  • Life is not guaranteed at all...
    But death is absolutely guaranteed upon all, yet we still prepare for life more than death.

      Once Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) said to Al-Ahnaf bin Qais (Radi Allahu Anhu):

      “Oh Ahnaf, the more one laughs, the less dignity will he possess.
      Whoever jokes (excessively) is a person who will be taken lightly.
      Whoever does something frequently will known by that thing.
      Whoever speaks often, errs often; the more often one errs, the less modesty he will possess; Whomever has a low level of modesty will also have a low level of piety; and when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies.”
      When advising another man, Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) said,


      “Do not speak about that which does not concern you.
      Know your enemy and be wary of your friend, except for the trustworthy one. And no one is trustworthy, except for the person who fears Allah.
      Do not walk with the evildoer, lest he teaches you some of his evil; and do not reveal your secrets to him.
      And when you consult others in your affairs, consult only those who fear Allah ‘Azza wa jall.”

        • Sins have many side-effects.
          One of them is that they steal knowledge from you.

            • Sometimes you want something really badly and you can't have it no matter how hard you try, it might be because Allah knows it's not good for you.
              Accept your Qadar and trust His Plan because Allah knows best.

                      • When a calamity brings us closer to the Almighty, it is a gift.

                              • When you see someone who seems to have a perfect life, understand that they too are tested by Allah, but their tests are probably private.

                                There are many people who go through tests that nobody knows about besides them and Allah.

                                So don't become jealous of anybody's life as they may be going through tests that you wouldn't be able to pass.
