When you wake up in the morning, do not expect to see the evening. Live as if today is all that you have got. Yesterday had passed with all its good and evil, while tomorrow has not arrived yet. Let the span of your life be but one day, as if you were born in it and will die at its end. With this attitude, you will not be caught between an obsession over the past, with all its anxieties, and the hopes of the future, with all its uncertainties.

Live for today and during this day you should pray with a wakeful heart, recite the Qur'an with deep understanding and remember Allah with sincerity. During this day you should strike balance between your affairs, get satisfied with your allotted portion, and be concerned with your appearance and health.

Live today free from sorrow, bother, anger, jealousy, or malice. Organize the hours of this day, so that you make years out of minutes and months out of seconds. Seek forgiveness from your Lord, remember Him, prepare for the final parting from this world, and live today happily and in peace. Be content with your sustenance, your wife, your children, your work, your house and your life.

{So hold that which I have given thee, and be among the thankful.} (Al-A`raf 7: 144)
