Whatever you give attention to grows in importance. Don’t dwell on critics and haters. Focus on your Creator and His plans for you & your life. Don’t worry about those trying to put you down. Your job is to respect others and not to hurt anyone. Do your best. He’ll do the rest!
Don’t brag about your achievements. Don’t make a song and dance about it. Whatever the Almighty has bestowed on you, protect it. Guard your blessings because people tend to ruin it. Yes, even the best of friends and the ones with pure hearts can ruin whatever you have.
Tired & weary as you are in your journey, you’re not alone. Your heart feels so much pain. You’re not alone. You need to be patient with what the Almighty has planned for you. For how long ? All your sacrifices will be worth it. The more patient you are, the greater your reward!
It’s inevitable to look at others & yearn for their lifestyle on social media. Next time you find yourself doing that, stop & think if it’s fair to compare your life with theirs when you’re only seeing a portion of their life they want you to see. You don’t have the full story!
Stay positive. It’s the catalyst for survival in life. Your ability to be able to see the glass half full rather than half empty is the key to being happy and appreciating where you are in life. Gratitude is key. The Almighty will bestow you with more when you’re grateful!
Losing someone you love is a huge test of faith. That’s the reality of this life. How you pick yourself up and carry on shows how much you understand the Almighty’s plan. May He help us cope with our loss and reunite us with our loved ones in Paradise.
Choose what you want in life. Happiness or sadness. It seems quite obvious but many don’t follow it up with action. If you want to be happy, work for it. Be proactive. Get the Almighty’s help not just for worldly things. Bit by bit your life will change. You’ll be content!
Just because you’ve been having one disappointment after another, doesn’t mean things won’t get better. Trust the Almighty. The beauty of letting Him take over is that He knows us better than we know ourselves. Believe that whatever it is will arrive in His perfect timing!
You may think that everything is going wrong. The truth is something is still going right. You lose one thing, you gain another! When you can’t think of anything you’ve gained, there are still countless blessings to be thankful for. So when broken hearted, draw closer to Him!
It takes a huge amount of courage & strength to forget about what you’re going through, the troubles in life & put on a smile for the world to see. Appreciate how strong such people are for being able to stay positive in spite of everything! So always be kind to those you meet!
Cherish the scars you get in life. They serve as a constant reminder that you struggled & strove to be who you are today. Not everyone can handle life crisis. Among the most beautiful people are those who've known defeat, suffering, struggle, loss & they emerged winners!
How you feel about yourself should not be dictated by someone else’s opinion, points of view, words or thoughts. People will say what they want and they’ll judge. That’s human nature. Let it be. Don’t give them so much power over you. Stand your ground and just be yourself!
When you think your life’s falling apart; you’re going through a divorce, just lost your job, financial difficulties abound, your health’s suffering. It’s times like these where you need to draw even closer to the Almighty. Trust Him amid the pain. He will shine His light on you!
Youth Discussion Forum: Addressing Issues of Youth by Mufti Ismail Menk in Islamic Centre Hall
It was a beautiful lecture by @muftimenk
tonight about respect and tolerance.I hope our society learned a lot about those two concepts tonight, I surely did. It was a pleasure to attend and listen to his insightful lecture tonight. Much needed lecture for this country. Thank you.
People & circumstances around you may try to push you down. But don’t worry; the Almighty is All-Knowing. He knows what to do. He knows who has evil intent; who’s trying to help you up & will give you a hand! He puts people in your life for different purposes. Trust Him!

