Call on your Lord and Allah will be with you as the Ever-Powerful and Exalted in Might

  Welcome to today's episode of a . Today's episode is about father of three children. This father was a very rich man. This is an imaginary story which has a very nice meaning. One day he filled a big box with pearls, gold and rubies. This box was very expensive and very luxurious. It was very heavy… but he carried it and put it in front of his three children that he truly loves and told them: "you are all my children… and I have decided to give this box to you all" and he opened the box in front of them and asked each one of them to reach out with their hands and take only a hand-full of jewels. Only as much as his palms can carry, but only one time.
  The eldest brother, of course, has much larger hands and so he digged his hands deep into the pile of jewels and took out lots of pearls, but only one time. The middle      brother, who also has large hands, he put his big hands into the box and took out so many jewels. Now was the turn of the youngest brother, whose hands were small compared with his brothers. He looked at his brothers…each one having so many pearls and jewels…and looks to his hands that were small and weak. So what did he do? Nothing…he did not reach out with his hands…but rather…he ran into his father's arms and asked him: "Do you love me?" so the father replied "I love you so much, my son" so he told his father "I don't want to take my share on my own. Can you give me my share, with your own hands?" so the father looked at his other two children and asked them: "Didn't you both           get your share?" He closed the box and gave the entire box to his youngest son.
  Why am I telling you this story? You and I every day, our weak strengths stop us from talking everything we desire in life. Then why don't you seek the Mighty one? Why don't you go to Allah Subhanaho wa taala? Why do we always make the wrong choices and only depend on our strengths which are weak, and we know that we are weak. I am telling you this story and God is my raw model. Why don't you go to God and tell God "All human beings and your creators, just like this man, all those children are his, but I have come to you, please help me. Of course you will have to work and exert effort but you will go to him to choose for you and to give you. There is a beautiful statement that says "In normal cases, a person who has a father does not get worried, then how would someone get worried if they have a God?" Wow…usually people with a father, especially a strong father, does not need to worry…then how can people get worried if they have Allah?
  Please when you are in trouble, and life is giving you a hard time, then go to God and tell him "My hands are small and my capabilities are limited and weak…make me strong and you give me what you wish. Please make things easier for me. Please fix my problems. They are much stronger than me and I am so weak. I have no one but you. If my father protects me…then imagine how much protection God will give me…always ask him…and then it will be a .

Thank you.

Oh Allah Almighty, gather us in Paradise

Hope 5 The today is about a very beautiful thing, but unfortunately many people do not feel it, live with it or dream of it. It is Paradise. Your utmost hope is to enter Paradise. Anyone say: "I hope to go to paradise, enjoy in it, be with my family and beloved therein, enjoy its palaces, towers, rivers, and seas; I hope I please to Allah, meet the prophet therein".
  I will tell you a joyful story. If a small child says to you: "I will give you big thing, what do you believe he can give you?" The biggest thing you can expect is 100 pounds. But if a bank manager says to you: "You have a big thing with me" you can expect 200,000, you except something complying with the weight of the person. Now if a head of state or a king says to you: "You have a large thing with me". What do you expect, one million? Of course not less than one million. If the owner of the world says: "I prepare to my righteous slaves something that no eye sees, no ear hears of and no human being can imagine". This thing is of course something which is not comparable with those promises of a small child, a bank manager or a president or a king.
  The compensation of Allah promises is Paradise. If you want the Paradise, you have to work for it. The dream of paradise is not a drug but the Prophet Muhammad never mentioned paradise without relate it with hard work in our life. The Prophet Muhammad (PBBUH) says: "Paradise is under the feet of mothers." Be kind with your mother you will go to Paradise. The Prophet Muhammad (PBBUH) said
, "Allah makes the way to Paradise easy for him who treads the path in search of knowledge.'' Work, make people happy, learn useful things and share them with others you will go to Paradise and will have the sustaining smile forever and .                                                                                                                                                                                               Smile of hope

Treat people with your values & norms and not theirs

    Welcome everyone to anew . Today episode is a from England. In England, There's famous park called ''Hyde park''. While taking a walk in the Hyde Park, I saw an old man. It was quite cold; he was standing near a tree &trying to climb it. He was indeed an old man. Yet he wanted to climb it. I looked at the top of the tree to know what he was searching for &I found a small nest with a small bird crying very loud. Apparently the wind blows the nest &both the nest and the bird was now crumbed between two boughs. The bird kept screaming and screaming then, I realized that the man only wanted to help the bird and save it from the fix.   
  The man tried to climb the tree& failed couple of times &then, when he succeeded& wanted to save the bird from the nest, the bird bit him hardly that he screamed out of loud! One minute later, after he saw that the wound wasn't huge, he climbed again & the bird again bit him harder. He climbed for the third & the fourth times & the bird bit him again and again. Oh! God the man was bit consecutively this appeared to be useless! The friend of that old man was there watching what was happening. He blamed him for not learning the lesson even after several times. And on contrary, he's persist ant on what he's doing. The old man told him a great statement, the eagle's nature is to bite strangers but my nature is to be compassionate and loving. The bird will keep on biting me and I will never stop being kind &compassionate towards it. The fourth time he succeeded in saving the bird, replacing the nest on a stable bough, the bird was finally calm.
   It is true that the man's finger was bitten several times in different places, but this kind man's words kept echoing in my head. ''The bird's nature is to bite the strangers but my nature is to be compassionate and loving towards others.'' treat people with your values & norms and not theirs. No matter how they're hard in their nature, no matter how rude they are, never imitate them. If all the people mean, just be the good example. Do you know how Allah treats us? Our sins are numerous but he treats us with his mercy not according to our deeds. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) taught us a very nice prayer ((oh Allah! don't treat us according to our deeds but treat us with your mercy &forgiveness.)).Never return a rude treatment, by someone who's ill mannered, by a similar treatment. Always remember that your norms and behaviors are different than theirs. Can you understand this point, fellow friends? Today in our country we could see several examples for people who harm others in different ways. Don't pay attention to them. If all the people decided to be ill-mannered, stay away from them .Stay as you are, and don't degrade yourself to others low manners. Keep your good manners, keep the .

