Nobody is perfect at all. It is only Almighty Allah that is perfect. Our Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that 'All Adam's children are sinners and that the best of them are those who repent.' For the past 50 years of my life, I have erred, but finally found how true the slogan used by the traffic department is: "To arrive late is better than not arrive at all." I started applying this to my daily life and everybody should follow my steps in this, because once you realize your mistakes, even if this happens late in your life, it is much better than to die before you realize them.

The first thing you have to reconsider is your relationship with yourself and how much you have done it wrong by not disciplining it and preparing it for a day when nobody can do you any good, including parents and children, except for one's good deeds and clear hearts.

In addition, relations with others around us must be evaluated according to this principle as well. We must review them before it is too late and we accordingly start losing. There are many enemies dressed and disguised as friends, while they hold the worst feelings and grudges against you within their hearts.

Then come public relations and admiring certain people. This is something one has to review at least three times a day, because we have finally realized that some people change five times a day in the blink of an eye, following the 'snakes' principle and pattern. You have to be very careful because you can never trust a snake. - Translated by Kuwait Times from Al-Anbaa
