When Imam Ahmed Bin Hanbal’s wife passed away he said: “Wallahi I lived with her for 40 years and we didnt argue once.” He was asked how? He said: “Whenever she gets upset and tries to argue, I stay quiet. And whenever I’m upset and try to argue, she stays quiet.”


I won’t say that “you broke me”. You’re not that powerful, I’m not that weak. You are not more powerful than my Lord who has promised me protection. You didn’t break me, you made me sad. And sadness passes. And my Lord is eternal.
