When I feel hopeless, He gives me hope through prayers
Man's way leads to hopeless end, Allah's way leads to endless hope
When reason reaches its peak and the souls of His lovers feel helpless and disabled, they grow restless and stretch their hands in supplication, seeking comfort for their burning souls. When every manner of search within their power has been consumed, the doorway to Him is opened.
- Al-Hujwiri, "The Kashf al-Mahjub"
When other human beings hurt me, He heals me
When other human beings break their promises, He keeps His Promises
When other human beings turn their love, He loves me always
Allah kindles the fire of love in the hearts of the chosen, so that their carnal selves are consumed. Once ignited the fire of longing never dies. That is the flame about which the Prophet said, "When Allah wills the good of his servant, He kindles a light of faith in his heart."
When they asked him what were the signs of that fire, he replied, "Deviation from the abode of vanity; progression toward the Eternal."
- Abu Sa'id, "Rabi'a the Mystic"
When other human beings find forgive is hard to do, He forgives my sins
He who transgresses or wrongs his own soul but then turns to Allah seeking forgiveness shall find Allah Forgiving, Merciful.
- Qur'an, An-Nisa, Surah 4:11Praise to you yaa Allah....Allah Akbar
You are my creator, thus to You I shall return
