Have Regard for Every Muslim inasmuch as he is Muslim So do good and do not be concerned about whether the one for whom you do it to is worthy of it. Embrace every praiseworthy quality inasmuch as it is part of noble character by which you are adorned. Be a place for it because God honours it and praises it. So seek virtues for themselves; avoid usual vices for themselves. Put others first, and do not stop with their praise or blame. You should advance the most entitled, and then next entitled if you wish to be with the wise who take on the courtesy of God which He has prescribed for the believers on the tongues of the Messengers, peace be upon them. Know that “a believer in respect of another believer is like a building whose parts support one another.” There are only believers in the world, because there is nothing in the world but that it prostrates to God, except for some human beings and jinn. -Muhyi din Ibn al-'Arabi, The Mysteries of Bearing Witness

As for him who fears to stand before his Lord and restrains the ego its desires, the Garden is shelter.
(The Snatchers:40)
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The Fire is surrounded by all kinds of desires and passions, while Paradise is surrounded by all kinds of disliked, undesirable things."
Whoever does good at night is rewarded during the day and whoever does good during the day is rewarded at night. Whoever is sincere in abandoning a desire is saved from catering to it. God is too noble to punish a heart that has abandoned a desire for His sake.
(Abu Sulayman ad-Darani)
Beware of your ego, and trust not its mischief;
The ego is worse than seventy devils.
(Arabic Poem)

I seek God's forgiveness, and do not claim that my intention in producing this Blog is confined to good religious purposes; how may I do so when I am aware of the hidden desires, egotistic passions, and worldly wishes that I harbour? I do not claim innocence for myself; the ego is indeed an inciter to evil, save when my Lord shows mercy; my Lord is indeed Forgiving, Merciful. O God! I seek Your protection against my committing idolatry [shirk] knowingly, and Your forgiveness for that of which I am not aware! I ask God to make me and all other believers benefit from this Blog and to render my production of it purely for the sake of His Noble Countenance.
