“Recipe for success: Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.” - William A. Ward
“When you become consistent with your rituals and new productive habits, you will be amazed by the ways Allah subḥānahu wa ta’āla (glorified and exalted be He) gives you new insights and realisations and helps you change and overcome your challenges as He subḥānahu wa ta’āla (glorified and exalted be He) promises in the Qur’an!”

إذا أردت أن تفهم إنساناً فانظر إليه في لحظة اختيار حر، و حينئذ ستفاجأ تماماً: فقد ترى القديس يزني وقد ترى العاهرة تصلي. و قد ترى الطبيب يشرب السم. و قد تفاجأ بصديقك يطعنك و بعدوك ينقذك. و قد ترى الخادم سيداً في أفعاله و السيد أحقر من أحقر خادم في أعماله. و قد ترى ملوكاً يرتشون و صعاليك يتصدقون.
If you want to really understand a human being, look at what he does in a moment of absolutely free choice-making, and then you shall be utterly surprised; you may see a saint fornicating, and a prostitute praying; you may see a doctor drinking poison; you will be surprised by your friend stabbing you, and an enemy saving your life; you may see a servant who is a lord in his deeds, and a lord who is viler in his deeds than the most despised servant for his chores; you may see kings taking bribes, and wretches giving out charity."
Mustafa Mahmud (1921-2009) - an Egyptian Scientist & a prolific author who had some doubts before converting back to Islam.. best known for his book “A Conversation with my Atheist Friend”
