Begin the day and the week on the 'Right Intention'.
In Islam actions come from intentions and each person will have what s/he intended (That is a hadith which i just summarised in my own quick words).
Here's the thing though.
In the West we have become accustomed to living in a Matrix.
We go to work all week and then weekend we party and then we have Monday Blues.
Who created this Monday Blues concept?
Each day we wake alive is another day for us to ask for Allah's forgiveness. His mercy and His help.
We ask Him (swt) in each prayer; 'Guide us to the straight path' yet we have Monday Blues?
We as Muslims need to snap out of this! And yes we can.
Monday is also a Sunnah fast day - so fast.
Surround yourself with good friends, books, articles - all things which will uplift your soul and help you - especially if you have an emaan low.
This doesn't mean that we don't think about others who are being oppressed in the world - however, honestly, how can we help them if we need help? I mean if we are low on emaan or if we are negative then how can we help our Ummah.
Helping those oppressed is not just through monetary means but also by being strong Muslims.
Eats well. Sleep well. Read well. Be well.
If you are well then insha'Allah you can help others also.
And then if you are down others can help you also.
That's the way it works.
So no more Monday Blues - let's make our moments count as each moment is our only moment - and this should be a sufficient reminder for us.
Have a blessed week ahead and let me know what you've got planned! :)

I reveal my TOP 3 SECRETS!!!
Here is what one sister said after attending the class:
"I have taken away a lot but most importantly the concept of 'permission'. If you don't allow yourself time to do the right things in life, other things will take over and your ultimate goal will remain unachieved. Since Thursday night I constantly reflected back. I wake up at 5 am every morning. After Fajr prayer my hubby spends an hour reading the Quran and learning Arabic whilst I make breakfast and pack lunch for everyone. Similarly, when I come home after work I get busy in the kitchen preparing dinner and doing things for my family's comfort. But when is comes to prayers, I am always rushing! Allah will not change the condition of those who do not change what is within themselves." Sr S.C
My passion in life is to creatively help you find your unique purpose in life and to align it with our ultimate purpose of worshiping God.
This is my unique purpose! :)
[We were in the company of the Prophet in a funeral procession at Baqi Al-Gharqad. He said, "There is none of you but has his place written for him in Paradise or in the Hell- Fire." They said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we depend (on this fact and give up work)?" He said, "Carry on doing (good deeds), for everybody will find it easy to do (what will lead him to his destined place)." Then he recited "As for him who gives (in charity) and keeps his duty to Allah, and believes in the Best reward from Allah (i.e. Allah will compensate him for what he will spend in Allah's way). So, We will make smooth for him the path of ease. But he who is a greedy miser...for him, the path for evil." (92.5-10)]
