“The one who oppresses himself the most is: The one who humbles himself for one who does not honour him; and strives in the friendship of one who does not benefit him; and accepts praise from one who does not know him.”
— Imaam Ash-Shafi’i
"Patience doesn’t mean just waiting
patience means accepting Allaah’s decree with knowledge that He will only give you the best
patience is not complaining about the way something is going; rather, it’s being thankful it’s not any worse
patience is acceptance, contentment and trust in Allaah swt"
Who was the companion of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) during his youth? Who was the first among his companions to embrace Islaam? Who was the one who gave legal opinion in his presence and was the fastest to answer? Who was the first to perform prayer with him? Who was the last to lead him in performing prayer? Who was the next after him to die and be laid next to him? The answer to these questions is Aboo Bakr. He was very understanding and attentive during the days of apostasy and obtained legal opinion from the Qur’an and Sunnah.
He protected the Messenger with everything at his disposal. He accompanied the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) during his life and death. How could anyone deny his virtues? To do so would be to try to cover the sun in the middle of the day. He is the best among the Companions, and whoever loves him is a believer.
Ibn al-Qayyim [Al-Fawa’id pg.114]
Ibn Mas’ud –(radiyallaahu ‘anhu) – would advise his students, “If your intention is one of these three, do not seek knowledge: To shame the ignorant, or to argue with the ***ahaa’ (scholars), or to cause people to turn their faces in your direction. Intend with your actions and words that which is with Allaah, for indeed that which is with Allaah shall remain and everything else shall perish.”
“He have to be balanced when we look at this country. We have to be fair and we have to be balanced. Our discourse has to be fair; it needs to be free from the left and it has to be free from the right. Religion is not left, religion is not right; it’s straight. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said to Sufyan bin Abdullah (when Sufyan asked him to give him some advice because he couldn’t find anyone else to ask) he told him: Say I believe in God and then be straight. Thats the way Muslims have to be, we have to be straight; straight as arrows. We have to ask ourselves: are there things Muslims are doing out there that are creating wrong impressions of what Islam is? We have to ask those questions about our own community. [That’s because] I don’t want to contribute to that picture; a distorted picture of my Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). But if im not living up to his teachings, I am distorting his teaching.”
— Hamza Yusuf

“Lifestyle of Muhammad (PBUH):
Take care of parents kindly.”
"The grave is a nightmare for everyone…except true Muslims; Muslims who live obeying the commands of Allah subhaana wa ta’ala). The Qur’an and Hadith clearly tell us how to escape this nightmare. Fasting, charity, recitation of Qur’an, etc are all deeds which help save us from the punishment in the grave and hereafter. All deeds, good and bad, are written down and are countable. Thinking about death and the hereafter often times a day will help us strengthen our emaan. Death is inevitable and no one will escape it, but preparing for the aakhira will make our death easier, protect us in the grave and, inshaAllah, guide us to Jannah."
— Remember the inevitable Death by Shaharban.
The Commander of the Faithful, Umar ibn al Khattab, relates that he heard Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) say:
"Actions are but by intentions and every man will have only what he intended.
So whoeveremigrated for Allah and His Messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and
And whoever emigrated to attain something of this world or to marry a woman, then his emigration was for whatever reason he emigrated."
[Sahîh al-Bukhari and Sahîh Muslim]
