What has Islam become?



Assalamualaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatu,

There is something terribly wrong. It breaks my heart and I feel deceived, betrayed, and in despair. I fight hard to swim against the violent current and struggle to keep my head above the waves....I plunge head first not knowing where I will go and what I will hit, but the one thing that keeps me afloat is the truth. The truth is the only thing that will save me. So I continue on my quest, my journey, to seek the truth, to grab it, and to hold on firmly as tight as I can....but what has happened to the truth? Where has it gone? It's become suppressed with falsehood and overtaken by carnal, lusting desires..

I look around and at times I don't know whether to feel ashamed, saddened , angered, or confused....

What has happened? What has become of Islam?
This beautiful religion. Where has it gone? Who has taken over?

Islam the religion of total submission to the ONE & ONLY Creator, Allah, The Almighty. THE PURE RELIGION, THE RELIGION OF TRUTH, THE RELIGION OF PEACE, JUSTICE, COMPASSION AND MERCY.
Soooo..... who are we trying to kid here?
Who are we striving to please? What and WHO are we living for? What have we done to the perfect Religion for mankind? 

"Allah is He Who created the heavens and the earth and everything between them in six days and then established Himself firmly upon the throne. You have no protector or intercessor apart from Him, So will you not pay heed?" (Qur'an 32:4)

All I see, is Islam being disgustingly distorted by hijabi bloggers, deviant sects, and ignorant pride-obsessed mongrels.
Did our beloved Nabi (sallalahu aleyhi wasselam) fight and strive for the Ummah to become a dissected, materialistic, beauty-driven, kafir-imitating world of delusion run by wealth and status? Did he (sallalahu aleyhi wasselam) spread the message of, submitting to oneself's desires and making everything haram, halal?

Any beginner in Islam or Muslim with basic knowledge knows that this was not his (sallalahu aleyhi wasselam) message or his (sallalahu aleyhi wasselam) objective. He (sallalahu aleyhi wasselam) did not fight for years and struggle endlessly for us to sit back, twiddle our two thumbs together and whistle the America national anthem!!! DID HE??

What HAS HAPPENED TO US?
WHERE HAS OUR HONOUR FOR ISLAM GONE?
WHO HAS STRIPPED IT AWAY?
IS THERE ANY PASSION LEFT FOR PRESERVING THE QUR'AN AND SUNNAH OF OUR BELOVED PROPHET (sallalahu aleyhi wasselam)???!!!

HOW DID WE ALLOW OURSELVES TO PUT OUR OWN DESIRES BEFORE ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY? THE MOST MERCIFUL? The ONE who created us from nothing and gave us EVERYTHING!  Two eyes to see His beautiful creations and reflect upon His signs, two ears to hear the beautiful recitations of the Qur'an , a nose to smell the beautiful scents of cooking spices that Allah has produced especially for us, a mouth to recite His words and speak only good speech?

But what have we done instead?
What have we been using our eyes, mouth, ears, and nose for???

We use our eyes to stare at men who are non-mahram , we use our eyes to watch senseless television shows and pornograph polluting our minds with violent intoxicants, we use our eyes to fancy the thin models in fashion magazines so that we can look JUST like them with our turban-towel hijabs, we use our eyes to read haram text messages from our non-mahram "friends".....

We use our ears to listen to music that floods our hearts with shallow false emotions, we use our ears to listen to deviated daee's talk about nonsense, we use our ears to listen to our non-mahram talking with us over the phone whispering in our ears sweet nothings, we use our ears to listen to Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber (HAHA) talk about their sad pathetic lives....

We use our nose to smell the perfume samples in the fashion magazines, we use our nose to smell the different alluring scents we want to wear for the non-mahrams, we use our nose for drugs.....

We use our mouth to talk to non-mahrams about date night tuesdays at the Olive Garden, we use our mouth to gossip and backbite about sisters when we are the ones who has the serious problem , we use our mouths to drink alcohol and eat haram food ...we use our mouth to talk about the latest fashion hijab trends and how to wear makeup and wax our eyebrows to look like dirty kafirs in the fashion magazines....


