...Don't let them get to you. Keep doing what you have to do and stay focused. If you lose focus then you will lose your goal, your vision, your purpose. Let them lose - they chose that path. Not you. You are destined for greatness. God created you for a greater purpose.
...The only one standing in your way of you achieving your dreams and goals - both deen and duniya - both worship and work/biz - is YOU. As soon as you step out of your own way you'll see all the opportunities in front of you. Fear will always keep you paralysed. How did you think I launched four businesses and countless studies/courses? You think I wasn't afraid? I said; 'NO! I will NOT be afraid - God is with me and each step is a lesson in life'. Step out of your own way today and see what greatness God Almighty created you for! :)
...Life is a journey - not a destination. Don't get too comfortable that you're not ready for your next life. Prepare in this life. Ready? Begin, bismillah! :)
...In the light of the current events which have taken place in Gaza and continue to happen across the globe, there is a lesson to learn. And that lesson is one of urgency. Do not give up on your daily prayers, daily Qur'an recitation and study, daily dhikr, daily duas morning and evening. No excuses and 'i'm busy with x, y and z' is not an excuse - remember who it is that gave you this life in the first place and know that to Him is our return! Have a sense of urgency in our daily ibaadah - worship - and become active in helping those around us. Firstly help yourselves, study hard at school, college, university. Education does not stop there! You are never, ever too old to learn or study! Learn every single day. Yes passion is excellent but use passion in the correct way. Be prepared. Have a plan. Work hard. Don't become keyboard warriors but true warriors of this beautiful deen Islam! ♥
We all want to be successful in our deen and duniya so we can attain the best spot in the akhirah. But to become successful we have to work night and day and put in 150% - there's no short cut to true success. And a key tool you need is 'Focus'. So focus on the right things. And yes we can do it - even though we have a billion things going on. How? The Prophet (pbuh) said; "Amongst the beautiful (characteristics) of a person's Islam is that he pays no heed to that which does not concern him." Tirmidhi. Now THAT is inspiration and motivation!
There's a Genius lying dormant within each of us. Go on and find that genius within. Even if everyone is against you - its ok. You ride it solo. Set your sails high and find that genius. And when you find then give thanks to God because when everyone else turned their back on you - He (swt) made sure your boat stayed afloat and He (swt) helped you find the genius He (swt) created! :) ♥
...Smile your way through the storm because tears will just add to the floods and eventually drown us. Let the storm dry with your smile, your faith, your courage and your belief. Because it will lead you towards your destiny :)
On behalf of the entire We Be Inspired family across the globe - have a fabuloso 'Eid Mabrook!'
May Allah (swt) bless y'all on this blessed day and your loved ones. My salaam, love and duas to them all!.
On this blessed day raise your hands in the sky to make dua for those less fortunate and with no family.
May Allah's infinite mercy shower upon them, ameen!
Nadia :) ♥
...'I asked Allah for strength and Allah gave me difficulties to make me strong. I asked Allah for wisdom and Allah gave me problems to solve. I asked Allah for courage and Allah gave me obstacles to overcome. I asked Allah for love and Allah gave me troubled people to help. I asked Allah for favours and Allah gave me opportunities. Maybe I received nothing I wanted, but I received everything I needed.'
Always choose to heal, not to hurt;
To forgive, not to despise;
To smile, not to frown;
To love, not to hate ...
At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built;
Not what we had, but what we shared;
Not our competence, but our character;
Not our success, but our significance ...
