Look on the bright side...Smile...and say Alhamdulillah!

Salaam alaykum,

Firstly I want to say I don’t think I could EVER say Alhamdulillah enough, Never, Ever!

This is because recently I feel I was put through a little hardship and before this my life had been great, nothing *really* to complain of except I didn’t realise this. I didn’t realise this after that little test. When I was put through it, I thought my whole life was going to change, a change for the worse, I couldn’t help but worry, I thought Allah (swt) wasn’t listening to my duaas, I thought Wrong.

Love Your Parents

[quote]A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree.
A little boy loved to come and play around it every day.
He climbed to the treetop, ate the apples, took a nap under the shadow...
He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him.
Time went by...the little boy had grown up,
And he no longer played around the tree every day.
One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad.

'Come and play with me,' the tree asked the boy.

'I am no longer a kid, I do not play around trees anymore'
The boy replied.

'I want toys. I need money to buy them.'

'Sorry, but I do not have money...

But you can pick all my apples and sell them.
So, you will have money.

' The boy was so excited.

He grabbed all the apples on the tree and left happily.

Do Good Anyway

People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, It is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Am I ready to die?

[quote]Am I ready to die?

It was early in the morning at four,
When death knocked upon a bedroom door,

Who is there? The sleeping one cried.
I'm Angel of Death, let me inside.

At once, the man began to shiver,
As one sweating in deadly fever,

He shouted to his sleeping wife,
Don't let him take away my life.

Please go away, O Angel of Death!
Leave me alone; I'm not ready yet.

My family on me depends,
Give me a chance, O please prepense!

The angel knocked again and again,
Friend! I'll take your life without a pain,

This your soul God requires,
I come not with my own desire.

Bewildered, the man began to cry,
O Angel I'm so afraid to die,

I'll give you gold and be your slave,
Don't send me to the unlit grave.

The Adolesence Myth

[quote]Prepare yourselves, people, for a revelation sure to shock you and possibly turn your life upside down. Particularly if you’re a teenager.
There is no such thing as a teenager in Islam.
All right, so let’s first define what exactly a teenager is. According to the dictionary, a teenager is: a juvenile between the onset of puberty and maturity.
In this Western culture, a teenager is anyone between the ages of 13 and 19. It’s also a period of time where we’re pretty much expected to be irresponsible, immature, and do really stupid things. We can do the most idiotic things on the face of the earth, and we have a ready excuse: “Aw, man, I’m just a teenager!”

I am...

In a world of hate
I am love.

In a world of Shame,
I stand blessed.

In a world of Chaos,
I am Peace.

In a world of Haste,
I am Patience.

In a world of Unjust,
I am Fair.

In a world of Defiance,
I am obedient.

In a world of Evil,
I am Good.

In a world of Despair,
I am Hope.

In a world of falling Religion,
I am Strong.

In a world of darkness
I am light.

In a world like this,
I am Islam.
