My role

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The Four Real Time Stories Of Hikmah (Wisdom) Of The Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu'alayhi was-salaam)...


Just as the Prophet (S.A.W.), and his companions landed from their rides, and laid the loads down, it was decided that they would sacrifice a lamb for dinner.

One of the companions volunteered: "I will sacrifice the lamb."
Another: "I will skin it."
Third: "I will cook it."
Fourth: "I will...."

The Prophet (S.A.W.): "I will gather the wood from the desert."
The group: "O Messenger of Allah, it is not becoming of you to discomfort yourself as such. You rest. We will be honored to do all this on our own."

The Prophet (S.A.W.): "I know that you are eager to do it all, but Allah isn't pleased with the slave who distinguishes between himself and his companions, and considers himself better than others."

Then he went to the desert, and gathered some wood, and brought it to the group.

What now?

Audhubillah hi minas syaitan nir rajeem,
Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem,
La hawla wala quwwata illa billah hil aliyyil azeem.

Your mind is your instrument. Learn to be its master and not its slave

Seek truth in meditation, not in moldy books. Look in the sky to find the moon, not in the pond

Through meditation and by giving full attention to one thing at a time, we can learn to direct attention where we choose.

What is meditation you ask?
la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah
I do not know :)
for each their own as they say..
may your way be better than mine.

“Subhanaka, la ‘ilma lana illa ma ‘alamtana, innaka Anta’l ‘Alimu’l Hakim...” (Sura 2:32)
Allahu akbar... Ya ‘Alimu, ya Hakim, ‘alimna ma yanfa’una wa zidna ‘ilman!

A poet says:

ma la yakunu fa la yakunu bi hilatin
abadan wa ma huwa kayinun sayakunu
sa yakunu ma huwa kayinun fi waqtihi
wa akhul jihalati mutábun mahzunu
fa laálla ma takhshahu laysa bi kayinin
wa laálla ma tarjuhu laysa yakunu
yasaál qawiyyu fa la yanalu bi saáyihi
hažžan wa yahža áajizun wa mahinu

That which is not ordained, will never come to pass.
The predestined shall be; and needs it not a cause.
The fated will happen indeed, but at the time assigned
Ignorants tire and worry; to grief they are consigned
It’s likely what you fear, may never come to be -
Your hope to attain which, mayhap you’ll never see
The strong and sterling cannot, achieve by sweat or skill
Such fortunes weak and worthless; attain by luck’s spell.

Mbak ilekk...

In times of madness, when you feel pulled and tugged from every direction...please, have patience. Know that you are never alone. But will YOU stay? Times that we feel loneliness are actually the times when we left what is most important. You will never walk alone. But you can think that you are alone.

When you walk, through a storm,
hold your head up high,
and don't be afraid of the dark,
at the end of the storm is a golden sky,
and sweet silver song of the lark,
walk on, through the rain,
walk on, through the rain,
though your dreams be tossed and blown away,
walk on,
walk on,
with hope in your heart,
and you'll never walk alone.

walk on.

Now for a story:

A professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see and asked the students, ‘How much do you think this glass weighs?’

‘50 gms!’ …. ‘100 gms!’ …… ‘125 gms’ …… the students answered.

‘I really don’t know unless I weigh it,’ said the professor, ‘but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?’

‘Nothing’ the students said.

‘Ok! What would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?’ the professor asked.

‘Your arm would begin to ache’, said one of the students.

‘You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?’

‘Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress and paralysis and have to go to hospital for sure!’ ventured another student; and all the students laughed.

‘Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?’ asked the professor.


‘Then what caused the arm ache and the muscle stress?’ The students were puzzled.

‘Put the glass down!’ said one of the students.

‘Exactly!’ said the professor. ‘Life’s problems are something like this. Hold it for a few minutes in your head and they seem okay. Think of them for a long time and they begin to ache. Hold it even longer and they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything’.

‘It’s important to think of the challenges (problems) in your life, but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to have trust in Allah (swt) and to ‘put them down’ at the end of every day before you go to sleep. That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh and strong and can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!’

So, as it becomes time for you to leave office today, Remember friend to ‘PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY’ and have tranquility by putting trust in Almighty Allah (swt).

Holy Quran: “He it is who sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers that they might have more faith added to their faith”. (48:4) Tranquility is sign of strong faith while worries and stress is sign of weak faith.


“O soul that is at rest satisfied. Return to your Lord well-pleased (with Him), well-pleasing (Him). So, enter among My servants, and enter into my Paradise”.
