Imam Shafi (Rah) said that i wish that my knowledge would be spread. I wish that everyone would benefit from my knowledge no one would say my name. That’s why Allah (swt) made him the person that he was and elevated him to the place that he was because his interest wasn’t spreading that goodness, not in being named the source of that.
When the environment around you gets tough and when people are aggressive with you and abusive of you because usually you stink because other people stink with you when the world stinks you’re more likely to stink too, right? He said (ra) that the foolish one addresses me with words of disgrace but I hate to respond to him in like manner, the more ignorant he proves the more patience I become just like the incense, the more you burn it the more its fragrance is released, subhanAllah.
There’s a saying that you can be much more influential if people are not aware of your influence. Just Like with the mother whose child misses her when she goes away. Oftentimes the good influence is not recognized until that’s that sweet smell, the source of that sweet smell is no longer there.
Do you stink or do you smell good? Do you rub off good on people or do people rub off evil on you?
– Shaykh Omar Suleiman
In this amazing lecture #MuftiMenk mentions how a #babygirl opens the door of #paradise for her #parents with special #blessings. we don’t realize the gifts of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala because human nature is such that we concentrate on those things that we don’t have. This is what happens to #mankind, we tend to concentrate on what we don’t have and this is why we overlook what we actually do have they say you only realize the value of what you had after you lose it. It is a major sin is to become upset at the #gender of the child that you have been bestowed with especially if it is a #female why especially if it is a female because that is expressly mentioned in the Quran.
Mufti Menk Quotes in this lecture “ Prophet Mohammed (Pbuh) made it clear that #daughters are special very clear; he made it very clear that if you get upset when you are informed of the fact that Allah has bestowed you with a #gift of a #child being a female. Then you’ve engaged in a major #sin just by becoming upset, so be careful.
#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
