One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart

Make yourself a silent promise to make today a better day

Leave back all your worries and troubles of yesterday,

Make yourself a silent promise to make today a better day. 

Now, a brand new day lays ahead of you,

Face it with confidence, because it is a gift and is totally new. 

May all your goals and ambitions for the day be set.

Sadness departs with a prostration (sajdah)

“Sadness departs with a prostration (sajdah). Happiness comes with a sincere supplication (du’ā). Allāh does not forget the good you do, nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh. Live your life with this principle: be good even if you do not receive good; not because of other’s sake but because Allāh loves the good-doers.”

A Conversation Between a Mother and her Son

Mother:


I fought with death when I was giving birth to you. I spent sleepless nights when you were sick and crying. I never ate without feeding you first. I bore so many pains to bring you to the stage that you are in today. How will you repay me my child?


Son:


When I grow up, I will find a good job and earn lots of money for you so you can enjoy the pleasures of this world.


Mother:


Your father is doing this already and I do not expect this from you too. By the time you are earning I will be old and will not be in need of any worldly luxuries.


Son:


I will find a pious lady and marry her so she can cook for you and take care of you.


Mother:


That is not her duty my son and neither should you marry for that reason. It is not compulsory on her to do any service to me, neither do I expect this from her. Your marriage should be for you, a companion and a comfort for you as you go through this journey of life.


Child:


Tell me mother how can I repay you then?


Mother:


(With tears in her eyes) Visit or call me often. A mother only requires this much from you while she is alive.


Then when I die give me your shoulder and bury me.


Whenever you perform prayers, supplicate for me.


Give out in charity for me.


Remember your every good deed will benefit me in the hereafter so be good and kind always.


Fulfill the rights of all those around you.


The sleepless nights and pains I took to bring you up was not a favour to you but was for my Creator. He blessed me with you as a beautiful gift and as a means for me to attain His pleasure. Your every good deed becomes my repayment.


Will you do it my child?


Son: (Cannot speak and had tears in his eyes)
