Be moderate in seeking provision

Do they not see that Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts [it]? Indeed, in that are signs for a people who believe.

[Qur’aan 30:37]


It was narrated from Jabir bin 'Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

"O people, fear Allah and be moderate in seeking a living, for no soul will die until it has received all its provision, even if it is slow in coming. So fear Allah and be moderate in seeking provision; take that which is permissible and leave that which is forbidden. "

[Sunan Ibn Maajah]

Do as you are told or don’t complain

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that

The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "Seek refuge with Allah from poverty, insufficiency and humiliation, and from wronging (others) and being wronged.'"

[Sunan Ibn Maajah]


We have been told to do something.

We are to seek protection from the things mentioned in the hadith.

We are to seek protection against poverty.

We are to seek protection against insufficiency

We are to seek protection against humiliation

We are to seek protection against wronging others

We are to seek protection against being wronged by others


Yet, how many of us do the above? Then, when poverty, humiliation, or insufficiency afflicts us or someone wrongs us, we complain and say O Allaah why did You do this to us?

Learn to do as you have been ordered by the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). Otherwise, do not complain when you suffer.

Abandon fulaan and fulaan

Follow Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

This is what you have been commissioned with.

If you follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa allam), and that leads you to oppose everyone else, so be it.

Do you want Allaah to love you?

Follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

You will be with those you love in Paradise.

Love the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam). Love Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him). Love Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him).

Follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

Understand his Sunnah in the light of how his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) understood it.

Stop following fulaan and fulaan.

When a Sunnah is made clear to you, you must abandon the sayings of fulaan and fulaan.

You must only follow the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

This is the way of a Muslim.

Marriage is mustahabb

Marriage is mustahabb. It is not waajib unless a person fears he will fall into sin. Then, he must get married.

This is the opinion of the masses from among the scholars.

Sins darken your heart

No! Rather, the stain has covered their hearts of that which they were earning.

[Qur’aan 83:14]


The Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayi wa sallam) said:

Verily, when the slave (of Allaah) commits a sin, a black spot appears on his heart. When he refrains from it, seeks forgiveness, and repents, his heart is polished clean. But if he returns, it increases until it covers his entire heart.

[Jaami al-Tirmidhi]
