I’m concerned.


Nowadays we talk so much about politics, terrorism, security, etc that these topics are actually shadowing the basic issues which we are facing in our society. And among all, one thing which really annoys me is the fee to a tutor. I’m not talking about general or subjective tutions. Rather I’m more concerned about the fees which we pay to a tutor of “Quran”.

Friends I’m not aware about other countries but the trend in my country towards these teachers is really not so human. We are ready to pay thousands and thousands bucks to an English teacher, maths or science teacher but when it comes to the payment of a “Quran” tutor we start making excuses. Excuses like “Oh there should not be any fees for teaching Quran”, “Quran teacher should not ask for money” and if by chance Quran tutor openly ask his fees then we start using bad words for him  Astagfirullah.

I agree that there should not be any fees for teaching Quran. It’s obligatory on every Muslim to read and teach others. But for some people its there livelihood. Some Quran tutor struggles so much to take care of there family. They are forced to do two different kind of jobs to provide bread and butter to there family. Just because they know the kind of fees which we pay to him is not all sufficient. Friends we really need to put ourselves in there shoes and see the situation.  I strongly feel that insufficient income through Quran teaching is one of the reasons that parents or in fact children themselves don’t want to get an Islamic degree. I know it’s sad but that’s what our mentality is becoming. We are running more towards materialistic world and forgetting our deen. Let’s stop this tradition. If we are really want to make a change in our society let’s start supporting such great teachers, scholars. Let’s teach our children more about Quran. Let’s pray Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala to increase our children as well as our knowledge in Quran. Let’s start helping each other in any ways and teach the same to our coming generation.


I’m confuse


Allah is full of mercy. No doubt about it. But still with every dhikr he has mentioned what reward we may get. Subhan Allah. Even it would have been enough for a beleiver to just know the dhikr he is bound to do. But my Allah showed him the fruits as well. Allahumdulilah. Everytime I recite any dua, dhikr or do any ibadah these rewards crosses my mind. I keep on telling same to my daughter- the beautiful jannah, the fairies, the fruits, the flying horse etc etc.

Recently on this topic there happened an argument between me and my hubby. As he was in favour that nothing should be done with the intention of getting reward or jannah. It is to be done to please Allah swt. I agree with him we need to do ibadah to please Him, to thank Him. But whats wrong if I ask my Allah swt for gift, for reward. After all He is the “Rabb”, one of the meanings which is “Giver of gifts”. And Allah swt himself mentions about reward and that’s what one is asking as I know He does not go against his promises. Offcourse my ibadah does not give me certificate or stamp of getting me reward until my creator accepts it and do mercy on me. But He has given me freedom to ask him our desires thru dua and we could ask his mercy thru the same. Subhan Allah.

Please help me out friends in knowing if thinking about rewards while praying or doing any ibadah is wrong or we both are on right direction.

I end up this post with this dua that “May Allah always show us the right path and accept our deeds”. Ameen


Taarif teri ho – Dua…



Taarif teri ho aur zuban meri ho
Mere har lamho me bus shama teri ho


Tere naamo se ho shuru mere har kaam
Mera nurani chehra de tera paigaam


Kadam jab bhi uthen rahe haq par chalen
Gunaho se paak mera daman rahe


Dua me ye bhi karun dua me wo bhi karun
Duao me tujhse milun aur me roti rahun


Aisa dil kar ata ye mere raabbul kareem
Jisme tu sirf rahe aur muhammed (saw) rahen


Taarif teri ho aur zuban meri ho
Mere har lamho me bus shama teri ho
