Lifelong bitterness vs. Lifelong sweetness

"The pleasure of sinning is short. Then, the consequences are very dreadful. The Muslim Scholars say, “A sin will breed another sin”. When you perpetrate a sin, what happens? The pleasure and delight precedes the sin and the bitterness comes after. Whereas the doing of the good deed, the bitterness/ hardship precedes and the pleasure comes after. When you want to commit a something shameful, something haram, a misdeed, you are thinking only of the pleasure, the fun you will have. The moment you finish such a horrible act, you feel bad about yourself, you hate yourself, you might cry. You feel your chest tighten like someone is squeezing your chest. That is the bitterness you will have until you enter the grave. The sweetness which you think of is limited and short, while the bitterness will remain the rest of your life. The opposite is true of good deeds. It is difficult at first, you feel bitterness only. Something against the nafs. But, for example, if you get up for fajr, despite the cold, difficulty in leaving the bed and making wudu, if you do so, what do you feel after the Salah? Sweetness, goodness, lightness. In Tarawih, with the long rakah, you feel tired, you feel hardship. But afterwords, you feel sweetness. The sweetness comes after doing the good deed. The opposite is true with sin, whereby the bitterness follows, and lasts forever."

In what he was saying here, he was giving wholesome Islamic advice as a Muslim, not Wahhabi. What he said there was the truth was it not? I seek to take the good where I find it and Allah Knows Best of my intentions.

Doesn't matter,

We hate anyone who hates and dishonours Sayyidina Rasulallah regardless if he's knowledgeable or not and regardless of what he's talking about.
What use are your deeds and knowledge if you dont have adab for the Leader of Prophets. It all goes to waste.

Salem al Amry isnt qualified as a scholar nor does he have authority to advise the ummah nor does he preach traditional Islam.

You wouldn't tolerate anyone destroying and burning your mother's grave and have the audacity to pray in her house, so how can we be so lenient when it comes to the Best of Creation.

You are an interesting character.

I understand that in quoting him here, a quote from a lecture series on Peace TV, he may not be of the 'traditional' mindset. But in what I quoted I found help when I needed it and that is what my blog is about.
As I already said, I take the good where I find it.

In return to hour constant guilt trip style, subhannallah. The ummah of rasoolullah is united under the Shahada, surely. That is what it comes down to both at the end if times, whether ones imaan is in tact and that is what it comes down to in the grave and in the hereafter. Let us not judge another, rather work on ourselves.

I acknowledge that you are trying to do good in advising me mashallah and if it is sincere, may Allah reward you for it, however I would prefer to work on myself and I found that the quote here presented offered me great opportunity for reflection. It was WHAT was being said that I found benefit from.

Imam Baihaqi reports a Hadith on the authority of Imam ibn Maysarah that the Holy Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam said: "whoever honours an innovator has helped in the destruction of Islam"

I understand you have found solace in what this guy has said but will you then listen to Dajjal if he gives you good advice too? What about Shaytaan? Surely they have good intentions (!)

I understand you are saying that it does not matter who is saying but rather what is being said. But you cannot merely pick at the knowledge you find applicable and relevant to you in Islam, it's not a buffet.

If you are saying you take from everywhere then you are saying that Rasulallah did not lay down one straight path.

Are u ahlussunnah wal jamaah? dont you find solace in what we say? Isnt our aqeedah satisfying ?

To feel hatred towards the Haters of Rasoolallah is a sign of eeman! Have u studied their atrocities?

1. Wahhabi massacre at taif [to forcefully make civilians accept Wahhabi creed]:
"they broke the gates and entered the fortress. They killed every man, woman and child, slaying even babies in their cradles. The streets turned into rivers of blood. The Wahhabis raided the houses and plundered everywhere, attacking outrageously and madly until sunset. 367 men with women and children(rahmat Allaihi alaihim ajmain) were put to the sword on the hill. They made animals trample on their bodies of the martyrs and left them to be eaten by beasts and birds of pray for 16 days. They plundered Muslims's houses and gathered all into a big heap in front of the gateway of the fortress and sent one fifth of the goods and money they collected to Sa'ud sharing the remainder amongst themselves. "

