  1. Mashallah a very powerful article. It was very inspiring, and I can see that it has been written with care. I found the opening just grabbed my attention. We can learn so much from Islam. Jazakhallah.

  2. Assalamu aliakum,

    This is a great article Jazakillah khair.

    However, I dont agree with this:

    "So far Allah is pleased with me, I am careless what anyone else thinks!"

    We dont know if Allah is pleased with us or not, we can only hope so, and keep working toward attaining His pleasure. :)

  3. I love this article its words are so simple yet so deep :) specially the following:
    “I became convinced in four things (i.e. that these four things penetrated my heart). One, I am convinced that no one else will eat the provision Allah has decreed for me, so I am content. Two, I am convinced that no one else is going to do good works except me, so I am busy doing them myself. Three, I am certain death shall come unexpectedly, so I am busying myself in expectation of it. And four, I am certain I shall never escape the sight of Allah, so I am shy to disobey Him while He is watching.”
    “A grandfather told his grandson, that inside all humans “There is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.”

    “One wolf is evil and ugly: He is anger, envy, war, greed, self-pity, sorrow, regret, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, selfishness and arrogance.”

    “The other wolf is beautiful and good: He is friendly, joyful, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, justice, fairness, empathy, generosity, true, compassion, gratitude, and deep VISION.

    The grandson looked up at his grandfather and asked, “Which one will win?” The grandfather replied, “The one you choose to feed!”
    A meesage can be understood more easily when it is part of a story so the reader can imagine it in a certain context :) Thank you Jazakoum Allah kol Khayr

  4. this is such a wonderful article with every word of thinking positive ….. simply putting a person in self analysis
    jazakAllah :)

  5. i luv this page……ur articles/write ups have made soo much impact in my life. May Allah continue to reward the team/person behind this and bless u all with Al-jannatul firdaus – AMIN!

  6. Jazakum llahu khairan. So motivating and the article is simply put. The first solution got me on. Reliance on Allah. Examples of the faithful mothers – Hajar, maryam etc .was on point.
