Actions Vs Intentions

Your actions are judged by your motives. Do it for worldly gains, that’s what you’ll get. The Almighty knows what’s in your heart; you can’t hide it. (Mufti Ismail Menk FB: 14 March 2016)

Jumuah Prayer

  • O you who believe! When the call is proclaimed for the Salat on Friday (Jumuah Prayer), come to the remembrance of Allah talk and Salat and leave off business (and every other thing). That is better for you if you did but know!
  • Then when the Jumuah Salat is ended, you may disperse through the land, and seek the bounty of Allah and remember Allah much: that you may be successful. (Al-Jumu’ah 62: 9,10; P760)

Nobody is More Persuasive than a Good Listener – Dale Carnegie


1443867933124-1481903043

 

  1.  I had listened intently.  I had listened because I was genuinely interested.  And he felt it. Naturally, that pleased him. That kind of listening is one of the highest compliments we can pay anyone.  And so i had him thinking of me as a good conversationalist when in reality I had been merely a good listener and had encoursaged him to talk.  (P79)
  2. No one can possibly know everything. Listening to others is the single best way to learn. (P82)

Step Outside Yourself to Discover What’s Important to Someone Else – Dale Carnegie

1443867933124-1481903043

Dale Carnegie. 1993. The Leader in You.  New York:  Pocket Books

  1. I wanted a private secretary last year, and I put an ad in the paper under a box number.  I bet I got three hundred replies…. But one woman was smart.  She didn’t talk about what she wanted.  She talked about what I wanted. … Her letter read like . this, “…I have had fifteen years experience…”  She then went on to tell about the important men she had worked for… A woman like that has the business world at her feet. (P67)
  2. Look at things from other person’s point of view.  It’s the single most important key to getting along in the world.  (P69)
  3. The basic principle – always try to look at things from the other person’s perspective – applies just as well. (P70)
  4. The highly competitive retailing industry has really been the leader in seeing the world from the customer’s point of view. (P71)
  5. If you want to have more successful relationships with your customers, your family and your friends, look at things from the other person’s perspective.  (P78)

Argue Less and Silent More.

Learn to be less argumentative. Instead of arguing, remain silent. There’s wisdom in praying for someone who makes it difficult for you. (Mufti Ismail Menk FB; 12 March 2016).

Justice

‘O Dawud (David)! Verily! We have placed you a successor on the earth; so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire – for it will mislead you from the path of Allah. Verily, those who wander astray from the path of Allah shall have a severe torment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning’ (Al-Sad 38: 26; p 611)
