It's a Purification!

It's not what happens to us - but how we handle it and who we become through it.

Each trial and tribulation is purifying us of our sins, helping us to grow stronger and is a step towards our ultimate home - Jannah.

God already knows we can handle it - He (swt) says so in the Qur'an that He does not burden a soul more than it can handle.

I think it's out upbringing and social conditioning which determines our actions and reactions.

If we truly grasp the meaning that we are being purified and we become stronger then we'd all look forward to our trials and tribulations.

Going forward let's check our actions and reactions insha'Allah.

Do they ultimately serve us to become better or make us worse?

I know you want to be a better human.

Go work it! :)

What you thinking?

...Do you let the weeds in your garden grow? 

How do they make you feel? 

You eventually sort them out right? 

Time to sort out our thoughts!

And right now is the perfect time - as it's spring - and it's the time of new beginnings.

Take control of your thoughts before they take control of you!

Here's a quick test...

'What are you thinking right now?'


I bet (betting is haraam) that you went completely blank for a split second then.

What does this prove?

It proves that we have control of our thoughts and if a thought pops up in our head then we can zap it instantly.

But here's the thing - you and I are so used to our comfort-pity-zone that we allow one thought to go into another then another and then another!

Did you know that our thoughts shape up our actions and behaviour?

And did you also know that if we keep on thinking thoughts they eventually become our beliefs.

And if we don't stop there then these beliefs become convictions!

It is scary right?

Now go have a reflection moment and think about what you think about and what your beliefs and convictions are.

And if you don't like them then change them.

Sound simple?

It is!

As i always say it's us humans who like to complicate things for ourselves.

Now go think pretty thoughts and have an awesome week ahead! :)

I feel like a Spring Chicken!

The sun is out and the weather is getting warmer - alhamdulilah.

Spring is all about 'New Beginnings'.

The winter time is to rest and relax and sprig time is time to get back into action.

I was born in March - so spring time - or March itself - is very special for me.

I usually go into a mental hibernation from November to end of February.

Right now though I'm back full in action and full of energy - walhamdulilah - and looking forward to an awesome summer insha'Allah.

So c'mon, join me now and let's work on making those dreams a reality!

Happy Spring! :)

How 'Outstanding' are YOU?

Have you ever felt like you don't fit in? Like you're 'different' to others and then you get the 'looks' from everyone coz you don't fit in?

I have! Like for that last 4 decades! :(

Anyways, i was told by an awesome friend who's always encouraging my crazy ideas that I'm 'Uniquely Different!' and to stay that way!

I shall! :D

What about you? Are you a fit-inner or out-standingly different? 

Do your soul a favour and be outstandingly and uniquely different!


Because YOU have been blessed with skills and abilities and knowledge to not only make a positive difference in your own world but to also make an awesome contribution to humanity.

YOU have something that the world needs!

Count your blessings - say alhamdulilah.

Now go have an outstandingly awesome day! :)
