Therefore if the pains of this world tire you, do not grieve. For it may be that Allah wishes to hear your voice by way of duaa. So pour out your desires in prostration and forget about it and know; that verily Allah does not forget it."
-Ibn al Qayyim
"Verily, I constantly renew my Islam until this very day, as up to now, I do not consider myself to have ever been a good Muslim." Sheikh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (Narrated by Ibn-al Qayyim in 'Madarij as-Salikin" 1/218)
"In worldly affairs, I never developed hasad for anyone because every person is one of two things. If he is pious, he is a Jannati (an inmate of Jannat). How is it possible to have hasad for a Jannati? If he is evil, he is a Jahannami (an inmate of Jahannam). How can one envy a Jahannami?"
"I am a traveler seeking the Truth, a human searching for the meaning of humanity, and a citizen seeking dignity, freedom, stability and welfare under the shade of Islam. I am a free man who is aware of the purpose of his existence and calls, truly, my prayer and my sacrifice, my life and my death, are all for Allah, the Cherisher of the worlds; He has no partner. This I am commanded and I am among those who submit to His Will. This is who I am. Who are you?" - Hasan Al-Banna
Al-Fuḍayl ibn 'Iyāḍ ุฑุถู ุงููู ุนูู said, "Do not feel repelled from the paths of guidance by how small is the number of its people,
nor be deceived by the large number of those who are ruined!
And do not be harmed by how small is the number of those making progress!"
How beautiful is this Analogy between Yusuf (Alayhi Salam) and the month of Ramadan by Ibn al Jawzee (rahimahullah)!
"The twelve months of the year are like the twelve sons of prophet Yaqub.
And just as prophet Yusuf was the most beloved to Yaqub, the month of Ramadan is the most beloved to Allah.
And just as Allah forgave the eleven brothers by the duah of one; Yusuf.
He can forgive your eleven months of sins by your duahs in Ramadan." -Imam ibn Al-Jawzee
Things don't change do they. Al-Ghazali in his refutation of "the philosophers"
"whoever takes up these mathematical sciences marvels at the fine precision of their details and the clarity of their proofs. Because of that, he forms a high opinion of the philosophers and assumes that all their sciences have the same lucidity and apodeictic solidity as this science of mathematics. Moreover, he will have heard the talk of the town about their unbelief, their negative attitude, and their disdain for the Law. Therefore he ceases to believe out of pure conformism, asserting: "If religion were true, this would not have been unknown to these philosophers, given their precision in this science of mathematics." Thus, when he learns through hearsay of their unbelief and rejection of religion, he concludes that it is right to reject and disavow religion. How many a man have I seen who strayed from the path of truth on this pretext and for no other reason! "
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
