    ar- Raqâ’iq - The Heart Softening Narrations (OP)




    The delights of Paradise surpass the imagination and defy description. They are like nothing known to the people of this world; no matter how advanced we may become, what we achieve is as nothing in comparison with the joys of the Hereafter. As is mentioned in several reports, there is nothing like Paradise:

    "It is sparkling light, aromatic plants, a lofty palace, a flowing river, ripe fruit, a beautiful wife and abundant clothing, in an eternal abode of radiant joy, in beautiful soundly-constructed high houses".
    [Ibn Majah, as-Sunan, Kitab az-Zuhd, Bab Sifat al-Jannah, 2/1448, no. 4332. Ibn Hibban narrated it in his sahîh]

    The Sahabah asked the Prophet about the buildings of Paradise and he replied with a wonderful description:

    "Bricks of gold and silver, and mortar of fragrant musk, pebbles of pearl and sapphire, and soil of saffron. Whoever enters it is filled with joy and will never feel miserable; he will live there forever and never die; their clothes will never wear out and their youth will never fade." [Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, ad-Darimî, Mishkat al-Masabîh, 3/29, sahih].

    Allah indeed spoke the truth when He said:

    "And when you look there [in Paradise] you will see a delight [that cannot be imagined]. And a great dominion" [76:20]

    What Allah has kept hidden from us the delights of Paradise is beyond our ability to comprehend: al-Bukhari reported from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said that Allah said

    "I have prepared for My slaves what no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human heart can imagine". Recite if you wish, "No person know what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do." (32:17).

    In the version reported by Muslim from Abu Hurayrah, there is the addition,

    "Never mind what Allah has told you; what He has not told you is EVEN greater".

    It is reported from Abu Sulaymaan ad-Daarini (rahimahullah) that he said:
    "Tooba (the tree in paradise) is for the one who took a single step desiring nothing but the face of Allaah by it".
    One of the people of wisdom used to say:
    "When a man is speaking in a gathering and his speech amazes him, let him be silent. And when he keeps silent and his silence amazes him, let him speak."

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    The father of Abee Aasim said: I heard my son narrate from Abu Abdullaah al-Kasaa`ee; I heard ibn Abee Aasim say:
    When the affair of al-Alawee occurred in Basrah all of my books were lost, so I re-wrote fifty thousand ahaadeeth from memory. I used to go to the greengrocers’ shop and write using the light of his lamp. Then I realised that I had not asked the permission of the owner of the lamp [to sit in its light] so I went to the sea and washed away all I had written and wrote it again.

    [Ibn Katheer, ‘al-Bidaayah wan Nihaayah’ (11/96); adh-Dhahabee, ‘Siyar’ (13/430-439); Ibn Hajr, ‘Lisaan al-Meezaan’ (7/298)]

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    Your life in the present moment is in between the past and the future. So what has preceded can be rectified by tawbah (repentance), nadam (regret) and istighfar (seeking Allaah’s forgiveness). And this is something that will neither tire you, nor cause you to toil as you would with strenuous labour. Rather it is an action of the heart. Then as regards the future (then it can be corrected) by withholding yourself from sins. And this abandonment is merely the leaving of something and to be at ease from it. This also is not action of the limbs, which requires you to strive and toil. Rather this is a firm resolve and intention of the heart – which will give rest to your body, heart and thoughts. So as for what has preceded, then you rectify it with repentance. And as for the future – then you rectify it with firm resolve and intention. Neither of these involves any hardship or exertion of the limbs. But then your attention must be directed to your life in the present - the time between two times. If you waste it, then you have wasted the opportunity to be of the fortunate and saved ones. If you look after it, having rectified the two times – what is before and after it, as we have said – then you will be successful and achieve rest, delight and ever-lasting bliss. However, looking after it is harder than that which comes before and after it, since guarding it involves keeping to that which is most befitting and beneficial for your soul, and that which will bring it success and well-being.

    Yoonus Ibn 'ubayd (d.139H)-rahimahullaah-said:

    "With good manners you understand the knowledge. With the knowledge, your actions are corrected. With actions, wisdom is obtained. With wisdom you understand zuhd (abstinence) and are granted its benefits. With zuhd comes abandoning the world. With abandoning the world comes desire for the Hereafter. With desire for the Hereafter the pleasure of Allaah-Mighty and Majestic-is obtained.

    : Iqtidaa'ul'Illmil'Amal(no.31).

