Re: Don't Be Sad - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #1)

JazakAllahukhair Verb for the awesome GEMS, Dont be Sad is fantastic MashaAllah because you can open it to any page and benefit.

I found that I truly had to internalize and "let go" of my belief that I have any control over my fate...tying the camel is important but whether the camel gets loose or not is out of our control so its all about the tests Allah puts before us and framing them as khair both ways...crisis brings us closer to our Rabb ( you cant find that in any other deen ) and blessings-which can also be a trial-are gifts from Allah showing his Rahma.

Its about jumping wholeheartedly into Allah's awaiting guidance..we being forgetful struggle against it thinking we know better...I know I do but Alhamdulillah the struggle continues...

I'd like to think of it as owning too many books that I couldn't keep track of what I had and didn't have! (alhamdulilah)

Re: Don't Be Sad - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #1)

Gem: Page 275
Performing Noble Deeds is the way to Happiness

If you love that good should befall others, then you have a blessed gift from Allah.

Ibn 'Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
" In me, are three qualities. The first is that whenever it rains, I praise, and thank Allah, I feel happy for this blessing, even if I myself don't own camels or sheep to benefit from the rain. The second is that whenever I hear of a just judge, I supplicate to Allah for him, even if I don't have a case pending with him. The third is that whenever I gain knowledge of (the meaning of) a verse of the Qu'ran, I long for others to learn what I know from it."

--- Subhan'Allah, when I read this three questions ran through my head...
1. How often are we granted the blessing of gaining knowledge about our deen?
2. How often do we share this blessing?
3. Which side weighs more?

Re: Don't Be Sad - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #1)

"When I read Don't be sad, it made me sad, and extremely mad, because other Ibaad, from different Bilaad, never read or had, the book Don't be sad"

Re: Don't Be Sad - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #1)

Gem: Page 276
Beneficial Knowledge and Fruitless knowledge

There is knowledge that is useful and there is knowledge that is harmful. As for the knowledge that is useful, the believer's faith strengthens as a result of it; on the other hand, the disbeliever does not reap any benefit whatsoever from gaining this kind of knowledge; though the information acquired is the same, the results are very different.

--- The last sentence makes a very strong and frightening point because sometimes we feel as though attending halaqas/islamic functions or reading beneficial books is indication that we're in 'good shape' ('eman shape').
Lest we forget that the knowledge is from Allah subhan wa ta'la and we benefit not from it of that is His will. I pray that Allah subhan wa ta'la makes us of those who's eman is strengthened by the beneficial knowledge and that we share that with others. Ameen.

Re: Don't Be Sad - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #1)

Gem: Page 279

** This gem is dedicated to all of those who have ever uttered the sentence, "it's not a diary, it's a journal!"

Take account of yourself

Keep a journal with you, and in it take account of your actions. Write down the negative aspects of your personality and actions, and then think of solutions to rid yourself of them.

Umar radi Allahu anhu said, "Take account of yourself before it is taken of you. Weigh your deeds before they are weighed for you (i.e. on the Day of Judgment) and beautify yourself (with good deeds)for the great display (on the Day of Judgment"

---- From a young age we are always taught to have a predetermined list of all of the things that we love about ourselves. I'm sure everyone can remember a time in grade school when you were asked to list 10 things you liked about yourself and if you found it hard you were either really shy or had "self-esteem" problems. But we're we ever taught to examine what about ourselves needed some tuning? To say, "I need to change this or that about myself"?
Just something I found interesting.

and Allah knows best

Re: Don't Be Sad - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #1)

Bismillah,

Stay Away From the Following Four (page 294)

The following four deeds bring misery to a person's heart, so avoid them:

1. Complaining and being angry with what Allah subhana wa ta'la has decreed
2. Committing sins without repenting afterwards.
3. Hating people for the blessings that Allah subhana wa ta'la has bestowed upon them.
4. Turning away from the remembrance of Allah subhana wa ta'la.
