”… And He is the Forgiving, the Loving . . . Ve O, Gafur’dur (mağfiret edendir), Vedûd’dur (çok sevendir) . . . (Surah al-Buruj, 14)

A person’s most useful asset is not the head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen and a hand willing to help.


1. But, We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars. [Quran, 29: 3]

2. “And if only the people of the cities had believed and feared Allah, We would have opened upon them blessings from the heaven and the earth; but they denied [the messengers], so We seized them for what they were earning.” [Quran, 7: 96]

3. “And from wherever you go out [for prayer], turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram. And wherever you [believers] may be, turn your faces toward it in order that the people will not have any argument against you, except for those of them who commit wrong; so fear them not but fear Me. And [it is] so I may complete My favor upon you and that you may be guided.” [Quran, 2: 150]

4. “Indeed, there is for him (Shaitaan) no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.” [Quran, 16: 99]

5. Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds – indeed, We will not allow to be lost the reward of any who did well in deeds. [Quran, 18: 30]

6. “Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment.” [Quran, 9: 111]

7. “Verily Allah will defend (from ill) those who believe, verily, Allah loves not any that is a traitor to faith or shows ingratitude.” (Quran 22:38)

Allah loves humans but hates their sins. This means that although bad deeds merit Allah’s disapproval and subsequent punishment, they also invoke His infinite mercy on a weak creature whom He has lovingly created, to whom He has given life, and whom He has nurtured with gifts and bounty.

In a world that is getting tougher by the day, where people are becoming bitter, harder & more self-centred, strive to stay soft-hearted, kind & gentle.

“Be a cushion in a world full of rocks & hard places. Be a gentle soul where everyone else is jaded. Be that person. Because people like that are rarer & more precious than the rarest of jewels in this world.”

People will tell you that your heart will surely get broken if you’re soft & don’t stand up, that you should toughen up or you’ll be taken advantage of. But remember, being soft-hearted, kind & gentle was the noble qualities of the one who is the most beloved to Allah, our Rasool sallallaahu alayhi wasallam. If we strive to keep these qualities despite getting hurt or being taken advantage of, we will be treading our Rasulullah sallallaahu alayhi wasallam’s footsteps. Aand the reward of being soft hearted, kind & gentle is no other than the ultimate…Al Jannah.

The Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam said :
“Shall I not tell you who will be forbidden from the fire?
It will be forbidden for every gentle,soft hearted and kind-person”.
[At – Tirmidhi]

You will not enter paradise until you have faith; and you will not complete your faith till you love one another. The best of people is one from whom good accrues to humanity.

Inscribed on the hilt of the Prophet’s sword: ‘Forgive him who wrongs you; join him who cuts you off; do good to him who does evil to you, and speak the truth although it be against yourself.

Sit with those who constantly repent, for they have the softest hearts.
[Umar Ibn Al-Khattab Radhiyallahu Anhu]

Richness is not having many possessions. Rather, true richness is the richness of the soul . . . Gerçek zenginlik, mal çokluğu değil, gönül tokluğudur . . . The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)

When we think of a religious person who Allah loves, we tend to think of a man who has a beard, wears an ‘imama and a juba, always lives in the mosque, constantly prays, fasts and recites the Qur’an.

*But you know who we tend to forget that Allah loves?*

The mother who manages to get up for Fajr despite sleeping less than an hour because her baby was up all night.

The young person who is fighting depression but still musters the strength to get through the day because of a belief that he has in Allah.

The woman who has to speed through her prayer because her little one is crying.

The man who lays down the mat and prostates whilst at work.

The lady who wears the hijab correctly in public despite the pressures.

The student who lowers his gaze in an environment in college and university because he is conscious of Allah.

The individual who wants to fast throughout the month but his medical situation doesn’t allow it.

The one who leaves the house in the morning to earn halal so he can feed the family and look after the kids.

The guy who leaves what he used to do because it was wrong and returns to Allāh in remorse such that he often feels down.

The one who can barely recite a page of the Qur’an and doesn’t have a great voice but still sits there and tries.

The people who didn’t know anything about religion until later on in life but still have the power to humble themselves and seek knowledge.

*Piety has many forms and comes in different shapes*

If you are obeying Allah in whichever way you can, then be pleased and know that Allah loves you. Something small for one man is like climbing a steep mountain for another, and Allah knows that. He won’t let the tears, the tiredness, the effort, the good intentions and the striving go to waste.

Allah bless us all with His love.

Be good even if you don’t receive good, not because of other’s sake but because Allah loves the good doers. -Ibn al-Qayyim.

A friend will not (literally) share your struggles, and a loved one cannot physically take away your pain, and a close one will not stay up the night on your behalf. So look after yourself, protect it, nurture it. Don’t give life’s events more than what they are really worth.

Be certain that when you break, no one will heal you except you; and when you are defeated, no one will give you victory except your own determination. Your ability to stand up again and carry on is your responsibility.

Do not look for your self-worth in the eyes of people; look for your worth from within your conscious. If your conscious is at peace then you will ascend high, and if you truly know yourself then what is said about you won’t harm you.

