Breaking the natural order..

He used to search out the time in which the prayer was accepted..

عَنِ ابْن طاووس ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ :

‏أَنَّهُ كان يَتَحَرَّى السَّاعَةَ الَّتِي يُسْتَجَابُ فِيهَا الدُّعاءُ

‏مِنْ يوم الْجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ الْعَصْر

‏قال ابْنُ طَاووسٍ:

‏وماتَ أَبِي فِي ساعَةٍ كَانَ يُحِبُّهَا،

‏ماتَ يومَ الْجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ الْعَصْرِ

‏[ مصنف عبد الرزاق ٥٥٧٤ ]

Ibn Tawoos رحمة الله عليه said about his father:

He used to actively search out the hour in which prayers are answered from the day of Friday after ‘asr (which is one hour before maghreb).

Ibn Tawoos then said:

My father died in that same hour that he loved (to search out). He died on a Friday after ‘asr.

The greatest open door…

قال ابن القيم رحمه الله :

‏.

‏الذكر هو باب الله الأعظم المفتوح بينه وبين عبده مالم يغلقه العبد بغفلته

‏.

‏- مدارج السالكين

Ibn al-Qayyim رحمة الله عليه said:

Dhikr is the greatest open door (of opportunity to draw close to Allah) between Him سبحانه و تعالى and His slave, as long as the slave does not close it with his negligence.

Karabala between reality and myths

Then what of those who short change in regards to their religion…

قال ابن رجب رحمه الله :

‏.

‏إذا كان الويل لمن طفف مكيال الدنيا

‏فكيف حال من طفف مكيال الدين

‏.

‏- لطائف المعارف

If وَيْل (valley in jahanam) is the punishment for those those who short change with regards to matters of the worldly affair. Then what will be the condition of those who short change with regards to their religion (Salah, zakah, etc.)

If it is not washed…

‏قال ابن الجوزي رحمه الله :

‏.

‏وقوع الذنب على القلب كوقوع الدهن على الثوب ، إن لم تعجل غسله وإلا انبسط

‏.

‏- المدهش

Ibn al-Jawzi رحمة الله عليه said:

Sinning on the heart is like the dropping of grease onto clothes. If it is not washed (with istighfar and righteous actions) it will spread.

The most grateful people to Allah..

عَنْ أُسَامَةَ بْنِ زَيْدٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَشْكَرُ النَّاسِ لِلَّهِ أَشْكَرُهُمْ لِلنَّاسِ

المعجم الكبير للطبراني

Usamah ibn Zaid reported: The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “The most grateful people to Allah are those who are most grateful to people.”

al-Mu’jam al-Kabīr

قال بعض العارفين: لو علم الشيطان أن طريقاً توصل إلى الله أفضل من الشكر لوقف فيها ألا تراه قال: { ثم لآتينهم من بين أيديهم ومن خلفهم وعن أيمانهم وعن شمائلهم ولا تجد أكثرهم شاكرين } [الأعراف:17] ولم يقل لا تجد أكثرهم صابرين أو نحوه

It has been said:

If shaytan knew a path that leads to Allah better than being grateful he would attempt to prevent people from taking that. Look to what he said: Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful [to You].”

Surah al-A’raf.

And he (shaytan) did not say; that you will not find most of them patient or something like that.

It should be purely for His sake..

‎‏”إنما نطعمكم لوجه الله لا نريد منكم جزاءً ولا شكوراً”

‎‏قال ابن تيمية:

‎‏من طلب من الفقراء الدعاء أو الثناء خرج من هذه الآية .

‎‏الفتاوى ١١١/١١

saying, ‘We feed you for the sake of God alone: We seek neither recompense nor thanks from you.

Surah al-Insan ayah: 9

Ibn Taymiyyah رحمة الله عليه said:

Whoever requests from the poor to make dua for them or (seeks some sort of) praise is not included in this (ayah.)

What you get for resisting the USA…

Know that is leading to his destruction..

عن عقبة بن عامر – رضي الله عنه – أن النبي – صلى الله عليه

وسلم – قال:

إذا رأيتَ اللهَ يُعطِي العبدَ من الدنيا على معاصيه مايحب

فإنما هو استدراجٌ

ثم تلا رسول الله صل الله عليه وسلم قوله تعالى

{فَلَمَّا نَسُواْ مَا ذُكِّرُواْ بِهِ فَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ أَبْوَابَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ حَتَّى إِذَا فَرِحُواْ بِمَا أُوتُواْ أَخَذْنَاهُم بَغْتَةً فَإِذَا هُم مُّبْلِسُونَ ))[الأنعام: 44،

رواه الإمام احمد وصححه الألباني فى الصحيحة

The Messenger of Allāh [ﷺ] said:

‎⠀

‎”If you notice that Allāh continues to bless an individual with that which he loves of this world, while that person persists to indulge in sin, know that this is leading to his destruction.”

Then he صلى الله عليه و سلم recited the ayah:

Thereafter, when they forgot the advice they were given. We opened for them doors of everything, so that when they became proud of what they were given , We seized them suddenly and they were left in despair.

Surah al-An’am: 44
