Better than good is its doer, more beautiful than beautiful words is he who says them and weightier than knowledge is he who carries it. —Imam Ali (A.S)

The one who eats and gives thanks has the same reward as the one who fasts (who will be rewarded in the Hereafter). The reward of one who is healthy and gives thanks is the same as the one who is suffering and is patient. The reward of one who gives charity and is thankful is the same as the one who is deprived but content.
Prophet Muhammad (S), Mishkat ul-Anwar (via wesleepwedream)
One who whole-heartedly realizes a God-given blessing has expressed the due thanks.
Imam Sadiq (‘a), Mishkat ul-Anwar (via wesleepwedream)
It is written in the Torah: O son of Man, if you ‘empty’ yourself (i.e. disengage yourself from all other preoccupations to make yourself available) for My worship, I will fill your heart with richness and I will not abandon you to what you seek and long for. And it will be upon Me to close the door of poverty upon you and to fill your heart with awe for Me. And if you don’t ‘empty’ yourself for My worship, I will fill your heart with preoccupation with the world and I will not close upon you the door of poverty and will abandon you to what you seek.
Imam Hussain (a.s.)
