There is no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error…/… Dinde zorlama yoktur. Çünkü doğruluk sapıklıktan iyice ayrılmıştır.

The foundation stone of the whole scheme is service. Service to the people, a service that will lighten, brighten, and make more profitable the lives of the majority who do the necessary work of the world.

True freedom is like an evergreen tree, which is free as well as restrained. While every tree is subjected to the same restrictions by nature, these restrictions are imposed to optimize the growth and development of a tree’s latent potential.

Freedom is a natural right of man, a spiritual privilege, a moral prerogative, and, above all, a religious duty. The Islamic concept of freedom is an article of faith, a solemn command from the Supreme Creator. It is built on the following fundamental principles. First, man’s conscience is subject to Allah only, to Whom every man is directly responsible. Secondly, every human being is personally responsible for his deeds and he alone is entitled to reap the fruits of his work. Thirdly, Allah has delegated to man the responsibility to decide for himself. Fourthly, man is sufficiently provided with spiritual guidance and endowed with rational qualities that enable him to make responsible, sound choices. Within the framework of this Islamic concept of freedom, there is no room for religious persecutions, class conflict, or racial prejudice. The individual’s right of freedom is as sacred as his right of Life; freedom is the equivalent of Life itself.

Anyone of you who sees wrong, let him undo it with his hand; and if he cannot, then let him speak against it with his tongue, and if he cannot do this either, then (let him abhor it) with his heart, and this is the least of faith.

The best of people is one from whom good accrues to humanity.

Deal gently with the people, and be not harsh; cheer them and condemn them not.”
(Prophet Muhummad- Peace be upon him)

There is no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error. Whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has grasped the strongest bond that never breaks. Allahs knows all, and hears all things. (Qur’an, 2:256)

The Truth is from your Lord. Let him who wills, believe, and let him who wills, disbelieve. (Qur’an, 18:29)


Life is not a bed of roses . . . Hayat güllük gülistanlık değildir . . .

What a beautiful pray: .❝Our Lord, pour upon us patience and plant firmly our feet.❞ Patient to Friends, Enemies, Blessing, Tribulation, Exam.

Ne güzel bir duadır: .❝Rabbimiz üzerimize sabır yağdır, ayaklarımızı (düşman karşısında) sabit kıl.❞ Dosta, Düşmana, Nimete, Musibete, İmtihana Sabır…

We are always in an exam. About the people we love and we don’t love. About our friends, enemies. Oh Allah! Don’t let us to be loser!

Her an imtihandayız. Sevdiklerimizle, sevmediklerimizle. Dostlarımızla, düşmanlarımızla. Ey Allah’ım! Kaybedenlerden eyleme!

Life is not a bed of roses. Sometimes we have to walk on thorns. In times of prosperity make Shukr. In times of adversity make Sabr.

Hayat güllük gülistanlık değildir. Bazen diken üzerinde yürümek zorundayız. Bolluk zamanlarında Şükret. Zorluk zamanlarında sabret.

Do not grieve, there is another life to come…!! Üzülme, bizi bekleyen yeni bir hayat var … !!

The day will come when Allah will gather together the first of the creation and the last of it. The knowledge of this occurrence alone should reassure you of Allah’s justice. So whoever’s money is usurped here shall find it there; whoever is oppressed here shall find justice carried out there; and whoever oppresses here shall find his punishment there.

Immanuel Kant, the German philosopher, said,

“The drama of this life is not complete; there must be a second scene to it, for we see the tyrant and his victims without seeing justice being executed. We see the conqueror and the subjugated, without the latter finding any revenge. Therefore there must be another world, where justice will be carried out.”

Ash-Shaykh `Ali at-Tantawi, commenting on this, said:

“This statement suggests a confession from this foreigner (to Islam); of the existence of a Hereafter where judgment will take place.”

An Arab poet said:

“If the minister and his delegates rule despotically, and the judge on earth is unjust in his judgments, then woe, followed by woe after woe

Upon the judge of the earth from the judge who is above.

