Got it? Good. 


She covers herself to serve Him. She covers herself to serve Him, not him. To serve him, is to cage her heart. To serve Him, is to free it.

He who does not know his own value will perish.
Imam Ali (pbuh) [Nahj al-Balagha, Saying 149] (via sange-saboor)

Struggle against your lower desires, overcome your anger, oppose your bad habits, purify your self, perfect your intellect, and bring to completion the reward that is with your Lord.
Amirul Mou’mineen Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.)

Every walk of life regards him to be of that walk, as he possessed all the attributes and all perfections. Some of the Imam’s qualities, which may not be so much obvious, can be known from his supplications and duas: The dua of Komayl is an amazing, a quite amazing dua. Some expressions of this dua can hardly be expected from an ordinary human being: “O my God, Master, Guardian and Lord, suppose I could endure Your torment, how would I endure being separated from You?” Who can compose such an expression? Who has such a deep love for Allah’s beauty that Hell does not frighten him, but he is afraid of being degraded from his position, if sent to Hell, to such a degree depriving him from loving Allah? He moans out about his separation from Allah, the Exalted. It is a love which is kindled in the innermost of his heart forever, and all his actions stemmed from this love for Allah.
Imam Khomeini, Imam Ali (as) in the Views of Imam Khomeini (ra)


dua abu hamza thumali, another great ramadan dua from Imam zain al abideen (as). alhamdulillah for the love of ahlul bayt, and the unmatched duas of ahlul bayt.
