Exchanging gifts increases the love between us. However, a gift should only be from the depth of one's heart, to make someone happy for the Pleasure of the Almighty. Never give a gift expecting something in return as this can quickly become a bribe. Never brag about a gift given to someone as this nullifies the reward & does more harm than good. The best gifts are those given with humility, sincerity & respect whilst the worst gifts are those given with a dirty heart, in a way that makes others feel inferior & us superior. Never belittle a gift no matter how small it may seem as it is the thought that counts & the sincerity.

Two years ago, a viral fever took away my mother’s partial hearing ability. It was a great shock for our family and for her. I mean, come to think of it…she could hear for almost half of her life and one day suddenly, she cannot. Sometimes, I shut both my ears very hard and feel that silence. It scares me…gives me the creeps. Then I look at her and feel miserable. I know why she doesn’t go out much these days…but it kills me inside to see her sit away while all her friends are talking and laughing away at weddings and I control my tears. But she always tells me Alhamdulillah, I can still hear partially. And I say…Alhamdulillah; I still have her with me.
Last week my father was admitted in the hospital and lay in the ICU for two days. His blood pressure suddenly rose to his brain. According to his doctor, if we were to reach the hospital 10 minutes later he would have either died on spot or be paralyzed. Those two days outside the ICU on that bench and one week in the hospital with him, I started thinking of how life would be without him. Alhamdulillah, he is back home now fit and fine.
Sometimes we need a ‘wake up call’ to realize the importance of our parents whom we otherwise take advantage of unknowingly. Prophet Muhammad sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam pointed out among the minor signs of Qiyamah that – “Obedience to spouse and disobedience to parents would be the order of the times. Spouses would pusillanimously (most timidly) submit to the un-islamic whims and dictates of each other. Whilst mothers would be disobeyed and fathers treated like strangers, preference would be given to friends who would be entertained with warm receptions and generous hospitality.”
Crying or moaning after they are no more amidst us is useless. We often forget the huge sacrifices they have made for us and complain about the little compromises we have to do. We forget that they have listened to our babbles endlessly and patiently…but do we find time to sit with them and talk socially? What happens very commonly in our society is that at a certain age girls get married and get settled at her in-law’s and guys get married and fly abroad with their wives. What about the parents? Where is their stand? Sending them cash or buying them things alone does NOT complete our responsibility towards them. It’s not just flora and fauna that are getting endangered these days….it’s us humans too…the real living ones…We have to find time to be with them, to listen to them, to cook for them, to take them outside, to talk with them, to hug them, to kiss them and to tell them everyday how much we love them….we have to…otherwise we will end up someday crying in some corner thinking “I should have…” There is today, there is them…and there is chance…don’t let it go waste…
Here are Some hadiths from Sahih Bukhari which reflects on our duties towards our parents.
Ibn 'Abbas said, "If any Muslim obeys Allah regarding his parents, Allah will open two gates of the Garden for him. If there is only one parent, then one gate will be opened. If one of them is angry, then Allah will not be pleased with him until that parent is pleased with him." He was asked, "Even if they wrong him?" "Even if they wrong him" he replied.
Sa'id ibn Abi Burda said, "I heard my father said that Ibn 'Umar saw a Yamani man going around the House while carrying his mother on his back, saying, 'I am your humble camel. If her mount is frightened, I am not frightened.' Then he asked, 'Ibn 'Umar? Do you think that I have repaid her?' He replied, 'No, not even for a single groan.'
"Allah curses whoever curses his parents" and “Allah prolongs the life of someone who is dutiful towards his parents”
'Abdullah ibn 'Amr said, "A man came to the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, wanting to do jihad. The Prophet asked, 'Are your parents alive?' 'Yes,' he replied. He said, ' Then exert yourself on their behalf.'"
Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Disgrace! Disgrace! Disgrace!" They said, "Messenger of Allah, who?" He said, "The one who fails his parents or one of them when they are old will enter the Fire."
