Discovering One's Helplessness

A hadith appears in the Sahih al-Bukhari, the Sunan Abi Dawud and the Musnad Imam Ahmad. In the Sahih al-Bukhari, this report reads: “God is amazed at those people who will enter Paradise in chains.” (hadith no. 3010). In another hadith, the words “driven in chains” appear.

Goodness in Every Situation

MaulanaWahiduddin Khan | Pakistan Christian Post | 27 September, 2016

According to a hadith in the Sahih Muslim, the Prophet of Islam is reported to have said: Strange are the ways of a believer, for there is good for him in every situation. And this is not true for anyone except for a believer. If he has an occasion of happiness, he is grateful, thus this happiness becomes good for him. If a difficulty befalls him, he keeps patience over it, and so the difficulty becomes good for him.
