ONE of the greatest assets of this Ummah in these times is an honest, practicing Muslim. People used to accept Islam because of the honest dealings of the Muslims, now they are still accepting Islam even with our current state. Imagine how many more would accept Islam if Muslims were truly living Islam.
There is no true sweetness in this life except in the love of Allah and his Messenger, in friendship and companionship based on the love of Allah, and the love of Islam. All other sweetnesses are artificial.
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said “There are three things, whoever attains them will find the sweetness of faith: when Allaah and His Messenger are more beloved to him than everything else; when he loves another person he loves him only for the sake of Allaah; and when he hates to return to Kufr as he would hate to be thrown into the fire.” - reported by al-Bukhaari
Is there anything more beautiful in this world than the heart of a righteous person who sincerely loves you?
