Attitude.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.

"And whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He opens his breast to Islam; and whomsoever He wills to send astray, He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky. Thus Allah puts the wrath on those who believe not."

- Quran [6:125] (via muslimimmigrant)

(via 2allahireturn)

"The best dawah is your manners, and the best naseeha is your example."

"Sometimes we can’t see the way out of a situation nor the solution to a problem. Sometimes it’s so hard not to give up and lose hope that things can change or get better. But it’s at those times that we need reliance (tawwakul) most. It wouldn’t be called trust if we could see the way out or the solution ourselves. Perhaps Al Wakeel (The Trustee) is making Himself known to you through a situation that you can neither control on your own, nor can you solve. And what greater gift could you be given than to know Him?"

"Sometimes you’ll come across someone who isn’t the smartest, wealthiest, or most popular but they have the best Akhlaq (manners). Keep their company."

“And when such people feel trapped by life, by financial hardship, by pain, by loneliness, by fear, by heartbreak, or sadness, all they have to do is turn to Allah, and He always makes a way out for them. Know that this is not some feel-good theory. It is a promise. A promise made by Allah Himself, who says in the Qur’an:

'…And for those who fear Allah, He (ever) prepares a way out, And He provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And if any one puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him…' (65:2-3)”

- Yasmin Mogahed


"And be not like those who forgot Allah, so He made them forget themselves. […]"

- Qur’an 59:19

"Its easy to give to those who give back. The real test of love is to give to those who can give you nothing in return."
