Taqwa is not only in our manners..Taqwa is not about looking islamic...Taqwa is not about sporting a beard or wearing a Hijab...Taqwa is not appearance BUT Taqwa is when you miss a single prayer, you feel uneasy the whole day... Taqwa is when you speak a lie , your instinct feels bad.. Taqwa is the guilt that follows when u hurt someone knowingly or unknowingly, Taqwa is the shame and regret that follows a sin you did knowing fully well about it's stand in the sight of Allah, Taqwa is when you cannot sleep the whole night after disobeying or disrespecting your parents Taqwa is to cry in the depths of night fearing none but the one above the Arsh. Taqwa is the fear that refrains us from sinning even when we are alone and nobody is looking... Taqwa is the guts and the will to please Allah, even when the whole world is hell bent on displeasing Him... Taqwa is to wear that beard and Hijab for the sole reason of pleasing Our Rabb and to keep it as per sunnah.... Taqwa is to stay happy and smiling even after knowing this world is a prison for believers... Taqwa is the good manners and character that loving and fearing Allah brings in us... Taqwa is the struggle to better yourself according to Islam with each passing day... Taqwa is not only about rising in deen, it is more about falling but again rising up and never letting go... Taqwa IS ALL ABOUT WHAT LIES IN THE HEART And if this heart is filled with proper Taqwa, then actions automatically follow...And the sweetness of these actions are so much better..Alhamdulillah REMINDER!!! As Allah SWT says: Remind, for reminder benefits the believers Strange world: Janazah after janazah as storms. Death after death So and so died in car crash. Others from disease Others walking and fell dead All of them left life behind And we buried them Surely my day and your day will come. You who delay tawbah for you are young. Sorry it's not written on the graveyard FOR THE OLD ONLY Life is only 3 days long: Yesterday - Lived and never comes back Today - We live and wont last Tomorrow - we don't know where we will be. So greet. Forgive and be charitable For me, you and them will all leave... Oh Allah we ask you a good ending. Grant us jannah. Protect us from jahannam. Ameen My advice is ensure you read the Quran everyday even if it's a verse may Allah reward us abundantly Ameen.
