Keep moving forward ~

Some advice I gave to a friend that I thought would be nice to share with all of you…

“You’re holding on to the past and letting it control you. The past, both good and bad, is in the past, so leave it there. There’s nothing you can do to change it. If what you left there is meant to be yours, it will return to you. But waiting for that unknown is useless and will only cause you pain. Look at what you have today. It’s true what they say: “The present is a gift.” Be grateful for the pain because it will make you stronger. Be ambitious towards growth and making change towards something better. And recognize that you are surround by blessings, and you must embrace the blessings and new opportunities and adventures in order to truly live and keep moving forward. Allah has not created you to stand still. He has created you to keep looking and moving forward. I know this is easier said than done, but it is not impossible. So, continue to be strong in faith and mind, and go after a better future, not after a bruised and fading past.”

Question : Salam. I never thought I’d ever go through a heart break. I always thought it wasn’t for me but secretly I’ve liked this brother for a loong time now. I found out that he likes someone else and wants to marry her, who’s my best friend. I’m so shy to tell anyone, thinking they would simply tell me to just get over it. But it hurts :/and my self esteem just took a huge blow. I really went ahead of myself nd let those feelings take over. I didn’t think it’d be like this. I just want to cry 😦 Help

answer :  Waalaykom Assalaam.

I was discussing something similar to this recently with my mentor/one of the kindest and most awesome people I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. 

And so he told me a story. He had been engaged and in love to the woman of his dreams for two years; they were talking about getting married and having children. One day, she broke up with him. He didn’t tell me why, but the expression on his face as he was recalling the event was enough to make me understand how devastated he was. He then looked at me and said, “I never thought I would get over it. I wondered why God would do something like this to me. But Subhan Allah, six months later, the best thing that could have ever happened, happened.”

His wife then joined us and told me how they met—how they had been at an event and someone asked her what she thought of him—how she had said he was unattractive and weird—how then she decided to give him a chance—and then how they got married two months later in a mosque with a couple dozen people, because, despite being well-off, they wanted to start their journey together with modesty.

He told me that sometimes, despite how much you want certain things to happen, they won’t happen. They just won’t. And right when you think that all hope is gone, God will send you a sign and assure you that everything will be okay. Masha Allah. He’s been happily married for over 12 years and with four of the craziest and most adorable kids.

Few things hurt as much as loving someone who loves someone else. You can almost feel it tear away at you. But you have to get up, and you have to keep going. You have to have faith in the only One who is All-Knowing and Wise. Because God is the best of planners, and Insha Allah He will send you the best person for you when the time is right.  

Please, don’t look at it as if there is something wrong with you. A relationship is based off of two people and how well they work together. This may mean that you would not have worked well as a unit, despite both of you being magnificent people. He didn’t have feelings for your friend because youweren’t good enough, he had them because he thought she would be better with him. 

It’s okay to cry and have a date night with every girl’s best friends, Ben and Jerry. No one said life was easy, and no one said you would just be able to “get over” a heartbreak. However, try not to resent your friend; she deserves to be happy too. Just take it one day at a time. And Insha Allah, in due time, you’ll find someone just for you 🙂

now you mention it, well what a great answer i got from thegreaterjihad but wait wait…

 i mean it’s not me who asked a question i just copy it here because i like the answer hehe :3

Religions ~

There is A question From Someone

I’m not a Muslim, but I love reading your posts and about your beliefs. It saddens me to see how much the western mindset tends to misunderstand Islam. Anyways, my question is what do you think the relationship is between the main monotheistic religions: Islam, Christianity, and Judaism? I strongly believe that these religions are not at odds with each other, but that they exist harmoniously, and that God, for reasons we may not understand, created these multiple paths to him. Thank you.

Hi there and thanks for your comment and question! 

Your assumption is in many ways correct, for Muslims there is a strong relationship between these three Abrahamic faiths, but mainly because Islam is not a new religion and it does not preach a new message-rather it is the message that the central figures of these religions came with before-and it has come to guide people to the path of truth. 

The fundamental principle of Islam is to believe in One God and to worship Him alone with no partners-which is the message that Moses (peace be upon him) and  Jesus (peace be upon him) came with as well as Muhammad (peace be upon him), who we believe to be the last Prophet. Thus we believe that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the seal of all Prophets-so he came with the last revelation over 1400 years ago, but again, his message was no different than the original message of the Prophets who came before him. 

We believe that both Moses and Jesus came with scriptures, but these scriptures were changed by man, and this is visible in the modern day bible, which Christians know is not the literal word of God, but rather a mixture of over 60 books including historical accounts and memoirs, including many that were written over 300 years after the Prophethood of Jesus (peace be upon him). 

