Here is a question;
What is the disadvantage if we deal each other as; kings, queens, princess, princesses: in general?
What is the advantage of being rude to each other; in general?
What are your ambitions if you have enough money and influential position?
We, very few people know the difference between pleasure and happiness:
Examples of pleasure are tasty and favorite food, video games, youth indulgences, ....;
Result of pleasure is boredom, addiction, suffering, overweight, .....
Examples of happiness; spending quality time with parents, achieving some position, winning elections, ....
Pleasure is instant, pleasure is temporary; Happiness is permanent comparatively.
When we are living in time; even present; we can’t live happy life. If some accident happens to ourselves or anyone near and dear to us, it snatches away our mode of happiness and performance accordingly.
Imam Ali AS: the cure is within you, but you do not see, the disease is within you, but you do not sense. “Your cure is within you, yet you do not sense it! Your sickness is from you, yet you do not see it! You are the open book. You consider yourself a small body; but within you is encapsulated (enfolded) the entire universe!”
The human being has unbelievable ability to reach the highest level (higher than angel and lower than animal).
Living in past is like playing with our waste. Living in future is life of imagination.
Summary; when we are living in time, we have limited life but when time is living within us then we can live full life.
The hatred in the society, non-cooperation, cheapness, meanness, miserliness, selfishness, stinginess, ungenerosity; is very common.
How can we promote bigheartedness, bountifulness, bounty, generosity, generousness, largesse (largess), liberality, openhandedness, openheartedness, unselfishness; in the society.
The only way is to follow the path of Hazrat Ibrahim AS and Imam Hussain AS.
Moses and Pharaoh, Shabbir and Yazid; From life spring these conflicting potencies (power, energy); (Allama Iqbal)
People hate when they see something different. People never hate anyone like them. They love similarity and help fully for that. They don’t know the importance and possibilities of the uniqueness.
Prove yourself with massive success. You will have a lot of discoveries through this relentless journey. Pay the price for your uniqueness. Work for 17 hours every day to find your passion and then prove that it’s truly your passion.
Misconceptions
Allama Majlisi was invited by a rich man. Then he just realized that his group of friends had no good reputation and were also invited. He thought it's easy to request Allama to leave for this event and should come sometimes later. Allama told him, don’t worry, let everyone come.
Bad fame leader started talking to Allama. Agha! People just bad name us. We are people with principles. We are not namak haram. We do bad things in remote areas. Allama, after listening their side of story, explained to them. You are not abiding by your own set principles. Namak belongs to Allah SWT, not to areas and people. So just be with what you are claiming.
Virus makes computer unable to work even though it is latest, fastest. The virus for humans is disappointment, lack of courage, no big dreams, lack of determination, blaming family, friends, situations.
Muniba Mazari says, 'I came out to find my hero, I couldn’t, so I became one. I know the value of the words, they may build or ruin the world, so I think before I speak'.
When I am not positive, I keep quiet. I don't hurt others to heal myself. 
I found this secret that I am drowning when I am anchoring everyone else. 
A Hadeeth says, 'Khairun Naas mai'n yanfa'un Naas...' 
"خير الناس من ينفع الناس" 
The best among You is the one who Benefits People...!!!
Let's make ourselves the most beneficial for others. 
Let's be afraid even close to the following; Al-Munafiqun (The Hypocrites) 63:4
وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَهُمْ تُعْجِبُكَ أَجْسَامُهُمْ وَإِن يَقُولُوا تَسْمَعْ لِقَوْلِهِمْ كَأَنَّهُمْ خُشُبٌ مُّسَنَّدَةٌ يَحْسَبُونَ كُلَّ صَيْحَةٍ عَلَيْهِمْ هُمُ الْعَدُوُّ فَاحْذَرْهُمْ قَاتَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ أَنَّى يُؤْفَكُونَ 
And when you look at them, they have such looks that they make you wonder and when they speak, their speech is so beauteous and attractive that you listen to their words. They are as blocks of wood, dry, brainless, futile, relying on one another. They think that every cry is against them. They are the enemies; therefore, beware of them. May Allah slay them! How are they deviating from the True Path?
And when you see them, their forms please you, and if they speak, you listen to their speech. [They are] as if they were pieces of wood propped up - they think that every shout is against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded (deceived by false beliefs)?
Hiding behind the excuses (poor family, luck) and blaming others for failures. Learning from mistakes, taking responsibility and finding solutions - of course the route of hard work. These are two options for a person in normal life.
Narrowing down the use of brain in the name of 'belief' and with open mind facing and dealing with realities are other two options. The second one is beginning of intelligence.
Follow or lead the crowd. Following the crowd leads to mediocrity, self-betrayal, and resigned to an average life. Striking own path needs spine but has a bright ultimate.
Happiness and sadness cannot be attached to possessions, relationships, position ..... Society has wrongly conditioned us opposite. Now we are stuck with this delusion.
Al-Hadid (Iron) 57:23
لِكَيْلَا تَأْسَوْا عَلَى مَا فَاتَكُمْ وَلَا تَفْرَحُوا بِمَا آتَاكُمْ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ
[Know this,] so that you may not despair over whatever [good] has escaped you nor exult (celebrate) [unduly] over whatever [good] has come to you: for, God does not love any of those who, out of self-conceit, act in a boastful manner.
Let it go
Two monks; one senior and the other junior. The senior picked up a requesting young girl on his shoulders and crossed the river. Placed her gently on the other side and carried on his journey. The junior monk was stuck with thought of girl.
Put the glass down; A professor in a class explains, how tiny feelings affect us by the time. Vigilant filtration and  aware circle of friends is very helpful.

