May Allah Ta’ala grant the reader the best of both world’s and make the journey on this path easy and clear for you inshaAllah. Aameen.
Receiving compliments constantly about our writings, knowledge, akhlaaq( character), appearance, etc can easily bring pride within oneself.
It can take away the good intentions we initially had at the beginning and make us become proud of what we do or who we are. It would make us want to do things in future for fame and the compliments.
Remember that it is Allah Ta’ala who is giving us the ability to think on such levels, it is Allah Ta’ala who is granting us such knowledge to speak at such levels, it is Allah Ta’ala who has blessed us with beautiful features. Nothing is done/achieved solely by ourselves.
Everything that happens is by the taqdeer of Allah Ta’ala, so when we receive compliments in future, let us include our creator The Most Merciful inshaAllah.
We should always renew our intentions before, whist, and after doing a deed.
By doing so it will ensue that pride doesn’t settle in our hearts so easily and make us oblivious of Allah Ta’ala’s ni’mats.
We should always be grateful and make Shukr for whatever special qualities we have been bestowed with and the most important gift to make Shukr for is the gift of Imaan.
This humble servant of Allah Ta’ala hereby informs you that whatever this blog contains is what I have written Alhumdulillah though the help of Allah Ta’ala and my shaikh Mufti Siraj Desai.
We underestimate the power of gossip… We don't think of the consequences… We don't realise the ripple effects of one single conversation spent slandering someone….especially if its speculation and if you have seen something with your own eyes, it still does not justify spreading it around..
Its most likely… None of our business in any case…
You know what else we don't think about?
If someone is truly whatever you say they are… Then you're heedlessly benefitting them when you speak of them… When you use profanity and curse them…you're wiping their slate clean….
Someone that has hurt you so dreadfully doesn't deserve their sins wiped away…. And yet YOU are the one aiding them?
The only way you can ensure they pay for their wrongdoings is to pray and leave it to Allah… Cry to ease your anguish… But don't curse them and don't speak of what you would want them to be accountable for…
Would you really want them smiling on the Day of Judgement instead of being punished? .. Just because you couldn't stop talking about their misdeeds….
Think my sisters… Just let's pause and think about the wisdom of why Allah tells us that gossiping is like eating the flesh of your brother… We need to take heed for our own benefits..
We really need to just keep silent about things that are irrelevant to us.
Be the person that silences gossip mongers..
Be the person that walks away from people who prefer “eating the flesh of others”
Be the person where gossip stops…
Today someone else is the topic of hot gossip…. Tomorrow your name could be on their lips…
Whether someone is right or wrong…. A Muslim knows that there is a justices system with a Divine judge… And since Allah is All Knowing…. You don't even have to justify a thing…
