miserliness

A lady sat next to the taxi driver while all the seats were empty in the back..
She’s the wife of the taxi driver

A man with a long beard walked past a masjid while the people were praying, and he didn’t enter to pray..
He had prayed in another masjid where they pray immediately after the adhaan

You sit next to someone and say salam, but they didn’t reply back..
Easy, they didn’t hear you

A friend from college declines an invitation to go out for coffee..
He’s not miserly but he sees how much sweat his father puts into his work in order to send him some money every month..

Most of the time, we only see part of the picture, so imagine the rest of the picture in a positive way in order to not wrong others. Think good about the people and you will be at ease.

One of the righteous people said: If I see someone with alcohol dripping from his beard, then I’ll say perhaps it spilled on him. And if I see him on top of a mountain saying, ‘I am your lord most high’ (أنا ربكم الأعلى), then I’ll say he’s reciting an ayah from the Quran.

One of the righteous people said: By Allah, it’s already difficult for the slave to know his full intention when doing anything, so how can he go about taking hold of other people’s intentions? Subhan Allah.

Always give excuses for others and think good about them, and say perhaps he has an excuse that we don’t know.

Narrated Asma (radhiAllaahu ‘anha):

Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “Give (in charity) and do not give reluctantly lest Allah should give you in a limited amount; and do not withhold your money lest Allah should withhold it from you.”

—  [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 3, no. 764]

Can we talk about this:

And how big a deal it is?

I mean, look…we all know Soos is the perfect replacement for Stan. We all know that by giving Soos the role of Mr. Mystery, he’s not only making Soos’s long-term dream come true, he’s cementing the unspoken father-son bond they have by making Soos the closest thing Stan has to an heir.

But a job title isn’t all Stan gives him.

Let’s be clear here–Stan lives like a poor man. He’s cheap and loath to spend a single penny when he can mend, reuse or steal what he needs instead. But I don’t think that’s a sign the Shack isn’t making him money. On the contrary, everything we see about the Shack reinforces the idea that it’s making great money. Stan isn’t poor. He’s miserly. There’s a big difference.

We never see an episode where Stan’s worrying about how business is dropping off or where the Shack is open but deserted. Whenever we see Stan give a tour, there’s always a crowd. And with one or two exceptions (tourists leaving angrily after Waddles eats the Cornicorn) the tourists are almost always forking over huge fistfuls of cash.The Shack frequently hosts huge events that the entire town shows up for, and Stan’s often surrounded by huge piles of cash. The Mystery Shack is such a fixture of Gravity Falls that it’s on the town map hanging in city hall.

Stan’s bitter promise to his family that he would make millions quite frankly probably came true.

Stan didn’t just give Soos his dream job, he gave him an incredibly profitable business that he could have probably sold for millions. Stan “bleed ‘em dry ” Pines. Stan “wouldn’t loan you a nickel without charging interest” Pines. He gave it to Soos for nothing.

Soos deserved it. After ten years of the most loving, devoted loyalty to his father dad papa padre employer for what I can only assume was terrible pay, he had earned it. But that’s not really my point–my point is that Stan, who couldn’t even bring himself to spend a few dollars on pancakes for his niblings, gave away potential millions to his son heir precious child that he loves so much employee with a smile, without hesitation. 

That is huge. That is amazing. That is both an important sign of character growth and an indication of how much Stan loves this precious baby man.

Dua for anxiety & sorrow:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ وَالْحَزَنِ، وَالْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ، وَالْبُخْلِ وَالْجُبْنِ، وَضَلَعِ الدَّيْنِ، وَغَلَبَةِ الرِّجَالِ

O Allah, I seek refuge in You from grief and sadness, from weakness and from laziness, from miserliness and from cowardice, from being overcome by debt and overpowered by men (i.e. others).

Abu Hurairah (radhiAllahu 'anhu) said, the Prophet (sallAllahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said: "Time will pass rapidly, knowledge will decrease, miserliness will become widespread in people's hearts, afflictions will appear, and there will be much Harj." The people asked, "O Messenger of Allah, what is Harj?" He said, "Killing, killing!"

[Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 88, Hadith no. 183]

Grace is simply another word for God’s tumbling, rumbling reservoir of strength and protection. Grace comes to us not occasionally or miserly but constantly and aggressively, wave upon wave. We’ve barely regained our balance from one breaker, and then, bam, here comes another.
—  Max Lucado
Dua when you're stressed, worried, scared.

