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]

If You don’t find me In Jannah… then Ask About me…

إن أهل الجنة إذا دخلوا الجنة ، ولم يجدوا أصحابهم الذين كانوا معهم على خير في الدنيا ، فإنهم يسألون عنهم رب العزة ويقولون : ” يارب لنا إخوان كانوا يصلون معنا و يصومون معنا لم نرهم 
فيقول الله جل وعلا : اذهبوا للنار وأخرجوا من كان في قلبه مثقال ذرة من إيمان

وقال الحسن البصري  رحمه الله – :  استكثروا من الأصدقاء المؤمنين ، فإن لهم شفاعة يوم القيامة

وإذا رأى الكفار ذلك قالوا(فما لنا من شافعين ولا صديق حميم
الصديق الوفي : هو من يمشي بك إلى الجنة

قال ابن الجوزي رحمه الله : إن لم تجدوني في الجنة بينكم ، فاسألوا عني فقولوا : ياربنا عبدك فلان كان يذكرنا بك !!! ثم بكى رحمه الله رحمة واسعة

وأنا أسألكم إن لم تجدوني بينكم في الجنة ، فاسألوا عني ، لعلي ذكرتكم بالله ولو لمرة واحدة
اللهم نسألك رفقة خيرٍ تعيننا على طاعتك
من درر اﻹمام الشافعي رحمه الله

Surely the people of Jannah when they enter Jannah and they don’t find those companions of theirs who were with them upon good in this world, then verily they will ask Allaah 3Azza wa Jall and they will say: “O Rabb we have brothers who used to pray salaah and fast with us, we do not see them!”

Allaah, jalla wa 3Alaa, will say “Go to the fire and take out any person who had even an atoms amount of Eemaan in their heart!”. (2)

And Hassan Basree (may Allaah have mercy on him) said  “Have lots of believing friends because they will be able to intercede for you on the day of qiyaamah”.

& when the disbeliever will see that, they will say {So now we have no intercessors, And not a devoted friend} (soorah Al-shu3araa)

The loyal friend is one; who walks you to Jannah.

Ibnul Jawzi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

“If you don’t find me with you in Jannah then ask about me, so you should say ‘O our Rabb! your slave so-and-so used to remind us about you’!! then he started weeping.

And I ask you… If you don’t find me in Jannah then ask about me, because I reminded you of Allaah even if it was only for one moment.

“Oh Allaah, we ask you for good friends those who will help us in your obedience.” Aameen

Beautiful Advice from Hasan Al-Basree

Hasan Al-Basree advised some of his students admonishing them about avoiding the state of being proud.

He said:

1) Do not deceive yourself into becoming too proud because you are in a good or righteous environment, for there is no place that is better than Paradise, and our father, Aadam 3alayhi salaam, experienced there what is known to all.

2) Do not become proud merely because you worship often, for consider what happened to Iblees after he spent a great deal of time worshipping.

3) Do not think yourself great because you have met with righteous people, for there is no man more righteous than the Prophet sallAllaahu 3alayhi wa sallam, yet the disbelievers and hypocrites did not benefit by simply knowing him”.

Keep Yourself Busy In Remembering Your Faults

“O people! I am a new day…”

“Every day the sun rises it calls upon us:

“O people! I am a new day;

I am an observer of your actions.

Take advantage of me for I will not return until the Day of Judgment.

O son of Adam, you are nothing but a few breaths.

Once one breath goes out, part of you goes with it.

In the same way that part of you has gone, soon all of you will go.

[Hasan al-Basri]

‘O People, Prepare for Departure!’

‘O People, Prepare for Departure!’

‘O People, Prepare for Departure!’


Habib al-3Abid reports: Once, when I arrived in al-Basrah, I was surprised to see that the markets were closed, and the streets empty.

I called out, “O people of Basrah, is this some kind of holiday of yours that I am unaware of?”

Someone answered, “No, but al-Hasan al-Basri is in the main gathering place (of basrah), giving a khutbah to the people.”

I hurried to his gathering, and when I arrived there, I saw him sitting down on some high ground .

He was saying:

“O people, prepare for departure, for very little time remains from this world.

Prepare to move (to the aakhirah), for there is no way to stay here.

Do you not know that you will soon be surrendered to the place of trial?

Do you not know that each one of you will soon be alone with his deeds and that you will be presented (with your deeds) to Allaah on the day of judgment?

He forbade you from sinning, but you have not stopped sinning.

He (threatened) you with the hell-fire, but you are neither afraid nor terrified of it.

He has encouraged you to seek our Jannah, but you do not (seem to) desire it or long for it.

Your white hairs are warning you of approaching death, so what are you waiting for?

O white-haired one, you are able to perform good deeds , so what is your excuse?

O one who obeys his mouth and his desires, who wastes his share of the aakhirah by taking his entire share in this world, who persists in committing sins and evil deeds , if only I knew : what your excuse will be before Him?

What argument will you put forth when you go to Him?

You are lost and misguided, so ask Allaah, the All-Mighty, to forgive both me and you.”

(al-Mawa3idh wal-Majalis’ , pg 181)
