TRUST IS GOLDEN

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Principles of Life

With just a few hundred rupees capital, a man from Delhi started a business. He used to buy scraps of cloth which he would sell from door to door. When his business had grown somewhat, he obtained permission to sit on the pavement in front of a shop and sell his merchandise there.

THINKING OF THE CONSEQUENCES

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Principles of Life

A man came before Prophet Mohammad and asked him for some advice. “Will you heed the advice?” the Prophet asked him. The man said that he would. The Prophet said to him: “When you decide on some action, think of its consequences. If they are good, go ahead with it: and if they are bad, refrain from it.” (Al-Zuhd wa al-Raqā’iq by Ibn al-Mubārak, Hadith No. 41)
