Treasuring time

Being young and full of energy is a blessing from Allah SWT. In this there is a sign for us, as we are young only once with full vivacity as old age will certainly crop us. In a hadith, it is reported by Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam):

'Take benefit of five before five: your youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your wealth before your poverty, your free time before you are preoccupied and your life before your death.' Sahih - Narrated by Ibn Abbas & collected in al-Haakim & others. (Authenticated by Shaykh 'Ali ibn 'Abdul Hamid in Forty Hadith of the Call and the Caller).

In another hadith, Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said:

“There are seven whom Allah will shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic; a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah's sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says: 'I fear Allah', a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.”

(Narrated by Abu Hurairah & collected in Sahih al-Bukhari (english trans.) vol.1, p.356, no.629 & Sahih Muslim english trans.) vol.2, p.493, no.2248)

Nevertheless, years are passing by and we are getting older day by day. While going to bed every night we have no certitude of waking up the next day. But Alhamdullilah, Allah is offering us the opportunity of a new tomorrow to be a better Muslim. He is giving us the opportunity by keeping us alive to humble ourselves deeply in front of Him by doing more 'Ibadaat and Dhikr, to follow His orders and the Sunnah of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam; to prepare way more for our Akhirah and detach ourselves from this Dunya, and to sit down and contemplate all the favors He has bestowed on us and be grateful to Him but yet we turn a blind eye. read more

Noble Qualities of the Final Prophet SAW - His Forbearance - Part 1 of 2

In this amazing series, Ml Dawood Seedat brings alive the beautiful and extraordinary qualities of our master and leader, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam. In this podcast, Moulana discussed the forbearance, the tolerance of Rasulullah Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam.

Moulana explained the definition of forbearance; a person abstains from enforcing what is due to him. This, so aptly, describes this remarkable and rare quality of the final Messenger of Allah Ta`ala, Muhammad Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam. He was forbearing, tolerant, patient, moderate and very lenient.

Whether the Muslims were a small minority or whether it was during the glory days of Madinah or the Conquest of Makkah, Muhammad Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam never took revenge upon those who harmed him personally. However, when the Deen of Allah was threatened or when the Laws of Allah were flouted, he, Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam, reacted.

By way of example, Moulana cited the incident of a Jewish lady who would litter the footpath of Muhammad Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam and would often throw thorns or sharp objects. Rather than taking revenge, Muhammad Sallallahu’Alayhi Wa Sallam visited her when she fell ill…

Try Your Best

When you know you are trying your best,
When to please your Maker you never rest.

Then excuse those who do not see the light,
In what you stand for and constantly fight.

Those who unjustly try to serve a punch,
The Almighty Alone protects from that bunch.

Those who say a lot but know you not,
Should be ashamed of what they've now got.

Waste not your time straightening their line,
Rather draw a perfect one & you'll be fine.

But correct yourself if they are indeed right,
For that is righteousness in His Sight!

A man went to see his doctor because he was suffering from a miserable cold. His doctor prescribed some pills, but they didn’t help.

On his next visit the doctor gave him a shot, but that didn’t do any good.

On his third visit the doctor told the man, “Go home and take a hot bath. As soon as you finish bathing throw open all the windows and stand in the draft.”

“But doc,” protested the patient, “if I do that, I’ll get pneumonia.”

“I know,” said the doctor, “I can cure pneumonia.”
