Assalamu Alaikum,

This post has been inspired by Sister Laila Nasheeba from


Taking shahada doesn't JUST mean just saying "La ilaha illah muhammad abduhu rasululah", but it goes further than just this.


1. Belief in what you said "There is no god, but ALLAH and Muhammad is his prophet and messenger".
2. Have Certainty and no doubt about these words
3. Belief in 6 Articles of faith (Belief in Allah alone, his prophets, his books, his angels, Day of Judgment, and Predestination)
4. Accepting the conditions
5. Submission to your LORD

When taking Shahada, the individual must believe in these conditions. They must accept everything that ALLAHSWT has put down in His Book and to accept the Sunnah and to obey Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

Righteous is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it those who are the righteous. Al-Baqara verse 177 i.e. [2:177]

Becoming a Muslim means leaving your Kaffir husband and marrying a Muslim man. This is a fundamental part of becoming a muslim. You must go along with the rules and legislation of ALLAHSWT.

This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah – who believe in the unseen, establish prayers and spend out of what We have provided them … Al-Baqarah verses 2 -3 [2:2-3]

Before taking shahada, you must know the conditions and fulfill them.

"Do not worship except Allah; and to parents do good and to relative, orphans and the needy. And speak to people good words and establish prayer and give zakah." Al-Baqarah verse 83 i.e. [2:83]

Taking Shahada changes your life for the better, insha'ALLAH. Accepting the ways of ALLAHSWT will change you...for it has changed me...masha'ALLAH!!

Assalamu Alaikum,

I believe this verse has always accompanied a special place in my heart. I've read it in the Qur'an, and inside of a book.

Qur'an 2:177
It is not righteousness That ye turn your faces toward East or West;
But it is righteousness -
To believe in Allah (The One and Only God)
And the Last DayAnd the AngelsAnd the Book
And the Messengers;
To spend of your substance out of love for Him
For your kin
For orphans
For the needy
For the wayfarer
For those who ask,
And for the ransom of slaves;
To be steadfast in prayer
And practice regular charity;
To fulfil the contracts which ye have made;
And to be firm and patient in pain (or suffering) and adversity
And throughout all periods of panic.
Such are the people of truth the Allah-fearing (God-conscious).

This is beautiful. Whenever you pray salat and look towards the East, just remember that this doesn't make you a believer, but believing in His Book, the Angels, the prophets, the message, the Day of Judgment, and etc. does. When you do anything for AllahSWT then you are most righteous. When you give charity and pray consistently in hope of reaching his rewards and fighting through the tough times, then masha'ALLAH then you are MOST righteous.

I believe this is very true. Many times in our lives we may go through some bad patches, but we must never forget about ALLAHSWT. We must always pray and make du'a.

We must stay firm during the times of darkness and adversity

We all go through tests and ALLAHSWT tells us this in His Book. We must stay firm in our belief because this is the way of the Righteous.

Ponder upon this verse and remember it whenever you forget about the "TRUE" believer.

Assalamu Alaikum,

I was just reading a blog about this sister going through a polygamous marriage, and her husband not be just between his wives.

Subhan'ALLAH, its a right of the muslim men in Islam to take 1,2,3,4 wives if they wanted to, but he would have to treat them justly. He would have to provide and maintain for them. If the brother didn't, he would have to answer to God on the Day of Judgment..subhan'ALLAH.

I've heard many instances in which many sisters have gone through marriages with being a co-wife or having co-wives. Many times the brother doesn't provide, or does it for his nafs-lower self and desires.

I can't say that a brother can't have multiple wives because GOD allowed this for them.

This came about when many men during the time of the Prophet Muhammad(Sallalahu alayhe wassalam) went out to war, and many women were without providers, so men took up multiple wives to care for them, and provide for them.

Is it hard? I'm sure it is.


The Islamic Personality

Assalamu Alaikum and greetings of peace,

I am listening to the topic of "The Islamic Personality" by Laila Nasheeba.

The Prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings be upon him) came to not only convey the message of Islam, but to teach manners to the people.

As Muslims, it is our duty to be distinct and well-mannered in our ways. Islam tells us to be mannerable people. We should not be distinct only in dress, but by our speech, our actions, and our ways.

Islam doesn't call us to be like the next person, or the person we live next to, but to be "distinct".

We should remember that Islam call us to be "just", "honest", "fair", "gentle", "soft", "humble", and etc.

As Muslims, our job isn't to be like our pop culture, but to be distinct. Our characters, our ways, our actions should be "distinct".

The Prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings be upon him) said, "When you imitate a nation, then you become one of them".

So, its important to not be like the people around us, but to be like "Muslims" that have been sent the mannerisms of Islam.

As Muslims, we know that we all will have tests to overcome. We know that our ancestors have had tests, thus we will have tests. Don't act as if you're not going to have tests because you will.

Remember what the Prophet Muhammad said, "Islam came as something strange, and will return as something strange".

People may dislike you because you wear hijab, niqab, wear abaya, grow out your beard, don't party, don't smoke, don't drink, don't mix with the opposite sex, don't lie, don't steal, pray 5x a day, and etc. People will dislike you until you become like them. People will always hate you in some way. We must always remember that we are just passer-bys in this world and must only take what is neccessary because next stop will be the results of our test-HEAVEN OR HELL. Subhan'ALLAH!

As Muslims, our personalities should be "DISTINCT".

