by Saalih Aal Ash-Shaykh

O Believers in Allaah and His messenger! Fear Allaah and glorify Him as He deserves to be. Know that this life is nothing except a very short period of time, so act righteously herein. He who does so will have a great and pleasant consequence by the mercy and favour of Allaah and he who is neither conscious nor fearful of Allaah will not have a way out of his hardships and will have an evil end.

Servants of Allaah! Abu Hurayrah, May Allaah be pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said: “No contagion, no pessimism, no Haammah and no Safar” (Bukhaari). The meaning of this Hadeeth is as follows: Haammah is a type of bird; the pre-Islamic Arabs used to think that whenever this bird landed on anyone’s house, somebody who lived in that house would definitely die. This is of course a type of superstition. As for Safar, this is another type of superstition; one group of Islamic scholars held the view that the pre-Islamic Arabs were highly superstitious regarding the month of Safar while another group held the view that Safar is in fact a worm which used to dwell in the bodies of some animals (as a disease) and that this disease was contagious. read more

DUA (prayer)

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) was such that if he newly acquired clothing he would name it by its name: either the shirt, or turban, then, he would say: "Allãhumma laka 'Al-hamdu 'anta kasawtaneehi 'as'aluka min khayrihi wa khayra mã suni`a, wa 'a`outhu bika min sharrihi wa sharri mã suni`a lahu."

"O my 'ilãh to You is all praise, You have clothed it upon me. I ask You the good of it, and the good it was made for; and I seek refuge in You from the evil of it, and the evil it was made for."

~ Abu Dãwood ~

3 drunk guys entered a taxi. The taxi driver knew that they were drunk so he started the engine & turned it off again. Then said, "We have reached your destination". The 1st guy gave him money & the 2nd guy said "Thank you". The 3rd guy slapped the driver. The driver was shocked thinking the 3rd drunk knew what he did. But then he asked "What was that for?". The 3rd guy replied, "Control your speed next time, you nearly killed us!"
