Whatever life takes away from you, let it go.
You have read a thousand books and gained vast knowledge,
But you never read your own self
You earnestly enter Mosques and Temples,
But you never entered your own soul
You fight with the Satan in the world everyday,
But you never fought with the evil that resides within your own mind
It is difficult to bring people to goodness with lessons, but it is easy to do so by example.
Whenever a believer privately prays for his believing brother, God will appoint an angel to pray for him and say: “You will also get whatever you asked for your believing brother.”
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

Verily you will never be able to attain that which you love until you are able to endure that which you despise.
In every moment we make a decision — whether conscious or unconscious. Will I choose to open my heart, send love, withhold judgment and thus free myself from fear? Or will I close my heart, project fear instead of extending love, judge others, and thus bind myself to fear? The choice is mine and mine alone.
Prophet Jesus (a.s.) said, ‘He who has knowledge, acts upon what he knows and teaches it to others is regarded as great in the greatest Kingdom [of the heavens].’
