Fear Allaah As He Should Be Feared

Allaah [تعالى] said:

﴿اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ﴾‏

«Fear Allaah as He should be feared.» [Ala-Imran: 102]

Abdullaah bin al-Mubarak [D.181A.H.] said: Murrah bin Sharhabeel said that Abdullaah bin Mas’ood [رضي الله عنه] said regarding the Ayaah:

﴿اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ﴾‏

«Fear Allaah as He should be feared.» [Ala-Imran: 102]

«حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ أَنْ يُطَاعَ فَلَا يُعْصَى، وَأَنْ يُشْكَرَ فَلَا يُكْفَرَ، وَأَنْ يُذْكَرَ فَلَا يُنْسَى.»

❝Fear Allaah as He should be feared, means that Allaah should be obeyed and not disobeyed. He is thanked and not disbelieved in. He is remembered and not forgotten.❞

Goodness towards the parents after their death is with the [following] matters:

1- That you love (show kindness) to the one who your parents used to love and were fond of, for verily from the most righteous of the righteous (deeds) is to love the dear one of your father.

2- That you keep ties with the friends of your parents, particularly from the close relatives for that is more affirmed.

3- That you strive in rectifying yourself and in supplicating for them (both).

4- That you give in charity for them, for verily the charity of a child for his father and mother reaches them and benefits them (both).

5- That you make Hajj for them after you have made Hajj for yourself, and that you make ‘umrah for them after that you have made ‘umrah for yourself, for surely this will benefit them (both).

يكون الإحسان إلى الوالدين بعد وفاتهما بأمور:

-أن تود من كانوا يحبونه ويودونه فإن من أبر البر أن تود ود أبيك

-أن تصل أصدقاء والديك ولاسيما من الأقارب فهذا آكد.

-أن تحرص على صلاح نفسك وعلى الدعاء لهما.

-أن تتصدق عنهما، فإن صدقة الإبن عن أبيه وأمه تبلغهما وتنفعهما.

-أن تحج عنهما بعد أن تكون قد حججت عن نفسك ، وأن تعتمر عنهما بعد أن تكون قد اعتمرت عن نفسك، فإن هذا ينفعهما.

A wife and a husband should be regarded as friends for the sake of Allah. And that friendship is above material needs; each encouraging the other one to do good deeds, which are pleasing to Allah. #Allah #Life #Encouragement #gooddeed

All Goodness Of World Lies in 4 Things
عن إبن عباس – رضي الله عنهما – أن النبي – صلى الله عليه وسلم – قال: أربع من أعطيهن فقد أعطي خير الدنيا والآخرة، قلباً شاكراً، ولساناً ذاكراً، وبدناً على البلاء صابراً، وزوجة لا تبغيه حوباً في نفسها وماله
Ibn ‘Abbās reported: The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said: “There are four that whomever receives has been given goodness in this world and the Hereafter: a grateful heart, a tongue of remembrance, a body patient with trials, and a wife neither treacherous with herself nor her husband’s wealth.”

“Do not ever get bored of asking for forgiveness.”

Ibn Rajab al-Hanbalee (rahimahullaah) said:
“It was said to al-Hasan al-Basree: ‘Shouldn’t one of us feel too shy before his Lord to ask for forgiveness of his sins then do them again, then ask for forgiveness then do them again?’ He said: ‘The shaytaan would love to gain victory over you in this manner. Do not ever get bored of asking for forgiveness.’”

[Jaami’ al-‘Uloom wal-Hikam (1/165)]

None can harm you if you speak truth to please Allah

Prophet Muḥammad Ṣallallāhu-ʿAlaihi Wa Sallam said:

“Whoever seeks to please Allāh by displeasing people; Allāh will suffice him against need (and harm) of people and whoever seeks to please people by displeasing Allāh; Allāh will leave his authority with people (who will eventually oppress him).”
