From Qur'an || From Hadith

From Qur'an Surah Al-An'am (The Cattle) 6:164

Say: "Shall I seek a lord other than Allah, while He is the Lord of all things? No person earns any (sin) except against himself (only), and no bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another. Then unto your Lord is your return, so He will tell you that wherein you have been differing."

None can bare the burden of another... meaning each of us are responsible for our own actions in this life. we better be sure that we are following the correct understanding of Islam, within the guidelines of the Qur'an and the Sunnah... cause on the day of judgment we will not be able to point fingers at any one else.. not even our sheikhs, imams or maulanas. May Allah (swt) give us the correct understanding of Islam and help us to abide by all aspects of it.

Be Careful of what you say!

Ibn ‘Umar said the Prophet said:

“O people! Indeed, you will die and you will go to Allah. May Allah have mercy on an ‘Abd (servant of Allah) who talked and earned goodness, or kept quiet and stayed safe.”

“Indeed, the tongue controls the person more than anything else.”

“Surely, all the human’s talk is against him except the remembrance of Allah, or bidding good, or forbidding evil, or making peace between the believers is for him.”

Mu’adh said: “O Messenger of Allah! Will we be judged by what we say?”

He said: “Is there anything which throws people into Hell except the harvest of their tongues? He who wants to be safe, he should control what his tongue says, and guard his heart, and do good deeds and limit his hopes.”

A few days later, the following verse was revealed:

“There is no good in much of their secret conferences save (in) him who=2 0enjoins sadaqah (charity) or kindness or peace-making among the people. Whoso does that, seeking the good pleasure of Allah, We shall bestow on him a vast reward.” (an-Nisa’ 4:114)
