Prophet Muhammed

عن أبي ذر الغفاري رضي الله عنه، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “ألا أخبرُك بأحبِّ الكلامِ إلى اللهِ ؟ قلتُ : يا رسولَ اللهِ ! أخبرني بأحبِّ الكلامِ إلى اللهِ . فقال : إن أحبَّ الكلامِ إلى اللهِ ، سبحانَ اللهِ وبحمدِه“ صحيح مسلم حديث ٢٧٣١

Abu Dharr reported that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: “Should I not inform you about the words liked most by Allah? I said: Allah’s Mes- senger, do inform me about the words liked most by Allah. He said: Verily, the words liked most by Allah are: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said to me, “Shall I tell you the expression that is most loved by Allah? It is ‘Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdih’ (hallowed be Allah and praise is due to Him).“ Sahih Muslim 2731 b

Amazing advice from Ibn Al-Qayyim رحمه الله

“A friend will not (literally) share your struggles, and a loved one cannot physically take away your pain, and a close one will not stay up the night on your behalf. So look after yourself, protect it, nurture it. Don’t give life’s events more than what they are really worth. 

Be certain that when you break, no one will heal you except you; and when you are defeated, no one will give you victory except your own determination. Your ability to stand up again and carry on is your responsibility.

Do not look for your self-worth in the eyes of people; look for your worth from within your conscious. If your conscious is at peace then you will ascend high, and if you truly know yourself then what is said about you won’t harm you.

Do not carry the worries of this life, because this is for Allah. And do not carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allah. And do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the Hands of Allah.

Carry one thing:

How to Please Allah. Because if you please Him, He Pleases you, fulfils you and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep, just say “Oh Allah compensate me with good in this life and the hereafter”.

Sadness departs with a sajdah. Happiness comes with a sincere du'a. Allah does not forget the good you do, nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.

Live your life with this principle: Be good even if you don’t receive good, not because of other’s sake but because Allah loves the good doers".

عن سعد بن أبي وقاص رضي الله عنه قال: كان النبيُّ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّم يُعَلِّمُنا هؤُلاءِ الكَلِماتِ، كما تُعَلَّمُ الكِتابَةُ : “ اللَّهُمَّ إني أعوذُ بكَ مِنَ البُخلِ، وأعوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الجُبنِ، وأعوذُ بِكَ مِن أنْ نُرَدَّ إلى أرْذَلِ العُمُرِ، وأعوذُ بِكَ مِن فِتنَةِ الدُّنْيا، وعَذابِ القَبرِ ” . صحيح البخاري حديث ٦٣٩٠

Narrated Sa`d bin Abi Waqqas: The Prophet (ﷺ) used to teach us these words as he used to teach us the Book (Qur'an): “O Allah! seek refuge with You from miserliness, and seek refuge with You from cowardice, and seek refuge with You from being brought back to (senile) geriatric old age, and seek refuge with You from the affliction of the world and from the punishment in the Hereafter." Sahih al-Bukhari 6390

A man feeds a cat in Turkey.

The Companions asked The Prophet 

“Shall we be rewarded for showing kindness to the animals also?” Heﷺsaid, “A reward is given in connection with every living creature”. 

(Riyadh Us Saliheen. Book 1, Hadith 126).

عن البراء بن عازب، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال:” إذا أتيتَ مضجعَكَ ، فتوضَّأْ وضوءَكَ للصَّلاةِ ، ثمَّ اضطجِعْ على شقِّكَ الأيمنِ ، وقُلِ : اللَّهمَّ أسلَمتُ وجهي إليكَ ، وفوَّضتُ أمري إليكَ ، وألجأتُ ظَهْري إليكَ ، رَهْبةً ورغبةً إليكَ ، لا مَلجأَ ولا مَنجى منكَ إلَّا إليكَ ، آمنتُ بِكِتابِكَ الَّذي أنزلتَ ، وبنبيِّكَ الَّذي أرسَلتَ ، فإن متَّ متَّ على الفطرةِ فاجعَلهنَّ آخرَ ما تقولُ” فقلتُ أستذكُرُهُنَّ : وبرسولِكَ الَّذي أرسَلتَ . قالَ : “لا ، وبنبيِّكَ الَّذي  أرسَلتَ”صحيح البخاري حديث ٦٣١١

Narrated Al-Bara bin `Azib: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said to me, “When you want to go to bed, perform ablution as you do for prayer, then lie down on your right side and say: ‘Allahumma aslamtu wajhi ilaika, wa fawwadtu ‘amri ilaika wa alja'tu dhahri ilaika, raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika, la malja'a wa la manja minka illa ilaika. Amantu bikitabik al-ladhi anzalta wa binabiyyika al-ladhi arsalta’. If you should die then (after reciting this) you will die on the religion of Islam (i.e., as a Muslim); so let these words be the last you say (before going to bed)” While I was memorizing it, I said, “Wa birasulika al-ladhi arsalta (in Your Apostle whom You have sent).’ The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “No, but say: Wa binabiyyika al-ladhi arsalta (in Your Prophet whom You have sent).
