“The people who will receive the greatest reward for prayer are those who walk the furthest distance to come and pray, then those who walk the next farthest.” ….
￼ All the new medical studies assure the importance of walking in treating many diseases such as those relating to blood pressure, heart problems, and diabetes. Walking everyday for half an hour helps improve and systematize how the heart works. It also assists in recovering the humans’ psyche, activates the muscles, and helps in getting rid of daily pressures, worries, and depression. One of prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) mercies for believers is his recommendation for walking to Mosques, and his promise of gaining a great reward. He said: “The people who will receive the greatest reward for prayer are those who walk the furthest distance to come and pray, then those who walk the next farthest.” Narrated by Muslim, 662.
If only we understood the wisdom behind all the acts of sunnah, SubhanAllah! We gain physically, mentally and spiritually by following the sunnah of our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him). -Anon-
why should our priority be the akhira and not the dunya? Because whether good or bad, our life will come to an end very soon, but the hereafter is eternal. After 50 years it won’t matter if you got accepted to Yale or not. What’s going to matter for eternity is our relationship with our Lord. We all want to go to Jannah (Paradise), but the even the thought of death makes us uncomfortable. Perhaps that is because deep inside we know that we are not serious enough about our permanent abode. Most of us get worried out of our wits when we can’t hand in an assignment on time, but we couldn’t care less about the call of the adhaan (the call to prayer) five times a day. We log onto Facebook every day, but we forget to open the book of Allah as often. Allah (swt) is not being unfair to us, we are being unfair to ourselves by mixing up our priorities.
Our Prophet ﷺ was never disquieted or agitated in a moment of tribulation. Even in the most difficult day of his life, he ended his prayer by telling Allah, “So long as You are not angry with me, I don’t care.” Agitation at the tribulations around us is inconsistent with the characteristic of believers.
a bedouin entered Madina, and went directly to the Masjid, so that he may get some money or gold from the Prophet (S.A.W.). When he arrived, he saw the Prophet (S.A.W.) sitting among his companions. He asked his need.
The Prophet (S.A.W.) gave his something. He was not content, and moreover he used harsh and inappropriate language against the Prophet (S.A.W.).
The companions became very angry, and were ready to hurt him. But the Prophet (S.A.W.) prevented them from haste. The Prophet (S.A.W.) took the Bedouin to his home, and gave him some more. The Bedouin saw that the residence of the Prophet (S.A.W.) wasn't like those of the heads of governments, and there is no luxury in his home.
The Bedouin became content with the share, and thanked the Prophet (S.A.W.). At this time, the Prophet (S.A.W.) asked him: "You said a harsh word yesterday, which caused anger in my companions. I fear that they will hurt you. Would you bewilling to show your appreciation in front of them, so that their anger be resolved, and they don't hurt you?" The Bedouin said: "Sure."
The next day, the Bedouin came to the Masjid. The Prophet (S.A.W.) addressed his companions: "This man says, he is content with his share, is it true?" The Bedouin said: "That is true." Then he repeated the appreciation that he had shared with Prophet (S.A.W.). The companions smiled.
The Prophet (S.A.W.) addressed the group: "The parable of me and these types of individuals is like that of the man whose camel was running away from him. With the [thought] they could help the owner, people were running after the camel. The camel was frightened and ran faster.
The owner called on the people, please leave my camel alone, I know better how to calm it. When the people stopped chasing the camel, the owner followed it calmly, with a fistful of grass. Then without the need for running, yelling, he showed the grass to it.madinah
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Ayyub that a man came to the Prophet (may peace be upon him) and said:
Direct me to a deed which draws me near to Paradise and takes me away from the Fire (of Hell). Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: You worship Allah and never associate anything with Him, establish prayer, and pay Zakat, and do good to your kin. When he turned his back, the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) remarked: If he adheres to what he has been ordered to do, he would enter Paradise.
Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “None will enter Paradise but will be shown the place he would have occupied in the Hellfire if he had rejected faith, so that he may be more thankful; and none will enter the Hellfire but will be shown the place he would have occupied in Paradise if he had faith, so that may be a cause of sorrow for him.”
Ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Paradise; a man may speak the truth until he is recorded with Allah as truthful; and verily, lying leads to wickedness and wickedness leads to the Hellfire; a man may tell lies until he is recorded with Allah as a liar.”
Abu Huraira reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, saying, “Verily, Allah created mercy; on the day He created it, He made it into one hundred parts; He kept with Him ninety-nine parts, and sent one part to all His creatures; had the disbeliever known the mercy which is in the hands of Allah, he would not lose hope of entering Paradise; and had the believer known the punishment which is with Allah, he would not consider himself safe from the Hellfire.”
"Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a cursed instead of us—for it is written, 'Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree'" (Gal 3:13)
What The Quran says ?! " ...They killed him not, Nor crucified him , but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. Nay, Allah raised him up Unto Himself; and Allah Is Exalted in Power, Wise" (4:158)
According to the Bible Jesus was crucified and killed by the Romans, and put to shame, humiliated and disgraced by the Jews, On the contrary and in truth according to Quran he was not humiliated or cursed but he was saved, raised up and honoured by God/Allah Almighty.

"And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah , and indeed to Him we will return."
