  9. 9. 9 Allah the Almighty said: "Say, 'He is Allah [Who is] One. Allah, the Eternal Refuge. He neither begets nor is He begotten, nor is there anyone equivalent to Him.'" [Qur'an 112:1-4] 1. A: Allah The One And Only God Allah: The One and Only God of all - Allah is the One who created us. He's the King of all 'kings'; obey His Call. To worship none but Allah 'tis a must. We know Allah through everything He made. We recognize Allah through His great signs: The universe, skies, sun, moon, night and day, Animals, people, movement, food and time. Allah owns everything and everyone. Allah made us to worship none but Him. Our main goal in life is not games nor fun. We're Allah's servants, made to be Muslims. There's no true god except Allah Alone. Worship Him only, so Heaven's your Home. ~Mariam Mababaya
  10. 10. 10 Allah the Almighty said: "Allah - There is no god except for Him, the Ever-Living One, the Sustainer of all existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what will be after them, and they do not encompass anything of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He Allah is the Most High, the Most Great." [Qur'an 2:255] 2. B: Bismillah In The Name Of Allah 'Bismillah' - An amazing phrase to say. 'In the Name of Allah' before blest acts. 'Bismillah' - Sincerely each night and day. True Muslims remember Allah a lot. Say 'Bismillah' before you eat and drink, Say 'Bismillah' before you go to bed, Before entering a room or leaving. Say 'Bismillah' so your deeds will be blessed. In the Name of Allah the Almighty, We start most of our deeds with 'Bismillah': 'Bismillah' to receive Allah's Mercy, To be close to Him and RasulAllah (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam). 'Bismillah' - Great words said by Allah's friends, Who long to be near Allah in Heaven. ~Mariam Mababaya
  11. 11. 11 Allah the Almighty said: "O' mankind, remember the favor of Allah upon you. Is there any creator besides Allah who provides for you from the heavens and earth? There is no god worthy of worship except Him, so how then are you deluded?" [Qur'an 35:3] 3. C: Allah The Creator [Al-Khaliq] Allah Al-Khaliq created everything. Allah made the universe and each atom. Allah Al-Khaliq made us to worship Him. He created all with mercy and wisdom. Allah Al-Khaliq can create what He Wills. So you know Him, He made all things in nature. For Him to create, He says 'Be' and it is. Allah is Al-Khaliq, the True Creator. Allah fashioned His servants in many forms. Allah is the Designer; with art He makes. He made all things we know and those not yet known. So perfectly Allah Al-Khaliq creates. Allah is Al-Khaliq. He made everything. No one is worthy of worship except Him. ~Mariam Mababaya
  12. 12. 12 Ibn 'Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated: The Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam used to supplicate to Allah at the time of distress saying, “Laa ilaaha illaallaahu Al-'Atheem Al-Haleem, Laa ilaaaha illaallaahu Rabbul 'arshul 'Atheem, Laa ilaaha illaallaahu Rabbus-samaawaati wa Rabbul-ardhi wa Rabbul 'arshul Kareem.” (Meaning: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Majestic, the Most Forbearing. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Rabb of the Tremendous Throne. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Rabb of the heavens and the Rabb of the earth, and the Rabb of the Honorable Throne.) [Sahih Bukhari Hadith 2079] 4. D: Dear Allah Dear Allah, 'tis the month of Muharram, Please forgive me. Please pardon all my sins. Dear Allah, please erase all sins I've done, Through good deeds I do and my believing. Dear Allah, please reunite me with them - My dear parents who died in the same year. Please forgive them and join us in Heaven, By Your Mercy - Through our du'as and tears. The oppressed' prayers are answered - please show - All will be rewarded on Judgment Day. Dear Allah, Your Mercy on us bestow, Guide us in each moment and what we say. Dear Allah, while smiling let us see You, And make our dream of meeting You come true. (Ameen.) ~Mariam Mababaya
  13. 13. 13 Allah the Almighty said: "He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Perfection, the Bestower of Faith, the Overseer, the Exalted in Might, the Compeller, the Superior. Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with Him. He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner, to Him belong the best names. Whatever is in the heavens and earth exalts Him. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise." [Qur'an 59:23-24] 5. E: Allah the Exalted (Al-'Aleyy Al-'Atheem) There's excellence in Allah's creation. All things He designed in due proportion. See the sun, moon, stars, blue seas and oceans, The wind, mighty mountains, green plantations, Diversity in people's looks and speech, The signs Allah showed them so they believe, Their various skills and personalities, And in how we're all equal yet unique. There's excellence in all that Allah made - Excellence in nature He did create, As in the rotation of night and day, And in His Angels who list what we say. Allah is the Perfect, the Exalted. There's wisdom in all that He created. ~Mariam Mababaya
  14. 14. 14 Allah the Almighty said: "He (Allah) is the First and the Last, the Ascendant and the Intimate, and He is of all things All-Knowing. It is He who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He knows what goes into the earth and what emerges from it and what descends from the heavens and what ascends therein, and He is with you wherever you are. And Allah of what you do is All-Seeing." [Qur'an 57:3-4] 6. F: Allah is the First (Al-Awwal) Allah is the First and Only True God. Before Allah there is no deity. So-called 'gods' besides Him are false and fraud. Allah is the First, the One God Only. Allah is the Only God, Al-Awwal. He is Al-Aakhir, no god after Him. Our God Allah is the Most Merciful, King of all 'kings', Master of everything. Before any deed, think first of Allah. Ask yourself, 'For this will Allah love me? Will this act be loved by RasulAllah (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam)? Or will it cause Allah to be displeased?' Before all things, remember Al-Awwal, Allah - The First, the Only God of all. ~Mariam Mababaya

