According to the Holy Quran, what is the biggest favor that Allah gave us? He granted us wealth above which there is none higher. The explanation of the supplication of Sayyidina Ibrahim in the Holy Quran and the four things he prayed for the Prophet's Community to receive:
- the Signs that Allah wants us to know
- the Book
- the Wisdom
- to be purified
Prophet (s) took the responsibility of our salvation on his shoulder. Prophet (s) will teach us the Holy Book and the Wisdom. Knowledge without wisdom will make you unable to understand the Holy Quran. This existence is like a tree. Allah sent you a Messenger from within you. That Messenger is like a firm tree.
"We have granted Luqman Wisdom". Without wisdom we are like infants, we can harm ourselves without knowing.
Those who have wisdom, will spend in Allah's way.
Creation is in need of Allah (s). He does not need us.
Whoever possesses wisdom does not make partners with Allah.
Wisdom comes from good manners, and good manners are the result of having wisdom.
Does your ego have good manners?
The meaning of the hadith: "Sayyidina Muhammad's (s) character was the Holy Quran."
From nothingness Allah brought out existence and all existence appeared because of the Light of Prophet (pbuh).
Prophet Muhammd (pbuh) said: Gibril told me to give my nation the glad tiding that anyone who dies believing Allah has no partners, he will enter heaven. Prophet (pbuh) asked: Even if he steals and commits adultery, he said yes.
Allah's biggest favour on us is that He created us. Those who want Allah need to follow the example of Sayyidina Bayazid Al-Bistami (q).
Leave your ego behind if you want to reach Allah's Presence. We have Sayyidina Muhammad (s) as our role model. Leave your desires and come.
Sahabah were following the Prophet (s) each according to their level of belief.
The Prophet (s) was teaching his companions good manners. Prophet (s) said: The best of people are those who lived in my century.
Allah said: "You were the best nation sent forth to mankind."
Ibn Mas`ud described the companions: the most pious among creation, and the one's with the deepest knowledge.
Why is the army of Satan and devils upset with the Children of Adam? Allah honored the sons of Adam. Allah said: "Those who remember Allah while standing, sitting and laying down and then reflect upon Allah's Signs". You cannot be distracted in your prayer. Sayyidina Yahya was given five orders by Allah to command the Children of Israel. Take what the Prophet (s) orders you to do, and do not do what he forbade you from.
Do not let Shaytan to destroy your prayer by listening to his whispers. Prepare yourself with ammunition to fight him off. How to pray to Allah without allowing shaytan to enter your heart. The rights of the prayer and what spoils the prayer. The five types of Prayer.
Whoever obeys Prophet (s) obeys Allah.
Allah said: "Neither My Heaven or My earth contained Me, but the Heart of My believing servant contained Me".
Run to Allah. Prayer is running to Allah.
Our hearts are like rocks, they need polishing.
The prayer contains all of the five pillars of Islam.
Three types of hearts.
Fiqh and Shari`ah are the shell, and spirituality is the kernel. Allah does not inhabit the heart because it can not contain Him. How can anything contain Allah when the whole universe is the "stuffing" of His chair. But Allah is in the heart of the servant who leaves everything for Him.
