Quote 5/4/15

“People who love to emphasise the flaws in things are the kind of people who are the first to forget that they themselves have mistakes. That’s the first sign of arrogance – that you’re obsessed with the mistakes of others” –

Nouman Ali Khan.

We often wonder why God gives and takes, constricts and expands. What we forget is that human beings understand things by their opposites. Without dark, we can’t see light. Without hardship, we wouldn’t experience ease. Without the existence of deprivation and loss, we couldn’t grasp the need for gratitude or the virtue of patience. And without separation, we wouldn’t taste the sweetness of reunion.

Glory be to the one who gives– even when He (God) takes”
