If you were to think about the closeness of death and its imminent arrival, the sweetness of life and its comfort would become bitter for you.
Amirul Mo’minin Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (ع) Ghurar al-Hikam p. 36
Salaam Alaykum :) I wanted to anonymously tell you just how amazing you are. I rarely get to see you, but anytime I do, just being in your presence makes me so, so happy. I envy your strength, your taqwa, your sabr, and your trust in Allah (SWT). You are a huge inspiration for me, and I hope that I'll be fortunate enough to spend more time with you and have you rub off on me inshaAllah. Take care, may Allah (SWT) be with you always <3 <3
Wa Alaikumo Salaam, thanks for such a sweet message that I’m so undeserving of … don’t envy anything, you haven’t seen my dark side ;) I don’t know who you are but thank you for the sweet message and I hope I can hang out with you once this board exam of mine is over! :) <3
Placing one’s trust in Allah is the means of deliverance from every evil.
How could I be negligent of my innermost being when my Lord perceives it?
I do not feel tired anymore. I have gotten used to sleeplessness. When facing grief and sorrow, I feel as if I am a mountain - I’m not upset by torment and pain. I sleep wherever that may be. I get up whenever it is needed. I eat whatever is available.
Do you feel it when the Angel of Death enters a house, or do you see him when he takes out life of anyone? How does he take out the life of an embryo in the womb of his mother? Does he reach it through any part of her body or the spirit responded to his call with the permission of Allah? Or does he stay with him in the mother’s interior? How can he who is unable to describe a creature like this, describe Allah?
Sermon 112, Nahjul Balagha
why didn't you answer my Q ?
Sorry anonymous, I have a few questions I have to reply to and because my schedule is really tight I barely come on tumblr only during breaks just to read a few nice quotes and leave. Will insha’allah get to it soon!
Blowing out someone else’s candle won’t make yours shine brighter
Good intentions are the most beautiful of secrets.
Imam Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib (a.s)
A white flower grows in the quietness.
Let your tongue become that flower.
Any woman who makes her husband suffer with her tongue will be the first to enter hell; and, likewise, the man if he treats her unjustly.
"Never show off your happiness in front of a sad person" - Imam Hussain (as)
Knowledge will kill your heart if it’s not acted upon.
People who have been deeply graced by God never withhold grace from other people, but people who don’t feel like they’ve been terribly graced are the meanest people on the planet.
You can destroy the mosque, tear down the temple, break all that can be broken. But never break anyone’s heart, because that’s where God lives.
