Return & Pray | Ft. Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef (rA)

Even a small fly can distract us during Salah. But when it came to Umar (RA) even a deadly poisoned knife wasn’t able to spoil his unwavering commitment.The resilience shown by the Imam, who continued leading the Salah despite being gravely injured……serves as a reminder of the Khushu we seem to have lost.Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef (rA) talks about Salah not just being a ritualistic worship but a fundamental pillar upon which our faith stands.It’s not just a routine but a transformative experience.It’s a sacred dialogue with Allah. Through Salah, we build a spiritual fortress that shields us from the pitfalls of sin and guides us toward righteousness.As we pray heavily during these last 10 nights of Ramadan, let us heed the words of Allah and His Messenger (PBUH)…Recognizing Salah as a beacon of guidance in our lives. May our prayers serve as a source of strength, drawing us closer to Allah (swt).

How Husain Went from a Former NFL Football Player to Guiding People Towards Allah?

The success of others is what fuels our desire to do more, and to move forward with hope.  It might also make you “jealous” in some part of your heart, but as long as it’s constructive, you’re good.  We’re all feeling stuck at some point in our lives, be it family, work, or connection with Allah.  And we do know that Dua is the language of the heart and a heartfelt conversation with Him (swt).  But how to make Duas that actually bring a positive change in your life?  What makes a person consistently obsessed with doing whatever it takes to achieve?   That’s what our guest Husain Abdullah has shared in this interview.  How Allah carved his journey from being an NFL Football Player to guiding the Ummah to Deen.

Motherhood in The Sight of Allah - How The Quran Speaks To Moms | Taimiyyah Zubair

Allah knows the gut-wrenching pain a mother has to go through to protect, sacrifice her own desires, and raise her child.That's why He treats them a certain way like no other.He comforts and instructs them to have faith in Him.If we look through the Quran, Allah talks in a motivational and comforting tone when dealing with mothers.Whether it's the mother of Maryam (AS) and her desire to supplicate her child in the service of Allah......or it's about Maryam (AS) when she was blessed with the news of being granted a son as a prophet......or when Allah comforted the distressed mother of Musa (AS) by ensuring he was fed by her, even when he was raised in the house of an enemy.Islam also encourages balance and moderation in every aspect of life and mothers taking some time off……won’t make them selfish, but it gears them up with more strength to provide the right environment for their children.A mom goes through challenging moments, sleepless nights, and tiring schedules...Just because she envisions her child to be the best of both worlds, grow into a resilient Muslim, and be a source of Sadaqa Jariyah.

The Future of Islamic Life Coaching

Muslim community all over the world has been fed negative beliefs.

Allah is With Those Who Are Patient | Sh. Muhammad Alshareef (rA)

How often do you find solace amid the chaos?In today’s podcast…Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef (rA) talks about how everything is in Allah’s control.It’s all about our belief in Him and His power. As humans, we face things that can have drastic consequences…if things go downhill.But the most important thing that can single-handedly infuse us with hope is our faith in Allah (SWT).One of the best examples we have is the Battle of Badr. The odds of Muslims winning the upper hand were slim to none…However…What held those resilient Muslims together……was their die-hard love for Rasul Allah (PBUH) and unshakeable Iman.And the rest is history.Here you’ll get to reimagine:How Allah helped those who believed in Him and stepped up.A story of a boy who went up against a tyrant (and won!).How the darkest and evilest people have been no match for a drop of Iman of a firm believer.Why patience is the key to unwinding countless opportunities for growth.

E39 | How To Rise With The Tide of Prices & Anxiety | Muhammad Alshareef

Link referenced in this episode: https://www.TheRisingTideChallenge.comThe Prophet ﷺ shared this beautiful analogy with us:In an authentic narration [Bukhari] He ﷺ told us the example of the believers and disbelievers is like a boat.The believers have the top deck- so they can easily access water.The disbelievers have the lower decks, and need to ask the people upstairs every time they need water,So they decide “hang on, why don’t we just cut a hole in the bottom of the ship, so we can get our own water?”And if the believers don’t take action, then everybody drowns.Now maybe you’ve heard this hadith, probably lots of times in your life,But you know right now I think it’s meaning really resonates the most.Because it feels like we’re all drowning.We’re all feeling the economic pressure.And the natural reaction in times like these is to become complacent.To hide and not take risks,But not acting is what’s causing us to drown in the first place.Look, the only solution we have right now is to ride with the tides.That means stepping out of our comfort zone, taking calculated risks, and leaving the rest to Allah.
