Pearls of Wisdom 424

1. Your souls are precious and can only be equal to the price of Paradise,
therefore sell them only for that.

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

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

4. Learn silence as you have learned speech. Speech will guide you, and
silence will protect you.

5. Whoever desires Paradise proceeds towards goodness, whoever fears Hell
refrains from the impulses of passions.

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.

10. The root of good character is humility and the root of base character is
arrogance.
