Assalaamu Alaikum

Assalaamu Alaikum people. It has been a very long time since I have posted anything on this blog. I really can’t think of a good reason why I have stayed away so long. Either way, I have a new mission regarding my blog. As we all know, there are two external sources of guidance we can turn to in that briefest of instants before thoughts result in an outcome. The sum of all these outcomes could be described as our personality or character. Thus to my basic understanding there are two external sources of guidance that shapes our character /heart. These are of course the Qur’an and Sunnah.

With this in mind I mind I want to use this blog to record the steps in my new mission to focus on gaining knowledge of the Qur’an and Sunnah – Insha’Allah. The sources I want to use are  Tabari’s History of Prophets and Kings and the Commentary of the Qur’an by Ibn Kathir. I hope that i will gain the knowlege i need to influence my heart/character in a positive way.

I believe we are all born with defects in our character. Defects that are a challenge to overcome – ie a test. By using  knowledge of the Qur’an and Sunnah, I hope to push the odds more in my favor – Insha’ Allah it works.  The second benefit of doing this is that the more time I spend here, the less time i spend doing things that I have no business doing.

    It’s now Ramadan, so hopefully we can all find a way to improve ourselves as well Inshallah. One of the best ways is to study our deen, its history, and spend more time around righteous and God-fearing people.

    Not to mention spending more time doing good deeds, of course.

    Ramadan Mubarak

Ten causes that result in Allah’s love for His slave and the slave’s love for his Lord – By Imam ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah

1. Reciting the Qur’aan while pondering over its meanings and what is meant by it. 2. Getting closer to Allah by performing voluntary deeds after completing obligatory deeds. This is as is stated in a Hadeeth Qudsi: “My slave continues getting closer to Me by performing voluntary deeds until I love him.” [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree] 3. Continual remembrance of Allah under all circumstances, with one’s tongue, heart and actions. The extent of one’s love of Allah is determined by this. 4. Giving precedence to what He loves over what you love when you are overtaken by your desires. 5. The heart being avid of Allah’s Names, and Attributes and the heart roaming in that garden of knowledge. 6. observing Allah’s kindness, goodness and bounties, both hidden and open. 7. And this is the most wonderful, the heart being soft, subdued and meek before Allah. 8. Being alone with Allah during the time when the Lord descends during the last portion of the night while reading His Book and ending that by asking for forgiveness and repenting. 9. Sitting with the beloved and sincere, benefiting from the most fruitful of their speech. And not to speak unless speaking is more beneficial and you know that it will improve your state and be beneficial to others. 10. Remaining away from every cause that comes between the heart and Allah. These ten causes take the lovers to the station of true love and bring them to their Beloved.
