Hadiths and magnolias in full bloom for your eyes and your souls. May you look at the world with your hearts.

After all these bad news I wanted to show you something beautiful: these pictures I took last spring. SubhanAllah, if this world can be that beautiful, how beautiful may it be in Paradise. May we all one day be there together united with our beloved ones.


And on the authority of Wabisa bin Mabad, may Allah be pleased with 
him, who said: 

I came to the messenger of Allah and he said: "You have come to ask 
about righteousness ?". 

I said:" Yes." 

He said: "Consult your heart. Righteousness is that about which the soul feels tranquil and the heart feels tranquil, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in the soul and moves to and from in the breast even though people again and again have given you their legal opinion [in its favor]."


On the authority of Abdullah bin Omar, who said: The messenger of Allah took me by the shoulder and said: 

"Be in the world as though you were a stranger or a wayfarer."

The son of Omar used to say: 

"At evening do not expect [to live till] morning, and at morning do not expect [to live till] evening. 
Take from your health for your illness and from your life for your death."

On the authority of Abu Malik Al-Harith bin Asim Al-Ashari said that the messenger of Allah said: 

"Purity is half of faith.  alhamdu-lillah  [Praise be to Allah] fills the scales, and  subhana-Allah  [How far is Allah from every imperfection] and  alhamdu-lillah  [Praise be to Allah] fill that which is between heaven and earth. 

Prayer is light; charity is a proof; patience is illumination; and the Quran is an argument for or against you. Everyone starts his day and is a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or bringing about its ruin." 

related by Muslim. 


On the authority of Abu Saeed Al-Khurdari, who said: I heard the messenger of Allah say:

"Whosoever of you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart; and that is the weakest of faith."
