سَأل الإمام أحمد – رحمه الله – بعض تلاميذه : من أين أقبلتم؟ قالوا: من مجلس أبي كريب، فقال: اكتبوا عنه؛ فإنه شيخ صالح، فقالوا: إنه يطعن عليك! قال: فأي شيء حيلتي؟ شيخ صالح قد بلي بي

Imam Ahmad asked some of his students: “Where did you come from?”

They said: “We came from a gathering of Abi Kuraib”.

Ahmad said: “Write from him, for he is a pious Shaykh”.

They said: “But he has slandered you!”

Ahmad said: “What can I do about that? He is a pious Shaykh being tested with me…”.

Sticky: Who am I?

January 22, 2011 3 comments
“I am a traveller seeking the truth, a human searching for the meaning of humanity and a citizen seeking dignity, freedom, stability and welfare under the shade of Islam.

I am a free man who is aware of the purpose of his existence and who proclaims:

“Truly, my prayer and my sacrifice, my living and my dying are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds; no partner has He. This I am commanded and I am of the Muslims (who submit to Him)!” [Quran 6:162-163]

This is who I am…

…who are you?”

Imam Hassan Al-Banna Shaheed

Ibn Mas’ood (radhiallahu anhu- may Allah be pleased with him) said:
“The believer regards his sin as if he were sitting beneath a mountain which he fears may fall on him, whereas the sinner regards his sin as if a fly lands on his nose and he swipes it away.”

Fear of Allah

Imam Ghazali (rahimahullah) said:

‘Fear rips away desires and muddens luxuries so that cherished sins become reprehensible, just as a honey lover is repelled by it when he learns that it has poison in it. This is how fear burns desires; disciplines the organs; subordinates the heart and gives it tranquillity. It also enables the heart to rid itself of pride, hatred and envy; and leaves it absorbed in it (fear). Hence, the heart becomes preoccupied with its own worries and looks towards its best interest in the long run. It is then engaged in only matters like meditation, self-analysis and struggle. It cherishes its time and moments.’

(Ihya 4/160)

What is ‘Ilm (Knowledge)?

January 22, 2011 Leave a comment
‘Ilm [Knowledge] is that which vanishes from committing sins. And is not obtained by a sinner. If solely word-ism was the name of ‘Ilm, it would come together with sin, too – but even with Kufr [Disbelief]. Otherwise in Beirut and Germany Christians are instructors of Arabic, their memory is very strong and their mind is very fast. So, one comes to know that ‘Ilm is not the name of that.
