If you do not make an intention of acquiring Khair (Deeni goodness) from ‘Ilm, then you will be deprived of Tawfeeq.
Imam Abu Haneefah (r.a)



My Worry for you is not that you fail to succeed, but that you succeed in the wrong thing.
author unknown

Ask yourself what is it that you striving towards and then assess whether this is in line with the success (of the akhirah) that Islam has clearly defined for us.

More knowledge?

You do not act according to the knowledge that you have already attained, then why are you desirous of more knowledge?
Hazrat Sirri Saqti
