A Heedless Heart ...
We address Takfiris as “If you raise your hand to kill me, I won’t raise mine to kill you, for I fear God” (Quran 5:28). We do not assume the Takfiris as the main enemies- the main enemy is the one who fuels and entices them.
Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei (via al-sabur)
Sometimes we just get irritated that our parents are calling us again and again then just remember when we were kids they also responded to us when we cry, when we ask for things etc. They never neglected us how can we.

Ibn Al-Qayyim [R] (via al-sabur)
The believers are stronger than iron because when iron is exposed to fire, it changes, but if the believers are killed and then revived and again killed, there would be no change in their mentalities.

Imam Jaffar Sadiq (a.s.)