Do not carry the worries of this life, because this is for Allah. And do not carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allah. And do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the Hands of Allah.

Carry one thing;

How to Please Allah. Because if you please Him, He Pleases you, fulfils you and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep, just say “Oh Allah compensate me with good in this life and the hereafter.”

Sadness departs with a sajdah. Happiness comes with a sincere du’a. Allah does not forget the good you do, nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.

Live your life with this principle;

Be good even if you don’t receive good, not because of other’s sake but because Allah loves the good doers.

To err is human; to forgive, divine…/…Yanılmak insanca; bağışlamak kutsalca bir iştir… Alexander Pope

Life comes down to a series of choices.

To hold on…

To let go…to forget…to forgive…

Which road will you take?

Hayat size bir dizi seçenek sunar.


Bırakmak… Unutmak… Affetmek…

Siz hangi yolu seçerdiniz?

Night Road by Kristin Hannah (Gece Yolu)

Take what is given freely, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the ignorant.

Sen af yolunu tut, iyiliği emret, cahillerden yüz çevir.

Al-Quran [7:199]

There is no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error…/… Dinde zorlama yoktur. Çünkü doğruluk sapıklıktan iyice ayrılmıştır.

The foundation stone of the whole scheme is service. Service to the people, a service that will lighten, brighten, and make more profitable the lives of the majority who do the necessary work of the world.

True freedom is like an evergreen tree, which is free as well as restrained. While every tree is subjected to the same restrictions by nature, these restrictions are imposed to optimize the growth and development of a tree’s latent potential.

Freedom is a natural right of man, a spiritual privilege, a moral prerogative, and, above all, a religious duty. The Islamic concept of freedom is an article of faith, a solemn command from the Supreme Creator. It is built on the following fundamental principles. First, man’s conscience is subject to Allah only, to Whom every man is directly responsible. Secondly, every human being is personally responsible for his deeds and he alone is entitled to reap the fruits of his work. Thirdly, Allah has delegated to man the responsibility to decide for himself. Fourthly, man is sufficiently provided with spiritual guidance and endowed with rational qualities that enable him to make responsible, sound choices. Within the framework of this Islamic concept of freedom, there is no room for religious persecutions, class conflict, or racial prejudice. The individual’s right of freedom is as sacred as his right of Life; freedom is the equivalent of Life itself.

Anyone of you who sees wrong, let him undo it with his hand; and if he cannot, then let him speak against it with his tongue, and if he cannot do this either, then (let him abhor it) with his heart, and this is the least of faith.

The best of people is one from whom good accrues to humanity.

Deal gently with the people, and be not harsh; cheer them and condemn them not.”
(Prophet Muhummad- Peace be upon him)

There is no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error. Whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has grasped the strongest bond that never breaks. Allahs knows all, and hears all things. (Qur’an, 2:256)

The Truth is from your Lord. Let him who wills, believe, and let him who wills, disbelieve. (Qur’an, 18:29)

Today is the Birthday of the Prophet Muhammad,peace be upon him & Mawlid un Nabi(ﷺ) Mubarak to all Muslims around the world ♥

Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [ Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [ Allah to grant him] peace.

Şüphesiz Allah ve melekleri Peygamber’e salât ediyorlar. Ey iman edenler! Siz de ona salât edin, selâm edin.

Surah Al-Ahzab [33:56]

Allahumma salli ala sayyedina Muhammadin wa ala ali sayyedina Muhammad. Be ‘adadi kulli da’in wa dawa’in wa barik wasallim alayhi wa alayhim katheera.

O Allah, bestow blessings on our master Muhammad and on all of his family, in the number of all illnesses and all cures, and send him and to all of them many many peace and blessings.

Salli wa sallim ya Rabbi ala habeebeka Muhammadin wa ala jamee’ al’anbiyaa wal mursalin wa ala ali kullin wa sahbi kullin ajma’in. ameen wal hamdulillahi rabbil’alameen.

O my Lord and Cherisher, bestow blessings and peace on your beloved Muhammad and on all of the messengers and prophets, and on all of their families and companions.

Endless blessings and endless peace be upon you, O beloved of Allah.
Alfu alfi salatin wa alfu alfi salamin ‘alayka ya amina wahyillah.
Endless blessings and endless peace be upon you, O trustee of revelation of Allah.

Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barek ‘ala sayyidina Muhammadin wa ‘ala alihi ve as’habih. Bi adadi awraqil ashjar wa amwajil behar ve qataratil amtar. Waghferlana warhamna waltuf bena ya ilahana bekulli salatin minha shahadah. Ashhadu an la ilaha illallah va ashadu anna muhammadan rasulullahi sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wasallam.

O Allah, bestow blessings and peace on our master Muhammad and on all of his family and companions, in the number of the leaves of the trees and the waves of the seas and the drops of the rain. O Allah, forgive us our sins, have mercy on us, and be graceful to us with each of these blessings. I testify that there is no god but Allah and I testify that Muhammad, Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, is His Messenger.
