What can my enemies do to me? – A Quote

“What can my enemies do to me? I have in my breast both my heaven and my garden. If I travel they are with me, never leaving me. Imprisonment for me is a chance to be alone with my Lord. To be killed is martyrdom and to be exiled from my land is a spiritual journey.’ Ibn Taymiyyah  

Disclaimer: I strongly disagree with Ibn Taymiyyah’s views on Shia-ism, Non-Muslims, the visiting of Shrines and many other matters. However, the above quote is nonetheless beautiful. (Thank you Nadia).
