Sh. Abu Eesa: Benefits of Pak.’s Cricket Defeat

Posted in Scrutinizing Soliloquies with tags , , on March 30, 2011 by Ibby'sMom

‘Folks, if we were to call upon Allah everyday like we have been over this cricket match I swear we’d never taste fear or sadness ever again.’ [Sh. Abu Eesa]

I care less about Cricket and I feel like sending hate mail to everyone who watched it religiously. Khayr, I have shortcomings of my own.And they may be slightly more in number and greater in burden. May Allah SWT forgive me! Ameen.

BUT, I like how Sh. Abu Eesa takes a positive (AND humorous as always) attitude towards it.

If you feel down about this whole thing, you can read his excuses right here.

May Allah SWT bless him. May Allah SWT bless Muslims who watched this match with thori si ‘aqal.Ameen.

Hours wasted. Won’t even get a chance for a single second to redeem those empty moments on Youm al Qiyamah. Esp. here in North America where this time could’ve been used for Qiyam al-Layl. Allahu Akbar what a tragedy! Pakistanis should be crying for the time lost rather than the loss in game. *sigh*

And Allah SWT knows best.

I want you to envy me…

“You should not envy anybody except for two: a man to whom Allaah has given the Qur’aan, so he recites it night and day, so that another man says, ‘If I were given what he has been given I would so the same as he does’; and a man to whom Allaah has given wealth, so he spends it appropriately, and another man says, ‘If I were given what he has been given I would so the same as he does’.” [Reported by al-Bukhaari, 6974]

Lesson: to be able to be part of something huge, you have to come to its level, decrease your size of ego and possibly lose your previous identity. This is in context of becoming part of anything khayr.

Effect of a Righteous Woman

“A righteous woman with a man is like a great gold-leafed crown on the head of a king, and a bad woman with a man is like a heavy weight upon an old man.” [Ibn Abî Al-Shaybah, Al-Musannaf article 17428.]