The story of the founder of FedEx (Be Ambitious)

      Welcome in a new . The of today is about somebody who established a company, a very famous company named FedEx. This well-known company is worldwide carrier for packages, clothes, anything; from here to any country in the world, FedEx will provide such services to you. FedEx has aircrafts, train wagons; it is very big company. Who established FedEx? The founder of this company is Fred Smith, an American who was ex-student in Yale University.
  The of this man is very strange. I will tell you this and advise you not to think that you will fail; even, if you fail and you have a good idea, be patient, adhere to it. When Fred Smith conceived his idea, nobody in the world thought that it would be useful to invest in carrying packages from a country to another country. Fred Smith submitted his concept as the graduation project in his final year at the university. It was his dream that he wanted to achieve. They told them at the university that any student who brought a good dream would have high mark. Therefore, Smith submitted his dream to transport packages, couriers and anything around the world during two days. The teachers gave him zero because he submitted a credulous idea, an unconceivable one. They told him that his silly idea and imaginary dreams are useless.
  One of his teachers sympathized with him and told him to change the project and he would give him the full mark. But Smith told his sympathetic teacher to keep his marks, because he would keep his project, his dream. For Smith it was not a matter of marks. You, boys and girls, you go to the school, to the college, to obtain high marks. I don’t mean that anyone has to go tomorrow saying to his teacher that he does not want marks because he has a dream. Do not misunderstand my speech, we are about to proceed to the final year examination; parents will be angry with me if you misunderstand and miss-interpret my idea. Smith said to his teacher to keep the plus marks the teacher would give him for changing his project and he would keep his dream despite the zero mark that the jury gave him.
  After his graduation, smith with a group of five or six of his friends began their project with 8 packages. Only eight packages at the beginning lead now to millions of packages circulating around the world. They lost money at the beginning of the project and people laughed at them; their parents advised them to stop the project. But they continued to fight for their dream.
Now FedEx is one of the largest companies in the world. Its aircrafts circulate around the Globe carrying packages. Fred Smith is still famous, but nobody knows his teacher who gave him zero for his project. Failure at the beginning of the project did not make him hesitate to insist to achieve his dream. Grasp on your dream, insist on it; if you fail once, don't be discouraged, and continue till you succeed. At that time believe me you enjoy a large .

Fear God

     Welcome to a new . Today’s lesson is how we can find a way to fear and incorporate Allah the most gracious and compassionate in our relationship with one another. We all believe that to worship God in prayer and fasting is enough. There is a presence of God in the social context. We all need to take care of our relationship between Allah the most compassionate and each other. You know that God forgives us for our shortcomings, but he doesn’t forgive us for the people we hurt until we mend said issues.
  This   is based in Syria, and it is about a man that was married to a woman. The Syrian man was very rich and was blessed with a great fortune as well as buildings and companies. However his wife started to notice that he was changing. She felt that he was hiding a secret which his wife started to feel. It came to light that he got married without her knowledge. The woman eventually finds out but remained quiet out of respect and dignity. She said “I will not let him know that I am aware of his marriage”. She therefore, remained good to her husband and continued performing her duties as wife (in a respectful way).
  The man eventually passed away, and as his will was being read and distributed between her and her children. She refused to inherit the money due to the presence of the other wife. She went to her children and said “that their father was married to another woman, and that they should give her share of wealth to her. Do you see the presence of God in family and social matters? To have faith and to worship Allah the most gracious and compassionate does not only mean to wear a (Hijab), or recite the Quran and to fast Ramadan is not the only way to worship Allah the most compassionate. But to be kind, fair and polite is a considered greatness in the eyes of Allah the most compassionate.
  This is smile of hope is so beautiful because as the woman and her children sent the money to the other wife, her reply was shocking and heart-filling: she said “I don’t deserve this money because he divorced me a week ago. These two women are great and are a true blessing from God. Because now a day you will find that spouses and children fight over inheritances. But that’s not when you see a smile of hope. A comes from sharing and opening up your heart to more meaningful things.