2. "The Wahhabi followers tore up the copies of the Qur'an, books of Tafsir, Hadith and other Islamic books they took from the libraries, Masjids and houses, threw them on to the ground. They made sandals from the gold-gilded leather covers of the Qur'an copies and other books and wore them on their filthy feet. There were ayaats and other sacred writings on those leather covers. The leaves of those valuable books thrown around were so numerous that there was no space to step on the streets of Ta'if."(Siraat ul Ahlus Sunnah)

3. "Sulaiman Khan I the 75th Khalifah of Islam and thhe 10th Ottoman sultan had restored the walls around the blessed city of Medina, the city had not suffered any assault of bandits for 274 years owing to its strong walls, and Muslims had lived inn comfort and peace in the city till early 1222 AH, when they had fell prey to the hands of Saud: SAUD had sent the looters he raised from villages to Medina after capturing al Makkah al Mukarrama and the villages around it. he appointed two brothers named Baday and Naadi as commanders of the looters. They plundered the Muslim villages on their way and killed many Muslims. Most villages around Medina were set on fire and demolished. The Muslims who were on the right path shown by the Ulemah of Ahl as Sunah were looted and put to the sword. There were so many villages burnt and Muslims killed that nobody can make an approximate estimate of the death toll. The villages around Madina accepted Wahhabite beliefs for fear of plunder, torture and death. "

4. Ibn Saud had the gates of Masjid Nabwi closed and delivered the following speech: It is forbidden in the religion of Wahhabism to stand in front of the Prophet's shrine with an attitude of respect to say Salat and Salam as your grandfathers used to do. You must not stand in front of the shine, but walk away and say only, 'As-Salaamu ala Muhammad' while passing by. According to the ijtihad of our Imam Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, this much respect is sufficient for the Prophet' ( ASTAGHFIRULLAH MAY ALLAH TA'LA SAVE US FROM FALSEHOOD)

5. It was Ibn Taymiyya who first invented the heresy of reform in the religion. Later on, this heresy was led to unbelief by the inexperienced and the enemies of Islam - Hadhrat Sayyid AbdulHakim Arwasi, great Muslim scholar. Salem al Amry calls Ibn Taymiya: SHEIKH AL ISLAM - astaghfirullah. It is this same Ibn Taymiyyah who also says that Allah Ta'la has body and directions, it is sinful to go to Medina with the intention of visiting Rasulallah's salallahu alaihi wa salam shrine and to also ask for Shafa'aat.

Furthermore, u have a Qasaid in the background of your blog yet you willingly take advice of people who refute it? How does that work? Since when is it acceptable to be respectful towards those who say: To pray Dua for yourselves near the grave of the Holy Prophet is Bid'aat.

1. You cannot take knowledge from everyone. Dont you feel uncomfortable to even listen to the Haters of Rasulallah?

2. To put up a post of 'Salem al Amry' means you are recommending him to people. They will listen to him and think that Allah swt has a direction and that it's shirk to say Ya Rasulallah salallahu alayhi wasalam.

3. When other Prophets alaihimusalaam were slandered, they answered the slanderers themselves. Slanderers of the Holy Prophet salallahu alaihi wasallam should not that Allahu ta'la answered the slanderers of His Beloved Himself. Thus, Allah ta'la defended His Beloved. Slanderers beware! Repent or be prepared for Allah's punishment for the slanderers, no doubt, will be extremely severe. (Siraat al Ahlus Sunnah)

I think the bigger problem is, and I quote, your own words "would you listen to the dajjal if he gives you good advice too? What about shaytaan? Surely they have good intentions!"

If you were making a mockery of me then please go and read some relevant quranic chapters on Muslim etiquette. If you were being serious then please re think replying any further on here, as some of your statements are treading on dodgy waters.

With that I leave you in peace. Go find a forum to argue on with those who like to argue on such issues. I do not.

Ok if you like Najdis who call mawlid bid'aa when you have Barzanji on your playlist and you dont mind tolerating nifaaq then remember the one who denies the kaafir becomes the kaafir himself..
so good luck in your quest for knowledge from those people about whom it is said in hadiths 'they are the worst of people you should kill them where you find them', i hope you find it comfortable standing next to the hypocrites and Shaykh al Najdi + ibn Taymiyya on the Day of Judgement
