هُوَ اللَّهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوسُ السَّلَامُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيزُ الْجَبَّارُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ ۚ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ ♥ القرآن الكريم 59:23

اتَّبِعُواْ مَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ مِن دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاء
قَلِيلاً مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ
Follow what has been sent down unto you from your Lord, and follow not any protectors, besides Him. Little do you remember!
[Al-A’raaf 7:3]

فاصبر لها..

A poet once said

وإذا اعترتك بلية فاصبر لها
صبر الكريم فإنه بك أعلم
وإذا شكوت إلى إبن آدم إنمة
نشكو الرحمن إلى الذي لا يرحم

And if you are stricken with calamity then remain patient upon it
patiently perservering for indeed Allaah knows best your situation
And if you complain to a child of Aadam then certainly
it is as if we are complaining about the Merciful to those who cannot show mercy

Madaarij as-Saalikeen

…من لا يرحم

عن جرير بن عبد الله رضي الله عنه قال, قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم

من لا يرحم الناس لا يرحمه الله

‘Whoever does not have mercy upon the people then Allaah does not have mercy upon him.’

Collected by Bukhari & Muslim

توكلت في رزقي على الله خالقي *** و أيقنت أن الله لا شك رازقي
و ما يك من رزقي فليس يفوتني *** و لو كان في قاع البحار العوامق
سيأتي به الله العظيم بفضله *** و لو لم يكن مني اللسان بناطقي
ففي أي شيء تذهب النفس حسرة *** و قد قسم الرحمن رزق الخلائق

When it comes to my provisions, I rely upon Allah, my Creator
And I know with certainty that He will no doubt provide for me.
Whatever’s in my due, will not pass me by,
Even if it were to be in the depths of the sea.
Allah the Exalted will bring it forth by His Grace,
Even if I were to remain silent over it.
So, what can a soul feel sorrow over,
When the Most Merciful has set the provisions of the creation?

– Imam ash-Shaafi’ee

“The servant..”

At-Tirmidhee and Ibn Maajah narrated that `Atiyah As-Sa`di said that the Messenger of Allah (sall`Allahu `alayhi wa sallam) said,

«لَا يَبْلُغُ الْعَبْدُ أَنْ يَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُتَّقِينَ حَتَّى يَدَعَ مَالَا بَأْسَ بِهِ حَذَرًا مِمَّا بِهِ بَأْس»

“The servant will not acquire the status of the Muttaqeen until he abandons what is harmless out of fear of falling into that which is harmful.”

[At-Tirmidhee then said, “Hasan Ghareeb.”]

لِنْتَ لَهُمْ

فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ لِنْتَ لَهُمْ ۖ وَلَوْ كُنْتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لَانْفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ ۖ فَاعْفُ عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ

“And by the Mercy of Allâh, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allâh’s) Forgiveness for them,..”

سورة آل عمران:159