“(This Day shall every person be recompensed for what he earned. No injustice [shall he done to anybody]. Truly, Allah is Swift in reckoning. (Qur ‘an 40: 17)

Robert Louis Stevenson said:

“Every person is capable of performing his daily tasks, no matter how difficult they are, and every person is capable of living happily during his day until the sun sets: and this is the meaning of life.”

“Robert Louis Stevenson şöyle dedi ; Ne kadar meşakkatli olursa olsun her insan işini bir gün içinde yapabilir. Güneş batıncaya kadar her insan mutluluk içinde yaşayabilir. İşte hayatın anlamı budur.”

Stephen Leacock said:

“The young child says: when I will become a bigger boy. The boy says: when I become a teenager, and when that time comes, he says: when I will marry. What about after marriage? And what comes after all of these stages? One’s thoughts constantly follow the tune of the following: when I will be able to retire. But when one actually reaches old age and looks back, he is scorched by a cold wind. He lost out on his whole life that dwindled away without ever living inside of it. And thus we learn, only when it is too late, that life is to be lived in every breathing minute and hour.”

Such is the state of those who put off repenting from their sins. One of our pious predecessors said:

“I warn you of delaying and saying that I will do it later, for this is a phrase that prevents one from doing good and causes one to fall behind in deeds of righteousness.”

Leave them to eat and enjoy, and let them be preoccupied with [false] hope. They will come to know! (Qur’an 15: 3)

The French philosopher, Montaigne, said:

“My life was filled with bad luck that never showed mercy.”

I assert that despite their knowledge and intelligence, many famous thinkers knew nothing of the wisdom behind their own creation. They were not guided by the teachings that Allah sent through His Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh).

And he for whom Allah has not appointed light, for him there is no light. (Qur’an 24: 40)

Verily, we showed him the way, whether he be grateful or ungrateful. (Qur’an 76: 3)

Dante said:

“Consider that this day will not occur again.”
Better and more beautiful and complete is the hadith:
“Pray as if it is your farewell prayer.”

Dante şöyle dedi:

“Bugünün bir daha doğmayacağını düşün.”

Daha iyi ve daha güzel ve tamamlayan bir Hadis,
“Namazına kalktığın vakit (dünyaya) veda edenin (namazı gibi) namaz kıl.”

Whoever puts it into his mind that today is his last day, will make a fresh repentance, will do good deeds, and will strive to be obedient to his Lord, the Almighty and His Messenger (bpuh).

Grieve not and ask yourself the following questions

1. Do I put off living in the present because of fears and apprehensions about the future or because of hopes of the magical garden beyond the horizon?

2. Do I embitter my present life by mulling over events that occurred in the past?

3. Do I wake up in the morning with an intention of spending my day usefully?

4. Do I find that I am benefiting from my life when I try to concentrate on a present situation or task?

5. When will I begin to live in the present moment, without worrying too much about the past and future? Next week? Tomorrow? Or today?

Excerpt from the book “Don’t Be Sad , Aaidh ibn Abdullah al-Qarni

A story of wise old man and a cat & Yaşlı bilge bir adam ve bir kedinin hikayesi…

Posted in DÜŞÜNDÜM, HAYAT, The articles in English & stories, İSTANBUL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/09/2017 by Semra Polat

“A wise old man was sitting at the river bank when he saw a cat that had fallen into the water, flailing around, trying to save itself from drowning.

The man decided to save the cat. He stretched his hand out but was scratched by the cat. He pulled his hand back in pain. However, a minute later he stretched his hand out again to save the cat, but it scratched him again, and again he pulled his hand back in pain.

Another minute later he was yet again trying for the third time!!

A man, who was nearby watching what was happening, yelled out:

“O wise man, you have not learned your lesson the first time, nor the second time, and now you are trying to save the cat a third time?”

The wise man paid no heed to that man’s scolding, and kept on trying until he managed to save the cat.