WHAT ARE WE DOING EXACTLY?
IS THIS THE KIND OF ISLAM THAT WAS PRESCRIBED FOR US BY ALLAH (OUR ONE TRUE CREATOR) ????

The disgusting amount of hijabi bloggers claiming that posing sexy and wearing FULL BLOWN CLOWN MAKEUP is PERMISSIBLE? WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ALL ARE? Princesses from Saudi Arabia??? 
What has Islam become?
Is it allowed in Islam to adorn oneself worse then a jewelry and hat kiosk standing in the middle of the mall?? La ilaha ilAllah ....SO ARE YOU worshiping the CREATOR? Or are you worshiping your ugly shallow desires? Are you taking others celebrity idols and fashion models as your gods?


"Have fear of a Day when no self will be able to compensate for another in any wayNo Intercessionwill be accepted from it, no ransom taken from it, and they will not be wronged." (Qur'an 2:48 as well as 2:123)


"You have come to us all alone / singularly just as We created you at first, leaving behind you everything We bestowed on you. We do not see your intercessors accompanying you, those you claimed were your partners with Allah. The link between you is cut. Those you made such claims for have forsaken you." (Qur'an 6:94)



UH-OH.

Do you know what this means? YOUR LIPSTICKS, LIP GLOSS, EYE SHADOW, TURBAN-TOWEL HIJAB, GOLD GUCCI JELWERRY, SILKY SATAN SCARVES, FASHION MAGAZINES, YOUR BOYFRIEND, YOUR PORNOGRAPHY DVD'S, YOUR MARIJUANA, YOUR VIP BOOTH AT THE LATEST CLUB... ALL OF THESE WILL NOT AVAIL YOU OR INTERCEDE ON YOUR BEHALF ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT....THESE THINGS WILL ONLY BRING YOU TO YOUR DEMISE, DO YOU WANT TO END UP IN THE HELLFIRE???? AUDHUBILAH. NONE OF US DO! BUT ARE WE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO AVOID IT? 

IN MY EYES, ISLAM HAS BECOME , TORN UP, AND SPAT OUT INTO A DIRTY FASHION , FORNICATING-ADULTERY COMMITTING, BEER-WINE DRINKING, FILTHY PORNOGRAPHIC, CHEAP BOUTIQUE ?? May Allah help us all, this sad, dying, weak Ummah. Ameen.

SHAME ON YOU.  REPRESENTING ISLAM IN SUCH A MANNER??! A pure, beautiful religion has now become a circus full of clowns with coloured wigs and painted faces representing "modesty" riding around on donkeys and pigs. Tell me, what do you gain out of beautifying yourselves and spreading fitnah to your fellow ignorant sisters and tempting young men who are trying to fight their temptations and stay on deen? What are you doing? Please, ask yourselves, what kind of Islam is this that you are trying to spread?


Subhan'Allah. 

"Whoever imitates a people is one of them" (Abu Dawood - hadith is sahih) 
So, tell us all, who are you really? A Muslim, a Kafir, or a Clown? Because I used to be a fashion student and a model, and I was definitely not a Muslim. I probably even looked like a clown myself. But the difference here is, I did not know about Islam, I was not yet guided by ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY. WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE THEN??????!

WHAT HAS ISLAM BECOME?

"Those are the ones who have purchased error [in exchange] for guidance, so their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided." (2:16)

Since when has Islam become a cheap price where we sell it for other USED GOODS? We throw Islam around and kick it like a soccer ball ASTUGHFURALLAH. HOW DARE YOU!!? 
Since when was it OK for Muslims to take on the TV screen and imitate the KAFIRS and become PATHETIC MUSIC SINGERS AND IDIOTIC ACTRESSES? WHERE IS YOUR SENSE OF SHAME ?
Did our beloved nabi (Sallalahu aleyhi wasselam) go through years of ridicule, harassment, and torture FOR US TO IMITATE THE KAFIRS AND BECOME ONE OF THEM? 

