A Starry Night

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Beautiful way to begin a day, actually every day is pray Fajr. InshaAllah you all have the means to do this and if not here are some tips on how to wake up for Fajr:
-keep wudhu the night before(angels surround you if you have wudhu making it easier for you to wake up)
-Read some Qur'an before going to bed(so your mind is focused)
-Make a niyyah(intention) so InshaAllah you will be able to do it!
-Go to sleep early!(a common reason people fail to pray Fajr is because they are too tired from last nights partying ;) )
-Set an alarm atleast an hour or so before sunrise (so you have time to be slow)

These are some tips I like to use and it usually helps me. InshaAllah if you are struggling try your best! Next read the waking up dua

Feel it in your heart. Say it with meaning. You are praising the Almighty for letting you be alive, to begin afresh. Anything bad you did yesterday can be erased through repentence today and good deeds. Then have breakfast! Do it! And make sure you say Bismillah before eating! Then make sure your phone is charged or get a good Islamic book with you! You are going to listen to a lecture on your way to college/work! Its really refreshing to be reminded of the Dunya and its insignificance therefore we should constantly remind ourselves with good words and utilize our time InshaAllah. Check out productivemuslim.com for more tips on how to use your time!
P.s when going downstairs sat SubhanAllah and when going up say AllahuAkbar!
Also before you leave your house say the dua and Ayat kursi three times. This is for protection.

Ayat kursi :

Bismillaah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem Allahu la illaha illa hu Wal Hayyul Qayyum La te huzuhu sinetun wala nawmun Lahu ma fissemawati wa ma fil'ardi Men thallathiy yeshfe'u indehu illa biznih Ya'lemu ma beyne eydiyhim wa ma halfehum wa la yuhiytune bishey'in min ilmihi illa bima sha-a wasia kursiyyuhu semavati wal'ard Wa la yeuduhu hifzuhuma wa hu wal aliy ul aziym

Leaving dua:
Bismillahi Tawakaltu Alla Alla La Hawla WaLa Kuwatta Illa Billah Alyil Azim

Keep your gaze low and avoid places that are filled with guys(i think this applies to colleges!) once you are in your workplace/college do what you are there to do. But try and say 'astaghfirullah' when you have time, which means Oh Allah forgive me of my sins, as ihsaan we should always repent so inshaAllah try this. Also try to say Alhamdulilah (praise be to Allah), SubhanAllah(all glory be to Allah) and AllahuAkbar(Allah is the greatest)

Next befor Zuhr try and pray Duha. Now for you sisters who have no clue what Duha is let me tell you!

1139. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: My Khalil (the Messenger of Allah (PBUH)) directed me to fast three days of each month, and to observe two Rak`ah Duha (optional prayer) at forenoon, and to perform the Witr prayer before going to bed. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Its 2Rakats but can be up to 6rakats.

This means its a Sunnah but we should try to adher to it because it is beneficial! Also try to Read Qur'an after this or even after your Zuhr prayer. Ok so at the end of your long day remember everything you have done and why, it is sometimes useful to reflect maybe on your way home what you have done good today and what needs improvement?

When coming home read Ayat kursi again and remember to say Bismillah when entering your home :)

Let us always remind ourselves of our purpose and not digress InshaAllah. Apart from that a good day needs a good attitude. If one bad thing happens dont let it ruin your whole mood :)

Wasalaam

Happy music

Life takes us through so many hurdles, so many journeys so many discoveries of ourselves. Do we ever just sit and think about how we came to be the person that we are now? I know I have been through a whirlwind of different personalities, different phases, feelings, thoughts, dreams. However I have remained somewhat constant- what I admire about myself is that I believe in myself (not necessarily my abilities) but I believe and support my actions regardless, and ... I'm glad I have strong principles, I guess it makes me who I am. Despite what I've had to sacrifice for them.Over the years I've always wondered who I'd be. In fact when I was younger I would dream of how I would be when I was older. (Older being past 20's) I'd imagine I would magically transform into this strong, independent, accomplished woman. And it would somehow come to be at this magical transition to adulthood. Oh how I would tell myself it's not that simple. Life is not that simple. We n…

Capturing my heart

I've been watching 13 reasons why on Netflix. It's been an interesting journey of suicidal thoughts and the teenage angst in high school. I feel enlightened to a certain degree (bearing in mind it is for entertainment) I feel like the message Hannah passes on to Clay is very similar to the one Virginia Woolf wrote to her husband before she committed suicide. I can't help but feel there's so much tragic beauty to these notes, so much beautiful poetry. I've always said there's so much beauty to sadness.       But you need to be here if I’m going to tell           my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy — you’re different. You’re good. And kind. And decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would. I would’ve ruined you. It was me and everything that’s happened to me."
(13 reasons why: Hannah's message to Clay )       Dearest,       You have given me the greatest possible            …

What im grateful for

I must say my post titled '23% complete' is one of my good posts, I don't know what's a bad post of mine (with no arrogance intended) maybe the posts where I'm not thinking enough or encouraging my readers to think more? Anyhow I've been at placement for about a week now and I can honestly say I've learnt a lot. I've learnt practical skills but that's not what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about how grateful I am to be in a career where I can impact lives' daily, I sincerely hope I am helping others even in the smallest way. I am grateful to be able to listen to others who have not been heard by society for a long time, those who are deemed as 'old' or 'forgotten' , I feel privileged to listen and provide comfort. I am grateful that I can aid others in their difficulties and make them feel better, because everyone needs to feel better sometimes. I am grateful to be that someone who can make a difference when I had noon…
