“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ‘I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was naked and you clothed me, I was homeless and you took me in.’ Hungry not only for bread - but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing - but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks - but homeless because of rejection.”— Mother Teresa
“Sometimes you succeed in achieving your goal and sometimes you fail. Suppose all your endeavors fail and if you have no faith in Allah, then you will be disappointed. But if you have faith in Allah, then you will not be sorry even if you fail.”—Ayatullah Mamkani
“I swear to Him in Whose hand is my life! The world shall not end unless the time would come when on passing by the graveyard, a person will throw himself onto the grave and say: ‘I wish I were in the place of the owner of this grave!’ This is while his problem is not debt but the sufferings and pressures of the day as well as tyranny and oppression.”—RasulAllah (saws)
“The worldly desires are like fuel.
Do not regard the desires in your heart as weak.
They are very useful.
The more you burn them, the more taqwa will brighten your heart.
The more your heart breaks, the more dear it is to its Maker.
Once you do it,
Allah [God] will grant you a sweetness that will exceed the sweetness of sin.”— Rumi (via afollower313)
“If Allah grants you 70 years of your life,You would spend: 24 Years sleeping, 14 Years working, 8 Years in amusement, 6 Years at the dinning table, 5 Years in transportation, 4 Years in conversation, 3 Years in education, 3 Years in reading, 3 Years watching television. If you prayed 5 times a day, you would be giving Allah 5 months of your life. Can’t we give 5 months out of 70 years? Think about it.”—(via zainabasadi)
“Men have the same form, but from the spiritual viewpoint, their reality depends on their morals and habits. Hence, the definition of `man’ may apply to some persons in respect of form, while in respect of their inner being, the term `animal’ may be true of them.”—Ayatullah Mutahhari (ra)
“When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I am in the heart of God.” And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.”—Gibran Khalil Gibran
