اِغْتَنِمُواْ مِنْ أَهْلِ زَمَانِكُمْ خَمْساً

إِنْ حَضَرْتُم لَمْ تُعْرَفُواْ

وَ إِنْ غِبْتُم لَمْ تَفْتَقِدُواْ

وَ إِنْ شَهِدْتُم لَمْ تُشَاوَرُواْ

وَ إِنْ قُلْتُمْ شَيْئاً لَمْ يُقْبَلْ قَوْلُكُمْ

وَ إِنْ عَمِلْتُمْ شَيْئاً لَمْ تُعْطَوا بِهِ

 

Benefit from the people of your time in five things:

That you are not known when you show up,

You are not missed when you are absent,

You are not asked for your input when you are present,

Your statements are not accepted when you speak,

And when you do something, you are not given anything for it.

Qaasim al Joo’ee (rahimahullah)
