A safe haven in this world necessitates that you prefer the guidance Allah (God) bestowed upon you over everything that distances you from His guidance
Not having enough good deeds will be the fault of the believer alone.
Be in a safe haven today to be safe in heaven tomorrow.Jamal Abdinasir (via Twitter)
To save just one life is like saving all of humanity.
To be a source of guidance for just one seeker is better than the world and all that is in it.
Never let the brokenness of the world stop you from healing or helping that one person in front of you.Dr. Omar Suleiman (via Twitter)
Be careful what you say. Don’t let your words wound people’s hearts. Be selective in your choice. Use words that encourage, empower and motivate. Use your words to invest in all that’s good. We need that now more than ever. Keep negativity far away.Mufti Ismail Menk (via Twitter)
If anyone continually asks forgiveness, Allah (God) will appoint for him a way out of every distress, relief from anxiety, and will provide for him from where he never realized.Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him)
The “signs” [Qur’anic references to natural phenomena] accomplish exactly what their designation suggest: they act as guideposts, capture one’s attention, assist in guiding one to deeper reflection, and, sometimes, to belief. Their power lies not in giving explicit and precise descriptions of natural phenomena, but in their ability to inspire man’s curiosity and awe throughout the ages.Struggling to Surrender by Dr. Jeffrey Lang (page 38)
You cannot simply read the Qur’an, not if you take it seriously. You either have surrendered to it already or you fight it. It attacks tenaciously, directly, personally; it debates, criticizes, shames, and challenges. From the outset it draws the lines of battle, and I was on the other side.
I was at a severe disadvantage, for it became clear that the Author knew me better than I knew myself.Struggling to Surrender by Dr. Jeffrey Lang (page 9)
It’s the Almighty’s plan that you’ve made it this far. Many things could’ve halted your progress but you’ve moved past them with grit. Many times you were tempted to give up but you’ve managed to find light where it was dim. You are exactly where you need to be. Trust Him.Mufti Ismail Menk (via Twitter)
Riches does not mean having a great amount of property, but riches is self contentment.Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him)
Verily, Allah (God) does not look at your appearance or wealth but rather looks at your hearts and actions.Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him)
Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever is not kind has no faith.Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him)
We don’t always have control over what happens in life, but we do have control over how we percieve events. Islam allows us to tear through the darkness and see the light.Imran Hussein (via Twitter)
Another day, another opportunity. If you’re still alive be grateful, say alhumdulillah (praise be to God), and show you mean it by making today count.Imran Hussein (via Twitter)
