Between You & the One in the Grave

Image result for grave in islam

It is reported that Al-Hasan Al-Basrī (رحمه الله) once said during the funeral of a man:

May Allāh have mercy on the man who works for the likes of this day; for today you are able to do what these brothers of yours, the residents of these graves, cannot do. So make full use of your health and free time before the day of distress and accounts comes upon you.

{Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Dhamm Al-Dunyāarticle 53}

O’ son of Adam, you are nothing but a few breaths!!

Animated wallpaper, screensaver 240x320 for cellphone
Hasan Al-Basri رحمه الله:

Every day the sun rises, it calls upon us:
"O people! I am a new day;
I am an observer of your actions.
Take advantage of me for I will not return until the Day of Judgment.
O’ son of Adam, you are nothing but a few breaths!!
Once one breath goes out, part of you goes with it.
In the same way that part of you has gone, soon all of you will go."

O Son of Aadam, Think!!

The World is three days: As for yesterday, it has vanished, along with all that was in it. As for tomorrow, you may never see it. As for today, it is yours, so work in it.

Increase of Provision through Forgiveness - 1


Hasan al Basri رحمه الله mentioned:

That a man complained to him concerning drought so it was said seek forgiveness from Allaah, another complained about another matter so it was said seek forgiveness from Allaah, another complained about lack of rain for his land so it was said seek forgiveness from Allaah another complained of no offspring so it was said seek forgiveness from Allaah, then he (Hasan al Basri) recited.

Eemaan (Faith)


Al-­Hasan al-­Basri رحمه الله said: 

“Eemaan (faith) is NOT outer decoration, nor mere hope. Rather it is what settles in the heart & what is affirmed by actions. Whoever spoke good, but did not act righteously, then Allaah throws it back upon his saying. Whoever spoke good & acted righteously, Allaah raises up the actions. 

This is because Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى says:

To Him ascend all goodly words, & righteous actions raise it’.”

"Sell your current life for your latter life.."




Imaam al-Hasan al-Basree (rahimahullaah) said:

“O son of Aadam! Sell your current life for your latter life, and you will win both. Do not sell your latter life for this life, for you will lose them both. The period of stay is short, and the righteous ones went away before you, so what are you waiting for? Do you wait your turn? By Allah, it is about to come, and then the latter ones will join the former ones amongst you.”

[At-Tabseerah, vol. 1, p.368]

“The capital of the believer is his religion, it is always with him, he does not leave it behind when on a journey & neither does he entrust it to another.”

Knowledge Transforms the Students


Al-Hasan Al-Basrî  (Allaah have mercy on him) said:

“When a man sought knowledge, it would not be long before it could be seen in his humbleness, his sight, upon his tongue & his hands, in his prayer, in his speech & in his disinterest (zuhd) in worldly allurements. And a man would acquire a portion of knowledge & put it into practice, & it would be better for him than the world & all it contains – if he owned it he would give it in exchange for the Hereafter.”

Ibn Al-Mubârak, Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqâ`iq Vol.1 p.156.
