And whoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed Allah has sent a measure for all things." (Quran: 65/2-3)

          The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) said:
          'Take advantage of five things before five other things: from your youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your richness before your poverty, your free time before you become occupied, and from your life before your death.' (al-Haakim--Saheeh)

            A man said to al-Hasan al-Basri (rahimahullah):

            ‘The people sit around you so that they may find fault with you!’ So he said, ‘Indeed, I encouraged my soul to aspire for Paradise so it aspired for it. Then I encouraged it to aspire for salvation from Hellfire and so it aspired for it. Then I encouraged it to aspire for salvation from the people, but I didn’t find a way to that. Indeed the people were not pleased with their Creator although He provides for them, so how can they be pleased with another creation like themselves?’ [1]



            Prophet Musa (’alayhisalam) said: ‘O my Lord, the people say things about me which are not (i.e. not true)! So Allah revealed to him: ‘O Musa, I did not make that (privilege) for Myself, so how can I make it the case for you?’ [2]



            Malik ibn Dinar: ‘Since I have known (the reality of) people, I have not taken delight in their praise nor have I hated their criticism.’ It was said to him, ‘Why is that?’ He said, ‘The one who praises from amongst them is excessive and the critic from amongst them exaggerates!’ [3]



            ‘Aisha (radhiallahu `anha) wrote to Mu’awiya (radhiallahu `anhu): ‘Salamun ‘alayk. Amma ba’d, I have heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) say, ‘Whoever gains the Pleasure of Allah by the anger of the people (i.e. thereby gains their anger), Allah suffices him of the people’s troubles. And whoever gains the pleasure of the people by the Anger of Allah (i.e. in the process he gains His Anger), then Allah leaves him to the people.’ Wa-Salaamu ‘alayk.’ [4]



            Imam al-Shafi’i: ‘There is nobody except that he has someone who loves him and someone who hates him. So if that’s the case, let a person be with the people who are obedient to Allah `azza wa jall!’ (- as they love and hate for the Sake of Allah and they are not unjust) [5]

            O Abu Musa! Were you to strive with the utmost striving in order to please all of mankind, then there is no way of achieving that. So as that is the case, make your deed and intention purely for the sake of Allah ‘azza wa jall.

            بسمت فقالوا يرائي بـها = عبست فقالوا بدا ما كتم
            صمت فقالوا كليل اللسان = نطقت فقالوا كثير الكلم
            حلمت فقالوا صنيع الجبان = ولو كان مقتدراً لانتـقم
            بسلت فقالوا لطيشٍ به = وما كان مجترئاً لو حكم
            يقولون شذ إذا قلت لا = وإمعة حين وافقتهم
            فأيقنت أني مهما أرد = رضى الناس لابد أن أذم
            I laughed and they said ‘Won’t you have some shame!’
            I cried and they said ‘Won’t you smile?’
            I smiled and they said ‘He only shows off!’
            I frowned and they said, ‘What he hides has come out’
            I was silent and they said ‘Incoherent’
            I spoke and they said ‘He talks too much!’
            I bore patience and they said ‘What a coward
            And were he to have power he’d surely punish!’
            I was brave and they said ‘He strikes with it
            And were he to rule, he’d surely be reckless!’
            They say ‘wierd!’ when I disagree
            And call me ‘opportunistic’ when I agree
            So I became certain that whenever I wanted to please people,
            I am to be criticised.
            As they say: رضى الناس غاية لا تدرك - “pleasing people is an objective that can never be attained.”

              "If you have burned the Jews, why don't you give a piece of Europe, the United States, Canada or Alaska to Israel. Our question is, if you have committed this huge crime, why should the innocent nation of Palestine pay for this crime?"
