  • Re: food for thought

    “And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out and will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.” [Qur’an, 65: 2-3]
    Even in the belly of the whale there was hope.

        Anas reported that the Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said, “It a Muslim plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, or a person or an animal eats from it, it is regarded as a charitable gift (sadaqah) for him.” [Sahih Bukhari]

              “There is no compulsion for man to accept the truth. But it is certainly a shame upon the human intellect when man is not even interested in finding out as to what is the truth! Islam teaches that God has given man the faculty of reason and therefore expects man to reason things out objectively and systematically for himself. To reflect and to question and to reflect.”
              ― Maurice Bucaille, The Qur'an and Modern Science

                "Muslims often complain about how life hard is for them with impatience. They forget that this world was designed to be a prison for you and a heaven for the disbeliever. Perspective is everything. Don't forget that we are here only for a test."

                    Every utterance that comes forth does so with the vestment of the heart
                    from which it emerged.
                    - Hikam of Ibn Ibn Ata'illah
                    [Commentry] It is said, that the tongue translates what is in the heart.
                    If the heart is confused or sick, so are the utterances. If the heart is
                    wholesome and pure, then the utterances are real and appropriate. If
                    you contemplate deeply what is being said, you will come to know the
                    state of the speaker and the extent of his connectedness to the Truth
                    and his position with Allah.

                          Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have Mercy on him) summarized the extent of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallams noble manners by saying:

                          The Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) used to greet the children when he passed by them. Sometimes, a little girl would take him by the hand and he would allow her to lead him wherever she wanted. He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) used to lick his fingers after eating. He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) would be in the service of his family when at home. Never would he become angry because of something personal. He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) used to repair his own sandals and mend his own torn clothes.

                          He would milk his goat himself for his own family. He would feed his own camel. He used to eat with his servants, sit in the company of the poor people, and personally take care of the needs of widows and orphans. He would be the one to initiate the greeting when meeting people. He would respond to the humblest of invitations. He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) lived a very modest lifestyle, a man of soft manners, naturally kind, easy to get along with, having a pleasant smile on his face, gracefully humble, extremely generous but not wasteful, soft-hearted and gentle in his dealings with each and every Muslim, lowering the wings of humility to the believers, bearing their companionship in such a gentle way.
                          [Madaarij as Saalikeen 3/111-112

                            “To endure short-lived difficulties that are followed by long lasting ease, is better than hurrying for a short-lived ease that is followed by ever-lasting hardship.”

                              Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (rahmatullahi ‘alayh) narrates from someone of knowledge who said: “Learn to say, ‘I do not know’, and do not learn to say: ‘I know’. This is because if you say: ‘I do not know’, they will teach you till you know. But if you say, ‘I know’, they will continue questioning you till you have no answer.” Ibn ‘Abdil Barr, Jami’ Bayan al-‘Ilm, Vol 2, p. 55
