“Love is a psychological sickness, and if it grows strong it affects the body, and becomes a physical sickness, either as diseases

of the brain, which are said to be diseases caused by waswaas, or diseases of the body such as weakness, emaciation…” – Ibn Taymiyyah

“God is with the broken-hearted. When your heart breaks, it’s a good thing – the breaking of the heart is what opens it up to the light of Allah. The dunya is designed to break your heart, to crush it.” ~ Shaykh Hamza Yusuf

“A strong intention can make ‘two oceans wide’ be the size of a blanket, or ‘seven hundred years’ the time it takes to walk to someone you love.” ~ Rumi “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” – Mother Theresa

The word shams (sun) is feminine, and qamar (moon) is masculine. The sun burns itself out to give light and life to everything around, and the moon is muneer, meaning it reflects the light. Within itself it has no light; it radiates the brilliance of the sun. So when we shine as men, the implication is that we are reflecting the glorious light of our women. May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala be pleased with them. — Abdullah Adhami “Khadija was a great teacher; she has such a maqaam in our religion. She taught the Prophet salla’Allahu ‘alayhi wasalam who he was; she was the one who elevated him in his esteem. When he had self doubt she said no. You can see that when the Prophet salla’Allahu ‘alayhi wasalam married Aisha he had no fear of strong women. Theres a lot of men who fear strong women, who want them to be wallflowers. Whereas with the Prophet salla’Allahu ‘alayhi wasalam, that’s not the type of people he encouraged. His wives were women who talked back, and the reason he wasn’t afraid was because khadija was his first wife. She was a women of the world. She knew the world, and she was completely self confident. That’s a sunnah of our Prophet salla’Allahu ‘alayhi wasalam, to elevate women”. ~ Shaykh Hamza Yusus “Man is by definition a knower and by destiny a chooser; but, in the Islamic view, he does not have the capacity to make laws for the conduct of society.” ~Hasan Le Gai Eaton, Islam and the Destiny of Man “If you stop worrying about the interests of the state and start worrying about the interests of your souls, the state will take care of itself.” – Socrates