He then walked over to the man, and patted his shoulder saying:

“My son…it is in the cat’s nature to scratch, and it is in my nature to love and have sympathy. Why do you want me to let the cat’s nature overcome mine !?!!”

My son: Treat people according to your nature, not according to theirs, no matter what they are like and no matter how numerous are their actions that harm you and cause you hurt sometimes.

And do not pay heed to all the voices that loudly call out to you to leave behind your good qualities merely because the other party is not deserving of your noble actions.

When you live to give happiness to others, Allaah Subhānahu wa Ta’ālā will send you those who will live to give happiness to you:

“Is the reward for ihsan (good) [anything] but ihsan (good)?” [Ar-Rahman, 55:60]

“Yaşlı bilge bir adam nehir kenarında oturuyordu. Suya düşmüş bir kedi gördü. Kedi kendini boğulmaktan kurtarmak için sağa sola çırpınıyordu.

Adam kediyi kurtarmaya karar verdi. Elini uzattı ama kedi tarafından tırmalanmıştı. Acı içinde elini çekti. Fakat bir dakika sonra kediyi kurtarmak için yine elini uzattı. Ama kedi yine onu tırmaladı. Ve adam tekrar elini acı içinde geri çekti.

Başka bir dakika sonra, üçüncüye tekrar deniyordu.

Yakınlarda izleyen bir adam seslendi:

“Ey bilge adam! Birincisinde dersini öğrenmedin. İkincisinde de öğrenmedin. Ve şimdi kediyi üçüncüye kurtarmaya mi çalışıyorsun?”

Bilge Adam diğer adama hiç aldırış etmeden kediyi kurtarmaya başarana kadar devam etti.

Sonrasında adamın yanına gelip omzuna hafifçe vurup dedi ki:

“Oğlum tırmalamak kedinin doğasında var. Sevmek ve empati duymak ise benim doğamda var. Neden benden kedinin doğasının benimkine üstün gelmesine izin vermemi istiyorsun?

Oğlum, insanlara kendi doğana göre davran, onlarınkine göre değil. Onlar nasıl olurlarsa olsunlar. Sana zarar veren ve kalbinin kırılmasına sebep olan sayısız davranışları olsa bile!

Karşı taraf güzel davranışlarını hak etmiyor diye, iyi özelliklerini arkanda bırakman için sana yüksek sesle seslenen bütün o seslere aldırış etme.

Başka bir insanın mutluluğuna sebep olduğun hiçbir an icin asla pişmanlık duyma, o kişi bunu hak etmese bile!

İyiliği, iyilikle ödüllendirecek bir Rabb’in olduğu gerçeği sana yeterli olsun.”

“İyiliğin karşılığı yalnız iyilik değil midir?” [Rahman Suresi, 55:60]

Are you happy? Mutlu musun? ….All Praise and Thanks be to Allah & Al Hamdulillah.

Broken hearts always get better with patience and Dua. & Kırık kalpler her zaman sabır ve Dua ile düzelir.

Broken hearts are invisible. Only Allah can see that pain you hide, the tears that are ruthlessly forced back. Have faith. After pain comes ease.

“For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.” (Surah Ash-Sharh 94/5)

Kırık kalpler görünmez. Yalnızca Allah, sakladığınız acıyı ve acımasızca geri bastırdığınız gözyaşlarınızı görür. İnançlı ol. Acıdan sonra kolaylık gelir.

“Her zorluğun yanında bir kolaylık vardır.” (İnşirah, 94/5)

And the disbelievers – they are the wrongdoers… Ve kâfirler, onlar zâlimlerdir….Surah Al-Baqarah [2:254]

I think Islam hates us, but a few hundred billion dollars and some bling might make me change my mind.

Bence, İslam bizden nefret ediyor. Ancak birkaç yüz milyar dolar ve biraz koltuklarımın kabartılması fikrimi değiştirebilir.
