I love you kiri ❤
Now this Osho man here, he’s GOTTA be kidding me! This is the second quote by this guy which seriously makes me wonder… Seems like a very troubled soul! Never gonna get how gazillions of people can indulge into this kind of philosophy. So here’s what he said that reminded me how his other quote had ticked me off.
And actually, on the contrary, the capacity to be alone and one enjoying his company all alone, all by himself… Wouldn’t that completely reflect a selfish trait? Which can’t be a positive thing, or can it? Unless one is running away in the other direction if he sees the opposite one leading towards Dajjal, well I’m sure that kind of selfishness would be globally acceptable amongst the Muslims at least 🙂 And logically, the other part would be incorrect. As per this Osho dude, “only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person”; If people are by themselves and *tick tick* ALONE, they would surely want and desire to be loved, well probably. And how would being alone increase one’s capacity of the ability to share? It can certainly make one stupid, and in their last days, sadly, leave them wondering how beautiful life could have been had they been a part of someone else’s life and involved others in their own; ’cause the truth in fact is that “Sharing is Caring”. If one is alone, he probably would develop a habit of the kind of privacy for his possessions that would annoy him if he is ever expected to share. So, excuse me but *ehem ehem* I gotta lmao. And OH MY DEAR GOD! How can one, who is capable of being alone go deeper into the soul of another? Sorry Osho man! That did not really sink in. And this thing where he associates love with possession is a completely different subject…
Love is not about possession. Those who love, value people, and not things. Things can be possessed. Not love. An infant is dependent on the 2 people who love him the most, and with time as the child grows, the parents are dependent on their offspring’s love and support. That dependency, has other names. It comprises of not just love and support, but also infinite respect, trust, a bond like no other, compassion and several other emotions that build the essence of the relationship in its entirety. A child and his parents is just one example… there are several more. The dependency such relations have on one another is far from material possessions and their importance.
Going forward, to me, love being an addiction seems more like a Psychotic disorder which reminds of me some creatures who were obsessed with the idea that every person they met were either totally into them or had a problem with them, so yeah, they were basically too full of themselves. Sorry for sounding mean, but that’s the truth. The latter part of this quote is utterly disturbing for me to elaborate upon, so I shall instead go now and happily indulge into a much sane, n absolutely fictitious adaptation of a Mughal romantic novel by Indu Sundaresan.,
By the way, I have nothing against Osho. Some of his reads are actually quite interesting and thought provoking. This is solely my personal opinion upon a couple of quotes by him. Adieu 🙂
It is indeed. May Allah fill human hearts with compassion. May He guide us all to understand the difference between the basics of right n wrong. May He give us the sense to understand the gravity of issues asssociated with severing blood n other close relations, and especially aqal to think a thousand times before speaking bad bout *anyone*. May He give us aqal to think a gazillion times before hurting other hearts.. May Allah soften our hearts n keep us safe n away from all evil that has the slightest power to harden it. In shaa’Allah ta’alaah n ameen. Salamoalikum wa rehmatullah.
When Shaytan reminds you of your past,
remind him of his future!
I absolutely loved this nasheed shared by one of my friends. Thank you.. you know who you are.. n u know, I needed this.. Thanks.. 🙂
Shine your mercy like the sun,
And be gracious as the earth
Let your kindness come like rain that cares not whom it falls upon
And let ocean deep your wisdom be,
Your heart and lanterns spreading peace
Give yourself in love of him,
Be like al-habib
And in your deepest needs and in your deepest grieve,
Call on him in humility
Place your trust in the one,
To whom creation turns
You’ll find redemption and find peace
[In shaa Allah :)]
Fabrication or modification of any sort in the religion of Islam is a bidaah and is therefore prohibited. Allah subhanahu wa Ta’Alaah in Surah Al’ An’am’s ayah # 93 has said,
“And who can be more unjust than he who invents a lie against Allah, or says: “A revelation has come to me” whereas no Revelation has come to him in anything; and who says, “I will reveal the like of what Allah has revealed.” And if you could but see when the Zalimun (polytheists & wrongdoers) are in the agonies of death, while the angels are stretching forth their hands (saying): “Deliver your souls! This day you shall be recompensed with the torment of regradation because of what you used to utter against Allah other than the truth. And you used to reject His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) with disrespect!”
May Allah keep us all in His hifzoamaan, and may He guide us towards Siraatal- Mustaqeem, the Straight Path.

The following report on the merits of fasting is being circulated via emails and text messages, with some even quoting it from the pulpit! The narration is baseless and has no authentic chain. The report should NOT be forwarded on to others unless you are pointing out its fabrication.
“Once Mūsā (peace be upon him) asked Allah: O Allah ! You have granted me the honor and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person? Allah replied, O! Mūsā during the last period I am going to send a nation, who will be the nation of Muḥammad (peace be upon him) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger- will call out to me (in supplication) they will be much closer to me than you O Mūsā! While you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me, but at the time of ifṭār (fast breaking) there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting person from the nation of Muḥammad (peace be upon him) O! Mūsā I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of ifṭār I will never refuse the supplication of a fasting person!”

One of my teachers shared this on the forum:
Imam al-Shafi`i (rahimahullah) once said: “There’s an ayah in the Qur’an that is like an arrow in the heart of every oppressor and at the same time a source of comfort for the heart of the oppressed.”
People asked: “What is it?”
He said: “And never is your Lord forgetful [Surat Maryam: 64]
There’s an amazing thing about broken hearts. When you don’t get what you want, you discover a need. When you discover a need, you begin to ask. When a request is unfulfilled, you keep asking. Sometimes He doesn’t give you what you ask for when He wants to give you something more. Sometimes He doesn’t give us right away because He knows there’s something better. Or so we can keep asking. Because it is in the process of begging that we are elevated and brought nearer. It is in the process of asking that we are brought to the foot of His thrown. It is your need and helplessness that drove you to His throne. He deprives to give.

Thank you brother Bilal Phillips for this reminder yet again!
You know how it is when one under a lot of pressure and anxiety begins asking to oneself WHY?? WHY ME? WHY NOW? WHY HERE? WHY WHY WHY??? We have the tendency and so we just keep forgetting and in the end feel helpless.. and finally, exhausted, expectantly look up into the sky searching for an answer.. secretly praying.. hmmm.. depressing!
You know what pal, He does listen! He does guide!
Here’s the latest status update of Brother Bilal Phillips on the matter.. we need to realize where we go wrong.. patience indeed, is the one key.
The One Key it is! Have Patience.. keep sabr.

Allaah not only said: “Surely with every difficulty comes ease,” (94):6 but he also repeated the statement for special emphasis, word for word, in the verse following it. This is a divine promise of mercy, wherein, Allaah clearly states that He would never continuously burden an individual. There will always be a time of ease following all periods of hardships, therefore, man is enjoined to have Sabr (patience) at all times. It is man’s impatience which drives him to act impetuously, prematurely choosing what appears to be the easy way out, even though it falls under what has been forbidden. Impatience is a part of man’s nature, for Allaah Himself said: “Man was created hasty.” (21):37.
Consequently, the great reward in store for the righteous can only be attained if patience is exercised and the path of righteousness is followed especially in times of difficulty and temptation.
