There will be a distinct few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something – something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and seems completely crazy to others.  When this happens, sit quietly and listen to your intuition.  Let your instincts take over and ignore everything else.  Ignore what you’re “supposed” to do, ignore the odds, ignore what everyone else wants you to do, and just go for it.

In life, if you don’t risk anything, you risk everything.  And you can’t always wait for the perfect time.  Sometimes you must dare to jump.  Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage – just literally twenty seconds of uncomfortable bravery – and I promise you, something great will come of it.



Hard times are often blessings in disguise.  Let go and let life strengthen you.  No matter how much it hurts, hold your head up and keep going.  This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a rough day, a bad month, or a crappy year.  Things will unquestionably change – you will not feel this way forever.

Truth be told, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your spirit needs most.  Your past was never a mistake if you learned from it.  So take all the crazy experiences and lessons and place them in a box labeled “Thank You.”  You simply can’t feel real happy unless you’ve felt heartache.  You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail.  You can’t know what it’s like to feel whole until you know what it’s like to feel completely shattered.  And you can’t be re-birthed until you’ve passed on from who you used to be.

Do not seek sus…

Do not seek sustenance from people. God is the real Provider. If He wills a certain person to be the means of your livelihood, do not consider that person to be in control of your destiny. Have faith and be certain in the knowledge that your daily bread does not depend upon any mortal, but upon God who created all. ~Nahila Partee

Jewels of Alfaydah

1. The Prophet said that God has said,
“I cannot be contained in hallowed places.
Heaven and earth cannot hold Me.
But I am contained by true hearts.
If you seek Me, search in those hearts.”

2. To know your own illness is the proper remedy.
When you repent you feel humility.
That is the time to obey the Prophet’s command
“Have mercy.” Why do you presume to be safe
and fortunate. Don’t you remember God’s salace,
“Do not fear”?

3. The Prophet said to Ali, “You may be the Lion of
God, but depend not on valor alone. Learn to
blossom under the shade of hope. Rejoice in the
Sage who cannot be beguiled from the way.

4. I am the orchard; You the rain.
Only I need You twenty times more.
Rejoicing in You a beggar receives victuals
without any means or resistance.
We are the fishes; You the ocean of life.
We live by Your favor, O Exalted of All.

5. His miracles are countless,
the waves of His bounty tide upon tide.
These and a hundred times as many miracles
allow the light of His face
to shine inside and out.

6. When your heart is dark as iron, steadily polish yourself
that the heart may become a mirror, a beautiful shine reflecting from within.
Although iron is dark and dismal,  polishing clears the darkness away.

Obtain Peace In Your Life

Sometimes our lives are chaotic. No matter where you turn, there is a new problem to encounter; so how exactly can you rest? Let alone fine some kind of peace. As strange as it may sound, it all starts with you.



Realize that life never turns out the way you want it. It doesn’t matter if you had planned the next 20 years of your life, stuff happens. Jobs are lost, relationships that we counted on fail and certain milestones don’t happen when we wanted it. For instance, if you always wanted to be married, have a baby and buy that dream house by 30 didn’t happen at 30, don’t beat yourself up for it. Value what you do have


Set realistic goals. You cannot work 100 hours a week, make an 8 course dinner and spend 4 hours at the gym to fit into your size 00 jeans. It’s not realistic. Set attainable goals like working out 30 minutes a day and gradually bring it to an hour or so.


Do not compare your life with anybody else! Sure the Jones have that new car and you have a 9 year old car, but you do not know what is going on with them or how they’re managing to pay for it. How they manage might surprise you. Maybe they can’t afford it, maybe the husband bought it second hand from a friend moving far away, etc. Besides, how does that lessen anything that you have?


Remember your blessings. You may don’t have that massive house or that luxury house, but you got that adorable toddler who thinks you are the moon and the stars. Write down all the stuff you love and soon you will see a pretty big list and feel pretty grateful.


Take one day at a time. Problems will happen, but remember all problems can be fixed. It may not happen right away, but with some elbow grease, it will happen. Those credit cards bills didn’t happen overnight, so not expect that they will leave that quickly.You got to budget and pay it off in sizable installments.


