seek refuge from the evil of our selves and the evil of our bad deeds. Indeed whosoever is guided by Allah is the guided one, and whosever is misguided by Allah is the misguided one. I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone, who has no partners and I bear witness that Mohammed ppbu is the messenger of Allah peace and blessing on Him.  


Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar,  Allah Akbar

In surat Al Nisa, 133

Verily, We have directed, The people of the book, before you, and you ( O’ Muslims). To fear Allah. But if you Deny Him, To Allah belong all things, In the heavens and on earth And Allah is free of all wants, worthy Of all praise.      

 Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar


O’ Muslim you came together united to celebrate the Eid and congratulate each other in this happy Days. Muslims should thank Allah for this blessed day of Eid.    


The main purpose of these happy days to unite the Muslims and to encourage them to love each other and cooperate between them. Without getting together our live will not prosper and our believe will not increase.


In Surat Ali Imran 102,

O’ you who believe Fear AllH as He should be feared, and die not except in state of Islam

And hold fast all together by the Rope which Allah stretches out for you and be not divided among yourselves.


In Surat Al Anam 153

Verily this is my Way leading Straight follow it : Follow not other paths; They will scatter you about, From His great path; Thus doth He command you that you may be righteous.


In Surat Al Maidah 2,

Help you one another in righteousness and piety, But help not one another in sin and rancou; Fear Allah for Allah is strict in Punishment


In Surat Al Hujurat 12

The believers are brother to each other


The messenger of Allah (    ) said the believers like one body if any part of the body suffer the rest of the body will suffer with fever and sleepiness.


The messenger of Allah (    ) warn us from the division and always emphasis about the Muslim unity and to reject the division among the Muslims


In another Hadieth of the Messenger of Allah (    ) Do not fight among you this will lead to the filer.


In Surat Ali Amran 105

Be not like those who are divided among themselves, And fall into disputations after receiving Clear sign: for them is a dreadful penalty.


In another Hadieth of the messenger (     ) said be straight during the prayer and do not be divided as your hearts will be divided.


Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar


O’ Muslims you should be united and reject the division among you all the time and especially in this time, which the Muslims going through difficult time. Muslims looking for success and looking for victory, they should be united and the result come from Allah (     )     


Muslims should put their hand with Jamaah            as one hand without separating from each other without rift. United Muslims with give Islam strength and prosperity Insh-Allah.


O’ Muslims be aware of the shatan            as always like to wispier in ear of son Adam. The Shatan        is never and will never been worshiped in Arabian peninsula, because Allah want the Islam to be worshiped their. But still the Shatan      will never give up tempting Muslims everywhere to listen to his evil.  The Shatan will enter to with different ways different objectives. Try hard not follow his path, if we follow his path will be loser.


If Muslims thing that our success in this life and in next is not to follow the path of the enemies, as all the enemies of Islam are standing and waiting to distort anything about Islam.


From the Hadieth of the Prophet Mohamed (     ) said O’ Muslim stand firm with Jamaah and do not divided, the Shatan will be always with one person. If you looking for the Paradise be with Jamaah, narrated by Al Trmithi and correct by the Al Bani.
