Shaykh Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Hussainy an Ninowy - Tasting the sweetness of Imaan, Al-Mustafa Centre

The most beautiful lecture on imaan and a very insightful lecture i have ever come across in English.

Poetry from the needle of heart

Mann murshid misbah e hikmat astan
Mann sawal e maridistan shudan
Mann khuskar zhud bhud
Sangheen nabhud asaan bhud

Jalal al-khawatir -Removal of cares

Your involvement in this world requires that you have a righteous intention [niyya saliha], otherwise you deserve to be viewed with disgust.  In all your affairs and undertakings you must say:  "There is no power, nor is there any strength, except through Allah, the High, the Almighty."  You should set aside one hour for your worldly interests, one hour for your interest in the hereafter, one hour for your personal concerns, and one hour for the benefit of your family, then dedicate all the remaining hours to your Lord (Almighty and Glorious is He).  You must concentrate first of all on the cleanliness [tahara] of your heart, for this is an obligatory duty [farida].  Then turn your attention to deeper knowledge [ma'rifa].  If you miss the root, your preoccupation with the branch will not be accepted of you.  there is no benefit in cleanliness of the physical parts of the body combined with defilement of the heart.  You must cleanse your physical limbs and organs by following the Sunna, and your heart by putting the Qur'an into practice.  Take care of your heart, so that your physical body will be taken care of.  Every vessel exudes its own contents.  Whatever is in your heart will ooze out from you through your physical parts

Qawl al chistiyah

It was the night of summer where I was having a conversation with my shaykh.I wanted to know the aqeeqah of syedinna rasulallah salellahualaihiwasalam as whether does he comes in any of the person's dream on his own will or by the will of Allah.

The answer to my question was answered in a very eloquent manner.Syedinna rasulallah salellahualaihiwasalam comes in the dream by the will of Allah.If Allah does not wish for it then nothing can happen.Neither can syedinna rasulallah salellahualaihiwasalam come in the dream.

Discourse on the Wird as-Sahl by Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir as-Sufi

- Cleansing the Heart - Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir as-Sufi

A Short clip of Shaykh of tarbiyah Dr Abdalqadir as-sufi rahimullah alai

The meaning of the dua of Rabia al basri

O Allah! If I worship You for fear of Hell, burn me in Hell,

The hell is the punishment of Allah, an anger of Allah.We have to realize this that hell will be the anger of Allah.Now take an example of a coward man.His father becomes really furious about his cowardliness.He gives his son a final warning that either he goes to war with fellow men or be killed at his father's hands.By the fear of his father.He goes to war.In the war he hides here and there.Does not kill anybody, because of the fear of his life and if he goes back then his father will kill him.He stays in the battlefield thinking about his father's word.As soon as the war ends, he goes back to his father.

Is he a soldier?

Certainly not.He is going to war by the fear of father's anger.Similarly a real worshiper does not worships by the fear of hell.

and if I worship You in hope of Paradise, exclude me from Paradise. 

The Paradise is a reward of Allah, which shows that Allah has agreed with you.We have to realize this that paradise will be the reward of Allah.Now let us take an example.A laudator speaks the praises after praises for the king, he speaks not because he wants to praise but he does because he wants the reward from the king.Is he really praising then?Certainly not.He should speak because he wants to praise not because he wants rewards.

But if I worship You for Your Own sake, 
grudge me not Your everlasting Beauty.

This is the real worship.Worship Allah for what Allah is, not for jannah or jahannum.Because  Allah who wishes for jahannum can put you in jahannum even though you have loads of good deeds.And Allah who wishes for jannah can put you in jannah even though you don't have any good deeds.

Indeed we can pray to save our self from grudge of Allah .But worship Allah for the sake of Allah.Later on you can pray to Allah that oh Allah save me from hell fire or put me in jannah.

The Humanness of the Messenger of Allah

The life-pattern of the Messenger of Allah (peace be on him) is a perfect example for every human being. When he was in private he would worship his Lord with such intense devotion, standing for long hours in salat, that his feet would become swollen; in matters pertaining to truth or justice he did not care about anyone's opinion, seeking only the pleasure of Allah. But in his living habits and dealings with people he was a human being, enjoying good things, participating in small talk, smiling and joking, yet never departing from the truth. The Prophet (peace be on him) liked happiness and disliked grief; he sought refuge with Allah from difficulties and troubles which result in sorrow, supplicating, "O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from distress and grief (Reported by Abu Daoud.) Concerning his sense of humor, it is reported that once an old woman came to him, saying, "O Messenger of Allah, pray to Allah that He admit me to the Garden." The Prophet (peace be on him) said, "O mother of such a person, no old woman will enter the Garden." The woman broke down and wept, supposing that she would not enter Paradise. The Prophet (peace be on him) then explained to her that no old woman would enter the Garden as an old woman, for Allah would restore her youth and admit her to the Garden as a young virgin. He then recited to her the verse, We created them as a (new) creation, and made them virgins, lovers, friends. (56: 35-37)(Reported by 'Abd bin Humaid and al-Tirmidhi.)

The Prophet (peace be on him) once wrestled with a man called Rukanah who was well known for his strength, throwing him down more than once. (Reported by Abu Daoud.) In another report of this incident, the Prophet (peace be on him) started wrestling with him. As the fight was hard, Rukanah said, "A sheep for a sheep." (This must have occurred before the prohibition of gambling, or perhaps the Prophet (peace be on him) did not accept the bet and hence did not enforce its terms.) The Prophet (peace be on him) then threw him. The man said, "The same again." The Prophet (peace be on him) threw him again, and the man said, "The same again." The Prophet (peace be on him) threw him a third time. The man then said, "What shall I tell my wife? One sheep was eaten by the wolf, one ran away, but what about the third" Then the Prophet(peace be on him) said,

"We are not going to defeat you and take something from you as well. Take your sheep!"
