The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallaam) used to seek refuge in Allaah from these four things…
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ لَا يَنْفَعُ وَمِنْ قَلْبٍ لَا يَخْشَعُ وَمِنْ نَفْسٍ لَا تَشْبَعُ وَمِنْ دَعْوَةٍ لَا يُسْتَجَابُ لَهَا
Zaid Bin Arqam (radiyallaahu-anhu) narrated that the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) used to say, “O Allaah! I seek refuge in You from knowledge that does not benefit; from a heart that does not fear (Allaah); from a soul that does not get satisfied and from a supplication that is not answered.”

[Reported by Muslim 2722]

Gabriel used to descend upon the Messenger of Allah ﷺ with the Sunnah just as he used to descend with the Qur’an.

Hasan bin ‘Atiyyah, reported by Ibn Battah in al-Ibaanah, p.128, and ibn Taymiyyah in Majmoo’ ul-Fataawa, 3/366. (via wayofthesalaf)
dawat-us-salafiyyah:

Question: A disbeliever embraced Al-Islam, and when he did he was informed of the legislations of the religion, he had an addiction to drinking alcohol. He said: I embrace Al-Islam in totality, however, as it relates to drinking alcohol I believe that it is prohibited by the legislation of Al-Islam but I will continue to drink it. Will his sin—i.e., drinking—from before Al-Islam be counted along with his drinking alcohol after Al-Islam?
Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih Al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah): Will what be counted?
Questioner: His sin and disobedience from before Al-Islam; along with his sin after Al-Islam.
Answer: Yes. If the disbeliever embraces Al-Islam and does well in his Islam then he will be pardoned for all of that which has preceded. If he embraces Islam and does poorly then he will be taken to account for that which has preceded and that which he has done. So when he embraces Al-Islam Allah erases from him the sins of Shirk and disbelief. And if he remains upon that which he was upon from disobedience when he was in disbelief then he will not be pardoned for that which has preceded (from this disobedience) in the state of disbelief, because he has not repented from it.
Questioner: (As for the fact that) Islam wipes away that which…
Shaykh completes the statement: It wipes away that which came before it, as long as he does not persist upon disobedience. This is affirmed within Saheeh Al-Bukhari; that he who does evilly within Al-Islam he will be taken to account for the evil he has done and that which he did previously. This is because he has not repented from it, in reality. He has repented from disbelief so his disbelief is pardoned. But he has remained upon the disobedience of (drinking) alcohol and hence he sins by way of it. Due to this, if the Muslim commits a number of sins, and he repents from nine out of them, the tenth one still remains.

Imam Abu Hanifah said to his student Abu Yusuf:

“Woe be to you Ya’qoob. Do not write down everything you hear from me, for surely I may hold an opinion today and leave it tomorrow, hold another tomorrow and leave it the day after.

Tell us about Urban Hiking in San Francisco. Where does it take you and what sorts of places do you see?

I really enjoy hiking in general and although there are a lot of great places to hike in the Bay Area, there aren’t too many big hikes in San Francisco. Urban hiking would be the next closest thing. San Francisco is built on hills so many places require a hike to get to.

I used to wander aimlessly before/after class or work, but not much anymore. Still, San Francisco is a city full of character so you can see quite a bit within a few blocks. Things or places I tend to look out for are simple everyday things that we pass by but pay little attention to.

Yili Apricot Valley, China. Every year, these rolling hills in Xinjiang explode into a puffy sea of pink and white. As the largest groves of apricots in the region, this flowering signifies the beginning of the fruiting season, while also transforming the landscape into something other-worldly.

I loved the irradiate refuge of sleep. In my dreams I found a little of the beauty I had vainly sought in life, and wandered through old gardens and enchanted woods.

know that relief accompanies distress

“Know that relief accompanies distress”
~Imaam Nawawee’s 40, no. 19

Shaikh ‘Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbaad:

“Meaning: if a hardship comes about and one takes refuge in Allaah, then the hardship will be followed by relief from Allaah”

[Sharh al-Arba’een an-Nawawiyyah tape 21 / asaheeha translations] (via path-to-the-salaf)

’Uthaimeen on the Heart

path-to-the-salaf:

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “The heart is a vessel, when it is filled with something no space for anything else remains [in it], so when it is filled with the love of this world it becomes preoccupied with that instead of the love of Allaah عزوجل and His Messenger  and [thus] a person becomes such that he has no interest except to gain [more and more].”

Sharh Bulugh al-Maraam, vol. 9, p. 366.
