The teachings of Imam AL-Ghazzali (rh)
“No matter who we are or where we live,
deep inside we all feel incomplete.
It’s like we have lost something and need to get it back.
Just what that something is, most of us never find out.
And of those who do, even fewer manage to go out and look for it.”
"He who seeks worldly wealth cannot dispense with commerce and profit; he who seeks that of the future life cannot dispense with obedience and service; he who seeks the Master cannot avoid tests and suffering. He who seeks true knowledge is vowed to shame and exile. He who seeks comfort from this knowledge will remain suffering, but he who suffers in patience will attain comfort.
“Your task is not to seek for
love, but merely to seek and
find all the barriers within
yourself that you have built
That which God said to the rose,
and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty,
He said to my heart,
and made it a hundred times more beautiful.
