Ibn al-Jawzî رحمة الله عليه says:
“You should know that the beauty of a person’s Islam lies in his leaving those things that do not concern him. When Allah wills evil for a person he puts him through the test of argumentation – when Allah wills good for a person he inspires him to do good deeds.
If Allah takes away your tongue and gives back to you your heart he has been extremely kind to you; but if he takes away from you your heart and gives you back your tongue then know that you are in a serious calamity.
al-Mutashâbihât fil-Qur’an – Page 11