Doubt and disbelief - Satan’s handiwork! Don’t fall prey to any of that. Keep a lid on his whispering that will always come back to you. That is his forte. He will never give up. That’s why you need to bolt the door and focus on your journey ahead. Don’t let him trick you.
Almighty. Grant us peace of mind to ease our troubled hearts. The soul feels like a turbulent sea. It’s hard to navigate the troubled waters; we often stumble and worry constantly. Give us the strength and courage to steady ourselves and to stay afloat on the straight path.
You want to change things? Shift your mindset. Most things will never change until your mind does! Embrace positivity. Don’t let Satan or anyone mess with your mind. Keep your focus on your goal & work at it. The Almighty never said it’d be easy but He promised it’d be worth it!
Don’t always blame circumstances for where you are in life. The Almighty has blessed everyone of us with so much, it’s up to us to use those blessings in the best way. People who make it in life are those who take charge & create circumstances instead of wandering aimlessly.
Stop making negative comments & spreading rumours about others. Not only are you ruining people’s reputation, you’re also giving yourself a bad name. Engage in positive activities and steer your mind towards all things good. You’ll end up attracting like-minded people! Try it!
Moments from "Why Do Some Musilms Deviate from Islam?" a very special religious lecture by Mufti Ismail Menk in Addu
Many people worry about not having figured out their lives. What does that really mean? As long as you’re on the path prescribed by the Almighty and doing your best, trust Him to work it all out for you. You don’t have to figure everything out on your own. We have a loving Lord!
So happy to have you fly with us. @muftimenk #NationalAirline #Maldivian
Some are so obsessed over winning an argument that they will do what it takes to get the upper hand. Don’t! Instead, take a step back and understand that no one ever wins in an argument. You often end up with a lot of bad feelings. Do your best to stay away from such situations!
Take ownership of your life. Don’t expect people to fix things for you when they go wrong as they often will. It’s not someone's responsibility to fill in the missing pieces of our lives. Learn to be self-sufficient. Resolve your issues soonest possible. Don’t let them fester!

Public Lectures in the #Maldives
from tomorrow #inshaAllah
Open for all. Free. Please pass the word.
In times of hardship, pain and loss who do you turn to first? Make sure you seek solutions and a way out from the Almighty instead of others. Let us not search for temporary comforts in people and worldly things. May we be among those who seek help through patience and prayer!
The Almighty is watching to see what you do with the wealth He has blessed you with. There are those who try to impress others with the money they have. They’re quick to spend money when it helps them look good, but don’t do anything to help people who desperately need it!
Don’t be an arrogant sinner. Quickly acknowledge your sin, repent and get back on track. The Almighty, with His limitless Mercy will forgive you. Remember, Paradise and Hellfire exist for sinners. The former for the repentant ones & the latter for those who are arrogant.
So your life’s a mess & you can’t find a way out. You’ve never felt so alone. Remember, in the blink of an eye, the Almighty can show you a way out. You only have to turn to Him. Ask Him. He’s capable of giving you what you want and more. He will heal you. He will protect you.

The Almighty knows you better than you know yourself. He knows everything about you to the minutest detail. Every dream in your heart, He is aware of. Whatever He gives you is for your own good. Whatever He withholds from your is also for your own good. So do not be sad!
Prominent scholar Mufti Ismail Menk will be giving lectures on the below dates in Male' , Addu and Kulhudhuffushi city. Ministry of Islamic Affairs encourages everyone to attend these lectures #MVIaffairs #MuftiMenkMV
Nothing in your life is a mistake. Everything has been carefully planned by the Almighty to the minutest detail. Your job is to always do your best. Even when you think nothing is going on, He’s busy behind the scenes. He will open doors which you could never open by yourself!
When you’re trusted, take it seriously. Trust is fragile. Because it’s often given freely, it’s also easily taken for granted. Once you’ve been betrayed, it can be very hard, if not impossible, to earn it back. The scars may be so deep & are forever embedded in a person’s mind!
Some get a big thrill from boasting about their achievements or showing off their possessions. They believe that they’re better than others. They may even end up bossing people around. That’s wrong. Remember, whatever you have, someone will have more! That’s life! Stay humble!
We don’t respond well to being put down & pride gives people that feeling with its “I’m better than you” implications. Humility has the opposite effect. If you put others above yourself, they’ll feel good whenever they’re around you. That will surely have a positive impact!

Take the spite out of your heart. Purify it. Your heart is a small organ. When you fill it with hatred for someone, you’re preventing it from being filled with the love of the Almighty. Always ask Him to protect us from hearts that are consumed by hatred, envy, pride, jealousy!
Almighty, in a world that never stops talking, let us learn to appreciate silence. Grant us the ability to listen to the unspoken words many are uttering but no one is listening because everyone’s busy talking. Grant ease to those who are battling their trials quietly! Aameen!
Make it a point to encourage someone today. Urge them to hang in there, to persist towards their goal. Keep reminding them, show your concern and interest in their well-being, say a prayer for them. People are empowered by the words, “I’m so proud of what you are doing.”
Some people spend their whole life waiting. Waiting for the right time to repent from sins, to worship the Almighty, to turn over a new leaf, to do good etc. This is the trap of Satan. No one is promised tomorrow. Don’t waste your life procrastinating. Do your best today!
