Good Advice

A reminder to myself first:

As narrated by Abu Huraira, radiallahu anhu, the Prophet, peace be upon him, said

‏ مَنْ كَانَ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ فَلْيُكْرِمْ ضَيْفَهُ، وَمَنْ كَانَ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ فَلْيَصِلْ رَحِمَهُ، وَمَنْ كَانَ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ فَلْيَقُلْ خَيْرًا أَوْ لِيَصْمُتْ

Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should serve his guest generously; and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should unite the bond of kinship (i.e. keep good relation with his kith and kin); and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should talk what is good or keep quiet.

Good advice for us all, for sure, but especially for me, an introvert that tends to get wrapped up in digital stuff and neglect the physical stuff. By the grace of God alone, and because I don’t like to talk much anyway, I tend to keep my mouth shut, so that’s something. But I need to be better, in so very many ways.
