Knowing and learning about the tricks of the shayateen will help you greatly in achieving righteousness. Last week a sister reminded me that shaitan can come to you in all forms - that being your mother, your husband , child, and even (one that I really contemplate on) your nafs. Sometimes we think we’re that ones that want to do evil things like listen to music or look at a strange man/woman. Shaiytan is so glued to you, that you think YOU are the one that is actually wanting to do that evil deed. SubhanAllah. Don’t be tricked my brothers and sisters, do not be tricked. You’re so in tune with complying to the whisperings of Shaytan that those whisperings turn into your own thoughts and desires. May Allah protect us all.
Narrated Anas bin Malik (radhiAllahu ‘anhu):
Allah’s Apostle (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to invoke thus: “O Allah! I seek refuge with You from miserliness, laziness; from old geriatric age; the punishment in the grave; from the affliction of Ad-Dajjal; and from the afflictions of life and death.”

May Allah grant us with pious children who are the coolness of our eyes. Ameen.
I used to want people to know of my sincerety so people could be secure of me but now I thank Allah that is not the case because I have realized it’s value and it is the most dear thing to me. Sincerely is undoubtedly the best kept secret.
I love the neqab. I love all women that wear the niqab. I love seeing women wear the niqab. It demonstrates their commitment to the sunnah and their love for it. When I see a woman in niqab I think beautiful. I cannot see them, though I know that they are beautiful. They are beautiful because they put above what is Above and they are willing to stive for the truth. They are giving up their inner desire to adorn themselves… To adorn theirselves for the Most High. To submit to the will of Their Creator. Not just their creator, but mine. And yours. The Creator of the heavens and earth whom they will return to. Whom they will be asked what they did to prevent the luring eyes of men.
They are true slaves of Allah and they fear Him alone. They do not succumb to the preassures of society because they know of a society far greater. A society that was once the most uncivilized, burrying their daughters alive but one man stopped it all. His name was Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم. The munaaqabah strives to be like that of the sahabiyyat even though she will never be. Living in the far west, she is not objectified. She is a covered girl walking far and by doing her part in society, trying to earn an education, maybe.
Tell me, what do you see?
“Oh Allah! Make the distance between me and my sins as great as You have made the distance between the east and the west. Oh Allah! Cleanse me of my sins as a white garment is cleansed of dirt. Oh Allah Purify me from my sins by snow, water and hail. Oh Allah! Purify me from misdeeds and sins as a white garment is purified from dirt”
(Narrated by Al-Bukhari, Muslim and others)