Where in the Qur'an and Sunnah has it stated that it is permissible to listen to music, sell alcohol and SHISHA, and abandon the hijab? These "so-called Muslims" innovating these lowly new habits that encourage other youth, women, and men to do the same?! All for what? A cheap price for this temporary world? You sell your sense of worth, your pride and honour, your true value as a human being...for WHAT? To get your 15 minutes of fame on the stage as a puppet? 

ALLAH CREATED YOU FOR THIS? IS THAT WHAT YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE IS? WHAT HAS ALLAH DONE TO YOU FOR YOU TO HATE HIM SO MUCH???? TELL ME!!!!!? 
TO GO AGAINST YOUR OWN CREATOR AND SELL YOUR SOUL AND RELIGION FOR A CHEAP PRICE? 
You know what a prostitute or a pimp is? They sell their bodies and their women for a lowly price, while at the same time selling their souls and self worth. We sell our religion, the most precious gift to mankind for WHAT? Islam is a way of life, and it the answers and cure to all problems and diseases (mainly of the heart) yet we choose to leave it behind and give it up to satisfy our desires and lust for money, men, women, fame, and wealth. 
Think about it. Are we so weak in faith that we have to sit and question what exactly is the direct link and comparison between the two? 

Without Allah we are NOTHING, we are NOBODY, we are NO ONE. So don't you dare be walking around thinking you are the world's next best thing, because in the eyes of Allah, you are just another name on the list for the angels of death...be lucky He preserved you this long, you still have time to repent before it's too late...

WHAT HAS ISLAM BECOME? 

DEVIANT SECTS SEPARATING THE TRUE ISLAM...innovating, fabricating, and dictating what is and isn't in Islam. Such a serious danger this is and yet so many are walking around with a blindfold not knowing which kind of oven they are walking into....Muslims making practically EVERYHING HARAM..while other Muslims making practically EVERYTHING HALAL...
Subhana'Allah...
Picking and choosing what WE want to follow in the Qur'an and Sunnah , introducing and innovating what IS NOT in the Qur'an and Sunnah ? Are you trying to imitate the Jewish Rabi's ? Who Allah condemned ? They KNEW THE TRUTH YET THEY HID IT and not only that, they distorted, removed, added things that were NOT EVEN PART OF THE WORD OF ALLAH.... ARE YOU TRYING TO FOLLOW IN THE SAME FOOTSTEPS? Who do you think you are? Think about yourself and remember your LORD. He is THE ALL POWERFUL, THE OMNIPOTENT ! And what are you? A NOBODY. You think you have power? Remember His words and think about yourselves, TURN TO ALLAH BEFORE YOU RETURN TO HIM :


"And of the people are some who say, "We believe in Allah and the Last Day," but they are not believers. They [think to] deceive Allah and those who believe, but they deceive not except themselves and perceive [it] not. In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.And when it is said to them, "Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are but reformers." Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not." (2:8-12)

 " O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake of the Hour (of Judgement) is a terrible thing.On the Day you see it every nursing mother will be distracted from that [child] she was nursing, and every pregnant woman will abort her pregnancy, and you will see the people [appearing] intoxicated while they are not intoxicated; but the punishment of Allah is severe. And of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge and follows every rebellious devil. It has been decreed for every devil that whoever turns to him - he will misguide him and will lead him to the punishment of the Blaze." (22:1-4)

