What you should do when you have nightmares

A couple of nights ago, I woke up to a nightmare that I have not encountered for quite a long time. I realised I was sleeping very still on my left ribs. All my body was quite numb. At that moment, I quickly grabbed my small du’a book to look for what to do. Yes, I’ve never thought I would face this situation in a sudden, so I was not prepared (even I have read about it before).

After reading the du’a, I spitted 3 times to the left and seek refuge in Allah from the devil. Then, I changed my position, sleeping on my right ribs.

A few days later, I came across a video shared by a friend in Facebook about sleeping position which can caused nightmares. It was brilliantly showed that the research these Westerners made proven what have been told by our Prophet Muhammad (sallalahualaihiwassalam) more than a thousand years ago.

There are four steps you have to do when you have a nightmare:

  1. Spit 3 times to your left. (Hadith Muslim). Just pretend spitting, without spitting actual saliva.
  2. Seek refuge in Allah from the devil and from the evil you have seen – 3 times. (Hadith Muslim)
  3. Do not tell anyone about your dream. (Hadith Muslim)
  4. Change your position to the other side. (Hadith Muslim)

However, that night, I supplicated this du’a too:

It’s very important for every Muslims to prepare themselves to sleep in following the sunnah way to prevent from any evil or disturbance during our sleeps. I have not been practising the adhkar before sleeps for many months, I think I should get back to it soon. Remember, our sleeps are considered equal to death, maybe small death. May Allah protect us all.

How i memorised the Qur’an in 4 months.

Something I want to practise inshaAllah… May Allah ease us to memorise the Quran 🙂

Fadhil Azman's

Alhamdulillah, I thank Allah for the blessings He constantly gives. I asked Allah to always ease my affairs in revising the Qur’an & give me the means to share with and inspire others(?)

I’d like to make it clear that I have memorised around 9 juzu’ in all the years in my primary school, secondary & pre-uni. So it was kind of memorising 20 plus new juzu’ and revising back the other 9 during these 4 months. I am also not having any commitments other than birrul walidain(doing good to parents) hehe. But by Allah, those who have the intention and desire to memorise the Qur’an for Allah, He will make it easy for you insyaAllah. This is, from my experience.

Below are my tips ;

1- Purify your intentions. 

This is the utmost important point that one should always be mindful of, do it sincerely for the sake of Allah. Hoping for His mercy, obtaining His pleasure &…

Mujawwad and Murattal?

Ramadan came again this year. Alhamdulillah. I’m very pleased to enjoy this Ramadan with embracing the Quran in depth by joining Tajweed Made Easy’s Ramadan Class – Colorful Ramadan. I’ve been eyeing on TME (Tajweed Made Easy)’s class for so long! Just couldn’t find a suitable slot to join yet, but alhamdulillah, Allah made it easy for me to enroll in Colorful Ramadan class which started the first day of Ramadan.

I’ve learned many new things especially on tajweed. MashaAllah, the more I learn about Quran, the more interesting it is to me, I can’t help to look forward for the class every day.

But one thing I learned from Shekhah the other day was about reading in Mujawwad style. Do you know what it Mujawwad?

Mujawwad is an adjective which comes from the noun tajweed which means pronouncing the words and letters of the Quran correctly and according to the classic Arabic. Mujawwad is a melodic style of Qur’an recitation which is known throughout the Muslim world. (Wikipedia)

Example of reciters who read in this style is Al-Minshawi and Abdul Baset. MashaAllah, I don’t even know about these reciters as I was exposed to murattal reciters such as Shaykh Sudais and Minshari Rashid.

I’m sure some of you are a little bit confused with Mujawwad and Murattal. Do check out this video for better explanation about these styles.

Hope we can understand more about the recitations of the Quran and learn about the meaning wholeheartedly. InshaAllah… By the way, who’s your favourite reciter? Mine is as below! 🙂
