This book is a compilation of some of the wise sayings of Prophet Muhammad (s), the companions, and of the pious predecessors and ascetics. Reflecting on these wise sayings and heeding these counsels will assist in infusing us with the requisite awareness and fervour to prepare for the Day of Judgement. Verily, we are all in need of such counsel, for our Day of Judgement begins not when the world ends, but when our life comes to an end, which is indeed imminent, as the Prophet stated.
The author is well known for his commentary on Sahih Al-Bukhari, and he has divided the book in a truly unique format. It is full of wisdom and gems and an absolute must for every Muslim household.
