Awn on Improvement: Be a better person day after day

October 31, 2016

Ibn Al-Mubarak reported: Awn ibn Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “A man advised his son, saying: O my son, you must be mindful of Allah. If you are able to be better today than you were yesterday and to be better tomorrow than you are today, then do so.”

عن بن المبارك قَالَ عَوْنُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ رضي الله عنه قَالَ أَوْصَى رَجُلٌ ابْنَهُ فَقَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ عَلَيْكَ بِتَقْوَى اللَّهِ وَإِنِ اسْتَطَعْتَ أَنْ تَكُونَ الْيَوْمَ خَيْرًا مِنْكَ أَمْسِ وَغَدًا خَيْرًا مِنْكَ الْيَوْمَ فَافْعَلْ
