Assalamualaikum wr wb.

I have decided to stop making my own layouts.
I realised that it is time consuming and it gave me a certain urgency that i don't need.
There's an arabic proverb that says: Time is like a sword. And if we don't cut it, it wil cut us first.

I need to cut this time before it does to me. Time really is precious and we really don't know how much of it we have. Saying "maybe later" or "not now" or "i will do it- tommorow" does not slow down or stop the time for that matters. If time were a person,i think it would actually smirk or laugh at our indifference.

"By (the Token of) Time (through the ages),Verily Man is in loss.Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy."
Needless to say it has been a fun experience studying codes and layouts. But there are other more important things to focus on other than brushes,layers,paintshop pro and this computer screen.

"Whoever wakes up and this world is his main concern, Allah will make him
scattred and shattered, and he will feel a sense of panic and loss, and he will
get nothing of this world except that which was already decreed for him.

But whoever gets up and is mostly concerned about the Hereafter, Allah
will cause him to feel focused and content, and will give him a feeling of being
independent, and worldly gains will come to him willingly or unwillingly."

SubhanAllah. Sounds simple. But i know it will be quite a challenge for me.
How about you my dear sisters and brothers?
