      How many blind people would pay anything to be able to read the Qur’an,
      how many deaf people would pay anything to be able hear the Azan,
      … You see; we’re very rich, but just not grateful… “

      “And few of My servants are grateful.”
      [Quran 34:13]
      The sunnah is like the ark of Noah, whoever embarks upon it reaches salvation and whoever refuses is drowned.

        Umar(RA):

        "I looked at all friends, and did not find a better friend than safeguarding the tongue. I thought about all dresses, but did not find a better dress than piety. I thought about all types of wealth, but did not find a better wealth than contentment in little. I thought of all types of good deeds, but did not find a better deed than offering good advice. I looked at all types of sustenance, but did not find a better sustenance than patience."

          One of the salaf (early generation) said: "A person may commit a sin and enter Paradise because of it, or he may do a righteous deed and enter Hell because of it. They said: How is that?

          He said: He commits a sin then keeps thinking of it, and when he remembers that he regrets it, feels sorry, beseeches Allah, hastens to erase it and feels brokenhearted and humble before his Lord, and that removes self admiration and pride from him. Or he may do a good deed then keep thinking of it, talking about it, feeling proud of it and feeling arrogant because of it, until he enters Hell.”

          End quote from Tareeq al-Hijratayn, p. 169-172

            A good word is not the same as a foul word, except that both reveal a lot about the speaker’s character, upbringing, and taste.

              Ibn-ul-Qayyim (rahimahullah) :

              The year is like a tree, months are its branches, days are the branch sticks, hours are its leaves, and the breaths are its fruits. Therefore, if one's breaths are in obedience [to Allah and His Messenger], the fruits of his tree are good. If they are in disobedience, his fruits are bitter. The harvest is on the Appointed Day, when one's fruits are found out to be either good or bitter.
              The sunnah is like the ark of Noah, whoever embarks upon it reaches salvation and whoever refuses is drowned.

                        Trials and tribulation are feeling the heat and the cold, when one knows that they cannot be avoided, he will not feel anger at their onset, nor will he be distressed of disheartened. (Ibn al-Qayyim, al-Madaarij 3/289)

                          "By Allah, I don't fear my past sins,
                          since I have sincerely repented to Allah
                          and Allah loves to forgive.
                          However, what I truly fear is that
                          in the future this heart of mine
                          will cease to rule by this Quran and this revelation."

                            Shaykh ibn Baz (may Allah have mercy on him) requested:

                            O Servant of Allah! You should shun laziness and seclusion. You have to convey Allah’s Command to His Servants.

                            You also have to advise those that you can, anywhere you can. You should advise the leader, scholar, judge, and authorities in your village, town, tribe, and everywhere you can; you should contact people in a good manner and advise and direct them to the good in the best ways.


                            Cooperate with them in righteousness and piety through sermons and reminders, using good words, gently and not aggressively.

                            - Majmoo al Fatawa al Shaykh ibn Baz (7/223)

                                The morning and evening adhkar (Words of remembrance) play the role of a shield; the thicker it is the more its owner will not be affected.

                                Rather, its strength can reach to such an extent that the arrow shot at it will bounce back to affect the one who shot it."
