Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
The post title kind of gives it away, but welcome to my blog Seekers of Mercy. Or rather, welcome back.
I started this blog a long time ago, and I had some good content (I thought) at the time. But I made a lot of mistakes, not least speaking without knowledge and talking about Islam from my own opinions. But Alhamdulillah, a few years ago, Allaah guided me through some brothers to follow the way of the Salaf, and shortly after, I took down all my previous posts because of the mistakes I saw in them.
After some thought, however, I’ve decided I’m ready to start blogging again in shaa Allaah. There will be things I will do the same as before, such as inspiring myself and then others to get closer to Allaah, but there will also be things I will do differently, such as weighing my words a lot more carefully.
In shaa Allaah here’s an idea of what to expect from the new Seekers of Mercy, as well as some house rules I’m setting myself:
- I won’t be speaking about the religion from my own opinions – anything I do mention, I will include daleel (evidence) in shaa Allaah.
- Every day, I will post a hadith in shaa Allaah. It’ll be found in the hadith section of the website.
- I know there’s a difference of opinion on this, but I won’t be posting content with images on here.
- I will write personal reflections frequently, which will mostly be about my experience of practising. I won’t talk about my personal opinion on an Islamic ruling, but I will talk about how following that ruling affects me personally.
- I will most likely fall short of everything I’ve stated above, so I ask anyone reading to advise me when I do.
I’ll probably update these rules as I go along, but these are a good foundation for now.
Jazakallahu khayra, and may Allaah guide us all to that which is correct.
