THE RIGHTS OF PARENTS
Respect of parents is a primary and sacred obligation. If you do not respect your parents, you are disobeying God Almighty. Those who treat their parents badly eventually are treated badly by others.

From the very moment of conception, a growing and developing child is a care and responsibility for its parents. One cannot estimate the depth of attachment and compassion parents feel for their children, or calculate the troubles and hardships they endure because of them. For this reason, respecting parents is a debt of human gratitude as well as a religious obligation.

Those who value their parents and regard them as a means to obtain God’s mercy are the most prosperous in both worlds. Those who regard their parents’ existence as a burden or who
become weary of them inevitably suffer the most severe hardship in life.

The more you respect your parents, the greater the respect and awe you feel before your Creator. If you do not feel and show respect to your parents, this means that you feel no
fear, awe, or respect toward God. Yet, it is a curious thing today that both those who disrespect God and those who claim they love God disobey their parents.

Children should respect and obey their parents as much as possible. Parents should give as much importance to their children’s moral and spiritual education as they do to their physical growth and health, and should entrust them to the care of the most honorable teachers and guides. How ignorant and careless are those parents who neglect their children’s moral and spiritual training, and how unfortunate are the children who experience such neglect are so victimized.

Children who are inconsiderate of their parents’ rights and disobey them are “monsters derived from a deteriorated human being.” Parents who do not secure their children’s moral and spiritual welfare also are merciless and cruel. Most brutish and pitiless of all are parents who paralyze their children’s moral and spiritual development after their children have
found their way to human perfection.

Families form a society’s foundation. The reciprocal respect of rights and obligations within a family results in a healthy and strong society. When such familial relationships disappear, the society loses its compassion and respect for others.

MORALS

Morals are a set of noble principles that originate in high spirituality and govern human conduct. For this reason, people who neglect spirituality, and are therefore lacking in spiritual values, cannot sustain conduct in accordance with these principles.

Preferring the interests of others over one’s own is high spirituality and liberality. Those who always do good without expecting any return one day will bow before God in wonder and admiration when, unexpectedly, they meet the accumulated results of their considerate nature and all the good they have done.

Just because you are a learned one does not mean that you are truly human. Learned people are freed from carrying the burden of superfluous information and attain greatness to the extent that they serve humanity and set a good example for others through their high morals and virtues. Otherwise, they are no more than people who have wasted their lives. Those with high morals and virtues, even if they lack learning and as dense as iron, may sometimes prove to be a useful and valuable, and even as good as gold.

Never deceive anyone, even if they deceive you. Fidelity and uprightness are two of the highest virtues. Even if following this advice brings you loss, which it usually does, always be faithful and upright.

Morals were once thought of as virtues. Today, morals are regarded as a collection of rules for social behavior. I wish people would behave in accordance with those rules, even though they are not virtuous!

In the past, people would say: “The principles of good conduct are no longer practiced; we only see them written down in books.” Today, they say: “The principles of good conduct are out of date; whatever remains of them is written down in old books.” Whatever they say, those principles are worth the sacrifice of many new things, even though people try to present them as outdated.

PostSubject: Re: Pearls of Wisdom   Tue 7 Aug - 13:30

THE QUR'AN
In accordance with humanity's worth and value, and considering the human heart, spirit, mind, and physical being,the Qur'an descended from the Highest of the High. Containing the most perfect messages,it is a collection of Divine Laws.

Followed today by more than one billion people, the Qur'an is a unique book that, with its eternal and unchanging divine principles, guides everyone to the shortest and most illuminated road to happiness.

The Qur'an has been a source of light for the most magnificent and enlightened communities that have ruled the world, those that have produced thousands of scholars, philosophers and thinkers. In this sense, no other rule is equal to its rule.

Since the day it was revealed, the Qur'an has encountered many objections and criticisms. However, the Qur'an has always emerged unscathed and so continues to reflect its victory.

The Qur'an crystallizes in the heart, illumines the spirit, and exhibits truths from beginning to end. Only believers who can sense all the beauty of the universe in a single flower and see rainstorms in a drop of water can know and understand its real countenance.

The Qur'an possesses such a style that Arab and foreign linguists and literary men and women who heard its verses bowed before it. Those who recognized its truth and understood its contents bowed before this masterpiece of eloquence.

Muslims can reach unity only by affirming and believing the Qur'an. Those who cannot do so cannot be Muslim,nor can they establish any lasting unity among themselves.

Saying that "faith is a matter of conscience" means "I affirm God, His Prophet, and the Qur'an"with my tongue and my conscience. Every act of worship connected to this understanding manifests this affirmation.

When humanity was floundering in the brutality of ignorance and unbelief, the Qur'an burst forth in a flood of enlightenment that drowned the world in its light. The Qur'an engendered a revolution without parallel or equal. History is a sufficient witness!

