So only 2 days are left for going to umrah inshAllah...I have one thing that's irking me and i'm not working upon it..As usual i had thought of raising my iman level before going to umrah like read the translation of Quran or reading books on the companions of Prophet Mohammad sallallaho alayhi wassallam or anything pertaining to increasing the taqwa but alas! as always I merely think and the action is missing! This time I am in the lowest spirit of eeman..Allah help me out.
Well, just now went to order an abaya each for my sis,mom and me.Then the girls whom i had gone with + my young sis and my elder cousin's wife- all went to yum Yum tree..I went for the 1st time...Man! what sad plight..I know i am no one to say this ..nor am i much better than anyone else but as a generalised comment which includes me..Its quite bad how we all have been trapped in the snares of this world..long menus of food+ malls where we spend hours of shopping wasting money on things we possibly dont want..its very sad! The girls and boys there were totally arabs and a small %age of pakis and indians wud have been there just that mingled in them i couldnt make out...Boys were mostly in bermudas..man I hate it i hate that item whoever invented it...Well boys can wear it in the name of fashion but when it comes to sunnah of wearing a pant or any clothing piece above your ankle they feel embarassed! How ironical! (or maybe they don't know about that sunnah but then that's another story--- what are their parents doing??) This whole culture of shunning all religious books and sticking just to QUran and Bukhari or any hadith book is somewhat affecting people...(that's again another story).. Ok back to Yum Yum tree..the girls were in gaudy abayas (which answered to my wondering this morning that who in the world wears these abayas? But on a positive note atleast they wear abaya!!) Flashy mobiles, fashion,makeup .sad very sad! where are our umar and fatimas?? Why are we as youths not attaining taqwa..Where is our iman? our fear of Allah? our zest for da'wah? Why can't we lower our gaze?? why do we give a damn about the western culture and what others will think of us?? Why dont we make Allah our priority? Alas!! ya Allah you are the most merciful, you love a human 70 times that of a mother then do fill our hearts with iman and grant us the highest level of taqwa..ameen ameen.
Ok nothing more is coming to my mind...will post soon..that is b4 going for umrah inshALlah...then after that obviously! I still dunno where I would be going first- Mekkah or MAdinah. I have a list on a piece of paper of all those people who ask for dua..coz i tend to forget and also, i like to do dua by specially naming that person..
Whoever reads this please do dua for me and the ummat.....
