A friend will not (literally) share your struggles, and a loved one cannot physically take away your pain, and a close one will not stay up the night on your behalf. So look after yourself, protect it, nurture it, and do not give life’s events more than what they are really worth. Be certain that when you break no one will heal you except you, and when you are defeated no one will give you victory except your determination. Your ability to stand up again and carry on is your responsibility.

Do not look for your self-worth in the eyes of people; look for your worth from within your conscious. If your conscious is at peace then you will ascend high. And if you truly know yourself then what is said about you will not harm you. Do not carry the worries of this life because this is for Allāh, and do not carry the worries of sustenance because it is from Allāh, and do not carry the anxiety for the future because it is in the Hands of Allāh. Carry one thing: how to please Allāh.

If you please Him, He pleases you, fulfils you and enriches you. Do not weep from a life that made your heart weep. Just say, ‘O Allāh! Compensate me with good in this life and the Hereafter.’ Sadness departs with a prostration (sajdah). Happiness comes with a sincere supplication (du’ā). Allāh does not forget the good you do, nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh.

Live your life with this principle: be good even if you do not receive good; not because of other’s sake but because Allāh loves the good-doers.
[Imām Ibn Al-Qayyim Rahimahullāh]

MISS THIS KIND OF PEACE 🦋

Through life I've mostly only met kind people. People has always been kind to me. I think that is because they look at me as one of the "soft" girls if I can say it like that. But I myself have also always seen only the goodness in people (I still do), but the adult life has shown me the reality. I have seen mean people, rude ones, evil hearted ones - and I am so thankful for that. Ofcourse it sad that people can behave like that. But I am thankful to have been able to see such people. They have teached me so much. Like I know now I can't trust people that easily. I know that not everyone wish you the best, even though they don't know you. I know some are rude and mean because of their own past - they have wounds, and that is part of a human life, but they just haven't learned the lessons of of them and therefor let it out on other people. Adulthood has shown me that there are people too kind and good hearted that their kindess are being used - which is sad. And there are the opposite. Both are blessings. Both makes you reflect, grow and learn more about life.

Life has a lot to offer. What I think is important is to sit down and reflect once in a while. Like we do think all the time, but once in a while just sit down and think well. What have you learned, gained, lost, and most of all what has it done to you? Because every chapter - with ease or difficulty should do something with you. If you are the same, you haven't learned the lesson.

You should grow,
learn,
experince,
and live.

Live and be ready for more. That is what this life is about. Its about to live, while working for the next.

Be smart with yourself. If you have reached your goals, great! Now create a new ones and work for them. Be focused and smart and empathetic and honest. All that is remarkably more powerful than to be pretty. So many use all their time to work on their outside rather than the inside. Remember learning is endless, sparking change can be forever, and to be the girl who walks into a room knowing herself and her mind and what she's cabable of doing - that is absolutely priceless, and the world needs it.

You're already pretty. Go be the other things.

The Four “R’s” of Ramadan ✨

There are some simple reminders of what the month is all about. While it is easy to focus on the hunger and binge eat, there is so much more to the fasting. Ramadan is the biggest blessing and a moment to reflect and recognize your relationship with The Creator, reevaluate your priorities and recommit yourself to Him.

R E F L E C T
Ramadan is a time to offer more prayers, read the Quran, and strive to be a better Muslim. Perhaps one of the most important things to do this month is to reflect on your past behavior and sins. During Ramadan, try to improve at least one of these issues. Don’t just fix it for the month, but for the rest of your life.

R E C O G N I Z E
After you have reflected on yourself, recognize that you are not perfect. Notice that you sin and that you must seek forgiveness constantly from the All-Merciful and All-Forgiving. Recognize that Allah is everything. And without Him, you are nothing.

R E E V A L U A T E
Take time every day (after prayers is a good time) and reevaluate your life. Reevaluate your priorities. Do you put work before your prayers? Do you choose TV over studying the Quran? Simple changes can mean the world. Revaluate everything and bring yourself closer to Allah.

R E C O M M I T
Lastly, recommit yourself to Islam. Strive to be a better Muslim in your actions. Commit yourself to spending more time in prayer, or to going to masjid more often, or help those in need. Anything. Just take the time and recommit your life to the One who created you. Recommit to Allah.
