Pearls of Wisdom....205

1. Praising the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) should come from loving him, and loving him should entail desiring what he desired, which was nothing other than to follow and obey Allah. [Aftab Ahmad Malik]

2. If your love were truthful, you would have obeyed Him;
verily the lover is obedient to the One he loves. [A poet]

3. To take the messenger as a model means to emulate him, follow his sunna, and to abandon opposition to him in either word or action. [Ibn Ali al Tirmidhi]

4. "The path of those whom You have blessed," means to follow the sunna. [Salh al Tustari]

5. The people of the sunna have the greatest knowledge of the Book of Allah. [Omar radi Allah anhu]

6. The invocation of God is a sign of faith, a liberation from hypocrisy, a protection from the devil, and a refuge from hell fire. [Anas ibn Malik radi Allah anhu]

7. Seek for sweetness in three things---------in ritual prayers, in invocation, and in reciting the Qur'an. [Hasan ibn Ali radi Allah anhuma]

8. Just as the effect of an atom's weight of food or drink or medicine is not lost on the body, so too the effect of an atom's weight of goodness or evil is not lost either in drawing near to God's door or in estrangement from Him. [Ibn Ata'Allah]

9. Remember Me when you are angry and I will remember you when I am angry [Gospel]

10. Strive to be as mindful of the Qur'an in deed as you are mindful of it in your recitation. [Ibn Ata'Allah]
