Some Clarifications

Okay, so in some of my posts, I mentioned reading Harun Yahya and visiting suhaibwebb.com. The problem is, I found out that Harun Yahya is a deviant and has a hidden agenda and should be avoided. And suhaibwebb.com is not a completely authentic site. There is some khair in it but it hasĀ  liberal posts so it should be avoided. There a lot of more websites, deviated people and organizations to stay away from. I’ll posts the lists as soon as possible insha’Allah.

Crazy things are going on in the world and crazy people are “teaching” Islam. I spent the last 4-5 days researching about them and now I think I’ve gone crazy myself. I’ve been making du’a that Allah guides me and helps me to find the Haqq (truth). Everyone claims to be following the Sunnah and I’ve been learning from people who also claim to follow the Sunnah and follow the way of the Salaf (the first three generations of Islam). They teach using evidences from the Qur’an and Sunnah but I’m confused as to why they do a few things that go against the Sunnah. I’m now trying to find out whether this is an issue of legitimate Ikhtilaaf or if they really have left the Ahl-us-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah by not following some of the things that the ‘Aqeedah of the Salaf requires.

Now what I need is to discuss with some students of knowledge & QUESTION the ‘scholars’ who are *supposedly* opposing the Sunnah while following the Sunnah. Does that even make any sense? Oh well, although l’m temporarily putting learning Islam on a hold (for a few days), I can still at least read the Qur’an and/or act upon what I know to concretely be from the Sunnah.

May Allah Guide us all, from the scholars to the students of knowledge to the common people. And May He accept from us our efforts and good deeds. Ameen.

Updates on my Life

Ahhh! I didn’t get any financial aid for Spring 2012 bec of some weird reason so now I have to carefully pick my classes and limit them to like, 2 or something. I’m so mad. Anyways, I’m done with 2 finals, got one to go, so I’m happy. Tomorrow is BIO Review Class and my test is this Thursday on the 15th. This is an important week-there are so many things going on, I’m praying everything goes well.

With exactly 14 minutes until my internet shuts down (yes, my dad put parental control on the internet because I surfed the Web too much but i’m glad he did), I came online to post a piece of advice:

Always, always, always listen to your parents no matter what. Make them happy, and you’ll make Allah happy. And remember, our slightest words or actions can hurt parents deeply, it can shatter them completely; we probably forget because we’re too busy with school and friends, but parents want our company. And they want our love. I always had communication problems with my dad and I always thought he was wrong and he always told me I had an ego problem. At your age, you’ll feel like you’re right but maybe you’re not. It’s the teenage “i-know-it-all” phase or it’s Shaitan, or it’s your ego. Or maybe it’s everything. For me, it was everything. I begged Allah for Mercy, Guidance, and understanding. He listened to me.

Allah listened to me.

Finally, after 2-3 years of struggling, I found my way. I found that I was more wrong than I thought I was and my dad was more right than I thought he was. And now, my dad is about to find out that I am more sensible than he thought I was. Alhamdulillah.

I thank Allah so much for guiding me and helping me and giving me amazing friends and the best dad in the world.

Remember, no matter what problem you have, if you ask Allah sincerely while trying your best, He’ll remove it from you.

Because Allah loves you.
