Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.
It strikes me that we may have learned or heard plenty of lessons and hadith over the years but often times we gather more and more but forget those we already have in hand.
Thought I put this here so that it'll be easier for me to memorize. And remember always to be compassionate and make it the first item on the behavior checklist - be merciful. Also a sign of gratitude for having obtained ijazah from at least three shaykh, the first one being Shaykh Muhammad Yaqoubi. May Allah bless him and all the shuyukh with more nur and heavenly bounties. Ameen.
As related by At-Tirmidhi, Rasulullah salallah alaihi wasalam said:
ir hamu man fil ardhi
yarhamkum man fis samaa'i
"The ones who are merciful,
the Most Merciful will have mercy on them.
Have mercy to those on the earth,
He who is in the Heaven will have mercy on you."
May Allah count this small act of blogging as me being merciful to the readers by way of sharing little bits of knowledge. May Allah forgive us, make us among the merciful and accept our deeds. Ameen Allahumma ameen.
