an offer

A'udhu billah hi minassyaitan nir rajeem,
Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem,
La hawla wala quwwata illa billah hil aliyyil azeem

Only those who are at peace can make peace.
Only those who have love can give love.
If you want mercy be merciful.
Mercy is spread by those who are mercy full.

Hadrat Abdul Qadir al-Gaylani q.s. says, "My son, first educate yourself, put yourself on the straight path, then to the others. You know that you yourself, are in need, how can you satisfy the needs of others. Your eyes can see only the distance one step away, while you are trying to lead the blind.

How many times have we heard these kinds of sayings(i.e:those conveying the same message).We constantly say it is so "cliche","oh I've heard that like a thousand times" etc,etc.But maybe the actual question is "have I ever ACTUALLY understood the meaning?".Maybe what we need is not something new,but a fresh perspective.Is it not the window that determines how much sunshine that gets to our room.And remember the lost is our own. Realise that the sun does not stop shining even though we close our eyes.
May God grant us the decency to open our eyes and see.

For: He is the Light of the heavens and the earth
"Allahu nurussamaa waa ti wal 'ard "

and: He leads whomever He wills
" yahdillahu linuurihi mai yashaa' " An-Nur verse 35

"O people who take pleasure in a life that will vanish, falling in love with a fading shadow is sheer stupidity." - Ibn al-Qayyim

What can an abject beggar offer?

-Peace be to you-
