Do Not Be Sad


Do not be sad: Sadness causes you to imagine poison when you are really looking at pure water, to see a cactus when you are looking at a rose, to see a barren desert when you are looking at a lush garden, and to feel that you are in an unbearable prison when you are living on a vast and spacious earth.


–Dr. ‘Aid al-Qarni in his book “Don’t Be Sad”


My Happiness Is Only From Allah


“Verily, my  happiness is my iman.

& Verily, my iman is in my heart.

& Verily, my heart doesn’t belong to anyone but Allah.”

–Asma bint Abu Bakr
