My thoughts on Respect & Love:

Standard

Question:
What is the best way to ensure that you will be respected & loved?
Answer:
Never give anyone the option to disrespect you or hate you.

Ensuring respect is based upon a Prophetic-Statement from Muhammad (Peace be upon him), when he mentioned about the proper conduct that a Muslim must/should have, “The Muslim is one who protects others from his speech & actions.”(an-Nawawi) The reason why this is important is because to cause harm to someone, because of what you say and/or do, is something that Allah has forbidden, when He mentions, based upon another statement of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) that, “Oh, My property (meaning the Creation)!!! Verily, I (meaning Allah) have made oppression unlawful upon Myself, as well as between you. So, do not oppress one another!!!” (an-Nawawi). When we respect the rights that Allah possesses over the Creation, He will in turn, respect us. And, when we respect the rights of the Creation, then Allah will place respect in the hearts of the Creation for us.

Ensuring love is based upon a Prophetic-Statement from Muhammad (Peace be upon him), when he was asked about being loved by both Allah & the people. The Prophet (Peace be upon him) responded by saying, referring to attaining the love of Allah, “…to worship Allah, without associating any false-qualities with Him.”. And, he also responded by saying, referring to attaining the love of the people, “…to not violate the property of others.” (an-Nawawi). The reason why this is important is because when we worship our Creator properly, we will in turn, attain His love. And, when we honor the property of the people, subsequently, He will place love within the hearts of the Creation for us.

  1. I am also commenting to make you understand of the remarkable discovery my friend’s princess found checking your web page. She discovered some pieces, which included what it’s like to possess a marvelous giving mindset to let other people without hassle know precisely specific very confusing matters. You truly exceeded my expectations. Many thanks for churning out such helpful, trustworthy, explanatory and fun guidance on that topic to Lizeth.

  2. Never be someone’s priority when you are only their option!! Too many times do we tend to put our faith in trust in those other than Allah (SWA), when He is the one who is Ar-Razaq “The Provider”. I was recently reading a fatwa about Love and there was a quote in there from Ibn Taymiyyah (May Allah have Mercy on him), where he said:

    “If the heart is devoid of the love and remembrance of the Most Merciful, and is a stranger to speaking to Him, it will be filled with love of women/men, images and listening to music;If the heart loves Allaah alone and is sincerely devoted to Him, it will not even think of loving anyone else in the first place, let alone falling in love. When a heart falls in love, that is due to the lack of love for Allaah alone.”

    I don’t visit your page often{<<that's about to change :-)}, but everytime I come there is always something that catches my interest MashAllah. May Allah bless us to be amongst those who stay in constant remembrance of Him and He alone,and May Allah reward you for the naseeha that you provide to the people non'muslim and muslim Ameen Ya Rabb.

    #Keep em' coming InshAllah!!
