Forgiving those who hurt you

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

Just now, I was thinking about someone who had hurt me at work with the way that they spoke and the way that they were with me.

But Allah SWT inspired a beautiful thought in my mind: to forgive them and let Allah SWT deal with these affairs wholly.

The act of genuinely forgiving everyone who has ever hurt you in your life can be hard. Especially if they are deep wounds that still affect you today. However, even though I am finding it a little hard to fully and completely forgive everyone who has hurt me, what keeps me going in the right direction is remembering that Allah SWT is the All Knowing, Most Powerful and The Just so I know whatever anyone had ever done to me, they will be dealt with accordingly. This stops me from trying to make justice with my own hands.

You may think why I am looking at the name of Allah SWT “The Just” even though I said I forgive them. This is because I want justice as anyone would. Even though people may not say it, within them they will always want justice.

Forgiving and letting go will, insha’Allah, bring about a lot of relief and ease for you, helping you to fulfill your amazing potential, without having the past drag you down, leaving you depressed, unhappy and ungrateful.

I hope this helps you and if it does, please share it so that it may help someone else insha’Allah.

I’m full, Alhumdulillah!

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

Contentment in Allah(SWT)’s Plan for you is a truly beautiful feeling which allows you to fully and completely put your trust in Allah(SWT) only, thus saving you from being stressed at every little thing that comes in your life.

When you know that everything is already decreed by Allah(SWT) and you also know that Allah(SWT) only wants the best for you, you are truly able to let yourself fall into Allah(SWT)’s “Hands”. Upon doing so, you will notice that you feel light and free, like the flowing wind as your heart has gained freedom from the Dunya!

Alhumdulillah!

With this contentment comes gratitude, as you begin to be very grateful for the HUMONGOUS amount of blessings in your life.

Just take a moment and think.

Think hard about the many things that you have in your life which many people don’t.

I guarantee that when you do sit and truly realise the many small but important blessings in your life, you will become even more content, humble and grateful, insha’Allah.

May Allah(SWT) make us truly grateful and humble before Him(SWT). Insha’Allah ameen.

JazakAllahu khairan.

I hate Muslims!

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

I came across this blog/website directed completely and fully towards the hatred of Muslims. It is called BareNakedIslam, which has a strapline of “It isn’t Islamophobia, when they really ARE trying to kill you.”

It made me think about whether the majority or the minority, from America and the West in general, hated all of us. Not just a few of us but ALL of us.

If even the leader and founder of the EDL openly says that he doesn’t hate ALL Muslims but just those who carry out these bombings, then maybe it isn’t the majority, right? (None have been done by any Muslims. They have been done by the Government. But that’s another discussion altogether!)

In America, it seems to be a completely different story where many people express their negative views towards us “Muzzies” and “Mohammedans” plainly and freely without a care about what they are saying.

It saddens me to think that such a peaceful religion and way of life could be misconstrued so badly to the point where people HATE all Muslims and they feel it is completely okay to utter or write such horrible and evil things, that you wouldn’t even think to say to your worst enemy.

So I think one of the best ways to gain a better picture of people’s reactions to Muslims and Islam is to find out!

I want to put a question to you:

What does Islam and Muslims mean to you?

Please comment back! I really would love to know!

JazakAllahu khairan.
