Know that knowledge today will not distance you from sins, nor bring you into obedience , nor distance you from Hell tomorrow . If you do not act today and do not derive lessons from your past days, you will say on the Last Day: “Return us to our previous life and we will do good deeds,” and it will be said to you: “O fool,it is from there that you have come.”

From: dear beloved son (A yuhal walad) From Imam Ghazali Translated by Dr. Kamal el-Helbawy
