  “O son of Adam, do not be happy with richness and do not despair of poverty. Do not feel sad during affliction and do not rejoice over prosperity, for just as gold is tried by fire, the pious are tried by affliction. You will not attain what you want except by giving up what you desire, and you will not attain what you aspire to except by enduring patiently what you hate, and exerting yourself in implementing that which has been made compulsory upon you (by Allah).” – Ali ibn Abi Talib(ra)

 

Little drops of water
Little grains of sand
make the mighty ocean
and the pleasant land

 

 

Whoever desires to purify his heart,

Then let him prefer Allah to his desires

-Ibn Al Qayyim
