How Do You Feel The Company Of Your Friends! Jealous or Spiritual | Ustad Asim Khan

This is an advice from Allah to the prophet (Pbuh) That hold yourself back and keep it the company of those who are following you now, who are the poor, the needy, the slaves and yeah,

you desire that people, you know, from the upper class, people from the rich and Powerful, the wealthy embrace your message and follow you and they don’t, you know, turn away with their nose and their ear because of the fact that poor people are surrounding, no… From Surat al-kahf, verse 28.

Be the company of those who are sincere. Don’t worry about those people who they are. if you want to be more sincere with Allah, you to find the right company. You need to be in the company of people who remind you about Allah.

Here, think about the people that you spend time with.. When you are in their company or when you leave from their company, how do you feel?

Sometimes people spend their time with somebody else and then they leave feeling jealous; that is not a person who reminds you about Allah.

We should seek out friendship with people when we leave their company or when we’re in their company, they remind us about Allah. They remind us about the things that make us less worldly even if they’re not funny, even if they’re not rich, even if they’re not influential, even if they’re not popular. Why? Because they are giving you something that money cannot buy, and that is increasing you in your sincerity

Five Miracles! Reasons Behind Obsessive Love With Unbelievable Stories For Prophet(ﷺ)

A father, a counselor, a judge, a teacher, a warrior; greatest of all creation to however have set foot on the face of the Earth: These are some of the descriptions of the prophet of Allah, Muhammad (Pbuh).

It’s the likes of this work ethic and Limitless Ocean of sacrifice and endless Seas of compassion and never ending struggle that caused all of humanity rather all of creation to be obsessed with him to love him.

A love that caused Stones to speak, a love that caused tree trunks to weep, love that cause trees to move from their places, love that caused animals to weep upon seeing his radiant face sallallahu alaihi wasallam and finally, this was a love That the humbled lions and caused them to stop in their tracks.

If this was the type of love that animals and stones and insects had had towards him (pbuh, what then about the men and women who saw him (pbuh)…

What type of Love did the human beings have for him, the companions?

A woman from the tribe of Bani Dinar, bn Hisham (ra) narrates,was given the news that her husband had been killed after Uhud And she said what happened to the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? They said to her we are very sorry to tell you that your brother has also been slain. She said what happened to the messenger of Allah (Pbuh)? They said to her, forgive us for giving you this heavy news; On this day Your father has been slain. She said what happened to the messenger of Allah (Pbuh)?

They said,Alhamdulillah, he (Pbuh) is well. She said no, no, point him (pbuh) out. Point him (pbuh) out to me so that I can see him (pbuh) with my own eyes. Can you see him(pbuh)? she looked and then when she saw him(pbuh).

They heard mutter some words to herself. She said, every Calamity in life is small so long as you (pbuh) are okay.

They saw in him (pbuh) a human being who was a perfect embodiment of all of the values that he (pbuh) called towards. He (pbuh) invited them to be good people then they saw in him the best of them all. He (pbuh) commanded them to be brave. And so he (Pbuh) was the bravest of all people. You look at his bravery, You would think that Allah had only sent him (pbuh) to rearrange the armies, to appoint the generals to lead the Warriors, to strengthen the hearts of the soldiers when they were weak.

Al Bara, he would say whenever the intensity of War would become severe, we would hide behind the prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) and the bravest companion would be the one who would be able to stand side by side with him (pbuh) on Battle because he was advancing, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He (Pbuh) didn’t fear death. He (pbuh) commanded them to be generous. They saw in him (pbuh) the most generous of Allah’s creation describing him (pbuh) like the wind that blows and scatters money, spending on people as if he does not fear poverty. He (pbuh) was the king of his wealth. His (pbuh) wealth was not the king of him. his (pbuh) money was not in his heart, His money was beneath his feet.

Money did not manipulate him (pbuh). He (pbuh) manipulated his money where he sourced it from and how he invested it, To use his money as a vehicle to bring him to jannah.

He (Pbuh) was the most generous of all people. You think that Allah had only sent him (pbuh) to spend on the poor and to pay the debts of those in need. He (pbuh) commanded the Muslims to be compassionate and gentle.

You look at him alayhi salatu was Salam and you would think Allah had sent him (pbuh) for no other purpose other than to pass a gentle caring hand over the head of the orphan and to support the Widow, to give encouraging advice to those who are let down, To respond to the invitations of the downtrodden in society, And to eat from their food, even if it was about to go off, he (Pbuh) would not break their hearts and visit those who are handicapped and disabled.

You would think Allah had sent him (pbuh) for no other reason other than to be compassionate and kind. He (Pbuh) commanded his companions to be be worshippers of Allah jalla Jalaluhu. So what did they see in him (pbuh)? A Marvel of a worshipper, A man who would fast continuously, pray at night continuously till Allah Almighty would say to him, Take it easy on yourself.

A man whose feet would grow in size because of swelling and pain whose skin would crack because of continuous praying a man (pbuh) who would soak his beard and the soil beneath him and his clothes from his own tears and his wives would be patting their bed, patting the soil to see where the husband has gone. and their hands would fall on his feet.

