“Oh people! Fear Allaah, for the fear of Allaah is a treasure. The smartest of the people is the one who checks on himself and strives for that which comes after death, strives to acquire some of the light of Allaah for his grave, and fears lest Allaah raise him blind when he had sight (in this world).”
— Uthman ibn Affan (radiAllaahu anhu) [Sahih At Tawtheeq 107]
When I look at society it makes me miss you more and more and confirms why I love you. They say that you can’t love a person you have never met, but I love you more than anyone I have ever met. Inshallah I will meet you in Jannah, Rahim, Nabi Al- kareem, my Prophet (All praises and blessings be upon him).
We have narrowed the definition of success to culture, to society, to our own closed minds. Success isn’t merely getting into medical school or law school or making six digits. The most successful of people aren’t the ones that are intellectually or materially advances- the most successful of people are those that invest and spend their time for both the dunya and the akhirah. The most successful people are those that acknowledge their creator and push past every test to attain Jannah.
