Your own path to God

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. faith 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.

Change

We all want to be better Muslims. Some of us may have more to change than others, however we all have our own individual connection with Allah. We are all on different levels of faith, so changing can sometimes be difficult. One person may pray their 5 salahs on time everyday without doubt but may struggle wearing hijab, whilst another person may be completely covered and dressed in an Islamic manner but struggle to wake up for fajr.
Just because it may be difficult to change it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. If you have the right intention and you’re willing to do something for the sake of Allah, then Insha’allah he will make it easy for you. Start off with something small, and then gradually increase the frequency, until eventually you’re exactly where you wanted to be. Don’t expect people to just immediately put on a hijab for example. It’s difficult. And it takes time, instead rather than judging that person, encourage them. Help one another to be better. Inspire one another. Allah didn’t make this world paradise. It can be a trial, especially when we live in a world where it can be difficult to stand out. But know that wherever you are, Allah is with you. And whatever struggle you go through to be better for the sake of him, he sees and he acknowledges. The most merciful, the most kind, he knows and sees all things, and he knows what’s in our hearts. Allah never leaves you, he may test you, but he is ALWAYS with you.

surah TaHa verse 26 ‘And ease my task for me’

So start off with a small step, and gradually begin to increase the good which you do and Insha’allah Allah will help us to be the best we can be. May Allah guide us and grant us jannah. May he forgive us for all the sins we may have committed knowingly and unknowingly. May he protect us from all evil and bring us closer to those we love. Ameen.
