Are you alone....Think again...x

What are the first words you utter every morning?
Is it Alhamdulillah or is it, I need to wash the windows today.
Do you want to be successful in this life and the next?
Then maybe you need to take a look at your life and make some changes.

Do you constantly remember  Allah (SWT) or are you too busy worrying about duniyah matters? We have become such a self obsessed nation that we are slowing moving away from the deen without even realising.
Allah (SWT) has truly blessed us with this beautiful deen of His but are we grateful. Do with give back to Him what we owe?
On this beautiful day of Jummah, remember...

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) mentioned Friday and said: “On this day there is an hour when no Muslim slave stands and prays and asks Allaah for something, but Allaah will give it to him,” and he gestured with his hand to indicate that whatever he asks fo , is as nothing to Allaah. (Narrated by al-Bukhaari)

Dua is the weapon of the believer, it can remove you from many, many difficulties.
When you feel low or anxious then remember Allah fist and foremost and repeat the following dua:

Allaahumma 'innee 'a'oothu bika minal-hammi walhazani, wal'ajzi walkasali, walbukhli waljubni, wa dhala'id-dayni wa ghalabatir-rijaal .
O Allah , I seek refuge in you from grief and sadness, from weakness and from laziness, from miserliness and from cowardice, from being overcome by debt and overpowered by men (i .e . others).
Reference: Al-Bukhari 7/158. See also Al-Asqalani, Fathul-Bari 11/173.

Laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahul-'Adheemul-Haleem, laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu Rabbul-'Arshil-'Adheem, laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu Rabbus-samaawaati wa Rabbul-'ardhi wa Rabbul-'Arshil-Kareem .
There is none worthy of worship but Allah the Mighty, the Forbearing. There is none worthy of worship but Allah, Lord of the Magnificent Throne. There is none worthy of worship but Allah, Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth, and Lord of the Noble Throne.
Reference: Al-Bukhari 8/154, Muslim 4/2092

We all have good and bad days, that's how we are designed, but it's how you deal with the different situations in life that really matters.
When something good happens we say Alhamdulillah, when something bad happens we still say Alhamdulillah for Allah is reminding us that we worship Him alone and even though we may have made a mistake, He is bringing us back to Him through this test.
Whatever hardship we may be facing, if we are patient and truly believe that He is there for us, then what more do we need.
Never let your tongue and your mind stop remembering Allah and Praising Him.
Before you make a decision think, will it please or displease Allah (SWT) 

Make that change today, don't wait until tomorrow, for who knows if we will even be here tomorrow, renew your intention, do plenty of Istigfar and return to Him. 
Only He can forgive our sins and rectify our shortcomings. Never feel that you have done so much bad that He will never forgive you. 
He is The Most Merciful and The Most Kind.
Just two of His beautiful names and attributes.
I ask Allah (SWT) to forgive all our mistakes, whether intentional or unintentional, place light in our hearts and our grave. Fill our hearts with Love for Him, make our deeds pleasing to Him alone and rectify our many, many shortcomings. 
I love you for His sake and may he accept our simple efforts for His sake.
Any good is from Allah (SWT) and any mistake is from myself.

Fi aman Illah

A short beneficial reminder....x

Masha'Allah I just read this near the end of the Queens of Islam lecture. I don't know who wrote it but it's so beautiful: So I'm sending it to all my beautiful sisters....

The believing woman is never down for long. She is like a willow under a strong wind, she will bend to breaking point but will stay whole. 
She'll sail sail against the tides and storms, she may get bruised from life, but she'll never give up.
Because she knows Allah will not give more than she can bear, she knows her worth and even if she is walked upon or laughed at, No one can take away her dignity, as her refuge is with Allah...Subhan'Allah....x
