A path for the living

A man known as Hatim alAsam [died 237 Hijra / ~851 CE] from Balkh said:
“If you want to walk our path then you must take on four attributes of death:
1. White death
2. Black death
3. Red death and
4. Green death
As to the white death, it is hunger;
The black death is the ability to withstand pain caused by people;
The red death is the ability to oppose one’s unlawlful desires;
And the green death is to ‘wear patched materials one on top of the other’.

The reach of a healthy heart

“They all worship You out of fear from Fire,
And they see being saved a great fortune;
Or to dwell in Gardens and be privileged,
With castles and drinks from fountains;
I seek no share in Gardens or Fire,
I seek no replacement to my Beloved!”
Rabia Al-Adawiya [Born 100 Hijra / 717 CE and died 135 Hijra / 796 CE]

Take care

“The heart of Man is a gift from God.
Take care not to neglect it.”
Amenemope, 1000BC Egypt

“Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh, which, if it be whole, all the body is whole, and which, if it is diseased, all of the body is diseased. Truly, it is the heart.”
Muhammad, peace be upon him, 600CE Medina
