Beautiful Advice: “… and seek the Face of Allah swt thereby”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله رب العالمين وصلى الله وسلم على رسول الله وعلى آله وأصحابه ومن اهتدى بهديه إلى يوم الدين


This was a post I saw on a fb page and it shook something within me which I had been unable to demolish for the past few weeks. It moved me, crushed the hardness within me and brought tears of thankfulness for this Deen. But that’s not the reason why I wanted to share it.

In it, you will find the true meaning of taqwa (God consciousness), shukr, sabr and tawakul by being a means of mercy to the entire world in the practical sense.

The advice is so simple and beautiful. SubhanAllah, it brought much coolness to my heart. May Allah swt make it a means of benefit for all of us in both worlds. Ameen!


لا تدع الناس يعرفون عنك سوى سعادتك! ولا يرون مــنك إلا ابتسامتك فإن ضاقت عليك ! ففي القرآن جنتك . . وإن المتك وحدتك فإلى السماء دعوتك ! وإن سألوك عن أخبارك !! فأحمد الله و أبتسـم

“Let not the people come to know except of your happiness, and let them not see except your smile. If life becomes constricted upon you, then within the Qur’an lies your orchard. If you feel curtailed and restricted, then to the heavens raise your call. And if they ask you of your affairs, then praise Allah and smile.

وإذا رأيت نملة في الطريق فلا تدسها وابتغ بذلك وجه الله عسى أن يرحمك كما رحمتها” . . وتذكر أنها تسبح لله فلا توقف هذا التسبيح بقتلك لها

If you see an ant on the path, then do not crush it, and seek the Face of Allah thereby, so that He will have mercy on you like you had mercy on it, and remember that it glorifies Allah, so do not halt this glorification by killing it.

وإذا مررت بعصفور يشرب من بركة ماء فلا تمر بجانبه لتخيفه ” وابتغ بذلك وجه الله عسى أن يؤمنك من الخوف يوم تبلغ القلوب الحناجر

And if you pass by a bird drinking from the blessing of water, then do not pass close to it in case you startle it, and seek the Face of Allah thereby, so that He grants you safety from fear on the Day when hearts shall reach the throat.

وإذا اعترضتك قطة في وسط الطريق فتجنب أن تصدمها وابتغ بذلك وجه الله عسى أن يقيك الله ميتة السوء

And if you come across a cat in the middle of the road, then avoid hitting it, and seek the Face of Allah thereby, so that He protects you from an evil death.

واذا هممت بإلقاء بقايا الطعام فاجعل نيتك أن تأكل منها الدواب وابتغ بذلك وجه الله عسى أن يرزقك الله من حيث لا تحتسب

And if you want to throw out food, then make it your intention that animals can eat from it, and seek the Face of Allah thereby, so that He provides you from whence you do not expect.

وتذكر :~ افعل الخير مهما استصغرته فلا تدرى أى حسنة تدخلك الجنه

Do good, no matter how small it seems to you, because you do not know which good deed will enter you into Paradise.

واذا نويت نشرهذا الكلام انوى بها خير لعل الله يفرج لك كربه من كرب الدنيا والاخره

And if you wish to spread this statement, then intend good, so that Allah may relieve you of a trial from the trials of this world and the Hereafter.”

— Shaykh Abu Ishaq al-Huwayni (hafidhahullah)

  1. SubhanAllah! Awesome wise words.

    JazakAllahu khayran for sharing :)

    • Indeed.

      Wa iyaak.

      Welcome to the blog and jazakiAllahu khayran for stopping by sister. May Allah swt make us a means of benefit for each other. Ameen.

      Wasalamu ‘alaykum warahmatullahi wabaraktuh.

  2. Assalaamu alaikum sis, jazaakiAllah khair for sharing. How are you? I would love to connect with you on facebook. I have been searching you on FB from past 1 year. I did get a sis named Urwatul Wuthqa.. Was so happy and excited. But it wasn’t you. :S .. So how do I connect sis?

    • Wa ‘alaykumusalam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Umm ‘Aaisha,

      What a wonderful treat to see your comment, mashaa’Allah.

      Alhamdolilah I’m well, just in need of du’aas and a lot of TLC. How are you and your kids doing? :)

      SubhanAllah, you’re very sweet and it’s a shame that you had to go through that. You could’ve emailed me earlier. It’s difficult to find me due to privacy settings so perhaps if you could email me yours inshaa’Allah?

      Inshaa’Allah if and when I become more regular again, I do wish to connect this blog to a fb page but oh that seems a distant reality for now!

      Will be waiting for your email.

      May Allah swt reward you for your kindness to me, ameen.

      -Umm Sulaym

Enlighten the Ummah