Assalamu Alaikum and peace and blessings be upon you,

I am up right now listening to Qur'an, so alhumdulilah I am calm and at ease.

I believe Islam is really beautiful and its a calm and peaceful place in a loud and angry world.

Islam derives from the word "salam" which means peace...Masha'ALLAH.

Islam is this way of life that gives clarity to everything.

I couldn't imagine myself going back to the way of life in which I felt was without structure.

Islam gives you a sense of peace and calmness.

It just reminds me of how I put on the scarf each and every day and know that its one of the hardest things to do....but I do it for the Creator. Its hard. When majority of the women around you don't wear it...its like "OH MY GOSH, WHAT AM I DOING?". Sometimes we must remember that Islam started as something strange and will return as something strange.

I love the fact that whenever you see a sister or brother its like "Assalamu Alaikum". Its nice to hear that. It brings a sense of unity throughout the Ummah.

I don't know what else to say. When your life isn't in the best condition or when you're going through alot....Islam always give you a place to go. We all go through tests, but its up to us to decide how to take it. We can give up and fail our tests or we can be strong and get through it with minor cuts and bruises.

I feel like posting a YOUTUBE lecture, so I will, insha'ALLAH!!!

Getting Informed About Your Religion!!

I have learned alot of things within these few days. I have been going to for information about Islam.

As a new Muslima to Islam I know its important to learn about Islam from a good teacher and a knowledgable teacher.

This sister is very good at what she does. Sister Laila Nasheeba is really a great individual to go to when discussing the affairs of Islam.

I ask alot of questions and she answers them. She answers them straightforward and with keeness

I love this aspect of the sister.

As a Muslima, its important to know about ourselves. This is a great website to go to.

I have learned about alot of things about Islam.

Please, stop by this website when you have the opportunity to.

A Few Words of Wisdom

Assalamu Alaikum,

I've had a few interesting days. Days are winding down on my calendar. The days are more calmer and relaxing.

As Muslims, we should be careful in who we get our diin from...our knowledge. We shouldn't allow anyone to educate us.

We should be educated by scholars, islamic teachers, and professors.

I've learned this the correct way.

Don't allow your information to come soley from fatwa sites because some scholars aren't very good in what they teach.

Some scholars come from deviant and misguiding sects.

Just a few words of wisdom!!!

We Need A Ramadhan By Abu Uwaise

Assalamu Alaikum,

My muslima sister told me listen to a lecture by Abu Uwaise called, "We Need a Ramadhan".
I'm finally listening to it, and its really deep.
It really makes you think about how our behavior should do.
It speaks alot to me because its true.
"We haven't been given the certificate of Jannah", so we need to remember to be servants of Allah....this is a good line he says.

We Need A Ramadhan for the following reasons:
1. To correct ourselves...ihsan
2. To progress in our deen.
3. To read Qur'an
4. To help struggling relationships we may have
5. To pray more
6. To patch up some ill areas in our lives
7. To stop doing the haraam
and so many more

Our hearts should be focused on AllahSwt and on serving him. We should focus ourselves on the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth. We should rely on our Master and show Him our true dedication and love for Him.

WE need to read more hadith and Qur'an. We should listen to our qur'an tapes or cds and show rahma(mercy) to our friends and family members. We should hold close to the rope of Islam.

We should focus our attention from the haraam and to the halal.
We should strengthen our tawqa and study more.

We should implement more Islamic education in our lives. We should read more and study more. We should just do a Sunnah salaat or go to a tawjeed class. Or we should do dhikr and du'a. We should calm ourselves down with the sounds of the Qur'an.

I believe its very true that we should remember our point in living. Our purpose in this life is to Worship the Creator. We should remember RasullahSAW.

I hope this helped...because just thinking about this made me think a little more.

What does it mean to live your life According to the Qur'an and Sunnah?

Assalamu Alaikum,

My blog is intended on talking about the Qur'an and the Sunnah!!

Insha'Allah, I will begin talking about the meaning behind my blog.

The Sunnah is something very dear to me, and to many Muslims I could imagine.

When I came into Islam, I didn't know the rights of women, and didn't know quite to expect for a Muslima. I was really ignorant of the rights of women.

Also, as I grew to read alot of hadis...I began understand my freedom as a woman in Islam. I began to love reading about the lives of the sahabiyat(female companions of the ProphetSAW). I loved reading about their lives, and how they were so "independent".

I didn't really have anything to complain about.

As I began reading, I began understanding how Muslim Women are so lucky in having these rights which were granted so many years before Western women could even think about.

The Qur'an is something dear also. I love the Suras Rahman and Sura Mu'min. These may be my favorite beside Sura Ikhlass which I have memorized by heart...alhumdulilah.

Who is number 1 on YOUR LIST?

Assalamu Alaikum,

I am really trying to keep myself on the diin because its very important. I believe that Muslims should always respect others in their faith, and to expect that from others. In understanding our diin, we should learn how to understand the meaning of being Muslim.

When we put our Lord as number one on our list then we are good...we can conquer the world like that.

Today, I have been on Youtube just looking at lectures, and its so many great ones out there. Alhumdulilah, its fabulous.

When I don't go to the mesjid then I can get up on my diin!!!

Alhumdulilah, this is most important for me and myself.

Yes, I may get off track sometimes, but alhumdulilah I keep in mind who is most important and that is ALLAH.

Subhan'ALLAH, we must put Islam first on our list and let everything else fall into place.
