We believe that a true and comprehensive understanding of Islam would not be possible without careful recognition of the Prophetic Tradition and the Prophet's Household. And Allah is the Source of Strength.

The Two Categories of People

" Every person in this world wants to live their life to it's fullest. There are two categories. They who get the opportunity to do so, the lucky ones, and they, who are not that lucky.

The lucky ones can be further divided into two categories. The grateful and the ungrateful. Similarly, the unlucky ones can also be divided into two categories, the patient and the greedy.

In truth, all are ruined except the lucky ones. The rich are not lucky, neither are the ones who live their lives to the fullest.

Lucky are the grateful (of those who got a chance) and the patient (of those who did not).

They are lucky because God has bestowed upon them his favor, his own remembrance. Do not equate luxuries of life with the favor and mercy of the creator. Those whose hearts truly and always remember their sustainer in good and bad times are the ones touched with divine mercy.

Everything will perish one day, except he who is remembered by the pious people (Allah), and they (the pious), who are remembered by him who says "Be" and it becomes."
