Excerpt from Kashaf Al-Majoob by Hazrat Ali Hajvairi [Daata Sahib of Lahore]

Hatim al-Asamm said: “I have chosen four things to know, and have discarded all the knowledge in the world besides.”

He was asked: “What are they?”

“One,” he answered, “is this: I know that my daily bread is apportioned to me, and will neither be increased nor diminished; consequently I have ceased to seek to augment it.

Secondly, I know that I owe to God a debt which no other person can pay instead of me; therefore I am occupied with paying it.

Thirdly, I know that there is one pursuing me (i.e. Death) from whom I cannot escape; accordingly I have prepared myself to meet him.

Fourthly, I know that God is observing me: therefore I am ashamed to do what I ought not.”
