Importance of Intention (نیّة) in the Noble Quran

January 24, 2020, 12:04:51 am Heba E. Husseyn: Do please read our blog entry @ Zainab's Lounge titled Murder of Qassem Soleimani and comrades.
January 04, 2020, 01:14:24 am Heba E. Husseyn: Martyrdom is the highest level of victory, higher than battlefield victory.  Inna Lilahey wa Inna Elahe Rajoon.  May The Almighty grant the pious general a wonderful welcome in Jannah. Ameen.
January 03, 2020, 02:30:43 pm N. Truth Seeker: One of the saddest days in modern history.   Cry  May Allah grant peace to the martyr and patience to the bereaved, ameen.
January 03, 2020, 02:28:37 pm Zeynab: Muslim Villa prays for the departed soul of the great martyr Gen. Qassem Solemani of Iran at the hands of the cold-blooded murderers of Washington DC.  May Allah The Almighty grant our dear brother Solemani the highest spot in Paradise.  Ameen.
May 30, 2019, 06:15:49 am Zeynab: Alhudulilah, yes sister Ruhi.  Time flies in this fleeting world.  May Allah The Almighty accept our hard work in the permanent world.  That's the real success.
May 30, 2019, 03:43:58 am Ruhi_Rose: Jumaa-tul-widaa (farewell to Ramadan) tomorrow Friday 31.  How time flies!  Ya Allah, keep us close to Your mercy.
March 16, 2019, 02:21:19 am N. Truth Seeker: We at MV express our deepest sympathy for our sisters & brothers who became victims of terror attacks while offering their Jumma prayers in the Masjids in NZ.

Vital reminder, thanks a billion for this marvelous work.   Improvement of one's intention or niyyah is one of the most neglected spheres in the present world, very much including the Muslim world, unfortunately.   Reminds me of a simple example.  My youngest sister runs a montessori school.  A lady, neighbor, who lives very close to our house wanted to get her 3-year-old son into that montessori.  My sister helped her with that, and she was extremely happy.  She knew my sister owned that school, so she would visit our place to meet my sister every week, sometimes twice a week, often bringing home-cooked food.   Everyone in my house thought she was such a kind and grateful lady.  Then, 3 years later, ever since her son began attending primary school grade 1 and shifted to another school, that lady has never even called my sister once (let alone visiting her)  Grin Grin     That's the kind of world we're living in at the moment.  Kindness without the thought of gain or loss is next to impossible to find. 

As sister Ruhi described, I find it quite surprising why Muslim communities in the West act so self-centered with so much insensitivity.  One would presume minority communities to be close-knit.  But probably with the influx to Muslim immigration in the western world, they have proliferated enough not to feel close-knit any longer  ... or were they ever?    Sister Zeynab is right.   Kindness is nowadays only for the prosperous fat cats, not the disadvantaged who have practically nothing and could gain from a bit of sympathy and kind words at least, if not practical kindness.

This is an excellent piece by Sister Heba.  I must save it right away as our discussion group needs to muse on it in our next get-together, Insh'Allah.
