Salaam. I'm from green Bangladesh.

Who benefits from so-called Jihad?

Salaam Sayyidi and Salaam to all respected members

Today I was watching a coverage on ‘London Terror Attack at Westminster’ on youtube. I could not scroll down the comments since there was far too much hate speech and unspeakable words against the muslims although the investigaton have not started yet. It seems that to the West ‘Any terror attack=Muslim’.

I was wondering when did this all started? This so called Jihadi movement? Who arms them, fund them and train them? Who benefits from them? It is all a political game, isn’t it? If imperial giants like The USA, Russia, and others really wanted them to be uprooted and wiped out with their super military resources, how could these handful of brainwashed men possibly stand a chance?

State

Salaam Sayyyidi  and Salaam to all respected members

I have got a few questions.

If I were sinful right now or maybe for many years, am I away from Allah?

Similar questions regarding the inhabitants of Hell, would they be away from Allah’s love?

I have learnt a new thought that no matter what, where or how we are, good or bad, people of paradise or hell fire, we are always facing to Allah. Everything in the cosmos is facing that Direction. Perhaps anything other than Allah is facing to Allah.

A thank-you note and a question

Salaam Sayyidi and Salaam to everyone

1.Sayyidi,last year you wrote a sentence:

“Sadly for me to be truthful is far more suited than being pious”

I could not understand it that time. Now I am beginning to see the depths of these words. All I can say is thank you.

2. It has been more than eight years I have been performing five times prayer a day.
But all these years I saw nothing.
I experienced nothing.
No sign of any Divine Ray.
All I see is my Self repeating verses of the Quran, making Dhikr, standing up,bowing down and so on.

I feel like a hypocrite, Nafs thinks that it is doing an extemely pious deed while there is no connection with Allah whatsoever.

What might the possible reason behind this? Any hint?

Jihad

Salaam Sayyidi and Salaam everyone,

There have been many VIOLENT Jihad (bloodshed,use of weapons etc.) during the time of the Prophet.
I was wondering WHO are supposed to participate in VIOLENT Jihad?

And AGAINST WHOM?

And for WHAT PURPOSE/INTENTION?

Being in the company of Allah

Salaam

Dara once wrote to me:

” We think being with Allah is night-long prayer we do.
Sometimes to be in the company of Allah means to be lonely for 20 years or 15 years, just experience that duration, for Allah’s company that is mere blink of an eye. ”

I wrote it here in hope that someday some lonely and confused minds might find a great solace from these words.

Shakir

On Bismillah

Salaam Sayyidi and Salaam to everyone.

I have a question regarding Bismillah.
It is mentioned in this pattern:”Bi-Ism-Allah”(With/by/by means of Allah’s Name, Ism).
And not “Bi-Allah” (by means of/with/by/in Allah).

I would like to know about the significance of Name.

Is there answers available for the usage of this pattern?

On Qidam again

Salaam Sayyidi and Salaam everyone

Two questions arised on Qidam again.

Given that each soul in presence of Divine made decision then and there in Qidam: To love Allah, or to love other-than-Allah. And given that this life is an investigation/projection of that primordial decision,

1 . Are we going back to Qidam again?
In other words , are Qidam, Akhirah, Azal the same terms?
2. What could be the wisdom to place us in this marvellous planet earth? We could still be staying in Qidam, loving Allah or other than Allah being in there! Why this short life span upon this planet?
