The manner of greeting

Assalaamu alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

When a greeting is offered to you, meet it with a greeting more courteous, or at least of equal courtesy. Allah takes account of all things.

Quraan S. 4 V.86

The Decline of a nation

Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

It has been narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu anhu) that Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said: "When my followers will begin to adore the worldly benefits, their hearts will be deprived of the importance of Islam; and when they stop enjoining the good and forbidding evil, they will be deprived of the blessing of the revelation (the Quran); and when they will abuse each other, they will fall from the esteem of Allah Ta'ala."

Lesson: The meaning of this Hadith is as clear as daylight. Is it any wonder the Ummah is where it is? Can we seriously blame anyone else for our plight?

Saved from impulsive buying!!!

Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

I almost bought something that i didn't need. A lovely pair of sweat pants!!!
I saw this lovely pair that i really wanted, but not needed, and as I was standing in the queue to pay for them, and then it hit me that i already had lots of pants that i could use as substitutes for them, and that it would be more worth while if i spent that money on donations for something more useful such as a blanket for a poor family who might need it during this winter season. I turned right back put the sweat Pants back and walked out of the store feeling very very happy, Alhamdo lillah!!

just this little bit from me today!

Ma' Salaama

Some Advise needed!!

Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

A few months ago I joined up with a group of Muslim girls that were combining Islamic Teachings with "fun" things girls could do. in this group there was one senior lady who overlooked the activities of these girls. At first it all seemed like a really great idea and most girls would pitch up only when there was something big going on like a tea or a themed party.

This carried on for sometime, and the girls somewhat stayed on track. one day they teamed up with the muslim Boys group and decided to have a joint party, but they agreed to have separate halls. This is when i started to pull out of their group and not associating with them.
Now decided to permanently join the boys group, they have meeting with them etc. (which i consider to be totally haram as i don't see them do it for a worthy cause)

Just a day ago they have asked me to do an article for their "joint" Newsletter, and I have turned them down coz i didn't want feel like supporting this group, as i see them doing wrong! But at the same time I want to guide them back to how they were...

Am I over reacting or am I simply not supporting them.
What do u guys think I should do?
