❝If you want to test someone’s character, give him respect. If he has good character, he will respect you more, if he has bad character, he will think he is the best of all.❞
❝If you wish to mourn and lament over anyone, do so upon Hussain bin Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s) for he was beheaded like a lamb. Eighteen persons from among his family, who were unparalleled in the earth, were also killed alongwith him. The heavens and the earth lamented the death of Husain. Four thousand Angels descended from the heavens to aid him, but when they reached there they saw that he had already been martyred. Thus, now they all remain near his blessed grave with disheveled hair covered with dust until the rising of the Qaem (Imam al Mahdi). Then they will all aid him and their slogan will be: Vengeance for the blood of Husain.❞

When Khadija (s.a.) cried at the death of their son, the Prophet (pbuh) said: Don’t you want to see him standing at the gate of heaven, waiting to take your hand when he sees you, and taking you to your spot in Heaven?” She replied positively.
Then the Prophet (pbuh) said: God is more nobler and honourable than to punish someone if He has taken away a loved one, and he/she has been patient praising God.

InshaAllah you all enjoy this blessed day. Eid Mubarak :)
