...Here's to wishing YOU and your loved ones a very happy 2014! :)
Each moment is our only moment that knows the moment that was, is and will be - so each moment make the most of what you have.
God has chosen us to do great things for humanity and there is something special inside of YOU.
Let's do this and let's rock out 2014.
"The hearts of the righteous people are filled with longing, lamenting from the pain of departure. How can a believer not shed tears upon its [Ramadhaan] departure when he does not know if he will live to see it again? O Ramadhaan! Be gentle, the tears of your lovers are pouring out. Their hearts are torn from the pain of your departure." Ibn Rajab al Hanbali
...Reminders benefit the believers. Become a student of knowledge for life and seek out reminders - because at each step they will keep you in check. Become a student of knowledge in your field - whatever field that may be. Continuously read books, journals and articles to stay up-to-date. Study does not stop at school/college/university - become a life-long student. Why just look at our pious predecessors and be in awe? Aspire to be like them! Use all the resources God has given you. Be a Genius. Be the Best. You are the Best! As they say; 'Aspire to Inspire until you Expire!' :)
..."In life it is easy to run but hard to face a difficulty!"
Been there and done that!
But eventually there comes a time when you have to stop running and just deal with it!
Know that as humans we will have fear and doubt, however The Almighty says, "The believers are those whose hearts tremble when Allah is mentioned, whose faith is increased when His Signsare mentioned to them, and who put their trust in their Lord."(8:2)
So let's put our trust in our Rabb always and turn to Him for guidance and help insha'Allah.
And if you are facing a difficulty - then this time don't run, step up to it and deal with it!
[Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).]'' (3:173)
May Allah make everyone's difficulty easy - ameen!
We all go through daily ups and downs - its life.
Its ok to let those emotions out - but let's not wallow in it for too long - because if we do then we lose focus on all the good we've been blessed with.
..."So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For you will gain the upper hand if you are indeed true believers." (Ali Imran 3:139)
He who has no one has Allah and he who has Allah has everything! Keep faith in Allah as He has Power over All! :)
