  • Umar bin Khattab (radiyAllaahu 'anhu) said,

    "We were a people who lived in humiliation before, and Allah gave us honor through Islam. So if we seek honor through anything else other than what Allah has honored us with, then Allah will humiliate us".

    [Mustadrak Al Hakim 207, Sahih by Ad Dhahabi in Talkhees and Sahih by Albani in Silsilah Sahiha 51]
    The sunnah is like the ark of Noah, whoever embarks upon it reaches salvation and whoever refuses is drowned.

            • And [He also forgave] the three who were left behind [and regretted their error] to the point that the earth closed in on them in spite of its vastness and their souls confined them and they were certain that there is no refuge from Allah except in Him. Then He turned to them so they could repent. Indeed, Allah is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. (9:118)

                • "When a person commits a sin, this is accompanied by darkness. Indeed, disobedience is like a fire, and darkness is its smoke. It is like someone kindling a fire in a room for seventy-years. Do you not think that the roof of that room will be blackened? In the same way the heart is blackened by disobedience. And nothing wipes it clean except repentance to God. Humiliation, darkness, and being veiled from God are thus natural accompaniments of disobedience. But when you repent to God, the effects of these sins disappear.” - Ibn Ata’illah

                  • "When Allah granted Prophet Yoosuf (`alayhis-Salaam) physical beauty it caused him to be locked up in the prison; but when Allah granted him knowledge (when he interpreted the dream of the king) it not only took him out of prison, but elevated his rank in society, clearly showing us the virtue of knowledge and that physical beauty does not mean anything."


                    Ibn al Qayyim [Al-‘Ilm wa Fadhluhu wa Sharafuhu p. 32].

                    وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِن صَوْتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الْأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ - 31:19

                    And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


                    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].

                    • The servant who seeks the pleasure of Allaah, never

                      abandons repentance.



                      He remains in the state of repentance until the end of his life."

                          • 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.”

                            • "If a servant of Allah tries to reflect over the greatness and majesty of Allah, and diverts all of his attention towards Him, he will find no pleasure in the company of other people to the extent that his heart will find no peace with anyone except Allah."

                              • Shaykh ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on him, said:

                                The punishment for a sin committed by a believer is removed in ten ways:

                                1. He repents to Allah (taubah), so Allah accepts his repentance, for the one who repents from sin is like the one who has no sin.

                                2. He seeks forgiveness from Allah (istighfar), so Allah forgives him.

                                3. He does good deeds that erase his sin for good deeds erase bad ones.

                                4. His believing brethren pray for him or seek forgiveness for his sins during his life or death.

                                5. Or they [ask Allah] to bestow on him as gift from the reward for their deeds, with which Allah benefits him.

                                6. His Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, intercedes for him.

                                7. Allah tests him with trials in this world which expiate his sin.

                                8. Allah tests him in al-Barzakh (the intermediate life in the grave, between the death and the Day of Judgment) which expiates his sin.

                                9. Allah tests him in the various stages of the Day of Judgment which expiates his sins.

                                10. Or the Most Merciful of those who have mercy has mercy on him.

                                Whoever, then, is missed by these ten cannot blame anyone but himself.
