The reason why I make “Islamic posts” on here is because writing down stuff helps me remember it better. If I learn something new, I want to write it down. And if I’m going to write something down, I might as well share it with others too. Win-win situation!

Regarding the Quran teaching us that we should leave knowledge that does not benefit us alone, I’ll give you an example. Take Surah Kahf. The Quran tells us that the people of the cave were young men, but it didn’t tell us how many of them were there. Why? Because it didn’t matter.
Fun fact: You can actually estimate how many there were through linguistic analysis if you want to. And this is where you realize how much you’re missing out by just reading an English translation of the Quran without learning Arabic.
If you read 18:19 in the Quran, the English translation reads “And similarly, We awakened them that they might question one another. Said a speaker from among them, “How long have you remained [here]?” They said, “We have remained a day or part of a day.” They said, “Your Lord is most knowing of how long you remained. So send one of you with this silver coin of yours to the city and let him look to which is the best of food and bring you provision from it and let him be cautious. And let no one be aware of you.”
Bunch of he said, they said, they said. But the beauty of Arabic is that every letter is significant and has a whole different meaning when added.
First came: The first word means that one person is talking.
Next: ”qaalu” is used for when at least 3 people are talking.
Next: Again, “qaalu” is used. That means 3 people are talking. If you pay attention, you know that there are at least 4 people present. But you could make an argument for at least 7 people.
By just reading the English translation of the Quran, you miss out on the juicy little details that makes the Quran amazing and perfect.
It doesn’t matter, yo. It’s all in the past. There is certain knowledge that does not benefit you. The Quran teaches us that such knowledge is not important and we should just leave it.
Here’s how I see the Abu Eesa situation. He made a mistake. Whether he repented or not is between Allah and him. Your judgement means nothing. But imagine all the backbiting and stuff that’s being done AGAINST him. All the good deeds of those people are going straight to Abu Eesa. I’m no supporter for feminism nor am I against it. What I am is a Muslim and I was taught by our prophet(Pbuh) to be kind and not judge anyone, even if they have wronged you.
You must maintain silence for long periods of time for verily it drives Shaitan away and helps you in matters of your faith.

Too much love or too much knowledge without both together is very dangerous. The Christians had too much love yet little knowledge about Prophet Isa, so they ended up making him son of God. Nowadays, Muslims have too much knowledge and too little love for Islam. You can see the results; everyone thinks they’re right and we have so many sects fighting each other. We need to learn to guide our love and gain knowledge in the right way.
No lol. Thank God.
And which hadith says this?
A hadith is a saying of the prophet. The prophet was not alive at this time. Therefore, there is no hadith. But that does not mean this event did not occur. I have 2 sources for what I wrote. One is that I heard it from Moulana Tariq Jamil aka one of the greatest scholars alive. Second is that I googled it and I did find it. Trust me, I don’t throw around stuff without double checking it.
I stopped using Tumblr because I felt like the only thing people really use it for is making excuses about life and complaining, myself included. At some point, you realize this is pretty dumb and ask yourself, “what the hell am I doing?” You can only blame others for “breaking you” or “leaving your life” and stuff for so long. You gotta move on, people. Get yourself busy with the right things.
The only reason I’m on Tumblr today is because I have a paper due tomorrow lol. When I need to procrastinate again, I’ll be back.
I find this more rude than the previous anon. :O
Do not fight fire with fire. Be kind to even those who wrong you.
Umm…surprise! I was never dead?
We all know that Umar Ibn Al-Khattab was one of the greatest rulers who cared more about his people than himself. He used to monitor very closely the public policy and had kept the needs of the public central to his leadership approach. As second caliph of Islam, he refused to chop off the hands of the thieves because he felt he had fallen short of his responsibility to provide meaningful employment to all his subjects. As a ruler of a vast kingdom, His vision was to ensure that every one in his kingdom should sleep on a full stomach.
You’d think someone so caring as him would be granted paradise immediately, right? Well look at this.
Abdullah ibn `Umar was reported to have said that he saw his father in his dream 12 years after his death. His father was sweating aggressively. When asked what happened, he replied that he had just finished giving account concerning all the people he ruled over. Now it was time to give account for his own deeds.
Subhan’Allah. If this was the case of someone like Umar, then imagine how our modern day rulers and presidents will fare when it’s their turn to give account.
