Do u think I am hot??? So is hell!!! Lower your gaze!!!!
“Hijaab” being a hot topic these days, media is trying its best to malign Islam by providing misinformation to the public regarding hijab by raising allegations like:Islam degrades women in the name of hijab, why in Islam only women should do Hijaab, etc.
It is a misconception that hijab is only made for females. But hijab is first an obligation for males and after that it is an obligation for females. Hijab does not merely means covering body with a black cloth (known as burqa.) It includes a complete behavior and attitude apart from dressing modest. In short, Hijaab is Mandatory for both males and as well as females.
Allah says in the Quran in Surah Noor (24):30, “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.” First Allah commands men to observe hijab and then in the next verse it is commanded for females.
It is also mentioned in a hadith where Jareeribn ‘Abdullaah said:”I asked the Messenger of Allaah (pbuh) about an accidental glance at a woman. He commanded me to turn my gaze away.” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, who said: This is a saheehhasanhadeeth. See al-Sunan, 2700).
The Messenger of Allaah (pbuh) also said: “O Ali, do not follow a glance with another, for you will be forgiven for the first, but not for the second.” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 2701; see Saheeh al-Jaami’, 7953)
My dear brothers, next time onwards when you see a girl (even) without Hijaab (might be a model; or actress in TV; or in magazine, ads, newspapers, posters etc.; or even your girlfriend without hijab before marriage!), before giving a comment “She is hot” or “you are looking HOT dear” Remember the commandment of Allah and punishment in the Aakhirah for disobeying your Lord!
Brothers also find it “cool” to shake hands with girls (including their cousin sisters, sister-in-law, friends, etc.) They find nothing wrong in ‘just’ shaking hands, might be here it is “okay” but what about the hereafter???
It was narrated that Ma’qilibnYassaar said: The Messenger of Allaah (pbuh) said: “For one of you to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle is better for him than that he should touch a woman who is not permissible for him.” Can you really bear this pain? Think practically… how much painful it is even if a small needle pricks in our finger. O’ Allah! What a torture and severe punishment it would be!!! Even my sisters don’t care and shake hands with non-mahram and didn’t even realize the punishment is same even for females, for Allah is just and wise.
Don’t be a fool thinking what you follow is cool!!! Be a muslim by your deeds by following the Quran and Authentic Hadith not just by name as it won’t help you to earn Jannah (if you are a muslim just by name!).
Hijab for men is obligatory (lowering gaze and guarding modesty) even if a female is not in hijab. The harder is the test, the greater will be the reward.And whoever disobeys Allah, will be punishable for their deeds.
Hijab generate respect for each other and help in creating peaceful society, which is the need of the hour.
Be a Muslim by choice not by chance!

Merit of Sharing Food
ALLAH SWT says:
“And they give food, in spite of their love for it (or for the love of Him), to the poor, the orphan, and the captive.” (76:8)
And eat of the things which ALLAH has provided for you, lawful and good, and fear ALLAH in Whom you believe. [Al-Maeda: 88]
1. Abu Hurairah (May ALLAH be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of ALLAH (PBUH) said, “The food of two persons suffices for three persons, and the food of three persons suffices for four persons.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
2. Jabir bin `Abdullah (May ALLAH be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of ALLAH (PBUH) said, “The food of one person suffices for two, the food of two persons suffices for four persons, and the food of four persons suffices for eight persons.” [Muslim].
Commentary: This Hadith indicates that if a few persons share the same dinner-table, a small quantity of food will be enough for many persons. Moreover, this increases mutual love and fellow-feeling.
3.Abu Hurairah (May ALLAH be pleased with him) reported: A man came to the Prophet (PBUH) and said; “I am hard pressed by hunger.” He (PBUH) sent a word to one of his wives who replied: “By Him Who has sent you with the Truth, I have nothing except water.” Then he sent the same message to another (wife) and received the same reply. He sent this message to all of them (i.e., his wives) and received the same reply. Then he (PBUH) said, “Who will entertain this (man) as guest?” One of the Ansar said: “O Messenger of ALLAH, I will.” So he took him home and said to his wife: “Serve the guest of Messenger of ALLAH (PBUH).”
Another narration is: The Ansari asked his wife: “Have you got anything?” She answered: “Nothing, except a little food for the children.” He said: “Keep them busy with something, and when they ask for food put them to sleep. When the guest enters, extinguish the light and give him the impression that we are also eating.” So they sat down and the guest ate and they passed the night hungry. When he came to the Prophet (PBUH) in the morning, he said to him, “ALLAH admired what you did with your guest last night.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: This Hadith describes a unique example of hospitality and kindness liked by Allah. It imparts to man the sense of self-sacrifice and a feeling of fellowship.
