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)

The importance of Tawheed

أهمية التوحيد

The importance of tawheed.

غَافِرِ الذَّنبِ وَقَابِلِ التَّوْبِ شَدِيدِ الْعِقَابِ ذِي

الطَّوْلِ ۖ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۖ إِلَيْهِ الْمَصِيرُ

“The Forgiver of sin, the Acceptor of repentance, the Severe in punishment, the Bestower (of favours), Lā ilāha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), to Him is the final return.”

{Sūratul Ghāfir (40:3)}

قال ابن عباس رضي الله عنه

: غافر الذنب لمن قال لا إله إلا الله، [وقابل التوب ممن قال لا إله إلا الله]. { شَدِيدِ ٱلْعِقَابِ } ، لمن لا يقول لا إله إلا الله

تفسير البغوي

Ibn ‘Abbās said: ” The Forgiver of sin for the one who said Lā ilāha illa Allāh, The Acceptor of repentance for those who said Lā ilāha illa Allāh, Severe in punishment for those who don’t say Lā ilāha illa Allāh.

If His tribulations are so..

إن كان ابتلاء الله شديد فمابالك بعذابه

If the tribulations of Allah can be severe, then what do you think His punishment will be like?

One strike fills the whole grave..

Abdullah ibn Mas’ood, (Radhi Allahu Anhu), related that the Prophet Muhammad (Salla’Allaahu Alayhi wa Salam), said:

“One of Allah’s slaves was ordered to be beaten in his grave one hundred times. He never ceased asking and supplicating until it became one strike, so he was struck once and his grave became filled with fire. When he rose up and regained consciousness he said:

‘What did you strike me for?’ They said:

‘You prayed a prayer without purity and you passed someone that was oppressed without helping him’”

[Reported by at-Tahawi in “Mushkil al-Aathar” and graded Hasan (good) by Shaykh al-Albaani in “As-Silsilah as-Sahihah”, number: 2774, and he said: “All of the narrators are trustworthy.”]

Because of his teaching of the Fatiha

قيل عن أبي منصور الخياط

قال السمعاني : رئي بعد موته ، فقال : غفر الله لي بتعليمي الصبيان الفاتحة

سير أعلام النبلاء

Abu Mansoor al-Khayyat (rahimahullah) was seen in a dream after his death. (He was asked, “What did Allah do to you?”)

He replied, “He forgave me, due to me teaching children Surah al-Fatiha”

Increase your joy

Why Nuh was called so..

عن يزيد الرقاشي قال:

إنما سمي نوحا لأنه كان نواحا

حلية الأولياء

It is said: Nuh Allayhi salam was called so, because he was nuwwaah*

The word نواح in Arabic is someone who constantly weeps and is in a state of mourning.

الله المستعان

Want true dreams…

‏▪️قال الإمام ابن القيم -رحمه الله- :

‏« من أراد أن تصدق رُؤْياهُ :

‏- فلْيتحر الصدق

‏- وأكل الحلال

‏- والمُحافظة على الأمرِ والنهي

‏- ولينم على طهارةٍ كامِلةٍ

‏- مُستقبِل القِبلةِ

‏- ويذكُرُ الله حتى تغلِبهُ عيناهُ

فإن رُؤْياهُ لا تكادُ تكذِبُ البتَّة ».

‏’

‏📝مدارج السالكين (١/٧٦)

Imam al-Qayyim رحمة الله عليه said:

Whoever wants that his dreams are true, then:

Be constant on the truth,

Eat that which is halal,

adhere actively on enjoying the good and forbidding the evil,

sleep while on a state of purity,

facing the qibla,

remember Allah until sleeps overcomes you.

If you do all this, then your dreams will almost never be false.

*I say, doing all this consistently would make one from the saliheen إن شاء الله.

Allah is angered by this one…

من لم يدع الله سبحانه غضب عليه

الترمذي

قال الإمام الشوكاني

دليل على أن الدعاء من العبد لربه من أهم الواجبات، و أعظم المفروضات؛ لأن تجنب ما يغضب الله منه لا خلاف في وجوبه.

تحفة الذاكرين

The person who does not ask from Allah, Allah سبحانه becomes angry with him.” [at Tirmidhi]

Imam al-Shawkani said:

(This hadith) is proof that supplication from the slave to his Lord is from the most important obligations and and greatest duties. Because, avoiding what angers Allah is something there is no disagreement on its obligation.

When does the heart die?

يُحِبُّهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَهُ

He will love and who will love Him

Surah 5:54

A Bedouin asked a shaykh:

When does the heart die?

The shaykh said: With the death of a loved one.

So the Bedouin replied: What if the loved one is ever-living and never dies?

The shaykh said: that is a love that is ever-living in the hearts.

Oh Allah attach our hearts to your love.
