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!
...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! :)
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 all do...
Then quit complaining!
Because the more you complain the more negative energy you create around yourself.
Sometimes we have to accept 'Qadr-Allah' and we have to be proactive in looking for an alternative solution.
Take any situation you're in - if it hasn't worked just accept its Qadr-Allah and focus on how to move forward.
Because if we allow ourselves to wallow in complaints then we'll never see the next opportunity.
After all we do ask Allah to bless us with good and keep bad away - then why complain?
Its ok to have a bit of a 'pitty-party' to let the emotions out, but don't allow yourself to drown in it - instead be ready to swim to new opportunities insha'Allah.
As some wise person once-upon-a-time said; 'When one door closes in life - another opens!'.
Be focused and alert so you see the next opportunity iA!
