Monthly Inspiration

“When sickness comes your way, receive it with the hand of patience, and stay calm until the remedy arrives. Then, when the remedy does come, receive it with the hand of gratitude. If you behave like this, you will cope with this present life.”

– Shaykh Abdur Qadir al-Jilani

“O young man! Submit to Him in what is decreed by Him, then stay with Him after that. This business [amr] needs a foundation, then a superstructure, and constant maintenance at every moment of night and day.”

– Shaykh Abdur Qadir al-Jilani

“Do not lose hope in adversity and complain that God singled you out for punishment, remitting others guilty of worse sins. Your present state could very well be His intent to elevate your spiritual station; or He could just be testing your faith. Everyday that you persevere, you grow closer to perfection. Thus, your present despair may be the beginning of an infinite blessing.” ~ Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani
