Expensive possession

An anxious man once approached Hazrat Sahl bin 'Abdullah (R.A). When he asked why he was so distressed, he replied that the previous night, a thief entered his house and stole his possessions.

Hazrat Sahl (R.A) replied, 'Rather than being depressed, you should be thankful to Allah Almighty that your possessions have been stolen, and not your Imaan. If the devil was to loot your heart and steal your Imaan, then what would you do?'


This story teaches us that Faith is our most expensive and prized possession. Naturally, we should care for our material possessions but we should be equally worried about preserving our Imaan. We care less for our Faith, but are willing to sacrifice endlessly to protect our belongings. We show remorse and regret on losing a small amount of money, but seldom show the same feelings when we miss or delay our Salah. May Allah (S.W.T) infuse His fear into our hearts and give us the ability to perform good actions. Ameen.

The superiority of the Kalima Shareef

Hazrat Usman e Ghanni (R.A) once asked Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A) :'We stayed in the company of the beloved Prophet (S.A.W) for a long period, but we never asked him what the key to Paradise and the lock to Hell was?'

Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A) replied, 'I asked the Prophet (S.A.W) this very question. He (S.A.W) replied that the key to Paradise and the lock to Hell is La ilaaha illallahu Muhammadur Rasulullah.'


The Kalima Shareef is the key to enter Islam. These comprehensive words contain the entire teachings of Islam. If we understand the Kalima Shareef, act upon its requirements and recite it often, then it will undoubtedly lead us to Paradise. The Prophet (S.A.W) remarked that continuously reciting the Kalima Shareef erodes the filth of the heart and purifies it.
