Ibn 'Abbas reported:
When there was a solar eclipse the Messenger of Allah Sallaulahu alayhi wa salam observed eight ruku's and four prostrations (in two rak'ahs). This has been narrated by 'Ali also.
حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ ابْنُ عُلَيَّةَ، عَنْ سُفْيَانَ، عَنْ حَبِيبٍ، عَنْ طَاوُسٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ صَلَّى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم حِينَ كَسَفَتِ الشَّمْسُ ثَمَانَ رَكَعَاتٍ فِي أَرْبَعِ سَجَدَاتٍ . وَعَنْ عَلِيٍّ مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ .
Reference : Sahih Muslim 908
Have you ever gotten upset when you weren’t able to buy something that you really wanted? Or, have you ever bought something that you could have done without?
The answer to these two questions is yes, an unequivocal yes. It is pat of our human nature. We want and we desire constantly. When we allow this to go unchecked our desire for more becomes insatiable and overtakes the dictates of our souls.
My dear sisters need to refain from pressing their husbands or fathers to buy a new dress for a new celebration every few months (to the extent that they literally have a closet full of brand new clothes that have not seen daylight). If you have NEW clothes or shoes that you haven’t worn in over a year then there is a problem.
Any kind of addiction or extreme act emanates from our desire. Satan ever whispers to our Nafs(self) to go after our desires. He encourages us to be greedy and to overindulge ourselves. In this way we become slaves to our desires instead of in control of them. One enslaved to his desires cannot freely and truly worship his Lord. It is a matter of our Imaan (faith) that we hold ourselves back from wasteful spending.
The general principle according to which a man should conduct his spending is the same general principle according to which he should conduct his life, which is the middle way and moderation. Allah, may He be exalted, says: “And those, who, when they spend, are neither extravagant nor niggardly, but hold a medium (way) between those (extremes)” [al-Furqaan 25:67]. The fact that every penny of our sustenance is valuable and we should treat it that way. A Muslim should strike a balance between being frugal with his wealth and being generous to people in need. If we see someone in need of what we have , then we should help them for the sake of Allah.
May Allah guide us to be balanced spenders!❤ #Allah#islamicquotes#muslimah#ProphetMuhammadﷺ#Muhammad#weheartislam#islamicposts#Alhamdulillah#halal#dailyquotes#reminder#instagood#ramadan#AllahuAkbar#Dawah#Ummah#Sunnah#halal#islamicreminders#dua#dunya#paradise#friday#modest#instaislam#muslimquotes#islamic#education
"Yang Terindah dari Perpisahan"
Ketika hatimu sakit akibat kehilangan,
ada Allah yang membuka pintu-Nya untuk kamu dekati.
Segeralah mendekat kepada-Nya.
Biar Allah yang membantumu mengikhlaskannya. . .
Hari ini, kamu sakit dan kecewa karena berharap pada manusia.
Namun dari rasa sakit ini kamu belajar, jika tak ingin kecewa,
kamu harus berusaha berharap hanya kepada-Nya.
Mengadulah kepada Allah.
Menangislah di hadapan-Nya.
Ikatkan dirimu kepada DIA.
Karena, yang terindah dari perpisahan adalah... mengikhlaskan.
... Ikhlaskan. Nanti hatimu akan Allah kuatkan. Gundahmu akan dilapangkan. Lukamu akan disembuhkan
