Trusting Allah 

sometimes we feel as if there isn’t much hope left for us or the people around us. That there is something in our life that is failing, and in that we feel as if we are failing ourselves or letting others down. It’s in times like this that it is crucial to remember your Lord, and to remember that he doesn’t give us more than we can handle. He may test you, he may let you taste the bitterness, but never is it more than you can bare. Remember, he does this to test us. Perhaps to remind us that we need him more than we need anything worldly. Perhaps to remind us who our creator is. To remind us that the only one who can truly understand what lies in our hearts is the one who created it. 

So trust him. Put trust in what he has given you, and appreciate all he has given you. If a teacher only gave you basic questions in class, you would never learn how to answer questions of a higher level. Similarly Allah tests those who are closer to him. Once you lose Allah you lose all you have. You may still remain with materialistic values, but your heart will never feel the same contentment and peace it feels when you’re connected to Allah. So remember to trust him. Put trust in his plan. Everything happens for a reason. As people, the best we can do is work hard and ask him for what it is we want. He is the creator of all things, the most gracious, the most merciful, the most high. When you take a step toward Allah he comes running toward you – trust him. Create a connection with Allah, and turn to him.

May Allah guide us and grant us jannah. May he forgive us for all the wrong we may do. May he bring us closer to those we love and protect us from all evil. May he make us successful in this life and in the hereafter.  Ameen.

Faith in Allah

Having faith in Allah is believing that he is in control of what happens in our lives. We’ve got to remember that things happen for a reason and if our belief in Allah is evidently there then we have to trust him. Things might not always go to plan but believe in him and tell him what it is you’re working for and know whatever happens after that, is for the best. We need to believe that he is the one who sees everything we do. He knows our intentions and he knows what our hearts yearn for. He understands that we aren’t perfect human beings and he understands that we we have overpowering emotions, and that we make mistakes. But learn from those mistakes. Understand that Allah is with you wherever you are. He knows how you feel and what you’re thinking. He knows what it is you want but he will still listen when you ask him. He wants you to ask of him more. To believe in him to fully put your heart in his hands. And remember if you have Allah in your heart, you have everything you need to get what it is that you want in this life and in the hereafter. You just have to work toward it and pray for it.
Nobody promises that it will be easy. But having faith in him is moving forward even when you’re scared or unsure of what might happen. Follow your heart and keep praying and Insha’Allah you’ll get to where it is you want to be. Just have faith and trust in Allah. Stay patient with prayer and keep asking him. Constantly. Talk to him when you’re down, call upon your creator, because he will respond. Even if you don’t see it immediately know that he is there closer to you than your jugular vein so believe in him. You may not always be feeling particularly ‘religious’, and it’s normal for your faith to fluctuate, but if you let that faith in Allah remain in your heart no matter what, there is hope for you. Just pray and you’ll find that your closeness to Allah will get better. And that feeling of peace that Allah will bring to you when you trust him during hardship is something truly indescribable. You’ll only know once you’ve experienced it. The love of Allah is irreplaceable. So treasure it and work toward it and Insha’Allah , with his help, we will get where we need to be and we will achieve what it is we want to.
May Allah guide us and grant us jannah. May he forgive us for all the wrong we may have done. May he help us become successful in this life and in the hereafter. May he protect us from the evils of this world, the hellfire, and the deceptions of shaytan. May he grant our parents the highest of Jannah and may he give us strength to face the challenges of this world. Ameen.

Hope after Failure

trust

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

Don’t be sad, Allah is with us (Quran 9;40)

A world of deception

We live in a world filled with lies, something that was set up to make us fall down. To test us. A place where everything that seems to be bad can be seen as fun and good, and everything that is good can be seen as lame. We’re put in a place where theres a lot against us. A place where people live as if there is nothing left after death. But the truth is that this life is only temporary. A world made by The Almighty to test us. This world is made to knock you down, it was made to test your faith in Allah, to test your love for him. filled with deceptions of the shaytan, but keep strong in the faith of Allah. Hold on tightly to his rope, and when you feel yourself slipping too far into the dunya, then read quran. Read it in a language that you understand, listen to it. The words of your lord in a book sent to guide mankind. Let his holy text enter your heart and bring you back to the reality that your worldly indulgences aren’t forever.

It can be dangerous to fall too far into this dunya because eventually you will slip away from the one who created you. Remember him often, and remember him in all you do. Establish your salah to avoid forgetting your purpose in this life. Remember where you came from, remember who controls the breaths you take and who is in control of everything you have. Talk to your creator, one of the best parts of islam is that you have your creator closer to you than your jugular vein, a lord you can talk to about anything, any time of the day, and the best thing is that he already knows what you’re going to say. Just remember Allah in your daily life and avoid things that take you away from him. He is the one that judges you when your book of deeds are opened. So please him before anyone else. Don’t let this worldly life make you forget your true purpose.

