Introduction Post

Bismilllah (In the Name of Allah)

Assalamu Alaikom (peace be upon you),

I am going to try to be consistent with this blog. First and foremost, I hope this blog will serve as a reminder for me and allow me to make my time on the web more beneficial, iA.

Second, I would like to share articles that interest me.

Third, I want to learn about the blogspace and learn how to navigate it.

I will also try to share some hadiths 9(saying/action of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and in the next forty days, I will try to post at least one hadith every day, iA.

Let me know if you have other ideas on how to make this blog more useful.

Be safe and take care.

May Allah always guide us to the straight path and give us the strength and ability to be sincere and positive influences to the ones around us. Ameen!


Hadith 1:

Umar bin al-Khattab said,
I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying, "The reward of actions depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. Thus, he whose migration was for Allah and His Messenger, his migration was for Allah and his Messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take a woman in marriage, his migration was for that which he migrated. " (Related by Bukharaee and Muslim)

Bit of Commentary from Imam Muhammad ibn Saalih-al Uthaymeen's Explanatory Notes on Imaam an-Nawawee's Forty Hadith:

This Hadeeth is a great foundation regarding the actions of the heart due to the intentions being from the actions of the heart. The scholars have said: This Hadeeth is half of worship because it is the scale of the inward actions.

Assalamu laikum. JAk for your blog. Just a quick note i found interesting: In Zarabazoo's commentary on this particular hadith of Imam Nawawi's 40 hadiths, he says:
"The intention behind a deed is something that only the person and Allah are aware of. It is private between teh person and Allah. There is no way for any insincerity to exist in this matter, as opposed to outward deeds that are seen by others. Therefore, it will be greatly rewarded by Allah as the person cannot seek any worldly benefit from it whatsoever."

it would also be great Nabil if you could post some life's lessons you learn as you go on it's way.

Take care.
