    Bismillahi Rahmanir Raheem

    Salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

    Dr. Reda Bedair, is teaching "The Eternal Journey", an Al-Maghrib course, which discusses the tafseer of Juz Tabarak. I am going to share, some of his quotes, which has touched my heart. We call them "The Eternal Journey Gems".

    "How many times do we make dua and never receive and answer? Or try to pray with khusoo by forcing tears from our eyes without success?
    Why does this happen? because the accumulation of our sins has placed a barrier between us and Allah subhana wa ta'la."

    ----"SubhanAllah means that Allah SWT is far from imperfection and Allah SWT is perfect in his name, attributes and acts."

    ----"Capture your heart functioning in three situations :
    1) When reciting the Qur'an
    2)When sitting in a gathering
    3)When sitting alone "

    AlMaghrib Gems

    سبحان الله و بحمده عدد خلقه و رضا نفسه و زنة عرشه و مداد كلمات

    Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinatah `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi

    [Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words (for His Praise)].''[Sahih Muslim].

    The recitation of the words quoted in this Hadith is highly meritorious and rewarding because they are full of Praise and Glorification of Allah.

    Expression that is most loved by Allah - Abu Dharr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to me, "Shall I tell you the expression that is most loved by Allah?'' It is `Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi' (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)'.''
    [Sahih Muslim].

    The more acts of worship you do, the more shaytaan will be there. the more shaytaan will be there, the harder the test. the harder the test, the closer you get to allah. the closer you get to allah, the stronger your iman. the stronger your iman, the weaker shaytaan is. the weaker shaytaan is, the more acts of worship you do. the more acts of worship you do, the easier they become. the easier they become, the easier the test. then, and only then, will you realise that every single moment of your life, what ever happens to you, good or bad, is a test from allah. nothing then, can harm you, not even the acts of other people, no broken family, no divorce, no argument, no disappointment. you will always be happy, always be content with what Allah has given you. that my friend, is how you live your life. not by avoiding the potential tests, trials and tribulations!

    Gem from one of the class of AlMaghrib by Dr. Reda Bedeir -

    If someone asked you how old you were...what would you reply? 20 years old, 18 years old or 46 years old. This is the age of the body, but do you know when we start measuring the life of a person in Islam.

    The “real” life begins when you develop a realtionship with Allah subhana wa ta'la. So you could have a body of 80 years but have a real age of 0 or be 16 and have a real age of 10. subhan'Allah

    Gem:

    Is turning to Allah subhana wa ta'la our initial reaction or is it our last resort? when you face a dilemma or a difficult situation in life do we first put our heads down in sujood or do we exhaust every option and when we have lost all hope turn to our local Imams or Shaykhs to make dua for us. He is human too, in need of Allah's help just like you.

    Whenever the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa salam would face an issue which brought him distress or relief he would turn to Allah first and foremost.

    Gem:

    Never say you'll do anything without saying "insha Allah". By saying it, you are acknowledging how powerless you are and how Powerful Allah is.

    SubhanAllah,
    How strikingly true it is. But those who take such an approach due so because they cannot accept the consequences of their actions, which inevitably will lead to feeling of remorse and hence it is much easier to live in denial and seek forgiveness without truly feeling the weight of guilt.
    If you ask me, feeling guilt is a good thing as it makes us stronger and better people. In short, it leads to inspiration and forces us to correct our mistakes.

    P.S. Isn't it there a hadeeth stating 'if you harm some1 and do not seek forgiveness from them, Allah will not forgive you"?

    W/Salam

    Mujâhid said: “Beautiful patience is patience without any panic.” ‘Amr ibn Qays said: “Beautiful patience means to be content with adversity and to surrender to the will of Allâh.” Commenting on the meaning of beautiful patience, Qiyas ibn al- Hajjâj said: “The person who is suffering from some affliction should behave in such a way that nobody is able to distinguish him from others.”

    Submissiveness to Allah from the one expressing gratitude; loving Him for it; acknowledging His favour; praising Him for it; and not utilizing it in a way that displeases Him”
