Assalam u Alaikum Wr Wb ,
Who is the best of all humans ? He who has the PROVISION OF PIETY ! ^_^
Who takes this provision into account? To whom it may concern. Certainly , not to many of us. But actually to only those who have true fear of God , only those who keep reminding themselves of the Akhirah. This reminder how ever is taken for granted and sometimes not even bothered at all. & That is where the true problem lies.
Wondering where does our hearts lie? With ourselves or somewhere else , in the midst of some fantasy created by the media or the illusions that shaytaan actually diverts our mind to. Devil is actually very powerful , we can only have the idea of the devil when we try to divert our attention from something sinful to something more appropriate . The force of devil is so forceful than we forget our own selves. We try to leave a sin, the devil try to engage us into another. IF by any luck you are not engaging , it’ll make you do other sins through the people in your surrounding who are already sinful , and make your bashfulness as a big excuse. AS a result we stop loving , hating , for the sake of Allah Subhana wa’ ta’ala. Our love becomes the love of this dunya and not the love of Allah. It is really unfortunate that we keeps on living in the denial. WE do need help! We do need mercy. Point is what are we doing to get that mercy or that help? Our love for this dunya is far superior than anything else. Only we don’t realize it because we keep on denying the truth , the justice and give way to falsehood much easily. May Allah save us !
Happened today,and in the news, five daughters committed suicide because they were old sitting home and couldn’t get married. I know suicide is haraam , no matter what. I know this is absolutely no excuse for committing one either but Are they only ones who are sinful? I didn’t think so, it’s their father equally responsible. He’ll be asked! Only reason he gave was , he didn’t have enough money to marry his daughters. Does Islam not teach us simplicity? Do we have to gather our souls around the wealth ? Is there no man alive who pay heeds to a pious women rather than the money? Rather than the status or whatever worldly provisions there is that counts? Was there nobody for the daughters of that man who was pious enough to respect the ladies for their nobility? Questions and never ending questions in this regard..
Where is the world going? & Then they all complain about the bad that is happening around.. than they complain about the amount of sins increasing everywhere. I wonder why these sins should not occur? The people are becoming more prone to the love for money and have left the religion behind , even those who makes big statements about the religion. Reality check.
“The whole world is a provision, and the best object of benefit of the world is the pious woman.” (Sahih Muslim Hadith 3465 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As)
“A woman is married for four things, i.e., her wealth, her family status, her beauty and her religion. So you should marry the religious woman (otherwise) you will be a loser.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.27 Narrated by Abu Huraira )
Beautiful ahadith, conveying a lot of ways for creating beautiful marriages, and if read the true way of islamic nikaah , it’s the best way to avoid these kind of sins going on in our society. The more simple the marriages will be, the more it’ll be easier for every body , even for the rich . I wonder whether the norms even let us think about all those things while preparing for marriages.
May Allah guide us all to the righteous path and strengthen our souls . Ameen.