A'udhu Bika min sharri maa ssana't, aboo-u Laka bi-ni'matika 'alayy, wa aboo-u bidhanbi, faghfirlee fa Innahu laa yaghfir adh-dhunooba illaa Anta.' (Meaning: O' Allah, You are my Rabb! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You Allah created me and I am Your servant, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise to You as much as I can, I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You Allah all the blessings which You have bestowed on me, and I confess to You all my sins, so I beseech You to forgive my sins, for no one can forgive sins except You.) The Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam added, "If anybody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the inhabitants of Paradise; and if anybody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the inhabitants of Paradise." [Sahih Bukhari Hadith 2070] 24. X: 'X' On All That Allah Dislikes 'X' on all that Allah hates and dislikes. 'X' on all the mistakes I used to do. My ex-friend is each sin and outright lie, And obstacles which bar men from the truth. 'X' on bad habits which God Allah hates. 'X' on my faults which do not define me. The ex-friends I've left behind are but fakes, Who chose the paths to immorality. For Allah's sake, I've moved away from sin - From committing wrongs intentionally, From being unwise in my choice of friends, And speaking much unnecessarily. Dear Allah, please accept my repentance, And join me with Your friends most excellent. (Ameen.) ~Mariam Mababaya
  33. 33. 33 Allah the Almighty said: "The Messenger (Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) has believed in what was revealed unto him from his Rabb, and so have the believers. All of them have likewise believed in Allah and His Angels, and His books, and His Messengers, saying, 'We make no distinction between any of His Messengers.' And they say, 'We hear, and we obey. We seek Your forgiveness, o' our Rabb, and to You Allah is the final destination.'" [Qur'an 2:285] 25. Y: Yes, Allah, The Almighty Yes, Allah, once I hear you, I obey. As I hear Your Name called, I go and pray, Wake up even at night to supplicate - Sincerely I long to see Your Grand Face.

