Seriously, I can relate to what your saying. Alhamdilullah my salah will never leave meh and thats a promise I made to Allah sinse I started praying. But with salah you need concentration, something I've lacked in the passed couple of months. When it came to Ramadan, truthfully, my life changed. I couldnt be f'd with anything, didnt feel tha same love fo it that I did a year back. Couldnt be bothered with life, hey whats the point ryt? Na lyk your going to get anywhere..and music? its the step forward. it relives you? helps you? yeh thats what i feel and have been feeling for the past couple of months. I love my Smak that aswell and ma Eminem but quite truthfully whats in the lyrics? All it is is some unbeliever spitting bars about their sex life, drugs, being a thug...Is that what people like you and me look up to? find relief in MEANINGLESS WORDS?
I've just been talking to a sister who has the same problem as me ;) & yano what she said to me? she goes "sinse when did someone like you
strt listening to music?" and you know such a simple sentence made me just stop and think, motivated as such. Why am I taking plesure in words from a kafir rather than the words of Allah? Astaghfirullah. And just writing this makes me wana cry, and why? cause I'm so luvin up the dunya, so caught up in this world that i'm forgetting what my deen is about. I fail to fulfill just the basics of Islam yet I want Allah to shower His blessings with everything good. imsad
Music is only halal when people like you and me seek
Islam isnt out to make your life living hell, it isnt to make your life a craphole, rather its a blessing from Allah. As for salah, I dont really have to emphasise the beauty and blessing of it, its self explanitory. & i know people like you and me will never go and actually read the articles, instead choose the cowards way out and keep on sinning. You know I think theres a hadeeth one of me teachers told me about that if you miss one salah its like being in Hell for so many years. Now being even dipped in the blazing fire would just finish us and imagin living years there? If Jahanam is what you strive for then sister miss all your prayers. If Jannah on the other hand is what you want your final abode to be then I suggest you go do wudhu now for Maghrib prayer. How can we sit back and think that hey I'm Muslim so therefore I will go straight to Jannah? For Jannah we need to strive, it wont be given to us on a plate. If we just begin to think about Sahabah [Peace & blessinz of Allah be upon them] then you can take a lesson from them. These were people who literally died and lived for Islam, and yet they still feared that they would not be the ones under Allah's shade on Yawmuddin La hawla wa la quwata illah billah. Where that leave us?
& then what of His blessings do we deny?
I'm no sheik, i'm no scholar, and Im definetly no-one that can motivate you into doing anything as I'm in need of exactly that. All I'm saying is, if you wish to have the small plesures of dunya rather than the plesures of Akhirah they carry on busting your tracks, as will I, if you want more sins, then continue missing Salah, just dont expect a reward from Allah while doing so. You know by doing this you will have to suffer the consequences, so when your standing before Allah, dont say you didnt know about it, Verily ALlah is the knower of all knowledge. Before Him you will have everything to answer to, just imagine that day? Can you? Naah, neiva can I...
May Allah make it easy for us and give us a place in Jannah Ameen
