Muslim Always On Duty.




When an European Airline was initially launched, an educated Muslim gentleman was Traveling in the first class section. An air hostess approached him with a complimentary drink, this was an alcoholic drink so that man politely refused.
The air hostess returned but this time bought the drink on a platter, designed to appeal and impress however Muslim man again politely refused, explaining he doesn't drink alcohol.
The air hostess was concerned and informed the manager. The manager approached man with another platter, now designed with flowers, he questioned, “is there something wrong with our service? please enjoy the drink, it is a complimentary offer.”
The man replied, “I am a Muslim and I do not drink alcohol.” The manager still insisted that the man take the drink.
Then, the Muslim proposed that the manager should give the drink to the pilot first.
The manager stated, “how can the pilot drink alcohol, he’s on duty!? And if he drinks there are all chances for the plane to crash”.

The passenger with tears in his eye, replied, “I am a Muslim and I am always on duty in order to protect my Imaan (Faith) and if I drink I will crash my whole life here and hereafter.

Be of the "'Few"


When Umar bin al-Khattab radi allahu `anhu (may God be pleased with him) was walking in the market, he passed by a man who was supplicating, “O Allah, make us of Your ‘few’ servants! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants!”
So ‘Umar said to him, “Where did you get this du`a’ (supplication) from?”
And the man said, “Allah in His Book says ‘And few of My servants are grateful.’(Qur’an 34:13)”
So ‘Umar wept and admonished himself, “The people are more knowledgeable than you, O Umar! O Allah make us of Your ‘few’ servants.”
Sometimes when you advise someone to leave a sin, they respond with “But most people do it, it’s not just me!”
But if you look for the words “most people” in the Qur’an, you will find that
most people
•“do not know” (7:187),
•“do not give thanks”(2:243)
•“do not believe” (11:17).
And if you look for “most of them”, you will find that most of them are
•“defiantly disobedient” (5:59),
•“ignorant” (6:111),
•“turning away” (21:24),
•“do not reason” (29:23), and
•“do not listen” (8:21).
So be of the “few”, whom Allah says about them:
•“And few of My servants are grateful.” (34:13)
•“But none had believed with him, except a few.” (11:40)
•“In the Gardens of Pleasure, A [large] company of the former peoples, And a few of the later peoples.” (56:12-14)
Ibn al-Qayyim (ra) said, “Go on the path of truth and do not feel lonely because there are few who take that path, and beware of the path of falsehood and do not be deceived by the greatness of the perished.”

Scale of good and bad deeds.






Shaykh ‘Abdullaah ‘Azzaam said:

“And Ibn Al-Qayyim confirmed a principle saying that the human being, if his righteous deeds and benefit in the society are a lot, then he is forgiven for things that others might not be forgiven for, and mistakes of his may be overlooked that would not be overlooked for others, because the Messenger of Allaah said, “If water reaches two qullahs (measuring unit), then it will not become impure by impurity.” So a large volume of water, if some small impurity falls into it, does not have its purity affected, and it can still be used for ablution and bathing. Likewise, the human being, if his good deeds are many, then one turns a blind eye to some of his bad deeds that are drowned in his ocean of good deeds.
Because of this, when ‘Umar was bursting with fury at Hatib Ibn Abee Balta’ah, the one who carried out the great crime of treason – the crime of spying on the Islamic state and sending secret messages to Quraysh – and said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah (saw), let me strike his neck, as he has become a hypocrite,’ the Messenger of Allaah took the opportunity to teach them this basic principle by way of real-life experience, saying, ‘And how do you know, ‘Umar? He took part in the battle of Badr, and it might be that Allaah looked at the participants of Badr and said, ‘Do what you wish, as I have forgiven you.’ ”

Smart Robbery.



During a recent robbery in Hong Kong, the bank robber shouted to everyone in the bank:
"Don't move. The money belongs to the Government. Your life belongs to you."
Everyone in the bank laid down quietly.
This is called "Mind Changing Concept”
 Changing the conventional way of thinking.


When a lady lay on the table provocatively, the robber shouted at her:
"Please be civilized! This is a robbery and not a rape!"
This is called "Being Professional”
Focus only on what you are trained to do!


