    When a calamity brings us closer to the Almighty, it is a gift.
    When a gift leads us away from the Almighty, it is a calamity.
    ~ Mufti Ismail Menk

    Sometimes you want something really badly and you can't have it no matter how hard you try, it might be because Allah knows it's not good for you.
    Accept your Qadar and trust His Plan because Allah knows best.

    -- Abu Muawiyah Ismail Kamdar

    “As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good; I was actually being re-directed to something better. You must convince your heart that whatever Allah has decreed is most appropriate and most beneficial for you.”

    - Imam Ghazali (ra)

    "If you can be unknown, be so; it doesn’t matter if you are not known and it doesn’t matter if you are not praised. It doesn’t matter if you are blameworthy according to people if you are praiseworthy with Allah the Mighty and Majestic." - Fudayl ibn Iyad

    Allah may give a person the dunya while He hates him, and He may deprive another while He loves him.

    If the dunya brings one closer to Allah, it is a blessing, and if it distances from Him, it is a gradual punishment and a curse.

    -Shaikh Abdul Aziz Al-Tarefe

    Enough as a punishment for sins is that they prevent you from worshipping Allah, even if you wanted to. - Ibn Al Qayyim.

    One of the salaf (early generation) said: "A person may commit a sin and enter Paradise because of it, or he may do a righteous deed and enter Hell because of it. They said: How is that?

    He said: He commits a sin then keeps thinking of it, and when he remembers that he regrets it, feels sorry, beseeches Allah, hastens to erase it and feels brokenhearted and humble before his Lord, and that removes self admiration and pride from him. Or he may do a good deed then keep thinking of it, talking about it, feeling proud of it and feeling arrogant because of it, until he enters Hell.”

    End quote from Tareeq al-Hijratayn, p. 169-172

    Worrying about the future won't change your destiny. Just live. Have a heart full of trust that Allah only wants the best for you!

    How many blind people would pay anything to be able to read the Qur’an,
    how many deaf people would pay anything to be able hear the Azan,
    … You see; we’re very rich, but just not grateful… “

    “And few of My servants are grateful.”
    [Quran 34:13]

    When you're doing the right thing, don't expect everyone to be happy with it.
    If Allah is pleased with your actions, you'll be pleased with the end result.
