    Re: food for thought

    "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

    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)

    "Beware of every hour and how it passes, and only spend it in the best possible way, do not neglect yourself, but render it accustomed to the noblest and best of actions, and send to your grave that which will please you when you arrive to it." [Imam Ibn Al-Jawzee]

    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..

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

    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

    "What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?"

    food for thought

    The sahaba used to do the sunnah because it was sunnah, we leave the sunnah because it is sunnah- Marwa Saad
