islamic-quote-on-trials

Assalaamualaikum wr wb,

The hadith above is trying to teach us that when we are afflicted with hardships, Allah (swt) is only testing us so that we may benefit. When people suffer, in the end they always come out stronger and wiser. Allah (swt) tested all the prophets with so many hardships yet they still had faith and patience to endure through these hardships. For example, Prophet Yunus (as) was stuck in the belly of a whale, Prophet Yusuf (as) was afflicted with jealousy from his brothers, Prophet Ayyub (as) with sickness, and even our dearest Prophet Muhammad had so many trials throughout his life. But still their faith was strongest at these times and they didn’t stop praying to Allah (swt). They didn’t stop asking for forgiveness and appreciating what they had. Surely Allah (swt) only tested them because He loves them. We should follow the prophets’ examples and endure through hardships with patience and our faith should never waver. In fact, our faith should be strongest at these times. It will be difficult at these times, but think how pleased Allah (swt) will be with you when you endure with patience and strong faith. Not only that, but remember that after hardship, comes ease. Also, Allah (swt) does not give us trials that we can not bear. And always smileeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!! 😀

Assalamualaikum wr wb,

Well I’m going to copy and paste the Final Sermon of Prophet Muhammad (saw). The link is: http://www.iqrasense.com/about-islam/the-last-sermon-khutbah-of-prophet-muhammad-farewell-sermon.html They really explain it well. It’s so cool to know that even after so many years, we are still reading his sermon. Mashallah! 😀 Before when I was younger I thought it was pretty cool but now that I understand it more, I’m like Oh my Allah, this is soooo amazingg!!! Anyways here is the link, they first talk about the sermon and then actually say it:

 

Shortly before his death, Prophet Muhammad delivered a sermon during theHajj, which came to be known as his “Final Sermon”.  This final sermon was not only a reminder to his followers, but also an important admonition.  The final sermon confirms the end of his Prophetic Mission.

 

Year 10 A.H.  of the Islamic Calendar is considered to be one of the most significant years for three reasons.  Firstly, this was the year when the Prophet delivered his Last Sermon during his farewell pilgrimage to Mecca.  Secondly, this was the year where number of deputations came to the Prophet to announce their Islam as well as their tribes.  Thirdly, it was the golden period of Islam when multitudes of people embraced the faith by accepting the message of the Prophet.

 

Prophet Muhammad undertook his farewell pilgrimage in the year 10 A.H.  His farewell pilgrimage to Mecca is one of the most significant historical events in the minds of Muslims, for it was the first and last pilgrimage made by Prophet Muhammad, as well as being the model for performing the fifth pillar of Islam, theHajj.

 

Prophet Muhammad’s final sermon was delivered during the Hajj of the year 632 C.E., the ninth day of Dhul Hijjah, the 12th month of the lunar year, at Arafat, the most blessed day of the year.  There were countless Muslims present with the Prophet during his last pilgrimage when he delivered his last Sermon.

 

The Final Sermon:

 

After praising, and thanking God, the Prophet, may God send His praises upon him said:

 

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.  Therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.

 

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.  Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners.  Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you.  Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds.  God has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived.  Your capital, however, is yours to keep.  You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity.  God has Judged that there shall be no interest, and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn Abd’al Muttalib shall henceforth be waived…

 

Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion.  He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

 

O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you.  Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under a trust from God and with His permission.  If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness.  Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.  And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.

 

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship God, perform your five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadan, and offer Zakat.  Perform Hajj if you have the means.

 

All mankind is from Adam and Eve.  An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab; white has no superiority over black, nor does a black have any superiority over white; [none have superiority over another] except by piety and good action.  Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood.  Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly.  Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.

 

Remember, one day you will appear before God and answer for your deeds.  So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

 

O People, no prophet or apostle will come after me, and no new faith will be born.  Reason well, therefore, O people, and understand words which I convey to you.  I leave behind me two things, the Quran and my example, the Sunnah, and if you follow these you will never go astray.

 

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and it may be that the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly.  Be my witness, O God, that I have conveyed your message to your people.”

 

Thus the beloved Prophet completed his Final Sermon, and upon it, near the summit of Arafat, the revelation came down:

 

“…This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My Grace upon you, and have chosen Islam for you as your religion…” (Quran 5:3)

 

Even today the Last Sermon of Prophet Muhammad is passed to every Muslim in every corner of the word through all possible means of communication.  Muslims are reminded about it in mosques and in lectures.  Indeed the meanings found in this sermon are indeed astounding, touching upon some of the most important rights God has over humanity, and humanity has over each other.  Though the Prophet’s soul has left this world, his words are still living in our hearts.

Assalaamualaikum wr wb,

The part that is in bold is the post. The rest is just my nonstop blabber. 

First of all, as you can see, I’ve lost the word sisters because for some odd reason, even though this website was specified as girls only, some males decide to join… I don’t really care but I find it annoying that no one listened to that fact. Well whatever Islam is for everybody, not just females…

Anyways back to the post! Yay, I’m finally doing a post after so long! Aren’t you guys just so darn excited?! No, not that much huh? Now that’s not a good thing, you should be jumping up and down. Oh gosh, sometimes I feel like I’m a bit on the koo koo side. Like right now,  I’m having an imaginary conversation with myself… Do you other bloggers ever feel that way while writing a post?

Oh yeah I sidetracked, now, for real, back to the post! 😀

“In order that you may not be sad over matters that you fail to get, nor rejoice because of that which has been given to you…” (Qur’an 57:23).  

This is teaching us that don’t get upset over your failures because they’re short-lived. Do you think in 1o years that failure is going to matter? Or more importantly, do you think that failure is going to matter when you’re dead? Or even more importantly, do you think that failure is going to matter on the Day of Judgment?! I don’t think so. Well unless you were a failure at doing good deeds, then it is going to matter. But I mean like in worldly matters, it’s NOT going to matter. Like for instance, is it going to matter to you on the Day of Judgment that you completely failed to get into a very awesome school or you completely failed to get this wonderful job? No, I don’t think so. So don’t get upset because it won’t matter on the Day of Judgment. (And yes I am spelling judgment right, I’m no idiot, that’s how you spell it!) 

This is also teaching us to get too happy when we have a victory because it’s also short-lived. Again this is true and explained in the paragraph above and I don’t feel like repeating it. 

So my dear readers, take this advice  as something to  ( I was going to say something smart or wise but it didn’t come to me… 😥 )

 

Anyways jazakallahu khayran! 😀

Assalaamualaikum wr wb sisters,

STORY — THE SCORPION

“An old man saw a scorpion drowning and decided to pull it out from the water. He calmly extended his hand to reach the creature. When he did, the scorpion stung him. With the effect of the pain, the old man let go the creature and it fell back into the water. The man realizing that the scorpion was drowning again, got back and tried to rescue it but then again it stung him. He let go of it again.

A young boy standing by, approached the old man and said, “Excuse me Sir, you are going to hurt yourself trying to save the evil-vicious creature, why do you insist? Don’t you realize that each time you try to help the scorpion, it stings you?”

The man replied, “The nature of the scorpion is to sting and mine is to help. My nature will not change in helping the scorpion.”

So the man thought for a while and used a leaf from a nearby tree and pulled the scorpion out from the water and saved it’s life.

MORAL LESSON:
Do not change your nature. If someone hurts you, just take precautions. Some pursue happiness while others create it. Let your conscience be your guide in whatever you do.”
