Stop and think for a moment of the happiest time in your life. What made you so happy? Most (if not all of us) will likely remember a time when we were around people that we LOVE. Can you imagine being with Allah, spending time with Him and talking to Him was the happiest time in your life?
The only relationship where you will never have your heart broken is your relationship with Allah. The only one who will never abandon you is Allah. How can you search for happiness when it calls you five times a day?? Hold on to your prayers no matter how difficult life gets, because when you feel like there is no place to turn to or no one to seek help from, prayer will reinforce the belief in your heart that Allah is able to do all things – removing trials, pouring blessing upon you from places unknown, replacing a difficulty with multiple ease, mending issues of your heart and soul that were broken beyond repair, and ultimately rewarding you with Jannah for just having believed in Him- there is nothing a prayer can’t fix, so hold on to your Salah no matter what turns your life takes.
Start your day by talking to the Kings of the Heavens and the Earth, and see how your life transforms. The relationship with Allah is the best relationship you can ever have! But how do you do that?
The way to develop a relationship with Allah is through talking to Him and listening to Him. When you are in Salah you are actually talking to Him and when you are reading the Qur’an you are listening to His Words. Start with the prayer. Spend time reciting and understanding the Qur’an. When you read the Qur’an you will feel that Allah is telling you something, STOP and ponder over the meanings. Pray and ask Allah to show you true guidance and ask for His help and His love.
Don’t let your busy schedule in life stop you from missing your Salah or Delaying your Salah. Unfortunately some Muslims will line up at stores for hours for a good deal on a sale, but come late to Salah to get what money cannot buy. Hold on to your Salah! Do not leave it for ANYTHING!A busy life makes prayer Harder but prayer makes a busy life easier.
If you treat your Salah as a CHORE, you will not enjoy it. Treat it as a CONVERSATION between you and Allah, and your perception should change. Why do you rush while you perform Salah? Isn’t the one you are standing in front of in control of whatever you are rushing for?
By earnestly performing the five daily prayers, we achieve the greatest of blessings: cleared off our sins and increase in rank with our Lord. Prayer is a potent remedy for our sickness, for it instills our faith in our souls. As for those that keep away from the mosque and away from prayer, for them is unhappiness, wretchedness and an embittered life.
Sujood is a position where you realize your own nothingness in front of His greatness. A humbling reminder that you not only submit to Him with your limbs in those fleeting seconds of your life, but that you also submit to Him in the strongest sense – His plan and Divine decree for you. That is the ultimate form of submission, which you submit with your Heart.
Life cannot become boring when we establish connection with the giver of Happiness. When we remember Allah by glorifying Him, being conscious of him and thanking Him, He remembers us by answering our prayers, protecting us and guiding us throughout our lives. Scared? Pray. Over thinking? Pray. Losing hope? Pray. Worried? Pray. Struggling? Pray. Success is from Allah alone. So, go towards Allah and Allah will bring you closer to success. If you want guaranteed success, make every effort to please Allah.
“If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely.” [Quran, 3:160]

We can trust that when things don’t work out the way we want, Allah has something better planned.
You may not end up where you thought you’d be, but you will always end up where you’re meant to be right where Allah intended you to be all along!
If Allah has put you in a difficult situation in this world, its a chance to earn ease in the hereafter through patience.
Whatever you lost through fate, be certain that it saved you from pain. Whatever you lost through the stroke of destiny, know it was to save you from adversity. One small affliction keeps off greater afflictions; one small loss prevents greater losses.
Have faith, do not lose hope, wait patiently. He indeed will create a way to deliver you from your hardships. Persevere, have faith in His benevolence. Through afflictions Allah only tests your faith; He is completely aware of your condition. Have patience and wait for the divine decree.
Do not lose hope in adversity and complain that God singled you out for punishment, remitting others guilty of worse sins. Your present state could very well be His intent to elevate your spiritual station; or He could just be testing your faith. Everyday that you persevere, you grow closer to perfection. Thus your present despair may be beginning of an infinite blessing.
Whenever Allah gives a blessing to a servant, and then takes it away from him, and the servant patiently endures his loss, then He rewards him with a blessing which is better than the one He took away.
When Allah tests you it is never to destroy you. When He removes something in your possession it is only in order to empty your hands for an even greater gift!.” -Ibn al-Qayyim
Allaah says: “And whoever has Taqwaa of Allaah, He will make a way out for him (from hardship), and He will provide for Him from places He never imagined.” [Surah At-Talaaq: 2-3]
No matter how much you’re going through or how much hope you lost and how confused you were in what to do. Allah (SWT) was the one who took you out of that situation or he will after he tests your patience and faith in him or maybe he just wants to take something away from you to replace it with something better.
Allah knows best. He knows whats best for you, it may not seem like it but the pieces of the puzzle connect at the end. Always have faith in Allah because he only can do anything, everything is possible to him. Pray to him everyday, repent everyday, and make sure you thank him everyday also. Imagine waking up tomorrow with just what you thanked Allah for today?
Alhamdulillah for everything. SubhanAllah how the creator can change your life in just a day
When we face difficulties or we lose something, and we make Dua to Allah and have patience, inshā’Allāh, whatever we have lost, Allāh (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) will compensate us in this world and the next with that which is abundantly better. When we experience that blessing we will thank Allāh (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) for taking us through that test and we will understand that we were never abandoned, our du‘ā’’s were heard (every single one of them) and Allāh (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) was always in control of our affairs.
Do not ruin your life
❝He whom Allah knows as someone who loves to reconcile between people, Allah will rectify that which is between him and Allah and will forgive his sins. However, for the one who loves to ruin relations amongst people, Allah will ruin his life.❞ (Al-Fudhayl ibn ‘Iyaadh)
❝If you find yourself turning away and lazy, having no desire to recite the Book of Allah and remember Allah; and you find yourself always lagging behind in some acts worship and not desiring that which is with Allah, this is proof of your deficiency` in Imaan. Therefore remedy and rectify yourself.❞
– Shaykh Muhammad Amaan Al Jaami
Treat each difficulty and hardship as a calling from your lord to purify your soul and to increase your rank in the hereafter. The way you face and see each trial is half the battle. Realize that you cannot flee from trials, but you can pass all trials successfully with Allah’s help. Know that each trial is an opportunity to get closer to Allah, for nothing in this world is more valuable than a moment spent in contemplation and worship of Allah.
When you’re single, people ask why you’re single. When you get married, they ask when will you have a baby? When you have one child, they ask when is the little brother or sister coming? When you have another one they ask, why are you having so many children? When you get divorced, they ask why? If you move on, they ask why so quickly?
People will NEVER STOP ASKING & TALKING.
Live to please the CREATOR not the creation.
