"A man asked ash-Shafi’i, “O Abu ‘Abdillah! Which is better for a person, to gain power or to be afflicted?” So ash-Shafi’i said, “One will not gain power until he is afflicted. For indeed Allah afflicted Nuh, Ibrahim, Musa, ‘Isa and Muhammad, may the salawat of Allah and salam be upon them all. So when they were patient, they gained power, so let not anyone think at all that he is free from pain.”"
"Never be too proud to apologise."
Surely, in paradise is a river of milk,
For Ali, Hussain and Hasan.
Whosoever loves them enters paradise without experiencing any sadness.
Love for the people of the Prophetic Household is compulsory upon us all
And because of this love, we do not fear tribulations.
