Āminah, the mother of the Prophet Muḥammad (ﷺ) said,
❝When I was pregnant, I never felt any difficulty from the start to the end of the pregnancy.❞
(Ibn Saʿd, Kitāb al-Tabaqāt al-Kabīr; vol. 1, pg. 98)
"Sit with the poor, and your gratefulness will increase."
Imam Ali (AS)
"Let not any Muslim belittle another Muslim, for the lowest of the Muslims is great in the Sight of Allaah."
Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq (radiAllaahu anhu) [Ihya’ ‘Ulum ad-Din, 3/400] (via abubakrassiddeeq)
The likeness of this worldly life (dunyâ) is that of a snake: soft to the touch, it will kill you with its poison. So turn away from what impresses you of it, since what stays with you is so little. And do not be concerned about it, since you are certain about its parting. And be most happy in it when you are most heedful of it; for every time its companion takes solace in one of its delights, it gives way to one of its woes.
Ali ibn Abi Taalib"
"That I give verdicts of justice and truth one day is more beloved to me than one year of battle.
Masrooq ibn Al-‘Ajda"
Inna lillahi wa inna illayhi rajioon. Brother Amr Kassem, husband of former Ameerah of Qabeelat Majd (AlMaghrib Toronto) was murdered yesterday during the unrest in Egypt. He left behind his wife, Asma and 9 month old daughter, Ruqayah. A support fund has been set up by AlMaghrib HQ for the family. Please share and donate inshaAllah http://www.gofundme.com/3yrfj4 And please remember the family in your duas.
Inna lilah wa inna ilayhi rajioun. This truly is heartbreaking.
Please donate to this fund and keep them, and everyone in Egypt, in your prayers. May Allah (swt) have mercy on them and the rest of this Ummah.
I ask You for patience during these times. I pray to You for strength for my family and I. I pray to You for wisdom in my deen and in this duniya for all my brothers and sisters in Islam as well as for myself. Insha’Allah I better myself before I return to You for only you have created and there is no one greater to be worshipped.
