How to be safe from the plots and traps of shaytaan

October 13, 2015

Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullah) said in Ighaathatul Luhfaan:

فلَا نَجَاةَ مِنْ مَصَائِدِهِ وَمَكَائِدِهِ إِلَّا بِدَوَامِ الإِسْتَعَانَةِ بِاللهِ تَعَالَى

There is no safety from the traps and plots of shaytaan except by constantly seeking the help of Allaah, The Most High

Whoever Removes a Hardship from a Believer…

June 3, 2012

Abu Huraira – radiallahu anhu – narrated that the Prophet Muhammad – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – said:

مَنْ نَفَّسَ عَنْ مُؤْمِنٍ كُرْبَةٍ مِنْ كُرَبِ الدُّنْيَا

Whoever removes from a Believer a hardship from the hardships of this life (the dunya),


نَفَّسَ اللهُ عَنْهُ كُرْبَةٍ مِنْ كُرَبِ يَوْمِ القِيَامَة

Allah (God) will remove from him a hardship from the hardships of the Day of Judgment

 

وَ مَنْ يَسَّرَ عَلَى مُعْسَرٍ يَسَّرَ اللهُ عَلَيْهِ فِي الدُّنْيَا والآخِرَة

And whoever makes a difficult affair easy, Allah will make things easy for him in this life and the Hereafter

 

وَمَنْ سَتَرَ مُسْلِمًا سَتَرَهُ اللهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا والآخِرَة

And whoever covers a Muslim, Allah will cover him in this life and the Hereafter


وَاللهُ فِي عَوْنِ العَبْدِ مَا كَانَ العَبْدُ فِي عَوْنِ أَخِيْهِ

And Allah comes to the help of His servant as long as (or as much as) the servant comes to the help of his brother

 

وَمَنْ سَلَكَ طَرِيْقًا يَلْتَمِسُ فِيْهِ عِلْمًا

And whoever treads a path seeking (Islamic) knowledge

 

سَهَّلَ اللهُ لَهُ بِهِ طَرِيقًا إِلَى الجَنَّة

Allah will make easy for him by way of it a path to Paradise

 

وَمَا اجْتَمَعَ قَوْمٌ فِي بَيْتٍ مِنْ بُيُوْتِ اللهِ

And a group of people don’t gather in one of the houses of Allah

 

يَتْلُوْنَ كِتَابَ اللهِ

Reciting the Book of Allah

 

وَيَتَدَارَسُوْنَهُ بَيْنَهُمْ

And studying it amongst themselves

 

إِلَّا نَزَلَتْ عَلَيْهِم السَّكِيْنَةُ

Except that tranquility descends upon them

 

وَغَشِيَتْهُم الرَّحْمَة

And mercy covers them

 

وحَفَّتْهُم المَلَأئِكَة

And the angels surround them

 

وذَكَرَهُم اللهُ فِيْمَنْ عِنْدَهُ

And Allah mentions them to those with Him

 

ومَنْ بَطَّأَ بِهِ عَمَلُهُ

And whoever is slowed down by his deeds

 

لَمْ يُسْرِعْ بِهِ نَسَبُهُ

His lineage won’t speed him up
