belittle me in my own eyes
exalt me in the eyes of others
belittle me in my own eyes
exalt me in the eyes of others
Do not stop mentioning God just because your heart is not present. Forgetting Him completely is worse than being inattentive while you are mentioning Him; perhaps He will elevate you from being inattentive to being attentive, and from being attentive to being fully present with Him, and from being fully present with Him to being fully absent from anything but Him. [This is not difficult for God – Quran 35:17].
– Ibn Ata’illah al-Iskandari rahimahu Llah –
Submit to the Truth, and it will be with you. Against it, you will never prosper – and if you try to manipulate it, you only ruin yourself. O Allah, accept us and turn towards us with Your Mercy!
If you uproot the heart from God,
tell me: With whom will you place it?
with the people?
who cast you aside when they find no need for you?
– Unknown –
Don’t be satisfied with other than Allah as your love,
all besides Him is a mirage.
– Shaykh Ahmad al-Alawi rahimhu Llah –
Who does Allāh prefer?
The one who prefers Him.
— Shaykh ʿAbd al Raḥmān al Shāghourī —
I run from the chaos that is me
towards the Peace that is You.
– Mevlana Rumi rahimahu Llah –
God 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 ﷺ said,”When Allah wills the good of his servant, He kindles a light of faith in his heart.“When they asked him ﷺ what were the signs of that fire, he ﷺ replied,”Deviation from the abode of vanity; progression toward the Eternal.“
– Abu Sai’d al-Khayr –
He brings all of those who are led astray into the Way out of the desert.
May Muhammad ﷺ be the guide on the Way of Allah ﷻ forever!
– Mevlana Rumi rahimhu Llah –
Koh-e-Tur Ki Tarah Kar De Mujhe Tu Pash Pash
K Raakh Se Jo phir Zaat Meri Namudaar Ho
Qalb, Ruh, Zahir aur Batin
Anwaar-o-Tajaliyaat Se Maamar Ho

Rememberance of Him is the light of the heart
His presence is the key to the invisible.
– Imam Abul Hassan AL-Shadhili (rahimahu Llah) –
The following is a beneficial dua for the heart written by Imam Abdullah bin Alawi al-Haddad (may Allah be pleased with him), which was taken from the Khulasa of Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz, and translated by Shaykh AbdulKareem Yahya (may Allah preserve our scholars and grant us benefit through them):
اَللّهُمَّ أخْرِجْ مِنْ قَلـْبِي كـُلَّ قَدْرٍ لِلدُّنْيا وَ كـُلَّ مَحَلٍّ لِلخَلـْقِ يَمِيلُ بِي إلى مَعْصِيَتِكَ أو يُشْغِلُني عَنْ طاعَتِكَ أو يَحولُ بَيْنِي وَ بَيْنَ التَّحَقـُّقِ بِمَعْرِفتِكَ الخاصَّة و مُحَبَّتِك الخالِصَة
Allahumma akhrij min qalbiy kulla qadrin lid-dunyaa wa kulla mahallin lilkhalqiy yamiylu biy ilaa ma’siyatika aw yushghiluniy ‘an thaa ‘atika aw yahuwlu bayniy wa baynat-tahaqquqi bi ma’rifatikal khas-sah wa muhabbatikal khaalisah.
O Allah rid my heart of: any value for the world, and place for the creatures that make me incline to disobeying You, or distracts me from obeying You, or comes between me and the realisation of elect Knowledge of You, and true love of You.
Allahumma Amin Ya Rabb!
Do you rebel against Allah when you claim to love Him?
By my life, this is an extraordinary example!
If your love had been true, then you would have obeyed Him
The lover obeys the one he loves
– al-Mahmud ibn al-Hasan al-Warraq (a poet) –
The more you trust Him,
the more He amazes you
You’ll Not Win The Beloved’s Heart Unless You Lose Your Own.
– Mawlana Rumi rahimahu Llah –
Oh Allah ﷻ
take us to the City of Rasoolullah ﷺ
What Do I Have?
I do not have a thing…what do I have from myself?
I worry about my provision for what?
While the Creator provides for me
He ﷻ created the seven seas
but He ﷻ loves a single tear from you more –
so repent again and again
Allāh ﷻ will expose the insincere ones.
Everything has its fruits, just wait for them.
Sayyiduna Imam al-Shafi’i rahimahu Llah stated in his final days of sickness :
When my heart was hardened and my courses constrained , I made my hope a stairway to Your forgiveness . My sins burdened me heavily , but when I measured it by Your forgiveness Lord … Your forgiveness was far greater.
Fear Almighty Allah. Fear none but Allah. Always turn towards Him. Ask all your wishes from Allah. Do not turn to any besides Allah. Do not have faith in any but in Allah. Remain firm on Tauheed (belief in One Allah).
There is no salvation without Tawhid. When the heart becomes linked with Allah then nothing else seems to look good to him. I have reached the level of True Love. It is a domain where worldly love has no place.
– Shaykh Abdul Qadiral- Jilani (Sultan al -Awliyah) rahimahu Llah –
A Bedouin was heard to have said as he clung to the coverng of the Ka’aba,
O Allah, I seek Your forgivness, although I shamefully persist in sin. How could I stop begging Your Forgivness, when I know how generously Your Pardon? What loving kindness You Bestow on me, when You have no need of at all! How often I offend and anger You, although I need You so badly! How often I offend and anger You, although I need You so badly! What a Lord – He fulfils all His Promises, yet Pardons when He Threatens! Take my great sin into Your Mighty Pardon, O Most Compassionate of The Compassionate!
Allah has encompassed all things in knowledge (65:12)
