''Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough''.

- Ernest Hemingway

One of the best hadiths/quotes:

"your remedy is within you, but you do not sense it. your sickness is from you, but you do not perceive it. you presume you're a small entity, but within you is enfolded the entire universe. You are indeed the evident book, by whose alphabet the hidden becomes manifest. Therefore, you have no need to look beyond yourself. What you seek is within you, if only you reflect."

imam Ali ibn Abu Talib (a.s)

Keep in touch with the ones who have forgotten you, and forgive who has wronged you, and do not stop praying for the best for those you love.”

— Imam Ali (as)

Heh. My heart always yearn more of Ali ibn Abu Ta'alib. I can never be have enough of him.

I wonder and am astounded at the level of greatness this man reached. We must never forget, behind every great student (as) there is always a great teacher (pbuh)

Stoning prophets and erecting churches to their memory afterward had been the way for the world through the ages. Today we worship Christ, but the Christ in the flesh we crucified.

Origins? Yes, my parents and family members were before they got westernized and bollywoodized [blah-blah, I was raised abroad]. After that, no member of our family was religious. I don't wanna get into it. Long story. But no, I wasn't religious [or cared about religions] until some personal hardships befall me, I was considering suicide, and literally out of no-where, someone suggested me to read a book which is regarded as "Peak of eloquence." And lo! After that, Ali ibn Abu Ta'alib became my hero. Now I don't know whether I'm religious or not, all I know is I follow whatever Ali ibn Abu Ta'alib teaches, I guess that does makes me a Muslim. I want to learn more about Ali ibn Abu Ta'alib and his teaching, that's the reason I joined SC.

I don't think I am a great student. Far from it. Just a random psycho. For being someone who spend most of his life in ignorance of such a great teacher, I don't think that's right. Most of the members here are more well-versed in me.

Enough of me though --- QUOTES TIME!

Baghair hubb-e-Ali muddâ'aa nahiin miltaa

Ibaadaton kaa bhii hargiz silaa nahiin miltaa

Khudaa ke bandon suno Ghaur se Khudaa kii qasam

Jise Ali nahiin milte use Khudaa nahiin miltaa

Holy Prophet SA said:

“Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as) is Allah’s successor and My successor. He is Hujjat tul Allah (proof of Allah) and My Hujjat. He is the door to Allah and He is Door to Me. He is the Chosen One of Allah and of Me. He is loved by Allah and He is loved by Me. He is the sword of Allah and He is My sword. He is My brother, My companion, My minister, and My Wali. Those who love Him love Me, and those who hate Him hate Me. His friends are My friends and His enemies are My enemies. He is the husband of My Daughter. His Sons are My Sons. His war is My war. His words are My words. His orders are My orders. He is the master of all the successors of the prophets. He is the best of My nation. He is the master of all the people after Me." (Ghayatol Maram page 69 hadith 16, Kanz al Ommal 185, Ithbat al Hodat volume 3 page 632 hadith 860, Bihar ul Anwar volume 26 page 263 hadith 47)
