A few years back, a student of knowledge gave me this great piece of advice. Thought I’d share because it’s something I reflect on quite often, and for me, it’s a refreshing reminder.
“Sincerity is the key to all good. Focusing the heart on Allah, and realizing that He alone is the source of all the happiness in this life and the next. Sometimes we think that this or that thing will be the “thing” that will bring joy to our hearts, then once we acquire it, the search continues. When will we realize that it is Allah that we are really looking for!?”
