Quotes and Advice

As-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah

“Whoever takes the Qur’an as a manhaj (way), Allah will grant him (knowledge of) all the Sciences.”
- Ibn al-Qayyim

Narrated from Jundub (ra) that he said,
“I advice you with the taqwa of Allah and I advice you with the Qur’an for truly it is a light by the dark night and a guidance by the day – act upon it in difficulty and in poverty. If a calamity befalls, sacrifice your wealth instead of your Deen (religion) and if the calamity intensifies, then sacrifice your wealth and your life instead of your Deen for surely the ruined one is he whose religion is ruined and the deprived is he who has been deprived of his Deen. Know that there is no poverty after entering Paradise and no prosperity after entering Hellfire.”

“The wisest advice that you can taken on in your life is not to be so concerned with what is said about you. Indeed, you know who you are and Allah knows best your circumstance and intention. So don’t lessen your worth by always justifying your actions, for indeed failure in life lies in one thing: Trying to please everyone.”
- ‘A’idh al-Qarni

“If you pay close attention, you’ll see that the Qur’an speaks to you on a personal level. Whatever circumstance you’re in, you will come across a verse which reflects your life at that point, and it uplifts you and guides you to the best of actions. It is a sign for you and hence it’s called an ‘Ayah’. But an ayah only reveals itself to those who seek it; those who read the Qur’an and turn to it on a regular basis…”
- Fajr

‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas (ra) was once asked,
“Who do you think is better: a man who has few (good) deeds and few sins or a man who has many (good) deeds and many sins?” He replied, “There is nothing like being safe.”

['al-Zuhd', by Ibn al-Mubarak]

“The one who talks a lot, only waits for Fitnah (tribulation) to occur, whilst the one who is silent waits for Mercy to descend.”
- Yazid ibn Abi Habib

“Whoever has left (this world) will not return, and whoever harms you, will one day be harmed by someone else. The earth is circular and the Dunya (world) encircles, hence the slap that is given today will come back just as hard tomorrow. So do not oppress, lest you be oppressed.”
- Unknown

“Be ambitious in life and don’t allow something or someone to blow out that candle within you. At the end of the day, it is you who will be living out your life, it is you who will be basking in success or coping with regret, and it is you who will be looking back at life when you’re on your deathbed and concluding whether you’ve lived fully, lived sincerely, and lived well, or if you were just living for the sake of others…” 
- Fajr

  1. Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatuallahi wa barakatuhu dear sis fajr

    Your quote is nice but an ayah also reveals itself to those who read it rarely.although reading rarely is sad case.

  2. Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Dear Sister!!

    May Allaah Swt, Al Shafi, Ar-Rauf, Al-Ghani, Al Mannan cure your mom soon with a blessed cure!

    Dear sister please lemme know how to go about to contribute financially…

    Please mail me at fromdarknesstolight@aol.com

    Please do lots of istighfaar, please ask your mom to do as well…I came across couple of lectures about the benefits of doing istighfaar and 2 ahaadith as well.

    And I remember Sheikh Salih Maghaamsi (hafidhahullah) telling that the best type of husn dhan in Allaah Swt is to know/believe that “Allaah Swt is Able to do All things”.

    This is a great reliever, Alhamdulillah. So don’t worry my dear sister!

  3. Jazakum’Allahu khayran sisters H, and amatullah. I appreciate your kind comments and concern. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
