True bliss and happiness

From among the beautiful commentary from Imam Ahmad rahimahuLlaah is that he was one day asked a great question which all of us contemplate and ask about it
When shall a person find bliss and happiness?
He said  “During your first step into jannah before that you can never have peace, bliss and happiness”
“`Whoever searches for bliss will find bliss

But they who want happiness but do not work for it, nor act for it they shall regret in this world and akhera<code>_And for that Ibn Al-Qayyim rahimahuLlaah said "Jannah is not obtained except from ENDURING the portions of adversity"_
_*You don't want to fast nor uphold acts of sunnah nor learn about them and you want to be among those close to Allah? THAT can NEVER happen.*_
_Jannah is not obtained except from the portions of adversity (i.e enduring this life with patience and perseverance, patient in worship, patient against evil etc etc)_</code>And for that Imam Ahmad rahimahuLlaah said "The happiness of the slave of Allah shall be on the first step they take into Jannah. Only in that shall you find peace, bliss and happiness that there are no worries nor sickness nor death"“`
And those who shall befit that are those who endure themselves (with patience and prayer) through the portions adversity for their goal is to achieve the peace, bliss and happiness in this world and akhera

May Allah make us among them

Taqwa

What’s Taqwa? 
Taqwa is not only in our manners..

 Taqwa is not just about looking islamic…

 Taqwa is not about sporting a beard or wearing a Hijab…

 Taqwa is not appearance
BUT
 Taqwa is when you miss a single prayer, you feel uneasy the whole day…

 Taqwa is when you speak a lie , your instinct feels bad..

 Taqwa is the guilt that follows when u hurt someone knowingly or unknowingly.

Taqwa is the shame and regret that follows a sin you did knowing fully well about it’s stand in the sight of Allah,

 Taqwa is when you cannot sleep the whole night after disobeying or disrespecting your parents

 Taqwa is to cry in the depths of night fearing none but the one above the Arsh. 
 Taqwa is the fear that refrains us from sinning even when we are alone and nobody is looking…

 Taqwa is the guts and the will to please Allah, even when the whole world is hell bent on displeasing Him…

 Taqwa is to wear that beard and Hijab for the sole reason of pleasing Our Creator and to keep it as per sunnah….

 Taqwa is to stay happy and smiling even after knowing this world is a prison for believers…

 Taqwa is the good manners and character that loving and fearing Allah brings in us…

 Taqwa is the struggle to better yourself according to Islam with each passing day…

 Taqwa is not only about rising in deen, it is more about falling but again rising up and never letting go…

 Taqwa IS ALL ABOUT WHAT LIES IN THE HEART. 
 And if this heart is filled with proper Taqwa, then actions automatically follow…

And the sweetness of these actions is so much better..
 NB: You are not forced to share. 
 But as Allah SWT says: 

 Remind, for reminder benefits the believers

Reliance in Allah

Nabii Ibrahim aleyhisalaam felt the sweetness of iman and full reliance in Allah when he was rebuked about worshipping other than the idols thus he said about Allah it is He who:

الَّذِي خَلَقَنِي فَهُوَ يَهْدِينِ
Who created me, then He has shown me the way:
وَالَّذِي هُوَ يُطْعِمُنِي وَيَسْقِينِ
And He Who gives me to eat and gives me to drink:
وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِينِ
And when I am sick, then He restores me to health

[Ashua’ra 78 – 80]
And Mussa alkalim aleyhisalaam when he was with his people at the river banks. Banu Israel upon seeing Firaun drawing closer with his army they cried out
فَلَمَّا تَرَاءَى الْجَمْعَانِ قَالَ أَصْحَابُ مُوسَىٰ إِنَّا لَمُدْرَكُونَ
So when the two hosts saw each other, the companions of Musa cried out: Most surely we are being overtaken.
But the faith of Mussa was unshaken he had that connection,that feeling of closeness to Allah thus he said:
قَالَ كَلَّا إِنَّ مَعِيَ رَبِّي سَيَهْدِينِ
He said: By no means; surely my Lord is with me: He will show me a way out.

[Ashua’ra 61 – 62]
And indeed Allah gave them a way out.
When shall we enjoy that level of tawakul, sweetness, connection and complete reliance in Allah?

