I thought to Share My deepest thoughts with you all as a charity and a reminder To My Fellow Muslim’s In This Holy Month Of Mercy.
#Three crucial points we all should be extremely careful of nowadays are as follows:- I Intend to remind You All That, Saying “Rest In Peace” as a Prayer For the “Dead Muslim” Is NOT good enough because ain’t no prayer there in your utterance directed to our Creator nor is there any guarantee that the departed soul you referring to by saying to “rest in peace” will do so at all.
Therefore, I guess it is best to seek prayers and pray for the dead by begging Allah SWT to grant him or her His Love And Mercy – We Should Be Begging Allah SWT to grant the departed soul a place in Janna… etc…
Secondly, Referring to our creator as God is still not permissible because He is not God But Allah SWT. That is why in the first pillar of Islam, it is clearly stated that : “There is NO God but Allah (SWT) and That; Muhammad (SAW) is His Slave And Messenger. Nonetheless, I guess if One is to ever refer to Him, then best to say it in the following manner: “God- The-Almighty”/ “God-Almighty”.
Hence the word “God” can be pluralized by adding an (s) to it = God’s…Guess one can perfectly understand the reason why He (Allah SWT) is telling us to not refer to Him as ‘God’ But Allah SWT.
Adding the word ‘The Almighty’ is technically preferable based on that fact that it depicts His Greatness As “The Supreme Creator” Of All Things. Allah SWT is indeed The Almighty.
Finally, we can’t be referring to our Creator by starting to spell His Name With a small letter. My fellow believers, please remember to start with a CAPITAL LETTER whenever you want to refer to Allah SWT , The Most Merciful, God-The-Almighty…The Self-Sufficient Etc…
“Exalted Are All His (99 Names Of Allah SWT) Divine Attributes And That Of Our Noble Prophet Muhammad (SAW)…. Altogether Lovely. Peace Be Upon Him And his beloved Companion’s and their noble Families”.
Oh, Allah SWT! Do please accept our daily prayers, fasting and supplications in this Holy Month Of Ramadan/Rahma.
Oh, Allah SWT! Kindly bless us to be among those who will be attaining Your Divine Love And Mercy On The Night Of Laylatul Qadr / The Night Of Power.
Oh, Allah SWT! You are Forgiving And You Love Forgiveness, So You Too Forgive Me. Ameeeen
Oh, Allah SWT! You are Forgiving And You Love Forgiveness, So You Too Forgive us. Ameeeen
Oh, Allah! Do Please grant us all good both here and hereafter…..Ameeeen!!!
