Whoever is mindful of Allah when he is young and strong

Ibn Rajab al Hambali (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

“Whoever is mindful of Allah when he is young and strong, Allah will take care of him when he is old and has become weak, and will bless him with good hearing, eyesight, strength and intellect. One of the scholars who lived beyond the age of one hundred years and enjoyed good strength and reasoning jumped up in a lively manner one day, and was asked about that. He said: ‘I kept these physical faculties from sin when i was young, and Allah has preserved them for me now that I am old.’ The opposite also applies. One of the Salaf saw an old man begging from people and said: ‘ This is a weak man who ignored Allah when he was young. So, Allah is ignoring him now that he has grown old.'” 
(Jami’ al-ulum wal Hikam)

The righteous servant is refined through tribulation

Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) said,

“Son of Adam! Do not rejoice at wealth
and do not despair at poverty.
Do not become despondent at the onset of tribulation
and do not rejoice at the onset of ease
for gold is refined through fire
and the righteous servant is refined through tribulation.
You will not attain what you want except by leaving what you desire
and you will not reach what you aspire to except through patience.
Expend all your efforts in carefully fulfilling the duties made obligatory upon you.”

Tafseer of the Qur’an 2012 by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq – ‘From Darkness to Dawn’ – Surah al-Falaq

Do not look except to the sky

“My Brother, walk on and do not look back,
your path has been covered with blood (i.e. struggles),
And do not look here or there,
And do not look except to the sky…
(i.e turn your gaze towards Allah only)”
[Diwan of Sayyid Qutb (rahimullah)]

The History of Sufism and The Life of Junaid Baghdadi

Asslamu alaikum. What is really interesting about this talk is that it was delivered by a Salafi Sheikh, Dr. Muhammad Musa Al-Shareef, who gives a very unbiased view on the history of sufism. The sincere sufis will enjoy this and the Salafis really need to watch it in order to mellow down their somewhat harsh criticism of all tassawuf and sufism. InshaAllah we pray that Allah unifies the hearts of the believers and allows us to overlook petty differences, and realise that Islam is a vast religion, wherein there are many differences of opinions, but of course that should never allow someone to engage in blatant innovation. Basically follow the way of Allah and His Rasul(saw), and the true way of the Salaf, of which Junaid Baghdadi (rah) was one of them.

 

A Cilp of a Jewish Rabbi saying the Future is Islam

This is a very interesting clip. The Jewish Rabbi speaks the truth and affirms and attests to the Prophethood of Rasullulah (peace and blessings be upon him), yet he is still a Jew, (or atleast he was in the clip). May Allah guide him to Islam. Ameen
