“Your Lord Has Not Forsaken You”

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“Your Lord has not forsaken you, nor has He become displeased
And surely what comes after is better for you than that which has gone before
And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.”
– {Ad-Dhuha, 93:3-5}

“Free yourselves from the worries of the world as much as you can, for whosoever treats his worries in this world as his most serious concern, Allah, blessed be His name, will minimize his real loss in his eyes, and He will cause his fear of poverty to broaden and to be constant. On the other hand, whosoever regards the hereafter as his major concern, Allah, blessed be His name, will group his immediate needs together to become manageable, He will fill his heart with richness and broaden his satisfaction and contentment. In fact, whenever a servant turns his heart wholly towards his Lord, then Allah, blessed be His name, will cause the hearts of His believing servants to flow towards him with love, kindness and mercy while abundant divine blessings will flow towards him to serve his immediate needs more swiftly.”
– Narrated by Ummu Darda: ‘Abdu Darda (ra) has said that Allah’s messenger (salla-Allahu’alayhi wa salam) said the above hadith

“You are only guests in this world and what you own is only a borrowed trust.
Eventually the guest will depart and the borrowed trust must be returned to its rightful Owner.”
– ‘Abd Allah bin Mas’ud
Ya Haqq!

    ” He is the Living One: There is no god but He: Call upon Him, giving Him sincere devotion. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds!” (40:65)

    “Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah alone. It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does any one know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does any one know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted with all things.” (31:34)

    Assalamu alaikum,
    Ya Haqq indeed Dear Irving Darvish,
    A moving selection…oh that the heart can encompass such wisdom!
    Reminds me of the deep messages in these Hadith Qudsi:
    O Dunya, whosoever serves Me serve him, and whosoever serves you enslave him.
    O My slave, free yourself for My worship, then I will fill your chest with richness and protect you from poverty. But if you do not worship Me, I will fill your hands with work and will not protect you from poverty.
    How little is the modesty of the one who has the greed for My Paradise without offering deeds to acquire it. How can I be generous with My Mercy on the one who is miserly in My obedience.
    Wassalamu alaikum

    Salaam Dear Brothers and Sisters:

    Indeed, this life is a borrowed trust from God, and when we stand before Him, consider with what we can repay Him. There is only love and good deeds, kindness and thoughfullness, mercy and compassion. These are the true gold of this life and the next.

    Ya Haqq!

    Nice, Irving. Worry, like guilt, is a difficult thing to live with. This is especially true about the low-grade worry that sticks to you without much notice. It eventually becomes your chief counsel and opportunities are missed left and right. Anyhooo. Thanks.
