Narrated Abu Musa (Radhi Allahu Anhu):
The Prophet (Salla’Allaahu Alayhi wa Salam) heard a man praising another man and he was exaggerating in his praise.
The Prophet (Salla’Allaahu Alayhi wa Salam) said (to him):
“You have destroyed, the man.”
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume No. 8 The Book of Al-Adab, Hadith No. 6060
This life is like a diary, it’s up to us what we write by doing good or bad deeds.
♦♦♦ Beautiful woman, Who wanted to get married ♦♦♦
There was this beautiful woman, who wanted to get married, but she wanted a very pious husband, so she said that she’ll marry the man who recites the whole Quran every single day, fasts for the whole year and stays awake and worships Allah all throughout the night.
She was a very beautiful woman, and a lot of suitors wanted to marry her, but they knew they couldn’t fulfills the conditions she set. Until this one man stepped forward and said he could fulfills them. So the Imam got both of them married.
After the first night of the marriage, the wife sees that the husband doesn’t recite the whole of the Quran, nor does he fast, nor does he stay awake in the worship of Allah, she decided to let it roll on for a few weeks to see if there were any changes, there weren’t, so she filed a complaint and asked for a divorce.
They are both taken in front of the judge, and the judge asked, ‘What were the conditions of the marriage?’ the man replied ‘They were for me to recite the whole Quran daily, keep fast for the whole year and to worship Allah all throughout the night.’The Judge asked, ‘ did you fulfill them?
The man calmly answered, ‘…yes.’The judge answers, ‘you lie, your wife has said that you don’t, that’s why she’s asking for a divorce’.But the man insisted that he had fulfilled the conditions, so the judge asked, ‘did you recite the full Quran everyday?’
The man answered yes.
The Judge, baffled asked, ‘how? How can you do that?’
The man coolly answered, ‘I recite Surah Ikhlas three times a day and according to Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W), reciting Surah Ikhlas three times is equivalent to reciting the whole Quran.’
The Judge was intrigued, so he asked, ‘how did you fast the whole year?
’The man answered, ‘
I fasted for the whole month of Ramadan, then kept another six fasts in the month of Shawwal, according to Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W), keeping all of the fast of Ramadan then keeping six fasts in the month of Shawwal, is as if you have fasted for the whole year.
’The Judge remained silent, he couldn’t give a reply saying the man was wrong, so finally he asked, ‘ how did you stay awake all night and worship Allah, when your wife saw you sleeping?
’ The Judge thought the man wouldn’t be able to answer this one, But the man, cool as a cucumber answered, ‘I prayed Salatul Isha with jamaat, then the next day prayed Salatul Fajr with jamaat, according to Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W), the one who prays Salatul Isha and Salatul Fajr with jamaat, it is as if he had stayed up all night worshipping Allah.’
The Judge sat there looking at the man; the final verdict was about to be released…He said to the man and his wife, ‘…go, just go, there is nothing wrong with this marriage’…
Moral : ISLAM IS A VERY EASY RELIGION IF WE FOLLOW IT PROPERLY
Be patient with every trial you get because it will end at its appointed time.The worse part of it is that if you complain, you will lose your reward.
You won’t find peace in committing a sin, it will give you pleassure for a while and regret for whole life.
The love of the World generally blinded the eyes, those eyes which should have been used to identify the specialties of the Almighty Creator.
Miracles can happen if you have a Miraculous Strong Faith.
Q:Assalllamou Alaykoum Wa Rahmatou Allahi Wa Barakatouh, I'm foreign student in Canada and I pay a lot and I'm very lazy in my studies, these days I ask allah to marry me with the right person to not make my parents sad of me if I fail in something at university. My question is if I do this is my intention bad? I want to marry to get closer to Allah, I don't know what to say but I think maybe God won't answer me because my intention is bad ( to not keep paying the university ) what do you think ??
Walaikum Assalaam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,
Well marriage and education is two different things. Your parents will get happy if you get married but they will also get sad if you get fail in your studies. Everything has its own importance you can’t say that if you get married and fail in university, your parents won’t be sad. They have hope in you so don’t let them down, concentrate on your studies. . So, whenever you feel not like studying, just think of your parents how much they have hope in you and in shaa Allah you will get motivated to study.
Marriage is something that’s not in our hand, it will happen when Allah wills. So it’s a good thing that you are praying for a pious spouse and He will give you when the time is right in shaa Allah. Marriage is not a bed of roses, it has own trials and by having a husband/wife you will get more responsibilities and now it’s the best time you have to work on yourself. No one is perfect and don’t expect so much from someone. Marriage is a good thing it helps us to restrain from haram but you have to work on yourself also because we don’t know what the future holds.Perform your obligatory prayer and after every prayer recite this dua in sha Allah you will get a good husband/wife when the time’s come:
"Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous." (Quran 25:74)
Following are some dua’s for your studies:
Glory be to you, we have no knowledge except what you have taught us. Verily, it is You, the All-Knower, the All-Wise
[surah Baqarah; 2:32]
O my Lord! Advance me in Knowledge
[surah Ta-Ha; 20:114]
And the following dua for the laziness:
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]
I hope it will be helpful. May Allah guide us all to the straight path.
Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness
Being ‘Happy’ is not a sin in Islam, but if the Haram is what is making you happy, then realize that Shaytaan is closer than you think.
My sins burdened me heavily. But when I measured it against Your grace, O Lord, Your forgiveness came out greater.
If you are single then make du’aa that you find someone who
makes you fall in love with ALLAH every single day!
