"Take advantage of five things before five others occur:
Your youth before you grow old.
Your health before you become sick.
Your money before you become poor.
Your leisure before you become busy.
Your life before you die."


(Muhammad, Narrated by 'Amr bin Maymun al-'Awdi, Book of At-Tirmidhi)



Hello ATS, may Peace be upon us all.
This is a quote (hadith) attributed to Muhammad ibn Abdullah. I contains wisdom for much personal reflection. I just wanted to share it with you all.

Dear Sahabi,

May blessings rain on you and your family, peace to your mind, love to your heart, and strength to your arm.

"Love works so in me that whether things go well or badly, love turns all to one sweetness. . ." (Commentary Applied to Spiritual Things -- St. John of the Cross)

Hello brother. What a beautiful quote. I am currently reading through the Holy Quran. Although I am a Christian, this is a beautiful book and Islam is quite a beautiful religion when not taken to fundamentalist extremes, just as Christianity. What specific books / verses of the Quran would you recommend to a Christian brother? Peace be with you !

Good afternoon N3v3rmor3

Often we fail to appreciate, be grateful, or thankful for our blessings until they are gone. "You don't know what you got 'till it's gone."

May you be strengthened with your lacking. Peace be with you.

Peace be unto you Iason321. It's good that you are researching outside of your own religion. Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave, and allow truth to shine no matter what the source.

I am a Muslim as much as I am a Christian, a Hindu, a Buddhist, a Luciferian, an Agnostic, a Gnostic, and an Atheist.

A few of my favorite verses from the Qur'an are;

"So when I have made him (Adam or Mankind) complete and breathed into him of My spirit, fall down making obeisance to him." Qur'an 15:29

"So when I have made him (Adam or Mankind) complete and breathed into him of My spirit, fall down submitting to him." Qur'an 38:72

"Say He is Allah, One. Allah, the Eternal, the Absolute. He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is none comparable to Him." Qur'an 112



Find truth and wisdom wherever you can, but beware of the thorns hidden amongst the roses.
