    Dress Of Righteousness

    “Righteousness is good character, and sin is whatever bothers you and you do not want people to know.” (Saheeh Muslim) “Righteousness is not that you turn your faces to the east and the west [in prayer].  But righteous is the one who believes in God, the Last Day, the...

    Wisdom

    I believe we already have wisdom within us. There is no need to 'seek' it. Just look within you.

    Rubble

    2010..   It was supposed to be a good year. A year of growth. Breaking free from the weights I've been stuck under for so long. And I guess it is. Somewhat. I have been doing everything I can this year to find some wisdom. Some kind of understanding of life and what...

    Perfection?

    I have never completed anything in my life, because to complete something is to make it perfect. For if it is not perfect, there is still work to be done. So my goal in life used to be perfection, but now it is completion. I want to live a complete life, and I want to...

    Wisdom

    But use wisdom in all things... Sometimes it is better to concede defeat and retreat. Allow yourself to lose the battle in order to win the war. So sometimes I will let people get away with stuff. Not because I am unaware, but because I want to see if they learn, change, grow...

    I don't believe we ever stop learning.

    Just when you think you've learned it all, bam! Theres so much we don't know. There's so much more we have to learn. There's so much we can improve on.

    Only the fool seeks not wisdom, only the fool. Not to be confused with intelligence. I know wise people who can't do math. Intelligence is what you know, wisdom is how well you use what you know. Ideally a brilliant person should have both. Anyhow, I love the pursuit...

    You just don’t become a leader in one year.

    You’re prepped for it. When you’re at your lowest—but you got that faith—that gives you motivation. And when you have that motivation, that’s what makes you a leader..

    Death is not our greatest fear.

    .our greatest fear, is being ourselves.. Our greatest fear..is that people won't accept us for who we really are..so we disguise ourselves with the various masks society offers. We blend..and reject who we really are..to make other people happy
