Welcome to Abdullah Musa Abdul's world

The blame is not on the one who does not accept advice. Rather, it is on the one who presents it inappropriately

In Retrospect! A poem that ends with (..ing)

Nights and days have been alternating
Years have been moving
Nations have been perishing

There was a long period of time when we were nothing
Then came a time when we started living
There will be a time when we will be dying

Sometimes our emotions know nothing other than smiling
Some other times the emotion is dominated by crying
Sometimes its a combination of a mixed-feeling

I remembered the early parts of my life when we go out playing
I remembered the peaceful ambience dominating
I remembered many faces that are now fading

What is the beauty of living?
Why should we indulge in time-wasting?
What could be the fate of those in the Graves waiting?

Once upon a time there was someone with power and authority now beneath the sod (grave) shouting
Once upon a time there was someone extremely poor now beneath the sod relaxing
Once upon a time the undertaker is being undertaking

I asked myself if everything is worth doing if Jannah is not forthcoming?
I asked myself if wealth, lineage, power is worth something?
I asked if our various quest is worth rewarding?

What could be the fate of our dead parents and loved ones in Barzakh waiting?
What will happen to us the Day the angel of death comes visiting?
What deeds are we advancing?

We came to this world crying
Our parents were smiling
Let it not be that the day we die we leave crying 

I dedicate this to all those that lost their lives in the hands of the oppressors.

Spiritual Bankruptcy

Spiritual Bankruptcy!

Any Muslim who is exposed to the reality of the hadith of Rasulullaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) recorded by Imam Muslim will be shivering down his spine.

Our Habib (Pbuh) said: "A bankrupt person among my Ummah is the one who will come on the Day of Resurrection with prayer, fasting and Zakat to his credit, but he will come having slandered someone and shed the blood of another and wrongfully consumed the wealth of a third, so (his victim) will be given some of his hasanaat (good deeds), and if his hasanaat run out before the score is settled, some of their sins will be taken and thrown onto him, and he will be thrown (headlong) into Hell."

Allaah in His inimitable style says in Suratul Hajj says: "So shun the abomination (worshipping) of idol, and shun lying speech (false statements) Q22:30

Echoing similar sentiments, Allaah says: "And follow not (O man i.e, say not, or do not or witness not) that of which you have no knowledge. Verily! The hearing, and the the sight, and the heart, of each of those of you will be questioned (by Allaah)." Q17:36

Brothers and sisters in Islam! How many times do we attribute hypocrisy to people and even scholars when we cannot defend that in front of Allaah?

How many times do we call a Muslim a Kafir when in reality we cannot defend that in front of Allaah?

How many times do we pronounce people adulterer and adulteress when in reality we've never seen them committing Zina?

How many times do we attribute homosexuality to people when in reality we have no valid Shari'ah facts?

How many times do we pass harsh judgement on people just because they differ with us in understanding?

How many times do we point an accusing finger at others when in reality they are innocent of the sins?

Before you throw up your Quranic recitation, your Tahajjud, your Zakat, your fasting to someone else who sleeps all the night on the Day of Qiyamat, be wise and stop saying things which if Allaah asks you to defend them you won't be able to.

What Rasulullaah (Pbuh) advocated for is to draw people into the fold of Islam and not drive them out of the fold of Islam.

Regarding others we only assume they are sinful but regarding ourselves we know we are sinful.

Avoid being spiritually bankrupt. May Allaah guide us.

The Raging Fire In Northern Nigeria!!!

In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. 

While we are busy with our various endeavors, scores are being killed. Yesterday, it was Lilo Village in Wonako ward of Zamfara State razed down by unknown gunmen armed to the teeth.

And now again, the abandoned people of Borno State who have been since left at the mercy of their prayers and self-defense have to repeatedly face the bitter reality of incessant bomb blasts.

I said it two years ago, that if nothing serious is done to genuinely contain this insurgency it will consume us like a wild fire.

We have to be extra vigilant and know who comes our way and who we mingle with.

