The Disputations

Twenty six

1. Praise means nothing.

2. True sincerity is that one performs an action for Allah, not for anything or anyone and not for recognition even if it works out or does not. That's sincerity.

3. People praise you because of what they suppose is in you but you should blame yourself for what you know is in you.
4. Your weakness is your reliance on anything other than Allah

5. The person who walks into the king’s court with a high head should be careful, he will get his head chopped off. As for the person who enters the kings court in submission, in humility will remain in the safety and pleasure of the king.

6. When you rely on something other than Allah get ready for what you have to be taken away.

7. Rely on Allah in ease and not just in duress.
8. Some people are tried by having something and others are tried by not having it...
9. May Allah bring the lion who murders to justice.
10. Film making is the art of convincing you that something is happening when actually it is not. Its an art of deception that manipulates and stimulates your emotions into feeling something that does not actually exist. None of it is real but yet we are obsessed about them.
11. Being judgmental is displaying the evil of yourself and not of others.

12. “Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.”
― John F. Kennedy

13. Every rose has thorns.

14. Sacrifice for the person on the spiritual path is continuous. Not just once a lifetime but every day, every hour, every minute.

15. Allah sees you all the time; how could you commit sins?.

16. What could’ve been was never meant to be.

17. The ears and the eyes are self cleaning but do you keep them clean by using them in the right manner? The gratitude of them is to use them for acts of worship. So be careful that you do not dirty them up.

18. Part of the believers training in the world is that everything has causes. As when they are in paradise there are no causes. When you wish for something you can have it.

19. When you make an intention to be with someone, you are with them.

20. Sometimes I wonder about those people we feel sorry for now because of the suffering they go through. Will they feel sorry for us of the day of judgement when they see what rewards are awaiting them and what rewards are awaiting us?
