Two factors one should consider before reading any text

 Currently reading a book on ‘literary terms and criticism’

An interesting point is made:

‘There are, in fact, two contexts in which any work can be seen: a generic or genre context, and a historic context’

We can even apply this Islamically I feel.

In the genre sense, we can categorise works into their respected fields; be it usool al fiqh, fiqh, uloom al Quran, mustalah al hadeeth and etc.

Secondly, one should see the historic context the book was written.

When one understands these two very important primers before embarking on studying the text, it will help them achieve a more well rounded approach in analysing what is put before them.

Allah knows best.

An abode of love…


” المؤمن مألفة ، و لا خير فيمن لا يألف و لا يؤلف ” .

‘A believer is an abode of love; there is no good in the one who does not love others and others don’t love him’

(Musnad Ahmad)

The word مألفة is a اسم ظرف.

meaning: the place of love is found within the believers heart.


You will only know when try..

 و من لم يجرب ليس يعرف قدره

فجرب تجد تصديق ما قد ذكرناه

Whoever does not try will never know his capability,

So try and you will find truth in what we have just mentioned.

*basically; He who dares wins rodders.

الذين لا يعرفون قدر العلماء

للذين يقولون علمائنا اليوم لا يعرفون إلا فقه الحيض و النفاس

أهمية طهارة القلب


All this because of sending salutations and blessings…


يقول الإمام ابن القيم رحمه الله:

“من أراد انشراح الصدر ، وغُفران الذنب ، وتفريج الكرب ، وذهاب الهَم فليُكثر من الصلاة على النبي ﷺ “.

اللهم صل وسلم وبارك على سيدنا ونبينا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين

I will try a rough translation of the above:

Imam ibn al-qayyim رحمة الله عليه said:

Whoever wishes to expand his chest, have his sins forgiven, relief from distress, and removal of worries, should increase upon sending blessing and salutations on the prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم


Not for everyone..


من أعطيته سراً أصبحت له عبدا

Whoever you give your secret to, will make you his servant.

*the point being don’t tell everyone your secrets. 

The asal of rectifying the heart
