Reality of Time and Wisdom.....

1. Much may be done with those little shreds and patches of time which everyday produces, and which most people throw away.

2. Minutes! Count them by sensation, and not by calendars and each moment is a day.

3. Until we value ourself; we won't value time, until we value time; we will not do anything with it.

4. Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.

5. To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom, and he who increases his riches increases his cares, but a contented mind is a treasure hidden.  read more »

Eid Mubarak!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah Dear readers,

A dear student of mine sent me this beautiful poem as well as her summation of what we had attempted to learn in our Character Building and Soul Searching Class.

Anything that is good is from Allah, anything deficient is from my own self. It just reminds me of what my own teacher says : "The teacher is simply the traffic cop making sure the traffic is going in the right direction -- into the presence of Allah."  read more »
