seeking allah

“Whoever seeks the pleasure of Allah while the people are displeased; then Allah will protect him against the troubles caused by the people. And whoever seeks the pleasure of the people while displeasing Allah; then Allah will leave his matter for the people (i.e. Allah will not protect him from the harms of the people)”

- The Messenger of Allah

I cannot get over this hadith 😍

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) said, “Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: “Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?”

(Bukhari 1145)

If you are having a very difficult time overcoming sins (whatever it maybe), no matter how much you tried to refrain from it and you gave in each time despite trying your hardest to leave it for Allah but you failed every time. I will advise you with two things & you will find the most strongest and closest connection with Allah.

Firstly, when you commit the sin, seek Allah’s forgiveness as soon as possible. As soon as you realise you have sinned, seek His forgiveness there and then. Don’t give second thoughts about your intentions (stop thinking you will fall into it again) or doubt Allah’s mercy towards you. Just block out everything, breathe in and out until you are relaxed and spend 5 minutes speaking to Allah. Acknowledge your mistake, promise not to do it again, avoid that which brings you to the sin and ask for forgiveness.

After you have done this, don’t think about whether Allah has forgiven you or not. Allah wants to forgive you that’s why He guided you to seek His forgiveness in the first place.

Secondly & this point is very important if you cannot let go of the sin. If you keep falling into this sin, INCREASE YOUR GOOD DEEDS. You done one sin? Do 3 good deeds. You done it again? Increase another 3 good deeds. Don’t focus on the sin here, focus on doing good deeds, why? Because good deeds please Allah, it will bring you closer to Him & they erase bad deeds.

You feel low and filthy because you sinned? Increase your good deeds, let that guilt motivate you to rush you to good so Allah’s mercy and forgiveness reaches you. Allah’s forgiveness is far greater than your sins so let your book of good deeds be greater than your sins too.

Open the Quran & read, cook for your siblings, give them water. Smile at your parents, spend time with them. Help your friend with something, teach someone a Hadith. Give Salam to a stranger. Give charity to the needy.

So if you keep falling in sins, forget the sin. Focus on your good deeds. Sometimes it is in the depths of our sins we find Allah and know Him more than ever.

Shaytaan will do his best to stop you from doing good but do not listen to him, he’s your enemy. He does not want you to have hope in Allah. When you find him whispering to you, remind yourself that perhaps through my sins Allah will bring me close to Him. Perhaps because of my sins, I’m increasing on good deeds which I couldn’t have done otherwise.

Perhaps the effort of striving to please Allah, seek His forgiveness and increase in good deeds will make you a beloved friend of Allah. You are better than your sins, don’t you ever let them get you down. Your Lord is Forgiving, The Most Forgiving, The Pardoner, The Acceptor of repentance, The One who conceals faults. Our Lord is amazing, He loves you so much so love Him back. That’s His right over you, He never gives up on you so please never ever give up on Allah & His mercy.

The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, The religion (of Islam) is easy, and whoever makes the religion a rigour, it will overpower him. So, follow a middle course (in worship); if you can’t do this, do something near to it and give glad tidings and seek help (of Allah) at morn and at dusk and some part of night
—  Riyad as-Salihin, The Book of Miscellany, Book 1, Hadith 145
O Allah, I seek refuge with You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being over powered by men. AMEEN

In surah Al-Falaq, Allah the Almighty tells us to seek refuge with Allah from certain things including:

_“And from the evil of the envier when he envies”_.
وَمِن شَرِّ حاسِدٍ إذا حَسَد.

The Messenger صلى الله عليه وآله وصحبه وسلم said:
_‘the evil eye is real’_ (classed as authentic by al-albani)

A private life, is a safe life. Kill your ego!
Stop sharing your life with the world.

May Allah Almighty protect us all from the evil eye



● Work smart, not hard. Keep a schedule of exams so that you are able to prepare on time. Remember not everything will work for some people, so find what works for you and stick to it.

● Making notes- don’t write notes for the sake of it, be concise. Grow a habit of summarizing everything. Break down notes in to diagrams, flash cards, graphs or other pictorial representations. Summaries are great for remembering long notes/chapters.

● Teaching others- this is an excellent way of retaining what you learned. For example, you can get together in group and each person could teach one module to the rest of the group. Plus, you’ll be rewarded for helping your fellow brothers and sisters. (Remember too many people may become distracting, so try limit it to 1-2 people you know who are highly dedicated).

● Practice exam questions- This may be obvious but gets overlooked. Practice exam questions, then go to lecture notes to try and understand. This way you can filter out the non-essential stuff quicker and be more efficient with your time. Go through lecture notes, because lecturers might put similar if not the same questions they delivered in the lectures in the exams. Also, doing past papers/ exam questions helps familiarize you with the exam.

● Memorising- Look at you notes multiple times. Spider diagrams, mind maps and concept maps are great for visual learning. You can memorise it and then try re-create it.

