Regular, small deposits of sadaqah will add up to a large sum when the time comes for Al-Hakam to make His judgement.

All of us need 'take a good look in the mirror' every once in a while. So we can look at ourselves on the outside to see what is sound and what needs to get fixed and what could be put to better use. So we can look beyond ourselves and see how we compare with everything else in creation.

-- And then we can grow.

In fact, we all have the ability to use this metaphysical mirror. We don't use it much,
 
-- we are so fearful of looking at our comfortable, well-defined selves and seeing something else.

If you live your life according to what makes sense in illusions of this dunya, you will never be sure of anything. As good as your mind might be at finding solutions and answers, it is even better at finding questions and doubts.

Submitting to Allah (swt) is to learn and to allow the nafs within you to align with those truths you learn, until your mind and heart and actions are guided by a voice that is truth with no illusions.

The most profound darkness comes just before the first thread of dawn.

A deep sleep of suppresses the spirit of the believer. Insha'Allah, we are sparks of light in this dunya, the first rays of a sun that never shone before -- but the darkness of night overwhelms all.

Let's get ready for fajr!

When a believer does something with Iman, and in the course of doing so trips up, he should trust that Allah (swt) will set him back on the right course. Al-Khaafid merely arranged this obstacle for him so that he should pave the way for other believers to be saved from this stumbling block.

Fire is dangerously consuming -- but nothing is as dangerous as ice.

If a fire burns inside you, let it burn and turn the fire towards Ar-Rasheed. But if your deen is of cold, lifeless path, you must stop. Turn around, and warm yourself with the fiery coals of Al Quran.

Why do we assume that the body is any further from Allah (swt) than the nafs?

Does Allah (swt) exist only in some spiritual space outside this dunya?

Al-Wasse‘e is everywhere.

If a you feel emotionally upset, be still until this mood has left. Do not allow it to pass your lips.

If that feeling should continue to be top-of-mind, speak only with a believer who can empathize and provide encouragement and strength.

And Allah knows best.

The opposite is also true!

Every theory, every thought, every human fabrication has its limitations.

Finite intellect cannot explain that which transends logic. But even within the disciple of logic, each proof is bound to its applicable purpose. And within that purpose, there will always be some sort of incompleteness.

Every posit in the Quran, on the other hand, is complete in itself and is infinite in its application. A thought within the Quran is as endless as Az-Zahir.

We are meant to work through the processes of this dunya.

Why? Because this is the means by which the dunya is enlightened: the spiritual must be tested in the mundane. And this can only be achieved by believers working within the everyday world.

The only real measure of whether something will be of benefit materially, is whether it is the right thing to do Islamically. A professional decision that conflicts with our deen will also be damaging materially.

Sometimes, we experience external pressure when Islam seems to stand in the way of success --but it is not as it seems. The straight path and the material path are in conflict only to our subjective eyes. In fact, they work together in complete compatibility.