Yes, Allah, just You own the Greatest Names. Just Allah knows all that I do and say. ~Mariam Mababaya
  34. 34. 34 Allah the Almighty said: "Know that the life of this temporal world is but amusement, and diversion, and adornment, and boasting to one another, and competition in increase of wealth and progeny - like the example of rainfall whose plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries, and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes scattered debris. And in the Hereafter is severe penalty and forgiveness from Allah Almighty, and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion." [Qur'an 57:20] 26. Z: Zuhd For Allah's Sake I may not own that many pairs of shoes, Or keep a huge collection of clothing, Or each day get to taste some fancy food, Or every year find myself traveling. I'm one of Allah's servants, which is true - To live so humbly is most befitting, While taking care of what I say and do, And in God Allah I stay believing. Zuhd is knowing our days on earth are few, As wise travelers busy journeying - Being pleased with good things Allah gave you, Praying for Allah's Eternal Heaven. Dear Allah, for my trust and faith in You, Make my wish of seeing Your Smile come true. (Ameen.) ~Mariam Mababaya
  35. 35. 35 Ibn 'Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated: Allah's Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, "Islam is based on the following five principles: To testify that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam is the final Messenger of Allah, to establish the obligatory prayers dutifully, to pay the compulsory Zakah/charity, to perform Hajj/pilgrimage to Makkah, and to observe the mandatory fasting in the noble month of Ramadan." [Sahih Bukhari Hadith 8] 27. The Five Pillars Of Islam Five pillars of Islam all Muslims know - To be a true Muslim, fulfill all five. If one is unable to do Hajj, though, Keep asking Allah for it day and night. First pillar is Shahaada: To witness That there's no true god but One God Allah, And Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) is last of God's Prophets. Second pillar is to perform Salah. Third pillar: Zakah - Giving charity. Fourth pillar: Sawm - Fasting in Ramadan. Fifth pillar: Hajj, if one has the money. Fulfill Allah's Rights, as much as you can. Five pillars of Islam - We do them all, As true Muslims, to answer Allah's Call. ~Mariam Mababaya
  36. 36. 36 Allah the Almighty said: "Allah witnesses that there is no true god worthy of worship except Him, and so do the Angels and those who have knowledge - that He Allah is maintaining creation in justice. There is no god worthy of worship but Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise. Verily, the true religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in Allah's Verses then indeed Allah is Swift in account." [Qur'an 3:18-19] 28. The First Pillar Of Islam: Shahaada The first pillar of Islam: Shahaada - To believe in Only One God Allah, And that Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) is His Last Prophet. The Shahaada - Love, witness and accept. Know that Allah made us to worship Him, The True King and Master of everything. He sent Prophets and Messengers so they Call everyone to the Truth and Right Way. The Right Way: To worship none but One God - To worship Allah without fault nor fraud, While readily obeying His Orders And following His noble Messenger (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam). I witness I worship none but Allah, And know Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) is RasulAllah. ~Mariam Mababaya
  37. 37. 37 Allah the Almighty said: "So exalt Allah with praise of your Rabb and be of those who bow down to Him in worship. And worship your Rabb Allah until there comes to you the certainty (The return to Allah Almighty)." [Qur'an 15:98-99] 29. The Second Pillar Of Islam: Salah/Prayer Salah - The second pillar of Islam. Allah made all to worship none but Him. Allah - The God of every jinn and man, The One and Only God of everything. For His sake, pray five prayers day and night. Before each prayer, perform ablution. To issue commands Allah has the right. Salah - Great way of purification. Pray Fajr, Dhuhr, 'Asar, Maghreb, and 'Ishaa. Pray with humbleness and sincerity. To earn more rewards, add Sunnah Rak'ahs. Gains from praying: Faith, skills and unity. Pray without asking God why we should pray - We're here to worship Allah, not for play. ~Mariam Mababaya
  38. 38. 38 Allah the Almighty said: "Righteousness is not that you turn your faces towards the east or the west, but true righteousness is in one who believes in Allah, the Last Day (Judgement Day), the Angels, the Book, and the Prophets, and gives wealth in spite of his love for it to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask for help, and for freeing those in captivity, and who establishes prayer and gives charity/Zakah, those who fulfill their promise when they make a promise, and those who are patient during difficult times and in hardship. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are truly the righteous." [Qur'an 2:177] 30. The Third Pillar Of Islam: Zakah/Charity Islam's third pillar: Zakah/charity. Muslims whom Allah gave wealth must do this, Donate food or money to the needy - For Allah's sake, and so their wealth is blest. In Ramadan, there's a special Zakah - Zakatul Fitir - Paid to compensate For wrongs they may have done - Known by Allah. Zakah removes sins and increases faith. Zakah extinguishes Allah's Anger, Proves you're a good servant - A grateful one, Makes you among Allah's friends - A winner, And it erases sins you may have done. Do Zakah, if you're able to do so. Do what you can, for Allah always knows. ~Mariam Mababaya
  39. 39. 39 Allah the Almighty said: "O' you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed on those before you, so that you may become righteous. (Fasting for) A specified number of days. So whoever among you is unwell or on a journey - then fast an equal number of days (To make up for the missed fasts). And on those who are able (To fast but with some difficulty) - a ransom (As substitute) of feeding a needy person each day. And whoever volunteers good (Or does more) then it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if only you knew. The noble month of Ramadan is that in which was revealed the Glorious Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights the month, let him fast it, and whoever is unwell or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah wants for you ease and does not intend for you hardship, and wants you to complete the period, and to glorify Allah for that which He has guided you, and perhaps you will be grateful." [Qur'an 2:183-185] 31. The Fourth Pillar Of Islam: Sawm/Fasting The fourth pillar of Islam: Sawm/Fasting - Avoiding food and drink during the day. In Ramadan, while firmly believing God has the right to prevent what He gave. Allah, our God, can command what He Wills. True Muslims hear His Orders and obey. Fasting helps one feel how the hungry feel, And promotes gratitude each night and day. Fasting strengthens patience and faith/Iman, And in a way helps one control desires. The fourth pillar: Fasting in Ramadan, A special month for Allah's close allies. Fast in Ramadan and on other days, To be with those who see Allah's Grand Face. ~Mariam Mababaya
  40. 40. 40 Allah the Almighty said: "Say, 'Allah has told the truth. So follow the religion of Prophet Abraham (May Peace be upon him), inclining towards Truth; and verily he was not of the polytheists.' Indeed, the first House of Worship established for mankind was that at Bakkah (Makkah) - blessed, and a guidance for the worlds. In it are clear signs such as the standing place of Prophet Abraham (May Peace be upon him). And whoever enters it shall be safe. And due to Allah from the people is a pilgrimage to the House - for whoever is able to find thereto a way. But whoever disbelieves - then verily, Allah is free from need of the worlds." [Qur'an 3:95-97] 32. The Fifth Pillar Of Islam: Hajj/Pilgrimage To Makkah Hajj/Pilgrimage - Fifth pillar of Islam - Hajj in the Holy City of Makkah. The method of Hajj one must understand. Spending one's wealth for the sake of Allah, Perform Hajj for Allah's sake at least once. Perform Hajj so your sins are forgiven. Perform Hajj, and pray for your needs and wants. May Allah make us near Him in Heaven. (Ameen.) Hajj is a journey to Allah for Him - While following His Messenger's Sunnah. Hajj - A good deed that frees you from your sins. Hajj is a blissful journey to Allah. Perform Hajj if you have the wealth and means. To do Hajj, at least once, true Muslims dream. ~Mariam Mababaya
  41. 41. 41 Allah the Almighty said: "Indeed, those who believed, and those who were Jews or Christians, or Sabians (who came before the time of the Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam), those among them who sincerely believed in Allah and the Last Day, and did righteousness - will have their reward with their Rabb, and no fear will there be regarding them, nor will they grieve." [Qur'an 2:62] 33. The Six Pillars Of Faith/Iman Six pillars of Faith Muslims believe in: Belief in Allah and all His Great Names. Belief in His Angels - From the unseen. Belief in Allah's Books - In what He says. Belief in His Prophets and Messengers. Belief in the coming of Judgement Day. Belief in Allah's Destiny - Al-Qadr. Those are the six pillars of Iman/Faith. Iman/Faith is to sincerely believe - Believe with one's heart, prove with one's actions. Iman increases by doing good deeds, And it decreases through one's wrongdoings. May Allah love us for our Iman/Faith. May Allah keep us steadfast on His Way. (Ameen.) ~Mariam Mababaya

