dont know if it is simple but it is nice

Dead Hearts and Empty Supplications

 

It is reported that Ibrâhîm b. Adham (d162H) – Allâh have mercy on him – once passed through the market of Basrah. People gathered around him and asked:

 

O Abû Ishâq, Allâh the Exalted says in his Book. ‘Call on me, I will answer your prayers’, but we have been calling on Him for a long time and He does not answer our prayers. [ibrâhîm] replied, “O people of Basrah, your hearts have died in respect to ten things: First, you know Allâh but you do not give Him His rights; second, you have read Allâh’s Book but you do not act by it; third, you claim to love Allâh’s Messenger – Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him – yet you abandon his Sunnah; fourth, you claim to be enemies to Shaytân but you conform to [his ways]; fifth, you say you love Paradise yet you do not work for it; sixth, you say you fear The Fire yet you put yourselves closer to it [by sinning]; seventh, you say death is true but you do not prepare for it; eighth, you busy yourselves with the faults of others and disregard your own; ninth, you consume the favors of your Lord but are not grateful for them; and tenth, you bury your dead but take no lesson from them.â€

 

Abû Nu’aym, Hilyah Al-Awliyâ’ 8: 15, 16.

"Pain is an illusion of the senses. Fear, an illusion of the mind."

 

"A small mind is easily filled with faith."

 

"Incoming fire has the right of way."

 

"If your battle plan's working, it's probably a trap."

 

"Victory needs no explanation, defeat allows for none."

 

"A mind without purpose walks in dark places."

 

"The enemy of my enemy dies next."

 

"The universe is a big place, and whatever happens, you will not be missed."

 

"Those who live by the sword will be shot by those that don't."

 

"Life is the Emperor's currency, spend it well."

 

"Only the insane have strength enough to prosper; only those that prosper truly judge what is sane."

 

"Sanity is for the weak!"

 

"Knowledge is power; guard it well."

 

That'll do for now. :sl:

 

Bonus brownie points if anyone can tell me where they're from. :sl:

We should not be timid in praising truth and in seeking it from wherever it comes – even if it be from distant races or people different from us (Al Kindi)
