'US-based media agency the New York Post is deliberately spreading lies stating that Hamas is killing children, while it can be seen that it is Israel committing the crime.\
They deliberately inverted the information. Its actually 20 civilians including 9 children killed by Israeli forces in the Gaza strip. It makes it easier to confuse people.

Edit: They deleted it.

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn



By Yūsuf Badāt
Istighfār means to seek forgiveness with God from negligence and disobedience, by the means of both the tongue and the heart.
1. Compliance to and Fulfillment of God’s Command
وَاسْتَغْفِرُواْ اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
“Seek forgiveness with God! Certainly, God is Ever Forgiving [and] Merciful.”
(Qurʾān: 73:20)
2. Protection from Godly Punishments
وَما كانَ اللَّهُ مُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَهُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ
“God will not punish them while they seek [God’s] forgiveness.” –
(Qurʾān: 8:33)
3. God’s Bounties and Mercy
اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا يُرْسِلِ السَّمَاء عَلَيْكُم مِّدْرَارًا وَيُمْدِدْكُمْ بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجْعَللَّكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ وَيَجْعَل لَّكُمْ أَنْهَارًا
“Ask forgiveness from your Lord; Verily, He is Ever-Forgiving. He will send rain to you in abundance, increase you in wealth, children, orchards and rivers.”
(Qurʾān: 71:10-12)
لَوْلا تَسْتَغْفِرُونَ اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
“Why do you not seek forgiveness with God, so that you may receive [His] mercy?”
(Qurʾān: 27:46)
4. Relief from Worry and Stress
مَنْ لَزِمَ الِاسْتِغْفَارَ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ مِنْ كُلِّ ضِيقٍ مَخْرَجًا وَمِنْ كُلِّ هَمٍّ فَرَجًا وَرَزَقَهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ
“If anyone continually asks pardon, God will appoint for them a way out of every distress, a relief from every anxiety, and will provide for them from where they cannot imagine.”
(Sunan Abī Dāwūd, Ibn Mājah)
5. Expansion in Provisions
وَأَنِ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ ثُمَّ تُوبُوا إِلَيْهِ يُمَتِّعْكُمْ مَتَاعاً حَسَناً إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمّىً
“Seek the forgiveness of your Lord, and turn to Him in repentance, that He may grant you good enjoyment [of provisions].”
(Qurʾān: 11:3)
6. Likeness to Prophets and the Pious
قَالاَ رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
“Adam and Eve supplicated, “Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You do not forgive us or bestow Your Mercy upon us, we shall certainly be of the losers.”
(Qurʾān: 7:23)
إِنَّهُ لَيُغَانُ عَلَى قَلْبِي وَإِنِّي لأَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ فِي الْيَوْمِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ
Muḥammad (peace and blessings upon him) said, “There is [at times] some sort of shade upon my heart, and I seek forgiveness with God [at least] a hundred times a day.”
(Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim)
7. Forgiveness and Pardon
وَمَن يَعْمَلْ سُوءًا أَوْ يَظْلِمْ نَفْسَهُ ثُمَّ يَسْتَغْفِرِ اللَّهَ يَجِدِ اللَّهَ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا
“Whoever does evil or wrongs themselves but afterwards [sincerely] seeks God’s Forgiveness, they will find God Very Forgiving [and] Most Merciful.”
(Qurʾān: 4:110)
8. Entitlement to God’s Applaud and Glad-Tidings
طُوبَى لِمَنْ وَجَدَ فِي صَحِيفَتِهِ اسْتِغْفَارًا كَثِيرًا
“Glad tidings to those who have excessive ‘seeking forgiveness’ in the record of their deeds.”
(Ibn Mājah)
9. Entry into Paradise
وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا فَعَلُواْ فَاحِشَةً أَوْ ظَلَمُواْ أَنْفُسَهُمْ ذَكَرُواْ اللَّهَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُواْ لِذُنُوبِهِمْ وَمَن يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَلَمْ يُصِرُّواْ عَلَى مَا فَعَلُواْوَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ أُوْلَئِكَ جَزَآؤُهُم مَّغْفِرَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ وَجَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا وَنِعْمَ أَجْرُ الْعَامِلِينَ
“Those who have committed indecent actions or wronged themselves with evil, [thereafter] remember God and ask forgiveness for their sins; – and none can forgive sins but God – and do not knowingly persist in what [wrong] they have done. For such persons, the reward is forgiveness from their Lord, and gardens with rivers flowing underneath [in Paradise], wherein they shall reside forever. How excellent is this reward for the doers [of righteous deeds].”
(Qurʾān 3:136)

May the Creator of the heavens and earth make us of His awliyah. Ameen!
https://musliminc.com/13-signs-of-a-wali-friend-of-allah-4538

