Assalamualaykum warahamtullaahi wabarakatuh akhwaat, hope you are all in the best of health and Eemaan.
I just would like to take a few mins of your time to give some naseeha which of course goes to me first and foremost as same with any advice, we definitely start with ourselves.
Tayyib, I just wanted to advise you all who do match making to be careful as Wallahi this is a serious amanah (trust) and it’s not something to take lightly as this is peoples lives you are involved in. Please be careful who you recommend to sisters and brothers because I see from many of us a lot of negligence and this is not at all an indirect to anyone just something I felt needed addressing from experience. Please please please do not recommend someone to another unless you know for certain they are firm upon the Manhaj, meaning their aqeeda is sound, they are known to the ppl ( ie trustworthy ppl can vouch for them) and that they are known to be upon kheyr, meaning their character is sound likewise they don’t take from individuals whom are astray etc. This is important as we love for our brothers and sisters what we love for ourselves, would u yourself not want a firm salafi spouse who fears Allah? When you match make please treat it as if you was finding a spouse for your own self as it’s something serious. If you wish to aid your brothers and sisters in finding a spouse then this is nothing but kheyr and may Allah reward you but please do it with your whole heart in it and make sure you have your brother or sisters best interest. If you choose to get involved in such an issue with great amanah then please take it seriously and don’t just give people to anyone especially if you yourself wouldn’t take that person as a spouse for aqeeda reasons etc.
BarakAllahu Feekum akhwaat hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening 💕
A True Companion

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhali (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:
The one who is truly a companion is the one who aids his brother according to that which he (the one reminding) is able to do, even if it is with the statement of good. He aids him by way of giving (his brother) the (beneficial) advice (even if that advice goes) against him. When he forgets anything, he reminds him in order that he (i.e. the one reminding) establishes the rights of companionship. (This is) especially in that which is connected to the matters of the religion. He reminds him, advises him and does good to him. All of that is from fulfilling the rights of companionship. As for the one who doesn’t remind you when you forget, and he doesn’t aid you when you are in need of him, (then) indeed he has not established the rights of companionship. That’s because he doesn’t know its status and the status of that which comes as a result of fulfilling (rights of companionship) with the companions (that he have).

"Whenever I Saw A Man From The Ahlul Hadeeth, It Was As If I Saw The Prophet Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam Alive"
Imaam Ash Shafi’ee Rahimahullah
[Sharaf Ashaabul Hadeeth p.47]
If Only The Servant Was To Be Patient At The Door Of Allah
One of the Salaf, al Imām Fudayl bin Iyād (رضي الله عنه) said,
“I learned patience from a small boy. On my way to the Masjid one day, I came across a woman beating her son at home. As he was yelling and screaming, he managed to open the door and flee. So his mother locked the door on him. When I returned from the Masjid, I found the boy after having cried and wept sleeping at the door of his home longing for his mother. So his mother’s heart softened and she opened the door for him.” Upon witnessing that, Fudayl bin Iyād cried until his beard became wet with tears, and then he said “SubhānAllāh! If only the servant was to be patient at the door of Allāh, Allāh would surely open it!”
[Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (6/22)]
"The Knowledge Of Hadith Is Your Flesh And Blood And You Will Be Asked Concerning It On The Day Of Judgement, So Look Who You Are Taking It From"
Imam Maalik (d.179H) [ al-Muhaddith al-Fasil p.416] and [ al-Kifayah p.21 of al-Khatib]
My sister you also have a responsibility in the dawah. You have a role in the dawah. The people will look at you my sisters, they will look at your behaviour, manners and etiquette and you will either be a cause for them to be tuned to the direction of Islam… Or you may be the cause of turning them away from Islam

لم أرَ خليلاً يرفع قدر خليله گَـالقرآن فطوبى لمن اتخذَ
"I have never seen a companion/friend that raises the value/status of his friend like the Qur’aan, so glad tidings to whoever took Qur’aan as a companion".
It is narrated that the wife of Ibn Mas’ood (May Allaah be pleased with them both) requested from him a Jilbaab (an outer garment) and he said: “I fear that you will leave the Jilbaab of Allaah which He has covered you with.”
She said: “What is that?”
He said: “Your house.”
