#Materialism is taking over very fast. People really are following the latest of everything. we are drowning with that; cut it, that’s a sign of the anger of Allah .if that wealth came with the #arrogance of karun, it is a punishment and if it came with the obedience of Suleiman (as) it is actually the mercy of Allah. Be happy with what Allah has given you.
“Don’t rush behind that when you get too attached to something and it is coming between you and Allah and your heart is beginning to love it so much that it’s now getting between you and Allah , cut it. – #MuftiMenk
Fame is not a virtue in Islam
Many a times, we judge people by certain societal criteria and external factors, but is this really the most accurate way of judging people? Let’s see by recalling this hadith.
Narrated Sahl bin Sa`d As-Sa`id:
A man passed by Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and the Prophet (ﷺ) asked a man sitting beside him, “What is your opinion about this (passer-by)?” He replied, “This (passer-by) is from the noble class of people. By Allah, if he should ask for a lady’s hand in marriage, he ought to be given her in marriage, and if he intercedes for somebody, his intercession will be accepted. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) kept quiet, and then another man passed by and Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) asked the same man (his companion) again, “What is your opinion about this (second) one?” He said, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! This person is one of the poor Muslims. If he should ask a lady’s hand in marriage, no-one will accept him, and if he intercedes for somebody, no one will accept his intercession, and if he talks, no-one will listen to his talk.” Then Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “This (poor man) is better than such a large number of the first type (i.e. rich men) as to fill the earth.” [ Sahih A Bukhari]
Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah loves a servant who is righteous, independent, and obscure.”

Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Muslim
A way of earning the pleasure of the almighty is to go back to the one who actually pleased him. It was none other than the prophet Muhammad peace be upon If you would like to please Allah, go and look at how Muhammad peace be upon Him pleased Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala.
Allah Is in control. Remember take all the precautions, lay your trust in Allah, do that which is pleasing to Allah. Try your best to stay away from that which is displeasing to Allah.
Don’t concoct things and think I’m going to please Allah if I were to do it this way or that way simply go back to what the prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him taught and follow it.
Don’t ask Allah to answer the prayer the way that you want it to be answered but ask Allah to answer the prayer and the way that He knows is best.
Perfect supplication is when you ask Allah for the best, for the highest in your perception. and then you are satisfied with His response as the best no matter how He gives it to you.
Don’t just ask Allah to stop the bleeding, ask Allah to increase the reward and ask Allah to give you a better replacement and that’s part of expecting well of your Creator, when you ask of Him.
Don’t concern yourself with how the answer comes but know that the One you are asking is fully capable and knows what He’s doing.
The prophet (saw) said to be moderate and sincere and strive for Perfection, but be gradual in our pursuit of Allah and he said (saw) to focus on remembering Allah. Haste being in a hurry in a way that Allah does not like being Hasty in salah. Be worried about 5G, Fajr Zuhr, Asr, Maghrib & Ishā, that’s you are supposed to be worried about right?
Patience in Times of hardship is the ability to still stay focused keep things in perspective and remain grateful, but it’s not, you know a person knows or doesn’t approach Allah subhana Tada in the interest of that reward and think that the only way to attain that reward is to suffer.
Don’t think that Allah can’t give you the reward of suffering without you actually suffering, Allah does not need the suffering in order to give you the reward right?
Don’t ask Allah for the punishment or don’t ask Allah for the trial, ask Allah for the reward without the trial. if the trial comes then Allah will give you a reward upon reward in sha Allah
The beautiful incident there, the nature of that incident and how these people went above and beyond; To show good character and to demonstrate excellence and compassion and sometimes that means being sensitive to the person you’re speaking to and the person that’s in front of you and making sure that you don’t embarrass them. You don’t humiliate them and you even try to play off a situation where they’re embarrassed or humiliated
Hatim al asam (rah) that he was so concerned with hurting the feelings of that woman or letting that woman be embarrassed that he immediately went above and beyond to make sure that she did she wasn’t even heard in that embarrassing moment of hers.
He showed excellence and so he wasn’t just an excellent worshiper, but he was excellent in his character.
Help others in their time of desperation
When there is a desperate need for the Charities, do not delay that charity to the month of Ramadan, especially when the Month of Ramadan is a month away few weeks away. And the desperation is current; Allah will reward you for having given that charity as though it was given in the month of Ramadan.
o son of Adam o human being spend and it shall be spent on you, help others and you will be helped, be merciful upon others and the Lord will be merciful on you and so on.
