Peace, one and all…

In today’s reading, the Imam explores gentleness, poverty and thankfulness.

My son, the essence of knowledge is gentleness, and its bane is harshness.  The treasure of faith is in patience with trials. Chastity is the adornment of poverty and thankfulness is the adornment of wealth.

Ask olsun! May love increase.
