Islamic quotes

So often we think that Allah only tests us with hardships, but this isn’t true. Allah also tests with ease. He tests us with na`im (blessings) and with the things we love, and it is often in these tests that so many of us fail. We fail because when Allah gives us these blessings, we unwittingly turn them into false idols in the heart.
Don’t let the past haunt you or the future bother you. Do you have any guarantee that you will live to see tomorrow? Or do you think you can change the past by dwelling over it? The answer is a big NO! Then why spoil your and your loved ones’ present by dwelling on it? Never let the ‘if only’ bug enter your mind. By doing so you are handing over the keys to shaytaan to flood you with negative and evil thoughts. Learn from your mistakes, beautify your present.
—  Dr. Bilal Philips
If Allah has written for you happiness, no one can steal that from you, and if He has written for your heart to break, then no-one can mend it but He, so always put your trust in Allah.
Your life is nothing more than a love story. Between you and God. Nothing more. Every person, every experience, every gift, every loss, every pain is sent to your path for one reason and one reason only: to bring you back to Him
