A hero. Shoot me first, teacher told gunmen ‪#‎PeshawarAttack‬
As Peshawar today buried its dead, pupils from the Army Public School who 
survived the Taliban attack that left 148 people dead revealed how a young
teacher, Afsha Ahmed, had given her life to save theirs.“The [gunmen] 
entered our classroom as we were sitting with our teacher,” one pupil, 
Irfanullah, who was shot in the chest and is recovering in hospital, told 
Newsweek Pakistan. “She seemed to understand what was going on before we 
did because she immediately stood up and prevented the terrorists from 
targeting us.”Speaking from his bed in Peshawar’s Lady Reading Hospital, 
the 15-year-old said that Ms Ahmed, herself aged only 24, had told the 
gunmen she would not let them shoot her charges.“Her last words to the 
terrorists were ‘You must kill me first because I will not see my 
students’ bodies lying in front of me’,” he said. “She was so brave.”The 
youngster, whose school bears the motto “I shall rise and shine”, said the
gunmen were apparently unmoved by her words and threw something at 
her.“The next thing we knew, she was on fire,” he said. “Even while 
burning, she shouted at us to run away and find refuge.”The teenager told 
the magazine that felt guilty for abandoning his teacher and fleeing for 
his life, even though there was nothing he could have done to save her.“I 
feel so selfish for running away instead of trying to find a way to save 
her,” he said. “She is my hero … she was like a superwoman,” said 
Irfanullah. “Who will teach us now?- May Allah grant all the victims 
Jannah. Say A'ameen



Imam al-Shafi’i once said: 
“There’s a verse in The Qur’an that is like an arrow in the heart of every
oppressor and at the same time a source of comfort for the heart of the 
oppressed.”
People asked: “What is it?”
He said: “And never is your Lord forgetful [19:64].”

Sheikh Omar Suleiman is currently conducting an in-depth analysis of the 
hadith of Ibn Umar (r) where he said "RasoolAllah (s) took hold of my 
shoulder and said, 'Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a 
traveller.'" (The sub-narrator added): Ibn Umar used to say, "If you 
survive till the evening, do not expect to be alive in the morning, and if
you survive till the morning, do not expect to be alive in the evening, 
and take from your health for your sickness, and take from your health for
your death."

~ Winter Days ~
Winter has come
And the sunshine has gone
But the shine of the believers is oh so strong
With the days short for fasting
And the nights long for prostrating
Only if we knew the benefit
We would wish it were everlasting
On the Day when our deeds are weighed
We will be thankful for these blessed winter days

Aslaamu alykum, Please visit bradisoc.com every day for inspiring reminders:
Daily Ayah:
Shaikh Abdul Aziz Tarefe: If there is a lack of security in a country, and
the poverty of its people has increased, then search for a favor that has 
been denied or an obligation that has been abandoned:{ فَكَفَرَتْ 
بِأَنْعُمِ اللَّهِ فَأَذَاقَهَا اللَّهُ لِبَاسَ الْجُوعِ وَالْخَوْفِ بِمَا
كَانُوا يَصْنَعُونَ }“…but it (the city) denied the favors of Allah. So 
Allah made it taste the extreme of hunger and fear for what they had been 
doing.” [Al-Naḥl 16:112]
Daily Hadith:
Ibn 'Umar said: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "If Allah
afflicts punishment upon a nation, it befalls the whole population 
indiscriminately and then they will be resurrected and judged according to
their deeds." [Bukhari and Muslim]. Commentary: When Allah's punishment 
comes to pass, it does not distinguish between the upright and the wicked.
However, the pious people will be saved from punishment after their death 
while the wicked ones will be punished in the Hell. May Allah save us from
all types of punishments.
Daily Quote:
“And if you reflect on most people’s situation, you will find that they 
look at their rights over Allah and do not look at Allah’s right over 
them, and from here is where they broke off from Allah.”Ibn Qayyim 
Al-Jawziyyah

Omar Suleiman
My wife is a woman who is not a scholar, hasnt attended a ton of halaqas, 
nor has she EVER given a halaqa in her life, nor does she speak much in 
gatherings, but she is the coolness of her parents eyes, the sanity of her
husband, and a woman who embodies loyalty and devotion. When you see me in
multiple cities every week teaching, she is at home raising a family and 
NEVER once complained about my work in dawah or about me not being home 
enough. Some people talk the talk and some people walk the walk and I see 
her as the latter. May Allah preserve her and elevate her and grant her a 
home in paradise next to Khadijah (rA). And May Allah reward all of the 
righteous sisters out there who do the most unappreciated job in the world
of holding things down at home. AMEENDate: Mon, 29 Dec 2014 22:06:40 +0000
