he was 100% against preaching to unwilling people, too, and all for bringing religion into the lives of those who wanted it. he would often say that those who pray loudly in front of others were the worst kind of believers

what a cool dude

it makes me sad when people mischaracterize jesus like he was literally the nicest dude ever like he could be anyones bff if he tried because he was so rad like i hate christians who make him seem rude like lol no stopv

YES YES YES.
this is because the pharisees would go out into public, get on their knees, and pray where everyone could see them.

but jesus came and told people to do the opposite, because he wanted them to be humble.

 Make sure you maintain the proper
 conspiratorial tone
 We then have the child choose someone
 they know-a neighbor, usually. Ihe child'S
 mission is to secretly, deviously, find out
 something that the person needs, and
 then provide it, wrap it, deliver it-and
 never reveal to the target where it came
 from. Being a Santa isn't about getting
 credit, you see. It's unselfish giving

 My oldest chose the "witch lady" on the
 corner. She really Was horrible--had a
 fence around the house and would never
 let the kids go in and get a stray ball or
 Frisbee. Shed yell at them to play quieter,
 etc--a real pill. He noticed when we drove
 to school that she came out every
 morning to get her paper in bare feet, so
 he decided she needed slippers. So then
 he had to go spy and decide how big her
 feet were. He hid in the bushes one
 Saturday, and decided she was a
 medium. We went to Kmart and bought
 warm slippers. He wrapped them up, and
 tagged it "merry Christmas from Santa.
 After dinner one evening, he slipped down
 to her house, and slid the package under
 her driveway gate. The next morning, we
 watched her waddle out to get the paper,
 pick up the present, and go inside. My son
 was all excited, and couldn't wait to see
 what would happen next. The next
 morning, as we drove off, there she was,
 out getting her paper--wearing the
 slippers. He was ecstatic. I had to remind
 him that NO ONE could ever know what
 he did, or he wouldn't be a Santa

 Over the years, he chose a good number
 of targets, always coming up with a
 unique present just for them. One year, he
 polished up his bike, put a new seat on it,
 and gave it to one of our friend's
 daughters. These people were and are
 very poor. We did ask the dad if it was ok
 The look on her face, when she saw the
 bike on the patio with a big bow on it, was
 almost as good as the look on my son's
 face
 When it came time for Son #2 to join the
 ranks, my oldest came along, and helpeo
 with the induction speech. They are both
 excellent gifters, by the way, and never
 felt that they had been lied to-because
 they were let in on the Secret of Beinga
 Santa

Life, Memes, and Common: HOLD ON TO YOUR SALAH BECAUSE IF YOU LOSE THAT YOU LOSE EVERYTHING GARDENOFTHEPIOUS A common habit among many Muslims today is to abandon salah, especially the dawn and evening prayers. This poisonous habit of abandoning prayers, whether due to laziness or deliberate negligence, will cause many people to enter the hellfire on the Day of Judgement. - When a person starts neglecting the prayers, other negative effects follow, such as failing to perform good deeds and regularly falling into sinful acts. Such people deny the final day and continue with their defiance until death overtakes them, but by then it will be too late to repent and to be forgiven for their disobedience. - To neglect salah, is to be de-linked from Allah and deprived of His mercy, for it is a remedy for all the diseases of the heart and for what corrupts the soul. How can we hope to patiently fight against injustice and oppression, if we can barely stand up for any of our five prayers. It is no wonder then that the Ummah today lags behind in almost all areas of life, and is constantly humiliated. - “...and establish regular prayer, for prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds, and remembrance of Allah is the greatest thing in life without a doubt. And Allah knows the deeds you do.” (Quran, 29:45) - May Allah make the five daily prayers the coolness of our eyes and a source of salvation in the Hereafter, Ameen. - @gardenofthepious

Bad, Be Like, and Beautiful: HIDE YOUR GOOD DEEDS MORE THAN YOU HIDE YOUR BAD DEEDS GARDENOFTHEPIOUS It is a pity that many people today do favours of good deeds only to gain fame, fortune and praise from fellow human beings, (known in Arabic as Riya). Performing righteous deeds to show off or to be seen by fellow human beings in order to be praised by them destroys all the benefits that lie in such deeds. - The primary cause of Riya is a weak level of eeman (faith). When people’s faith is weak, they prefer the admiration and acceptance of people instead of the pleasure of Allah. They desire to be like others who they envy, and to be envied by others similarly. This causes them to ignore the blessings and rewards of the hereafter, and desire for fame and prestige in this world; thus fall into riya. Allah will humiliate all such people on the Day of Resurrection. - Jundub narrated that The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He who lets the people hear of his good deeds intentionally, to win their praise, Allah will let the people know his real intention (on the Day of Resurrection), and he who does good things in public to show off and win the praise of the people, Allah will disclose his real intention (and humiliate him). (Bukhari, 6499) - In the Quran, Allah says (translation of meaning): “Would one of you like to have a garden of palm trees and grapevines underneath which rivers flow in which he has from every fruit? But he is afflicted with old age and has weak offspring, and it is hit by a whirlwind containing fire and is burned. Thus does Allah make clear to you [His] verses that you might give thought.” (Quran, 2:266) - Here Allah has compared the good deeds of those who practice riya to a beautiful, lush garden that is burnt by a fire, while the owner stands by, incapable of stopping it. This is what happens to good deeds that are wasted. How can Allah, the Most Wise, accept deeds if they are not performed for His sake? How can Allah, the Most Just, bestow the same amount of blessings on the person who performs action solely for His sake and the one who intends only to show off and acquire the praise of fellow human beings? - May Allah save us all from the dangerous, poisonous habit of doing righteous deeds with the intention of seeking praise and fame. AMEEN.💖

Bad, Blessed, and Goals: Ramadan is leaving us. Have we soften our Hearts...!!! aislam4everyone Ramadan is leaving us… Have we soften our Hearts…!!! As the last days of Ramadan are with us now, many of us are still in shock at the speed with which Ramadan has passed. Our goals may not yet be realized, our habits may not yet have changed, and our hearts may not yet have felt the sweetness of this beloved month. Disheartened, many of us may have already given to despair, feeling that our Ramadans have not been as fruitful as we had wished and planned. To make things more uncomfortable, we sometimes pray in mosque where the Imam or those around us begin to cry, weeping loudly when they hear verses of the Qur’an or when the Imam makes the du`a’ (supplication) during witr. Everyone else seems to be touched by this blessed month; everyone else’s hearts seem to soak in sweetness of this faith, the tears soaking their cheeks as they beg for mercy, provision, and forgiveness. What about me? What about you? How can we, too, be of those whose hearts are softened? Make Du`a’ “If you have approached the end of Ramadan, and you do not yet feel it in your heart, keep knocking on the door of Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala (exalted is He). Keep knocking, keep knocking, and Allah will answer.” Ask Allah (swt) in all of the blessed times to make du`a’ to break the hardness of your heart and allow sincerity and gratitude to gush through. Ask Him to soften your heart, to fill it with an awe-inspiring realization of Him, to exchange your bad deeds for good deeds and let your heart tremble in awe of Him as your actions show love for Him. May Allah swt accept all our good and lawful wishes. Indeed He knows the secrets of Hearts and No One can Accept dua’s except Him. Ya Allah We Only beg from You. Please accept our humble duas. Aameen ya Rabb!!
