This book is a compilation of some of the wise sayings of the prophet (s), of 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 fervor to prepare for the Day of Judgement. Verily, we are all in need of such counsel, for our Day of Judgment begins not when the world ends, but when our life comes to an end – which is indeed imminent – as the Prophet stated.
