One of the most important etiquette procedures that must accompany the performance of du’a is to be determined in one’s request.
Anas ibn Malik narrates that the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) said:
“When one of you makes a du’a, then let him be firm and determined in his du’a, and let him not say, ‘O Allah! If You will, then please forgive me’, for there is no one who can force Allah to do anything” [Narrated by ...Read Full Post »

The prophet - peace and blessing upon him - said :
“No one will enter jannah (heaven) for his deeds ('بعمله') ! ”.
People said : “even you, messenger of Allah ?”

So, how to concord between this hadeeth and the other texts indicating that a person will enter Jannah for his actions ?

The Ignorant complains about Allah to people, and this is considered to be the utmost ignorance from both the complainer and the one who is being complained to, because if this complainer knows Allah well, then he won’t complain about Allah. Also if he knows people well, then he won’t ever complain to them. Some of the Salaf (Worthy Ancestors) saw a man complaining to another his dear need and poverty, he told him: O man, I swear that you benefit nothing except that...Read Full Post »

Al-Kirizi (a poet) once said:
‘And do not walk upon the earth except in humbleness, For how many people underneath it are more exalted than you! If you are in glory, goodness and strength, Then how many have died that were more stronger than you.’
Allah said in the Quran:
Turn not thy cheek in scorn toward folk, nor walk with pertness in the land. Lo! Allah loveth not each braggart boaster. Be modest in thy...Read Full Post »

Why Akhlaaq (Manners) are so important in Islam?
First let's see what did the Quran and the Prophet say about Akhlaaq:
The Prophet, in Muwatta Imam Malik said: "Verily, I was sent for no other reason,except to perfect the noble traits of character'' - in other words; one of the Prophet's goals, in fact, the primary mission was the perfection of how people behave - their manners.
A Muslim can't be a true Muslim if he does his Ibadaat (wo...Read Full Post »

And on the issue of Gheerah, Ibn al-Qayyim, Rahimahullaah, said,
“And the Dayyouth (the man with no jealousy over the women in his family) is the most vile of Allah’s creation, and Jannah is for...Read Full Post »

Anger is one of the evil whispers of Shaytaan, which leads to so many evils and tragedies, of which only Allaah knows their full extent. For this reason Islam has a great deal to say about this bad characteristic, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) described cures for this "disease" and ways to limit its effects, among which are the following:
(1) Seeking refuge with Allaah from the Shaytaan...Read Full Post »

Acknowledging your shortcomings is one of the first steps in disciplining yourself.
Whoever acknowledges that he has shortcomings has started on the path to self-discipline. This acknowledgement is one of the things that make us discipline ourselves and be persistent in doing so. This acknowledgement should not put you off disciplining yourself. It is a sign of Allaah’s care when a person tries to change himself and develop, as ...Read Full Post »
