“Dhikr (remembrance of Allah) is to the heart as water is to a fish; see what happens to a fish when it is taken out of water”
-- Ibn Taymiyyah


The more anger you feel, the greater is your reward for controlling it.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “The strong man is not the one who can overpower others (in wrestling). Rather, the strong man is the one who controls himself when he gets angry (Reported by Ahmed, 2/236)”.


Quiz time!
Which deed stands in the way of calamity?


Everything you do in this life will be judged according to your intention. If your intentions are pure, even the smallest good deed can be a source to attain Allah's pleasure. If your intentions are flawed, even the biggest acts of worship can go to waste.


How do you take care of your health?


We keep delaying Hajj till old age, when we are not even promised the dawn of tomorrow.


Do you depend too much on people?
The Prophet (peace be upon him) reiterated that Allah is the only One we can rely upon. In fact, his own life proved to be an example. He (peace be upon him) lost his immediate family at a very young age.


Your good name and fame is nothing but Allah’s gracious covering of your sins. Be humble.


Which wife of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was known for her humor?


When a person enters his house and mentions the name of Allah at the time of entering it and while eating the food, Satan says (addressing himself: You have no place to spend the night and no evening meal; but when he enters without mentioning the name of Allah, the Satan says: You have found a place to spend the night, and when he does not mention the name of Allah while eating food, he (the Satan) says: You have found a place to spend the night and evening meal.
[Sahih Muslim]

"The real patience is at the first stroke of a calamity." - Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)


Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well and that if they do wrong you will do wrong. But (instead) accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil." - Sunan At-Tirmidhi

Sometimes we feel as if Allah has gone far away from us, when it is we who have strayed far away from Allah. Do your best to remember Allah always. He is closer to your than your jugular vein.


Discontentment is the source of so much unahppiness and stress. Dear brothers and sisters, do your best, leave the rest to Allah.


Feeling stressed? Pray for Allah's ease. The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O Allah, nothing is easy but what You make easy, for You ease the grief of whomever You will.” Sahih ibn Hibban


We often imagine Allah punishing us for the wrongs we did in our lives. However, Allah tells us in the Qur’an that He is the Most Merciful. His mercy exceeds His anger and we, as Muslims, need to remember this.
