“We’ve been friends since we were 13.”
“What’s the most fun you’ve ever had together?”
“Oh, we don’t know…”
“Well, what’s the hardest you’ve ever laughed together?”
“Now you listen here! I want you to write down these questions you’re asking us, pull them out when you’re 85 years old, and see if you can answer them yourself!”
Whoever directs you to this world has
cheated you; whoever directs you to deeds
has exhausted you; but whoever directs you
to Allah has truly counseled you.
— Abu al-Hasan al-Shadhili (may Allah be pleased with him)
- remember death.
- your happyness is temporary.
- pain is temporary.
- hardship is temporary.
- guilt, sadness, excitement, joy, fear, love, honour is temporary.
- good deeds continue on.
- bad deeds continue on.
- bad thoughts have an effect on the soul.
- good thoughts have an effect on the soul.
