Real Identity

Your natural companion, your real identity, is the man within you. He it is who worship Allah or revolts against Him. He it is who goes for this world or aspires for the next. Your inner self is make you worthy of reward or deserving of punishment. The decision lies with you. Your hidden self is your best friend as well as your worst enemy. You alone can make your journey full of hazards and can make your destination full of bliss. If your inner self is safe you are safe: if not, not.
(Wasif Ali Wasif)


Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr:

The Prophet said, "Whoever has the following four (characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy unless and until he gives it up:

1. Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays.
2. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie.
3. Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous.
4. Whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner."

The World

This world is a difficult journey, An obstacle to overcome, Especially in the place we live in, Not everyday is bright and fun. The righteous salaf were as fearful of their good deeds being squandered, or not being accepted, as the present generation is certain that their neglect would be forgiven. [Hasan Al-Basri]
