Qur’an 24:35 - Ali Keeler.
"Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly [white] star lit from [the oil of] a blessed olive tree, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He wills. And Allah presents examples for the people, and Allah is Knowing of all things."
Pouring to Drink
One cannot pour a drink when one has no drink (Name, ‘Ism).
One cannot pour a drink when one has no cup (Heart, Qalb).
One cannot pour a drink without making a movement (Invocation, Dhikr).
One cannot pour a drink unless one’s cup be empty (Poverty, Faqr)

"The words “slave” and “rights” are contradictory terms. That God gives us any rights, at all, is amongst the strongest proof of His grace."
"If I ever purchase a plot of land in the United States, I will research which Native American tribe originally lived on that land and request permission from their tribal counsel."
