Reasons to rejoice


SubhanAllah! How merciful He is! We discovered two reasons that put a smile on our face today.

1. The thought of being with our loved ones for eternity bi-iznillah.
2. This aphorism of Ibn Atha'illah -
When He makes you utter a request,
it means He wants to give you something.
"Allah knows best what is good for his servant so that He makes him long and pray for that. Even the prayer for a good thing does not stem from the servant's intention but it springs from his Lord's persuasions."

Oh... please can we all say a prayer for Shaykh Muhammad Abu Huda al-Yaqoubi. Some 'authorities' have banned him from speaking his faith. But they should know that the shaykh's words can never be silenced because haqq shall overcome batil, spoken or otherwise. And we fret not, for we know the awliya Allah they neither worry nor grieve. So the believers have got yet another reason to rejoice. Allahu Akbar!


  1. subhanallah, alhamdulillah,la ilaha ilallah, allahu akbar wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah.
    hasbunallah, rabbunallah

    sweetest words

  2. Indeed, those are the sweetest words! Thank you : )

    We all love Al Yaqoubi don't we? I met him just once and that was enough to make me love him to bits. Alhamdulillah I had the privilege to eat some leftover cheese from his plate, Allahu Allah, sweetest cheese I've ever tasted, ever!
