Remember, those who are hurting are at times the ones who hurt others as a result of their own pain. They struggle to cope with their hurt & end up inflicting their anger or resentment towards others. So don’t retaliate. Stay calm & help them if you can or stay away from them.
You’re disappointed not because of other people’s behavior but because of your own expectations. It’s a fact that people will let you down. Again & again. They’ll show you their true colours eventually. Learn to expect only from the One who made you. The Almighty always delivers!
Almighty. Help us to let go of the harmful things we don’t understand, people who take advantage of us & disappoint us & those with evil intent towards us. Help us to unload the weary weight off our shoulders & embrace the good You have put in our path. Aameen.
Everything that’s going on in your life is exactly as the Almighty had planned it. Your job is to trust the journey. You may not understand it. But let no one talk you out of it or discourage you. You don’t need a cheering squad to achieve your goals. Seek your strength from Him.
With the Almighty, the impossible is possible. So keep supplicating because He will make sure that when the doors open, you’re certainly prepared to go through it. He knows when you’re ready; He will give it at the precise time. So don’t fret. Just keep asking!
When you’re being tested, it’s important to keep your focus in the right direction. If you let Satan mess with your mind, you’re going to lose the plot and end up miserable. Remember, where you choose to focus is where your life will head. Keep the Almighty in sight always!
When you live with an attitude of gratitude, you’re protecting yourself from evil and all forms of negativity. You don’t feel discouraged because you have a grateful heart. Keep nurturing that feeling. Seek the Almighty always & you’ll overcome the hardships in your life!
Don’t let this world make you bitter, hard & cold-hearted. No matter how bad things are, don’t let whatever happens to you make you unkind & unfeeling. It’s not okay to hurt or be mean to others. No matter how they treat you, choose to be the better person. Rise above it all!
We need to stop blaming others for the things that happen in our lives. Learn to take ownership of our problem, assess our strength & weakness. Don’t focus solely on the wrongs as it can become demoralizing. But we need to recognize our faults. Correct them & get back on track.
No matter what others say about you, no matter how hard they try to twist the truth, take heart knowing that the Almighty knows what’s in your heart. He knows your intent. He knows what the outcome will be. So don’t fret. Let people have their say. In the end, only He matters!
It’s in the nature of man to let others down. Don’t be upset when someone disappoints you, fails you & shows you who they truly are. It’s to be expected. It happens to the best of us. It’s not within your control. Take it in your stride; move on, knowing you’ve done your best.
Tomorrow is perhaps the most overrated word. Everyone wants to do something tomorrow; start praying tomorrow; change for the better tomorrow; get that piece of work done tomorrow. But you know what? Most of the time, it doesn’t happen! What if tomorrow never comes? Do it today!
Every pain has a purpose. Every fall has a reason. Else the Almighty wouldn’t have allowed it to happen. Remember, life is a process. Each part of it is necessary to reach your next milestone. Short cuts won’t work. So embrace whatever He has planned and you’ll rise again!
At some stage, you will feel drained and overwhelmed by what’s going on around you. It can consume you and affect you negatively if you don’t do anything about it. Turn to the Almighty for strength and the will to carry on. Keep asking Him and He will see you through.
It’s easy to judge others. It only takes seconds to form your opinion. But it takes a lifetime to understand them and build them up. It’s easy to put people down when you’ve not walked in their shoes. Be kind. Be just. Be compassionate. Always empathise.
Don't be afraid of doing something because you're scared of what people are going to say about you. People will judge you no matter what. That’s just the way life is. Keep doing your thing and ignore the voices of dissent. You only have to please the Almighty and no one else.
When you ask the Almighty for something, never ever think for a moment that He cannot give it to you. Have firm faith in Him that He will do what’s best. He can turn your most hopeless, impossible situations to reality. All you need is a sincere call and utmost patience!
We have become experts in diagnosing other people’s problems. We know everything about everyone, mainly because of social media. But we tend to pay little or no attention to ourselves. If we’d only focus on improving ourselves a bit more, the world would be a much better place!
Some think money is everything. It’s not. Your connection with the One who made you is more important than all the wealth in the world. Your wealth, status & power should never make you feel arrogant. Remember, like a bolt from the blue, the Almighty can reclaim everything!
Don’t dislike people just because you’ve heard something bad about them. Always give them the benefit of the doubt. Would you like others to do that to you? Surely you don’t want to be condemned by those you’ve not even met? Be fair. The Almighty loves those who are fair-minded
Don’t waste the good that you do. Ensure that they are solely for the sake of the Almighty. Because if you do them with ulterior motives, they’re wasted; they won’t last; the reward is only gained in this world & does not extend to the next life. So keep purifying your intent!
If I don't respond to a crisis the way YOU want me to respond, it doesn't mean I'm not concerned. Perhaps I've responded in another more effective way. Learn to appreciate the diversity in our approach to issues. We do care & we are concerned. May peace & sanity prevail! Aameen
Blessed is he who's not attached to the worldly life, doesn't care much about people praising him & never worries about the criticisms of others. He takes everything in his stride & succumbs fully to the Decree of the Almighty. His heart’s content because he knows nothing lasts.
When you feel like you can't keep going, turn your heart to the One who knows about very aspect of your life. Tell Him you can’t carry on. But He can. Only He can turn things around for you. Ask Him to replace what's lost, mend what's broken and make you feel whole again!
Almighty. On this blessed day, keep us safe from hypocrites & those who have bad intention towards us. Surround us with good people; those who spread positivity & constantly remind us of You. Guide us in all that we do; all the way to our ultimate destination, Paradise! Aameen.
