Pearls of Wisdom 386

1. Act in accordance with what you know for what you do not know to be unveiled to you. [Imam al Ghazali]

2. Your knowledge should improve your heart and purge your ego. [Imam al Ghazali]

3. Whenever you interact with people, deal with them as you would wish yourself to be dealt with them, for a Believer's faith is incomplete until he wants for other people what he wants for himself. [Imam al Ghazali]

4. Not a day or night passes for any person without his death during it being a possibility [Imam al Ghazali]

5. Occupy yourself with inspecting your heart, discerning the features of your personality, giving worldly attachments a wide berth, purging yourself of ugly traits, and you would occupy yourself in adoring God the Exalted, worshipping Him and acquiring good qualities. [Imam al Ghazali]

6. If one is not satisfied with what suffices him, no abundance will ever enrich him. [Omar radi Allah anhu]

7. This world is an abode of tests. The object of life is not to avoid or deny its tests and trials, rather to successfully pass them. [Imam Zaid Shakir]

8. Many think that tests from God are always signs of His wrath. As Muslims, we believe that the trials afflicting us can be signs of His love. [Imam Zaid Shakir]

10. How bad can any suffering in this world be if it opens the door to unimaginable, eternal good in the life hereafter. [Imam Zaid Shakir]
