What is our 'Ultimate Purpose' - the reason we were created? Always wondered what you're doing here on the planet, got confused with daily happenings, uneasy, unsure and need answers?
Well here it is - the reason why Allah created us...
"And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone)" [Qur'an 51:56]
And that's it! If we can understand and master our Ultimate Purpose - then everything else in life will work out just fine iA!
...Just because you're different and not like your family and friends doesn't mean you're a weirdo or a freak! It means you've embraced your uniqueness. You were born an original, live an original and die an original. There's a special quality Allah has created in you that He hasn't created in someone else. Embrace it! And iA if you do then you'll be the happiest ever! :)
...What we give we get! Respect others and you will be respected. Love and you'll be loved. Forgive and you'll be forgiven. You see, in life what we give we receive. If you're always negative you'll always attract negative - it starts with ourselves - let's stop giving ourselves excuses and let's start making positive changes in our lives iA. Whose ready to become the better version of themselves - starting right NOW? :)
...Don't compare yourself to anyone except yourself. Today make a promise that you will work on all areas in your life and improve - you will do better than what you do because you can do better iA - and you will make positive changes in your life. In the end it's just between you and God. There is only one of you - so why waste your life trying to be like someone else. Whatever you do - today you will do better iA!
...What stops us from the remembrance of Allah? When our hearts become preoccupied with other than Allah! If we hand our heart over to Allah then He will inspire us to solutions to our problems and if we keep firm faith in Him then we can balance all our other relations. Allah never said don't benefit from this world - He simply said worship Him alone. Ya Rabbi grant our hearts and souls comfort and never leave us alone for even a moment - only You can help us and guide us - ameen ♥
...Time is ticking - each moment is our only moment - let's turn to Allah with tauba, istigfaar and hope NOW before we return to Him. Many have passed before us - many are passing as I write these words. Our ultimate purpose is to worship Allah alone and our unique purpose (our careers, jobs, hobbies, biz, daily life) should be aligned with worshipping Him alone - because that is true happiness and success both in this world and next. If we walk to Him, He runs to us - what are we waiting for?
...Always keep a pen and paper handy. Always be ready to seek knowledge and apply. Always be curious and excited to learn. Always be inspired and motivated by those who are seeking. Always be ready to read and study - become studious - both deen and duniya. Study Islamic knowledge daily - even half an hour a day - as well as your secular studies. Study and review your books and notes. Get studious friends. Be curious when out and about - ponder and reflect upon Allah's creation - it will bring you closer to Him (swt). Let's create a studious routine so we are always seeking, understanding, applying and bettering ourselves - and then teaching it to our family/friends insha'Allah! :)
...Don't give up, no matter how difficult or hard it seems. Because only through hardships come ease and after every dark night there is a bright day ahead. Trust the Creator of the heavens and the earth. Hold on to Him - even through the painful moments - Hold on - if I hadn't then today I wouldn't be here - He bestowed His mercy upon me - He will bestow His mercy on You - walk to Him - He's waiting.
Allah's promise is true - hold on to the rope of Allah. Your duas will be answered - all in their own sweet time. Don't give up hope and do not despair of Allah's mercy - who do we have besides Allah? So let's not turn our backs on Him for as long as we walk to Him, He shall run to us and console us - He is the controller of hearts - He'll make it ok...
...We've all been misunderstood in life. Why? Because we're all 'Uniquely Different!' Let's spend some time understanding each other and not judging or labelling. Remember, no matter what someone's background, we are all human created by the One God - that's our connection. If we can all work on this little by little then we can help our world heal from all the discrimination iA.
