(LAIN-LAIN) ABOUT YASMIN MOGAHED

I knew that she is muslimah. But, I dont know anything about her. What I like is her quotation. I have liked her page on facebook. Her quotation is relaxing my mind. Below are some quotation from her page:

“If you know yourself, then you’ll not be harmed by what is said about you.”–Sufyaan ath-Thawree

“Taking pains to remove the pains of others is the true essence of generosity.”–Abu Bakr (RA)

“Through love, thorn becomes roses”

Lessons from story of Prophet Zakariyah (AS): He created you from nothing and you think He can’t give you what you’re asking—even when it seems ‘impossible’?

The recipe for misery is simple: Carry a deep sense of entitlement and expectations. And every time you give, keep track of what you are ‘owed’. The recipe for happiness is also simple: give out of love–not entitlement or expectations.

We were put on this earth to give. Anything we *get* is a gift.

“Live amongst people in such a manner that if you die they weep over you and if you are alive they crave for your company.”–Ali Ibn Abi Talib (RA)

Don’t ever resent the people who’ve left you or hurt you or let you down. They’re all part of your story. Widen the lens. Don’t get caught up in moments. Happy or sad, they all pass. And what remains is only the heart inside your chest–free or shackled, beautiful or ugly?

It takes a lot to close up an open person.

We hate the letdowns. We hate the dark and ugly aspects of life. But the truth is, it is the letdowns, the dark, and the ugly, that allow us to really appreciate the ones that *don’t* let us down, the light, and the beauty of this life. So grateful for the good friends.

Know who you can depend on. And who you can’t.

A lot of people have trouble balancing the love of the Creator and the love of the creation. It is something I myself have struggled with much of my life. On the one extreme, there are people who love the creation as they should only love the Creator. On the other extreme, there are those who reject the love of the creation all together. I think the correct balance is to understand it this way: We have only one Owner over our hearts. That Owner is God. But our hearts also yearn for companionship. The heart searches for its’ companion in the creation. And finding that companion of our heart is one of God’s greatest gifts to us. It is the ‘coolness of the eyes’ that the Quran speaks about. The problem is when we confuse *Ownership* and *companionship*. We take the creation as Owners and take the Creator as only a companion. And God knows best.
