Which is better, patience or tests or prevailing?


Trials prepare the believers to prevail on earth..

It was said to Imaam al-Shaafi’i (may Allaah have mercy on him):

Which is better, patience or tests or prevailing?
He said: Prevailing is the level attained by the Prophets, & there can be no prevailing except after trials. If a person is tried he will become patient, & if he remains patient he will prevail.

Let not your tongue mention the shame of another,..


الإمام الشافعي رحمه الله وهو في ديوانه، قال رحمه الله تعالى
لسانك لا تذكر به عورة امرئ *** فكلّـك عورات وللناس ألسـن
وعينك إن أبدت إليك معايباً *** فدعها وقل : يا عين للناس أعينُ

Imaam Shaafi’رحمه الله  stated:
“Let not your tongue mention the shame of another,
For you yourself are covered in shame and all men have tongues.
If your eye falls upon the sins of your brother,
Shield them & say: “O my eye! All men have eyes!!!”

Say what you wish in abuse of me...


Imaam Ash-Shaafi`ee رحمه الله said: 

"Say what you wish in abuse of me, for my silence towards the idiot is indeed an answer. I am not at a loss for a response but rather, it does not befit the lion to answer the dogs."

“It is upon you to have Taqwa of Allaah when you are forgetful …”

   Poem by Imaam Ash-Shaafi’e


It is upon you to have Taqwa of Allaah when you are forgetful,
Sustenance will come to you from where you don’t know.
How dare you fear poverty when Allaah is the Provider!!
Indeed He provided for the birds & the whales in the sea.
And whoever thought that sustenance comes with power,
when the bird ate something with the eagles.
This world goes by you & you do not know
when the night covers if you will live until Fajr?
How many healthy died without a reason,
and how many weak live forever?
How many youth go to sleep & wake up laughing,
and we buried him at sunset & he didn’t even know?
So whoever lives a thousand, then a thousand years after that,
no doubt there will come a day when you will to the grave!

Let not your Tongue mention the shame of another.....


Imaam Shaafi’i [Rahimullaah]


Let not your Tongue mention the shame of another.....
... For you yourself are covered in
.... Shame {!!! }
And all men have Tongues.


If your Eye falls upon the Sins of your brother
Shield them & say:-
“O my Eye!
All men have Eyes!”

When it comes to my provisions, I rely upon Allaah


..سيأتي به الله العظيم بفضله ..

توكلت في رزقي على الله خالقي *** و أيقنت أن الله لا شك رازقي
و ما يك من رزقي فليس يفوتني *** و لو كان في قاع البحار العوامق
سيأتي به الله العظيم بفضله *** و لو لم يكن مني اللسان بناطقي
ففي أي شيء تذهب النفس حسرة *** و قد قسم الرحمن رزق الخلائق

 
When it comes to my provisions, I rely upon Allaah, my Creator
And I know with certainty that He will no doubt provide for me.
Whatever’s in my due, will not pass me by,
Even if it were to be in the depths of the sea.
Allaah the Exalted will bring it forth by His Grace,
Even if I were to remain silent over it.
So, what can a soul feel sorrow over,
When the Most Merciful has set the provisions of the creation?

- Imaam ash-Shaafi’ee

I made my Hope a Stairway to Your Forgiveness!


Imaam Shafi’i (rahimahullaah) in his final stage of sickness

  

“When my heart was hardened,
and my courses constrained;
I made my hope a stairway,
to Your forgiveness.
My sin burdened me heavily,
but when I measured it by Your forgiveness,
Lord~
Your forgiveness was the greater.”
