  2. If I were to backbite about anyone, it would be my parents, for they are the most deserving of my good deeds.

  3. How strange it is that when a servant of Allah has a [worldly] problem, he seeks help of Allah, but he never asks Allah to cure his heart before it dies of ignorance, neglect, fulfilling one’s desires and being involved in innovations. Indeed, when the heart dies, he will never feel the significance or impact of his sins.

  5. How are the righteous and pious during times of oppression and trials(fitaan)

    dawud-abdulhameed:

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Allah ta’alaa has said,

    (155. And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the patient)
    156. Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: “Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.”)[Suratul Baqarah]

    From the signs of the patient is that they return their affairs to Allah as mentioned in the noble ayah, they(the patient) say: “to Allah we belong and to him we shall return”. This saying is known as istirja. From this we see that the believers are to have patience in times of adversity.

    Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that: Certain people of the Ansar asked the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) and he gave them; then they again asked him and he gave them until all what he possessed was exhausted. Then the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whatever wealth I have, I will not withhold from you. Whosoever would be chaste and modest; Allah will keep him chaste and modest and whosoever would seek self-sufficiency, Allah will make him self-sufficient; and whosoever would be patient, Allah will give him patience, and no one is granted a gift better and more comprehensive than patience”.
    [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].(quoted from Riyaad us Saliheen)

    Khabbab bin Al-Aratt (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: We complained to the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) regarding the persecution inflicted upon us by the disbelievers while he was lying in the shade of the Ka`bah, having made a pillow of his cloak. We submitted: “Why do you not supplicate for our prevalence (over the opponents)?”. He (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) replied, “Among those people before you, a man would be seized and held in a pit dug for him in the ground and he would be sawed into two halves from his head, and his flesh torn away from his bones with an iron comb; but, in spite of this, he would not wean away from his Faith. By Allah, Allah will bring this matter to its consummation until a rider will travel from San`a’ to Hadramout fearing none except Allah, and except the wolf for his sheep, but you are in too much of a hurry”.
    [Al-Bukhari].

    My brothers and sisters, may Allah bless you, look at this great hadeeth. That during the times when the oppression upon the Muslims(from the mushrikeen) were the heaviest the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلام advised the Muslims with patience and reminded them of the righteous before them who were tested with worse. This is the way of the believers. Not going out, and rioting as the Muslims have fallen into today. It is upon us to have patience and follow the way of As Sabireen was Saliheen.

    May Allah guide us to patience and have mercy on us.

  6. Beneficial reminder to the Students of knowledge: The Comments of Shaykh Saleh al Ash Shaykh upon the Life of Imam Ahmad

    dawud-abdulhameed:

    Bismillah wassalaatu wassalaamu alla rasululahi amma’ ba’d:

    The following are the comments of Shaykh Saleh al Ash Shaykh translated by brother Musa Richardson, upon the life and actions of Imam Ahmad(May Allah have mercy on him). I have brought these firstly as a reminder to myself and to anyone who is serious about seeking Shari’ knowledge. May it move your heart and be influencial to you as it was upon me.

    Shaykh Saleh al Ash Shaykh mentioned: “Imam Ahmad used to sit with his brothers occasionally, and sometimes with his companions and students. He would also mix with the common people as well. They would talk about a number of affairs. But Imam Ahmad would only speak if there was something beneficial to be said. The benefit could be his teaching the people or ordering them with righteousness. They said, “If some affair of knowledge was mentioned, he would talk.”

    I(Dawud Abdul Hameed) say:This has been mentioned by many of the scholars in our time and the past, that one should be balanced in seclusion and mixing with the people in what is good. Therefore in this statement we can see Imam Ahmad was from the great examples in this practice.

    The Shaykh continues: “In reality, this concept has been put to the test. The heart is not able to contain too many things, too many conflicting things inside a person’s character. So it is binding on the student of knowledge to dedicate himself wholeheartedly to knowledge, first and foremost. He must stay away from vain talk and wasting his time. If he contemplates something, then he contemplates over some issue related to knowledge. If he speaks, then he speaks about knowledge. This will cause his life to take the task of seeking knowledge head-on, and it will give him a strong desire to study.

    As a result of this,
    the student’s speech will differ from the speech of other people. Why? That is because the student speaks the language of the people of knowledge. He lives with the Companions and their students. He lives with Maalik, Ash-Shaafi’ee, Ahmad, and Sufyaan. He lives with Al-Bukhaaree and the Imams like Ibn Khuzaymah and Shaykhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah. He lives with the Imams of Islaam. He speaks with their words as he discusses issues with them. He is immersed in their oceans of knowledge.”

    Note: Subhanaa Allah, how great is this speech? Notice the Shaykh mentions the Student “lives” with the Imams, and by this meaning that he Immerses himself in reading and benefiting from their works. Everything he does is concerning knowledge which is why he will differ from the lay people, so much so even his very speaking is different.

    This should be heavy upon us as we must ask ourselves, what are we doing? Do we immerse ourselves in knowledge or do we get tired from reading a page of Quran?

    Ponder this, May Allah bless you, and increase you in good.

  8. Anyone whose heart is attached to the creation, hoping for someone from the creation to help him or provide for him or guide him, then his heart submits to them and to the degree that his heart submits to them, he becomes their slave. This holds true, even if he is outwardly a ruler or guardian over those whom he treats as masters. The wise one looks at realities and not at appearances. So if a man’s heart is attached to his wife, even though that is permissible, his heart remains a prisoner to her and she may rule over him as she pleases - though outwardly he is her master and her husband. In reality, he is her prisoner and her slave, especially if she knows how much he is in need of her and how much he is in love with her and how much he feels she cannot be replaced by anyone else. At that point, she rules over him as the tyrant master rules over his subjugated slave, who cannot escape of go free. Indeed for the heart to be taken as a prisoner is a much greater matter than for the body to be taken as a slave or prisoner. Even a body that is a slave can have in it a serene and peaceful and happy heart. As for the heart that is a slave to other than Allah (the Exalted), then that is true humiliation, imprisonment and slavery.
    – Imam ibn Taymiyyah, radi Allahu anhu
