Guidance from The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him)

Hadrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-Aas (r.a.) reported: “The Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) said, “Successful is the one who has entered the fold of Islam and is provided with sustenance which is sufficient for his needs, and Allah makes him content with what He has bestowed upon him.”.
Related by Muslim.Hadith quoted from Riyad-us-Saliheen (Hadith # 523)
To be contented with the independent subsistence (Kafaf) has been counted a merit by the Prophet (PBUH) because this prevents one from begging of people. The Hadith points out the excellence of those people who remain satisfied with their limited resources and do not beg of people. Being content with adequate livelihood has its own merits because affluence often makes a man proud, whereas penury lowers his image in the eyes of people. Yet adequate livelihood has no room for the pitfalls of the two other situations.

    SubhanAllah, words of wisdom indeed! It’s a reality that regardless of how much we already have, we somehow feel that it’s still not enough. Thank you for the beautiful reminder, Jaan.

    Alhumdulillah for everything that we have been blessed with.

    ~ Alhumdulillah 🙂

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
