Tolerating lesser evil

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Sunday Guardian | Oct 7, 2018

Umair ibn Habib ibn Hamasha, a companion of the Prophet, instructed his son, saying: “O my son, he who refuses to tolerate the lesser evil of a foolish person will have to tolerate the bigger evil of such a person.” (Al-Muʽjam al-Awsat, al-Tabarani)

The greatest news of all

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | September 23, 2018

What a mass of information there is clogging the atmosphere nowadays. Everyone has some message to convey to others. But in all this confusion, there is no one seeking to convey the message of eternal life; there is no one anxious to break the news of salvation and damna¬tion in the world to come.

How we grow in life

Maulana Wahiddudin Khan | Sunday Guardian | Sep. 9, 2018

Harry Emerson Fosdick has explained one fact of life in these words: “No steam or gas ever drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.”(Living Under Tension by Harry Emerson Fosdick)
