26: Weeping in Fear

“Hellfire has been made forbidden for the eye which wept out of the fear and awe of Allah… Hellfire has been made forbidden for the eye which stayed awake and vigilant (through the night) in the Way of Allah.

This dunya is the place where Allah’s revelation came down. And it’s the place where Allah’s Prophets prayed and bowed down. And it’s the marketplace for the allies of Allah… in this marketplace, they received Allah’s mercy, and earned His jannah.”

22: To Give Thanks

When you rise from sleep, thank Allah with all your heart for the new day, the chance to start over. The chance to grow and get closer to Him. Thank Him for the air you’re taking into your lungs, and for each breath He’s given you – without having to do anything on your part – since the day you were born.
