A Heedless Heart ...
If you are really sincere in your advice, you address it in privacy. If it’s private, it’s easier to achieve the truth. But when you are in a large group, the ego takes over. And then there’s the chance that it’s not sincere, it’s for achieving the upper hand.
Shaykh Ḥamza Yūsuf translating Imām al-Ghazālī’s Kitāb al-‘Ilm.
I believe in good timing. I believe in God’s timing.
(via ahlulbayt-saviour)
As far as companionship [with your parents] is concerned, keep their company and be gentle with them. Endure their hardship just as they endured yours when you were young, and do not withhold from them that which Allah has made plentiful for you in the way of food and clothes. Do not turn your face away from them nor raise your voice above theirs. To respect them is part of Allah’s command; speak to them in the best possible way and be kind to them. Allah will not let the reward of those who do good go to waste.
Imam al-Sadiq (as), Lantern of the Path   (via ahlulbayt-saviour)
Anyone who shows the way to something good has the same reward as the person who does it.
Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) [Muslim]  (via ahlulbayt-saviour)
'Blessed is he whose knowledge and practice, love and hate, acceptance and refusal, speech and silence, and words and actions are sincerely for the sake of Allah.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]

Tuhaf al-‘Uqul, p. 100

The look of a child towards his parents out of love for them is an act of worship.

A step toward your own heart
is a step toward the Beloved.
Rumi
عاشق آن است که یا دیده به گل وا نکند
یا به غیر از گل روی تو تماشا نکند
حجت الاسلام جوادی (via chador-lover)
I seek refuge in You from a soul which is never content, a stomach which is not satisfied and a heart which has no humility.
Imam Sajjad (a.s.)

Do not delay asking for forgiveness. Every night before you sleep, ask for forgiveness from Allah. Because the second you close your eyes, your soul departs your body. But its return is never guaranteed.

Inform My servants that I am the Forgiving, the Merciful
Quran 15:49 (via yaseeneducation)
The greatest reward comes with the greatest affliction
Imam Sadiq (a), al-Kafi 2/109 h.2. (via yaseeneducation)
Sometimes Allah takes everything away from a person to help him find his Lord.
If one gets up to pray at night and his eyes are overtaken by sleep while in sujood, Allaah says to His angels: Look, my angels! This is My slave! His soul is with Me and his body is before me. Record his qiyaam for him and count his sleep as a Sadaqah from Me on him.
