Learn what constitutes kufr

And know that the general public says things which constitute kufr without them knowing that it is such. Hence, it is waajib upon the people of knowledge to make clear to them this so that perhaps they will avoid it when they come to have knowledge of it so that their deeds will not go to waste and they will not abide in the most severe of torments. And the ability to recognize this is a very important matter. This is because the one who does not recognize evil, falls into it while he does not know. And the cause of every evil is ignorance. And the cause of every good is knowledge.

واعلم: أنه يجري على ألسنة العامة جملة من أنواع الكفر من غير أن يعلموا أنها كذلك فيجب على أهل العلم أن يبينوا لهم ذلك لعلهم يجتنبونه إذا علموه لئلا تحبط أعمالهم ويخلدون في أعظم العذاب، وأشد العقاب، ومعرفة ذلك أمر مهم جدا، وذلك لأن من لم يعرف الشر يقع فيه وهو لا يدري، وكل شر سببه الجهل، وكل خير سببه العلم، فهو النور المبين

Do not belittle anyone ever


al-Munaawii says in Faid al-Qadiir volume 5 page 380

It is befitting for a person not to belittle anyone. For how often it is that this person he belittles is more pure of heart, more righteous in deeds, and more sincere in intention. Without a doubt, belittling the slaves of Allaah leads to loss, humiliation, and shame.

Why your life is a miserable wreck

Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah, who said that he heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: "When a man enters his house and remembers Allaah [i.e., says Bismillaah] when he enters and when he eats, the Shaytaan says, ‘You have no place to stay and no dinner.’ If he enters and does not remember Allaah when entering, the Shaytaan says, ‘You have found a place to stay.’ If he does not remember Allaah when he eats, [the Shaytaan] says, 'You have found a place to stay and dinner.'"

[Narrated by Muslim, 2018]


We do all the wrong things, and then we complain that our lives are miserable.

If you enter your house and mention the name of Allaah, the devil does not get to stay in your house.

Now, be honest. Do you really do that?

No, you don't.

When you don't do it, the devil gets to stay in your home. Now, ask yourself this:

Is the devil your friend or your enemy? Does he want you to succeed or fail?

Maybe your memory needs a jolt. Let me remind you. Actually, forget me. Let the Qur'aan remind you

 

"…and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy."

[Qur’aan 2:208]

[Iblees] said, “My Lord, because You have put me in error, I will surely make [disobedience] attractive to them on earth, and I will mislead them all

Except, among them, Your chosen servants."

[Qur’aan 15:39-40]

 

There you have it. You let the devil live in your home because you do not mention the Name of Allaah when you enter it.

What is worse than to let your enemy, who wants your utter destruction, live with you?

You invite your worst enemy into your home.

Then, you complain why your life is a miserable wreck?

Be thankful

Do not deny the favors of Allaah. Be thankful. Let not your fate be like that of those who are ungrateful.

And Allah presents an example: a city which was safe and secure, its provision coming to it in abundance from every location, but it denied the favors of Allah . So Allah made it taste the envelopment of hunger and fear for what they had been doing.

[Qur’aan 16:112]

Abandon fulaan and fulaan

Follow Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

This is what you have been commissioned with.

If you follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa allam), and that leads you to oppose everyone else, so be it.

Do you want Allaah to love you?

Follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

You will be with those you love in Paradise.

Love the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). Love Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him). Love Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him).

Follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

Understand his Sunnah in the light of how his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) understood it.

Stop following fulaan and fulaan.

When a Sunnah is made clear to you, you must abandon the sayings of fulaan and fulaan.

You must only follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

This is the way of a Muslim.
