(Surah Al-Imran, 103)
All night, a man called “Allah”
Until his lips were bleeding.
Then the Devil said, “Hey! Mr Gullible!
How comes you’ve been calling all night
And never once heard Allah say, “Here, I am”?
You call out so earnestly and, in reply, what?
I’ll tell you what. Nothing!”
The man suddenly felt empty and abandoned.
Depressed, he threw himself on the ground
And fell into a deep sleep.
In a dream, he met Abraham, who asked,
“Why are you regretting praising Allah?”
The man said, “ I called and called
But Allah never replied, “Here I am.”
Abraham explained, “Allah has said,
“Your calling my name is My reply.
Your longing for Me is My message to you.
All your attempts to reach Me
Are in reality My attempts to reach you.
Your fear and love are a noose to catch Me.
In the silence surrounding every call of “Allah”
Waits a thousand replies of “Here I am.”
I have prayed so much that I myself turned into prayer.Everyone who sees me begs a prayer from me.

Every breath of man brings him nearer to death—-[Hazrat Ali(May Allah be pleased with him)]
The World is three days:
As for yesterday, it has vanished,
along with all that was in it.
As for tomorrow, you may never see it.
As for today, it is yours, so work in it….
Arrogance is truly a punishment as it is something that blinds you from the reality
Allah Knows Best
Allah knows what’s best for us
So why should we complain
We always want the sunshine…
But He knows there must be rain…
We always want the laughter
And the merriment of cheer
But our hearts will lose their tenderness
If we never shed a tear…
Allah tests us often
With suffering and with sorrow
He tests us not to punish us
But to help us meet tomorrow…
For growing trees are strengthened
If they withstand the storm
And the sharp cut of the chisel
Gave the marble grace and form…
Allah tests us often
And for every pain He gives to us
Provided we’re patient
Is followed by rich gain…
So whenever we are down
And whenever we feel that everything is
It is just Allah’s way
To make our spirit strong.
Believers are like pearls. Wherever they may be, they are beautiful there.
-[Maliq ibn Dinar]
