A message to our brothers and sisters around the world suffering. Do not worry, you have Allah. When you have Allah, who can defeat you? Victory is near.
just what I needed to hear today.
"This worldly life is nothing but a material of delusion." Qur’an 57:20
It’s better to invest in our Akhira than to put ourselves into destruction (by displeasing Allah).
Giving up things that will not benefit us in the Akhira (& affect our Imān in a negative way) as soon as possible is way better than waiting for the “moment when we are ready” (to give it up for the pleasure of Allah subhānahu wa taala). You never know if you’ll last the next day/week/month/year. Nobody knows if you’ll be given another tomorrow to seek forgiveness, repent, and mend your ways; so do it now.. Today is the perfect time to change, to please our Creator.
If you are someone who grew up loving music, it will not be easy to (immediately) stop listening to it completely and that’s normal. But, really, when your eyes are set on the goal (Jannah/Paradise & pleasing Allah), the struggle will not matter to you anymore & Allah will assist you in this course of action. It might take you days, or weeks, or few months, but In Shaa Allah you will see the result sooner than you expect it. Just don’t lose hope. Remember that Allah is ever Merciful. Read more of the Qur’an. Try and understand its message. In Shaa Allah, doing this regularly will definitely help you achieve your goal. Strive hard in strengthening your Imān and everything else will follow. Why? Because when your heart only yearns for Jannah & pleasing Allah, it will be so much easier to give up things that displeases Allah. When your heart beats for Allah, the Dunya & all its amusements will not hold you back anymore from gaining the pleasure of our Creator.
May Allah assist us in all our affairs and purify our intentions. Ameen..
