I just read this amazing hadith over at Marzuki's blog:

“O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from incapacity, from sloth, from cowardice, from miserliness, decrepitude and from torment of the grave. O Allah, grant to my soul the sense of righteousness and purify it, for Thou art the Best Purifier thereof. Thou art the Protecting friend thereof, and Guardian thereof. O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from the knowledge which does not benefit, from the heart that does not entertain the fear (of Allah), from the soul that does not feel contented and the supplication that is not responded.”
Source: Sahih Muslim

 Tears came to my eyes. Masha'Allah.

I guess we're even? haha.

It's indeed beautiful. When I first read it, I realized that I fear for my grades and future more than I fear Him. I began to feel frustrated when hardwork didnt result in understanding and good grades. I wasnt contented. I was losing myself chasing paper.

It was a timely gentle reminder for me. Glad it moved u too.
