Saddi ( سعدي ) . Iranian poet

بنی آدم اعضای یکدیگرند                              که در آفرينش ز یک گوهرند

          In creation of one essence and soul

چو عضوى به درد آورد روزگار،                            دگر عضوها را نماند قرار

 

             If one member is afflicted with pain

            The name of human you cannot retain           

 

An amazing Hadith

•🔹●⭕️﷽⭕️●🔹•

Eight advises of Imam Reza peace be with him.

☑️ Bestowal and bounty is something that there is no (asking) “ifs” or (to) “wait” before granting, and no obligation afterward.

☑️ Bestowal granted before being asked is a great magnanimity

☑️ Heal the sins with repentance and leave space in between (sinning and repentance) for excuses

☑️ Making fun (of others) ruins the prestige.

☑️ Silence increases man’s prestige and status.

☑️ He who has been asked (to do something) is free until he promises, and is a slave until he fulfills that promise.

☑️ Opportunity passes by rapidly, and returns slowly with difficulty

☑️ Blessings until the time they’re present are unknown, but when gone are known.

A beautiful Hadith

ـ رسولُ اللهِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): مَن كانَ في طَلَبِ العِلمِ كانَتِ الجَنَّةُ في طَلَبِهِ .

‪The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘He who goes out to seek knowledge is himself sought after by Paradise.’[Kanz al-`Ummal, no. 28842]

A beautiful awakening message from Jesus ( peace be upon him )

Jesus Christ is quoted to have said: ” s/he who is not born for the second time will not enter the kingdom of heavens”.

By second birth Jesus refers to the beginning of voluntary self-building.

Explanation: the first birth of man is the human natural birth from a mother and a father.

By this birth man embarks upon the path of evolutionary determinism and continues his natural movement via a mass of natural laws.

By this birth and movement man neither enters the realm of values nor he ever acquires the ability to acquaint himself with the transparent layers and noble aspects and principles of humanness and nature.

The entrance of human individuals into the mentioned realm and acquisition of this acquaintance begins when man starts to build himself. This is what we call voluntary birth and by this, Jesus takes form. This is the very inception of the season of entering the kingdom of heavens and beholding divine beauty and majesty.

Since then, the truth of justice reveals its sacred face to man and avoiding carnal pleasures for the sake of pursuing an intelligible life makes its real taste perceptible … Yes, by entering this stage man becomes qualified to behold the kingdom of the heavens and discover majesties beneath its appearances.
