  • Re: food for thought

    :salams


    When you feel you cannot take it any more, complain to Him and Him alone, then wait patiently until he answers your supplication. Seek solace turning to Allah with the supplication of Yaqub (AS) over his son, Yusuf (AS), “Indeed I complain of my grief and sorrow only to Allah…” (Quran 12:86)
    Even in the belly of the whale there was hope.

        Umar Ibn Khattab (may Allah swt be pleased with him) said:

        "I am not worried about whether my du'a will be responded to, but rather I am worrried about whether I will be able to make du'a or not. So if I have been guided by Allah to make du'a, then (I know) that the response will come with it"

          One of the Salaaf said: "Beware of the life of this world because its magic is more effective than that of Harut and Marut. The two latter's separate a man from his wife whereas the life of this world separates a man from his Rabb."

            "The Dunya is worthless to its Lord, and yet it belongs to Him. So it's not right that you value it so much, and it's not even yours!" (Yahya b. Mu'adh, Hilyat'l-Awliya', 14549)

                " Hearts are like cooking pots. They boil whatever is in them. And the scooping spoons of these pots, are the tongue. Henceforth, look to a person whenever he speaks. For sure, his tongue will scoop up for you what is simmering in his heart; whether it's something sweet or sour, fresh or stale. "

                  "It doesn't mean that one shouldn't enjoy life, but that when one understands that the "complete happiness" they are looking for in this dunya doesn't exist here, then it becomes easier to go thru trials and to work for your akhirah."

                  ~Sh. Muhammad Alshareef

                    Imam ash-Shaafi`ee - rahimahullaah - said:

                    "When it comes to my provisions, I rely upon Allah, my Creator; And I know with certainty that He will no doubt provide for me. Whatever’s in my due, will not pass me by, Even if it were to be in the depths of the sea. Allah the Exalted will bring it forth by His Grace, Even if I were to remain silent over it. So, what... can a soul feel sorrow over, When the Most Merciful has set the provisions of the creation?"

                          Imam ibn al-Jawzi (ra) was once asked:

                          "Is it better for me to make Tasbeeh (praise Allah) or to make Istighfaar (seek forgiveness)?"

                          He replied:

                          "The dirty robe is more in need of soap than perfume"

                            If Allah is with you, then what do you fear, and if Allah isn't with you, in what can you have hope?

                              "The believer speaks little, but does much. And the hypocrite talks a lot, but does little. The believer's speech is wisdom, his silence is contemplation, his gaze is pondering, his actions are righteous. So if this is your state, you shall perpetually be in worship."- Fudayl bin Iyyad