Allahumma inni a'udhubika minal hammi wal hazan, wal ‘ajzi wal kasal, wal bukhli wal jubn, wa dhala'id-dayni wa ghalabatir rijaal.

{O Allah! I seek refuge in You from grief and sadness,
from weakness and from laziness, 
from miserliness and from cowardice, 
from being overcome by debt and from being overpowered by men(other people)}

Sahih al-Bukhari 7:158

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

Narrated Abu Huraira (radhiAllahu 'anhu): The Prophet (sallAllahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, "Every day two angels come down from Heaven and one of them says, 'O Allah! Compensate every person who spends in Your Cause,' and the other (angel) says, 'O Allah! Destroy every miser.'"

[Sahih Bukhari Vol. 2, no. 522]

            “During the last six years of his life, Henry VII became a virtual recluse in a “court grim and sombre”, his reputation for miserliness and paranoia growing markedly worse. The reign was plunged into crisis: in a short period of three years he lost his heir, Prince Arthur; his wife, Queen Elizabeth of York; a baby Princess, Katherine; his most trusted advisor since the beginning of his reign, Cardinal John Morton; and a loyal friend and counselor, Reginald Bray. Rarely visible, he seemed not to want to be seen. For those who caught a glimpse of him, he seemed to be more dead than alive…”

michael marcus as young!henry, and sharlto copley as old!henry  [insp]

Hairy and harrowing these hauntings are!/But malicious and miserly indeed/are those they do mar.

The Reverend Shiloh from @alexasharpe-art’s webcomic Dream Dossier, currently in preproduction! It’s Alexa’s birthday today: she’s the sweetest and funniest apartment-mate a girl could ask for, so I figured I ought to draw a Desperate Edwardian Man ™ for her!

Happy Birthday, Alexa! Thanks for putting up with me the eraser shavings all over the floor. You’re the best. 

Eat, drink, wear new clothes and give money for charity without extravagance or miserliness. Allah likes to see the effect of His bounties on His servants

Prophet Muhammad (sawa)

Bihar al Anwar, v70, p207

So Nour and I started analysing the new title card for s10 and wow there’s fun stuff to deduce from it (aka maybe subtle hints who knows)

Firstly let’s just observe some details and their meanings and after we can speculate:

You can notice how the lettering of supernatural is gold, gold being the color of royal and since it’s on fire (which is bad) well being surrounded by too much gold can lead you to become egotistical, self-righteous and opportunistic in your quest for greater power and influence. It means revenge.

If living under the negative of the color gold, you may not trust easily, or even exhibit a fear of failure. You may be selfish and demanding, lacking kindness and generosity, even to the extreme of being miserly. and if that doesn’t describe demon!dean then i don’t know.

So let’s focus on that fire too, you can notice sparks coming with it and it can mean evil deeds, sins and crimes that call for punishment in hell-fire. they represent a major calamity. If a spark falls in the midst of a gathering, it means a fight and harm. To see something burning indicates that you are experiencing some intense emotions. There is some situation or issue that you can no longer avoid and ignore. Alternatively, it may suggest that you need to take time off for yourself and relax. Perhaps you are you feeling “burned out” or “burned up”.

In arabic, spark means someone evil is about to be king. And galaxy announces a war with many soldiers deaths (castiel’s army, crowley’s army?? dean’s???) like stars announces the fall of a king.

To see stars symbolize excellence, aspirations or high ideals. You are putting some decision in the hands of fate and luck. Perhaps you are being too “starry eyed” or idealistic. You are you trying to evaluate a situation or establishment.

To see an upside down star (where the point is facing downward) in your dream signifies conflict, negativity and aggression. Since it is often associated with Satan and evil, the dream may also imply that you are you feeling guilty about something. Alternatively, it represents the physical world and your preoccupation with materialistic gains.

A white aura color like the one in the background means angels, but also bad news from someone you trusted according to arabic and a nebula means endless possibilites.

We got some kind of theme running here idk about you.

Ofc Dean is going to do some bad stuff, but I think this also announces a new war coming possibly involving angels and shocker, the death of the king of hell possibly? maybe Dean becoming the new king? or hell, even Sammy coming back to the path of boy king? eNDLESS POSSIBILITIES?! anyways we just think this announces bad evil stuff and an amazing season coming up c:

**btw this is just fun stuff based on islamic dream meaning, dream meaning and poetry meaning so yea goold old whatever meta**
