I looked at all friends

“I looked at all friends

and did not find a better friend

than safeguarding the tongue.

I thought about all dresses,

but did not find a better dress than piety.

I thought about all types of wealth,

but did not find a better wealth

than contentment in little.

I thought of all types of good deeds,

but did not find a better deed

than offering good advice.

I looked at all types of sustenance

but did not find a better sustenance than patience.”
[Umar (r.a)
