2. Islam is not just a religion, Islam is everything.

3. When you mention your companion's faults, remember your own faults.

6. Many things in life will catch your eye, but few will catch your heart, pursue those.

7. If you are good, try to be better.

8. Only someone who is sincere recognizes what showing off is.

9. Knowledge is not merely the narrating of texts. Rather knowledge is fear of Allah.
