DO CONTINUALLY REFLECT INTO OUR HEARTS

Do continually reflect into our hearts
Because it is a source of good and evil
A receptacle for disbelief and belief
Something to be fought for between the angels and demons
The heart, its feelings is delicate
Its touch could not be felt
But it greatly affects our lives
Whoever is well versed with the journey of his heart
Understands its goodness and evilness
And seriously struggle to remove his evilness
And immediately replace it with goodness
That person will be safe from the trickery of the devil and the world
Many people do not understand the journey of their hearts including the scholars
They simply accept the good and the bad
And then to feel that everything is good
And no longer feels sinful
Here is where the need for guidance from a spiritual teacher
who knows the heart of human beings

KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT GUIDANCE

When knowledge is given
Without guidance
Even if there is guidance, it is incomplete
Human beings may succeed to become clever and competent people
They are developed in various aspects of life
Their living facilities are very comfortable indeed
Their material civilization are awesome
However, with the progress, there is jealousy
With luxury, kindness is missing
Human beings become arrogant, haughty and selfish
Human beings tend to show off, seeking for name and glamor
Humanity is ruined, tolerance is destroyed
Society becomes very individualistic
Crimes occur day in day out
Fraternity disappears, love and care is ruined
Finally, with progress and development, life is full of fear
With civilization, fear and anxiety invading daily
In the end, human beings lose their happiness
Therefore, knowledge should be simple, guidance must be perfect
If knowledge is abundant, while guidance is complete, that is the most favorable
At this present time, while searching for knowledge, guidance is neglected
As a result, many human beings appear to be very intelligent
But their personal character, more like animals and satan
Or the least, the way they live are liken to the trees in the forest.

WORDS OF WISDOM

A few basic acts of worship performed without worldly love are considered more significant than abundance in worship but performed with full of worldly love.

Generally, the truth is hard to put into practice but once observed it gives a fulfilling experience.
An evil act is easy to accomplish but it will never bring any spiritual contentment.

If the truth seems bitter for us to take, simply assume it to be a medicine. Most bitter medicine helps to cure illness, isn’t that so?

Hardships are necessary for guidance in our journey in life.

Many are aware of diseases but they do not know how to cure them. Many are aware of problems but they do not know how to solve them.

Human beings are well aware that beyond youth is old age. But during their youth they forget that old age will appear later on. They then spend their energy and time during their younger days as if their youth lasts forever. When old age appears, they regret and wish that they could return to their youth to redeem all the years they have wasted. Alas, their dreams are mere dreams, an endless regret.

To love our own self until we become too selfish means we are destroying ourselves but we do not realize the fact that we are the cause of the self destruction. Being selfish means we hate our own self without realizing it.

O Allah, I have two dreadful enemies, both are invisible i.e Satan and my own nafs. The closest enemy and the most dangerous is nafs which is within me. It is more dangerous than the condemned satan as it is the pathway for satan.
I seek Your protection against the evil deeds of my own nafs and satan. You are my Only Protector, please help me O Allah. Ameen

ABU MUHAMMAD

 

TESTS AFFLICTED UPON US ARE FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSE

 

 

Tests afflicted on a person
the purpose is not the same
Sometimes the tests that God afflict on a servant
is because of His curse
as the servant has been too disobedient
Sometimes with the purpose of eliminating his sins
as the person has struggled to avoid sins but he is still gets involved with sins
Sometimes with the purpose
of elevating one’s status
because of his righteousness and deep faith
Quite a number are tested with the purpose of alerting them
To give them enlightenment and guidance
If the tests are afflicted upon us
We do not know for which purpose it is for us
Therefore, as being polite and respectful with God
Since we are His servants
We should relate the tests that we received are because of our sins
or because of His wrath
So that we will always be in repentance towards Him
This is a safe way for us
