November 01, 2023, 03:43:43 pm Ruhi_Rose: Yes .. making lots of dua everyday ..... watching those real life video clips, my face feels wet with tears all the time.  May ALLAH grant the best to these wonderful, brave & steadfast martyrs,  Ameen ya Allah.
November 01, 2023, 03:38:26 pm Zainab_M: Keep praying, praying a lot for Gaza. It's worse than a prison .. it's a concentration camp.  Children as young as 10 or 11 are having to care for their younger siblings ages 2, 3 and 4 becoz many have lost both parents.  It's a very, very, very tearful situation there.
October 26, 2023, 03:40:19 pm N. Truth Seeker: Don't forget to look up MV Blog Zainab's Lounge for our Gaza updates.
October 20, 2023, 04:24:44 pm Zainab_M: Right sister Heba.  Gaza hospital bombing has the fingerprints of Israel all over it.  For Israel this is no big crime.  They have done this and much worse many times in the past and intend to do the same and worse many more times in near future.
October 20, 2023, 04:20:20 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Catching Zionist lies isn't hard. Soon after Gaza hospital bombing killing and maiming hundreds, Israel was quick to accuse Islamic Jihad of a misfired rocket.  That didn't sound plausible because IJ does not have such sophisticated bombing devices.  Zionist lie was fully exposed when anglican archbishop of Jerusalem,Hosam Naoum,  said today that 3 or 4 days prior to boming Israel had warned Gaza hospital to evacuate. Yet CIA claims in its flawed analysis that the rocket did not come from Israel.  But conveniently does not explain how Israel could have known 4 days earlier that a "misfired" rocket from IJ was coming.  Yet on the basis of this flawed & bias analysis of CIA, Biden is comforting Israel he believes Israel didn't do that war crimes bombing.
July 29, 2023, 03:02:07 am Zainab_M: Yesterday was Ashura, Muharram 10, 1444 (July 27, 2023).  Read about this very tragic day and details of the world's greatest 7th century revolutionary: WHO WAS HUSSEIN.

Assalamo Alaikumm,


And (unto man): O Adam! Dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden and eat from whence ye will, but come not nigh this tree lest ye become wrong-doers.  7:19 Al Araf.


Why were Adam and his wife told not to eat the produce of a tree in Jannat?   Allah warns them in the Quran 7:19 Al Araf that if they approached that tree they would become of the zalimun (unjust and wrong¬doers).   One may ask, how can a tree in a perfect place like Paradise grow such a hurtful product that could ruin a person’s soul if they ate it?

Walaikum As-Salam.   The tree was a symbol of a decisive test.  The command from Allah Almighty to Adam and his wife not to approach a tree in Paradise was to test them, to what extent they were steadfast and obedient to Him.  Allah knew that Satan would try to tempt them into disobedience.  Allah also knew that Adam and his wife would disobey Him and follow Satan, and would thus fail the test.  Yet they were tested so that their disobedience would be manifest to them through their own deeds as evidence. 

The Almighty has made it very clear to us in the Noble Quran that our earthly life has many tests and tribulations.  Based on how we handle these tests and the kind of decisions we make, we will be either rewarded or penalized in the next world.  For this reason Allah Almighty has granted each one of us a free will to make decisions and choose our path of conduct.  Adam and his wife also had the free choice to make decisions and select their path of conduct, but unfortunately they erred and had to leave Jannah as a penalty.  However, because Allah relented toward them, He did not send them to Hellfire.  Instead they were sent to this temporary world which is certainly much inferior to Jannah, but probably a little better than Hellfire.

“He said, "Therein you will live, and therein you will die, and from it you will be brought forth."  7:25  Al-Araf. 

“O Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you as he caused your (first) parents to go forth from the Garden and tore off from them their robe (of innocence) that he might manifest their shame to them.  Indeed, he sees you, he and his tribe, from where you do not see him.”  7:27  Al-Araf.

Subhan’Allah.  Let us always remember:  Whatever mistakes we make is to our own hurt.  Allah is The Absolute, The Independent.  He does not need us, but we need Him at every moment of our lives.

Walaykom As Salam.   Alhumdulilah.

The test of forbidding Adam and his wife from approaching a tree in Jannah may be viewed as the first thing that was made Haram for humans.  Or the first Divine Order to humans of a prohibition from Allah.

It is amazing how Adam and his wife, being in the vast expanse of the Beauty in Paradise, got attracted to one single tree which they were commanded to avoid.  They seemed to have forgotten all the lovely Halal blessings of Paradise and fell prey to Satan’s whisperings, desiring to approach a tree they were told to stay away from.   It proves how fast and how profoundly humans can get misguided, and how easy it is to beguile them, even though Allah told them that Paradise is a place where “..   you will never be hungry therein nor naked.”  (20:118 Ta Ha).  And Allah had mentioned to Adam and his wife that Satan is their enemy.  “O Adam! This is an enemy unto you and unto your wife, so let him not drive you both out of the Garden so that you come to toil.” (20:117).  How beautifully and concisely Allah has explained everything.  Yet Adam and his wife gave in to Satan’s temptation and thus failed the test.  It is a reminder of a broader inclination of the human mind and temperament.
