Pearls of Wisdom....172

1. Your time is your life, and your life is your capital, it is the basis of your transactions (with God), and the means to attain everlasting felicity, in the proximity of God the Exalted. [Imam al Ghazali]

2. The attentiveness of a servant is equal to his love for his Lord. Love is consequent upon knowledge, as much as one grows more knowledgeable of Him, so shall he love Him more and worship Him more abundantly. [Imam Abdullah Ibn Alawi al Haddad]

3. A scrupulous person is most worshipful of people because those who eat things that are absolutely lawful cease to tire from worship, and those who don't tire from worship are more worshipful than those who do. [Abdul Wahab al Sharani]

4. Renunciation is a means of traveling to Allah and reaching Him, for there is no spiritual traveling of the heart that is attached to anything other than the Beloved. [Ibn Ajiba]

5. Scrupulousness is restraining oneself from anything whose end result may be blame worthy. [Ibn Ajiba]

6. Get as close to Allah as you can, and realize that you do not get closer to Him by anything that is more beloved to Him than His own speech--------the Holy Qur'an. [Khabaab ibn Arat radi Allah anhu]

7. If your hearts become pure, you will never have enough of the words of your Lord. [Othman radi Allah anhu]

8. The one who knows that he is a slave of Allah and that he shall return to Him, knows that he is, in fact, to be detained. The one who knows that he is to be detained knows that he is going to be asked---------about every thing he does. [Fudayl ibn Iyaadh]

9. Do good for the remainder of your life and you will be forgiven for what you did in the past. However, if you do evil in what remains of your life, you will be held responsible for what you did in the past and in the future. [Fudayl ibn Iyaad]

10. This worldly life is a deceiving form of enjoyment if it diverts one from seeking the Hereafter. However, if it calls a person to seeking Allah's pleasure and seeking the Hereafter, then it is an excellent means. [Sa'eed ibn Jubair]