The Qur'an teaches in a most balanced way the meaning and nature of humanity, and the truth and wisdom, as well as the Essence, Attributes, and Names of God. No other book can equal it in this field. Look at the wisdom of scholarly saints and the philosophy of true philosophers, and you will understand.

The Qur'an is the unique book commanding true justice, real freedom, balanced equality, goodness, honor,virtue, and compassion for all creation. It is also the matchless book forbidding oppression, polytheism, injustice, ignorance, bribery, interest, lying, and bearing false witness.

The Qur'an is the only book that, protecting the orphan, the poor and the innocent, puts the king and the slave, the commander and the private, the plaintiff and the defendant in the same chair and then judges them.

Claiming that the Qur'an is a source of superstition is nothing more than repeating the words uttered by ignorant Arabs fourteen centuries ago. Such a view ridicules wisdom and true philosophy.

If only those who criticize the Qur'an and the things it brought could produce something to guarantee the order, harmony, peace and safety of human life even in a short, temporary period... Actually, it's very difficult to understand this perversity and obstinacy when faced with the miserable and unbalanced civilizations based on principles foreign to the Qur'an, and the troubled, depressed, and moaning
hearts of those deprived of its light.


The most orderly life for humanity is that breathed by the Qur'an. In fact, some of the beautiful things that are today universally commended and applauded are the exact things encouraged by the Qur'an centuries ago. So, whose fault it is if Muslims are in an miserable situation today?

Those who criticize the Qur'an as if it were their profession generally have only a vague and superficial knowledge of its contents. It is ironic that such people feel free to vent their opinions without researching the Qur'an or even reading it. Actually, there is no difference between their attitude and the obstinacy some ignorant people show in the face of (positive) sciences. It seems that we must continue to wait for people to awaken to truth.

Those who have faith in Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, and the Qur'an have faith in God. Those who do not believe in the Qur'an do not believe in Prophet Muhammad, and those who do not believe in Prophet Muhammad do not believe in God. These are the real dimensions of being a Muslim.

The Qur'an enables people to rise to the highest level, namely the station of being addressed by God. Those who are conscious of being in this position hear their Lord speak to them through the Qur'an. If they take an oath that they speak with their Lord, they will not be among those who swear falsely.

Even though we are still in this world, when we enter the Qur'an's enlightened climate we feel that we are passing through the grave and the intermediate world (between this and the next), experiencing the Day of Judgment and the Sirat (bridge), shuddering at the horror of Hell, and walking on Heaven's tranquil slopes.

Those who have prevented Muslims from understanding the Qur'an and perceiving it in depth have thus removed them from Islam's spirit and essence.

In the near future, and under humanity's gazes of commendation and amazement, the streams of knowledge,technique, and art flowing toward the Qur'anic ocean will fall into their essential source and unite with it. At that time, scholars, researchers, and artists will find themselves in that same ocean.

It should not be too hard to see the future as the Age of the Qur'an, for it is the word of One Who sees the past, present, and future at the same moment.

Life without Allah is like a river overflowing in every direction. It has no clear direction, and it does more harm to others than it would have had it
followed its intended path. On the contrary, life with Allah is peaceful
and calm. Purposeful and fulfilling. Yet easy to overflow if we do not
stay on track with our tasks as Muslims.

The Glorious Qur'an says: "Indeed, this Qur'an guides to that
which
is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward. [17:9]"

Why was the Qur’an revealed? Sura Luqman, verse 3 answers this question by saying that the Qur’an is: “A guidance and a mercy unto the righteous ones.”


Allah, in the Glorious Qur’an commands humanity that:
“This is the Book. In it is guidance surely without any doubt, to those
who fear God, who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and
spend out of what we have provided for them.” (Sura Baqarah, verse 2 and 3)


Also the Qur’an states in Sura Luqman, verse 2-4: “These are the verses of the wise Book. A guide and a mercy to those who do good, those who establish regular prayers, and give regular charity, and have in their hearts the assurance of the hereafter.”


Allah says in Sura Bani-Israel, verse 105: “We sent down the Qur’an in truth, and in truth has it descended: And we sent thee but to give glad tidings and to warn (mankind).


In its entirety, the glorious Qur'an defines our purpose, lays out the plan, and entices us with a reward; an everlasting bliss. Truly those who do not follow the Qur'an harm themselves first, then their company. Verily, you yourself choose your path, and verily, you will meet your destiny.

Thank You History!

“Whoever reads history, despair would never enter his heart!

He will see that the world is days which God rotates between people:

The rich become poor. The poor turn rich.

The weak of yesterday are strong today.

Rulers of yesterday are vagabonds today. Judges are accused.

Conquerors are defeated.

