“Hearts melt when the Beloved of Allah is mentioned.”
Habib Kadhim al-Saqqaf

“I desired to praise the Chosen One and was hindered
By my own inability to grasp the extent of his glory.

How can one such as I measure an ocean, when the ocean is vast?
And how can one such as I count the stones and the stars?

If all of my limbs were to become tongues, even then –
Even then I could not begin to praise him as I desired.

And if all of creation gathered together in an attempt
To praise him, even then they would stint in his due.

I have altogether ceased trying – awestruck, clinging to courtesy,
Tempered by timidity, glorifying his most exalted rank.

Indeed, sometimes silence holds within it the essence of eloquence,
And often speech merely fodder for the faultfinder.”
Ibn Juzayy al-Kalbi

Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri
“Amongst the friends of Allah (Awliya), the Qur'an is considered as a love letter from Allah, which inevitably is read continuously to remind them of their Beloved.”

“The Prophet's character was termed tremendous because his concern was for God alone.”
Imam Junayd al-Baghdadi

يوسف النبهاني
“I am the slave of the Master of Prophets
And my fealty to him has no beginning.

I am a slave of his slave, and of his slave’s slave,
And so forth endlessly,

For I do not cease to approach the door
Of his good pleasure among the beginners.

I proclaim among people the teaching of his high attributes,
And sing his praises among the poets.

Perhaps he shall tell me: “You are a noted friend
Of mine, a truly excellent beautifier of my tribute.”

Yes, I would sacrifice my soul for the dust of his sanctuary.
His favor should be that he accept my sacrifice.

He has triumphed who ascribes himself to him!
- Not that he needs such following,

For he is not in need of creation at all,
While they all need him without exception.

He belongs to Allah alone, Whose purified servant he is,
As his attributes and names have made manifest;

And every single favor in creation comes from Allah
To him, and from him to everything else.”
Yusuf Nabhani

Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri
“In a nation where the disbelievers sought Heaven from the idols, the Messenger of Allah [Prophet Muhammad] taught them that Heaven can be found through a simple smile.”
Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri

“If I were to receive a pair of the blessed prophetic sandals to place on my head, then I shall consider myself no less than a fully crowned king.”

“The strongest man is the one who, when he gets angry and his face reddens and his hackles rise, is able to defeat his anger.
(Reported by Imaam Ahmad, 5/367, and classified as hasan in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3859)”
Prophet Muhammad pbuh

Frithjof Schuon
“If Mohammed had been a false prophet. there is no reason why Christ should not have spoken of him as he spoke of Antichrist but if Mohammed is a true Prophet the passages referring to the Paraclete must inevitably concern him - not exclusively but eminently - for it is inconceivable that Christ, when speaking of the future, should have passed over in silence a manifestation of such magnitude. The same reasoning excludes a priori the possibility that Christ. when making his predictions, intended to include Mohammed under the general denomination of'' false prophets", for in the history of our era Mohammed is in no sense a typical example among others of the same kind, but on the contrary, a unique and incomparable apparition(1). If he had been one of the false prophets announced by Christ he would have been followed by others and there would exist in our day a multitude of false religions subsequent to Christ and comparable in importance and extension to Islam. The spirituality to be found within Islam from its origins up to our days is an incontestable fact. and "by their fruits ye shall know them." Moreover, it will be recalled that the Prophet in his doctrine has testified to the second coming of Christ without attributing to himself any glory. unless it be that of being the last Prophet of the cycle and history proves that he spoke the truth, no comparable manifestation having followed after him.”
Frithjof Schuon, Transcendent Unity of Religions

“Unable and crippled I am
As I gaze into the vastness
The vastness that harbors your praise
And glories of the best of creation...

If I tried to spell..
A drop of ink from your love
Ma quill would burn in shame
for your love match no words...ya rasoolullah!”

“Über des Propheten Gebein ist jedes Staubkorn
ein Pfeiler von Licht,
Aufrecht von der Kuppel des Grabes
Bis hin zu der Kuppel des Himmels ...
Und jene Ehrfurcht, die
wie Deine Macht die Stirnen sich neigen läßt
zeichnet im Horizont einen höheren Horizont
von Händen und Lippen
der wogt "Im Namen Gottes",
Dein ist das Lob
Dein ist der Dank
Dein ist der Ruhm
Dein ist das Reich
Der Du die Wohltat gibst, o Du der alles besitzt!
Hier sind wir zu Deinem Dienst, Du der keine Gefährten hat
Hier sind wir zu Deinem Dienst, Du der keine Gefährten hat.

Keine Glut mehr in unseren Knochen, noch Asche,
Kein Schnee, keine Schwärze;
Nicht Unglauben mehr, und Anbetung nicht.
Erniedrigung ward Gewohnheit, und Schwäche ohne Licht ...
O Herr,
Du lehrtest uns Liebe,
Lehr uns den Willen, der Mauern bricht!”
Al-Faituri

Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

“The jealous and the foolish ones thought that they won after Prophet Muhammad [S.A.W.] had gone from Mecca to Medina! In history, they are only known as the evil conspirators but Hazrat Muhammad [S.A.W.] is the last prophet and the greatest human being!”

Sanai
“I asked the wind: "Why do you serve Solomon?"
It said: "Because Ahmad's name is engraved on his seal!"

باد را گفتم: سلیمان را چرا خدمت کنی
گفت: از آن کش نام احمد نقش بر خاتم بود”
Sanai

“As the Tawrat [Torah], the Zabur [The Psalms of David], the Injil [Gospel] and the Quran are divine books, the Veda [written in about 1200 B.C.] also has divine elements in it. For example, just like the Bible [in the book of Isaiah, chapter 29, verse 12], there is prophesy in the Veda [in Atharvaveda, book 20, Hymn 127, verses 1-13] about the arrival of the final Messenger of God, Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.)!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

“prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was the most beautiful and perfect human being, the best of mankind”
Sami Abouzid

Kabir Helminski
“The Prophet Muhammad said, „Die before you die.“ We are being told to know the after-death state now, while we are alive. The mystics say that just as the embryo fears being born from the womb into this world, we fear our next birth. We fear being born from the womb of this material existence. The embryo can‘t imagine there is anything better than the warmth, comfort, and easy life it experiences in the womb. When it uncomfortably emerges into the expanded world outside the womb, it finds beautiful colors, fragrances, sensory experiences, and relationships. As human beings, we may similarly fear emerging into the expansive world that is beyond the boundaries of our egoistic existence. It‘s a goal of this spiritual path to be living in two worlds at once. By doing so, we can bring heaven to earth. (p. 33)”
Kabir Helminski, In the House of Remembering: The Living Tradition of Sufi Teaching

Sanai
“No better leaders guiding you on the Path of Allah
Than the Qur'an and the sacred Traditions.
Only Muhammad's hand and heart are able
To take care of the secrets' treasury (the human heart).
If your heart is filled by Ahmad's light,
Be assured that you are saved from the Fire.

قاید و سایق صراط‌الله
به ز قرآن مدان و به ز اخبار
جز به دست و دل محمد نیست
حل و عقد خزانهٔ اسرار
چون دلت بر ز نور احمد بود
به یقین دان که ایمنی از نار”
Sanai
