It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), the wife of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no calamity that befalls a Muslim but Allaah expiates (sin) thereby, even a thorn that pricks him.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5640; Muslim, 2572.

Sunni Political Prisoners Barzan Nasrollah Zadeh and Vorya Ghaderifard, currently awaiting execution in Rajai Shahr prison, Iran.

"Barzan Nasrollah Zadeh, was shot and arrested by Iranian Intelligence agents whilst on his way home from school in 2010.He suffered a serious bullet-wound to his abdomen. Despite the severity of his injuries, he was only admitted to the local hospital for one hour, before being transferred to the Ministry of Intelligence in Sanandaj.Due to the deliberate medical negligence by the Iranian authorities, Barzan suffered permanent, life-long damage. The extent of his injuries were so severe that he lost his entire spleen.Barzan was only 17 years old at the time of his arrest. Although he was suffering from serious injuries, he was tortured mercilessly whilst in detention. He was held in solitary confinement for 18 months.Due to his young age, the interrogators also psychologically tormented him by forcing him to watch the torture of other detainees in the Intelligence Agency.Under intense physical and psychological pressure, he was forced to make a forced video ‘confession’, where he ‘admitted’ that he had been in contact with Salafi groups.It was for this ‘crime’ that he and two other men, Farshid Nasseri and Timor Naderi Zadeh, were sentenced to death for ‘Moharabeh’ (enmity against the state).Barzan was still in education when he was arrested, and although he was young, he was active in teaching people about Sunni Islam. Those who actively propagate Sunni teachings in the Shia-dominated Iran face persecution and imprisonment. Many prominent Sunni activists and scholars have been imprisoned and, especially those who criticize the regime, many have been executed.http://supportmybrothers.weebly.com/1/post/2013/11/barzan-nasrollah-zadeh-awaiting-execution-iran.html

British Children Convert to Islam
According to several studies conducted in Britain, the number of Muslims in the UK has increased by 37% over the last six years, while the number of mosques has reached 1,500, Al Jazeera reported on Saturday.
With hundreds of British people converting to Islam, the British authorities recently confirmed that the occurrence of conversion is more common among British prisoners and students.
During a tour to Islamic centers, Al Jazeera net has reported that some of the children who converted to Islam are originally from Brazil, Luxembourg, Panama, and Sweden.
During Ramadan last year, Alexandra, the daughter of Tony Blair’s sister-in-law, converted to Islam at age 12.
“Thanks to my mother who took me to conferences I came to know Islam. Converting to Islam has given me much tranquility and soulful satisfaction, ” Alexander said in an interview.
“Islam has changed my life for the better unlike before,” Alexander added.
Aged 14, George, originally from Sweden, for his part, converted to Islam after reading about Islam and identifying with Muslim families in London.
Referring to the biased way and sensational way in which Western media portrays Islam, George said this was part of his initial motivation to study about Islam. “What is all this controversy about Islam for?” George asked his father.
“George’s curiosity to learn about Islam and his love for call prayers has led him to embrace Islam,” Abdellah, George’s close friend, said.
Upon embracing Islam, British converts admitted that they felt inside a deep breath of relief and happiness.
According to the British authorities, the emotional, soulful void felt by the British youth is the principal motive behind seeking Islam as propeller for lasting happiness.

Ukraine: This is the Bakhchysaray Masjid in the Crimean region, which is now all over the news for the possibility of a Russian-Ukranian war!

What many don’t know was that this was a Muslim majority region under the Ottoman empire, and it was the one responsible for collecting the Jizyah from the Russians for several centuries. 

However, in the last century, the Soviet has practiced ethnic cleansing against the Crimean Muslims under the false accusation that they were spies for the Germans, so they mass murdered and mass deported millions to Central Asia, resulting in only 20% of the region being Muslims today, about 400,000, and if things escalate, they will have no choice but to be part of this horror all over again, may Allah protect them and protect people from the trials of war!

I don’t know, but I’m so weak.

Why do you say such thing my dear?

Is it because you failed an exam? Is it because you can’t compete with the others? Or is it because you are heart broken for the loss of someone dear to you?

My dear brother and sister, not because there is a tear falling from your eyes you can consider yourself weak already.

Crying isn’t a sign of weakness, actually people who Allaah Azza Wa Jall have soften their hearts, they are easily touched and moved to the extent that tears fall from their eyes.

Crying is a form of relief and mercy from Allaah Azza Wa Jall, please do not mistaken it to some sign or act of weakness. It is a form of act that needs no explanation.

When we are hurt, broken and all these things what do we usually do? Cry? Overthink? and then what? Some don’t even move on, they stay still. 

If you are in a phase wherein you have lost someone, a father a mother or a close friend or even your boyfriend or someone, then remember the pain that the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum went through when our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam who was loved by them more than their own parents died.

Great men such as Umar Ibn Al Khattab Radiyallahu Anhu was in chaos, like a madman with his sword threatening anyone who dared tell him Muhammad Sallalalhu Alaihi Wassalaam died, a man praised by Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam for his modesty and love for Islam, ‘Uthmaan Ibn Al Affaan Radiyallahu Anhu who stayed still, immovable that others thought he has lost his voice on that very day, or the warrior that was Ali Ibn Abi Talib Radiyallahu Anhu who at that time was in so much shock that he remained like that for two days, does your pain even come to this level of pain they have?

But what made them survive such tragedy? What made them move on? 

Yes, it was because they had Allaah Azza Wa Jall. They CHOSE to recognize that the One dwelling in their hearts is the One who is the Most Powerful!

And look how Allaah Azza Wa Jall comforted them, they became men whom lead the Mu’mineen! Great men who fought for the sake of Allaah Azza Wa Jall. How can someone fight and lead the way they did if it was not for Allaah Azza Wa Jall?

You’ve lost someone yet you’re still here breathing through the mercy of Allaah Azza Wa Jall. 

What hardens the heart is when you try not to recognize who really dwells in your heart, it is also when you try to put or attach someone else in His place. Astagfirullaah.

You are strong in many ways, because Allaah Azza Wa Jall never puts you in a situation that you cannot handle, when you are there know that you will be guided by Him just have the faith, that’s what He wants, Allaah Azza Wa Jall loves it when we call upon Him. 

Realize that Allaah Azza Wa Jall gifted you with such a strong weapon, your heart, He gifted something that will constantly remind you of His Mercy that He never left you nor will He ever do. 

Rememeber, the heart doesn’t beat tic toc or bla bla it says Rubb Rubb.
_____

and we pray that Allaah Azza Wa Jall forgive us our sins for all the time that we forgot or intended to replace Him in our hearts.Amin
