Daily Islamic Quote
A certain man was renowned for his virtue. The king asked him, 'How do you spend your time?' The man replied, 'I spend the nights praying, and I spend the days laboring. I try to regulate my family’s expenses, so I can spend as little time as possible laboring, and as much time as possible praying.' The king gave the man enough money to support himself and his family, so that he could pray during the day as well as the night.
