quranic wisdom

وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا

And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them [harshly], they say [words of] peace

Quran (25:63)

أَتَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبِرِّ وَتَنسَوْنَ أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ تَتْلُونَ الْكِتَابَ ۚ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ

آية ٤٤ من سورة البقرة
“And you order people to decency (follow God’s Commandments) and forget (exempt) yourselves while you read the Book (Torah, Bible, Quran), Why wont you ponder your actions?”
Surat Albaqarah verse 44

God talking to fake holy men and hypocrites.

Dear Palestine, dear Syria, dear Burma, Dear Afghanistan, and dear every other oppressed country - do not think that Allah does not know what you are going through. Do not think that Allah cannot see what is happening. Do not think that Allah does not care. He does. He is just waiting to show them how He is far greater than all of their rockets, bombs, rifles. He’s giving them time to show their “strength” so that He can then show them how they are nothing, absolutely nothing compared to Him. Allah will recompense all that you’re going through. Have patience, victory is coming.

“But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.”

Surah Al-Baqarah [2:216] Al-Qur'an al-Kareem

“They will wear the skins of lambs over hearts of wolves.”

There will come upon the people a time when their hearts will be derelict of the Qur’an; they will find neither sweetness nor pleasure by it.

If they fall short of doing what they have been commanded to do, they will say: Allah is most forgiving, merciful (He will forgive us), and if they do what they have been forbidden from doing, they will say: we will be forgiven, we haven’t committed any shirk with Allah.

Their affairs will all be based on [false] hope, having no truth and sincerity with it. They will wear the skins of lambs over hearts of wolves. The best of them in his religion will be someone who compromises.

Imam Aḥmad, Al-Zuhd 1741.

يابني، حملت الصخر والحديد فلم احمل اثقل من الدين، واكلت الطيبات وعانقت الحسان فلم اصب ألذ من العافية وذقت المرارات فلم اذق امرمن الحاجة الى الناس.

لقمان الحكيم لابنه
“My son, i carried stones and steel but nothing was heavier than a carried Debt. Ive eaten the best and hugged the beautiful but nothing was sweeter than good health. Ive had my downs and dealt with bitterness but nothing was more bitter than asking for a handout from people”

Luqman was a freed African Slave that god bestowed great wisdom on him. He has his own Chapter in the Quran were Allah describes his great wisdom.

@oliviahmagazine On purifying the heart:
Medical studies have proved that your feelings are what generate your thoughts, and in turn your thoughts determine your behaviour and perception. The condition of your heart determines the status of your feelings, it truly is the source of all reason: “So have they not traveled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason and ears by which to hear? For indeed, it is not eyes that are blinded but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts.“Quran | 22:46
