...Celebrate the praises of your Lord - day and night - and say alhamdulilah ala kuli haal - for really, He (swt) has given us everything we need and He (swt) has given us life - to achieve and do great things. This Ramadan plant the seed and say Bismillah. You too can achieve greatness - for yourself and for humanity! Khaapy Monday y'all!
“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” Jack Welch
And Allah (swt) grants success to whom He wills! :)
...Thank God and say alhamdulilah for all your experiences as they all have lessons for you and lessons to help others.
...Don't let them get to you. Keep doing what you have to do and stay focused. If you lose focus then you will lose your goal, your vision, your purpose. Let them lose - they chose that path. Not you. You are destined for greatness. God created you for a greater purpose.
It's not just about PMA - positive mental attitude - there's a way to actually develop that - it's about our thoughts, words, actions behaviour. It's about believing in the Divine and being hopeful. It's about our intention and sincerity. It's about working hard. It's about living on purpose, with purpose. It's about our ultimate vision - keeping the end in mind - Jannah al-Firdaus.
...God is with you - not against you - with Him by your side anything is possible. He helps those who help themselves, Go make your dreams a reality. It's Ramadan - set your intention right now and just go do it. You are created the best of nations - be the best you were created to be and unleash that greatness within you. Humanity needs YOU!
...What's stopping you from being the best version of you? What's stopping you from doing great things for yourself and humanity? Is it fear? Do you feel that you are not worthy/good enough? Fear of what others will think or fear that others will think/say who are you to do the things you do? That's exactly what stopped me also. But then I always knew I was created for something special - to do something special. And so are YOU! God created YOU for greatness. Just read the Seerah of Rasool Allah and the biographies of all our Pious Predecessors. Who lead the Europeans out of the Dark Ages? Who invented the basic things we use today? That's right - our Pious Predecessors. They knew they were created for greatness and so they used their time wisely. This Ramadan make a positive change in your life - say NO to fear and punch it in the face with taqwa, ikhlaas and niyyah. Will you step up to your greatness? Humanity needs YOU!
...live a life on purpose - with purpose!
Are YOU living a life on purpose with purpose?
...If you don't like what you do, work or study - then change it. You do have the power to change your situation. You have power to change your thoughts. And once you change your thoughts you'll clearly see opportunities to better your situation. Maybe no one told you you have the power. Maybe someone always put you down. Look at their life and look at yours. Maybe they are 'living the life' or maybe they are 'stuck in a rut' - that will answer a lot of your 'why' questions. So go ahead right now and come up with three different things/ways you can start making some positive changes in your life. And please share these posts to inspire and motivate others to start living the life they always dreamed of! You have the right to live your best life and the power to make it happen - God is with you each step of the way!
...Don't be afraid to be Muslim - especially in Ramadan. If you want to pray, then pray. If you want to read Qur'an then read Qur'an. If you want to attend tarawih, then attend tarawih. If you want to signup to an online class this month then go ahead. Don't be afraid. Has your heart and soul always wanted to get closer to Allah? Then just do it. Doesn't matter what others say - whether you wear a hijaab/niqaab or not - whether you have a beard or not. Listen, the way i see it, what you do behind closed doors is between you and Allah! I know that just like me you want to pray, read Qur'an, talk to Allah, become better. So go ahead. I'm not better than you! If people call you hypocrite then let them. Maybe this month is the month that creates miracles in your life. And if you are a 'practicing' (how i dislike that word!) Muslim then how about encourage those who don't usually attend mosque, pray, read Qur'an. How about support them for a change? What's with the arrogance? Drop it! No one is guaranteed Jannah - not me nor you, except by His mercy! Let this month bring positive changes to all our lives.
