In Islam we believe that whatever wealth we acquire is due to God’s Grace. We also believe that man values and loves wealth; that is the human condition. As Muslims, God has commanded us to spend out of that which we love—in this case it would be our wealth. We firmly hold the belief that when you spend in the way of Allah, Allah grants you comfort and ease.
An instance that acts as an example of this is of one of my friends who gave $200 as Sadqah (Charity) when she was jobless. Her intention was not to get a job, she was donating her money just for the sake of donating. However, about a week later, she got the exact job that she had wanted. In this way, Allah multiplied that which she had spent in His way.
There have been many instances in our own live’s as well, where after spending in the way of Allah, some problem or issue that was troubling our mind was solved. I’m sure you’ve all had similar experiences as well. If you have a story to share, leave it down below! ⬇️
May this be a continued reminder that spending in the way of Allah is a way to purify our wealth, earn Allah’s pleasure, and ease our anxieties.
Dreams of Changing
The more we move towards day dreaming, the more we move away from being realistic. Nevertheless, we shouldn’t lose the dream of changing and overcoming bitter realities by becoming drowning in them. - Alireza Panahian
كلما تقدمنا نحو الحلم اليوم ، كلما ابتعدنا عن كوننا واقعيين. ومع ذلك ، لا ينبغي أن نفقد الحلم في تغيير الحقائق المريرة والتغلب عليها من خلال الغرق فيها.

-My Soul Longs for Home- Empty feeling. My heart yearns for the sight of the two domes. When will my eyes, my sight, my ears, my senses feel the love of this Holy Land. For every year, I beg my Lord, has the time come? Will I receive an invitation from the Holy Land. From Sayed al-Shuhada. Please, my soul can’t bear being away from the Holy Sight. As if I can’t breathe anymore. I know. I’m aware. It makes sense. Now, I recognize. When your servants call out your name. O’Hussain! O’Abbas! O’Ali! And I swear by your names. I am physically away from home. But my soul is at home. When will I reunite with Heaven? When will I reunite with the Kings of Paradise? When will my desperate soul reunite with the land of Karbala?
