Muhammad ibn Imran at-Taymee once said: “There is nothing harder on me to maintain than المروءة “chivalry”. “And what is chivalry”? He was asked. He replied: “Chivalry is when you never do anything in secret that you are ashamed of in public.”
Now that is really hard.
“Ya Allah! Forgive us our sins, the public and secret ones.”
Go easy on yourself, for the outcome of all affairs is determined by God’s decree. If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee – Umar bin al Khattab
