The gentle & kind behavior of Prophet Muhammad towards someone who commits mistakes:
A man presented himself to the Prophet and explained that he had sexual relations with his wife, while fasting during Ramadan. The Prophet told him to either free a slave, fast for 60 consecutive days, or feed 60 poor people. The man responded that he did not have the wealth or ability to do either of those things. So the Messenger of Allah went and brought for him a platter of food to feed the poor with. Then the man explained that there was no other person in the land in need of food more than himself and his family.
Rasulallah let out a big smile, to the point that all of his teeth could be seen, and said to the man, “Go and feed your family with it.” [Bukhari & Muslim]
صلى الله عليه وسلم
“There are very few things in life that we know for certain.
You don’t know what your situation will be tomorrow, who you’ll marry, if or when you’ll have kids, etc.
But there is something that’s certain and that never changes – Allah responds to those who call on Him.
The Prophet (peace be upon him), “Ask Allah when you are sure of His response, and remember that Allah does not accept the dua of the unmindful and neglectful heart.”
So for a moment, stop thinking about all the uncertainties in life, have yaqeen, and turn towards Him whose promises are true.”
— Sh. Muhammad Alshareef
"I was trying to create a jennah—a perfect, storm-free, fireless world—outside. But that doesn’t exist in dunya. I needed to shift the focus. Jennah—a calm, peaceful world—can exist inside. Your sanctuary is inside yourself. No one can take that sanctuary away from you. No storm can affect it. No rain can reach it. Work on building *that* jennah. Work on entering *that* jennah. And you will have jennah in this life, and the next."
The lowest level of brotherhood in Islam: to not hold any ill-feelings towards your brother in faith.
The middle level: to love for your brother in faith what you love for yourself.
The highest level: giving him preference over yourself. “They give them preference over themselves, even if they too are in need: those who are saved from their own souls’ greed are truly successful.” [Surat al-Hashr: 9]
"Modesty doesn’t mean that we must always hide from the opposite gender. Rather, modesty calls for interacting only when necessary and carrying oneself mindfully & confidently. Take this example from the Quran and the story of Musa (alayhi al-salam).
A great lesson from the Qur’an about how men and women are supposed to interact in public and the workplace.”
