    Can we all take a moment and thank Allah for all the good things that are happening to us and around us constantly? Alhamdulillah, thank You, Ya Rab, for your kindness and generosity. Thank You for keeping us sane and healthy. Thank You for all the smiles we are able to spread and the hugs we are able to give. Thank You for consistently having so much mercy upon us that we forget that we do not deserve any of this.

    You and I are not Muslim, because we are born in a Muslim family. You and I are not Muslim, because you read a book about Islam, or saw a Youtube video and decided to become Muslim. We are Muslim, because Allah chose us.

    Allah chose us.

    Nouman Ali Khan (via servantofthemostforgiving)


    And Allah chose ALL those who decided to convert to Islam whether it be through; a book, a YouTube video or whatever. I was born Muslim because it was maktoub by Allah SWT.

    If you’re HURT by people, who share the same blood as you,
    …remember Yusuf (alaihis-salaam), who was betrayed by his own brothers.

    If you find your PARENTS opposing you,
    ….remember Ibrahim (alaihis-salaam), whose father helped build the idols.

    If you’re STUCK with a problem where there’s no way out,
    ….remember Yunus (alaihis-salaam) stuck in the belly of a whale.

    If you’re ill & your body cries with PAIN,
    ….remember Ayoob (alaihis-salaam) who was more ill than you.

    If someone SLANDERS you,
    ….remember Ai’sha (radhi allahu anha) who was slandered throughout the city.

    If you’re LONELY,
    ….recall Aadam (alaihis-salaam) who was created alone.

    If you CAN’T SEE any LOGIC around you,
    …think of Nuh (alaihis-salaam) who built an ark without questioning.

    If you are MOCKED by your own relatives;
    … think of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)

    Let’s take a lesson of patience & perseverance from them, in’sha’Allah!

    Allahu Akbar!
