    The Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "There shall be righteous people in every generation who will carry this [Sacred] knowledge. They shall protect [the religion] from the distortions of those who seek to go beyond the bounds, and the false claims of those who seek to destroy, and the interpretations of those who are ignorant" [Reported by al-Bayhaqi and others].

    From this hadith, we learn:

    1) There shall always be a group of scholars who collectively carry the responsibility of the prophets, and who shall faithfully protect the religion and keep it steered to the Straight Path, with correct knowledge and integrity.

    2) There shall be a group of Muslims who wish to distort the religious texts, and claim that they say things that the texts do not actually say. Some might even be sincere, for ultra-literalist fanatics at times cause more damage than rationalistic modernists, but both of them are going beyond the bounds of the Shariah.

    3) There shall be a group of Muslims whose intentions are evil, and who effectively wish to discredit the very role of the Quran and the traditions of Islam.

    4) There shall be a group of Muslims who are simply uneducated and ignorant, and who shall misinterpret the text, not necessarily out of evil intentions, but because they are not qualified to interpret properly.

    Poetry attributed to Imam Ali ra:
    إن ألمت ملمة بي فإني ... في الملمات صخرة صماء
    حائز في البلاد علماً بأن ليس ... يدوم النعيم والبلواء
    If a calamity was to befall me, then let it be known that in the face calamity I'm an unyielding rock
    And I know that happiness nor sadness ever last

    JazakAllah khayr for this, truly appreciate it., and inshAllah !

    I'm flying to Malaysia inshAllah, and i hate transiting so this will be a direct flight there. I'm thinking of getting an aisle seat.



    JazakAllah khayr for all of this advice sister! Thank you so so much! I guess at the end of the day, it is important to just have tawakkul and know that when your day is written, you could be up 40,000 feet or in a park and still die.
    BarakAllahu feek.
    Yeah definitely, but if you look at facts and statistics, the chance of anything going wrong is very low, so bare that in mind.
    Just have fun and enjoy it

    قال لي الشافعي : يا أبا موسى رضا الناس غايةٌ لا تدرك, ما أقوله لك إلا نصحاً, ليس إلى السلامة من الناس سبيل, فانظر ما فيه صلاح نفسك فالزمه, ودع الناس وما هم فيه
    A scholar said: Oh abu musaa satisfying people is an unreachable goal. And there is no escape from the tongues of people. So my advice to you is to seek what is beneficial for you.

    Why is 'bullying' and acting really egotistical and full of it acceptable to people when arguing and giving dawah.
    I hate the double standards, it has also become the uniform behaviour of muslims nowadays, especially the younger ones. And you can't correct them from their rude behaviour or you're seen as judgemental. So many think they're above criticism.

    I actually enjoy flying and stick my face into the windows even at takeoff and landing, you get to see amazing sights.Its sad they don't have bigger windows.
    I believe bigger windows would increases the risk to the aircraft at higher altitudes due to the pressure differential between the cabin and the outside atmosphere being huge

    I understand. I really fear being an egoistic, especially while giving dawah. Insha'Allah I hope I maintain my good behaviour, manners, character and patience at all times. I feel that dawah and your argument has already lost its value the moment you start losing your patience. Ego can begin to dictate our actions and words.

    I came across this and agree:
    May Allah(SWT) help us to be humble always and never let pride and ego manifest our actions. Ameen.
