True patience is at the first stroke of a calamity.” (Al-Bukhari)

What does this hadith mean?

It means a person who can be patient at the first stroke of calamity is one who is truly with Allah (swt). Lets look into some ayats:

{…but give good tidings to the patient, who, when disaster strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.”} (Al-Baqarah 2: 155-56)

That patience comes when we know that we will be tested and there is a purpose to the tests, as we are told in the first part of the previous verse:

{And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits…} (Al-Baqarah 2: 155)

The Prophet (saw) reminds us:

"How wonderful is the case of the believer; there is good in everything and this is not the case with anyone except a believer. If good attends him, he expresses gratitude to Allah and that is good for him; and if adversity befalls him he endures it patiently and that is better for him." (Muslim)

Good to be a mumin, Alhamdulillah

You know why I am talking about Sabr all the time?

Because Sabr is what reverts need the most. I see alot of revert brother and sisters who hurry to learn everything about Islam TOO FAST

Just be patient. Take your time. Dont forget baby is born after 9 months. You cannot rush the time Allah (swt) has decided

At-Talaaq 3: assuredly God has appointed a measure for everything.

The intelligent person’’s tongue is behind his heart: when he wants to speak, he first thinks. If [his words] will be in his favor, he says them, and if they will be against him, he does not speak. And the ignorant person’’s heart is behind his tongue: when he merely thinks of saying something, he says it, whether it is for or against him.

If you are thinking about reverting to Islam and afraid you would disappoint Jesus please answer this question:

Do you think Jesus (as) is happy when you call Him the son of God?

What if He would be happier if you reverted to Islam?

Here is what He says in the Quran:

Al-Ma’idah 116. And (remember) when God will say: “Jesus, son of Mary, is it you who said to people: Take me and my mother for deities besides God?’” and he will answer: “All-Glorified You are (in that You are absolutely above having a partner, as having any need or deficiency whatever)! It is not for me to say what I had no right to! Had I said it, You would already have known it. You know all that is within my self, whereas I do not know what is within You Self. Surely You, and You alone, have knowledge of the Unseen (of all that lies beyond the reach of any created being’s perception).

Fethullah Gulen’s Statement on ISIS

I deplore the brutal atrocities being committed by the ISIS terrorist group hiding behind a false religious rhetoric and join the people of conscience from around the world in calling for these perpetrators to immediately cease their cruel and inhuman acts. Any form of attack, suppression or persecution of minorities or innocent civilians is an act that contradicts the principles of the Qur’an and the tradition of our Prophet upon whom be peace and blessings.

ISIS members are either completely ignorant of the spirit of Islam and its blessed messenger, or their actions are designed to serve their individual interests or those of their political masters. Regardless, their actions represent those of a terrorist group and they should be labeled as such and be brought to justice.

The goal of religion is to establish peace based on universal human rights, rule of law and high human values in the world. Any interpretations to the contrary, including the abuse of religion to help fuel conflicts, are either false or deceitful. In true Islamic thought based on its core principles, every mean to a legitimate end should also be legitimate itself. To think or act otherwise is nothing but Machiavellism.

I send my heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the deceased in Iraq and Syria, and to the family and friends of the slain journalist James Foley. May God give them patience and perseverance, and alleviate their suffering. I pray for the immediate release of other hostages and ask God, the Merciful to lead us all into a world of mutual respect and peace. I invite everybody to join together in this prayer.
