Hello everyone :) hope 2019 has been treating you well so far. And may Allah ease our affairs, to achieve our targets and become a better version of ourselves inshaallah.

Updating my blog here more frequently is not really one of my new year resolutions haha. but I guess it wouldnt harm anyone to add it in the list hehe. So heres to more blogging in 2019 inshaallah! :)

Just to share a hadith we've been learning in our usrah recenly, which is hadith 13 from Imam Nawawi.
On the authority of Abi Hamza Anas bin Malik, the servant of the messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) from the prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) who said: “None of you [truly] believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself
(Reported in Bukhari and Muslim)

The first time I read this hadith was probably during school. Second time maybe during early years of usrah. The thing about usrah is that the longer we follow the system, we continue to learn the basics of Islam, deeper and deeper each time (may Allah guide us always inshaallah). 

So anyway, about this hadith, learning it a few times, I couldnt help but to reflect on how we can apply it in our lives. The thing about us humans is that we cannot live in silos. We were created along with other human beings, we do not live in a world of our own. So whether we like it or not, interaction with other people is a must. So heres something to ponder upon;

If you like to be respected, you respect people
If you like to be treated well, you treat people well
If you like people to greet you with a smile, you greet people with a smile
If you like receiving gifts, you give gifts to other people
If you like people to call you by your name, you call people by their name
If you like to see the toilet clean for you, you leave it clean for other people (haha)

And the list goes on. As simple as that. Well of course the hadith goes deeper into topics of faith and believers, but I'd say this is a simple way of understanding it, and directly applying it in our lives - to everyone we meet, no matter what faith they hold on to. So if this is how we think when we meet strangers, imagine how we would treat our fellow believers? It creates an absolutely beautiful world.

May we become better each day inshaallah.
