Ya`qub ibn al-Sayyid `Ali al-Hanafi said: “[One visiting the graves] should read Surat Ya Seen or whatever is easy for him to recite from Qur’an. Know that Abu Hanifah, May Allah have mercy upon him, considered it blameworthy (makruh) to recite Qur’an at the cemetary, but not Muhammad, May Allah have mercy upon him.”

Qadi Khan al-Hanafi said in his Fatawa: “Whoever recites from the Qur’an over the graves: if he intends thereby that the familiarity of the sound of the Qur’an reach them, then let him recite. If he did not intend that, then Allah hears the Qur’an wherever you recite it.”

Allah SWT truly is Merciful. And He has the Power to convey the rewards. May those who have preceded us rest in peace. Ameen.



Allah (SWT) says:

“I have divided prayer between Myself and My servant into two halves, and My servant shall have what he has asked for.

When the servant says, Alhamdu lilahi Rabbi Al’aalameen
{All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of existence},
Allah says, ‘My servant has praised Me.’

When he says, Ar-Rahmaani Arraheem
{the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful},
Allah says, ‘My servant has extolled Me.’

When he says, Maaliki Yawmi Addeen
{The Owner (Master) of the Day of Judgment},
Allah says, ‘My servant has glorified Me.’

When he says, Iyyaka na’abudu wa iyyaka nasta’een
{You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything)},
Allah says, ‘This is between Me and My servant, and My servant shall have what he has asked for.’

When he says, Ihdina Sirata Almustaqeem, Sirata Alladeena An’amta ‘Alaihim Ghairi Almahgdoobi ‘Alaihim wala Ddaaleen
{Guide us to the Straight Path, the Path of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not the path of those who have incurred Your Anger, nor of those who have gone astray.},
Allah says, ‘This is for My servant, and My servant shall have what he has asked for.’”


Allah (SWT)’s love is abundant in the words we are taught from a child, yet we are unaware. Stop being ungrateful and open up your heart to the beautiful words.

You Say


I have butterflies in my tummy. I want to say a million things, but my brain is telling me to shut up, so I do. I have a sinking heart, even faster than the titanic and its ridiculous love story.

Everything good I have done unconsciously with you in my mind. I smile in the street when I’m walking – rain or shine, because you are on my mind. The decision to be home is for more time with you, the rest is just a bonus.

And you have said NO. As each day goes by I accept your decision, and then go back two steps. So, I deny myself from actually voicing out what I feel, because it will make it true, then I won’t be able to go back.

I don’t want anyone else. Sadly, no one in my mind will ever measure up to you. This is going to be a mistake, but one I have to admit.

You are all things wrong, yet perfectly right. Wish it would all fall into place like all things meant to be. It’s frustrating to pretend that it’s fine and that I will be okay, like you mean absolutely nothing.

But thank you, for all the good that you have brought to my life. I cherish the moments of tenderness – even as friends. And the nonstop chattering to lighten the silence.

I watch all those lectures about the Islamic way of life and relationships between siblings, family, friends and in marriage, they sound so happy, so peaceful. Then what am I doing with myself? Playing with fire inside my soul.

Time flies. The pain will heal. The tears will stop.


This is my year with you here and me here. And while we are commuting in the opposite direction, the borders of this land are not enough for the prayers I pray for you. Neither is the strongest sandstorm.

I hope Allah SWT will have mercy on me, and by next year I will never see you for a long time. It’s wrong for me, and unfair to you. I never want to tell you those words unless you ask me to.

Emotionally running is tiring. I need to catch my breath. I want to withdraw from this world and build mine alone, far away from you.

Soon… I will fade into darkness.
