By Wael Abdelgawad, Hanan Bilal, Imam Zaid Shakir and Others


The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of

something, it beautifies it. Whenever it is taken from something, it leaves it tarnished.” –

Imam Bukhari‟s Book of Muslim Manners.


Abdullah bin Al-Haarith said, “I didn‟t see anyone who smiled more than the Messenger of

Allah (s).” – (At-Tirmithee, 3641).


“Allah. It all starts with Him – the universe, humanity, and our own conception – and it all

comes back to Him in the end. There‟s no victory without Him, no progress, no peace.

Strengthen your relationship with Him in the easy times, and you will find Him beside you in the

hard times.” – Wael Abdelgawad


“Allah (God) is an exponential word.” – Imam Zaid Shakir


“Keep your head up, forge forward fee-sabeel-illah, keep praying, learning, thinking, following

your dreams, and loving the people in your life. It‟s all worth it, it all matters and makes a

difference. Every single thing you do is meaningful, even when you don‟t see it. You are my

brothers, my sisters, my heroes.” – Wael Abdelgawad


“When you‟re out of ideas, that‟s when faith comes in. Let Allah show you the way.” – Wael



“No one should ever be depressed by his or her worldly situation as long as he or she is walking

on the path leading to Paradise. Attaining Paradise is the great objective of this life, and the

person who gains it is victorious, regardless of what he achieved in the world.” – Imam Zaid

Allah has a beautiful plan

for every woman and man.

Trust Allah and pray

and He will light the way.

- Wael Abdelgawad


“When I am feeling low and downtrodden I just find a quiet place and sit alone with my favorite

book (the Quran)! When I turn each of its miraculous pages my heart begins to feel lighter and

the world around me brighter! The love, warmth and security of each word sets in and it is in

these very moments that I know for sure in my heart how much Allah really loves me!

Alhamdulillah! Subhanallah! Allahu Akbar!” – Asmaa Deanna-Dee


“„Oh, but what‟s the use of trying to be a good Muslim when I end up sinning again and

again?‟… Well, what‟s the use of bathing when you get dirty again and again? Salat (prayer) is a

purifier. Though you sin again and again, keep returning to Allah for purification. Fasting is a

purifier, Zakat is a purifier, Hajj is a purifier… We can use the same analogy for hope and

motivation. We have to keep finding them again and again. That‟s the nature of life.” – Wael



“Try to become an embodiment of compassion and mercy in your daily life. Do not wait for a

situation to occur that will call out these virtues in you. Rather, seek out opportunities where you

can manifest them along with all of the other prophetic virtues. Do not live your life passively

waiting to be used, roused or stimulated into action by events. Live an active life wherein you

become the one who is initiating acts of goodness and kindness in all that you do. Be an

embodiment of the truth you represent. Let your words and comportment convey the dignity of

the believer to all that you meet.” – Imam Zaid Shakir


“Wash your heart every morning with salat, then warm it up with dhikr. Approach life with hope

and faith. Every day do your best, Allah will do the rest.” – Wael Abdelgawad
