    Salaam Alaykum, 
     
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.
    I have searched online and on al-islam.org, I am looking for anecdotes and stories from the life of Imam Hussein(as) before the event of Kerbala - in particular his kindness, generosity and humanity. I am planning to make a video to show the greatness of the character of the Imam. All I can find is related to 'Ashura.
     
    Any help would be appreciated!
     
    Ma'salaam

    Never rely on our expect a person to make you happy or give you contentment. You have to find that within yourself.
    But marriage to the right person is great. If you meet them, I recommend it. Marriage to the wrong person will make you more miserable than you ever could imagine.

    Salaam Alaykum, 
    This is a very interesting topic and I learnt many good things. I am struggling with a similar problem myself where I have everythingI need/want but yet feel a void in my life.
     
    I feel like I need to connect back to Allah [swt] but I don't know how. I believe I need to get rid of my netflix-procastination habit but that is SO HARD! I don't know how to stop watchign TV when I am home alone - and unfortunately I am home alone ALL the time!

    I feel lost in life. I want to do many things, however I am not passionate enough about them to actually get up and start working.
     
    For instance, I want to gain islamic knowledge and I am awed by the people of knowledge - however, when it comes to actually reading, i procrastinate.
     
    I don't know what to do - i have zero motivation and i procastinate a lot.
     
     
    any ideas how to get out of this cycle?

    Walaykumsalam
     
     
    First, understand that people are literally dying in large numbers worldwide. Of the ones that survive, a large number live in poverty and unfortunate situations. To have 'free' time, to have security and health, to have oppurtunity is something that therefore is to be thought of as a gem.
     
    Secondly, when you have so many things you want to do, and have so many options, you often end up doing barely anything. So try to restrict yourself - to force yourself to choose. So if you have fifty books you want to read, narrow it down to five and then after thought just 'go for it' with one of those books.
     
    I also recommend being deliberate, having a clear and achievable goal for each task and a clear time frame, so you have to work at it.
     
    And lastly, be consistent - this does not mean you aren't flexible, but be consistent with things even if you 'don't feel like it'
     
    Hope it helps :) Same boat here!

    Chuck Feeney
    Growing up in the wake of The Depression as an Irish-American probably has something to do with Feeney's frugality. With a personal motto of "I set out to work hard, not get rich," the co-founder of Duty Free Shoppers has quietly become a billionaire but even more secretively given almost all of it away through his foundation, Atlantic Philanthropies. The foundation has distributed around $6.2 billion dollars into schools, research departments and hospitals.
    A frequent user of public transportation, Mr. Feeney flies economy class, buys clothes from retail stores, and does not wast money on an extensive shoes closet, stating "you can only wear one pair of shoes at a time." He made his children work the same normal summer jobs as most teens.
    Ingvar Kamprad
    The founder of the Swedish furniture phenomenon Ikea struck success with affordable, assemble-it-yourself furniture. For Kamprad, figuring out how to save money isn't just for his customers, it's a high personal value. He's been quoted as saying "Ikea people do not drive flashy cars or stay at luxury hotels." That goes for the founder as well. He flies coach for business and when he needs to get around town locally he either takes the bus or will head out in his old Volvo.
    Carlos Slim
    While most of the world is very familiar with Bill Gates, the name Carlos Slim rarely rings a bell. However, it's a name worth knowing. Slim, who is a native of Mexico, as of March 2012 holds the No. 1 spot as the world's richest billionaire - that's right, richer than the uber-famous Microsoft founder. Slim is worth more than $69 billion, and while he could afford the world's most extravagant luxuries, he rarely indulges. He, like Buffett, has lived in the same home for over 40 years.
    Warren Buffett
    Millions of people read Buffett's books and follow his firm's, Berkshire Hathaway, every move. The real secret to Buffett's personal fortune may be his penchant for frugality. Buffett, who as of September 2012 had a net worth of approximately $46 billion, eschews opulent homes and luxury items. He still lives in a modest home in Omaha, Neb. which he purchased for just $31,500 more than 50 years ago. Although he's dined in the best restaurants around the globe, given the choice he would opt for a good burger and fries accompanied by a cold cherry Coke. When asked why he doesn't own a yacht he responded: "Most toys are just a pain in the neck."
    Conclusion
    The dirty little secret of some of the world's wealthiest people is that they rarely act like it. Instead of over-the-top spending, they're busy figuring out how to save and invest to have that much more in the future. It's a habit you might want to consider in order to build up your own little storehouse of cash.
