Tanya: Her Journey to Peace

Islamic Quotations: Allah gave you this world so that you may seek the Hereafter…

Do not ask someone to meet a need that God can meet. How can such a person give you what He does not? How can one who is unable to meet one’s own needs meet those of another?
Ibn `Ata’ Allah al-Iskandari

Allah gave you this world so that you may seek the Hereafter with it, not for you to desire it.
Uthman (ra)

Do not fall into despair if blessings come late, even though you keep asking for them, because Allah has promised to heed prayers. Yet the wish to be granted will be granted because He wishes it for you, not because you wish it for yourself.
Ibn `Ata’ Allah al-Iskandari

Here again, the word is used with this meaning, stating that the universe “expands.” The Arabic word “moosiaaoona” in the term “inna lamoosiaaoona,” translated into English as “it is We Who are steadily expanding it”, comes from the verb “evsea,” meaning “to expand.” The prefix “la” emphasises the following name or title and adds a sense of “to a great extent.” This expression therefore means “We expand the sky or the universe to a great extent.” This is the very conclusion that science has reached today.

Ayah and Hadith of the Day

Who speaks anything better than the one who summons to Allah, acts righteously, and says,
“I am among those who submit to Allah”?
(Surah Fussilat: 33)

Whoever causes a harm to believers, Allah harms him. Whoever causes difficulty to them,
Allah makes his way difficult.
