Allah speaks apologetically to his destitute (believing) servant in this world - like a brother explaining himself to a brother - saying, ‘Nay, I swear by My Might and My Glory, I did not impoverish you to disgrace you. Raise this veil and look at what I have given you in compensation for this world.’ So, when the veil is removed for him and he sees what Allah has substituted for him in exchange for this world, he will exclaim, ‘I have not been harmed, O Lord, seeing what You have given me in exchange.’

Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (a), Al-Kulayni: al-Kafi 2/264 h.18. (via yaseeneducation)

(via bu-hashem)

The believer only acquires true rest when he meets Allah, although rest may also be obtained by these four things: silence, by which you recognize the state of your heart and your self in your relations with your Creator; retreat, by which you are rescued from the evils of the age, outwardly and inwardly; hunger, which kills fleshly appetites and temptation; and wakefulness, which illuminates your heart, purifies your nature and cleanses your spirit.

Imam Sadiq (as) describing ‘rest’, Lantern of the Path  (via gharq)

(via sayr-wa-suluk)

Imam al-Sadiq [a.s] said: “For a Muslim, whatever Allah has decreed is good, and if he comes to possess all that is in the East and West, it will still be good for him.”

Then, he recited this Verse: “So, Allah protected him from the evil of their plot. [Holy Quran 40/45]”

Then he (al-Sadiq) said: “By Allah, they overpowered him (i.e. the one intended in the previous Holy Verse) and killed him but what Allah protected him from was being overcome in his faith.”

I pray to You, O’ my master, with a tongue that has been paralyzed by its sin. O’ my Lord, I confide to You with a heart that has been doomed by its mischief. I pray to You, O’ my Lord, frightened but wishful, hopeful but fearful. If I contemplate my sins, O’ my Lord, I become scared, but when I remember Your generosity I yearn