Parenting is not an easy task. But no matter what obstacles you face, keep going. Keep leading by example. Keep being a role model for your children. The good we teach our children stays with them & will become a part of their daily lives. So plant good seeds in their hearts!
The recent national holidays remind us that our strongest asset is our unity. I reiterate my calls to all opposition leaders that my door remains open & my arms remain outstretched. Riots & destructive violence must be rejected; peaceful constructive dialogue are the way forward
Don't say you’re giving up because you’re tired of waiting. How could you? Have you forgotten the Almighty’s promise? He won’t burden you with that which you have no ability to bear. Trust Him. He’s in full control & watching over you. Keep going; your breakthrough is in sight.
Almighty. I ask you to strengthen me so I can face whatever challenges You put in my path & not be overwhelmed by them. I know You see my tears and hear my prayers. I also know that You’re testing me. Grant me the ability to endure & face this with utmost patience. Aameen.
We’re only human & we tend to feel down or upset at times. But don’t allow such feelings to interfere with how you communicate with others. It’s easy to lash out & vent your anger but learn to control yourself. It’s one of the hardest things to do. But the rewards are great!
Understand that disappointment is not a bad thing. When something we dislike happens, we think it’s a mistake. We get upset. We forget that the Almighty is in control. He sees things we don’t. The bigger picture will emerge soon and we will thank Him for His Infinite Wisdom!
When you have attained that special connection with the Almighty, nothing can disturb your peace. You fully submit to His Decree. He will hide your faults like clothing hides the blemishes on your skin. He will beautify you and only show your good side and endear you to others!
The problem with most is they engage in prayer only because they want the Almighty to do something for them. That’s wrong! Prayer is about connecting and communicating with Him. Once you’ve achieved this, His help and blessings will follow undoubtedly. So establish that link!
Some people find it so hard to apologize when they’ve done wrong. It’s to do with their pride. You can never get them to say sorry, no matter how obvious their mistake is. Beware such pride; for even the size of a mustard seed will not let you smell Paradise.
Wishing you a Blessed Eid-ul Adha. Eid of the Sacrifice of Prophet Abraham pbuh. Spare a thought for the less fortunate as you celebrate with loved ones.!
#EidMubarak #BarkaDaSallah #SelamatHariRayaHaji
Be careful not to provoke people beyond their limits; like the one who doesn’t retaliate when you wrong him. Instead, he raises his hands to the heavens & seeks help from the Almighty; the most powerful One. So be mindful not to hurt others. If you do, quickly seek forgiveness.
Wishing a blessed Sunday to all and Eid Mubarak to our Muslim friends celebrating Eid al Adha in Zimbabwe and around the world this weekend.
It’s easy to just look at what others have & start comparing it with everything that’s wrong in your life. Don’t! Instead, ask the Almighty for a fresh start in any area of your life. Let go of the old & that which is bad for your inner peace. Start anew. Feel the heart lighten!
The sacrifice on #EidAlAdha
is to show gratitude to the Almighty for His blessings & a means to feed the less fortunate. I wish you all a Blessed Eid-ul Adha. Eid of the Sacrifice of Prophet Abraham pbuh. #EidMubarak #barkadasallah #SelamatHariRayaKorban
Almighty. We belong to You and to You is our return. Shower Your everlasting Mercy on us always, forgive us and guide us towards that which pleases You at all times. Help us to stay clear of that which displeases You. May You accept all our prayers and grant us ease. Aameen.
The Almighty is All-Knowing. He pays attention. He’s aware who is talking about you behind your back, who is trying to bring you down. Why worry? You stand to gain a lot of good deeds on Judgement Day from those who have discredited you. Carry on doing your best in everything!
The Almighty made each & everyone of us special. Don’t apologize for who you are. Work hard to be the best version of yourself. If someone is uncomfortable with you; that’s not your concern but theirs. Don’t change just to please others. We weren't meant to be liked by everyone.
Almighty. As pilgrims gather in #Arafah
on this Great Day of #Hajj
, we pray that You grant them ease & accept their acts of worship. Aameen.
On this blessed day, may we have the ability to give up something for the sake of the Almighty. Do it sincerely for Him with full submission. It will strengthen our faith. May we achieve the benefits of these ten days & may He accept the sincere efforts of those on #Hajj
Don’t waste time engaging in sin. You have the chance to start anew every day when the Almighty returns your soul to you after sleep. It’s up to you to decide today how you want to live your life; in His pleasure or displeasure. You have a duty to fulfil. Make it a good one!
Almighty. On this blessed day, forgive us & bless us with your endless Mercy. Enrich us with the goodness of these days of Hajj. Grant us our prayers & forgive our shortcomings. Pardon those who have gone before us. Teach us to always care for one another & protect us from evil.
Trust when you don’t have the answers. Trust when you can’t find the way out. Trust when you don’t know what’s happening. Trust when it defies your logic. Trust when everyone tells you it won’t work. This is what faith is all about. Trust the Almighty. Fully. Without a doubt!
What is this life but a number of days. Remember, with each passing day, a part of us passes away, as we get closer to our final destination. So do good & be the best you can be. That’s how you’ll be remembered.
You can have all the love in this world, but if your heart is devoid of the love of your Maker, you’ll be the poorest person. The truth is you’ll never be at ease. Satan will fill the void with all things fleeting & you’ll end up miserable. Turn to Him for that inner peace.
