You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.

There can be no excuses as far as Salah is concerned. We have to pray all the five prayers and all of them on time.
“O you who believe! Fear Allah, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds).” [ al-Tawbah:119]
“Guard strictly the (five obligatory) prayers, especially the middle Salaat (˜Asr). And stand before Allaah with obedience.” [Surah al-Baqarah 2:238]
No matter where you are, what ever you do, Never Forget your Salah.
Oh excuses :(
This is much cooler than taking selfies during your trip!
So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny? -… SubhanAllah :’)
"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!!
Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.
Why should you worry about the future? You don’t even know the present properly. Take care of the present and the future will take care of itself.
I read because I know that I don’t know many things. Reading is part of learning. I love learning - it makes me alive. I read because my brain needs to be cultivated. I love finding something new from people’s research and experience(s). I read because I realize that world is so big. So even though I live in one place, I can feel that I travel miles away from other’s adventures and wish that I have my own someday.
Pray when it hurts. When you are so down on your luck and you want someone to turn to. Pray when you are happy. When you finally got all that you wanted and even more. Pray when you are lost and confused. When you have no idea what’s right or wrong. Pray to fill in the spaces, the gaps. Pray constantly and fervently in search of peace of mind and stability.
