Preserving the Jewels of Islaamic Knowledge

The Mercy of Allaah

Posted by tayybahppn on April 8, 2009


Allaahu akbar, maShaa’Allaah, wallaahi your contributions are timeless treasures. Ameen to all your du’aa’s, and may Allaah  increase us in love unto Him and His obedience.


My favorites are really a lot, but it will suffice ISA to share with you

these 2 hadiths:


The first is from Madarijus-Saalikeen, by Ibnul Qayyim




The Prophet  mentioned that Allah  said,


“Myself, Mankind and Jinn are in a great serious state. I create them, then they worship other gods that they make for themselves; I bless them with my bounties, then they thank someone else for what I sent them; My Mercy descends to them while their evil deeds ascend to Me;

I endear them with my gifts even though I have no need to any of them while they alienate themselves from Me with their sins even though they are desperate for my help.

Whoever returns to Me, I accept him no matter how far he is; and whoever turns away from Me, I approach him and call on him. Whoever leaves a sin for my sake, I reward him with many gifts and whoever seeks to please Me, I seek to please him. Whoever acknowledges My Will and Power in whatever he does, I make the iron bend for his sake. My dear people are those who are with Me (i.e. whoever would like to be with Me, let him supplicate to Me and remember Me). Whoever thanks Me, I grant him more blessings; whoever obeys Me, I raise him and endear him more. Whoever disobeys Me, I keep the doors of My Mercy open for him; if he returns to Me, I bestow him with My Love since I love those who repent and purify themselves for My Sake. If he does not repent, I still treat him by putting them in hardship to purify him. Whoever favors Me over others, I favor them over others. I reward every single good deed ten times over or seven hundred times over to countless times over. I count every single bad deed as one unless the person repents and ask for My Forgiveness in which case I forgive even that one. I take into account any little good deed and I forgive even major sins. My Mercy supersedes My Anger; My Tolerance supersedes My Blame; My Forgiveness supersedes My Punishment as I am more merciful with My slaves than a mother with her child.”


This one is in arabic.


حدثنا أبو منصور محمد بن القاسم العتكي ثنا أبو عبد الله محمد ابن أحمد بن أنس
القرشي ثنا عبد الله بن بكر السهمي أنبأ عباد بن شيبة الحبطي عن سعيد بن أنس عن
أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال : بينا رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم جالس إذ
رأيناه ضحك حتى بدت ثناياه فقال له عمر : ما أضحكك يا رسول الله بأبي أنت و أمي
؟ قال :
رجلان من أمتي جثيا بين يدي رب العزة فقال أحدهما : يا رب خذ لي مظلمتي من أخي
فقال الله تبارك و تعالى للطالب : فكيف بأخيك و لم يبق من حسناته شيء ؟ قال :
يا رب فليحمل من أوزاري
قال : و فاضت عينا رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم بالبكاء ثم قال : إن ذاك
اليوم عظيم يحتاج الناس أن يحمل عنهم من أوزارهم
فقال الله تعالى للطالب ارفع بصرك فانظر في الجنان فرفع رأسه فقال : يا رب أرى
مدائن من ذهب و قصورا من ذهب مكللة باللؤلؤ لأي نبي هذا أو لأي صديق هذا أو لأي
شهيد هذا ؟
قال : هذا *لمن أعطى الثمن* قال : يا رب و من يملك ذلك ؟ قال : أنت تملكه قال
بماذا قال : *بعفوك عن أخيك* قال : يا رب فإني قد عفوت عنه قال الله عز و جل
: *
فخد بيد أخيك فادخله الجنة*
فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم عند ذلك : اتقوا الله و أصلحوا ذات بينكم
فإن الله تعالى يصلح بين المؤمنين يوم القيامة


Ibn Katheer, in alBidaayah wa-AnNihaaya


After having read this, and seeing the mercy of Allaah  and His care for the believers, how do you feel? The moments of life by which we feel alive are very few. Ibnul Qayyim said in his nooniyyah: Wallaahi there is no pleasure in this world better than the longing and yearning of the slave for ar-Rahmaan.


Those are the moments that make something a favorite.


I advise myself first and my brothers and sisters to have taqwa of Allaah , to keep our times full of remembering Him and working for His deen, and I also ask you by Allaah  to forgive my shortcomings. If you read the second hadeeth, you will understand why I am saying that.
