Words Of Wisdom

Assalaamu alaikum wr. wb.

Greetings To All,

Ok, I know this is probably not a cool thing to do but I couldn't help it, I cut and paste the below quotes from another blog cos I found the sayings too irresistable and decided to copy'em instead of putting a link. Its run by a sister, and is a very informative blog (worth reading - May Allah reward her for her efforts.)
The quotes are by Shaykh Nuh Ha Mim Keller(May Allah Bless him much) in a recent suhba he gave, they are very spiritual in nature, the quotes are contributed by those who attended the suhba, may Allah(swt) reward them for their efforts. :grin:
Alhamdulillah Ya Rabbil Alameen.
Wasalaam

Quotes:

'love is not an easy matter...' (Shaykh Abd ar-Rahman Shagouri)

"The only escape from Allah, is to Allah"- Shaykh Nuh, in response to a question that ended with: "...so theres no escape from Allah?"

'man sumut najaa' Hadith of our Beloved (saw). With the rough meaning of, 'he who keeps quiet is saved'. In relation to the topic of keeping ones speech in check.

...that darknesses and tribulations upon the heart were from the wisdom of Allah and were to teach us to appreciate the blessings we have...he used the example that love after having being rejected is more sweeter than recieving love without any effort...so the lights that come to us after the darknesses of tribulation are sweeter than just receiving blessings without having suffered for them...

...that the key to the universe is la ilaha ilAllah...that all actions are but the action of Allah...true tawheed...

...that dhikr is the reason for existence...that we should take a moment to ready ourselves for the Divine Presence before beginning our dhikr...

...that the Divine Presence is a gift...so we have to show gratitude for it...

...that dhikr without the heart connecting to Allah is not dhikr at all...

...that dhikr is the greatest joy any of us can achieve...

...that dhikr burns off the shaitaan...

...that iman, complete tawakkul and genuineness in one's slavehood defeats shaitaan..


Thank You Brother Sulaiman
