Don't regret then!
A group of people once were walking through a valley of rocks
They heard a voice from the sky
'Whoever picks up any rocks will regret it, and whoever doesn't pick up any rocks will also regret it'
The group was confused!
Some picked up rocks while others didn't!
The next morning when the group woke up:
Those who picked up rocks found out that their rocks had transformed into diamonds!
Those who didn't pick up rocks deep in regret that they didn't have any diamonds!
While those who did pick up rocks were also regretful that they didn't pick up more!
We will all stand on the Day of Judgment in regret:
Those that have done nothing will be regretful!
While those who have done some will regret they didn't do more!
Let’s start Good Deeds Right Now!
