The tougher the lesson the bigger the blessing. Iv endured pain in my life and even the shortest of journeys seemed like a lifetime. What have I learnt from it? Patience. Everything passes. He watches. He listens. He waits and when He knows the time is right He answers.
He will always answer.
Indeed my Gift is a blessing. Alhumdullilah.
Iv been rushing around lately trying to get everything done on time. Planning my life, giving myself to do lists that it has completely exhausted me out.
Iv been complaining about stupid things that are not done my way, all the small things that don’t matter iv complained about. It’s given me no benefit whatsoever…
Today’s food for thought, ‘live in the moment’ there’s so many things we want that we don’t need so many things we have that we can appreciate and enjoy.
Leave the rest of your worries in God’s hands.
Enjoy life. It’s one of the most beautiful things we have been gifted x
‘And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith] And in yourselves. Then will you not see? And in the heaven is your provision and whatever you are promised.’
(Surah Adh-Dhariyat 51:20-22)
He is the All-Provider of our needs, from the food we eat to the roof over our heads. The Protecter of all the calamities He has saved us from, calamities we were aware and unaware of.
Often we forget that these too are signs from Allah, signs that bring us closer to Him.
May Allah (swt) grant us all Jannatul Firdaus. Ameen.
‘Guide us to the straight path.
The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor…’
(Surah Fatiha 1:6-7)
This is the dua we make several times in our Salaah.
There are many traps placed in our paths and occasionally we stumble, however we must never forget He is Ar Rahman, Ar Raheem. By asking for guidance, for forgiveness we must never give up and keep moving forward. May Allah (swt) guide us all. Ameen.
‘For each one are successive [angels] before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah. Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves…’
(Surah Ar R’ad 13:11)
This verse indicates that Allah’s (swt) perfect justice and wisdom does not change the condition of people from good to bad or from bad to good, from ease to hardship or from hardship to ease, unless we change our condition ourselves first.
We all have it in us to make a difference; we can change so many things that we aren’t happy with purely by making an effort with our own actions and the way we perceive this world. May Allah (swt) help us all. Ameen.
The word happiness has no value until you have experienced sadness. Worldly matters should not take over your life, so what should we do?
‘Oh you who are patient!
Bear a little more
Only a little more remains’ – Ibn Qayyim
