How many of us would be able to overcome our desires and resist the temptation of sin? How many of us even lower our gaze when we look upon something that we are not supposed to? The real prisoner is the one whose heart has been kept away from remembering his Lord, and the real captive is the one who has been captivated by his whims and desires.” Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah [d.728H]
“When the Holy Prophet was in great difficulty, he performed prayers. Why? Because prayers is a great blessing of Allah. In each difficult moment, to worship Allah is like seeking the protection of Allah. The person who is under the blessings of Allah is protected and has nothing to fear in this World (dunya), nor beyond the Herafter (akhirah). Prayers are the principles of the Prophets and good people and they performed prayer each time they encountered difficulties.”—A Servant of Allah. (via mussalman)
Don't cry because of the hardships of this life. Cry for the forgiveness of Allah. Don't cry and feel sad for Allah will never leave you alone to suffer. He is with the believer who calls His name. He smiles to the believer who repents. He loves the believer who runs to him in struggle. And on The Day that is coming, you will see how much love and comfort He gives to those Muslims who suffered for Him.
