Counsel 1:
These five sentences are found in the Towrah (Torah):
(1) Richness in the heart is in being content with what you have (qana’ah)
(2) Safety is in seclusion
(3) Dignity is in subduing lust
(4) Fortune (from good works) is in long life
(5) Patience is for short duration
– Hassan al- Basri 

Counsel 2:
One should value five things in life before five other things:
(1) Youth before old age
(2) Health before sickness
(3) Wealth before poverty
(4) Life before death
(5) Free time before work
– Muhammad (s.a.w)
