..5.30am UK - Each new day brings new hope and new opportunities. The birdies have been chirping since as early as 3am. Ah, if only my whole street could step out for 30 seconds to hear them - its like no human exists here - just birds. They are up early because they believe and they hope and they are up for new opportunities. And so should we. A lesson for us all. Have a blessed day ahead
God gives us the same lesson over and over again until we actually learn from it and then we will be ready to move on. But when will we learn from this lesson? Its up to you - you decide :)
You are blessed with so many talents and skills - why don't you use them? As soon as you start using your talents and skills for the greater good and pleasing the Creator the sooner you'll be happy within and the sooner you'll be happy on the outside. Why wait for someone to see your worth? Please the Creator not His creation. You are worth it! Be Creative. Be Passionate. Be on Purpose.
...If we woke up alive its a blessing because its another opportunity to worship God, another opportunity to seek His forgiveness, another opportunity to do good, another opportunity to help another soul. Each breath we take is a gift from God. No matter how rough or hard it seems right now - it'll come to pass and you'll be ok. Its a lesson. Everything is a lesson. And when we've learnt the lesson and understood it then that's when we're ready to move forward. Trust Gods timing and don't rush it. So which of our Lords favours will we deny? Say 'Alhamdulilah ala kuli haal' - alhamdulilah for everything. Take a deep breath in - hold - breathe out and say bismillah - in the name of Ar-Rahman - and watch how everything turns to a blessing by His will because we began it in His name :) ♥
The only limitations in our life are the ones we place on ourselves. Even if you're locked up - your mind is still free and your soul is free. Limit yourself and you limit your life, dreams, goals. Happiness is not a miracle pill. Fix your thoughts and emotions and you're fixed. You're not broken. You just think you are. If you start counting your blessings you'll run out of excuses. Want peace, solace and happiness. Go be it. People can guide you - but you have to act on it. Its our negative thoughts which lead to negative habits and behaviour. We're responsible. No one else. You're free to be who you want to be. The question is are you being you or using excuses and saying; 'so and so won't let me'? Be You!
...One of the many blessings God has bestowed upon us is speech. Yet many of us are not eloquent in our speech. We need to turn back to the Seerah and biographies of our pious predecessors to learn eloquence from them. There is much power in speech. Actors, politicians, leaders invest in this areas so they can influence change. What are we doing to influence change? We need to develop eloquent, powerful and an influential persona insha'Allah. Remember, the Ummah of Rasool-Allah is strictly 150% of the best! We need to live up to it!
♡ "Life is a book with many chapters. Some tell of tragedy, others of triumph. Some chapters are dull & ordinary, others intense and exciting. The key to being successful in life is to never stop on a difficult page, to never quit on a tough chapter. Allah's champions have the courage to keep turning the pages because they know a better chapter lies ahead & with Allah nothing is impossible! May you & your family be blessed today and Always." Ameen! ♡
...In life we're not defined by the kind of problems we have, but by how we handle them!
How do YOU handle your problems?
Its ok to have a 'pitty party' - feeling sorry for oneself and letting those emotions out but don't allow it to take over!
Remember Allah says in the Qur'an; 'Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope'.
This simply means that whatever comes our way Allah already knows we can handle it - He's looking for our reactions - will we be grateful or ungrateful, will we curse or endure with patience, will we wallow in pitty or look for solutions.
Let's not disappoint our Creator and let's not be defined by our problems but be defined by those who handle with patience and peserverance.
When a bird is alive it eats ants but when the bird is dead ants eat it!
Time and circumstances can change at any time...
Don't devalue or hurt anyone in life...
You may be powerful today but remember time is more powerful than you!
One tree makes a million match sticks but when the time comes only one match stick is needed to burn a million trees...
So be good and do good for the sake of your souls.
Smiling Makes You Look Younger

Study participants who looked at photos of happy people underestimated the age of those pictured by two years, says a
Psychology and Aging study. They accurately guessed age when the same people looked angry or expressionless in the photos.
