When dreams die

I know it’s harder when the door has been completely shut on you. That path is not the path you can take or even attempt to. You cannot reach out or hope to find a new way because it’s no longer there. I know the feeling of hopeless demise of dreams. But you are alive, you can have new dreams. Carve new paths for yourself. If something you wanted to do didn’t work, find something better to do. Doing good is always an option so forget the bad that happened to you and go out and do good. For indeed “He is the best of planners.”

“..but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.” [Qur’an, 3:54]

Measured Chaos

Sometimes it may feel like
Your world is in chaos
But truth be told
Life is chaos
You just have to live it the best you can
With the best balance you can
Realizing that too much of anything is bad
And too little of anything is bad
That is why fear is a constant reminder with faith
So we don’t take for granted our blessings
Nor do we live in absolute fear of the Most Generous
Focus on balance
And the world around you will balance and measure itself

“O mankind, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Generous, Who created you, proportioned you, and balanced you?” [Qur’an, 82:6-7]

“The heart in its journey towards Allah (SWT), is like a bird whose head is love, and hope and fear are its two wings.”

Imam Ibn ul Qayyim al Jawziyyah

Living life with Intention & Action

What does it mean to live life with intention?

Imagine taking a deep breath with an abundance of gratitude, realizing that something that comes so naturally can be taken away so easily.

Imagine breathing with intention. Now Imagine using this gift to live your life with purpose and meaning.

Once we realize how valuable our time is, we will want to use it to the best of our ability, removing distractions, and focusing on positivity, and wanting to do good in the world In’shaa’Allah. We all want to leave a legacy behind. Make it a good one In’shaa’Allah.

There are two blessings which many people lose: (They are) Health and free time for doing good.” Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Happy New Year

If 2020 has taught us anything it is that compassion for other human beings was our greatest struggle and our greatest achievement as humanity. We may have empathy, an innate ability to feel for another person, but to help another person reach their potential, or give away our selfish nature in order to provide for another is a struggle we must all live with and work on.

“Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority.” They said, “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?” Allah said, “Indeed, I know that which you do not know.” [Qur’an, 2:30]
