“..and you are the butter.”

22 Mar


“O you who were fed the milk of piety and changed by the will of Allaah, all things are like a tree while you are the fruit; a picture and you are the meaning; a shell and you are the pearl, and buttermilk and you are the butter.”


– Taken from al-Fawaa’idh.

    I’m more like I can’t believe it’s not butter! If you know what I mean. 😉

    Traveller, I dont think its specifically talking about the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam. I think it includes all those who strive for the sake of Allaah, for his deen and those who do righteous deeds.. wAllaahu a`lam.

    Al-Furqaan, the trials have been delayed.. so please make du`aa for all of them; the ones here and those in the UK. They’re very much in need of it.
    Jazaakumullaah khayr.

    Interesting quote.

    may Allaah allow His sakeenah to descend upon all the prisoners, wherever they may be, and grant the families sabr.
