10 important lessons to inspire and stimulate your growth and progress in life.

A special dua and gratitude goes to my niece, Fatima Nana, who has a simple but inspirational grasp of Luqman’s advice. (*Let me share a secret*… I had to call her while preparing this post to tap into her *youthly* inspiration as she took me through the pieces of advice from A-Z.

A bigger dua goes to her special aunt, Umm Halimah – the reading/ literacy expert – who read the story of ‘Luqman’s advice to his son’ to her at the Summer Literacy Quest.

Pick what you need in your life now and develop yourself.

You can boost your spirituality, improve your personality and strengthen your relationships.

If not now, then when?

Treat Luqman’s advice as you would wise counsel from your beloved parents. Read the words, reflect on meanings and use lessons in your daily life.

Tap into the wisdom of Luqman, the wise.
