"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

“Defeat is the soil upon which victory blooms”

Taken from an episode of something that I happened to bump across this afternoon while I was channel surfing. This was the only thing that stuck.....not even the name of the show......anyway I liked the quote. Explains a lot to me.....

The sweetest victories occur with the vivid memory of agonzing defeat.

Hey native

I was reading something and i came across your word. It exist (profundity)which you most certainly are ;)

returning to the actual article, is so true, after hardship follows ease, to know true relief you much experience pure sorrow, to know true happiness you must experience pure sadness and so forth.

Our deen prepares us for this state of affairs very well alhamulilah. A true profundity!

love you
