  • "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

      • 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.
        Quoted by Abi Nu'aym in

        Hilyat al `Awliya.

          • Ibn Abî Mulaykah – Allah have mercy on him – said:
            I met thirty of the Prophet’s Companions – Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – and every one of them feared falling into nifâq (hypocrisy); not one of them claimed he had the level of faith of Jibrîl or Mîkâ`îl.
            Quoted by Al-Bukhârî, Al-Sahîh, Chapter on the believer fearing that his deeds will be nullified without him realizing.

                • This dunya is like a shadow. If you try to catch it, you will never be able to do so. If you turn your back towards it, it has no choice but to follow you.

                  • 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.

                            Come to the Holy Land. [Salmān] wrote back, “Verily, the land does not make anyone holy; it is the deeds of a man that make him pure.”
