Things I Wish They'd Told Me Earlier

Don't compare yourself with anyone; the first person to do this was Iblis and look what happened to him.

Don't look for, or expect, praise or pity from anyone.

Don't judge anyone for anything; if you have to judge someone, judge your own soul.

Don't try to convince anyone of anything: state your case and move on.

Don't think or talk about things more than is necessary.

Don't talk about the good you have done. Be like a soldier: do your duty and then forget it. "Take the straight path ahead as you were ordered" (Fastaqim kama umirt).

Don't expect anything from life...except for the fact that until your last breath you will be tested and tempted by the devil.
