Nature of this World
Surely, the likeness of this world is that of a snake:

it is soft to touch, and deadly poisonous.
The ignorant child is distracted by it,
and the one with understanding and intellect is cautious of it.
So turn away from what fascinates you in it,
for how little of it stays with you
- Ali RA-

Eesa ibn Maryam (alayhi salaam), who said:
"Do not look at the people's faults as if you are lords, but look at your own faults as if you are slaves, because people are of two types: afflicted and pardoned. So have mercy on the afflicted and thank Allaah for pardoning you and protecting you from it."

Know that the hearing and eyesight are two open doors; whatever enters through them reaches the heart.

People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

Afflictions come to us, not to make us sad but sober; not to make us sorry but wise. Though all afflictions are evil in themselves, yet they are good for us, because they discover to us our disease and tend to our cure. By afflictions God is spoiling us of what otherwise might have spoiled us.

Allah has a water container in the earth, which is the heart. The hearts that Allah likes most are those which are the strongest, the purest, and the softest--------strongest in religion, purest in trust, and softest towards one's brother.

Reading opens the mind, guides one to correct morals and sharpens one's ability to think. Reading is a comfort for the lonely, a stimulant for the thinker, and a lamp for the traveler. To not read makes one limited in one's speech, thinking, and personality.

When we make an inner commitment to realize a clear-cut goal, a great force of will wells up within us. It is a will bigger and stronger than our little will; it is like a wind from the great will of God that comes to fill the sails of the ship of determination, the mast of which have hoisted with our commitment to succeed. We do nothing by ourselves, but when we declare our firm intention to accomplish a task and we ask for support from God, we are given the strength, the wisdom, and the means to succeed.

The force that opposes determination is inertia. Inertia is not a static thing; it is a dynamic force. Like any force, it tends to magnify itself and gain momentum until or unless it is superceded by another force stronger than itself. We slip into undertow of inertia, and then forsake our commitment. It takes a strong will to buck inertia, but overcome it we must. When we refuse to be intimidated by unchosen habit, and we do just one act of our practice again, the momentum of the practice will increase, and it will be easier and easier, and not harder and harder, to continue. It's all a matter of vectors and dynamic momentum.

Bear in mind that those who carry others' secrets to you might bear yours to others. Do not give such tactless people any chance to learn even the smallest details of your private concerns.

There is no one who is so far from God that he or she cannot succeed. Sometimes things come easily in life, and sometimes they don't. Sometimes we are given the gift of growth, and sometimes we have to work for it and earn it. When the wind is not blowing----row! The people who succeed are the ones who are willing to hold fast to their dream, even in the face of apparent or temporary failure.

There are going to be rewarding days and there are going to be days when you just want to quit. They are all part of the job. On the tough days, just keep plugging away. Look at the job from a broader perspective----and that will make a difference. Character is the ability to follow through on a project long after the mood has passed. Often, we must stick to a task even if the goal does not seem to be at hand. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Don't grieve over the vicissitudes of your existence--------you cannot escape hardship. Be at peace, for after poverty comes wealth, after thirst comes drink, after separation comes a joyous meeting, and after sleeplessness comes sound rest.

Be not deluded and blinded by the small thinking of men. Their goals are as foolish as the paths they take to reach them. You are living in a world of erroneous thinking. You must break out of the patterns of thought that blind men to themselves. Begin your liberation with a few changes in your thought, and you mark for yourselves the right to walk the entire kingdom.

We must push on relentlessly toward our goal, no matter what thoughts of unworthiness or failure attempt to dissuade us. Never allow yourself to feel that your spiritual work, your striving, or your discipline is not paying off. Even if you did not see the results immediately, or if you are not acknowledged by others, your actions are never for nought. If you are chopping down a tree, you may hack away for hundreds of blows and not see the tree move a millimeter. It is only when you make the final cut that the tree falls. Although you saw no apparent progress, each and every one of those blows was equally necessary to accomplish your goal. A saint is a sinner who never gave up.

He made the Hereafter an abode to reward his believing servants only because this world cannot contain what He wishes to bestow upon them and because He deemed their worth too high to reward them in a world without permanence.
