Utilise Ramadhan

From today all noises of conversation shall cease. If any man allows Ramadan to be wasted, it is a great sorrow indeed.

Maulana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi on the morning of the first of Ramadhan.

Lean on Allah

If you lean against a rotten tree trunk, it will not support you, you can rely only on that which is truly healthy and whole, and that is Allah.
Nothing else provides completely trust worthy support and security.

Rely on Allah

To know with certainty that you will never receive less than what was destined for you is the essence of reliance upon Allah.

Be Mindful of Allah

Abu al-‘Abbas ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas, radiyallahu anhuma, reported: One day I was behind the Prophet, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, and he said to me:

“O young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice] : Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. If you (have need to) ask, ask of Allah; and if you seek help, seek help from Allah. Know that even if the Nation (or the whole community) were to gather together to benefit you with something, they would not benefit you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with something, they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.”

[Tirmidhi]

Good Character

Beautiful character melts sins just as water melts ice. Evil character corrupts deeds just as vinegar spoils honey.
