People truly fascinate me. They are both simple and complicated. & both hideous and beauteous. Both humane and inhumane. Both amazing and sickening. It’s so interesting how we are all made of the same stuff, yet not a single person on the face of the earth will ever be like the other. It’s fascinating how there are those that care about one another, and those that kill one another. How there are those that steal, and those that report those stealing. How there are those who help you up and those who push you down. Man, people are just so interesting. I myself, am so interesting. Here I am this human bone covered by muscles and tendons and fat and skin and colour and there are these eyelashes meticulously arranged and these teeth. Subhan Allaah.
Reminder: we were made for these times. For these exact times. We were made for all of this. We were made for the memories and the moments, the nostalgia and the now, the tomorrows and yesterdays. This is all for us.
Focusing too much on the life of others, will blur your vision.
If everyone in your life is always happy with you (and your decisions) and you are always happy with them (and their decisions), I would question your sanity and your sincerity .
Imagine all your beautiful deeds, all your glorious doings, all of them going to the hands of each and every person you did them for, fooling yourself into thinking you were doing them for your Lord. Imagine all your beautiful deeds, all your glorious doings, leaving you empty, in ruins.
May Allaah protect us from insincerity and may every thought, every statement, every act, be for His sake only. Allaahumma ameen.
We limit the deen to rules and obligations, the haraam and the halaal, the makrooh and the mustahabb. All you need to ask yourself is, do I want to obey Allaah and His commandments or do I want to disobey Him? If you want to obey Him, be of those who hear and obey [follow the Qur’aan + Sunnah]. If you want to disobey Him, be of those who hear and disobey [not follow the Qur’aan + Sunnah.
Beauty has nothing to do with how your face is aligned, how your genes decorated the structure of your eyes, the fullness of your lips, the arch of your eyebrows. Beauty has nothing to do with your talent of contouring your face or lining your eyes. It has nothing to do with how clothe define your shape and how your walk turns heads. Beauty is your morning voice as you struggle to clear it away. Beauty is how red your face turns when you receive a compliment, no matter what shade your pigments are. Beauty is the smile that forms on your face as you recall memories of the past. Above all, beauty is the truth in your words, the honesty in your silence, the sincerity in your being and the realness in yourself. Beauty is you, as you are, as you want to be, as you aspire to be, as you desire to be.
We have to be the people we want to see in society. Because a society is made up of people, of us.
Even if you inhale all the negativity and hardship and struggles and trials and frustration, exhale alhamdulilaah. Exhale Allaahu akbar. Exhale, inna lilaahee wa inna ilayhee raji’uun. Exhale, Laa ilaaha illaa anta subhanak innee kuntu min al thaalimeen. Exhale the praises of Allaah.
What a soul that turns to Allaah in times of distress, intense mess, and times of sweetness.
You have to make the best out of every situation.
Wake up each morning with a renewed outlook on life, on situations, on everything. If today was horrible, make tonight good. If tonight was good, make tomorrow morning the best. Your outlook on life, is what determines your happyness. You make you happy, because you have control over you.
