The two feet of a servant will not move from their places until he is asked about four things: about his youth and how he spent it; and about his lifespan and what he did with it; and about what how well he acted upon his knowledge; and about his earnings - where he got it from and what he spent it on.

My friends mom is 4’9 and her dad is 6’5. Whenever she is mad at him, she grabs a chair to yell in his face. Everytime that happens, he’s laughing too hard for her to stay mad. They say it’s the only way they’ve been married for so long.

dawat-us-salafiyyah:

“Whoever falls prey to the claws of their doubts will have his faith shredded to pieces.”
Hypocrisy is a deep rooted and all-pervading spiritual disease. A person’s heart could be overflowing with it yet be oblivious of it due to its hidden and subtle nature; frequently does it lead a person to think he is acting rightly when in reality he is spreading corruption.
It is of two types, major and minor: major hypocrisy leads to eternal punishment in the lowest depth of Hell. [1]
It is to actually display faith in Allah, His Angels, and His books, His Messengers and the Last Day whereas inwardly one is devoid of such belief, indeed disbelieving in it. He does not believe that Allah spoke to a man amongst men who he appointed to be a Messenger, guiding them by His provision and warning them of His punishment.
Allah, the Exalted says,

‘There is a sickness in their hearts and Allah has increased their sickness they will have a painful punishment on account of their lies.’ [Al-Baqarah 2:10]

As Sa’di said,
“The sickness here is the sickness of doubts and desires, the heart is beset by two diseases that eject it from its state of balance and normalcy: The disease of false doubts and the disease of vile desires. Disbelief, hypocrisy, doubts, and innovations all arise from the disease of doubts. Fornication, the love of lewd deeds, and sins all arise from the disease of desires. This verse also shows that it is as a consequence of over sins that Allah punishes him by by afflicting him with more sins.”
At-Tabari gives as an example of how this verse was actualised by stating that each time a Surah was revealed of the Qur’an containing new injunctions, this increased them in their doubts and hence their disease increased; each time a Surah is revealed there are some among them who say,

“Which of you has this increased in faith? As for those who believe, it increases their faith and they rejoice at it. But as for those with sickness in their hearts, it adds defilement to their defilement and they die as disbelievers.” [Surat At-Tawbah 9:124-124]

Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) further said:
Whoever falls prey to the claws of their doubts will have his faith shredded to pieces: whoever allows his heart to open to their vile tribulations will find himself a burning furnace! And whoever lends an ear to their deceptions will find them coming between him and firm belief. Indeed the corruption they cause on earth is a great but most people are unaware.

“When they are told; Do not cause corruption on the earth, they say, we are only putting things right. No indeed: they are the corrupters but they are not aware of it.” [Surat Al-Baqarah 2:11-12]

Love and hate at the same time — although it seems contradictory, I actually learn that this is possible if we take these words in the context of verbs: to love, means you make efforts to love someone for their righteousness, and to hate, means that your love for someone doesn’t make you blind from growing a feeling of dislike for his/her misconduct. Thus love and hate are not reduced to emotions that control your moods and actions, and not something that you can’t control forever. This way one doesn’t grow a generalised feeling of only love or only hate towards someone (judgmental). But this is just a subjective view though, I hope I can leant more about this.

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “Three men, in front of them is a sinner.

One of them says, ‘I’m not going to give this sinner salaam and will boycott him, distance myself from him and not speak to him.’

The second says, ‘I will go along with this sinner and give him

As a Jewish youngster growing up in Budapest, an infant survivor of the Nazi genocide, I was for years haunted by a question resounding in my brain with such force that sometimes my head would spin: “How was it possible? How could the world have let such horrors happen?”

It was a naïve question, that of a child. I know better now: such is reality. Whether in Vietnam or Rwanda or Syria, humanity stands by either complicitly or unconsciously or helplessly, as it always does. In Gaza today we find ways of justifying the bombing of hospitals, the annihilation of families at dinner, the killing of pre-adolescents playing soccer on a beach.

In Israel-Palestine the powerful party has succeeded in painting itself as the victim, while the ones being killed and maimed become the perpetrators. “They don’t care about life,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says, abetted by the Obamas and Harpers of this world, “we do.” Netanyahu, you who with surgical precision slaughter innocents, the young and the old, you who have cruelly blockaded Gaza for years, starving it of necessities, you who deprive Palestinians of more and more of their land, their water, their crops, their trees — you care about life?

There is no understanding Gaza out of context — Hamas rockets or unjustifiable terrorist attacks on civilians — and that context is the longest ongoing ethnic cleansing operation in the recent and present centuries, the ongoing attempt to destroy Palestinian nationhood.

The Palestinians use tunnels? So did my heroes, the poorly armed fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto. Unlike Israel, Palestinians lack Apache helicopters, guided drones, jet fighters with bombs, laser-guided artillery. Out of impotent defiance, they fire inept rockets, causing terror for innocent Israelis but rarely physical harm. With such a gross imbalance of power, there is no equivalence of culpability.
