is this an authentic hadith?

 

you just don't know these days.

The hadeeth is authenticated by Imam Bukhari.

 

the hadeeth simply means if a muslim is being oppressed you should help him and protect him in anyway you can, Also if a muslim is the oppressor you should hold his hand and tell him to stop.

1. People are scoundrels expect the worst.

 

2. Never invest in anything you can't operate or understand.

 

3. Take care of your body and it will be good to you.

 

4. Have fun in your youth when life is simple, don't rush to grow up.

 

5. Friends are enemies you haven't discovered yet.

 

6. The sweeter and nicer your lover talks, the nastier the bite when things sour.

 

8. It is easier to be a critic than to provide solutions.

 

9. Don't have high expectations and you will not be disappointed.

 

10. Spend time with your folks and grandfolks because you never know if they may be around in the future.

A big lesson I am currently learning ( I believe it is this, it might be something else entity)!

 

 

Sabr, patience, Sabr and more Sabr.

 

With every stage in your life their is a reason for it, Allah will reveal it you just have to be patient enough to endure it first.

Some people only know you when they need something, the rest of the times you are a stranger to them.And funnily enough when you need something, you are still a stranger to them.

STFU and take it like a real Somali....is what I learnt.

 

I have had 1000x more opportunities than both my parents combined and I've hardly seen them complain as life threw stuff at them, but I complain 1,000,000x more than them in my bubbly middle-class existence....

 

Perhaps true for many of us on SOL who are really privileged in many ways...
