Don't Aim For Perfection

No one is a perfect Muslim.
No one can ever claim to be a perfect Muslim, because we're human, and we will never achieve perfection.
But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to be good Muslims, it doesn't mean we should stop trying to better ourselves.
Each one of us are sinners, we are weak and often we succumb to our desires.
We succumb to the temptations that are all around us.
But each one of us has the ability to repent.
Allah is the most Merciful, and He is the most patient, and He loves those who repent and turn to Him.
So no matter how many times we fall into the trap of sin, we should stand up and repent.
Obviously we shouldn't just sin and then say I'll repent afterwards.
But if we do fall into some sin, which in this day and age seems inevitable, then we shouldn't just continue doing it and think theres no use repenting I'm doomed now.
Once we realise what we doing is wrong we should try and stop it and rectify ourselves.
And remember change doesn't happen overnight. Maybe we'll find ourselves trapped in the sin over again, but each time we need to rebuke ourselves, and we need to repent and then try harder to stop.
No matter how many times you sin NEVER lose hope in Allahs mercy, continue repenting.

Nabi صلى الله عليه وسلم said
"All of the children of Adam are sinners and the best of sinners are those who repent." (Tirmidhi)

So keep going.
Keep trying to become a better Muslim.
Yes we will fall and falter along the way.
Yes we'll experience spiritual highs, and also spiritual lows.
Due to our weak nature we may not reach where we want to be,but don't be to hard on yourself, keep going and do what you can.
The important thing is that we never give up trying to be the best Muslims.
Maybe as a result of us trying again and again even though we may fail, and because of our effort to be good Allah will have mercy on us and grant us Jannah...

"In the sight of Allah the best action most loved by Him is the one done consistently even if it is little."
(Bukhari & Muslim)

Narrated Abu Huraira Radi-Allahu-Anhu
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, and the nights."
(Bukhari)

قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ
O my servants! who have acted extravagantly against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of Allah; surely Allah forgives the faults altogether; surely He is the Forgiving the Merciful.
(Surah Az-Zumar, Verse 53)

We wonder why there's no Rain

Why No Rain?
The youth find Hayaa to hard, Hijab and modest clothing a thing of the past.
Immodesty now rules the masses, segregation of sexes no longer holds a place in society.
And then we wonder why there is no Rain… We need to celebrate everything , let's have a party. Birthday, Anniversary, Bridal and Baby Showers.
Who cares if it costs more than a grand, who cares if it's waste. Who cares if it's haram.  We’ll justify it all we can.
And then we wonder why there's no Rain. We've discarded the Sunnah, left our Qur’an on the shelf, forgotten our Salaah, Don't pay Zakaah. We fast only if compulsory but lack true sincerity.
And then we wonder why there's no Rain. We disrespect or elders and parents, we’re uncompassionate toward our young.
And then we wonder why there’s no Rain. Girls have to go out to study, no matter the harms they'll encounter by stepping out of their homes.
No matter the sins committed, education is to important.
And then, w…

Peace Despite The Pain

And suddenly a sense of peace descends despite the pain.
There's a light at the end of this tunnel, an end to this unbearable strain.
A new train is soon arriving, this one filled with blessing and mercy.
For verily He has promised ease after every difficulty.
And we will have happiness after we experience misery.
Today you may have felt like you cannot go on, you felt like falling, never to stand again.
But you have to realise failing is not an option.
Every test sent by Allah has a solution.
He will reveal it at the perfect moment.
Never doubt, never lose hope for surely Allah does not abandon those who hold on to His rope.
Trials are temporary.
So endure them with a beautiful patience, and Allah will shower you with His endless bounty.
Do not resort to sin, thinking it will rid you of your pain. That is the biggest mistake we make.
The cure is found only in remembrance of Your Lord. Raise your hands and make dua, plead and beg your most Merciful Allah.
Fall before Him in prostr…

First Love ❤️

We put our whole hearts into things that are temporary, and we still wonder why we end up with a broken heart.
We place our full trust in everything besides Allah, and then we wonder why things don't turn out right.
We set ourselves up for misery, heartbreak and pain by relying on and attaching ourselves to temporary things, we get attached to people, to places and to things. And when any one of the things we're attached to is taken from us, which is inevitable in this temporary abode, we become devastated, we feel like we can't carry on anymore. Everything comes crumbling down.
But it shouldn't be like that, we shouldn't be attaching ourselves to these things.

We should attach ourselves to Allah!
Because Allah is eternal.
He will always, always be with us.
You will never have to part from Him, ever.

Yes we're allowed to love things and people in the Dunya, but we shouldn't let the love overtake and control us, and yes we're allowed to feel sad and gri…
