A One-to-One With Your Heart
 
If you’re standing in prayer in these last few days of Ramadan doing your best to ‘feel’ closer to Allāh (Subhānahū Wa Ta’ālā) yet somehow feeling distanced; if you’re wondering why those around you are all crying whilst you’re completely emotionless; if you wish you could be of those with soft hearts and tearful eyes in Ramadan, but it doesn’t seem to happen, and you fail to reach that level in your spiritual worship – then it’s time to have a serious one-to-one conversation with your heart.
 
Ask your heart: why is it so cold? Why do the Words of its Creator have no effect or impact on it at all? Is it that arrogant that it doesn’t need its Lord?! Why is it so hard? Why are no emotions expressed for either fear or joy of being with its Creator? Why is it a hypocrite? It’ll cry watching a movie when it knows it’s not real but will not cry when it hears the truth about its ultimate destination?!
 
Keep digging deeper until you find the answer. Get your heart to break in front of Allāh (Subhānahū Wa Ta’ālā) this Ramadan. There’s no sweeter feeling than a sincere heart that cries out to Allāh. Don’t let Ramadan go without having cried even once in front of your Lord Insha’Allāh.

A beautiful gesture from Lebanon - names of Palestinians killed by Israel in the last two weeks were hung on huge banners in Raouché, Beirut during a demonstration against the latest Zionist assault on Gaza, July 22, 2014. Protesters also threw flowers into the sea. Over 600 people have been killed (as of the morning of July 23, 2014), at least 25% of whom were children.

"How wonderful is the affair of a believer! For his entire affair is good, and this applies only to a believer. When good befalls him, he is thankful and thus, it is good for him, and when evil befalls him, he is patient and thus, it is [also] good for him. And that is for the believer alone."

— The Messenger of Allaah [sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam], reported by Muslim in his Saheeh [4/2295 no.2999] from Suhayb [radiAllaahu `anhu].

001. Give yourself realistic goals this Ramadaan, but don’t underestimate yourself. All that stands between you and the needed change you hope to see in yourself is discipline. Discipline your nafs. Discipline your thoughts. Discipline your emotions. Discipline your actions.

Quote reblogged from Pearls of Wisdom with 229 notes

From amongst the signs of Laylatul-Qadar is that it is a calm night and the believer’s heart is delighted and at peace with it, and he becomes active in doing good actions, and the sun on the following morning rises clearly without any rays.

Feeling lonely, is probably the best feeling because only God knows how you feel. 

And that’s all that matters.

The blessed Laylatul Qadr (Night of Decree) can be found in any of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, which are the most blessed nights of the year. As such, we should increase our worship and devotion during this period.

NO TIME WASTING: We must make a firm intention that during these blessed 10 nights, we will not take part in idle talk, watch TV, play computer games or spend time on the social media. There are 355 days in the year for all that – if you really cannot resist. This is just 10 nights! There will be indeed an utter loss and regret for those of us who waste these blessed 10 nights.

REMAIN IN I’TIKAF: The best way of catching the blessed night is to remain in I’tikaf!

Quote reblogged from ok you can do this with 1 note

Goodness does not consist in turning your face towards East or West. The truly good are those who believe in God and the Last Day, in the angels, the Scripture, and the prophets; who give away some of their wealth, however much they cherish it, to their relatives, to orphans, the needy, travelers, and beggars, and to liberate those in bondage; those who keep up the prayer and pay the prescribed alms; who keep pledges whenever they make them; who are steadfast in misfortune, adversity, and times of danger. These are the ones who are true, and it is they who are aware of God.
— Al-Baqarah 2:177 (via suitably)

Sincere repentance is that the slave (shows) regret for what has elapsed (of his sins) and is determined not to return to them.
