“Behold, ye prefer the life of this world, but the life of the Hereafter is better and more enduring” [Al-Qur’an 87:16-17]

A quick and gentle reminder before I retire for the night:

Shaitan decorates the evil and makes it look beautiful, so that we are attracted to it. So beware my dear brothers and sisters, as this time and age is full of temptations. You may have heard this often, so do not take this lightly. Evil and bad deeds are real, they can be the subtlest thought or the smallest action, as it is for good deeds, they are no less real: from the smallest intention to its biggest execution.

Let’s bear in mind that all we do has an effect on our souls, we are either polishing it or polluting it. Over time the soul will either shine or crumble; so let’s work hard towards the former.

Of course, Allah is constantly testing His servants, to make our journey towards Him all the more worthwhile J the Qur’an states :

“….the (human) soul is certainly prone to evil, unless my Lord do bestow His Mercy” [12:53]

Let’s cleanse our souls with plenty of Zikr (remembrance) and ‘Ibadah (acts of worship). The soul yearns to be close to The Creator, whence it originally was – I hope to share more about this in later entries inshaAllah – so don’t deprive your soul of its needs.

SubhanAllah, wal hamduliLlah, wa laa ilaaha IllAllah wAllahu Akbar.

May Allah grant us the guidance and willpower to remain humble and steadfast to His way. We ask Him to be our eyes, our tongues and our hands, that we may engage in only what is right and lawful, Ameen.

    Assalamu’alaikum wrt wb 🙂

    And let this be a reminder for us all. Allah has tasked us with a mission! Blessed with the highest status on Earth, let us not put ourselves in shame and humiliation, but live up to our greatness!

    Spiderman’s uncle once said “With great power, comes great responsibility”
    And Allah has said something like “Just because you say La ilaa ha illallah, I wont test you? I have tested the previous prophets and messengers, so who are you?”

    Lets face it…”After Hardship, comes Ease”

    Wasalam wrt wb~

    “Do men think that they will be left alone on saying,”We believe”, and that they will not be tested? We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false” [29:2-3]