Injustice and oppression at its peak, but Allaah is not asleep. Let those who wait, wait....Allaah too is waiting.

Men, women, children shot down and bombed in cold blood every hour of the day and night......43000 hours since 2009. Can you fathom the actual statistics of those killed?

Our news media has been inundated with disturbing news and yet we see nothing changing for good.

Rasulullaah (May the Peace and Blessings of Allaah be Upon Him and His Household) has asked us to repeat much of Hasbunallaahu wa ni'mal Wakeel....Allaah is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).

The ignorant fools scheming and funding this insurgency have turned a blind eye to history....soon shall they be routed and you will see them dejected.

I swear by Allaah, the perpetrators, co-conspirators, foot soldiers responsible for this carnage and mayhem will not go scot-free.

When we start valuing the lives of others regardless of color, creed, ethnicity and background we will save more lives.

We must cry to Allaah and stand firmly on our feet because the Fir'aun of yesterday killed only the boys and left the girls but the Fir'auns of today kill both the boys and the girls.

Those behind this sinister agenda are under the notion that there will be no Judgement Day hence it means nothing to them if thousands are killed.

The Day of Qiyamat will deal with Justice.

I implore one and all, that we should be patient, and turn back to Allaah in obedience and never relent in praying.

May Allaah destroy the root of all oppressors.

Echoes of Da'awah!!!

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullaahi wabarakatuh believing brothers and sisters. 

Life is riddled with obedience and disobedience. Sometimes you feel a high level of spiritual closeness to Allaah and sometimes you dine with the devil. 

In whatever circumstance we find ourselves in, we must strive our utmost to please Allaah. 

We must not shy away from our duties as Muslims and we should maintain our Islamic identity wherever we are and whoever we are.

Just as sins deprive us of closeness to Allaah they equally cause physical and emotional pains.

The ever raging problem with most of us today is that we spend time analysing the sins of others least realising how far we've deviated from the truth ourselves.

Whenever we feel we are more truthful to Allaah than others, suffice to say that we are farther away from Allaah than others.

We must recognise the fact that our closeness to Allaah is our distance from ourselves.

We must desist from sinning and equally from judging people when in reality we don't know where they stand in the Sight of Allaah and whether Allaah has actually accepted our seemingly good deeds.

We must encourage one another on the path of truth, and more so we must be willing to do what Allaah asks us to do. 

Our obedience to Allaah is a legitimate tool for erasing our sins.

Believing brothers and sisters in Islam, don't isolate Islam to a particular concept, thereby fearing Allaah in that alone and forgetting Him in other aspects.

We must seek for Allaah's pleasure in our 'Ibadah, businesses, academics, leadership, marriage, and in everything because Islam encompasses the ideal culture of humanity. 

We pray Allaah forgive our repeated sinning and we pray Allaah save us from the disgrace of this world and the Hereafter.

A Spiritual Dosage!!!

A spiritual Dosage!

Man has been inherently equipped with wickedness and nobility (reference to the 8th verse of Surat Ash-Shams), whichever one he chooses to nurture and nourish that shall dominate.

Allaah says: "Indeed he succeeds who purifies his ownself (by responding to the angelic inspiration within his soul)." 

As for he who chooses to nurture and nourish the evil and Satanic whispering within his soul, Allaah has confirmed his failure in both the world.

Indeed the true bondsmen of Allaah are those who when the inherent wickedness within their souls provokes them to club, to party, to commit Zina, to steal, to lie, to drink intoxicants, to smoke away their lives, to expose their nudity on social media, to promote obscenity, to listen to Music, to delay or abandon Salat, they instantly remember Allaah and immediately Allaah comes to their rescue and they abandon the filthy and evil thoughts. (In reference to the 201st verse of Surah Al-A'raf)

But the evil ones will not hesitate to actualize the Satanic whispering and devilish thoughts flashing through their minds.

The choice is undoubtedly ours to make, we either respond to the righteousness within us or we unleash the inherent wickedness within us.

The former choice begets Jannah and the latter choice begets Jahannam. YOU CHOOSE!
