80,000 Palestinians Cut Off From Drinking Water

‘Thousands of Palestinians have been without clean water in the occupied East al-Quds (Jerusalem) for more than 60 days, Press TV reports.
According to the report, 80,000 residents in the region have been denied access to running water by Israeli authorities.
The report says that despite calls by Palestinian residents and human rights groups for providing residents in the region with running water, the Israeli water company, Gihon, denies water to Palestinian areas, including Shuafat Refugee Camp, Ras Khamis, Ras Sh’hadeh and Dahiyat As-Salam.’

يا اخواني
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
As salaam o Alaikum !


With the month of Rajab coming upon us, hardly few days left, it's a good time to start getting prepared for the auspicious month of Ramadan.

Rajab is regarded as one of the 4 sacred months in the Islamic Calendar, referred to as: "Al-Ash-hurul hurum"

Surely, the number of months according to Allah is twelve (as written) in the Book of Allah on the day He created the heavens and the Earth, of which there are Four Sacred Months. Surah Tawbah:36

The Beloved Prophet during his sermon of his last Hajj declared:

One year consists of twelve months, of which four are sanctified months. Three of them are in sequence: Dhu’l-Qa‘dah, Dhu’l-Hijjah, Muharram, and the fourth is Rajab. Bukhari, Muslim

Our Beloved Prophet (S.A.W) made this dua upon the sighting of the moon of Rajab.
💚💚💚
" ALLAAHUMMA BAARIK LANA FII RAJAB WA SHAABAN, WA BALLIGHNAA RAMADHAAN "
💚💚💚
“O ALLAH, make the months of Rajab and Sha’ban blessed for us, and allow us to reach the month of Ramadhan (i.e. prolong our life up to Ramadhan, so that we may benefit from its merits and blessings)

Please forward this to all your friends & relatives. Let them also recite this DUA.
💚💚💚
" ALLAAHUMMA BAARIKLANAA FII RAJAB WA SHAABAN, WA BALLIGHNAA RAMADHAAN "
💚💚💚💚
Do remember me, my family & all Ummah in your precious DUA.

9 Points derived from the old workers program, Lenasia ijtima South Africa

9 Points derived from the old workers program, Lenasia ijtima South Africa - 1- We do the work for ourselves. If we keep this in mind, the feeling and benefit we got in our first chilla (40 days) we will get in 50th chilla. We are not doing for others because the promise of Allah is, That person who makes sacrifice, Allah will give "him" hidayat. Regarding hidayat of others, it is in decision of Allah.

2- As long as a fruit is attached to a tree, the value increases, it ripens, it gets sweeter. When the fruit is broken from the tree it gets rotten and becomes the food for creatures. Similarly, we must stay linked to our a'mal in our musjid to progress. Otherwise, we will get spoiled and consumed in fitnas.

3- Linked to no.1, that person who does the work for himself will be steadfast till death and that person who does work for others will get despondent if he does not see results OR if he sees results he will get proud that he did this and thus fall from the sight of Allah

4- If we don't make effort for new brothers to come out in 3 days and only workers come out, then either the jamaat will quarrel because of usool or it will become a picnic/party.

5- We are like magnets in effort. We must get such sifat that people will get attracted to us. Just as a magnet gets pulled if something is too big, we must also be accommodating and not cause any friction with any other effort.

6- When we do effort for "our" hidayat, we don't need any daleel (proof) to debate and prove anything to anybody. When we do for others, we will find faults with others and bring about disputes.

7- Example: A deer was asked how does it escape a hunting dog when it is so thin, eats less and runs slower then the dog. The answer it gave was that there was difference in intention. the deer runs for its life (no matter what the barrier or terrain is) while the dog runs for the benefit of the master. so, once again, when we do effort for our safety in Akhirah (hidaya) we will run ahead and progress in effort and if we do it for others, (if we progress) it will be very minimal

8- Just as dirty clothes are put in the washing machine, the person in charge doesn't look which clothes are more dirty or less dirty, when everything goes in machine it will get washed. Like that, we must not look at faults of people. We must create love and accommodate everybody in the effort. We must not analyze every person who wants to do this effort.