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala grant us the hidaayat to be the kind of children who lives in this world being dutiful to our parents without being disobedient to Allah and in the Aakhira, enters the Jannatul Firdaus. Aameen. And never forget to pray for them everyday after our obligatory prayers. “Rabbir-hamhuma kama rabbayani sagheerah.” (My lord, have mercy upon my parents; the way they had mercy upon me when I was young).
A boy and his father were walking in the mountains. Suddenly, the boy fell, hurt himself, and screamed “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
To his surprise, he heard the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain, “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!” Curious, he yelled: “Who are you?” He received the answer: “Who are you?”
Angered at the response, he screamed: “Coward!” He receives the answer: “Coward!”
He looked to his father and asked:
“What’s going on?” The father smiled and said: “My son, pay attention.”
And then he screamed to the mountain:
“I admire you!” The voice answered:
“I admire you!” Again the man screamed: “You are a champion!”
The voice answered: “You are a champion!”
The boy was surprised, but did not understand.
Then the father explained:
“People call this “ECHO”,but really this is LIFE. It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”
LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE......IT’S A REFLECTION OF YOU!.
In the Quraan Allah tells us "All good comes from Allah all evils comes from your own selves"
All evil comes from our past sins that we have committed.
And there is a common saying in the West: 'What goes around comes around'
Yet humanity still commits evil and we only reap what we sow.
Survivors are they who, despite the cuts and tears, remain standing. Survivors are they, who gnaw through the words, sticks and stones. Survivors are they who are strengthened by thier experiences, causing them to stand firmer on the path.. Survivors are they, who allow thier memories to close to an end, as their wounds close up.. Survivors are they, who do not allow themselves to be tampered with the victim label..
From every wound there is a scar, and every scar tells a story. A story that says, I survived. Alhamdhulillah ♥
"I know myself better than others, and my Lord knows me better than I know myself. O' ALLAH do not deal with me according to what they say, make me better than they think of me and forgive me (of those shortcomings) which they know not."
Ameen, thumma ameen!
Challenges lie ahead of each of us, and hurdles lie in every path. They are not the enemy. The enemy lies within us whispering to us that we are alone. ~
Cut off fake people for real reasons, not real people for fake reasons.~
The Difference between FOCUSING on PROBLEMS and FOCUSING on SOLUTIONS
Case # 1 : When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the pens would not work at zero gravity (ink will not flow down to the writing surface).
Solution # 1 : To solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, in practically any surface including crystal and in a temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.
Solution # 2 : And what did the Russians do...?? They used a pencil.
Case # 2 : One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the case of the empty soapbox, which happened in one of Japan 's biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soapbox that was empty.
Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly Line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason, one soapbox went through the assembly line empty.
Management asked its engineers to solve the problem.
Solution # 1 : Post-haste, the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soapboxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent a whoopee amount to do so.
Solution # 2 : But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem, he did not get into complications of X-rays, etc., but instead came out with another solution.
He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soapbox passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.
• Always look for simple solutions.
• Devise the simplest possible solution that solves the problems.
• Always focus on solutions & not on problems.
This life is too short to make and accelerate relations,
I don’t know why ppl break the developed relations
This life is too short to say something to loved ones,
I don’t know why ppl keep silent 4 a long time
This life is too short to make real friends,
I don’t know why ppl break friendship
Think before its too late, today is time, nobody knows abt next moment, bcoz life cant wait and death ever waits…~
What you do for yourself, dies with you.
But what you do for others will live for ever.
"Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands,
but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is."
Be strong like a rock, which is not only able to continue in the actions of waves in the ocean, but also able to pacify the turbulent fury of the waves.
Do everything with so much love in your heart
that you would never want to do it any other way.~
Sometimes in life we need to cry, to express what can not we say. Tears are the words from the heart, tears can not speak but save thousands of meaning. -

don't let your past choices or mistakes define who you are today.
The Qur'an breaks hard hearts and heals broken hearts" ♥.
