...We always talk about following the Sunnah and we point fingers at others who don't follow it. However, how much of the Sunnah do we really know and practice? How much do we actually know about our beloved Rasool Allah? This Rabi-ul-Awwal pick up a seerah book, attend a seerah course or conference and find out about the 'Chosen One' - Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and live a true Muslim life upon Qur'an and Sunnah ♥
We all love our friendships and relationships. We work on them daily because we believe they make us happy, whole and complete. And we believe they give the best advice! But there's one relationship we ignore on a daily and we need to work on daily because it gives us the best advice daily. This relationship if with a special Book. Allah is talking to us and advising us. Yet we fail to take its advice. Ask yourself; 'Have I opened this Book today and read the Qur'an and what is my relationship with the Qur'an?' Its not too late - yet. Close facebook and go open the Qur'an Book and immerse yourself in the words of Allah.
In today's world we are too competitive.
Healthy competition is good. It keeps those creative juices flowing.
But when all our energy is focused on just competing with others then we don't live our own lives fully.
Don't compete with others but compete with yourself.
Whatever you do in your deen or duniya start doing more. Add a little on each day. If you pray all your fard then start praying your sunnah. Compete with yourself to better yourself. Look up to those who are doing more and better than you. Be inspired and motivated by them to create your own perfect life and to prepare for your best akhirah iA.
You only have one life in this world - don't waste it competing and living someone else's - be the best version of YOU! Give 150% to everything you do.
Are YOU a 'Student of Knowledge'? We all are to some degree - however big or small. If you work on this friendship and stay loyal it will be with you always insha'Allah!
"Knowledge (Ilm) is a comforting friend in times of loneliness, it is the best companion during travels, & it is the inner friend who speaks to you in your privacy." Mua’dh ibn Jabal (RA)
Cherish your friend :)
...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.
