allah in heart

On this last Friday of Ramadan I hope Allah replaces your sadness and worries with happiness and content. I hope Allah eases your hearts and makes them soft to one another. I hope Allah opens all the doors that you've worked for and hoped for. I hope this Ramadan we've let go of our egos and replaced them with forgiveness and genuine happiness for one another. May Allah bless this Friday and may we live to see another Ramadan ❤️
God tests His worshippers with many different hardships, He makes them engage in different struggles, and He makes them undergo multiple misfortunes. All this in order to extract arrogance from their hearts, to establish humbleness in their selves.
—  Imam Ali (as) [Nahj Al-Balagha p. 294]

The thing about imaan is, you have to work for it. It’s one thing to make du'a for Allah to increase your Imaan, and it’s another to put the effort in.

It’s like working out. If you’re going to wish to get fit and healthy but sit there and eat cake, you’re just going to get fat. But when you go to the gym, work out and eat healthy, you’re going to see results. It may take long, but in the long run, it’s worth it.

And Imaan is just like that. Make du'a but work to increase your Imaan and Allah will open your heart to love Him and be obedient towards Him. For He has mentioned in the Qur'an:

إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُواْ مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ

“Indeed Allah will not change the condition of a people, until they change what is in themselves.”

[13:11]

Don’t plant the seed and leave it, water it and make it grow.

May Allah heal the broken hearts. The ones who are silent, who cannot express their pain. The ones who are tired of torment. The ones who need a break. May Allah put an end to your sadness, may He put a smile on your face. Ameen
From amongst the signs of Laylatul-Qadar is that it is a calm night and the believer’s heart is delighted and at peace with it, and he becomes active in doing good actions, and the sun on the following morning rises clearly without any rays.
