Are we one of them? Do we even strive to become such?


Verily, the Muttaqûn (the pious) will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs (in Paradise). Taking joy in the things which their Lord has given them. Verily, they were before this Muhsinûn (good-doers). They used to sleep but little by night [invoking their Lord (Allāh) and praying, with fear and hope]. And in the hours before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allāh) for forgiveness. And in their properties there was the right of the Sâ'il (the beggar who asks) and the Mahrûm (the poor who does not ask others).

Sūra Adh-Dhâriyât: Verses 15-19


Subhan'Allāh. May we all have the heart and will to strive to become such people that Allāh, to their excellence, mentioned their characteristics in the Qur'ān. Amīn.


وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ ۖ وَلَلدَّارُ الْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ ۗ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ

“And the life of this world is nothing but play and amusement. But far better is the house in the Hereafter for those who are Al-Muttaqun (the pious). Will you not then understand?”

[Quran, 6:32]

Words from a shaykh

Shaikh Abu Muhammad Ahmad As-Subay'ee (hafidhahullaah) said: “Only strive in clinging to the Sunnah; even if all of mankind praised you, it would not increase you in anything with Allaah.”

Shaikh Abu Muhammad Ahmad As-Subay'ee (hafidhahullaah) said: “From the evil effects of sins is that they weaken one’s ability to distinguish Truth from falsehood.”

Shaikh Abu Muhammad Ahmad As-Subay'ee (hafidhahullaah) said: “If someone only speaks against those people whom have spoken against him first, then he’s not a sincere advisor.”
