Success isn’t measured with worldly possessions

You’ll kill your happiness if you constantly compare your life to those who have been given more than you. Be content with what Allah (God) has given you and never measure success by the acquisition of material things.

Shaykh Azhar Nasser (via Twitter)

In this age of social media, pay close attention to your value system. It can be easily eroded if you don’t have a firm grounding. Don’t be in awe of anyone showing off worldly possessions online. Instead, focus on his/her character & good moral principles; they’re worth far more.
