0 Pain

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We need pain, sometimes at least. 

It teaches us how to be grateful.

It builds empathy in our souls.

It deletes some of our sins.

It restricts us from doing unnecessary things.

It reminds us to the Creator. 

It brings us back to where we should go.

حسبي الله ونعم الوكيل

0 Me And Riyadhus Solihin

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

When things do not go very well, one of the things I would do is to sit on a chair in front of my table and open the book Riyadhus Salihin with explanation by Ibn 'Uthaimin. One of the most beautiful books I have in my bookshelves. Just search for any title, insyaAllah it will be found in that book. Al-Imam An-Nawawi has collected and arranged Al-Quran verses and Hadith in a very nice way.

This is also one of the reasons why I love Egypt. The Arabic language and the books. Everything is there. What is needed is to go, buy and read.

I open the chapter of Prayers (كتاب الدعوات). The very first verse was from Surah Al-Ghafir verse 60, followed by Al-A'raf verse 55, Al-Baqarah verse 186 and An-Naml verse 62.

Reading explanations of these verses was enough to build some tears and to at least remind this rocky heart about the immensity of His mercy. He always hears our prayers. May everything goes with ease.

0 Al-Haunu

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This year winter break is one of the 'shortest' break I have ever had. Class has just started while my break seems just about to begin. What a break. Too many unexpected yet significant things happened. A break that more or less shaped and built my maturity.

I met several mature guys. One of the prominent traits that can be seen in them is al-haunu(الهون) which means calmness and tranquility. Calm in every actions away from premature decisions. As experience has taught them, rushing never results prosperity.

They say ; بالهون بالهون (be calm, be calm)

Truth will inevitably prevail. Let time decide the moment.
