The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]

Bismillah1حديث أنس أنه صلى الله عليه و سلم قال لجبريل ” ما لي لا أرى ميكائيل يضحك “ فقال : ما ضحك ميكائيل منذ خلقت النار

رواه أحمد وابن أبي الدنيا في كتاب الخائفين من رواية ثابت عن أنس بإسناد جيد ورواه ابن شاهين في السنة من حديث ثابت مرسلا وورد ذلك أيضا في حق إسرافيل . رواه البيهقي في الشعب وفي حق جبريل رواه ابن أبي الدنيا في كتاب الخائفين

On the authority of Anas ibn Maalik radi Allaahu 3Anhu, the Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said to Jibreel 3Alayhi as-salaam:

“Why is it that I have never seen Mikaa’eel laughing?”

Jibreel replied:

“He has not laughed since the Hell-fire was created.” (1)

Al-Albaanee called it Hasan in Silsilatul-Ahaadeeth As-Saheehah (#2511)

Al-Tayyeb Yousef, a trustworthy Sudanese shepherd, whose loyalty and honesty earned him a great respect & reward, after his video clip refusing to sell one of his sponsor’s sheep went viral on social media.

Allaah subhaanhu wa ta3alaa praises His slaves with these  qualities in the Qur’aan:

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِأَمَانَاتِهِمْ وَعَهْدِهِمْ رَاعُونَ

(interpretation of the meanings):

“Those who are faithfully true to their amaanaat (all the duties which Allaah has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts, etc.)   and to their covenants.” [soorah Al-Mu’minoon, verse:8]

 and He said: (interpretation of the meanings)

“And Whoever fears Allaah, He will make for him a way out.

And will provide for him from where he does not expect.”

[soorah At- Talaaq, verse:2-3]

The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said, “Many a person with shaggy and dusty hair, dusty and driven away from doors (because of their poverty and shabby clothes) were to swear by Allaah (that something would happen), Allaah will certainly make it happen.” [Muslim]

 

Yousef was awarded a check worth SR 20,000/- by Al-Hussaini Foundation, in the presence of Shaykh 3Adel Al-Mahalawi, the person who filmed the video clip. Al-Mahalawi is also the Imaam and Lecturer at Al-Sa3egh mosque in Al-Medlej province. Some philanthropists also gave Yousef another check worth the same amount.

Bismillah1Allaah says in the Qu’raan:

مَا يَلْفِظُ مِنْ قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ

(interpretation of the meaning):

“Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].” (1)

عن أبي أمامة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أنا زعيم ببيت في ربض الجنة لمن ترك المراء وإن كان محقا، وببيت في وسط الجنة لمن ترك الكذب وإن كان مازحا، وببيت في أعلى الجنة لمن حسن خلقه وحسنه الألباني

 The Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said: “I guarantee a house in Jannah for one who gives up arguing, even if he is in the right; and I guarantee a home in the middle of Jannah for one who abandons lying even for the sake of fun; and I guarantee a house in the highest part of Jannah for one who has good manners.” (2)

The Prophet SallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa Sallam said:  “Woe to the person who lies in his talking to make people laugh, woe to him, woe to him”. (3)

Shaykh Albaanee was asked: Is there a difference between intentionally lying and jokingly lying? And is it permissible for a person to lie jokingly?

Response: No, it is not permissible.

Question: “(So) all of it is judged (regarded) the same?”

Response: Yes (it is) haraam. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam) only spoke the truth. (4)

3Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Abi Laylaa said: “The companions of the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam told us that they were travelling with the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam. A man among them fell asleep and some of them went and took his arrows.

When the man woke up, he got alarmed (because his arrows were missing) and the people laughed. The Prophet sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said, “What are you laughing at?”

They said, “Nothing, except that we took the arrows and he got alarmed.”

