Learn Knowledge before it is taken away...


 

It is reported that Abû Al-Dardâ` –(Allâh be pleased with him) used to say:

 “Learn knowledge before it is taken way, & it is taken away by its people (scholars) being taken away. The scholar & the student are partners in good & there is NO good in any other people. The richest of men is the knowledgeable man whose knowledge is needed: he benefits those who need him & if done without, he benefits himself with the knowledge Allâh ‘azza wa jalla has placed with him. 

What can my enemies do to me?



“What can my enemies do to me? I have in my breast both my heaven & my garden. If I travel they are with me, never leaving me. Imprisonment for me is a chance to be alone with my Lord. To be killed is martyrdom & to be exiled from my land is a spiritual journey…

Whatever Allaah has decreed for His believing slave is a blessing…


 

Whatever Allaah has decreed for His believing slave is a blessing even if that is in the form of withholding; it is a favour even if that is in the form of a trial, & the calamity decreed by him is fair even if it is painful.
Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim (rahimahullaah)
 [Madaarij al-Saalikeen, 4/215]

Shaqeeq al Balkhee stated:

"Whoever would like to know what his relationship with Allaah is, let him look at what people promise him, & what Allaah promises him, & see which of the two his heart is more assured of."

Knowledge on the mind..


                  
 It is reported that Al-Husayn b. Muhammad said:  

Muhammad b. Ismâ`îl Al-Bukhârî was distinguished with three qualities – in addition to the rest of his praiseworthy traits: 'He never spoke much, he never yearned for what people had. He would never occupy himself with other people’s affairs; all his attention was towards knowledge.'

Saying “انشاء الله - (Inshaa'Allaah)” keeps us from Lying!


A subtle point of benefit to appreciate regarding the obligation of relegating our future actions to the Will of Allaah by saying انشاء الله  (inshaa’Allaah)”

Some of the scholars (like al-Qurtubee) mentioned that if we say something

Joy because of the Coming of the Month of Ramadhan...

 Shaikh Saleh al Fawzaan

 
 So in brief, this is a tremendous opportunity in your life, so take advantage of it & ask Allaah to assist you upon righteous actions in it, & ask Allaah for acceptance & an increase from His bounty. For indeed the one who reaches this month of Ramadan & Allaah enables him to achieve benefit from it, then Allaah has bestowed upon him a magnificent blessing that nothing can equal.
By Allaah, the millionaires, owners of skyscrapers & realtors cannot equal this.

Begin with the Memorization of the Mighty Qur’aan

Imaam an-Nawawee said:

“So the first thing which he should begin with is the memorization of the mighty Qur'aan, which is the most important of the branches of knowledge. And the Salaf did not used to teach hadeeth or fiqh, except to one who had memorized the Qur'aan. So when he has memorized it, then let him beware of pre-occupying himself from it with hadeeth, or fiqh, or other things, to the extent that it leads him to forget anything from the Qur'aan, or makes that likely.”

[Al Majmoo' Sharhul Muhadhab (1/38).]

I worshiped Allaah for Fifty Years…


Al Haafidh ad Dhahabee

 Flower


Nasr ibn Mahmood al Balkhee said; Ahmad ibn Harb stated:

“I worshiped Allaah for fifty years, I wasn’t able to find the sweetness of worship until I forsook three things:
1.         I forsook seeking the acceptance of people, so I was able to speak the truth.
2.       I forsook the companionship of the sinner, so I was able to accompany the righteous.
3.        I forsook the sweetness of the life of this world, so I was able to find the sweetness of the afterlife.

The heart, in its journey to Allaah...


Photo: Welcome to the Spider's Web
"The heart, in its journey to Allaah, Majestic is He, is like that of a bird: love is its head, & fear & hope are its two wings. When the head & two wings are sound, the bird flies gracefully; if the head is severed, the bird dies; if the bird loses one of its wings, it then becomes a target for every hunter or predator."

Ibnul-Qiyyam (rahimah-hullah ta'ala) Madarij al-Salikin(1/390)

Difference between the Believer & the one who turns away from Eemaan

Desertification

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibnul Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (Rahimahullaah) stated:

“Whoever believes in the messengers & obeys them, their enemies display enmity towards him & harm him. Therefore he (the believer) is tested by that which hurts him. If the person doesn’t believe in them & he doesn’t obey them, he is punished in the life of this world & in the hereafter. Therefore that which hurts him comes about. And that which hurts him is the greatest of pain & more lasting than the pain that befalls the followers of the Messengers. Therefore it is a must that that one goes through

Tell us what thunder is???

On the authority of Ibn Abbas, he said: Jews came to Allaah's Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) & said: Tell us what thunder is?
He replied: It is an angel from Allaah's angels that is set over clouds & in whose hands is a mikhraaq (1) by which he drives clouds away, directing them where Allaah commands him.
They said: And what is that sound (of thunder) that we hear?
He said: It is the sound of his voice.
They said: You have spoken rightly.

The Path to reach Allaah (azzawajal) is One..



"This is because the path to reach Allaah is ONE & it is the way that His Messenger was sent with & the path that He revealed His Book with, & none is able to reach Him except by this path. Even if a person tried to reach Him by all paths & try to open all doors, they will find that the paths are blocked & the doors are closed except the one path which is connected to Allaah & reaches Him."..
