[E-book] Silent Moments: The Description of Before & After Death Aspects


The book Silent Moments deals with the science of death, which is the research work of brother Abdul Malik Al-Qasim, a renowned and a pious scholar of the Quran and the Sunnah as well as the Arabic Language. Nowadays, these worthy books are hardly available and due to their being in large volumes, people have no time to get benefit from them. About death and after death, there is a sound creed in Islam and it has been mentioned and discussed many times in the Quran and the Sunnah. In View of its importance, Darussalam has rendered (Silent Moments) into the English language with the prior permission from the author.

 

Abu Hazim said: “Trade of the Hereafter is not sought after, and whatever is left of it, is about to finish! As a result, no part of it, minor or major, will remain.” Whenever the light went out in the house of Hisham bin Abu Abdullah, he would turn around in his bed until his wife brought a light for him. So she asked him why he felt anxious when the light went off and he replied, “When the light goes off, I remember the darkness of the grave.”

 

This is why AI-Mu’tasim used to say when he was dying, “If I knew that my life would be this short, I would not have committed what I committed.”

 

Also, Caliph AI-Muntasir said at the time of death, when he was wished well, “All will happen except being well! Life has gone away and the Hereafter has come.”

 

Ibn Mas’ud ~ once said: “The believer will not attain comfort until he meets ALLAH”

 

Life is Just like a dream that passes as fast as clouds. It is a mere hour of time that soon fades away. It is a journey that has already started and will soon come to an abrupt end.

[E-book] Az-Zuhd by Ibnul Qayyim Al-Jawzeeyah


“Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children, as the likeness of vegetation after rain, thereof the growth is pleasing to the tiller; afterwards it dries up and you see it turning yellow; then it becomes straw. But in the Hereafter (there is) a severe torment (for the disbelievers-evil doers,) and (there is) Forgiveness from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure (for the believers good doers) whereas the life of this world is only a deceiving enjoyment.”

{Suratul Hadeed: 20}

 

Many have defined the meaning of Zuhd. I heard Ibn Taymiyyah say about Zuhd and (Wara’a):

‘Zuhd is to leave alone those things which will not benefit you in the next life.’ ‘And Wara’a (piety) is to leave the things you fear might harm you in the next life.’

And this so far, has been (one of) the best explanations, of the meaning of Zuhd and Wara’a.

 

Sufiyaan al-Thauri said about Zuhd:

‘Zuhd is to have limited amount of expectations (very few hopes); It does ‘not’ mean eating poor or inadequate foods as many think, or wearing a cheap gown or cloak.’

Az-Zuhd
