  • Re: food for thought

    Narrated Abu Huraira (RA):
    Allah's Apostle (SAW) said,
    "The invocation of anyone of you is granted (by Allah) if he does not show impatience (by saying, "I invoked Allah but my request has not been granted.")
    Bukhari Vol. 8 : No. 352

      The bigger the problem, the greater the lessons.
      The more patience that is required, the greater the reward.

        “The believer in this world is like a stranger: he does not become upset when it puts him down, and he does not compete for it to make him honorable. The people are in a certain state, and he is in another state: the people are relieved of him, and he is exhausted of himself.” - al-Hasan al-Basri

              for the working class a few generations ago like in the era my grandfather lived the concept of needing to go to the gym to work off calories was unthinkable
              work was physical and exhausting. i remember hearing a story about how on one job he did his boss uses to ask him how many sweat rags he had gone through, ie how hard he worked was shown by how many rags he had dirtied by wiping off sweat

                  “Be satisfied with whatever Allah grants you from this worldly life. Walking thereon is like walking in a land that is filled with beasts, and water that teams with crocodiles. That which causes delight, turns to be the source of grief. Pain is found in the midst of pleasures, and delights are derived from its sorrows. As a bird sees the wheat, so does one’s insight perceive polytheism, while vain desires render its holder blind.” [al-Fawwaid]

                        Pay no attention to the whispers of Shaytaan.
                        He who worries about it falls prey to more.
                        Ignoring it is the way to repel it.

                              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.

                                Never do I argue with a man with a desire to hear him say
                                what is wrong, or to expose him and win victory over him.
                                Whenever I face an opponent in debate I silently pray -
                                O Lord, help him so that truth may flow from his heart
                                and on his tongue, and so that if truth is on my side, he may follow me;
                                and if truth be on his side, I may follow him. - Imam Al-Shafi (rahimullah)
