Information regarding my Little Mermaid inspired work seen above:
Etrafımı saran uçurumlara düşmemem için, düşüncelerin oluşturduğu
bilinmezlik denizinde kaybolmamam için, nefsimin ve şeytanın gönlümü
esir almaması için, ellerimden tut Rabbim.
Geçici ve boş şeylerle yorulan kalbimi Sevginle doldur.
Her şeye Senin sevginle bakabilmeyi öğret.27.06.86
Evet,her şeyde bir birlik var. Birlik ise,biri gösterir. Mesela,dünyanın lambası olan güneş,birdir;öyle ise, dünyanın Maliki dahi birdir. Mesela,zemin yüzündeki zihayatların hizmetçileri olan hava,ateş,su birdir; öyle ise, onları istihdam eden ve bizlere musahhar eden dahi birdir.
( Üstadım Bediuzzaman Said Nursi - Yirminci Mektub )

So I was tagged by raneemwillshine to post my favorite ayah from the Quran. This was one of the first lines of the Quran that was revealed to the Prophet (SAW) and its so significant because its the first message of Islam. The first message of Islam wasn’t one of violence, judgement, or hate it was a high emphasis on the importance of education. This is extremely relevant today where education is not in high regard within the Muslim world, hell there’s Muslims out there burning books! AstaghfurAllah, once the Ummah returns back to true Islam that is when we truly return to our once upon a time glory.

How the Salaf were (and weren’t) when hearing the Quran and Dhikr
It was said to ‘Â`ishah (Allâh be pleased with her), “There are people who faint when they hear the Quran.” She said. “The Quran is nobler than to have people lose their minds from it. Rather, it [should be] as Allâh the Mighty and Sublime said:
"Those who fear their Lord tremble with fear by it, then their skins and hearts settle to the remembrance of Allah." (Sûrah Al-Zumar: 23)
Abû ‘Ubayd Al-Qâsim b. Sallâm, Fadâ`il Al-Qur`ân p214.
It is reported that ‘Abdullâh bin ‘Urwah bin Al-Zubayr said, “I asked my grandmother Asmâ` (bint Abî Bakr) (Allâh be pleased with her), ‘How were the Companions of Allâh’s Messenger (Allâh peace and praise be upon him) when they heard the Quran?’ She replied, ‘their eyes would shed tears and they would tremble (with fear), as Allâh described them (in the Quran).’ I said, ‘There are some people here who, when they hear the Quran, fall down unconscious,’ She said, ‘I seek refuge with Allâh from the accursed Shaytân.’”
Al-Bayhaqî, Shu’ab Al-Îmân 3:417; Ibn Al-Mubârak, Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqâ`iq 3:54 with a slightly variant wording.
It is also reported that Asmâ` was asked, “Did any of the Salaf used to faint out of the fear of Allâh?” She replied, “No, but they used to cry.”
