Our Tongue Can Be Our Worst Enemy

Sαℓαf Athαr:

Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr said:
«يلزم كل مؤمن ومؤمنة إذا جهل شيئًا من دينه أن يسأل عنه.»
❝It is necessary for every believing man and woman if they are ignorant about anything from their religion that they ask about it.❞
[At-Tamheed, (8/338) | Translated By Abū Ruqayyah ‘Abd us-Samad]

Accept Life As It is

The pleasures of life are short-lived, and more often than not, they are followed by sorrow. 

💢Life means responsibility, a journey wherein change is constant and difficulties are relentless in their onslaught. You will not find a father, a wife, or a friend who is free from problems. Allah has willed for this world to be filled with two opposites: good and evil, righteousness and conuption, happiness and misery. Thus goodness, uprightness, and happiness are for Paradise; evil, corruption, and misery are for the Fire. 

💢The Prophet (bpuh) said: “This world is cursed along with all that is in it, except for these: the remembrance of Allah, what follows it (i.e. good deeds and whatever Allah loves), the scholar, and the student.” 

💢So live according to your reality without always envisioning the ideal life, one that is free from worry and toil. Accept life as it is and adapt accordingly to all circumstances. You will not find in this world such things as the flawless companion or the perfect situation, because flawlessness and perfection are qualities that are foreign to this life. It is necessary for us to make amends: to take what is easy and leave what is difficult; and very frequently, to overlook the faults and mistakes of others. 

[Pg 53 Don’t be sad Aaidh​ ibn Abdullah al Qarni]

*Don’t forget saa’at al-istijaabah (a time when the du’a is answered) today.*
All you have to do is make du’a before Maghrib! Note: It’s NOT ‘Salaat’ (prayer), it’s Saa’at (time) of istijaabah (response).
Jâbir (may Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Prophet ﷺ said: “Friday is comprised of twelve hours. There is one in which a Muslim who asks Allah for something will have it granted to him. Seek it in the last hour after `Asr.”
● (سنن أبي داود ١٠٤٨، سنن النسائ ١٠٣٢)

● [المستدرك على الصحيحين ١٠٣٢]
Prophet ﷺ said: “There is such an hour on Friday, that if any Muslim makes Du’ā during it, his Du’ā will be accepted.”
‎● {صحيح البخاري ٥٢٩٥، صحيح مسلم ٨٥٢}
Imām Ibn al-Qayyim said: “A time when Du’ās will be accepted is during the last hour of ‘Asr on Jumu’ah.”
● {زاد المعاد ١/١٠٤}
Prophet ﷺ said: “Seek the hour in which there is hope that prayers will be answered, on Friday after Asr (mid-afternoon) prayer, until the sun goes down.” 
● [صحيح للألباني في صحيح الترغيب و الترهيب ٠٠٧]
Ibn al-Qayyim said: “The Hour of Response in it (i.e. Friday) is like the Night of Decree in Ramadaan.” 
● [زاد المعاد ٣٩٨/١]
