Ramadaan Realisations

Slms This Ramadaan has been particularly special for me. Having moved to the UK from South Africa 8 months ago, this was my first Ramadaan in this new place we have chosen for our Hijra - and how much we have learnt by moving away from home and experiencing a new city, a new country and starting a new life, Alhamdulillah I realise now how Islam is all about what YOU make it to be, how you create an Islamic "feeling", how you create an atmosphere of Islam and take it wherever you go - in your heart, thoughts and behaviour.

I realise now how Ramadaan is all about what you make of it. Working in a corporate environment, being out the whole day, you could almost miss the Ramadaan spirit - unless your spirit at home captures it. Its what you create in your space that makes a Ramadaan. I used radio stati…

FW: Let's Live the Life of an EAGLE...."

Bismillah
Some inspiration.... Enjoy!
Our lives are not determined by what happens to usbut by how we react to what happens,Not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.
A positive attitude causes a chain - reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes.

It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.

Let's change to make a change!!!

"If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results"

Proven Techniques for a Successful Positive Change this Ramadan

Proven Techniques for a Successful Positive Changethis RamadanYou CAN do it!!!The Messenger of Allah Muhammad[peace be upon him] has said,"Almighty Allah says, 'I treat my slave (man) according to his expectations from Me, and I am with him when he remembers me. If he remembers Me in his heart, I remember him in My heart…. if he walks towards Me, I run unto him."[Hadith-Qudsi]Make this Ramadan the month of “Change”..Are You Ready for it???"Change" is the vogue today.

Nice way to think of Ramadaan

"Ramadan is not about starving yourself," says Huma Siddiqui, "it's about taking a step back." To the author of the Pakistani cookbook "Jasmine in Her Hair," the month's daily fasts "force you to change your routine. You slow down and begin to reflect on your life— what's happened over the past year, where you're heading. Feeling hungry connects you to what's important to you, what you really want. We get so busy sometimes that we forget what it's all about. It feels good to take back the driver's seat, rather than letting life drive you."
