Do Not Despair – Muhammad Al-Mukhtar Ash-Shinqitee

“O my sons! Go you and enquire about Yusuf (Joseph) and his brother, and never give up hope of Allah’s Mercy. Certainly no one despairs of Allah’s Mercy, except the people who disbelieve.” Surah Yusuf, ayah 87

Friendship – Muhammad Mukhtar Ash-Shinqitee

For all of the times that you felt alone on the road to righteousness…


Some of the righteous predecessors said: Your being alone on the path to what you seek, is a proof of your sincerity in seeking that thing.”

Test yourself: speak good or stay quiet

Rasul Allah, sal Allah alayhi wa sallam, said, “Anyone who
believes in Allah and the Last Day (of Judgment) should not harm
his neighbor. Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day
should host his guest generously. And anyone who believes in
Allah and the Last Day should say what is good or keep quiet.”
– Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 47

[Lessons from this Hadith]
Did you send out a bad mouthed email to someone recently? Did
you post something in a chat room or forum that you shouldn’t
have? You are Muslim, so make sure whatever comes out of your
mouth is something that will bring you closer to Allah. If it’s
not, then keep quiet. Test yourself, for the next 3 days, before
you say anything, ask yourself, “Is this something good to say?”
