In The Name Of Allah The benficent The Most Mercifull
I want to start off by thanking every one who support my website, every one who post words of encouragement and benificial reminders, but brothers and sister please do not praise me in your statements, I want you all to know that I am an ordinary muslim striving to please and get closer to my Lord, I am a sinner like every one else. I am not perfect, I have my short comings like every one else and I ask Allah to aid me and make me better. The Prophet said evey child of Adam is a sinner but those who are best from amongst them are those who repent. Its uncomfortable when I read post from the youth saying that I am their role model and praising me when in fact im striving just like every one else to better my condition as a Muslim and to better my relationship with Allah, maybe you are better then me in the sight of Allah so please refrain from praising me, Our role models should be the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him and his Companions these are the ones who Allah praised in the Quran, Allah said hes pleased with them and they are please with Him.
In an authentic hadith narrated by Abu Bakr
A man praised another man in front of the Prophet . The Prophet said to him, “Woe to you, you have cut off your companion’s neck, you have cut off your companion’s neck,” repeating it several times and then added, “Whoever amongst you has to praise his brother should say, ‘I think that he is so and so, and Allah knows exactly the truth, and I do not confirm anybody’s good conduct before Allah, but I think him so and so,’ if he really knows what he says about him.” (Sahih Bukhari)
So please brothers and sisters no more praising me in your comments or the Admin from this site will not post your comments, as non of us is perfect and we should all be striving and struggling every day to get closer to Allah, I dont want the youth to have this idea as if I’m a perfect muslim because Allah alone truely knows my state and I ask Allah to forgive me for what the people dont know of me and make me better then what they say of me. May Allah forgive me and you all and I ask Allah to make me and you to be firm upon the Quran and the Sunnah of our beloved Messenger.
Your Brother in Islam
