True Love #1 & #3

Anas bin Malik (ra) reported that the Prophet (saw) said, “There are three qualities whoever has them, will taste the sweetness of iman: To love Allah and His Messenger (saw) more than anyone else; to love a slave (of Allah) only for (the sake of) Allah; and to hate returning to infidelity after Allah has saved him from it as he would hate to be thrown into the fire (of Hell).”

True love #1 is to love Allah before men. To love Allah with zero conditions and to be attached to Him and only Him, not your spouse, not your kids and not even the dunya.

True love #3 is to love someone for the sake of Allah. I mean obviously the hadith doesn't apply to just spouses. But imagine being married and loving your spouse purely for the sake of Allah (not for the sake of love, lust or your desire sake) - can it get any more beautiful than that? T.T

(The best way to love a lady 
Is to keep your distance from her. 
Then approach her wali. 
And make dua for her.)

I am sorry - Ghuraba

Please forgive me.

To start off, I just want to ask for sincere forgiveness from everyone - whoever that is reading this post, yeap that includes YOU, if I ever hurt you in any way, if I ever said things directly or indirectly, intentionally or unintentionally or if I ever influenced you in a bad way, if I ever backbit or slandered you, I truly am sorry. Please forgive me. Or if I owe you money that I have forgotten, do let me know insha Allah. Let's start over a new leaf. New us. New tomorrow. For the better. For His sake only.


Ghuraba - What is Ghuraba?

I wish to be one of the ghuraba insha Allah, that's why I've changed my display name to 'Ghuraba' ;) bukan perasan (takut jugak perasan) but insha Allah let's strive to be that ghuraba our beloved prophet Muhammad (saw) talked about in the hadith below :

“Islam began as something strange, and it shall return to being something strange, so give glad tidings to the strangers (ghuraba).” [narrated by Muslim]

Jyeaaah, LET'S DO THIS!

The Hadith I'll Never Forget

Narrated Abu Huraira Radhi Allahu Anhu: I heard Allah's Messenger Salallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam saying : The first of the people whose case will be decided on the Day of Judgement will be a man who died as a martyr. He will be brought forth. Allah will make him know about His blessings (which He bestowed on him in the world). The man will acknowledge them, Then Allah will ask him: What did you do with them? He will say : I fought in Your way until I died as a martyr, Allah will remark : You are lying. You fought so that you may be called a brave warrior. Then orders will be passed against him. So he will be dragged along on his face and cast into Hell.

Second will be a man who studied religious knowledge. Then he taught it to others and recited Qur'an. He will be brought for judgement. Allah will remind him of His favours (showered on him in the world). He will admit them. (having enjoyed them in his life) Then Allah will ask him: What did you do with them? He will reply : I acquired knowledge and imparted it and also recited the Qur'an for Your sake. Allah will observe : You have told a lie, for you got knowledge to be renowned as a scholar; and you recited the Qur'an to be marked as a Qari (one who recited the Qur'an according to the rules). Then orders will be passed against him. So he will be dragged along on his face and thrown into Hell.

Third will be a man to whom Allah had made abundantly rich and granted him every kind of wealth. He will be brought for judgement. Allah will let him know about His gifts conferred upon him in the world. He will recognize them. Then Allah will inquire : What did you do with them? He will say : I left no way in which you like money to be spent without spending in it for Your sake. Allah will say : You are lying. You did so to be described as generous (in the society) ; (It means you got your reward in the world according to your intention*). Now you deserve nothing in the Hereafter except Hell). So orders will be passed against him and he will be dragged along on his face until he will be hurled into Hell.

Reported by Muslim and Nasa'i

Subhan'Allah, how scary is that? Therefore, let us all renew our intentions of doing every single thing, for Him and His sake only. May all our actions in the dunya benefit us in the hereafter. Ameen.
