  • Don't be Sad


  • Don't aspire to fame, or else you will be taxed with stress and worries

     

    By seeking to be the center of attention and by trying to please others, you lose both peace and stability in your life.

     

    (That home of the Hereafter [i.e. Paradise], We shall assign to those who rebel not against the truth with pride and oppression in the land nor do mischief by committing crimes.)   (Qur'an 28: 83)

     

    A poet said:

    "Whoever is satisfied in following and not leading, brings serenity to his self, And spends his nights peacefully. Verily, when the wind blows strong and violently, lt only tosses about the high part of the tree."

     

    (They stand with laziness and to be seen of men.)  (Qur'an 4: 142)

     

    (And those who love to be praised for what they have not done…)     (Qur'an 3: 188)

     

     

    (And he not like those who come out of their homes boastfully and to be seen of men…)    (Qur'an 8: 47)

     

    A poet said:

    "Transparent is the gown of the one who does deeds for show, Even if he wraps it around himself he remains naked."
