Lust for future comfort

“We waste so many days waiting for the weekend. So many nights wanting morning. Our lust for future comfort is the biggest thief of life.”

Nourishment of the Soul

The body is created from soil so it's nourished with food from soil. The soul is noor from Allah, so it's nourished with noor (I.e. Quran)

Have hope & fear in balance

Have hope in Allah's mercy but not to the extent that it leads to transgression. Fear Allah but no to the extent that it leads to depression.

Rage and Emotions

Too many marriages are annulled in rage & emotions. It is amazing how time can heal and restore mutual affection. Perseverance is magic.

On the Radio...

I was listening to the radio this morning. There was a discussion going on about the Shia cleric killed in Saudi Arabia.

One point I noted was that there was so much sympathy with this terrorist who was a Saudi national, who had disturbed the peace of the country and who was committing treason by attempting to topple the government. He was 1 of 47 who were convicted of terrorism, the rest were Sunni. The punishment in Saudi Arabia for terrorism is death, whether one agrees with it or not.

Also, Iran is crying for this one person while it has never said a single word for the millions of Syrians killed unjustly and the interference and turmoil they have created in Iraq post Saddam.

Secondly, Iran hangs Sunnis on a regular basis. In 2015 alone, they murdered more than 1000 Sunnis by hanging them in public. Many of them were Sunni clerics. Not to mention the other forms of persecution people face in that country.

Then the discussion moved on to whether the Sunnis think Shias are Muslims or not. The Sunni brother explained that it depends on what their beliefs are. The Alavees believe that Ali was God, so they are not Muslims, but those who don't hold such beliefs are Muslims.

What they failed to discuss was the Shia's belief regarding the Sunnis. Shias believe that all Sunnis are non Muslims. They even slander the companions of the prophet peace be upon him. They claim that they were all apostates. They believe that killing Sunnies elevates the ranks of Shia in paradise. Their leaders claim that Killing Sunnies holds more reward than killing any other non Muslim.

Shia books state that when the hidden Mahdi will arrive, (na'oodhu billah) he will take out Sayyiduna Abu Bakr and Sayyiduna Umar (radhiallahu anhuma) out of their graves and crucify them. These are just some of their disgusting beliefs towards the great Sahaba, whereas Sunnis love all the Sahaba including Sayyiduna Ali, Sayyida Fatima, Sayyiduna Hasan, Sayyiduna Husain and the rest of the Ahlul-Bayt.

Shias form only 10% of the world Muslim population. Yet they are causing so much corruption around the world.

May Allah have mercy on the Ahlus-sunnah and protect them throughout the world. Ameen.

Shaykh Abdul Raheem
