If you want to test someone’s character, give him respect. If he has good character, he will respect you more, if he has bad character, he will think he is the best of all.
Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a)

- رسولُ اللّه (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): الأئمّةُ مِن وُلْدِ الحُسينِ عليه‏السلام ، مَن أطاعَهُم فَقَد أطاعَ اللّه‏َ، ومَن عَصاهُم فقد عَصَى اللّه‏َ عز و جل ، هُم العُروَةُ الوُثقى ، وهُمُ الوَسيلَهُ إلى اللّه عز و جل .

‪The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘The Imams from the progeny of al-Husayn (AS) are such that whoever obeys them has obeyed Allah, and whoever disobeys them has disobeyed Allah. They are the Firm Rope [to Allah], and they are the means of recourse to Allah.’

"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?

A message to aal ummayah (la) on the eve of martyrdom of Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen Ali ibn Abi Talib (as)

Every heart that aches

Allah soothes

Every tear that falls

Allah catches

Every cut that bleeds

Allah heals

Every sin regretted

Allah forgives


(via majda-farha)
It is important to look at the life of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and know that no one faced greater tribulation. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم lived to see all of his children buried, except for Fatima. How many people experience that in their lifetime? Out of six children, he saw five of them perish. His father died before his birth. His mother died when he was just a boy. His guardian grandfather then died. When he received his calling, he saw his people turn against him with vehemence and brutality. People who had once honored him now slandered him, calling him a madman, liar, and sorcerer. They stalked him and threw stones at him until he bled. They boycotted him and composed stinging invectives against him. He lost his closest friends and relatives, like Hamza, who was killed on the battlefield. His beloved wife Khadija after 25 years of blissful marriage died during the Prophet’s صلى الله عليه وسلم most difficult moment. Abu Talib, his protecting uncle, also died. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was the target of 13 assassination attempts. How many people have faced all of that? Not once in a single hadith is there a complaint from him–except when beseeching his Lord.

Shaykh Hamza Yusuf on the sabr of Prophet Muhammad (saws)

It honestly makes you think. Perhaps Allah gave him the most hardship not only as a motivator and reminder that we can get through our struggles because they obviously are not close to what he (saws) went through, but that hardship is one of the biggest ways we can actually get closer to Allah swt.

May Allah send peace and blessings upon the best of creation, on his family, and on his followers, ameen.
