  8. Assalamu alaykum brother! We need your help to raise awareness about the hijab ban in Tajikistan 🇹🇯. The government has banned wearing the hijab, and they are fining and arresting women who wear it on the streets. They have been trying for a long time to secularize the public and make them less religious. Men under 18 are not allowed to go to the mosque, teaching Tajweed is illegal, and men are not allowed to have beards. They imprison anyone who speaks out, and we don’t know what to do. Please pray for us and help spread the word!

  9. Daily Reminder: Try to supplicate this dua every single day to become a habit.

    1. Dua That Guarantees You Forgiveness (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

    Prophet Muhammad SAW (PBUH) said:

    "Whoever gets up at night and says:

    La ilaha 'illa Allaahu, wahdahu la shareeka lahu

    lahul mulku, wa lahul hamdu, wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer.

    Subhana allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaaha ila Allaah,

    wa Allaahu akbar, waLa hawla wa la quwwata illa billaah.

    There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allah Alone,

    He has no partners, He has the Dominion and for Him is all praise,

    and He is capable of all things, praise is for Him,

    and Allah is free from imperfection,

    and There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allah,

    and Allah is the Greatest,

    there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allah.

    "Then he says:

    Allaahumma aghfirlee.

    these will be heavier." These are:

    Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, 'adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi,

    wa zinatah 'arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi.

    Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with His praise,

    as many times as the number of His creatures,

    in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne

    and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words

    (for His Praise).

    This hadiths and duas that I learned are from many Islamic channels like

    MercifulServant, TheProphetsPath, The Daily Reminder, ilovUAllah, Sense Islam,

    OnePath Network and more. May Allah bless the speakers, the Islamic channel teams

    for sharing this knowledge. May Allah grant all of us Jannatul Firdous! Ameen!

    Copy it, save it, act upon it and share it. Hopefully by sharing it to others will be

    recorded by the Angels as sadaqah Jariyah.

  10. My take away is:
    1) focus on being the right person instead of on finding the right person, and
    2) remember that marriage is ultimately about achieving success in the akhirah, so that every difficulty and annoyance becomes an opportunity to level up.

  11. MashaAllah this a talk is binshmark for every couple before, and after marriage. It simplified the true message of Marriage in Islam الحمدلله Alhamdulilah "Balance is 🔑" towards unity inshaAllah 🙌 Ameen
