    Don’t let your past dictate who you are, but let it be a lesson that strengthens the person you will become.

    -- Zakia Usmani

      "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."

          It is narrated from Prophet Jesus (upon whom be peace), "Don't sit with the dead, lest your hearts die."
          He was asked, "Who are the dead?"
          He replied, "Those who love the world and desire it."

                      Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says: (translation of meaning )

                      “So compete in good deeds. The return of you (all) is to Allaah; then He will inform you about that in which you used to differ”
                      [Al Maidah 5:48].

                      Hasan Al Basri rahimahullah said:

                      "Whoever competes with you in religious commitment, compete with him, and whoever competes with you in worldly matters, give it up to him".

                        Ibn-ul-Qayyim (rahimahullah) :

                        The year is like a tree, months are its branches, days are the branch sticks, hours are its leaves, and the breaths are its fruits. Therefore, if one's breaths are in obedience [to Allah and His Messenger], the fruits of his tree are good. If they are in disobedience, his fruits are bitter. The harvest is on the Appointed Day, when one's fruits are found out to be either good or bitter.

                          A sheep is more alert than man.

                          On hearing the call of the shepherd it stops grazing while man ignores the call of Allah for the sake of his desires."

                            Trials and tribulation are feeling the heat and the cold, when one knows that they cannot be avoided, he will not feel anger at their onset, nor will he be distressed of disheartened. (Ibn al-Qayyim, al-Madaarij 3/289

                              "By Allah, I don't fear my past sins,
                              since I have sincerely repented to Allah
                              and Allah loves to forgive.
                              However, what I truly fear is that
                              in the future this heart of mine
                              will cease to rule by this Quran and this revelation."
