Sunday: Reflection Moment...
...It's the last day of June - 6 months of this year already gone. Now is the time to have a quick look at the goals you set for this year. Be realistic. Things happen. I've completed some - and some re-starting from tomorrow insha'Allah (like my studies) and some working on. We are a working progress. Let this be a reflection moment and let this be the trigger to get us focused again and back on track insha'Allah. Always keep the end in mind - Jannah al-Firdaus
...Never undervalue yourself, or what you know or your knowledge or skills and never, ever underestimate yourself. God has blessed you and is continuing to bless you and He has created you for greatness. Now stop smiling and go make your dreams a reality because if i can then so can YOU! :)
If you want to make your dreams a reality, if you want to change your life then sometimes you have to change your friends!
Wednesday: Your Dreams...
Do YOU want YOUR dreams to become a reality?
"Some people dream of success, others stay awake and achieve it." Bev James
If YOU believe it then YOU can achieve it! Work hard at it and YOU will succeed at it - insha'Allah! :)
Without hope & failure we wouldn't act and make things happen - we wouldn't allow our dreams to become a reality and we wouldn't even try...
..."By seeing the seed of failure in every success, we remain humble. By seeing the seed of success in every failure we remain hopeful." Unknown
Hope & failure keep us going, its what helps us reach our ultimate destiny.
Stay Hopeful in Allah's help, mercy and His will - as He will help you reach your destiny iA!
Thursday: Your Reality
...Don't let anyone else's negative words, thoughts, actions and beliefs become your reality - for the One who created You believes in you and that's all that matters - so if He (swt) believes in you, then it's time for you to believe in YOU! Others perception about you is not your reality. Remember - you have One Life and One Chance in this world to make your dreams a reality and always keep your One Vision in mind - Jannah al-Firdaus! ♡
'Obstacles are lessons in Disguise!'.
So don't worry if it falls apart the first time round - there was a reason why it fell apart and there are lessons to learn.
These obstacles actually teach us valuable lessons and open up new doors for us!
Become the CEO of YOU!
Who else is going to take personal responsibility for all areas of YOUR LIFE, except YOU?
Become the best version of YOU today - starting NOW!
That is the only way to be happy and achieve all that you were created to achieve.
Always remember that we have to take the first step and then Allah (swt) will put barakah in all our endeavours.
So say Bismillah and begin your journey. My duas are with YOU!
Do you remember when you were little and you had a dream to be something or someone great?
You knew without a shadow of doubt that you were special??
Forgotten your childhood dreams and all that you planned and imagined you would be one day???
You can still be it if only you allow yourself and give yourself permission to be the best version of you.
Those dreams you had as a child were not in vain but were trying to help you on your journey as you got older.
Dream again - this time with your eyes open - and make your dreams come true.
Allah is with you not against you!
"You say that you are just a body, but inside of you is something greater than the Universe." Imam Shafi (rahimullah)
You can also be someone great or achieve something great. Don't just be inspired by our glorious past and the giants of Islam - but now its your turn to write history, to make history and to live history!
Tuesday: Reality Bites!
Don’t look at expressions on faces. Don’t listen to what is said with tongues. Don’t let tears sway you. They are all but products of human skin. It changes everyday. Look instead for what is under the skin. Not the heart either, as it also fluctuates, nor the mind, as it changes its point of view whenever it changes its perspective. Moreover, the mind may accept at present what it denied in the past. Even scientists change their theories.
No, my son! If you want to understand a human, look at his or her action in a moment of free choice. Just then you will get very surprised as you may see a saint prostituting, and a whore praying! You may find a physician drinking poison, and you may get shocked by your friend stabbing your back, while your enemy saving you! You may see a servant who acts as noble as a master, and a master acts as despicable as the lowest servant! You may see kings taking bribes and wretches giving charity.
Look at man when there is no fear to stop him; when caution sleeps, desire gets satisfied and barriers fall. Just then you can see man’s reality: walking on four legs like an animal, or flying like an angel, or creeping like a snake, or eating mud like worms.
