If a person sacrifices an animal willingly and expecting its reward from Allah, it will be a barrier for him against hellfire.
(Hadith - Jamiu's Saghir 8825)
The following was reported from Anas (r.a.): When the month of Rajab started, Hz. The Prophet (pbuh) would pray as follows: "O Allah! Make Rajab and Shaban blessed for us and let us reach Ramadan." (Hadith)
It is Allah Who sends the Winds, and they raise the Clouds: then does He spread them in the sky as He wills, and break them into fragments, until thou seest rain-drops issue from the midst thereof: then when He has made them reach such of his servants as He wills, behold they do rejoice! (Surah Ar-Room: 48)
The Prophet (pbuh) said: A person who hears my name to be mentioned should utter salawat.
Allah will show mercy ten times to a person who utters one salawat for me. (Hadith)
I had concluded no trade; the capital of life was all lost;
I came to the road to find the caravan had moved on, unaware.
Lamenting, I continued down the road, all alone, a stranger;
My eyes weeping, my heart in anguish, my mind bewildered, unaware.
(Niyazi al-Misri- The Flashes)
What makes this boundless universe rejoice is clearly Divine Mercy. And what illuminates these dark beings is self-evidently Divine Mercy. And what fosters and raises creatures struggling within these endless needs is self-evidently again Divine Mercy. (The Flashes)
