70,000 angels in procession….

Sayyidina Ka’b al-Ahbar (radi Allahu ‘anhu) said:

Not a day goes by without seventy thousand angels descending upon the Rawdha of the Prophet ﷺ, surrounding him and sending salawat upon him until night falls. When they ascend another such group of angels take their place and do the same; until when the earth splits open before him ﷺ, he comes out with 70,000 angels in procession around him.

Five Wisdoms….

islam_wisdom_logo

1. If we are right, then there is no need to get angry.
And if we are wrong then we don’t have any right to get angry.

2. Patience with family is love
Patience with others is respect.
Patience with self is confidence.

3. Never think hard about past, It brings tears.
Don’t think more about future, It brings fears.
Live this moment with a smile, It brings cheers…

4. Every test in our life makes us bitter or better.
Every problem comes to make us or break us.
Choice is ours, whether we become victim or victorious.

5. Search a beautiful heart, not a beautiful face.
Beautiful things are not always good, but good things are always beautiful.

Hazrat Hassan Al-Basri (Alaihi Al Rahma) Impresses An Unbelieving Neighbour

Hazrat Hasan al-Basri (AR) bonce fell sick. His neighbour, an unbeliever, came to pay him a visit.

“O Imam,” he exclaimed, “I detect a bad smell.” The Imam told him it was caused by illness, but the neighbour insisted: “That is not the odor of sickness. It is a lavatory smell. For the love of Allah, tell me what it is!”
He had not noticed that sewage was leaking from his house into that of the Imam.

When the neighbour pressed him, the Imam finally said: “For some months your drain has been seeping through to our side. I tried to fix it, but without success.”
His neighbour asked why he had not told him before, but the venerable Imam said: “I might have offended you.”

The unbeliever was so impressed by this ethical refinement that he was ennobled with True Faith, for he recognized the Imam’s morality as a ray of Islam.

Story using very bad language

Mahmud was a very pious man, but he was not very attractive looking. One day, he was walking along the road, minding his own business, when a lady came up to him, and started calling him names and abusing him. This lady kept saying all kinds of nasty things, and Mahmud just listened to her patiently. Finally, when she was finished calling him names and abusing him, Mahmud just greeted her, smiled, and said

“and a nice day to you,” and continued on his way.

Why did Mahmud, the pious man, behave this way?

It is because he knew that everything she said was just a reflection of her own inner self.

If you use bad language, you are just making obvious to everybody how far away you really are from Allah, since your words are in reality a reflection of your own inner self.
