Actually, this book doesn't contain chapter 1, 2 or 3 etc., but contain subtitles. I've read 4 subtitles. The book was so much reminding me of Allah and His blessings.
I love the one of the quotes, " Allah: the most beautiful of names, the truest combination of letters, and the most precious of words.".
The book also boost my spirit to keep struggling even people just dont know or even care to you :')

I really love the book. Hopefully, I will be engaged to always keep be spirit in reading it. Today I'll just share a quote that boost more my spirit.
"Perform acts of charity seeking Allah's pleasure, because with this attitude you will assuredly be successful. The ungrateful person cannot really harm you: praise Allah that that person is the transgressor and that you are the obedient servant. Also, remember that the hand that gives is better than the hand that receives." (Page 36)

I was reminded not to become a person who worries about the unseen tomorrow but just do what you can do with your best effort today. Moreover, don't worry too much of criticism from other people. We can't pleased them all. Just do things that make Allah love us more. Furthermore, we as a human being should help if there is someone needed. It is because the first person who benefits from an act of charity is benefits himself.

Don't mimic others. Be you. You are beautiful just the way you are.
In the page of 40 I found a beautiful quote "Whatever has befallen you was not meant to escape you, and whatever has escaped you was not meant to befall you."

After finishing these pages, I can coclude that we should use time well and save our life from being wasted. Hold your tongue from backbiting. Free your heart from anxiety. Preserve your ears from profanity.
In addition, always remember Allah at any time. By the remembrance of Allah, worry and fear are driven away.

"Life is like a science or art. It needs to be learned and cultivated. It's much better for a person to plant love in his life than to glorify money. What is life when all energies are exploited and used for sole purpose of accumulating wealth, an existence where no energy is directed towards the cultivation of beauty, splendor, and love?" (Page 76)

I love this quotes. Life is not olny about pursuing money or wealth, but it's about you are aware of your surrounding, spread your smile, happiness and love to others. Remember that you, in this wolrd, don't live alone. There are some parts of yours that is owned by others. Note to myself :"""

Don't become an ignorant person. An ignorant person is actually lacking in meankng and his achievements are woefully incomplete.

Besides, if you feel a lot of pain in your life, bring them back to Allah, remember Him a lot. Let him secure and help you :)

If you desire happiness, then seek out knowledge and enlightment, and you will find anxiety, depression, and grief will leave you. Knowledge is a light thaytleads to wisdom. It is life for one's soul and fuel for one's character. Keep be spirit in seeking knowledge! Of course, the knowledge of your academic and also the knowledge of our religion :)

This hadith really realizes me to live my life in due moderation. Don't be too happy or too sad. Don't love someone very very much nor hate someone so hard. Perhap someday we will abhor or love him. We don't know the future.

"And I ask you (O' Allah) to make me just, both while being in a state of anger and while being in a state of joy." (The prophet shalallahu 'alayhi wasallam said)
