الأشياء المنكسرة ليس لها قيمة
إلا القلب المنكسر أمام الله،
فما أثمنهBroken things have no value,
except a broken heart in front of Allah.
Oh how valuable it is.
‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab would write to his governors during his caliphate and say: “The most important of your affairs in my view is prayer; whoever prays regularly has protected his faith, but whoever neglects it, is bound to be more negligent in other issues of faith.
“Whoever prays Fajr is under the protection of Allah.” - Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)
“After a while you learn
The subtle difference between
Holding a hand and chaining a soul
And you learn
That love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t always mean security.
And you begin to learn
That kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes ahead
With the grace of woman,
Not the grief of a child
And you learn
To build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is
Too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down
After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns
If you get too much
So you plant your own garden
And decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting for someone
To bring you flowers.”

Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.

“Mohammed bin Munadhir said: I was walking with Al Khalil bin Ahmed and my sandal broke. So he took off his sandals, I asked him, ‘What are you doing?’ He replied, ‘I’m keeping you company’.”
