Abu’l-Fayd al-Misri The Kashf al-Mahjub

Abu’l-Fayd al-Misri, "The Kashf al-Mahjub"

When Moses conversed with God, he asked, "Lord, where shall I seek You?"
God answered, "Among the brokenhearted."
Moses continued, "But, Lord, no heart could be more despairing than mine."
And God replied, "Then I am where you are."

The Life of Muhammad

Ibn Ishaq, "The Life of Muhammad"
God now said to Muhammad: 'I gave my past messengers many wise words to convey to the people; and these words were written down to guide future generations. Each of these messengers knew that I would send a further messenger to confirm the message I had given them. Do you accept this? Will you take up this burden?'
Muhammad answered: 'I accept.'

Kitab al-Muluki

Razi: Kitab al-Muluki
Grief clouds thought and reason, and harms both the soul and the body; so you should repel it, or reduce it as much as possible. This can be done in two ways: you can strive to prevent grief from occurring; and you can banish grief when it does occur.

From the prayer book "Al-Hizbul-A'zam"

Humbly do I implore You, keep me in Your divine grace, and deprive me not of peace. Save me from sudden misfortunes; deliver me and sustain me. May I never displease You, my Lord.

The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as narrated by Abd'Allah bin Amr
A true Muslim is the one who does not defame or abuse others; but the truly righteous becomes a refuge for humankind, their lives and their properties.
