God gives and forgives, man gets and forgets.

Ask the value of a year to a student who failed their exams. Ask the value of a month to a mother who's given a premature birth. Ask the value of a day to a father working to feed his deprived family.

We are meant to be God's servants, yet He is always serving us.

The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.

Civilized life has altogether grown too tame, and, if it is to be stable, it must provide a harmless outlets for the impulses which our remote ancestors satisfied in hunting.

Anyone who makes plans for after the revolution is a reactionary.

Idealism is the despot of thought, just as politics is the despot of will.

Mikhail Bakunin

The intellectual tradition is one of servility to power, and if I didn't betray it I'd be ashamed of myself.

Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn't quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he turned that cream into butter and crawled out. Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.

Allah's words are the best and most beautiful:

"Say: 'My prayer, sacrifice, life, and death are all for Allah, the Lord of the Universe.'" Qur'an (6:162)

"If Allah helps you, none can overcome you: If He forsakes you, who is there, after that, that can help you? In Allah let believers put their trust." - Qur'an 3:160

"...Hearts become tranquil through the remembrance of Allah" — Qur'an 13:28

"How much would those who disbelieved wish that they had been Muslims." — Quran 15:2

"O Human being! You strive hard to get closer to your Lord, and so you will certainly receive the recompense (of your deeds)." —Qur'an 84:6

My believing servants, My land is vast. Worship Me alone. (29:56) Every soul will experience the agony of death and to Me you will all return. (29:57) We shall give mansions in Paradise wherein streams flow to the righteously striving believers and therein they will live forever. How blessed is the reward of the hard-working people (29:58) who have exercised patience and who have had trust in their Lord. (29:59)

From of my personal fav's from Ahlul Bayt (as):

"Live amongst people in such a manner that if you die, they weep over you and if you are alive, they crave for your company."

- Imam Ali (a.s)

"The remembrance of death kills the desires in the self and uproots the sources of inattentiveness. It strengthens the heart about Allah's threats, softens one's attitude, breaks the pillars of inclinations, extinguishes the fire of greed, and it degrades the world."

- Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (as)

"I am amazed at the human being who refrains from food due to fear of illness but does not refrain from sin even though he knows about Hell-Fire." — Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as)

"Do not be the friend of Allah in public but an enemy of Allah in private." — Imam Al-Jawad (A.S)

Most probably my favourite:

"O Allah, what did he find who lost You & What did he lose who found You?" — Imam Al-Hussain (A.S)

I had so many others, I try to save them onto my iPad onto Notes but for some reason it won't let me open it :( I had so many beautiful sayins from RasulAllah (pbuh), the Ahlulbayt (as) & Qur'an I could have shared.

i hear so much about how hussain a.s. has died,but little of gem sayings like this. i had no idea this was from him.

beautiful and true to the bone

^ typical response from a female.

brothers, they love spending your money, getting their way all the time, and they most likely will only marry you for looks or money, or both.

(joking!)

or am i

You make me sick. :sick: . Not all people are that shallow. There are some who would actually go for what lies in a person's heart rather than money or looks. And then again you would not understand it.

Agreed. Markets where fake people, fake love, fake emotions and a delusion of feelings are being sold are the places to shop at.

Yeah but...it helps them find their happiness no? :donno:

Anyway it was a dig at people who find happiness through spending money on things they don't nneed! lol

"O listeners Allah has given us (Ahle

Bart) six things which no one else has.

He has given us special Wisdom,

Patience, Dignity, Power of speech,

Courage and Respect. He gave us

special benefit of belonging to the

family of his Prophet. To us belong

Hamza and Jafar. To us belong

Asadullah (The lion of Allah, Imam Ali

(a.s.)). To us belong the leader of the

youths of paradise (Imam Hassan(a.s.)

and Imam Hussain(a.s.)).

