MashaAllah, that was a nice quote by Sheikh al Shadhili (rahmatullah alayh) that you used in the end.on January 14, 2006 5:56 AM
Sister Justoju you're absolutely correct about the quote. SubhanAllah sometimes lessons taught in the clearest, easiest, and precise manner stick in our minds. Furthermore, they allow us to apply these words to ourselves. There's this other quote I've been waiting anxiously to post on Hidaya, but I need to sit and write another piece to accompany it InshaAllah:)on January 14, 2006 10:35 AM
Very good poem, specially the quote at the end.
Sabr is something most of us lack, specially when it comes to our duas being answered, and we do despair quite easily. And it's hard to remember these words at such a testing time, but nevertheless, we should try not to lose sight of the fact that Allah knows best, and He is the best planner.on January 14, 2006 4:17 PM
SubhanAllah, well said sister Saima. Oftentimes we wail and despair at our affairs, some even go as fate as cursing their fate without ever realizing the following:
1. Allah SWT's tests those most dear to HIM
2. The current situations we face are what Allah SWT has WILLED to be the best for us.
3. Lessons can be learned from every experience
But alas we are everforgetful human beings and the struggle is always to stay on the straight path. We should preoccupy ourselves in THIS task, of maintaining the middleway and remembering/praising/reflection on ALLAH SWT.on January 15, 2006 1:08 AM
