  • Great Reminder(s).

    As-Salaam alaikum,
    From the sayings and/or teachings of some of Islamic World fine minds, I wish to share with you few reminders they gave us... which instil spiritual radiation, insight and help us peep into the secrets of Divinity. They are as follows:--

    (1) "Seek sweetness in 3 things: Prayer, making Remembrance [Zikr] of Allah and reciting the Holy Qur'an"-- Hasan Basri (d. 728)

    (2) "I want to teach you 5 such things which deserve your greatest anxiety to acquire:--

    (a) Have hope in Allah and none else.

    (b) Be afraid of nothing but sins.

    (c) If you do not know a thing, never feel ashamed to admit ignorance.

    (d) If you do not know a thing, never hesitate or feel ashamed to learn it.

    (e) Acquire patience and endurance, because their relation with true faith is that of a head to body; a body is of no use without a head, similarly true
    faith can be of no use without attributes of resignation, endurance and patience."-- Sayyadi Ali Ibn Abi Talib (d. 661)

    (3) "Devotion is not sound for anyone until he feels no concern for 4 things:- hunger, nakedness, poverty and disgrace."-- Sahl Abdullah al-Tustari (d. 896)

    (4) When asked about some worldly thing Rabi'a al-Adwiyya (d. 801) wanted to have, she replied: "I am ashamed to ask for a thing of this world from Him to whom
    this world belongs, how can I ask for it from those to whom it does not belong?"
