The bearer of Qur`ān must be recognized by his nights when people are sleeping. And by his days when people are eating, by his sadness when people are joyous, by his tears when people are laughing, by his silence when people are arguing, and by his humbleness when people are easily offended.
Are you content that your life span comes to an end, while your religion is deficient and your property is abundant?
Imam as-Sajjad (a)
When Allah wants good for one of His servants, He causes him to abstain from this world’s pleasures, and causes him to gain thorough knowledge about religion, and gives him insight into the flaws of the life of this world. Verily, if the heart is refined and purified, the earth becomes too narrow for it, such that it has no choice but to rise above it.
Imam as-Sadiq (a)
Don’t get attached to moments. Good or bad, they all pass.
Al-Haleem (the Forbearing One). He is the One Who showers His creation with blessings both apparent and hidden, in spite of their sins and many mistakes. He is Forbearing and does not punish sinners straight away for their sins. He rebukes them so that they will repent, and gives them time to turn to Him in repentance.
Whosoever chooses to follow guidance, follows it for his own good; whosoever goes astray, goes astray to his own loss.’
(al-Isra’ 17: 15)
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “He who purifies (performs Wudu’) himself in his house and then walks to one of the houses of Allah (mosque) for performing an obligatory Salat, one step of his will wipe out his sins and another step will elevate his rank (in Jannah).”
A handsome guy and a pretty girl will make a beautiful wedding; but a faithful man and a pious woman will make a beautiful marriage
Do not become so overwhelmed by your wrong action, that it stops you thinking well of Allah. Whoever has gnosis [intuitive knowledge] of his Lord, finds that his wrong action is insignificant beside His Generosity.
