Patience & Faith

Sunday, August 09, 2015


That which is on earth We have
made but as a glittery show for
the earth, in order that We may
test them -  as to which of them
are best in conduct.

Surah Al Kahf 18:7

Do not bear malice
If malice leads you astray
Your grave will be dug next to the malicious

Malice is born of Hell
It's the enemy of your faith

You are what you think

- Rumi

Yesterday and tomorrow

"Yesterday doesn't exist, don't dwell on that nothing.
Tomorrow hasn't come, don't try to shape it now."

The Great Learning

"The ancients who wished to clarify their clear virtue under heaven would first govern their countries. Those who wished to govern their countries would first regulate their families. Those who wished to regulate their families would first cultivate their personal lives. Those who wished to cultivate their personal lives would first make their hearts true. Those who wished to make their hearts true would first make their intentions sincere. Those who wished to make their intentions sincere would first extend their knowledge."

- The Great Learning

(I came across this passage in one of my books. Something to think about .........)

"O you who believe!
Turn to Allah with sincere
repentence: in the hope that your
Lord will remove from you your ills 
and admit you to Gardens beneath which 
rivers flow.."                           - 66:8

Love Songs to God


With life being so busy, I deeply regret the fact that I have so little time to enjoy my (paperback) books. I try to look for ebooks but it has been difficult to find something I want/need. Imagine my joy when I found the above book on the Google Play Store. As my smartphone is with me almost all the time, I am able to steal private moments everyday to enjoy this treasure of a book. Thank-you Irving Karchmar! Jazaak Allaahu khayran!

Call on Me

Invoke His name when in need: -

"When my servants ask you concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every supplicant when he calls on Me............. 

- 2:186

Pursuit of Knowledge

"Knowledge does not refer to possessing plenty of information; rather, knowledge is a light that Allah swt puts into the heart of a true believer."

- Imam Malik
