There is no substitute for the Hereafter, and this world is not worth the price of one’s soul.
Imam Ali (a), Ghurar al-Hikam, pg 40 #32 (via yaseeneducation)

Imam Ali

يَا مَنْ اسْمُهُ دَوَاءٌ

O He whose Name is a remedy,

وَذِكْرُهُ شِفَاءٌ

And whose remembrance is a cure,

وَطَاعَتُهُ غِنًى

And whose obedience is wealth!

ارْحَم مَّن رَّأْسُ مَاِلهِ الرَّجَاءُ

Have mercy upon him whose capital is hope

وَسِلاَحُهُ الْبُكَاءُ

And whose weapon is tears!

يَا سَاِبغَ النِّعَمِ

O Ample in blessings!

يَا دَافِعَ النِّقَمِ

O Repeller of adversities!

يَا نُورَ الْمُسْتَوْحِشِينَ فِي الظُّلَمِ

O Light of those who are lonely in the darkness!

يَا عَالِماً لا يُعَلَّمُ

O Knower who was never taught!

Dua Kumayl (via muslim-latina)


At least I still have God. That’s something that can’t be taken away from me. He does not burden us with more than we can handle, and with hardship comes ease. At least that has been promised to me, and so I’ll hold on to those words until they makes some sense to me. I will have patience and trust His plan for me. It’s not over yet. I can do this. I have no choice but to.

Allah is not recognized by analogy (between the creations), nor is He perceived by senses, nor does He resemble people. He is introduced by signs and is recognized by marks
