Oxygen for the Drama

2014 was the worst year in our lives but it taught us a necessary lesson. No matter who you are or what you have, only Allah remains. Leave the drama. Leave the competition over place or title or possessions. Look for the love of the Sheikh, the Prophet and Allah.

Don’t Give Fatwa

You must sail your boat according to the wind. The wind is not at your command, it is independent of you. The spiritual way tells you how to sail with the wind. Life is not supposed to be easy but with the tests come the rewards. Without the sadness how would we know the joy?