Quran-Guidance-to-humanity

Allah may test you, but he is always close to you. He sent us the Quran and the prophet (pbuh) as a guidance, so use them. Ask Allah for strength and guidance, in a world filled with deceptions. Stay strong in your faith and remember that just because the whole world may be doing something wrong, it doesn’t make it right. May Allah guide us and grant us Jannah. May he make us successful in all we do and give us the best in this life and in the hereafter. May he forgive all our sins and bring us closer to those we love. May he help us to do good and bring us closer to him. Ameen.

Thankful

 Being thankful isn’t always so common. We usually pray our most when were in need of something or when were in trouble, then once the almighty clears our path for us, we can slowly begin to decrease our concentration in prayer. But we shouldn’t. We should remember what Allah has done for us, all he has given us, and all he has blessed us with. Allah has blessed us with Islam, and with the knowledge that he is the one, the all hearing, the all seeing, the all knowing, and his attributes go on. 

Allah is the one who puts you in the position you are in, and even though that may be difficult, thank him for everything he has blessed you with alongside that, then ask him for his help and ask of him. your lord always hears you, and he loves you to ask of him and to be thankful to him. No matter how difficult a situation may be thank Allah for all the blessings he’s given you, and if you feel like you have nothing worldly to be thankful for, thank him for blessing you with iman and faith. He has chosen you to be guided, he has given you a chance to get to Jannah, so don’t blow that chance.

‘The beautiful thing about communicating with your lord is that you don’t always have to put your feelings into words.’

 

Allah has picked you to follow islam and he has given you guidance to do so, to make it easy. So thank him. Thank him for the Quran and all it contains, its help, its guidance, its comfort, its hope. Thank him for the gift of Salah, being able to talk to your lord 5 times a day. Thank him for the power of dua, communicating with your creator any time you want and anywhere you want, whatever state you’re in. Thank him for being able to breathe, for life. Thank him for the people you love and ask him to keep those people close to you and to always keep those people happy. Thank him for guiding you and making you able to ask of him. Glorify and worship Allah in a way that will make your life content. Seek happiness and peace through his guidance, and seek comfort through prayer. Thank him for bringing you out of the darkness and into the light, thank him for helping you when you were at your lowest point, and thank him for being there when everyone else failed to soothe your aching heart. 

Alhamdulillah_Islamic-Calligraphy-art

Alhamdulillah

Remember everything happens by his will, you can ask him of what you want and you can tell him what it is you’re feeling. and the amazing thing is, he already knows what it is you’re going to ask of, but he wants you to talk to him. Subhanallah. May Allah guide us and grant us Jannah. May he forgive us for all the wrong we may have done and protect us from all evil. May he bring us closer to those we love and may he help the muslim ummah come together. Ameen.

Sometimes one prayer changes everything

Hope in prayer is what I’ve recently discovered. The hope in Allah which is never lost, and the love he has for us. Those tears that come down your cheeks in the midst of prayer are counted. Those pleads to your lord that you say repetitively are heard. Those silent prayers which come from your heart when walking down the street are listened to. All by the one who created you. Subhanallah.

It might take more than one prayer to change something, and it make take time, but know he hears you. Even when all feels lost, Allah is with you wherever you are. He provides us with the knowledge that we can communicate with him at any time. Allahuakbar. He is there for you on the darkest of nights, he is there for you when you have committed a big sin and you want forgiveness, he is there for you when you need help, he is there for you when you need peace, and when all hope is lost he is there to inspire hope. He tells us to never lose hope in his mercy.

'So remember me; I will remember you. And be grateful to me and do not deny me' -Al-Baqarah 2:152

‘So remember me; I will remember you. And be grateful to me and do not deny me’ -Al-Baqarah 2:152

Speak to your creator, and tell him what you want, tell him what you need, and tell him often. Show your lord how much you want through communicating with him. Through remembrance of him. After your five daily prayers raise your hands to him, and ask him what it is that you need, what you desire, what you want achieve. Then thank him for all he has blessed you with. Allah never ignores the call of a believer. He never ignores a call to him. Stay patient with dua, things might not change overnight, but pray with the knowledge that Allah the most merciful, the most kind hears you. Your every prayer, your every move, your every tear, he knows.

Remember to thank him for all he has blessed you with, because the truth is we would be lost without him, we would be sucked into the deceptions of this world and we would be enticed into the plans of the shaytaan. So being able to pray to him and being aware of him is a blessing in itself. Thank Allah for blessing you with iman, and islam. Thank him for everything you have, and ask him for what you want. Your lord is there for you.

May Allah guide us and grant us Jannah. May he forgive us and bless us in all we do. May he bring us closer to the ones we love. May he help those in need and may he protect us from all evil. Ameen.