Orbits circulate and life never stops. Events never stop running.

People exchange chairs.

No sadness goes on and no joy lasts.”

–Dr. Mostafa Mahmoud

Focus on What is Important

“When we contemplate the duration of the universe, we see it limited to the present moment, which is nothing more but the point which separates two infinities of time. The past and the future are as meaningless as if they did not exist. Is anyone more misguided than the man who barters an eternal future for a moment which passes quicker than the blink of an eye?”.”
 

Ibn Hazm Al Andalousi (994-1064 A.D., Al Akhlaq wa’l Siyar
Forgiveness
The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: ““It is better for a leader to make a mistake in forgiving than to make a mistake in punishing.”

  Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1011.

The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “Whoever is offered an apology from a fellow Muslim should accept it unless he knows that the person apologizing is being dishonest.”

  Mishkat al Tabrizi, Vol 3, Hadith no. 5052.

Gender Relations


“And among His signs is this: that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest and peace of mind in them, and He ordained between you love and mercy. Certainly, herein indeed are signs for people who reflect.”
  The Qur’an in Ar Rum, Chapter 30, verse 21.

The most perfect in faith amongst believers is he who is best in manners and kindest to his wife.”
 
Muhammad (p) cited in Sunnan Abu Dawud.
Good Conduct Toward Others

There are many doors to goodness. (Saying) ‘glory to God,’ ‘praise be to God,’ ‘there is no deity but God,’ enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing harm from the road, listening to the deaf (until you understand them), leading the blind, guiding one to the object of his need, hurrying with the strength of one’s legs to one in sorrow who is asking for help, and supporting the weak with the strength of one’s arms – all of these are (forms of) charity prescribed for you.”
  Prophet Muhammad (s) in Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 98.




The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “Anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should not harm his neighbor, and anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should entertain his guest generously, and anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should talk what is good or keep quiet (i.e. abstain from all kinds of evil and dirty talk).
 
Narrated by Abu Hurayrah, Sahih Al Bukhari, Vol: 8 Hadith 47.

The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “There is reward for kindness to every living thing.”
 
Bukhari and Muslim.


The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “God is kind and likes kindness in all things.
 
Rihadh us-Saleheen, Volume 1:633.

The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it. Whenever it is taken from something, it leaves it tarnished.
 
Imam Bukhari’s Book of Muslim Manners.
Those who work for you are your brothers. Allah has made them your assistants.”
  Bukhari and Tirmidhi.



Serving Others


The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Do you know who will go first on the Day of Resurrection to the shade of God…Those who when given what is right accept it, when asked for something give freely and who judge in favor of others as they do for themselves.”
Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1042.


The Prophet Muhammad (s) said, “Do not wish to be like anyone, except in two cases: (1) A man whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it righteously. (2) A man whom Allah has given wisdom (knowledge of the Qur’an and the Hadith) and he acts according to it and teaches it to others.”
 
Narrated by Abdullah in Bukhari, vol: 9, hadith 255.


Think as little as possible about yourself and as much as possible about other people.”
 
Eleanor Roosevelt.


Service to others is the rent you pay here for your room on earth.”
 
Muhammad Ali.


We believe that poverty does not belong in a civilized human society. It belongs in museums [...] A poverty-free world might not be perfect, but it would be the best approximation of the ideal.”
 
Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Winner.


Anyone who has property that exceed his needs, let him support someone whose property does not (meet his or her needs), and anyone whose food exceeds his needs, let him share it with someone who does not have food.
 
Prophet Muhammad (s) in Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 93C.



Truth




A true action leads to the path of virtue and good deeds, and virtue paves the way of a person to Paradise, and the said person continues to speak the truth till in the sight of Allah he is named Siddiq or Truthful. Lying leads to vice, and vice leads to indecent acts and if a person goes on lying till in the sight of Allah he is named a liar.
——— The Prophet (s) as reported by Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (r) in Bukhari and Muslim.
I’m for truth no matter who tells it. I’m for justice no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I am for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole. 
——— Malcolm X.
If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember what you said.
——— Mark Twain.

"You insist on looking at closed windows when He keeps opening doors of mercy upon you. Gratefulness comes from an awakened realisation of His blessings upon you. And He ‘azza wa jalla says, “If you are grateful, I would certainly give you more.”

"Nothing happens by chance. The little instances where someone helped you or brightened your day was a help from your Rabb who is taking care of you. Be conscious of who deserves your ()()() in the first place."


"If you refuse to leave something wrong for the fear of ‘losing out’ on your happiness, you have doubted in His Power to replace it with something that is much better and comforting for you in this world and the next."


"Both Jannah and Jahannam were made for sinners. Jahannam was made for the arrogant sinner, whereas Jannah was made for the repentant sinner."
