Islamic quotes

So when life decides to hit you in the face, you stand up and face it.
I was reminded today to not fight fire with fire, but rather show mercy and have humbleness even when people show the contrary.
You will face lots of people who will do anything to see you miserable and suffer, but it’s up to you whether you wish to endure through that or take their frustration and use it with your own wisdom. 
The community and people I’ve been growing up with haven’t been the greatest role models and time to time I face the ill-natured competitive, and vindictive people within my people. But thankfully, these people have taught me a huge lesson: I don’t want to grow up becoming them.

Alhamdulilah I’m surrounded by goodness through my thoughts, people and surroundings today because I have made the decision to simply be there. 
I have decided to place my being upon positivity and moving towards ambitions I once thought were impossible. It’s possible now because I kept going and held my head high when I thought I couldn’t. It’s all about your mindset - only you can have the final say. 

By virtue of being created as human beings, we will be tested. We will be thrown into countless trials, into situations that may arise unpleasant and awkward, and into times of difficulty when it seems as though there is little reason to hope.

Tests will come at us from every direction; events will test the very core of our character and the strength of our beliefs. And these are the tests we cannot afford to fail. And Allah, Glory be to Him, has not left us empty-handed.

Building our knowledge and our characters as Muslims is the only way

We are drowned in sins. Those who disobey Allah, cannot be His Friends whilst committing sins and living a sinful life. We should make a firm resolution, now, here from today we want to become the Friends of Allah and we want to remain the Friends of Allah until our departure from this world. Allah is the best friend, because His Friendship will be beneficial, not only in this world but also in the Hereafter.
How can one become the Friend of Allah Ta’aalaa? Who is the Friend of Allah?
