Feed your Soul with…

I have seen such people…
They fulfilled each of their wish – like every random wish, basically without thinking about right or wrong, they went with the “flow” and listened to their hearts/nafs (in this case).

Today! They are questioning their lives, their life has lost all the meaning, charm and excitement because they fulfilled their desires in haram ways.

All that can be seen in their eyes is a dead person, they dress up, hangout yet there is a constant vacuum inside them (literally).

But why does it matter? Why am I bringing this up? ▪
People nowadays think (infact believe) that Islam forbids everything, everything is haram in Islam and that they can hardly do anything if they follow Islam.

Well my dear brothers and sisters, It is not Islam that forbids everything, it is our society that has adopted everything which is Haram in the eyes of ALLAH, which ALLAH forbids only because it is harmful for no one but us (but we don’t realize).

Weren’t there any hobbies in the early times? Didn’t people joke or have fun? Haven’t you heard about how ALLAH’s Prophet (SAW) used to joke and play with his wives and companions.

But today the vulgarity is so common that it seems quite abnormal being decent.

An awake person knows its simply not worth disobeying ALLAH Subhanawa ta’alah, no matter what! ☝

After all, this Dunya is as much as one grain of sand while the rest of the desert is the Akhirah (do correct me if I am wrong here).

How foolish it is to follow your heart and end up being a hopeless person in this life as well as in the hereafter and face that shame in ourselves and the anger of ALLAH on the day of judgement..(Allah ho Akbar 😭) ▪
Jim Carrey says: “I wish everyone was wealthy and popular, so they would know that this is not the answer.” Then, what is the answer?

We need to feed two things; our body (temporarily) and our soul (which will last forever), but we forget the later one.

Feed your souls; with Zikr of Allah and Ibadah because it is the most funadamental purpose of our creation.

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ○
“And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” (51:56)

Food for soul…

Imagine, you and me are gathered on the day of judgement, hearts filled with the fret and eyes shedding enormous amount of tears, unconscious of how we are dressed or look for we don’t know where we stand in the Eyes of Allah and which side (good deeds side or bad deeds side) of our balance is going to be heavier. Our bodies are shaking because we realize we have been so neglecting towards Salahs, Quran and basic rulings of Islam. 😭

Can we really compromise the day of resurrection’s relief for some worldly temporary pleasure? 😔

A little humbleness shown today, few moments of kindness, some days of truthfulness and a life of honesty can take us closer to the Heavens, a literally ‘happily ever after’ and above all our Salahs that hardly take 1 hour of whole day can make us among those who will have the honor to see the Lord of the Heavens and Earth and of the Universe, the perfect entity, and our only Provider Allah Almighty. 😍

On the other hand, even if we get all the worldly pleasures we wish for today, they are hardly gonna last for a couple of decays, so, is it really worth it? 🤔

I am leaving you a question here.

The short sleep we get by not waking up for fajr, and the enjoyment after talking behind someone’s back, dressing un-modestly cause we love getting compliments (and the list goes on, unfortunately) is that all worth burning in hell for decays? Does it do justice and can protect us on Yaum’id deen?

And before we even think, yeah well Allah is Ghaffoor and Raheem (which indeed He is) Let me share with you this ayah where Allah says:

The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do wrong in ignorance [or carelessness] and then repent soon after. It is those to whom Allah will turn in forgiveness, and Allah is ever Knowing and Wise. (An-nisa 4:17)

Furthermore, Allah speaks about those who on the contrary keep doing the sins until they reach their death-bed and then they make repentance, they no longer deserve Allah’s mercy. (Astaghfirullah 😭) He says in next ayah:

But repentance is not [accepted] of those who [continue to] do evil deeds up until, when death comes to one of them, he says, “Indeed, I have repented now,” or of those who die while they are disbelievers. For them We have prepared a painful punishment. (An-nisa 4:18)

Do I and you know if we are going to live the next moment?
May Allah forgive us, guide us and make us among those with whom He will be pleased on the day of Judgement. Say, Amin :’)

To me rain is like a…

Rain is a catalyst, a positive catalyst for feelings.

I mean whatever you are feeling Rain has the power to intensify your feeling.
If I am sad… I will be even sadder during rain, and if I am happy, I will be even happier!

The feeling of loneliness will increase when you hear the clouds thundering.

The teary eyes become even heavier and sometimes old stuffed tears roll out of your eye because ‘it… is… raining.’

What do you think? What’s rain?

Feel sad? This can make your day.

This world never fails at surprising me with the deepest kind of beauty, that be;

kids’ reaction to ugly face/body as if they are just as beautiful as any other face,

the kindness in one’s heart for a stranger,

the unconditional love b/w spouses even when they have reached into their 70s & 80s,

and when that weak/old lady acts stronger than an adult breaking all the stereotypes.

It is just a glimpse of the beauty that nature posseses and always ready to share with you, look around, explore it yourself and get ready to be left astounded! :’)

I don’t know about love but beauty is definitely in the air!

What is the most advanced form of fashion?

Entering into an organization or company with your face covered in a veil, where the norms of professional dressing are entirely opposite, doesn’t seem a very hard thing to do now. ( May Allah help me stay consistent)
Since I have the realization that this kind of dressing is the most advanced form of fashion, it truly is!

Be a Champion

We have a problem, we want it quickly. Whatever we put effort in we are restless to get exceptional results in a very less time. And believe me it’s not wrong either. So, what to do? In order to find peace and be content with the “slow result productivity process”.

I say just have these 4 things:

  1. Be consistent in your efforts.
  2. Appreciate and trust yourself, donot scold or degrade yourself rather pump yourself up by saying things like ‘yeah! You can do it, you are a champ dude!” (bcoz you are a champ).
  3. And Trust Allah The Almighty God…. because He promises to give results of our efforts. Even if a non-muslim does good deeds he gets its results in this dunya so trust.
  4. And Thank Him(God), Thank Him, Thank Him! Say Alhumdulillah No matter what. Soon you would realize it was worth it.

A Certain class of individuals if besieged there are more chances of constructive outcomes, on the contrary just broadcasting your message will not only lead to high costing but negligible results in the end.

For example; unlike the conventional ads Ufone attempted an entirely new approach to marketing via funny ads before these ads were meant to be very decent. This new approach catches everyone’s eye and hence they succeed.

The possibilities are limitless. An example is Football tournament’s poster all over a passer-by bridge, it appeared like the player is somersaulting from one road to another to catch the ball.

Embrace customer’s content

Use the customers’ reactions to your marketing content. It is accomplished by letting customers share their stories, exchange their ideas and even providing them tools to create a sort of ad for you.