As he (pbuh) was bowing and prostrating to Allah jalla jalaluhu in the Masjid, They would say you are in one place and we are in another place.. subhanAllah, A worshipper of Allah. A man (pbuh) who frequently looked into the heavens and frequently looked on to the Earth, He (pbuh) recognized the Grandeur of Allah jalla jalaluhu. This is why you love to him (Pbuh). This is why they loved him (pbuh). This is why we love him (pbuh).

Our messenger sallallahu alehiwassallaam was the finest of them all.

Ask Allah For The Highest! Three Beautiful Stories Of Having High Aspirations | Ustad Asim Khan

One beautiful Hadith from the prophet sallallahu alehiwassallaam, on the topic of high aspirations how the prophet (SAW) spoke from a spiritual perspective:

 

The hadith is found in sahih al-Bukari, the prophet (SAW) says that paradise Is made up of 100 Levels. Between each level There is a distance of the sky and Earth and then he said the highest level in Paradise is called Al Ferdous and he said.. it is beneath the Throne of Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala.

The Hadith ends and the prophet (SAW) says, when you ask Allah, ask Him for Al Ferdous, asking for the highest spot in paradise.

The prophet (SAW) wouldn’t tell us to do something unless it had a benefit, unless it was a realistic thing to do and here he saying, you know what? You should aim high in life. You should aim for the highest spot in paradise. And when you ask Allah don’t ask him for the second best.

If you look at the prophet, they are an embodiment of having high aspirations in both this life and in the Hereafter. So for example, if you look at the prophet Solomon/ Suleiman (A.S), we find a beautiful dua that he makes,

quran image Sad35

Qala rabbi ighfir lee wahab lee mulkan la yanbaghee liahadin min baAAdee innaka anta alwahhabu

(38:35) He said, “My Lord, forgive me and grant me a kingdom such as will not belong to anyone after me. Indeed, You are the Bestower.”

 

When you try to do something great in this world for the sake of Allah, aim high; actually aim to be the highest.

We take inspiration from the Hadith where the prophet (SAW) told us when you ask Allah; ask Him for Al Ferdous, the Highest.

In the same way when you plan for 2021, plan for a great year. Plan to deliver a lot of good deeds, Deeds that will raise your position in the Hereafter. Deeds that will help leave a legacy behind you.

When Allah Revealed Himself On The Mountain! Hashim And Sheikh Mohammed | Speakers Corner

The Christians also asked this question that if Jesus is the word of Allah and Allah says this in the Quran then why are we being condemned for worshiping the word of god which is eternal, which is Jesus.. So, you guys also believe in the Quran which is the word of god?

They have to understand what is the aqidah /creed of the Muslim. and one of the important things; people get confused is that the attribute of allah Azzawajal and the difference between the essence and attributes of Allah Azzawajal, and the action attributes of Allah Azzawajal.

They do not distinguish or do not differentiate is the fact, that the Quran is   is an expression of Allah. Yes, but the Quran is not something which has his own mind or it has its own will, for example, both of which was true in the case of Jesus Christ.

So, we need to distinguish this. The Christians normally ask this question. Why do you condemn us for worshiping and saying that we are committing shirk, when you guys are doing the same thing with the Quran?

A very clear distinction between who Allah is, what His Essence are, which essence of His are Eternal and which essence of His, He will it to happen or manifest those Essence in time as temporal, like when Allah wishes for His Mercy to descend on Earth or on a particular person, Yes, He wills it and this happens in time obviously.

So, we need to clearly distinguish between what is it Eternal in terms of essences and what is temporal in terms of his manifestation of those Essence.

So, anyone who says that the the word of Allah, which is the Quran is Allah in the sense that the Christians they believe that the word of God is God in the sense of Jesus Christ.

So, they are making a false equivalence and incorrect or illogical comparisons. So let’s distinguish between the essence and the attribute; is very very important, the actions as well.

The manifestation of that essence in time, which is action attributes that also we should distinguish.

 

Choosing Spouse In The Light Of Islam | Mufti Menk

Do you know that when we have to choose a spouse;

Who have not yet chosen the spouse and even if you have try and go back and see the qualities that you have looked at and develop on them, develop them…

 

When you choose a spouse, the Hadith says: there are several things that people look at; some people look at wealth, some people look at Beauty, some people look at the status of the person and some people look at the lineage of the person and some people look at the deen and the religion of the person.

The Hadith says become successful by selecting the the one with religion, with character and conduct, coupled with Deen / religion.

From the hadith, when a proposal comes from someone; whom you are satisfied with their level of character and conduct or in fact starting with the level of Deen and character then allow them to get married, allow them to marry.

Two things:  character and deen

If someone comes and they good-looking okay, they have a better deen in them. It is better for you to compromise the looks to a certain extent And make sure that the religion is intact then to go only for looks because the plan of Allah is there will come a stage when that blemish less face will develop wrinkles; If you have loved the outward face, you will not be able to get along with that woman.

Because if you have loved the interior, it only blossoms as time passes. with the wrinkles of the face the wrinkles of the heart disappear.

Have you ever thought of that with the wrinkles of the face, the wrinkles of the heart disappear?

The beauty of Islam is such that from the beginning whether it is the upbringing of the child or how to select a spouse, Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala has laws in place that will help you from the family fragmenting, breaking up.

So, if we follow the rules from the very beginning then we will find that the family unit will not break.
