  • "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

    Comment




    • Imam al-Shafi' in his final sickness said:
      When my heart was hardened
      and my courses constrained
      I made my hope a stairway
      to Your forgiveness
      My sin burdened me heavily,
      but when I measured it
      by Your forgiveness
      Lord,
      Your forgiveness was the greater.
      "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

      • All humans are dead except those who have knowledge; and all those
        who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good deeds; and
        those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere;
        and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry.
        - Imam Shafi (rahimullah)
        "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

        • You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.

          - Ibn Al-Jawzee
          "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

          • Ibn Qudamah (rahimahumullah) once said that when one slanders you, you should be thankful that he spoke something about you which was untrue, for there are many blemishes on your account which are true which Allah hid from the world.

              • Asalamu alaikum rahmatullah wa barakatu

                When you feel you cannot take it any more, complain to Him and Him alone, then wait patiently until he answers your supplication. Seek solace with the supplication of Yaqub (AS) over his son, Yusuf (AS),
                "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

                • This reminds me of the state people get into when they listen to music. It really disrupts you from that tranquil state brought about by 5 daily salaat. Imagine if people (including myself) just stuck by doing their daily salat and only listened to qur'an and read only good things. This would spread to other good actions, including treatment of others. Perhaps we'd even have a just Muslim world.

                  Sorry just rambling.
                  Abu Malik at-Ash'ari reported:

                  The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Cleanliness is half of faith

                  and al-Hamdu Lillah (all praise and gratitude is for Allah alone) fills the scale, and Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah)

                  and al-Hamdu Lillah fill up what is between the heavens and the earth, and prayer is a light,

                  and charity is proof (of one's faith)

                  and endurance is a brightness and the Holy Qur'an is a proof on your behalf or against you.

                  All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.

                  (deprecated numbering scheme)

                  أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

                  Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].

                  • Abu Darda said: "Three make me laugh. Those that make me laugh are a person who puts his hopes in this worldly life while death pursues him, a person who is heedless of Allah while Allah is not heedless of him, and a person who always laughs while he does not know whether he has pleased Allah or angered Him." (Collected by Ibn Al Mubarak)

                    • Umar Ibn khatab said

                      "I am not worried about whether my du'a will be responded to, but rather I am worrried about whether I will be able to make du'a or not. So if I have been guided by Allah to make du'a, then (I know) that the response will come with it"

                    • One of the Salaaf said: "Beware of the life of this world because its magic is more effective than that of Harut and Marut. The two latter's separate a man from his wife whereas the life of this world separates a man from his Rabb."

                      • The Dunya is worthless to its Lord, and yet it belongs to Him. So it's not right that you value it so much, and it's not even yours!" (Yahya b. Mu'adh, Hilyat'l-Awliya', 14549)

                        • There is no Muslim who supplicates to Allah without sin or cutting family ties in it but that Allah will give him one of three answers: he will hasten fulfillment of his supplication, he will store it for him in the Hereafter, or he will divert an evil from him similar to it.

                            • "It doesn't mean that one shouldn't enjoy life, but that when one understands that the "complete happiness" they are looking for in this dunya doesn't exist here, then it becomes easier to go thru trials and to work for your akhirah."
