- Don’t Lose Hope!
How many hard and distressed beginnings were the reasons for success and empowerment?
How many illnesses came before the healing and yosr (relief ) from Allah?
How many sad griefs turned people into a reason to change the world?
2. Love that Lasts
Love is hard to find but also easy to lose, therefore one love that you won’t lose if you follow the Quran and Sunna is Allah’s love.
May Allah grant us His love and the love of those He loves.
Make Allah make us dependent on no other then His glory.
May Allah reward the grateful among us and make us one of them.
May Allah shower His mercy on us and our loved ones.
Truly in the remembrance of Allah do the hearts find light.
May Allah grant us His light and guide us from darkness back to light at all times Ameen.
Love is sometimes blind. We need to choose a spouse according to their character and care.
Love can hurt so we need be wise and walk away before we get hurt.
Love is beautiful when you are close to Allah.
Love is kind when you are kind with your soul.
Love is mercy , love is compassion, love is unity , love is hard but love for Allah is the only love worth fighting for.
Love Allah and Allah will love you and take you away from your misery into His light.
We ask Allah for that and for His mercy on the day when no soul will bear the burden of another, so we pray to feed our souls with Allah’s wise words from the Quraan and to follow his messenger Mohamed (saw) of mercy who came to teach us the Quran and to set an example for humankind who wishes to find light in life.
Love is beautiful once you taste Allah’s love in your heart the world will not mater to you as much and you will find the peace of your Creator more valuable then any other kind of love.
May Allah grant us mercy and show us His light forever and may we taste the beauty of Eman in our hearts and souls forever amen.

May we fulfill our term in this world in the best way possible and may we stay firm in eman until we die while You are happy with us and while Jana awaits our souls with peace through Your glory and mercy.
Master of the day of judgement it is You we worship and You we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path, the one of those You have blessed and who have not incurred your anger or gone astray.
In the name of Allah the most merciful we pray for all what our prophet Mohamed prayed to You for and we seek refuge in You from all what he sought refuge in You from.
Peace and prayers be upon Prophet Mohamed and his companions and those who follow him.
May we be one of those whose ranks in front of Allah is as high as our beloved Prophet Mohamed (saw)
May the peace of today fill your life with light and guidance from the Almighty.
When you mention Allah, Allah mentions you so try to keep Him in your heart and mind as much as you can.
Try to find a mosque where you find peace.
Take a book of Islamic knowledge and go sit In a park garden or by the sea.
Greenery and water will calm your soul God willing.
Keep up the good work and don’t give up; life is too short to give up!
Eternal peace for eternal hell
Let’s choose wisely. May Allah help guide us all Ameen
3. Advice of the Wise Ones:
George Bernard Shaw wrote:
“The secret of being miserable is to have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy not.”
Solution: Keep busy.
Why? The busy person is neither happy or unhappy, rather occupied or preoccupied, which does not leave room for depression.
In Islam, a person is already busy with worship among other duties.
The truth of the matter is as Allah says in His book: Rely on Me and you will be content.
Reliance on Allah allows a person to let go of his worries to a Higher Power. This lifts half of the burden off your heart.
One of my favorite surahs in the Quran is Ash-Sharh. It reminds us that it is Allah Who expands our hearts for us towards peace, and that without occupation in halal activities, one would find oneself miserable.
Ways to Keep Busy:
-Go for a coffee with a Muslim friend
-Take a discovery trip to a new place and have lunch/dinner there; let it be an open air green place as greenery SubHanAllah relaxes the eyes (no wonder Jannah is full of greenery!)
-For the ladies: go buy flowers (colored ones)
-Flowers brighten the home and give an antidepressant smell–“smell the roses”–it really does help–keep a rose with you on your walk–find beauty within God’s beautiful creations–Alhamdulillah that we can see and smell!
