“If we have forgotten our total dependency upon God, then there is nothing left for us but to try to depend upon other people’s attention to us, because without such attention we don’t even feel like human beings. Instead of paying attention to God, we become beggars for the attention of others, constantly trying to make them pity us or look up to us. But this is not true human relatedness, only mutual idolatry.”
Charles Upton

“If we know for certain that God sees all we do and all we are, we will not be tempted ask others to validate us by displaying our virtues, nor will we tempt others to judge us by displaying our sins. Only God can validate us; only God can judge.”
Charles Upton

“the word shari’ah literally means ‘a path that leads to water.’ Even the dire warnings that appear in the Qur‘an are essentially nothing but the protective words of a Friend who doesn’t want to see us lose our way and come to grief.”
Charles Upton, The Virtues of the Prophet: A Young Muslim's Guide to the Greater Jihad, the War Against the Passions
