Illusions

Salamualaykum,

‎Social service, political activism, a respectable profession; even religious affiliation are not enough if you smother the simplest dignities, respect, and reverence due to others and yourself, from time to time. Making a name for yourself, acquiring reputable skills, attaining a formidable education, a gateway to wealth; are all illusions of being ahead of the pack if you neglect to cleanse your intentions, restrain your speech, guard your vision, and heighten your perception. Intuitive, discerning knowledge comes with critical reflection and refinement of behavior. – Imam Zaid Shakir (hafidhahullah)

-Fi Amanillah-
