  • Be careful of laughing at others for perhaps Allah might forgive their ignorance and not forgive you arrogance.
  • Be grateful with what you have - by looking at those who have less than you.
  • What hurts is not the criticism of our enemies, but rather it is the silence of our friends that truly hurts.
  • I don’t care how poor someone thinks he is – if he has a loving family, he is rich beyond measure.
  • The fact that Allah has blessed you to witness another Ramadan is proof that Allah wants to see you in His VIP list to enter Jannah.
  • Falling in love isn’t haram, it’s what you do with that love that makes it haram or halal.
  • Do what you can, with what you have, where you are, Allah demands no more.
  • We cannot change the past to rewrite a better beginning - But we can work for the future and strive for a better ending.
  • When you willingly give up your own happiness for someone else, that is the sign of true love.
  • Learn from the mistakes of others and avoid being one whose mistakes are used as lessons by others.
  • Don’t judge others who disagree with your views too harshly. You might just find yourself holding those same views a few years or decades down the line.
