Knowing Allah, His Greatness and His Grace

Knowing Allah, His Greatness and His Grace


The Holy Prophet [s] said: “O’ people! Verily, there is no prophet
after me, nor any Ummah after you (Muslims). So, take care to worship
your Lord, perform your five ritual prayers, fast in the appointed
month (Ramadan), make pilgrimage to the House of your Lord (Mecca),
give the alms of your wealth in order to purify your souls thereby,
and obey the Holders of Authority, so that you enter the Paradise of
your Lord.”

Khisal-I-Saduq, p. 152

Imam Amir-ul-Mu’mineen Ali [a] said: “Having the Greatness of the
Creator in your mind would make you realize the insignificance of the
creatures in your view.”

Nahjul-Balagha, Statement 129

Imam Amir-ul-Mu’mineen Ali [a] said: ” Blessed is he who sincerely
devotes the entirety of his actions, knowledge, love, hatred,
receiving, relinquishing, speech, silence, deeds, and statements
absolutely to Allah.”

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 77, p. 289

Imam Sadiq [a] said: “The heart is the sanctuary of Allah, therefore,
do not settle therein anything but Allah (The sacred place of the
heart belongs to and Him alone. Therefore, keep the love of the world
out of it.)

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 70, p. 25

Imam Sadiq [a] said: “Our true followers are those who, when they are
alone, remember Allah abundantly.” (That is, they avoid committing
vices in private where there is no barrier for them to commit sin by
the mere remembrance of Allah.)

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 93, p. 162

Imam Baqir [a] said: “By Allah, He, the Exalted, expects of people
but two traits: that they confess for Him the blessings in order that
He increases His bounties for them; and that they make confessions
about their evil actions and then He forgives those sins for them.”

Al-Kafi, vol. 2, p. 426

Imam Husayn ibn Ali [a] said: “Verily, Allah, the Exalted, has not
created human beings except for recognizing Him and worshipping Him
as (the consequence of) knowing Him; and when they worship Him they
would lack the need of adoring any human being (or things) other than
Him because of that worship.”

Safinat-ul-Bihar, vol. 2, p. 180

The fourth Imam, Ali ibn Husayn [a] said: “There is no destruction
(Hell) for a believer having three qualities:

Confessing that there is no god besides Allah, the One Who has no
partner; the intercession of the Messenger of Allah and the vastness
of the Grace of Allah.

Safinat-ul-Bihar, p. 517

    Jisne tujhe paaya, usne kya khoya aur jisne tujhe khoya usne kya paaya.”
    May Allah (swt) accept your best services in His way and increase our Marefat of His and guide us towards His Etaat and also increase our Marefat of His Hujjat (atfs)

    Shuaib Husain.
