Muhammad al-Maruzi said:
“It was said that the mud will swallow up a ring so long as it is still soft.
In other words, knowledge should be sought after- when one is still young.”
The younger you are, the softer your heart and mind will be due to the distance between you and sin. This period denotes the most pro-active period for the absorption of guidance.
Many a parent say that these are the years to enjoy life…
As a Muslim we really should be saying that
(these are the years to lay the foundations for an enjoyable life!)
May we take heed.
