Shaykh Abdul Raof Al Attas


First thing we need to do is to clarify three things

Where we are (condition)
Where we want to be (heaven)
How to get there (Quran and Sunna)

The Prophet Yaqub (Upon him peace) sons Yusuf (Upon him peace) wasn’t with him for a long time, he went to visit his son. Yusuf (Upon him peace) asked, “ we shall meet in heaven why did your put so much effort to see me.” Yaqub (Upon him peace) replied, “I wanted to see If Islam was alive in you.”

We need to keep Islam alive and do whatever we do for the sake of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala.

Ibn Jawzi (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him) was asked by his students for advice on his deathbed he said “Sincerity, sincerity, sincerity.”

Yusuf (Upon him peace) was gave an interpretation of someone’s dream and then ask him to mention him front of the Pharaoh but Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala didn’t want him to get that and he remained in jail. He has to ask Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala. Only Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala will give you position

Two things to remember

Give thanks to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala
Then ask Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala

When Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala is with you don’t make up normal calculations

Ibrahim (Upon him peace) was in the fire (that the people of Nimrod set up for him) for 3 days and he said that was the best time.

Musa (Upon him peace) and his people came to the sea and he said that Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala was him.

Power is only Allah’s Subhanu wa Ta’ala

Islam is the world power

You can only look for something you have lost

If your windscreen is dirty you can go anywhere (you have to clean the screen!)

Medicine is bitter at first then sweet afterwards
