Gratitude: Securing Your Blessings

What secures them (Blessings) is gratitude (shukr), based on three supports: inward recognition of the blessing; outward mention and thanks for it; and its use in a way that pleases the One to whom it truly belongs and who truly bestows it.

Ibn al-Qayyim

Resisting Sins & Evil

Stand firm against evil thoughts, for if you fail to do so, they will become ideas. If you do not, they will become desires, so fight against them.  If you do not, they will become a form of determination and intention.  If you do not resist, they will become actions, and if you do not follow them up with their opposite, they will become habits that will be hard to quit.

Ibn al-Qayyim

Treatment for the Hardness of the Heart

In the heart there is hardness which can only be softened by remembrance of Allah, may He be exalted. So the slave must treat the hardness of his heart with the remembrance of Allah, may He be exalted.

Ibn al-Qayyim