Allah's Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam replied, 'Faith is to believe in Allah, His Angels, the meeting with Him, His Messengers, and to believe in the Day of Resurrection.' Then the man asked, 'What is Islam?' Allah's Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, 'To worship Allah Alone and none else, to perform the obligatory prayers dutifully, to pay the compulsory charity/Zakah, and to observe the obligatory fasting during the month of Ramadan.' Then the man further asked, 'What is Ihsan/perfection?' Allah's Messenger SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam replied, 'Ihsan is to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion, then you must at least believe that Allah is always watching you.' Then the man asked, 'When will the Hour/Judgment Day be established?' Allah's Messenger SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam replied, 'The one being asked about it has no better knowledge than the questioner, but I will inform you about its signs: When a female servant gives birth to her master, and when the shepherds of black camels start competing with others in the construction of high buildings. And the Hour/Judgment Day is one of the five things which nobody knows except Allah Almighty.' The Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam then recited, "Verily, Allah! With Him Alone is the knowledge of the Hour/Judgment Day." [Qur'an 31:34] Afterwards the man left and the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam asked his companions to call him back, but they could not see anything of him. Then the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam stated, 'That was the Angel Jibreel (May Peace be with him) who came to teach the people their religion (Islam)'. [Sahih Bukhari Hadith 47] 34. 1st Pillar Of Iman: Belief In Allah The Almighty We believe and know that Allah is One. We trust and testify that He is God, The Owner and King of every kingdom, Who rewards His slaves for their truth or fraud. As Muslims, we believe in Allah's Names. Allah: The Almighty, Most Merciful, The All-Seeing Who sees all - night and day, The All-Knowing Who knows how His slaves feel. We believe in all of Allah's Commands, And behind His doings there's great wisdom. All our wants and needs Allah understands. To have Faith in God is our decision. May Allah love us for our Faith in Him, And welcome us in His Lofty Gardens. (Ameen.) ~Mariam Mababaya
  43. 43. 43 Allah the Almighty said: "All Praise is due to Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, Who made the angels messengers having wings, two or three or four.

