My advice to you is to be conscious of Allah and steadfast in your religion. Do not yearn for the world, and do not be seduced by it. Do not resent anything you have missed in it. Proclaim the truth; work for the next world. Oppose the oppressor and support the oppressed.
-Imam Ali ( A.S.)
Likeee honestly sometimes I just read hadiths or quotes from the Quran and *think* if people would just follow those few lines they would be set! (myself included).
-This world is filled with Fitna, everywhere you turn theres something that is displeasing to Allah. Hey this life is supposed to test us and it certanly does if you don't have strong will power and restraint!
1.Surround yourself with good friends, && if you can't find them then solitude is better then the latter. (trust, I rather hang out with myself then those who will bring me down)
2. Try to elimante the fitna, if that means deleting some people off face book or changing your phone number do it!! Anything is worth the cause, really in the end its between you and Allah don't allow some trivial thing to obsecure your final goal. (Goal of reaching in Jennah Firdous inshaAllah)
3. When you see your friends "going out" having fun so to speak, you know the kind that people quote "you only live once" and not in that halaal way. REMEMBER ALLAH. Realize that those people who flaunt their jahillieah ways are only following shaitans footsteps. Once again keep the end in mind!!!!
4. Whenever your confused, frustrated with whatever outcome or sitution your in remember what Umar ibn Khattab used to say: "I do not care in what state I wake up in the morning, whether it is good or bad, since i do not know what is good for me or what is bad"
... MashaAllah such strong belief in al-Qadr. (Divine destiny)!