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    From the Sunnah of Allah, is that when He decides to champion His religion, He gives rise to those who oppose it; thereby establishing the Truth with His Words, and dashing the Truth upon falsehood, smashing its brains, and behold, it vanishes! (21:18)

    (Sheikh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyya, during his last imprisonment, a few months before his demise, writes these lines using coal)

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    Never do I argue with a man with a desire to hear him say what is wrong, or to expose him and win victory over him. Whenever I face an opponent in debate I silently pray - O Lord, help him so that truth may flow from his heart and on his tongue, and so that if truth is on my side, he may follow me; and if truth be on his side, I may follow him.
    [Imam Ash-Shafi’i]

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    'Unlawful desires are usually associated with ugliness. They leave behind a lingering sensation of pain and guilt. Hence, whenever you are tempted, think about liberating yourself. Think about all the remorse that would accompany the realisation of those desires, and then make up your mind. Struggling your way through obedience is not an easy task. It is, however, associated with goodness and soothing pleasures. Whenever you overburden yourself (with unlawful desires) think about how nice it would be to repent and set yourself free. Think about the pleasures that lawful desires will provide and try to make the correct choice. The dilemma you will experience should be reduced by remembering the sweet pleasure and the ultimate happiness that your obedience (to Allah) will provide. Also make your struggle less of one by picturing the punishment that follows disobedience to Allah. Logically your mind should opt for the more rewarding option and help you to endure the pain of denying yourself the realisation of such desires.'

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    A righteous man was given the news that on of his companions had died, and so he went to the family of the deceased to console them. When he arrived there, there were screaming and crying in very loud voices. He said:
    “Indeed the one we lost was not your provider; the One Who provides for you is Ever-lasting and never dies. The one you lost did not block off the holes in the ground that belonged to you, for all he did was fill his own hole (i.e., fill his own grave). Indeed, each of you, by Allah, will fill his hole. Indeed when Allah (the Exalted) created the world, He decreed destruction for it, and death for its inhabitants. No experience permeates a household except that that household then becomes filled with a lesson. And no group gathers among themselves except that they will soon be parted, and then it is Allah (the Exalted) Who will be the One Who inherits the earth and all that is on it. Whoever from you is crying, then let him cry over himself, for the destination of your companion (i.e., the deceased) is the destination of all people tomorrow.”

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    Ibn Al-Jowzee said:

    "If this Dunya was not a station of tests it would not be filled with sicknesses and filth. If life were not about hardship, then the Prophets and the pious would have lived the most comfortable of lives. Nay, Adam suffered test after test until he left the Dunya. Nuh cried for 300 years. Ibrahim was thrown into a pit of fire and later told to slaughter his son. Ya'qub cried until he became blind. Musa challenged Fir'own and was tested by his people. Eeasa had no provision except the morsels his disciples provided him with. And Muhammad (SAW) met poverty with patience, his uncle - one of the most beloved relatives to him - was slain and mutilated and his people disbelieved in him ... and the list of Prophets and the pious goes on and on."

    "If you guarantee me six things on your part I shall guarantee you Paradise : Speak the truth when you talk, keep a promise when you make it, when you are trusted with something fulfill your trust, avoid sexual immorality, lower your gaze (in modesty), and restrain your hands from injustice."

    [Al Tirmidhi, Hadith 1260]


    Ibn Umar reported that the Prophet (pbuh) said: "Do not indulge in empty useless talk without the remembrance of Allah, for excessive talk without Allah's remembrance hardens the heart; and the person farthest from Allah is the one who has a hard heart"

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    If your heart is enslaved by someone who is forbidden for him: One of the main causes for this miserable situation is turning away from Allah, for once the heart has tasted worship of Allah and sincerity towards Him, nothing will be sweeter to it than that, nothing will be more delightful or more precious. No one leaves his beloved except for another one he loves more, or for fear of something else. The heart will give up corrupt love in favour of true love, or for fear of harm.

