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

Are You Planting the Seeds?

قال أبو بكر البلخي : شهر رجب شهر الزرع ، وشهر شعبان شهر سقي الزرع ، وشهر رمضان شهر حصاد الزرع 

Abu Bakr al-Balkhi said:

“The month of Rajab is the month for planting the seeds; the month of Sha3baan is the month of watering the seeds & the month of Ramadhan is the month of reaping the fruits.

Rajab Shaban Ramadaan

He also said: The likeness of the month of Rajab is that of the wind, the likeness of Sha3baan is that of the clouds and the likeness of Ramadaan is that of the rain; whoever does not plant and sow in Rajab, and does not irrigate in Sha3baan, how can he reap in Ramadaan?

Its Rajab…. are you Planting the seeds of good deeds & 3Ibaadah?

Grief Weakens the Heart…

Bismillah1

Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim said:

يَقول ابن القيم رحمه الله –  الحُزنُ يُضعِفُ القَلب ، ويُوهن العَزم ويَضُر الإرادَة ، ولا شيءَ أحب إلى الشيطان مِن حُزن المؤمن 

“Grief weakens the heart and determination, & hurts the will ; and nothing is more beloved to Shaytan than a sad believer”. (1)

Trials & Calamities Are Medicine

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

Were it not that Allaah treats His slaves with the remedy of trials and calamities, they would transgress and overstep the mark.

When Allaah wills good for His slaves, He gives him the medicine of calamities and trials according to his situation, so as to cure him from all fatal illnesses and diseases, until He purifies and cleanses him, and then makes him qualified for the most honourable position in this world, which is that of being a true slave of Allaah (3uboodiyyah), and for the greatest reward in the Hereafter, which is that of seeing Him and being close to Him.

Ibtilaa’: Tests Are a Medicine

O Afflicted One!

“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]

Complain To Allaah

“Complain about your situation to Allaah and don’t complain about it to His creation. 

Know for certain that all forms of grief or heartache that pass by you are because either He loves you and is therefore testing you, or either He loves you and is therefore purifying you from your sins.”

Shaykh Salih Al-Maghamsi

“O Afflicted One!

Your Lord does not deny you what you want except what is better than that, He does not test you but for your well-being and He does not subject you to tribulations but to purify you. He tries His slaves with pleasure as He blesses them with calamity. Do not therefore waste your time thinking over what has already been guaranteed for you. As long as one is still alive his provision will no doubt come to him”.

Testing, Affliction & Calamities

… 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),

Ibtilaa’: Tests Are a Medicine

Imaam ibn Al Qayyim said:

“The ibtilaa’ (testing) of the believer is like medicine for him. It extracts from him the illnesses. Had the illness remained it would destroy him or diminish his reward and level (in the hereafter). The tests and the trials extract these illnesses from him and prepare him for the perfect reward and the highest of degrees (in the life to come).”

Calamities, trials and tests are signs of love from Allaah for the believers. They are comparable to a cure; although it may be bitter, you accept it because it is from the one whom you love; and to Allaah belongs the best example.

Ibn Al-Qayyim’s Book: “Ighaathatul Lahfan” p. 286.

Keep Yourself Busy In Remembering Your Faults

Imaam Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said:

“‘Keep yourself busy in remembering your faults, so that you have no time to remember the faults of others.

Be sad on account of all the time you spent in the past in other than the pursuit of your Hereafter.

 Cry frequently for the wrongs you have committed in the past, and perhaps you will then be  saved from them.

Never tire or become bored of good deeds and … of the people who perform them.”
