In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
"The Messenger of Allaah (Peace be upon him) never denied to see me from the time I became Muslim, and whenever he saw me he would SMILE at me..."
Above is the testimony of a great Sahabi...Jarir bin Abdullaah al-Bajali (RA).
We all need moderate smile, well opprtuned and timed with an objective meaning to attract the love of Allaah and to strengthen our bond with other Muslims and to ease our emotional stress.
The Prophet (Pbuh) was described as a man of perpetual grief yet a permanent smile.
He was engrossed in the pains of the Ummah yet he never denied any man a smile.
We all are going through crisis in our lives whoever we are.....but this shouldn't take away our righteous smile.
Smile for the pleasure of Allaah and do not meet your brother with a smile while deep inside you hate him. Let your smile reflect the real love you have for others.
May Allaah save us from Riya (show off), may Allaah cleanse our hearts from hypocrisy, lies, deceits and kufr and may He make our hearts pure.
