Shaykh ibn ‘Atha’illah as-Sakandari (q.s.): Do Not Miss Out on the Gatherings

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh ibn ‘Atha’illah as-Sakandari (q.s.) said, “Do not miss out on a gathering of wisdom because you happen to be committing acts of disobedience.  Do not say, ‘What is the benefit in listening to the gathering when I am unable to abandon acts of disobedience?’  Instead, the archer should shoot, because if he misses the target today, he will hit it tomorrow.  If you are intelligent and clever, then you would have given Allah’s Rights precedence over your own selfish desires.”
