Your life is nothing more than a love story. Between you and Allah. Nothing more. Every person, every experience, every gift, every loss, every pain is sent to your path for one reason and one reason only: to bring you back to him.

Hayatın, Allah’la arandaki bir aşk hikayesinden başka bir şey değil. Her insan, her deneyim, her nimet, her kayıp, her acı yoluna tek bir sebeple çıkıyor: Seni O’na geri döndürmek.

Yasmin Mogahed

Holding on to hope when everything is dark, is the greatest test of faith.

Her şey kapkaranlık olduğunda umuda tutunmak, en büyük iman sınavıdır.

Yasmin Mogahed

Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere …. Bugün bazı kapıları kapayın. Gururunuzdan dolayı değil, artık hayatınıza uygun olmadıkları için … Paulo Coelho

With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.”

Cesaretle, risk almaya, merhametli olmak için güce ve mütevazi olmak için bilgeliğe sahip olmaya cesaret edeceksin. Cesaret, bütünlüğün temelidir.”

― Keshavan Nair

Search the Darkness . . . Karanlığı ara . . . by Rumi

Posted in Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi with tags , , , , , on 21/03/2018 by Semra Polat

Sit with your friends, don’t go back to sleep.
Don’t sink like a fish to the bottom of the sea.
Surge like an ocean, don’t scatter yourself like a storm.

Life’s waters flow from darkness.
Search the darkness, don’t run from it.
Night travelers are full of light, and you are too:
Don’t leave this companionship.

Be a wakeful candle in a golden dish,
don’t slip into the dirt like quicksilver.
The moon appears for night travelers,
Be watchful when the moon is full.

-Rumi

Geri uykuya dalma ve dostlarla otur.
Balık gibi denizin dibine çökme.
Okyanus gibi yüksel, fırtına gibi dağılıp gitme.

Ab-ı hayatın kaynağı karanlıktır.
Karanlığı ara ve ondan kaçma.
Gece yolcuları ışıldar,
Aynı senin gibi; bu dostluğu terk etme.

Altın kasede ışıldayan mum ol,
Toz toprak gibi bir anda parlayıp yitiverme.
Ay hicabını gece yolcularına açar,
Gözün gönlün açık olsun ki dolunayı görebil.

– Mevlana

BE GENTLE – NAZİK OL !

Posted in Hadith-Hadis, The articles in English & stories, İSLAM, İSTANBUL with tags , , , on 20/02/2018 by Semra Polat

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 kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it. Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)

We are made strong by the difficulties we face not by those we evade. Time invested in improving ourselves cuts down on time wasted in disapproving of others.

Be kind, for when kindness becomes a part of something, it beautifies it.

Strive always to excel in virtue and truth.

The greatest Jihad is to battle your own soul. To fight the evil within yourself.

You do not do evil to those who doevil to you, but you deal with them with forgiveness and kindness.

Prophet Muhummad (peace be upon him)

 

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.
