GEMS: Journey of Faith (Part 11)

GEMS: Journey of Faith (Part 11)

◆ When there is no barakah in your wealth, your money will easily flow out for useless reasons (where you won't benefit from the spending).

◆ It doesn't mean that if you learn something, you will understand it. Those who understand, will actually apply the knowledge.

◆ Allah SWT does not mention the details of certain matters to make things easy for us.
Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 101:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَسْأَلُوا عَنْ أَشْيَاءَ إِن تُبْدَ لَكُمْ تَسُؤْكُمْ وَإِن تَسْأَلُوا عَنْهَا حِينَ يُنَزَّلُ الْقُرْآنُ تُبْدَ لَكُمْ عَفَا اللَّهُ عَنْهَا وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ حَلِيمٌ

O you who believe! Ask not about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. But if you ask about them while the Quran is being revealed, they will be made plain to you. Allah has forgiven that, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Forbearing.
(English - Mohsin Khan)

◆ If The Creator addresses His Messenger SAWS with the most dignified way, then we should at least do the same.

◆ Hadith explains the Quran. We need to use both as our sources of guidance.

◆ In general, raising one's voice in an argument is a sign that the argument itself is weak.

◆ Disrespecting the Messenger of Allah may cause your deeds to be rejected.
Surah Al-Hujraat, Verse 2:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَرْفَعُوا أَصْوَاتَكُمْ فَوْقَ صَوْتِ النَّبِيِّ وَلَا تَجْهَرُوا لَهُ بِالْقَوْلِ كَجَهْرِ بَعْضِكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ أَن تَحْبَطَ أَعْمَالُكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ

O you who believe! Raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet (SAW), nor speak aloud to him in talk as you speak aloud to one another, lest your deeds may be rendered fruitless while you perceive not.
(English - Mohsin Khan)

◆ The companions gave up their lives so that we can get the clear message of Islam. Appreciate it!

◆ A lesson from Surah Al Hujurat: Do not raise your voice above those of higher status (not referring to social class) out of respect (i.e., elders, teachers or those with more knowledge or who are leading matters in Muslim society) even if you disagree with them.
