Some interpreters said: "After Cain had killed his brother, he carried him on his back for a full year (not knowing what to do with his brother's corpse!)."

Allah's Messenger (Peace be upon him) said:
"There is no sin more recurring punishment (very rapidly) in the present life,
along with what awaits for its doer in the Hereafter, than transgression and
severing the ties of relationship.
"

Gem:

Subhan'Allah!

In the night journey hadith that can be found in Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa salam said: "So the gates opened and we went over the nearest heaven and there we saw a man sitting with some people on his right and some on his left. When he looked towards his right he laughed and when he looked towards his left he wept. Then he said, 'Welcome! Oh pious Prophet and pious son!' I asked Jibril: 'who is he?' He replied: 'He is Adam and the people on his right and left are the souls of his offspring. Those on his right are the people of paradise and the people on his left are the people of hell and when he looks towards his right he laughs and when he looks towards his left he weeps."

And Allah knows best

Re: Stories of the Qur'an (ibn Katheer) - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #2)

Assalamu alaikom...

I've read the same book in danish, - stories of the Quraan of Ibn Kathir.

The only story that really has left a reflection on me, is the story of the people of Sabbaat. Beautiful story with a lesson!

I was so sad that I've read it so fast....

Wa alaikom asalaam..

Re: Stories of the Qur'an (ibn Katheer) - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #2)

I love the story of the people of the Cave. Subhan'Allah, every Friday, before one embarks towards the masjid, it is from the Sunnah that we read that story (and the entire Surah) and reflect over it. And once, after I read the surah, I discovered something unique about the story of the people of the Cave. I was so excited to have discovered something (perhaps minor to the naked eye, but major to myself) I rushed to call AkheeAB and inform him of my lastest Quranic discovery..(AB, remember )

Great book though.

Re: Stories of the Qur'an (ibn Katheer) - Al-Maghrib BNBC (Book #2)

Subhan'Allah, these gems are long overdue..so here they are. Just some points that made me stop and really think. (Masha'Allah, the book was full of them)

Bismillah

Gem (1):
"Almighty Allah says: {and this none shall attain except those who are
As-Sabirun (the patient in following the truth)}, i.e. this -advice, saying
and high determination regarding the Hereafter in presence of the joys of this present life -none shall attain except those who were guided and those whose hearts were fixed and minds made stable by the Grace of Allah the Almighty. And, nothing is better than the saying of some of our earlier scholars who said:"Verily, Allah loves penetrative insight in time of suspicious matters and perfect reasoning in time of the presence of lusts"."

Gem (2):
"A Very Important Question:
If it is said: How does the previously-mentioned Hadith -that was agreed upon - denote that they will be treated as ransom for the Believers on the Day of Resurrection and that they will enter Hellfire, while no Messengers were sent to them and Allah the Almighty says: {And We never punish until We have sent a Messenger (to give warning)} (Al-Isra', 15)"

Gem (3):
"...But, Allah the Almighty says: {Did he not know that Allah had destroyed
before him generations, men who were stronger than him in might and
greater in the amount (of riches) they had collected? But the Mujrimun
(criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners) will not be questioned of
their sins (because Allah knows them well, so they will be punished
without being called to account)}. (Al-Qasas, 78)"

Gem (4):
"{Do they think that in wealth and children with which We enlarge
them. We hasten unto them with good things. Nay, [it is a Fitnah (trial)
in this worldly life so that they will have no share of good things in the
Hereafter] but they perceive not}. (Al-Mu'minun, 55, 56)"

Gem (5):
"{He (Allah) is the Best for reward and the Best for the final end}, i.e. trading with Allah is better than anything else as He gives the best of all rewards and with Him rests the best of all ends and goals."

Gem (6):
"(a) One should not sell himself out to the luxuries of this present life of ours and should not be deluded thereof. Moreover, one should trust what is in Allah's Hand more than what is in his own hand. One should put his entire trust in Allah Alone. Obedience of Allah should be one's first and final goal. Anyone who prefers anything to Allah and His obedience surely will be tormented thereof.
(b) One should whole-heartedly accept the advice of his compassionate brother, as in rejecting his counselor advice there rests complete destruction and perfect ruin.
(c) Regretting goes in vain if the Divine Decree is already done."