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “It is not permissible for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim.” (5)

“And for you is an Appointed Time”

[3Umar ibn 3Abd al-3Azeez]

خطب عمر بن عبد العزيز
آخر خطبة خطبها فقال فيها

3Umar ibn 3Abd al-3Azeez (rahimahu-Allaah) said in his last khutbah:

[يا أيها الناس]

O people,

إنكم لم تخلقوا عبثاً
ولم تتركوا سدىً

Indeed you have not been created for mere play
Nor will you be left in vain

وإن لكم معاداً
ينزل الله فيه للفصل بين عباده

And for you is an appointed time
Wherein Allaah will descend to judge between his servants

فقد خاب وخسر من خرج من رحمة الله
التي وسعت كل شيء

Truly the failure is he who has left the Mercy of Allaah
which has encompassed all things

و حرم جنة عرضها السماوات والأرض

And who has been forbidden from Paradise,
its width as wide as the heavens and the earth

ألا ترون أنكم في أسلاب هالكين

Don’t you see that you are indeed in a destroyed plunder

وسيرثها بعدكم الباقون

And those after you shall inherit it

كذلك حتى ترد إلى خير الوارثين

Like that it will be, until it is returned to the Best of Inheritors (Allaah)

و في كل يوم تشيعون غادياً ورائحاً إلى الله

And everyday you are going back and forth escorting (someone) to Allaah

قد قضى نحبه
و أنقضى أجله

His term has been settled
And his life is over

أتودعونه و تدعونه في صدع من الأرض
غير موسّد ولا ممهّد

Will you then bid him farewell and call him from the rough and unleveled cracks of the earth?

قد خلع الأسباب
و فارق الأحباب
و سكن التراب
و واجه الحساب

He has left all provisions
And left his beloved ones
He has settled to live among dust
And is due to face the reckoning

غني عما خلف
فقير إلى ما أسلف

He is free from what he has left behind
And in dire need of what he has put forth

فاتقوا الله عباد الله
قبل نزول الموت و انقضاء مواقيته

So fear Allaah O servants of Allaah
Before the descent of death and the coming of his time

و إني لأقول لكم هذه المقالة
وما أعلم عند أحد من الذنوب مما أعلم عندي

Indeed, I say this to you
But none knows as much as I do of the sins (I have) earned

ولكني
استغفر الله و أتوب إليه

But I seek the forgiveness of Allaah and repent to Him

ثم رفع طرف ردائه و شهق
ثم نزل فما عاد إلى المنبر حتى مات

رحمة الله عليه

He then lifted the ends of his cloak and weeped.
Then he got down and did not return to the minbar until he passed away.

May the Mercy of Allaah be upon him. Aameen

A heart moving bitter  reality that majority of us are forgetful about… by shaykh Salah 3Anad Al-3Enizee.

A tour inside the place where you’ll be washed. A must watch for all

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ۗ وَإِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوْنَ أُجُورَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۖ فَمَن زُحْزِحَ عَنِ النَّارِ وَأُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ فَقَدْ فَازَ ۗ وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ

“Everyone shall taste the death. And only on the day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted into Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of Deception (a deceiving thing)”. [soorah Aal-e-3Imraan, v:185]

May Allaah grant us all a good ending… Ameen.

Winter Reminders

bismillah (2)“Indeed, winter is the spring of the believer because during it he enjoys himself in the gardens of obedience to (Allaah) and wanders in the fields of worship, and his heart strolls along in devotion to the acts of worship facilitated within it, just like the animals revel in the pastures of spring; so they put on weight and (the state of) their bodies improve.

Likewise, during winter the believer’s religion is improved through what Allaah has made easy of acts of obedience; for indeed the believer is able to fast the days of winter without difficulty or being troubled by hunger and thirst because its days of fasting are short and cold, and the difficulty in fasting is unnoticed. And it has been reported in Tirmidhee from the Prophet SallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam who said:

“Fasting in winter is an (easily acquired) booty.” (1)
