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

If People are Impressed with You

‘Know that if people are impressed with you, in reality they are impressed with the beauty of Allaah’s covering of your sins

Ibn al-Jawzi (rahimahullaah)

When My Lord Asks Me…

روى ابن الجوزي عن أبي حامد الخلفاني أنه قال لأحمد بن حنبل رحمه الله: يا أبا عبد الله هذه القصائد الرقاق التي في ذكر الجنة والنار أي شيء تقول فيها ؟

فقال : مثل أي شيء ؟ فسرد له الرجل تلك الأبيات

وهو يقول : إِذَا مَا قَــال لِـــي رَبِّي أَمَّا اسْتَحْيَيْت تَعْصِيْنِي

“فقال:”أعد علي”قال:فأعدت عليه،فقام ودخل بيته ورد الباب

واصبح له نحيباً من كثرة البكاء.
وقال تلامذته بكى الإمام حتى اصبح لهُ صوتاً
كبكاء الطفل حتى كادَ يهلك من كثرة البكاء.

Poem that made Imaam Ahmad cry

Ibn al-Jawzee mentions in his book that One of the students of Imaam Ahmad asked him: ‘Yaa Abaa 3AbdAllaah, what is your view about these odes (poem) which mention Paradise and Hell?’

He asked, ‘Like what?‘ He said, ‘They say:

When my Lord asks me..
Are you not ashamed to disobey Me?….

He asked him to repeat it & he did it again. Then Ahmad stood up and went into his house and closed the door behind him. The student said, ‘I could hear him from inside the house weeping like a child, it was as though he would die from crying:

This was what recited to him (1)

may Allaah subhaanahu wa ta3aala make my scale heavy with good deeds on the day of Judgement & enter me to Jannah without accounts. aameen

 أَتَيْــت إِلَيْك فَارْحَمْنِــي وَثقــّـل فِي مَوَازِيْنِي

I have come to you (in repentance) – so have mercy on me, and make heavy my scales (with good deeds)

وَخَـفَّف فِي جَزَائِــــي أَنْت أَرَجـى مِن يُجَازِيْنِي

And lighten my account – You are the best of who will bring me to account.

A Talk with the Self

… As If You Were not meant to Expire and be Forgotten?

Imaan Ibn Jawzee Rahimahullaah said:

أيها المقيم على الخطايا والعصيان،التارك لما أمرك الرحمن

المطيع للغويّ الفتان، إلى متى أنت على جرمك مصرّ، ومما يقرّبك إلى مولاك تفرّ؟

تطلب من الدنيا ما لا تدركه، وتتقي من الآخرة ما لا تملكه، لا أنت بما قسم الله من الرزق واثق، ولا أنت بما أمرك به لاحق

يا أخي، الموعظة، والله لا تنفعك، والحوادث لا تردعك. لا الدهر يدعك، ولا داعي الموت يسمعك

كأنك يا مسكين لم تزل حيا موجودا، كأنك لا تعود نسيا مفقودا

“O you who persists on mistakes and wrong doings;

O you who has turned away from what the most Loving and Compassionate commands;

O you who obeys the falsifier of the path and the creator of calamities .

How long are you going to insist on your misbehavior?

How long are you going to keep yourself distant from your Lord?

How long will you seek from this world what you cannot have, and keep away from the other world by that which you cannot possess?

Neither are you sure of what Allaah prepared of sustenance for you, nor are you satisfied with that which He has commanded for you.

O my brother, by Allaah! Admonition does not seem to benefit you!

Afflictions do not seem to threaten you!

Time does not leave you and the call of death does not reach your ears!

As if, you poor man, would live forever and you weren’t meant to expire and be forgotten?”

ibn Jawzee Rahimahullaah’s book, al Bahr ad-dumo’ (the sea of tears),
