Bring a thousand bags of gold coins to God,
and He will only tell you:
Bring the heart if you come to Us.

– Mevlana Rumi rahimahu Llah –


Amazed am I


Ashk shab bhar intizār e áfw e ummat meiń baheń
Maiń fidā chāńd aur yūń akhtar shumāri wāh wāh

Tears flowing all night, awaiting the pardon of his nation;
I’m sacrificed! (He ﷺ is) the moon yet he ﷺ counts the stars – how amazing!

–  Sayyidi A’lāHazrat رحمه الله تعالى –

The Sandal’s splendor


Out of awe for the Sandal’s splendor, we humbled ourselves before it
For as long as we humble ourselves before it we will be elevated!
So place it on the top of your head, for in reality
It is a crown whose form is that of a Sandal!
By the sole of the Best of Creation, it is superior
To any crown, such that [his] foot surpasses the parting line of the head!
It is a healing for the sick, a hope for the suffering
A security for the frightened-such are its virtues!

– Abū Bakr al-Qurtubī rahimahu Llah –



When morning dawns on the slave, he should contemplate upon the darkness of the night and brighthness of the day, and recognise the arrival of one brings about the arrival of the other. So too with the light of proximate knowledge: when it appears, it extinguishes the darkness of sin from the limbs.

– Imam Ghazzali rahimahu Llah –


O Allah, I shelter behind you from all deeds that will displease you. O Allah, I ask for the most essential, the most clean, and the honor You bestow. O Allah, do not make me so busy that I fall into the forgetfulness of those who forget You. May I be worthy of Your approval. O Allah, make me a servant remembered only for loving You, hoping for nothing from his worship! O Allah, fill my heart with joy from You, purify my tongue with Your Names, let my limbs labor on tasks You will find good and of which You will approve. O Allah, eliminate all traces, memories, recollections, and feelings that are not of You!

– Hazrat Junayd al-Bagdadi rahimahu Llah –