13 Signs of a Wali (Friend of Allah)

The plural of ‘Wali’ is ‘Awliya’. It is an Arabic word meaning friend. Awliya Allah, therefore, means Friends of Allah almighty. To become a friend to Allah isn’t something you just do. Allah honours certain people; some from birth and others due to their deeds. Here are some characteristics of the Awliya.
#1. They love Allah
Every person obviously wants the love of Allah, or should I say needs the love of Allah. But how many of us are willing to love Allah back? The Awliya are people who actually love Allah. Not because HE can punish them or because HE is more powerful than them. They just love him for being Allah. They always want HIM to be pleased with them. The Quran says: “And those who believe are overflowing in their love for Allah” (2:165)
#2. They remind you of Allah
The Hadith reports that that when the Prophet (pbuh) was asked about the characteristics of the Awliya, he declared, “Allah is remembered when they are seen.” (Nawawi and Ibn Majah). In order words, their presence alone can make you increase in faith.
#3. They do not grief or fear
The holy Quran says: “No doubt! Verily, the Awliya’ of Allah [i.e. those who believe in the Oneness of Allah and fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which he has forbidden), and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)], no fear shall come upon them nor shall they grieve, Those who believed (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism), and used to fear Allah much (by abstaining from evil deeds and sins and by doing righteous deeds). For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present world (i.e. righteous dream seen by the person himself or shown to others), and in the Hereafter. No change can there be in the Words of Allah, this is indeed the supreme success.” (Yunus 10:62-64)
#4. They feel fear when they hear the verses of Allah
Allah (SWT) said in the Quran Surah Al Anfal verse 2 to 4: “The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur’an) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone); Who perform As-Salat (prayer) and spend out of that We have provided them. It is they who are the believers in truth. For them are grades of dignity with their Lord, and Forgiveness and a generous provision (Paradise).”
#5. They constantly make Tawbah
The friends of Allah constantly repent for their sins. They do not underestimate any sin no matter how little it may seem, and they fear deeply when they feel they have done wrong.
#6. They remember Allah much
The friends of Allah ponder much and are very conscious of their creator. The holy Quran says: “Those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism), and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” Their hearts are attached to Allah.
#7. They do not talk much
We are accounted for every word we utter. That is why the people who are very close to Allah do not engage in talkativeness. They only talk when necessary and they speak truth. In their silence, they are remembering Allah.
#8. They do not eat much
For a person who constantly remembers Allah, death, day of resurrection, heaven and hell, food is the least of his priorities. That is because they are too afraid of their creator to have appetite, and too eager for their meeting with HIM (swt) and paradise.
#9. They love for the sake of Allah
The friends of Allah only love that which Allah loves and hate what Allah hates. Their friends are those who are pious and also fear Allah. They do not keep bad company at all. In fact, it is better for them to be alone than to keep a company that is not for Allah’s sake.
#10. They are charitable
The friends of Allah are very generous. They give and keep little for themselves but they are not extravagant.
#11. They have taqwa (piety)
The holy Quran says: “Those who have accepted faith and practice piety”. (Surah Yunus 10:63). Taqwa has many meanings; faith, consciousness of Allah. The friends of Allah are constantly thinking about the hereafter. They constantly think about death, and heaven and hell.
#12. They perform supererogatory acts of worship
The Awliya do not just perform the obligatory prayer, they go an extra mile. They feel excited to carry out good deeds because they enjoy pleasing Allah. In fact, the Awliya are well known for fasting and spending the night worshipping Allah. According to the hadith, Allah says, “My slave keeps drawing nearer to Me by means of supererogatory (nawafil) acts of worship until I love Him.”
#13. They are humble
A wali of Allah may not even know he is a Wali of Allah. He may look very poor or shabby. He wants neither praise nor flattery and he never shows off.
Although the description of the awliya is like the description of believers in general, it is important to understand that the awliya are steadfast and devoted completely to Allah. They give everything to Allah, and have absolutely no attachment or love for the worldly things. They are very eager for the meeting with Allah because of the immense love they have for HIM.
The reward for the friends of Allah Is mentioned in the holy Quran: “Verily those who say: “Our Lord is Allah,” and they remain steadfast, on them the angels will descend (at death) saying: “Fear not nor grieve! But receive the glad tidings of Paradise, which you have been promised! We have been your friends in the life of this world and are so in the hereafter. Therein you shall have (all) that your inner selves desire, and therein shall you have all that you ask for” (41:30-31)
We ask Allah to grant us death as Muslims and resurrect us with the believe

May Allah makes us of those who race towards goodness! Ameen!
أُولَٰئِكَ يُسَارِعُونَ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ وَهُمْ لَهَا سَابِقُونَ
Ulā’ika yusāri‘ūna fil-khyrāti wahum lahā sābiqūn
It is they who hasten to every good work and these who are foremost in them.
(Sūratul Mu’minūn, No.23, Āyat 61)


"The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded us to recite a lot of Tasbeeh ("Subhan-Allaah"), Tahmeed ("Al-hamdu Lillaah") and Takbeer ("Allaahu akbar") during this time. ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "There are no days greater in the sight of Allaah and in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Him than these ten days, so during this time recite a great deal of Tahleel ("La ilaaha ill-Allaah"), Takbeer and Tahmeed." (Reported by Ahmad, 7/224; Ahmad Shaakir stated that it is saheeh).
These ten days include Yawm ‘Arafaah (the Day of ‘Arafaah), on which Allaah perfected His Religion. Fasting on this day will expiate for the sins of two years. These days also include Yawm al-Nahar (the Day of Sacrifice), the greatest day of the entire year and the greatest day of Hajj, which combines acts of worship in a way unlike any other day.
These ten days include the days of sacrifice and of Hajj. "

This channel might be able to help you come to a decision. Don't for get the dua is the first and greatest mechanism when seeking the aid of Allah. The Most High. There are videos about the different Muslim countries and what to expect in terms of expenses, jobs, areas for ex-pats etc.

I am not aware of a good documentary perhaps another one of our brothers or sisters know of one.
Here are a few other recommendations however!

A recommended book would be:
Zaad al-Ma’aad by Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him).

Here is a talk on the story of Prophet Muhammad:

The Life of Prophet Muhammad - Audiobook read by Cat Stevens
