THOSE WHO SHOW MERCY WILL BE DEALT

WITH MERCIFULLY

“The Merciful One shows mercy to the merciful,”

said the Prophet. “Be merciful with those on earth.

The One in Heaven will be merciful with you.”

(AHMAD, ABU DAWUD, AL TIRMIDHI)

WHATEVER HAPPENS IS THE WILL OF GOD

When certain people offered to guard Ali (The

fourth Caliph), the son of Abu Talib, the latter

replied, “Destiny is man’s guardian.” According to

another tradition, he said, “No man will taste the

joy of faith until he realizes that he could never

have escaped what has befallen him, nor enjoyed

what escaped him.”

(ABU DAWUD, SUNAN)

THE MOST WORTHWHILE WORK IS

PREACHING THE WORD OF GOD

The Prophet said: “That God should grant

guidance, through you, to just one person is better

for you than everything on which the sun rises.”

 

 

A GOOD DEED IS OF NO VALUE IF IT MAKES

ONE PROUD

Ibn Ataullah As-Sikandari wrote in his book, Al-

Hikam: “A sin which makes one meek and humble

is better than a good deed which makes one proud

and arrogant.”