So essentially, we believe Jesus was not the son of God, nor did he preach this message (and in fact historical accounts state that the concept of trinity was actually established after the coming of Jesus in the Council of Nicea, 325AD) but a beloved Prophet of God (peace be upon him), as was Moses, Adam, Joshua, Muhammad and many others sent to different peoples (peace be upon them all). 

As Muslims we also have had a particular relationship with Christians and Jews throughout history, and it is clear through Islamic teachings that Muslims are told to respect them and treat them with kindness and with good conduct-so I do not see why we should be at odds with each other as such, especially in the modern day and age. Unfortunately, as you mentioned, Islam has been widely misunderstood, and as has been done throughout history for various groups of people-Islam is too being pinned as strange, dangerous and ‘different’. But it is upon people to logically think and accept that it is completely absurd to conclude that over 1 billion of the world’s population is what the Media says they are. Islam always has and will be a religion of ultimate truth, justice and peace as this is what is conveyed in the Qur’an and in the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). 

Hope this answered your question sufficiently and have a nice day! 😀

This be the answer

A prisoner on his knees

scrubs around a toilet bowl

and the bristles of the brush

scuttles to and fro

as a guard swaggers over

to yell rather than ask-

Where is your God now?

And the prisoner still on his knees

his brush still cleaning answers:

He is with me now, gov.

My God is with me now

hearing and seeing,

whilst your superiors

when they see you, do not look at you

and when they hear you, do not listen to you

My God is risen above the heavens

and closer to me than my jugular vein,

whilst your superiors no different to you

allow you no further than the desk

My God wants me to call Him

whilst your superiors demand you knock

And when I go towards Him a hand span,

He comes to me a yard

and when I go to Him walking,

He comes to me running

Ignorance is cured by knowledge

and the key to knowledge is to ask.

Less now the exclamation

and more the question mark,

the guard sulks away,

and a prisoner on his knees,

still, as if in prayer.

if they ask about islam, explain this

maybe there is someone out there or maybe your friend who not muslim but want to know about islam we can explain this, we can tell them how beautiful islam

anonymous asked a question : I am a Christian I have read about Jesus in the Al-quran …

Please tell me more about Islam

Bismillah, insyaAllah this is must be the answer :

Hi there,

Islam is a religion, in which Muslims believe that there is no deity worthy of being worshipped except God, and that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is God’s servant and messenger.

By reading about Islam in the Qur’an, I’m sure you know that the Qur’an is what we believe to be the word of God, and we also believe that God sent messengers to mankind to guide/keep them upon the straight path- and that is again to believe in One God, to worship Him and not to associate anything with Him. Thus, the previous prophets are mentioned in the Qur’an, such as Abraham, Moses, Jesus (peace be upon them all). They were all noble Prophets of God, and Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the seal of all Prophets-the last Prophet and all the Prophets came with the same message. However, the difference is that each previous Prophet was sent by God to a particular peoples, for example Jesus (peace be upon him) was sent to the Jews, and in fact most Christians believe that Jesus preached for 3 to 3 and a half years, thus his message was directed specifically to those people. But Muhammad (peace be upon him) came with a message for the whole of humanity, thus the Qur’an is relevant to us today.

Furthermore, previous scriptures such as the Injil (the Gospel given to Jesus (pbuh), the Torah, the Zabur (the Psalms given to David (pbuh)) have all been tampered with by man. As Muslims we must believe that these were originally the word of God, but even today with revised editions of the Bible being published annually, we know for a fact that the Bible is no longer the original word of God. Historians also inform us that the practice of Christianity in itself (as well as the initial message of Jesus pbuh) has been changed, one example of this being the council of Nicea (325 AD) where it was established that the Holy Trinity was a fundamental Christian concept, which Christians did not used to practice before this.

God sent the last revelation, and the Qur’an is a miracle in itself. It cannot be tampered with, the language is so complex that no-one has been able to duplicate it, and God even challenges anyone who questions it to ‘bring a verse like it’ (Qur’an, Chapter 2: Verse 23).

At the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him), approximately 1433 years ago, revelation from God was much needed. The Arab society was corrupt and unjust, with women being buried alive in infancy and seen as lowly in society, with the Arabs being split up into tribes, some of whom were constantly at war. There were many other problems, too many to mention, thus when the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) received revelation from God through the Angel Gabriel, he came with a solution for society, and a solution for humanity as a whole. This is an essential point for when we look at religion, it should be personal to us and to make us better people, but also effective and beneficial for society as a whole, and Islam offers this.

This is obviously a very brief explanation, and it would be much more beneficial if you could come off anon and we could discuss this further. I hope this helped shed some light onto our beautiful religion.

It’s just between you and god

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self centered. Forgive them anyway. 

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. 

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. 

If you are honest and sincere, people my deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. 

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. 

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealeous. Be happy anyway. 

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. 

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give you best anyway. 


In final analysis, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway.
