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

When it rains…

I’ve learned that several people experienced acceptance of their du’as at the times of iqamah and when it rains.

And Then He Responded…

Qur’anic Gem: In the last four verses of Surah al Imran, each verse starts with ‘Rabbana’ (O our Lord) followed by a request, thus each verse is in fact a du’a. What is the result? Directly after these four verses Allah says ‘And their Lord responded to them …’

Persist in your du’a, knowing that Allah will respond to you.

— By Shaykh Ahmed Eesa al Ma’sarawi

The Du`a of Relief

13645177_10208204389165280_3585359329993254656_nThe scholars have said, ‘None distressed makes this du’a except Allah grants him relief:

la ilaha illa anta subhanak, inne kuntu min adh dhalimeen

لا اله إلا أنت سبحانك إني كنت من الظالمين

“There is no deity worthy of worship but You! Glory be to You! Truly I have been one of the wrongdoers.” [Quran – 21: 87]

A Stolen Pound

13659162_10208210245191677_5872946915474398035_n

‘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

‘But we didn’t see…’

sunset-dark-clouds-1

Sa’eed bin Jubayr narrates: Ibn Abbas died while in At-Ta’if. I witnessed his funeral and then a bird came that I had never seen before.
The bird entered the burial site and we looked and waited to see if it would come out, but we didn’t see it come out of the hole. When Ibn Abbas was laid in the ground, we heard this verse being recited at the edge of his grave but we didn’t know who recited it:

يا أيتها النفس المطمئنة ارجعي إلى ربك راضية مرضية فادخلي في عبادي وادخلي جنتي

O satisfied soul, return to your Lord content and with pleasure. Enter among My servants. Enter among My garden.
