am I?


Imam al ghazali mentions in his Ihya' a tradition from Abdullah ibn Mas'ud r.a, an honorable companion, a devoted lover of the Quran and great expert in the sciences of the Quran, in which he said : 

"Hafiz of the Quran should be recognized by how he uses his night, while others sleep; by how he spends his day while other people are heedless,

By his worries while others are worry free, by his weeping while others rejoice and smile; by his silence while others are talkative and by his humbleness while others are arrogant.

A hafiz should be submissive and and gentle, and should not be impolite, a quarrelsome person and a ruffian."


it's time to do muhasabah.
