Obsessing over things that didn't go according to our plan doesn't change the past. The place where you are at the moment might not be your initial plan. You can never have control over everything. That's life in a nutshell. Regretting things in the past will never let you win race of life. Learn to make peace with yourself. Nobody can come in the way of something that's meant for you...
Can you spot the Burj Khalifa in this photo? -
On the record, this was the crappiest year of my life so I decided to make it better and visited Dubai to celebrate my birthday. Have you done anything crazy to make your year better? -
It instantly became one of my favourite cities not just because of it’s beauty but also because of the diversity of the people, cultures and places it offers. I ❤️ Dubai (quite literally).
Struggling in your emaan? Do you feel dead inside when you pray, make du’aa, or read Qur’an?
Remember this: It’s okay to show up empty. Just be sure to show up.
And your Lord will fill your heart with the spiritual fuel it needs, eventually.
But you have to show up.
Show up to prayer.
Show up to du’aa.
Show up to Qur’an.
Just the act of showing up is a powerful act of faith.
Allah will take care of the rest. .
