In reality, intelligent is the one who provides the capital of reliance (provision needed for one's journey to the hereafter) and good deeds from this mortal world for the eternal life of the hereafter, so that he attains a high rank of acceptance before Allah, the Exalted, and the limitless blessings of the Paradise."
"The Islamic intellectual tradition held that beauty is related to truth and virtue, and this fundamental principle gives beauty an existential dimension."
>>The saying of Prophet Muhammed "God is beautiful and He loves beauty," sums up an essential part of Islamic aesthetics: Beauty is a divine quality and it is manifested in everything that is beautiful. Given the deepening ugliness of the modern world in which we live, we need to remember what this means.
Have a blessed week!

The Pen Magazine
The Pen is an educational, cultural, biannual magazine which covers the Islamic faith, worship, the issues of the Islamic world, and the struggles towards the ittihad (unity) of Muslims.
Every print issue of The Pen covers and sheds light into the topics which are of great importance for the believers such as the existence and oneness of Allah, the proofs of the existence of Hereafter, the mission of prophethood, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his way of life (Sunnah), and the reasons behind the creation of man and the test of life. The Pen asks “Why” rather than “What” and “How” while explaining the issues of Islamic belief and pillars.
The Pen is inspired by the Risale-i Nur collection written by Imam Bediuzzaman Said Nursi who is one of the most effective scholars of the modern age, and addresses the minds, the hearts, and the souls of people in a convincing manner in his treatises.
On the other hand, The Pen also deals with the topics related to agonies, pains, and problems in the entire Islamic world. Especially, Muslims’ turning into a body made up of concordant parts is a lofty ideal for The Pen that it devotes its pages without limitation. For that reason, the articles analysing the problems before the unity of Muslims are published periodically in the magazine. The magazine welcomes new writers who want to write on these topics.
