Four Things To Know

Hatim al-Asamm said, "I have chosen four things to know and discarded all other things of knowledge.

     "The first is this: I know that my daily bread is apportioned
to me and will neither be increased or decreased, so I have stopped
trying to add to it.
     "Secondly, I know I owe to God a debt which no one else can
pay for me, so I am busy about paying it.
     "Thirdly, I know that there is someone pursuing me ---
Death --- whom I cannot escape from, so I have prepared myself
to meet him.
     "Fourth, I know that God is observing me, so I am ashamed
to do what I should not."

Credit for this goes to a good friend Danial Ahmed Sheikh :)
