So you, O my brother, should be (persistent) in joining the first row...


Shaikh Ibn al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

As for the men, whenever they precede (in joining the front rows), that is better for them; for the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم had warned against those who lag behind (in joining the front rows):

"If people will continue to lag behind, Allaah will put them at the back."
[Saheeh Muslim (878)]


This is dangerous! Whenever a person lags behind in joining the first row or the second or the third, he will find that Allaah تعالى has put in his heart the love of lagging behind in doing other righteous deeds (as well) – and Allaah’s refuge is sought from this.

This is why (he صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: "If people will continue to lag behind, Allaah will put them at the back."

So you, O my brother, should be (persistent) in joining the first row.





[Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen of Shaikh Ibn al-`Uthaymeen (5/111)]

Come to success



After ar-Rabi` bin Khaytham became partially paralyzed, he used to go to the mosque helped by two men.
He was told: O AbuYazid! You have been given permission to pray at home.

He said,

You have said the truth, but I heard the caller hearld, ‘Hayya `ala al-Falah (Come to success)’,
and I thought that whoever heras this call should answer it even by crawling.



[Hilyat al Awliya 2/113]



...



Abu Bakr bin Abdullah al Muzani said:

Who is like you, O son of Adam?
Whenever you wish, you use water to make Ablution, go to the place fo worship and thus enter the presence of your Lord (start praying) without a translator or a barrier between you and Him!



[Al Bidayah wa an Nihayah 9/256]




...




Abu Rajaa al `Ataridi said:

Nothing that I leave behind grieves me, except that I used to bow down on my face five times a day before my Lord, the Exalted and Most Honored.

Why their speech was so sweet?





It is reported that the son of Al-Fudayl ibn Ayyad رحمه الله said to his father:

Father! How sweet the speech of the Companions is!

Al-Fudayl said, “Son, do you know why it was so sweet?”

He replied, “No father, I do not.”

He said, “Because they sought Allah سبحانه وتعالى when they spoke.”

Why I forgave you?



بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ


Abu Bakr as-Saidalaani reported that he heard Salim bin Mansur bin ‘Ammar say,

“Upon seeing my father in a dream, I asked him, ‘What did your lord do with you?’

He answered : ‘Indeed, my lord drew me near and close and he said to me:‘O evil shaykh (old man), do you know why I forgave you?’

I said: ‘No, O my lord.’

He said : ‘You sat before people in a gathering one day and you made them cry. Among them was one of my slaves who had never before cried from fear of me and so I forgave him and forgave everyone in the gathering for him; and you were among the ones I donated to him (among the ones that I forgave for him)’

Self deception



Amongst the deluded are those who think that their obedience is greater than their sins.

This is because they do not take themselves into account or count their sins, but they count and remember a form of obedience that they practice, like one who practices Istighfaar with his tongue and glorifies Allah a hundred times daily, then backbites the Muslims and tears up their reputations, speaks with what Allah is not pleased with all day.


He continuously thinks about the virtues of the 'Tasbeehaat' and 'Tahleelaat' and pays no attention to the punishment of backbiting, lying and tale carrying and the other harms of the tongue. This is complete and utter deception."

...

"Such a deluded person is unaware that fasting Ramadaan and praying the five daily prayers are superior to and more dignified than fasting on 'Arafah or 'Aashuraa, and they only expiate the sins committed between them if the major sins are avoided.


So the fasting of Ramadaan to Ramadaan and the Jum'ah prayer to the Jum'ah prayer can not expiate minor sins except if the major sins are abandoned in addition to that, so the two of these strengthen one another to expiate the minor sins.

Don't let him win

"Allaah never orders anything
except that Satan takes two contradictory stances towards it:


either shortcoming and negligence
or overzealousness and exaggeration.


It does not matter [to him] by which of these two mistakes he becomes victorious over the slave." -

Seekers of knowlege


Jaabir (radiAllahuanho) narrated

that Allah's Messenger (salAllahualyhewasalm) said:

Do not acquire knowledge in order to compete with the scholars,

nor to argue with the ignorant,

nor to gain mastery over the gatherings.

Since whoever does that, then: The Fire! The Fire!

