Then, at that moment of reflection, how can any loyal servant of Allah wannabe say such things when there are so many things to NOT be tired about and to look forward to.
Oh boy, this temporary world really is tiring.
Abdullah ibn Ahmad Hanbal asked his father, "When can we truly rest?"
Looking into the eyes of his son, he said, "We can truly rest, when we have taken a step in Jannah."
Dear Allah... allow me to overcome ALL the temporary worldly challenges so that I can truly rest in the hereafter, in Jannah. If you have predestined for me to fail any of them, allow me to overcome it with patience and eeman.
Im tired but I thank you for these FEW challenges and the COUNTLESS blessings and nikmat that you have gifted me with, especially the nikmat of knowing that You is actually, enough. ('=
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Once, I told myself not to be fooled by this world's temporary distractions. I got swept away....
Only myself to blame...
I acknowledge that Saff-Perdaus was a platform for my tarbiyyah. My usrah, my brothers, the constant reminders, the mathurat, the Quran memorisation, the hadith memorisation. All...now...gone...
Thank you Allah for this jolt last night. I know I can't do this alone. Surround me with such people again. At least if I don't remember you, they will remind me to.
Umar ibn Al Khattab (RA) once said to his companions, “Make a wish.” So one of them said, “I wish that this house was filled with gold so that I could spend it for the sake of Allah and give it in charity.” Another said, “I wish it was filled with precious stones so that I could spend them for the sake of Allah and give them in charity.”
Umar (RA) again said, “Make a wish.”
His companions didn’t know what else to say.
Then he (RA) said, I wish that it was filled with men like Abu Ubaydah ibn Al-Jarrah, Muadh ibn Jabal, Salim the freed slave of Abu Hudayfah, and Hudayfah ibn Al-Yaman (RA)*, so that I may employ them in the service of Allah.”
The best gift from any Muslim to his/her community is him/herself.
Assalamualaikum wr wb!
I was chatting with a friend and we came to talk about this topic of extreme differences in understanding of practicing the Qur'aan and Sunnah.
And then I came across this hadith.
Anas says: "During a journey, I saw the Messenger of Allah pray eight rak'at in the early day. When he finished, he said: 'I prayed my prayer wishing and fearing. I asked my Lord for three things and He gave me two and withheld one. I asked Him not to put my ummah to trial by famine and He granted that request. And I asked that they would not be overtaken by their enemies and He granted that request. And I asked that they not be split into groups and parties and He refused that request."' This is related by Ahmad, an-Nasa'i, al-Hakim, and ibn Khuzaimah who classifies it as sahih.
Having read this hadith, it really is a reminder that if we are not careful, we may fall into such traps. Islam unites, not divide.
Our Prophet s.a.w. prayed such that we are united. That was what he wanted of us and if we truly love him and wants to live by his way, this is one of it.
Oh Allah, bind our hearts,ummah of our Prophet s.a.w. together in keeping on the path that You redha. ('=
As I recall raising my hands to make du'a. Reciting "Yaa Faariqal Furqan, Wa Munzilal Qur'an, Bil Hikmati Wal Bayaan, Baarikillah hummalana fi shahr Ramadhan...."
The thought of ramadhan leaving and the thought of "have I done enough?" and the thought of "have I gotten closer to Allah and having Islam as my way of life?" was just too overwhelming.
Yaa Allah, this small heart needs more cleansing. pakai clorox pon takpe! Extra white! ^_^
Aigoo...Pls don't gooo... >.<
" The Prophet s.a.w. was not an elitist. When the Prophet s.a.w. was sitting down, and he was kicking back with Abu Bakr and Umar r.a. and you walk into that masjid you would have "Which one's the Prophet S.A.W.?" He didnt sit on something higher than them, or dress in something that anointed him. He didnt have something that was distinguishing mark that was apparent to a person from distance. He was a normal guy. he was a normal man with an extraordinary mission, extraordinary purpose of life. so our aim is to recapture that natural sunnah. another word for it is fitrah. so that your heart is at ease in the worship of Allah." - Sheikh Yahya Ibrahim
The BEST of mankind and yet, the most humble of them all. MasyaaAllah.
Oh Allah, please allow me to be amongst those who follows him s.a.w. with hikmah and rahmah.