9- How people have a family doctor etc like that, there should be a family alim for our affairs"

· · · BUILD A BRIDGE NOT A FENCE · · ·

Once upon a time, two brothers who lived on adjoining farms fell into conflict. It was the first major and serious rift in their life for forty years of farming side by side, sharing farm machinery and treading labour and goods as needed without a hitch

· · ·

Then a long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding and it grew into a major difference and finally it exploded into exchange of bitter words followed by weeks of silence.

One morning there was a knock on the elder brother’s door.
He opened it to find a man with a carpenter’s toolbox. “I am looking for a few days work” he said “perhaps you would have small jobs here and there I could help with? Could I help you?

“Yes said the elder brother. “I do have a job for you. Look across the creek at that farm. That’s my neighbour, in fact my brother!
Last week there was a meadow between us. He recently took his bulldozer to the river levee and now there is a creek between us. Well, he may have done this to spite me, but I will do to him one better. See that pile of lumber by the barn>
I want you to build me a 8-foot fence so I won’t see his place or his face anymore.

The carpenter said. “I think I know the situation. Show me the nails and the post hole digger and I will be able to do a job that please you”

The elder brother had to go to town. He helped the carpenter get the materials ready and was off for the day.

The carpenter worked hard all that day, measuring, sawing and nailing. About sunset the carpenter had just finished his job.

The farmer’s eye opened wide, his jaw dropped. There was no fence there at all it was a bridge.... a bridge that stretched from one side of the creek to the other! A fine piece of work, handrails and all!

And the neighbour, his younger brother, was coming towards them, his hand outstretched.

You are quite a fellow to build this bridge after all I have said and done....

The two brothers stood at each end of the bridge, and then they met in the middle, taking each other’s hand.

They turned to see the carpenter hoist his toolbox on to his shoulder.

“No wait stay a few more days I've a lot of other projects for you,” said the older brother.

“I would love to stay on,” the carpenter said, “but I have many more bridges to build.”

( Author Unknown)

MORAL: IT IS EASY TO DIVIDE AND DISUNITE, AS THIS APPEASES THE NAFS AND EGO; HOWEVER THE TRULY ADMIRABLE PERSON IS ONE WHO BUILDS A BRIDGE AND RESTORES RELATIONSHIP DESPITE THE CHALLENGES THAT ACCOMPANY SUCH AN ACT.

it is related from shaddad bin aus (radiAllah anhu) that rasulullah salAllahu alaihi wasalm) said, “A wise man is the one who calls himself to account (and refrains from doing evil deeds) and does noble deeds to benefit him after death; and the foolish person is the one who subdues himself to his temptations and desires and seeks from Allah the fulfillment of his vain desires”. [Tirmidhi]

al-anfal: 008.072
“Indeed, those who believed and emigrated and strove with their wealth and their lives in the way of God, and those who took them in and helped them: some of these are protecting friends one of another. And those who believed but did not emigrate, you have no duty to protect them till they emigrate. And if they seek help from you in the matter of religion then it is your duty to help (them) except against a people between whom and you there is a treaty. And God is Seer of what you do”

· · · ALLAH THE MERCIFUL · · ·

Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi Allah Anhu): Allah's Apostle (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) said, "Allah says, "If My slave intends to do a bad deed then (O Angels) do not write it unless he does it; if he does it, then write it as it is, but if he refrains from doing it for My Sake, then write it as a good deed (in his account). (On the other hand) if he intends to go a good deed, but does not do it, then write a good deed (in his account), and if he does it, then write it for him (in his account) as ten good deeds up to seven-hundred times.' "

[Sahih Bukhari : Volume 9, Book 93, Number 598]

Failure is so important. We speak about success all the time. It is the ability to resist failure or use failure that often leads to greater success. I’ve met people who don’t want to try for fear of failing.”

A LAME MAN

Shaqeeq Balkhi (rahimullah) was a renowned scholar. He narrates that along the road to Makkah, he saw a frail weak man crawling on his knees. Shaqeeq Balkhi asked him: 'Where are you from?'

Lame man: 'From Samarqand'.

Shaqeeq: 'How long have you been journeying along the road?'

Lame man: 'Ten years'.

When Shaqeeq stared at him in surprise, he said: 'YA Shaqeeq! Why are you staring at me on surprise? My journey may be long and arduos, but my Talab (yearning) for Allah is drawing me near. Certainly I am weak in body, but my master is sustaining it and carrying it aloft. YA Shaqeeq, there is no surprise when The Kind Benefactor is taking along the weak slave'.
