Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa baraktuhu!
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Brothers - make a habit of offering Salah at the masjid. Don't wait for six strong men to take you to the masjid for the first time at your Janazah.
Sisters - wear hijab and cover yourselves. Don't wait for your funeral shroud to be the first time your whole body is covered.
If I have been guided by Allah to make dua, then I know that the response will come with it.
(Umar ibn Khattab ra)
Our greatest glory is not in never falling but rising every time we fall.
Allah only puts us into a clouded state of mind in order for us to see the light. He is waiting for that cry, not the cry of words but the silent cry that finally understands, and says, "Allah, it is only You that can help me".
Everyone will pass through times of sleep and neglect following his lusts but do not sink into sleep as the morning of the Hereafter is close at hand.
(Ibn Qayyim ra)
If you take a child and you throw the child up, there's a point where they go into this state of complete panic. And then, when they come back into your arms, they are laughing. That is this world, I guarantee you. That moment, that is our life. We came from Allah, and we're going back to Allah. And there is just a moment where we are in a complete state of panic. But just relax, we're in good hands.
(Shaykh Hamza Yusuf)
Have a blessed week, inshallah.
