A good read


Al-Miqdam ibn Ma‘dikarib radhiyallahu anhu heard Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam say, “What you feed yourself is sadaqah (charity) for you. What you feed your child is sadaqah (charity) for you. What you feed your wife is sadaqah (charity) is for you. What you feed your servant is sadaqah (charity) for you.” (Quoted from Adabul Mufrad by Bukhari)

Ponder:
A Shaykh was asked “can u smoke in Jannah?” The Shaykh smiled and responded saying: “yes you can BUT you have to go to hell to light up…”

A دُعاء:
Allahumma  humma inni astaghfiruka lizambi wa astahdika limaraashedi amri wa astajeruka min sharri nafsi wa atoobu elayka fatub alayya innaka anta rabbi!

O اللَّه سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى  I beg Thee for forgiveness for all my sins and a seek guidance and that Thou will reveal unto me the ways of achieving success in my efforts,and I seek refuge in Thee from the mischief of my own self; and I repent before Thee so accept my repentance as Thou art indeed my Rab.

O اللَّه سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى Forgive us all our sins, Guide us, Protect us From All Evil And Harm,  Help us, Unite us, Keep us firm on the swiraatal mustaqeem, and make us  amongst Thy virtuous and obedient servants
«̶ آمين يا رب العالمين   «̶


Food for Thought
Suppose, you are given a key to open a lock. What would happen if the key is damaged or half of it is missing? Would the lock open? No. What if you are trying to insert the key upside down? The lock will still remain closed.
Similarly, salaah is the key to Paradise. In order to open the doors of Paradise, we must make our salaah proper. If our salaah is totally opposite to the ways of Nabie صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ , then it is as if we are trying to put the key upside down. And if we don't have concentration and devotion in salaah, then it is as if we are planning to use a damaged key to open a very secured lock. Finally, if we do not complete our prayers with all the necessary actions, then it is the same as using a key which is missing parts or half broken.


Qataadah bin Da'aamah As-Sadusi relates: "I asked Anas رضي الله عنه ., 'How was the hair of Rasulullah ( صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ )?'.  He replied: 'It was not very twisted, nor very straight.  It had a slight twist and was a bit  curled, and reached till his ear-lobes'". 


The Stinginess of Jealousy
Jealousy is a difficult emotion to understand. Yet each of us—or at least, too many of us—suffer jealousy in some dimension from time to time: it may be a sudden impulse, or it may be a deep-seated feeling that grows within you against an individual. Whatever the case may be, our beloved Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon him) warned us out of sincere concern for our well-being to guard against it, saying, “Beware of jealousy, for indeed jealousy consumes one’s good deeds like fire consumes wood.” [Sunan Abi Dawud] Therefore, it is of great importance to investigate the origins of jealousy in order to help us rid ourselves of this evil.

Conceited will be like Ants
The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The arrogant will be gathered like small ants in the form of men on the Day of Resurrection, overwhelmed by humiliation from all sides.” [Mishkaat al-Masaabeeh]
Small ants are something to which people pay no attention; they step on them without even realizing it.
Arrogance is a major sin according to the laws of Shariah. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) hates conceited people very much. When he resurrects His slaves, He will gather the arrogant in a humiliating form.
Sometimes we put on an appearance of humility while our hearts are filled with conceit and haughtiness. Rid yourself of these false beliefs about yourself before you are humiliated by all of mankind on the Day of Judgement.


May اللَّه سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى grant us true love of " MY BELOVED

النَّبِي محمد صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

and the love to follow every sunnah