● Breaks- Take regular breaks for revision, this helps the brain remember all the information that you’ve taken in. Try 50 minutes on, 10 minutes off.


● Start early and finish early. Wake up for Fajr and stay up till lunch. There is a lot of barakah as the Prophet (Sall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam) said: “O Allah, bless my nation in their early mornings (i.e., what they do early in the morning).” [Ibn Majah]. So utilise the early hours for revision. It is advised to work from the morning (whether after Fajr or at 9am) to 5pm, and to take the evening off for rest and enjoyment

● Try and take the Afternoon nap (Sunnah). Any nap shouldn’t prolong such that you enter deep sleep. For example, 20-45mins, you will feel refreshed and more productive Inshaa’Allah.

● Organisation- With any goals/targets one must be organised from the start. So have a plan/timetable/diary etc. that divides your time.

● Avoid futile activities- Minimise activities such as watching TV, Netflix, social media, gossip and bad company.

● Procrastination- Constantly remind yourself of the end goal and make lots of Du’a to Allah to protect you from Procrastination.


● Intention – As Muslims it is vital to have a noble intention behind our studies e.g. doctor – to save lives; an engineer – to build things that will benefit people etc. These will benefit us not only in the Dunya (world) but also in our Akhirah (Hereafter) insha Allah (If Allah wills).

● ‘Struggle now, enjoy later’ – put yourself in this mindset throughout i.e. in the short term you will work at Uni/library then relax at home; in the medium term you will work until exams and then relax in the summer; in the long term you will work until Uni finishes and do well in your chosen career.

● Company – Surround yourself with highly motivated and hardworking people. Being around aspirational people can help you in the right frame of mind and help prevent you from procrastinating

● Avoid regret – One of the worst things in life is regret, and something that happens to us a lot. Put yourself in the mindset that if you don’t work hard now, then you will regret it later.

● Fight procrastination – “Never do tomorrow, what you can do today, procrastination is the thief of time”. Something of an epidemic amongst students is to procrastinate, but fight the urge and make a start to get the ball rolling and remove the ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’ mentality.

● By yourself – Realise that you have to work hard for the simple fact that you are the one who will be sitting in that exam hall doing the exam, no one else will be writing for you, so prepare as much as you can.


● Plan around Salaah (Prayer) – It is very important to plan your revision around the five daily prayers and use these as breaks, they are an obligation upon us set by Allah, imagine seeking success in exams whilst not fulfilling the obligation that is a backbone to ultimate success.

● Qur’an – set aside some time (15 to 30 minutes) to recite and contemplate on the Qur’an, not only is this a break from revision but also, by the permission of Allah, puts barakah (blessings) in your time so efficiency will increase

● Make plenty of Du’a (supplication) - Without Allah’s aid you have nothing. You can have all the knowledge memorised but then you arrive at your exam and with a click of a finger it’s gone. Ask for His aid often.

● Morning and Evening Adhkaar (remembrance) – Fajr until sunrise (Morning Adhkaar), and Asr to Maghrib (Evening Adhkaar), try to keep up with remembering Allah in these times and read the Adhkaar which are Du’as that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) read. The Adhkaar can be found in the Fortress of the Muslim (a pocket sized book that many may have, can be bought cheap from Islamic book stores)

● Intention – As Muslims it is vital to have a noble intention behind our studies e.g. doctor – to save lives; an engineer – to build things that will benefit people etc. These will benefit us not only in the Dunya (world) but also in our Akhirah (Hereafter) insha Allah (If Allah wills).


● Diet - During long days of revision it becomes very tempting to just each junk. Heavy fatty food makes not just your body sluggish but your mind too. Have healthy lunches and also have good snacks such as nuts, fruits and plenty of water.

● Speeding up videos – When watching videos, lectures, seminars etc. on Q-Review, Moodle, YouTube and so on, it is helpful to increase the speed to 1.5x or 2x so you can save time as well as absorb information quicker

● Someone to monitor you – If you find it difficult to discipline yourself then you may want to get someone like a family member to ‘monitor’ you by controlling your reward and punishment. For example, your parents could hold your PlayStation controller, if you complete a good amount of revision or fail to, then they can allow you to play or prevent you, respectively.

● Distractions – Smart phones can be a major distraction so battle this by giving your phone to a family member or friend while you revise; or switch it off completely and leave it on the other side of the room; or download on app called ‘Forest’ which prevents you from going on your phone and if you do then your virtual tree begins to die, if you leave your phone untouched for the time limit set then you get points and may be able to get a real tree planted somewhere in the world; or some brothers have even gone to the extent of getting an old ‘brick’ phone as their primary phone, they say that productivity has improved hugely.
Also try to cut down on other distractions such as video games and TV shows, it may be tough to stop completely so limit it e.g. normally if you watch 4 episodes of a TV show a day, then reduce it to 1 episode a day.

