Imam Abdur Rahman al-Jauzi rahimahullah said:
“If you find a darkness in your heart after you sinned, know then that in your heart there is light, because of this light you felt the darkness.”
[Rowdathul Muhibeen, 2/112]
The Brain, Seattle WA by Olson Kundig Architects
The Brain is a 14,280 cubic-foot cinematic laboratory where the client, a filmmaker, can work out ideas. Physically, that neighborhood birthplace of invention, the garage, provides the conceptual model. The form is essentially a cast-in-place concrete box, intended to be a strong yet neutral background that provides complete flexibility to adapt the space at will. Inserted into the box along the north wall is a steel mezzanine. All interior structures are made using raw, hot-rolled steel sheets.
Abu Bakr As-Siddiq رضي الله عن used to say in his sermons:
"Where is the beauty and the handsome? Where are those who were delighted by their youth and good looks? Where are the kings who built cities and fenced it with walls? Where are the victorious in wars? They all perished and ended in the depths of dark graves! Hasten and hurry up [to do good deeds] but death is faster."
- Al-Zuhd by Imam Ahmad (2/18), Hilyah al-Awliya’ (1/34) and Sifat al-Safwah (1/261)
