Unlocking Your Heart

By Fadia Bint Ismail

I listened to a very interesting lecture by Sh Mirza Yawar Baig about how to unlock your heart and how sometimes certain things causes our hearts to be blind.

For the most part i believe many of us and even myself fail to comprehend or to ascertain what is true and what is not and i think that Mirza Yawar Baig’s lecture really brought a new way of looking at things that may be affecting us in ways we fail to understand.

There are many things we can do to unleash this power of truly unlocking the things in our hearts that are holding us back but the greatest gift we have is the Quran which is a true reminder for us all as well as a reflection.

You need to ask yourself whether your heart is locked or is it open…and how will you know this? Are you following the signs of Allah?

We are continuously reminded to read Surah Fatihah and it is the Surah we read first when performing prayers it is affirming that we belong to Allah and Allah alone.

We may sometimes feel that when we read the Quran that what is written does not relate to us, but that is where we fail to understand that when we search for ourselves within the Quran that is when we will unlock our hearts and we will find inner peace.

One major thing many of us suffer from is that we see with our knowledge not with our eyes and this is why sometimes our hearts are blind.

If you have the knowledge to see reality then your heart is not blind. You and i both know that even if you are super knowledgeable it does not mean that you can see things clearly.

For the most part i think that generally when our hearts are affected our entire body is affected and my understanding of his lecture was first try and find yourself, understand the Qalam of Allah and try and see reality first and to not let our hearts be blinded.

This is a reminder first and foremost to myself



Life Lessons

By Fadia Bint Ismail

I always think to myself I have not had the life experience of those around me and sometimes part of me feels like I missed out on so many things…but those are just things and everyone’s path is directed toward something different, by the Will and Power of Allah (SAW).

I listened to a very good lecture by Sheikh Nouman Ali Khan, he has been one of my inspirations. His lectures are simple and easy to understand and he discusses things that directly affect each and every one of us. His lecture titled “Get through hard times with patience” …easier said than done right ? but when I thought about what he said, each and everything in our life is a gift from Allah, any problems we face are not permanent.

One of the most difficult things that I see from others close to me is that when they believe they have everything they kind of loose their dependency on Allah, and this is where they go wrong because everything we have only comes from  one source and that is from Allah.

Sheikh Nouman Ali Khan always says that we should train our heart and our tongue because what our tongue says our heart feels and this is usually how people create opinions about us, bad or good.

Please guys listen to his lectures…..and don’t form bad opinions like others who have listened to him saying..” oh he doesn’t wear a fez in his lectures on Youtube” a Fez doesn’t make you a good scholar…just look at those Ulemah who dress in turbans and long cloaks …are they perfect and more pious..

So listen to him and tell me what you think …
