  • Even in the belly of the whale there was hope.

    Comment



    • "Truly in the heart there is a void that cannot be removed except with the company of Allah. And in it there is a sadness that cannot be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that cannot be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him. And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness."

          • Fudayl ibn `Iyad (rahimahullah) said, "A believer plants a palm tree and fears that thorns will grow. The hypocrites plant thorns expecting ripe dates to grow!"

            • You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.

              - Ibn Al-Jawzee

              • It is related that Abu 'Uthman was once riding in the street when a pot
                of ashes was thrown down upon him. He dismounted, and prostrated
                himself to God in gratitude, and then brushed the ashes from his
                clothes without saying a word. 'Shall you not rebuke them?' he was
                asked, but he replied, 'A man who deserves hellfire but receives only
                ashes cannot fairly be angry'.

                • Ibn Qudamah (rahimahumullah) once said that when one slanders you, you should be thankful that he spoke something about you which was untrue, for there are many blemishes on your account which are true which Allah hid from the world.
