Surah fatiha is known to be the mother of the Quran for many reasons: it is a summary of the whole Quran, it is the first surah in the Quran, and it is the most important. We recite surah fatiha at least seventeen times a day while praying (not including sunnah); a sahabi once came to the prophet and asked the prophet to teach him the best surah in the whole Quran, the Prophet (SAS) said ‘I will teach you the most beautiful surah and you will have it memorized before we leave this masjid’. The sahabi thought that the prophet was going to teach him a long surah like Al- Baqara, instead the prophet taught him surah Fatiha, a six ayah surah. This shows the power and significance of the Quran and the surahs in it.

Allah (SWT) watches everything we do and the angles on our shoulders record every act and move we made, Allah (SWT) will have a punishment and a reward for everything we do, but what’s sad is we’re not the only ones who will suffer for our actions. Our parents will also have some sort of punishment for the wrong sins we have committed because Allah (SWT) will ask them, why didn’t you teach your children? Thus, before we are about to do something haram we have to think about our parents, do they deserve this and did they raise me to be like this; because now were not only hurting ourselves but were hurting the ones we love also.

Yawm al-Qiyāmah (judgement day) will be the most terrifying day for everyone in this world; it’s when our true faith will come out. People will be so scared and nervous that they will sweat up to their ankles, and some will be drowning in their own sweat. The disbelievers and believers will be divided; the believers will be ready and know what is going on, however the disbelievers will be running around bare and scared. The skies will fall down, the mounts will erupt, glaciers will melt and all the dead bodies will rise and wait for their test, lining up one by one.

First off, I don’t know how it’s spelled, whether its Jennah, Junnah, or Jannah. Somebody tell me. Post:

No matter how many hadiths and ayahs you read from scholars and the Quran, the hereafter (Jannah) is unimaginable. Can you even come close to seeing yourself in the finest silk clothing and sitting on golden thrones while servants made out of pearls come serve you? Or just by taking a simple sip from one of the fine rivers, you will never be thirsty again? And if you made it to the seventh level of Jannah you will be next to the prophet (SAS) and his sahaba. Allah (SWT) says “So no soul knows the delights of the eyes which is hidden for them; a reward for what they did.” [32:17]

Get the iQuran App, its awesome.

Many people think that Islam is a complicated religion because there are so my prayers and rules, hadiths and dua’s, and sunnah’s to follow; but when you think about all these rules and regulations, you have to remember that life is a test and in the hereafter is when you’re going to find out if you passed or not. All these “complications” are just answers to pass and to live happily in Jennah with servants and castles and rivers of every sweet liquid you can imagine. “The description of Paradise which the Muttaqoon have been promised is that in it are rivers of water, the taste and smell of which are never changed. Rivers of milk the taste of which will remain unchanged. Rivers of wine that will be delicious to those who drink from it and rivers of clear, pure honey. For them will be every kind of fruit and forgiveness form their Lord.” (QUran)

Allah (SWT) focuses a lot on patience and how to control our tempers, there are a lot of examples from the Prophet (SAS) and how he handeled hard times and people who would say and do such terrible things to him, but no matter what, the Prophet never became mad at anyone. Mohammad (SAS) was recorded to have said “the man is not a good wrestler; the strong man is in fact the person who controls himself at the best of times.” (Bukhari). We all have to remember that no matter what is happening in our life, there is no need to become angry because everything is a test from Allah (SWT).

The Prophet Muhammad (SAS) said “Whoever fasts in the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping for a reward from God, all his previous sins will be forgiven.”(Al-Bukhari) And whomever is fasting and makes dua, their dua will be answered right away from Allah (SWT), but what some people fail to understand is that if Allah doesn’t respond to your dua right away, it doesn’t mean he isn’t going to answer it or that He’s ignored your prayer. Instead He could be saving it for the dunya or your grave where you will then receive the blessings.
