Divine Wisdom: The passage “Exhort one another to the truth and exhort one another to patience.” Surah Al-Asr – QN103:3, reminds those who, because they think too highly of themselves, tend to get easily offended when someone corrects them that, as the wise saying goes, ‘Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket and to one who listens, valid criticism is like a gold earring’, to always be calm to listen to words of wisdom and advice to be a better person.
In other words, when looked at from the right perspective, every experience in life is like passing through a school and every acquaintance, a potential teacher.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Life owes us nothing except an opportunity to learn and grow;
2) We need people in our lives who are willing to help us get from where are, to where we need to get to; and
3) The greatest indictment against not knowing is a failure, on our part, to learn from past experiences;
Teach you, to observe boundaries in every interaction, respect others, listen before you speak, and seize every opportunity to learn! TGIF
Pray with me: O Allah! Aid me and do not aid against me, and grant me victory and do not grant victory over me, plan for me and do not plan against me, guide me and facilitate guidance for me, grant me victory over those who transgress against me. Amin!