When the bank robbers returned home, the younger robber (MBA trained) told the older robber (who has only completed Year 6 in primary school):
"Big brother, let's count how much we got."
The older robber rebutted and said:
"You are very stupid. There is so much money it will take us a long time to count. Tonight, the TV news will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!"
This is called "Experience”


Nowadays, experience is more important than paper qualifications!
After the robbers had left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. But the supervisor said to him:
"Wait! Let us take out $10 million from the bank for ourselves and add it to the $70 million that we have previously embezzled from the bank”.
This is called "Swim with the tide”
Converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage!



The supervisor says: "It will be good if there is a robbery every month." 
This is called "Changing priority”
Personal Happiness is more important than your job”.


The next day, the TV news reported that $100 million was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count $20 million.
The robbers were very angry and complained:
"We risked our lives and only took $20 million. The bank manager took $80 million with a snap of his fingers. It looks like it is better to be educated than to be a thief!"

This is called "Knowledge is worth as much as gold!"

P.S:This was shared by my friend.
I do not know if this is true or not but i found it interesting.

Sincerity at its top...






Muhammad ibn Wasi’ said, “I have seen men, and among-st them would be a man whose head would be next to his wife’s head on the same pillow, and his tears would soak all that’s underneath his cheek yet his own wife wouldn't even know it. I have seen men lining up in a row (for prayer), and among-st them a man would stand, his tears flowing down his cheeks, yet the person next to him wouldn’t even know it.”

A good conversation. ..




A wonderful conversation worthy of being spread.

Khalid came and he was upset while saying:

"All of what we are in today (ie; the state we are today) of lowliness and humiliation is because of these oppressive, corrupted rulers who have destroyed Islam."

Muhammad said to him:

"I did not see you today for the fajr prayer. So why weren't you present for it? Did the rulers prevent you from performing it?"

He said: 'No'

Muhammad said: "and why do I see you shaving your beard while you know that it is a sunnah of your Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم? Did the rulers force you to shave it?"

He said: 'No'

Muhammad said: "And the western clothing I see you wearing, did the rulers order you to wear it?"

He said: 'No'

Muhammad said: "Your garment exceeding pass your ankles which is disobedience to your Lord, did the rulers order you with this?"

He said: 'No'

Muhammad said: "And that box of cigarettes which you are holding in your hands and trying to hide from me, did the rulers buy them for you?"

He said: 'No'

And then suddenly Khalid's phone began to ring with the tone of music so Muhammad then said to him: "This music tone on your phone, did the rulers put it (on your phone) for you?"

He said: 'No'

Muhammad said: "And before all of this do you know the categories of tawheed with which you worship your Lord with?"

He said: 'No'

Muhammad said: "Did the ruler prevent you from learning your belief?"

He said: 'No'

Muhammad said: "This is what is apparent and what is hidden is greater, but I hope by this you have come to know that you ARE THE REASON for the debasement/lowliness of your ummah.

Khalid say: "yes you have spoken the truth."

Then he stayed for a little then he said: "But the rulers ?!!"

Muhammad said: "Contemplate the statement of Allaah the Most High:

And thus We do make the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.) Auliya' (supporters and helpers) one to another (in committing crimes etc.), because of that which they used to earn. [6:129]

So Khalid said: 'Yes! But what is the solution?!'

Muhammad said: "Allaah سبحانه informed us in His statement:

"Verily! Allah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allah)." [13:11]

And Allaah did not say until they change their rulers"

 There are 114 Formulas in the Qur'an or 19 x 6.
 A total of 113 Suras in the Qur'an start with the formula. The only Sura not to start with one is the ninth, Surat at-Tawba. Surat an-Naml is the only Sura to have two formulas. One of these is at the beginning and the other in verse 30. Counting from Surat at-Tawba, which does not begin with the formula, Surat an-Naml follows 19 Suras on.

In the text of the Quran, there are 19 and only 19 verses where the word wahid ( ) is used to refer to or characterize Allah (God) as ONE.


It is to be recalled that the most im-portant or basic doctrine¾the central theme¾of the Quran is that God is ONE. The Quran teaches that God will forgive any sin of a repentant transgressor; but one offense He will not forgive is that of ascribing part-ners to Him.
