An Incident of Intense Love

Maulana Rumi R.A narrated that Sultan Mahmood once summoned his sixty five ministers and ordered them to crush the most valuable gemstone in his treasury. They all declined on the grounds that they could not bring themselves to destroy the most valuable and celebrated piece of gemstone in the treasury. He then ordered Ayaaz, his closest vizier, to destroy the same gemstone. Ayaaz obeyed and soon the unique gemstone lay crushed into a thousand fragments. The ministers on seeing this expressed shock and anger at Ayaaz for breaking the most priceless gemstone.The Sultan also responded:"O Ayaaz, you are indeed audacious and ungrateful! Answer these ministers now and tell them why you broke the gemstone."Ayaaz turned to the ministers and said:Which is more important,The Royal decree or the gemstone?Maulana Rumi R.A from this incident is advising us that if our heart breaks in obeying the command of Allah (SWT) then let it break. But the order and command of Allah (SWT) should not break. These desires of lust that lurk in our hearts can be likened to the gemstones that appear very beautiful and pleasing to look at.Nevertheless, we should boldly crush them and uphold the commands of Allah(SWT) Who has ordered us to control our gazes.

Al-Fatihah ila al-marhum Shaykh Sa'id Ramadhan Al-Bouthi

"I spoke to him on the phone two weeks ago and the last thing he said to me was: "Only a few days of my life remain and I shall breathe the air of Paradise; do not forget your brother in your prayers.""

Alhabib Ali Al-Jifri.
Message from al-Habib Umar bin Hafidh (Hafidhullah) on the Death of Shaykh Muhammad Said Ramadan al-Buti


It is with great sadness that we announce the murder of the great scholar Shaykh Muhammad Said Ramadan al-Buti.

We ask Allah to raise him to the highest ranks of Jannah and bring forth those that will fill the gap in the Ummah that his loss has caused.

May Allah swt releive the suffering of the people of Syria and unite their hearts on the truth.


From his [qs] words of wisdom:

“In this place, we pray to God to make our hearts containers of the love of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him).” - 
Shaykh Dr. Muhammad Sa‘id Ramadan Al-Buti

 May Allah [swt] blessed his soul and gather him with his beloved. Al-Fatihah.

Ya Allah, each year you're taking back your beloved with You.. it hurts so much. Please don't leave us unguided ya rabb.

من أراد..

Those who wants a friend, then God is sufficient for him..
Those who wants to be sociable, then the Quran is sufficient for him..

Those who wants to be rich, then contentment is sufficient for him..
Those who are in need of advice, then (remembering of) Death is sufficient for him..
And those who are not satisfied(content) with this for, then may God guide him..

Confession of a broken slave: For the sake of Your love for me

My wings are broken

Yet You are there to mend it

I ran away from You for someone else

Yet You are always there watching over me and protecting me

I always tried to forget You

but You are always there calling my name,remembering me

I am so lost

Yet You know how far i am from You,You guided me

I kept rebelling against You

But Your reply was "I have always love you"

You kept calling me to run towards You

You kept sending me reminders that this is not the eternal life

Even though i don't listen to You and take You for granted,

Your kindness act is as though i am the only servant You have

Your love for me has flushed me away

Knowing that i can't even trust myself and my good deeds

For i know that Your love for me is true

And it's the only hope that i have now to meet You

You love me for who i am

Even for being an idiot in rebelling You

Even for not trusting You

Even though i'm just a dust among pearls

You kept watching over me and guiding me

Your love never fails me

So i am trusting you now ya rabb

I am a liar for saying "i love You"

I can't even trust my love for You

But for the sake of Your love and mercy for me,

Please don't deny me in front of You and Your beloved

Please let me see you at least once in the after life with all of Your beloved

After that, let it be.. do as You wish..

Throw me in the hell fire as long as it's Your will..

But please don't deny me from seeing Your Beauty

For the sake of Your true love for me

That's all what i need..

For You are the Most Loving and Merciful
