Never raise your need except to three ( kinds of people ): to a religious , to a brave man or to a nobleman.
Please find below our ‘Weekly Pearls of Wisdom’. This week we bring to you ‘Powerful Golden Pearls of Imam Hussain (AS) to Enrich Your Heart’. This is a month of Muharram, a month known for its sorrowfulness, sacrifice, new beginnings and gratitude to Allah. Hazrat Imam Hussain (AS) was a Grandson of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). We all know about the tragedy surrounding the martyrdom of Imam Hussain. Imam Hussain remains an icon of principles in the Islamic world. Hundreds of years after the tragedy of Karbala Imam Hussain’s name lives on. We bring to you some of the quotes from renowned figures in history on the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
“I learnt from Hussain how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”
“In a distant age and climate the tragic scene of the death of Hussain will awaken the sympathy of the coldest reader.”
Edward Gibbon (English historian and member of parliament)
How can a thing the existence of which is dependent on you be taken as a proof for your existence? Is there anything more evident than your “self” disclose you? Are you hidden to need a guide to find you?
Wisdom never attains perfection except by following the truth (obeying the commandments of God).
One who loves you prevents you from all evils, while your enemy persuades you to commit wrong and evil.
One who annoys God to please people, God leaves him to the people.
Never will be salvaged the people who win the consent of the creature at the cost of the dissatisfaction of the creator.
The Almighty God said: “The believing men and the believing women, they are guardians of each other, enjoin good and forbid evil… “God attaches primary importance to enjoining good and forbidding evil” as a duty for men and women. For he knows that if it were fulfilled all the other duties, easy or hard, will be accomplished. That is because “enjoining good and forbidding evil” is a call for Islam, it regains the rights of the oppressed and opposes tyrants.
One who pursues a goal through sinful ways, will ironically distance himself from that goal, and will approach what he was afraid of.
Beware that the need of people to you is among the blessings of God to you. So do not scare away the needy people when they come to you, as the God’s blessings will return and go elsewhere.
Hastiness is foolishness.
Avoid doing what makes you obliged to apologize for it. True believers never do anything for which they have to apologize. Fake believers , on the contrary , keep doing wrong and say they are sorry in the aftermath.
Whoever becomes generous becomes a noble; and whoever becomes stingy becomes vicious and mean-spirited.
Being thankful for a grace of God makes God reward you with another grace.
O’ people do compete in good deeds and haste in grabbing the good chances. By delaying good deeds, you reduce their value. By gaining victory win the respect and praise of others, and do not let others blame you for being lazy. If one does a favour to another but he does not thank him for it , be sure that God will reward him instead , and surely the God’s reward is greater and more generous.
