expiry date.” They also say to you, who will marry you if you get any older? Do they not know that our beloved mother, Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her) married our Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him) at the age of 40? So, how could you listen to such falsehood? How could you lose hope? Do you not see that Allah says in Surah An Naba: “And we created you in pairs” [78:8] Do you not see that Allah has set aside someone for you? Why do you lose hope? Is it because your friends are getting married and you feel stranded? Do you think you’ll never be loved or no one will marry you? That is far from true. Hopeful potentials never worked out? Alhamdulilah (thanks to Allah), know that Allah protected you from a trial or tribulation that could have ruined you. You will not expire like milk nor will you die lonely.
Have hope in Allah, make du’aa and be patient, the individual Allah has saved for you will always be there. Allah has written our lives in the womb our of mothers, so just sit and relax, it’ll happen when its meant to be. Don’t be desperate and ruin your life by marrying anybody. Know that you as a Muslim should look for an individual with good Islamic qualities and characteristics. Does their best to follow Islam to the best of their abilities. Money isn’t everything. Good looks isn’t everything but the deen (religion) is everything. It is your ticket to jannah (heaven).
Don’t be hopeless but be hopeful. Have faith in Allah and know your du’aa (supplications) are not going unheard. Allah heard and accepted Prophet Yunus (peace be upon him) du’aa (supplication) from the belly of the whale, so what makes you think yours wont be fulfilled? It is only a matter of time but for now, smile and enjoy life. Take it one day at a time. Your marriage will happen when Allah wills for it no matter what others say, you will get married one day, insha’Allah.

Assalamwalikhum (peace be upon you)
Alhamdulilah (thanks to Allah), we have reached another blessed month of Ramadan. On many of our Ramadan timetables there is a du’aa that has been passed around for years as the correct du’aa to break your fast. I have recited it for years, you have and so have many of our family members and friends. The du’aa, “Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa ‘ala rizq-ika aftarthu” (O Allah! I fasted for You and I believe in You and I break my fast with Your sustenance). Did you know this hadith is weak? Yes, the du’aa printed on Ramadan timetables every year, that we recite is actually from a hadith that is weak, which has been graded weak by Sheikh Al-Albaani (may Allah have mercy upon him). I bet you didn’t know there is another du’aa that you recite and you’ve probably never come across before and this du’aa is authentic! The correct du’aa to recite is: Dhahaba al-zama’ wa abtalat al-‘urooq wa thabata al-ajr in sha Allaah (Thirst is gone, the veins are moistened and the reward is certain if Allaah wills).” [Abu Dawood]
May Allah make this Ramadan easy for us and keep us on the straight path
Asalamwalikhum my Muslim brothers and sisters. Tonight is supposedly a night. A blessed night where many Muslims from around the world will gather and sit in the remembrance of Allah subhanawatala. Some will fast through out the day. Some will read Qur’an. Some will gather in the masajids and listen to lectures about this blessed night.
Sadly, many Muslims neglect the authentic narrations from the Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him) and follow the unauthentic ones. Shab-E-Bharat is one of them. All the hadiths that are mentioned about this night are based on weak hadith. There is not a single, not one authentic narration from the Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him) about this night. Even after there is an overwhelming proof from the scholars of Islam, there are those who reject it and continously to follow blindly with these innovations.
I ask you to comp template this. Has the Messenger of Allah left out anything in this religion of Islaam? Has he not told his companions something they don’t know and some how, we are the only ones that know? Of course not because they were with him day in and day out but yet, Muslims still follow their desires, the people whom they are surrounded by and follow many innovations today. Do they not know that Allah subhanawatala told us in the Qur’an that He has completed the religion? That this religion is complete and there is not a single thing left out?
Allah subhanawatala says in Surah Al-Ma’idah:
“This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed my favour upon you (O Muhammad) and have approved for you Islam as religion.”
Oh, Muslims. Why do you choose to follow blindly? Why do you choose to follow people in these innovations? Has what Allah and the Messenger of Allah not enough for you? Do you not know that every single innovation is misguidance and every single of them is in the hell fire? The Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him) didn’t say some innovations, he didn’t say a few innovations, he said every single one of them.
Wake up Muslims!!! This religion is complete and to follow it the way the Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him), his companions, we need to revert back to the ways they followed it. Not the way it has been innovated by many people today.
Allah says in Surah Al-An’am:
“If you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you from the way of Allah. They follow but conjecture and they only lie.”
