How the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum became this wise?
Ponder hard about this quote. subhan’Allah.
Ever wondered how the Sahabah Radiyallahu Anhum became this wise? Subhan’Allah.
This is the Guidance and Blessings of Allah Azza Wa Jall.
If you are venturing to the path of ‘ilm for His Sake then know that there will be a drastic change on your way of perspective, your way of speaking, your way of writing up to the way you handle situations and on making decisions.
This is the beauty for those who walk on the dusts of beneficial ‘ilm.
There will be increase awareness on every aspect of life in you, your vocabulary will be enhanced, you will be more wise, but you will notice that the with the hundreds of ahadith you may learn, the amount of your speech will be lessen, because then you will learn the value of speech and actions. subhan’Allah.
Indeed, let us reflect from what ‘Ali Ibn Abi Talib Radiyallahu Anhu once said amongst other companions:
“This world is like a snake; its bite is subtle but its stinging poison is deadly.
So stay away from its dazzles which amaze you for the little of what accompanies you after it.
Let go its worries after knowing the certainty of its departure, and be very cautious of it whilst taking recreation from it.
For indeed, overtime its companion delights in its happiness, there soon comes to him something he hates. And overtime he delights in friendships or resides with a loved one, loneliness soon takes him away.”
Allahu’akbar. That is just so deep, it is just so deep.
My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, this is the reality of this world.
I cannot write anything that could further explain what this great man had said but definitely I can end this one with a du’a for each and everyone of us.
“O Allah, bless us with Your Guidance for no one can be led astray with Your Guidance.
O Allah, shed us Your Protection for no one can be harmed with Your Protection.
O Allah, pour upon us Your Mercy for no one can truly forgive in abundance but You.
O Allah, take us only when you are truly pleased with us, and take us in a state that we are Muslims.
