A Muslim’s mind is imperfect before he enjoys ten characters—good is expected from him, evil is far away from him, he regards others’ little good deed as great favor and regards his great favor as little, he is not disturbed by people who ask him to settle their needs, he does not feel tired of seeking knowledge all his lifetime, he prefers poverty for God’s sake to richness, prefers humility with God to honor with His enemies, and prefers obscurity to fame. The tenth character! Do you know what is it?
They asked, ‘What is it?’
It is to regard anyone as better and more pious than him. He classifies people into two kinds; either better and more pious than him or eviler and lowlier than him. If he meets one of those who are eviler and lowlier than him, he wishes the good of that man might be hidden, and this will be better for him, while his own evil is apparent, and this will be worse for him. When he meets one of those who are better and more pious than him, he behaves modestly so that he may join him. If he does so, his glory will be lofty, good deeds will be acceptable, and his reputation will be good. Besides, he will be the master of people.
If it is possible for you, be unknown. So what if people do not praise you! What does it matter if you are lowly in the eyes of people, when you are praiseworthy in the eyes of Allah.
I will be doing ziyarah in Iran and Iraq for two weeks from tomorrow inshAllah. Remembering all of you while there.
I came to his home asking him to come out. The servant Fizza said after I told her to tell Ali to come out to pledge loyalty to Abu Bakr: “Amir Al-Mumineen Ali (as) is busy.” I then said: “Tell him to come out or we will come in and bring him out against his will. Then Fatima said from behind the door: “You liars and misguided people. What do you want?” I said: “O Fatima.” She said: “What do you want Umar?” I said: “What is wrong with your spouse? He sent you to answer and hid behind a veil.” She said :”It is your tyranny you miserableness that has brought me here to prove your evilness and every other misguided man of desires behind you.” I said: “Enough with your falsehood and women imaginations. Tell Ali to come out.” She said: “There is no honour, are you threatening me with the party of Satan. Indeed the party of Satan is weak.” I said: “If Ali didn’t come out, I will bring wood and burn this house along with all who are in it or Ali will be dragged to pledge his loyalty.” Then I took the whip of Qunfuz and hit her and then said to Khalid ibn Al-Waleed: “You and your men bring the wood. I will start the fire.” Then she said: “O enemy of Allah, His Messenger and Amir Al-Mumineen.” She pushed the door with her hands to prevent me from opening it so I hit her hands and harmed her. When I heard her sighs of pain, I was about to feel pity for her and step away from the door but then I remembered the grudge I have against Ali for killing the Arab heroes and against Muhammad for his plots and magic. So I kicked the door and heard her bones crush against it. She uttered a sigh which I thought that will turn Al-Madina upside down saying: “O Father, O Messenger of Allah. This is what is happening to your daughter and loved one. O Fizza, come take me. I swear to Allah, he killed the baby inside me.” I heard her sighing when leaning on the wall then I pushed the door and came in. She came to me with a face that blinded me and so I slapped her above her scarf on her cheek and broke her earring that shattered on the floor
Oh Fatima! Even if all of the prophets Allah had sent to guide mankind and all the high ranking angels close to Allah were to pray and beg for Allah’s mercy towards those who usurped your rights and those who oppressed you, Allah would never remove them from the Hellfire
Prophet Muhammad (sawa), Bihar Al-Anwar volume 76 page 354
Allah SWT is the Kings of all Kings. Allah does not need your worship. O people, you are in need of Allah. Allah SWT is The Richest. If Allah SWT decides, He will make us all history. He will bring a new generation, it’s very easy for Allah. How amazing is Allah, slaves he created, he gave them family, wealth, health..everything we have is from Allah.. He still gives us the opportunity to pray. Everything in the Earth and Heavens praises Allah SWT, man was created weak. No doubt, you will be stressed, depressed without praying. Verily, you are the loser if you don’t pray. Cry for yourself if you don’t take this opportunity to pray.
Allah created the universe for our sake and he created us for the sake of Fatima (sa)
I am from the brightness of Muhammad (sawa), knowing all past and future events till the Day of Judgement
