I dreamt of missiles, falling from behind erected walls. Gray and weak like pebbles, causing no harm. But suddenly they came down stronger, like hail of a winter storm. Like blue tears, splashing on yellow walls, changing green. Like rejuvenated life. Like the colors of hope. Resist. Resist. You will remain and exist.

A beautiful gesture from Lebanon - names of Palestinians killed by Israel in the last two weeks were hung on huge banners in Raouché, Beirut during a demonstration against the latest Zionist assault on Gaza, July 22, 2014. Protesters also threw flowers into the sea. Over 600 people have been killed (as of the morning of July 23, 2014), at least 25% of whom were children.

Why do we think Imam Ali (as) is a perfect human being?
Because he felt society’s pain, and his ‘I’ had become ‘we’. His personality attracted all others. He was not an individual separated from others. He was a limb or an organ of a whole body. He himself said that a pain in one part of society, as in a body, made itself felt in the other parts, one of which was himself…
….[Imam Ali] describes his own life and says that he felt other people’s pain more than his own, and their pain prevented him from feeling his own. His words show that he was a truly learned and wise sage. Yet the reason why we honor him so deeply is not only because of his wide knowledge, but because he was human.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep.
When our Prophet (s) was asked how man could enjoy the favors and good grace of proximity to and mercy of Allah, he quoted Prophet Musa’s (as) supplication:
“Oh My God, I seek proximity to You,” Allah said: Proximity to Me is for him who stays awake on Laylatul Qadr
“Oh My God, I am in need of Your Mercy,” He said: My Mercy is for him who shows mercy to the poor on Laylatul Qadr
“Oh My God, I am in need of the passport to cross the bridge,” He said: that is for him who give alms on Laylatul Qadr
“Oh My God, I am in need of the trees in Paradise and their fruits,” He said: that is for him who seeks forgiveness on Laylatul Qadr
“Oh My God, I seek deliverance from fire,” He said: that is for him who remembers Allah on Laylatul Qadr
“Oh My God, I seek Your good pleasure,” He said: that is for him who says a two rakat prayer on Laylatul Qadr
