Life!

Slms Life is so funny, so funny.... Why do we get thrown these life lessons that we dont want! Allah knows best..in every situation is a lesson, but its soo hard sometimes to accept it! takes so much courage to find the lesson, but we need to embrace it as Allahs way of guiding us.. Inshallah Im in a hectic situation..boss stories..but this is my lifes lesson that I want to uncover Make dua! :)) M4life

Submission

Slms You know what, do we truly know what submission is? Im not sure we understand what it means truly? I certainly found it difficult to do..I really really want something (this job), but then my dua to Allah is that I completely submit to you Allah and only if this job is good for me, for my Islam and my future, then grant it to me IA. Otherwise, turn it away. I will do the most that I can do and leave the rest to Allah.. Easier said than done!! Can we truly let go and leave it to Allah? whats the balance between wanting something so bad and actually just leaving to Allah to judge whats best? we are so limited in our knowlegdge,only Allah sees the bigger picture. We have to trust in that. Truly trust and let go Inshallah, thats what I plan on doing right now. Oh Allah, in my limited knowledge this is my dream job and I really want it. But Allah what I want more is YOUR guidance and intervention. So please if this job is right for me and will bring me closer to my goals and…

Judgements

Slms I hate judgements...yes I know same topic..me again whining about people judjing how you speak...oh you dont sound happy...what do they expect you to do?!! :P

My Hajj

I cant beleive I have been for Hajj, Alhamdulillah :)
It was super fantastci, I loved the expereince of hajj, so symbolic and so powerful. I felt so close to Allah, I sae Him everywhere, I felt Him all the time...no where else in the world comes close...
Of course I missed home, but I didnt miss the worldliness of this place...
Going away really helped me break through the routine of my life..I no longer say"on saturdays I have to do this..." etc I just make up things as the time goes along. I also re evaluate everything..is this worth it? Is this worth my time? Can i push myself? Why cant I read more after salaah? What am I replacing with extra reading and sitting on the musallah?
I cant belive how I actually changed my dressing, Alhamdulillah! Wearing abaya/cloak now :) Look its hard, im not going to lie..at work anyway..but so far havent found a single reason strong enough to tell me to stop so here goes, IA!
Strong faith is the biggest lesson for me...believing in Allah and …

Marketing...

Slms So now im requested by management to "self market" myself! I dont know how to do this and still maintain my values of Islam..ie humility, no pride, not brining attention to yourself! a bit of a mixup ill say! They say that I do everything and all my work so well but I dont involve anyone in the process..i work hard and then present the end result ( which is always good, Alhamdulillah) but now they want me to keep telling people what im busy with, how hard Im working etc...i cant do that! in my religon we take least credit for everything..thats the beauty of it all...you shine more like that...these stupid western values of attention seeking..i dont know how to do it :( i dont know if i should be doing it! and also it seems liek in every circumstance i must punt myself ( not directly) but use every chance to show them what im upto, how proactive i am, how im interetsed in other things... tough one...need to think hard about this...have people before me done the…
