““He is the mαn who will choose you because of the womαn you αre, not becαuse of a tight jeαns or α short dress. He is the mαn who will αppreciαte your loose Hijαb even before seeing you with beαutiful hαircut, αttrαctive clothes αnd mαke-up. He is the mαn who lowered his gαze so that you become the only womαn he sees. He is the mαn who chose you to be his gift from Allαh for fighting temptαtions of other women. He is the mαn who preserved his heαrt for you, only you so thαt you cαn live in it peαcefully. He is the mαn whose love will mαke you stronger, He is your gift from Allαh (subhana wa tala) in sha’Allαh.”
“Rasullullah (peace be upon him) prayed while the world of humans was asleep, he invoked God while his brothers and sisters despaired, and he remained patient and steadfast in the face of adversity and insult while so many beings turned away.”—Reflection on The Prophet’s Life (via raudie)
“One day while we were sitting with the messenger of Allah there appeared before us a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black; no signs of journeying were to be seen on him and none of us knew him. He walked up and sat down by the prophet.
Resting his knees against his and placing the palms of his hands on his thighs, he said: “O Muhammed, tell me about Islam”. The messenger of Allah said: “Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and Muhammed is the messenger of Allah, to perform the prayers, to pay the zakat, to fast in Ramadhan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House if you are able to do so.” He said:”You have spoken rightly”, and we were amazed at him asking him and saying that he had spoken rightly.
He said: “Then tell me about eman.”He said:”It is to believe in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day, and to believe in divine destiny, both the good and the evil thereof.” He said:”You have spoken rightly”.
He said: “Then tell me about ehsan.” He said: “It is to worship Allah as though you are seeing Him, and while you see Him not yet truly He sees you”. He said: “Then tell me about the Hour”. He said: “The one questioned about it knows no better than the questioner.”
He said: “Then tell me about its signs.” He said: “That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress and that you will see the barefooted, naked, destitute herdsman competing in constructing lofty buildings.” Then he went off and I stayed for a while. Then he said: “O Omar, do you know who the questioner was?” I said: “Allah and His messenger know best”. He said: “He was Jebreel (Gabriel), who came to you to teach you your religion.”“ Subhanallah! Allahu akbar!
“The closest that a slave comes to his Lord is during the middle of the latter portion of the night (3-4am, best). If you can be among those who remember Allah the Exalted One at that time, then do so.” (At-Tirmidhi)
