He volunteers at a local community centre where he spends each morning monitoring the car park for 2 hours. He does this so that he can talk to all the kids who park there for school each day.
Encourage them. Bless them. Be there for them. Speak positivity into their lives.
The next 2 hours of his morning he spends reading and memorising the Qur’ān.
But he challenges himself every single day.
He’s currently obsessed with completing his Hifz.
Then the next hour he spends writing anything that comes to mind.
He does all of this by 11 AM each morning.
When I asked him why he followed this routine, he responded, “What else am I going to do? Go play Scrabble with all of the old people?”
At 80 years old he’s still young.
He has a burning fire inside him.
He’s younger than most 20-year-olds.
What did you do before 11 AM today?
Most of you reading this are wandering through life.
Most of you are older than that 80-year-old man, because being old isn’t a time of life, it’s state of mind.
You’re consumed with worry, doubt, self-distrust and fear.
It’s paralyzed you from taking action.
If you are seeking the Qur’ān, take it off the bookshelf.