Find time to mediate! Either through exercises or Pilates or simply by listening to your favorite music, let you think of nothing for 15 minutes. Make it your “me” time of the day. You can do this waking up 15 minutes earlier.


Join a club! Find time in your busy schedule to meet people that enjoy similar interests as you. Interacting with others can help to reduce stress levels.


Cut off those who are negative to you. Life is short. Why waste it with people who are mean to you or put you down? If you cannot make that relationship to work, find a way to distance yourself. If that Aunt Myrtle is always criticizing you, don’t go visit her every 2 weeks.

Jawahir of Wisdom

1. Knowledge is light; avarice ice
    Knowledge is water; this world dirt.
    A trickle of wisdom appears from beyond
    to check the vices of this world.
    Should the trickle become abundant,
    none would endure, be it virtue or vice. 
2. Sometimes in order to help He makes us cry.
    Happy the eye that sheds tears for His sake.
    Fortunate the heart that burns for His sake
    Laughter always follows tears.
    Blessed are those who understand.
    Life blossoms wherever water flows.
    Where tears are shed Divine Mercy is shown.
3. Your bounty fulfills every need.
     Why should we turn to any other?
     The scant knowledge that endures in my soul,
     deliver it from the wiles of the body’s clay
     before this clay consumes it away,
     before these winds sweep it away.
4. Come, O lover!
    Come, let Me ease your suffering.
    Let Me improve your state.
    Come, O lover!
    Come, surrender yourself to Me
    that I may give you My life
    and make you rejoice once again.


You can’t get life well in until you let go of your past failures and headaches. Everything is ok in the end. If it’s not ok, it’s not the end. It’s only the beginning………..

It hurts to love someone and not to be loved in return. But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel. Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally do meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives. It’s better to lose your pride for one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride.

Don’t cry over anyone who won’t cry over you. What do you do when the only person that can stop you crying, is the person that made you cry? We spend so much time looking for the right person to love… or finding fault with those we already love… when instead, we should be perfecting the love we give. Some thoughts are better left unsaid, some feelings are better left kept to you, but love has its way of expressing itself despite the silence. When you truly care for someone, you don’t look for faults… you don’t look for answers… you don’t look for mistakes. Instead, you fight the mistakes, you accept the faults, and you overlook excuses. The measure of love is when you love without measure.

In life, there are very rare chances that you’ll meet the person you love and who loves you in return. So once you have it, don’t ever let go… The chance might never come your way again. Love is when you take away the feeling, the passion, the romance and you find that you still care for that person. You can’t make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved, the rest is up to the person to realize your worth. If you love someone, put his name in a circle, instead of a heart, because hearts can break, but circles go on forever.

One who loves you truly, always thinks good of you, likes everything you like, likes the place you are, likes the pet you play with, likes the way you walk daily, prays for your success and respects each thoughts of yours. One, who loves you, cares you, can sacrifice everything even the love for your good and your wishes. And don’t ever disappoint them coz they have the strength to accept every decisions of the beloved one. How do you treat a person if he takes you as an inspiration? Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back.

Don’t expect love in return, just wait for it to grow in their hearts; but if it doesn’t, be content that it grew in yours. If you love someone, set it free, if it comes back it is yours, otherwise it was never yours. It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love someone – but it takes a lifetime to forget someone. Never accept love if you can’t give yourself in return. Never start a relationship you know you’ll want to end eventually. Don’t go for looks, it can deceive; don’t go for wealth – even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because only a smile makes a dark day seem bright. Love comes to those who still hope even though. They’ve been disappointed; to those who still believe even though they’ve been betrayed; to those who still need love even though they’ve been hurt before? The beginning of love is to let those us Love be perfectly themselves, and not twist them with our own image – otherwise, we love only our own reflection of ourselves that we find in them. You cannot finish a book without closing its chapters. If you want to go on, then you have to leave your past as you turn the pages of life.

Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you wants to do. Never say goodbye when you still want to try – never give up when you still feel you can take it – never say you don’t love that person anymore when you don’t really want to let go. Friendship beings with a smile, love begins with dreams, Life ends with a tear. The brightest future will always be based on forgotten past.  

You can’t get life well in until you let go of your past failures and headaches. Everything is ok in the end. If it’s not ok, it’s not the end. It’s only the beginning……..
