Abundance For 4 Habits In Ramadan

Abundance For 4 Habits In Ramadan

Shaykh Uthaymeen [رحمه الله] said:

❝Focus on asking Allaah in abundance for four habits in Ramadan, two which are pleasing to Allaah and two which are a necessity.

As for the two which are pleasing to your Lord:

• The first is the Shahada, La ilaha ilallaah

• The second is seeking repentance

As for the two which are a necessity, they are asking Allaah for Paradise and seeking refuge in Allaah from the fire.

Make sure that you focus on supplications.❞

[Ad-Diyya Al-Laamih, (Page: 362) | Translated By Umm Yahya]

Two words that bring divine help!

The word, Wallahul Musta’aan, as mentioned in the Quran, was said by Yaqoob عليه السلام when his sons came up with a false story of what happened to Yousuf عليه السلام. Yaqoob tried his best to find the truth but his sons teamed up to defend their heinous act and lies. Tired of the situation, Yaqoob asked Allah for Sabrun Jameel (beautiful patience) followed by Wallahul Mustaa’an.

According to the commentators of the Quran, Wallahul Musta’an is used to call for Allah’s help when you find yourself in impossible situations, when people team up against you to defend their lies, when people accuse you of something false, when you have given your best and desperately waiting for desired results, when you feel you’re in a situation where there’s no way out. It’s literally saying to Allah that I have given my best and now I am taking a backseat, I want You to take charge of the driving seat and solve this matter with your Divine intervention.

And patience automatically becomes beautiful when, with all your heart, mind, and soul you leave the matter to Allah.

Don’t worry if the situation seems impossible, remember you’re asking the One who just have to say ‘Kun’ — be and it is.

You are asking the One who calls Himself, Al-Fattah — the opener; Who creates a way out when there seems to be no way. So take a backseat and let Allah do the rest.

Wallahul Musta’an – “Allah is the one sought for help”

Three Affairs 

Shaykh bin baz (may Allah have mercy upon him) says: 

With a hardship there are 3 affairs;

• Being patient with it – It’s obligatory

• Being pleased with it – It’s Sunnah

• Being grateful for it – It’s most virtuous/best

‎[مجموع الفتاوى ١٣/٤١٣]

Don’t Abandon Duaa

Don’t abandon duaa. Don’t prevent yourself from making duaa because of what you know of yourself for Allah answered the duaa of Iblees and he’s the worst of creation”. ~ Sufyan bin Ayayna rahimahullah

A Stolen Pound

‘The condition of the one who relies on Allah is like the condition of the one who is given a pound by a King, then it gets stolen from him; so the King says to him: “I have many times as much as that, so don’t worry. When you come to me, I will give you much more than that from my treasures.”

Thus if this person knows the truthfulness of the king’s statement, and trusts him, and knows that his treasures are full of that, then what he missed will not make him sad.’ –

Imam ibn al Qayyim

Allah has Hidden Laylat ul Qadr

“Allāh has hidden Laylat-ul-Qadr from His slaves as a mercy for them so that they may seek it while increasing in good deeds by their prayer, Dhikr, Du’ā and getting closer to the Lord and Allāh has hidden this night so that it may become clear who strives diligently in seeking it as opposed to the one who has taken it lightly out of laziness.”Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen Raḥimahullāh [مجالس شهر رمضان]

Conceal your Secrets with Allah ~ 

 Every blessing has someone who envies it
proportional to its size, and many a time a person had a strong relation with Allah but then when he spoke about this blessing openly he was thus was stripped from it. Therefore, the scholars advise that one should conceal the secrets he has with Allah. (Ibn Taymiyyah)

Treating others well.

waves_crashing_on_rocks-t2

“There is nothing more beneficial for the heart than treating people well and wanting good for them. If you do this, you will gain the love and affection of strangers; you will maintain the companionship and love of friends; and your kindness will extinguish the fire of hatred raging in the breast of your enemy…”

“The person who treats others kindly and thinks well of them, will find that his intention will remain true, he will feel at ease, his heart will be sound and Allah will protect him from evil and calamity.”

Imam ibn al Qayyim (rahimahullah) ~ Madarij al-Salikeen 2/511

Being mindful of Allah in ones Youth

  Whoever is mindful of Allah when he is young and strong, Allah will take care of him when he is old and has become weak, and will bless him with good hearing, eyesight, strength and reasoning. One of the scholars who lived beyond the age of a hundred years and enjoyed good strength and reasoning, jumped up in a lively manner one day and was asked about that. He said: “I kept these physical faculties from sin when I was young and Allah has preserved them for me now that I am old.” 

[Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali in Jami’ al-‘Uloom wa’l-Hukam, 1/186]
