  1. Is it me or does anyone else feel that they are actually in the therapist’s office?!

    I’m loving this series, I’ve been excited all day waiting for episode 2.
    Thanks for giving real world examples, LOVELY input!

    You got me hooked, now I need to wait until Thursday for the next episode. Can’t wait!
    Thanks again


  2. I have learnt so much from this Alhamdulillah. Hope I’m able to remember this whenever a situation may call for it.

  3. I loved loved LOVED episode 1 and I just couldn’t wait for this one. Ma shaa allaah, sister, you write so beautifully!

    It truly hit me while reading this that there really is no ‘if’…I am someone who reminisces constantly over what could have happened…now I learn that to truly trust in Allaah’s decree is to never bother about the ‘what ifs’.

    Cannot wait for the next one!

  4. Wow masha Allah, this series is deep. Jazaka Allah khairan for sharing this series! As a recent psychology graduate, I’m absolutely moved by this story and the way Lily had dealt with her client, which was quite inspiring. Her ability to couple the beautiful teachings of Islam with psychology, subahan Allah. Can’t wait to read the next one! :)

      • aww Jazaka Allah khair for your kind insight and du’as! :’)

        May Allah s.w.t bless you and your family, and increase you in faith, blessings, and happiness in this duniya and akhirah, ameen! <3

  5. I love this. I feel like it is the truth, we usually try denying the facts to a situation because it means we will have to change, and change is something hard and can be very frightening. But we must realize, to change is to truly live and take beauty from this world. May Allah (swt) give us the ability to change ourselves for the better, Ameen!

  6. Jazakallah hu Kair
    Indeed we Muslims believe that Islam is the best of all religions so can be Muslims if we follow the Quran an the Sunnah of our prophet saw
    It’s Islam that brings us out from darkness to light that’s what if Allah wants to intend good with some one he afflicts him with trails and increase his knowledge
    May Allah swt grant us the true success jannah a reward to a mooin and moominah
    The author has nicely created a scene how Allah swt choose ppl among us to be a reason for someone’s guidance the therapist has entirely changed her view with his knowledge of Islam
    The articles comes with a lot of morals one needs to access it keenly it’s all about to understand Islam to make our lives better and to help other also indeed in it is a great reward
    To us the therapist are you miss Lilly s Mohsen may Allah reward you for your efforts.

  7. Assalamu Alaikum, Ma Sha Allah, whatever you counsel in this story is what I want many people to know. In Sha Allah, I’ll be sharing this story to so many people. Keep writing and keep inspiring. In Sha Allah. :)

  8. I ,as a father always look at my kids as the lovely little creatures that are a piece,(really the whole) of my heart, SURELY ,they always need my love ,protection and my continuous guidance , but very time I read Lilly’s articles I realize it is finally the time to change the way I look at my little (GROWNUP) kids,but I admit I never did,it seems that fathers become stubborn with age. My little (GROWNUP) lilly I enjoyed your article and you proved well how lucky we are to be Moslims,so go on with all my Duaa.
    Your loving STUBBORN Dad

    • I think the only thing that keeps me going steady is your support and both my parents’ duaa…
      May Allah keep you safe and happy and healthy for all of us!
      I love you dad

      Your little grownup daughter :)

      • Alhamdullilah! Masha Allah for you and your Dad darling Lily…was just marveling at how you’ve responded to every single comment when I saw his post….You are most honored to have each other.
        May Allah bless you both.

  9. Subhanallah! I love the way Lily dealt with her client and somehow still gives her privacy even in relating it to us and yet does dawah to the reader….its so well woven.
    My learning points are more in reinforcements of my beleif in Tawakkul and the fact Allah KNOWS all…once that is the case, life is sunnier…and then you can spend your time striving for His pleasure instead of worrying….more productive too!
    Are these series fictional?
    O…and sharing toooooooo

  10. Wow! this series is worth reading so consoling at the same time,there are so many things i can relate to and at the same time it gives me hope Alhamdulilah !!!

  11. Brilliant and incredibly insightful! How can we say it, the most basic pillar of Islam, and not expect our belief system to be tested…we have to deep down believe that Allah has chosen what is right for us!

  12. Asa. It is so relevant in this world.the story of ours n theirs n truth r different n v shd believe in taqdeer — decree from Allah.
    I am happy I deal in the sameway at home n in society.
    This article gave me more strength n courage to deal here in soceity.

  13. SubHanukkah! This was an amassing insightful insidant. How sometimes we don’t see the other side . May Allah bless you for inspiring and educating us through these series. Jazakallah khair!

  14. I love the simplicity in writing as it goes straight to the heart!
    Keep shining my love, the best is yet to come ;)

  22. Monday and Thursday are now the most beloved days for me ,for being able to read more about real life problems and your very inspiring solutions ..
    Jazaki Allah khairan for such a brilliant series.
    Realy really enjoy reading your articles ?

  23. Masha Allah…
    Firstly for me the first episode was so amazing that i comment here it was written for me, but this second part was the best, it really clears and open my eyes and mind, and am also strongly moved with the word “if”. because it moved my life so much and i also learned some things Also…..May S.w.t Bless you all for this inspiring message. Thanks and i really appreciate your effort. And i will be waiting for your next episode insha Allah, May we all have a successful Ramadan….Amen

  24. Assalamu alaykum. I agree that ‘if’keeps us in the past, living in regret. We give people and events so much power over our lives when Allah should be the overriding power.

  25. This the best thing i’ve ever read( and I don’t exxagerate)! May Allah keep your pen going.there is magic in your words.I just wish I got meet some people like.May Allah protect you from the evil eye.Aameen!

  26. “The word ‘if’ doesn’t fit in our religion because it gives random luck so much power! It fuels our anger to blame others for what Allah subḥānahu wa ta’āla (glorified and exalted be He) had already decreed. ” BRAVO!!!

    Assalam-o-alaikum dear Sis Lilly, you always amazed me with your articles. I loved the subject you gave to every episode to this series: Trust, peace,………
    May Allah bless you with more beneficial Knowledge. Ameen.

  27. The tips I learnt is to put total trust in Allah for every life situations, never judge anyone because u don’t know wat exactly they might be going tru, and lastly always be there for ur parents.
