. . Causes of hard heartedness include: • turning away from Allāh, may He be glorified and exalted, and • not reading Qur`ān; • being preoccupied with this world and focusing mostly on it, • and not paying attention to matters of religion, because obeying Allāh [ﷻ] makes the heart soft and brings one back to Allāh [ﷻ] __________ The remedy for that is to turn to Allāh, repent to Him, remember Him a great deal, read the Qur`ān a great deal, and do acts of worship, as much as one can. [Fataawa Noor ‘ala al-Darb by Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 12/171] __________
Shirk - The word ‘shirk’ means the act of associating others with God in any capacity. Contrary to traditional belief, the belief in the existence of other gods is not an act of ‘shirk’ but an act of ‘kufr’ (disbelieve in the Oneness of God). Those who commit ‘shirk’ are by nature ones who believe that there is no god but Allah, but they fail to accept Allah’s absolute authority, thus they fall into the trap of ‘shirk’ (12:106). ______________________________________ An example of those are the ones who follow religious laws which are not authorised by Allah (42:21). By doing so they have set up their source of law as a partner with Allah in Allah’s exclusive right as the only Law Giver (6:114). Similarly, those who fail to dedicate all their religious practices to the name of God alone (6:162), but always commemorate other names besides Him in their Salat or other practices, are also committing an act of ‘shirk’. The practice of ‘Shirk’ is the only unforgivable sin (4:48)
Ibn Al-Qayyim, qu'Allah lui fasse miséricorde, fit ce commentaire dans Madârij As-Sâlikîn (2/275): "Par le Dhikr, le serviteur d'Allah renverse Satan, de même que Satan parvient à renverser (à posséder) les gens qui, par insouciance, n'évoquent pas Allah. L'un de nos prédécesseurs a dit: "Lorsque le Dhikr s'installe dans le coeur, si Satan s'approche de lui, il est jeté à terre, de même que l'homme est jeté à terre (possédé) lorsque Satan s'approche de lui. Les démons se rassemblent alors autour de Satan et demandent: "Qu'a-t-il?" On leur répond: "Il a été touché par un homme.""

Qu’est-ce que la sagesse ? Et comment le musulman peut-il l’acquérir ? → Réponse : La sagesse est le fait d’agir et juger de manière juste. L’adoption du comportement et du jugement faux est l’antipode de la sagesse. Il y a par exemple, des prédicateurs qui se prétendent sages sans l’être vraiment. Quand ils pensent que les autres ont commis un péché, ils s’empressent de les blâmer et de crier leur soi-disant péché sur tous les toits. Quand elles voient un homme entrer dans la mosquée sans faire la prière de la salutation, certaines personnes sont outrées et le bombardent de reproches. La sagesse dans ce cas eût été plutôt de lui expliquer calmement ce qu’en dit la loi islamique et le hadith s’y rapportant. Il en va de même des devoirs et des interdits, etc. On dira la même chose de la gestion personnelle du budget, laquelle devra être assurée avec beaucoup de sagesse. Combien d’hommes, en effet, dilapident leur argent et s’endettent inutilement pour des raisons futiles. 💐 Cheikh Mouhammad Ibn Salih Al-’Outheymine - الشيخ محمد بن صالح العثيمين 💐
ā . . Du'ā is the weapon of a believer. Always make du'ā and Allāh will answer. Some say, 'but I've made this du'ā so many times? How come Allāh isn't answering my prayer?' The answer is simple - Allāh [ﷻ] is the best of planners. __________ Allāh answers your prayers in 3 ways: • He says YES and gives it to you • He says NO and gives you better • He says WAIT and gives you the best __________ If you ask for something and you don't get what you specifically asked for, it doesn't necessarily mean Allāh didn't accept your du'ā. It's possible that Allāh replaces it with something far better than what you made du'ā for. Allāh does for us or gives us whatever is good for us. What we think we need may not be good for us while what we don't like is good for us. It's also possible Allāh will grant you what you asked for later and not now. Allāh knows us better than ourselves, so Allāh knows better what we need. __________

Salah is the second pillar of Islam and an obligation upon every Muslim. Salah is the only distinction between Muslims and Non-Muslims. It was said by Umar Ibn Khattab (Radi'Allahu Anhu), "There can be no Islam in the person who doesn't perform prayer" How can we not make Salah a priority when we know it's the very first thing we'll be questioned about? Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said "The first matter that the slave will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgment is the prayer. If it is sound, then the rest of his deeds will be sound. And if it is bad, then the rest of his deeds will be bad." [Recorded by al-Tabarani. According to al-Albani, it is sahih. Al-Albani, Sahih al-Jami, vol.1, p.503] We are indeed all sinners and the mercy of ALLAH is such that He gives us five definite opportunities to wipe away our sins. How can we let go of such a blessing? Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said "If a person had a stream outside his door and he bathed in it five times a day, do you think he would have any filth left on him?" The people said, "No filth would remain on him whatsoever." The Prophet ﷺ then said, "That is like the five daily prayers: Allah wipes away the sins by them." (Al-Bukhari & Muslim) __ Salah is not only an obligation but it's a gift to all believers! ________________________________________

The best example is to turn only to Allah, and to complain of one’s situation to Him alone. ________________________________ I've never been one to spill my heart out to people, even when I've been at my lowest, I only spill my heart out to Allah, I feel better in doing this, only Allah can truly help, only Allah can make me feel better, only Allah can ease the pain. ________________________________ The only One who can truly satisfy the heart, is He who created it💙
