  • Re: food for thought

    People think that tests only come in the form of hardships. Allah also tests us with ease, it's often in the test of ease that we fail most.
    ~ Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed
    Abdullah Ibn al-Mubarak: "One doesn't become noble with any type of knowledge if he doesn't beautify his knowledge with good conduct." (Adab Shar'iyyah 4/208)

      It is reported that ‘Abdullāh b. Mas’ūd – Allāh be pleased with him – said:

      "This world (the dunyā) is [only taken as] a home by those who will have no real home [in Jannah], and it is the wealth of those who will have no real wealth, and it is gathered and collected for by those who have no real intelligence."

      [Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dhamm Al-Dunyā article 16]
      Abdullah Ibn al-Mubarak: "One doesn't become noble with any type of knowledge if he doesn't beautify his knowledge with good conduct." (Adab Shar'iyyah 4/208)

        "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].

          It was narrated from Thabit that Anas said:

          "We were with Abu Moosa on a journey, and the people were talking and mentioning worldly matters. Abu Moosa said:

          '0 Anas, these people are talking too much. Come, let us remember our Lord for a while.' Then he said: 'What slowed the people down (in pursuing matters of the hereafter)?' I said: 'Worldly matters, Satan and whims and desires.' He said:

          'No, it is the fact that this world is close, and they can see it, while the hereafter is hidden from them. By Allah, if they could see it with their own eyes, they would not drift or turn away from it."'

          Abdullah Ibn al-Mubarak: "One doesn't become noble with any type of knowledge if he doesn't beautify his knowledge with good conduct." (Adab Shar'iyyah 4/208)

                    Travellers don't fall in love with their hotel room. Just like that a person is not meant to fall in love with this world

                      Worrying about the dunya (this world) is a darkness in the heart, while worrying about the akhirah (hereafter) is a light in the heart.

                        Don't be too harsh on people. Sometimes, their behaviour or attitude towards you might have absolutely NOTHING to do with you. You probably don't know the hidden demons they are facing in their lives or the stuff that's happening inside the four walls of their homes. Just be kind. Simple.
                        Sometimes that's enough, sometimes, it could mean the world to them. Gentleness and kindness beautifies everything.

                              "We all have our days where we feel we can't survive. Sometimes dreams are shattered, friendships may fall apart. Loved ones may hurt us, finances may worry us, sickness may overtake us and we lose the people we love. But Allah will always be there to guide us even through the toughest of times. Never lose faith and always hope for the best. When you find a dream inside your heart don't ever let it go because dreams are the seeds from which beautiful tomorrows grow. Appreciate each day as a special gift filled with abundance, for Allah's blessings are like a fountain flowing endlessly"

                                No matter how wealthy you are, you cannot buy peace of mind and contentment. That can only be granted by Allah.
