Worthy Lives and Friendships (Imam Al-Ghazali)

Words of wisdom from Al-Ghazali, Islamic scholar turned Sufi mystic

“O my soul, thou hast only one life; no single moment that has passed can be recovered, for in the counsel of God the number of breaths allotted thee is fixed, and cannot be increased. When life is over, no further spiritual traffic is possible for thee; therefore what thou dost, do now; treat this day as if thy life had been already spent, and this were an extra day granted thee by the
special favor of the Almighty.”
Imam Al-Ghazali
