  32. 32. 2. Patience. Once, H. Khabab Ibn Al-Arat came creeping to Prophet Muhammad and said: "Could you pray for us, we are desperate, tired and fed up with unbelievers torturing us", Prophet Muhammad got angry, and his face became red and said: "In the people before you there were those who were sawed and never let go of their religion, I swear that Allah will end this any way, but you are rushing."
  33. 33. 3. No to selfish goals the goal should not be a selfish self- centered one, but it should be directed towards serving the society, the country and all Humanity. The self- centered goal is a short term goal. your life will end and your goals will not.

Prophet Muhammad's when he told his uncle: "I swear my uncle, if they put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left hand to leave the message of Islam, I will not till Allah upholds it or I die for its sake.” 4. Strong believe in goals
  35. 35. Goals & efforts Exerting great efforts…instead of sleeping and dreaming. • Goal without effort = dreams. • Efforts without goals = waste of time. • Goal + effort = SUCCESS.