May Allah grant all of us success in this life and more importantly, in the Hereafter, Ameen!


وَإِمَّا يَنزَغَنَّكَ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ نَزْغٌ فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah . Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ اتَّقَوْا إِذَا مَسَّهُمْ طَائِفٌ مِّنَ الشَّيْطَانِ تَذَكَّرُوا فَإِذَا هُم مُّبْصِرُونَ

Indeed, those who fear Allah - when a thought of evil from Satan assaults them, they remember [Him] And at Once they have insight.

[Surah Al-’a’raf Verse 200 & 201]

وَابْتَغِ فِيمَا آتَاكَ اللَّهُ الدَّارَ الْآخِرَةَ وَلَا تَنْسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا

“And seek, through that which Allah has given you, the home of the Hereafter; and yet, do not forget your share of the world.”

— Surah Al-Qasas 28, Ayah 77

Imam ibn al-Jawzi wrote the following encouraging words for the one who finds themselves awaiting the response to their du’a:

إذا وقعت في محنة يصعب الخلاص منها ، فليس لك إلّا الدعاء واللجأ إلى الله بعد أن تقدم التوبة من الذنوب.

If a trials afflicts you from which it is difficult to be free, then there is nothing else for you to do except to supplicate and seek refuge with Allah after having preceded this with tawbah for your sins.

فإن الزلل يوجب العقوبة فإذا زال الزلل بالتوبة من الذنوب ارتفع السبب .

For verily sins require punishment, so if the sins disappear due to tawbah from the sins, then the reason (for the punishment) has been lifted.

فإذ تبت ودعوت ولم تر للإجابة أثراً فتفقد أمرك ، فربما كانت التوبة ما صحت فصححها ثم أدع ولا تمل من الدعاء

Then if you have repented and supplicate but you do not see any trace of response, then investigate your affair, for perhaps the tawbah was not sound, so correct it and then supplicate, and do not tire of supplication.

 فربما كانت المصلحة في تأخير الإجابة ، وربما لم تكن المصلحة في الإجابة فأنت تثاب وتجاب إلى منافعك . ومن منافعك ألا تعطى ما طلب بل تعوّض غيره

And perhaps there is benefit in delaying the response, or perhaps there is not benefit in answering [the supplication] so you will be rewarded and responded to with what benefits you. And it would be beneficial for you to not be given what you sought, but rather to be compensated with something else.

فإذا جاء إبليس فقال : كم تدعوه ولا تر إجابة ؟ فقل : أنا أتعبد بالدعاء ، وأنا موقن أن الجواب حاصل

So if Iblees comes to you and says, “How long now have you supplicated for this and you have not seen a response?” Then say, “I devotedly worship through making du’a, and I am certain that the response is incumbent.”

غير أنه ربما كان تأخيره لبعض المصالح على مناسب ولو لم يحصل حصل التعبد والذل

Otherwise, perhaps its delay is due to some benefit, and even if it doesn’t occur, devoted worship and humility still take place.

فإياك تسأل شيئاً إلا وتقرنه بسؤال الخير

And beware of asking for something without joining it with asking for the khair.

فرب مطلوب في الدنيا كان حصوله سببا للهلاك

For perhaps attaining the thing sought in this dunya would be a cause of destruction.

وإذا كنت قد أمرت بالمشاورة في أمور الدنيا ليبين لك في بعض الآراء ما يعجز رأيك وتر أن ما وقع لك لا يصلح فكيف لا تسأل الخير ربك وهو أعلم بالمصالح ؟ والإستخارة من حسن الشماورة

And if you you have been commanded with consultation concerning the affairs of this dunya in order to clarify some of the different views which you were unable to see and that you would see that what occurred to you was not beneficial, then how is it that you do not ask your Lord for the khair while He is the most knowledgeable of the beneficial matters?! So al-istikhaarah is from the best forms of consultation.

Happy learning! May Allah make it easy for you, ameen! 🤗

We should strive to practice patience, mercy, and forgiveness whenever we are confronted with abuse. We should control our anger, pardon people, and supplicate for Allah to guide those who have gone astray.
May Allah (swt) provide each one of us with this beautiful quality called patience when it comes to dealing with people who have wronged us.


وَإِنْ عَاقَبْتُمْ فَعَاقِبُوا بِمِثْلِ مَا عُوقِبْتُم بِهِ وَلَئِن صَبَرْتُمْ لَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لِّلصَّابِرِينَ

And if you punish (your enemy, O you believers in the Oneness of Allah), then punish them with the like of that with which you were afflicted. But if you endure patiently, verily, it is better for As-Sabirin (the patient ones.)
-Surat An- Nahl (16:126)


مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ ظُلِمَ بِمَظْلَمَةٍ فَيُغْضِي عَنْهَا لِلَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلَّا أَعَزَّ اللَّهُ بِهَا نَصْرَهُ
