Fame is based on what you get in life, greatness is based on what you give in life.

If you don’t write goals in life you will never achieve them. You have to write them down.

Advice to the MSA: host a course about how to develop/improve your memory.

AlHasan AlBasri said you must make tawbah from 2 things: too much food and too much sleep.

Ibn Rajab said that there are three stages of knowledge. When you enter the first stage, you become arrogant, in the second stage you become humble. In the final and third stage you will acknowledge the fact that you are ignorant.

Ibn alQayyim said he lost count of how many people in Damascus that they tried to turn their face towards the qiblah in their grave, turned the opposite way.

Leaders don’t explain, they energize and persuade. Leaders don’t just inform, they inspire. Leaders sell while you tell.

Re: »TORCH BEARERS ITTIHAAD« - GEMs

One of the things this class stresses is the fact that everything isn't just black and white. Just because you're religious, doesn't make you perfect. You're human. You have faults and make mistakes. And so do/did our respected scholars. We need to learn to respect them even with this, and learn from both their successes and their shortcomings. Instead of expecting them to be like the Angels, we have to realize that they are only human.

Also, I love that Shaykh covered female scholars and emphasized on their role in Islam and Society and the father-daughter relationship. I wish more people could take this class.
The quote I want to share is by Fatimah Samarqandiyah "Fathers Invest in your daughters."
