    This whole religion revolves around knowing the truth and acting by it, and action must be accompanied by patience. - Ibn Taymiyya
    "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

      "What a wonderful thing to know Him (i.e Allah)! But how can one know Him but not love Him? How can one hear the caller but fail to respond? How can one know the profit to be gained in dealing with Him but still prefer others? How can one taste the bitterness of disobeying Him but still abstain from seeking the pleasure of obeying Him? How can one feel the severity of engaging in trivial speech, but fail to open your heart to His remembrance? How can one be tortured by being attached to others but not rush toward the bliss of turning to Him in repentance? Perhaps it is most surprising to know that while you are in need of Him, you are still reluctant to move toward Him because you seek others" -Ibn Al-Qayyim
      "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

        Those before you used to give
        to their worldly affairs what
        was left over from their pursuit
        of the hereafter. But today you
        give to the matters of the hereafter,
        the leftovers from your pursuit of
        worldly affairs. 'Awn ibn 'Abdillah.
        "My servants, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful." (Surat az-Zumar: 53)

          Imam Ahmad was asked, “When is there rest?”
          He answered, “When you put your foot in Paradise, you will find rest.”

            How is possible for one's heart to be certain that one is going to meet Allah swt, that Allah swt sees and hears all that he does, and knows his secrets, and that he will be be made to stand before Allah swt, answerable for all his deeds - how can one be certain and aware of all this, and yet persists upon things which displease Allah: persists abandoning Allah's orders, neglecting His rights, and yet claims he has good expectation of Allah?


            ~Ibnul-Qayyim.

              And be optimistic when destiny decrees
              Do not despair due to the events of the past
              For the events of this world were not meant to last"

                Whoever loves this Dunya and is pleased by it, then he should know that love of the akhira is leaving their heart because the two cannot co-exist in one heart.

                      We cannot change the past to rewrite a better beginning, but we can work for the future and strive for a better ending.

                                If you give up when it's winter,*

                                you will miss the promise of your spring,*

                                the beauty of your summer,*

                                Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest.*

                                Don't judge life by one difficult season.*

                                Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come some time or later.*