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    Al-Hasan Al-Basri said,
    “Every day the sun rises it calls upon us, “Oh people! I am a new day; I am an observer of your actions. Take advantage of me for I will not return until the Day of Judgment.” “Oh, son of Adam you are nothing but a few breaths. Once one breath goes out, part of you goes with it. In the same way that part of you has gone, soon all of you will go.”
    Ibn Al-Qayyim said,
    “Every gulp of air that goes out in a cause other than the cause of Allah (SWT) will turn to sorrow and regret on the Day of Judgment.” He also said, “A sign that Allah (SWT) despises you is when you find yourself wasting your time with trivial matters; in this way you miss your chance of going to heaven. And a sign that Allah (SWT) likes you is when you find yourself fulfilling more duties than you have time for.” A saying goes, ‘The devil makes work for idle thumbs.’ If you want to know whether Allah (SWT) is pleased with you, then think: Are you busy or idle?"

    Al-Muhasiby said,

    “I wish that time could be acquired with money. If so I would buy time from wasteful and ungrateful people so that I could spend it serving Allah (SWT).”

    Ibn Masoud said,
    “I never regretted anything except a day that passed by without having increased my deeds.”

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    Concerning the Imaam, the Shaykh - Muhammad ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen (rahima-hullaah), it has been narrated:
    “Once, King Khaalid (rahima hullaah) visited the Shaykh at his house, as was the habit of the rulers in their high regard and respect for the scholars. And when the King saw the humble home of the Shaykh he offered to have a new house built for him, (at which) the Shaykh thanked him saying:

    “I am building a house in (the district of) as-Saalihiyyah (a district in ‘Unayzah, Qaseem), however, the masjid and the charitable trust are in need of (financial) assistance. So, after the King left, some of those sitting in the gathering said: O Shaykh, we did not know that you were building a home in as-Saalihiyyah, (to which) the Shaykh replied:

    “Isn’t the graveyard in as-Saalihiyyah!?”

    Concerning the Imaam, the Shaykh - Muhammad ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen (rahima-hullaah), it has been narrated by Shaykh Badar ibn Naadir al-Mashaaree:

    "When he returned from America after (medical) treatment, he was asked as to his health and condition. So the Shaykh said some words worthy of being written in gold:

    "Know that both illness and good health do not come before or after their (decreed) time. Indeed my time has been written and your time has been written (even) before Allaah created the heavens and the earth. So believe in this, for certainly I have believed in this."

    الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الإِسْلاَمَ دِي



    This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm as your religion. (5:3)


    Narrated Tariq bin Shihab:
    A Jew said to 'Umar, "O Chief of the Believers, if this verse: 'This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favors upon you, and have chosen for you, Islam as your religion.' (5.3) had been revealed upon us, we would have taken that day as an 'Id (festival) day." 'Umar said,

    "I know definitely on what day this Verse was revealed; it was revealed on the day of 'Arafat, on a Friday."
    [Bukhari]


    Narrated Al-Bara':
    I heard the Prophet (p.b.u.h) delivering a Khutba saying, "The first thing to be done on this day (first day of 'Id ul Adha) is to pray; and after returning from the prayer we slaughter our sacrifices (in the name of Allah) and whoever does so, he acted according to our Sunna (traditions)."
    [Bukhari]

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    It is reported from Adiyya ibn Haatim that he said:
    "The people destined for the Fire will be ordered (to come) towards Paradise until they come close to it and smell its fragrance, see its palaces and what Allaah has prepared in it for its people. Then an announcement will be made for them to be turned away from it. There will be no portion for them in it. They will return in loss and ruin just like the ones before them (who were also commanded likewise). Then they will say: "O Our Lord! If You had entered us into the Fire before You showed us what You have shown us from Your reward and what You have prepared for Your friends and allies, it would have been easier upon us". Then the Exalted will say: "This is what I intended for you. When you used to be alone, you would combat Me (or show boldness to Me) with grave sins and when you used to meet people, you would meet them with humility. You would show to the people other than that which you used to give Me from your hearts. You feared people but you did not fear Me. You honoured the people but you did not honour Me. You abandoned (actions) for the people but you did not abandon for Me. This day (therefore) will I make you taste a tormenting punishment along with your prevention from receiving that reward"

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    It is reported from Ibn Mas'ood (ra) that he said,
    "Do not learn knowledge for three (things): to amaze and confound the foolish, to argue with the learned, and to make people's faces turn towards you. (But) seek what is with Allaah with your hearts and actions, since only that will remain and whatever is besides it will go".

    Re: Ar-Riqaq - The Heart Softeners

    Ibn ‘Abbas reported, the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said [to a group of companions]:
    “When you pass by the gardens of Paradise indulge freely in it! They said: O Messenger of Allaah! What are the gardens of Paradise? He said: The circles of ‘Ilm.”
