The Greatness of a Tear

by Abu Abdullah Ibne Ismail

“The tears that are shed due to the fear of Allah or out of his love are so great that they should be not wasted.

They are so blessed that one should wipe these tears over his face rather then letting them waste away.”

Trust

“Hearts without trust in God have to listen to a lot of advertisements from hell”
Shaykh Nuh Keller, Deenport

Ilm

Ilm is that asset which not only increases one’s knowledge and respect in his community, but it also makes his heart pure and keeps it protected from evils. It also teaches the heart and soul to live according to the commands of Allah Taa’la.

An Evil Glance

Cast an evil glance
Shaytan begins to dance

For an arrow has been shot to the heart
And a darkness has enveloped it

After the glance, the darkness leaves
but the heart is adversly affected

Only the effect of sincere taubah
can return the unblemished heart to
the pure condtion it enjoyed before.

Preparation

This morning was a cold walk accross the park to work.  I made sure that I was prepared by putting on my big coat, woolly hat and gloves before even leaving the house.  So what? 

Well, we are always reminded, either in the quran, ahadith or by others, of the temporary nature of this life in the dunya, yet we still remain ignorant to prepare for when we have to leave this world.  The journey to work/ school etc. for us is only a short one yet we prepare for whatever the weather may be outdoors, but for the permanent abode of the akhirah (hereafter) we choose to cast aside in our mind and ignore the signs telling us to prepare?

I leave you to ponder over this…May Allah Almighty give us the ability to draw some important lessons from above and act in order to prepare for our eternal life in the hereafter, ameen.
