I urge all to please continue to make du’a for the safety of those aboard the Malaysia Flight MH370, as there still remains little knowledge of the whereabouts of the plane and the condition of those on board.
May Allaah safeguard the believers, may He ease our affairs, and may He have mercy upon us all, Allaahumm Ameen.
Let your bad thoughts about yourself and your many sins not prevent you from supplicating (making du’aa) to your Lord, for verily He answered the supplication of Iblees when he said:
قَالَ رَبِّ فَأَنْظِرْنِي إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ
[Iblis (Satan)] said: “O my Lord! Give me then respite till the Day they (the dead) will be resurrected.”
[فتح الباري جزء11 ص168]
Shaykh Saalih Al Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:
"Salafiyyah is to follow the companions and tabi’een upon their understanding in Aqeedah, and their manners."
[Reference: Manaahij p. 157]
“You will gain sweetness via three things: AS-SALAAH, AL-QUR’AAN and ADH-DHIKR. If you are able to do these things then glad tidings, but if you can’t then know that the door has been closed for you.”
- Hasan al-Basree [Rahimahullah]
[Hilyah al-Awliyaa (4/318)]
The Absurdity of Envy
It is reported that Muhammad b. Sîrîn – Allâh have mercy on him – said,
“I have never envied anyone over anything: if a person is going to be in the Fire, how could I envy him over some worldly matter when he is destined for the Fire?! And if he is going to Paradise, how could I be envious of a man of Paradise with whom Allâh tabâraka wa ta’âlâ is pleased?!” Muslim said, “We have never heard anything better than this from the words of Ibn Sîrîn.”

Black Cloud is an installation by Mexican artist Carlos Amorales involving tens of thousands of black paper months affixed to the walls of large interior spaces. The piece was first installed at Yvon Lambert in 2007 and then in a different configuration at an old baroque church in Spain that was converted to a multi-use space called Espacio AV in 2009.
