  1. Subhanallah I loved it. It was exactly what I needed at the moment and I can’t seem to get over how perfectly you’ve helped me solve out a few issues. Subhanallah.

    Sometimes I think the words ‘work hard’ seem daunting, because I myself feel a bit overwhelmed especially if I think I’m already trying my level best. But I’ve learned one thing, and that is hard work doesn’t necessarily have to be difficult if it means something to you.

    If you’re working towards something that’s really special to you, it may not feel like hard work, it may just be a bit challenging but you’ll have that worthy feeling. Others may look at you and think that you’re struggling so much, when in reality you’re perfectly content.

    I think that feeling is important, because it’s what motivates us to do better. It’s not just about keeping the goal in mind, but about having a good time with the work too. I

    Allah bless you sister, Jazakallahu khair ♥

    • Assalam alai kum wa rahamatullahi wa barakatahu sister Faiza,

      i understand your feelings. physical and emotional fatigue overwhelms us and then of course when we dont really “see” our selves getting what “we” set for our selves.. ;) it tends to be very disappointing.

      a “vitamin pill” i found in the Quran for this problem is ” And O my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in showers and increase you in strength [added] to your strength. And do not turn away, [being] criminals.” 11:52

      i cannot tell you how much this verse has helped me overcome any kind of fatigue.. and helped me go on.. and also.. you know when i am bombarded with things and i really want to do my studies or ibaadah.. i started seeking forgiveness Instead of panicking and getting upset :D

      so carry on.. its Only Allah swt we are doing what we are doing it all for.. :) may ALlah swt make it easy for All of us.. ameen
