What you see in other people is a reflection of yourself. A person of goodness sees goodness in others and a person of evil sees evil in others.
Never forget the favors done for you. Always forget the favors you’ve done for others.
The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others.
When Allah loves you, He places the love of you in the hearts of the people whose love is worth having.
When you forget that you need Allah, He puts you in a situation that causes you to call upon him. And that’s for your own good.
I tell people this over and over again: don’t attach your faith to people. People will come and go. People will disappoint you. People will divulge dark secrets. People will turn out to be the opposite of what you thought. Allah is perfect. His Messenger (peace be upon him) is a perfect example, and the religion is a perfect methodology. Attach yourself to the principles instead of the people. That way no Shaykh going wild or role model going rogue will be able to shake your faith.
Wake up knowing that Allah is greater than any obstacle you may face today.
One thing I’ve always struggled with in life is loving people too much. It’s painful when that love is not reciprocated. But one thing I always comfort myself with is the fact that Allah will always show greater love to those who love Him. Allah doesn’t disappoint you so keep your heart attached to Him.
Sometimes you don’t realize how special something is until you lose it. Thats how I feel about Ramadan every year.
When you treat people well, those same people might not treat you the same way. But if you pay attention, you’ll notice that Allah has sent OTHER people who treat you even better.
When people wear you out, spend some time in isolation with Allah and your relationship with Him will improve as well as with the people.
Love the people you think you’d want to be with in the hereafter.
Your true friends dont shy away from keeping you in check because your wellbeing is more important to them than even your friendship and they’d rather risk offending you than watch you harm yourself.
When you give, expect nothing from people and everything from Allah.
Allah will never disappoint the sincere caller. Even when you think He hasn’t answered you, He plans in your favor.
Positive thinking isn’t ignoring life’s problems, it’s understanding that Allah can make a way out for you if you sincerely try.
Don’t go into Ramadan having hurt anyone without seeking their forgiveness. The last thing you’d want on the day of judgment is to find that your entire Ramadan with all of its quran recitation, fasting, taraweeh prayers, laylatul qadr, etc. went completely to waste because your pride stopped you from saying “I’m sorry”. With that being said, I’m sorry if I’ve written, said, or done anything to offend you. Please find it in your heart to forgive and make dua that Allah grants me guidance and sincerity.
Talk to Allah in your own language with your heart fully present. Allah doesn’t need you to rhyme or speak arabic.
Kind words cost you nothing but are sometimes worth more than a million dollars.
Renew your intention EVERY day, EVERY time you pray, and EVERY time you are about to do a good deed or else shaytan will lead your heart and mind astray.
Acting humble for people’s praise is one of the most dangerous forms of riyaa (showing off).
Sometimes Allah gives you bitterness in this life so that you can further enjoy the sweetness of the hereafter.
In order to bring out the best in people, you need to give them your best.
Many sisters complain that people don’t want to marry them unless they stop wearing hijab. No man is worth your hijab, and a real man wouldn’t request you to take it off in the first place.
Being unashamedly Muslim while excelling in whatever you do is of the greatest forms of Dawah.
