Am I trying hard enough?

In my last post, I talked about the many realizations we come upon throughout our life, and I have recently made a reflection that made me want to forget and act like I never thought it, but had to force myself to swallow. How sincere am I? Is everything I do for the sake of…

The Scary Realizations

I’m scared. Reflection is a scary thing, because you realize things you don’t want to realize. How misguided your efforts were and still are. How astray you are. How much work you need. How many sins you committed and how many sins you still commit. It’s a scary feeling.¬†You get caught in this place of…

I Can’t Reflect Anymore

It has been exactly 2 years since I have written on this blog, but I know there was a reason I started it, and now that same reason is bringing me back. Intentions are the most important act in preparation as you head out to do something, and one of the main criterion that differentiate…

Share the goodness in your life

The best thing I’ve done on this account is posting¬†Beautiful recitations. In that blog post, I mentioned some recitations I really liked. It turned out to be one of my most successful posts, and I couldn’t be more happy. If you haven’t checked it out, check it out and take a listen to the Quran…

Beautiful recitations

My mom and dad never let a day pass where we don’t listen to Quran in the car. Some times it would be the beautiful voice of Sheik Sudais and sometimes it would be of Sheiks I never knew, but who had voices that were the best I ever heard. They didn’t read in the…

A tip to minimize anger (share the khayr)

I said I would do share the khayr in the beginning of my blog journey which means I would share one good thing each day. Obviously didn’t get around to that. I had a lot of ideas and things I wanted to share but I forgot many of them because I didn’t write them down….

Watch what you share

We all commit haram, and there is no way that we can have a clean slate as humans. We all have things we are struggling with. We know it’s haram but continue to do because we are so attached. That is your own battle, and those deeds are enough to have us beyond crying on…
