  • Re: food for thought

    :salams:

    ‘Divine help comes with patience, relief follows difficulty and ease follows hardship. Patience aids and supports a person more than an army of people and in the attainment of victory, it is like the head of the body.’

    [Ibn Al-Qayyim]
    Even in the belly of the whale there was hope.

      “The example of a person who seeks dunya is like that of a person who drinks (salt) water from the ocean. The more he drinks, the thirstier he gets, until he is killed by it!” [Kitaab Dham Ad-Dunya, 3/342]

        Wahb Bin Munbih said:

        “The example of the dunya (worldly life) and hereafter is like the example of a man who has two wives. If he pleases one of them, the other one will be displeased.” [Kitaab Dham Ad-Dunya, 1/119]

            The ibtilaa’ (testing) of the believer is like medicine for him. It cures him from illness. Had the illness remained it would destroy him or diminish his reward and level (in the hereafter). The tests and the trials extract these illnesses from him and prepare him for the perfect reward and the highest of degrees (in the life to come).”
            -Ibnul Qayyim

              ‘Alee (ra) said in describing the strangers”

              “They are then able to bear with ease what the opulent find burdensome, meaning that the person accustomed to a luxurious life will find it difficult to leave the comforts and lusts of this world. This is because he has nothing to replace his worldly life where he to abandon it and as such cannot bear the thought of losing it.” [Quoted by Ibn Rajab in “The Journey Of The Strangers”, translated by Shaykh Aboo Rumaysah

                  It is reported that ʿUthmān b. ʿAffān – Allāh be pleased with him – once addressed the people in a sermon. He praised Allāh, then said:

                  O people! Fear Allāh and obey Him, for piety is a valuable prize. Verily the most intelligent person is he who takes account of himself and works for what comes after death, and acquires through the light (guidance) of Allāh a light for the darkness of the grave.

                  The servant of Allāh should fear lest Allāh the Mighty and Sublime resurrects him blind though he used to see. A few comprehensive words can be enough for a wise man, whereas the deaf (who does not listen to guidance) is being called from afar.

                  And know that whoever Allāh the Mighty and Sublime is with has nothing to fear; but whoever Allāh the Mighty and Sublime is against, then in whom can he hope after Allāh?!

                  Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-ʿIlm 4:116,117.

                      Son of Adam; You seek the world as if your very life depended on it and you seek the Hereafter as if you have no need for it! You will acquire what you need from this world even if you don’t run after it, but you’ll only attain the Hereafter if you run after it.-Yahya ibn Mu’adh

                        In earning the world lies the disgracing of souls, and in earning the hereafter is its honour. How strange is that person who opts for disgrace in seeking that which shall perish over honour in seeking that which shall remain?' Abu 'Ali Rudhbari.

                            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 Mas'ud; reported by Ibn Abi Dunya in Dhamm al Dunya')

                              “The people of knowledge and understanding that I have met in our country, when one of them was asked a question on an issue, he would feel like one about to die. But the people of our own time love giving fatwa (without hesitation). Had they known what they are going to face tomorrow (in the Day of Judgement) they would not have done that. Umar, `Ali and ‘Alqama are some of the best Companions of the Prophet, yet when anyone of them was asked a question, he would consult his fellow companions before giving an answer. But it is unfortunate that fatwa has become the pride for the people of our time”.
                              Imam Malik ibn Anas.
