GEMS: Journey of Faith (Part 13)
◆ Have we done our job (practising Islam) the best that we can or are we just complaining?
◆ Our words and conduct may become the reason for someone to be interested in Islam or digusted with Islam. We are representing our deen whether we like it or not, whether we want it or not.
◆ You will not be successful nor creative enough in the field that you don't like. You must pursue the field that you like.
◆ Read Ayatul Kursi after your solah as Rasulullah SAW said that whoever does this, then nothing will come between him and Jannah except for death.
◆ Believers should have the attitude of wanting to excel in halal matters better than others. Competitiveness in doing good deeds!
◆ When you lose something precious, always ask Allah SWT to replace it with something better.
“When a calamity strikes one of you, then let him say: ‘Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. O Allah, I seek reward with You for my affliction, so reward me for it, and replace it for me with something better (Innā lillāhi wa innā ilaihi rāji`ūn, Allāhumma `indaka aḥtasibu muṣībatī fa’jurnī fīhā wa abdilnī minhā khair).’
◆ You are on a battlefield against shaytaan. Always wear your armour! Recite your adzkar and dua in the morning and evening.
◆ Those who turn away from Allah's reminder, their life will be miserable no matter how much is in their possession.
