    food for thought

    The sahaba used to do the sunnah because it was sunnah, we leave the sunnah because it is sunnah- Marwa Saad
    It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

    More food for thought, I posted this in another thread but since it's good reminder I figure it would fit in well here. Something to think about any way

    Anyway I don't think the takwa of the sahaba can be compared.

    Re: food for thought

    I heard Ahmad Musa Jibril quote from the Quran I think that we will have NO faith till we do what the Prophet SAW said.

    That sounds like everything the Prophet SAW commanded or did is fardh. And that it is kufr not to do sunnah :/ so I doomed.. Oh well I will try my best..

    Do not say about Allah but Truth.

    Re: food for thought

    Once Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) said to Al-Ahnaf bin Qais (Radi Allahu Anhu):

    “Oh Ahnaf, the more one laughs, the less dignity will he possess.
    Whoever jokes (excessively) is a person who will be taken lightly.
    Whoever does something frequently will known by that thing.
    Whoever speaks often, errs often; the more often one errs, the less modesty he will possess; Whomever has a low level of modesty will also have a low level of piety; and when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies.”
    When advising another man, Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) said,


    “Do not speak about that which does not concern you.
    Know your enemy and be wary of your friend, except for the trustworthy one. And no one is trustworthy, except for the person who fears Allah.
    Do not walk with the evildoer, lest he teaches you some of his evil; and do not reveal your secrets to him.
    And when you consult others in your affairs, consult only those who fear Allah ‘Azza wa jall.”


    (Sifatus-Safwah 1/149)

    "If [a person going through a calamity] looks at what has befallen him, he will find that what his Lord has left for him is similar to it or better than it; and if he is patient and accepts it, He has stored up for him something that is many times greater than what he has lost through this calamity; and if He willed, He could have made the calamity even greater.— Ibn al-Qayyim

    Inform Him of what is in your heart but know that He Knows. He Knew what was, what is, and what will be, in this universe and in those chambers of your heart, those paths through your soul. But call out to Him and beseech Him because just as you love to be heard, He loves to be called. Just as you love to be given, He loves to be asked. Just as you love to be forgiven, He loves to grant you that forgiveness. He is your Lord, Maker, and Protector, and He is close to you. Know Him and strengthen your bond and connection with Him because nobody, absolutely nobody will be there for you as much as He is there and will always be there…

    Imaam Ibn Qayyim (rahimahu-Allaah) said:

    “Regret for wasted time should be deep, for time passes quickly and it is difficult to make up what you have missed. Time for the worshiper is a time for worship and reciting awraad (adhkar), and for the devoted Muslim it is time for turning to Allaah عز و جل and focusing on Him سبحانه وتعالى with all his heart.

    Time is the dearest thing to him and he would feel very sad if time passes without him doing what he is meant to do. If he misses time, he can never make it up, because a second time has its own duties. So if he misses time, there is no way he can bring it back.”

    (Madaarij al-Saalikin, 3/49)

    Improve your secret and private life and Allah will improve your public and social life. Make matters well between you and Allah, and Allah will make matters well between you and people. Work for the Hereafter, and Allah will be enough for you in your worldly concerns.

    Jazakallah khair. Really needed to read something like this as I've been having a rough few days in some ways. Alhumdulillah for everything. This post really hit me right where I needed it.
    Thanks for these posts and threads you make. I know they attract considerably less traffic than the light hearted threads but you never know when someone who really needs to read it will come across it like i did.

    Be grateful no matter what the calamities are. Remember, miracles can happen in seconds, only when Allah wills it. It can happen today, maybe tomorrow and maybe it will happen some other day. Allah says: give the glad tidings to the patients. So, be among the patient and help is just round the corner!" ♥

    Don't rush your Salah for anything as you're standing in front of The One Who is in charge of whatever you are rushing for.

    How many blind people would pay anything to be able to read the Qur’an,
    how many deaf people would pay anything to be able hear the Azan,
    … You see; we’re very rich, but just not grateful… “

    “And few of My servants are grateful.”
    [Quran 34:13]

    It was said to Imam Ahmad (may Allah have mercy on him):

    ‘May Allah reward you for the good you have (done) for Islam.’

    He said:

    ‘RATHER, ALLAH HAS (DONE) GOOD FOR ME THROUGH ISLAM. WHO AM I, AND WHAT AM I?’”

    - Quoted by Imam Dhahabi in As-siyar a'lam an-nubala (11/225)

    Ibn-ul-Qayyim (rahimahullah) :

    ❝ The year is like a tree, months are its branches, days are the branch sticks, hours are its leaves, and the breaths are its fruits. Therefore, if one's breaths are in obedience [to Allah and His Messenger], the fruits of his tree are good. If they are in disobedience, his fruits are bitter. The harvest is on the Appointed Day, when one's fruits are found out to be either good or bitter.❞

    Trials and tribulation are feeling the heat and the cold, when one knows that they cannot be avoided, he will not feel anger at their onset, nor will he be distressed of disheartened. (Ibn al-Qayyim, al-Madaarij 3/289)
    I think ibn qayyim said this but I'm not sure

    Trials make you grow, grow to be a better person by testing your patience and tolerance. Trials make you stronger, give you courage to push yourself further. Trials teach you never to give up and give you hope.
    Most importantly Trials remind you of Allah, to bring you closer to Allah and that bond is makes the trials worthwhile.

    Re: food for thought

    There are many pieces that make up our lives: Moments that break us. Moments that raise and shape us. Decisions we make to hold on. Or let go. People who enter our lives and leave us changed forever. The ones we love, the ones that hurt us, or heal us, or leave us. Sometimes we don't understand these pieces—or even despair over them. It’s only when time goes by and we look back, that we suddenly can see our whole life like a perfectly designed puzzle.
    Don’t be afraid of the puzzle piece you’re in now. It will fit perfectly…just like the rest. How could it not? The Designer is perfect.
