Pearl of Wisdom

I visited the Prophet (SAWA) when Ubayy ibn Ka'b was with him. The Prophet greeted me, saying, 'Welcome O Aba 'Abdillah, O the beauty of the heavens and the earths.' So Ubayy said, 'How is it possible, O Messenger of Allah, for anyone other than you to be the beauty of the heavens and the earths?' He said, ?O Ubayy I swear by Him who has rightfully sent me down as a messenger, certainly [the worth of] Husayn b. 'Ali is greater in the heavens than on the earth. And verily it is written [about him] on the right side of Allah's Throne: lamp of guidance, ark of salvation, an Imam, not weak, a [source of] dignity and pride, a landmark and a great treasure.'

Imam Hussain ibn Ali al-Shahid [as]
Uyun Akbbar al-Rida (AS), v. 1, p. 59, no. 29

In the Holy Qur'an

When my servants ask you about Me, (tell them that) I am indeed most near. I answer the supplicant's call when he calls Me. So let them respond to Me, and let them have faith in Me, so that they may fare rightly (2:186)

In the Traditions

My God,

the uninterrupted flow of Thy graciousness
hast distracted me from thanking Thee!
The flood of Thy bounty has rendered me incapable
of counting Thy praises!

The succession of Thy kind acts has diverted me
from mentioning Thee in laudation!

The continuous rush of Thy benefits has thwarted me
from spreading the news of Thy gently favours!

This is the station of him who
confesses to the lavishness of favours,
meets them with shortcomings,
and witnesses to his own disregard and negligence.

Thy favours are many -
my understanding falls short of grasping them,
not to speak of exhausting them!

So how can i achieve thanksgiving?

For my thanking Thee requires thanksgiving.

Whenever i say, 'To Thee belongs praise!',
it becomes thereby incumbent upon me to say,
'To Thee belongs praise!'
