NEVER DEPRIVED

23 Jun

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى عَنْهُ ، قَالَ : ” مَنْ رُزِقَ خَمْسًا لَمْ يُحْرَمْ خَمْسًا . وَمَنْ رُزِقَ الشُّكْرَ لَمْ يُحْرَمَ الزِّيَادَةَ لِقَوْلِهِ تَعَالَى : لَئِنْ شَكَرْتُمْ لأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ سورة إبراهيم آية 7 ، وَمَنْ رُزِقَ الصَّبْرَ ، لَمْ يُحْرَمَ الثَّوَابَ لِقَوْلِهِ تَعَالَى : إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى الصَّابِرُونَ أَجْرَهُمْ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ سورة الزمر آية 10 ، وَمَنْ رُزِقَ التَّوْبَةَ لَمْ يُحْرَمَ الْقَبُولَ لِقَوْلِهِ تَعَالَى : وَهُوَ الَّذِي يَقْبَلُ التَّوْبَةَ عَنْ عِبَادِهِ سورة الشورى آية 25 ، وَمَنْ رُزِقَ الِاسْتِغْفَارَ لَمْ يُحْرَمَ الْمَغْفِرَةَ لِقَوْلِهِ تَعَالَى : اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا سورة نوح آية 10 ، وَمَنْ رُزِقَ الدُّعَاءَ لَمْ يُحْرَمَ الْإِجَابَةَ لِقَوْلِهِ تَعَالَى : ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ سورة غافر آية 60

Abu Huraira RadiAllahu anh said, whoever is blessed to make duaa won’t be deprived of the response for Allah Subhanhu wa ta’la says, “Call me and I will respond to you.”

BE GENTLE

16 Feb

A man with Yahyā b. Mu’ādh رَحِمَهُ الله recited the verse: “And speak to him [i.e. Phir’oan] with gentle speech.” Yahyā cried and said, “My Lord, this is Your gentleness with who says I am your God [i.e. Phir’oan], then how will be Your gentleness with who says You are God.” (Tafsīr al-Baghawī)

WHILE I AM A SLEEP

4 Feb

كان مالك بن دينار يقول : والله لو استطعت أن لا أنام ما نمت، فقيل : لماذا يا أبا يحيى، قال : أخشى أن يأتيني ملك الموت وأنا نائم ولا أريد أن يأتيني إلا وأنا على عمل صالح

Malik ibn Dinar used to say, “if by Allah, I was able, I would not sleep.” When asked why, he said, “I fear that the angel of death would come to me while I am a sleep and I do not want him to come except that I am doing a good deed.”

YOUR WORTH

20 Nov

قال إبن القيم:  لا تبحث عن قيمتك في أعين الناس ابحث عنها في ضميرك فإذا ارتاح الضمير ارتفع المقام وإذا عرفت نفسك فلا يضرك ماقيل فيك.

Ibn al-Qayyim RahimahuAllah said, “do not look for your worth in the eyes of people; look for it within your self. If your conscious is at peace then you will ascend high, and if you truly know yourself then what is said about you will not harm you.”

ONE WORRY

18 Nov

لاتحمل هم الدنيا فإنها لله، ولاتحمل همَّ الرزق فإنه من الله، ولاتحمل هم المستقبل فإنه بيد الله، فقط احمل همًا واحدًا كيف ترضي الله،،لأنك لو أرضيت الله، رضي عنك وأرضاك وكفاك وأغناك

Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahuAllah said, “Do not worry about the affairs of this world for they are for Allah. And do not worry about your provision for it is from Allah. And do not worry about the future for it is in the Hands of Allah. Have one and only one worry: How to please Allah. For if you please Allah, you will be pleased and it will suffice you and enrich you.”

BETWEEN TWO

13 Oct

Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahuAllah mentions that Allah has made a struggle between two states of reliefs– one before and one after. A trail between two free states, and hardship between two eases. So there is no trail which is permanent. And there is no hardship which is permanent… And perhaps a slave looks at something and says it is a punishment but hidden in it is a blessing.

WHAT IS SUCCESS?

5 Aug

قالُ الحَسنُ البَصري: إذَا هَانَت عَليكَ صَلاتك فَمَا الذي يَعـزُ عَليـكْ؟ بقدر ماتتعدل صلاتك تتعدل حياتك. ألم تعلم أن الصلاة اقترنت بالفــلاح. “حي على الصــــــــلاة حي على الفـــلاح”. فكيف تطلب من الله التوفيق وأنت لحقه غير مجيب

al-Hasan al-Basir said, “When prayer is the least of your concerns, then what is your most important concern? As much as you fix your prayer, your life will be fixed. Did you not know that prayer was equated with success: ‘Come to Prayer, Come to Success.’ How can you ask Allah SWT for success when you are not responding to His right upon you?”
