The life in this world seems to have a magnetic power that can draw us in easily, sometimes without us even realising. It can devour the heart with materialistic items and temporary affairs that we start to feel attached to. It’s dangerously attractive to us and makes us vulnerable to the temptations of shaytan. Unfortunately, a lot of the time, people tend to fall so hard after the desires of this world that they forget their true purpose. They forget who put whatever they have before them, they forget the one that gives them the ability to breathe. Allah. And once you forget Allah, you’ll lose all blessing and good in what you do.
We need to remember him in all we do, and we need to remember to thank him for all we have, in order to stop us from falling for the deceptions of shaytan. Allah is testing us. No matter what may happen, it happens for a reason. We have to keep trust in Allah and we need to stay strong in our faith in order to keep islam in our hearts. It’s easy to become sidetracked with all that life throws at us, but find it with in yourself to look for goodness in everything, and no matter what situation you find yourself in, keep asking Allah to guide you toward what is right. Don’t feel like he won’t listen because you may have sinned too much. Ask for forgiveness, forgive yourself, and ask for help and guidance from your creator. The one you can be completely vulnerable and open with. The all knowing, the most merciful, the most kind.
Think before you act, and learn to live rather than just being alive by keeping Islam close to your heart.
May Allah guide us and grant us jannah. May he forgive us for all we may have done. May he help us to be successful in this life and in the hereafter, and may he protect us from all evil. May he bring us closer to those we love and save us from the fire. Ameen.
‘Remember me and I will remember you’ (quran 2:152)
Every individual has their own story, their own views on life, and their own unique connection with god. Some may have not found their path to Allah yet, and some may have found their deepest connection with their lord earlier than others. You can find Allah through anything; sometimes he may test you to bring you back to him, you may find him through simply seeing something that inspires you, even through the acts of someone else. However you may find a path to your creator, let it be a reminder for you. When you’re feeling your faith is dipping, remind yourself of how Allah brought you closer to him. Remind yourself that no matter what there is always hope for you. Even if you feel like your sins have overtaken the good within you, know that Allah is all forgiving. Just believe in him, and repent, and if you’re sincere, you’re likely to feel a connection with your creator that nothing can compare to. Remember him in all you do, and when you feel like you’re slipping into the desires of this world too much, go back to that spot where you pray, and remember him, how your lord saved you when you fell and hit the lowest points, how he inspired hope in you after you prayed, how he forgives when you sin, how he’s there for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Allah is always there for you, watching you, knowing of every breath you take. Thank Allah for bringing you back into the light when you were lost in darkness. Its normal for your faith to feel like its dipping. Its unlikely that its always at a high point, but as long as you try, and you don’t let yourself fall into the likes of this world too much, insha’allah Allah will save us. You may find that the one big sin you committed, is the one thing that brought you back to Allah in the end. So we shouldn’t judge someone based on their sins, because most of us may have a past. We can only pray for them and offer them a friend who will help guide them, because that could be all they need. As a muslim ummah we should be helping one another become better, rather than judging and dividing ourselves.
May Allah guide us and grant us Jannah. May he help us in all we do and grant us success in this world and in the hereafter. May he bring us closer to those we love and forgive all the sins we may have committed. Ameen
Here are 2 of my favourite videos on youtube that never fail to inspire faith in me when I’m feeling a little low.
There will always be things that don’t go the way we may have hoped. There will always be failures in life, but those fails only teach us. They make us stronger and allow us to learn from our mistakes. So they shouldn’t be seen as failures, rather as attempts. Maybe they teach you something, and maybe they reveal mistakes that you can then work upon. Either way we shouldn’t let our failures dishearten us. It can be difficult when your efforts seem to have not payed off, and it can be upsetting and frustrating, but Allah is always with you. He puts us in situations for a reason, you just have to trust him. And even if you do want to cry then cry in your prayers. Allah will listen to you, he won’t ignore your call. He is there for you all the time, so put your trust in him. Confide in your creator, the one who has power over all.
When you have failed, ask Allah for help and guidance, and work upon rectifying your mistakes. Its not the end of the world if you fail, theres always a second option. Even if that second option isn’t what you wanted, remember your lord in everything you do, and insha’allah he will make it easy for you. Ask Allah for what you want, and thank him for all that he has given you. They say to never underestimate the power of dua, and its true. You may feel like your dua’s aren’t being accepted right now, but think about it. Allah is listening to everything you’re saying, he knows exactly how your feeling when nobody else does, and he can hear everything you say. Subhanallah. So talk to your lord and ask him for help for guidance and for direction, and insha’allah he will guide us towards whats best. Never let your failures doubt your trust in Allah, because it could just be a test from him, to test your faith. So turn to him and ask of him more, tell your lord what you want because Allah loves those who remember him.
Don’t be sad, Allah is with us (Quran 9;40)
The one who is there for you day and night. The one who’s contact line is never busy, nor unavailable. The one who when called upon, can go from making you feel upset and like the world is on your shoulders, to at peace and relaxed. The one who can forgive the most scarring sins. The one who offers you the most soothing comfort. The one who is capable of giving you everything you ask for. The one who can answer your calls without you hearing a voice. The one who is the best of helpers. The one you can turn to no matter what. The one who is always close to you. The one who knows you better than you know yourself. The one who understands you more than any other being. The one who can see deep into your heart. The creator of all things, the most merciful, the most kind. Allah.
He is the one who can help you in all situations, the one who can offer you the best of comfort. When you’re crying, cry to him. Put your forehead to the ground and in that moment let yourself open up to your creator. Be vulnerable, and ask him for all that you want. Thank him. And Insha’allah you will find that when you’ve finished that prayer, that conversation with your lord, you will feel at peace within. A kind of peace that only comes from him. So ask of your lord. Thank him. And remember him often. Allah is the most forgiving, the most merciful, the most kind. So ask him to bring you closer to him.
May Allah guide us and grant us jannah. May he forgive us for all our sins. May he bring us closer to those we love. May he lighten our hearts with imaan. May he protect us from all evil and save us from the fire. Ameen.
