We were never designed to be
perfect, for we are far
from perfection. Rather we were designed
to fall at life’s hurdles,
to cry when we are hurt,
to have our hearts broken.

And when
we fall, cry and break, we
turn to Him, for He
is perfect.

He who picks us up when
we fall, who wipes our
silent tears, who mends our broken


Someone who loves you for the sake of Allah will not close their eyes to your flaws, they will help you overcome them, by pointing them out for you

And someone who loves Allah, will accept the nasiha, even though it can be humiliating to be corrected sometimes, because they value their relationship with their Lord, more than their ego.

Strive to be both. A muslim should advice and love to be adviced.

“Love for the sake of Allāh means that you don’t love a man because he will provide you with wealth or that he will benefit you with worldly material, rather you ONLY love him because he’s a PIOUS PERSON.”
— al-‘Allāmah Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān Hafiẓahullāh


✍🏼 al Imam ibn al Qayyim رحمه الله تعالى stated in his book ‘al Fawa’id’:
Abandoning the Quran is of different types:
1. The first type is to abandon hearing it, believing in it and attentively listening to it.
2. The second type is to abandon acting upon it and to abandon restricting oneself to the halal mentioned therein and refraining from the haram mentioned therein even if the person reads it and believes in it.
3. The third type is to abandon ruling by it and seeking rulings from it with regards to the foundational issues of the religion as well as subsidiary issues. Also, to believe that what is in the Quran does not necessitate certainty and that the proofs derived from its words do not result in knowledge (is also abandoning the Quran).
4. The fourth type is to abandon contemplating and increasing one’s understanding and knowledge of what Allah means by His speech and what He wants from the individual.
5. The fifth type is to abandon seeking treatment and remedies with it from all ailments and sicknesses of the heart and by engaging in this type of abandoning, he seeks treatment of his ailments from something else and abandons seeking treatment with the Quran.

All of these examples are included in Allah’s statement {And the Messenger will say: “O my Lord! Verily, my people deserted this Quran (neither listened to it, nor acted on its laws and orders).} [al Furqan:30]

📖 [Bida’i al Fawa’id, pg.132]
Translated by Abu Afnaan Muhammad Abdullah

“O Allah, make my love for You the most beloved thing to me, and my fear for You the most fearful thing to me, and remove from me all worldly needs and wants by instilling a passion for meeting You, and when You have given the people of the world the pleasures of their world, make the coolness of my eyes in worshiping You. Ameen”

“All humans are dead except those who have knowledge, and those who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good deeds, and those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere, and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry.”

Listening To The Qur’aan

Shaykh Abdul Aziz Bin Baz said:

❝The one listening to the Qur’aan is a participant with the reader in every letter which incurs a good deed, and every good deed is equivalent to ten the like of it.❞

[Fatawa Noor Ala Darb, (26/350) | Translated By Abbas Abu Yahya Miraath al-Anbiyya]

✒ Following Desires In Dunyā Leads To Punishment In Ākhirah

Prophet Muḥammad Ṣallallāhu-ʿAlaihi Wa Sallam said:

“The sweetness of Dunyā is the bitterness of Ākhirah and the bitterness of Dunyā is the sweetness of Ākhirah.”

Even the people closest to you may say mean and nasty things. Take it in your stride. That’s just how life is. Your job is to be patient and rise above it all.

Never forget that the Almighty hears everything. Surely He will make things right.”
