“Everyone besides Allah (SWT) will disappoint your expectations…So long as you place any hopes in creation, you are necessarily going to be disappointed.”

~Br. Nou’man Ali Khan


إِنَّهُ لاَ يَيْأَسُ مِن رَّوْحِ اللهِّ إِلاَّ الْقَوْمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

“…certainly no one despairs of Allah’s Mercy, except those who have no faith (i.e. the disbelievers).”

{Surat Yusuf 12:87}




وَإِذا سَأَلَكَ عِبادى عَنّى فَإِنّى قَريبٌ ۖ أُجيبُ دَعوَةَ الدّاعِ إِذا دَعانِ ۖ فَليَستَجيبوا لى وَليُؤمِنوا بى لَعَلَّهُم يَرشُدونَ

يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا لا يَسخَر قَومٌ مِن قَومٍ عَسىٰ أَن يَكونوا خَيرًا مِنهُم وَلا نِساءٌ مِن نِساءٍ عَسىٰ أَن يَكُنَّ خَيرًا مِنهُنَّ ۖ وَلا تَلمِزوا أَنفُسَكُم وَلا تَنابَزوا بِالأَلقٰبِ ۖ بِئسَ الِاسمُ الفُسوقُ بَعدَ الإيمٰنِ ۚ وَمَن لَم يَتُب فَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الظّٰلِمونَ

O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is …

وَاستَعينوا بِالصَّبرِ وَالصَّلوٰةِ ۚ وَإِنَّها لَكَبيرَةٌ إِلّا عَلَى الخٰشِعينَ

الَّذينَ يَظُنّونَ أَنَّهُم مُلٰقوا رَبِّهِم وَأَنَّهُم إِلَيهِ رٰجِعونَ

And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult

except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ]. Who are certain that they will

meet their Lord and that they will return to Him.

{Surat al-Baqarah 2:45-46}

Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent downafter We have made it clear for the People in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allah and cursed by the cursers.
