is the greatest favor from Allah the almighty to all human beings, He
promised those who adhere to the way of Allah happiness BOTH in the
worldly life and in the Hereafter.
Those who do not feel proud
of their Muslim Identity certainly have doubt in their hearts and have
lack of faith.
It is an extreme honor to
belong to this Deen of Islam and to convey the message of Allah to THOSE

For the early Muslims, Islam
was their sole goal and great honor. They practiced self-sacrifice and
conveyed the sacred message of Islam to all people they reached.
Abdu Allah Ibn Umm Maktoom,

from Jihad, in the battle of AlQadeseyya, he insisted to participate and
he kept the Muslim Flag high through the battle and as a result he died as
a martyr. He was buried where he died.
Gulaibeeb was one of the
poorest companions of the prophet. The prophet married him to an honorable
woman from Al-Ansar from a righteous family, although he had neither
family nor money. In the battle field he died as a martyr, the prophet
asked the companions at the end of the battle to look for him and they
found him dead beside seven of the enemy whom he killed. Upon that, the
prophet said: “He is from me and I am from him” The prophet rested hiS
dead body on his arm until he was buried.
The prophet was proud of
Gulaibeeb and rested his dead body on his arm. Although he was poor, he
was an honorable Muslim devoted his life for the sake of this religion.
Unfortunately, some Muslims
feel ashamed to follow the Sunaa of the prophet, surely this is a great

Why do Muslims feel ashamed
of the Sunna of the prophet which is the way of salvation and happiness in
this life and in the Hereafter?
Some Muslims think that the
non-Muslims are superior and better guided than Muslims as they have some
advanced technology which the Muslim world currently lacks.
Aesha narrated that the
prophet neither admired nor liked anything from this life, except the
