The body is purified by water, the ego by tears, the intellect by knowledge and the soul with love.
- Imam Ali (A.S)
The biggest wealth is that one should not have an eye on what others possess.
- Imam Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S)
اللهم إني أحبك وإن كنت أعصيك


Allahuma inni uhibbuk wa in kuntu ‘aaseek

O Allah, I love You even though I disobey you.

(via asquaredthoughts)

If every time Allāh gave you what you ask Him for immediately then your heart wouldn’t be desperately dependent on Him. Your īmān wouldn’t grow, and neither will your relationship with Allāh.

Look at the Youth of the Cave. They got what they wanted but not before they became utterly in need of Allāh.


Reflection from sūrat al-Kahf. (via quranicreflections)

So true. I know of so many who have gotten what they wanted and have forgotten religion altogether.

YAQEEN - that’s all you need.

اَلمُصيبَةُ واحِدَةٌ ، وَ إنْ جَزَعَتْ صارَتْ اِثْنَـتَيْنِ

A tragic event is one. If you do not cope with it, it becomes two.

And why would I not weep, for I have no knowledge of my fate and I observe my self deceiving itself and my days are fading away and the wings of death have flapped close by. So why wouldn’t I cry! I weep for my soul’s departing my body, I weep for the darkness of my grave, I weep for the narrowness of my vault, I weep for the questioning of Munkar and Nakeer of me, I weep for my coming out of my grave (on the Resurrection Day) naked, humiliated and carrying my book (of deeds) on my back.

Mujhse mumkin nahin tujhko samajhna, ya Rabb,
Jis ka baanda ho Ali (A.S) jaisa, wo khuda kya hoga?
