Sun breaking the clouds

Bismillah.

Your smile brightens the lives of all who see it. To someone who has seen a dozen people frown, scowl or turn their faces away, your smile is like the sun breaking the clouds.
- Dale Carnegie

Allah bless this man especially for the variety of salawat/durood he has taught us, which I have learned via Muwasala.org and memorized. Alhamdulillah.

Rabbi zidni ilma war zuqni fahma

***

"Whenever one of the pious scholars went on a journey he would tell his companions to take with them a large number of books. They said: There will not be time to read all these books."

"He replied: Let us be sincere with Allah and then we will be rewarded for the intention to read these books even if we do not read all of them."

From: Habib Umar's commentary on Miftah al-Sarair (Key of the Inner Secrets) authored by his ancestor Shaykh Abu Bakar bin Salim.

May we make similar intention for the new books on the shelf which we are yet to read.
