رَبِّ ابْنِ لِى عِندَكَ بَيْتاً فِى الْجَنَّةِ

Be firm upon the TRUTH!


Sheikh Muhammad bin Saalih al-Uthaimeen رحمه الله

Be FIRM, and DO NOT change (your stance) because of the large number of attacks on you nor due to (their) being offended by your words. As long as you are upon the TRUTH then be firm, for truth is never budged (by falsehood). Thereafter, defend (the truth) if you are in a weak position. There is nothing lesser than defending (the truth). But if you are in a strong position, then upon you is to attack (the falsehood). For the days take turns (sometimes in your favor and sometimes otherwise).

But (remember) the most important thing is that even if you are in a weaker position, then you should remain firm. And never say: ‘Oh, all the people are in opposition to this.’ Rather, be firm, for Allaah
سُبحانه وتعالى aids His Deen, His Book, His Messenger throughout the ages.

No doubt that you will face harm (from the people). Here is Imaam Ahmad
رحمه الله, he was dragged by a mule in the market and was whipped. But he was patiently firm.

Ways & means by which knowledge is obtained!

            
Edited by: Umm Hasna bint Jabir as-Saylâniyyah

Beneficial knowledge has certain ways and means by which it is obtained and certain paths that are taken in its acquisition and memorization. Amongst the most important of them are: 

Firstly: That the servant asks his Lord for the beneficial knowledge and that he seeks assistance by Him, the Exalted, and shows his need to Him. Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى ordered His Prophet, Muhammad صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم to ask Him that He increases him in knowledge, in addition to his knowledge.

He, سُبحانه وتعالى said:
رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا
And say, “O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.”
[Soorah Taa Haa (20):114].
  
 And the Messenger صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم used to say,
O Allaah, benefit me with what you have taught me and teach me that which will benefit me and increase me in knowledge.
[Reported by at Tirmidhee (5/578) and Ibn Maajah (1/92). Also refer to Saheeh Ibn Maajah (1/47)].

Keep your homes clean and organized !


Advice from Sheikh Saleh al Fawzaan حفظه الله:

"Be diligent (O sisters) in managing your time, such that your work can be enjoyable. And make you homes always like a clean organized garden; for the home is indicative of the lady of the house. And with cleanliness and organization the home will have the most beautiful representation, even if the furniture is modest and humble; and the opposite is also true. When the husband and the children return from their jobs and studies tired, and they find a home organized and clean it will lessen their stress and their load; and the opposite is true. Therefore a clean organized house is from the most important means for the home to be serene and comfortable."

Useful advice on raising children ... (MUST READ !!)


This is an excerpt from the Book of : Imâm Ibnul Qayyim al-Jawziyyah رحمه الله , a famous book called Tuhfat al-Mawdood bi Ahkaam al-Mawlood. One of the most important chapters of his book is the sixteenth chapter, which is entitled 'Fi fusool naafi’ah fi Tarbiyat al-Atfaal tuhmad ‘awaaqibuha ‘ind al-Kabr' (Useful advice on raising children which will have good consequences when the child grows up.)

Here is a summary of what Ibnul Qayyim رحمه الله said:

1. The child should be breastfed by someone other than his mother, two or three days after birth. That is better because her milk after that time will be thick and contain different ingredients, unlike the milk of one who has been breastfeeding for a while. All the Arabs pay attention to that, and they give their children to desert women to breastfeed, as the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم was given to Banu Sa’d to be breastfed among them.

2. They should not be picked up and carried around until they are three months old or more, because they have only recently emerged from their mother’s wombs and their bodies are still weak.

3. They should be given only milk until their teeth appear, because their stomachs are weak and unable to digest food. When the baby’s teeth appear, his stomach has grown strong and is able to be nourished by food. Food should be introduced gradually.