-Volunteer at an NGO or give your time to an orphanage, even if it is to teach them how to paint. When you give for the sake of Allah, Allah gives you back. If you don’t get it in this world right away, it is because He wants to give you tremendous reward in the hereafter.
4. Things You Didn’t Know
-Allah rejoices when you repent, so feel happy that you are given the honor of repentance.
-Allah wants ease for you through Islam, not hardship
-Islam allows you to find peace in every situation you are put in.
-In a state of pain you call upon your Lord and He takes care of it in the best way for you. In a state of joy you thank Him, and He gives you more.
-When you pray in Masjid Al Haram in Makkah, each prayer is worth a multitude of normal prayers.
-Fasting there is equal to 1000 days of fasting.
-The arsh of Allah is above Masjid Al Haram
-In Makkah you are safe from the evil eye and black magic
-The Kaaba was built by our father Abraham
-The Kaaba is in the center of gravity
-Your one deed is multiplied while your one sin is erased if not put into action
-When you send salawat (peace and blessings) upon the Prophet Muhammad (SAW), he returns it to you the same second
May Allah (swt) increase our knowledge ameen
5. Things to Look Forward to in Heaven:
-Rivers of honey and milk
-the perfect spouse
-never ending happiness
-all what your soul desires forever
-being in the Hands of the Most Merciful forever
-no more sadness
-no more grief
-no more pain
–no more unfulfilled desires
We ask Allah to be among those given this honor Ameen!
When you love someone, let it be for the sake of Allah. You will find yourself a lot more giving and rewarded in this world and the next in one way or another.
I pray for all those who read this that your love for Allah encompasses all.
If you face a kind of love that forgoes your duties with Allah, try to keep busy as much as you can with other things.
Keep the good memories to make you smile and cherish them. Find a way to find beauty in what you have. Ask Allah for mercy.
Prayer: “Allah return to me what I love dearly, but let your love encompass all. Ameen.”
7. Family Struggles
-Prioritize your duties. Do not do anything that would make it hard for you to fulfill your duties with your Creator.
-You can’t push your family to have your same beliefs, but you can politely protect yourself from the negative energy.
-We all need support and it is our duty as Muslims to support each other as long as it does not get in the way of our religious duties.
Look for friends who have the confidence to speak on your behalf.
Remember that you are never alone. Allah and His angels are always with you when you call upon Him.
Sometimes Allah answers in a way that you will not understand, but it is not your job to understand. It is your job to trust Him.
Trust: Find peace in relying on Allah.
A beautiful prayer our Prophet Muhammad (saw) taught us: “Oh Allah, don’t leave me to myself, not even for a blink of an eye.

10. Lessons I have Learned in My Life:
-the person who has too much pride to tell you they are sorry is not worth keeping
-the only people who can truly help you are the ones close to Allah
-the prayer by an oppressed person good or bad is never rejected by Allah the Almighty, so feel free to pray for or against the person who has harmed you. It is better than taking an action you may regret
-Life is short. Don’t sweat what you have not attained; rather sweat if you haven’t yet repented
-People will give you advice; however, Allah knows best
-Pray Fajr. It’s not only good for your soul; it’s good for your body
-Speak good, defend an oppressed, or keep silent.
-Eat, Enjoy, but don’t be extravagant in any shape or form. Moderation = Success in life
11. Moderation Wisdoms
-acts of worship
-any form of activity
As the Almighty says, He wishes for you ease not hardship.
Examples: Swim too much and you’ll get sore. Pray too much and you’ll get tired. And you won’t sustain a constant Iman (Love for Allah).
As the Prophet Muhammad (saw) said, “A small act of kindness done constantly is better than a huge act only done once.”
Your life is not all religion but your religion governs your life. Just be conscious of your Creator.
A kind soul close to Allah is better than a charming soul.
Allah is your Best Friend.
Keep loyal to Allah and Allah will keep loyal to you.
Upset your Lord but don’t expect no consequences if you don’t repent fast.
May we all remember to do so ameen!
