Imaan Renewal!

This video describes the first time the inhabitants of Jannah (Paradise) will meet Allah (swt) and see His Glorious Face. You can read the complete description of Jannah written by Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullah) from his book: Haadi al-Arwaah ilaa Bilaad il-Afraah, pg. 193

It's heart-moving, this video. The text is adapted from a Hadith - which describes, that a portion of the Jannah dwellers, will finally see Allah SWT... with their own eyes.

Yes, for real. No part of our imagination can capture that particular idea - the idea of how our Lord, appears - or looks.

May Allah Grant us that honor, Ameeen.

A very useful saying I came across today:

Imam Dhahabi (rh) said: "Whosoever seeks knowledge for actions,then his knowledge makes him humble & fearful,& causes him to weep at (the deficiencies in) himself. But whosoever seeks knowledge for the sake of merely teaching, giving verdicts,in order to brag,or to show-off; becomes foolish,arrogant & looks down in contempt at the people,& is destroyed by pride,& the people hate him.." [Siyar A'laamun-Nubulaa-18/192]
