Publisher's Note

Everyone wants to live life to the fullest. Everyone has some goals, some ambitions and some desires about the life he wants to live.

Not each person is similar to other about the likes regarding the life. The environment, family values, knowledge, education and profession affect the mental attitude to form about life, resulting in the making of the temperament of the person. Then after his behavior is developed as how to live a life.

If a person has no type of mental bounds then he is apt to adopt free ways to acquire whatever his goals and ambitions are, and to fulfill his desires by all possible means no matter fair or unfair.

But the person who has some good knowledge about the reality of life, his attitude about life, and its goals and ambitions will be different and so will be the ways of fulfilling his desires. He will found himself bound to adopt only the fair and legal ways.

Islam has presented clear conceptions regarding life and death, likes and dislikes, forbidden and allowed, and things legal and illegal. Our pious Predecessors have tried their utmost to live life according to them. In this book, we
are presenting the glimpses of their lives so as to think over our conceptions of life and mend them accordingly to what is right. The contents of the book are interesting and motivating. We hope that people will get benefited from it.
