"Richness is not in the quantity of possessions (that one has); rather, true richness is the richness of one's self (or contentment)." (Bukhari)
"Good never brings forth but good...This worldly wealth is (like) sweet (fruit), and if a person earns it (the wealth) in a legal way and spends it properly, then it is an excellent helper, and whoever earns it in an illegal way, he will be like the one who eats but is never satisfied." (Bukhari)
"Wealth and children are the adornments of the life of this world. But the permanent righteous deeds are better in your Lord's Sight (to attain) rewards, and better in respect of hope." (Quran 18: 46)
"And it is not your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us, but only he (will please Us) who believes, and does righteous deeds; for such (people), there will be a double reward for what they did, and they will reside in the high dwellings (of Paradise), in peace and security." (Quran 34: 37)
Istila you are a very creative person. I am not at all but my sister is.
We are all sisters and youngest brother. When I was young, in India people
used to tell my mom that I am her son. But I love the creative people like you.
