If we truly understood our connection with Allah,
our hearts would break and we would say:
Oh Allah I have divorced this life and I am all Yours.
Imam Sufyan ath-Thawri (via theconsciousmuslim)
While I understand the message behind this quote, I can’t help but think that if we achieved this we’d actually be going against Allah’s command for us. The command that we do everything in moderation because our bodies and our families also have rights over us, so constant worship or fasting is not at all encouraged, because anything done in excess loses its essence and therefore becomes burdensome rather than beneficial.
