Would Islam Affect My Cultures?


Here is the latest video from overcome.tv. Hope you all enjoy it:-)

Isa, originally from Colombia, was impressed by the knowledge of God that young Muslims had. And he liked how Islam encouraged questions, whilst his previous faith discouraged them. But could he make the changes Islam asked of him? And would Islam be compatible with his British / Colombian culture?

Verily In the Remembrance of ALLAH Do Hearts Find Contentment!



As we all are aware of the fact that Allah is the maker of everything, He is the greatest of all.
He has provided his people such a large number of valuable endowments throughout the life even we cannot thank Allah enough. Consequently, Allah simply needs recognition of His God-like. An ideal method for recognition of Almighty Allah is to supplicate each day five times.
Allah is aware of every single thing; he knows what you have inside your heart.
He has provided us humans with the all required senses, hearing, the capability to tune in, to see and talk, there are numerous different favors of Allah encompassed us.
 People are much occupied in their lives that they think it is difficult to set aside time for recognition of Almighty.

Following verses is a proof that the hearts find rest in the remembrance of their Lord Only:

My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for You are the Best of those who show mercy! (23:118)
The greatest blessing from Allah is the Holy Quran. It comes with so much knowledge and is known as a complete code of life. This verse clearly shows that He is the only one that we must look forward in order to have mercy, He knows it all, and He will make a way out for all of us. With His mercy, our hearts can find the required rest and only with His mercy; everything will get right.

[There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer; the All-Seer] (19: 65)
This verse is proof that Allah is with you wherever you go. Allah Almighty knows about the needs of all of us, and He favors us with acknowledgment of our all our wishes. When anyone of you calls Him, he hears it all, and the time He is summoned He replies to it all.
So you must pray to Allah as it is clearly stated that contentment comes to those who bow down to Him. People, who frequently ask forgiveness from their Lord, will get the actual contentment.
Allah has stated that He loves his people more than seventy mothers can do, there is no one else who could love you more. And He is the one that we need, and He is the one who is the caretaker of all.

So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the excellent reward of the Hereafter (3: 148)
The more you remember Allah, the calmer you are. When you talk about Allah, you can instantly feel the calmness and indeed, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find peace.
Allah is the only one that we must have, you can lose everything for Allah, and you will still have everything that you need. Allah is the most merciful and the most kind and He will guide you the way and will ignite the paths of success.

 These verses will fix your life and mend your heart. Bow down to Allah as soon as possible; there are many ways you can make your relationship stronger with Allah. Stay safe!
