God is the Light of the heavens and earth. His Light is like this:
there is a niche, and in it a lamp, the lamp inside a glass, a glass like a glittering star, fuelled from a blessed olive tree from neither east nor west, whose oil almost gives light even when no fire touches it- light upon light- God guides whoever He will to his Light;
God draws such comparisons for people;
God has full knowledge of everything-
shining out in houses of worship.
God has ordained that they be raised high and that His name be remembered in them, with men in them celebrating His glory morning and evening:
men who are not distracted, either by commerce or profit, from remembering God, keeping up the prayer, and paying the prescribed alms, fearing a day when hearts and eyes will turn over.
On the Day when their own tongues, hands, and feet will testify against them about what they have done-
On that Day, God will pay them their just due in full- and they will realise that God is the Truth that makes everything clear.
Let us live in the world like a lamp. We should burn ourselves but illuminate the way for others.
Everyone can live for themselves, its takes a real man to live for others
My Uncle (Taya - father's elder brother)
If you can help anyone in life, then do it.
Punjabi quote from my dad
We decried others for their defects, but when we saw our own defects, we realised no one had any defects.
Amazing is the affair of the believer, indeed all of his affair is good and this is for no one except the believer. If something of good befalls him, he is grateful and that is good for him. If something of harm befalls him, he is patient and that is good for him.
Saying of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Related by Muslim.
God questions a soul at the gates of heaven: You are the same as when you left! You were blessed by a life full of opportunity, so where are the bruises and scars left by your journey?
