My request is not for bliss of the Garden. I only desire to see You.

- Ibn Al-Farid

It is not beneficial to be a master at speech when you are immature at heart.

- Shaykh Abd Al Qadir Al Jilani (qaddas Allahu sirrah)

He has only made the world a place of others and a mine for troubles so that you would not love it. 

- Ibn ‘Aṭa’ Allāh al-Sakandarī

And to your Lord direct [your] longing.

Surat Ash-Sharĥ (The Relief) - سورة الشرح

 

Flee from every path of leisurely comforts; Expel greed, envy and vanity from your Heart. 

- Hazrat Ibn Arabi (qaddas Allahu sirrah)

O ye who believe!

Guard your own souls:

If ye follow (right) guidance,

No hurt can come to you

From those who stray.

The goal of you all is to Allah:

It is He that will show you

The truth of all that ye do.

Surat Al-Mā’idah (The Table Spread) - سورة المائدة

 

BismillahiRahmaniRahim

And Allah (Subhanhu wa Ta’ala) says:

O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another.

O My servants, all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance of Me and I shall guide you,

O My servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food of Me and I shall feed you.

O My servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me and I shall clothe you.

O My servants, you sin by night and by day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me and I shall forgive you.

O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, and will not attain benefiting Me so as to benefit Me.

O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you, that would not increase My kingdom in anything.

O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My kingdom in anything.

O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place and make a request of Me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more that a needle decreases the sea if put into it.

O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you and then recompense you for, so let him who finds good, praise Allah, and let him who finds other than that, blame no one but himself.
