Do not wish to be like anyone, Except…Islam
Narrated `Abdullah: Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said,
“Do not wish to be like anyone, except in two cases:
(1) A man whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it righteously.
(2) A man whom Allah has given wisdom (knowledge of the Qur’an and the Hadith) and he acts according to it and teaches it to others.”
(Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, Book 93, Hadith 5)
Narrated Abu Musa:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
“The Mamluk (slave) who worships his Lord in a perfect manner, and is dutiful, sincere and obedient to his Saiyid (master), will get a double reward.”
(Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 3, Book 49, Hadith 35)
Don’t cry for your loss. ALLAH won’t take anything from a believer without replacing it with something better.
ALLAH said in the Qur’aan,
“Perhaps you may dislike something which is good for you, and like something which is bad for you. ALLAH knows and you do not.” (2:216)
