You bestowed strength on me, whenever I stumbled,
You held me,
whenever I was sick,
You cured me,
whenever I called You,
You answered me.
Be happy with me as You have made me happy."
— Imam Ali (as), supplicating to Allah [swt]

"There’s that beautiful rose
in the garden.
The gardener used to water it everyday.
And the rose kept on growing and glowing.
The gardner started getting busy, busy, and busy.
Till the leaves of the rose started getting dry,
"The House of God within you is your heart. Keep it clean—and clear of all vileness."
— Habib Ali Jafri
