Pearls of Wisdom....159

1.When the inward is good the outward is also inevitably so, for the outward always follows the inward, whether for good or evil. [Imam al Haddad]

2. Know that the hearing and sight are two open doors; whatever enters through them reaches the heart. [Imam al Haddad]

3. The sincere person is the one who hides his good deeds just like he hides his evil deeds. [Yaqub al Ma'foof]

4. Do not rely on vain hopes, because vain hopes are the assets of idiots and fools. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

5. If you cannot be of benefit to the people, then do not harm them; if you cannot make them happy, then do not make them sorrowful; if you cannot praise them, then do not disparage them. [Yahya ibn Mu'adh]

6. Wisdom is the name of the trait of remembering experiences and making use of them. The best experience is the one that gives the best warning and advice. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

7. Take advantage of the opportunities before they turn their backs upon you; the worst form of folly is to waste the opportunities of this life and to lose salvation. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

8. Treat with consideration and kindness those over whom you have power and authority. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

9. Keep a complete control over your temper and anger, because I have never found anything more beneficial at the end and more productive of good results than such control. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

10. Be mild, pleasant, and lenient with him who is harsh, gross, and strict with you; gradually he will turn to your way of behavior. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
