I am not taking up arms in order to make merry, or be ecstatic over what I possess. I am not making mischief, nor exercising oppression. But I am ready to fight for the sole goal of seeking reform of the ummah of my grandfather, the Prophet of Allah (saw). I want to enjoin good and forbid evil and guide the affairs of the people as my grandfather, and my father, Ali Bin Abi Talib (as), were doing."
Imam Hussain Ibn Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as)(Source: realfakescientist, via trusimplicity)
"Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the near neighbor, the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side, the traveler, and those whom your right hands possess. Indeed, Allah does not like those who are self-deluding and boastful."
- Surah An-Nisa, 36
