This will make them happy..

إِنَّكُمْ لَنْ تَسَعُوا النَّاسَ بِأَمْوَالِكُمْ، وَلَكِنْ يَسَعُهُمْ مِنْكُمْ بَسْطُ الْوَجْهِ وَحُسْنُ الْخُلُقِ

أخرجه البزار

The Prophet peace be upon him said ‘You cannot make people happy with your wealth, but you can make them happy with you by means of a cheerful face and good attitude’

(Narrated by Abu Hurayrah collected by Al-Bazzar)

I wouldn’t exchange my night for his…

قال سعيد بن عامر : قال ابن المنكدر . بات أخي عمر يصلي ، وبت أغمز قدم أمي ، وما أحب أن ليلتي بليلته

سير أعلام النبلاء

The great Imam Muhammad bin al-Munkadir رحمة الله عليه said:

“My brother Umar spent the night in prayer and I spent the night massaging my mother’s feet, and I would not like that I have his night for mine.”

If the stomach is full…

جاء في بعض الآثار:

إذا امتلأت المعدة نامت الفكرة و خرست الحكمة و قعدت الأعضاء عن العبادة

It is said regarding the dangers of overeating:

If the stomach is full, ones ability to think is put to sleep and his ability to act wisely is muted. And his limbs become unable to perform acts of worship.

*I say: it’s not only over eating but wasteful eating. Consuming useless junk food and extremely sugary food can also cause physical and perhaps spiritual damage.

5 types of hands

اليد العليا خير من اليد السُّفلى، فالعليا هي المنفقة، والسفلى هي السائلة))

صحيح البخاري

، وقد استخلص صاحب “الفتح” من صحيح الآثار أنَّ الأيديَ خمسٌ: أعلاها المنفقةُ، ثمَّ المُتَعفِّفةُ عن الأخذ، ثمَّ الآخذة بغير سؤال، وأسفلها السَّائلة، والمانعة

Rasool صلى الله عليه و سلم said:

The upper hand is better than the lower hand. The upper hand is that of the giver and the lower (hand) is that of the beggar.”

Al-Bukhari

Ibn hajar extracted that there are five types of hands: ( metaphorically speaking)

1. The highest being the one who spends on others.

2. The one who suffices himself from asking from others.

3. The one who takes without asking.

4. The one who asks (when taking).

5. And finally the one who prevents (from giving and others from giving.)

Youth is a flame

إن الشباب شعلة فأقضي بها أمرا فإن الدهر مطفيها

Youth is a flame; so make proper use of it, for verily time will extinguish it .

One’s home gets bigger…

Abu Huraira said:

إن البيت ليتسع على أهله، وتحضره الملائكة، وتهجره الشياطين، ويكثر خيره؛ إن يقرأ فيه القرآن. وإن البيت ليضيق على أهله، وتهجره الملائكة وتحضره الشياطين، ويقل خيره؛ إن لا يقرأ فيه القرآن

“One’s home gets bigger for its family, becomes inhabited by angels, deserted from the devils and fills with goodness when Qur’an is recited within it. Similarly, one’s home gets tighter for its family, becomes deserted from the angels, inhabited by the devils and decreases in goodness when Qur’an isn’t recited within it.”

(Narrated by Ad-Daarimi)
