Prime Real Estate!!

November 14, 2008

Rasul Allah, sal Allah alayhi wa sallam, said, “Amongst the
beautiful (characteristics) of a person’s Islam is that he pays
no heed to that which does not concern him.”
– Tirmidhi

[Lessons from this Hadith]
Your mind is PRIME real estate. If you had a piece of land
right beside the greatest world attraction, wouldn’t you open the
most amazing store on it?

Your brain and your life is more precious then that peice of
land. Only build on it that which concerns your success in this
life and the next.

For the next seven day, ask yourself this question daily, “Am I
using my time right now towards that which benefits me?”

With best wishes to see you succeed at the highest level!
– Muhammad Alshareef


There is another hadeeth, I read a while back and I have been meaning to talk about here but I just haven’t found the chance to do so yet…inshaAllah I will soon though ๐Ÿ™‚

I miss waking up early for a fresh doese of hadeeth read to me by Sheikh Yasir Qadhi and Yaser Birjas…I really do…May Allah reward them..

Fiqh is Cool :)

November 10, 2008

So, I’m trying to frantically finish the Ilm Summit Fiqh assignment now (procrastination at its best!) and I came across these sayings that a person can say when they are performing Wudu’. I thought they were really cool mashaAllah and I’m hoping that,ย inshaAllah, I can remember them (at least in meaning if not word for word)…

InshaAllah I will translate them later (after I submit the assignment!)

A Sweet Memory

October 27, 2008

Many people asked how it went…what it was all about…and if it was worth it…

All I do is smile in reply…and here’s why…

A speech I wrote for the end of Ilm Summit…”truly, it changed my life”..
ุจุณู… ุงู„ู„ู‡ ุงู„ุฑุญู…ู† ุงู„ุฑุญูŠู…ุงู„ุณู„ุงู… ุนู„ูŠูƒู… ูˆ ุฑุญู…ุฉ ุงู„ู„ู‡ ูˆ ุจุฑูƒุงุชู‡ …

As students of knowledge, it serves us a great reminder to reflect on what we are told by Allah azza wa jal in surat Al-Baqarah verse 32 when the angels said:

They replied: “Limitless art Thou in Thy glory! No knowledge have we save that which Thou hast imparted unto us. Verily, Thou alone art all-knowing, truly wise.”

(ู‚ูŽุงู„ููˆุงู’ ุณูุจู’ุญูŽุงู†ูŽูƒูŽ ู„ุงูŽ ุนูู„ู’ู…ูŽ ู„ูŽู†ูŽุง ุฅูู„ุงูŽู‘ ู…ูŽุง ุนูŽู„ูŽู‘ู…ู’ุชูŽู†ูŽุง ุฅูู†ูŽู‘ูƒูŽ ุฃูŽู†ุชูŽ ุงู„ู’ุนูŽู„ููŠู…ู ุงู„ู’ุญูŽูƒููŠู…ู (2:32

I recall aimlessly reading my textbooks in a weak attempt to study for finals. My mind was racing with thoughts of Ilm Summit and my heart beat with fear at the mere thought of being denied entrance. Five months later, here I am Alhamdulillah, trying to grasp at some eloquent words in hope of doing some justice in recounting this one of a kind journey.

As I look forward to and anticipate the next few days (ุนู„ู‰ ุฃุญุฑ ู…ู† ุงู„ุฌู…ุฑ) as they say in Arabic, I also look back at the days and hours left behind, and like anyone can imagine, I regret not using my time more wisely.

May Allah make it a cleansing journey for His sake only. May all the students gain utmost knowledge and benefit from this great opportunity. May Allah help us in conveying what we learn to the best of our abilities…May Allah bring benefit from our actions and put barakah in everything that we do…May everything we do and intend to do be for His sake…and may Allah accept our good deeds and forgive our shortcomings…
