Inspirational Quotes

By: Shaykh Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh


Valued when Rare

“It is much better to be humble than proud! It is an accepted fact that whatever is rare holds great value. Take the example of diamonds or gold; because they are scarce and difficult to acquire, people value them with great desire to posses them.

Keeping this in mind, look at the condition of the people around you. You will find those who are proud and also those who are humble.


Unfortunately, during our time those that are proud and arrogant hugely outweigh those who are humble; humbleness has become a very scarce quality.


Thus people will be attracted to those who possess humility just as they are attracted to other rare items in this world.”


Prophetic Teachings

Jabir ibn Abdullah radhiyallāhu repots that I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam as saying: “Do not eat with your left hand, because Satan eats and drinks with his left hand.” (Muslim)


Abu Masud Al-Badri radhiyallāhu reports that The Prophet sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam said, “When someone spends on his family seeking his reward for it from Allah, it is counted as a charity from him”. (Bukhari & Muslim)


Jabir ibn Abdullah radhiyallāhu Messenger of Allah sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam said, “Beware of oppression, for oppression will be darkness on the Day of Resurrection; and beware of stinginess because it destroyed those who were before you. It incited them to shed their blood and deem unlawful as lawful.” (Muslim)

Cautiousness in the Matter of Halāl and Harām

Cautiousness in the Matter of Halāl and Harām

Shaykh Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh


In light of the recent meat contamination issue that has shaken Europe, I would like to touch upon the subject of halāl and harām. For a Muslim, life revolves around doing only what is permissible (halāl) and refraining from the impermissible (harām). This applies when deciding what food we consume and in every other aspect of our lives too.


In the Qur’ān Allāh ta-ala addresses the best of humanity, the Ambiyā alyhis salaam, saying, “O Messengers, eat from the good things and act righteously...” (23:51)
