“Truly in the heart there is a void that cannot be removed except with the company of Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala. And in it there is a sadness that cannot be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that cannot be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him. And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness.”—[Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya] (via hopelessnights)
“Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates.
At the first gate, ask yourself, ‘Is it true?’
At the second ask, ‘Is it necessary?’
At the third gate ask ‘Is it kind?’”—Sufi saying (via thekittygirl)
