  • Precious...!

    Lord Chesterfield was born in London in 1694 and diied there in 1773. His letters, addressed to his son, which were later published, described the act of success.

    In one letter for instance, he writes: 'I recommend you to take care of the minutes for the hours will take care of themselves.'
    That is to say,that if you can save your minutes, the hours will themselves be saved. Taking care of the parts is just like taking care of the whole. This is because, obviously, the whole is made out of parts.Most people tend to neglect the parts in favour of the whole.This mentality ultimately results in failure at some later stage.

    Never waste a moment of your available time. By taking advantage of your moments, you can be the possessor of your months and years. Wasting minutes will cause you to lose your months if not years. If you are wasting daily, just five minutes of your hour, this will amount to wasting two hours in every 24 hours. This will eventually come to 60 hours a month, 720 hours in a year. This is how the majority of people have been wasting most of their available time. A man, whose lifespan is 80, hardly makes full use of 40 years of his life.

    This is your greatest asset. Be careful regarding saving it. All great successes ultimately boil down to an accumulation of small successes. Once you are ready to achieve a small success, a big success will itself come your way. here is a practical example of how this apparently small piece of advice can have great results:
    Maulana Lutfullah, born 1802 in Dharager, India, was an ordinary tutor. He had not received any of his education in an English school even for a single day, yet Smith Aldara and Co. London published his autobiography in 1857. It was titled; 'Autobiography of Lutfullah, A Muhammadan Gentleman.'

    This book included a forward by Mr. East Weck who praised the excellence of the English written by Maulana Lutfullah, and he expressed his amazement at how an Indian could write such a comprehensive and thorough book in a foreign language.

    How did Maulana become capable of writing a book which was not only published in London, but which was held praiseworthy for its language by the English publisher?

    The secret is expressed in the saying, 'Little by little becomes great.' Maulana Lutfullah learnt English through his own efforts. He used to teach Hindi, Persian and Marathi languages to the English employees of the East India company.
    The number of his students is estimated at a 100. It was this contact with the English employees that made him feel interested in learning the English language. He began studying English privately. By working hard continuously for 8 years, he managed to gain a full command of the English language.

    He has written in his books that during those eight years, not even a single night passed without having committed to memory ten words of the English language, and without having thoroughly learnt a few pages from Dr Gil Christ's grammar. Ten words appear to be of no significance, but multiplied over eight years, this step can turn a man into a foreign language writer, capable of claiming appreciation from native speakers who are masters of the language!

    P.S. Maulana Lutfullah learnt 29, 200 words in eight years (3650 words every year).
    The enforcement of Muslim Brotherhood is the greatest social ideal of Islam. On it was based the Prophet's (SAW) sermon on his last pilgrimage, and Islam cannot be completely realized until this ideal is achieved. '