We all complain and cry that we can't get along. We start wars and fight each other because we are obsessed with our pride. We want money, power, status. We think we are strong and powerful. We rule the world like we are the only ones living on it. We pollute the earth, we corrupt the youth, we follow our desires. We think about fashion, beauty, and material wealth. We forget about our sisters and brothers who suffer half way across  the world because we are too busy causing trials and tribulations amongst each other. We think we have it all. We think we are the strongest creatures on the face of this earth. We fear the creation rather than the Creator. But what we fail to realise is just one violent wind storm ,earthquake,  snowfall.. and we are humbled. One disease affecting our lungs, our brain, our heart...and we are humbled. One calamity where we are stripped of our wealth, our status, our power...we are humbled. We are born weak and we will die weak. Human being's biggest mistake is thinking they have ALL the power in the world. We think we don't need Allah, but the truth is, without HIM we are NOTHING, NOBODY, ZERO. So why do we keep fooling ourselves? We think everything belongs to us. But only do we belong to Allah, and to Him we will return. We think that we run the show . Forever and always, the world is ours.  But it is only because we think this way, that I ask everyone,  


WHAT HAS ISLAM BECOME?


May Allah forgive me for anything that I've said that has offended you, anything good I've said is from Allah and anything bad is from my own self and I seek refuge in Allah from Shaitan the accursed. Ameen!

  1. I agree with you 100%, Alhamdulilah I learned about Islam long before I ever met any Muslims. Sometimes I am disheartened and shocked by the way they act. Insha'allah, Allah will keep us strong to follow the ways that He has ordered us to follow.

    Though we do have to bear in mind that there is nothing wrong with wearing make-up, perfume, and nice clothes for our husbands, and we should be encourage to do so. Outside of the home, now that is a different story.

    Masha'allah, lovely post as always.

  2. Well...you are definitely passionate about Islam Mashallah! Hehe
    I admit I did think the post was a little harsh in parts but I understand your point and you are right. It is disheartening to see the state of our ummah. Appearances seem to count more than actual faith and a relationship with Allah. :(

  3. Mashaa Allah it is beautifully written and heartfelt....Signs of the Judgement day are very near and our very own brothers and sisters in Islam turn against each other...The pure love for Islam has been broken down to satisfy our worldly desire....Mashaa Allah JazakAllah for this beautiful reminder Ukhty

  4. Very nicely written and informative even though harsh. The truth is sister we r very easily corrupted by the Satan through the medium of internet, drugs and prostitution which r much easier available than say 10 years ago plus u have the enemies of Islam who try to corrupt our religion by all means.But we as Muslims should overcome these fitnas by proper upbringing of our children according to Islamic teachings.

  6. Salam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa baraktuhu Sister,

    Thank you for writing this post... I as well agree 100% you are right on point with your statements :-D...I too WAS that beauty driven, fashion hijabi blogger thinking I am benefiting myself and my sisters, when in fact I was keeping up appearances (playing into the game) for the Kafir. I have deleted all those blogs, tweets, and facebook associated with that non-sense and have focused more on Islam.

    As you stated in your last paragraph: "We all complain and cry that we can't get along. We start wars and fight each other because we are obsessed with our pride. We want money, power, status. We think we are strong and powerful. We rule the world like we are the only ones living on it. We pollute the earth, we corrupt the youth, we follow our desires. We think about fashion, beauty, and material wealth. We forget about our sisters and brothers who suffer half way across the world because we are too busy causing trials and tribulations amongst each other. We think we have it all. We think we are the strongest creatures on the face of this earth. We fear the creation rather than the Creator. But what we fail to realise is just one violent wind storm ,earthquake, snowfall.. and we are humbled. One disease affecting our lungs, our brain, our heart...and we are humbled. One calamity where we are stripped of our wealth, our status, our power...we are humbled. We are born weak and we will die weak. Human being's biggest mistake is thinking they have ALL the power in the world. We think we don't need Allah, but the truth is, without HIM we are NOTHING, NOBODY, ZERO. So why do we keep fooling ourselves? We think everything belongs to us. But only do we belong to Allah, and to Him we will return. We think that we run the show . Forever and always, the world is ours. But it is only because we think this way, that I ask everyone,What has Islam become?"

    This should not be taken lightly and be as a reminder that our live here on Earth is only for a fleeting moment.

    Jazak'Allah Khairan Sister :-D

    P.S I enjoy your blog and now a follower...keep up the excellent work.
