“A man insulted Khalid ibn Walid, so he turned to him and said, ‘It is your scroll of deeds, so fill it with whatever you wish.’”

Khalid ibn al Walid (via fatiimamusliima)
“Freewill is the most difficult of God’s gifts to understand or appreciate. The person who gives up selfish freedom and agrees to be God’s servant will always be truly free.”

Gotta keep this in mind.
“Don’t think for a moment that your heart is ‘strong’. The heart is a vulnerable fool. It turns more easily than you turn your head. That’s why its called ‘qalb’ (that which turns). Protect it with layer upon layer of guards. And the only guard is the *consistant* remembrance of God.”

Yasmin Mogahed (via islamicrays)
“Being brave doesn’t mean you aren’t scared. Being brave means you are scared, really scared, badly scared, and you do the right thing anyway.”

“By Allah, Allah does not want anything from people other than they possess two qualities: that they acknowledge the bounties He has bestowed on them so that He may give them more, and that they acknowledge (and repent for) the sins they have committed, so that He may forgive them.”

Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.)

“Knowledge is a Noor, when it enters in the heart, you cannot remain calm without practicing that knowledge (you become restless until you act upon it). That is knowledge. Otherwise, it’s information. So beneficial knowledge means that the person will get a Noor in his heart, a light in his heart and such a temptation for acting upon it that he cannot resist himself, he will act upon the knowledge.”

Hadhrat Mufti Muhammad Shafi (ra)

“It’s not that people can’t love you if you don’t love yourself. It’s that you won’t feel it because it’ll always seem like you don’t deserve it.”
