Don't be average...

Believers are not meant to be average...
Most people are people who like to blend into the crowd. They are average in their studies, go on to get average jobs, and lead average lives.
But believers are not meant to be average, they are meant to stand out. They are meant to be seen as “strange” for all that they wish to achieve in both this world and the next.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Islam began as something strange and will revert to being strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.”
Do not fear being a “stranger” in wanting to follow the footsteps of our pious predecessors. They were never average! They were people of Action, people of Determination, people of lifelong Commitment.
When you stand up and reach towards higher goals, those around you want you to sit back down, to lower your standards and to be average just like them. Greatness makes them uncomfortable.
Be great anyway!

parable of life

Imam Al Ghazali gives us an amazing parable. The parable of a man who walks through the forest, and as he is walking, he is calm. suddenly a lion jumps and starts chasing him. so he runs and runs as fast as he could. then he sees a well in front of him, and he jumps into it and grabs onto a rope and he is in safety. 
But then he notices a snake beneath him that just wants to bite him. And the mean becomes very scared now. The snake is down and the lion is up. So what can he do? Slowly he sees two mice coming in, one black and one white. the mice starts chewing the rope. Now he really is frightened, and in this spare, he notices on the wall a honey comb. sweet honey! So the man dips his finger into it and starts eating from it. Suddenly he forgets about the lion, snake and mice. 
Imam Ghazali says this is the parable of life!
The lion is death chasing us, it can jump up from anytime anywhere. We are not sure when it will hit us.
The rope the man was holding onto was his life.
The snake beneath him is the grave that is waiting for man.
And the two mice, the black and white mice, the black one is a night, and the white one is the day. this is eating out our daily lives. day/night night/day , time passes and death is certain. 
And the honeycomb is the distractions that are all around us. sometimes to some extent that it can take us away from remembering that death is certain. 
Let's all remember Allah and Death at all times, Ameen 

So, this is a little story which inspired me and thought i would share it! :o)

Let's be grateful...?!

Hadith of the day :)

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “…if the son of Adam has one valley, he will wish that he had a second, and if he had two valleys, he would wish that he had a third. The stomach of the son of Adam will be filled only with dust (i.e., he is never satisfied)…” (Reported by Ahmad, 5/219; Saheeh al-Jaami’, 1781). 

let’s use gratitude to learn to enjoy what we have rather than fretting over what we don’t.

Steadfast onto the Deen

The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said to his Companions: "After you there are going to be days of patience. The patience during that time is like the one clutching on to a hot coal. The one who works and does good deeds during that time will receive the reward of fifty men who do deeds similar to him." (Hasan)
