Rasulullah SAW said, “Do not talk for long without remembering Allah, for talking much without remembering Allah is hardness of the heart. The most distant amongst Men from Allah is one with a hardened heart.”
There are 359 scholars who are imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. (Obv must be more than that, only have a list of 359 names). The person in the picture is Sheikh Nasr al-Fahd. He has memorised nine books of Hadith (this includes all of the volumes). Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, Al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Al-Nasa'i, Ahmad, Muwatta and Al-Daarimi. Sheikh Ahmad Musa Jibril has said this and he also said Sheikh Nasr has memorised 20 essential books regarding aqeedah and fiqh. He also wrote 65 books in prison and Sheikh Ahmad Musa Jibril said this is solid information and if it wasn’t true I wouldn’t mention it. You can see some of his published books and his library on my twitter (@InviteToIslam). May Allah hasten the release of the Muslim prisoners.
Jâbir narrated that the Messenger of Allâh صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “What I fear most from my Ummah is the behavior of the people of Lut.” ( Da`if )[Abu `Eisâ said:] This Hadith is Hasan Gharib , we only know of it from this route, from `Abdullâh bin Muhammad bin `Aqil bin Abi Tâlib, from Jâbir.
At Tirmidhi, The Chapters On Legal Punishments ( Al-Hudud ). Hadith # 1457
Aishah radiAllaahu ‘anha narrated that: The Messenger of Allah said: “The believer is not afflicted by the prick of a thorn or what is worse (or greater) than that, except that by it Allah raises him in rank and removes sin from him.”
Ref: Jami` at-Tirmidhi 965 In-book ref: Book 10, Hadith 1 English translation: Vol. 2, Book 5, Hadith 965
“Shall I not inform you all of the best of your works, the purest of them with your Master (Allah), the loftiest of them in your stations, the thing that is better for you than spending gold and silver (in charity), and better for you than meeting your enemies and slaying them and being slain by them?” They (the companions) said, “Of Course!” He said, “Remembrance of Allah, the Most High.”
The sunnah (as we know it through Bukhari, Muslim, Al Nasai, Ibn Majah, Abu Dawood, Ahmad, Tirmidhi + others) - and the close companions (including wives) of the prophet peace be upon him are very dear to my heart.
With respect - their are major differences between the sunni and shia sects in this regard. That isn’t even the full issue though it’s more than sufficient to steer away in and of itself.
I want to be with someone who loves the sunnah more than me. Someone who holds men like Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan - may Allaah be pleased with them - as his role models and examples.
Not someone who despises them and curses them! Allaahul musta'aan.
Ps. If there happens to be a person from the shia sect reading this and you are thinking… What? We don’t do that! I genuinely from the heart advise you to learn more about what your scholars say… And then choose whether you really want to be part of that.
May Allaah guide us, aameen.
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, ‘One of Prophet Dawud’s supplications was: 'Allahumma inni as'aluka hubbaka, wa hubba man yuhibbuka, wal-'amalalladhi yuballighuni hubbaka. Allahumm-aj'al hubbaka ahabba ilayya min nafsi, wa ahli, wa minal-ma'il-baridi (O Allah! I ask You for Your Love, the love of those who love You, and deeds which will cause me to attain Your Love. O Allah! Make Your Love dearer to me than myself, my family and the cold water).’
The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Allah, Blessed and Exalted is He, says, ‘O son of Adam, as long as you call on Me, I shall forgive you of what you have done, and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if your sins were to reach up to the clouds in the sky, and then you were to ask for My forgiveness, I would forgive you and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if you were to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, and then you were to meet Me after death, not worshipping anything besides Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as the earth.’
The Prophet #Muhammad #ﷺ said:
“Do not #talk too much without #remembrance of #Allah. Indeed excessive talking without remembrance of Allah hardens the #heart. And indeed the furthest of people from Allah are the #harsh-hearted.”
