The days of life pass away like clouds, so do good while you are alive.

Opportunity is swift of flight but slow to return.

The superiority of amassing knowledge over wealth is that the Pharaoh’s vast wealth caused him to say, “Truly I’m deserving of your worship.” Whereas the Prophet’s (peace and blessings be upon him) vast knowledge caused him to say, “Truly we have not worshipped You as You deserve to be worshipped.

“Oh my son! This world is like an ocean in which many a creation had drowned. Make, therefore, the fear of God your boat in this ocean; your faith the main hull of the boat; reliance on God as its sails; reason as its rower; knowledge as its captain; and patience as its anchor.”

It is narrated from ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (radhiallahu `anhu) that he said in his Khutbah

‘O slaves of Allah! Be cautious of death; be cautious of death, for there is no escaping it. If you stand up to it, it will take you and if you flee from it then it will only catch up with you.

will be the Torment of Allah.” [al-Hajj: 2]