"Those who know me, know me. Those

who do not, then know that I am the

son of Mecca and Mina. I am the son

of Zamzam and Safa. I am the son of

he who gave Zakat to the poor. I am

the son of the best of those who have

ever put on Ihram and performed

ceremonies of Hajj. I am the son of

he who was taken on the night

journey from house of Allah to the

Mosque of Aqsa and then to Miraj. I

am the son of he who was taken

around by Gibrael to the Lote-tree of

the boundary (Sidratul Muntaha).

"I am the son of Muhammad

Mustafa(pbuh&hf). I am the son of

Ali Al-Murtaza(a.s.) who fought the

polytheists in the battle till they

submitted to Islam and fought in the

presence of the Prophet until his

sword was broken and to whom

Zulfikar was given. I am the son of

he who had the honour to migrate

twice in Islam. I am the son of Fatima

the best women of the world...". Imam Zainul Abideen(AS)

Imam Ali (as)

"You have challenged me to a battle. I accept

your challenge. But I have a proposal to make.

Why have a war involving murder and

bloodshed of thousands of ignorant people?

Why be a scourge to mankind? Let us have

mercy on them, whether they are sincere and

Allah-fearing Muslims, or ignorant,

unenlightened and greedy mercenaries

misguided and fooled by you. Let there be peace

and tranquillity for all the creatures of Allah.

Let us, you and I, have a single combat. Let it

be a combat unto death. Let the soldiers of

both armies stand aside and let two of us

alone combat with each other . Let the world

see and realize who is the sinner and who has

forgotten Allah and the Day of Judgement. Will

you accept this invitation of mine? Have you the

courage for it? Are you a man to face death

boldly and bravely or are you merely a vampire

sucking the blood of others surreptitiously?

Remember Mu'awiya! Though now old I am still

Abu al-Hasan, the man who killed your maternal

grandfather, your uncle and your brother in

single combats in the Battle of Badr. The same

sword is still in my hand, the same blood is still

flowing in my veins, the same heart is still

throbbing in my chest and with the same

courage I still face my enemy. Will you come

and face me alone?

Remember that I have not introduced any

innovation in religion, nor have I insinuated

schism. Verily, I sincerely believe in the

religion which you pretended to embrace

hypocritically with mental reservations and

pretensions , a religion which you in your heart

of hearts actually hated and which you gave up

quickly and cheerfully.

You pretend that you want to avenge the murder

of Caliph Uthman. Do you know who actually

killed him and who caused his murder? If really

you do so, then seek vengeance on them.

I see before me the day when you will be tired

of this war, when you will face defeat, when

you will find death or disgrace facing you, when

I shall scatter your armies, killing your famous

but misguided marshals, when I shall thin your

ranks and files; then in despondency and

despair you will turn towards the Book of

Allah, though you will have no faith in it and

no belief in the truth preached by it because

you and your followers being hypocrites have

no faith in Allah, in the Holy Prophet (s) and

the Day of Judgement and who have gone

back on their promises."

Your sickness is within you,

though you do not realize,

And your cure is within, yet you do not see.

You claim that you are nothing but a tiny entity,

Yet wrapped up inside of you

is the greatest universe

~ Imam Ali ( (as)

He who loves Ali is not secluded nor hidden,

You look into his eyes you see Ali's love is ridden,

You look at his skin it's like 'O' Ali' is written,

And clear to him is the allowed and the forbidden... Nouri Sardar

" You don’t know today whom

you’re fighting. You are fighting

the children of Muhammad, of Ali, of al-

Hasan, of al-Husayn, of the

Prophet’s family, the Prophet’s Companions.

You are fighting a people who have faith such

as no one else on the face

of the earth possesses. And you have chosen

open warfare with a people

who take pride in their history, their civilization,

and their culture,

and who also possess material power, ability,

expertise, knowledge,

calm, imagination, determination, steadfastness,

and courage. In the

coming days it will be between us and you, God

willing." Sayyed Hassan NasrAllah
