for-the-sake-of-allah

Who said guidance would be easy. It comes to those who can carry their weight and the weight of those around them. To the true slaves and servants of Allah. And their are ranks even after that. Higher ranks means higher struggle. Feels like the weight of the world is on your back, and it may even be, bear it. Allah does not burden a soul more than it can bear. Imagine the look on RasoolAllah SallahuAlaihi wasalam’s face when he greets you after you struggle through this life. He will know that the coal only got hotter and you held on because he set up damn well examples for us. SallahuAlaihi wasalam. And imagine meeting Allah!!! Do it for HIS sake and attain HIS mercy. Imagine hearing, “You did well” and are admitted into paradise. Ya Allah.. Ya Allah.. Make us from the people of Al firdous.. Allahumma Ameen

The couple who marries for the sake of Allah, knows that life is too short for meaningless arguments. They don’t marry thinking “What can this person give me”. They marry thinking “What can I give this person”. Because they know that fulfilling each others rights equals gaining the love of Allah. Bi’idnillah. 

The leaking bucket

Beware of the leaking Bucket!

1.You take the best wudhu but waste a lot of water (a leaking Bucket).

2.You pray all of your prayers in time but you have no khushu (a leaking bucket).

3.You post reminders and have thousands of followers on Instagram and Facebook but you’re doing it for the fame not to please Allah (a leaking bucket).

4.You help others but you’re doing it to gain something from them and not doing those acts of kindness for the sake of Allah’s Glory (a leaking bucket).

5.You give alot of sadaqah to the poor but you humiliate them and hurt them (a leaking bucket).

6.You stand up for tahajjud at night, fast, read Quran every day and obey your Lord but you cut your family ties (a leaking bucket).

7.You are very kind to people and speak with them gently but with your family you are always harsh (a leaking bucket).

8.You fast and have sabr for the pangs of hunger and thirst but you swear, insult, curse (a leaking bucket).

9.You wear abaya and Hijab but your perfume is strong (a leaking Bucket).

10.You are following the sunnah and have a beard but you don’t lower your gaze (a leaking bucket).

11.You honour and treat your guest well but when he/she leaves you gossip about him/her and talk about all his/her flaws (a leaking bucket).

Do not gather all your good deeds in a leaking bucket. You struggle to fill it whilst it easily runs out through the leaking holes!

May Allah guide us to the right path, make us do all of our good actions for pleasing Him alone and by Your mercy be pleased with us always Ameen.

Someone who loves you for the sake of Allah will not close their eyes to your flaws, they will help you overcome them, by pointing them out for you

And someone who loves Allah, will accept the nasiha, even though it can be humiliating to be corrected sometimes, because they value their relationship with their Lord, more than their ego. 

Strive to be both. A muslim should advice and love to be adviced.

It’s okay if your kindness isn’t appreciated. Do it for the sake of Allah and you’ll feel better. And continue to be a better person. You’ll never know who will follow your footstep and spread kindness.

When you love someone, you don’t expect anything in return.

Even if he or she doesn’t love you back, you still pray for them in order to see them happy, only because you love them.

But it would be nice if the person you love decides to love you back.

Love someone for Allah’s sake. And you wouldn’t ask why or how.

Three Secrets to happiness:

Sabr - Constant patience

Shukur - Grateful heart

Ikhlas - Believe in the Oneness of Allah and doing things only for His sake

Marriage gets a lot better when you stop expecting it to be perfection. The moment you change your expectations of love your heart is now ready to mature into real love.

A love that comes packaged in a dunyah which is like a prisoner for the believer. Yes, we love in some form of temporary prison, and yet, within it’s limitations there is immense beauty and breathtaking moments to be experienced. The mercy of Allah is great, and His signs are everywhere.

Even in love. But His tests are there too. The ones to shape us, remind us of Who we need the most, of Who is going to save us. Of Whose love is the greatest.

Let go of seeking perfection and instead, embrace the journey of growing together in love and worship for the sake of Allah.

—  Via Wives of Jannah

“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 another’s sake but because Allah Loves those who do good.”

- Ibn Al-Qayyim

How beautiful is it that a servant forgives the one who backbites about him or who slanders him, and stays silent when he could have responded, all for the sake of Allah. How beautiful then will be his meeting with Allah? Imagine Allah saying to you, “You showed Mercy and forgave My slave, so today I forgive you.”
