A TIGHT CONNECTION...

‘En vérité, c'est Nous qui avons fait descendre le Coran, et c'est Nous qui en sommes gardien.’
(CORAN, 15:9)

‘Absolutely, we have revealed the reminder, and, absolutely, we will preserve it.’
(QUR’AN, 15:9)

Almost a year ago, I met this very interesting young lady at the mosque… she is French. She didn’t know any Arabic, not even the alphabets whatsoever… and despite that, she used to go to the mosque continuously… she loved to hear the Qur’an being recited, she loved the prayers,… she actually left France and her folks to live here in the U.A.E. as the veil is permitted, unlike France…and now she works here…
Anyhow, a week ago, she called me on the phone to tell me that her brother came all over from France, just to learn Arabic, to read Qur’an… Moreover, his English is almost zilch!
But yet my daddy helps him out with Arabic, & my dad doesn’t know French, and that brother doesn’t know English, and they still communicate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They still connect. And talking about connection please do read this:

I mean cummooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon!!!
We are born with Arabic in our heads, and forget to even open the Qur’an…
Please, let’s connect ourselves to Allah’s living miracle…
Let’s try harder…
What happened?
May Allah Almighty grant us the love of his book, and the deeds that are related to obeying it.
May Allah give us the inclination of creating a link and connection with Him. And may He also give us the feeling of regret and the understanding to establish a connection with Him. Aameen.

Absolutely this is true:
‘Absolutely, we have revealed the reminder, and, absolutely, we will preserve it.’
(QUR’AN, 15:9)
What happened to the ummah
Once known so well
Greatness was known
But now can u tell
Used to inspire others with our way of thinking and speech
People came from afar just to hear us teach
Yo what happened to the ummah
Once known so well
Greatness was known
But now can u tell
Mosques are empty, refrigerators are stocked
We lost our deen we feel secure
‘Cause our mansions are locked
In my teen years salah wasn’t really that tight
Now I gotta pray each one of them twice
What happened to the ummah
Once known so well
Greatness was known
But now can u tell
Brother we prefer light skinned women
While righteously maintaining our deen against racism
What happened to the ummah
Once known so well
Greatness was known But now can u tell
What happened to the ummah once known so well
Greatness was known, but now can u tell
Kids in Africa are starving – can’t afford to cry
I’ll pay interest for a car I can’t afford to buy
What happened to the ummah once known so well
Greatness was known, but now can u tell?
We used to smile at each other, with faces full of light
Now we frown at each other, we bicker and we fight
Pops in the mosque praying, kids in the streets hating
Kids on the corner selling, pops in the mosque preachin’
What happened to the ummah once known so well
Greatness was known but now can u tell?
The Quran has left out hearts stranded, hanging on out walls
6232verses, so strong
9 out of 10 of us can’t even read or write
1924 feels distant like way before Christ
Que le pasó a la maza
Como puede ser
La grandeza conocida
No la puedo ver
He visto como mi figura cae en tentación
A pesar de que la vida a sido buena con luz e ilusion
He pedido perdón por mis pecados
Tengo la cruz sobre mi cama y el diablo a mi lado
Que le pasó a la maza
Como puede serLa belleza conocida
No la puedo ver
He sentido incompetencia buscando la verdad
Todos dicen conocerla solo veo la maldad
Que le pasó a la maza
Como puede ser
La pureza conocida
No la puedo ver
IF I WAS TO FALL ON MY KNEES AND ASK YOU TO FORGIVE EVERYTHING FOR THE LORD, OUT OF LOVE, FOR THE ONE, OH OH OH... I´VE SEENAND IF U WERE TO FALL ON YA KNEES AND ASK ME THE SAMEBROTHER, DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, LETS JUST BREAK OUT OF THE DARKNESS OF IGNORANCE

Have you ever contemplated the ayaa from the Qur'an that translates to:

O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns away from his religion (Islâm), Allâh will bring another people whom He will love, and they will love Him. {Al-Ma'idah 5:54}

[5:54] O you who believe, if you revert from your religion, then GOD will substitute in your place people whom He loves and who love Him. They will be kind with the believers, stern with the disbelievers, and will strive in the cause of GOD without fear of any blame. Such is GOD's blessing; He bestows it upon whomever He wills. GOD is Bounteous, Omniscient.


MAY ALLAH STABILIZE OUR DEEN IN OUR HEARTS...AMEN
