    Re: food for thought

    “Try to become an embodiment of compassion and mercy in your daily life. Do not wait for a situation to occur that will call out these virtues in you. Rather, seek out opportunities where you can manifest them along with all of the other prophetic virtues. Do not live your life passively waiting to be used, roused or stimulated into action by events. Live an active life wherein you become the one who is initiating acts of goodness and kindness in all that you do. Be an embodiment of the truth you represent. Let your words and comportment convey the dignity of the believer to all that you meet.” – Imam Zaid Shakir
    The sunnah is like the ark of Noah, whoever embarks upon it reaches salvation and whoever refuses is drowned.

      Isn't it amazing how we always somehow end up disappointed when we are trying to please people but when we do things with the intention of pleasing Allah, we are always statisfied and happy? If we try to live our life trying to please people, we will never be truly happy but if we do everything to please Allah, we will attain the true happiness and it will be good for mankind as well. Forget what the impious people say and think, carry on with your good work and do everything to please Allah because truly that's all you should care about, He only asks us to do good for our own benefit.

          Don't be too harsh on people. Sometimes, their behaviour or attitude towards you might have absolutely NOTHING to do with you. You probably don't know the hidden demons they are facing in their lives or the stuff that's happening inside the four walls of their homes. Just be kind. Simple.
          Sometimes that's enough, sometimes, it could mean the world to them. Gentleness and kindness beautifies everything.

                      Once you've done a good deed, move on. Don't think or speak about it. Don't seek attention or recognition. He will surely reward you openly.

                        Keeping secrets others have entrusted us with is part of our duty. We would be committing grave injustice by “leaking” what we held in confidence. Many take this for granted, thinking that the password is “don’t tell anybody but…” yet even that is a sin. It destroys good relations & wreaks havoc in society.It is also advised NOT to share secrets unnecessarily in the first place. Many people have regretted this.(Mufti Ismail Menk)

                            Dear Muslim ..
                            Allah has endowed you with precious commodities. He's given you glances, thoughts, movements, droplets of sweat, tears and blood.
                            Therefore beware of wasting any of them, but rather ensure that you invest them in that which will bring about for you the greatest return in the hereafter.

                              Perfection in conduct and character should be an aspiration for the self Not a standard by which we measure others against.

                                As I look back on my life, I realise that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good; I was actually being re-directed to something better. You must convince your heart that whatever Allah has decreed is most appropriate and most beneficial for you.