♦♦♦♦ The successful marriage is not when you can live in peace with your wife, but when you can't live in peace without her ♦♦♦♦
•*❤*Real men stay faithful, they don't have time to look for other women because they're too busy looking for new ways to love their own •*❤
Prophet (pbuh) said "There is no sin more deserving of having punishment meted out by Allah to its perpetrator in advance in this world along with what He stores up for him in the next world than oppression and severing ties of family." [Tirmidhi] Lesson to be learnt always try your best to mend broken ties with family members, don't be the one who breaks them.
It's strange isn't it? That funerals always make us think about death. But when they're over we quickly resort back to our normal lives. So the question today is... If someone told you right now the exact time you would die and meet Allah what would you do? Probably start praying 24/7? So why, when we already know we are destined to die we never think about death. We're basically taking our chances, hoping death will be far far away, but perhaps we should start preparing for it each day. Starting from today...
If there is heavy mist on the windscreens of our cars, then we de-mist those windscreens when driving. If we do not do so, then we are liable to meet with an accident. In a like manner, when our hearts become misted with sins, with evil desires and passions, it becomes necessary to de-mist our hearts with Taubah and Istighfaar (repentance).
According to a Hadith of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) , everything rusts according to its nature, and the hearts rust with worldly desires and sins. Zikr (Praise of ALLAHh Ta'ala)ullah removes the rust of the (spiritual) heart - it purifies and cleanses the heart.
Don't start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday.
A wise mans' response to "What is a Woman?"
“She's like glass, transparent so u can see inside. The more u wipe it gently, the more it shines & u can see ur reflection on it, like she is preserving ur image inside of her shyly. If u break it, it will be so hard for u to collect its shattered pieces again. If u do collect them to stick tog., it won’t be back to da way it was. It will always be disfigured. Every time you pass ur hand on the fracture zones "scars" u will hurt ur hand."
To accept you did wrong makes it easier to live.... denial always makes it harder..and harder...and harder.
Do not take any good woman for granted. Someone will come along and appreciate what you did not. Then only you will realize what you have lost.
Only ALLAH can turn a MESS into a MESSage, a TEST into a TESTimony, a TRIal into a TRIumph, a VICTim into a VICTory.
Life becomes precious and more special to us when we look for the little everyday miracles and get excited about the privileges of simply being human.

Please don't judge what u don't understand.
"Try walking in my shoes for a mile, see if you get any blisters from it. Even if you do, you have to keep walking with pain but you will survive at the end of the road"
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. ~Roald Dahl

Beware of Hurting Someone Who Really Cares For
You because Its As Easy As Throwing a Stone In The deep SEA ...BUT .do..You Know How Deep That Stone Goes ?And how hard it would be to find that stone in the sea again.Sorry doesnt always bring a dead man alive.
A hopeless person feels difficulty in every chance, but A hopeful person feels a chance in every difficulty
"If someone corrects you, and you feel offended, then You have an EGO problem."
I know you are there ALLAH. I know you see my tears. I know you hear my prayers. I know you are testing me. And all I ask from you is to strengthen my Iman so I can handle the struggles in life and have patience. Please keep me safe.
We all make mistakes that can never be undone. But Allah doesnt stop forgiving, so dont ever stop repenting.
Once You Feel You Are Avoided By Someone,Never Disturb Them again..!
Because The One Who Thinks You Are Disturbing Them Will never Know
How much you Care for Them...
Shaytaan never refused to believe in ALLAH,,,,,,he refused to make one Sujood.
How many we miss Sujood one a day?
When we are not kind & loving towards our spouses & children, ignoring them, making them struggle to draw our attention, showing no appreciation for their effort, keep picking on their errors, spending no time with them, giving preference to our friends or the net, phone etc, then we are guilty of pushing them to seek that elsewhere! Hence we will also bear the sin of their wrongdoings at work, school, clubs etc. It will be too late to cry then whilst we ignored them when they cried out for us!
Whenever you achieve something in ur life, Never forget those people who prayed for you & loved you....♥
