    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"

    It is related that Abu 'Uthman was once riding in the street when a pot
    of ashes was thrown down upon him. He dismounted, and prostrated
    himself to God in gratitude, and then brushed the ashes from his
    clothes without saying a word. 'Shall you not rebuke them?' he was
    asked, but he replied, 'A man who deserves hellfire but receives only
    ashes cannot fairly be angry'.

    All humans are dead except those who have knowledge; and all those
    who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good deeds; and
    those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere;
    and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry.
    - Imam Shafi (rahimullah)

    Imam Shafi'ee rahimahullah.

    There are four types of people in this world who enter a
    conversation/ discussion:

    1. One who knows not, and himself knows he knows not, is a
    student. Teach that person.

    2. One who knows, and others know he knows, is a teacher. Learn
    from that person.

    3. One who knows, and himself knows not that he knows, is
    humble. Encourage him.

    4. One who knows not, and himself knows not that he knows not,
    is stupid. Avoid that person.

    The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

    “Allah, the angels, the inhabitants of heaven and earth, even the ant in its hole and even the fish in the sea, send blessings upon the one who teaches the people good.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2609; classes as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami‘, 1838)

    The Prophet saw said, “Shall I inform you about the people of Paradise? They comprise every obscure unimportant humble person, and if he takes Allah’s Oath that he will do that thing, Allah will fulfill his oath (by doing that). Shall I inform you about the people of the Fire? They comprise every cruel, violent, proud and conceited person.” ( Sahih Al Bukhari)

    Taqwa is to obey Allah, so that He is not disobeyed, to remember Allah, so that He is not forgotten, and to thank Allah, so that no ingratitude is shown to Him - Abdullah bin Mas’ud

    The sunnah is like the ark of Noah, whoever embarks upon it reaches salvation and whoever refuses is drowned.

    Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jauziyyah: “A person who acts without knowledge is like someone who travels without a guide, and it is known that a person like this will more likely be destroyed than saved.” (Miftah Daar As-Sa'ada, 1/82-83)

    bn Al-Qayyim reports Abdullah ibn Abbas (r.a) as saying: “Verily, good deeds will brighten the face, enlighten the heart, expand provision, strengthen the body, and cause love in the hearts of the creation. Verily, evil deeds will blacken the face, darken the grave and the heart, weaken the body, restrict provision, and cause hatred in the hearts of the creation.”

    When you see someone who seems to have a perfect life, understand that they too are tested by Allah, but their tests are probably private.

    There are many people who go through tests that nobody knows about besides them and Allah.

    So don't become jealous of anybody's life as they may be going through tests that you wouldn't be able to pass.

    - Abu Muawiyah Ismail Kamdar