Very educative

Very Educative, don’t miss reading this please!
What is real patience?
A fish said to the sea,

“You can never see my tears, because I am in the water.” The sea answered back, “But I can feel your tears, because you are within my heart.”
This is how we are;
No one will feel us except those who are truly close to our hearts. Arwah bin al-Zubayr’s leg was cut because of a disease he

suffered; on the same day the dearest of his seven sons died. The dearest son to his heart died after a horse kick killed him.

Arwah said: “Allahumma lakal hamd, inna lilLahi wa inna Ilaihi raaji’un.”

[ Ya Allah! All thanks to You; we are from Allah and to Him is our return ] You gave me 7 sons and took took one; gave me two legs & two hands but took only one leg.
When Allah SwT besets calamities on us, He compensate us always by forgiving our most of our transgressions. When He takes away something, He always gives back better things.

I ask Allah SwT to join all true Ummah of Rasool SAW together in Jannah.
Days passed; on one ultimate day Arwah went to the house of the Khalifa of the time where he saw a blind old Sheikh with a damaged face .

The Khalifa said: ” Oh Arwah ask this Sheikh his story”. Arwah asked the Sheik as directed. The

Sheikh said, ” Ya Arwah! I used to live in a valley and

in that valley there was nobody richer than me ( money, property and children wise ). Within a single night floods from heavy rains washed away my children, properties

and everything that I ever had. By the next day, after sunrise, I had only a small baby and a camel. The camel ran away, and I ran after it but did not get far when I heard scream of a baby. I turned back only to see my baby’s head in the mouth of a wolf. I tried saving the baby but the wolf had torn him apart. As I turned to go away, the wolf jumped and hit my face; that incidence made me blind, and damaged my face.
Arwah asked the Sheikh, “What did you say after all this, Ya Sheikh? “.

The Sheikh replied: I said, “Allahumma Lakalhamd”, You Graciously left with me a heart and a tongue that will always Glorify You”.
This is the story of real patience; these two people are among those who Allah SwT mentions thus:

ﺇﻧﻤﺎ ﻳﻮﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺼﺎﺑﺮﻭﻥ ﺃﺟﺮﻫﻢ ﺑﻐﻴﺮ ﺣﺴﺎﺏ

( “only the patient will be paid back their rewards in full without measure” )
What kind of calamity have you encountered that made you sad and

live in misery? Can you compare their misery to yours? They were patient and Allah Promises to Reward them; if we are

impatient what reward do we hope to get?

Rabbana Lakalhamd Hamdan Katheeran Tayyiban Mubaarakan Feeh.
We are living with our families; we enjoy good health and wellbeing. We

sleep on our beds, others sleep on the floor, some sleep on garbage while many are in their graves.

We eat and drink to our fill, others wake up and go to sleep in the night with empty stomachs, others are on hospital beds unable to eat or drink, they are being fed through the tube; so, ” Fa bi ayyi aala’irabbiku maa tukadhiban?” WHICH OF THE FAVOURS OF YOUR LORD ( Allah SwT ) DO YOU DENY?
May Allah SwT Reward any person who reads and share this article.

Pls endeavor to Share this wonderful story with all your colleagues & loved ones. May Allah’s Grace and Favours repose in us and our families always!

Reforming your child

Reforming children is like a waqf (endowment) for an eternal reward, as grandparents could be raised due to the duʿā of their grandchildren. He ﷺ said, “A man will be raised a level in Paradise, so he will say, ‘Where is this from?’ It will be said, ‘Due to your son’s istighfār (seeking forgiveness) for you.’”
إصلاح الأولاد كالوقف لأجر دائم فقد يُرفع الأجداد بدعاء الأحفاد قال ﷺ (إن الرجل ليرفع درجة في الجنة فيقول: أَنّى هذا؟ فيقال باستغفار ولدك لك)

Reminder

“Do not think any act of kindness to be too small even if it is:
(1) a piece of string or a shoe-lace (that you give to someone),

(2) a bucket of water (that you fill for someone),

(3) a harmful object that you remove from the road,

(4) or to meet your brother with a smile,

(5) or to make salam when meeting someone,

(6) or to help a person who is lost.”
(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 3 pg. 482)
