#Soulmates, #Primordial Friends, #Heartbeat-to-Heartbeat
_
It’s really #rare that you actually find people in your life that click, i mean snap-click like #lego, hot #water & #coffee, like you’ve known them all your life. But it’s even more rare that these people are there for you in the moments that you need them. Allāh reward them.
_
“Nothing #hurts a good #soul & the kind #heart more than to live amongst people who can’t understand it.”
_
Imām Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib
_
With this quote by Imām Alī, May Allāh ennoble his face, I did not want to focus on the people who ‘can’t understand’ but on those who do, or try to.
_
Some of the #Lights & #Mountains who i have been #blessed to witness and take knowledge from have mentioned that these ’souls’ that meet in #harmony, as if they have known each other for years, may have been close in the #vicinity of each other on the ‘Day of the #Covenant’, when Allāh, Blessed be He, asked;
_
أَلَسْتُ بِ‍رَبِّكُمْ
_
Alastu Birabbikum
_
“Am i not your #Lord?”
_
Sūratu al-A’rāf [7:172]
_
to which we responded ‘Yea, indeed, You are our Lord, we #testify’
_
Allāh knows best to the validity of this belief but it is a romantic notion.
_
I pray that we are always in the company of those that understand us & bring us closer to our Lord ﷻ.

#Surrender to the #Light
_
To surrender to the Light given from beyond ourselves – to which the inner Light responds – is to develop a passionate appetite for greater Light. 
_
‘O Allāh, appoint for me Light in my heart & Light before me & Light behind me, Light on my right side & Light on my left, Light above me & Light below me, Light in my sight & Light in my perception, Light in my countenance & Light in my flesh, Light in my blood & Light in my bones; increase for me Light & give me Light.”

The #Golden #Chain
_
In each Ḥadīth, there are two elements: sanād or Isnād, & matn. Sanād or Isnād is the chain of narrators of the Ḥadīth, while matn is the text of the Ḥadīth.
_
Imām al-Bukhārī said that the soundest of all chains of Ḥadīth #transmission was “Mālik, from Nãfi’, from Ibn ‘’’Umar.”
_
The scholars of Ḥadīth call it the ‘Golden Chain’, & there are 80 narrations with this chain in Imām Mālik’s Muwaṭṭaʾ
_
Isnād is as follows;
_
The Prophet Muḥammad ﷺ 
_
 ʿAbd Allāh ibn ’Umar
_
Nafi` Mawla ibn `’Umar
-
Mālik ibn Anas ibn Mālik ibn Abī ‘Āmir al-Asbahī
_
Imām Mālik composed al-Muwatta’ in the course of 40 years, having started with 10,000 narrations until he reduced them to their present number of fewer than 2,000. 
_
It is  formed of the #sound narrations
from the Prophet ﷺ together with the sayings of
his companions, their followers, & those
after them. 
_
It was given the name al-Muwaṭṭaʾ as Imām Mālik said, 
_
“I showed my book to 70 scholars of Madīnah, & every single
one of them approved it for me, so I named it ‘The Approved’.”
_
Imām Shafi’i, the founder of the Shafi’i maḏhab also a student of Imām Mālik is reported to have said:
_
ما كتاب بعد كتاب الله أنفع من كتاب مالك بن أنس
_
“There is no book, after Allāh’s Book, more beneficial than Mālik b. Anas’s #book.”

#Mother & #Daughter. A #blessing only #cat lovers can relate to….
_
& for others to #wonder at in amazement :)
_
you can not #control a cat & therefore never own it. So those of you who have cats or are frequented by them, it’s nothing short of a #mercy that they bless you with their company, hence your either a #follower or #lover - or both,
_
Don’t get it twisted, all we do is watch, observe & hope for some love.

#Weight[lessness] of Ṣalawāt
_
Ubayy bin Ka’ab said
_
“I once told the #Messenger of Allāh ﷺ, ‘Yā Rasūl’Allāh , I invoke much. What portion should I offer #salutations upon you?’
_
The Prophet ﷺ replied, “However much you #wish.”
_
To this I asked, “A fourth?”
_
He ﷺ said, “If you wish, but should you increase the number, it will be better for you.”
_
I then asked, “A third?”
_
He ﷺ said, “If you wish, but should you increase the number, it is still better for you.”
_
I then asked, “A half?”
_
He ﷺ said, “If you wish, but should you increase the number, it is still better for you.”
_
I then said, “Indeed in my #invocation, I shall make all of my #prayers upon you!”
_
To this, the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ replied, “If you do that you will be freed from #anxiety & all your wrongs pardoned.”
_

All #night, a man called “Allāh” Until his #lips were #bleeding.
_
Then the #Devil said, 
_
“Hey! Mr Gullible! How come you’ve been calling all night & never once heard Allāh say, “Here, I am”? You call out so earnestly &, in reply, what? I’ll tell you what. Nothing!”
_
The man suddenly felt empty & abandoned. #Depressed, he threw himself on the ground & fell into a deep #sleep.
_
In a #dream, he met Ibrāhīm, who asked, 
_
“Why are you regretting praising Allāh?”
_
The man said, “I called & called, But Allāh never replied, “Here I am.”
_
Ibrāhīm explained, 
_
“Allāh has said,
_
“Your calling my name is My reply.
Your longing for Me is My message to you.
All your attempts to reach Me
Are in reality My attempts to reach you.
Your fear and love are a noose to catch Me.
_
In the #silence surrounding every call of “Allāh”
_
Waits a thousand replies of 
_
“Here I am.”

“God is with the broken-hearted. When your #heart breaks, it’s a good thing – the breaking of the heart is what opens it up to the #Light ofAllāh. The Dunyā is designed to break your heart, to crush it”
_
#Shaykh Ḥamza Yūsuf
_
Solace can be found in the example of the #Prophet Muḥammad ﷺ.
_
Imagine being 50 years old, having just lost both your wife of twenty-five years & your uncle who took care of you as a child. Imagine walking into a town in order to ask people for their protection, & instead have them throw stones at you until your feet bleed. How would you have felt? How exhausted, both #spiritually & #physically, would you have been? & yet, the Prophet ﷺ calls out to Allāh in one of the most #beautiful & heartfelt Duʿā:
_
“O Allāh! To you alone I complain my weakness, my scarcity of resources, & the humiliation I have been subjected to by people. O Most #Merciful of those who have mercy! You are the #Lord of the weak, & You are My Lord too.
_
To whom have you entrusted me? To a distant person who receives me with hostility? Or to an #enemy to whom you have granted authority over my affair?
_
But as long as You are not #angry with me, I do not care, except that Your favour is a more expansive #relief to me. I seek refuge in the Light of Your #Face by which all #darkness is dispelled & every affair of this world & the next is set right, lest Your anger or Your displeasure descend upon me.
_
Yours is the right to reproach until You are pleased. There is no #power & no might except by You.”
