Random Quote: "One day my maternal uncle said to me, do you not remember God who created you? I replied, how shall I remember Him? He told me, when you change into your bedclothes, say three times in your heart without moving your tongue: God is with me, God watches over me, God is my witness … For years I did not cease to practise this, and I experienced a sweetness in my innermost being because of it." - Sahl Al-Tustari

As salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

I hope that you're well and that you iman is strong. I came across this today and thought I share it, insha'Allah:

Knowledge is Better than Money

Ali رضي الله عنه said:

Knowledge is better than money, since you have to protect money, while knowledge protects you. And money is depleted from spending, while knowledge grows when you spend it and knowledge makes rulings, while money is ruled over.

People who hoard money have died while they are still living, while the scholars live on through the ages. . .
their souls may have passed away, but their effects remain present in the hearts of people.

(جَامِعُ ْبَيَانِ الْعِلْم وَ فَضْله #٢٨٤ وَ إِسْنَادُهُ ضَعِيفٌ)

May Allah grant us all Tawfiq.  Ameen.
Ma'as salaama,
nuh ibn
