“Marriage in Islam is not about two people getting married to be happy,
it’s about two people getting married to make eachother happy” 😉

Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (may Allaah bless him and grant him peace) said, “None of my companions should convey to me anything regarding another because I desire to meet everyone one of you with a clean heart.” [Abu Dawood and at-Tirmidhi]

Commentary: ‘Should not convey to me anything’ here signifies anything undesirable or that which is harmful for the person concerned. Thus, this hadeeth stresses that defects of people should not be unnecessarily reported to those who are at the helm of affairs.

So I had to delete some text messages from my phone (not enough storage space), so was deleting some of the messages sent by my beloved sisters at the time of my father’s passing….

When reading those words, they truly touched my heart, and yes the tears are gushing. These tears aren’t just for my lose, but for the sisters that I have around me. So much love and beautiful unity, my sisters are apart of me and I hope I am apart of them. I would read these texts for comfort and motivation… I pray I will be able to our friendship and sisterhood justice, that Allah increases this love and mercy between us, and raises us up as righteous companions on the Day of Judgement. Ameen.

Here are some of the messages:

From NA

Goodnight my beloved sis. May Allah protect you and you family and guide and help ease you through this time. Ameen. Every time I look up and see the starts I think of uncle 🙂 because you know why? The first time I met him he showered me with his beautiful knowledge of stars and constellations. The beauty of the stars was just like his heart… My Allah allow his soul to emanate and shine bright in his grave of rest and on the last day of rising just like how the brightness of the stars shines down on earth, Ameen ya Rabb!XxX

From FA

Salam, how is everyone? You, family? and your brother? how is he coping? Inshallah he will manage it, he seemed mature, time is a great healer, over time, him and everyone will come to term with unsubtitutable loss and the reality of life, he was a good person and Inshallah left good children behind, keep on doing good work and he will keep receiving rewards Inshallah. Ws

From ZH

Salaam. How are you? I know the house must feel empty without Abu but he is in a best place without pain. His soul must be so at peace. Alhmaudlilah. My words cannot comfort you but may Allah heal your pain and of your family. Ameen

From ZH

“Indeed, Allah is with the patient”…So be patient; indeed, the (best) outcome is for the righteous.”…For indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of  those who do good” and will reward them for what they patiently endured with a garden in Paradise and silk garments”. Your always in my duas. And in Allah ta’ala we relied X

 A text I recieved from a sister… brought back memories of how close we used to be:

The greatness of Sisterhood in Islam is such that what one desire for themselves they wish upon their sister. Their honour is one, their zeal is one, and their aim is one. May you and I be granted place close to one another in the gardens beneath which rivers flow as Allah says that is the supreme success! I think of you continuously may Allah enable me to be close to you for eternity.

How I miss the sisterhood we felt so strong, while it lasted it was like ecstasy filling our heart and soul with pure bliss. Contentment with every breath, knowing the company who I had so much comfort in will also be there for me in heart and spirit.

The smallest gesture can open a window of hope. A sister is always in need of a cheer up; give them a cheer up call.

Pick up the phone, call up someone who you havent spoken to in a while, see the difference in your relationship. Keep the ties of kinship and the ties of love, of sisterhood. You never know when you may need a quick cheer up call. 😉

Assalamu alaykaum

I came across this poem that Shiekh ibn al Qayyim rahiamullah wrote about how he first felt when he met Ibn Taymiyyah rahiamullah for the first time a moment that would change his life forever….

he said:

His hand took my hand and we journeyed without pause,
till he showed me the place where the sun of faith rises
and i saw the banner of the city, and ’round about it
the descebt of Guidance and the forces of Quran
and i saw a sign of wonderous import
yet veiled from a blind throng
and i was given drink from a crystal glass
water that glistened like the jewels of a crown
and i saw cups as numerous as the stars
to quench the thirst of the thirsting
and i saw round the pure springs of Kawthar
whose waters ever gush, two scales
the scale of the sunnah and the scale of God’s word
which enternity will not rust nor tarnish

Subhnallah a great eloqently described meeting of one so dear to his heart, may Allah be pleased with them both. Rarly do we find such tranquility and peace meetimng with great people.

I must admit I have only had the privilage of such meetings but a few times. Of these Allah found in his wisdom to make our paths cross no more, of others He allowed us to gather in His rememberence only for time to drift us apart once again.

I see it in students of knowledge so much, that Allah blesses me with their presence, only for my heart to be deprived of their company again until Allah sees me worthy of the knowledge once more.

We find oursleves inclined to certain people, students of knowledge not because of the individual per say, but because of the way they make our hearts feel. This is why we owe so much to Shiekhs and students of knowledge, even if it be one hadith that they expalined us, we are ever in debted to such knowledge. Knowledge of Allah can never be valued, thus we cease to be in debt to them.

Allah have mercy upon them all and increase them all in knowledge and wisdom. Ameen

We are all on a path to knowledge at any given moment finding any oppotunity to increase ourselves in ilm and hikma, indeed if someone takes steps towards Allah, Allah will make it easier for him. My ultimate aim is to study under great scholars of our ummah, Inshallah I pray that day will come soon, with companion(s) with whom I can prepare provisions and share this journey.

May Allah make ua all upon the rightly guided way, on the path of wisdom and help us all in our never ending quest for knowledge. Ameen

Reach for the stars! Aim for Firdous!

Keep me in your duas
Wassalam
