Reflect upon all things but reflect not on God’s Essence

Seeking knowledge is an ordinance obligatory upon every Muslim

Generosity is a characteristic of the people of Paradise

Verily God doth not take away knowledge from the hands of Divine servants, but taketh it by taking away the learned, so that when no learned people remain, the ignorant will be placed at the head of affairs.
