Oh Muslimah…have YOU thought about what is REALLY Important?
I wish you a warm salaam…I hope tonight is a beautiful night for all of us especially for those leaving to the Holy land. Something to remember.
My dear sisters in Islam,
I used to admire those persons who are smart, very wealthy and very successful in their life and career.
Today, I have chosen to change whom I admire.
I now admire those people — although simple in dress and actions — which are successful in their deen and in the eyes of Allah swt. They are those who are steadfast in following the word of Allah swt.
I also used to choose anger because I felt that my pride was put down after people treated me rudely, gossiped about me, hurting me with bad words.
Now, I choose to appreciate and be thankful because I believe of the love that comes after I am able to forgive and persevere.
I used to choose to chase after life and material things, working hard to save and compile as much as I could…after awhile, I realize my needs are only to eat and drink for this day and to release it from my stomach.
Now I choose appreciation with what I have and I choose how I use my time today…filled with love and good use for everyone…
Before I thought that I could make my parents, my family and my friends…later…if I am successful with my life…
In reality…what really makes most of them happy isn’t that…it is just how I act with them…
I choose to make them happy with what I have…
I used to choose to make amazing plans for my life…in reality I witness my family and friends go so quickly to meet Allah swt.
…There are no guarantees I will see the sun tomorrow.
…There are no guarantees I will be able to breathe tomorrow.
Right now I choose to add only what pleases Allah to my big plan…because the most important thing is that I will be ready if one day my name is called to meet Allah swt.
Be ready to die.
