A Few Reminders for the youth!

Remember this whenever you are aggressive or abrupt in speech towards elders due to being deceived by your youth

Allaah (The Most High) said:

اللَّهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ ضَعْفٍ ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنْ بَعْدِ ضَعْفٍ قُوَّةً ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنْ بَعْدِ قُوَّةٍ ضَعْفًا وَشَيْبَةً يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيمُ الْقَدِيرُ

”Allah is He Who created you in (a state of) weakness, then gave you strength after weakness, then after strength gave (you) weakness and grey hair. He creates what He wills. And it is He Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Powerful (i.e. Able to do all things).” [30:54]


Remember this whenever you are amazed with the little you know!

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَٱللَّهُ أَخۡرَجَكُم مِّنۢ بُطُونِ أُمَّهَـٰتِكُمۡ لَا تَعۡلَمُونَ شَيۡـًٔ۬ا وَجَعَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلسَّمۡعَ وَٱلۡأَبۡصَـٰرَ وَٱلۡأَفۡـِٔدَةَ‌ۙ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَشۡكُرُونَ

”And Allah has brought you out from the wombs of your mothers while you know nothing. And He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts that you might give thanks (to Allah).” [16:78]


Be Mindful of Self-Amazement, especially when your speech is received with acceptance

Imam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) stated in Al Fawaa-id (page 225) that Ibn Sad (rahimahullaah) stated in At Tabaqaat about Umar Ibn Abdul Azeez (rahimahullaah): Whenever he delivered a sermon and feared being amazed with himself, he would end it. And whenever he wrote a letter and feared amazement by way of it; he would tear it. And he would say: ”O Allaah! I seek refuge with you from the evil of my soul.”
