If you knew the importance of adab (good manners), you would pray to Allah for more adab, instead of more (material) wealth
― Amir al-Mumineen, Imam Ali (as)
The best form of faith is the belief that God is with you wherever you are.
Please forgive me if I don’t talk much at times. It’s loud enough in my head.
You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters scars in your soul but instead sees them as cracks to put their love into that is the most calming thing in this world.
Muslim #1: Knock Knock
Muslim #2: Who's there?
Muslim #1: Nikkah
Muslim #2: Nikkah who?
Muslim #1: Nikkah, you.
They live happily ever after. The end. It was so beautiful. I cri everytiem.
You can never win the hearts of the people with the government of falsehood. Look at this world - some of the most powerful khulafa (caliphs) had the most extravagant of palaces, but today, nobody knows where their graves are. Aba Abdillah (as) had no palace, today 14 million people visit his grave. Did he have Muawiya or Yazid’s palace? No. But he had the heart that was a palace. And he had truth which enveloped peoples’ hearts. And that’s why you found on the tenth of Muharram, not one person from Imam Hussain’s (as) army joined Yazid’s army. But thirty people from Yazid’s army joined Imam Hussain’s (as) army. Tell me, have you ever heard that none of the seventy-two joined the ten-thousand, but some of the ten-thousand joined the seventy-two?
Falsehood can buy many supporters, but truth has only a few friends.
― Imam Hussein (as)
Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?
Women put their hands on their mouths when they cry, while men put their hands on their eyes. It is as if each subconsciously knows the source of their sins.
