لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلَّا بِاللّهِ


What else can I say?
لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ اِلَّا بِاللّهِ
La hawla wala quwwata illa billah
There is neither might nor power except with Allah.

Only with His might, a gifted Chinese man, Haji Noor Deen could pen such holy kalima. Only with His might could his craft travel all the way from UK to Malaysia. Only with His might do hearts become fond of one another. 
Jazakillah Sister R for the precious gift!
How precious?
Prophet Muhammad s.a.w said the kalima is:
"a treasure from the treasures of Paradise."
(Sahih al-Bukhari & Sahih Muslim)

Isn't it amazing that we are not even there in Paradise yet but Allah the Almighty has already given us a treasure from Paradise? Subhanallah! And with that treasure we could achieve so much, not with our own might but with His. Glory be to Allah!

With His might, He manifests His beauty through His chosen servant like Haji Noor Deen, whose craft is subhanallah beautiful!

With His might, we know Him. Ariftu Rabbi bi Rabbi (I know my Lord by my Lord) so He grants gnosis (ma'rifah) to one like the venerable gnostic Shaykh Muhyiddin Ibn al-Arabi who said: "It was not I who wrote what I wrote."
La hawla wala quwwata illa billah.

Haji Noor Deen
