The art of speech

لا إله إلا الله

How you talk, how you respond – how you advise has more of an effect than what you say. How you make people feel is more vital than what you make people hear.
Demeanor – decorum – the art of speech.

Experience them. Live them. Feel them. Express gratitude for them.

لا إله إلا الله


Have an idea to do good?

Write it down. Make a plan. Seek clarity and guidance through du’a and istikhaarah.

Pay attention to your intention. Execute.

Address any uncertainties/unforeseen circumstances through clear thinking, du’a, tweaking plans, and seeking counsel.

Continue. Complete.

Realise that your completion, or journey, may not be as you had envisioned.

Realise that there will be obstacles and tests.

Experience them. Live them. Feel them. Express gratitude for them.

Take the lessons. This is where growth lies: in the journey.

Express gratitude upon completion. Ask Allah to accept. Ask for forgiveness for any mistakes and shortcomings. Repeat 🙂

He calls you to Allāh

لا إله إلا الله

True Brothers

The Imām, Shaykh ʿAbd al ‘Azīz ibn Bāz [رحمه الله] said:

“So your brother is the one who advises you, reminds you, and alerts you.

Your brother is not the one who gives you no thought, avoids you, or speaks to you with pretty words that lack real truth and sincerity.

Rather, your brother, in reality, is the one who advises you, the one who admonishes you, and reminds you.

He calls you to Allāh, keeps explaining to you the path to deliverance clearly until you follow it, and warns you about the path to destruction – he keeps explaining to you how evil its end is until you avoid it.”

Majmūʿ Fatāwá Wa Maqālāt Mutanawiʿah, (14/21) |Translated by Mikail ibn Mahboob Ariff

Show concern for the Ahl-ul-Sunnah

لا إله إلا الله

From Sufyaan ath-Thawree [رحمه الله] who said:

«استوصوا بأهل السنة خيرا فإنهم غرباء»

“Show concern for the Ahl-ul-Sunnah with goodness since indeed they are the Ghuraba.”

I am not allowed to waste an hour of my life.

لا إله إلا الله

“I am not allowed to waste an hour of my life.”

Ibn Aqīl [رحمه الله] said:

“I am not allowed to waste an hour of my life. Even when I am not delivering lessons or reading, my mind would still be occupied with some matters whilst I’m lying down, and I will not get up until I find something useful to write. I still find zeal in my search for knowledge whilst [I am] in my eighties more than when I were in my twenties.”

[Ibn al-Jawzī, al-Muntadham, (9/214) | Translated by Salah al-Iranee]