Al-Imran (The Family of Imran) 3:134
الَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ فِي السَّرَّاء وَالضَّرَّاء وَالْكَاظِمِينَ الْغَيْظَ وَالْعَافِينَ عَنِ النَّاسِ وَاللّهُ يُحِبُّ الْمُحْسِنِينَ
Who spend [in His way] in time of plenty and in time of hardship, and hold in check their anger, and pardon their fellow-men because God loves the doers of good;

At-Tauba (The Repentance) 9:120
مَا كَانَ لِأَهْلِ الْمَدِينَةِ وَمَنْ حَوْلَهُم مِّنَ الأَعْرَابِ أَن يَتَخَلَّفُواْ عَن رَّسُولِ اللّهِ وَلاَ يَرْغَبُواْ بِأَنفُسِهِمْ عَن نَّفْسِهِ ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ لاَ يُصِيبُهُمْ ظَمَأٌ وَلاَ نَصَبٌ وَلاَ مَخْمَصَةٌ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَلاَ يَطَؤُونَ مَوْطِئًا يَغِيظُ الْكُفَّارَ وَلاَ يَنَالُونَ مِنْ عَدُوٍّ نَّيْلاً إِلاَّ كُتِبَ لَهُم بِهِ عَمَلٌ صَالِحٌ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُضِيعُ أَجْرَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ
It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the Bedouins of the neighborhood to remain behind Allâh's Messenger and to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhseneen (doers of good).

Ho Halqa-e-Yaran To Baresham Ki Tarah Naram
Razm-e-Haq-o-Batil Ho To Foulad Hai Momin
A man whose faith is firm and strong is soft as silk in friendly throng: In skirmish (a fight) 
between wrong and right like sword of steel, he stands to fight!

Al-Furqan (The Criterion) 25:63
وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا
And, [true] servants of the Most Gracious are [only] they who walk gently on earth, and who, whenever the foolish address them, reply with [words of] peace;
‘Pride is concerned with who is right. Humility is concerned with what is right.’ Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real. Humility is really important because it keeps you fresh and new. Pride must die in you, or nothing of heaven can live in you. Humility is nothing but truth, and pride is nothing but lying. Selflessness is humility. Humility and freedom go hand in hand. Only a humble person can be free.

Al-A'raf (The Heights) 7:51
الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُواْ دِينَهُمْ لَهْوًا وَلَعِبًا وَغَرَّتْهُمُ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا فَالْيَوْمَ نَنسَاهُمْ كَمَا نَسُواْ لِقَاء يَوْمِهِمْ هَـذَا وَمَا كَانُواْ بِآيَاتِنَا يَجْحَدُونَ
Those who, beguiled (charm in a deceptive way) by the life of this world, have made play and passing delights their religion! [And God will say:] "And so We shall be oblivious (blind to) of them today as they were oblivious of the coming of this Day [of Judgment], and as Our messages they did deny:

Al-Hashr (The Gathering) 59:19
وَلَا تَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ نَسُوا اللَّهَ فَأَنسَاهُمْ أَنفُسَهُمْ أُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ
And be not like those who are oblivious of God, and whom He therefore causes to be oblivious of [what is good for] their own selves: it is they, they who are truly depraved!

Al-Mujadilah (The Disputation) 58:19
اسْتَحْوَذَ عَلَيْهِمُ الشَّيْطَانُ فَأَنسَاهُمْ ذِكْرَ اللَّهِ أُوْلَئِكَ حِزْبُ الشَّيْطَانِ أَلَا إِنَّ حِزْبَ الشَّيْطَانِ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ
Satan has gained mastery over them, and has caused them to remain oblivious of the remembrance of God. Such as these are Satan's partisans: oh, verily, it is they, the partisans of Satan, who will truly be the losers!

Battle of Badr was fought in 624 with 313 Muslims and 1000 enemies. 27 Meccans were killed, 22 alone by Ali ibn e Abi Talib. Byzantine (Roman) Empire was defeated in 6 days in Battle of Yarmouk in 636. In 651 Muslims conquered Persian Empire. A phenomenal study is needed.
When a number of unpaired electrons are aligned with their spins in the same direction with the passage of electrical current, they combine to produce a significant magnetic field in iron rod. Before they were cancelling their magnetic fields of each other by spinning in opposite and random directions.
Conquest of Mecca; I speak to you in the same words as Yūsuf spoke to his brothers. This day there is no reproof against you; Go your way, for you are free. Even he who enters the house of Abu Sufyan will be safe, He who lays down arms will be safe, He who locks his door will be safe.
