Use Your Time, Body and Soul Wisely ! [Eid Mubarak 2013]: Eid Artwork, By @Calligrafist

Use your time wisely. Spend it only in pursuit of things that are good. Hold the world in your hand if you so desire, but never let the world use your heart as its abode. Your understanding of the world around you will based off of how you take care of the world within you. Treat your heart as something precious, and let only what is good for have the privilege of receiving its love.

There are many of selfish people in this world. People who think first of themselves. Don't be like them. Don't give in to the tyranny of your ego and self. Don't be hateful, don't be racist, don't be ignorant or foolish. Learn to appreciate diversity by actually experiencing it and not just talking about it or watching it on TV or in a movie. Talk to and build a relationship with someone that the world would fully let you get away with not interacting with, simply because it's the right thing to do and you understand that it will benefit you. It's harder to stereotype when you actually learn someone's name.
Let gratitude influence your worldview and gentleness dominate your demeanor.
The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, said, "God is kind and loves kindness and gives for gentleness what He does not give for harshness nor for anything else."
And in another narration, "Whenever kindness is in a thing it adorns it, and whenever it is removed from anything, it disfigures it."
Ask yourself regularly how the life that you live brings benefit not just to you, but how does it bring benefit to the people around you. Do good when the opportunity arises, not only when it is convenient. And when you have gone and done well and feel that suffices, go out and do some more. There will always be more to do.
You are men and women of great potential - have the courage and confidence to reach it. Never lose hope, no matter what the situation, and couple that hope with a firm footing in reality. When you feel alone, and think that no one understands, remember that there is a young Imam in New York City who is remembering you in every one of his prayers, regardless of the lifestyle you have chosen or the circumstances you find yourself in.
For those celebrating the Eid ul-Fitr holiday, Eid Mubarak. May your day be blessed and full of joy. For those not celebrating, may your day be blessed more so. It doesn't have to be a holiday to feel uplifted. We don't need always need reasons to be happy, as we usually do to be sad.
May your noble intentions be elevated and life's objectives be facilitated as you continue to do all that you. May you be protected from hearts that are not humble, tongues that are not wise, and eyes that have forgotten how to cry. May you always be successful, compassionate, understanding, and loved, and may you be increased in each of these values for every tomorrow that you see.
