“Love is a force unto itself, sayyidi. For love, people consider the unthinkable…and often achieve the impossible. I would not sneer at its power.”
Kita punya ‘hak untuk membalas’ melakukan hal yang buruk terhadap mereka yang telah memperlakukan kita dengan buruk.. tapi bagi orang orang yang ingin selalu dekat dengan Allah, mereka tak terlalu peduli dengan 'hak untuk membalas’, mereka lebih memilih kebaikan agar bisa terjamin kelangsungan hubungan dekatnya dengan Allah.
‘We should give our children different duties in the house and teach them that serving their parents and siblings is a means of pleasing Allah. Then it is no longer a chore which they wish to finish as quickly as possible but rather something they enjoy doing and compete with each other over. ’

‘When you call someone to Allah you must realise that your role is merely to convey the message on behalf of the Prophet ﷺ . Guidance is in Allah’s hands. Do not think that it is you who is guiding that person.

Know that He cares for those who turn to Him; relieves difficulties for them; is there for them in every circumstance, condition and change; and He shelters them in His Mercy, Grace, Pardon and Forgiveness.
