You are in Need of Him!

11/28/2011 at 20:18 (Gems, Repentance)

 

What a wonderful thing it is to know Him (i.e. Allaah)! But how can one know Him and not love Him? How can one hear the caller, but fail to respond? How can one know the profit that shall be gained in dealing with Him, but still prefer others? How can one taste the bitterness of disobeying Him, but still abstain from seeking the pleasure of obeying Him? How can one feel the severity of engaging in trivial speech, but fail to open your Heart with His remembrance? How can one be tortured by being attached to others, but not rush toward the bliss of turning to Him in repentance?

Perhaps it is most surprising to know that while you are in need of Him, you are still reluctant to move toward Him because you seek others.

Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) [Al-Fawaa’id]

The First and Second Standing

04/07/2010 at 23:28 (Gems, Prayer)

“The servant exists between the Hands of Allah at two times- while standing during performing prayer, and while standing on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever fulfills the rights of the first standing, will in fact be facilitating the second one. And whoever considers this easy and does not pay due attention to it, he will be making the other one difficult for himself.”

Ibn al Qayyim – al-Fawaa’id

Reap the Fruits of Your Faith!

04/06/2010 at 21:07 (Gems, Success)

When the heart and the mind resolves to stay firm and succeed, and the body and the mind put in the means and the effort to succeed, and the lips and the heart put their trust and pray to Allah to succeed, a person is successful. But success does not always mean winning this battle; rather even if you fail this one apparently, you will reap the fruits of your faith and hard work in the future. This is a promise from Allah, and Allah never breaks His Promises.

Allah will never disappoint you!…

04/05/2010 at 17:49 (Gems, Trust in Allah)

ما أيقن الإنسان بالله عز وجل فخيّبه الله سبحانه وتعالى

“A person has never held certainty in Allah `azza wa jall only for Allah to disappoint him.” Never will Allah disappoint those with yaqeen (certainty), tawakkul (reliance) and husn al-dhann (good opinion) of Him.

You WILL be tested!

04/01/2010 at 22:40 (Patience and Gratitude, Qur'aan)

وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُم بِشَيْءٍ مِّنَ الْخَوْفِ وَالْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَنفُسِ وَالثَّمَرَاتِ ۗ وَبَشِّرِ الصَّابِرِينَ

And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient,

[Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) 2:155]