[Qur'an 35:1] 35. 2nd Pillar Of Iman: Belief In Allah's Angels We believe that God Allah has Angels - Army of servants who always obey. Of light they are beautiful creations. Each group of angels has a role to play. We believe some Angels pray for God's friends, Praying that believers are forgiven. Then there are Angels who help rain descend, And more who worship Allah in Heaven. There are Angels who watch and list our deeds, And special ones who guide, warn or advise. There's the one who'll signal when earth must leave, Angels of mercy, and that of demise. May we meet Allah's Angels of Mercy, For our belief in the One and Only. (Ameen.) ~Mariam Mababaya

Indeed we were even before it Muslims (Submitting to Allah Almighty).'" [Qur'an 28:51-53] 36. 3rd Pillar Of Iman: Belief In Allah's Books We believe in Allah's Books He revealed To His Messengers - His Divine Message. Though the previous books were changed or concealed, The Qur'an remains complete and perfect. Some of Allah's Great Books we know include: The Suhuf or Scrolls sent to Ibrahim, Torah to Moses, Zaboor to Dawood, Injeel to 'Isa, Qur'an Al-Kareem - The Qur'an: Sent to Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam), The only Book protected from men's lies.

  45. 45. 45 Allah the Almighty said: "Mankind was of one religion (Before their deviation); then Allah sent the prophets as bringers of good tidings, and warners, and sent down with them the Scripture in truth to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed. And none differed over it (The Scripture) except those who were given it - after the clear proofs came to them - out of jealous animosity among themselves. And Allah guided those who believed to the truth concerning that over which they had differed, by His permission. And Allah guides whom He Wills to a Straight Path." [Qur'an 2:213] 37. 4th Pillar Of Iman: Belief In Allah's Messengers We believe Allah assigned special men To be His noble Prophets/Messengers. To guide all to the Truth is their mission. To belief in One God they are callers. To various places on earth they were sent - With the same goal - To guide all to God's Way. Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) - The last to descend As leader of Prophets we must obey. Many Messengers whom Allah inspired, Many Prophets whose names only God knows, Great lessons can be derived from their lives - Lives of noble men who warned against wrongs. May Allah join us with His faithful friends, His Prophets and Messengers, in Heaven. (Ameen.) ~Mariam Mababaya

Allah: The Only Judge on Judgement Day, The King of all 'kings', the Master of all, Who will judge each one's acts, beliefs and ways. And reward His slaves who answered His Call. On Judgement Day, true Muslims will succeed, By Allah's Mercy, for good deeds they did, For their sincere efforts and right belief, And their cautiousness of all that they said. May Allah make us prosper on that Day, And join us with Allah's friends by His Grace. (Ameen.) ~Mariam Mababaya

And Allah does not love that person who is self-deluded and boastful." [Qur'an 57:22-23] 39. 6th Pillar Of Iman: Belief In Allah's Divine Destiny Qadr We believe in Qadr - God's Divine Decree, That Allah has Power over all things, Just Allah knows what's best for you and me, And Allah has knowledge of everything.

Nothing takes place but with His permission, Nothing can ever be hidden from him, He is aware of all situations - Allah Al-'Aleem knows about all things.

And it is so I may complete My Favor upon you and that you may be guided. Just as We have sent among you a messenger from yourselves reciting to you Our verses and purifying you, and teaching you the Book and wisdom, and teaching you that which you did not know. So remember Me (Allah), I will remember you, and be grateful to Me and do not deny Me." [Qur'an 2:150-152] 40.
