Do not let your love be obsessive and do not let your hatred be destructive. When you love, do not go to a level of obsession as a child does with the things he loves, and when you hate, do not hate in such way that you want your opponent to be destroyed and doomed.
Betapa banyak orang yang mengubah dirinya menjadi lebih baik karena ingin dipuji manusia, mengharapkan simpatik dari manusia. Ketika alasan itu hilang, sudah pasti mereka akan kembali seperti dulu lagi. Sebab, apapun yang dibangun bukan karena Allah, akan bersifat sementara
Hidup di dunia tidaklah kekal, sayang sekali kalau kita berubah menjadi lebih baik hanya karena hal-hal fana. Namun apabila niat kita benar karena Pencipta, insyaAllah akan bertahan, meski kita tak luput dari kesalahan.
Sekarang berkacalah pada diri, kita ini berubah karena siapa?
Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala gives you with every new day a new chance to be better than yesterday. Learn from your mistakes, ask Allah (swt) for forgiveness of your sins, show sincere repentance, fulfill the obligations Allah (swt) has imposed on you as a Muslim. SubhanAllah, it is such a privilege to be a Muslim and yet we take it for granted. It is such a privilege to open our eyes anew every day and be healthy, and yet today we live just as we did yesterday. As long as you breathe, it’s not late. Turn to Allah. You have one more chance to right the wrongs of yesterday.
Cherish your parents while you still can. Do the little things for them that will make them smile, just like they did when you were young. Appreciate their existence, and if you are ever disobedient to them, repent to Allah, seek His forgiveness, and rush to your parents to make amends by obeying and caring for them. That is, after all, where the goodness lies. Love your parents. Respect your parents. Don't wait until you bury them to realize how much of a blessing they are.
