Love the Qur’aan


Be honest to yourself. Do you feel that love and delight when you think about the Qur'aan?

 

Do you want to spend hours listening to it?

 

Do you want to spend your entire day with the Qur'aan?

 

Do not lie to yourself.

 

If you do not, then raise your hands, and with tears in your eyes, beg Allaah to bestow this love in your heart for your success rests upon it.

Alone

[It will be said to them], "And you have certainly come to Us alone as We created you the first time, and you have left whatever We bestowed upon you behind you. And We do not see with you your 'intercessors' which you claimed that they were among you associates [of Allah ]. It has [all] been severed between you, and lost from you is what you used to claim."

[Qur’aan 6:94]

 

And all of them are coming to Him on the Day of Resurrection alone.

[Qur’aan 6:94]

25 Mar

Make dua but do not be a transgressor

Call upon your Lord in humility and privately; indeed, He does not like transgressors.

[Qur’aan 7:55]

 

To be a transgressor includes asking for things which are not allowed such as that Allaah give you the rank of the Prophets or help you in acts of kufr.

 

Additionally, one needs to keep the following narration in mind when making dua.

 

 

Narrated Abdullah ibn Mughaffal:

Abdullah heard his son praying to Allah: O Allah, I ask Thee a white palace on the right of Paradise when I enter it. He said: O my son, ask Allah for Paradise and seek refuge in Him from Hell-Fire, for I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) say: In this community there will be some people who will exceed the limits in purification as well as in supplication.

[Sunan Abi Dawud 96]

 

 

Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari:

We were in the company of Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) (during Hajj). Whenever we went up a high place we used to say: "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and Allah is Greater," and our voices used to rise, so the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "O people! Be merciful to yourselves (i.e. don't raise your voice), for you are not calling a deaf or an absent one, but One Who is with you, no doubt He is All-Hearer, ever Near (to all things).

[Sahih al-Bukhari 2992]

 

24 Mar

The mercy of your Lord is better

But the mercy of your Lord is better than whatever they accumulate.

[Qur’aan 43: Portion of Verse 32]

 

 

There is nothing comparable to the Mercy of Allaah.

 

 

Do you need see that we will not enter Paradise because of our deeds until Allaah wraps you in His Mercy?

 

 

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying:

There is none amongst you whose deeds alone would attain salvation for him. They (the Companions) said: Allah's Messenger, not even you? He (the Holy Prophet) said: Not even I, but that Allah wraps me in Mercy and He grants me pardon. Ibn 'Aun pointed towards his head with his hand saying: Not even I, but that Allah wraps me in His Forgiveness and Mercy.

[Sahih Muslim Hadith No. 2816]

 

 

The Salaf would say:

The Mercy of Allaah comes no faster than to the one who listens to the Qur'aan.

 

12 Mar

Your reward is only with Allaah

"…My payment is only from Allah…"

[Surah Saba Portion of Verse 47]


Every time you do a deed remind yourself of the above and do not expect a reward from anyone.

Your reward is with Allaah.
