We cry over friends we will never have back,

People we once loved,

Bridges that have been burnt,

But there’s a reason the past is in the past,

You only have so much room in your life;

Save it.. for people that deserve it,

Chances are,

If someone’s in the past,

They deserve to stay there.


Istikhara is a means of seeking guidance from Allah when faced with making a decision that one may be unsure about. “Should I, or shouldn’t I.. Will I regret making this decision?”. Who better to ask than Allah? You will definitely know that you have made the right decision when the direction has come from Allah Almighty as a result of your supplications.

The description of Salaat al-Istikhaarah was reported by Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah al-Salami (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said:

“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to teach his companions to make istikhaarah in all things, just as he used to teach them soorahs from the Qur’aan.

 He said: ‘If any one of you is concerned about a decision he has to make, then let him pray two rak’ahs of non-obligatory prayer, then say:

 Allaahumma inni astakheeruka bi ‘ilmika wa astaqdiruka bi qudratika wa as’aluka min fadlika, fa innaka taqdiru wa laa aqdir, wa ta’lamu wa laa a’lam, wa anta ‘allaam al-ghuyoob. Allaahumma fa in kunta ta’lamu haadha’l-amra (then the matter should be mentioned by name) khayran li fi ‘aajil amri wa aajilihi (or: fi deeni wa ma’aashi wa ‘aaqibati amri) faqdurhu li wa yassirhu li thumma baarik li fihi. Allaahumma wa in kunta ta’lamu annahu sharrun li fi deeni wa ma’aashi wa ‘aaqibati amri (or: fi ‘aajili amri wa aajilihi) fasrifni ‘anhu [wasrafhu ‘anni] waqdur li al-khayr haythu kaana thumma radini bihi

(O Allaah, I seek Your guidance [in making a choice] by virtue of Your knowledge, and I seek ability by virtue of Your power, and I ask You of Your great bounty. You have power, I have none. And You know, I know not. You are the Knower of hidden things. O Allaah, if in Your knowledge, this matter (then it should be mentioned by name) is good for me both in this world and in the Hereafter (or: in my religion, my livelihood and my affairs), then ordain it for me, make it easy for me, and bless it for me. And if in Your knowledge it is bad for me and for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs (or: for me both in this world and the next), then turn me away from it, [and turn it away from me], and ordain for me the good wherever it may be and make me pleased with it.”

(Reported by al-Bukhaari, 6841; similar reports are also recorded by al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa’i, Abu Dawood, Ibn Maajah and Ahmad).

We look around the world for a solution to our problems, forgetting that it’s right infront of us. Just make duaa, call on Allah by His beautiful names. Ya Allah, Al Fattah, open doors of goodness for every single reader, open doors of happiness & opportunity in our lives, grant us the ability to accomplish our dreams and goals and get through the dark stages of our lives without losing faith. Ameen.

“No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of worrying can change the future. Go easy on yourself for the outcome of all affairs is determined by Allah’s Decree. If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come on your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee.” (Umar ibn al-Khattab r.a)

Absolutely LOVE these quotes!!

We look around the world for a solution to our problems, forgetting that it’s right infront of us. Just make duaa, call on Allah by His beautiful names. Ya Allah, Al Jabbar, heal our broken hearts. Heal our broken families. Heal our broken souls. Heal our broken communities. Mend our wounds, replace our hardship and pain with happiness and ease. Fix that which is impossible to fix with our own hands.. we can only rely on You to give us stability and peace. Ameen

When the pain of your heart can’t take it any longer, when your patience has been tread on till it’s very last thread, when your emotionally exhausted from trying to hold it all together.. please remember that this is not permanent. As exhausting as it feels, as tiring as it seems to carry on, hold on to that last bit of hope. Do not let go. Just as we watch situations go from bad to worse to catastrophe.. things will soften and get better to beautiful to the best they’ve even been. By the will of Allah.. he didn’t design problems to affect us permanently. Just like He didn’t create picture perfect lives. Everything has a turn, and each experience has an important piece in your puzzle. If it doesn’t make sense yet it means your story is still going. So continue to hold on.. Allah does not disappoint those who rely on Him. He only tests our patience, sometimes long enough our faith begins to shake. It’s normal, you are human, but more importantly - you are Muslim. I pray your heart smiles and that you feel happy again. ❤️

Don’t despair when things don’t go according to the way you planned them to.

When the bridges of friendship burn, when marriages are torn apart, when the parent is separated from their child, when our loved ones leave, when life’s circumstances change, when what we planned fails.. it feels impossible not to break down.

It is our human right to grieve, but feel relief and contentment with the Qadr of Allah. It is by Allah’s will whatever you had has come to an end. Everything has a prescribed time. It was written to cross our path, and it was written to pass us by. Alhamdulilah.
