Feeling Delightful When Remembering Allah: Sunday 23rd Muharram 1436 (16th November 2014)

Ibn Qayyim said, “Feeling Lonely is one of the evil consequences of committing sins.”

Some people don’t feel delightful or joyful when remembering Allah etc.

When they finish the prayer their Tasbeeh is quick and they only give lip service to it.

We should feel tranquil when we remember Allah.

The Qur’an becomes the spring of your heart, when you know Allah by His names and attributes.

The heart that doesn’t see the impact of Allah’s kindness and mercy will never feel joy.

It is preferred for one to isolate himself for some time from the people and remember Allah’s mercy, kindness, beneficence etc.

Even when the true believer socializes with people, his heart is with Allah. They feel more joyful when they worship and remember Allah.

This is a healthy sign as this indicates that the person is reaching that state of devotion with Allah.

If a person feels more joy with people than when alone remembering Allah, then there is something wrong with her faith.

Truthfulness

The attribute of truthfulness الصدق

Allah described many prophets with this attribute, emphasising it again and again. Many people think they are truthful yet they are liars and they don’t know.

What is الصدق?
Ibn Faris mentioned in Taj Al Uroos, “الصدق is conformity of the speech with what is established in the heart and the conformity of the speech with the fact.”

The opposite of a truthful person is a liar. Someone who lies speaks but contradicts his intention and the fact.

Another meaning  of الصدق is strength, So when the truthful person speaks a statement it is very strong. This person strongly observes the conformity of his speech with the fact and what is established in his heart. He doesn’t want to say something untrue. This is why he is considered a truthful person (الصادق)

This word was also used in the Arabic language when referring to arrows.

For instance a child has a lollipop. Her friend asks her for it and she says it’s not good for your teeth. She is speaking the truth but she said it so she wouldn’t have to share. She is considered a liar.
If children grow up on these matters they will tell lies not knowing they are liars. It will grow from a lollipop to something greater.

”..And when you feel the coldest then that is the winter breath”

The Messenger of Allah (Salla Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said:

“The  Hell fire has complained to its Lord and said “O my Lord, I am eating myself so allow me to have two breaths, one in the winter and one in the summer. So when you feel the hottest then that is the summer breath. And when you feel the coldest then that is the winter breath”.

[Sahih al-Bukhari,Book 9, Hadith 14]

“The Best Du’aa is the Du’aa on the Day of ‘Arafah…”

https://enlightcenterq8.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/b4f87-d8afd8b9d8a7d8a1d8b9d8b1d981d8a9.png

It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (Radi Allaahu anhu) that the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“The best Du’aa is the Du’aa on the Day of ‘Arafah, and the best thing that I and the Prophets before me said is:

‘Laa ilaaha illallaah, wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul-Mulku
wa lahul-hamd, wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shayin qadeer’.”

(There is nothing that deserves to be worshiped in truth except Allaah, He is Alone and has no partner, to Him belongs the dominion and to Him belongs all praise, and He is All-Powerful over all things)

[ At-Tirmidhee (#3585): Declared hasan by Shaykh al-Albaanee. See As-Saheehah (#1503)]

Significance & Virtues of the Day of Arafah – Compiled from various sources

Fasting on the day of Arafah is an expiation for two years. :

The ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah is the day of ’Arafah, since it is on this day that the pilgrims gather at the mountain plain of ’Arafah, praying and supplicating to their Lord. It is mustahabb (highly recommended) for those who are not pilgrims to fast on this day, since the Prophet (Salla Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) was asked about fasting on the day of ’Arafah, so he said, “It expiates the sins (Minor) of the past year and the coming year.” [Muslim (no. 1162)]

Imaam at-Tirmidhee (d.275H) – rahimahullaah – said, “The People of Knowledge consider it recommended to fast on the day of ’Arafah, except for those at ’Arafah.” [Muslim (no. 1348)]

[ Source: The Month of Dhul-Hijjah – Al-Istiqaamah Magazine, Issue No.6 ]

Allah frees slaves from the fire on Arafat more than any other day

Likewise, the Prophet (Salla Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘There is no day on which Allaah frees people from the Fire more so than on the day of ’Arafah. He comes close to those (people standing on ’Arafah), and then He revels before His Angels saying, ‘What are these people seeking.” [Jaami’ut-Tirmidhee (3/377)]
