Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Benefits of Acquiring Knowledge

February 14, 2009

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Acquire knowledge because doing so is good. Seeking it is worship. Reviewing it is glorifying Allah. Researching it is jihad. Teaching it to the ignorant is charity.

- Mu’adh Ibn Jabal (ra)

Solzhenitsyn and The Grateful Heart

February 27, 2008

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“It was only when I lay there on rotting prison straw that I sensed within myself the first stirring of good,” says Alexander Solzhenitsyn. “Gradually, it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through parties, states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either, but right through all human hearts. So, bless you, prison, for having been in my life.”

With Solzhenitsyn as our inspiration, let us take a moment to find the gift of one difficult thing we have faced and give thanks for its teachings.

Let Me Do It Now

January 14, 2008

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

We shall pass through this world but once.
Therefore, any good thing I can do,
For any living being,
Let me do it now.
Let me not defer it or neglect it,
For I shall not pass this way again.

- Anonymous (though sometimes attributed to Mahatma Gandhi).

Ya Haqq!
