      'Every love that leads away from His love is in fact a punishment; only a love that leads to His love is a heartfelt & pure love.'

          Someone said to Al-Hasan Al-Basree "We are unable to perform the night prayer so prescribe me a cure; Al-Hasan Al-Basree said : do not disobey Him during the day and He will help you stand before Him during the night."

              "It doesn't mean that one shouldn't enjoy life, but that when one understands that the "complete happiness" they are looking for in this dunya doesn't exist here, then it becomes easier to go through trials and to work for your akhirah."

                A calamity that makes you turn to Allah is better for you than a blessing which makes you forget the remembrance of Allah.

                  "Tell them (O Muhammad ): 'O My slaves who have wronged their souls, do not despair of Allah's mercy, for Allah will forgive all the sins. He is indeed very Forgiving, very Compassionate, Turn to Him then, and obey Him (in all your affairs).'"

                  (Al-Zumar:53,54)

                      "Do not lose hope in adversity and complain that God singled you out for punishment, remitting others guilty of worse sins.Your present state could very well be His intent to elevate your spiritual station; or He could just be testing your faith. Everyday that you persevere, you grow closer to perfection.Thus your present despair may be beginning of an infinite blessing."

                        When you sit with people of the dunya, you become a drop in their ocean, but when you sit with people of the akhira, the dunya becomes a drop in your ocean.

                              Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you don't have. Remember that whatever you have now was once among the things you only hoped for.
