Change the way how you use your time and effort. Time is so damn important, use the time effectively. You have to consider your time as the most precious recourse there is. Be very careful on how we manage time, be afraid to waste your time.
Use your time effectively. Value your time.
Change the routines you currently have going on, because your still stuck in the same lousy grey zone of not moving forward or being happy. Keep building yourself, take greater and greater challenges
Stop setting tiny goals! Push for those dreams you’ve always wanted, the enormous dreams that give the chills down your spine, the one’s that make you rude and hide from being afraid.
The Most important thing I had to change, is the way I think, the way I talk to myself.
Drop those negative thoughts, drop the negative voice talking to you. It was very hard for me to stay and remain positive. It took weeks and months.
The way we think is very very important!
If you don’t think big, how do you expect to get big
Change can branch out into many aspects. Change the things that you need. These are the few things I had to change in my life to get to where I am today. Anything and Everything that is stopping you, CHANGE.
We push forward and adapt to the new change.
The next verse tells us: “And, out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: ‘My Lord! Bestow on them your Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood’” (17:24). The phrase“lower to them the wing of humility” has been interpreted as an image of the way birds spread their wings out of protection and love for their young. Our treatment of our parents is shown in the same way: we should be humble, respectful, and loving towards them.
Our mothers deserve the utmost respect and good treatment, and there is no excuse otherwise. We are told this three times over. In another narration, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said that paradise lies under the feet of the mother. This further reiterates the fact that our mothers are to be the most revered and cared for people in our lives. In yet another saying, we are told that a man did the entire pilgrimage, Hajj, with his elderly mother on his back. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) told him that this did not even repay his mother for a single kick the man gave his mother while she was bearing him in the womb.
All in the name of a New Year:
Dressed in a black leather mini skirt,a shimmery silver top and Jimmy choo heels she is ready for the new years eve party at the hotest night club in town.How could she miss out on the most happening party of the year,on the most happening night of the year so she quickly covers herself up with an abaaya and hijaab before making salaam to her unsuspecting parents and rushes out the door as they think she is going for a sleepover at her cousin’s apartment.She removes her abaaya and hijaab as well as her haayah as soon as she enters her friends car.The party was as awesome as she expected and after trying an attractive looking alcoholic drink or two she was ready to dance the year away.A few minutes later she passed out only to be woken up the next morning,in a strange car,next to a strange man,her clothes had been stripped off as well as her dignity.All in the name of celebrating the new year.
A loving father purchases the lastest bike for his son as he was so proud of his achievements at school.He picked out a helmet in his son’s favourite colour and engraved daddy loves you on it.He wanted to suprise his only child and called his beautiful wife to let her know he will be coming home shortly.As he was making his way home he noticed a few guys in the parking area starting their new years eve celebrations early by drinking beers and dancing.He ignored them and drove past.He switched on his favourite Surah Yaseen and was reciting it when a van came crashing into his car alas he did not return home but returned to his creator.The police informed his wife and now orphan child that their loved one was killed by a drunk driver.All in the name of celebrating the new year.
A newly married couple are invited to attend a new years eve beach party with a group of friends and they decide to go.The cool colour co-ordinated couple sit together near a bonfire on the sea shore smoking weed with their friends and laughing the year away.At the stroke of 12 when everybody starts wishing each other a happy New year a friend who was high went too far by not only wishing the new bride but kissing her.This enraged her husband who was also intoxicated and a huge fight broke out,a trigger was pulled and she is now a new widow.All in the name of celebrating the new year.
He is a young hafiz of the Quraan hence he was hesitant on going to his friends house party on New years eve yet he reluctantly agreed.He was feeling awkward as there were girls dancing provocatively.He was not familiar with any of the girls and asked his friend as to why he invited girls.His friend laughed and hinted that these were no ordinary girls.After having a glass of coke he decided to leave but he could not as he was feeling light headed little did he know his coke was spiked.All he remembers is waking up at 3am with a strange older woman in his arms and a few months later he was diagnosed with HIV.All in the name of celebrating the new year.
Fomo-fear of missing out.We all suffer from fomo at times especially when shaytaan makes all things and events harmful to us look so glittery and attractive.New years eve parties are packaged to attract millions of Muslims as we dance to the tunes of shaytaan there are people that are being robbed of their loved ones,their dignity,their identity,their haayah,their imaan and even their souls all in the name of celebrating a new year and yet What changes after the countdown?What changes after the clock strikes 12.01?Will it magically make you a better human?Does it promise you treasures or maybe a better life?Nothing and nobody miraculously ever changed at the stroke of midnight.
Rather create Fomo(fear of missing out) in your heart,mind soul with regards to your Salaah,zikr,the recitation and understanding of the Quraan as only Allah has the power to make your hour,your day,your month,your year and your life beautiful in this world as well as the hereafter.Your ultimate Fear of missing out:Jannah
May Allah safeguard us as well as our loved ones tonight and always.Ameen.
Sometimes men take women for granted…
Women define themselves by their men….
Both parties have failed to realise that ultimately they are the creations of Allah Ta’ala.
And if all of us are His creations…………………
Then he is our Rabb [creator]
we are all abid [slaves] of Allah Ta’ala………….
So why should we seek to please anyone else…???…
When our Rabb is waiting to hear from us…………….
(*)Something that touched my heart:
On my way I found a piece of paper tied to an electric pole, with a small note on it.
I was curious to know what was written, hence went closer and read it.
“I lost Rs. 50 somewhere on the road.
If any of you find it, please give it to me at this address.
My vision isn’t great so please help”
I was urged to follow that address and found an old hut in shatters with an older woman sitting outside.
She was frail and asked who is it, following my footsteps.
I said I came by this way, found Rs. 50 on the road so wanted to handover to you.
She began crying on hearing this.
She said “my dear I have had at least 30-40 people come over and give me Rs. 50 saying they found it on the road.
I dint write that note, I cannot even see properly nor do i know to read n write”
I said it’s OK amma you keep it.
She asked me to tear that note off on my way back.
I walked back with a million thoughts as to who could’ve written that note?
She would’ve asked everyone to tear that note but none did, I mentally thanked that person and realized that we just have to feel the need to help, there are so many ways to do it.
He/she just wanted to help this old woman who lives alone….
Someone stopped me n asked, “Bro, can you help me with this address?
I found a 50 rupee note, want to handover”
