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

THE IMPORTANCE OF SAYING A PRAYER OR INVOCATION

Let us say our prayer or invocation to God
it is a sign our humbleness towards Him
Let us ask Him regarding all matters
To get rid of our vanity and arrogance
Let us appeal to God
it is one of the traits of servitude
Let us say our prayer to Him, to show that we are weak servants
Let us ask Him, to show that we are His slave and we think well
Let us appeal to God
He will certainly grant our requests even in the hereafter
Prayer means we are interacting with God
Prayer means we supplicate to God
Prayer means we are having conversations with God
We express all our affairs to Him
Asking for this and that
Isn’t that beautiful and delightful
Prayer is an act of worship
In fact it is considered the head of worship
Prayer is the weapon for the believer
Prayer is a hope
Prayer is included as the relationship between a slave and his Creator
People who do not say their prayer or invocation means
he is arrogant with God
He feels that he has power
He does not need his Lord anymore
He is included amongst the people who have been severed from the grace of God

LET US WORSHIP GOD

There are many who worship nature
but nature has been damaged by human beings
There are many who worship status and rank
finally they fall as well
There are many who worship money
they end up losing everything that they have
or they do not know what to do with it

Quite a number of those who are worship beautiful female
who eventually die or they get older
some will run away after cheating on us
finally they are lost somewhere that we cannot trace
there is no letter, there is no news

In fact, whatever that we go after, all will perish
nothing is permanent, nothing is truly dependable
there is nothing that prevails
Whatever that we have, all are disappointing
At most, at the end of life, they don’t achieve all that they want

O fellow human beings, try to use your mind and pay some attention
Make it a learning lesson, make it into an experience
Do we still wish to go after all those things again?
those things which were deceptive and disappointing

Let us worship God, He will not disappoint us
Let us love Him, He is eternal never-ending
Let us use everything to worship Him
Let us chase after anything as long as it is for God
