Inevitable Tests

Do the people think that they will be left to say, “We believe” and they will not be tried? But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars. Or do those who do evil deeds think they can outrun Us? Evil is what they judge.Al-Qur’aan suurah Al-‘Ankabut 29:2-4

Belief is not a mere word we say; it is a reality that imposes duties, a trust that carries requirements and a struggle that demands patience and perseverance. It is not enough that people should claim to believe. Continue reading

Path to Success and Happiness-No.15

When you bear every test with patience and hope, you go up not down. When you pass one test, you are climbing one stair upward. The hardest test you face in your daily life is the test of heart (inner tests). To remove pride, envy, hatred, suspicion, confusion, showing off (ar-riya), craving for fame and etc , you should struggle hard. Every time you struggle to pass these tests, you are elevated, you get peace of mind and tranquility. So endure tests with patience, striving and tawakkul (relying upon Allah), make du’aa to pass every test. Remember that degree of your honour, happiness and success is not measured by your wealth or position rather it is measured how much your heart is pure. Due to this hardest test is the inner test. Heart changes in every time, it is not constant. So to purify your heart, struggle hard.

Minor Mistakes

Away from the ears of other girls, several girls sit in a corner in the school talking in confidence, and she sits among them listening. One of them said, “He loves me and says he wants to marry me,” and takes from her purse a gift that he gave her. Another girl talks about her friend’s jealousy and his protesting that she goes to the market by herself.

Will They Not Reflect?

People, however, tend to overlook the truth because their hearts are not touched by its invigorating light. Hence, they remain preoccupied with petty concerns, lost in a perpetual maze. They are only awakened when faced with inevitable doom, looking at the suffering that awaits them and enduring a humiliatingly and strong reproach: Continue reading
