Inspiring words


Recently, I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport as the daughter's departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said:

"I love you and I wish you enough."

The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom." They kissed and the daughter left.
The mother walked over to the window where I sat. Standing there, I could see she wanted and needed to cry.

I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking, "Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?" "Yes, I have," I replied. "Forgive me for asking but why is this a forever good-bye?"

"I am old and she lives so far away. We all have challenges ahead," she said.
When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, "I wish you enough." May I ask what that means?"

She began to smile. "That's a wish that my parents used to say it to everyone." She smiled and said.

"When we said 'I wish you enough' we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them". Then turning toward me, she shared the following, reciting it from memory,

"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye."

Allah IS enough!

She then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person. An hour to appreciate them. A day to love them. And an entire life to forget them.

SUNNAH, (PRACTISES OF MUHAMMAD Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam)
Umar bin Abi Salamah Radiyallahu 'Anhu came to Rasululah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam while food had been served to him. Rasulullah Saliallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam said: "O my Son come near, recite Bismillah, and eat with your right hand from that portion which is in front of you". [TIRMIZI]

Commentary: The Ulama are unanimous that it is Sunnah to recite 'Bismillah'. According to the majority it is Sunnah to eat with the right hand, and some say it is Waajib. The reason being Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam cursed a person who ate with his left hand, subsequently that persons hand became paralysed. This exemplary incident is mentioned in the kitaabs of hadith,that a person was eating with the left hand. Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam advised him to eat with the right hand. He replied: 'I cannot eat with the right hand'. Sayyidina Rasulullah Saliallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam said: 'You will not be able to eat with it in the future also'. After that, his right hand did not reach his mouth. In another narration it is related that Sayyidina RasulIullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam once saw a woman eating with her left hand. 'Sayidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam cursed her, the woman died in a plague. It is stated in Ibn Maajah that Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallailahu 'Alayhi Wasallam said: 'The shaytaan eats with the left hand, therefore do not eat with the left hand'. According to some Ulama, because of this narration, it is Waajib to eat with the right hand. The majority of the Ulama say it is sunnaah. Nevertheless, due to these ahaadith strict importance should be paid to eating with the right hand. Nowadays people do not pay head to this, especially when drinking water (and tea). This disease has spread wildly. Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam has commanded, 'Eat with the right hand and drink with the right hand because the shaytaan eats and drinks with the left hand'. In the same manner according to some Ulama it is Waajib to eat from one's ownside (the food that is before one), but according to the majority it is Sunnah.

Salaah The Connection To Our Lord - Shk Zikrullah Khan

The Salaah, as Shk Zikrullah Khan explained, is a medium to seek forgiveness from Allah Ta’ala for our shortcomings. The Salaah is to implore Allah Ta’ala to reform us. The Salaah is to petition Allah Ta’ala to guide us.

Shk Zikrullah mentioned that Salaah is the Connection to our Rabb, Lord of the Worlds and the Way of our master and leader Muhammad Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam. Why do many Muslims, who, despite testifying that there is None Worthy of Worship but Allah and that Muhammad Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam is the Final Messenger of Allah, still discard Salaah?

Furthermore, Shk Zikrullah mentioned that those who are fortunate enough to pray Salaah, should strive to improve the condition of their Salaah. Rasulullah Sallallahu`Alayhi Wa Sallam, in a Hadith, said to the effect that the worst thief is he who steals in his Salaah. This refers to those of us who do not execute our postures correctly and do not pause adequately between postures. This is part 1 of 2… Listen
