We all get the same 24 hours in a day and so did our pious predecessors. They did so much for Islam and humanity in such a short time - what are we doing? What's our excuse for not doing? Today make it the day to drop those excuses forever. Today take that first step in becoming the change you want to see in the world. Today let the genius within you rise. Remember, God created each of us for greatness. Don't waste this gift as those gone before us would wish they had just another moment. Say bismillah and begin. NOW! :)
...If you have a dream or goal you want to achieve, whether that is in your ibaadah (reading Qur'an everyday, starting Hifz or Arabic program) or duniya (work/job/study/business) then take some action NOW! Everyone who you look up to and has done it was where YOU are right now - thinking should I or should I not. Fear stops us. It can be fear of success, fear of responsibility and even fear of freedom. I mean after all these years of following someone else's routine now you're free to make your own. But take that first step. Its crucial. You owe it to your dreams. You owe it to yourself. Grab a pen and paper and in the middle write your goal. Then make three lines (branches) and write three things you will do immediately! A dream will always be a dream unless you act upon it. If I can do it then so can YOU! Ask Allah to help you and He will. Be Creative. Be Passionate. Be on Purpose. #WTHAI2013
Do our loved ones feel safe in our company? How do we treat them? Do we love and respect?
"The best believer according to his practice of Islam is one from whose tongue and hand Muslims are safe." [Bukhari & Muslim]
Let's not question how others treat us and let's make sure we treat our loved ones in the best manner. Let's work on being the best believers insha'Allah!
Start your week on a spiritual high, iA :)
Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira: The Prophet (SAW) said, "No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that". Bukhari
Have a blessed, productive, successful and peaceful week ahead, iA and remember, Allah loves YOU! :)
