O ALLAH, PLEASE SAVE ME FROM THE FIRE IN HELL

O Allah, O my Lord
Please make the tears that I shed while I’m in fear of You
Be the extinguisher for the flames of Your Hellfire
The tears that trickle on the ground
Be the one to relinquish me of all my sins
O Lord! if not for Your blessings
I will not be safe
At least, if not for Your forgiveness
I will not be free from the punishments
I’m helpless, please assist me
My nafs ( desires ) are wild
Please help me constantly to fight against my nafs
Satan is deceiving me as always
Please protect me against it
There are too many paths of evil
Some are obvious while some are inconspicuous
If not for Your guidance I will be lost along the way
Please guide me always
So that I will be free from harm during my journey to You

THE IMPORTANCE OF SAYING A PRAYER OR INVOCATION

Let us say our prayer or invocation to God
it is a sign our humbleness towards Him
Let us ask Him regarding all matters
To get rid of our vanity and arrogance
Let us appeal to God
it is one of the traits of servitude
Let us say our prayer to Him, to show that we are weak servants
Let us ask Him, to show that we are His slave and we think well
Let us appeal to God
He will certainly grant our requests even in the hereafter
Prayer means we are interacting with God
Prayer means we supplicate to God
Prayer means we are having conversations with God
We express all our affairs to Him
Asking for this and that
Isn’t that beautiful and delightful
Prayer is an act of worship
In fact it is considered the head of worship
Prayer is the weapon for the believer
Prayer is a hope
Prayer is included as the relationship between a slave and his Creator
People who do not say their prayer or invocation means
he is arrogant with God
He feels that he has power
He does not need his Lord anymore
He is included amongst the people who have been severed from the grace of God

AN INSIGHT ON BEAUTIFUL POLYGAMY IN ISLAM

What is Polygamy?

Polygamy is a way of life in a family as commanded by God. For Allah and Rasul, life as a family is polygamy. While monogamy is the last choice. To have one wife is meant only for the people who are too weak to be fair leaders. Polygamy is actually needed by both men and women.

Woman who loves God absolutely requires polygamy. This is because between the responsibility towards God and responsibility towards her husband, polygamy is the way for her to fulfill it. That is submission towards God, love with God and sacrifice for God will be most practical when our lifestyle is polygamy. Polygamy provides many great deal and wide opportunities for one to demonstrate that one’s life is only for the sake of God. Whoever prays in the real sense of the word will surely never miss this opportunity. This is because a prayer states that life is only for God.

Polygamy trains women to say:

God, the match whom You bestow upon me, this husband of mine, I am blessed to have him so that I can be more thankful to You. So, I will prove it to You, that a husband is a leader and a wife is an obedient follower. This leader who can lead more than one wife, I will share all the pleasures I receive from my husband and this household with another woman who also needs it. For the sake of obeying Your commands O Lord, so that my love for You is verified and also for the sake of getting Your acceptance O Lord. And so that the Prophet’s Sunnah is my Sunnah too. That is polygamy is helping woman to free herself from the nafs ammarah. That is polygamy is the most effective cure to obtain God’s love. The hardships in polygamy is indeed needed to cleanse the heart from the evil and filthy nafs. Whoever wishes to die as someone who brings along a protected heart, will certainly choose polygamy as a way of life. With regards to this protected heart, Allah has revealed in Al Quran, meaning:

” On that day ( Day of Reckoning ) wealth and children will not be of any use unless you bring along a protected heart.” ( As Syu’ara: 88-89 )

What do men need polygamy? Yes, it is for the men to say, ” For the sake of God, I will demonstrate that a man is capable of marrying 4 women, to lead them to God, to totally fulfill the love and care and their welfare, to provide many children and to make them feeling satisfied and contented with all these. With the condition that You care to be with me throughout my entire life, O Allah. O Lord, You are Most Just, please make me into a leader who is fair and just.”

God, whenever there exist a man and women who possess the hearts mentioned earlier, then they will be united in a marriage so that a harmonious and beautiful polygamy will take place as what You meant. Al Quran and Hadith will then be practiced as a way of life. Then, appear a live and moving Al Quran and Hadith, implementing an Islamic way of life. The Pillars of Faith and the Pillars of Islam become alive within the pillars of life of human. And it is the beginning of Islamic resurgence on God’s earth. Amin, O Allah.

PLEASE FORGIVE OUR SINS

Please forgive our sins, O Allah
We have sinned ever so frequently
Pardon us, O Allah!
So that we are protected from Your place of torment

Grant us repentance, O Lord
You are the Acceptor of penitence
We are incapable of entering Your place of the condemned
As the punishments are too gruesome and horrifying beyond imaginations

With Your Grace, please forgive us
Or with Your Mercy, please grant us Your pardon
If You bring upon us Your punishments
We are still Your servants, O Allah

If You forgive us, Your Greatness will not be altered
If You forgive us, Your Supremacy remain unscathed
As no one is capable of threatening You
As everything else are created by You

We are hopeful constantly, we are asking endlessly
We will not give up on You, now and forever
We will not feel sick and tired in asking
Until with Your blessings, our sins are pardoned.

ABUYA ASHAARI MUHAMMAD AT TAMIMI

THANK YOU, O LORD

Thank you, O Lord
for Your continuous and bounteous blessings
for allowing me to appear before You, O lord
You are Most Gracious and Most Merciful

for me to communicate with You, O Lord
allowing me to appeal to You
to praise and glorify You with all my heart and soul
pleading and kneeling before You, Ya Rabbi

Yet, I feel restless while appearing before You
for failing to be courteous towards You
I begin to worry if I’m being defiant in my obedience
I will not be given Your blessings
instead Your wrath is what I will redeem

Ya Rabbal ‘Aalamin
Please forgive me

ABUYA
