poeticislam: “What can my enemies do to me? I have in my breast both my heaven and my garden. If I travel they travel 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” [Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah] Taken by Steve McCurry