The only regret for the people of paradise
...

The only regret for the people of paradise will be the time they wasted for anything other than seeking the pleasure of Allah Azza wa Jall.



It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (radiAllahuanhu) that the Prophet (SalAllahu alehay wa-sallam) said:

“No people sit in a gathering in which they do not remember Allah or send blessings upon the Prophet (SalAllahu alehay wa-sallam),

but it will be a source of regret for them on the Day of Resurrection,
even if they entered Paradise as a reward.”




(Narrated by Ahmad 2/463)

....



The most harmful time waster


The most harmful time waster for the seeker of knowledge is when he has no interest except finding out about people, what they are saying and what they are doing, with regard to a matter that does not concern him. This undoubtedly stems from a weakness of commitment to Islam, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:


مِنْ حُسْنِ إِسْلَامِ الْمَرْءِ تَرْكُهُ مَا لَا يَعْنِيهِ

Part of a person’s being a good Muslim is leaving alone that which does not concern him.(*)



Focusing on who said what and asking a lot of questions is a waste of time. In fact it is a kind of sickness which if it affects a person – we ask Allah to keep us safe and sound – will become his main focus and concern and he may end up showing a hostile attitude towards one who does not deserve enmity, or he may be friendly towards one who does not deserve friendship, because of his interest in these matters that are distracting him from seeking knowledge, on the grounds that this is part of supporting the truth.

But that is not the case; rather this comes under the heading of being distracted by that which does not concern one. But if news comes to you without you seeking it or looking for it, everyone receives news but you should not be preoccupied with it or focus on it, because this causes distraction for the seeker of knowledge and may confuse him, and it opens the door to partisanship and division amongst the ummah.

For the tongue does not keep quiet at all...


It is the (nature of the) soul; if you do not preoccupy it with truth, it will occupy you with falsehood.

It is the (nature of the) heart; if you do not accommodate it with love of Allah, it will dwell with love of creation and this is a certain reality.

It is the (nature of the) tongue, if you do not preoccupy it with remembrance, it will most definitely occupy you with frivolity.



Thus, choose for your own self one of the two courses and confer upon it one of the two standings.”

It was narrated from Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him)
that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said:

“Whoever says سبحان الله العظيم وبحمده

(Glory and praise be to Allah, the Almighty),

a palm tree will be planted for him in Paradise.”


Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (3464) It was classed as saheeh (authentic) by al-Albani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (hadeeth no. 64).

Size of tree

The Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) conveyed an impression of its size when he said that "In Paradise there is a tree which the rider of a swift horse would need one hundred years to pass beneath"


[Bukhaari, Kitaab ar-Riqaaq]


And in the narration of Muslim from Abu Hurayrah and Sahl ibn Sa'd it is said that "In Paradise there is a tree under whose shade a traveller could travel for one hundred years and not reach the edge of it"

[Muslim, Kitaab al-Jannah]



....

Trunk of tree


One of the wondrous things that the Messenger of Allah (saw) told us is that the trunks of the trees are gold:

"There is no tree in Paradise that does not have a trunk made of gold"


[Ibn Hibbaan, at-Tirmidhi, al-Bayhaqee, from Abu Hurayrah, Saheeh al-Jaami' as-Sagheer 5/150 saheeh]

وعن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏ "‏لقيت إبراهيم صلى الله عليه وسلم ليلة أسري بي، فقال‏:‏ يا محمد أقرئ أمتك مني السلام، وأخبرهم أن الجنة طيبة التربة، عذبة الماء، وأنها قيعان، وأن غراسها‏:‏ سبحان الله، والحمد لله، ولا إله إلا الله، والله أكبر‏"‏‏.‏ رواه الترمذي وقال حديث حسن‏.‏



 Messenger of Allah(صلى الله عليه وسلم‏)said

"I met Ibrahim(ﷺ)
  on the Night of Ascension (Al-Asra),
and he said to me: 'O Muhammad, صلى الله عليه وسلم convey my greetings to your Ummah,
and tell them that Jannah has a vast plain of pure soil and sweet water.
It is a plain levelled land.
The plants grow there by uttering: سبحان الله، والحمد لله، ولا إله إلا الله، والله أكبر
