You will see BROTHERS tonight who are clean shaven, tight jeans, with short back and sides or you might see a BROTHER who you haven’t seen in the MASJID for the whole year and he suddenly turns up..
Don’t eyeball him or rebuke him, don’t become the RELIGIOUS POLICE. Rather go up to him and give some LOVE. We were also once like him and then ALLAAH-The Mighty and the Majestic guided us. You never know, he might be guided through your words/Character…
The Characteristics of True Brotherhood in ISLAAM:
Shaykh Abdul-Aziz Ibn Baaz رحمه الله said:“A true Muslim BROTHER is one who keeps advising, reminding and directing you to the straight PATH. He never keeps himself away from you nor flatters you. Rather, he gives you counsel and admonishes you. He reminds you to be mindful of ALLAAH. He shows you the PATH of SALVATION so that you can follow it and warns you of treading the path of PERDITION so that you can steer clear of it.
”[Majmoo` Fataawa of Shaykh Ibn Baz]…
A POET once said:
ﻣﻠﻌﻘﺔ ﻣﻦ ﺳﻜﺮ ﺗﻐﻴﺮ ﺑﻬﺎ ﻣﺬﺍﻕ ﺍﻟﺸﺎﻱ .. ﻭﻛﻠﻤﺔ ﻃﻴﺒﺔ ﺗﻐﻴﺮ
ﺑﻬﺎ ﻧﻈﺮﺓ ﺍﻵﺧﺮﻳﻦ ﻋﻨﻚ ﺇﺫﺍ كان ﺍﻟﺠﻤﺎﻝ يجذﺏ ﺍﻟﻌﻴﻮﻥ.َ
فاﻷﺧﻼﻕ ﺗﻤﻟﻚ ﺍﻟﻘﻠﻮﺏ
“A spoon of sugar changes the taste of tea .A good WORD changes the view of others regarding you. As BEAUTY catches the attention, Character controls the HEART”.
…May Allah give us a better understanding & guide us to accept the truth
