The Believer speaks little & does a lot...

Al-Fudayl b. ‘Ayyâd (rahimahullaah) reported:

The believer speaks little & does a lot, whereas the hypocrite (Munâfiq) speaks a lot & does little. When the believer speaks, it is with wisdom, when he is silent, it is in deep thought, when he sees, he takes lessons, & when he acts, it is a cure. If this is the way you are, then you are in the constant worship [of your Lord.]

Abû Nu’aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliyâ` 8:98.

Reality of People...


Malik ibn Dinar (rahimahullaah) said:

'Since I have known (the reality of) people, I have not taken delight in their praise nor have I hated their criticism.' It was said to him, 'Why is that?' He said, 'The one who praises from amongst them is excessive & the critic from amongst them exaggerates!' 

Tarikh Dimishq (59/307)

Not permissible to WASTE an hour of my Life…

Ibn ‘Aqeel al-Hanbali (rahimahullaah) said of himself:

It is not permissible for me to waste an hour of my life. When I stop discussing issues of knowledge & debating them (with others) & when I stop reading in a book, I would start pondering & thinking when I am resting & lying down, & before I get up, I will have already an idea that I should write down & I am very keen to increase my knowledge now I am in my eighties & more keen than when I was twenty years old.

Ibn al-Jawzi in al-Muntazam, 9/214

Know the value of what was lost


Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:

 Al-Fawaa'id, p.119

“Whoever proposed to the world, then the world would not be satisfied until he gave up his Deen as dowry.”

Abu Al-Hasan Ali bin Ahmad said:

“Deal with optional acts of worship as if they are obligatory, & acts of disobedience as if they are Kufr (disbelief), & your desires as if they are poison, & socializing with the people as if it were fire, & nurturing of your soul as if it were medicine.”

 – Khilasat Al-Athaar, 3/401

Let my Enemies say what they will...

"So let my Enemies say what they will, for my sins are many and perhaps because of their backbiting and slander my sins will be lightened & instead fall upon their shoulders." 

Sheikh Muqbil Ibn Hadi Al-Wadi'ee (rahimahullaah)

Which is better?

“Kind words & forgiving of faults are better than Sadaqah (charity) followed by injury. 
And Allâh is Rich (Free of all wants) & He is Most-Forbearing.”

(Al-Baqarah 2:263)

Homeless & Senseless


It is reported that 'Abdullah b. Mas'ud (Allaah be pleased with him) said:

This world (the dunya) is [only taken as] a home by those who will have no real home [in Jannah], & it is the wealth of those who will have no real wealth, & it is gathered & collected for by those who have no real intelligence.

[Ibn Abi Al-Dunya, Dhamm Al-Dunya article 16.]

A poet once truthfully said:


فمرورها مر السحاب

 

 

العمر أقصر مدة  **  من أن يضيع في الحساب
فاغتنموا ساعاته  **    فمرورها مر السحاب

“One’s age is too short, to be wasted on worldly acquisition.
So benefit greatly from its hours, since its passing is like the passing of clouds.”

[Transcribed from: ‘My advice to women’ by Umm Abdillah al Waadi'iyyah]

The sea of pleasures …

قال الإمام ابن قيم الجوزية رحمه الله
بحر الهوى إذا مد أغرق ، وأخوف المنافذ على السابح فتح البصر في الماء

“The sea of pleasures may drown its owner & the swimmer fears to open his eyes under the water.”

“The [path] always starts with trials & tests, then comes the period of patience & reliance [upon Allaah], & the end is enlightenment, guidance & victory.”

(Shifaa Al-Aleel, p.247) – Imaam ibn Al-Qayyim

“O you who sold yourself..! ..

Ibn Qayyim al Jawziyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

“O you who sold yourself for the sake of something that will cause you suffering and pain, & which will also lose its beauty, you sold the most precious item for the cheapest price, as if you neither knew the value of the goods nor the meanness of the price. Wait until you come to the Day of mutual loss & gain & you will discover the injustice of this contract.

"There is no deity worthy of worship in truth except for Allaah
is something that Allaah is buying. Its price is Paradise, & the Messenger is its agent, & you will be pleased to part with a small part of this worldly life to obtain it. The part you lose is a small part of something that as a whole is not worth a mosquito’s wing.”

لله ملك السموات والأرض

قال الإمام ابن قيم الجوزية رحمه الله

لله ملك السموات والأرض ، واستقرض منك حبة فبخلت بها ، وخلق سبعة أبحر وأحب منك دمعةً فقحطت عينك بها


Ibnul Qayyim al Jawziyyah (rahimahullaah) said:


“To Allaah belongs the kingdom of the heavens & the earth, yet He asks a loan from you (i.e. giving charity) but you are stingy. He created the seven seas, but He loved a tear from you (out of fear of Him) but your eyes were tearless.”

When it comes to my provisions, I rely upon Allaah


..سيأتي به الله العظيم بفضله ..

  Animated wallpaper, screensaver 240x320 for cellphone

 

توكلت في رزقي على الله خالقي *** و أيقنت أن الله لا شك رازقي
و ما يك من رزقي فليس يفوتني *** و لو كان في قاع البحار العوامق
سيأتي به الله العظيم بفضله *** و لو لم يكن مني اللسان بناطقي
ففي أي شيء تذهب النفس حسرة *** و قد قسم الرحمن رزق الخلائق

 
When it comes to my provisions, I rely upon Allaah, 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.
Allaah 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?

- Imaam ash-Shaafi’ee

A poet once said…

“And if you are stricken with calamity then remain patient upon it
patiently persevering, for indeed Allaah knows best your situation.
And if you complain to a child of Aadam then certainly
it is as if you are complaining about the Merciful to those who cannot show mercy.”

‘Ibaadah Preserves You..


 

Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali:

“And whoever is mindful of Allaah (and keeps to His boundaries) in his youth during his years of strength, then Allaah will preserve him in his old age when his strength weakens. And He will allow him to enjoy and benefit from his sense of hearing, sight, capabilities, strength and mind/intellect.
