When to Speak

An alim said that whenever the nafs tell me to speak that I know that is when I should keep quiet. Whenever the nafs tell me to remain quiet, I know that is when I should speak.

A Beautiful Garden

The heart should be thought of as a garden. To make a beautiful garden, one of the first thing you have to do is clean out the garden – remove all the nettles, brambles, weeds, clean and prepare the soil. You have to then maintain the weeding to prevent them from overgrowing. To cultivate a good heart and grow the love of Allah, His Rasul ﷺ and love of the akhirah, purity, pleasantness then one of the first things we must do is remove the harmful elements otherwise they will overwhelm the heart.

Stopping at a Critical Time

We focus a lot on children’s tarbiyah at a young age but then stop at a critical time during their teenage years. We never focus on the tarbiyah of adults. Rasul ﷺ did tarbiyah on the sahabah. Who will do our tarbiyah? We are in need of nurturing and cultivation. We are need of someone to help us to develop and flourish. We need to focus on our ruh and spirit. This requires the right environment and company in order to develop.

Mark of a Believer

‘Sincerity is a mark of a believer.’ (Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq)


Value of the Teacher

‘Those who don’t have a teacher appreciate the value of a teacher.’ (Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq)


Heart to Heart

Knowledge in Islām is not just from mouth to ear or from books, but knowledge in Islām is predominantly from heart to heart.’ (Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq)


A Mechanical Performance

A routine, mechanical performance of salah in reality is not sufficient although it may fulfil the obligation. We also need to consider social etiquettes, and fulfilling the rights of the creation as well as the creator. We can get obsessed with halal and haram but we forget about the essence of worship, the core spirituality.
