Make a Positive Impact on Those Around You

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

When you have a positive effect on those around you, and then you leave–whether that leaving were the leaving of death and departing the present life of this world, or [just] the leaving of moving to another place–

Here it is that people will come to miss your presence [among them].

So be intent on leaving a beautiful mark wherever it is you settle down: it’s the good people will say [about you] after [you’re gone]; it’s all [their] good memories.
