[I Bargained With Life For A Penny,And Life Would Pay No More, However I Begged At EveningWhen I Counted My Scanty Store;For Life Is Just An Employer,He Gives You What You Ask,But Once You Have Set The Wages,Why, You Must Bear The Task.I Worked For A Menial's Hire,Only To Learn, Dismayed,That Any Wage I Had Asked Of Life,Life Would Have Paid.]

Abu Hamid Al Ghazali Quotes

"A fourth group of people climbs from ignorance and pretends to possess the rational faculty. They suppose that the highest felicity is the expansion of honor and fame, the spread of reputation, a multiplicity of followers, and the influence of the command that is obeyed. Hence, you see that their only concern is eye service and cultivation of the things upon which observers cast their glance. One of them may go hungry in his house and suffer harm so that he can spend his wealth on clothes with which to adorn himself so that no one will look at him with the eye of contempt when he goes out. The types of these people are beyond count. All of them are veiled from Allah by the sheer darkness that is their own dark souls."
