Advice for Life...

Post by Amatur Rahmaan on Fri Apr 24, 2009 11:21 am

Hazrat Ali ibn Abu Talib (radhiallahu anhu) once said to his son Imam Hasan (radhiallahu anhu), "My son, learn four things from me and through them you will learn four more. If you keep them in mind your actions will not bring any harm to you:

The greatest wealth is Wisdom; the greatest poverty is stupidity; the worst unsociableness is that of vanity and self-glorification and the best nobility of descent exhibits itself in politeness and in refinement of manner.

"The next four things, my son, are:
Do not make friendship with a fool because when he will try to do you good he will do you harm;
Do not make a miser your friend because he will run away from you at the time of your dire need;
Do not be friendly with a vicious and wicked person because he will sell you and your friendship at the cheapest price
and do not befriend of a liar because like a mirage he will make you visualize very near the things which lie at a great distance and will make you see at the great distance the things which are near to you."


I absolutely loved this and had to share it.......hope it inspires you all and brings tears of realization to you and it did me!

Once upon a time there was this girl who had four boyfriends.



She loved the 4th boyfriend the most and adorned him with rich robes and treated him to the finest of delicacies. She gave him nothing but the best.



She also loved the 3rd boyfriend very much and was always showing him off to neighboring kingdoms. However, she feared that one day he would leave her for another.



She also loved her 2nd boyfriend. He was her confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with her. Whenever this girl faced a problem, she could confide in him, and he would help her get through the difficult times.



The girl's 1st boyfriend was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining her wealth and kingdom. However, she did not love the first boyfriend. Although he loved her deeply, she hardly took notice of him!







One day, the girl fell ill and she knew her time was short. She thought of her luxurious life and wondered, I now have four boyfriends with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone.'



Thus, she asked the 4th boyfriend, 'I loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?'



'No way!', replied the 4th boyfriend, and he walked away without another word.







His answer cut like a sharp knife right into her heart.



The sad girl then asked the 3rd boyfriend, 'I loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?'



'No!', replied the 3rd boyfriend. 'Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to marry someone else!'



Her heart sank and turned cold.



She then asked the 2nd boyfriend, 'I have always turned to you for help and you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?'



'I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!', replied the 2nd boyfriend. 'At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave.'



His answer struck her like a bolt of lightning, and the girl was

devastated.



Then a voice called out: 'I'll go with you. I'll follow you no matter where you go.'



The girl looked up, and there was her first boyfriend. He was very skinny as he suffered from malnutrition and neglect.



Greatly grieved, the girl said, 'I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!'



In truth, you have 4 boyfriends in your lives:



Your 4th boyfriend is your body. No matter how much time and effort you lavish in making it look good, it will leave you when you die.



Your 3rd boyfriend is your possessions, status and wealth. When you die, it will all go to others.



Your 2nd boyfriend is your family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for you, the furthest they can stay by you is up to the grave.



And your 1st boyfriend is your Soul. Often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world.



However, your Soul is the only thing that will follow you where ever you go. Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of you that will follow you to the throne of God and continue with you throughout Eternity.





Thought for the day: Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the perfect position to pray.
