The best of the best !

What kind of good deeds can we do during the limited time left?

Have you ever wondered to yourself what it actually means to be the best?

When we are told that ‘this is the best’ or ‘that was the greatest’ or ‘this will bring the most benefit’ etc, have you ever thought who on Earth gave such people/editors the authority to tell us that?

In an age when we have a plethora of ‘Top 10’ or ‘Top 100’ lists on everything from cars to films, from foods to places, one wonders where is that list that will really provide some benefit to us in this current short life and the next very long one.

Well, wait no more. HERE, from a choice of hundreds of narrations from our beloved Prophet Muhammad (sallall?hu ‘alayhi wa sallam) you can find 100 had?th, in no particular order of merit, detailing ways on exactly how to become the best, how to have the most excellent characteristics, what really will prove most beneficial for us to know, what really are the greatest things to think about and hope for and indeed, how to become the most beloved of people to our Exalted Creator, All?h jalla wa ‘al?.

No more subjectivity, no more empty statements; just the divine criteria of what really is the best as developed by the very best himself, Muhammad al-Mustapha (‘alayhis-sal?tu was-sal?m).

VMay peace be upon your soul, heart, mind, and body…Amen.
Ok, I looked up your comments on all different blogs..
Went to http://blogsearch.google.com/ which is specifically concerned about blogs…
Typed “Mohamed A. Hassan”, and then found a lot of things said by you on different blogs, and read them all.
And then goolged “Mohamed” only, and read things and they didn’t seem to be all yours. (by instinct!)
And I loved most your advice to Marie on Daniel’s blog (BLURRED CLARITY)
Anyhow, you asked me what I found, well,
I found a person with an awake conscience who “does” care about the world we live in, and wants to see it as a better one.
I found a person who tried with all his heart to fix his sink.
I found a person who seriously, truly knows where he comes from… which is sooooooooo uncommon in this world I live in.
I found a person who …
YOU KNOW WHAT, I REALLY WANNA THANK YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE, AND ASK ALLAH TO MAKE ALL THAT YOU WANT FOR HIS CAUSE COME TRUE…AMEN.

With respect,
