1- He did good to others. He was well-known as 'al-ameen' ( the trustworthy)
2- He was clean of what was dirty literally, dirty figuratively and detrimental to his mind (despite being illiterate). For example, he did not attend/participate in pagan festivals.
3- Thirdly, he meditated alone.
Many of us nowadays are afraid to be alone, to eat alone, to pray alone, to sleep alone, to shop alone, to walk alone, and to even read alone. Group studying and group-‘discussions’ of assignments are awesome I know. ;)
But, we needn’t be so dependent, it’s healthy to open up to some people but it’s also important to talk to yourselves and to listen to yourself. Educate yourself alone without having to swallow some opinions of others about that issue. Then, involve yourself in discussion.
If you can’t bear to sit with yourself for a few moments, how do you expect people to listen to you. If you can’t bare yourself to yourself, how will you bare yourself to your loved ones? How will you grow strong?
If you don’t understand yourself first, how will you explore your opportunities in life?
How will you hope, how will you wish and therein allow your wishes to be fulfilled by God who’s close to you waiting for your whispers and prayers?
That’s the beauty of making time for yourself, don’t expect to wind-up free for it someday , because you never will.
I repeat, make time for yourself!
