Sock it

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Well first off let me apologise for posting so late and second of all let me congratulate you for being here with me for the first day back to college! Boy sometimes exams really do get the best of you and sometimes the bad of you ;)... That being said the approaching exams have finally hit me hard and I'm now frantically trying to revise as much as I can however fear not people I have already done prior revision it's just my Easter holidays weren't used very wisely...

So recently I've been thinking it over and decided I would do as much as I can to get the best grade I can and naturally it made me wonder why I'm not doing that to get to Jannah Al Firdous.

Then I felt insanely guilty so I decided I would also pursue learning about deen and not letting it become dormant. Let's be honest sisters alot of the time we get so preoccupied with things in our lives that we forget to learn more about our Deen. We can never stop learning no matter how practicing you are you will always learn more in Islam.

That reminds of Surah Al Kahf.

And they found a servant from among Our servants to whom we had given mercy from us and had taught him from Us a [certain] knowledge.

[Surah Al Kahf- 18:65]

SubhanAllah if you read the story of Moosah (AS) and the servant you will find that we will always learn, from eachother- we all have flaws and sometimes we can't even see them but others can and they can help us.

So as I was saying learning about Islam is important if you stop your passion you level of Eeman won't remain consistent we need constant nourishment of our souls in order to better ourselves. One way of bettering our souls is to of course do good deeds, this may sometimes prove difficult with the wrong mindset.

When doing good deeds we must always remind ourselves of the purpose (Allah SWT) and remove seeds of jealousy, anger, hatred and so on. Also we need to do consistently, me being a very fickle person I always jump around from everything and I know better than anyone that while we get an eeman boost from good deeds it doesn't always remain which makes us stop doing the deed which of course we sshouldn't do.

Try talking to yourself and finding out why you don't want to continue the deed, help yourself understand that it is to help you improve as a person, make a firm intention and ask for Allah to help you.

Dont give up Shaytan loves to tempt us and make us doubt ourselves- he may even make you think you are 'trying to be too good'- but don't let him win- you continue doing good deeds and sock it to him!

InshaAllah this was beneficial if not I am sorry.

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…
