If something leaves you powerless...???



"If something leaves you powerless and incapacitated, then repeat: 

‘Lā awla wa lā quwata illā billāh’
(There is no might nor power except with Allāh), 

Allāh will make your matter easy."

Ibn al-ʿUthaimīn (رحمه الله),
  {Shar Riyā a-āliīn 5/522}

“But I Don’t Have Time for the Qur'aan..!"


Ibn ʿAbbas رضي اللّه عنـه said, 

"What prevents any of you, when you return from the market or from fulfilling your duties and you recline on your bed, from reciting three verses of the Qurʾān?!"

[Sunan ad-Dārmī]

How to rectify your heart....??

 


If you want to rectify your heart, or want to see betterment in your child or companion—or whoever it is for that matter, then direct them to places where the Qurʾān is recited and direct them to be in the company of the Qurʾān. Allāh will then cause them to become better, whether they are willing to it or not.

Imām ash-Shāfiʿī, in: Hilyat al-awliyāʾ 9/123.

The Mannerisms & Characteristics of those who uphold the Qur'aan - 2

 

By: Umm Hyatt al-Ameriki حفظها الله

We are in Shahrur Ramadhan, the month of Shahrul Qur'aan, the month of seeking forgiveness and seeking pardon from Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى, we are in the month of striving and a month which is considered a great opportunity... The Muslim in general worships Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى every single day and night as this is the life of a believer but Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى has made this particular month the BEST month of the year -- the month the Noble  Qur'aan was revealed. This month is an opportunity for all as opposed to Hajj and Umrah are specific for those who have the capability to perform. But this Shahru Mubarak (the month full of blessings) is a month that everyone participates in (some way or the other) even if they are excused from fasting. Let us not waste this opportunity to return to Allaah in obedience, to ponder and reflect! Time is precious!! We should not waste time in that which does not benefit. When the time of death and the Day of Judgement arrives, (and it is a must for everyone) -- we will regret the time we have lost!

Today's session:
We continue with the first chapter: "The Merits of the recitation of the Qur'aan." 

Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى mentions in His Noble Qur'aan:

الَّذِينَ آتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ يَتْلُونَهُ حَقَّ تِلاَوَتِهِ
"Those to whom We gave the Book, recite it as it should be recited)..."
(Al-Baqarah 2:121)

-- the word is  تِلاَوَتِهِ  - (they recite 'the true recitation' it as it should be recited).
آجُرِّي - Aajjurri mentioned the statement of Mujaahid concerning the tafseer of this verse: يَتْلُونَهُ حَقَّ تِلاَوَتِهِ that he recites it the way it should be recited - (which means they act according to the Book of Allaah). It does not mean mere recitation of the tongue, rather what it means is as what Ibn Qayyim (رحمه الله) mentioned with regards to the ayah in Surah al-Fatir:

What should one preoccupy his time with in Ramadhan


Sheikh Saleh al-Fawzaan حفظه الله 

** (Edited for the blog)

All praise be to Allaah for His blessings and generosity. He has blessed us by allowing us to reach the month of Ramadhan and enabling us to do good deeds by which we can draw nearer to Him. And may the peace and blessings be on our Prophet Muhammad – who was the first to hasten to do good deeds – as well as upon his family and Companions – those who believed in him, supported him and followed the light that was revealed to him. They are the successful ones.

As for what follows, then:

I advise you and myself to fear Allaah during this blessed month as well as in any other month. However, this month has a special merit by which Allaahسبحانه و تعالى has distinguished it, since it is a unique occasion for performing good deeds. 

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) would also give his Companions the glad tidings of its arrival and explain to them its many virtues, saying to them:

“O people! A great and blessed month has come upon you.”
