Ibnul Qayyim رحمه الله on Trials


Allaah afflicts a servant with trials until he becomes honorable


Ibnul Qayyim رحمه الله said, 


“Were it not that Allaah the Exalted cured His servants with the medicine of tests and trials, they would transgress and commit evil. When Allaah the Exalted intends goodness for a servant, He makes him drink the medicine of tests and trials from providence according to his situation in order to cure him from deadly diseases, until He purifies him and cleans him and he achieves the most honorable status in the world, that of being a true servant of Allaah, and he is given the GREATEST reward in the Hereafter, that of seeing Allaah and being close to Him.”

Ikhlaas cannot be achieved except after having Zuhud

  

Sheikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله:

"Ikhlaas cannot be achieved except after having Zuhud, and there is no Zuhud except after having Taqwa, and Taqwa is following the Commands (of Allaah and His Messenger
) and keeping away from prohibitions."
[Majmuu' al-Fataawa 1/94]

 Ibnul Qayyim al-Jawziyyah
رحمه الله:

"Sincerity is not combined in the heart along with the love of being praised by the people and being commended by them, and also having greed for what the people have, except like water being combined with fire."
[Al-Fawaaid 267]

Allaah is able to do all things!

Your Hamm...! Sincere Advice to sisters

Animated wallpaper, screensaver 240x320 for cellphone



Umm ‘Abdillaah ‘Aaishah Al Waadi’iyyah حفظها الله (daughter of Sheikh Muqbil bin Haadee رحمه الله) said after the opening du’aa (via tele-link):

O sisters, Upon us is to have mercy upon ourselves. Save yourselves from the Fire. There is no way out for anyone from the Fitnah that we are in now, except by sticking to what the Prophet (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) came with.”

Hadeeth of Abu Najeeh Al ‘Irbaad bin Sariyyah’ (رضي اللّه عنـه):

The Prophet (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) admonished us with an intense sermon which caused our hearts to tremble, and the eyes to shed tears. So, we said: 'Yaa Rasoolallaah (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) this is as if it were your last sermon.'  
{Aboo Daawood and others declared it Saheeh}

There is no way out for anyone except by sticking to the Sunnah which the Prophet (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) came with. This holding requires submission, a complete submission. As believers, it is a must on us. We have to say regarding any command from Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى and HIS Messenger (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم), “Sami’naa wa ata’naa,” (We hear and we obey), and not like the Yahood (Jews) who said,We hear and we disobey.”

It is not befitting for the believing man nor the believing woman, when the Prophet (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) comes with a decision, that they have a choice after him.

O sisters, the truth is very heavy. Falsehood is light (easy to accept). It is very heavy, except for those whom Allaah made it easy and guided them for that.”

Al Hadeeth: 
Jannah is surrounded by undesirable things, and the Fire is surrounded by desires.  “O sisters, it is upon us that we get used to submitting to Allaah.”

Umm ‘Abdillaah (حفظها الله) mentioned a poem:

Your nafs are always wanting if you make it a habit. If you control and limit yourself, that is what your nafs will get used to.”

Do not say ‘why’ to the command of Allaah.” Umm ‘Abdillaah (حفظها الله), gave the example of Salaat by saying; “Pray and get used to it. We are commanded to Fast, so you must Fast, make Hajj and ‘Umrah. HE, سُبحانه وتعالى, has made certain things compulsory towards the husband and we do not say why.”

O sisters, it is up to us to preserve our tongues, especially because the Prophet (صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم) told us the reason why women are the majority in the Hell Fire. Be more careful than men. Women curse a lot and have many complaints. It is not a good habit to complain to this sister, that sister, to this one, and that one. Guard your tongue.”

Trees of the Heart


Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (رحمه الله) said in Al Fawa'id, Pages: 239-240:

Ikhlaas and Tawheed are a tree in the heart. Its branches are the actions, and its fruits are the good life in this Dunyah and everlasting bliss in the Aakhirah.

And just as the fruits of Jannah are neither cut off (by change of season) nor out of reach, likewise is the case with the fruits of Tawheed and Ikhlaas.

Shirk, lies, and riyaa are a tree in the heart. Its fruits in the Dunyah are fear and anxiety, grief and distress of the breast and oppression upon the heart. Its fruits in the afterlife are the tree of zaqqoom and an everlasting punishment.

And Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى has made mention of these two trees in Surah al Ibrahim:

أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ ضَرَبَ اللّهُ مَثَلاً كَلِمَةً طَيِّبَةً كَشَجَرةٍ طَيِّبَةٍ أَصْلُهَا ثَابِتٌ وَفَرْعُهَا فِي السَّمَاء 
تُؤْتِي أُكُلَهَا كُلَّ حِينٍ بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهَا وَيَضْرِبُ اللّهُ الأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ
وَمَثلُ كَلِمَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ كَشَجَرَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ اجْتُثَّتْ مِن فَوْقِ الأَرْضِ مَا لَهَا مِن قَرَارٍ

"See you not how Allaah sets forth a parable? A goodly word as a goodly
tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the sky
(i.e. very high). Giving its fruits at all times, by the leave of its
Lord, and Allaah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may
remember. And the parable of an evil word is that of an evil tree
uprooted from the surface of earth, having no stability
."
[Ibrahim 14:24-26]

Light on the tongue, heavy on the scales


وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏
"‏كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان، ثقيلتان في الميزان، حبيبتان إلى
الرحمن‏:‏ سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم‏"

‏ ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏

Abu Hurairah رضي اللّه عنـه reported:
The Messenger of Allaah () said, "There are two statements that are light on the tongue to remember, heavy in the Scales and are dear to the Merciful: 'Subhan-Allaahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan-Allaahil-Azeem.'
[Glory be to Allaah & His is the praise, (and) Allaah, the Greatest is free from imperfection]'.
[Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

The reward of those who have a heavy scale is mentioned by Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى
 in His Noble Book:

فَأَمَّا مَن ثَقُلَتْ مَوَازِينُهُ
فَهُوَ فِي عِيشَةٍ رَّاضِيَةٍ
'Then as for him whose balance (of good deeds) will be heavy,
He will live a pleasant life (in Paradise).'
(Al-Qari'ah 101:6-7)
