Of Pearls and Reminders.

Abu Hafsat

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

It is my pleasure to share with you the following pearls and/or reminders, to guide us as we go through everyday life on the planet earth.... before death comes:--

(1) "The Zikr [remembrance] of Allah moistens the heart and cultivates tenderness in it.

     When the heart is bereft of Zikrullah, the heat of the nafs overtakes it; the fire of lust

  reaches it and it becomes barren and hard." - Sheikh Abu Abdullah at-Tirmidhi Hakeem.

(2) "Body is purified by water. Ego by tears. Intellect is purified by knowledge, and

     soul is purified with love."- Sayyadi Ali Ibn Abi Talib (R.A)

(3) "The truth of faith (Imaan) does not reach a man who does not possess 4 qualities:--

  a) Performance of compulsory duties along with Sunnat

b) Carefulness in eating [eat only Halal and avoid Haram]

c)  Giving up the prohibited things openly and secretly.

d) Observing those rules with patience until death."- Sayyadi Sahl Ibn Abdullah Tustari

(4) "Fear is like a candle whose flame helps a person distinguish good from evil, and fear of Allah

     allows a person to turn away from evil. Those who fear mere creatures flee from them; but those

   who fear Allah flee to Him."- Rabiya Basri.
